|Description||Building a fantasy football team around Bucs WR Mike Evans
but it can offer some clues about what decisions many fantasy owners will face in their drafts.,There really aren't any ironclad conclusions to draw from a single 14-team fantasy football draft in the middle of June
We've previously covered the major trends and the first-round picks in the Fantasy Sports Trade Association league.
David Johnson goes No. 1 overall in FSTA fantasy football draft
So let's take a look at some of the strategy that came out of colleague Howard Kamen and I picking in the No. 7 overall spot.
Although it was tempting to take a running back, start 3 WRs and a RB/WR/TE). I even put out a Twitter poll before the draft to gauge public opinion.,[url=http://bit.ly/2qaoKbm]Lavonte David Jersey[/url], the best options were at wide receiver in this particular format (full point-per-reception scoring
Mike Evans was the choice -- partly because he led the NFL in targets last season (171) and was third among wideouts in fantasy points per game (12.8).,[url=http://bit.ly/2rHUR5p]Authentic O. J. Howard Jersey[/url],In the end
and we've already seen how much of a rapport he has with Evans. ,[url=http://bit.ly/2s7Wh9K]Authentic Justin Evans Jersey[/url],The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have another year of experience under the belt of quarterback Jameis Winston
The arrival of free agent receiver (and noted deep threat) DeSean Jackson could also help take some of the pressure off Evans and improve his catch ratio.
With No. 1 running backs in short supply already (LeSean McCoy and Jay Ajayi went eighth and ninth overall),[url=http://bit.ly/2s8iNPI]Chris Godwin Jersey[/url], Todd Gurley or Isaiah Crowell. , the choice with the second pick came down to Lamar Miller
Terribly underused in Miami, but when is that NOT the case with a workhorse running back. , Miller had a career-high 268 carries in his first season with the Houston Texans -- and that was despite missing the final two games with various injuries. Staying healthy will be huge for the 26-year-old Miller
two tight ends were already off the board when the pick came back in Round 3. But the top-ranked one on my board was still there. ,Interestingly
000-yard receivers Jackson and Pierre Garcon leaving via free agency. And Reed was a favorite of Redskins QB Kirk Cousins. Only Rob Gronkowski averaged more fantasy points at the position last season than Reed's 8.7.,Jordan Reed is the top returning pass catcher in Washington with 1
Reed's injury history is a huge concern, but tight end is a deep position -- and it shouldn't be difficult to find a replacement if he does miss time. So why not get a tight end much later? Because it's a position where there are few difference-makers. And Reed is one of them. (In taking him,[url=http://bit.ly/2qaoKbm]Authentic Lavonte David Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2pDQeVd]Authentic Mike Evans Jersey[/url], we passed on the likes of WRs Terrelle Pryor,[url=http://bit.ly/2pDQeVd]Mike Evans Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2rHUR5p]O. J. Howard Jersey[/url],[url=http://bit.ly/2s7Wh9K]Justin Evans Jersey[/url], Donte Moncrief and Allen Robinson,[url=http://bit.ly/2s8iNPI]Authentic Chris Godwin Jersey[/url], as well as RBs Christian McCaffrey and Eddie Lacy.)
WR Emmanuel Sanders and RB Mark Ingram. ,The next two picks were the top remaining players on my board at their positions
Both have their flaws, but who doesn't once you hit pick No. 50? We don't know what Denver's passing game will look like, but Sanders in Round 4 seems like a better choice than Demaryius Thomas at the end of Round 2. (Passed on: QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Ty Montgomery, WRs Julian Edelman and Martavis Bryant.)
but he's a good receiver in a pass-first offense. And he averaged over five yards per carry a year ago with 10 total touchdowns.,Ingram will face some competition from newly signed Adrian Peterson
