2016 Fantasy Football: MFL10 Draft - My Guys

I'm currently in my eighth MFL10, which if you haven't heard of, you can check out here. I love these best-ball leagues because you can forget about them if you want, but you get to have fun drafting in the doldrums of summer.

I just took a look at my totals for players I've drafted so far in MFL10s and thought I'd see if I'm on board with hoarding certain players or if I'm grabbing some of the same guys for other reasons.

Below I'll go through my most drafted players and tell you why I've drafted them so often:

Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears (5)
Jeffery has the ability to be a Top-5 receiver, but injuries have kept him from getting a full 16 games in. He's currently being picked as the 11th wide receiver and the 18th overall in MFL10s, and I think that's a bit too late. I've been grabbing him as my first or second receiver in the second round of many drafts - well, five - so far.

Marvin Jones, WR, Lions (5)
I've written a fantasy football profile for Jones already but I'll continue to beat the drum, as he's still going too late in drafts for my taste. He's the 38th receiver off the board and 72nd overall. My only problem is grabbing him earlier than I need to, but sometimes that's just what you do when going after someone you like.

Donte Moncrief, WR, Colts (5)
With Andrew Luck back and nobody other than T.Y. Hilton to take targets from him, I love Moncrief this year. Last season, Luck threw 11 touchdowns in his first five games, and five of those went to Moncrief. After that, the Colts faced the Broncos and Panthers, while Luck ran out of, um, good vibes and had his spleen shattered. A healthy Luck should get Moncrief 120-plus targets and double-digit touchdowns is a real possibility. He is currently going off the board as the 24th receiver and 43rd-overall pick. That's not great value for him, but for what I think he does this year, there's still plenty of value there, and I'll continue grabbing him in the fourth round.

Jay Ajayi, RB, Dolphins (5)
I like Ajayi, but he's more a product of picking wide receivers early and feeling like I'm getting a deal on him later in the draft. The main concern with Ajayi coming into the season was if the Dolphins would draft a running back early or sign a free agent to compete for the No. 1 job. Neither of those things has happened yet, so I'm still on board. Yes, Kenyan Drake could take away some receptions, but I'm not sold on him, and I like Adam Gase and think he helps this offense overall, and Ajayi is the main back and can be had in the sixth round.

Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks (4)
Baldwin showed his upside in the second half of last season, but I agree that we can't draft him high based solely on that small sample size. The reason I like him so much this year is Russell Wilson, who has gotten better statistically every year. There's also no Marshawn Lynch to feed and Wilson has proven that he's just too good to be bottled up by handing the ball off most of the time. If the Seahawks want to get back to the Super Bowl, it's going to be on the arm of Wilson, and Baldwin is going to be his go-to target.

C.J. Anderson, RB, Broncos (3)
Anderson is currently going off as the 16th running back and 41st-overall pick. That's not super late, but it's still a value for a three-down running back in a Gary Kubiak offense. Yes, Anderson was injured last season and lost work to the not very good Ronnie Hillman, but Anderson did show up when healthy toward the end and put up good numbers, including in the playoffs. What I like so much about Anderson, is that even when Hillman was taking away work, Anderson was still the preferred option in the passing game. I feel confident in his ability between the tackles when healthy, but the fact that the coaches still wanted him blocking and receiving over Hillman last season, gives me confidence that he'll be used as the every-down back this season.

Todd Gurley, RB, Rams (3)
Well, this is probably due to me getting quite a few draft spots in the latter half of the first round. Whenever Gurley falls past the seventh or eighth pick, I feel compelled to grab him. He's one of the few running backs I feel safe picking in the first round, and once my top wide receivers are off the board, he's next in my queue. Gurley's currently going off the board as the second running back and seventh-overall pick. That makes me fairly lucky that he's fallen into the back end of the first round for me those three times.

Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers (3)
Gordon was rotten last season, but I believe it was a perfect storm of offensive line injuries, receiver injuries and a rookie-learning curve. Running backs get better at pass protection, the offensive line and receivers can't be as hurt as they were last year, and Ken Whisenhunt, who helped the running game a lot the last time he was in San Diego, should be able to do the same with Gordon. Plus, there were a few runs last season that I was really impressed by. I believe he will improve greatly this year, and his ADP is in the seventh round, which is great if you are picking wide receivers early like I often do.

Eli Manning, QB, Giants (3)
I've been tooting the Eli Manning horn all offseason, including in my profile of Manning. He's my favorite "late round" quarterback and fits with my drafting style perfectly. Manning's not exactly a sleeper, as he's being picked as the 10th quarterback, but he can be had in the ninth or 10th rounds, which means at that point I have my starters and a few good backups on my team and I feel ready to grab my starting quarterback.
