1.03 jurb26

Jets, New York NYJ TMQB

Bush, Michael CHI RB

Charles, Jamaal KCC RB (Q)

Hillis, Peyton KCC RB

Lloyd, Brandon NEP WR

Washington, Nate TEN WR (P)

Davis, Fred WAS TE

Gonzalez, Tony ATL TE

Gronkowski, Rob NEP TE

As we make the turn to go to the back nine, I think the total scoring potential is here, but I can't say I love having to pick through the remaining ruble to fill out the roster.

If Gronk is healthy, he should approach 400 points in this format (almost hit 500 last year). Davis on pace for 300 points last year before missing the last part of the season. Gonzo hit 300 points on his own last year. On a ppg basis, these 3 were Top 7 in TE ppg. I realize last year is last year, but they will keep me in contention or kill me if they don't.

Charles and Hillis are supposed to get 500 touches between them, so combined that should be a decent chunck of production. Obviously I am weak at WR, but I suspect Lloyd is going to surprise some people. In this format, Washington will probably end up as a bottom tier WR2, but he always is undervalued and seemingly will be outproduced by younger receivers. With Britt still banged up, Washington should get plenty of looks and playing time.

I found out from MFL that if Tebow plays as a RB his stats won't count as a TMQB, which kinda makes no sense because you can't draft him as a RB (and he would definitely would have gotten drafted as one if he were listed as one).

All in all, I am not unhappy with my team, I just don't look forward to having to find some decent scoring options in the later rounds. Clearly, every team is in that situation, as we all have to start looking at receviers in the 80+ range or other guys that might not even get drafted in "regular" drafts.

After the studs and sure fire playoff guys, the rest is scraps IMO. These MOP QBs are projected out to 250 pts, the bottom QBs around 200 pts. I'd rather load up on talent now. I also think QBing as a whole is much improved this year. Last year the Eagles, Chargers, and SF QBs ranked 10-12 in the low 300 range. You can drop to #24 and Arizona's trainwreck at 258. Our 10th QB went at 3.11 this year, the 24th at 9.14. During that time you could have Thomas/Smith/Harvin or Baldwin/Baldwin/Quick.Looking at the scrubs below from last year...Wash - improvedBrowns - improvedChicago - :lmao: Cutler hopefully doesn't get hurtSeattle - improvedColts - improvedKC - should improved due to injuries last yearSTL - Bradford should be healthier and will have another yearJax - At least they have a backup this year and Gabbert can't do worse.I suspect the celler dwellers this year will come from teams hit with injuries.

These are two guys that could be top 10 talent with an injury to the "starter" and will meet or be close to their projections without an injury.

Texans, Houston HOU TMQB

Ingram, Mark NOS RB

Jones-Drew, Maurice JAC RB

Wells, Beanie ARI RB

Bowe, Dwayne KCC WR

Cruz, Victor NYG WR

Johnson, Calvin DET WR

Meachem, Robert SDC WR

Randle, Rueben NYG WR

Robinson, Laurent JAC WR

Bennett, Martellus NYG TE

Pretty heavy on the WR this year. Think I got nice valye on a couple of players though. MJD at 2.14 was a huge surprise. Bowe at 5.03 was a little surprising as well. I figured him to go in the 4th. L. Robinson was a guy I just couldn't pass up at 10.14. He should be the Jags WR1 IMO and Blackmon not reporting is making his value stronger every day.

Clearly I'm weak at TE. Not sure that is a particularlly good thing is this format but I think the strenght at WR can overlap that. I tried to draft the BPA regardless of position to this point. Obvioulsy now we are at the point where we have to start filling up the rosters.

Maybe robison will turn it around but hes fools gold to me. Coach already called him out for drops in training. That whole team seems to be imploding. Being a Steeler fan who lives in Atlanta I would have to say Mularkey was definately not the answer. HC is not the same as OC but I have no trust in the guy.

Fools gold at 10.14 in a 16 team league? Right, wrong or indifferent he is going to be the Jags starting WR1 this year. I'm not expecting much from him because I think it's a terrible situation. There is value in a player who will simply get opportunity to produce though and that is what Robinson will have. Hell, if he puts up a mediocre line of 50/600/4 I'd be happy at this draft spot. I think he could easily do more than that.

more love for the jags from florio

We broke down the rough start to Jaguars training camp on Monday, and things got worse on the practice field Tuesday. Starting left guard Will Rackley suffered a right ankle injury and did not return to the workout. Per Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times Union, Rackley was spotted after practice walking around on crutches and putting no weight on the injured ankle. Though the extent of the injury has not yet been disclosed, a high ankle sprain would threaten Rackley’s Week One availability. The Jaguars were hoping for a big second-year leap from Rackley, whom G.M. Gene Smith made the 76th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Jason Spitz, who hasn’t made a start since the 2009 season, is Rackley’s top backup at left guard.

In 4 months people will be talking about KC as one of the elite Ds in the NFL IMO. They are loaded with talent and I think they're winning their division this year.

Minny QB, like the next two drafted later.

:shrug: Nothing was calling out to me at WR or TE, so I took my top QB left as I do not want to end up with Jax. Turns out I could have waited another round before the other scrub QBs started to go, but I am not kicking myself for it.At least they play the Lions and Packers twice.

Hey Ref...remember busting on my PDSL pick of CJ in the 23rd/24th round. Either I did well or Yuds took the more medicore option.

Bro1ncos had an illegal roster move, so I threw back Andre Roberts into the player pool.

The following teams have already used their flex spot:

Fiddles, Unlucky, PHae, ARud, S-Ref, Yuds, BNB, Broadway, Jurb, H-T-F, Kruppe, Bro1ncos, and Woodrow.

Please make sure you meet the roster requirements. Most people usually mess thinks up by not changing their auto draft picks once they have filled a specific position.

Winslow, Kellen SEA TE - 11

Bailey, Dan DAL PK - 5

Walsh, Blair MIN PK - 11

Bears, Chicago CHI Def - 6

Broncos, Denver DEN Def - 7

Quick analysis...

- Need Stafford to do what he did last year where he put up the 5th most points in this format. If he returns to his 2009 or 2010 ways and misses games - very bad. If he plays a full 16 - should continue right where he left off.

- Even as just a rookie, I expect Luck to be better than what Indy was throwing out there last yr. Still has Wayne & Collie.

- You never know who may get the bulk in any game in a Shanny offense. So I was able to take both Helu and Hightower without overpaying.

- Peterson: I think this pick could make or break my team. Low end: 70% of what he was and for 10 games. High end: Practically what he was for 16 games. Most likely: 85% of what he was and only misses first 2 games. At the end of the 5th - chance I was willing to take.

- Scott: nothing sexy here. But he is the RB2 on his team, to a RB1 who has never averaged 15 carries a game. Fine for my last pick (18th rounder).

- WRs: Probably the strength of this team. Don't forget PPR for WRs. Welker as WR1, S.Smith as WR2, Wayne as WR3, Boldin as WR4, S.Smith as WR5. Not much to have to explain here. I like the upside of the other S.Smith. It was only 2009 when he had over 100 receptions. 2010 he got injured - so obviously couldn't repeat those numbers. 2011 - first yr back from injury - so expected to be subpar. If he is now recovered enough to put up 50 receptions - then I love him as my last WR. On the other hand, he may not even make the team in StL - so this is hit or miss. I don't love Boldin anymore, but as my 4th - I will take it. I love my WRs 1-3. Even with Gronk and Hernandez doing their thing last year, Welker was still a PPR beast. Welker's receptions the last 5 yrs: 122, 86, 123, 111, 112. The 86 and 123 yrs were not even full 16 game seasons. (And none of those numbers includes playoff receptions.) Add in almost a certainty to make the playoffs and I like him even more.

- TE: obviously very important in this league. With the 14th pick - the studs were already gone. So I did not want to chase one in the 1st or 2nd. I did, however, want to aim for high upside. I think Celek could be a top 10 TE and wouldn't be surprised to see him return to top 5. As 13th TE off the board, I will take it. Not much to love about Winslow and Carlson. But given the 2 ppr aspect of this for TEs, I wanted to use flex on this. They aren't great, but for where I took them, it could be okay.

- Not saying Ks and Defs are not important, but just don't want to talk about them.

As for playoffs, I tried to consider that, but not get caught up in it too much since so much changes every year. I'm a huge Giants fan and I can honestly say, I have no idea who is winning that division this year. NYG, Phil, Dal - none of those 3 would surprise me. So I have Celek from Phil, the K from Dal, etc. Same with NFC South. With coach and player suspensions in NO; Newton entering yr2 in Car without losing Smith, Deangelo, or Stewart; Atl always able to hang around with; I really don't know who will win that division. Where I found it more obvious (ie, NE), I took Welker. Someone like Stafford could see extra games too as I see GB winning that division, but Det possibly pulling out WC again.

I don't absolutely love my team, but I definitely don't hate it.

My past finishes:

1 very bad one (13th in 2009)

2 middle of the roads (8th in 2011, 9th in 2006)

3 top 5 finishes (5th in 2010, 3rd in 2008, overall winner (1st) in 2005 (that was Anarchy2 - all others have been Anarchy1)

QB's

I have been leery of Cam in other drafts this off-season, but felt like shooting for the moon in this all or nothing type of league. The sounds coming out of Carolina sounds like Cam is really turning into a leader and I am thinking his passing numbers should increase with a full camp even while his rushing numbers should drop. I like Freeman to have a bounce back year with his new toys in Tampa and should put up solid production this year even though it might not be spectacular.

RB's

I like my tandem of Matthews and Sproles, both should get plenty of touches and plenty of opps to put the ball in the endzone. Blount and Goodson, I am hoping can be TD vultures and solid backs if the guy in front of him goes down or struggles. Pead was more a shot in the dark since SJax seems to routinely miss 3-6 games each year.

WR's

I tried to get guys I thought would lead there teams in receptions, but it became very hard with the WR flying off the board much earlier then I remember them doing last year. Britt scares me but if he can get his head on straight and fix his knees he should have solid season. I like Baldwin to take over the WR1 role in KC and really start to make an impression in year 2. Percy should get lots of touches as Minny finds new ways to get the ball into his hands (again an injury worry accompanies him). I like Little and I think he is going to be a very solid #1 receiver in Cleveland, the question is can Weeden or McCoy get him the ball enough. Crabtree was just a guy I grabbed at the end hoping he can put up some decent TD numbers to justify him as a pick.

TE's

I knew TE were a premium and really went in wanting to grab one really solid guy and a couple more guys that could produce well. That didn't happen on either front. I do like Gresham and expect him to be the #2 target in Cinn and expect very solid numbers from him. By the time I made the decision to take another TE it was way too late. There wasn't anything but scraps under the table. It would be nice to see Lewis bounce back to form and since someone has to catch balls in JAX (reports make it sound like Laurent doesn't want them and Blackmon doesn't want to be in camp).

K's

Prater should get plenty of opps to kick with an offense that should score substantially more this year and be able to move the ball into the other teams side of the field before the 4th quarter each game. With Scobee, again I waited too long to get my 2nd kicker, but I do feel like there is a very good chance that JAX will have trouble sticking the ball into the end zone and hopefully lead to lots of FG opportunities.

DEF

Really hoping for middle of the road production from these two. Thinking both teams should have improved offenses which will hopefully provide the defenses with a little more rest and provide that they get to play with a lead a few more times this year.

Overall, I am not really happy with this team. I think my QB, RB, and WR will be solid production (barring injury, especially at WR), my TE set is mediocre at best. I am also concerned that even if this team produces during the regular season, I wasn't able to draft many guys on teams that I predict will be in the playoffs. If that happens then I can lose significant ground during the playoffs while other teams have players that are still scoring. I won this league last year by being able to hit on a few mid-round picks that really turned out to be gems. I will need to do that again this year to have any chance of repeating.

I found out from MFL that if Tebow plays as a RB his stats won't count as a TMQB, which kinda makes no sense because you can't draft him as a RB (and he would definitely would have gotten drafted as one if he were listed as one).

This makes absolutely no sense at all. If Harvin or Aaron Hernandez line up in the backfield & carry the ball are they subject to the same rule? The haven't been before.

Apparently where Tebow lines up for the play will determine if he scores as a QB or not at all. If he lines up as a QB and runs, that's fine. If he lines up anywhere else, he won't count as a QB for that play and it sounds like whatever points he scores won't count for anything.

Jets, New York NYJ TMQB

Titans, Tennessee TEN TMQB

I think the Jets QB will suxor in redraft but will be decent for this format. The Titans QB situation is flying a bit under the radar. They have some weapons and if Britt ever gets on the field the Titans should at least put up ok numbers.

Bush, Michael CHI RB

Charles, Jamaal KCC RB

Hillis, Peyton KCC RB

Thomas, Daniel MIA RB

If the Chiefs are serious about getting 500 carries between Charles and Hillis, that should get me some decent RB production. Bush and Thomas fall in the I-hope-they-touch-the-ball-150-times-somehow category.

Floyd, Michael ARI WR

Hankerson, Leonard WAS WR

Johnson, Chad MIA WR

Lloyd, Brandon NEP WR

Washington, Nate TEN WR

Obviously this group is weak, but when you go heavy on TE that's the price you pay. By the time you add in the playoffs, Lloyd should end up as a WR1 in this format. Washington did pretty well when Britt was out last year, so he should do better than his draft spot. Who knows with the other 3 guys, but IMO, even so so WR can still put up 100 points with the PPR scoring.

Davis, Fred WAS TE

Gonzalez, Tony ATL TE

Gronkowski, Rob NEP TE

As already discussed, this trio will make me or break me.

Carpenter, Dan MIA PK

Hanson, Jason DET PK

If there is much advantage for kickers, I think I have a slight one.

Colts, Indianapolis IND Def

Vikings, Minnesota MIN Def

IMO, if you don't get on of the top few, the rest of the defenses are too much of a crapshoot to really go crazy over. The Colts can't be as bad as they were last year, right?

I don't love or hate this team, and it could be in the mix but I doubt it will win.
