My logic was Matthews is glass (thank god, as he broke his collarbone 15 minutes after i made that decision!), McFadden is coming back from LisFranc surgery, Trent Richardson had surgery and is a rookie and on the browns, Jamaal is coming off ACL and will split carries, and I dont like MJD. Jimmy Graham ****ed his back up yesterday in practice, too.
So the highest player I had at the time were WRs. Fitz or Jennings. I love Fitz, but I dont trust the QB(s?) or AZ defense to help him. I figure I'll have a lot more opportunity for points with Jennings and the Pack, even if its spread around.
In the second, I had to go Gronk. Graham was injured, and the point advantage I will have over everyone else's TE's is immense, and could help to win tight games.
24 picks later, RB was scarce. Since everyone had loaded up at RB, i figured other position groups would go off the board, so I grabbed AJ Green - remember, we have 3 WR's + flex. I was able to get Turner in the 4th.
Didnt have a ton of options, but I agree, not a stellar team. I feel comfortable that I did well considering how the board fell.
