Marshall Divsion Draft Review
Wow check out this first 10 draft picks.
LT, C pep, Dillon, McGahee, Manning, SA, Westbrook, Holmes, Mcnabb, Harrison
Ugly! Yea that transfers into some Weak teams in Marshall. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve added a bit extra comments on Vikings players in this Division as well. Read on.
1. Just Relax
Best pick: Alexander, Shaun SEA RB 1.06
Worst pick: Vinatieri, Adam NEP PK 7.06
This guys played Before, Followed the normal draft theory and dominated it. Bet this is the only league you have seen when SA fell to you at 6? Man you couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t of got him there 2 years ago. Your backup RBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s are unknown if they start much at all so that could be a bit risky. Everyone of your WR picks were steals, bet you will consider your last pick Branch in a few weeks. Branch is someone whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got a very tough schedule early then it gets easier, so his trade value will be low coming into playoff time, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something to look for in players. The rest of your team is awesome, nice one getting Brooks so late. Looking at your draft it looks like you know what youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re doing hence you shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stuff this team up midseason, take no1.
Best pick: McAllister, Deuce NOS RB 2.07
Worst pick: Culpepper, Daunte MIN QB 1.02
One lucky fellow! YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re lucky your draft didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t fall apart after the premature pick of Culpepper but you got 2 first round running backs in the 2nd and 3rd, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crazy! You took Wayne over Andre Johnson which I think will hurt you later but hey WayneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no mug he will do you well and Nate should most weeks as well. I know Moss has gone bla bla bla and Nates the new no1 but I'm a bit scared taking him in FF. We have 4 receivers that would make any team in the NFL and a TE who led them all last year. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of balls to go around. Yeah Nates going to get most of them most weeks but since Carter left there hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t been a WR outside Moss do anything in FF. Add in how inconsistent Minnesota is plus this new found love for Ã¢â‚¬Å“tryingÃ¢â‚¬? to run the ball IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not taking Nate to early this year. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s being taken around the same time as Javon Walker, Andre Johnson, and Hines Ward. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not in that Class yet, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hope he is next year. Anyway you have lots of Depth and a good team.
Best pick: Barber, Tiki NYG RB 3.05
Worst pick: Manning, Peyton IND QB 1.05
Yea on that Manning pick. The top tier RBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s has a group of 6 which is LT, SA, Holmes, Deuce, Edge, Willis(could argue Willis) and anyone picked in the top 6 before them is an awful pick but 7th where you enter the next tier with the DDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, JonesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, JamalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a bit more risky so WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s or QBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s could go there. You just went a tad early. Saying that out of about 50 drafts of done I think I've gone RB 1 and 2 in at least 45 of them. Anyway you recovered by getting DD and Tiki next up then a bit later took Drew Bennet before most would, but I have a feeling he will go alright this year with the Titans Airing it out fro behind and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the man that will get the results. PK/TE/DT all real good. Not bad.
Best pick: James, Edgerrin IND RB 2.06
Worst pick: Dillon, Corey NEP RB 1.03
Rookies or not, how Edge can fall that far I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know. He makes your RBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not to bad now and you have 2 others who start on there respective teams, nice. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re starting WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and TE combined should average over 80 receptions and your PK/DT will get some big scores sometimes. Another Kerry Collins LoverÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ A lot arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keen on this guy but I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really know what to think. Has is draft stock roared here since every time we watch him he tears us up? Maybe a tad, but no as we all know the main reason is Randy Moss. I actually donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t rate the Oakland D at all and in that division thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s some good teams who will expose that. This should bring about some shootouts for the raiders which boost Collins stats and RandyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, hey Randy in a Shootout, WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new? Alright team here filled to the brim with depth.
5. Fuad Fan
Best pick: Mason, Derrick BAL WR 13.01
Worst pick: Leftwich, Byron JAC QB 7.01(heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an awful NFL and FF player)
Yep not bad, did you think about Portis or Tiki instead of the unknown Jones? I just donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know about that guy. Plays in a division full of great run stopping defense as well on a team that falls behind, will he get 300 carries? Will that small frame last 200? Hey who cares you got LT! Johnson and Moss are 2 explosive WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s but this league suits crafters who rack up catches, still those are 2 greats there. What am I taking about? Moss CatchÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a ton, as soon as I see that name I just see flashbacks of his rookie season (where he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t reception heavy) and the sound of disbelief from the commentators. The rest of your team has a question mark over it though. Can Wiggins do it again? Haha BengalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s DT? Oh nearly forgot, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like your Quarterbacks.
Best pick: Holmes, Priest KCC RB 1.08
Worst pick: Chambers, Chris MIA WR 5.08
Steve Smith, Jerry Porter, Clayton, BoldinÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Those names wring a bell? Chambers must ring a bell when he runs his routes because he never gets open or makes consistent plays. He annoys me every year. That guys got all the skills but doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t use them, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve given up on him. The 5th rounds too early for him. Poor Drafting. Um what else...? Yea quite good. You jumped on Mcnabb early and got 4 starting running backs with lots of WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s. I hope you know how to trade because I think you have the tools to do it. That was one of the main disappointments when I heard we only start 2 WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, its pretty much going to end a lot of trade talk since everyone will have decent WRÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s to start anyway. A lot of trades IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve found are built around teams trying to get there 3rd WR position concreted in. This league just doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have enough starting positions to warrant too much trade thought. That makes the draft even more Key. And Canada did quite well
7. 2 Beers
Best pick: Boldin, Anquan ARI WR 10.05
Worst pick: BAL and PIT DTÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 5th and 6th
The Rookie sirens are loud and clear here. Started with the reach on Willis then bad picks in the 2nd, 5th and 6th. CanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t afford to mess up that early but you have. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure who your no2 back is but I think Foster will emerge this year and play really well, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s my sleeper of the year by the way. Boldin in the 10th is good but im not high on im this year. Yeah not much else to say this teams not special.
8. Art Master
Best pick: Moore, Mewelde MIN RB 16.02
Worst pick: Westbrook, Brian PHI RB 1.07
I was quite surprised during the draft on how much love Moore didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t receive. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the guy that most around purple pride want to start and arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t we supposed to be running a bit more this year? Bennet hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t proved much yet, sure Tice raves about him in Training but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only a stage to show of his athleticism, we all know and have seen he doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run to well in game situations. MooreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next on the depth chart no doubt and I guarantee heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on TiceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mind. In those few games he played last year he was a top FF player, who knows he could get back there and its only a 16th round pick. Looks like you took all your favorite players in this draft because most of them you jumped the gun on. Apart from Green and Harrison thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not much to talk about on this team, you might struggle here.
