Brees at #8 in Rd 1.

Then top 6 RBs and WRs 1-3 are gone.

But Graham is there at Rd 2, #17


Brady and then Gronk?

Get RBs in Rd 3 and Rd 4.
QB: Brees/Rivers
RBs: Gurley/Coleman/D Washington/Dixon/Ty

I like it and would have loved for it to happen to my team, but Graham and Gronk went 2-1 and 2-2 in my league.

If you can make the double dip happen, I am all for it. Otherwise take a RB in round 2.

My 2 cents

12 team league, start 1 QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 Flex W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DEF, 4 IDP, 4 man bench. Yahoo 1 pt. PPR scoring
QB: T Romo
WR: C Johnson, B Marshall, J Gordon, A Brown
RB: L McCoy, D Martin, R Bush, D Sprolles
TE: M Bennett
K: B Walsh
Def: Cincy
IDP: L Kuechly, L David, M Kendricks, S Lee

12 team league, start 1 QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 Flex W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DEF, 7 man bench. ESPN PPR scoring.

WR: K Allen, A Brown, C Shorts, P Harvin

Bruce that could of happened in our league this last weekend, but the Brady owner (5th pick overall) decided to take Graham coming back in the second. I with the 4th overall pick decided to pass on Gronky in round 2, thought it was too high for him.

I do think the Brees/Graham connection would pay off a bit more than the Brady/Gonky connection. I just think there a lot of weapons in NE and even though Gronky put up strong numbers last year I think he might have a tough time backing those up this season. Brady has 2 TEs, Welker and now Brandon Lloyd on the field. Unlike Graham, New Orleans no longer has Meachem in town. Colston is back, healthy but Graham could be his #1 target depending on the role Sproles plays.

Not sure how your league drafts, but there is a good chance Brees or Brady won't be there at #8. I would suspect both TEs to be around at #17. Coming back in the third you might have a shot at Charles or Jackson for your #1 RB. If you can get either pair, I say give it a shot!

If you do a QB/TE combo, then need backups for the bye week.
