20 Team Fantasy Football Draft Recap - Rounds 1-3

Round 1

The draft started as most drafts will this summer, with Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham and Julio Jones in the top 3.  Six of the next 8 picks were RB with DeAndre Hopkins and Rob Gronkowski mixed in.  To my surprise, Adrian Peterson went after the Cowboy rookie Ezekiel Elliot.  Cam Newton was the lone QB drafted in Round 1 at pick 14.  Even without Tony Romo for 6-10 weeks, Dez Bryant was selcted 15th overall.  Le'Veon Bell at 17 was surprise, but his suspension was reduced to 3 games so this pick should be just fine.

Round 2

Mike Evans and Devonta Freeman was the first duo created with picks 20 and 21.  Six other owners went landed a WR and a RB after the first two rounds.  Team 4 was the the only owner to draft two RBs (David Johnson/Doug Martin).  Three of the four owners that drafted a QB paired them with a WR while Aaron Rodgers Owner (Team 6) drafted Todd Gurley in the first round.  Both owners that selected TEs used their other pick on a RB (Gronkowski/LeSean McCoy & Elliot/Jordan Reed).  Just four of the 20 teams drafted WRs with their first two picks.

Round 3

Four more teams drafted a QB in the third round, making that 8 drafted overall.  Four of those owners now had a roster with a QB/RB/WR.  There was not a single team with three WRs and just four rosters had two RBs.  Three teams have yet to even draft a RB.  Three TEs were drafted in the 3rd round, taking five off the big board inside the top 60.  Nobody wants to be stuck with TE 20!
