Reach: Colin Kaepernick (Back to the Future)
How can it not be him? I know this keeper pick was made months ago during a bit of spirited conversation between friends but considering some of the talent on BTTF’s roster that had to be released (Beckham Jr., Adrian Peterson to name a few..), this one will sting.
Bargain: Everyone else
Reach: Ben Roethlisberger (Absolute Chaos)
The 3rd QB off the board? Can’t endorse that, especially when you know how hot and cold he can be.
Bargain: Adrian Peterson (18-1)
A 1st round talent/value in the 2nd round is too big to ignore.
Reach: Ameer Abdullah (12.5 PSI..)
I know you’re picking at the turn and may have thought he wouldn’t be there at the turn of round 4/5 but the rookie portion of a RBBC may not be the safest roll of the dice. He’s got talent but will he pay dividends?
Bargain: Rob Gronkowski (The Other Guys)
Reach: Joseph Randle (LXG)
He’s been more successful showing up on the police blotter than he has on the field. Shows you bought into the offseason narrative about the Cowboys offensive line.
Bargain: Mike Evans (12.5PSI..)
At the end of the 4th round? Thievery.
Reach: Teddy Bridgewater (12.5PSI…)
I praise you one pick and rip you the next. Bridgewater had buzz but he would’ve been there 4 rounds later. Talent acquisition in the early rounds is key, not just names.
Bargain: LeSean McCoy (LXG)
Based on talent, name value and workload, this could definitely pay off. Just not in Week 1 (or so I’m hoping!)
Reach: None, really
Bargain: None, really.
Reach: Tyler Eifert (Absolute Chaos)
Nah playboy. Can’t condone this one at all. Way too early for a guy who’s not guaranteed to be a top target on his own team.
Bargain: Tom Brady (The Crownies)
Rolling the dice paid off. Would’ve been a reach/risky stash if he stayed suspended but since he gave Goodell the Heisman, the pick looks MUCH better!
Reach: Houston DEF (Corporal Punishment) & Rob Housler (12.5PSI)
Can’t blame my godson for that pick. Don’t get gassed by those clips on HBO. JJ Watt’s offensive TD’s don’t count!
Rob Housler will be off the team by Wednesday night. Week 2 at latest. For talent that you can dispose of that quick, you can’t burn a single digit round on it.
Bargain: DeSean Jackson (LXG)
A homerun hitter regardless of who’s throwing the ball. Could be a sneaky contributor all season long.
Reach: Dwayne Allen (LXG)
Dwayne Allen isn’t guaranteed to be the most prolific pass catcher on his own team PLUS a second tight end right after in round 10? No bueno.
Bargain: Jonathan Stewart (Saint Marxsmen)
For someone who could be an RB1, to get him this late is amazing value.
Reach: Marvin Jones (12.5PSI..)
Mercy, mercy me…what a reach. Considering some of the talent that went in later rounds. Marvin could’ve waited. What’s going on? (See what I did there?)
Bargain: Eric Decker (The Other Guys)
Good value at this round. Could put up some good numbers in East Rutherford.
Reach: Bishop Sankey (12.5PSI..)
Catholic priests hit the hole harder than Bishop does.
Bargain: Melvin Gordon (BTTF) & John Brown (Absolute Chaos)
Potential to blow up at a decent round price.
Reach: Derek Carr (LXG)
No one wanted him TBH. No one. Not a single solitary manager in this league wanted him.
Reach: Steven Hauschka (Back To The Future)
As much as I love the player, it’s two rounds too early.
Bargains: CJ Spiller (18-1) / Cam Newton (Absolute Chaos) / Giovani Bernard – (12.5 PSI..)
All great bargains for the round picked. If they suck, they go back to the waivers but rolling the dice here could come up sevens.
Bargains: Eddie Royal (18-1) & Devonta Freeman (The Crownies)
No need to reuse superlatives. You get the drift!
Bargains: Michael Floyd (Saint Marxsman) & Isaiah Crowell (The Crownies)
SEE ROUND 14
Reaches/Bargains – NONE.
and that ends part one
stay tuned for pt 2, coming soon.
