NFL teams passed for over 100,000 yards in 2018 and most of it went to wide receivers, thus this is the deepest position group year after year. Due to this depth, you can select an anchor WR early then load up on running backs. The rise of the RBBC has also made the Zero RB an effective but tricky to execute strategy.
Target charts are nice tie-breakers if you’re stuck deciding between two players. New coordinators or teammates can have drastic impact on projected targets both good and bad, so be aware of changes.
Like last year, I’m going to break this down into two parts. This one will focus on quarterbacks and running backs.
Before I get started, I have a few helpful links you can keep open if you’re drafting online.
It’s nice to have a schedule grid handy to keep bye week business straight.
You want to peruse an injury list before drafting to keep up on the latest status impacting health issues. Some poor slobs drafted Lamar Miller 30 seconds before his knee blew out today. No helping those people, but the ones who drafted Miller 30 minutes after the fact are going to feel like jackasses.
I also keep Twitter up during drafts to keep myself apprised of fluid situations, such as holdouts, injuries, out the blue retirements.
