Fantasy Draft Recaps

10-Team Expert Draft Recap

By Matt Schauf 10:07am EDT 7/30/18

A lot of the drafting we do around here is for 12-team leagues. So we wanted to take this opportunity to pass along a 10-team “expert” draft. pulled this group together to draft last week under PlayDraft lineup and scoring rules. That means a lineup of:


No kickers or defenses. Scoring is 0.5 PPR, 25 passing yards per point and 4-point passing TDs. The rest of the categories are fairly standard, and this league will play out best-ball style.

That likely pushed QBs even further down the board, and the format emphasizes upside over floor.

Here was the draft order:

Dan Clasgens
Devin Knotts
Heath Cummings
Keith Roberts
Danny Tuccitto
Dan Hindery
Will Grant
Ari Ingel

Now let’s get to the part you care about ...

Round 1

1.01 -- Todd Gurley, RB, Rams
1.02 -- Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys
1.03 -- Le’Veon Bell, RB, Steelers
1.04 -- David Johnson, RB, Cardinals
1.05 -- Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers
1.06 -- Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants
1.07 -- Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints
1.08 -- Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs
1.09 -- Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars
1.10 -- Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers

Nothing surprising in the opening round. The half-PPR and best-ball combo will likely just about always push the 2nd WR outside of the top 10 picks. The best-ball format only made it easier for me to start with high-ceiling Kamara at 7.
