  1. How quickly things change. Not too long ago, L. Robinson was an injury plagued do little fourth tier WR and now he is reasonable for Dez Bryant valu jumping up!
  2. That's Eubanks
  3. What a difference a year makes. Last year no free agency and it seemed like forever till the draft. Free agency is going to be awesome all month.
  4. If true, is this driven by Shannahan, Allen, both of them, or all Sntder?
  5. Distance from Springfield to Columbia mmo 186 miles Distance from Springfield to Fayetteville 118 miles Arkansas campus closer to home by about an hour
  6. Enjoyed the season, but am reminded of golf, drive for show and putt for dough. Congrats PC and good luck on the finals.

  8. I totally agree with both sides of this statement. I have waited on RB more than a time or two and not had success. However, the concern for the hit that you take at WR, TE, and QB always wins my internal arguaments and I wind up doing it again. This year, I am still getting comments about the weakness of my RB squad EVEN THOUGH I went with a slightly early RB 1 pick and selected five guys that I thought all were capable of being involved. I agree with the critique that several have had folks drafted to replace the ones I drafted, but I think that Moreno and P. Thomas have the skills to stay involved in a RBBC role and keep me afloat. There are just so many RB injuries that taking four, particularly two studs and two wishful thought types seems like a really bad strategy. To me, it all comes down to the fact that we have 14 owners that are all qualified, we have only 18 slots so you have to make desisions on where to skimp, we have 2 point ppr TE scoring so you can't ignore them, and you just have to pick your poison. Personally I think going with one PK is the risk that several adopted this year after reviewing past results. The fact that several did this actually does reduce the exposure. But, with 18 man rosters, each team is exposed and the key is no wasted picks and dodging the injury bullet.
  9. surprised that McNabb was not taken.
  10. Team rzrback77 final team report 2.05 Aaron Rodgers 8 QB2 GB 18.5 Cam Newton 9 QB29 CAR Grabbed a top QB early and then waited till the final pick to back him up. With this summer's lock-out I am not as confident that a few rookie QBs will perform well, but I really like Newton's mentality and athleticism to aid in his being able to work out for the Panthers. I think that he will definitely be playing before week 8 and could possibly put up some scoring weeks over ROdgers. I think that he is worth the late pick and that is was not foolish to wait this long to back up Rodgers. I actually had a couple of guys that were considered, so I hope that I picked wisely. I think that with 14 teams and only 18 rounds it is almost impossible to draft sufficient QBs to block teams out. 4.05 Ryan Matthews 6 RB17 SD 5.10 Knowshon Moreno 6 RB24 DEN 10.5 Chris Wells 6 RB36 ARZ 12.5 Pierre Thomas 11 RB47 NO 13.10 Michael Bush 8 RB50 Oak?? I have had issues with carrying only 4 RBs so I went into the draft planning on taking five. I am really pleased with the potential depth that I garnered even after waiting till round 4 to take my first one. I am satisfied with this group of five RBs and hope that they do well at the brother-in-law plan to get me some solid scores from my two RBs. Week 6 is a problem area for the RBs as my top three selections are all of that week. 1.10 Calvin Johnson 9 WR3 DET 3.10 Brandon Marshall 5 WR14 MIA 6.05 Michael Crabtree 7 WR29 SF 8.05 Jacoby Ford 8 WR40 OAK 14.5 Kevin Walter 11 WR72 HOU 15.10 Jerricho Cotchery 8 WR77 NYJ I think that my first three WRs are awesome in ppr leagues. I hope that Jocoby Ford continues his second half of the season. I think that Walter and Cotchery were outstanding value picks where taken. Not sure what role Cotchery will have, but one of Edwards or Holmes could be gone and he could be the second WR for the Jets. 7.10 Dustin Keller 8 TE13 NYJ 9.10 Jermaine Gresham 7 TE17 CIN Rather weak at TE and probably rank my team among the lower tiers here. However, each of these guys are very athletic and hopefully will come up with some nice scores here and there. 16.5 Dan Carpenter 5 PK10 MIA Only one kicker is not good, but I felt the depth was necessary at RB and WR and this is where I picked my poison. Really hope that Miami offense improves minimally and gets Carpenter into FG range often. 11.10 Green Bay 8 DST2 17.10 St. Louis Rams 5 DST22 Love my DST Tandem. Enjoyed the draft greatly and look forward to some additional trash talk and critiques in this thread over the next couple of weeks while we wait for the lock-out to be lifted. Overall, week 8 is a bye week problem as I am missing my top QB, an RB, two WRs, a TE, and one DST so I am playing with a roster of only 12 that week. Please feel free to critique my team and let me know where you would have changed what was done.
  11. I'll offer on fool's opinion. We go only 18 rounds in these drafts and I have had a history of being burned at RB because of injuries. I definitely planned to use 5 of the 18 spots on RBs this year. With ppr scoring and 3 mandated WRs, you just about have to carry 6 at that spot and probably need seven. If you go 5 RB and 6 WR, that leaves only 7 roster spots for four positions. With 2 ppr for TEs, anything less than two is crazy. Now, we are down to five. Probably the best option then would be 2 QB, 2 DST, and 1 PK. If you go 7 at WR, then you either have to go only 4 RB or go solo at DST, TE, or QB. Depth is just not something that is automatic at all positions. Going Rodgers early allowed me the luxury of waiting for #2. There are still a few that I am ok with taking, if I decide to back up Rodgers.
  12. Team rzrback77 update through round 13 2.05 Aaron Rodgers 8 QB2 GB 4.05 Ryan Matthews 6 RB17 SD 5.10 Knowshon Moreno 6 RB24 DEN 10.5 Chris Wells 6 RB36 ARZ 12.5 Pierre Thomas 11 RB47 NO 13.10 Michael Bush 8 RB50 Oak?? 1.10 Calvin Johnson 9 WR3 DET 3.10 Brandon Marshall 5 WR14 MIA 6.05 Michael Crabtree 7 WR29 SF 8.05 Jacoby Ford 8 WR40 OAK 7.10 Dustin Keller 8 TE13 NYJ 9.10 Jermaine Gresham 7 TE17 CIN 11.10 Green Bay 8 DST2 Can't recall ever taking 5 RBs before taking my fifth WR, but really like Michael Bush that late in the draft. I am very confident that this team will outperform my 2010 edition. Please do not research how my team did a year ago.
  13. you had to play catchup at RB.....and you better hope Matthews outperforms a 4.5 pick....there is probably a reason he fell there...some indication Moreno might not be the man either...weren't both the 12th pick of the draft...?....they need to show up....but talk in DEN is about bringing in someone that prevents Moreno from being a primary....not a solid #2...other 2 are guys who have had impact rooks drafted to compete....like QB and WR....wonder what you could have done at RB instead of Marshall and then got at WR in the 4th...I'll take a look...eta: looking back, really no real better directions to go, although knowing Lynch and Jackson would last so long might have been nice...could have maybe passed on Moreno and upgraded elsewhere....and then snagged one of them as they may very well outproduce Moreno....Thanks for the stinkin comments. Have to share a short story, we are entertaining our fice year old grtandaughter for eight days (now on day day 5) and I was playing a My Little Kitty Concentration game with her last night and needless to say there were lots of varieties of kitties and I was having trouble seeing the differences. Turned one over and said "Another stinkin kitty!". Well, I probably added an unnecessary word to her vocabulary as the rest of the game was filled with stinkin comments followed by loads of laughter. Yes, she won.Anyway, I totally agree with your assessment and I seem to fall into the same trap with some survivors. IMO, there are a lot more potential late RBs that can fill the two scoring positions, especially with ppr rules and the need for three scores from WR. If I had been in the top six or so, I would have definitely begun with a likely stud RB. Picking lower, it is harder to ignore the value at WR that I see in those 10-14 draftiong slots. With the exception of Wells, though I grabbed guys that typically are effective receivers. Maybe Reggie Bush will leave the Saints and Pierre will be the combo to Ingram.

With Jacoby Ford, he likely will not score consistently, but when he does it could be huge. I really like him as a best ball WR because you get credit for all of the boom weeks. Picks becoming more difficult to make at this point in the draft,
