I think you actually want Andruw. O:-)

:-b


no, no, I think his name is Kevin :-b

I had no real favourite here, nobody jumped out at me, had my fingers crossed for Fitz falling to me. Then I saw that BigKen who picks after me has a Lions avatar and I thought to myself "why not be a jerk and take the Detroit Jones?" :-D

I was debating real hard whether to go WR/WR or WR/Gates... I like that Gates pick Ken. ;-D

I thought there was no way you'd take both Boldin and Moss...figured a RB would work their way in since you aren't picking for a while now. Gates is pretty much the best WR left, he just happens to qualify at TE.

No worries man... You and I match up in Week 3, and I have LT and Moss on byes that week too. So it doesn't matter too much... :-°

Actually that's not all that bad of a strategy...you're in bad shape that one week but your team will be really strong going forward. Taking a TE at the start of round 3 was a bigger mistake than the bye weeks being the same. ;)

Yeah WR/WR is a bit risky... I just felt like any of the RBs were a reach and since there's a big dropoff IMHO from the "elite" WRs to the next tier, I thought it was a decent play...

We'll see... :-o

Not if that TE could catch 100 passes and 12+ TD...

Bah...still a TE. ;)

Honestly it's not a bad pick at all...Gates is definitely a monster. I'd be sweating what that WR3 is gonna look like though. ;)

Good pick with Fitz, though his production could slip a bit with a good receiving RB ... I debated taking him at my pick though in the end wasn't comfortable enough I guess with what RB i would get later.

Also I thought Kevin Jones would last longer, most people are pretty down on him.
