Draft Surprises????

Postby Decleater » Mon Aug 27, 2007 1:31 pm

Just wondering if there were any surprises in any drafts you've done so far? Like, someone going way before his ADP or dropping really late in the draft.

Here's some of mine from my 10 team drafted Friday night:
Reggie Bush at 1-6! :-*
Brandon Jacobs at 4-2 (me ;-D )
Adrian Peterson at 3-7 (homer pick)
All top 5 QBs gone by round 4 and top 6 WRs gone by round 3!
Deshawn Foster and Bernard Berrian going undrafted

I took Mike Vick in Round 4 and then somebody told me he's in legal trouble. This sucks.

Reggie Bush at 1.06 isn't very surprising - depending on your scoring... If it's a PPR league, I think that's right on... If it's not, then it's probably a little early, but not by much...

Jacobs at 4.02 is a little late, but he's usually a third round pick these days, so it's not obscenely late...

Peterson at 3.07 is too early, but it might prove to be a good move... He's certainly been one of the most impressive RB's in the preseason...

The Big-5 at QB are usually going in the late 4th to early fifth... So I don't think that's a shocker at all...

Foster and Berrian going undrafted is definitely a shock... I hope you picked them both up on waivers...

Seriously, what happened?

I just traded for him in a dynasty league. I though I was getting him cheap.

It's a non PPR league 4 pts TD throw 6 pts rush/receive TD. 1pt 50 yards pass and 1 pt 25 rush receive. So, not too sure why the QBs flew like they did especially by the START of the 4th round. They were history by the end of the 3rd. Strange. Thinking of canning Chris Chambers for Bernard Berrian actually. He'll be there with Roy Williams, Reggie Brown, and Mark Clayton....we start 2 WR. Also thinking of canning either Tatum Bell or Ladell Betts for Deshawn Foster. Start 2 RB and he'll be burried underneath Addai, FWP, and Brandon Jacobs anyhow. What to do, what to do?

they wrote Vick, but they meant Mick, as in The Mick, Mickey Mantle. I think he played football once, or maybe it was basketball? Anyway, he died awhile back, so obviously he won't be putting up many fantasy points this year. :-°

Keep Chambers over Berrian, but I would drop Bell for Foster.

It's a tough call there Whodey#9. Everything I've been reading is that Chambers isn't getting in synch with Green. All Trent wants to do is go to his TE's and checkdown runner, or slot receiver....just like he did in KC. Terrible! On the other hand Berrian has Grossman trying to throw to him who just holds on to the ball waaaay too long. Wasn't sold on Tater either, but when I saw Foster there, I about crapped myself! Gonna have to get that guy!
