    Really like your draft. Watch out with Sidney Rice because if Favre is retiring for real this time he might see a drop off. Really like the Aromashodu pick,he is going to be good sleeper this year. This is my first year playing fantasy football so I hope I helped.

    Can I get pointers on my team?

    QB-Matt Shaub,Jay Cutler,Carson Palmer
    RB-Ray Rice,Steven Jackson,Knowshon Moreno,Matt Forte
    WR-Roddy White,Greg Jennings,Hines Ward,Kenny Britt(sleeper)
    TE-Brent Celek,Kellen Winslow
    K-Lawrence Tynes
    D-New York Jets

    I prob. dont have to tell you the risks of injury you take by having Moreno and Jackson on your team I'm sure. Love the Qbs you have and TE's are solid. Ward is a risky pick at this point of his career and with the whole Big Ben saga. Pitt is going to be a run first team for awhile. Dont expect big numbers from him. Everthing else looks great.

    Thanks I appreciate the comments. I agree Ward is the only one I'm really doubting as a starter. I see a drop off in him this year and was thinking of releasing him and getting a different receiver maybe Breaston or Hartline. I really wanted Aromashodu like you had but a guy drafted him just before me. Also yeah Moreno and Jackson are gambles,Marion Barber is still available so I was considering that too. Thanks for the help.

    ESPN Snake draft (mock)
    1. Andre Johnson WR
    2. Tom Brady QB
    3. Reggie Wayne WR
    4. Jamaal Charles RB
    5. Ronnie Brown RB
    6. Matt Forte RB
    7. Brandon Jacobs RB
    8. Jermichael Finley TE
    9. Jay Cutler QB
    10. Kevin Kolb QB
    11. Chris Cooley TE
    12. Terrell Owens WR
    13. Mario Manningham WR
    14. Devin Aromashodu WR
    15. Ravens D/ST D/ST
    16. Dan Carpenter K

    Note: Landed the 2nd pick in a snake draft so I almost got the back-to-backer as well —so close. Not sure why I picked Charles but I was running out of time. Really liked these picks tonight; think I might try to replicate it in the league draft. For some reason my mocks always turn out better than my actual league drafts.

    You took a HUGE risk taking RB as early as you did. I hope he pans out. Andre Johnson is a great first option. I have to say I am weary of your QB and RB selections though.Cutler is coming off the worst year of his career, all things considered SHOULD have a good yr. Brady is solid as long as he stays healthy and we are all hoping Kolb isnt a one hit wonder. Forte should bounce back nicely this yr, I selected him as well. IMO Charles may get the brunt of the carries, but Jones will get the brunt of the scoring which makes your selection of him a risk. Brandon Jacobs has not looked the same since his injury. In my opinion the best option when you get backs like the ones you have is to keep a close eye on their back ups and problematic injuries that could occur.

    EDIT: didnt see it was a mock. Love your wr and TE selections. For the most part this is a solid mock.

    [​IMG]
    Figure drafting him might not be that big a risk :D

    Seriously thought, he's on a contract year. Players tend to magically not get hurt on contract years.

    Spiller was a horrible pick, imo.

    Your weak at WR bc of that Spiller pick. Def can't be too confident with MSW and Rice.

    Aside from WR, your team looks pretty good. I'd def look to pick up another RB somewhere too.

    You're pretty stacked.

    After White, your WRs are kind of a question mark that I'd look to work on. Jennings is a crapshoot.

    Aside from that, nice.

    I would of passed on Brady there, but your team is pretty good either way.

    Only thing I'd be a little concerned about is RB. You have a lot of potential w/Charles, but if he doesn't have a good year you'll be in trouble. Esp if your league isn't ppr.

    People are thinking better OL play plus Mike Martz offense equals PPR juggernaut.

    I don't see it either. If you put a gun to my head and forced me to draft a Bears RB, I'd take Chester Taylor as late as possible.

    I agree with both of you.

    He's extremely overrated and people love to slap a "bounce back year" label on RBs.

    12 teams/15 round draft. No PPR.

    Was a snake drafting format and I started 8th.


    Round(overall)

    1(8) Andre Johnson
    2(17) Peyton Manning
    3(32) Ronnie Brown (Contract year )
    4(41) Dallas Clark
    5(56) Matt Forte
    6(65) Mike Sims-Walker
    7(80) Kellen Winslow (BPA, imo)
    8(89) Jerome Harrison
    9(104) Donovan McNabb
    10(113) Malcom Floyd
    11(128) Pitt (D/ST)
    12(137) Donald Brown
    13(152) Brian Hartline
    14(161) Kevin Smith (took a flyer)
    15(176) Dan Carpenter (I look for us to put up some serious points this season)

    Look OK to you all?


    Here is my projected starting lineup:

    QB:Peyton Manning
    RB1:Ronnie Brown
    RB2:Matt Forte
    WR1:Andre Johnson
    WR2:Mike Sims-Walker
    TE: Dallas Clark
    Flex(RB/WR):Jerome Harrison/maybe Malcom Floyd


    I started a thread on this with no replies but this is better having them all grouped into one thread. Good job! :up:

    How did I do?

    I hope you drafted late in round 1. I don't see S. Greene putting up top 10 fantasy #s. I see him as a fantasy bust.

    Calvin Johnson is a possible bust candidate for a round 2 draft, being on such a horrible team.

    Matt Forte looks like a steal to me that late. I think he puts up 1500+ total yards and 10+ tds this season.

    Tony Romo will probably throw about 30 tds this year.

    I hate your TE's.

    You have a pretty solid team overall.

    Things went wrong after Manning, imo.

    Don't like your RBs or where you took them.

    WRs are really rough after AJ. MSW is always an injury risk.

    Taking Winslow there when you have Clark made no sense to me.

    This was my actual draft for a real league (tried to replicate the two "successful" mocks; to no avail)

    Very slim at the RB position IMO
    Currently working on replacing Olsen for Heath Miller off waivers.

    1. Andre Johnson WR
    2. Peyton Manning QB
    3. Tom Brady QB
    4. Steve Smith WR
    5. Brandon Jacobs RB
    6. Santana Moss WR
    7. Ricky Williams RB
    8. C.J. Spiller RB
    9. Kellen Winslow TE
    10. Steve Breaston WR
    11. Steve Slaton RB
    12. Greg Olsen TE
    13. Mario Manningham WR
    14. Steelers D/ST D/ST
    15. Mohamed Massaquoi WR

    1) I think my top 2 RBs will have strong seasons this year (R.Brown and Forte). Also, my backup RBs look pretty solid for fill-ins or strong matchups for flex. Jerome Harrison, Arian Foster (now), and Donald Brown is an Addai injury (or poor play) from being a full-time starter.

    2) You are right on MSW, he is inury prone, mut Malcom Floyd should be a decent #2 fill-in or even a flex play with V. Jackson looking to be out until week 10, if at all. But MSW is undisputedly the #1 WR on that team, he will get alot of targets I think.

    3) There are only 2 players that I might regret not taking that were available when I chose Kellen Winslow in the 7th round/79th overall:

    a) P. Garcon (taken 8th round/95th overall) - not the #1 on his team that has a TON of weapons, and Peyton uses them all.

    b) CJ Spiller (taken 7th round/83rd overall) - deep backfield, it's the Jills, I hate drafting rookies.

    I also like the fact that I have a TE handcuff if Dallas Clark gets injured that is a top-flight talent, and will lead his team in catches, rec. yards, and TD's this year.

    Also, he can be great trade bait during the season, not to mention that it will be addition by subtraction in my head-to-head matchups. If he is on my team I don't have to play against him. :lol:


    Noone knows for sure but I think I have a pretty solid team to start the season, barring injuries. I will do one more draft before the season starts because I like having 2 teams, more than 2 teams cramps my style a bit lol.

    Did you copy my draft? :lol:

    Nice move drafting Tom Brady in round 3. You can trade him or P. Manning and get a top tier RB+. :up:

    That is all you really need to do. Your team looks great aside from RB, which looks horrible now, imo. I don't like any of your RB's really. Brandon Jacobs will definately gove up a lot of carries to the more talented, imo, Bradshaw.

    Slaton's neck injury looks pretty serious from what I hear out of Texans camp. I hear he is not 100% and that coupled with fumblitis, that isn't great news for him.

    I would try to get 2 good RB's in a trade for one of your QB's and another player or 2.

    Nice looking team with potential.

    I'd never advise that strategy.

    You're really gambling a lot on making a trade. Lots of things can go wrong there. If one of your QBs gets hurt, you're screwed. In most leagues with competitive people, they'll see what you're trying to do and really try to rake you over the coals bc they have the advantage of knowing you NEED to make the trade.

    Assuming a 12 team league, starting 1 QB, I would think someone would pony up with QB being the last piece of the puzzle. Even a 10 team league, we are talking Tom Brady or Peyton Manning for trade bait. He should be able to get a trade done before the deadline.

    But it's still "should". I just don't see the point in drafting 2 QBs that early and then attempting to trade one for a position that you could of just drafted in the 1st place.

    I'd wana see who he passed on for Brady.

    So I just had my draft the other night. Here is some background on the league. This is a 10-owner keeper league. You're allowed to keep 2 players from the prior year at their draft position (mine are: Shonn Greene - 11th round and Beanie Wells - 7th round).

    Anyways, the league is structured so that you must start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR/TE, 1 K and 1 DEF. Each team has 17 roster spots.

    Here is my roster:

    QB - Matt Ryan, Chad Henne

    RB - Shonn Greene, Beanie Wells, Felix Jones, Justin Forsett, Donald Brown, Leon Washington

    WR - Andre Johnson, Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith (CAR), Mike Wallace, Chaz Schilens, Dexter McCluster

    TE - Jermichael Finley

    K - Ryan Longwell

    DEF - Cowboys

    I'm also currently considering releasing Chaz Schilens and picking up Ben Tate. Our league doesn't have an IR, so in essence I would be burning a roster spot for the entire year -- but Tate should have some real value this time next year as a potential keeper in the last round. Your thoughts?

    After doing at least 30 12 Man leagues then going back for a 10 man league it is incredibly easy to win 10 man leagues. 12 man leagues just prepare you so well because you get a good idea
    about values.

    I think the main reason I stopped doing 10 man leagues was it wasn't nearly as challenging in draft mode.

    Completely agree. I really don't have any interest in doing a league of less than 12 anymore. Otherwise, it's just too easy for everyone to have a good team or a select few to be completely stacked.

    I also hate flex plays. Just having 3 WR spots makes the field much slimmer and more competitive.

    Buddy of mine had a league that needed one more and I joined up, first year I've ever played Fantasy Football. It's a 12 team league with QB, RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE, K, D/ST, as the starting lineup and not PPR. Draft was last night and with the 7th pick in a snake draft I got this.

    QB: Matt Schaub, Chad Henne, Carson Palmer
    RB: Steven Jackson, Ronnie Brown, C.J. Spiller, Kevin Smith
    WR: Miles Austin, Pierre Garcon, Hakeem Nicks, Devin Aromashodu, Jabar Gaffney
    TE: Zach Miller (OAK), Rob Gronkowski
    D/ST: San Francisco 49ers
    K: Dan Carpenter

    Little weak at RB and TE could be an issue but think Campbell will use Miller a lot, and also think Brady has a good year (unfortunately) and Gronkowski gets some balls thrown his way with the focus on Moss and Welker. Same thing maybe with Gresham in Cincinnati so maybe sneak him through waivers if he starts out better than Gronkowski.
