  1. You may want to go back and revisit Finland's role in WW2.
  2. 7.09 Dak Prescott, QB19 8.08 Nick Foles, QB27 Missed on Brady by 1 pick. Settled on Dak – He’s been QB13, 10 and 10 the last 3 years. Has some poor games but Cooper seemed to help and was also able to put up 2 40+ point games with him. Good best ball QB. 8th round seems way too early for Foles but he should have a starting job somewhere and was the last QB I felt ok with and felt forced to go QB. I still haven’t figured out the QB runs in these leagues – either picking too early or scrapping the bottom of the QB2 barrel. WSL2 still had Jackson, Dalton, Darnold, Carr, and Mariota left at 8.08. Need Foles to start and keep starting job next year, otherwise I’m doomed with one of Dak’s 10 point games. 3.09 Philip Lindsay, RB19 5.09 Kenyan Drake, RB27 10.08 Nyheim Hines, RB42 12.08 CJ Anderson, RB55 20.08 Elijah Holyfield-rookie, RB78 Not thrilled with the group – no true stud and a lot of unknowns. Just missed out on Kerryon, Jones and Fournette in the 3rd. My gut says Lindsay is a bit of a value pick because he just looks like he has “it”. If he keeps going as RB19, I’ll have a lot of shares next year. Hopefully, Denver bails on the Booker experiment and Lindsay can improve on his 35 catches. What role will Drake have with new regime? I’m assuming the very least he keeps his passing role with the upside of his 2017 usage. Other option was McKinnon. Even with Mack, Hines should still have a role – he caught 63 passes last year. CJA seemed like a good gamble. With his strong showing at the end of the year, someone should give him a chance. Why not gamble on a rookie in the 20th? And the last couple Georgia RBs have looked pretty darn good in the NFL. 2.08 Odell Beckham, WR9 4.08 Cooper Kupp, WR23 6.08 Chris Godwin, WR36 9.09 Robert Foster, WR52 11.09 Tyrell Williams, WR65 16.08 Deion Cain, WR81 18.08 Kelvin Harmon-rookie, WR88 Really like this group. Not sure where OBJ will be but he’s elite. Kupp was top 5 before he was injured. Not expecting that but he does seem to be a huge cog in the LAR offense. Some worry about how an ACL recovery impacts his speed/cuts early next year. Other options were RBs Cohen, Guice and Freeman. The next 3 – Godwin, Foster and TyWilliams are all targets for me this year. I think DJax is gone, giving Godwin huge upside in that Arians offense. Down side was that Godwin pick cost me better QBs. Foster had something clicking with Allen. TyWilliams should leave and seek a WR1 role next year. He posted 70-1000-7 season when Allen was hurt, so the talent is there. Downside was Williams cost me Goedert. Other options were Dixon – whom I passed on, thinking I could get RB Richard on the way back but Ruds sniped him. Anyway, Williams is going to look like a complete steal at this price in the summer. Cain was turning heads in training camp and Indy craves for a WR2 – good chance they draft someone though. Harmon is an NFL ready WR and should contribute a few weeks. 1.09 Zach Ertz, TE2 19.09 Irv Smith-rookie, TE36 Ertz is a stud and only had 3 games below 14 points. Other options were Bell and Hopkins - but the top TEs last year gave such a huge advantage. With such a big investment, I knew I was going to slough TE2 but didn’t plan until the 19th. Was targeting Eifert or Goedert but waited too long. Missed Goedert by 3 picks – still stings. Usually rookie TEs are a waste but several were suitable last year and Smith should get an opportunity – good blocker route running. Other options were Vernon Davis and Jake Butt, who both went soon after my Smith pick. 13.09 Ka’imi Faribarin, K5 14.08 Aldrick Rosas, K13 15.09 LA Chargers, DST8 17.09 Atlanta Falcons, DST22 2 good kickers with jobs and plenty of opportunities. Caveat – regret taking Rosas but I thought one of Hyde, Crowell and Peterson would be there for round 15 and wanted to get another reliable PK before the run. Damn Bass taking both Hyde and Crowell. 2 defenses that underperformed last year but I expect will rebound. Both have high score potential each week. Overall, I need my WR/TE to carry me and RBs to have the opportunities I need. The need to balance out the weeks my QBs aren’t up to snuff. I normally don’t draft a lot of rookies. But since there doesn’t seem to be any clear cut choices, it only required some minor draft capital in rounds 18-20. There were vets I could have gone with but they are who they are…and they’re not winning any leagues for me. Have made it to final 3 without winning more times than I’d like. Thought I’d try the rookie route and hope to hit.
  3. Talked myself out of Dixon last round. What are the thoughts on him? Do they still like him...or Edwards....or try to sign someone else? Was looking at Dixon again and Richard for this round....I had to throw another dart at CJA and hopes he signs somewhere with opportunity.
  4. Foster seems like a 11+ round guy. But y'all keep taking players I want so I'm just trying to get as many of "my" guys as I can now. Is there really that much difference in guys in the 9th or 13th round?
  5. Regarding Ryan -- anyone else concerned this is a repeat of his career year in 2016 and then tanked in 2017...when a change in OC happened?
  6. I agree. I think Lockett is over-valued this year due to the TDs and Baldwin injury last year. I still prefer Baldwin over Lockett....but honestly, I don't want either of them in redraft.
  7. I think the new regime and QB are positives. Hopefully their little infatuation with Booker is over and stealing the OL Coach Munchak from Pitt should be an upgrade. Mack was my other consideration.

  9. I stand corrected. I looked at the rules but didn't scroll further down when it was "amended" to 4 teams. I'll delete the immunity notes but it didn't have any bearing on this week's results.
  10. Took some searching but it's under Starting Lineups Setup. I turned it off but not sure how to re-instate jeter and rudy's scores.
  11. I agree it would be better to skip picks instead of having the site make it for you...but we've been in the situation where someone disappears and they start missing 2,3,4 picks and it becomes an issue. So it is what it is for this draft. I don't think you should go back and change your picks because it could end up affecting who others pick after you. Ginn was on my short list but since he was gone, I went with someone else. Not saying I would have definitely drafted Ginn but your change could cause a chain reaction, which could just make things messier. It's late in the draft, a free MB draft as it is, and I suggest let's just roll with the outcomes. I did with AP. So should others.
  12. Wish I would have seen this. Woke up around 8am and checked the site and saw AP picked for me. By the time I figured out what happened, 10 more picks went off the board. So it's just easier to keep AP. Wrong person, right team...would have picked Thompson.
