This is the third article on this draft and will cover rounds five and six. You can find the links for the first two articles below. So far there haven't been a lot of surprises in the draft, as most would expect with such a talented crew drafting, but we are getting into the rounds where some picks will stick out. Let's jump into the next two rounds and see if anything sticks out? No, not like that, get your minds out of the gutter…

This league has some of the best Fantasy Football minds in the world and me.

This league is set up a little differently. The starting lineup is as follows: 2QBs – 3RBs – 4WRs - 2TEs and 2 flex (RB/WR/TE) for a total of 13 starters. The scoring also gives a slight boost to QBs and TEs.

It is a 24-round draft so you will get to see your preferred expert digging deep to get their favorite sleepers, but with this frenzy of sharks, true sleepers will be hard to find.

The following reviews Rounds 3 and 4 of this talent-laden draft.

Rounds 1-2  * Rounds 3-4 * Rounds 5-6

Draft order: 1 – Jim Day, 2 – Dr Roto, 3 – John Paulsen, 4 – Matthew Berry, 5 – Matt Harmon, 6 – Liz Loza, 7 – Sigmund Bloom, 8 – Jeff Ratcliffe, 9 – Mike Clay, 10 – Bob Harris, 11 – Evan Silva, 12 – Adam Ronis.


Round 5

5.01 – Jim Day – Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Bucs

5.02 = Dr. Roto – Kyler Murray, QB Arizona Cardinals

5.03 – John Paulsen – Jared Goff, QB Los Angeles Rams

5.04 – Matthew Berry – Ben Roethlisberger, QB Pittsburgh Steelers

5.05 – Matt Harmon – Lamar Jackson, QB Baltimore Ravens

5.06 – Liz Loza – Kerryon Johnson, RB Detroit Lions

5.07 – Sigmund Bloom – Aaron Jones, RB Green Bay Packers

5.08 – Jeff Ratcliffe – Brandin Cooks, Los Angeles Rams

5.09 – Mike Clay – Dak Prescott, QB Dallas Cowboys

5.10 – Bob Harris – Mark Ingram, RB Baltimore Ravens

5.11 – Evan Silva – OJ Howard, TE Tampa Bay Bucs

5.12 – Adam Ronis – Kenyon Drake, RB Miami Dolphins



Round 6

6.01 – Adam Ronis – Mitchell Trubisky, QB Chicago Bears

6.02 – Evan Silva – Sony Michel, RB New England Patriots

6.03 – Bob Harris – Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers

6.04 – Mike Clay  - Julian Edelman, WR New England Patriots

6.05 – Jeff Ratcliffe – Kirk Cousins, QB Minnesota Vikings

6.06 – Sigmund Bloom – Tom Brady, QB New England Patriots

6.07 – Liz Loza – Chris Godwin, WR Tampa Bay Bucs

6.08 – Matt Harmon – Jimmy Garoppolo, QB San Francisco 49ers

6.09 – Matthew Berry – Josh Allen, QB Buffalo Bills

6.10 – John Paulsen – Phillip Lindsay, RB Denver Broncos

6.11 – Dr. Roto – Derek Carr, QB Oakland Raiders

6.12 – Jim Day – Robert Woods, WR Los Angeles Rams

Okay the one pick that stands out the most to me is Dr. Roto's pick of Kyler Murray at 5.02 before established QBs like Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Mitch Trubisky and Dak Prescott. He then followed it up by going with Derek Carr at 6.11. He did also draft Baker Mayfield so this trio could be a very explosive combination if Murray lives up to the hype

and Derek Carr can put a solid season together with his new receivers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams. Doc is definitely a believer in the young Murray and the Air Raid offense Arizona will use.

Thirteen QBs came off the board in these two rounds as everyone tries to make sure they have two quality starters. Getting that third starting QB is where all the action is going to get interesting.

Three picks that I really like in these rounds are Ronis' pick of Kenyon Drake at 5.12, Liz Loza's pick of Chris Godwin at 6.07 and Mike Clay got a steal with Julian Edelman at 6.04.

Not sure why Edelman continues to fall, makes no sense to me. Godwin is getting all the love, but Liz got him at a good spot. I also think Kenyon Drake is being discounted because of the illusion of how terrible he did in 2018. Drake finished just outside the top 12 in PPR leagues last year and is being drastically undervalued.
