I have done several mock drafts in which I find myself grabbing Royce Freeman in the 5th round and getting Devantae Booker in the late 11th or early 12th round. I’m starting to think it’s better to own this backfield than try and grab Nyheim HInes, Giovani Bernard, or Theo Riddick and hope for an injury or a break through. What are yall thoughts?
Is this redraft of Dynasty. If its redraft, I’d say no. You limit your own upside to doing that. I’d rather grab a cuff for another team.
And even if its not, I’m not drafting booker. He sucks and has had his chances. Even if Freeman busts, Booker isn’t even a lock for a role/starter. Would much rather have Bernard who’s shown he can step in and produce RB2 numbers if mixon goes down.
Hines isn’t really a cuff, he’s a scat back. Never going to be 3-downs. Would rather have Mack/Wilkins.
