Where is Forsett falling to? Seems like a crazy bargain right now.

Forsett is getting no attention in any of the drafts I've been in..I've been taking him in every draft between rounds 8-10

We were in this draft.  Good squad, Barnidge a bit of a reach in the 5th and you have to hope he produces.  Otherwise, WR and RB starters and depth are solid.

We were in the 11-hole:  

Dalton (16), Cutler (17)

McCoy (3), D Murray (5), Matt Jones (6), Langford (7), Sproles (14), CJ2K (15), Chris Thompson (18)

Dez (1), Allen Rob (2), Maclin (4), Wheaton (9), Torrey Smith (10), VJax (13)

Gates (8), JCameron (11), JCook (12)

CIN (19), Catanzaro (20)

The 12-hole guy didn't show up for the draft, so was put on auto, which picked 5 QBs for him.  We kept trying to work a turn on QBs but kept getting sniped.  Hence the relative weakness at QB...

Donnell (16) H Miller (17) Tamme (18)

CIn (19)

Josh Brown (20)

I never, ever go RB/RB but they were the best players on the board.

I like it. You can wait on RBs this year. Forsett is a great value as long as he stays healthy. I should have grabbed Gordon instead of Palmer at 2nd qb.

Was between Forsett and Abdullah at that spot.  Was hoping whoever I didn't take fell to the 8th. Didn't happen.  Pretty happy with the result.  Thought Ivory/Henry in 8/9 presented nice value. If I hit on a couple of these backs, there is big potential here. 

Gordon, we'll see. Could be gold there, could be a complete waste of a pick.  Guess we'll find out on Aug 1.

If you had taken Abdullah i think Forsett would have still been there on the turn around.. Nice team either way.. Like the Olsen, Barnidge, Tamme trio along with your trio at receiver..

Thx.  Well Gordon/Abdullah and JStew were all taken after that Forsett pick.  so not sure he makes it back.  Would really love this team if I got Deandre Washington.  Some guy was snaking every one of these rookie handcuffs.  He took 4 in a row at 1 point.  Was lucky to even land Dixon.  Seems that a lot of people are mixed on Barnidge.  Think he's probably a safe pick in that 4-6 range.  He's likely going to lead the team in Rec's again and tds as well. Dont see Coleman catching 80+.   Hue also loved throwing to Eifert in the RZ.  I could see something like 75/900/8+.

Think it's probably better then you think.  Although you missed in some spots.  The Palmer pick as you noted.  Terrific value on Palmer, but with Rodgers in hand, no need picking Palmer there.  should have went TE here.  But even more so, the JStew/DWill picks.  Just overkill at RB.  You had 3 strong backs already, no need adding both these guys.  You missed out on the Ertz/Eifert/Gates/Witten tier.  Team looks a lot better with 1 of those TE's on it.  I would have went TE in both those spots. Just hard to compete in this thing w/o at least 1 strong TE.  Going 5 RB in your top 8, you're going to have serious deficiencies elsewhere.  That's pretty much what happened here.

Spot on assessment. Was hoping to get J Gordon in the round after Palmer, but he went two picks later.

Thanks for your feedback.

Drafted from the 2nd spot today.....was amazed to get Dion Lewis in the 4th.....absolutely love my team and the 4 headed RB. I had someone call me during the 16-17 rounds and it went to auto draft and took the 2 defenses....I was supposed to take a defense and James White to back up D Lewis....oh well. If Josh Gordon gets playing time this year especially in the playoffs I can run away with the league for sure

QB: Romo (12); Cutler (15); Mariota (18)

RB: Leveon Bell (1); J Charles (2); Dion Lewis (4); Rawls (5)

WR; Marshall (3); Kevin White (6); Desean Jackson (8); Travis Benjamin (9); Josh Gordon (10); Lafell (20)

TE: Julius Thomas (7); Zach Miller (11); W. Tye (13)

DEF: Sea (14); Oak (16); Jax (17)

K: Crosby (19)

11-hole:

Wilson (8), Carr (16)

Gurley (1), McCoy (4), DLewis (6), JStew (9), Artis-Payne (13), Morris (20)

Cooks (2), Torrey (7), Wheaton (10), Aiken (11), Green-Beckham (12), Doctson (15), TWill (18)

Olsen (3), Delanie (5), Hooper (19)

ARI (14), Hauschka (17)

WRs obviously weak, but there were huge runs and little value, so we took what fell to us - Delanie at 5.11 and Dion at 6.02 couldn't be passed up. Gotta hope we find some production at WR2 out of that crew.

Geezus.  Did this draft just despise RB's? Gurley at 11??? Dion at 6.2 is wild.  Pretty much hate all those WR's after Cooks but I'm sure 1 of them will step up as a WR2.  And you won't be starting more then 2 anyways, if things go according to plan. Well done. Team should definitely contend.

Per D. Graziano espn:

Lev Bell suspended 4 games for missing a drug test.  In appeal process.  Ouch.

I was going to avoid him if he got to me, but he never did. Thought there might be some value in DWill, but I never thought he'd be in line for lead back duties for the first four games.

You seem to be a fan of players I don't like based on the drafts you are doing making difficult for me to say I like your teams. I think your approach is a bit too RB heavy for my liking. One thing I would say is it seems you are high on Rawls. Be careful of that.....Its going to be a bit more RBBC than most anticipate

I think Ebron is a potential breakout TE candidate this year although I'm not a fan of ASJ or Rodgers (prefer Brate and Cook on those teams)..

Would have went RB at that 4/5 elbow over Fleener there.  That run on those 2nd tier rbs with RB1 upside ends in the early to mid 6th for the most part.  From what I've seen at least.  So having last pick in 6th, u were playing with fire.   Also not a fan of flexing 2 TE's, their dud percentage is just too high.  All that said, if u hit on a couple of the backs, this team should be strong.

Huge risks? Interesting you feel that way. I did go more RB heavy than I would have liked but thats how the draft fell with 5 teams going Zero RB. I trust in my evaluations.

Knew the gamble i was taking but that was the plan with this team..Drafted a bunch of teams already and wanted to do something different with this one.. If an RB fell to the end of the 6th great but i wanted to go with the 3 TE on this team..

Pretty epic team from the 5 spot.

QBs: B+, solid

RBs: A++, stacked

WRs: A- depending on Hurns busting out

TE: B-, but with lots of potential

PK: F, unproven/much better kickers

DF: A, top five defense

P.S. Update your "interests" section of your profile, it's $300,000 not $250,000.

Epic? Huh? What are you Scientist's cousin? Haha

Qb: B+? Why because he has 4 of them? Lol. Doesn't have 1 top-10 guy here.  Why take 4 qbs in this thing is anyone's guess.   Pretty silly.  C at best

RB: A++? Not nearly as egregious but still probably generous.  There are legitimate questions on 3/5 of those guys.  Could be awesome, could be meh.  I'd go A- tho. 

 

WR: A-? Wow.  He's got a weak WR1, weak WR2 and weak WR3 with NOTHING behind them.  How is this core an A-?  I also see every one of those top 3 regressing this year.  Especially Fitz/Hurns.  This core is a C at best.  

 

TE: B-??  With Ebron as his TE1? Get outta here.  The guy caught 47 balls last year.  Sure he's got potential, so do 10 other TE's.  As a TE2,  I like Ebron, as your 1, Yuck. The 2 backups are also bench fodder.   This core is a D/C-

 

I hope you're not a school teacher Skanker, those kids be getting A's for knowing today's date.

I sense some DaGlidz/Sweetness jealousy. Its cool though, nobody liked my 2 teams last year and they only went on to finish top 100 and top 50. I appreciate the grades Skanker....although I do think my kicker is an A+ and not an F.
