High Rollers Fantasy Football League - Fees/Keepers due on 8/4. Draft starts on 8/18.

This s**t is depressing for the 2nd year in a row missing the playoffs. Only league out of 6 I did not make it. Tough competition here... Overall my draft really just blew balls! Can we please start 2-3 weeks later next year?

1. (3) Chris Ivory (NYJ - RB) - Yeah everyone can just STFU
2. (9) James Jones (GB - WR) - Looked pretty good till injured
3. (22) Eddie Lacy (GB - RB) - Bar none my best pick of the draft (Brandon Merriweather really f**ked it up early for me)
4. (46) Anquan Boldin (SF - WR) - Looked promising after week one then vanished
5. (51) Jared Cook (StL - TE) - ^ Same - took a different route to the Land of OZ
6. (70) Houston (Hou - DEF) - What a crock of s**t
7. (75) Joseph Randle (Dal - RB) - Thought Murray would get hurt and this guy would step in
8. (94) Matt Schaub (Hou - QB) - Ran out of town
9. (99) Blair Walsh (Min - K) - Meh
10. (117) Michael Bush (Chi - RB) - Barely saw the field
11. (122) Vance McDonald (SF - TE) - Well I picked him then immediately dropped him for someone else soon as the draft ended.

Yahoo grade: A-. Maybe the "A" was a typo and it just supposed to be "-"
Picking on Miles was probably my favorite part of this year.
I was projected to go 1-12. Wow f**k you Yahoo

You were pretty ruthless
If you look at the draft, it was fairly meaningless. It was all about your keepers and waiver pick ups.

Round 1 - Vincent Jackson (A+, only 1st rounder to put up more points was Russell Wilson)

Round 2 - Steve Smith (C, ended up being just a 3rd WR or 4th WR. Few picks later Eric Decker was picked....)

Round 3 - Danario Alexander (B, Yes I don't think this was a bad pick. Had he stayed healthy, he would have been a top 10 WR. Of course a week later he was injured and out for the year....It was a gamble, but IMO it was still a good pick to try for)

Round 4 - Brandon Myers (D, ended up being the 16th TE and not even worth a roster spot. Meanwhile a few picks later Josh Gordon was picked....)

Round 5 - Traded for Stevan Ridley (B+, yes in hindsight this is an F. But at the time I think it was a wise trade)

Round 6 - Chris Givens (F, 500 yards receiving and zero touchdowns on the year....)

Round 7 - Kendall Hunter (D, Should have went with my gut and picked Zac Stacy....)

Round 8 - Josh Boyce ( , F)

Round 9 - Jacquizz Rodgers (A, pretty good value for a 9th rounder. Only Alshon Jeffrey scored more points out of players taken in the 9th)

Round 10 - Carson Palmer (C, meh)

Round 11 - Pit D/ST and Kyle Williams (D).

My team failed because other than McCoy, my Keepers were not Keepers.

Remember when you thought I was nuts for keeping DeMarco Murray? 7th among all RBS in total points even with missing a couple of games. He was a good keeper as it turns out. Sadly, Marshall and Murray turned out to be my only 2.

I got him on Facebook last night. Lol. He was bragging in his fantasy predictions, I reminded him of Chris Ivory

I do remember and I still hate Murray
A huge reason for my success was that I had a very good draft IMO.

1. Marques Colston (B) - didn't put up the WR1 numbers I was hoping for, but he hasn't been too bad either.
2. Antonio Brown (A+) - ranks 3rd in the NFL in receptions and receiving yards to go with 8 TD's, wish I wouldn't have traded him.
3. Tony Gonzalez - (B+) - 71 receptions for 740 yards and 7 TD's not bad for a 37-year old, slightly better production than Colston.
4. DeSean Jackson - (A+) - I went into my drafts targeting this guy for a huge season with Chip's offense and a contract year and he did not disappoint.
5. DeAngelo Williams - (B+) - I also went into draft targeting DeAngelo knowing Stewart would be out for awhile. I knew there would be volume there, not bad for a RB3.
6. Mark Ingram (F) - epic fail.
7. Justin Blackmon - (B) - He was everything I thought he'd be coming off the suspension, so good that I chose to trade Antonio instead of him for Andre Johnson, but I didn't see his dumbass failing more drug tests. Ugh.
8. Denarius Moore - (C+) - he was solid for a little bit but never quite the sleeper I though he might be.
9. EJ Manuel - (D-) this was a low risk pick, and didn't last long on my roster, but he was a disappointment regardless.
10. Patriots (B+) - my team defense all season long until I dumped them this week.
11. Michael Crabtree - (D) I gambled thinking he'd be put on return IR and I'd be able to stash him in the IR slot. Meh.

I haven't looked at everybodys, but might be best draft. Colston + Gonzalez + Antonio Brown + DeSean Jackson + DeAngelo is really solid

good draft and no major injuries will equal success

meh the overall points scored/against is a bit misleading. I think its more interesting to see who got lucky or unlucky on a given week (ie scores in top 6 for points but gets outscored).

Like Week 7 I'd be bad beat while Rabbit would be a lucky win for scoring 7th most points but still getting a W.

Week 6 Bad Beat - Sprint Right Option; Lucky Win - Lynch Lucked Out

Week 5 Bad Beat - Ron Mexico, Crzy; Lucky Win - Montana to Rice, Boise

Week 4 Bad Beat - Crzy, Ron Mexico ; Lucky Win - Lynch Lucked Out, LA

Week 3 - All the teams that should have won and loss did

Week 2 Bad Beat - Rubber, Crzy; Lucky Win - Rabbit, Red Rose

Week 1 Bad Beat - SunDevil; Lucky Win - LA

Bad Beats on the Year:
Crzy - 3
SunDevil - 2
Ron Mexico - 2
Rubber - 1
Sprint Right Option - 1

Lucky Wins
LA - 2
Rabbit - 2
Lynch Lucked Out - 2
Red Rose - 1
Montana to Rice - 1
Boise - 1

Standings if the teams that should have won did, but due to scheduling lost:
1. RonMexico 6-1
2. Rabbit 5-2
3. LA 5-2
4. Crzy 5-2
5. RedRose 4-3
6. Montana to Rice 3-4
7. Rubber 3-4
8. SunDevil 3-4
9. Sprint Right Option 3-4
10. Boise 2-5
11. Carrots 2-5
12. Lynch Lucked Out 1-6


Adjusted records:
1. RonMexico 10-3
2. Crzy 10-3
3. Llama 9-4
4. vrabbit 8-5
5. Montana to Rice 8-5
6. Boise 7-6
7. Carrots 6-7
8. Rubs 6-7
9. RedRose 5-8
10. SprintRight 5-8
11. SunDEvil 4-9
12. Lynch 2-11
