Not too bad for a first round pick. Obviously serpentine....but how many? 10-12 teamer? That's the bad part about picking on the bottom half I've found....most of the RB's are gone, unless you find your "sleeper" such as DeAngelo Williams or Brandon Jackson. I believe both are going to totally rock! So, I think if you draft on the bottom of a 10 teamer, should always be RB/WR/QB! That way, you afford yourself 3 total studs at three different positions....there's still plenty of WR out there to be had, then just pick and choose value from there on out.
Yeh, the only reason I like to do a few early drafts is because it is such a crapshoot - what I am doing is betting I know who the starters and sleepers are better than the other owners, so it just adds that little extra challenge to the game which makes it kinda fun.
Williams will be good - the only concern is whether Foster still shares too much of the workload (but his days may be numbered).
Yeh the draft I did was a 10 team serpentine, std Yahoo scoring, some guys went a little heavy on the QB's early since we start 2 (and of course everyone wanted at least 3). Actually if you draft at the end of a 10 teamer, that is the time to go RB, RB because that will be the bottom end of the good ones and there won't be any more really solid ones later - with the 10th and 11th pick you can get 2 solid RB's which you won't get later - with the 30th and 31st pick when your turn finally rolls around again there will still be solid WR's and QB's available.
I've never drafted Vick anyway, too streaky - get ya 30 pts one week and 5 the next. I'm not worried about Bulger at all, I'm sure that will resolve itself - LJ is a little riskier, but considering how little he is paid compared to other RB's and how big a part of KC's offense he is, I can't see them not wanting him to be happy, although that may take a while to settle, but he doesn't need to worry about missing a little training camp time anyway.
