Experts draft: At last, IDPs
Posted Jul. 17 at 03:16 AM
In the 8th round of the Fantasy Football Indepth experts draft, which I've been participating in since Monday, the first of the IDPs went off the board. The names aren't surprising: Patrick Willis, who we've also ranked No. 1 overall, and Jared Allen, who is our No. 1 defensive lineman.
I'll consider selecting an IDP myself when my next pick comes up. I also need a tight end. Last round I opted for a third running back (LenDale White, who we've ranked in our top 30 RBs even in a PPR format (knowing he probably won't catch a pass all season), and then followed that up with a fourth wide receiver (Ted Ginn, who we've also ranked No. 28 at his position. This league starts 3 wideouts and there's a flex position. so I wanted to get another top-30 option before turning my attention elsewhere.
Clearly, there's little need to draft a quarterback early. I took Tom Brady at 3.09, which seemed like a decent pick. Had I known Philip Rivers wouldn't go until midway through the 7th, however, there's no way I'd have drafted Brady four rounds earlier.
