Yeah, I was pretty happy with it. This is my money league, too. Top 3 teams get money, winner gets $300. I'd be shocked if I didn't at least finish top 3.

Agree... you have to be the favorite

Of course, crazy things happen.

Yeah, my teams always look great after the draft, but get completely killed by injuries by week 7. so hopefully I get a bit of luck this year

you are probably going to dominate at RB. Forte is an average RB1 in most leagues, and he's your RB2. you probably have a 5-7 pt advantage at that poistion every week.

your receivers are good. Really good. Roddy White should see a dip due to Julio Jones becoming the #1 guy, but still a top target in a pass happy offense. Nelson seems to actually be trending up over last year. Desean Jackson should be a WR2, so you get good value of him as your #3.

Eli looks to be about average as far as starting QB's go, but depending on your scoring, could easilly go into the top 5. You should have an advantage about 2/3 of the time at that position, depending on matchups.

I don't really care about D or K, and unless you spend a low 1st/high 2nd on graham or gronk, TE is pretty much irrelevant.

looks good, though

Just found out I got the 10th of 12 in my league at work. Not thrilled.

1) Who would you rather take: Trent Richardson or Fred Jackson?

2) Is #29 overall too early to take Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis? I have the 1st selection in a 14 team draft. I'm thinking of taking him with the first pick in the 3rd round because I don't think he'll make it back around for me. I'd probably be passing on some pretty decent receivers to do so though.

3) Which Bronco WR has the better season: Demaryius Thomas or Eric Decker?

4) Aaron Rodgers first overall? Yay or nay?

5) Who is your sleeper TE?

6) Who is your sleeper RB?

7) What late round gamble are you taking?

1) Trent Richardson

2) Yes.

3) Decker

4) Yay

5) Martellus Bennett

6) Ahmad Bradshaw (Wilson effect overrated, no Jacobs, might be top 10)

7) Well, hard for there to be a "gamble" in a late round. I'd definitely roll the dice on Kenny Britt.

1. probably richardson. i see jackson's year last season as kind of a fluke.
2.you should be able to do better than BJGE
3.Thomas, imo
4.I maintain no. others say yes. both points have merit. i guess it depends largely on your league's scoring?
5. Tamme is coming off the board in the late rounds. could put up TE1 numbers if manning uses him like he did clark in indy. I've also seen people take Coby Fleener for similar reasons.
6.Stevan Ridley
7. I took Emmanuel Sanders on the off chance Wallace doesn't sign. I picked him up in the 13th rd.

Trent Richardson is going to be booty this year. Knee problems, playing from behind all year. And facing the AFC North 6 games.

7) What late round gamble are you taking?

1. I would take Fred Jackson, but I say that with 0% confidence. Flip a coin with this 2 imo.

2. Taking BGE #29 overall would most likely be the worse pick in the draft... Yuck. You should be snagging a Run-DMC or a Cruz type player then

3. See #1. I'd go Thomas, but flip a coin

4. No. Snag Foster (or your #1 rb)

5. Maybe not a "sleeper" at all (because I can't think of 1 here), but I like Hernendez more than most I think. He had an underrated season last year (3rd in TE's while missing 2 games), and despite Lloyd I think Pats are commited to the 2 TE's. Still... after Gronk / Graham its a lot of toss ups here.

6. For my starters I like to go with guys I'm confident in over the high-risk players. On my bench I say screw safe and go for high risk / high-upside hoping 1 works out (what's the point of drafting a guy you're confident will be the 35th best rb!). Guys that I starred on my little draft sheet because I wanted them on my bench - Beanie Wells, Rashard Mendenhall, Rashard Jennings

7. See above for my draft strategy.

1. Fred Jackson - Fantasy star in the making, don't let playing in Buffalo scare you away. This guy is going to be a steal in most drafts.

2. I would not take him in the 3rd round. You will be able to do better.

3. Decker

4. Are passing TDs = to rushing/receiving TDs? If yes then yes, if no then no.

5. Greg Olsen

6. Donald Brown

7. Brandon LaFell and/or Brandon Stokley

We just randomized the draft order (snake draft) for our 10 team league. I'm picking 2nd, which I'm extremely happy with. I honestly prefer 1st, 2nd, 9th, or 10th.

I pretty much have it in my head that I am going to take Rodgers if he's available at #2. For some reason, I'm somewhat leery taking a RB and then waiting until 17 to draft a QB. If Rodgers is taken at #1, do I take Brady at 2? Or Brees?

My opinion:

I honestly think Brees will be better, but I'd take Brady before Brees. Reason- (barring injury) I don't see any coneivable way that Brady won't put up Tom Brady numbers. I don't think it will happen, but there's a chance Brees will have slightly less #'s without his playcaller / head coach this year. I'm 97% sure Brees will be fine, but 100% sure on Brady... so I'd go Brady.

Solid team. I think Harvin is going to be a steal. I had my mind set on him being my number one receiver but you grabbed him two picks before me.

I just feel like there aren't really any TRUE elite no-risk RBs this year. Arian Foster is coming off a big year and lost his FB. Chris Johnson is still holding out. Adrian Peterson is on a terrible Vikings offense. I think the better strategy is to draft an elite QB, and pick up some mid-tier RBs in the 2nd and 3rd round.

In a 10 teamer I would not think twice about picking Rodgers at #2. I'd probably take Brady at #2 if Rodgers goes first.

7) What late round gamble are you taking?


1. Fred Jackson, he was awesome last year and Richardson is a rookie playing in the best defensive division in the NFL.

2. It's a little early but if RB's are flying off the board and not much is left I'd do it. WR is really deep and you can find guys in the 5/6/7 rounds who are serviceable, while most of the RBs then are a crapshoot.

3. I think Thomas, but really this seems like a coin flip scenario to me. Both will be good with Manning but either could emerge as his "#1"

4. It really depends on the league but in general I say yay. I know there's a big "dropoff" at RB more-so than QB but I just don't really trust any of the top RB's this year, whereas Rodgers, Brady, and Brees are as close to a "sure thing" as it gets. Obviously if you're in an 8 team PPR league or something you'd be more inclined to take Foster or Rice first.

5. Jacob Tamme

6. Ryan Williams

7. I wouldn't be afraid to grab Terrell Owens with one of my last picks, even if he's old he could still put up decent numbers.
