It's pretty clear who is going at the top of round one in your drafts this season: Leveon Bell, David Johnson, Ezekiel Elliott, and Antonio brown in pretty much any order you can name. If any of those guys fall to you past the 4th pick, snag them ASAP.
The real question is who take if you have a mid or late 1st round pick. I'm all about the RB'S this season given how few workhorses there are left the league, so in many of my mocks so far, I have snagged 2 RB1's in the first couple rounds between guys like Lesean McCoy, Jordan Howard, Melvin gordon, or Devonta Freeman. If you have the 5th pick, and the top 4 guys are gone, it's between Lesean McCoy, Jordan Howard, AJ green, and Mike Evans for me. You also have to keep in mind who you are drafting with. If you know some of your friends are high on McCoy or Howard, you might want to secure them in the 1st since they likely won't be available for you in the 2nd. However, if your doing a random live draft on ESPN, Howard is ranked as a back end 2nd round pick, so you might be able to take a WR like green or Evans in the 1st, followed by a RB like Howard, gordon, or Freeman in the 2nd. You really have to take into consideration who your drafting with and what the rankings are in front of you. Just because Howard may be my 5th ranked RB, doesn't mean you reach for him in the 1st if you can easily snag him in the 2nd.
It's very important to secure your RB's if the time is right. I'm expecting the combination of McCoy and Howard, Mccoy and Gordon, or Howard and Gordon to lead many owners to fantasy glory this coming season. You don't want to wait too long to secure your WR1 though, ESPECIALLY in PPR so if you don't secure your RB2 early, then look for crowell in the 3rd or 4th as your RB2, who I'm expecting to put up RB1 numbers this season. Overall, know who your drafting with and what the rankings are in front of you, don't reach for a certain player if you think you can snag him in the next round.
