Last Pick in a 16 Team Draft

I've got two picks, #16 and #17. Standard scoring league. 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 K,1 DEF, and 5 bench spots.

Currently thinking RB/WR (like Chris Johnson/Brandon Marshall or MoJo/Julio Jones since I think they'll be available) but wanted to see what you guys thought?

I wouldn't be opposed to a RB/RB but I'm kind of meh about RBs available at this spot besides CJ, who I HOPE will be there.
go RB/RB. If you don't, you'll be lucky to get Gore or Bush at 32/33, otherwise you're already looking at RB3's like Murray and Miller. On the other hand at 32/33 you may still have a shot at WR's like Andre Johnson, Bowe, or Colston.

All the mocks I've done don't even have Gore or Bush available at 32/33. They have guys like Bradshaw, DeAngelo Williams, Montee Ball, Giovani Bernard, Daryl Richardson instead. Receivers are like Amendola, Nicks, Nelson, Reggie Wayne.

I just thought it'd be nice to grab a elite WR since they'll be ripe for the picking at my spot
They also have the top 12 QBs all being drafted by the time I pick again at 64/65. So my first four picks have to consist of my QB because by the time 64/65 comes around, I'm going to be left with Vick, Dalton, and Big Ben and I don't want to take any of them as my starting QB lol

So RB, RB, WR, QB could be done...or RB, WR, RB, QB...

See personally I rather roll with two pretty good RB's and Wayne and Nicks as my RB's.

CJ/MJD + Wayne/Nicks >>> CJ/Bradshaw + Julio/Wayne

I would imagine humans are smarter than drafting 2 QB's within the first 6 rounds, then again (no offense to y'all) I have seen some people here post their teams with Kaep AND Griffin ... . You can live with Vick as your QB, believe me.

16 teams so if 12 of those teams decide to draft a QB in the 3rd round then there goes 12 of em! I really wanted to double up and get either Luck/Kap and then Vick or Freeman later on but the mocks (which I've done with humans, Yahoo mock drafts) have all ended where I have to take a QB at 32/33 or I end up with Vick/Freeman/BigBen/Dalton and I'm very MEH about that

This is my second time in this league and the league is very "runny". AKA if two or three teams pick the same position then the whole collective will follow. Last year there was a HUGE run made on QBs in the 2nd round and by the time my pick came along, the best QB available were guys like Big Ben and Alex Smith. So I'm very concerned about runs, especially one happening at the QB spot...
Go RB/RB then WR/WR unless there is a run on QB's. You should be able to get a good QB in the 5th.
So the draft happened...heres how it ended for me

QB Andrew Luck
WR Marques Colston
WR Kenny Britt
RB Chris Johnson
RB Maurice Jones-Drew
TE Jordan Cameron
Flex RB Shane Vereen
K Greg Zeurlin
DEF St. Louis Rams
BN WR Chris Givens
BN WR Reuben Randle
BN WR Kenny Stills
BN WR Markus Wheaton
BN RB Phillip Tanner

My receivers are a pretty big ? IMO and there was one guy who picked 4 spots ahead of me who grabbed 3 guys I was targetting for that very same round (Antonio Brown, Kenbrell Thompkins, and Jermichael Finley)
Not bad

Never done a 16 team league. Post someone else's roster to compare
16? Pfft. Try 20 teams with IDPs. That'll put some hair on your chest!
If you don't go RB/RB you will lose all credibility I have for you as a fantasy football player G.O.

And your one of my good dudes
