I drafted fifth in my 15 year league last night. Prep was minimal with only one mock draft and Razzball's PPR rankings loaded into the system. That was a pain by the way. They really need to invent something that can import rankings from a spreadsheet into ESPN/Yahoo/etc. For the majority of the draft, I took the player highest on my list. Surprisingly, they were pretty much always available. Only twice did I lose a player I wanted in the pick or two before mine.
This is a ten team league with standard scoring (1 pt every 10 rush/rec, every 20 passing, 4 pt passing TD's, 6 pt other TDs, PPR). We start 1 RB, 2 WR and 1 RB/WR plus the Flex. I knew for about a week that I would be drafting fifth. I had counted on Rogers or Brady being there. To my surprise, the first picks were Rodgers, Foster, McCoy and Brady. That left me with my number one ranked guy, Ray Rice. I'll take a change in strategy for him. On the way back I got Graham (Saints fan here too) and was able to snag Stafford in the third. That is a pretty solid core IMHO. The whole team with the round and pick taken:
QB: Stafford (3.5), A. Dalton (13.5)
RB: Rice (1.5), S. Jackson (4.6), Hillis (8.6), T. Gerhart (11.5), Ryan Williams (16.6)
WR: Harvin (5.5), DeSean Jackson (6.6), Crabtree (9.5), Titus Young (10.6), M. Williams (12.6), Amendola (17.5)
TE: Graham (2.6)
Flex: J. Finely (7.5)
K: Hartley (14.6)
Def: Philly (15.5)
I had planned on taking RG III as my backup QB in the tenth, but went Titus Young hoping he'd be there on the way back. He went on the swing pick though to the guy with Rogers. It came down to Palmer or Dalton and I took Dalton a little later. That is my major mistake as Stafford isn't the healthiest guy known to the league. Hillis in the 8th might have been a stretch but I didn't miss out on anyone other than Rivers, who I doubt I would have taken. Cedric Benson went at the end of the 11th. I had forgotten about him and his new role in Green Bay. That was a big value pick IMHO.
How does it look overall? I like it with the exception of the receiver position.
