That's the 1st one that came to my mind. Still :*) & :-S over that one. :-?

1.05 - Tony Romo (2nd QB off the board)
3.05 - Roy Williams (ahead of Roddy White, Brandon Marshall, Wes Welker, Housh, TO, etc)
4.12 - Darren Sproles
7.05 - Kevin Boss (Zach Miller, Chris Cooley, Kellen Winslow and others still on the board)
9.05 - Brady Quinn
10.12 - Mewelde Moore



The guy that Matt posted about is the same guy bungle mentioned. 8-o :-?



EDIT #2: Watch him win the league....not! :-b :-B

I signed up for a yahoo public draft that drafted tuesday

the 2nd overall pick in the first round was Ahmad Bradshaw

Then at about round 5 or 6 I was looking at the teams rosters and realized that another team picked the following:
Round 1 Brees
Round 2 Peyton
Round 3 Aaron Rodgers
Round 4 Rivers
Round 5 McNabb

Then I signed up for another yahoo league that drafted tonight and somone drafted Tony Romo 3rd overall and Westbrook 4th overall. MJD fell to me at 5 so i cant complain.

Steve Slaton number 1 overall in a 10 team PPR League.

What baffled me on this pick was that the guy who made it considers himself a fantasy football expert. I think Slaton is a decent back and could have a great year, but in a 10 team PPR League Slaton would have probably been there in the late 2nd or early 3rd since receivers and a couple QBs will probably get drafted in the first two rounds.

Did a yahoo mock today and in a rush to get in before it filled i accidentally joined an 8 team draft. This draft had more idiots and first year players than I'd ever seen. I ended up with

1. Maurice Jones-Drew (Jac - RB)
2. Steven Jackson (StL - RB)
3. Calvin Johnson (Det - WR)
4. Greg Jennings (GB - WR)
5. Terrell Owens (Buf - WR)
6. Dallas Clark (Ind - TE)
7. Matt Schaub (Hou - QB)
8. Pierre Thomas (NO - RB)
9. Anthony Gonzalez (Ind - WR)
10. Kevin Smith (Det - RB)
11. Marshawn Lynch (Buf - RB)
12. Kevin Walter (Hou - WR)
13. Matt Hasselbeck (Sea - QB)
14. Philadelphia (Phi - DEF)
15. Jason Elam (Atl - K)

Some of the highlights...

2.8 Tony Gonzalez
3.1 Chad Ochocindo (ahead of Moss and Calvin Johnson)
4.8 Hines Ward (ahead of Colston, Housh, TO, etc.)
5.7 Chris Cooley (ahead of Gates and Clark)
7.1 New Orleans DEF (2nd DEF taken off the board)
8.8 Ricky Williams (ahead of Kevin Smith, McFadden, Lynch)
One of the guys took both Brady and Peyton in back2back rounds for "trade bait" (in an 8 team league)
Add in 6 kickers and 6 DEF before the 10th rnd...and remember this is out of just 8 teams.

So we had our draft last night. 12 teams this guy had 9th pick. I understand the existence of homerism but some of these picks are just awful. Kevin Faulk in 2nd round with the 16th overall pick??? Adam Vinateiri with the 57th overall pick?? My fav is Tyson DeVree with the 88th pick. Just Awful!

1. (9) Peyton Manning
2. (16) Kevin Faulk
3. (33) Wes Welker
4. (40) Laurence Maroney
5. (57) Adam Vinatieri
6. (64) Fred Taylor
7. (81) Steve Breaston
8. (88) Tyson DeVree
9. (105) Sammy Morris
10. (112) Ted Ginn Jr.
11. (129) Kevin O'Connell
12. (136) BenJarvus Green-Ellis
13. (153) Fred Jackson
14. (160) Indianapolis
15. (177) Earnest Graham

First rule of FF... don't play Yahoo public leagues. I don't even use them anymore when I have empty spots available.
