I’ve had the chance to participate in a couple of Main Events over the last seven days. With a lot of excellent questions in the forums on where I’m seeing players go and what I’m doing in certain situations, here’s a quick look at some of the trends from these drafts. The best start went to a squad that landed DeAndre Hopkins/Julio Jones out of the No. 8 slot. Jones was selected after Keenan Allen, Michael Thomas, and Davante Adams at wide receiver, and after Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette at running back. While all of those picks are individually defensible, they’re all individually surprising. The WR picks stand in stark contrast to best ball ADP (which tends to be much more RB heavy).
