Be very afraid of auto draft. Accidentally missed draft in a league yesterday. Imagine my chagrin when I found out it drafted a TE in the second round. Two of us in an 8 team league were on auto draft, both of us got TE's in that round.

As long as it was Graham or Gronk, that aint so bad, especially if its a PPR league.

those were the two TEs auto draft snagged in round 2. Still can't see any TE being worth a 2nd round pick, especially in an 8 team league.

My money league. 12 person draft, and I had the #5 pick. I had a chance to get Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin as wide recievers but I was already Philly heavy. Of course I have some homerism going on. Everybody is saying to not draft Adrian until the 3rd round....that is where I got him. Didn't have much choice.

LeSean McCoy(Phi - RB)
Michael Vick(Phi - QB)
Adrian Peterson(Min - RB)
Percy Harvin(Min - WR)
Miles Austin(Dal - WR)
Stevie Johnson(Buf - WR)
Jonathan Stewart(Car - RB)
Shonn Greene(NYJ - RB)
Lance Moore(NO - WR)
Santonio Holmes(NYJ - WR)
Carson Palmer(Oak - QB)
Philadelphia(Phi - DEF)
Greg Little(Cle - WR)
Kyle Rudolph(Min - TE)
Cincinnati(Cin - DEF)
Rob Bironas(Ten - K)


Standard scoring format except passing TDs are only 4 point instead of 6. Rushing receiving TDs are 6. Passing bonus is 1 point per 25 yards.

Delain wow getting Peterson at pick 29 was amazing. Getting Vick in the second round was horrific. He usually goes in the fourth or fifth. All in all a solid team. Good luck with it. My one piece of advice is find a spot you can pick up Foles and have him for when Vick is injured because I think Foles will outperform Palmer. How about cutting that Cinci D and putting foles in that slot.

In fantasy football they use a term value based drafting. Positions don't matter. It isn't about how many total points they will score. It is about how many more points one player will get vs who you might get at that slot if you draft it later. Gronk had a huge edge over other players at his position. Will he repeat last year. Very likely not as that was easily the best season ever by a TE. He is still virtually unstoppable and worth drafting in the second round. Only concern is rumors have a few more targets going to Hernandez this year a few less going to Gronk. Remember last year Gronk catching the pass a DB attempts to tackle him and falls to the turf in a heap while Gronk merrily trots into the end zone.

There was a huge run on QBs. Rogers and Brady were taken in the top 4 picks thus me getting McCoy at #5. At pick 44, I would have gotten the 12th best QB. Rivers and Romo were even already gone.

I actually think I got Adrian in the 2nd round and Vick in the 3rd.

We only get 25 add/drop roster moves for the year and I picked up the CIncy D since Philly was playing NYG in week 4.

Nice trade since you were able to get Rudolph. McFadden and Peterson huge risk reward at your first two picks. I would have played it safer myself but if they both work out you will be styling. Not a fan of the law firm on a lesser team. I think he will committee with Scott. If Scott is available make a move on him but I would think not. You got Pead again. You think he has something? Final analysis good team as long as neither McFadden or Peterson screw you.

I like Pead in this league becuz he is STLs kick return guy and he'll get some 3rd down looks. Since return yards are in play in this league, he is a great stash.

I'm very loosely considering playing him this weekend.

So I'm watching the Falcons and Broncos and noticed yesterday that my opponent's lone player left is Roddy White. The problem for him is that I'm 20 points ahead and guess who my remaining player is left? Matt Ryan. Life is good. 2-0, here I come!

Yeah but don't forget all the Roddy White end arounds they run LOL. Congrats on 2-0. I am doing two money leagues and 2-0 in both.

This is my current money team....obviously I am stacked at running back...12 team league.

Pos Offense
QB Brandon Weeden
WR Stevie Johnson
RB Shonn Greene
RB Jonathan Stewart
RB Alex Green
RB Rashad Jennings
DEF Philadelphia
DEF Minnesota
K Blair Walsh
QB Michael Vick
RB Adrian Peterson
RB LeSean McCoy
TE Kyle Rudolph
WR Percy Harvin
WR Miles Austin
WR Lance Moore


I am pretty good at wide receiver, too. I guy offered me Brady and Crabtree for Vick and Rashad Jennings. Crabtree is useless to me. I was thinking about counter offering for Brady and Heath Miller. Don't know if he will give up Heath though. The problem with Brady though is that his schedule sucks during the playoffs. Houston,SanFran then Jacksonville.

Thoughts?

Here is his team. I would like Roddy White...but that is not going to happen me thinks...

Pos Offense
BN Michael Crabtree
BN Anquan Boldin
BN Fred Jackson
BN DeMarco Murray
BN Ryan Fitzpatrick
BN Lawrence Tynes
BN Pittsburgh
DEF New England
K Matt Prater
QB Tom Brady
RB Alfred Morris
RB Ryan Mathews
TE Heath Miller
WR Roddy White
WR Jeremy Maclin
WR Devery Henderson

I see he just dropped his other tight end Chandler from Buffalo. I would probably have to add Rudolph to the trade then maybe with crabtree. Thoughts.

Another guy has the slumping Cam Newton and RG3. Could probably trade for Newton....but he has looked like shit. Newton has Atnalta,San Diego, then Oakland for the playoffs. Also I don't think I want to help the guy with Cam Newton since he has a good team. And Jennings would make him real hard to beat.

Brady is a stud. As long as your league isn't murder on QB stats, you can't lose.

But, here is the bigger thing. Someone OFFERED YOU a deal involving Tom Brady and Michael Vick. Who's this idiot and how can I play against him going forward?!

Your only problem is you have too many Vikings skill players in your lineup. While you have the only three offensive options, I don't recall a game where all three served in one game. I'd find a different TE without cutting Rudolph.

But accept the Tom Brady deal before he changes his mind. You won't get a better offer, maybe ever.

I am in a world of hurt this week and I need some advice. Very bad timing on concussions for me. QB,WR,WR,WR,RB,RB,TE,K,DEF...12 team league.

Vick is out for sure. Brandon Meyers has a concussion and probably out. I am in Bye week HELL. I was hoarding running backs and it has working in my favor because many teams are in dire need of a #2 RB so they have been sliding in the rankings and I am now in 3rd place, but the middle of the rankings is still tight. I have been trying to trade for Luck and he wants McCoy but now he knows I am in a pinch and he is being a jerk. The league leader has RG3 and Cam Newton and I asked him if Newton is available but if I help his team I would be handing him the championship unless he takes Shonne Green. HIGHLY unlikely. His #2 is Reggie Bush.

My Thoughts:
I need a TE, I have to dump Myers for Scott Chandler. Not really wanting to get rid of Rudolph, but I might have to.
I have to dump the Minny defense I presume...although I am not really loving Tampa Bay even though they play carolina.
I need a new kicker, I could pick up the slumping Zeurline. I don't want to drop Walsh since he has been money for me.
Quarterbacks..options are Bradford against NYJ at home or Foles at WASH. Both decent matchups this week and for the playoffs.

(Car - RB) ..............Jonathan Stewart..............TB...committee hell
(GB - RB) ..............Alex Green ..............@Det...Playing Ok but Starks is back
(NYJ - RB) ..............Shonn Greene..............@StL...Not really a good matchup
(Phi - RB) ..............LeSean McCoy..............@Was...Obvious start
(Jac - RB) ..............Rashad Jennings..............@Hou...Starting this week again but MJD due back soon, crappy matchup
(Min - RB) ..............Adrian Peterson..............Bye
(Buf - WR) ..............Stevie Johnson..............Mia...Obvious start
(Dal - WR) ..............Miles Austin ..............Cle...Obvious start
(Jac - WR) ..............Cecil Shorts ..............@Hou...Obvious start
(Min - DEF) ..............Minnesota ..............Bye
(Min - K) ..............Blair Walsh ..............Bye
(Min - TE) ..............Kyle Rudolph ..............Bye
(Min - WR) ..............Percy Harvin ..............Bye
(Oak - TE) ..............Brandon Myers..............NO...Concussion
(Phi - QB) ..............Michael Vick ..............@Was...Concussion
(TB - DEF) ..............Tampa Bay ..............@Car...Obvious start

So..
I drop Minny defense for Zeurline
I drop Myers for Scott Chandler
I put in Shonne Green??? for Adrian Peterson
Who do I drop for which QB????????????????

I'd drop Vick for Bradford and start one of the Green(e)'s.
