Recapping a 10-Team PPR Snake Draft

This is a 10-team Full point PPR snake draft from the 9th pick.  Having to play 3 Wide Receivers instead of a flex option tends to sway my teams in league to be receiver heavy.  The site gave this one a B plus.  

1.(9)Stefon Diggs (Buf – WR)
2.(12)Nick Chubb (Cle – RB)
3.(29)Terry McLaurin (Was – WR)
4.(32)James Robinson (Jax – RB)
5.(49)Julio Jones (Ten – WR)
6.(52)T.J. Hockenson (Det – TE)
7.(69)Chase Edmonds (Ari – RB)
8.(72)Justin Herbert (LAC – QB)
9.(89)JuJu Smith-Schuster (Pit – WR)
10.(92)Dallas Goedert (Phi – TE)
11.(109)Jaylen Waddle (Mia – WR)
12.(112)Matthew Stafford (LAR – QB)
13.(129)Phillip Lindsay (Hou – RB)
14.(132)Tampa Bay (TB – DEF)
15.(149)Henry Ruggs III (LV – WR)
16.(152)Tyler Bass (Buf – K)
17.(169)Giovani Bernard (TB – RB)
18.(172)Deshaun Watson (Hou – QB)

Looking back at the draft I question if taking Diggs ahead of Travis Kelce was the correct move.  Nick Chubb being there in the 2nd round threw off my draft strategy a bit.  My plan was to reach up for Darren Waller at that point.  My other regret was taking Terry McLaurin ahead of Josh Allen. Justin Herbert with added receiver depth isn’t a bad consolation prize.  I like the overall depth and upside of this team.  Julio Jones looks hungry after a lost year in Atlanta and JuJu as a wide receiver 4 is stealing.  James Robinson and Chase Edmonds should be able to give me stable points through the air and ground each week.  I don’t see Robinson repeating last season, but ¾ of those totals is good to me.  Edmonds was selected ahead of Damien Harris.  James Conner doesn’t scare me as too much of a threat to Edmonds workload.  Goedert is insurance for Hockenson, but also can’t be used against me.  I focus on maintaining the advantage at the Tight End position in fantasy leagues.  It’s a way to keep an opponent’s scoring down.  Stafford hung around too long for this format.  Hopefully Stafford rots on my bench all year or gets traded for an upgrade.  Waddle was my first attempt at throwing a haymaker.  I loved him in the draft process and believe he pops off right away.  Ruggs III is too talented to have a repeat of his rookie season.  Ruggs III in the 15th round is a tremendous lottery ticket.  Lindsay and Bernard are PPR caliber flex plays.  If I had to pick one I’d go with Bernard right now.  Watson was a throw away pick to see if a trade happens or his league situation gets cleared up.  If he gets deactivated, I have a clear cut guy to use for early waiver wire pickups. I’m happy with this team and looking to defend my crown.
