    Default Got 4 of the first 5 picks. I could use help deciding!

    Hi all, going into the draft I have the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th overall pick. I'm looking for help figuring out who to select. The league format is the same as in my signature. Here are the keepers on my team:

    C - Lindholm, JT Miller(LW)
    LW - Panarin
    RW - Nylander
    D -
    G -

    Here are the top available players to draft:
    - Morgan Rielly (D)
    - Zach Werenski (D)
    - Alex Pietrangelo (D)
    - Thomas Chabot (D)
    - Jacob Markstrom (G)
    - Alexandar Georgiev (G)
    - Elvis Merzlikins (G)
    - Sam Reinhart (RW)
    - Teuvo Teravainen (LW,RW)

    I'm thinking I go with:
    Pick 1. Rielly
    Pick 2. Markstrom
    Pick 3. Werenski or Chabot
    Pick 4. [Not my pick]
    Pick 5. Reinhart, followed by Werenski or Chabot

    I'd appreciate help figuring out if I'm picking the right guys in the right order. With my first three picks I think I need to go with top D (there's a premium on D scoring in our league) and a goalie since I have none and they go quickly in our draft.

    #1: Rielly
    #2: Markstrom
    #3: Chabot
    #4: --------
    #5: Reinhart or Teavo because he is dual position

    IMO take Reinhart pick three, you only have to wait one pick to get a good defender that will be there at 5. Reinhart is an 80 point threat which even additional D points he is still more valuable.

    I am assuming this isn't for the league in your signature, so how many do you start at each position?
    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Mercer, Wheeler, Lee, JRobertson, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Bennett, Tuch, WJohnston, KConnor, Necas, Point, Konecny, SJarvis, Cozenz, Vrana, Benn

    G- Vasilevskiy, Sorokin, Oettinger

    I don't think the order matters much. Rielly, Markstrom and then Reinhart. Take whichever D is left, assuming one of Chabot or Werenski get taken at 4.

    Thanks guys. You make great points. Ill go Rielly, Markstrom, Reinhardt, and Werenski / Chabot at #5. If both of those Dmen are available a 5, do you recommend one over the other?
