Interesting draft. I'm not a fan of Gurley at all -- I doubt he plays much if at all this year but otherwise like most of your picks and getting Ten combo in 9/10 is great. You have a nice receiver group so long as Marshall works out and I suppose that one of Clay or Reed will likely work out.

I don't get the Ten combo comments/ love..... A turd is a turd is a turd. Would you have wanted the Ten combo last year?

I agree Sankey is a turd...I expect and hope Cobb gets this outright.....in the 10th round, I wanted Knile Davis but some dude picked him one pick before mine....so I went with plan B to get another RB body in place in case I need some help there with Gurley's situation. At worst Cobb gets goal line carries, which can help with bye weeks etc. Also, I am hearing Doug Martin seems rejuvenated and ready to rock the ball in Tampa.

Martin is a wasted pick, you would of been a lot better off by drafting Sims.....

I am hoping being a free agent after this year motivates this dude. See below though for some positive off-season news. I understand the skepticism, trust me. Roll of the dice for sure....worst case I start Reggie Bush at RB2

The Tampa Tribune says Doug Martin had his "best offseason in three years."
Martin has come roaring off the mat, quickly going from the trade block to the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Charles Sims, who averaged 2.8 YPC last year, is likely to be used in his natural pass-catching role and Bobby Rainey projects as a backup in both spots. Although Martin has been one of the worst running backs in the league over the last two seasons, he's a lead runner in a contract year with an eighth-round ADP. As a rookie in 2012, he erupted for a 319-1,454-11 line
Doug Martin has slimmed down this offseason.
Martin expects to play between 220-225, but has dropped five-percent body fat. The Bucs have been getting Martin first-team reps ahead of Charles Sims. Despite the coaching staff's apparent infatuation with scatback Sims, Martin remains in the driver's seat to lead Tampa Bay in carries this season. Jun 13 - 5:34 PM
Doug Martin has been getting first-team reps at OTAs.
Martin has the inside track to remain the early-down starter over Charles Sims, who averaged 2.8 YPC as a rookie. "He's on the first team like he’s always been," coach Lovie Smith said of Martin. "He's one of our guys, he's our running back. He's showing up and getting good work. It’s as simple as that." 26 years old, Martin will be worth a mid-round gamble in 2015 fantasy drafts.Jun 5 - 6:08 PM
Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds said Doug Martin stayed with the Bucs because new OC Dirk Koetter "wanted him back."
Bucs GM Jason Licht mentioned in a radio interview that Koetter liked what he saw from Martin on tape. Though Lovie Smith and the front office appear ready to move on from the oft-injured running back, Martin may have found an ally in Koetter. Martin will battle second-year RB Charles Sims for lead duties in training camp. May 30 - 10:57 AM

RB- Charles, Coleman, Ivory, Cobb, T Allen, Richardson

WR- Cobb, Hopkins, Golden Tate, Garcon, Stevie Johnson, Funchess, Patterson

Nice team I think you will be fine at RB.Besides those WRs will make up any shortcomings at RB. We play week two good luck.

Thanks. I think you'll be just fine at TE with Heath although I'd of course prefer him as a TE2. You have a nice team and have a good shot for the playoffs especially if Manning is back in form (like I hope he is as a Broncos fan).

Drafted my first team tonight. Draft just ended a few minutes ago. I think I got value where I needed it and adjusted fairly well when things didn't fall my way. For instance, I certainly didn't intend on drafting 3 QBs but I think Bradford's upside outweighs the RB/WR/TEs who were there at the time. I can also make a move before the season begins and of course, throughout the season. I'll stash Bradford/Flacco for now and see what happens in pre-season. I'd probably rate myself a solid B. Not very happy with the RBs I got after Charles. I kept just missing my guys at RB. When I drafted Sims, totally planned on getting Martin a few rounds later but he went instantly. If Charles stays healthy, it's not as big a concern, I just need 1 RB to pan out really. WRs are loaded with upside. Love my Brees>Colston combo, especially with Graham, Stills out and no replacement players drafted. I think Colston will get close to double digit TDs this year. I'd be ecstatic with 70/1050/9. I plan on starting dual TEs, obviously, so here's my team with projected week 1 starters bolded and round drafted in parenthesis. RB2 is my most uncertain position right now, so the bolded below is certain to change come September. I would love to start Charles and Charles at RB!

Drew Brees (6)

Joe Flacco (15)

Sam Bradford (18)

Jamaal Charles (1.03)

Charles Sims (7)

Bishop Sankey (8)

Ryan Mathews (11)

Darren Sproles (12)

Josh Robinson (20)

Randall Cobb (2)

Sammy Watkins (4)

DeVante Parker (9)

Marques Colston (10)

Phillip Dorsett (14)

Andrew Hawkins (19)

Jimmy Graham (3)

Martellus Bennett (5)

Jordan Reed (13)

ARI (16)

Hauschka (17)

E2A: Forgot to mention that drafting Andrew Hawkins was a mistake. Actually wanted Greg Jennings since I have Parker and I think MIA/Tannehill are the real deal. Hope he stays quiet in preseason so I can nab him via FA.

Club #1 from 11-hole:

Wilson (8), Cutler (16)

CJ Anderson (1), Lynch (2), Randle (5), Yeldon (6), Mcfadden (10), Ball (14), Bradshaw (20)

Andre Johnson (3), Steve Smith (7), Torrey Smith (9), Stills (12), Latimer (13), Wheaton (17), Hawkins (19)

Olsen (4), L. Green (11)

NYJ, Gostkowski

If I manage to find a serviceable WR2 in that crowd I think the club will be OK

Club #2 from 5-hole:

Romo (11), Bridgewater (15)

AP (1), McCoy (2), L. Murray (5), J. Bell (6), Helu (13), McKinnon (14)

Cooks (3), Edelman (4), Lafell (8), Garcon (9), K Wright (12), J Strong (16), Toon (19)

Witten (6), Daniels (10), Cook (17)

MIA, Prater

Felt this was a well-balanced club with pretty good depth, if lacking star power at WR and TE.

I was in your draft (see club #2 above). You already highlighted the issue with your club, which is RB2 and RB depth. Alot of dependency there, you have to hope that SIms wins the job over DMart, and/or Matthews becomes serviceable in the high-volume PHI offense. Otherwise I think the club looks fine - Strength of the club is the TEs; I am not a Watkins fan at his pricetag (but that's just an opinion), but I am a fan of Colston and think he's undervalued. Good luck..

Nice! We were in this draft together. Now I know who nabbed Edelman and Helu shortly before I was set to pick them ;)

Agree, this is a very balanced team. IF Latavius starts from where he left off, sky is the limit and youd be stacked with 3 RB1s

Like the club alot. Huge depth at RB (just kept getting value that we couldnt pass up), solid TEs, and the WR corps, while obviously not the strength of the club, has alot of upside.

Like Eddy lacy at 10, great value pick for sure.

Myself, would have went WR over Miller or J Stew.

WR core the obvious weakness as you pointed out. After Agholor, it's ugly.

TE's should be servicable.

Overall not my type of team but its solid.

I never considered going this strategy but its just how things fell so I ended up with Gronk/Luck. It was fun to try and I think I'll be ok.

QB: Luck (2)

RB: Bernard (4), Gurley (5), Sankey (12), Sprolles (9), Bush (11), Cadet (17), D-WIlliams (10)

WR: Evans (3), Marshall (6), D-Jackson (7), Cruz (8), Patterson (14), Stills (15), Sanu (16), Shorts (18)

TE: Gronk (1), Reed (13)

K: Walsh (20)

D: Carolina (19)

Had the 4th pick and the two guys I would have taken over Gronk went before my pick. Then on they way back it was down to Hill, TY, or Cobb....my buddy I drafted with hates them all so we said screw it and went Luck. Typically Im a draft a QB late guy but Im excited to see how this turns out.....Really went against the grain here. I feel pretty confident every year I can find one wavier wire gem at RB. Also drafted D-Will one pick before the Bell owner which made me happy. Im certain he was going with him with one of his next two picks.

1st team of the year. From the 2 hole:

QB: Brees (7), Cutler (18)

RB: L. Murray (4), JStew (5), Jennings (6), Sims (9), Cobb (10), Andre Will (15), Rice (20)

WR: A. Brown (1), Jeffery (3), M. Floyd (8), John Brown (11), Quick (12), Dorsett (14), Crabtree (16)

TE: Graham (2), Vernon D (13)

K: Bailey (19)

Def: NYJ (17)

Overall I'm pleased. Would have liked to have better RB's at the top but I think I'll be able to find enough production there...

Any feedback is appreciated.

DWill is a wasted pick There was an article recently that the Steelers will go full RBBC using Archer etc when Bell is out so you are not going to get any production from DWill. That dude is done anyways....he had one good year in his entire career.....never seen a RB make so much $$ being so useless

Most RBs are in RBBC. I'm looking for a potential 10-15 carries for the first few weeks if Gurley isn't ready. Probably won't start him, but I don't think he's a bad option considering the offense and round you pick him in. Not sure what you thought I expected... But it's not much fwiw.

I think you are a bit higher on Graham than I am (and Im a hawks fan). But then again, in the draft I did from the 4 spot there really isn't a ton left when it gets back to you. I can see Graham finishing somewhere in the top 5 for TE's but Im not sure you want that when you select him with your second pick. Love Jstew in the 5th. Its a well balanced team, you will need to find a RB somewhere as its likely only one of that group will pan out. Everyone has holes and I would say RB is where you could land one via free agency and be looking good.

1st team of the year. From the 2 hole:

QB: Brees (7), Cutler (18)

RB: L. Murray (4), JStew (5), Jennings (6), Sims (9), Cobb (10), Andre Will (15), Rice (20)

WR: A. Brown (1), Jeffery (3), M. Floyd (8), John Brown (11), Quick (12), Dorsett (14), Crabtree (16)

TE: Graham (2), Vernon D (13)

K: Bailey (19)

Def: NYJ (17)

Overall I'm pleased. Would have liked to have better RB's at the top but I think I'll be able to find enough production there...

Any feedback is appreciated.

Yea was hoping Murray would fall to me at 2.11. He was a snatched up at 2.9 tho. At that point, Graham was the no brainer pick. Forsett was best available RB and that top WR tier was all gone. Even if Graham went 80+/1,000/8, that pick will be worth it. Anything more then that, it's house money.

Agree tho, RB is the wildcard on this team. I do think 1 of Sims/Cobb will pan out. Seen enough of Sankey to know he's a glorified 3rd down back. The question is how good is Cobb?

The ceiling is high tho with this group.

I never considered going this strategy but its just how things fell so I ended up with Gronk/Luck. It was fun to try and I think I'll be ok.

QB: Luck (2)

RB: Bernard (4), Gurley (5), Sankey (12), Sprolles (9), Bush (11), Cadet (17), D-WIlliams (10)

WR: Evans (3), Marshall (6), D-Jackson (7), Cruz (8), Patterson (14), Stills (15), Sanu (16), Shorts (18)

TE: Gronk (1), Reed (13)

K: Walsh (20)

D: Carolina (19)

.

My draft from the 4 spot. Thoughts?

Pretty similar to my team above I think. Your RB situation may be a bit more bleak tho. Gurley is just a flat out question mark at the moment. Is he even active week 1? If hes good to go, what does his workload look like early in season? PUP list is still a possibility also. I think Gurley will be alot more valuable come week 8+ vs early in the season. Gio I think will get you his 10-12 ppg but his ceiling is pretty limited with Hill there. The rest of those RB's all are pretty shaky options. And 3 of them are virtual locks to be poor options IMO (Bush/Sproles/DWill). We know what they are at this point. I can't imagine starting any of them outside of DWill for those first few games. Even then, he's barely a flex at this point. Having said all that, Luck/Gronk will make up for the deficiencies at RB. Pts are Pts at the end of the day. If Luck/Gronk are giving you 50+ any given week, your RB's become a tad less important.

Your WR core while not elite, its definitely serviceable. I think Marshall will be better then most others do. He's dealt with horrible qb play his whole career, Geno is nothing new. Also Rex is out of town, so maybe the Jets will actually pass the ball this yr

Like my team, your RB's are the wildcard. You might be pretty dependent on Luck/Gronk in the early going but I see this team getting stronger as the yr progresses.

Peyton in the 7th and Wallace in the 9th is great.I got Peyton in the 5th and Wallace in the 7th looks like I'm drafting players too soon again as usual.

I always think it's better to just get the player you like even if it's a few rounds early

Pretty solid. Your WR core is obviously super strong. Spiller/Randle/Jennings should be adequate enough. Handcuffing Jennings was a good move as well

Overall, no real weaknesses that I can see. If you hit on those backs, this squad has huge upside. If you miss, I can see it being average to slightly above.

From the 7th spot (shockingly both OBJ and Bell fell to me since Eddie Lacy and Dez went in the top 6....took me a while but I finally went with Bell):

QB: Brady (9); Stafford (10)

RB: Leveon Bell (1); Foster (2); Ingram (3); Reggie Bush (11); De Angelo Williams (13)

WR: Kelvin Benjamin (4); Brandon Marshall (5); La Fell (6); Larry Fitz (8); Harvin (14); Cordarelle Patterson (18)

TE: Julius Thomas (7); Cook (15); Niles Paul (16); Jacob Tamme (20)

K: Hauschka (19)

D: Rams (12); Green Bay (17)

Fire away.... of course not having Bell initial weeks is where I hope I can survive....love my QB combo. Foster staying healthy is the key

Sweetness_34 - that is a good looking club. You managed to put together a solid WR corps while going big RB early. So looks very good and well-balanced at the top. Only concern would be weakness at TE. Difficult to get a top tier TE without sacrificing at other positions. While Jthom was probably somewhere around fair value at 7.07, I don't think he actually plays up to that. Any case, club should compete...

Thanks Seven....Yes JThom will not get the TDs he got last year but if he can get my 60+ catches, that will be good enough to get this team into playoffs assuming Bell and Foster stay healthy and give me the top 5 RB production I would expect in a PPR. I almost picked Benjamin in the 3rd and finally decided to get that 3rd RB given Bell being out first few weeks.....luckily he came back to me in the 4th....like it when a plan comes together ;)
