My main league always drafts a little early so I guess I'll start the thread out this season.

Starters
1 QB
3 WR
2 RB
1 TE
1 K
1 Def

6 points for all TD's
1 point per 10 yard rec/rush
1/2 point per reception
1 point per 20 return yards
1 point per 50 yards passing

10 team league I got the 5th pick

1. Marshawn Lynch
2. Dez Bryant
3. Randall Cobb
4. Jimmy Graham
5. Darren Sproles
6. T.Y. Hilton
7. RG III
8. Andre Brown
9. Andrew Luck
10. Eddie Lacy
11. Emmanuel Sanders
12. Cordarelle Patterson
13. Jacquizz Rodgers
14. Riley Cooper
15. Seattle Def
16. Mason Crosby

I thought Graham in the 4th was ridiculous value and I probably reached on TY. My QB situation seems boom or bust and I"m not happy with Jacque or Riley. But I like my team at this point.

Whatdoyathink?

Hitting Sproles in the 5th in a PPR format is golden. I was burned by Quizz all last season although. technically he still got on average 7 points a game. Being able to get Seattles D without doing an early pick is nice. Extremely high on Lacy, I'm actually targeting him in my 5-6th rounds in my draft next week.

I don't really like any of your receivers after Dez and Cobb. I like TY a little, but I'm sure there were better options, I have a deep deep list of WRs on my board and I'm planning on taking the bulk of my WR depth in rounds 8-10. An Eagles WR who will be a good value in PPR leagues to watch is Avant. If he starts to flash high catch totals with Maclin out drop Cooper and take him.

Your best picks:
Bryant in the second: There is an A+ Tier for WRs featuring just 3 WRs in my opinion. Especially in PPR. Those 3 are AJ Green, Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall (Megatron is in the S tier). Those are the only receivers I would think of taking in the second. They are all exceptional athletes, the primary receiver in their offense, and the other options in the passing attack aren't particularly attractive, or are in a decline.

Jimmy Graham in the 4th and Darren Sproles in the 5th: The #1 and #3 option in the Saints passing attacks in very valuable rounds? Yes please

Andrew Luck in the 9th: I especially like the pairing with RGIII. It's good insurance in case the worst should happen. Luck is pretty much a stand alone fantasy starter anyway because honestly the rest of the team outside of the QB, WRs, and TEs aren't that good. So they will throw a lot.

Eddie Lacy in the 10th. I love this guy this year. Early scare about him being a RBBC however Franklin has reportedly looked bad in camp, and unfortunately for me Lacy is had a monster of a game this week.

Your worst pick: Cordarelle Patterson in the 12. Unless your league gives points for return yards I don't see you getting much play out of him. Yes he looked good vs us. However, the offense will run through Adrian Peterson. Also, even when passing he'll be behind Jennings, Rudolph, and possibly Simpson. There are plans to use Rudolph alot more between the 20s this season and he'll be a focal point of their passing attack.

That said to have your worst pick be that late is the sign of an extremely strong draft. Enjoy your playoff berth my friend

Thanks for the feedback man, the only thing I can say is that WR's went quick. I got to the 6th round and guys that are usually there were gone. Not sure how much I trust TY but the only other viable option was Stevie Johnson, who would have been a decent pick but I gambled on TY.

Thanks Brandon!

After hearing that and checking my board, Emmanual Sanders in the 11th was a pretty good pick, I have him listed as one of my options in the 9th of a 12 team full point PPR league. He's not at the top of the list but a "settle" option.

My big draft next week is 12 team, 6pt TD passes, 1pt. PPR, 5 point bonuses each for reaching the following yardage goals, 100/200 rushing or receiving yards, 300/450 passing yards. 1 point for every 25 kick/punt return yards.

1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1RB/WR/TE, K, DEF

I'm picking 5th as well. Heres my draft plan round by round. (revamped based on new preseason performances) The asterisk designates last resort

I don't go by ADP, because my league doesn't really follow that anyway. I go by Vibes based on team history, offseason activity, and preseason performance. The last 2 times I tried to go by ADP against the people in my league I always ended up taking people I hated/didn't feel good about because the people I did feel good about had a really late ADP and I tried to be smarter than everyone else.

Round 1: AD, Foster, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles, CJ Spiller
Round 2: AJ Green, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall
(Contingency if above 3 are gone: Forte, Bush, Steven Jackson, Chris Johnson, Steven Ridley*)
Round 3: The above contingency players +Darren McFadden, Darren Sproles, David Wilson, Randall Cobb*.
Round 4: Dwayne Bowe, Vincent Jackson, Roddy White, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Wes Welker, Marcus Colston*, James Jones*
Round 5: QB, or Eddie Lacy if there are still a lot of QBs I'm specifically targeting still on the board and not too many teams in the next 7picks need a QB.
Round 6: Eddie Lacy, Law Firm, Montee Ball, Mark Ingram, Shane Vareen
(Contingency: A QB if I end up taking Lacy in round 5)
Round 7: Above RBs, Deangelo Williams, Daryl Richardson (probably will move down after the big game by Pead today), Danny Woodhead.

Round 8: Mike Williams, Desean Jackson, Miles Austin, Josh Gordon, Lance Moore, Chris Givens
Round 9: Vincent Brown, Alshon Jeffrey, Emmanual Sanders, Sidney Rice, Micheal Floyd, DeAndre Hopkins
Round 10: Derius Hayward Bey, Rod Streeter, Tavon Austin, Kenny Stills, Start looking at QB depth or TEs*

After that it's TEs, backup QB, Kicker and Defense. I don't particularly have round by round targets for those, I'll mostly be looking for slips and my late late sleepers like Rob Housler. Also, if I don't get one of those 3WRs in the second, I'll be taking 4 RBs in my first 5 picks,

Everyone I've listed I have good to very good vibes for, even Run DMC, but I'd probably only take him in the 3rd

Solid dx.

I like ty more then others. Young wr who's going to get better playing with a qb who's going to get better. You probably aren't going to get an 80 catch season out of him but you might just get an 8-10 td year. Wayne has to slow down at some point and when he does you'll be thrilled to have him.

I like how you doubled up on young qbs. They both put up sick numbers as rookies and at least 1 of the 2 should break out a great year. High ceiling players.

Brown and lacey may not do a lot early on but be patient. Again high ceiling.

Dez scares me. He could be superman again or spend all year in the trainors room.

Rodgers and Cooper are throw away picks. I like patterson but you may not get a return on the pick till the last quarter of the season.

Your draft looks like an all or nothing approach to me. I like it.

Thanks for the response man. I agree with most of your takes.

Dez is scary but his upside is through the roof, I'll cross my fingers on that one.

Rodgers and Cooper are definitely throwaways, I wish they weren't on my team but the alcohol was flowing pretty heavy by the end of the draft.

Lacy looks like he could surprise this year and with Brown I'm just kinda hoping David Wilson fails as the primary backs. Great upside if he becomes the workhorse in NY.

You very well might be right. That was something I knew going in to the draft and that's coming from a guy that loves stocking up on RB's. If Lynch goes down I'm in big trouble but if he can repeat last years numbers I think I can find a solid number two on my roster or on the waiver wire.

I have a hard time trusting lynch completely because of his early career stats but he has been a bank the last 2 years. I look at his offense and KNOW until someone else steps up he is the focal point. His yardage may drop a bit (possibly) but I dont think his td's or at least his td opportunities will.

Sproles has been the rock of gibralter in terms of consistency for years now. Sure i'd like the guy more in a full point per reception format. He's a year older but sean payton is back and I think it evens out. 60 receptions is a safe expectation which translates to 30 points. Dx could do a lot worse. Sproles is safe though he shouldn't expect a monumental year.

When I mentioned an all or nothing approach in my previous post I was talking about everyone excluding lynch and sproles. They look like his safest picks to me.

The thing with this years draft though is there are questions with all the top RB's imo.

AP - safest pick in the draft, 18 months removed from ACL surgery
Foster - questions about missing week 1, insane workload, low ypc last year
Martin - rookie season last year, not super consistent, hurt already
Lynch - injuries in early career, looks to have fewer carries this season
Spiller - 5'11 195 supposed to take a full workload for first time, new QB, new coaching staff
Charles - Hurt already, history of injuries, smaller back, never handled full workload.
Mccoy - Smaller back, new offense, 1 concussion away from sitting out a few games
Morris - Shannahanigans, sophomore back, RG3 health

I could keep going but like Powda said, I feel like Lynch is the safe pick and probably not a homerun. Same with Sproles, it's PPR with 1 pt per 20 return yards which means Sproles should score at least a few points every week. He might not end up on the top performers list week in and week out but I also don't have to worry about him putting up goose eggs.

Interesting.

I had Spillers last year and he was great in a 3-5 game stretch considering the touches he got. He really is capable of scores and huge gains on any touch.

And as much as I like spillers I like Charles more. He's done fantastic things already previous to andy reid. Charles should have a boatload of receptions reminiscent of mccoy a couple of years ago. In ppr he should be a top 5 guy.

Neither player should make you feel "stuck" and instead fortunate. Forte is another type i'll be looking for in round 2. A trestman offense that gifted charlie garner 91 receptions a few years back...

14 team drafts are tough, amazing you were able to get that set of WR's. Having MJD and Ryan Mathews as your starting RB's sucks bad though. I guess you could luck out on that. You need RG3 and your backup RB's to step up for you.

Yeah I know. But for example, the best RB available with the 12th pick was Chris Johnson. I am not picking Chris over Calvin. And then I couldnt pass up A.J. Green in the second. I just hope that MJD returns to his normal self.

Ive never played a 14 team league but i have mocked it quite a bit. The results are always drastically different. You almost have to take a loss somewhere in that format so best of luck. I think g. bernard and brown might turn out ok. If you can get a handful of games out of Mathews you should be alright.

For those posting here in the future please remember to include your scoring system and team totals. Judging a ppr or a 14 team league can be significantly different...

Sting I look at AJ green and think not only is he a great player, but he's one of the marque players who should get better. Couple him with a qb who should get better and you should easily have the best wr combination in your league (johnson,johnson, and green...holy crap.) What would concern me is your depth behind them...and of couse your rb stats as previously mentioned.

Yep. when I drafted Calvin and A.J., I knew my Rb's were going to be risky backs. But I was willing to take that risk. I have won this league 2 out of the last 3 years. I have won some good payouts in this league. $150 to enter and 14 teams can add up to good payouts even for ending up in 3rd. Thanks for the feedback.

T austin, j blackmon, k wright, britt, and even our own hopkins are players im looking for late. Highly drafted talented players who should also get opportunities. I know im taking a stab at rb's early which means my wr depth will be weak so i've researched a lot of 3rd tier wideouts. Mix opportunity with talent and system and you have a recipe for success. Snag enough of them and you will hit pay dirt eventually.

My recipe this year is qb late, te late. My core will be rb's EARLY. When everyone else is scrambling for rbs by comitte, i'll be tracking down young wr's from a much bigger pool...

The problem with RB's this year is there just aren't a whole lot of them to choose from so even though these guys you listed may have some questions about them, they are still undoubtedly studs and all are very worthy of the first round. Martin was cleared of a concussion, so there's no issue there, and Charles foot issue is just a strain I believe (so it shouldn't bother too much). I also believe Arian is going to be playing that first game, even though we are reading about back injections and whatnot. Spiller is a definitely a top 5 back, and the Bills coaching staff has stated publicly they are using him till the wheels fall off.

EDIT: My RB draft board goes something like 1. AP 2. Martin 3. Spiller 4. Foster 5. Lynch 6. Charles 7. McCoy 9. Richardson 10. Rice 11. Morris

14 team league is hard, after the 8th round it gets pretty hard. Percy harvin was my drunk pick. i thought he was coming back in 6 weeks. Going to drop him.

I would like to know which RB's you passed on for Green in the 2nd.

I was thinking I'd be "stuck" with Spiller or Charles with my 8th pick. You think both are worthy or a top 5??


Interesting.

It's a full point PPR, and we get a bonus 5 points every 100 yards rushing or receiving. Both backs are capable of big gains which makes hitting that 100 easier.

Has anyone payed attention to dobson the 2nd round pick in New england last year? Welkers gone and danny a will be healthy for about 10 minutes. Receptions have to go somewhere. Sting I dont know the extent of harvin's injuries but dobson is a solid shot in the dark to me.

Watch tonight, but I'd look at Kenbrell Thompkins and Julien Edelman ahead of Dobson, and watch for Zach Sudfeld as their new "move" TE.

Round 1: AD, Foster, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles, CJ Spiller
Round 2: AJ Green, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall
(Contingency if above 3 are gone: Forte, Bush, Steven Jackson, Chris Johnson, Steven Ridley*)
Round 3: The above contingency players +Darren McFadden, Darren Sproles, David Wilson, Randall Cobb*.
Round 4: Dwayne Bowe, Vincent Jackson, Roddy White, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Wes Welker, Marcus Colston*, James Jones*
Round 5: QB, or Eddie Lacy if there are still a lot of QBs I'm specifically targeting still on the board and not too many teams in the next 7picks need a QB.
Round 6: Eddie Lacy, Law Firm, Montee Ball, Mark Ingram, Shane Vareen
(Contingency: A QB if I end up taking Lacy in round 5)
Round 7: Above RBs, Deangelo Williams, Daryl Richardson (probably will move down after the big game by Pead today), Danny Woodhead.

Round 8: Mike Williams, Desean Jackson, Miles Austin, Josh Gordon, Lance Moore, Chris Givens
Round 9: Vincent Brown, Alshon Jeffrey, Emmanual Sanders, Sidney Rice, Micheal Floyd, DeAndre Hopkins
Round 10: Derius Hayward Bey, Rod Streeter, Tavon Austin, Kenny Stills, Start looking at QB depth or TEs*



Surely you've got to use ADP to get started building something like that right?

I would have gone Rob Housler instead of Allen, but he's been in the doghouse with the team all preseason and he just got a high ankle sprain. Not much left on the board as far as TE goes at that point and I wanted 1 solid guy in case Cameron doesn't pan out. Unfortunately I didn't really get it in Allen. I'm kind of just using him as a holding spot until something happens in the season. Also trying to trade VJax and Allen for D. Bowe and Cook. So I might get that

I don't understand spending two picks on DST's unless you have a lot bench space. You'll do just as well playing match-ups with the waiver wire rather than carrying two units for the whole season. Whomever is playing the Jets or Raiders are probably good bets for 10 points.

Brandon420tx
08-25-2013, 02:45 PM
We have 7 bench spots and the defenses get points for all kinds of things. The bears put up a 60 point performance in one game last season. We also have roster limits, so it was choice between a really garbage backup QB (QBs fly off the draft in our league) or another garbage TE, or another kicker. I wanted Powell with my last RB spot and knew I'd get him. Really my last 3 picks were throwaway picks since I couldn't pick up another WR, and I only had 1 RB spot left. It came down to Helu and Powell for that last RB spot and Helu went before my Cameron pick

I love the martin-luck duo. Both players will only get better and Martin doesn't have to be much better to take the throne as the top rb in the league. Looks like you had your finger on the pulse of your competition by getting luck as the 11th qb. GREAT value.

Marshal wont put up the same gaudy stats but even 20 receptions and a couple hundred yards less then last year would still make him a beast. Jackson should be better with an improved freeman (i expect) ,and you'll get plenty of opportunities with moore as a very solid #3. New orleans will have an improved offense.

I dont like lacey as immediate starter though by midseason he should pay off. Hes still an unknown and starting an unknown is always a risk. You should be ok ultimately.

I do not like dwilliams but at that point in the draft you probably didnt have a lot of better options. I like your saturation drafting of wideouts with potential. Between jeffery, gordon, and blackmon someone will emerge and unseat moore or lacey as your starter.

Very solid I think. Your season hinges on Martin, Luck, Lacey and the emergence of a young wideout. You should be on the lookout for another te on the waiver wire. Most of us will be. Good Job and good luck.

Getting 3 solid RBs to start off was a good play. Not to mention each of those 3 has a chance at that 100 yard bonus (receiving or rushing). I like the late McFadden pick, but to add another injury prone RB in Mendenhall might come back to bite you. Between Hilton, Smith, and Amendola you'll have a good starting core. If Jeffrey continues to flash that'll add to your options even more. Gordon can be solid too. Lots of upside with Finley, seems to have noticed that whining doesn't get the ball thrown to you in GB.

You better hope RGIII plays week one and looks good. Getting 3 solid RBs to start off is always a solid play, especially since you still hauled in VJax and Reggie Wayne. I wanted Wayne with my 4th when I picked VJax but he was gone :(. Gio Bernard will probably be your top RB backup. Everyone seems to like Josh Gordon lately :tiphat:

Gronk probably won't be back till week 3, you might need to find another TE.

McFadden is the ultimate boom or bust. Fortunately for you, your stacked at wr. F Jackson and Ballard should get starts to help you out when McFadden does go down (Spiller and Bradshaw both have their share of injuries.) You cant find a more consistent TE then Witten over the last 5 years. (Upthread you'll see my thoughts on guys like Green, VJackson, and Luck.) Bowe should be improved with better qb play and might just fill your flex spot...

You basically had an upside down draft (targeting wr's over rb's) after Richardson ,but the quality of your wr's suggest it might actually work. You may have to stay on the lookout for a waiver wire RB or orchastrate a trade because of McFadden. If Finley/Witten workout you might have trade bait after their bye's? Nice draft. Good Luck.

For a 12 team roster your pretty stacked, especially at RB (Foster/CJ/Wilson will be good) which is probably the most important position the way your league scores rushing/receiving yardage. I'd keep an eye out week 1 on TE's and maybe some sleeper WR's (Maybe Kenbrell Thompkins from NE) to try to boost those positions after the first round of games.

If you are playing in a league where you can start 2 QB's, you need to draft the QB's first and then laugh at everybody else who doesn't.

Nice. And I like the non-te requirement. As a staunch cowboys hater might I suggest you only use Romo till December and then trade him? Romo is a classic choke artist when games become important...over the season statistically he may put up great numbers but when ff playoffs begin he's very likely to kill your team.

Great drafts. I actually like your league #2 players as much or more because of the forte/rice/gore combo (assuming romo has his normal season.) Both rosters should get you in the playoffs and 1 of the 2 could very likely get you a championship. Your league #1 rb depth and league #2 wr/te flex are the only things I see concerning. Good luck and great job bro.

The league format changed earlier today and I was glad I took a look at it right before the draft, it was originally going to be a 10 team league with 1QB 2RBs 2WRs 1TE 1Flex 1K, 1DST, 7 Bench, and i was going to try a bottom out draft for fun (WRs and TE first, RB second), but that would have been suicide in the new format

Once it hit 8 teams and I could start 4 RBs in a standard I knew exactly what I was going to do while people were drafting their WRs, TEs, and QBs early. 5 Straight RBs baby, as for WRs I tried to go for TD and/or yardage potential

In a draft where you have the chance to start 4 rb's , you sir, hit the jackpot. That strength means you had to take a loss somewhere else on your roster and that looks like wr#3 to me.(Be it Garcon or Williams - they're good not great players.) I like blackmon after his 4 game suspension and i'm ok with gordon whom a lot of people are talking up right now.)

I understand your line of thinking for te#2 (cook) though I myself would use the spot for another wr with potential. To me this is the baggage on your roster. I would almost argue you carry kapernick OR wilson but not both after the first couple of games. You might be able to trade 1 of those qb's plus maybe Williams for a top teir wr. Just something to think about.

All in all good job. The martin, mccoy, wilson, jones-drew combo is freaking sick. If kap does his part (say 3600 yards passing -21tds-15 ints- 400 yards rushing ) you should be in great shape. The kap/v davis double dip isn't exactly brady-welker but it shouldn't hurt. Again, keep your eyes open for wr's in free agency. Overall, i'd be thrilled with your roster.

I like brees/richardson/aj a lot. Your roster could turn out great ,but I see one glaring problem: Ryan Matthews is your flex (or Stevie Johnson.) You have very little roster depth and counting on Matthews could haunt you.

If you can solidify that flex spot and add a little more depth you might make a deep run in the playoffs because the rest of your starters are really strong. Watch that waiver wire and good luck.

Your #3 starting wr looks like a weakness on this roster. I dunno, I just dont trust a. bolden to put up good weekly numbers. With crabtree out this year though I could be wrong. I'd keep a close eye on what kinda production you get out of that spot.

In a ppr league the combo of charles/bush/spoles could be deadly for your opponents. Those backs always put up strong receiving stats.

If I had this roster and I had to make room for new players i'd consider cutting someone like cutler, broyles, or 1 of the 2 te's (whichever one doesn't pan out.) Good job and good luck.

8 team league on yahoo. Mostly regular scoring except:

1. 2 individual Defensive players rather than 0
2. 2 WRs rather than 3.
3. 1 Flex W/R rather than 0.
4. 1 Flex W/R/T rather than 0.

Draft was last night, 3 people attended and 5 autopicked.

Here is my team:

QB: Peyton Manning
WR: Roddy White, Dwayne Bowe
RB:LeSean McCoy, Alfred Morris
TE: Rob Gronkowski
W/R: David Wilson(RB)
W/R/T: Steven Jackson

Bench:Lamar Miller(RB), Reggie Wayne (WR), Wes Welker (WR), Andrew Luck (QB), Ben Tate (RB), Mike Wallace (WR)

K: Randy Bullock
Def: Cincinatti
D: James Laurinatis, J.J. Watt

My strategy was to load up on RBs high and often. Since we play with 4 potential RBs every week, I wanted to grab good ones. As a result I think I have a very weak WR and potentially very weak TE group. In fact the only TE i have is Gronk at the moment. QBs seem ok with Peyton, but I am not sure how Luck will do. I think he will have a lot of short passes, but its unknown if that will translate FFB wise.

Great draft and you should have a very good season. I'd personally start wayne or welker over bowe without a doubt.

If your defensive players are scored by tackles and assists your best bet is probably a linebacker that never leaves the field. With this roster, your chances look like they rest on injuries and roster management, because the talent is there. Good luck.

If your defensive players are scored by tackles and assists your best bet is probably a linebacker that never leaves the field. With this roster, your chances look like they rest on injuries and roster management, because the talent is there. Good luck.

Thanks! I was fiddling back and forth between Bowie as a starter or bench playr. I think I will ride with Wayne ber him this week.

I thought about having a lb tackling machine like laurinitis and luke kechly but i decided to take a chance and roll the dice on watt.

Thats a great draft with great starter worthy depth... Wayne and Miller are most peoples starters.

I believe Morris will be a top 5 RB this yr. So much potential...

I like Morris because I think shanahan will try to keep RG3 healthy. I expect more swing passes, screens, and runs to Morris this year.

You might want to see if there are more "stable" QB2 options just in case (somebody who never gets hurt like maybe Eli, or Andy Dalton). Not sure about having 2 defenses either, I like to wait to draft defense and kicker until the last 2 rounds.

If you cant find a stud WR1 without trading Martin or Richardson I would do it, otherwise standing pat wouldn't be the worst ever. Your WR group is still really good, especially when Gordon comes back.

I think I slayed league 1. League 2 I feel good about, just not as much as League 1.

Good luck to all this year.

League 1. I would have won it all but Jamal Charles sent me to the 3rd place game. 10-3, 3rd place overall.

My final lineup:
T. Brady QB -
A. Peterson RB -
E. Decker WR -
A. Green WR -
J. Graham TE -
B. Marshall WR - flex
S. Gostkowski K -
49ers D/ST

bench:
C. Ogbonnaya RB
T. Gerhart RB
C. Shorts WR
M. Colston WR
D. Walker TE
R. Fitzpatrick QB
Chiefs D/ST

-I traded Z Stacy for Brandon Marshall
-I dumped Green Bay for KC D/ST, then pickup 9ers when someone dropped them
-I rode Peterson, but when he and Gerhart couldn't go I was stuck.
-Stacy and KC were my best pick ups



League 2
I won it all. 9-4, 1st place overall.

final lineup:
Tony Romo DAL QB
Matt Forte CHI RB
Zac Stacy STL RB
Brandon Marshall CHI WR
Josh Gordon CLE WR
Keenan Allen SDG WR
Dan Bailey DAL K
New England Patriots NWE D/ST

bench:
Mike Glennon, QB
Frank Gore, RB
Ray Rice, RB
Victor Cruz, WR
Matt Bryant, K


-I was sweating P Manning in the championship game but the rest of my opponents lineup was pretty weak.
-My best pickups were Keenan Allen and Zac Stacy



All in all in was a pretty good year. It will be weird w/out fantasy football this coming weekend.

Because it's never too early:

never too early.

I wish they had one of these for PPR.

Nick Foles at #4 is crazy, but it makes complete sense. I told myself I would do everything I could to target him in the 5th round next year, but it doesn't look like he will make it that far next year.
