After looking at what I've got going on personally, I realized a 2nd league wasn't conducive and backed out. Thus, the auction league situation is no more.

I've got my draft Weds night and have 5th pick.  This is a really fucked up league where they never follow the protocol and I know for a fact Scam is going to be drafted 2nd and Rodgers 7th. I think I'll have the choice of David Johnson, Adrian Peterson or Todd Gurley with the 5th pick. I don't particularly like Julio Jones as I think Brian Schottenheimer is a retard but he could fall to me in that spot and I would likely take him over Johnson. Peterson is almost automatic year-to-year, but I think Gurley is the next "big thing".   I'm thinking if I take him with that 5th pick, I'll get somebody like Jordy with the 16th pick and then maybe CJ Anderson or Keenan Allen with the 25th.

I've determined that I want one of the top 4 TE's but will lose out on Gronk and Olsen. Then I have to look at Jordan Reed or Delanie Walker. I've also resigned myself to one of the following QB's in this order, hopefully in the 9th or 10th rounds: Eli, Bortles, Derek Carr, Rivers.

If you're in fake football, who do you like in that 5th overall spot?

If you want a productive TE, try and get Travis Kelce with a later pick.

I really, really wanted David Johnson in at least one of the 2 leagues I'm in(S & W and Mid Atlantic Legends) but got 8th pick in both because, well, The Authority.  Phuckers.


Took Lamar Miller in one draft in the 1st round and A.J. Green in the 1st round in the other because of course johnson, Peterson, Gurley, Jones are gone by then though AP was available in the S&W league.  I'm just not as high on him as I probably should be.
Took Delanie Walker as my TE in round 6 in one league and replaced a pick of Justin Forsett with the outlaw Jesse James as my 2nd TE there.  Also waited till the 6th in the other league for a TE and selected Travis Kelce backed up by Clive Walford.



Have to laugh at Yahoo as they basically tell you pick so and so in their blurbs(he's a sleeper, high volume, etc) and then give you a shitty draft grade for doing it.

I'd go with Gurley if you can get him.

I'll also go on the record and say that AJ Green ends up top 2 or 3 in WR this year.  He just doesn't match up with my draft spot.

I got Gurley with #5 in my non S&W league and was really happy about that. He'd be my pick if he was available.

I grabbed Kelce about three rounds after where I thought he would go...people just seemed to forget about him, to my benefit. Eric Ebron is another one that is likely sliding as he has been hurt much of the pre-season, but he'd be a good one to have too as I think he will be playing soon if not in week 1.

Wait for Vance McDonald in late rounds for TE. Blaine Gabbert main target. He looks there first.

Some other guys I like are:
Josh Gordon in the 8th round if he's there. High risk but high reward and looks great. Unfortunately, he's taken spots on my bench the past few years with no payoff.

Keenan Allen-he was on track for about 150 receptions last year before getting hurt and carried me some weeks.

Matt Forte-getting passed over in the first 3 rounds but I'll bet the Jets use him to the fullest.

Jordy Nelson, Mike Evans, Travis Benjamin (will be a long-ball threat), Desean Jackson (lasting to the 9th round in most leagues)

Minnesota D

Mark Ingram-the guy got me 10 points every week last year until he got hurt.
Lesean McCoy-same as Ingram, very consistent.

Thomas Rawls if he's not hurt. Christine Michael if he is. 

Carlos Hyde-he can catch passes and that offense is going to blow.

I hate everyone on Baltimore.

Concerned about Lamar Miller (never lives up to the hype), Ezekiel Elliott (too many backs), Alshon Jeffery (always hurt), Arion Foster (same), Ryan Tannehill (never gets it together but has great receivers), Latavius Murray (not as good as his situation last year), handcuffs in Tenn, Jax, Dallas, possibly AZ with Chris & David Johnson, ATL offense with retarded Brian Schottenheimer and the split between Freeman and Coleman, Colby Fleener (good situation with Brees but he's a pussy)

Looks like a great team but you will likely need to pick another back up come bye weeks.  I like Blount a lot this year as Lewis is out, but Henry and Coleman are in a PT role and you easily drop Witten or Dorial Green Beckham for another back when you need it.

I know.  They're so hard to come by in a 14 team league.
I made try to trade Eli after his bye week since Brady will be back by then and in total fuck you mode.[size=
] I'm also counting on a Demarco Murray injury at some point.

My team:
5th overall pick, stuck with Julio so I took him. Listed number is the round I took them

QB:
Rivers (9)
RB:
CJ Anderson (4)
Jeremy Langford (5)
Legarette Blount (7)
Spencer Ware (10)
Christine Michael (12)
Alfred Morris (15)
WR:
Julio (1)
Allen Robinson (2)
Keenan Allen (3)
Kelvin Benjamin (6)
Michael Floyd (8)
Josh Gordon (11)
TE:
Dwayne Allen (13, figure Luck needs to throw to somebody, right?)
D:
Vikes (14)
K:
NOBODY (we have pickups tomorrow, this is my favorite draft of all-time for not taking a kicker period)

Notes:
I would have held out longer for taking a QB but the run for 2nd Qb's had started before I took my first.  The caveats were that Scam went #2 overall (!!) and then same owner picked up Brady. Rodgers went #7.  I said all along I'd like to have Eli, Rivers, Bortles, Carr in some order. Eli was already gone and I realized I'd have to pull the trigger a round or two early.

The TE's went quick and I didn't like any of them after Gronk, Reed, Olsen or Walker.  Tyler Eifert (hurt) and Travis Kelce were on the radar but they were overdrafted.The rest were a mish-mash, and Zach Ertz blows, period. Every year they overrate him and he's average.  Colby Fleener went mid-rounds and he's a wuss, basically the Marvin Harrison of TE's. I figured I'd just wait until the end and take somebody equal or better. Gary Barnidge, Julius Thomas, and Dwayne Allen.  Thomas came off the board and I like Allen's upside with Luck and being the lone TE over Barnidge, who incidentally and somewhat surprisingly went undrafted.

I can't believe I ended up with Julio, Allen Robinson and Keenan Allen as starting WR's.  I can see Allen having the best numbers by the end of the year contrary to most of these experts as he's a PPR stud.

Somebody started taking D's as early as round 7 and I believe it was the Seahawks (welcome to 2013!).  I was very happy to take the Vikes in the end of the draft and can't understand why anybody takes D's early when you never know from year to year.

I'm more amused by not taking a kicker. I might pick up a new kicker each week to play simply to prove that they're all interchangeable.

I started a league a few years ago and don't have kickers. Everyone was glad to have the position gone.
