Start with RB or WR?
The key decision in the first round of your draft is whether to take a running back or wide receiver. If your league starts two quarterbacks, has a superflex (that allows for a quarterback) or has some sort of non-standard scoring rules, then the equation may be different. If it's a PPR or standard scoring league that features any typical combination of starters, then they are really the only two positions you should select. Quarterback is super deep this year and no top quarterback goes in the first two rounds in most leagues anyway. Tight end is too injury prone and I haven't seen a draft where you need to take a tight end in the first round to get Rob Gronkowski
