Get with the times, people.

I am really curious to see where Browns players go in my leagues this year. Right now, Jarvis and Gordon are at WR19 and WR20 based on ADP.

I probably will stay away from both in redraft. Too much uncertainty. Same with the Browns' RBs this year. I like all three, but that's not a good thing when you're looking for fantasy performance. I feel like all three guys will have decent but unspectacular seasons, provided everyone stays healthy.

In keeper leagues, I think Chubb could be a good late get. Also, he will be seeing action this year. So if he drops, he would be a great addition.

I am in a 2-player ppr keeper league w/friends here in Columbus and I already have my 2 starting RB's as keepers: Hunt (6th) and Kamara (11th).

So even if I "reach" for Chubb a little higher than he is going currently, not a bad pick.

Gordon will go high b/c of potential.

Landry will be overdrafted b/c of his crazy catch rate the past 4 years, but I mean as long as Gordon, Njoku, and our RB's stay healthy, of course that will go down.

But I would take him in the 4th-on.

I am doing a best ball slow draft in a league similar to the Scott Fish Bowl. The winner gets an entry into the actual Scott Fish Bowl, which is a giant contest that all of the top FF guys get to enter. Look it up.

It's superflex and TE premium scoring. 25 man roster.

1.08 RB Melvin Gordon
2.05 TE Rob Gronkowski
3.08 RB Christian McCaffery
4.05 QB Drew Brees
5.08 QB Alex Smith
6.05 WR Demaryius Thomas
7.08 WR Jarvis Landry
8.05 WR Golden Tate
9.08 RB Carlos Hyde
10.05 QB Andy Dalton
11.08 WR Julian Edelman
12.05 RB Chris Thompson
13.08 WR Kelvin Benjamin
14.05 TE Austin Hooper
15.08 RB Bilal Powell
16.05 WR Rishard Matthews
17.08 RB Spencer Ware
18.05 WR Christian Kirk
19.08 WR Albert Wilson
20.05 TE Jonnu Smith
21.08 RB Rob Kelley
22.05 TE Garret Celek

In a half PPR league what Browns should I circle in the rankings?

Gordon is still a risk.

Landry seems like a quality WR2 but maybe best at Flex

The RBs are a scary situation, I'm guessing Hyde goes first of the 3 but Duke or Chubb will probably have the better fantasy season because [fantasy football]

Tyrod may be a sneaky start if you plan to go the no QB route. He's going to rack up run yardage, that's a bonus 3-5 points, and he's working with his best supporting cast ever.

In a 12-14 team league, I'm starting Tyrod and going the no QB route.

Deciding on a 3rd QB in superflex league...go with Tyrod or Jameis? I know Winston is suspended, but I'm not too worried. 6 pt per TD.

I'm leaning Jameis.

Man, Jordan Matthews is done for the 2018 season already. Sucks. Thought he was gonna be in line for a potential big year on the Pats.

I've been in a league where it's been around for so long, and the commissioner that founded it never made any type of constitution. He just runs it as he likes and makes rulings as he goes. For a while he didn't allow trades. He started doing them then this year said he's not doing them again.

What the hell is that? What fun is being a pretend GM and not being allowed to make trades? That's a big part of the fun.

Anyway, I'm probably not doing that league this year. Sucks.

That sounds like a good choice to me. Fuck that guy.

Fuuuuuck. My old fraternity league drafts live every year. This year, we had to do it super early (last weekend) due to schedules. I picked up Derrius Guice as my RB2 thinking he'd blow up... Turns out he blew up his knee.

We did, however, put in an "insurance policy" because of our early draft time... Basically, I get a free add that doesn't affect waiver priority. Do I go Perine or Kelley as a replacement for him (hoping I pick the right one) or do I go with D'onta Foreman in Houston and hope he gets healthy?

Do you need to pick right away or by the beginning of the season?

I like the rotoworld forums. Pretty good for tidbits about players.
