This is the fourth article on this draft and will cover rounds seven and eight. You can find the links for the first three articles below. It's tough in a draft filled with such sharks to try and zig when they zag, but that is exactly what you have to do to be successful.

Read on and see if anyone is accomplishing that feat through the first eight rounds.  

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 7 and 8 of this talent-laden draft.

Rounds 1-2  * Rounds 3-4* Rounds 5-6* Rounds 7-8

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 7

7.01 – Jim Day – Matthew Stafford, QB Detroit Lions

7.02 = Dr. Roto – Tyreek Hill, WR Kansas City Chiefs

7.03 – John Paulsen – Sam Darnold, QB New York Jets

7.04 – Matthew Berry – Kenny Golladay, WR Detroit Lions

7.05 – Matt Harmon – Chris Carson, RB Seattle Seahawks

7.06 – Liz Loza – Joe Flacco, QB Denver Broncos

7.07 – Sigmund Bloom – Andy Dalton, QB Cincinnati Bengals

7.08 – Jeff Ratcliffe – Eric Ebron, TE Indianapolis Colts

7.09 – Mike Clay – Jared Cook, TE New Orleans Saints

7.10 – Bob Harris – Sammy Watkins, WR Kansas City Chiefs

7.11 – Evan Silva – Marcus Mariota, QB Tennessee Titans

7.12 – Adam Ronis – Tyler Lockett, WR Seattle Seahawks


Round 8

8.01 – Adam Ronis – DJ Moore, WR Carolina Panthers

8.02 – Evan Silva – Nick Foles, QB Jacksonville Jaguars

8.03 – Bob Harris – Derrius Guice, RB Washington Redskins

8.04 – Mike Clay  - Cooper Kupp, WR Los Angeles Rams

8.05 – Jeff Ratcliffe – James White, RB New England Patriots

8.06 – Sigmund Bloom – Allen Robinson, WR Chicago Bears

8.07 – Liz Loza – David Njoku, TE Cleveland Browns

8.08 – Matt Harmon – Delanie Walker, TE Tennessee Titans

8.09 – Matthew Berry – Vance McDonald, TE Pittsburgh Steelers

8.10 – John Paulsen – Austin Hooper, TE Atlanta Falcons

8.11 – Dr. Roto – Mike Williams, WR Los Angeles Chargers

8.12 – Jim Day – Jack Doyle, TE Indianapolis Colts

A couple of the picks I really like in these two rounds are Matt Harmon's pick of Chris Carson in the seventh and Bob Harris could have gotten a steal in round eight if Derrius Guice can get fully healthy and outplay Adrian Peterson.

Two picks I don't love in these two rounds are both tight ends, Eric Ebron by Jeff Ratcliffe in the seventh and Liz Loza's pick of David Njoku in the eighth. Not that they are bad picks, just think both went a little too high. I still believe Doyle outplays Ebron once fully healthy and Njoku going before Hooper and Doyle is just too much for me to pay.

Which of the picks above do you love? Which do you hate? Make a comment on twitter or facebook and use the hashtag #2QBFF and let everyone know what you think!

Remember that this is a start 2QB league and so far through the first eight rounds there are already 29 QBs taken. Six of the 12 teams already have three quarterbacks and six only have two. Those six with only two will now have to fight for the three remaining starters and any backups or rookies that they think will have a chance to start this year. Should be a fun scramble as we get into the next couple of rounds.

This should also come into play over the next few rounds for tight ends since we also start at least two of them every week. Only 13 have been taken so far, so there are still a few available, but don't be surprised if the next few rounds go heavily into tight ends.

Coming soon Rounds 9 through 12…
