Post the worst fantasy draft pick you've ever witnessed.

To get on topic, worst pick I've ever personally seen at a draft was Troy Brown in the 2nd round last year. We had to stop the draft after that one, the commish went around and checked everyone's cheatsheets... 2 out 12 owners had him on there. And no, this wasn't an IDP league either.

I didn't see that it was from 2002 (and no, I didn't play then). My mistake. Sorry for the snark.

12 team money league, and a new guy this year picked lundy in rd 2. He was really excited about him also. I guess he read in a ff book that lundy was going to be a sleeper, he just figured he better get him about 7 rounds early to make sure. LOL

See so many people who are new to fantasy football do so much like this. Sleepers are ment to be sleepers. But hey what can you say other than hope like heck that sleeper wakes up! Heh what a crazy pick.

This year we had a first year player, and my god his picks were horrible. I was laughing. Here are his results upto round 4:

Round 1, Pick 7 - Randy Moss
Round 2, Pick 14 - Steve McNair
Round 3, Pick 27 - Derrick Mason
Round 4, Pick 34 - Chris Cooley

As you can see, he has gone 0-2 with the fewest points scored. Sad, really sad.

Last year: Vick #1 overall

This year one guy had his super sleeper as Tiki Barber, who went #5 overall. The guy tried to draft him in the 6th round.

Stewie: Not yet, but I'm thinking of joining I Felta Thigh.

I gotta call myself out here. Two years ago (my first FF season), I took Mike Vick with my first pick. He was so exciting on tv! How could he not be the cornerstone of my team for the next decade...? Ah, sweet, naiive Me....

I saw someone take Peyton Manning in the mid-1st round this year. Swear to God I'm not making this stuff up.


This probably happened in hundreds of leagues. Don't think Peyton Manning in Round 1 qualifies for worst pick ever by any stretch of the imagination.

OK, better bust out a few since I started this thread . . .

first one
many years back, we had a clueless guy draft Klaus Wilmsmeyer in about Round 5 or 6. At the time, Klaus was the PUNTER for the San Francisco 49'ers. Our scoring format at that time was a FG and TD ONLY scoring format, no performance scoring. There was not even a starting spot for Punters in our league starting lineup.

second
We had a guy draft Deion Sanders when he was playing DB for the Falcons. The league was NOT an IDP league, and only used Team defenses. This was well before any team had ever used Deoin for fill-in duty at the WR spot.
