Thanks to everyone for a fun draft, all pretty decent looking teams, some better than others (you decide). 

 

My strength is in my WR position, so long as my RB's stay healthy I feel good. Unfortunately I always have a an RB end up on IR. So at least I got some trade capital.

 

How's everyone else feel?

I feel the same. What was it last year “don’t take a RB early” and this year the RB’s went like wild fire.

Ya, the RB pool was definitely deeper this year than in previous years I think, but significant drop off after the first 14 or so. While the WR felt like a dime a dozen to me. You have a few elite, and then it's just a crapshoot. I took six WR just because they kept falling to me. I forced myself to pick up my fourth RB in Isiah Crowell just because I didn't want a seventh WR lol.

 

I mean Melvin Gordon fell to me in the 16th spot, and I hadn't planned for that. It was either him or Michael Thomas, and I figured I would solidify my RB duo. I think it is because McCaffrey went before Gordon, I wouldn't have taken McCaffrey at 16. From there it was three WR in a row, then RB. I was set on getting a TE in the seventh for my draft strategy, as nothing good was ever available by the 8th in my mocks. Another 3 WR, then a RB. I was once again set on picking my QB in round 12 as they were deep this year, I mean I got Big ben in last round for crying out loud.

 

My original board and plan got changed once Gordon fell to me, but I did get most of the players I was targeting in the rounds I was targeting them in or later.

I’m willing to trade for a starting RB so send me your offers!

That was fast! You've got more RB than I do though, don't think I could be any help.

 

You should might worry about your WRs, you just lost Lee.

Yea my draft definitely didn’t go like my mocks did as far as who I was targeting. Looked to me a lot of us were targeting the same players in the same rounds.

 

I never imagined AB falling to me at 6 and then Hopkins being there again in 2nd. And I wanted Dalvin Cook with my 2nd and he went the pick before me. I forgot just how often and early colts players would be taken too!

 

And I don’t know why I pulled the trigger in Mahomes when I did, oh well. Over all I think I did ok. It’s gonna be a fun year.

I’d be interested in Michael Thomas and rashad Penny off your team. Take a look at my team and if there is anything that peaks your interest we can talk about it. Not sure if you would be interested in any of my RB’s or not.

Wow, are you getting lucky. It is the same thing as two years ago. Every week the person you are going against gets their lowest score of the week. Lowest PA and 4th lowest PF....lol You're going to win the Championship cause you've got a voodoo doll.

I can agree to that trade, however...

 

I face my wife this week and if I make the trade, I will literally have no other WRs to play other than D. Jackson

 

Kupp is out, lockett and brown are on bye, and Allen Robinson and will fuller are both questionable. 

 

If I lose, I don't hear the end of it. Can this deal be done next week?

Should have waited to next week with brown on bye, but she just had 3 get 27 so i might have a good chance lol. Bit when you're 2nd in PF and still 3-3, who knows.

That was meant for @Lucky Colts Fan

@BPindy and your PFs are only going to be about 10 points apart this week. Could come down to that with you two for the 2nd in the division.  Unless of course @Lucky Colts Fan wants to continue streaking...

My team is really only interested in scoring either 200 points, or like 115 points. The ol’ Desean Jackson of fantasy teams

Not sure what that trade with Hulce is about, speculation? I think J. Brown has the better schedule moving forward and Brees is way better. However you do have mahomes. Think hulce won that trade.

I only have 1 WR available this week. I could hit the waivers, but none get me to excited. I picked Brees up off waivers, was gonna use him for Mahomes bye week, but I needed a WR this week. I could care less about Stafford and Brown has been up and down. I agree he got the better end of the deal, but I had a need.  I tried to just do Brees for Cooper but he wouldn’t do it.

Dang that sucks, I see that's some bad timing. Definitely nothing on waivers. Desperation makes you do crazy things. Like trying to trade Jarvis landry for a TE...

Pure coincidence I assure you. I have no TE in my other league and some teams are hoarding 3 TEs on their roster.

Yeah, I totally blanked on fantasy this week, my aunt was in the hospital so I haven't been on sports stuff as much. It's unfortunate.

This is too much!

 

A nail-biter Colts game, then a nail-biter Saints/Steelers game.

 

Now a nail-biter championship game against Trueblood that comes down to Patrick Mahomes in the 2nd half against the Seattle defense...  I can barely sit still!  :excited:

:D  I caught myself getting greedy earlier - "No, don't give it to Mack or throw it to Inman, give it to Hines and throw it to TY!"

 

But then I was like "I don't care!  Throw it to Chester!  Just beat the Giants!!!!"  :td:

 

Now I'm like "Just keep handing it off, Mahomes, no need to throw it..."  :thmup:

LOL that’s funny cause I was the opposite until the end, I just wanted a score and didn’t care if it was Luck to TY.

 

Then in the saints game I was hoping for OT but the saints still winning haha. 

 

At at least the Chiefs game is playing out to where Mahomes should be throwing in the 2nd half.

    • If we win a SB with Luck, I'd actually be fine with it. Right now I'd take 1 SB win and be happy. With Brady and Mahomes playing in the AFC, and young guys like Watson and Mayfield, a SB is not a guarantee. Not to mention we have to win when we get there.
    • Yeah. They will need to pick and choose how they keep because their payroll is getting up there. The more I think about it and research it though, it seems like it's more likely than not that they will keep him and let some of the other high end FAs walk.      I do too. This was more of a how I would do it, rather than what Ballard would likely do. I think Ballard will be restrained with the money again.        Yeah. I think in my next mock I will probably do some combination of Golden Tate, Randall Cobb and John Brown instead of Williams. 
        I think Iupati is much higher end talent and if he stays healthy he is a completely different animal to anything other than Nelson we have on the O-line. I think he's closer to Nelson than he is to the other linemen if he can stay healthy. Big if, but yah... 
        I think he's the same mold but I think he's much more talented and much more athletic. He tested like an elite athlete when he was coming into the league and it's starting to pay off. I also think he's probably a better pass-rusher than Sheard. Also again - Sheard's contract is up after this year and he will be 31. I'd rather have his replacement ready to go on the roster when we ultimately let him go.  Looking forward to seeing your version of a mock off-season. Also... I hope you post some scouting reports on players. Cheers.
    • Haha, I think we'd have to figure out 18 years of history on what's scripted lol. Brady is putting up a lot of the stats like Brady for real and the wins, I do believe a few of those SBs were scripted though. Especially the 2001 though with 9-11 happening and all that. I called that one as a 14 year old and made my uncle money where he bought me a nintendo gamecube.
    • Another guy I would go after in a heart beat if he reaches Free Agency is C.J. Mosley.  If you pair him with Leonard, that could be a lethal combination.  In the draft focus on WR, DBs and an Edge rusher and your set.
    • I completely agree. There's a lot of things he can improve on. I think we should see a big jump next year. My hope at least. He needs to work on the little things, the details
