My league had its annual draft the other night and what a night it was. Everything fell into place just perfect, food, friends & beer! This league is a money league so the players are all very knowledgable and borderline experts. Being that most of us are financial analysts & controllers we are very savy when it comes to data gathering & analytics. So you can immagine the spreadsheets that were flying around. Still not every manager had a good draft some were just plain old bad, which is surprising but still it happens to the best of us. I guess thats why we renamed the league: BONEHEADS-R-US because some of us just are .
This is a 10 team PPR league, we start 1QB, 2RB's, 3WR's, 1TE, 1Flex, 1K & of course 1 Def. I have the #4 overall pick. The draft started out as expected LaDainian Tomlinson at 1 & then Adrian Peterson at #2, but then the first surprise of the draft at 3 Joseph Addai....remember this is a PPR league so I jump all over and quickly shout out Brian Westbrook! I'm estatic! The rest of the first round was all RB's as Frank Gore went at 5 then followed by: Steven Jackson, Marion Barber , Clinton Portis, Marshawn Lunch & Larry Johnson. I am still surprised to see that Brady & Moss were still on the board. I'm not going to list out all the picks but this is how my team turned out I feel not only did I get the best value I also had the overall best draft and on paper I'm the team to beat check it out:
Brian Westbrook, Terrel Owens, Andre Johnson, Thomas Jones, Ben Roethlisburger, Earnest Graham, Brandon Marshall, LenDale White, Derrick Mason, Heath Miller, Eli Manning, Owen Daniels, New England Patriots, Neil Rackers & Chris Perry . This team is balanced and has depth at RB & WR. Oh boy I can't wait till the season begins.
