ANDY BEHRENS: All right. No one ever dreams of drafting fourth. I get it. And yet, this spot actually produced the most league winners in Yahoo Fantasy last year. The most. It has a terrific history in Yahoo drafts, in fact. Years of data is telling us that you want something like a top six pick, and you got it.

This year, Alvin Kamara has been the pick in an average draft at this spot. Kamara led the NFL in touchdowns last year. He carried us through the fantasy postseason, you might recall, a monster in the money weeks for us. The man has never finished with fewer than 80 receptions or 1,300 scrimmage yards in any year.

And if you don't want him, you can get Zeke or some other dominant running back here, and then it's a volume wide receiver in round two. And that is why the fourth spot always cashes in fantasy leagues. I'd keep going here, but you don't need my help. You're going to run this thing.
