Do you hedge your bets? (Poll)

Postby minvike » Tue Sep 05, 2017 3:32 pm

I randomly got the #1 pick in two long time leagues that I am in with my buddies. They are both 12-team, PPRs. I already took David Johnson #1 in one of the leagues. My question is, do I take Johnson again in the second league (which drafts Wednesday night)? Or do hedge my bets and take Lev Bell #1 in the other league. Just wondering what the sharks think.

I think I would have to hedge here, even though I am not opposed to having multiple guys on more than one team typically.

FWIW, I had Bell in 1 league and DJ in another last year and won them both! :D

Injuries are just too random and I wouldn't want to be 100% invested in one over the other. I'm fortunate this year to own both in a few places. I own DJ as a keeper and I got Bell at 1.02 in my home league. And now I'm drafting a small stakes ppr league with my son where we drew 1.01 and picked Leveon. I drafted a small handful of MFL10s, where I also ended up with DJ in one and Bell in another.

Some of this is luck, obviously (you have to get top picks in multiple drafts) but I would certainly hedge between these two players. I think Bell is the best fantasy running back in the league hands down. Even while Johnson posted historic stats in 2016, Lev actually outscored him in ppg.
