What's up, everybody? It's Tyler Prickett here of Unwrap Sports Network.
Um, slow, brief summary about myself.
I'm from the Naperville, Illinois, area.
Um, I've been with unwrap sports sense about when it's it did start back then, but I was recruited in about January, right around in January, about February, right around Super Bowl time, and I'm glad to be there with them.
But we just had our first annual unwrap Sports network fantasy football draft.
I'm gonna recap that for you guys.
Um, but without further due, let's get right into it.
We got the draft board here on my TV, so Ah, you can see that.
So we're gonna break it down.
Just ah, picked by pick.
So it's so to speak for a little and break down what I liked about each and everybody's draft and what I thought they could have done differently.
Ah, this that and the other.
But you have any questions or comments? Concerns you can reach out during this.
Probably gonna go for about 30 minutes or so. So he would go.
Um, obviously, nobody really had any, like idea whether or not to take, say, Quan Barkley with the first overall pick.
So that was obviously gonna be Perry's first picking.
One state, Tom Barkley.
No surprise there, like I said, But you know, the guy is amazing.
He is, like, the greatest thing I've ever seen on a football field.
But I'm 22 so I never got to see of Walter Pay.
And I'm a Bears fan.
Uh, never got to see Walter play or bury play or anything like that, but Barkley advanced Freak doesn't matter who's on the offense.
You know, last year O b j didn't play.
Ah, and, uh, you know, Barclay was still able to put up numbers, so that was really nice to see.
I don't think there's any discussion I've seen people take Christian McCaffrey over Hammer album tomorrow, but personally Barclay all day for me.
Then Christian McCaffrey and then so on, so forth.
But yeah, Terry went with sake. Tom Barkley.
That pick the next pick was a bit of surprise for me just because not necessarily because of the talent, but will holds.
He's the Dallas man.
He went to Zeke Elliott, so I don't know if he has any insider information or what's going on there.
But yeah, he went.
Zeke Elliott there.
I don't really I don't see why you would take a risk there, because at the time we didn't know that he was going to be signing with them the next few hours.
And now there's reports out that he's already had a deal and he's going to Dallas.
Basically, Thio finalize it so But it seems like a good pick there.
But he never did.
Can cut the 20 Pollard.
So but us on the next one of Christian McCaffrey.
Ah, last thing to say, this is half point PPR.
Um, I don't, you know, custom Caffrey over Alvin Kamara.
I tend to trust the Saints offense more than I trust Carolina, but Christian McCaffrey, without Cam Newton last year, actually had a higher usage rate.
So you can't really go wrong there with fish. McCaffrey.
Then next went Alvin Kamara to M.
D's fans football shows.
He is another good guy.
Ah, he does his own podcast, and he's very good at what he does.
And, ah, trust his opinion.
So But some of his fix and I'm gonna get into it kind of surprised me, but I'll get into that right.
Next pick was a bit of a surprise, Nick.
Trouble went fifth overall.
I mean, you could have concerns about taking a receiver and a 12 man half point.
You want to get your stud backs and what not? Um, but, you know, taking them over James Connor.
Yeah, I would do that.
David Johnson. I don't know, Lady on Bell.
No, I mean, you have this lot of concerns there, but the same time, it's like, you know, I don't know.
You just you just never know.
But then Nick trouble went DeAndre Hopkins and then came to me.
I won't leave you on, Belle.
I believe that I am.
Donald is gonna have an amazing year just because he's gonna be able to dump it off to Lady on Belle.
And one of my sleeper picks of the year was Jamison Crowder working that slot.
And James Crowder had one of his best years with Kirk cousins and Washington working the slat.
There you had nearly 1000 yards.
Um, I believe eight touchdowns or so he used Really good.
I think Sam Dong was really gonna utilize that.
I don't necessarily like they're receiving corps, but just having that safe threat to dump it off the lady on Belle.
It's definitely be something nice tohave then Philly pod took Davante Adams.
Um, I I like him just as much as I like DeAndre Hopkins within 12 man half point PPR.
I'd rather take a back there, but you can't argue that one way or the other.
I mean, you gotta start regardless.
What you think, Uh, next pick was Julio Jones, but this is everyday fancy football.
And he was on auto draft for the 1st 5 rounds.
I was reaching out, come back and make its picks and whatnot.
But so he took Julio Jones.
And then next pick was Tyree kill James Connor.
So that rounded out the first round.
I wasn't really much surprises.
Maybe Nick shop, but he would have been a first round pick anyway.
So I mean, it's just more so preference at that point on.
And then the next one going into the round to Michael Thomas and, uh, Todd Gurley coming back.
So my Thomas Todd Gurley Odell Beckham Jr.
Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon and then me juju Smith Schuster? Yes, the juju Smith shoes there.
I think it's gonna be a great year and actually everyday fancy football, you know, he loves you do this year.
He thinks he's gonna be the number one fantasy receiver.
And, I mean, he proved it because he gave me Julio Jones for him.
So I'm just gonna have to change this out for you guys, you know, because I gotta get my Julio to support my boy Julio Jones.
I ended up getting Matt Ryan, so I was really happy with that.
I was able to make that trade to get Julio Jones in my team, so I mean, say what you want, but Julio says he's going for 3000 this year, and Matt Ryan and Julio Jones and that whole offense are playing in the Dome 10 out of the 16 games this year.
I mean, that's pretty insane.
I mean, you gotta have a lot of good games being playing a dome now deal with weather and what not instead of the other on.
And then I was surprised because right around his 80 p, but I wouldn't necessarily take ah, tight end this early.
I mean, Travis, Kelsey, say what you want.
He puts up wide receiver one numbers.
So I mean, and he's in the most explosive offense in the league s Oh, David Lindsay, my co host on the, um, uh, N b a coast to coast podcast as well as the, um jeez, I can't even think of my own scuff, uh, between gang pot NFL.
You can follow those on Twitter at changing NFL and at N B a coast to coast.
We do coverage of, you know, football and basketball.
So whatever you think you wanna, you know, tuned into you can see that.
But he goes, Travis Kelsey there, like I said, puts up fancy receiver one number.
So I can't really dispute that.
Then Leonard Foreign at Mike Avon's Antonio Brown.
So the guys who I said that kind of concerned me taking Zeke Elliott to also took Pat Mahomes.
I mean, yeah, he's a stud.
But taking a quarterback that early, there's a lot of depth there at the position.
I mean, all right, so just put this in perspective.
I took Matt Ryan in the eighth round.
He took Pat Mahomes in the second round, so I mean, yeah, you could say that Pat Mahomes is gonna finish, you know, number one.
And I believe you will.
I have another leads to, but because their teeth leagues and I got good value on it based on a BP, um, love last year.
But, I mean, Matt Ryan, he could potentially finish number two or 41 doesn't mess.
He's gonna finish in the top five range.
You just can't really, you know, dispute that either, But no taking Pat Mahomes in your second round pick and the 12 man half point PPR I don't know, because I mean the difference between Pat Mahomes, Matt Ryan, maybe 30 points, like, is it really, You know, worth it to do that when you could have had, you know, a wide receiver, one Chris Carson.
You know, you know Running back Chris Carson, Keenan Allen.
I mean, carry out. He took caring out Johnson.
So, you know, say what you want.
I mean, do what you want to do.
I mean, do you like the guys you like, But Zeke Elliott.
That's that. That's a kind of a sketchy start.
I mean, I would have backed up Zeke Elliott with another back there, which he does.
He goes, carry out Johnson.
And then it gets Duke Johnson as his RV.
His receivers turned out.
T Y Hilton. Dede Westbrook.
I love you well, but it's not the strategy I was, um, but then, you know Perry in the second round Chris Carson and then followed up with Keenan Allen.
He said he's higher on Keenan Allen that he is out of dealing, and I'm not disputing that.
I just think Keenan Allen has an injury history, and I don't trusted as much, I guess.
Um, But, I mean, you can't go wrong there and that he's high on Philip Lindsay.
This year is Well, so you know, I felt Lindsay in a standard league, and I've been trying to trade him.
Nobody will take him.
I don't I don't see why nobody wants to take him, but, I mean, I must be right about something.
But, you know, I ended up trading for Damian Williams.
Um, but that was before the news about the shot.
McCoy So shoot myself in the foot there, but we're gonna d'oh moving out from there.
you got carry on jobs.
An area journalist, Avanti Freeman, Mark Ingram, Josh Jacobs.
And I took my boy, David Montgomery.
I think he's gonna have a huge year in that Matt Navy offense.
You know, Jordan Howard had a bunch of touches last year.
They had 250 last year, the Bears and they had to move on from, um, But, you know, David Montgomery's explosive.
You can't get to get dumped two intact as you can get it done in the passing game.
Um, you know, drugging by the board.
It didn't seem like I was gonna be able to get in our be, too, if I didn't take one.
They're typically I probably would have went out of dealing, but I thought David Montgomery was too good to pass up there, so you know, it is what it is.
But I want David Montgomery.
I think we have a huge year having that pairing between Levian Bell and David Montgomery with Julio Jones, my number one receiver.
You know, I really like that start.
Then moving on Adam Feelings.
Sony, Michelle, Damian Williams, Amari Cooper, Stefan Diggs so basically allowed shock. There.
You know the guy's going at their relative adp Uh, we thought maybe Damian Williams would have felt like the fifth round, and I have been okay taking him there.
But in the third round, that was a little bit too rich for me.
I'm gonna do that, Owen.
So Tyree kill Odell Beckham Jr and Damian Williams.
So he has to cheese.
And he's very chief Reliance and receiver Reliant.
Really? Because he's got Odell Tyree kill Brandon Cooks and Calvin Ridley four receivers within the 1st 5 rounds.
I don't love it because you're running backs for Damian Williams and various guys.
And so that's your RV one every two R B three day from Pearson, who is maybe a handcuffed in areas guys, I don't know.
You want all that? Um, but you know, we'll see.
I'm not gonna say it's not gonna work out.
It may. It may not know.
You know, I took Zach Ertz in the fourth round.
I thought, you know, judging by Travis Kelsey and George Kittle going off the board, I thought it was best available.
I'll exactly It's more than I like Derrick Henry. Julian Edelman.
You know Melvin Gordon, Robert Woods.
Take came there.
I mean, you know, there's different strategies you could punch, you know, tight end completely and end up with a sleeper tied down, like Mark Andrews, Vance McDonald.
You know, the hours probably gonna be an elite tied down this year.
So, you know, there's a lot of different things you can do, but I was comfortable taking Zacher sex.
I thought it was best available.
I was also lucky enough to have come back to me d shame or and Jarvis Landry next round.
So I didn't really shoot myself.
The folks I would've took receiver there, but I didn't go tide.
And so I like that better, you know? But there's a lot of everything you do.
Um, And then I would say it surprised me with china.
Watson going in the fourth round to the Philly pot.
I thought he was for sure, going Carson wants because he's a Philly, you know, podcast.
But he didn't take Carson Wentz, I believe.
He didn't take our sweats, which is surprised me.
I thought you had been super high, and I'm super high in that offense.
I wasn't thought maybe with exactly.
It's what he did it.
He took Shannon lives, so may have enough, but, uh, overall, my team, I thought it shaked out pretty well.
I mean, it's my first ever.
PPR never been a 12 man lied before.
Um, but I mean so I did all my research and what not in the other.
And and I turned out pretty good.
Annabelle David Montgomery, Julio Jones Deejay more Jarvis Landry, Zach Ertz and my sleeper pick, Devon's Singletary.
And if you run my sleeper article that I put out for unwrap sports, you could find that on the sports Network.
Or you found out on my page at Tyler Dylan on Twitter.
That's at T y l e double R D Y l A double end on Twitter.
Like I said, Ah, but Devon Singletary was a guy that I had as my sleeper one of my super pics of the year.
This would before little Shawn McCoy in years, So I nailed that on the head.
So I'm very happy about that one.
Um, but, you know, that was Singletary was going basically undrafted too now.
I had to take him in the seventh round, so I wish the unwrapped sports league no draft would happen before the fact.
But it didn't, um, so you know, it is what it is.
I got Devon Singletary as my RV three.
So it's not the best, but he could be pretty good.
Just never really trust that, uh, you know, bills offense.
But I mean, a lot of things that I liked about this draft.
It went really well.
And I got some good good reviews from colleagues and what not? Um, but I mean Perry, period.
Like I said, Perry, you said that, You know, my team and your team are one of the best two years, and I agree.
I mean, I agree.
I like what you did, uh, pairing your two running backs right away and then getting a number one receiver and Keenan Allen.
Want Barkley, Chris Carson, Keenan Allen.
And then which some people could say Philip Lindsay is R V two.
I mean, you got a message or R b three and then three phoners are before, so I really like we did there and receiver shakedowns Keenan Allen, Kenna Galati, Michael Gallop, Larry Fitzgerald, Anthony Miller who was a very You know, he didn't make my sleep relations because, as a Bears fan there so many.
I mean, you could say that the Bears office isn't that good, but there's so much depth and boom potential out of that Bears offense and matinees offense.
Um, that, you know, anybody could blow up.
I mean, Taylor, Gabriel blow up Cordero.
Patterson could blow up as a running back or receiver.
You never know what's gonna happen there, but definitely that upside.
And I love the Michael Gallop pick up there.
Um, I was hoping to get him on the way back in that seventh round, but he didn't follow me.
I really like, you know, I liked him last year.
I was touting him as one of the breakout players last year to just never came to fruition.
But, I mean, there's a couple times Dak Prescott missed them on some deep balls and, ah, you know, it is what it is.
But I hope he's looking like he's having a great camp there.
He had a great camp and moving into the season.
I think he's gonna do great things being opposite of Amari Cooper.
Um, and actually, Cole Beasley decks number one target is gone toe buffalo.
So, I mean, it opens up a lot of windows, and getting Zeke back will be huge Thio takeoffs and pressure for him because he's not gonna see double coverage because gotta Mark Cooper.
So I think that Michael Gallup has a really big year, so I really like that pick.
But, you know, overall, I thought this draft it really well, you know, I really interested to see how it shakes out.
Um, there was there was, you know, not much surprise.
Like in terms of, like, really, really big reaches.
Um, but you know, Victor, you know, I love you and everything, but dude taking Karim Hunt in the eighth round.
This is a man a keeper league, and you don't have Nick Chubb, so I didn't understand that.
I mean, you got Joe Mixon, Tevin Coleman, Karim Hunt, Jordan Howard.
So maybe you have some inside information with the George Howard situation there, but I am completely fading Jordan, Howard, and all weeks just because I think Miles Sanders is the guy there, and that's that's what's gonna happen.
But, um, yeah, Like I said, overall, this was a really good draft.
I really liked how it turned out.
Um, blessed to be a part of this.
Blessed to be a part of unwrap sports that were given all the follow work, you can follow them, you know, on their pages.
They put out their articles, they're deprived, cast us that and the other.
So Perry and the team does a really good job of running that So you can find everybody there anything you're really looking for.
So I hope you guys enjoy this.
Um, I will be back, probably Thursday night.
As it is the Bears Packers season opener and the NFL season opener.
Someone is trying to do a broadcast there.
I'm super hyped about that.
And yeah, I look forward to talking to you all peace out
