Theres a good one. I was thinking of drafting bad WRs before I read it.


I'll just say Burleson and R. Moss and let it go at that. /rollseyes

1. I'm not going to assume that WR success relies strictly on whether there's a good #2 WR. Steve Smith and Santana Moss have shown that you can flourish even when the defense knows they're getting the ball.

2. Rookie holdouts should not be drafted. I wasted a 4th round pick on Cedric Benson simply because he didn't get into camp and let Thomas Jones run the ball with the 1st team.

3. The difference between the top TE and the 10th TE is huge. It really does pay to get a top tier TE.

4. When gambling on late round WRs it pays to pick veteran WRs (Galloway, Glenn) than rookies (B. Edwards, Matt Jones). The chance of them breaking out is much greater than a rookie coming in and breaking out.

I'm sure there's about fifty more. I swear I learn something new each year.

1. Don't drop another player that has any value ever again. I dropped LJ how god damn ****in stupid do I have to be :(. I also dropped Collins this week for a much better McCown but look what happened.
2. (dynasty) Pick up the IRs that hold value that could be very useful. I now have Bulger, Westbook, Walker, and Green.
3. If the team says HOU, SF, or HOU stay away from them as much as possible. I thought Johnson had some great potential only to find that the O-line was worse this year compared to last year.
4. Look for players with a big first week and will take over the starting role for the team. Parker helped me out alot when he hauled for 15+ pts in the first week and many more in the later weeks.
5. Plan alot farther than what I have. I went for the injury proned but very good players and needless to say my team was a bottom feeder.

It's ok to reach in the draft if it is a reach based on the other owner's expectations. I thought Steve Smith, Burress, Barber, and Rod Smith would do well, but didn't draft them because I thought it would be too early for them based on average draft positions in other mocks. Another way to say it: trust your gut.

At least not in the first round.
Just wondering, are you making an exception for LJ?
