Fantasy football season is right around the corner, and if you are anything like myself then you should already be thinking about who to draft with your first pick. There are so many great names to choose from, but how do I make the right pick this year? I feel bad for anyone who picked le’Veon bell last year with their first pick. I mean how could anyone predict that he would sit out all year long. The first pick is the cornerstone of every persons draft and if you make the wrong choice then you are going to have a very rough year! With that in mind I am going to help you not make that mistake and go over who I like in the top ten and who is the safest pick. Check out my video podcast where I will help you make great picks all year long. https://bit.ly/2K8ETIX
Here is a list of the ESPN projected top ten players in this years draft.
- Saquon Barkley
- Ezekiel Elliot
- Christian McCaffrey
- Alvin Kamara
- David Johnson
- Melvin Gordon
- James Connor
- Deandre Hopkins
- Davante Adams
- Julio Jones
First of all I am going to rule out any player that has bad vibes going into 2019 or has a bad situation. Since the start of training camp which was this week, Ezekiel Elliot has not shown up. Which is never a good sign for fantasy because that could lead to him not playing until he gets paid. Does this remind you of someone I was talking about earlier? I love Elliot but if there is any risk of him not playing then I will gladly pick someone else with ease.
Next on this list of do not draft as of yet is Melvin Gordon. He is currently holding out for a better contract and rumors have surfaced of it lasting well into the season. This is another holdout situation that I do not want to be apart of. I will gladly draft anyone in the top ten without having to worry about if my player is going to suit up.
Now I am excited to say that the other 8 players in the top ten have no issues at all and you should feel confident with drafting them! So who should you pick with your first pick. I think that is an easy question this year. Saquon Barkley should be atop every persons list. The team lost all of its receivers and is going to get even more catches and carries. He is going to be an absolute beast this year and I hope I can get him on my team this year.
Another player I am excited to draft this year is David Johnson! Brand new head coach and new QB. With rumors of having the fasted offense ever created in the NFL. I am not sure about you but that sounds like a lot of production from David Johnson this year!
Guys like Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara and James connor are all great picks because they are going to be heavily involved in the passing game! As far as receivers go, you should feel very confident drafting one of the top receivers with your first pick!
Hope this gave you some insight to who you might want to add with your first pick this year! Stay up to date with my blog and Be sure to listen to audio podcast. https://bit.ly/2ZbV2nfFollow Me!
