You know, reading this makes me take advice from here with a grain of salt....... hehehe.
But then I remember my horrible pick last year. It is a 16 team league and I was runner up the year before so I had the 15th pick in a snake draft. There is a run on te's midway through the draft and I panic and take Marcedes Lewis as my starting TE. DOH!! Man, I just got so flustered!!

Thank you very much, you big Homer.
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.
In the same league (yes, really) I managed to take Lamont Jordan in the 1st, Chris Chambers as my no 1 WR, Dayne as my 3rd RB (the joys of drafting in early May), Chris Brown as my 4th
I managed to sneak into the playoffs thanks to Westbrook and my IDP's but it's put me in a bit of a hole this year. Interesting to see so many regrets from one league!
Not a mistake, but a close call was last year, when in a 6 consecutive pick run Rudi, Westbrook, Cadillac, Dominic Davis, Lamont Jordan and Edge went and I took Rudi and then Westbrook a few picks later.
That is NOT to gloat about my FF prowess, but to show how lucky I was to get out of that minefield with 2 good players.
For the second year in a row in one league I tried to wait as long as possible for a QB since I missed out on the top 2 tiers. By the time I got ready to take a QB and the draft got back around to me, some people already had their 2nd QB. I won't be doing this again.
