Thought I would post one to start conversation today.....  Pretty happy with this one




QB - R. Griffin, R. Tanehill



RB - AP, Gio, A. Ellington, J. Hill, R. Helu, I. Crowell


WR - M. Crabtree, M. Wallace, J. Maclin, H. Nicks, J. Hunter, A. Dobson, O. Beckham



TE - Whitten, Ertz, Ausberry



K - Novak



Def - CAR







I recognized your team. I was in the same draft. I think this was a more interesting draft than usual. The 7 spot, right after you, took 4 WR's with his 1st 4 picks. The 2 spot, just before me, took 3 TE's in the 1st 5 rounds.

What would you have done if Ellington wasn't there in the 3rd? I was going back and forth between him, Lynch & Andre Johnson. I ended up with Johnson. I'm OK with that, but I could easily see changing it if I could go back in time.

I'm a little lukewarm on your WR's, but I'm not a big Crabtree fan anyway. Welker, Keenan Allen & Roddy White going in 3 of the 4 picks just before you in the 4th surprised me. I thought one of them would have dropped to you. All together a very strong team and a favorite.

Too bad you took Hill in the 10th. If he came to me I would have gladly put off my QB pick another round.

Anyway. GL See you in week 2.

Had the #1 week in the 1st week of drafting. My team as follows:


QB: Peyton (3)

RB: McCoy (1); Woodhead (6); McFadden (7); Jon Stewart (11)

WR: Cobb (2); Roddy White (4); Percy Harvin (5); Amendola (9); Streater (12); Britt (17); Miles Austin (18)

TE: Martellus Bennett (8); Ebron (10); Sefarian-Jenkins (13); Finley (16); Quarles (20)

DEF: NE (14); Chi (15)

PK: Blair Walsh (19)


Thoughts? I know, RB depth is the issue .... and hoping one out of Ebron/Sefarian/Finley pans out as a solid starter at TE to add depth/bye week fill etc :)

Peyton. Not much to say, but I probably would draft a BU this early. Injuries happen.

Hopefully Woodhead has a start like he did last year. McFadden has been kinda brittle, but might be OK with MJD shouldering most of the load. Yes, this is the 1st area I'd look to shore up via WW. Taking Peyton and 3 WR's before your 2nd RB made things a little tough for you.

If Harvin and/or Amendola stay healthy, your WR's will be a strength and fill your flex spots.

I like Bennett. The others look like pick and pray and you never know, but I would prefer a more solid BU (maybe Ebron is that guy) and then 1 or 2 more speculative picks.


JMO - Maybe taking a RB in the 5th and a WR in the 6th would have given you a better result.

OK, rip it up. 8th spot.


Cam Newton, Eli Manning

Cam’s bye is week 12. Eli plays Dallas that week, otherwise, not a fan.


Eddie Lacy, Joique Bell, Jeremy Hill, Stevan Ridley, Andre Brown, Lache Seastrunk


Antonio Brown, Kendall Wright, Dwayne Bowe, James Jones, Andrew Hawkins, Donnie Avery

Lacy in 1st, Brown in 2nd. As it turned out, I could have gone with Dez and then Murray. I think I would have liked that more, but I’m OK with this.


Jordan Cameron, Jordan Reed, Marcedes Lewis

Cameron in the 3rd which is where he’s gone in just about every draft I’ve seen.


Shayne Graham, Steven Hauschka, BAL Team Defense

In early drafts I usually take 2 K’s. Graham gets dropped after Hauschka’s week 4 bye

In Topic: 1.01 pick in redraft PPRs

Don't pay for last season, go with Adrian Peterson. He'll catch more passes than he's ever seen with Norv Turner calling plays.
Can't go wrong with Calivn, either; although I prefer Peterson slightly.
McCoy will probably catch fewer passes with the addition of Sproles - a big deal in PPR formats.
You could find a few of reasons to avoid Charles - offensive line gets significantly worse, work load likely decreases. High risk.
Graham at 1.01 has too much audacity. Foolish. Trade back if you want him.
Take Manning in the second.

You really think Manning is going to be available in the 2nd?  He's not going to last past the 1st 10 picks in any draft this year.


I just went by ADP data available from MFL, which has Manning as a late 2nd round pick, even behind Rodgers. I haven't done any drafts yet so I can't provide any anecdotes from experience.


FWIW - thought I'd share

I've done 6 drafts so far. All with FFPC scoring, 2 redrafts, 4 DE. Manning has gone 1.10 once, 3rd round twice, late 2nd 3 times.

In my last draft I had 1.1 and took Charles. At the end of the season, I think I'd be happy with him, McCoy, Forte or AP.

Graham has gone as high as 1.2 and as late as 1.6. Of course these are 1.5 ppr for TE leagues.

IIRC Calvin has gone 1.4 - 1.6. Pretty tight window.
