Should I draft a RB or QB first?
Every rule has its exceptions, and if youre playing in a league with one of these formats, quarterbacks carry more weighted value and youll need to snag them earlier. In both cases, stud running backs are still going to be the first guys off the board. Position scarcity also makes tight ends valuable.
Through your first five rounds of drafting, you should hope to have your running back slots filled. Running backs are going earlier and more often in the opening rounds than in recent years. Consider yourself lucky to have the position at least halfway figured out with a top-four pick.
Should I pick a running back or wide receiver first?
Its essential to draft at least one running back in the first two rounds because the talent pool starts to fall off at the start of Round 3. Also, the middle rounds are chock-full of wide receiver talent, which should be the primary focus.
What RB should I draft first?
1. Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers (Bye Week: 13) The excitement of drafting fantasy football superstar Christian McCaffrey with the first overall pick didnt last long in 2020. The dual-threat running back played in only three games due to nagging injuries.
Because wide receivers score more on average than running backs, they are much better candidates to fill flex spots, and deploying exceptional WRs there can give fantasy teams a major edge.
