My first PPR draft - 10-team league with pick #7

Postby ucbsharkbait » Sat Aug 25, 2012 7:48 pm

So I just had my first ever PPR draft -- it's a weird .3 PPR league. Anyway, I think I might have gone overboard on valuing guys with high reception totals, if I even did it correctly. How does this look? I had the 7th pick.

QB: Vick (Rd 4)
RB: Bradshaw (Rd 5)
RB: Sproles (Rd 3)
WR: Calvin Johnson (Rd 1)
WR: DeSean Jackson (Rd 6)
WR: Vincent Jackson (Rd 7)
TE: Gronk (Rd 2)

Bench:

QB: Rivers
RB: Tate, Gerhart, Starks
WR: Meachem, Crabtree, Sanders

Hrm, other than Megatron and Crabtree, a lot of your WRs are homerun hitters and not big PPR guys. That said, it's a pretty decent team. You might have issues with Bradshaw being your RB1 due to his health history but you have solid RBs on your bench. Starks probably the one guy that you won't have around for long unless Benson gets hurt but your team should be competitive.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I agree that I should have grabbed a possession receiver. Might want to trade one of DeSean or V-Jax to get a more consistent producer. Good point on the RBs as well; would have liked to get one earlier, but I just can't get excited about Richardson or Matthews or Murray. Maybe that will end up being the end of me. Ah well.

Nah, too early for that. Wait until the end of week one before you get down-trodden like that (I keed). I'd see if someone would bite on V-Jax for name recognition. Agree about Mathews, though Richardson/Murray I don't mind this year.
