Fanex: running backs still popular
Posted May. 18 at 08:04 AM
Running backs continue to be popular in this Fanex draft I’m doing.
In the first round, all 12 picks were running backs. In the second round, seven picks were running backs. Just two running backs selected in the third round, but now four of the seven picks in the fourth round have been running backs.
I think the guys are overvaluing that position. In this league, you start three wide receivers and only two running backs, plus there’s a float position. And it’s a point-per-catch league, which really should translate into most teams starting four wide receivers versus only two running backs.
