A disaster of a draft

Postby FantasyJunkie787 » Thu Aug 23, 2012 3:03 am

Ok so below is my draft i shall explain below.

1. (4) Chris Johnson RB
2. (17) Marshawn Lynch RB
3. (24) Isaiah Pead RB <---------- Getting ready to get my filthy hands on Julio Jones, internet goes out. Had him on queued. So it picked him.
4. (37) Hakeem Nicks WR
5. (44) Dez Bryant WR
6. (57) Percy Harvin WR
7. (64) Matt Ryan QB
8. (77) Kenny Britt WR
9. (84) Beanie Wells RB
10. (97) Tony Gonzalez TE
11. (104) Shonn Greene RB
12. (117) Kendall Hunter RB
13. (124) Rashad Jennings RB
14. (137) David Wilson RB
15. (144) Mike Williams WR


After that pick i was just in a bad mood the whole draft, i had to pick guys like Dez to compensate for the lack of a top WR, and go for guys with some "risk" but huge upside, so my starters look like this


QB-Ryan
WR-Nicks
WR-Dez
WR-Harvin
RB-Chris Johnson
RB-Marshawn Lynch
TE-Gonzo

So how bad does it look, it's a 10 team standard yahoo league. Are there any moves i should look to make or stay put, what rating would you give this team. Hoping Britt comes back maybe mid season after the suspension and kills it with Jake. Let me know what you think of going for "those type of guys"

Considering that big hiccup, you did a nice job. Your WRs could become the strongest part of your team or drowned you, all depending on how things pan out but you knew that you had to take the risk. Overall, your team is going to need things to break the right way to stay in it this year and hopefully you're the first to dive in on this year's Victor Cruz via waivers.

Gotta let things shake out right now, no moves until you know more about PT, especially for your late round RBs and your accidental early round RB.

Yeah, i wouldnt be bummed out at that team at all, even in 10 teamer. Lotta risk, but crazy upside. Julio would have put you over the top IMO, so you're not far. If Britt returns to form, your "Disaster" team will be a dominating one.

I'm not crazy about Beanie and i want to punt Shonn Green in the ass, but Jennings will be a solid play until MJD decides to get off his ass and Wilson's prospects to contribute look pretty good.

I might try to package Lynch and one of those guys for a Forte or one of the top 4 if someone will bite (DMC would be my target). Complete the high risk high reward band!

Good luck..
