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.
I see. I agree that 10th is a pretty bad spot this year but I feel you should have took more chances drafting in that spot. There's virtually no upside on your team. You almost have to take risks picking late in order to give yourself a chance at a great team and that's why I much prefer auction drafts.


We have different outlooks in FF. I much rather swing for the fences on an elite talent and guy in a great situation but has injury concerns (McFadden, Matthews, Richardson) than play it safe and get a normal season that you would get out of Jennings, especially when you consider the depth at wr this year. Those guys can win leagues for you. Jennings isn't going to do that. I wouldn't go wr early this year except for Calvin but if I were give me Julio ten times out of ten over Jennings. Higher upside.

I probably would have taken McFadden in that spot but if you asked me yesterday morning it might have been Matthews.
