Padres Fan wrote:I took over a keeper team in a 12 team ESPN League, 2nd year. It's not a standard league as we play alot of defense positions seperately, the 8 keepers were set prior to me taking over (marked with a *), and I had first overall pick in the draft (My draft pick choices are marked)
How did I do? Could I make a upgrade somewhere?
WR-Chad Ochocinco 1
WR-Donald Driver 3
DE-Osi Umenyiora 4
CB-Antonio Cromartie 10

I don't know enough about IDP's to comment on those, but other than that I'll thow in my 2 cents...
First off, I think it's BS you couldn't claim who you were keeping, your team - should be your choice.
McFadden (I like his keeper potential) & Bush aren't bad, but at this point neither can be considered RB 1's, but there is no way in hell that McClain should have been kept.
Brady & Smith are flat out studs - you need big years out of those 2.
I like Cooley, he typically goes under the radar - I wouldn't be worried about last year's TD production, that was a fluke.
With 96 players off the board, I like 85 as your #2 WR & Driver is a good #3. Crabtree may help down the road (but that could hurt you badly next year if you can't get some sort of sample size in 09 and decide he's worth keeping - think Mike Williams, but worht a shot in round 9). Burelson was a steal in the 14th.
RB is going to be a problem - Fred Jackson could very well end up your RB1 until week 4 - that's not a good thing.
With Brady in tow, I would have looked at an option other than Sanchez in round 2.
IMO, you need to figure out a way to get your hand on a legit RB - in a keeper format w/ so much talent spoken for, that's going to be very difficult - you don't exactly have a glut of talent at any one position.
