The biggest surprise to me was in a 10 team with 8th pick I was looking to take Romo in the 6th round after the turn. Two teams between my picks had taken Palmer and Manning in previous rounds, so I never considered him moving off the board. The guy with Palmer took him as a backup qb with his 6th round pick. After that I decided to just wait for ever and ended up with Eli and Delhomme, but I have incredible running back trade bait...

The team that took him is toast:

Palmer
Brandon Jacobs
Roy Williams
Colston
Calvin Johnson
Romo

he only has one other back on his team...Chester Taylor.

Don't even worry about Rivers, the dude's gonna blow up this season! I just had a HUGE money league draft on Tuesday. Got Ocho Cinco in the 3rd. Was the 6th WR taken off the board! Couldn't believe he was the last of the top 6 to go????

have you looked at his game log? Almost his entire seasons worth of points came in three weeks. He did crap until the second half of the season, blew up and then faded for the playoffs.

In a 10-team, experienced league, I managed to get F. Gore with the 7th overall pick.

Here's how it went.

1. LT
2. SJAX
3. LJ
4. S. Alexander
5. Reggie Bush (in a non ppr league too)
6. P. Manning
7. F. Gore (!) Yay!
"Happy life day!"

I watched Baltimore go in the 3rd round and Viniteri go in the forth....TO THE SAME Guy. He said something about the advantage of x number of points each week blah blah blah...Real funny.

My draft was kind of off, Peyton Manning was picked at 1.03, this was how mine went, I was picking from the 7 hole:

1 Gore
2 FWP ;-D
3 S. Smith ;-D
4 Gates
5 Mcnabb
6 A. Peterson
7 D Jax
8 Cotchery
9 A. Green ;-D
10 T Glenn

I felt that I reached for D Jax and Cotchery but you guys wouldn't believe the run on WR's they were the best available and I pretty much had to reach or I would have been so screwed.
