In an auction style draft, i’ll make the case for spending BIG (above projected value) on David Johnson or Lev Bell and I want to see if it holds up.
Considering a 12 team,1/2 pt. PPR league I’m willing to spend really whatever it takes for DJ or Lev Bell. Conservatively that number could be $75 out of a $200 budget. WHICH EVEN IF IT IS THAT HIGH I believe (based on how well I know my league) that’s about $15 more than let’s say what Lesean Mccoy or Devonta Freeman would go for. Take into account DJ put up over 100 fantasy points than Shady and over 120 points on Freeman, making DJ essentially an RB1 + WR3/Flex rolled into one. Also DJ’s production is going nowhere, the only risk I see here is injury related. So really, why wouldn’t you pay up for the top two guys if it’s only going to cost you an added $15 in auction?? Especially if I can snag some value WRs such as Crabtree or Diggs and a late round QB. Let me hear your thoughts!
