Pick Six: Preseason Edition

“Pick Six” is back along with the fantasy football season! If you are unfamiliar with this article, I will be asking for fantasy questions on Twitter @FantasyFlurry with the hashtag #AskFLURRY. I will be choosing six of the best questions to answer right here each week to help you win your league! Please share this article so we can continue to get as many questions as possible, and we can grow our sports community!

 

1) Christian Potts | @PottsShotsCP

Q: Has your opinion on Ezekiel Elliott changed after seeing him play? #AskFLURRY

A: Yes! Before, I viewed him as more of a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2. I discussed it in more detail here. After watching him play, he is now a solid RB1 for me. He looked great with the ball, ran downhill with purpose, and even had a certain “edge” that I like my football players to have. His behavior off of the field could turn into an issue, and a rookie QB leading the offense could hurt at times, but I ultimately think he has the talent of a RB1 in a great situation.

 

2) The Sports Hound | @TheSportsHound

Q: Are you a supporter of either the #ZeroRB or #ZeroWR strategy? #AskFLURRY

A: I’m not a supporter of going into the draft with a strategy like these. I am of the mindset that I need to see what the draft gives me. I want to see how others are drafting and who the best available is. Now, I think “zero RB” and “zero WR” can work out perfectly fine. I generally end up going RB-heavy, and I feel it has worked out. For example, I started a 10-team PPR draft this weekend with Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, and C.J. Anderson with my first three picks. I still ended up getting DeMaryius Thomas, Josh Gordon, and DeVante Parker as my top-three WRs. So just go with the flow, don’t stress over a specific strategy.

Q: What are your thoughts on Bills QB T. Taylor? #AskFLURRY

A: I’m very happy if I end up with Tyrod as my QB. He is currently going as QB15 or 16, which is about the 12th round in 10-team leagues. This value is obviously incredible, and he also has top-10 potential. I believe he will average about 23 points/week if he is healthy, and that amount would have been QB9 on a points per week basis last season.

 

4) Snack Time Fantasy | @Snack_TimeFS

Q: Do you prefer Christine Michael or Thomas Rawls? #AskFLURRY

A: This is a tough question. I think the starting job, and carries, are Rawls’ to lose. If he comes back and picks up where he left off, then great. The problem is that he isn’t back yet, and Christine Michael looks really good. I think Michael will have a role in the offense no matter what. I am grabbing him at the end of every single draft, and his value could win you your league. I am not drafting Rawls to be my RB1, but if he is my RB2 and I have at least one decent option behind him that I could start and feel okay about, then I love getting him on my team. Seattle is a run-first offense, and the RB with the biggest workload will be an asset to any fantasy team.

 

5) King Ding-a-Ling | @ShockaWalka85

Q: Who’s a better bench option as of now, Kenny Stills or Brandon LaFell? #AskFLURRY

A: Kenny Stills has led the Dolphins in receiving yards twice this preseason, Brandon LaFell has one catch. I know it seems like the opportunity is greater for LaFell, and it is, but I wouldn’t exactly call him a talented WR. Stills is the pick for me if I have to decide between the two.

 

6) JRods Football Vlogs | @JrodsVlogs

Q: Do you think Mark Ingram and Jonathan Stewart are top-10 fantasy RBs when healthy? #AskFLURRY

A: Ingram was 9th in fantasy points/game last season, and I think he could do it again. With Drew Brees at QB and all of those receiving options, there will be plenty of space for Ingram to run. I do not think Stewart will be top-10. First of all, I don’t see him getting fully healthy (foot/ankle). Secondly, he’s not even the goal line back, Cam Newton is. I also feel like Cameron Artis-Payne could have a larger role in the offense this season, and I think he will handle it well. He seems to be the future back in Carolina, not Jonathan Stewart.
