It was a bad week for Running Backs and there are so many question marks amongst the top runners this season. Zeke and Gordon are both holding out for who knows how long. Gurley's knee issues, Barkley's receiver issues, bad offensive lines, it's a mess!
I decide to do a mock draft using the zero-RB strategy. Basically we use our first 5 picks on 3 WRs, an elite QB and TE. We wait until pick 6 to take our first RB. I use My Perfect Fantasy Draft to select players.
Let me just say, I don't hate this team! My WRs are top notch and I got Baker Mayfield in the 5th and Kittle in the 3rd. I ended up taking 6 RBs and some have decent upside but they are a weak bunch overall. On the flip side, my WRs are spectacular!
This is a team that will be competitive this season. I'm happy I tried it. I'm not sure I would be able to wait so long to take an RB, though in an actual draft, but this strategy can work if you just don't want to deal with the risk associated with Running Backs.
