I must be the only guy on here whose team is awesome (7-2) that picked Corey Dillon (3rd round!!!) as a starting HB. Not only that but my other back is Garner #2 pick).....and this is a 16 team dynasty league we are talking about!
I figure that with all the talk about how Dillon is killing teams I would inject some positive vibes into the topic of the Halfback that used tobe Corey Dillon
I am 7-2 cuz I took Manning in rd one @ 11 overall...going aginst conventional wisdom of RB-RB.....I grabbed McGahee and Mike Bennett in rds 17-18 cuz everyone forgot (our draft was @ 9 PM...people got tired...it ws midnight when it ended!)
I traded for Dom Davis and I have Onterrio Smith as a #6 back now......and I also own Rudi Johnson.....I threw Bennett and WIllis on IR for the year and so now...man, next season...man talk about your lineup @ RB
I just had to gloat a bit since all I hear is Dillon sucks @#$#...DIllon #@###
So come opening Sunday next year I will have Dillon, Garner, McGahee, Bennett and Davis
Thats why I never do anything except keeper leagues...its pointless to win when ya cant keep your roster...and in this case lets say you drafted Dillon, Warner, Faulk, and Edge...your screwed this year but there is hope for nezt season....I never do one-season only leagues cuz there is almost an aura oif it being a crapshoot every year...keeper leagues allow you to REALLY manage and maintain a team...and not be forcxed to win every week....
I had a guy in our inagural draft took Vick in the second round knowing he was hurt,....he conceded this year and is building for the future...
Obviously in a dynasty league where ya keep everyone...ya gotta be a pretty serious owner and sometimes people take a keeper league more seriously than other one season only leagues.....but it makes it more reality based.
Based on our point system...WR are just as equal as RB and QB...so we had one or two terrible picks....Grenn of KC went early as a homer pick and that guy is 1-8.....in the first round we had 9 RB 6 QB and 1 WR taken......
Our guy in first whose 8-1 has Alexander, Buckhalter, A. Smith and Betts as RB...but he has Brad Johnson at QB, and is loaded @ WR with Hines, Andre Johnson, S. Smith, K-Rob and Porter...we start 3 WR so he is loaded.....
What I am saying in a roundabout way is that there is so much parody that 15 out of 16 teams are competitive every wek (minus the guy who is 1-8.
It makes it so much like the NFL....and to be good...ya gotta be REALLY GOOD
