How many of your starters today... (1 Viewer)

It struck me this morning that in my 9 slot lineup, only 2 players were guys that I drafted. I don't consider myself someone who makes a ton of moves either.

5 of my 9 starters were WW pickups, and 2 starters were acquired via trade. Only Randy Moss and Packers D (my first and last round draft picks!) are in my lineup this first week of the playoffs.

How much are you relying on your drafted guys today, versus those you obtained elsewhere?

 
Five of my nine starters today I drafted:

Gore - 1st round

Fitzgerald - 2nd round

Calvin Johnson - 4th round

Cutler - 7th round

Slaton - 11th round

I drafted Warner in the 12th round and traded him for Steven Jackson back in week 4. We'll see if it pays off today. It sure hasn't so far.

 
6 out of 9.

Lance Moore/Waivers

DeAngelo Williams/Trade

Jeremy Shocky/Trade

I've thought about this question many times...in fact, I am in a six man keeper league where I am already playing without Tom Brady and Carson Palmer; and many weeks without Ryan Grant or Wes Welker. Only Brian Westbrook and Thomas Jones are guarenteed starters from my keepers, and I still made the playoffs by finishing strong.

I have a number of players acquired by trade (because of the QB injuries); including QB starters Brett Favre and Matt Cassel.

My draft contributed the following starters: Jason Witten (Round 1), Chris Johnson (Round 3), Tennesee Defense (Round 10), Eddie Royal (Round 11). Note I had traded away my 4th-9th round picks, so this was a good draft for me. My lone miss was Rashard Mendenhall, though I had traded him before his injury!!! :goodposting:

Free Agency contributed the following: Ted Ginn (when another dropped) and Jay Feely.

Draft contributed just 4/10 guys.

 
This thread just made me realize that my draft sucked.

1 Westbrook

2 J Lewis

3 Edwards

4 Palmer

5 Boldin

6 Harrison

7 Winslow

8 Kevin Smith

9 Galloway

10 Eli

11 Burleson

12 Kevin Jones

13 Cowboys D

14 Betts

15 Ben Watson

16 Dawson

17 Brandon Jackson

Bold are on my roster. Only 7 out of 17. I am only starting westbrook and boldin. Again my draft sucked. I am fortunate to be 8-5 and in the playoff hunt. :lmao:

 
Nice topic.

7 out of 9 position players for me. The other two were acquired via trades. I've had last waiver priority all year!!!

 
Great thread. Annoying as in one league I'm facing a guy who is pretty much pickups. (so much for the importance of a draft... too few rounds). I'm pretty much starting the team a team I drafted...

QB - Manning (benching Rodgers)

RB - Lynch/CJohnson

WR - Bowe/Moss

TE - Witten

D - TB

in another league:

QB -

RB - ADP

WR - Boldin, Evans

TE -

K -

D- Min

 
14/17

I am in an IDP league. IDP is dynasty and offense is redraft. Five of my IDP were drafted over the last 2 years.

 
7 of 9

I traded two draftees Cotchery & L. White for Colston & I'm starting Prater (a pickup) instead of Folk (draftee) based on the matchup.

 
5 of 9, which seems pretty typical. #1 seed in 14-team league. Drafted ADP, Brees, Megatron, CJ3, Jacobs. Stockpiled depth, traded it for Steve Smith, T Gonz, and NYG (weak bench now, hoping everyone stays healthy). Throwing darts at WW for kicker.

 
8/15

In-season pick-ups:

Tyler Thigpen

Dustin Keller

Matt Bryant

Stephen Cooper

Yeremiah Bell

Quintin Mikell

Buff Special Teams

 
Drafted: Gore, T Jones, and Marshall. Debating starting TO and Cutler who I drafted.

WW: Warner, Colts D, and Bryant

Trades: Welker, Colston, Daniels.
