This article is about a 21-minute read.
Editor's Note: This article and the surveys used to write it were completed before the Kansas City Chiefs announced that RB Damien Williams has decided to opt out of the 2020 season.
The premise of a Pick-a-Player question is as follows:
- Three comparable players are available.
- The draft is at a stage where these players are usually drafted.
- You can take one of them or pass on all three for someone else.
Every few days, we ask a question of three groups of people -- the Footballguys staff, the great people following the Footballguys Facebook page, and the active members of our Shark Pool message board. If you'd like to answer a future Pick-a-Player question, there will be another one every few days from now through most of August. Plus, there is a lot of other content there as well. Follow the Facebook page and/or join the Shark Pool, and you can take part in the great discussions happening every day.
It's the 3.01 pick in a standard 12-team, PPR draft. You have already drafted Christian McCaffrey and George Kittle, and the players listed below are off the board. Would you select Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kenny Golladay, or Todd Gurley? Or would you pass on all three?
