Fantasy Football: FFT league title defense starts with Austin Ekeler and a different draft strategy

We held our remaining 12-team, PPR draft of the season Tuesday, and I had one purpose in thoughts with this roster. I needed to draft gamers that I have not chosen a lot of this yr.

With that in thoughts, from the No. 5 general decide, I went with Austin Ekeler as a substitute of Derrick Henry. I additionally drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire within the third spherical. And, for the primary time in additional than 20 drafts, I chosen Kyle Pitts in Spherical 4.

These are three gamers I really like for this season however have not had a lot alternative to draft. Ekeler is a PPR star, and he might end as a top-five operating again. Edwards-Helaire is a breakout candidate, and I used to be thrilled to get him in Spherical 3. And Pitts may very well be superior, at the same time as a rookie tight finish, however I needed to attain to get him in Spherical 4.

I preferred the best way my staff got here collectively, particularly at operating again with Ekeler, Edwards-Helaire, Damien Harris and Darrell Henderson. My receivers are DeAndre Hopkins, Robby Anderson, Laviska Shenault, Eljah Moore, Sterling Shepard and A.J. Green. And I’ve a very good quarterback duo of Matthew Stafford and Trevor Lawrence.

This can be a high quality roster in what ought to be a aggressive league, which options members of our Fantasy Football In the present day present on CBS Sports activities HQ, in addition to our FFT Podcast. And we will probably be speaking about this league all all through the season on our applications.

I received this league final season, so hopefully I could be a repeat champion. Will probably be nice if Ekeler, Edwards-Helaire and Pitts prepared the ground since I went out of the best way to draft them on this league.

On this league, all touchdowns are price six factors, and we award one level for each 10 yards speeding and receiving and one level for each 25 yards passing. We additionally award one level for each reception. We function a beginning lineup of QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (RB/WR/TE), Okay and DST. There are also six reserve spots for a 15-round draft.
