In a PPR 12-team snaking redraft, I have been practicing with the last pick in the first round. Lately, I see Nick Chubb and Antonio Gibson both falling to that spot. With the 1.12 and 2.1, I can’t resist grabbing both of them, even with top tier receivers falling there too. I know it screws up my overall grade, but I’m not walking away from two first round RB’s. Sadly, I doubt I’ll see that in my actual fantasy draft Friday.
Some of the players I passed up include Darren Waller, Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, and Calvin Ridley. Any of these guys could outperform Chubb and/or Gibson, but getting 2 RB’s with top 5 potential is just too rich an opportunity to pass up, even for a sure thing like Waller or Adams. I can get WR’s later with top 5 potential, but RB’s like that are harder to find, especially ones with a solid floor.
