I’m in an 8-man, 1/2pt PPR league and have the first pick in the draft. After doing some mocks, after I draft one of the obvious elite RBs, the 3 players that usually fall to me on the turn that intrigue me the most are Michael Thomas, Christian McCaffrey and Rob Gronkowski.
I hate to plan my draft solely by position, but I know that if I don’ t snag McCaffrey here, I’m going to go into the WR-heavy portion of the draft without an RB2, so I’ll either have to take a player I don’t love (Mixon/McKinnon/Drake) instead of a solid WR. or just punt on the RB2 position until the later rounds. I’d rather not do either of those things.
With as deep as WR is, it it ridiculous to pass on Thomas here? I feel like it absolutely still is.
So I guess my real question is do you guys think Gronkowski is so much better than the rest of his position that he deserves me passing on one of McCaffrey/Thomas? If so, who? Keep in mind Ertz/Kelce never fall to me on my next pick(s) so I’ll probably wait to the end of the draft to take a far inferior tight end.
