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

Think it's pretty average overall to be honest. Your 2 best players will likely miss 4-5 games. Foster has missed 3+ games in 4 of last 5 seasons. He's a virtual lock to miss some time. Throw in Brady's suspension to boot. Stafford is ok, wouldn't be in love with that combo, myself at least.

The WR core is solid, although I don't see a top-15 WR in that group.

Julius should be a decent option. 60+ rec's with 8-10 td's is a fair projection.

Also I don't get drafting 4 TE's/ 2 D's while u have just 5 RB's. with the 2 issues already noted above.

All in all, I think it's decent enough to compete if things work out but it's probably closer to the middle of pack then at the top...IMO

Foster is a monster for getting him in the 2nd round.. I don't care if he missed 3 games because the other 13 he will be an absolute bell cow, you can't say that about many guys... Take the 20 every week he plays and throw someone else in when he is hurt...

If you project Thomas for that then you should be passing on Graham in every draft to get Thomas 5 rounds later.. If he reaches those numbers than him and Graham will be really close to each other at years end..

Here is a team I drafted that I started similar to you but filled it out differently.

Ben, Dalton

AP, McCoy, Ingram, Crowell, Simms, K. Davis, T. Riddick

Cooks, Marshall, D. Jackson, V. Jackson, E. Royal, D. Bowe, N. Toon

Daniels, V. Davis

Jets, Parkey

I think Graham will catch ~ 25 more balls, if not more...then tack on another 3-400 yds. Even if the TD's are equal, your talking 70-80 Pt difference there. Not really that close IMO.

I really don't think Graham's #'s will drop much. He's the best receiving target by a mile there. Wilson won't attempt as many passes as Brees, thats for sure, but he's probably targeted by Wilson just as much as Brees. Just due to the fact, there isn't much else there in Seattle. I see his rec/yardage totals staying somewhat in line. I do see a dip in TD's with Lynch there at the GL. I think 7-9 td's is more likely then his usual 10-12+. All things considered, still an elite option in this format.

Stafford is ok, wouldn't be in love with that combo, myself at least.

Calvin missed a lot of games last year and was injured in a few he played too...add to that Ebron getting better and I think Stafford will have a much better year. Brady was a top 5 QB in the 2nd half of last year and all of his weapons and OL are returning except Vareen who was not very productive to begin with. Gronk will start the year healthy too ....

So how many yards do you predict from Graham???? I don't think he reaches 1000 this year and that's if he is healthy all year.. I think you are projecting too much from him. I see him around 920 or so, if that's the case you only see Thomas at 500 something??

I see around 600 for JT and 900-1,000 for Graham. A full 16 games for Graham, I think he hits his normal production. 5-6 rec/game with ~ 60 yds rec. I also think they scale back Wilson's running this year and keep him in the pocket, increasing his passing #'s

I feel the same way as Coots. If Thomas does close to what he did last year or year before, he is a complete steal at his 7th round ADP +/- 1 round. Reality is I highly doubt he gets the TDs he got the last 2 years since that offense in Jax will not be in the red zone as often as Denver was. Now, he might be a target monster given how young QBs love to throw intermediate routes to TEs and given Jax will be playing from behind quite a bit and do not have an established run game or huge WR target monsters (Allen Robinson still not fully proven). That might help him get at least 60 catches and to me, 60 catches 700+ yards, 5+ TDs is great value in the 7th round, especially given his high floor every week in 1.5 PPR league.

I think Graham will be around 800 yards receiving, 10TDs. Late 3rd round would be more appropriate for him IMO.....he never lasts there though.

Like you said... If you want someone you go get them. Going one round earlier is fine if that guarantees u the player

hell yes......we just differ on our assessment of him. With that said I will be purchasing a Graham jersey for this upcoming season. Black ginger time.

Ok you just gave him 140 Pts before his rec's. How many balls is he catching? 80? Think that's probably fair, if not low. Now he's up to 260 Pts. How many players (non-qb) scored 260 Pts last year? 10? And personally I think that projection is his floor..

I think you're underestimating the 1.5 for TE's...

I'd give him 65 receptions.

https://slate.adobe.com/a/5VAKK

That article is pretty good about breaking down the why. In the last 4 years no seahawk receiver has had more than 99 targets. ..... I don't think they will start to throw more. Lets say they target him 100 times. With a 65% catch rate that is 65 receptions.

No Seahawks WR has had greater than 99 targets because they all are crap. And the QB is over-rated when it comes to passing the ball.

11-hole:

Brady (12), Bradford (18), Sanchez (19)

Lacy (1), Foster (2), Spiller (3), D Martin (8), Sims (9), Blue (14), Starks (15)

K Benjamin (4), M Bryant (5), A Robinson (6), Agholor (7), Funchess (16)

Daniels (10), Eifert (11), R Rodgers (13)

CIN, Hauschka

Clearly didn't plan on 3 QBs, but couldn't risk Brady and Bradford potentially being out week 1, and Sanchez wasn't unreasonable in the 19th vs a flyer WR or TE. Otherwise, like the club, RBs are rock solid and WR corps has upside. TEs all have the same bye which needs to be solved later.

Just curious Coots - which picks you do not consider as value out of:

6th - Lafell

7th - JThom

8th - Fitz

9th and 10th - QB combo both of whom could finish in top 10 and almost a guarantee one of them will be in PPG (given Tom will miss some games, it is possible only a top 10 finish in PPG for him)

11th - Bush

12th - Rams

I do not see any of the above as reaches....these picks are within a round at best of their ADP in most drafts in this format. Maybe you like different players at the spot? Like Wallace instead of Fitz maybe?

Every player from Fitz down is a reach there. Whether its 1 rd or 2, none are values. And STL in rd 12 is an egregious reach. Not sure how u don't see that but ok.

Solid team all around. Seems like guys fell to u here. I like Aghulor in the 7th. I'm not high on those top 3 WR's but I realize I'm in the minority there.

Given Sea, Hou and Buff were drafted just before that, I do not see picking up a top 5 D as a reach in the 12th....but that's the beauty of this....everyone sees things differently!

No they are not....coming from a Sea fan this is hilarious. Just look at the D talent on St Louis, Hous, Sea and Bills and maybe Jets and you know they all are going to be top 10....most of them top 5 when it is all said and done. St Louis D was terrorizing in the 2nd half of last year....that DL is so loaded with talent. But like I said to each one their own....I will take the edge my D will provide against a last round D all day long. This is a game of minor edges....everyone counts.

Given Sea, Hou and Buff were drafted just before that, I do not see picking up a top 5 D as a reach in the 12th....but that's the beauty of this....everyone sees things differently!

Defenses are so unpredictable. Just pick one in the last round.

No they are not....coming from a Sea fan this is hilarious. Just look at the D talent on St Louis, Hous, Sea and Bills and maybe Jets and you know they all are going to be top 10....

Oh my.

11-hole:

Brady (12), Bradford (18), Sanchez (19)

Lacy (1), Foster (2), Spiller (3), D Martin (8), Sims (9), Blue (14), Starks (15)

K Benjamin (4), M Bryant (5), A Robinson (6), Agholor (7), Funchess (16)

Daniels (10), Eifert (11), R Rodgers (13)

CIN, Hauschka

Clearly didn't plan on 3 QBs, but couldn't risk Brady and Bradford potentially being out week 1, and Sanchez wasn't unreasonable in the 19th vs a flyer WR or TE. Otherwise, like the club, RBs are rock solid and WR corps has upside. TEs all have the same bye which needs to be solved later.

**********************

Overall, very solid team. Keep in mind that they made a change this year where they have a waiver period prior to week 1 so you don't really need to go with 3 QBs. Strong core of RB's and lots of upside with your WR's. TE's are not great but hopefully for you one of them will emerge as they all have some upside possibility. Overall, team should definitely compete. Nice work!

Pretty blah team really. That's the 1st word that comes to mind. Really don't like the Gio pick at 3.10/4.3. Either one, it's too high for him and there had to be better options at that point.

Team looks to be average to me, if not below avg

Ok then the Allen pick is what stands out then. Too high for me. Also the gap in RB from 4.3-5.10 is alot steeper then the WR gap. Without knowing which RB's where there at 4.3, (assuming the Ellington/Gordon/Murray crowd) I would have taken one there and then WR at the 5.10 pick. Edited by Da Gildz

yeah I hear you, Ellington, Gordon, Miller, Gore, Hyde were all gone before 4.3 but I could've gone Spiller, A Morris, Ingram, Gurley, Randle, L Murray, Ingram or Yeldon at 4.3. all those backs went between 4.4 and 5.9. I admit I'm probably higher on Allen than most I have him at wr 16

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

The draft fell nicely to you here in the 7 hole.. I loved your first 5 picks and then thought you missed a lot of value that was on the board... Again I am in this draft with you so it will be interesting to see how these leagues play out. I really liked my team after the draft but in 2 months who knows..

Good Luck

Just curious Coots - which picks you do not consider as value out of:

6th - Lafell

7th - JThom

8th - Fitz

9th and 10th - QB combo both of whom could finish in top 10 and almost a guarantee one of them will be in PPG (given Tom will miss some games, it is possible only a top 10 finish in PPG for him)

11th - Bush

12th - Rams

I do not see any of the above as reaches....these picks are within a round at best of their ADP in most drafts in this format. Maybe you like different players at the spot? Like Wallace instead of Fitz maybe?

Just thought you left better players on the board for sure during those middle rounds.. Specifically 6, 8, I could live with the rest of them.. QBs were great for were you picked them, not sure why anyone wouldn't like that combo. Overall a very nice team though that has lots of potential...

I like this team a lot... Good Luck... They may have a wire period before the season but if Sanchez is the starter he would have to pay big money for him before the season even starts.. Smart move as far as I'm concerned

Allen went in the 3rd round of my draft yesterday so he seems to be creeping up the boards

Very nice draft. Strength all around. Not that hot on the TEs but you more than make up for it with the rest of the team.
