Carcosa Yellow Kings

1. Saquon Barkley (NYG - RB)
2. Mike Evans (TB - WR)
3. Cam Newton (Car - QB)
4. Marvin Jones Jr. (Det - WR)
5. Trey Burton (Chi - TE)
6. Chris Thompson (Was - RB)
7. Rashaad Penny (Sea - RB)
8. Duke Johnson Jr. (Cle - RB)
9. Jamison Crowder (Was - WR)
10. Rishard Matthews (Ten - WR)
11. Kenny Stills  (Mia - WR)
12. Austin Ekeler (LAC - RB)
13. Jerick McKinnon (SF - RB)
14. Jacksonville  (Jax - DEF)
15. Will Lutz (NO - K)
16. Lamar Jackson (Bal - QB)

Best keeper: Jax defense in the 14th. I expect some regression, but that's not a bad spot for the #1 defense.

Best non-keeper pick: I love me some Austin Ekeler, and the 12th round is fine value for him. I think the Chargers find a way to get him on the field more.

Best keeper pick: I don't think McKinnon's starting gig is going to be taken by Alfred Morris next year (although Breida might), so it's not a bad keeper pick in the 13th. I also like Lamar Jackson's upside, but it might be two year down the road before you really start him.

Worst pick: Cam. Unless the Panthers reach the "Fuck it, let him run", I think he was a reach. Russell Wilson and Tom Brady should outperform him again this year.

Overall: This team does scare me. There's a solid mix between high upside guys (Saquon and Evans) and solid producers (Chris Thompson and Marvin Jones) so every week should be a battle against this team. If they stay healthy and Saquon is what they say he is, watch out.
