We're looking for touchdowns in a non-PPR league, so I started this draft in a very unconventional way for me -- I took a wide receiver first and a tight end second. Hopkins and Gronkowski possess huge upside and were too good to pass up.
If you take Gronkowski in the first or second round of your draft, you must take a backup tight end during Rounds 8-10. Kittle has TE1 upside in the 10th round. If Gronkowski stays healthy, Kittle is a nice trade chip.
Never take a quarterback early -- unless that quarterback is Rodgers and you can get him during the fourth round, as I did in this mock.
Only taking one running back during the first five rounds of a draft is not something I recommend, but Guice should be the goal-line back for Washington, as should Mack for Indianapolis. Lynch is a touchdown-maker for what should be a better run-first offense in Oakland. My hope is Guice and Lynch will get me through Ingram's suspension.
Overall, I like this squad for a standard, non-PPR league. The wide receivers are strong, and once Ingram comes back, the running backs should score a lot of touchdowns.
