Haha, no.. 10 team league. Dynasty, I guess I went more "win now" than other teams.

Also, I loaded up on Wrs while everyone kept selecting rbs at terrible value. (Had Megatron, D. Thomas, Fitzgerald, Maclin, Stevie Johnson, Michael Floyd) at wr.. and the old Sprolles, Gore at rb followed by a bunch of scrubs.

Despite how deep wrs are, some teams ended up not looking too hot at wrs... was able to get some decent value. Neither of my trades were really rip-offs, but I liked both for my team.

Traded Gore, D. Thomas for Rice

Then in 3 way-deal.. I gave up Calvin and got Cruz, Lynch

Heading to lunch and the rest of the afternoon will be devoted to draft prep for tonight. Any advice for a guy with the #1 pick, where the draft board snakes around and I'll have back to back picks the rest of the way? I'm gonna go RB 1st two rounds and sit back and wait for a QB. I bit on a QB way way too early last year and there was no need too.

1. ADP #1 overall, I really don't see any other option IMO.

2. Obviously, rbs are the most valuable and qbs least, but I say don't "pin" yourself to a strategy. Go BPA a bit extreme of example, but let's say... the first 19 picks are all rbs.. Are you still going to go RB with Calvin Johnson sitting there?

That being said, yes chances are avoid rbs, but it seems like every draft I end up doing things I thought I wouldn't just because most drafts aren't completely predictable. I think being adjustable and going for value is the best way imo

Oh and I know. I'm not going to stick to a plan no matter what but that's what I have mapped out and I'll adjust. I've just never had the #1 pick in an league and didn't know if theres a certain advantage to take when you're getting those back to back picks, if any. And yes, ADP will be first off the board.

Hmmm... none that I can think of really, other than the obvious of having to wait as a ton of players may disappear, but then being able to pick back to back. I guess it kind of affects what some people do of "Ughhh, I really like this guy, but I think I can get him next round anyways so I'll hold off." Odds are that guy is gone

Not a strategy concern obviously, but I always get kind of bored waiting on the end of rounds for so long

Looks pretty good to me. I have a hard time rating teams right after the drafts though. Most look pretty good. Your Rbs are obviously a huge advantage.

GREAT pick in getting Sprolles. Man does he fall WAY too far in some PPR leagues

Just drafted my Keep 2 league. What do you guys think?

PPR, 6 pts per passing td

Brees
Peterson, Ivory, D. Williams, Hillman, Woodhead
A. Johnson, White, V. Jackson, Garcon, M. Williams, K. Wright
Myers
Patriots
Gostowski

Rookie Keepers: (Can keep a rookie, without counting against your keepers until you play them. REALLY not planning to play either, but I guess I can see a scenario if Lacy is tearing up and Ivory busts... still not likely).

If where you're showing Hillman is late in the draft he could end up being a real steal for you. Right now at least he's been getting all the first team reps. Even for all the Montee Ball hype Hillman has been the guy so far AND lets not forget that when Moreno got his shot last year he performed very well. I really like the Hillman pick.

Yea, Hillman / Brees are the only players I own in both of my leagues (will shoot for him again when I have my third draft) so I'm right there with you. I got him round 12 (once you add in 2 keepers for everyone... rookie keepers from previous years (7 of them) and rookies this year its really like round 15 or 16) , I value him much higher but was playing a dangerous waiting game that worked out.

Goalie categories are completely separate from skater categories. Having an extra QB adds another high scoring position that has a propensity to output massive points. It drastically increases the significance luck has on scoring.

I see it as simply adding more importance to a position that has, traditionally, been less important than other positions. With the projections that are out there this year for the top 12 QBs, I think its easy to see how there could be some appeal to adding a second QB slot. If the top 12 QBs are relatively (as compared to other positions) interchangeable, adding a second slot ought to make it less about luck, right?

I think that QB is the most volatile position in any given game. QBs already carry too much weight in fantasy. QBs are less important because they all score more points than every other position. Doubling up on it just pushes it even further that way. They're way more likely to surprisingly generate a ton more or less points than any other position and therefore more random. I just think the idea of increasing that randomness defeats the purpose of playing fantasy.

Who would you guys take with the second overall pick in a 12 team .5 PPR league? Obviously ADP will be gone, so I'm not 100 percent sure who I want to select.

This might be the best option because I don't really see any big difference between RB's 2-5 in my rankings. I've never traded draft picks before so what would be fair value to move down a couple spots? Swapping firsts, then picking up an extra 5th or something?

He's a top 5 pick so not much, BUT if we're going to nitpick (using all standard numbers)

He scored 37% of his fantasy points last year in his MONSTER week 8 & 9.

He averaged 11 ppg the rest of the season. (15.5 ppg if you include those games).

His 11 ppg would have got him 12th overall in fantasy rbs, not the 2nd he finished

Now its completely unfair to just throw out that crazy 2 week stretch (why he's a top 5 pick), but when it comes down to a guy who rode one of the greatest 2 game stretches ever, to Foster who's just been dominant for years... I have to go Foster

Didn't know this was an option.. I'd try to do it too then. In most years, yes that'd probably work. This year, idk if you'll have many bidders since most people feel this way. That being said you can try and see what's the best offer you can get, who knows... someone might LOVE one rb
