Curious who you passed on to pick Jennings.
Since the top 3 qbs went off the board quick, I assume a good back fell to you? Your backs are terrible, especially for ppr. I feel like you're going to be scrambling all year looking for production from that position. All your RBs are in a time share and don't help out much in the passing game aside from Hillis but I think he takes a step back in that department due to Jamaal. Turner is slowly being squeezed out of the equation in a pass heavy offense and ATL has said they will lower his carries. And Redman just isn't any good.
Also not a big fan of picking a kicker or defense that early when you can fill up on your other positions.
I do like the Ben pick/waiting on a qb in general. I like him a lot this year and qb is very deep so if you can't get one of the top 5 in the 3rd-4th range then I think it's much better to just wait and get a Romo, Ryan, Ben, Rivers, Eli, Cutler. I'm waiting on qb regardless this year but i do see the reasoning of picking the top 3 early.
I just don't see any way that your team is competitive unless you just kill it on the waiver wire. Just my opinion.
Yep, RB is by far, without a doubt, my weakest position group.
I didn't have a ton of elite backs left by the 10th pick, which is a tough spot to draft. Foster, Rice, McCoy, Forte, Calvin Johnson, Chris Johnson, and the 3 QBs were all gone.
My logic was Matthews is glass (thank god, as he broke his collarbone 15 minutes after i made that decision!), McFadden is coming back from LisFranc surgery, Trent Richardson had surgery and is a rookie and on the browns, Jamaal is coming off ACL and will split carries, and I dont like MJD. Jimmy Graham ****ed his back up yesterday in practice, too.
So the highest player I had at the time were WRs. Fitz or Jennings. I love Fitz, but I dont trust the QB(s?) or AZ defense to help him. I figure I'll have a lot more opportunity for points with Jennings and the Pack, even if its spread around.
In the second, I had to go Gronk. Graham was injured, and the point advantage I will have over everyone else's TE's is immense, and could help to win tight games.
24 picks later, RB was scarce. Since everyone had loaded up at RB, i figured other position groups would go off the board, so I grabbed AJ Green - remember, we have 3 WR's + flex. I was able to get Turner in the 4th.
Didnt have a ton of options, but I agree, not a stellar team. I feel comfortable that I did well considering how the board fell.
