It all depends on how the draft plays
Adam Wagner - Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire Its time for Round 2 of the fantasy football draft. Remember to draft according to the settings of the league that you're participating in. Kevin Epstein and I discussed scarcity on my last show and how it relates to fantasy football. Please don't become a victim of taking a QB in the 1st or 2nd Rds.
