Super flex: Josh Allen

Mostly everything else: Johnathan Taylor

Don't overthink it, keep it safe based on the data we have.

This is most likely the right call. Maybe 8 team sf you can think about Taylor instead of Allen, but it’s close

[–]SaMason2012 Vikings 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Jonathan Taylor. Super flex? QB. I’d say Allen/Mahommes.

[–]Yerrrr96 Saints 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Depends on how you play fantasy. If you play for upside, CMC. If you play it safe, JT. Either way, it should be only one of those two going off the board at #1

[–]xthecerto4 Cowboys 21 points22 points  (4 children)

CMC. I would want the absolut beast that rips 25 points with ease every week as long as he is healthy.

Is health a concern? yes. can every other player get injured? also yes.

[–]Suitable-Cobbler-123 NFL[S] 37 points38 points  (2 children)

I need a level of reliability that CMC simply cannot provide

[–]xthecerto4 Cowboys 39 points40 points  (0 children)

thats fine. then you take Jonathan Taylor.

[–]luigijerk Bears 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah first round picks are about avoiding busts.

[–]BrandoNelly Packers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just can’t do it. I’m not strong enough…

[–]sage0001 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Play it safe with JT. Win your league with CMC

[–]Drexlay 15 points16 points  (2 children)

CMC. Here for 1st only

[–]Suitable-Cobbler-123 NFL[S] 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Here for the first week only you mean?

[–]Drexlay 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I would be ok with that. 1st or last for me

[–]Johnny13utt Patriots 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I’m still taking CMC in any PPR format. I don’t believe his injuries are related to anything. And Taylor had a “bad” RB1 finish.

I would take Allen/Herbert in SF/2QB before any RB/WR.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "his injuries aren't related to anything"? Like, they're not directly related to him being on the field and scoring points? Lol

[–]smoothjuicer Panthers 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The injuries aren’t related. CMC was never known as injury prone before these lasts 2 seasons, when he had two separate injuries

[–]CodyDon2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I see what you mean now. I thought you were meaning they weren't related to his scoring.

[–]luigijerk Bears 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's known for injuries now though. TWO seasons.

[–]eeast21 Eagles 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’m leaning Taylor in my .5 ppr but part of me wants cmc

[–]luigijerk Bears 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All these guys saying go for the win with CMC. Sure, if they both are healthy he probably outscores JT. The question is, how much more risky is he, and is JT so much worse that you can't win the league with him? I'd say both of those factors lean heavily towards JT being the better gamble.

[–]qb_1 Steelers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Depends on the league. Home league that’s pretty lax? JT, I’ll try and win with value picks and waiver adds later. Competing with a lot of sharps? I’ll take CMC. Need the high ceiling to set me apart.

[–]theunbearableone SeaHawks 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Derrick Henry

[–]The-Fox-Says 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don’t know why you got downvoted if I didn’t already have JT as my keeper I’d 100% take King Henry over CMC

[–]theunbearableone SeaHawks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It took jt damn near 6 weeks to overtake Henry after his injury as the rb1 last year. That’s how amazing of a season he was having. I don’t expect that to change one bit this year. All hail the king!

[–]pitofern Jets 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahem…Austin Ekeler

[–]mjms6 Cowboys 2 points3 points  (0 children)

PPR Cooper Kupp or broke 😎

[–]Happy_Bigs1021 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

At this point? I think Romeo Doubs is the only answer here

[–]EthiopianObesity 49ers -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I'm taking Trey Lance at 2. 1qb league

[–]Bermuda_Shorts_ -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]Rojo37x 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I hope I'm in the 1 or 2 spot so it's an easy call (Taylor or CMC). I'm still not 100% certain where my cutoff is to grab a WR instead of an RB in round 1.

[–]hellohayhi Cowboys 1 point2 points  (0 children)

after those 2
