Mike Anderson Draft Tracking Thread (1 Viewer)

Mungo Burrows

Footballguy
I know, like we need another Mike Anderson thread... Just hear me out.

It seems the perception of Mike Anderson is finally changing, particularly after this weekend. It is likely to make most ADP information worthless, even if it's only a week or two old. I thought we could use the collective knowledge and experiences of these boards to help out anyone with drafts still to come with this rapidly changing situation.

When is he really getting drafted now?

Please post the following information regarding the drafting of Anderson so we can keep up to date on when he is being drafted now.

Date of Draft:

Number of teams:

Round.Pick selected:

# at RB (e.g., RB25):

Optional information:

Rough characterization of your league (Sharks, Gups, mix, etc):

When was Tater Bell taken?

Other comments to add:

I think the most useful information is for those who drafted after this past Saturday's game, but some over the weekend or the end of last week could be useful as well. Just remember to include the date.

Rough characterization of your league (Sharks, Gups, mix, etc): Mix but several sharks.

When was Tater Bell taken? Tater was taken in the 4th round

Other comments to add: I asked after the draft and a few people didn't realize he was named starter over bell and didn't catch his stats from Saturday night.

I was happy he fell that far to me. If he keeps the starting job, it will be a steal for me. But I'm not counting on him as he is my RB4.

# at RB (e.g., RB25): not sure, but if I got him in the 7th, at least 20 RB's went before him

Optional information:

Rough characterization of your league (Sharks, Gups, mix, etc): about 9 sharks, 1 guppy, 3 who have passable fantasy acumen)

When was Tater Bell taken? 4th

Other comments to add: It was common knowledge that Anderson was 'the man' in Denver, so I thought I had no shot to get him. Lo and behold, look who was waiting for me in the 7th. I chose him and no less than 6 people cursed me. The Bell pick came from a guy who lives in London, so I'm not sure if he heard the news yet about the Denver RB situation.

Other comments to add: Well, it was quite obvious that everyone saw the Saturday night game as I've seen Bell go in the 2nd (2.02 in a Thursday draft that I got MA in the 14th) previously, only to fall to the end of the 6th here. LJ went 6.09 to the guy drafting right before the Priest owner... positive proof that if you want to handcuff Priest/LJ, you'd better do it in the 5th.

Optional information:

Rough characterization of your league (Sharks, Gups, mix, etc):sharks

When was Tater Bell taken? 3.05 (23rd RB, including keepers)

Other comments to add: This is a PPR league where you can start either 3 RB/3 WR or 2 RB/4 WR, so RBs are a little less valuable.

EDITED because I forgot about the keepers.

I got Anderson in the 16th round of a 10 team league.....the draft was before his recent big performance.Question for those who saw the game...Anderson had what a 90+ yard touchdown...did he look fast? I was very suprised to hear of such a long run from MA.

He looked faster than anyone expected. He had three Indy defenders within 5 yards of him while he was still on Denver's side of the 50, and it looked like they would catch him, but he put it into another gear and stayed ahead of them the whole way. He didn't blow them away but he was fast enough.

our draft is next week (9/6). it's a 12-team, 2 player keeper and i'm positive MA will go in the first round (equivalent of a 3rd rounder) after his last performance. i've heard league-mates say "how can you pass up the #1 RB for denver?!"

The owner who took him had seen his performance in the last preseason game and decided to pull the trigger once his starting job was secure.I got LJ at 4.4. According to another owner, he would not have lasted to my next pick (5.9).

I argued the fact he is goign to start and the guy who drafted Tatum took MY backup! So at 830, the draft is over and Mike anderson already had 100+ rushing yards and 1 TD. Funny how a 1 carry 3 yard performacne can shut people up.Wether or not Anderson STAYS as the starter I do not know... but it was nice to tell the loud mouth to shut up... you know NOTHING.

Denver homer 10 team league. We had the game on TV while we were drafting. Anderson went at 72 overall and Bell went 73 to me. I am at work right now so I can't check what #RB they were. The League is a mix of sharks and ameutures.

RB 31Other comments to add: This might have been a little early for him but I don't think we have a clear ADP for him yet, so I don't have a good idea on when he's usually going. Besides, most of the drafts I've been in so far haven't really followed any logical ADP. So if you want somebody, you better just pull the trigger. Going with Moss in the first round compromised my RB depth. But since this league is a start 1RB, 3WR with a flex RB/WR, I felt I could draft Moss in the first, RB in the second....and I thought I could grab Anderson/Bell with my 4th/6th rounds picks and was able to do it. I felt he/them provided the most upside of any RB by a large margin. It hurt my overall draft at RB because I had use 2 mid picks to secure them and don't really have a strong RB3...but the Denver RB situation tends to really produce...and if it holds true this year, I have a great flex RB to plug in. Bye weeks are another issue. :ph34r:

I got him last night with pick 9.9 :eek: . 10 team redraft, ESPN rules. Some sharks, some guppies. I would characterize the draft as tough in the first 2 to 3 rounds, and softer in the mid-rounds. Bell was taken in round 5 or 6 from my hazy recollection by a not-as-informed owner.

2.26 in a 13 team, total points league (draft done on 8-28)RB dominated league scoring wise, he was the 19th RB chosen. The owner had selected S. Alexander at 1.1. Leauge is competitve, good owners in general. I thought he went a little earlyI got him at 8.6 in an ESPN instadraft on 8-16-05.

Not yetOther comments to add: It's kind of an odd start 2 QBs league, which partially explains why he dropped so low. It's got an unique scoring system that I personally like a lot, but it tends to make your starting QBs almost as valuable your starting RBs. Starting 2 also means there are tons of QBs taken in the early rounds so you can get at least 3 starters. Also, we have 1 Keeper allowed, and those 7 or 8 kept RBs are included in the number of RBs before MA listed above.

We drafted August 27 (Right before his 94 yard touchdown run).16 team league with three keepers, so first player drafted is actually No 49.Tatum Bell was kept, and I ended up with mike at 2.5 (69th player taken). Fred Taylor, Mwelde Moore, Travis Henry, and all of the rookie running backs were taken before Mike.Mildly interested that the Bell owner had 3 picks before 2.5 and declined to take him.As I said, he snapped off his 94 yard run about a half hour after we completed the first half of the draft. If the draft had been held the next day, I have no doubt that he would have been the first non-rookie taken.

I think we need to face facts. Mike Anderson is a legit 4th round pick. If you wait past there, you're letting someone else benefit. His potential is even higher than that. I took him today at 4.07 in a 10-team redraft. FBG now project him higher than that. Bring on the season!... :boxing: (translation: I just got a 3nd round pick at the end of the fourth round). :yes:

I targeted LJ at 4.09, a round earlier than I had previously planned. LJ went 3 picks before mine, so I grabbed Witten (1.5 PPR for TE) and then a 5.04 took Anderson as my FLEX/RB3 behind Priest and Westbrook in a PPR league.The LJ thing backfired, but if MA puts up the points as the RB1 in Denver, it will ease the pain of missing out on LJ if Priest is not producing because of RBBC or injury.B.

Drafted 9/1 and took him at 4.3 in a 10 team league. The league is mostly mixed with sharks and guppies. I'd have taken him at 3.8 but the two teams behind me already had 2 RBs and Anderson and L. Jordan were still left so I'd have been happy with either. T. Bell went at 6.7 I believe. I'd guess that Anderson was about the 20th RB taken or so. I have him ranked MUCH higher, but waited because I felt he'd likely still be there by at least my 3rd pick. This enabled me to draft Moss and McAllister with my 1st two picks. Good luck!

Exploring various draft scenarios from the #1 pick slot. Most likely at picks 2.12 & 3.01, I'll have a shot at the last of the top 19 RBs as well as 1 of the Top 5 WRs.The scenario I'm exploring is if there's a run on RBs in the first 23 picks, and all 19 are gone, do I take Mike Anderson and 1 of the Top 5 WRs? Or double up on the top tier WRs?This is not a question about drafting strategy regarding 2 RBs vs. 2 WRs. It's a question about whether I should take MA at 3.01 even though it's earlier than he likely should go from an ADP perspective.The flip side is that he won't be there when I pick again at 4.12.But, Mike Anderson, on my list, is #20. I think he should go no later than the late 3rd round. So is taking him at 3.01 that big of a reach?
