Let me see - Your draft went:
1 - Manning
2 - Deuce
3 - CJohnson
4 - Julie Jones
5 - Tony Gonzo
6 - SSmith
7 - Coles

You sure did get some steals there. When your opponents allow for this to happen you can pretty much take Ryan Leaf in the first and still have a great team. Nice draft, but I would honestly look for better competition next yr - playing in leagues where this sort of thing happens can end up causing you to get into bad habits.

Bottom line - in standard leagues where the scoring is either 50pass yds per point and 6 per TD or 25 pass per point and 4 per TD, then Peyton is not a 1st rd pick. Of course it all depends on the projection though - if you project Manning to repeat what he did last yr, then he is basically the #1 overall player in every format - if you expect him to regress back to his career averages, then he is at best an early to mid 2nd rd pick. Value based calculators will show this.

Manning - 1st round ADP
Duece - 1st round ADP
Jones - 2nd round ADP
Johnson - 2nd round ADP
Smith - 4th round ADP
Gonzo - 4th round ADP

Realistically, you shouldn't have been able to acquire one of Duece/Manning and Jones/Johnson. That would make your team dramatically different if the draft was competitive at all. I'd take Manning in first if I knew other drafters would slouch as much too.

Yea, well you've obviously figured me out. No point in presenting a logical argument at this point.

Except for the fact that a large handful of guys picked 4-7 rounds later will all throw for 28+ TD's as well.

I am not panicking yet....at Baltimore and against Jacksonville...Two pretty strong defenses. I think Manning will get it going in the next few games..He has some decent matchups coming up.

And that's why I didn't rank Manning as a top 4 pick.
