    Zeus's FF draft - take your shots!

    Okay - had the draft for the Yahoo league I run.
    12 teams (for the first time - a few years back we had TWENTY (!!) teams), start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 D, 1 K, no position requirements on bench players.

    I know it's tough to evaluate a draft w/out knowing what players were on the board.
    Some dude took the Vikes D in the 8th, or I woulda grabbed them then.

    The Gods of Football
    Round Pick Player Position
    1. (10) Peyton Manning QB
    2. (15) Marvin Harrison WR
    3. (34) Adrian Peterson RB
    4. (39) Marion Barber III RB
    5. (58) Plaxico Burress WR
    6. (63) DeAngelo Williams RB
    7. (82) Kellen Winslow TE
    8. (87) Santana Moss WR
    9. (106) DeShaun Foster RB
    10. (111) Anthony Gonzalez WR
    11. (130) J.P. Losman QB
    12. (135) Stephen Gostkowski K
    13. (154) Buffalo DEF
    14. (159) Dominic Rhodes RB

    With only 12 teams, lots of options to add/drop and stuff, so I can play the "best available DEF matchup" game all season.


    I'm reasonably satisfied, but I'm kinda dependent on AD and Barber putting up some bigger numbers than most expect.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: Zeus's FF draft - take your shots!

    Relying on the passing attack in FF is a surefire way to lose.
    Your RB corps is weak, like you said, you need them to step up.
    It all depends on if you are in a league with seasoned veterans or a bunch of morons.

    Isn't it kind of soon to take AP in the 3rd round as you're first back. It must have been slim pickings at that point I guess.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Yes.
    Chester was available, but I believe AP to have the potential for bigger fantasy impact.

    First 9 picks were all RBs, after I picked Manning, 3 of the 4 picks until my wrap-around at 15 were RBs, as well.

    I have won leagues in the past by maximizing the points with a potent QB-WR combo.
    If Manning throws for 40 TDs, I'm in like flynn.

    Not bad.
    As stated, hard to judge how you did without knowing who was on the board when you picked.

    Barber had alot of TD's last year.
    AD might get you yards.


    Good luck.
    Keep us updated.
    ;D

    If AP can do the blitz pickups, I honestly feel like he'll be starting ahead of Chester by Week 6 or so.
    I can see him at 1000/10 TDs by season's end, and I'll take that.

    You might be able to pull it off. But I'm always scared of those duo backs in fantasy perspective
