The luck comes in on draft day. The skill comes in on WW pick ups, and starting players against the correct matchups.


The only luck that applies to the draft is where you pick.

You can then either draft smartly or foolishly.

If I drafted Chad Pennington with my first round pick and proceeded with similarly stupid picks I can't blame my poor season on 'bad luck' during the draft.

If I go in thinking maybe I can wait until round 7 or 8 and get Romo while I stock up on RB's and WR's in the first 6 rounds and also target a guy like Peterson in round 4 or 5 is that luck? I don't think so. That is having a good draft plan.

"ADP is the Ryan Braun of Football" is right, as someone earlier in this post said. 4 100 yd games in 5 weeks with a few TD's and he officially isn't the starter and is splitting carries with Chester.

All you have to know is he's an extremely good rookie player. He plays another sport, I believe it's called "bais bohl," although I'm not completely sure on the spelling.

No Gore last year or Peterson this year eh?

Anyone who watched Peterson at OU is not surprised by his performance this year, you can try and chalk it up to luck, but in reality you just weren't informed or knowledgable enough to get him before he broke out.
