NoExcuses wrote:I drew the 7th draft position in a PPR league, before the draft the commissioner reminded everyone this was a PPR league (which i wanted to smack him for doing so, but it didn't seem to matter) and I still wound up with THIS roster:
QB - T. Romo DAL (5th round 49th overall)
RB - B. Westbrook PHI (4th round 42nd overall)
RB - R. Bush NO (4th round 47th overall)
Flex - T. Owens BUF (3rd round 31st overall)
WR - A. Johnson HOU (1st round 7th overall)
WR - A. Boldin ARI (2nd round 24th overall)
TE - Z. Miller OAK (9th round 103rd overall)
D/ST - Cowboys (15th round 175th overall)
K - R. Longwell MIN (14th round 162nd overall)
RB D. Ward TB (7th round 73rd overall)
RB F. Jones DAL (8th round 90th overall)
RB L. Washington NYJ (11th round 127th overall) - this was my only sour spot in the draft as i was eyeing R. Rice BAL as a sleeeeeeeper, and he went 126th :(
WR B. Robiskie CLE (12th round 138th overall)
WR P. Crayton DAL (13th round 151st overall)
WR D. Heyward-Bey OAK (16th round 186th overall)
TE M. Bennett DAL (undrafted free agent)
ROMO - should be in for less stressful year without TO. should translate into big performance on the field now that the locker room is not an episode of the "Real World"
WESTBROOK - obviously a stud if healthy (big IF), and MCCOY doesn't vulture touches.
BUSH - good in PPR, again health a key issue.
BOLDIN - very productive and consistent. dependable, especially in that offense.
OWENS - can be studly, depends on qb EDWARDS and effectiveness of running game (LYNCH suspension may hurt TO early in season).
A. JOHNSON - flat out stud, especially in ppr.
MILLER - sleeper. depends on maturation of qb RUSSELL. pretty good for 9th round, though.
COWBOYS D - alot of sacks. need more td's. solid, though.
LONGWELL - dime a dozen. yours is just as good as anyone elses.
overall, very solid starters with huge upside. some injury risk, but that goes with the territory. bench pretty iffy, especially at wide receiver. no backup qb. WARD and JONES as backup rb's have potential, good mid-round picks. seems to me you should have a pretty good year- playoff caliber team. good luck.
