Did my first draft last night, came out feeling pretty good. I'm a little concerned about my receivers, especially wtih Boldin's situaiton. I had the 7th pick and took Addai as my number 1 guy. BTW, it's a 12 team league.

QB - Jay Cutler (8th pick)
QB - Bret Favre (13th pick)
RB - Joseph Addai (1st pick)
RB - Larry Johnson (2nd pick)
RB - Thomas Jones (6th pick)
RB - Willie Parker (7th pick)
WR - Reggie Wayne (3rd pick)
WR - Anquain Boldin (5th pick)
WR - Donte Stallworth (9th pick)
WR - Reggie Brown (11th pick)
TE - Antonio Gates (4th pick)
K - Ryan Longwell (14th pick)
DST - Eagles (10th pick)
DST - Ravens (12th pick)

How you think I did?

I'd say you are pretty solid, IMO. Stallworth will be a good 2nd receiver in that Cleveland offense. And I think the Ravens D will be one of the top 5 this year. Great gamble on Favre at 13th btw.:thumbsup:

pretty good runingbacks.

parker, we all know he's great is great. johnson may be a gamble. jones should improve with faneca

no worries on receiver, stallworth will be pretty much like at NE last year

great defenses and a good QB who will contnue to improve. and favre at 13th seems like a great pick, hopefully he comes back, if he does you team should be even better. I might try to do the same

The only problem I see is drafting before preseason even starts. One or (if you're really unlucky) two injuries and your whole season can be sunk.

I agree totally, revs. I don't join any leagues who have their drafts before TC starts. I prefer drafts in mid to late August.

Not a bad looking team, ST. :thumbsup: You are very strong at RB and your WR's are pretty solid for the most part. I think you took a gamble at QB, but who knows? If Cutler plays to his potential and Favre ends up starting for the Pack (or another team), you have a good shot at the playoffs! Good luck! :drink:

If Cutler comes back strong, then you are solid there, I just wish this whole Favre thing would just end imediately!!!
Stallworth is just so injury proned, I dont think he will make it all season, but I love Wayne and Bouldin. Gates is also very solid, but I dont really think the way you do about the Ravens I guess.
Good Luck

Thanks for the replies guys & gals! I agree about drafting too early, but the draft is my favorite part and I could no longer wait. That's why I did another draft last night, lol. Results below. Keep in mind, I'm in 3 leagues (with $money$) where we will be drafting later in August, so that's the ones I'm more concerned about. Last nights draft I got 12th pick out of 12 teams. I made some crazy picks, but these are just practice drafts before the real ones start up. Thanks again..

QB - Peyton Manning (1st round)
QB - JaMarcus Russel (14th round)
RB - Clinton Portis (2nd round)
RB - Maurice Jones -Drew (3rd round)
RB - Lendale White (6th round)
RB - Edgerrin James (8th round)
RB - Just Fargas (13th round)
WR - Plaxico Burress (4th round)
WR - Anquan Boldin (5th round)
WR - Javon Walker (7th round)
WR - Sidney Rice (11th round)
TE - Owen Daniels (10th round)
K - Kris Brown (12 round, ran out of time and was "auto-picked")
DST - Eagles (9th round)

I sure have some head cases in the receiving deparment.

p.s. :tt:

Raiders WR Javon Walker reported to training camp without any noticeable facial wounds, according to reports, which would seem to suggest the police report that stated he had suffered a broken orbital bone and a fractured jaw when he was beaten and robbed in Las Vegas last month was off base. Injuries as serious as those would still be lingering and probably would have kept him off the practice field. Yet, as head coach Lane Kiffin has vowed all along, Walker is reportedly prepared to participate in camp

It's hard to say about Gore at this point. He flashed brilliance a few years ago. But with their anemic passing game, it's hard to say. If Martz can turn that around, watch out for Gore.

ricky williams could be greatness for the first 4 weeks (maybe even longer). i did the same thing.

Alright peoples, last night I had my first real draft worth $75 per team. This is probably going to be my most important draft of the year. It was an 8 team draft with me picking 5th. We only get a total of 12 transactions the whole season so I made sure to draft backups in all but 1 position. Kickers to me are expendable. Again, please rate my team. Thanks !:helmet:

QB - Derek Anderson (5th round)
QB - Matt Hasselbeck (10th round)
RB - Brian Westbrook (1st round)
RB - Frank Gore (2nd round)
RB - Maurice Jones-Drew (7th round)
RB - Michael Turner (11th round)
WR - Reggie Wayne (3rd round)
WR - Marques Colston (4th round)
WR - Santonio Holmes (6th round)
WR - Laveraneus Coles (12th round)
TE - Jeremy Shockey (9th round)
TE - Heath Miller (13th round)
K - Josh Scobee (15th round)
DEF - Pittsburgh Steelers (8th round)
DEF - Jacksonville Jaguars (14th round)

BTW, it's 2 RBs and 2 WRs with 1 flex RB/WR

you got hasselebeck at 10th? that's great, especially if anderson flops

brian westbrook is always a good fantasy back. jones is rising and gore should be better this season. turner's a great replacement for a bye or injury

receivers is amazing, two rising stars is colston an holmes, and established vet with manning throwing to him, and coles should benefit from favre. you will have a hard time deciding which not to use, they are all good

2 solid tight ends. shockey(if healthy) should see his numbers rise in New orleans.

great draft. I'd give it an A

In my most important league, who should I start at my flex?

Santonio Holmes vs. Texans
or
MichaelTurner vs. Lions?

My 2 starting RB's and WR's are:
Brian Westbrook
Frank Gore
Reggie Wayne
Marques Coltson

Should I bench Gore and start Turner and then put Holmes at flex? This is my biggest concern this weekend. Thanks fellas.
