Didn't see a dedicated thread for general fantasy football this year, so decided to throw this one together.

I'm really liking some of the rookie RBs this year. How do you guys have Josh Jacobs, David Montgomery, Devin Singletary, Derrius Guice*, Miles Sanders, Darrell Henderson, Justice Hill, Alex Mattison, and Damian Harris ranked?

Right now, I'm thinking:
  1. Jacobs
  2. Montgomery
  3. Sanders
  4. Guice
  5. Singletary
  6. Henderson
  7. Mattison
  8. Harris
  9. Hill

I'd say that's a fairly strong ranking.

Sanders is my RB1 based on talent, although Jacobs is obviously in the position to be the most fantasy relevant this year because Gruden probably isn't using a first round pick on a RB to not use him.

Also think you've got Hill way too low. He could be a real weapon in that Baltimore offense. He runs a 4.4 and has ridiculous burst. He also showed in college that he can be a pass-catcher. That's a modern NFL satellite back. He won't be relevant every week, but I bet he wins you a couple of best ball weeks if you play that format.

So where does Josh Gordon rank among WRs not that he's been reinstated?

He showed some really strong numbers last year, especially in game Gronk didn't play.

I have Chris Thompson at the end of my bench, anyone think he’s worth dropping for a flyer on Justice Hill, Damien Harris or Justin Jackson?

Who are your other backs? If you're strong there I'd probably rather take a chance on a high upside guy like Hill or Harris than Thompson, who is a best ball player imo. A guy you can't comfortably start in regular leagues because he only has about four or five weeks worth of startable production in him and it's impossible to accurately figure out which four or five weeks those are when you're setting your lineup.

True. My other backs are Cook, Conner, Sanders and Drake. Plus Cook’s handcuff.

Not in any dynasty leagues, but I am picking 2nd in a 12 team league this year, .5 ppr. Extremely torn on which back to go with between Kamara and McCaffrey. My gut tells me they'll both be great, but I obviously want the better one. Pretty much impossible to recover from a poor pick in that slot.

Also completed baffled with where to go on the back swing at 23 and 26. I doubt an elite TE will be available, and the WR options in that range seem pretty blah. Would love some advice/input.

You think Barkley is a dead lock to go first?

We're getting our draft position in my 12-man league soon, and if I get the first pick, I think I'm going to go for either McCaffrey or Kamara over Saquon.

I think I'd go McCaffrey in my league with the first overall. Kamara is a close second, and then Barkley is third.

Count me in on McCaffrey as the number one overall. Zeke would be two if he weren't holding out, but unless that changes before my drafts I'm going Barkley at two.

Yeah I'm 95% Barkley goes 1 in that league. If not, I'll take him myself. He feels like one of those rare guys where his talent wins out no matter what the situation around him looks like.

My keeper league commissioner decided to change it from a keeper league to a dynasty league two seasons after starting the league. A league in which I could keep Kamara for a 13th or something. His defense was "yeah but I had Philip Lindsay for a 10th so basically the same"

Do you still have Kamara?

He's wiping rosters, no keepers, fresh dynasty start.

He said its too hard to do keepers during the draft on ESPN.

Loves to complain about the commish "work" but makes things complicated and refuses help.
