Ramblings: Don’t You Forget About C… and Maybe LW Too?

In case you missed it, I made my first-ever appearance on the Keeping Karlsson podcast on Sunday. Elan wanted to discuss the Fantasy Guide and a few particular projections, and I was more than happy to oblige. You can listen to an audio-only version of the podcast here, or you can watch it on video below.

When Elan asked me about sleepers, I brought up my Ramblings from the weekend before where I discussed players that I thought were being drafted too low in Yahoo leagues. Within that group were a few centers that I thought you should target in single-season drafts: Mark Scheifele, Brayden Point, and Roope Hintz in particular. These centers may be falling in drafts because they're not getting the respect that they deserve, but that's only part of it. They are also falling simply because center is believed to be the deepest forward position in fantasy leagues. Or is it?

When I completed a mock draft the other night, I had a hard time passing up the centers that were available.

My last three picks were Troy Terry, Elvis Merzlikins, and Matty Beniers, in case the tweet was cut off.
