Default Re: The 2012 "Rate My Draft" Thread

I drafted 1st in a 12 team, non-ppr, 6 points per passing TD league. It's very QB driven, so I had to go with Aaron Rodgers with the first pick. If AP is healthy this year, I should be a shoe-in for the playoffs. I'm happy to have gotten Gerhart as the AP handcuff in the 9th round. I was hoping to get CJ Spiller in the 10th, but someone grabbed him 2 spots before my pick. Still happy with this draft.

QB Rodgers, Aaron(QB) GB
RB Jackson, Fred(RB) BUF
RB Peterson, Adrian(RB) MIN
WR Colston, Marques(WR) NO
WR Green, A.J.(WR) CIN
TE Davis, Fred(TE) WAS
RB-WR-TE McGahee, Willis(RB) DEN
DST Packers(DST) GB

Bench (QB) Fitzpatrick, Ryan(QB) BUF

Bench (WR) Floyd, Malcom(WR) SD
Bench (WR) Wayne, Reggie(WR) IND

That's a good haul, Rodgers and Graham are good picks. I wanted Graham to fall to me in the 2nd in my draft, but that didn't happen. Your WRs seem to be lacking. I doubt Moss will do anything in SF with Alex Smith at the helm. Not sure if Sidney Rice will be healthy enough to play either. I wish you had gotten Jaquizz Rodgers to handcuff Turner since he's 30 now and has had 300+ carries for something like 6 years in a row. Also, see if Williams in AZ is available, he may take Beanie's starting spot, which will really hurt your RB corps.

How many teams were in this draft?

At first I was like WOW!, but then I read that it's an 8 team league. 8 teams is cheating.

12 man league.

RD1: Drew Brees
RD2: Jamal Charles
RD3: Steven Jackson
RD4: Brandon Marshal
RD5: Ben Tate
RD6: Demaryius Thomas
RD7: Owen Daniels
RD8: Torrey Smith

RD10: Kenny Britt
RD11: Kendall Hunter
RD12: Javhid Best
RD13: Rob Bironas
RD14: Jermaine Gresham
RD15: Russel Wilson
RD16: Jacoby Ford

To be honest, looking back at this draft I have a few "WTF" moments for myself. I got sucked into drafting a defense early because people were drafting them as early as round 7. I shouldn't have let that phase me as we are all mostly new (this is the second year for this league). I do like having Revis though. Also picking a kicker when there may have been some good sleepers. I think at that point I had lost most of the sleepers that I was eyeballing. Except Russel Wilson, I waited for him because I was 99% sure no one would draft him.

I'd say you have some damn good depth. WR is a little iffy with Miles Austin, but for myself I'm counting on Britt to come back and have a strong performance. I had him last season and he was really bummed when he got injured. Just gotta cross your fingers that he stays off the bottle this year.

So I´d also really like to hear your thoughts about my draft. 10 team league, normal scoring - I picked 6th:

QB: Cam Newton
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Steve Smith (CAR)
WR: Brandon Lloyd
HB: Ryan Mathews
HB: Darren Sproles
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Shayne Graham
DEF: New York Giants

Bench: Ahmad Bradshaw
Bench: Demaryius Thomas
Bench: Darrius Hewayd-Bey
Bench: Ben Tate
Bench: Andy Dalton
Bench: Owen Daniels

I am not quite satisfied with my HBs and TEs, other than that I think I did ok.

Nice WR depth, but what are you going to do about Matthews being out for quite a while, put in Bradshaw? AB did ok in the playoffs but I don't see him suddenly being a *great* RB. It may be rough for you until Matthews is back, or if you pick up a nice sleeper early on.

Thanks for the reply Joey!

Well Mathews said he was ready for week 1, and it sounds like he probably only misses the 1st game and that is more a precaution. So I was kinda planning on using him from week 2 on. But he is injury prone, and I wasn`t thrilled taking him, but he was the top HB on my list (and on all experts lists I could find) with a little drop of to the next so I decided to bite the bullet. If he can stay healthy he should do pretty good as the featured back.

And don`t count out Bradshaw - he is no Foster, but he is a tough guy that usually gets his yards. Again, I´d have liked to get some other HBs, but when it was my turn to pick, the guys I´d really want were already gone. That`s what you get when you take a WR (Megatron) and a QB (Newton) with your first two picks.

I can relate to that, I took Drew Brees as my first, and although it's nice to get a top 5 QB you really start to feel it once you try to pick a RB. That's why I joined some random ESPN pick-up league and drafted RBs and WRs first, and picked up a QB and everything else pretty late. I'll see how that team does compared to my first league. I'd say Megatron could be worth it though. I had him last season and he was a life saver while Arian Foster was out.
