Head to head, live draft. I haven't won a championship in years, and by golly, I'm hungry! Give me advice!
how many teams? standard? PPR? give me some details and I'll try to give you some tips. I'm assuming you don't know your draft position yet

ok I made this mistake yesterday in a league not realizing that there were 3WR's and no flex. This changes strategy for me. You still got RB in the first round but you try to get one of those elite WR's with your 2nd pick (CJ, Dez, Marshall, AJ, Julio). I'd then go RB again in the 3rd and the 4th can be WR/QB or even TE if Graham is sitting there. You'll be able to get third tier RB's (Bradshaw, Bernard, DeAngelo, Mendenhall, Richardson, Vereen, Ivory) around the 6th round or so.

I'll stay disciplined on this one. In the past I'll always see someone early that I should wait on, but grab. I always grab QBs early, but not this time.

yeah those settings aren't QB friendly, I'd even try to get one of the top 5 TE's before I go QB, but obviously it's all about how the draft unfolds
I think going RB, RB with the first to picks is the best way to go. Depends where you pick honestly. Even try and grab a 3rd RB somewhat early before the talent is gone. Wait in a QB! There are plenty of good QBs this year so don't feel the need to jump on one early. Even if 3/4 go in the first round. Still wait!

I noticed that. So, I like the RB, WR/RB, RB, idea.
1. Draft best available rb
2. Repeat step 1
3. Draft a running qb
RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, QB, WR, Depthhhhhhh

Trust me fro. I got you
