If you can't get an elite RB in Round 1 I think you almost have to go Elite QB.

but then you went 3 WRS and left you very shallow at RB

DeAngelo Williams could have a bounceback year but now hes got 3 vultures on his team, Cam, Johnathan Stewart, and the most notorious of all, Mike Tolbert.


I like your first draft better.

If the top 3 QBs are gona when I pick in the 1st round Im going with an RB for sure

talking about this makes me miss football season so much 7 more weeks!

I hear ya....but this is the time I use to do my homework...most of the guys in my league aren't even thinking about draft strategies lol

That's how I stole Rodgers at #4 and cruised to a Championship

Honestly, Rodgers at 4 is not a steal. Seems about right to me.
Manning in the 4th seems like a reach. He's been going much later in all mocks I have been in.
Better question is WTF are you doing taking Kickers in the mid rounds and not even the best ones lol.. kicker is always one of last 2 rd picks.

I don't know who you are referring to.

But in auction drafts thats not uncommon

I know..in a 12 team league practice run now. But in a 12 team league that drafts next Sat..PPR, 6 pts for passing tds...defensive scoring boost...drafting for that of course.

Rath--give me some advice then for a 12 man league that awards 6 pts for passing tds, is PPR, and gives extra points to defenses that allow low points/yardage.
Just had a auto draft in a public league and for somereason it drafted me 2 defenses.
It drafted Lions & Patriot's defense, which to keep ?
