Draft slot selection for 2019

I am able to pick any draft slot between 8-12. 12 team league, re draft year 1. Keep the player in the round you take going forward. Was thinking of taking 12, having the 2 picks, and taking my favorite player second to lock in the better keep round going forward. Thoughts? This will be a 3 year league with 3 keepers FYI

    I like 12 exactly for that reason. Two in a row, not just early, but often. Just don't be afraid to reach at any point, since it'll be 24 pick before it gets back to you. Maybe Tyreek/MThomas + Kelce here?

    I would take #8 I think. Being 5 slots earlier for all odd rounds will add up

    and the 5 slots later in the odd rounds won't add up? I'm missing the logic here....

    12 is not a bad idea as you get the best round 2 player for keeper reasons. Look at the RB drop off come next year and I'g allow that to weigh in a good bit if you think there is any way of landing a top RB. I doubt it at 8-12 but you never know.

    Logic is I like the higher pick in the earlier round.

    Logic is I like the higher pick in the earlier round.

    True... If you draft at 1.01, then you also draft at 2.12 and 3.01. Ya, it's a long wait after you make your 1st pick, but, you get a double hit when there should still be considerable value at 2.12 and 3.01.

    In redraft, there are good and bad aspects to any draft position.

    For me, I play dynasty and limited (2 or 3) keeper. In my keeper league, the advantage as to where you draft in round 1 depends upon who you might keep that will cost you your 1st round pick. The better that player is, the later you would want to draft in round 1

    In the 10 team keeper league, the bottom 4 teams play a 3 week round-robin tournament for picks 1.01 - 1.04. Then, as teams are eliminated in the playoffs, they play each other for the choice of drafting at 1.05 or 1.06 and 1.07 or 1.08. So, if a team is keeping a player that will cost it a round 1 pick, then, choosing the later pick, gets them a boost in round 2. I happened to win the round-robin, so I will send Zeke back to the draft board and either draft him or one of the other great RBs that cannot be kept due to the keeper rules. I also will keep 3 players who will cost me a pick after round 5. The possible keepers include Guice for 12.10, Carson for 9.01, Damien Williams for 15.01 and Cohen for 13.01 plus a couple other possibilities

  • Normally, I would tell you to have Tiers for the top players and take the lowest position in the first tier. Then you still get a player of similar value, but then you get the earlier 2nd round pick.

    However in your case (where you can keep them for the same round next year), I would consider getting 1st choice of the 2nd round.

    In the end though, I think you need to play for this year until you are officially eliminated - then start trading for good keepers to the teams fighting for the playoffs.

    I agree, if you are going to pick late 1st, I want an early 2nd.
