Default The 2012 "Rate My Draft" Thread

I drew #3 in a 10-team, 16 round snake draft. I usually start with 2 RB's, but I went BPA instead this time for the first 3 rounds.

1. Ray Rice
2. Cam Newton
3. Rob Gronkowski
4. Trent Richardson
5. Steve Smith (CAR)
6. Demariyus Thomas
7. BenJarvus Green-Ellis
8. Philip Rivers
9. Tony Gonzalez
10. Michael Crabtree
11. Sebastian Janikowski
12. Steelers DST
13. Darius Heyward-Bey
14. Falcons DST
15. Greg Little
16. Bernard Pierce

It seems like there wasn't a whole lot to choose from, but I say that every year.

I also used a new FF service this time around. Their waiver wire advice was great last year, but I didn't get to use them for the draft.

Richardson and Green-Ellis both seem fairly high and why draft 2 DST's much less 1? I'm not saying there is only one way to draft but typically there are anywhere from 15 to 22 DST units available after a draft and why not use those picks on skill players who might have a good preseason? Riding match ups (say whoever was playing the Colts in a given week last year) will still get you a ton of points.

Not a big fan of Bradshaw as an RB, but Giants RB's are hard to pin down from year to year anyway. I'm also not a big fan of rookie WR's (Usually only 1 or 2 end up being good their rookie year). Boom or bust team.

How was Richardson at catching the ball out of the backfield at 'bama? I know hillis isn't going to get a lot of passes out of the backfield but in a PPR league RB's that catch the ball a lot are pretty valuable as well. I think Wayne is going to end up with more catches than Maclin but other than that seems decent all around.

I still hate seeing people draft DST's with anything other than the last pick if at all. Those spots could be late round flyers on guys who could contribute more and there's almost certainly a defense or 5 that didn't get picked this year that are going to be stellar. It always happens like that.

Richardson can do it all. If he's healthy I bet he can touch the ball well over 300 times this year including 40-50 times catching.

Drafting a D/ST at that spot is really not much of a risk at all. I let people get all the big name defenses like the Texans and the Niners early and just grabbed a solid defense late(I was the second to last person to pick a defense). I don't have any ties to be forced to keep Seattle if they're doing poorly and i usually pick up 4 or 5 different defenses during the year during bye weeks and bad matchups.

I just waiver wire defenses and go by match-ups unless I grab a defense that gets hot. Last year my "Pick up defenses playing against the Colts" strategy worked pretty damn well about 12 of the 16 weeks of the football season. That 11th rounder in my league could've been one of Robert Meachem, Justin Blackmon, Ben Roethlisberger, Santonio Holmes, all kinds of guys that could possibly be a nice sleeper.

There will still be defenses and special teams units that will probably put up 140 - 160 points this year that did not get drafted.

None of those guys were available at that point. Some of the sleeper QBs i wanted were gone although i still got Fitz in the 13th i believe. Seemed like the best option. A good defense won't win you many games in fantasy, but a bad one can certainly lose it for you. Playing matchups is no guarantee. I played the Vikings D last year against the Broncos and Tebow last year and got a nice -3 and a loss.

Why would you knowingly play the Vikings defense last year? Even without hindsight that's just a bad idea all around for last year. The idea behind match-ups is that you want to play a team that is going up against a terrible offensive team. The Broncos may have qualified for that at some points last year but the Colts/Browns/Jaguars/Bucs were all consistently terrible on offense and pumped up otherwise mediocre defenses to 20 point games for them.

If you could, I'd love to see what got taken in the 11th and 12th rounds of your draft. I'm absolutely sure there's a player on those lists that will have a shot at getting you a decent amount of points that could even be considered trade bait for people who are desperate. Picking a DST in a draft is for suckers.

3.

Denarius Moore(Oak - WR)



4.

Matt Flynn(Sea - QB)



5.

Andy Dalton(Cin - QB)



6.

Nate Burleson(Det - WR)



7.

Seattle(Sea - DEF)



8.

Matt Cassel(KC - QB)


9.

Josh Freeman(TB - QB)


10.

Kansas City(KC - DEF)



11.

Darrius Heyward-Bey(Oak - WR)



12.

Coby Fleener(Ind - TE)


Only person i would have considered taking is Heyward-Bey but i felt good about my receivers. There is a lot of chopped liver in those picks. I wanted Dalton but he didn't fall to me.

Default Re: The 2012 "Rate My Draft" Thread

I would've taken a flyer on DHB in that draft, over a DST possibly Freeman as well if I felt like taking a chance. Either way the amount of DST units that are usually left over in FA and how little separation there is between their outputs means you can get away with slamming it if you aren't able to snag a hot one off the wire.

This hasn't been my experience at all. In a 16 round draft, picks 9-16 are pretty much a crapshoot IMO. The way to build a roster that'll make it to the playoffs is to minimize risk.

I think there's a lot less risk involved in taking a proven DST. Otherwise you're stuck a bum WR3 or RB3 and pray that they get the ball. Since that hardly ever happens, then you have to pray even harder that the guy in front of them goes out for the season.

Not to mention I've yet to participate in a league where every owner doesn't draft for DST.

I don't really know. I hate it, in reality. The team with Aaron Rodgers got screwed because autodraft chose 2 backup QBs for him. He'll now have to trade or drop them, and both of those guys are valuable

Well, that does tell me that your league has a very deep waiver wire, and that bye weeks could kill a team. If I was in your league, I would strategize to get my best players all on the same bye week and just take the loss. Then start everyone the other 15 weeks and blow everyone away. Use those two bench spots sparingly, but try to pick up good players when they have a big game.

Edit:
So Week 7 is the week that 6 teams are on bye this year. They are: Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Philadelphia, San Diego

In an auction league, I would plan out this sort of roster based on those team's fantasy values. A lineup could be something like this:

QB: Peyton, Matt Ryan or Rivers
RB: McCoy (Must have), Turner, Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis, Reggie Bush (if PPR), McGahee
WR: Julio Jones (must have), Roddy White, Dwayne Bowe, Maclin, Djax, Michael Floyd, Davone Bess, some Denver WR nobody cares about
TE: Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez or Celek
K: Take your pick, but I would go with Prater out of this bunch.
DST: Take your pick, I would go with KC or Philly

Starting a full team built around week 7 would annihilate everyone else who will be resting a starter each week. I used this strategy for a draft last year, and it worked out really well for me. Went 11-3 in the regular season and won the playoffs by a hefty margin too.

Try a 14-team, 16-man roster (10 starting, 6 bench) where bonuses will decimate your opponent (plays >20 yds, plays >40, TDs 50-69yds, TDs >70yds, passing >300, passing >400, passing >450, passing >500, rushing >100, rushing >150, rushing >200, rushing >250, receiving >100, receiving >150, receiving >200, receiving >250)

QB
Flex (QB/RB/WR/TE)
RB
RB
WR
WR
WR
TE
K
DST
Bench

IR (can only be used is someone is ruled "Out" of a game)

This is a rough league where after 4 rounds, you're really looking at low-end #2s and high-end #3s, or fliers

If anyone's interested in how this draft played out, I'll post it once we're done (takes about a week, we don't do auto-draft because we usually have 2 or 3 people overseas at any given time). I can also give the bonus details, if there's interest in how this particular league is setup
