  1. 6.12 Aaron Rodgers GBP QB6 7.01 Justin Herbert LAC QB7 For better or worse, my 6-7 double-tap will go a long way toward determining my success in this draft. Even if they just marginally outperform their draft slots, I could well wind up with 600 points from the QB position, which will hide a lot of warts. With 25 rounds at play, it was tough to resist burning a late-rounder on a QB3, but the me who doubled up early made the week-later me swear not to give into the temptation, so here we are. 1.01 McCaffrey, Christian CAR RB1 5.01 Travis Etienne ROOK RB22 11.01 Duke Johnson HOU
  2. 6.12 Mr. Irrelevant Rodgers, Aaron GBP QB 10:37:00 p.m. 7.01 Mr. Irrelevant Herbert, Justin LAC QB 10:37:10 p.m. This is either the most brilliant 6-7 turn in recent FBG draft history, or the dumbest. I have no idea which.
  3. right ... so instead of 2/1 the ratio is 1/0.75 = 1.33. Definitely clearer ways I could have phrased that ... this is probably why my wife is the math teacher instead of me.
  4. 1.01 McCaffrey, Christian CAR RB1 - Not much to say here - still the best all-around back in the game. 2.12 Kittle, George SFO TE3 - Being able to start up to 3 means the opportunity cost of drafting TE early is much lower than in our traditional survivor so, despite going from a 2x reception premium to 1.33x, the value impact is being overstated IMO. I'd have considered 24th overall good value for Kittle even with no TE premium at all. 3.01 Brown, A.J. TEN WR9 - The Titans are never gonna be a team that slings it 650 times a year ... so while AJB is as talented as any WR in the gam
  5. Hadn't checked back here the past couple days so I just saw @rzrback77’s note about being around early ... just kicked things off. @OldMilwaukee is OTC.
  6. You're always good with giving feedback on other teams so I try to return the favor once in a while. Not much to say at QB. Mahomes vs. an average QB1 gives you a ~5ppg head start right out of the chute. A QB3 would have been setting a draft pick on fire. Zeke / Pollard is a nice example of the flexibility you get from the two extra slots in these 20-rounders (cough cough, this should be the survivor default, cough cough). Should combine for a top-6 or so RB1. Never been a big Montgomery fan - just feel he's OK at everything and great at nothing - in best-ball I'd definitely have thr
  7. 13.08 Rodrigo Blankenship IND PK8 - Every time I watch the Colts’ FG unit come out on the field, I’m reminded of Matt Damon in The Accountant. I’m not saying that’s the reason I drafted Blankie … but I’m not saying it’s not. 14.09 Darrell Henderson LAR RB56 - Having started off RB-RB, I didn’t plan to stock much depth (if Barkley or Jones go down for the duration, I’m screwed regardless). So if I only have a couple backups, I might as well grab talent and pray for opportunity. The Rams’ acquisition of Stafford should mean fewer stacked boxes in 2021, and Akers hasn’t exactly been the pict
  8. Totally unscientific sample, but IMO the teams that go out Week 1 tend to fall into two buckets: owners that loaded up on rookies and FAs, who generally start off slow as they adjust to new surroundings; and teams that just roll snake eyes on the injury dice before September even rolls around, which no one can do anything about.
  9. 9.08 Jeff Wilson Jr. SF RB39 - Tough spot here as my top 3 options (Shenault, Higbee, Smith) went in the literal 3 picks before mine. Rest of the TEs and WRs look pretty interchangeable to me, so that leaves Wilson, a guy with a nose for the end zone on a team losing half its RB room to FA whose current #1 has missed 17 games the last 3 seasons. In theory a good candidate to draft an elite RB, but as they haven’t spent a Day 1 or 2 pick there since 2014 I’ll roll the dice on JWJ still having a substantial role. 10.09 Gerald Everett LAR/UFA TE24 - I thought for sure my sleeper Kmet would m
  10. For some strange reason, the very first thing that popped into my head when I read this phrase was Chip Kelly, sitting in the cab of a backhoe in his backyard, clearing space for those gigantic picture postcards he used to hold up on the Eagles' sideline.
  11. Done. ETA: and nice grab of Slayton coming back. If he's going in this range all summer and the Giants go after Pitts instead of a top WR, he'll be on a lot of my teams.
  12. Personally, if I were in Wentz' shoes I'd go full Kamara, call myself a fullback, and find a number in the 40s before I ever put on a #11 jersey again. I'm not superstitious, but if I'm making a clean break, it's gonna be soup-to-nuts.
  13. We've had 5 even-numbered rounds so far, and @Stinkin Ref has taken the exact guy at the top of my draft list 4 out of 5 times. I WANT REF'S DRAFT SLOT AWAY FROM MINE IN PDSL. FAR, FAR AWAY. kthx
  14. Don’t feel bad. Smith wasn’t making it past me if NM didn’t take him. I literally had him, Higbee and Shenault in my top-3 predraft spots. Speaking of
  15. 6.09 Mike Gesicki MIA TE13 - I'll probably wait on TE in most of my drafts this year, so a good chance I'll wind up with multiple shares of this guy. The lightbulb finally seemed to go on for Gesicki in the back half of 2020, and with his freakish physical gifts and continued growth from Tua (spoiler alert!) he's got as good a chance at a top-5 season as anyone else at this God-forsaken position. 7.08 Jerry Jeudy DEN WR42 - Another bet on the WR youth movement. He went five picks later than in last year's WSL despite recording 53/764 at age 21 with the barely competent Drew Lock at QB, an
  16. 4.09 Kyler Murray ARI QB5 - Past experience in survivors has taught me that it's fine to wait on QB or TE, but rarely on both - and there's no one who stands out at the latter position at all for me here. Kyler finished QB5 last season despite spending the last few weeks as obviously hobbled as Kirk Gibson in the '88 World Series. At his size, injury is more than likely an ongoing risk, but at full health he's one of a small handful of names with overall QB1 upside. 5.08 Tee Higgins CIN WR27 - Another thing survivors have taught me: don't worry too much about rankings or ADP this early on
  17. 4.10 Norseman Thomas, Logan WAS TE Grrrr. I was probably going Kyler at 4.09 regardless, but it helped I was reasonably confident Thomas would make it back to me in the 5th. Nice pick.
  18. I know it's early - really early - but I'm shocked at the value available in the #40-50 overall range this year. Normally in the equivalent of the 4th round of a 12-teamer you're looking at committee backs and WRs with either lower ceilings or lots of question marks. But Dobbins? McLaurin? Both of the Bucs' stud WRs? If as a group the 3rd round of this draft outperforms the 2nd round I won't be the least bit surprised. 1.08 Saquon Barkley NYG RB4 - After Cook you can throw the next 6 names in a hat and draw one IMO. All the talent in the world and with almost a full year to recover from h
  19. Done. Thanks so much for sniping my predraft pick. I'll probably regret passing on Thomas ... but I have zero confidence in Hill as a starting QB and zero confidence that Payton won't try to make it work regardless. Meanwhile I don't see too many destinations Jones could land where he wouldn't be a consensus top-10 RB. Now watch him become a Jaguar ...
  20. Probably not, but there’s always D’Marcus, DeSquarius and D’Glester.
  21. Not that anyone asked but, since I love to hear myself talk, I'm in favor of three things for this WSL iteration: Keeping the schedule the same as prior years despite the addition of Week 18. It'd be different if this was a total-points format, but no league should have its winner decided on a week when the best players on the best teams are most likely to sit. Expanding rosters to 22. I get that survivor is supposed to be a war of attrition, but there's a big difference between that and being effectively out of the running by Memorial Day. Plus it's always fun to earn a couple ext
  22. Add me to the chorus who thinks Godwin is underpriced at 10. I can't think of too many dynasty scenarios where as an Adams or Nuk owner I wouldn't take Godwin straight up. I want to say the same about Golladay but TBH I had no idea he was a couple weeks from turning 27, so in that light what I'd be willing to offer is probably an overpay. Others I'd be buying at these prices: Chark, Diontae / Claypool, Hardman, Edwards, Duvernay, Hurd, Boykin, Auden Tate. I'd be selling: Amari, A-Rob, Boyd, Parker, Landry, Fuller, Lazard, Kirk, M. Williams, Cooks (who's definitely not a Ram any more,
