Anything wrong with Jones Drew and or Rice

Postby closerhell » Fri Sep 03, 2010 2:44 pm

Im in the second round of a 12 team draft pick #19 overall Ray Rice and Jones Drew are still available.
Heres so far

17 Boiler UP! Favre, Brett (QB MIN)
16 Susanville Spirit Moss, Randy (WR NE)
15 Korrupt Gore, Frank (RB SF)
14 Dianna's Devils Mendenhall, Rashard (RB PIT)
13 Drunk on Sunday Flacco, Joe (QB BAL)
Round 1
12 Drunk on Sunday Turner, Michael (RB ATL)
11 Dianna's Devils Palmer, Carson (QB CIN)
10 Korrupt Johnson, Andre (WR HOU)
9 Susanville Spirit Schaub, Matt (QB HOU)
8 Boiler UP! Brady, Tom (QB NE)
7 Blue Balls Rivers, Philip (QB SD)
6 Wolfpack Romo, Tony (QB DAL)
5 Lil' Wick Brees, Drew (QB NO)
4 Slestacks Manning, Peyton (QB IND)
3 Mustangs Peterson, Adrian (RB MIN)
2 Delta Force Johnson, Chris (RB TEN)

The only catch about this league is that theres a lot of bonus for distance TDs and it goes through the NFL playoffs so players on winning teams matter a little more. Im up the pick after this one. Who should I pick?


jones drew, rice, megatron, Wayne, roddy white, austin, fitzgerald, deangelo, matthews? My first pick was Romo. (yes qbs are very valuable in this league, and its not a ppr)

Rice is a big play guy...remember the 80 yarder against NE in playoffs? Ravens are almost a lock for playoffs and a tight division race. So he is golden.

Looks like a very weird draft... is it a 2 QB league? I can't believe Rodgers is still available with all those other QB's gone. If it's 2 QB, you have to take Rodgers next. If not, go with Rice.

wow,why did you take romo over rodgers? i'd go with rodgers with your next pick.

nothing wrong with rice, i'd take him out of the two rbs.

mjd is a little nicked up, but he should start week 1.

There's something wrong with this league. Without seeing the scoring settings that would lead to these insane first 2 rounds, I have no idea what value they have in the league. But no, nothing's wrong with them.

wwhy did you leave out the first overall pick?? id go with Rice as well over MJD. Rice is a lock for the playoffs. Both Rice and MJD have big play potential despite popular belief. I have 2 big play leagues and both these guys have 40+ yd tds last year with is 12 pts in both of those leagues
Eastmont League 10-3 (2nd Seed)
Wenatchee League 9-4 (2nd Seed)
Urine Trouble League 6-7 (6th seed boooya!!!)

Sorry, Rogers, #1 overall. and we start a flex position, can be anything, so most people start 2 qbs. So MJD just went, should I take Rice, Austin, fitz, megatron, Wayne? or how about Matthews?

One of the things that makes this league unique, it seems. MJD is unlikely to advance far into the playoffs- never mind actually make it.

Ray Rice, Wayne and Austin are all good bets to do go deep into the playoffs. Roddy and Mathews are good bets to make it to the playoffs. MJD, Fitz, DAW and Megatron don't have good chances, but are such superior regular season options you don't want to ding them too much.

I have never heard of a league that runs through the NFL playoffs except as a type of "bonus" round. Is there a payout after the NFL regular season and then things start over for the NFL playoffs? If so, ignore that. Just win the regular season and hope to get lucky in the playoffs.

I think Rice is the easy pick here regardless of scoring system. I play in the same type of league as far as being able to play flex at QB - you can get that 2nd QB rounds later and be totally fine. You need to shore up your other positions now, particularly with the value you're getting.

if players on winning teams matter more, go with Ray Rice...no contest

oh and rodgers is still available for some whacky arse reason..this is in a league where players on winning teams matter most...rodgers is on a winning team..he should be the No1 pick...your league is either oblivious to real life facts, or the settings are some how setup to favor guys like Schaub over Rodgers. if big points are awarded to big TD pass plays on top of what you said...then Rodgers should clearly be the NO 1 pick in your draft..especially ina 2 QB league


Dont invite me to your league or offer to pay my entry into your league..i want nothing to do with it
