I will certainly give it a try. Never tried to do it before so it may take some time before I figure it out. Not the most computer savvy.

My pick. I was looking at ADP, JOhnson or Rice who had at least 1 available or more in each of the other drafts.

I worry about one year wonders like Foster, think Charles is overrated, McCoy is okay but not an elite talent. MJD would have been okay but I worry about his team.

So I went the safe route and go early on Andre. There was a reason I would have rather picked later. Oh well. It is done and I can be criticized for going the earliest on a player by far. Even though if I did this in draft 1, I think you would have seen a domino effect.

I don't fault your reasoning, just assumed everyone would go RB early and AJ would fall to me. He's easily the top WR on my board and you should get decent RBs later. McCoy IMO has as good a chance as anyone to be the top RB this year. Risk is there but I'll take it at the 9.

Was hoping that one of the big 4 TEs or Fitz/Hillis would be there at 2.11. I think one of them fell to the 3rd rd in every other league. Selected Manning based on lack of better options. Any WR/RB I was looking at there would either be available at my next pick or there will be equivalent choices available in round 3. Kind of bummed about that pick as I wanted to try a different strategy.

I gave serious thought to Peyton but decided on Fitz just because I lost in the end last year in one of the survivor leagues largely because my WRs sucked. Also considered Finley but opted to go with less risk this round - which is why Peyton was a strong consideration.

Nice QB run, Crippler got himself a steal with Brees at the (presumed) end of the run.

Yeah it was Brees or move elsewhere at that spot ... elsewhere being Forte, who I like to continue to play well in Martz offense.

For having a down year, Fitz's season ending stats surprised me.

I don't know that I'd call it a steal when they were all bunched together like that but I see what you are getting at and it's why I hated taking Rivers. Basically I put Vick on his own planet, followed by Rodgers. IMO those two exist in a different zone than everyone else. After that I find myself basically splitting hairs between Rivers, Brees, Manning and another QB I won't mention since he's not been picked. I was actually comforted by the QB run after Rivers as to me it mitigated the value of a team getting a QB I rate similar to Rivers at a much lower spot. Except of course for the team that takes the QB I'm not mentioning. All in all not a fan of taking Rivers or any of the above mentioned QB's in the second round. Had hoped Fitz or Nicks would make it to me in the second but had a hard time believing it would happen but allowed myself to get excited when Fitz was 2 spots away. Biggest bummer was I had Finley as my backup plan and sort of assumed I could get him so it hurt to see him go right after Fitz and both right before me. I have a plan for what I'm going to do in the third which left me without what I viewed as a better alternative than grabbing Rivers.

Unfortunately we were thinking along the same lines. I too was hoping for Fitz/Finley. Needed Turner/Forte to go and the QB run to start earlier for that to happen. Glad you took Rivers because I took him at 2.16 in WSL1 and wanted to diversify. I think we'll have comparable WR/RB talent available to draft in rd 3.

First post in the discussion thread updated to show teams and the picks they made so far.

Thanks for doing that Labor of Love. I've done it and found that cut and paste works dandy. If the spirit moves you please consider adding player position information (RB-X, etc.). It makes for a good comparision with the other Leagues as "most" Leagues laydown that information.I've alwasy been amazed that there's no guide book as to how to runs these things (as evidenced by the start up round #1 here). It's not the first time that type fiasco has occurred but it should be the last. An owner's manual for those running these deals would avoid the same situation(s) occuring over and over again with an expectaition for a different outcome. It would also allow for standard reporting as a standard format would be spelled out. Just a suggestion as I'd be willing to assist in developing same. :tumbleweed: Back to the draft:2.10 MenoBrown - Phillip Rivers QB SDC2.11 BassNBrew - Peyton Manning QB IND2.12 Old Milwaukee - Tom Brady QB NE2.13 Crippler - Drew Brees QB NOThat pretty much does it for the decision to forgo a top QB early. Same for TE's as the top four are off the board way early.Is there a trend developing here?

And way early on another guy again. Why I hated the top of the order. I would have been better off in the middle for what I have done.

But I see dropoffs big time at each position. QB was the top 5(I dont include Vick. I would not touch him) and than a drop fantasy wise(despite what one guy says and I know who he is after). So I got one of the big ones

WR was the same for me with a couple of guys really standing out. Would have like Calvin almost as much.

TE was the big 5 and than I see a drop off again. The next guy in the other drafts I would not touch and the others are not studs. So on to Davis way earlier than any other draft again. Even though I really wanted Finley also.

Well I miscalculated again. Wanted VJax at 3.5 and he vanished. Shifted gears and grabbed Williams before the back half of the serpent started goobling up RBs.

I don't know if you're referring to me but there isn'tmuch of a drop from Brees/Peyton/Brady to Romo. My opinion of course, but Romo could easily be on top of that tier but will probably stay below the Rodgers/Vick tier if everyone is healthy.

I might kick myself for not taking Welker if one of the next two QBs fall and a WR I like doesn't, but them's the breaks.

I would have been happy to take Romo if you taken Welker.

Funny how that works.With Ben gone now, I'm happier with the selection. There are a couple QBs left I like enough if forced to take one, but IMO Ben is the true end of this tier.

I thought maybe he was referring to me when I posted earlier about the QB run and mentioned one guy who I put in the same class as that group but would not mention him since he had not been picked. That player is Romo. After Vick and Rodgers I can see me flip flopping my rankings between Rivers, Peyton, Brees, Romo, and Brady but right now the way I just listed them is the order I have them with there being not much of a difference between the any of them.

So I'd have to feel that Romo is good value and me leading the run by taking Rivers is not ideal for me but I had really had little choice. At the time I picked Rivers I had a few WR's ranked similar the way I have the QB's ranked similar and two of those guys were left when I picked in the third. My highest rated RB left when I picked Rivers was Best who made it back to me in the third and who I took. So I knew I was going to get a player in the third I valued highly.

I guess if I was looking at it from a value based drafting style the one player left when I took Rivers who I had head and shoulders rated above the next guy at his position was Vernon Davis and it's possible that's the way I should have gone.
