After the news about Andrew Luck's retirement and Lamar Miller's torn ACL, here is what a draft could now look like.
I will start here: I am ALL IN on Dalvin Cook for 2019. I have him ranked as the fourth running back on my board. He will stay there until Ezekiel Elliott reports to the Dallas Cowboys. Until then, I am out of the Elliott business.
I took Cook in Round 1 with the 11th pick. Nick Chubb and James Conner were still on the board, but I took a chance and got Cook. I would have hated myself if I passed on Cook and he was not there for me three picks later, so I jumped. It worked out that I was able to draft Cook and Conner in this mock. I love that! Who will have two running backs like me? No one.
I went with three wide receivers next: Julian Edelman (PPR stud), Brandin Cooks and Jarvis Landry. That is a solid receiver corps.
I grabbed Deshaun Watson in Round 6 just to see how it would turn out. I didn't hate myself afterward, so giddy up! Tight end Austin Hooper in Round 6 is solid. The backs I drafted after Round 6 -- Austin Ekeler (Melvin Gordon, please stay away), Devin Singletary and Matt Brieda -- all have huge upside.
All in all, I like this team. It has nice depth, some solid studs at the running back, wide receiver and quarterback positions -- and the fantasy football wild card in Lamar Jackson.
