Fantasy Football 2018 Draft

Since I won the Superbowl last season (probably the only one I will ever win being a Lions fan !!) I get the first pick in the draft next week.

Since I coasted to the last season win on the coattails of Todd Gurley, I am pretty sure I will pick him first.

But, being a Michigan State Alum, I am tempted to take Le'veon Bell.

 

Any thoughts????

 

TIA for all suggestions!!

You'd be safe with either.  But the "experts" say we shouldn't expect this season to be as good as their last.  I have 8th pick in my draft, and I don't know who is going to be available to me.  Very excited to start fantasy football!

I always get nervous about the guys like Bell and the Rams Aaron Donald who hold out of camp. Injuries tend to hit the holdouts more than the guys in camp. I'd go with Gurley.

That was def part of my thinking, @gardenman.  When players hold out, injuries are much more common!

 

Thanks for the input

Agree, @LuvMyLab.  I suppose I cannot expect another season like last year!

I think either one is a safe bet.

 

Thanks!!

Who did you pick? Hope it wasn't Bell as he may sit his fanny down for the first 10 games.

I went with Gurley!!  Part of my choice was exactly that reason, @Jilly Marie.  Although I doubt Mgmt will sit him if he ever does report.

Good job.  My hub had the 1st pick in his fantasy league and he went with Gurley too.
