Jim Cramer Gets His Guy: Takes Carson Wentz In The 7th Round, But Was It Too Early?

Bill Enright

"Wait On Your Quarterback" that's what we preach here at Bull Market Fantasy so we were a bit surprised to see Jim Cramer take Carson Wentz in the 7th Round.

Separate emotions.

 Don't draft with your heart. 

Wait on your Quarterback. 

Three simple rules I engrained in Jim Cramer's head before his draft. At least that's what I thought...

In the 7th round, Jim's patience buckled a bit. He lasted six whole rounds before taking a QB and six whole rounds before taking his first Eagles player. But in the 7th Round, he broke two rules with one pick. 

Jim was trying to round out his starting lineup and by going heavy on running back and wide receiver earlier in the draft, Quarterback was his missing link. So I can't give him too much flak. 

The problem I have with the pick is the fact Jim took Wentz as the 5th QB off the board. He could have easily waited another four rounds, loaded up even more on running back or wide receiver, or gotten another great tight end to go along with his man Travis Kelce. So again, it's not the player, because I do have Wentz ranked inside my Top 8, it's just where he grabbed him. 

Remember, there's plenty of QBs to draft in fantasy, it's by far the deepest position and unless you are in a 2 QB or Super Flex league, you only have to start one of them. 

Draft like a pro. WAIT ON YOUR QB!

I have both James Washington and Devin Smith as flex options this week. Smith with the better matchup but Washington rapport with Rudolph could mean a potential breakout. Who should I start? Or should I start both and sit Breida. 2 flex PPR

Way too early. You can get a Trubisky or Goff later and get the same production.

We live and learn. My first season playing high stakes at the Fantasy Football World Championships, I took Culpepper in the 2nd round. At the time, wondered why everyone was snickering. Its always about price for me.

I would have waited another round or two for Wentz. Could have gotten better value in the 7th round then Wentz.

I'm in full wait mode when it comes to 1QB leagues. There are about 15 guys I'm comfortable starting. I like Wentz, but I can't take him that high. Only Top 4 QBs should be off the board by then.

Can't reach for Wentz. Rodgers or Watson sure. Otherwise WAIT

It's like buying stock in a company because your cousin works there. Just admit that's why you did it and don't make it anything more or less than that.

I love Wentz!! But that was still way too early. Gotta separate fantasy from fandom.

MY breakout player at the position in 2019 BUT 7th round is WAYYY too early indeed. When drafting for real money you need to draft with your head and not with heart. #DontOverpayForPlayersOnYourFavoriteTeam
