If you took Peyton or Brady in round 2 (or before) last year

Postby FatFoot » Thu Aug 21, 2008 3:00 pm

Can you do me a favor and post your roster in this thread? It will satisfy a curiousity, and it's no trick. I'll explain later. But I need a handful of Peyton or Brady owner teams to figure things out.

Much appreciated.

Taking dream's lead here's some teams I could dig up:

Team A: 6-7 Lost in Semis 3rd Place
Thieving Larrys
1. (11) Peyton Manning
2. (14) Travis Henry
3. (35) Carnell Williams
4. (38) Marques Colston
5. (59) Braylon Edwards
6. (62) Julius Jones
7. (83) Jason Witten
8. (86) Baltimore
9. (107) Jerry Porter
10. (110) Mike Bell
11. (131) James Jones
12. (134) David Garrard
13. (155) Reggie Williams
14. (158) Eric Johnson
15. (179) Daunte Culpepper
16. (182) Shayne Graham
17. (203) Michael Jenkins
18. (206) Kevin Faulk

Team B: 7-6 5th Lost Quarters
1. (8) Peyton Manning
2. (21) Chad Johnson
3. (36) Thomas Jones
4. (49) Jamal Lewis
5. (64) Chicago
6. (77) Santonio Holmes
7. (92) Fred Taylor
8. (105) DeShaun Foster
9. (120) Isaac Bruce
10. (133) Randy McMichael
11. (148) Eddie Kennison
12. (161) Neil Rackers
13. (176) Chris Brown
14. (189) Ted Ginn Jr.
15. (204) Daunte Culpepper

This other team didn't take Brady or Manning but took a 2nd round QB. Relevant?

Team 3: 7-6 7th Lost Quarters
1. (4) Joseph Addai
2. (25) Carson Palmer
3. (32) Larry Fitzgerald
4. (53) Jerious Norwood
5. (60) Carnell Williams
6. (81) Chris Chambers
7. (88) Devery Henderson
8. (109) Jason Witten
9. (116) Pittsburgh
10. (137) Jeff Wilkins
11. (144) Joe Horn
12. (165) Seattle
13. (172) Matt Schaub
14. (193) Michael Turner
15. (200) Damon Huard

Looking over these teams my thoughts are that it's obvious none of them had great records. Small sample size though. The thing is you really have to find good value at WR/RB in the mid rounds. Team A did this with Colston, Edwards and Witten which is why they went so far (3rd). However their RBs were ugly. Team B did this to some extent with Lewis but they really lacked any WR outside of CJ. Team 3 had no depth at WR or RB. The problem with this is that firstly, not getting a RB or at least a very very good WR in the first (none really drafted last year) really hurts. I'd say about 1/3 of the top 9-10 RBs last year were significant under performers or busts. That still destroys the number of 3-5 round RBs that did better than their draft position. Plus, not having a top WR really hurts and finding breakouts in the 3-7 is hard. Team A got lucky with Colston and Edwards. QB early is just too risky for me, especially since neither Manning or Palmer, the two top QBs performed up to their ADP. And I'm pretty sure Brady was certainly not taken in the top 2 rounds in almost every pool last year. ADP was late 3rd- mid 4th.

Awesome. And please keep em coming.

I want to address the whole "taking a QB in the first or second round" thing. I am certainly NOT trying to make the argument that this is the right or wrong way to approach things, nor am I taking last year's freak year by Brady/Moss as a standard. I just want to do some comparisons. If the end results are interesting, I'll write it all up for a possible article here. If they're lame, I will make that assertion and tell us all to go about our businesseseses.

Thanks for digging up the past, and for people who are just reading now, chip in! If you have your last year's draft results still, hook me up!

And yes, any first/second round QB is valid, though I am probably going to ignore rosters that are filled via homerism, because they're probably less relevant. :)
