My best were Westbrook, Brad Johnson, and my Ds. I grabbed Balt, SF, and Pitts off the wire playing match-up.

My Rookie Fantasy Season:

Solid draft, but perpetual weakness at DEF.

Worst call: traded Moss and Holt (who I got in the 2nd and 4th rounds) for Portis (who was a 1st rounder).
-turning out to not be that bad, now that:

I picked up Steve Smith and Santana Moss before everyone realized how good they could be. Moss' 3TD game carried me to victory a few weeks ago.

Now I have Alexander, S.Davis and Portis running my team, and Santana and Smith help me not to miss Holt and Moss.

Guys I picked up and subsequently dropped in my constant work on the FA wire: Marc Bulger (no need for him, but would've been great trade material), Jeff Wilkins (who my opponent for the week picked up after I dropped and won behind Wilkins' double digit points), Andre Johnson, Marcel Shipp

Best moves I never made:
pick up Chad Johnson (owner dropped him before 1st game)
pick up Moe Williams, Jimmy Smith,
pick up (choose any defense) KC, Tennessee, Philly, St Louis, Indy, Carolina, etc.
trade Gannon's broke a$$ for someone decent at the beginning of the season
draft Ahman Green instead of Alexander (who knew... i kinda did but went with the higher ranked Alexander)
get on my computer before auto draft picked Culpepper in the 1st rnd... instead of Priest Holmes.. fortunately I got there in time to end up with the best overall draft.

Worst moves I didn't make (but almost did)
give up on Gonzo
trade Culpepper when injured
drop A-Train before his breakout
drop KRob (he'll be back, baby)

haven't really done much this season on the WW because i'm in a 20 team league. pickings are slim. but last season was insane -- by the end of the season, pretty much my entire starting lineup were WW pickups from a 12 team league, including:

QB: Pennington (Bledose/T. Green drafted and on bench)
RB: Portis/Henry (A. Green/Alexander drafted and on bench)
WR: Ward (Moulds was the other starter and the only one in my lineup I actually drafted)
TE: Crumpler (Pollard drafted and on the bench)
K: Akers
D: Tampa Bay

making that list, I guess it turned out that only one player on my team was drafted. I remember I made no trades that year either. Last year was even weirder than this year for fantasy.

My best pickups: Bulger, Pennington
Shipp, A-Train, J. Jackson, Rudi
S. Moss, Warrick, Boldin

Championships are built on draft, luck, knowledge, and good waiver pickups. A lot of people over-look the wire, advantage...well, all of us who pay attention, and snipe the wire. Congrats, guys, if you're on this site, you've probably made good moves.

I got Bulger, Dom Davis, and Rudi. Grabbed Troy Walters this week and got his TD. Throw in the rotating cast at TE and I've done pretty well in the FA market.

My best pickups have been Andre Johnson, Rudi Johnson, and Brian Westbrook. Westbrook especially has given me some very solid games, plus the monster he put up this week w/ 3 TDs.
