Looking for some help with my 1st Startup draft

Longtime lurker here, doing my first ever startup draft. My only other full dynasty team, was a team i inherited.

My first pick was 1.3; and my 1st three picks were Kamara, Montgomery, and Kittle. it's an email draft, and i'm up in two more picks, 4.10, then i have 5.03. Best available are:

Calvin Ridley
Nkeal Harry
Darrell Henderson
Andrew Luck
Oj Howard
David Njoku

Pretty standard scoring, except TEs get 1.5 ppr; RB (1-4), WR (2-6), and TE (1-4); with minimums of 1, 2, and 1

Leaning towards Ridley and Henderson assuming both make it to me. Harry seems a bit risky as my 1st WR. However, based on the ppr for TEs, i could also grab a 2nd TE with my 5th pick.

    The order in which you posted those players is how I would target them,

  • rabidbucfanrabidbucfan Posts: 3,950

    Nice grabs

    I would be targeting Hockenson earlier than later. Best TE in years. Wait on QB. Get a passable vet and use 2020 picks to get one. Do not get overly focused on youth, either...

  • wickerkat1212wickerkat1212 Posts: 1,684
    Agree on Hock. You probably have a few rounds.
    D3:
    QB—Roethlisberger, Mariota, Allen, Tannehill, Rudolph
    RB—EE, Cohen, Henry, EMcGuire, JSamuels, Pollard, Adams
    WR—MThomas, Diggs, Harry, Hardman, Zay, Amendola, Meredith, Chark
    TE—Burton, Doyle, Knox, Jonnu, Shaheen
    PK—Zuerlain
    DEF—Ravens

    D4:
    QB—Watson, Winston, Fitzpatrick
    RB—Conner, Cohen, Howard, DWilliams, JSamuels, Snell, CEdmonds, JJackson
    WR—Hill, Allen, Golladay, Jeffery, Amendola, Miller, Cain, Dorsett, Perriman
    TE—Olsen, IThomas, Gesicki, McDonald, Waller
    PK—Gostkowski
    DEF—Rams, Jags

    i think that could be the toughest part for me. i'm not in a ton of leagues, and so used to 'just' a rookie draft.

    back on the clock. Harry and Henderson are still available. here are the highest ranked players:

    Nkeal Harry
    Darrell Henderson
    Leonard Fournette
    Miles Sanders
    David Njoku
    Deebo Samuel
    Kareem Hunt
    Tj Hockenson
    Cam Newton
    Carson Wentz

    Thanks again for all of the input.
  • TheDudeTheDude Posts: 2,012
    Hunt, Hockenson, Njoku, Henderson

    I like upside for Miles Sanders...

    Harry will be there in the next round I think... don't have many hype on him with the latest news...
  • TBLTBL Posts: 802
    I would go Singletary here personally, but I can't argue Hendy or hoarding another TE either.
  • duk_hunterduk_hunter Posts: 34
    thanks everyone. 'panicked' and went henderson. Matt Ryan, James Washington, Ebron, and Hooper went overnight, and i'm back on the clock. Still have pretty much the same group available. I also added some other QBs:

    Nkeal Harry
    Leonard Fournette
    Miles Sanders
    David Njoku
    Deebo Samuel
    Kareem Hunt
    Tj Hockenson
    Cam Newton
    Carson Wentz
    Brees
    Roth
  • bruceflashbruceflash Posts: 77
    Miles Sanders or Nkeal Harry
  • G_MenG_Men Posts: 2,584
    Out of that group I like:

    Hunt
    Hockenson
    Njoku
    Sanders
    Deebo
  • duk_hunterduk_hunter Posts: 34
    thanks again everyone, went Hunt. Now the long wait before i'm back on the clock.

    So, correct me if I'm wrong but your roster so far is....

    RB = Kamara, Monty, Hendy, Hunt (edited)
    WR = Ridley
    TE = Kittle, Howard

    IMO it's time to round out your starting lineup with either a WR or QB at this point.

    Wr are already thin. I like Ridley ast a WR2 (or 3), not WR1.

    you are correct, and yeah, my biggest miss/weakness by far is WR.

    some of the other WRs are: Sammy Watkins; Allen Robinson; Robert Foster; Dante Pettis

    You will most likely need to trade for a WR1 at this point.

    Robinson has a lot of upside, I'd grab him. Watkins the same, but crowded team. Foster and Pettis are almost fliers at this point for me. Is Harry gone? Metcalf? You may have to take some chances on high upside guys.

    I wouldn't be worried about WR at all....

    Pretty standard scoring, except TEs get 1.5 ppr; RB (1-4), WR (2-6), and TE (1-4); with minimums of 1, 2, and 1

    Can start up to 4 RBs and those have some excellent high end youthful RBs in this roster.

    RB = Kamara, Monty, Hendy, Hunt (edited)
    WR = Ridley
    TE = Kittle, Howard

    At a TE 1.5 premium league, his line up will likely be both TEs, 3 RBs and 2 WRs, so really one more filler WR and a QB and this roster is very good IMO. Could WR be better, sure at price of those RBs... Harry still available?

    Good points. Yeah, I just suggested Harry. Good idea.

    This.. his roster is looking great.

    Loaded at RB talent for now and the future.
    Ridley will be a stud in the making.
    Two top 5 TE in a heavy scoring league.

    I’m liking it!

    Thanks! I appreciate all the help and feedback. Harry is still there, and am planning on him for my next pick. looking at QB, probably Brees, next, and then will have fingers crossed for Hockenson.

    Maybe go younger than Brees? He's heavily regressing. They are passing less in NO.
