    Just looking at the first 5-6 rounds, I think the best drafts were the guys with the bottom 3 picks:
    10 Michael Vick, Phi QB TDs and Beer
    11 LeSean McCoy, Phi RB Big Ben Ruthlessbeaters
    12 Drew Brees, NO QB Consistently Inconsistents

    They seemed to get low risk guys that are sure to produce. I feel bad for that Connell guy, as he will probably have a terrible year given his picks. He took just about every guy that is being overdrafted due to past performances. Blount, Vjax, CJ1K, Plax, Nicks, Orton, all guys who I think are risky at best.

    Your team looks pretty good, but personally I'm avoiding the Cardinals WRs and Kolb. I have Beanie Wells in one of my leagues, but he's a 3rd or 4th RB. I don't trust that team at all, they are on my FF blacklist along with the Titans, Broncos, Raiders, Jags, Colts, Bengals, 49ers, Vikings (except AP), Browns and Bucs. All teams that I expect to do poorly this season and don't want to take a risk on until after week 1.

    I think Sam Bradford was a good pick, and I expect him to throw for 4000+ yards this season. After seeing what Josh McDaniels did with Kyle Freaking Orton in one year, I believe a guy like Bradford will turn into a beast this year. They got him some new weapons to work with, which spreads out the fantasy load on the receiving end, but I like him a lot for a QB. Your TE's are a bit off, but watch for the week 1 stars and see if you can find a guy that will be grabbing. I'm not a fan of Greg Olsen this year, or any of the past years, but he has Shockey in Carolina to compete with him for targets.

    I'd say you came out of the draft with a better team than most of these guys. Good luck this year!

    I feel OK with Fitz due to the fact that he had over 1100 yards and 6 touchdowns with Derek Anderson and John Skelton as his QB's. I think Kolb is an NFL starter and with Fitz could hook up for 1300 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    I feel really set at RB with Rice, Jackson, Felix, and Greene. I think that any combo would put up good numbers each week depending on matchups, and that is the strength of my team. If Tate ends up starting as well I might move one of them if needed.

    As far as Olsen, I wasnt going to reach in the 5th round for an Owen Daniels, or Dallas Clark. I expect to get as much out of Olsen as I would any other random scoring TE. But I think Cam Newton will rely on Olsen as his safety valve alot.

    I hope you are right about Bradford as he could vault me into victory each week.

    FYI on Bradford. Tonight against the Chiefs, he went 9/16 for 95 yards and 2 TDs and 1 INT. Not bad, but he also had 2 rushing attempts for 18 yards, which is kinda cool. One of those TDs was to their new TE Lance Kendricks, who may also be a fantasy sleeper. He's 6-3 240 pounds and from Wisconsin, just like our good friend OD. Just something to keep an eye on...

    How many teams? PPR? Obviously I love Foster in any formats. Not a big fan of Colston, but Pettigrew should be a major target again this year.

    PPR league with 14 teams. We typically do 12 but things went haywire, we are going to back to 12 next year. We cut two bench spots to keep the waiver pool the same.

    I am not real impressed with my draft.

    So this league is a little different than the standard league. We play a very limited offense with no flex players. This league is also heavy on defense. Sacks are worth 2 pts and INTs are worth 4. FF and FR are both worth 2. What do y’all think? I’m a little worried about RB2 and RB3 and WR3, and if Lloyd can repeat without McDaniels. 10 teams, I had the 6th pick and took AJ first and then Rivers.

    QB- Phillip Rivers
    WR – Andre Johnson
    WR – Dwayne Bowe
    WR – Brandon Lloyd
    RB – Stephen Jackson
    RB – Ryan Matthews
    TE – Jason Witten
    BN – Lance Moore
    BN – Joe Flacco
    BN – Daniel Thomas
    BN – Zach Miller
    BN – AJ Green

    K – Sebastian Janikowski

    DEF – San Diego
    D – DeMarcus Ware
    DB – Asante Samuel
    DL – James Hall
    LB – James Harrison
    BN – Tamba Hali
    BN – Aqib Talib
    BN – Von Miller

    I like it for a 14 team league.

    Your top 3 RB's are beasts in ppr leagues. Bush and Spiller are also intriguing, could be busts or top 20 RB's imo.

    WR is a little weak but Jackson has an extremely high ceiling and if Colston stays healthy he could be a steal. Jordy Nelson is a guy I really wanted to get in my ppr league, he might end up earning a starting role for ya. Branch is a guy I wouldn't have picked but might still have some value.

    Flacco is kinda "meh" for me but he should at least be a decent starter for you. Not so sure about Hasselbeck...

    Hard for me to comment on this, I've never played in an IDP league but I'll tell ya what I think of the offense.

    Rivers = beast
    I had him in my money league last year and he was money week in and week out. I managed to get him in the third round this year but can't argue with taking him in the second.

    AJ you obviously know what your getting but Bowe and Lloyd both worry me a little bit. Bowe lost his OC from last season as well and I have my concerns that he is going to take a big drop in stats this season. But at the same time the guy scored 15 freaking TD's last year so it's hard to hate on him too much. Lloyd doesn't worry me quite as much because of where he's being drafted. I think he is a great #3WR and borderline #2.

    You need to be looking for a RB on the waiver wire because the guys you have now I don't think are going to get it done for you this year. I like to stockpile RB's and I would be scared as hell going into the season with just 3 backs. Especially when two of those guys have never produced anything in the NFL.

    Witten is always good and I think if you can find another RB to pair with Jackson, you should have a good team.

    This seems like a very high risk high reward team. I could really see this team winning it all or coming in last, but if your guys stay healthy and take the next step that most of them are projected to make then your going to have a good squad. My notes in bold.

    I grabbed Tate in two my leagues. I can't fit Ward on my bench, but I really think Tate will be the #1 if Arian is out for any games. I can use him as my flex and hope he does well if he gets the start. Anyone think Ward is the better pickup as a handcuff?

    I just completed my first auction draft and I got shafted I think. Part of the problem was I missed the first half and my autobid didn't win on anyone...

    Heres my team (12 team league)
    QB Matt Ryan - $15 (ESPN average $11)
    RB Ahmad Bradshaw - $23 (ESPN average $20)
    RB LeGarrette Blount - $24 (ESPN average $22)
    RB/WR DeSean Jackson - $17 (ESPN average $23)
    WR Roddy White - $45 (ESPN average $41)
    WR Reggie Wayne - $26 (ESPN average $23)
    TE Jermichael Finley - $16 (ESPN average $12)
    D/ST Steelers D/ST -$6 (ESPN average $7)
    K Stephen Gostkowski - $1 (ESPN average $2)
    BE Percy Harvin - $13 (ESPN average $11)
    BE Joseph Addai - $8 (ESPN average $6)
    BE Ryan Grant - $5 (ESPN average $12)

    So out of $200 I spent $199
    The "average value" of my team was $190

    That extra $10 I could have used to upgrade someone a lot, for example making a $25 guy a $35 guy (Blount to SJax/Gore/Turner).

    I made 2 big mistakes
    1) The auto bidder sucks. Once I got into the draft, the big name guys were gone. My auto-bidder didn't bid on these because they went for too much money based on ESPN valuations. The problem with ESPN averages is that they didn't take into account the fact that our league used a small bench

    2) Going with the "average" player. I have a team full of middle of the round guys, no real stars, and no real weaknesses. One guy in my league has P Rivers, Chris Johnson, and adrian peterson, and then a bunch of low money guys. That style looks to work much better...

    What do yall think?

    ^ Team 8 sucks... lol, autodraft!

    I like the team that got JC and Foster. Those are my top two RBs for this year, followed by Ray Rice.

    Yeah, I think so too. Good RBs, solid QB play, decent everywhere else


    Do you think I'll be competitive?

    I think so. As long as Manning comes back 100% eventually for Wayne's sake. I think Bradshaw could have a good season. White and Finley should be beasts for you.
