Patrick Mahomes, Michael Thomas, Chiefs discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
Author of that article which is air care about do you're not draft and it's always based on where a player is being selected so not taking patrick mahomes. That's already stain of course patrick mahomes <hes> he's unbelievable player. It's just that where he is being drafted right. Now which is seventeenth overall is that's like a massive massive premium pan of quarterback <hes>. We actually had this conversation on our podcast earlier earlier today because we were previewing the chiefs is that if you think patrick mahomes at quarterback quarterback that's fine if you take him and that's actually encouraged. Encouragement should be doing but if you take him where he's going on average right now which is <hes> pick seventeen. What you are accounting for is not just patrick mahomes being the best quarterback in fantasy. You need him to be like basically what he was last year several inter deviations better than the rest of the quarterbacks in the n._f._l. August here to justify that pick. You can't just be the number one quarterback. He's got to be the number one quarterback mile again. It's said that can't happen it. Just you know using the body of evidence that we have of quarterbacks and possible regression like even if patrick mahomes throws thirty eight touchdown passes next year that could very well be the best in the n._f._l. N._f._l. until twelve less than last year so there's a little bit of risk taking on the seventeenth take overall all right. Let's get down to brass tacks in field. Yates is most important fantasy. Let's see league. When is the earliest that he would take patrick mahomes. You know another great question that reared itself today. Earliest would be <hes> probably the fourth fourth round from the top of the fourth round <hes> and we we use all the usual caveats of like hey. It's <hes> you know. Penalty teams playing with the scoring rules but like a ten team league were touchdowns counter four points in a passing touch for passing touchdown. I think the top of the forefront is about right for me. Feel how how do you feel about the strategy of pairing up teammates on your fantasy team in other words. If i get michael thomas it's smart for me to get drew brees as well yeah. I see what i tell people that is it's. It's less about trying to pair teams. It's more about not being worried about talk. I've had people that have said exactly that like hey. I took michael thomas tonight because of that. When i'm choosing my quarterback later avoid drew brees my general rule donna making it really simple is just hey. If you like both players take them a lot of at the end of the year you go look at the top rank quarterbacks top top water. Steve irs in some cases top-ranked running back a lot of them. Come from the same team so i don't really have an issue with doubling up or crippling up on guys from the same roster. Can you just tell us all all your rules of thumb. Chris loves them. Yeah why not right. Hey you know what else they like. Nothing like this. It's a plug but it's also the answered your question. I should i write this piece. Every year. I the nine rules draft and fantasy football so like but doesn't say thumb kind of an open book my secret yeah so don e._s._p._n. Dot com yeah <hes> if you were to go to an in person draft which i'm gonna assume you do have at least one <hes>..
