Traded my 08 first and TJ Duckett to the Dunn owner for the 1.09 and took Young there.

Traded Droughns, 2.02, and 2.08 for an 08 first (which ended up being 1.01--Peterson).

Drafted Kitna at 3.08.

Needless to say I am happy with the results.
Essentially I traded Deuce, Duckett, Droughns, 1.08, 2.08, and 08 first

for

Maroney, Young, Peterson


This was a "bust" thread. Gloating can be done in the thread entitled, "I am the greatest FF'er ever".


Damn, I can't be happy that last year was a draft I did well?

This year don't draft a bunch of RBBCers...

Fine Comment Policeman. In my redraft I took McNabb. But I had Brees as his backup...


I like the Comment Police joke, but in reality, you got owned. The thread says "post your mistakes" and instead you gave yourself a pat on the back and a cookie. A double-stuffed oreo cookie. So please kindly take your beating with dignity...

Worst mistake?

Wasn't mine, but my dad and I joined a 100 dollar PPR (keep this in mind) money league. 14 teams, we got the 2nd pick overall. Someone takes LJ first overall, I was off at college during the draft and my dad couldn't call me to talk about the pick, so he goes and takes SA #2 overall in a PPR league. Needless to say we finished the year in the bottom four.

Thank you very much, you big Homer. :-D :-b

I'm in that league with Steelers, Verdun Barbarians, PopCynical and since they're all talking about it I have to tell my worst move of the season.

Wasn't a drafting mistake but I traded away Bush and Deuce for Shaun Alexander in a PPR dynasty, THE WEEK BEFORE HE GOT HURT!! I only missed the playoffs in two out of 11-12 leagues last year, and that was one of them. You're very welcome, Pop.

:-b !+) !+)

Worst drafting mistake? Hmmmm. I don't usually dwell on my bad picks but I really regret taking McGahee over Westbrook in a .5 PPR dynasty league. BTW - That was the OTHER league I missed the playoffs.

:-b !+)

Worst draft mistake EVER. My second year of fantasy football...I took Michael Vick with the second overall pick. The year he got hurt in the preseason and missed 14 games.

:-/

Yes that would just about guarantee a losing season, but I finished 7-7 drafting Culpepper and Chambers in the same rounds.

Took a shot with Bledsoe as my starting QB which never panned out and I lost out on Romo on the WW.

Drafted three mid QB's Bledsoe, Brees, and Delhomme. Traded Brees for Hasselback. Gets hurt. Pick up Favre. Gives me negative point games. Also didn't pick up Romo. Still made it into the playoffs but my QB's hindered me all year.
