Well, they didn't name the league after me for my looks.

I liked you guys way better when you bashed people over their picks . . . not their lack of picks.

Hey everyone is bashing mine (as usual).

I take back my comments about Brandin Cooks. Your draft stinks and you are a poo poo face. (that should make him happy)

BTW I would bash peoples picks more if I had time, I've been working the past 12 hours and still did not make anyone wait for my picks. Hows that for an example? ;)

Totally different strategy this season. I always have waited late for the quarterbacks, but have not chose wisely later. If Seattle and New England play well into the playoffs then the early back to back quarterback will give me an advantage. Probably not enough to offset the value lost at wide receiver and running back, but I have taken the perceived value at running back for a few years and that has definitely not panned out. I have also performed miserably at tight end so I have joined in the take a lot of tight ends early crowd. Hopefully I can be near the top of the scoring there as well. Now for the rest of the roster, can I find bargains or will I be drafting several zeroes?

1.7 Brady seemed like a no-brainer as the Patriots should be heavily favored for the super bowl. I think that he has another great season in him and I also like that they kept his back-up with the team.

2.10 Wilson and the Seahawks QB to have two highly ranked QB teams with high hope for a long playoff run. Was considering both Olsen and Graham, but they went at 2.5 and 2.8. Was not looking at running back and thought that it was too early for Baldwin at WR9.

3.7 Rudolph - I actually considered Rudolph in the second round and ran to the podium for this pick.

4.10 Delanie Walker - was hoping for Ertz or Bennett to fall and they went well earlier. Began looking elsewhere and set autodraft for Walker of Larry Fitzgerald. I think Bia got a bargain with Fitz at 5.1

Lots of work to do for sure, but enjoy drafting with you guys again. Would prefer a little more discussion on value picks and a little less whining, but at least there is humor all through the thread and humor is always worth the read here as we follow along.

Predrafted my next pick and reviewed Jeremy's roster as I made the choices. He has gathered three of the looks like value running backs in his first four picks. I have done similar in the past and never liked the end result. Good luck finding bargains Jeremy and if you are reading this, you are up.

Holloway would like more discussion...I agree...so...

1.09 Le'Veon Bell RB3.....at nine no way did I think I would sniff a top guy, so felt pretty good about getting Bell here and it made the decision pretty easy instead of having to pick from a few guys I have ranked about the same.  Bell missed 3 games to start the year last year and then also week 17 before coming back for the playoffs....so he finished as RB3 in this format and could have played 4 more games. He avg just under 20 points a game so if you give him about another 80 points, he finishes as RB1...40 points clear of David Johnson. Hard to claim value in the first round....but maybe I got a little.

2.08 Jimmy Graham TE5....4 TE's already off the board and a bunch of picks, including a couple from Jeremyx13, till I'm OTC again so besides taking a long nap, TE became the focus in this format.  Graham is back as the #2 target for Wilson and should finish in top 5. Zero value here really.

3.09 Tyreek Hill WR18...debated for awhile, but like his upside more than others and he wasn't going to survive the turn.  Arob is almost dead to me as I blew a couple second round picks on him last year in some home leagues.  I'm sure I'll miss out on his comeback now, but I can live with that.  Hill represents absolutely no value here as he finished as WR19 last year in this format. But I didn't really see any value in the RB's with no PPR for them.  As I mentioned earlier I almost went with the TE heavy approach with this pick and my next one, but just couldn't do it. Only bright thing is that his snaps and touches should increase, so he might finish a few spots higher than last year.  Talent is not a question, only issue in my mind is if teams find a way to limit him, unfortunately KC plays NE in week one so that answer and blueprint may come very quickly. Helps that the league now gives the player points for scoring on special teams.  If Hill would have gotten 18 more points he would have finished as WR15 just behind Fitzgerald and ahead of Crabtree, Cooper, Tate, D. Thomas, and Hopkins. He won't be returning kickoffs but will punts (if they kick to him), but even if he loses those 3 ST TD's, he should be able to make them up with the increase in touches. 

4.08 Terrelle Pryor WR25...Pryor will be on a ton of my teams moving forward at this price.Finished as WR23 in this format last year and his situation seems to have improved pretty dramatically. I am higher on him than most with top 10 type possibilities IMO. This was reflected in other drafts that were ahead of this one and the reason I went Hill/Pryor instead of Pryor/Hill.  Plus I doubt Hill made the turn back to me. Pryor at 6'4 225 is a physical specimen with speed and has shown to be a tough cover for even some of the best corners. His work ethic is off the charts.  He has put in time with Randy Moss and Antonio Brown reaching out to them to improve his game. Signed a one year deal, betting on himself.  I'm all in. The move from CLE to WAS should have his arrow pointing way up.  There is some competition for receptions with a healthy Doctson, Crowder, and Reed, but I expect Cousins to fall in love with Pryor's speed down the field and his size in the red zone. I expect Pryor to eat and drastically outperform WR25, leapfrogging his way into the top 10 for years to come. 

Feel I have some playoff potential so far, trying to keep that in mind. :banned:

I'll think back on this Draft as the one where Bell went 9th, and I picked 8th, so I had the last chance to get him. With our scoring rules and League format, RB's are all about total yards from scrimmage and TD's, with a nod to playing extra games. 16+ games worth of Bell vs the Steelers 2017 schedule is a frightening thing to consider. Eight of us (well 6, at least - I think Gronk and DJ were the 'correct' 1/2 overall selections) will be evaluating our decisions for quite some time.

1.08: Mike Evans, WR Bucs - I consider Evans to be the 'safest' elite level WR in 2017, just a shade ahead of Nelson. I grow increasingly concerned about Big Ben's home/road splits impacting Brown, Julio's foot, AJG's injuries, Andrew Luck (Hilton) and Beckham for reasons I'll discuss later. I'm not ready to call Michael Thomas or Cooper elite. I predict Evans will be the statistical leader at WR in 2017.

2.09: Jay Ajayi, RB Dolphins - 25th overall pick, thought he should have gone earlier, but he was the last remaining back I have in my sub-DJ/LevB/Zeke tier, so I passed on receptions to gain what I hope is a positional advantage at RB - total yards from scrimmage/TD's/moderate chance at postseason. Did what I felt I had to do.

3.08: Davante Adams, WR Packers - Owned Adams in 2014, traded him away in 2015. After watching 2016, I'm sold, and have Jordy-lite expectations. Should outscore plenty of NFL #1's as Packers #2. Checks all the boxes, including potential 3-4 game postseason strong possibility. Rodgers is one of few that can support more than 1 elite-level WR, and he's made it into the circle of trust. 16-Teamer, he's a borderline 1 and getting him in the middle of Rd 3 screamed value to me. Considered Crabtree. Didn't want 2 Dolphins, so Landry out. Too early to take Fitz, Pryor or Tate, who were leading my next tier.

4.09 Ty Montgomery, RB Packers - Knew I'd be losing ground at QB/TE if I went RB here, but picking in the middle is sometimes a blessing, and as I projected ahead, I felt pretty good about what would still be available at 5.08. I'm not worried about the backs they drafted. Hell, they had to do something at the position with Lacy and Starks gone. Monty grew on me as a RB last year, and with an offseason to prepare, well, I'm a big fan of Stanford kids and their football IQ's. Watching him, I agreed with commentators who said he had a RB body, with WR skills. I think he generates a ton of yards, given it's the Packers, there's plenty of opportunity for TD's, and postseason play is almost a given.

I like where I'm at right now, but that's probably going to change over the next few rounds.

1.03 - Antonio Brown (WR1)
Probably the safest pick there is. Almost a mortal lock for at least 100-1200-10 with upside for way more and playoff points. Averaged 374 points over the past 4 seasons. Would have taken him first overall.

2.14 - Brandin Cooks (WR11)
I am not concerned that there are a lot of mouths to feed. NE didn't need him and gave up a first to acquire him. All the evidence that I have seen reflects Cooks having a very good year with upside that others may dispute. If either Gronk or Edelman goes down (not exactly all that far fetched), Cooks could jump up to 100-1400-12 (or Brown-like numbers) with playoff points.

I don't see him doing worse than he did in NOS but he will likely have 3 more games played this year. If he produced at the same level as the Saints, that would put him around 300 points (or WR8 last year). I took him at WR11 (but I think he will produce somewhat better than that).

3.03 - DeMarco Murray (RB11)
I don't love Murray, but he should still produce around where I drafted him. I don't see him getting almost 350 touches again in the regular season like last year, but the Titans stand a decent chance of getting a playoff game or two. I took him at RB11. He ranked 7th last year. I wanted at least one decent RB, as the wait-forever-to-draft-running-backs strategy can lead to a really weak group of backs. Putrid, in fact.

4.14 - Colts TMQB (TMQB9)
Not a huge Colts fan (shocker) but not many TMQB's can score 500 points in a season, and this is one of them. Things sound a little precarious with Luck's shoulder right now, but this could be a monumental boost to my scoring if the real Luck shows up and stays healthy. Of course, he could be hurt all year and we could be watching Scott Tolzien most of the season. In which case my chances of winning drop dramatically.

5.03 - Jack Doyle (TE13)
Tight end run of 5 TE's in the 10-12 picks before me. Lots of picks forthcoming before my next pick, so I wanted to snag at least one decent one. With Allen traded to NE, one would think Doyle will see more targets, and the Colts seem to be in the mix to win the division. I initially didn't love this pick, but it's grown on me a little.

I am going to ask nicely . . . is there really a purpose at this point in calling out every time someone takes a long time to pick? We've pretty much covered that to death in all the Anarchy threads. JX13 technically didn't even go OTC until this morning. With the timer off, the system calculates wait times even on times when the timer would be turned off. I will make a pick for him, but can we please take a more muted tone to the draft delays?

This was my first post on the subject. I don't really care, it just stands out in contrast to everyone else. :shrug: 

Please don't make a pick for him due to my post.

5.7 Witten my third TE - just went ahead and completed the tight end sweep. I think all three of Rudolph, Walker and Witten can produce above their draft slot and all three have the potential of making the playoffs. I still hear Jim Mora in my head when I type playoffs.

So, we are only five rounds in and I have completed my roster at two positions, where should I head to now?

1.15 - Falcons, TMQB, ATL - 3rd TMQB drafted. Finished as #2 overall scorer in 2016, more than 50 points ahead of #3. That was largely because they made the Super Bowl, and, while that may not happen again, this should be a playoff team, with a solid chance at multiple playoff games. I never drafted a TMQB close to this early in Anarchy, so this is a new strategy.

2.2 - Jordy Nelson, WR, GB - 7th WR drafted. Finished as #3 WR in 2016. Also finished as #3 WR in 2014, with a season lost to injury in between. Surprised he lasted to this pick. This should be a playoff team, with a solid chance at multiple playoff games.

3.15 - Julian Edelman, WR, NE - 21st WR drafted. Since 2013, has only finished below WR #10 in total points in Anarchy format once (2015), and he was WR #8 in ppg in that season. Many seem to assume that Cooks will hammer Edelman's value, but I still see Edelman as the likely leader in WR targets if healthy. Also wanted a valuable piece of the NE passing game, and Brady, Gronk, and Cooks were all already gone. Expecting multiple playoff games. Great value here IMO.

4.2 - Michael Crabtree, WR, OAK - 22nd WR drafted. Finished as WR #14 last season, despite losing QB Carr for game 16 and the playoffs. Considered Fitz here, but took Crabtree because of seemingly greater probability of making the playoffs and playing more games.

5.15 - C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, HOU - 19th TE drafted. Finished as TE #13 last season in a mini 3rd-year breakout, that level of performance (59/630/5 in 17 games) seems repeatable, with mild upside beyond that. Solid chance at playoff game(s).

6.2 - Antonio Gates, TE, Chargers - 20th TE drafted. Finished as TE #15 last season, playing in just 14 games. I doubt he will repeat that, at least not if Henry stays healthy, but I also doubt his dropoff will be as pronounced as some think, if he stays healthy. He has great chemistry with Rivers, and his snaps were already reduced to primarily red zone and passing downs last season, so there is no reason to expect a further reduction in snaps (again, if he is healthy). Unfortunately, playoffs seem like a long shot. This is definitely a bit of a :homer: pick.

And in the 6th round at the 90th overall pick and 20th running back, I added my first running back, Mark Ingram. I am a little higher than most on Ingram this season. Only one staffer ranks him higher. For one, he has never been a bell cow and yes, he will lose carries to Peterson, but that is nothing new for Ingram. His career high in carries is 226 for a season. He rarely gets 20 rushes in a game, actually he has hit this mark only eight times in six NFL seasons. He has become a solid receiving back and has finished as RB15. RB15 and RB10 the past three seasons in non-ppr scoring and probably a little higher in ppr. Here, in Anarchy there is no ppr for running backs and I think that Ingram offered value at RB20. However, the opportunity for playoff games is definitely a long shot.

Do any of y'all agree or I am on an island this season with Ingram?

You took Ingram as RB21. He ranked RB10 last year and RB17 the year before. I would guess ADP knocks his production a little bit. So I think you probably bought at the right pricing point, but I don't see a ton of upside (like he has a breakout season and becomes a Top 5 back), nor do so I see him falling off a cliff. However, the bandwidth for running backs is so tight in that range, we could be debating something like 20 or 30 points over the course of an Anarchy season. Put another way, there may be other players at other positions that over a greater net scoring potential than some of the third tier RB's do. I don't know, I haven't really looked that closely at the numbers.

What has been the most surprising pick thus far?

Gordon and Howard going before McCoy and to an extent Ajayi....guess it's just personal preference after the big 3

I have a hard time takig Watkins at that point with some of the other options on the board

I guess my Hill pick was early

Diggs maybe getting more love than I am willing to give with other options out there still

I didn't say it was wrong. I was afraid it would cause a run and change the draft. It did. I had to move up and take mine at pick 2.

It was interesting. The first of many in this weird draft.

Biabreakable knows we adapt, improvise and overcome.

You are good for the league and I like your posting.

The Butt pick surprised me (make your own joke). He had ACL surgery on 01/10/17. Not sure when he will actually be able to play and will have to pick stuff up on the fly after having no OTA's, mini camp, training camp, practices, etc.

The two for me were Corey Davis and Jake Butt.

I am pleasantly surprised to be able to add WR Randall, the touchdown robber Cobb with my 7.7 selection as WR37. I know there are a lot of mouths to feed in Green Bay, but Cobb is an awesome slot guy when he is healthy. Excellent opportunity of extra playoff games for the Packers.

As a Cobb owner in regular leagues (in all the wrong years), thank you for taking him instead of me. I seemed to always get him in his injured or under performing years.

He salvaged last year with a huge post season, but without those points he was really, really ordinary. Of course, he should get playoff points, which is why he is worth more in these leagues than regular season leagues. He's ranked 24, 23, 4, 63, and 18 in Anarchy the past 5 seasons, so he is a decent value at WR 37. If I took him, he would be a disappointment. Since I didn't, we will probably blow up. So go ahead and thank me now for not drafting him.

ETA: He ranked 54th after the regular season but shot up to 24th after the post season.

ive almost pulled the trigger on Davis in these....I'm not sold that the Decker signing kills him....he may have enough pure talent to make people forget that Mathews, Sharpe, and Decker are even on the team....thats an exaggeration but I'm wouldn't be surprised if it was like Thomas joining Cooks/Sneed/etc.....

Not sure the Titans offense with Mariota is in the same class as the Saints offense with Brees, so I am not sure the outcomes will be similar. There has been a lot of debate in the Shark Pool as to how the Titans offense will shape up and if they will continue to ground and pound or if they will get less conservative and open up the passing game. I expect more passing, but not a monumental leap. TEN ranked 28th in attempts last year. Robiskie's offenses have ranked in the Bottom 5 in attempts in 7 years as an OC or HC. Mularkey's teams have also had 5 Bottom 5 rankings in attempts in 14 seasons, but he also had several seasons in the Top 10 (mostly with Atlanta).

ETA: He ranked 54th after the regular season but shot up to 24th after the post season.

I would have taken Cobb at 7.15 if he made it to me.

Was between Cobb and Blount for me on my last pick.  Opted for Blount because I really need a decent starting RB at this point over a WR5, even though Cobb would have been nice at that position. Was a tough decision.

Speaking of Blount, what sort of numbers are people projecting him for? Last year in NE was a huge outlier to every other season.  IIRC, the Eagles have had only one RB in the last 20 years get 10 rushing TD's.
