My big money draft
Sat Sep 03, 2016 2:09 pm
  • Not really, but at $50 it is compared to my other leagues. Plus, this really is the only one I care about...so here it is. I feel I started out ok, but I generally lose it at about the 8th round as far as who I want. My only real reaches were Rawls and Lockett because of my draft position, everyone else was pretty much off of ADP for my pick.

    Oh, I was 12th pick in a 12 man PPR league.

    QB Luck
    WR1 Baldwin
    WR2 M. Floyd
    RB E. Elliott
    TE Witten
    Flex1 Rawls
    Flex2 Lockett
    K Hauschka
    D Vikings

    Diggs
    Yeldon
    C. Michael
    Winston
    Sanu
    Cameron
    Boyd

  • So you took Zeke at 12... who on that roster did you take at 13?

    Rawls. I knew he wouldn't be there when it came back around.

  • Well, if you have that much faith in Rawls I can't criticize the pick... I just never would have taken him that high. I'd also recommend picking up another TE. Is Jesse James available on the wire?

  • Honestly, I don't really like your team.

    You definitely reached on Rawls big time. You took him about 20 spots ahead of his ADP and your roster reflects that.

    Not a huge fan of having two Seahawk WR's in your lineup.

    Not a big fan of drafting Luck early.

    I generally homer pick in this league, mainly because it's old friends who've been doing this for years. I don't care if I win, and if I beat people with mostly Seahawk players it's even better.

    Also, I generally don't heed ADP, because if I did then I may as well just auto-draft, which is BORING!

    Edit: I grabbed Lockett because we get TD's for returns. I also think he's going to explode this year as a WR.

    Well in that case, you did just fine. That's the great thing about fantasy, you can make it your own. At least you are not a Browns fan, then your team would have been: RG3, Duke Johnson, Gary Barnidge and Terrell Pryor :lol:

    True. We do have a couple Eagles fans, and one of them Homer picks as bad as me.

  • Your receivers are really weak for PPR, sorry bud. I also am in a 12 man PPR league and I completely stayed away from any Seahawk players. The problem with our team is that Wilson tends to spread the ball around.

    Also with Romo out Witten is a much weaker prospect IMO.

    I picked Witten because he'd be Dak's safety blanket, IMO. Dude still has great hands and can get open.
