I went 3 or 4 years drafting the same kicker, Nate Kaeding.

H was always in the top 10, and San Diego always had their bye in Week 11, so that meant I didn't have to worry about a replacement kicker until late in the season.

In mine I always seem to get the middle class guys. Except for QB, which I usually grab Manning or Brady if I can... I actually won a league twice in a row with a #6 and #12 RB and both my WR were outside the top 10... but then again hows that old saying go "Any Given Sunday" :)

I think I have had Bernard Scott on every one of my teams the past 2-3 years as he has always been one of "those guys" ready to break out as soon as benson gets hurt or just sucks. Hasnt happened yet lol

Recently Kaeding was a guy that I got a lot as well in the most recent years. Shayne Graham was that Kicker for me during his decent years with Cincinnati.

Antonio Gates is the only guy I trust enough to have on my team year after year. I only play one team per year as a way to truly gauge how successful I truly am. Including this year, he's been on my team 3 straight years.

Matt Schaub lol. I always wait until the mid rounds to get a QB...and for some reason he's always there. I wasn't upset at all when I looked at my draft sheet last year and saw his name not marked off on my sheet in the 6th round

Steve Smith (Car) has been on one of my teams for like 7 years running. He always drops late enough I think he's worth the pick. Still waiting for him to actually make me look good by picking him.....

oh without a doubt its kaeding :-b. i probably end up with him in 80% of my leagues every year :-b. and not anymore, but for a long time it seemed like i always ended up with clinton portis. portis is my sleeper this year so i think i can wait and take him in the 5th round or so :-b ;-)

I've been riding with Maurice Jones Drew for a couple years now but I'm finally letting go. Don't trust his health and his performance last year was disappointing.

You can't go wrong with Reggie Wayne, love taking him each year because you know exactly what to expect, hes slipping on my board some only because of Peyton's injury.

In my league I'm generally the one to take a risk on rookies, two years ago I nabbed both Forte and Johnson when they were rookies. Last year I took Mike Williams and jahvid Best, whome I traded after the first couple weeks when his value was high. I am definitely not afraid to snap up the best available player left on the board if a guy is still available late. I'm thinking Shonn Greene might be a guy that falls a couple rounds and I might just take the risk on him.
