My first observation is that 11 running backs get drafted over the first 14 picks. Contests in the Fantasy Football World Championship (FFWC) favor wide receivers by having two flex positions in their starting lineup.

In 2019, six running backs scored over 290.00 fantasy points in PPR leagues compared to five in 2018. Last year Michael Thomas (375.50 fantasy points) was the only impact wide receiver. The second-highest scoring wide receiver was Chris Godwin (276.10), who missed two-plus games.

Based on this info, it makes sense to roster front end running back talent while knowing there is upside/value at the wide receiver position.

Rather than look at each roster, I’m going to focus on the team building from each third of the draft.
