I think I did a good job with my draft this year. Executed my plan how I wanted, but was a little surprised at some early picks by the other dudes in my league. Sort of a run on RBs in the late 2nd and 3rd round so I had to adjust. Here's my team (12 team league, 10th pick). Ahmad Bradshaw got taken right before me in the 5th round so I went with B. Lloyd. I would be in love with this team if I could have got Bradshaw.

QBs- Stafford and Bradford.
WRs- Andre Johnson, Vincent Jackson, Brandon Lloyd, Julio Jones, Jacoby Ford
RBs- Darren McFadden, Felix Jones, Brandon Jacobs, Rashad Jennings, Jerome Harrison
TE- Jermichael Finley
D/ST- Giants
K- Henerey from the Eagles.

What do y'all think?

Like I said, I want a good qb this year. I got #+$#%$ because of that last year, but otherwise I like the squad.

I adopted the theory two years ago that having an elite QB doesn't mean #%#%. I made it to the semis and had the best team in the league last year with David Garrad as my starter.
. By drafting a QB early I think you give up too much value. I'd rather be stacked at 4 or 5 positions between RB/WR/Flex then have a QB who will get me 2 or 3 more points than an average QB. We'll see how it works this year. 
I was shook this year though. Vick fell to me and Andre Johnson was still available. I didn't know what to do. In all the mocks I did to prepare this scenario never happened. So I stuck with my original plan. 

Fecta- That's a pretty damn solid squad. You need more RB depth though.

LMAO so true. I think I was just blinded by being a niners fan and Pat Willis getting 100 plus tackles lol. I will be making some moves via free agency and trades. 
This is one thing you don't want to do while you're playing fantasy football:  DO NOT BE A HOMER!
I think im about to be offered Kolb for Mcnabb. Leaning towards taking this trade.

How the hell did you manage to get Tom Brady, Andre Johnson, and Jamaal Charles on the same team? You playing with dudes who don't watch football?

Similar draft strategy to mine except I have Ryan in the mix for a possible QB and after today, Jimmy Graham as a backup TE to Finley.

I think you're looking really solid. Obviously Stafford needs to stay relatively healthy, but do you plan on rotating defenses? The Giants have suffered a ton of injuries. I can't
imagine you're sticking with them for the season. Do I sense homerism? Although, I did plan on selecting Oakland's defense...so I guess I'm one to talk.

Question for you, what were your first 3-4 picks? I'm guessing you went with Andre 1st, Mcfadden 2nd, then Stafford or Finley?

Yeah I had a couple of idiots who reached big time in my league.  One guy drafted Benjarvus Ellis-Green first round and Ryan Grant second. 


I'd gladly take their money though.  


Any weaknesses or what not?!

I <3 IDP. This is why I asked earlier.

I'd like to start a IDP league (yahoo) to show another dimension of FF. I happened to join a public league 4 years ago just to see what it's about and I'm still there; it's the most fun I have, as far as fantasy sports go.

And, if you happen to to have a bad offensive draft, a good defensive line up can cover up faults


If anyone's interested in joining just for the experience, shoot me PM/reply here and I'll create a league.


Addict4Sneakers - That's a pretty solid lineup for 17th.

You got my first two picks right. I took Andre in the first round (10 overall) and got McFadden in the second at 15, then on the next pass I went with Vincent Jackson in the third (34th), and got Felix Jones in the fourth round (39). I actually got Finley in the 5th round (58). Ahmad Bradshaw was taken right before that pick. 
My goal was to maximize value for each pick. I wanted to have 1 elite RB and 1 elite WR after the first two rounds and then go RB, RB, in rounds 3 and 4 to pick up someone like LaGarret Blount, Felix Jones, Mark Ingram or Matt Forte, but there was a run on RBs and VJax fell to me. So I drafted him and was able to pick up Felix Jones in the fourth, which actually worked out perfect.  

As for QBs, I didn't draft Stafford until the 8th round at pick 87 and I got Bradford in the 10th round at pick 111. 

I think I was extremely lucky to get DMC, VJax, and hell even Andre Johnson where I did. I would prefer my flex to be a RB play, but Brandon Lloyd was the best fantasy WR last season and I got him in the 6th round. I think he is being way overlooked. In the third round I was 4 picks away from getting Hakeem Nicks. That would have been a robbery. Needless to say, I can't wait for the season to start.

In a ten team league with the #2 pick? That's legitimate, actually.

Nice work altogether. I'm hoping to duplicate something similar come tomorrow. Passing TD are only worth 4 points in my 14 team league. So the idea of maximizing value early is beyond critical.

I predict an injury for some reason that would limit his carries and night even make him miss a number of games. He's a beast tho.
