Man what to do...I have the 3rd pick in a 10 team league draft tonight. No dynasty, 4 points per QB TD (although that is irrelevant), etc. I'm thinking QB is my lowest priority and I just want to overload on RBs and WRs. I feel like 2-6 this year is a total crapshoot.

Yeah, in a 10 team league, I wouldn't take a QB till round 7 or 8. I'd just go for Romo or Stafford.

So here's my 10 team draft (no PPR, only 4 pts for QB TD)

I should add I drafted Newton in the 4th round, and didn't mean to. Short draft timer caught up to me.

Anyone do the ESPN College Football Challenge? Basically FF for NCAA, except you can pick anyone you want and build a different team each week. My friends have a group and want me to join but I don't know if it seems fun or not. I didn't know anything about it until 45 minutes ago

I'm going to try my hardest this year to not draft any injured (or seriously injured last year) players. I always draft people that are injured or holding out because their stock drops so much in the drafts that i think to myself, "heck, that's a good deal!" and then the injuries either get worse or i get impatient and drop them. so off the list this year: RGIII, Bell, and people similar to those two.

Pretty much. IIRC Brandon Lloyd was being drafted far earlier in the draft than Thompkins, who is a similar player.

I just don't know how much heartbreak can be involved in drafting a player at the tail end of a draft. He certainly has far more upside than most 13th or 14th round picks.

Thompkins will finish ahead of Amendola in non-PPR leagues. Book it!

Wow yeah, no way I touch him that early. As a flier late yes, but not any earlier than I'd say tail end of the 11th if you really want to reach.

1. If we're saying both are healthy no

2. This is the real world and Danny is already banged up...

I'd have to have odds to "book it"
