Overall Strategy

Balanced overall, with a slight running back lean and heavy quarterback investment

Best Pick

James Starks, 16.12, RB60. It’s absurd that Holloway was able to scoop James Starks as the RB60. Handcuff backs are always hard to project, but Starks is one of the few with a real stake in the offense and no real competition as his team’s No. 2. And he always carries a strong shot at lead back duties – Eddie Lacy is remarkably banged-up and at a career crossroads – in a powerful offense. This is far, far too late for Starks to be available.

Worst Pick

Carson Palmer, 9.01, QB7. Regardless of where you stand on early quarterback investment, one of its benefits of is that you’re not required to invest much down the line in your No. 2. With Cam Newton on board, Round 9 was a bit early to dip back into the QB market, especially with so many similar options available. I don’t see much difference between Palmer and the next 3-5 guys taken.


I’m not a huge fan of early-round quarterbacks, especially in best-ball formats, but I certainly see Newton’s appeal. He did post five top-three QB weeks last year. Elsewhere, Holloway built a fine RB corps, thanks in large part to the value of the nearly-free Starks. I also like the late upside he found in Breshad Perriman (17.01) and Robert Woods (14.12), who would see more work with Sammy Watkins hobbled than many think.
