Draft Strategy

2nd-Round Decisions

By Kevin English 9:08am EDT 8/7/18

Yesterday, Jared broke down some factors you should consider when making your 1st-round pick. Before tackling a loaded Round 2, let's take a quick look at the names we'll choose from...

Some takeaways…

  • Beckham’s lost 2017 certainly hasn’t hurt his stock. He’s angling for a new contract and might get it ahead of Week 1.
  • Cook played only 4 games in 2017, but fantasy owners clearly expect a 2018 breakout. His ACL rehab has gone smoothly from all accounts. And he might even take some preseason snaps.
