    Hi Les,

    I drew the 3rd pick in our 10 team draft. I’m really conflicted between D. Johnson & Zeke Elliot? Wouldn’t even mind drafting Kamara there because he plays on a good team. Cowboys offense is starting to scare me as they can just stack the box on him & there OL is missing there center. We get 1pt for every yard rushing or receiving & bonus pts for Td’s over 25yds, 50, & 75. Watching preseason D. Johnson looks like he’s back to his 2016 form. Great receiver too. Who would you take & why? Am I overthinking this?

    I think you are in a good spot with any of those backs. I prefer Zeke because I feel he is most likely to score double digit TDs of the other options you mentioned. Maybe I’m a little gun shy on Johnson as I was burned by him last year.
