I started this team as I usually do if I can, with two running backs I believe will finish in the top ten. Jonathon Taylor proved last year he can be the workhorse in that offense. Running behind a stout offensive line and with a defense that can have them in ball control late, I’m all over Taylor as a top five back in 2021. Cam Akers exploded at the end of last year and showed if he is given the touches he will take advantage of them. Matt Stafford going to the Rams is what really gets me excited for Akers. With his big arm safeties will not be able to cheat towards the line of scrimmage. That will allow Akers positive box situations to run into. I’m very high on these two backs.

I shored up my tight end spot next with George Kittle. Not much to say here. When he is healthy only Travis Kelce is as good or better. I then took a run of wide receivers to make sure I had starters I was comfortable with every week. Adam Thielen is going to continue to score touchdowns at a double digit rate even with the emergence of Justin Jefferson. Robert Woods is always consistent and can only improve on his numbers with the arrival of Stafford. Jarvis Landry is a reliable third option with moderate upside. Deebo Samuel is all upside as long as he can keep himself on the field.

My next three picks were running backs. I took the Buffalo pairing of Singletary and Moss with some hope they don’t address the position this off season and one will emerge as a startable asset to play on bye weeks for my starting two. I took Henderson as a cuff to Akers for insurance reasons. Jumping a few picks ahead I took Algholor at pick 14. This was actually before he signed with the Patriots but I took him hoping he would land somewhere with a chance to be the lead wide out. So… maybe I was right?

In Rounds 11 and 12 I went back to back quarterback. Ryan Tannehill is a reliable QB who should finish most weeks as a QB1. Although his ceiling is fairly low due to the low passing volume he will likely produce. That’s why you draft a guy like Jalen Hurts. This guy is an athlete. If he can put together an offseason where he improves as a passer and seamlessly integrates his running ability, you watch out. This kid could win leagues next year.

Overall I’m happy with the team. Not having a true number one receiver is a little worrisome but when you take a tight end like Kittle high you lose a little at one position. I think with the core of wide outs I established it was a worthy sacrifice. I Could have taken one more reliable back earlier and I would feel a lot better about this but… See comment before about Kittle. Sacrifices must be made for greatness. Which I believe this team has the potential (at least in early March) to attain.
