Well I under estimated of the drafting in this league I guess because I wanted like 5 guys at 3.02 I just knew would be there and they all came off the board in the 2nd round lol. Good job fellas. If anyone wants the pick shoot me an offer, I need to look at whose out here and would also be interested in picks next year as always. Run something by me.

I had some offers that were close, but just opted to pick at this point instead of throwing out some counter offers. I was a huge Titus Young fan bfore the draft, not so much now. If anyone is interested you can send me an offer for him.

Maybe I'm thinking too one-dimensionally, but I personally think it's kind of strange to trade for a player (Mike Thomas) or draft a player (Titus Young) who you don't really like and then immediately try to get rid of. Am I alone with that viewpoint? :-?

It is interesting, but with the insane player movement here, the faith you can move them has a solid grounding in reason.

Don't dislike Thomas. In fact I probably end up keeping him just because the value I'm getting offered in trades doesn't match with what I think his upside is. I think I got a good value in the trade, adding him in at the last second (no pun intended). If I can swap him for something I like better, it's a win. If no one wants him and he gives me a couple spot starts over even lesser guys (like Mason), that's fine too.

You offered me Marion Barber in a trade already :-) It's not much different. I assume he was an afterthought or last second add-on in your deal, so if you can move him for something you like better, you're already open to that possibility.

I'm sure LS2 got offered decent things for the pick but decided Titus was worth more. Maybe someone at 3.4 or 3.5 really wanted Titus but thought LS2 might pass on him.

There's players you like, players you don't like, and players you'll take and see what happens. I'll take Thomas and see what happens. Basically all the WRs I traded for the past week or two I really like and targeted specifically yet I've flipped most of them (Bowe, Harvin, Collie) and still have Thomas.

One could argue the "value" of the player exceeds what your giving up its a good exchange.

Not that I'd ever support the acquiring of Mike Thomas or Titus Young ;-)

I actually do like Titus Young, just not his situation personally. Of his talent yes. I also realize there are alot of guys off my radar to an extent who go onto be big players. I don't remember having Collie or Knox on a single 1 of my teams last year and I passed on them numerous times. I like Titus Young much more then a future 3rd in 2012, and I actually think he'll be productive this year. I just always want to extend the offer if someone is intersted because I already drafted someone who was traded minutes later, maybe somebody had a package or player that I'd like more then Titus Young.

If I feel like it'll improve my team more, doesn't bother me that I just drafted them. He's not cemented on my team for this year though, but I certainly know he's gonna prove to be valuable, just because I'm not a huge fan doesn't mean he won't amount to anything.


It was just most of "my guys" were gone, but I have learned that doesn't mean all the productive players were off the board. There are alot of other guys I really like in the draft but none I think will be better then Young will at this point. I would have preferred him to go somewhere like STL, or Baltimore is all, not a team with a young #1 who will always be that guy. I am a big believer in his talent level, and if no one sends me an offer I like I'll keep him and I think be happy with the selection.


Pushing it off for a year, and coming away with a worst pick in the 3rd rd next year or the 4th or 5th wasn't really going to help me, and I wasn't gonna reach when I have three 4ths upcoming. Just my take.

Well, only the super-smart guys had the foresight to draft both them when they came out :-D
