    Holy crap! How many teams are in this league? 4? 18 players is a lot of players. If somehow this is a 10 team league, you will win it.

    Re: Grade the draft thread

    Here is my results from earlier today. 12 team league, start QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-W/T-TE-K-DEF-6 BN Non PPR, 25 yd passing/pt 10 yd rushing-receiving/pt. Return TDs count towards the individual players ...

    1. (3) Adrian Peterson
    2. (22) Maurice Jones-Drew
    3. (27) Larry Fitzgerald
    4. (46) Carson Palmer
    5. (51) Roy Williams
    6. (70) Jonathan Stewart
    7. (75) Lee Evans
    8. (94) Donald Driver
    9. (99) Selvin Young
    10. (118) Todd Heap
    11. (123) Vincent Jackson
    12. (142) Kurt Warner
    13. (147) Josh Scobee
    14. (166) Chris Henry
    15. (171) Philadelphia

    I love my RB depth, and will be looking to move one of my backups for a upgrade at TE or WR3.

    Thoughts?

    Definitely sitting pretty with all those RB's. Gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of a trade. I'd probably have to give the team an A- with the possibility of becoming an A after a trade to upgrade.

    Here's my second team that I drafted, standard public league:

    QB:Hasselbeck
    WR: Terrell Owens
    WR: Steve Smith
    WR: Roy Williams
    RB: Brian Westbrook
    RB: Darren McFadden
    TE: Dustin Keller
    K: Mason Crosby
    DEF: Green Bay
    Bench: Eli Manning, Hines Ward, Derrick Mason, Jonathan Stewart, Selvin Young, Ricky Williams

    By the time I picked my TE, I didn't have much to choose from on the board, so I'm hoping Keller sees some looks, but I also have a bit of RB depth to try to make a trade there. Other than that I liek my team once Steve Smith is back in the lineup.

    This is a great team and you should be very happy.

    Your RBs are VERY strong with Jackson and Lynch and you gotta like Palmer at QB -- he is very undervalued in drafts this year IMO.

    You got great value at WR thanks to a couple of suspension slides. I think Marshall (along with Braylon Edwards) could be the best young WR in the NFL. Steve Smith is a great value, too. The first few weeks will be tough, but Calvin Johnson is a great #3.

    Clark should be fine at TE and your K and DST look okay, too (I never worry about these positions that much anyway since TEs not in the top 3 are almost always equally mediocre and there are tons of Ks and DSTs on the waiver wire every year).

    Nice work! Your team should compete all year.

    Re: Grade the draft thread

    Okay, just finished a 10-team league draft. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 DST, 1 K and 1 Flex. I was fortunate enough to land the #1 overall pick. Right after the draft, I then traded Carson Palmer and Santonio Holmes for Drew Brees and Braylon Edwards. While I hate to trade CP, I couldn't turn down that deal.

    So, here's what I ended up with at the end of the night:

    QB Drew Brees
    RB LaDainian Tomlinson
    RB Darren McFadden
    WR Braylon Edwards
    WR Brandon Marshall
    TE Tony Gonzalez
    RB/WR/TE Reggie Bush
    K Neil Rackers
    DST Eagles

    QB Matt Hasselbeck
    RB Matt Forte
    RB Selvin Young
    WR James Hardy
    WR Vincent Jackson
    DST Eagles

    I think my team is pretty solid. A lot depends on whether McFadden and/or Bush reach their upside. If one of them does, I think this team could really contend.

    What do you think?

    Re: Grade the draft thread

    Here's mine, fresh from last night. 12-team Yahoo league.

    WeeklyDisappointment
    1. (6) Steven Jackson
    2. (19) Maurice Jones-Drew
    3. (30) Chad Johnson
    4. (43) Anquan Boldin
    5. (54) Donovan McNabb
    6. (67) Hines Ward
    7. (78) Vernon Davis
    8. (91) San Diego
    9. (102) Stephen Gostkowski
    10. (115) DeAngelo Williams
    11. (126) Isaac Bruce
    12. (139) Deuce McAllister
    13. (150) Bobby Engram
    14. (163) Ben Utecht

    My first pick came down to Steven Jackson and Brady. It seems like the past couple of seasons I haven't had a strong RB corps so I focused on getting the best available RBs in the first couple rounds.

    I would drop Arizona and pick up another RB. Overall fairly decent draft though. Witten plays like another WR. Also for your sake I hope Harrison returns to pre 2007 form

    Re: Grade the draft thread

    Did my draft last night -- I intentionally bucked conventional wisdom in a few places, just because following conventional wisdom has guided me to two consecutive bottom-feeder squads in this league. Plus, I also had the misfortune of picking 8th and missing any running back worth taking:

    12 Team league -- pass TDs (5pt), rush/rec TDs (6pts), pass yds (25y=1pt), rush/rec yards (10y = 1pt)

    QB: Tom Brady (NE)

    RB: Reggie Bush (NO)
    RB: Earnest Graham (TB)

    WR: Reggie Wayne (IND)
    WR: Hines Ward (PIT)
    WR: Nate Burleson (SEA

    TE: Dallas Clark (IND)

    K: Josh Brown (SEA)

    DEF: Jacksonville (JAX)

    BN: Kevin Curtis (WR-PHI)
    BN: Limas Sweed (WR-PIT)
    BN: Matt Forte (RB-CHI)
    BN: Chris Johnson (RB-TEN)
    BN: Jon Kitna (QB-DET)
    Championships Matter.

    Re: Grade the draft thread

    I'm in a 12 team keeper league. You can keep as many players as you want, for up to five years, but we have a salary cap and the price on saved players goes up each year, so it becomes a balancing act. Here's what I've got:

    QB
    Tom Brady*
    Kurt Warner
    Troy Smith
    Matt Leinart

    RB
    Steven Jackson*
    Frank Gore*
    Chris Johnson
    Antonio Pittman
    Ahman Green

    WR
    Andre Johnson*
    Greg Jennings*
    Wes Welker*
    Reggie Williams
    Steve Smith (NYG)
    Chris Henry
    Sam Hurd

    TE
    Jeremy Shockey*
    Donald Lee

    K
    Mason Crosby
    Jason Hanson

    D
    Steelers
    Colts

    *Saved from last year

    I'm uncomfortably thin at RB, but I knew going into the draft it would be that way. The bad teams threw all their players back and then gobbled up the few worthwhile RBs that were available in the first couple of rounds, before I had a pick. Last year I had the best record and got to the title game, I figure I should have a fighting chance to get back there this year.
