This League is a little different than standard as it gives 6 pts for passing td, -2 for int and there are 5pt bonuses for 300 yd passing, 150 rushing or rec:
WR WR WR
1. (6) Chris Johnson - RB
2. (19) Frank Gore - RB
3. (30) Hakeem Nicks - WR
4. (43) Brandom Marshall - WR
5. (54) Antonio Gates - TE
6. (67) Kenny Britt - WR
7. (78) Daniel Thomas - RB
8. (91) Jacoby Ford - WR
9. (102) Mike Williams - WR Sea
10. (115) Chicago - Def
11. (126) Sam Bradford - QB
12. (139) Ryan Torrain - RB
13. (150) Ryan Williams - RB
14. (163) Torrey Smith - WR
15. (174) Jimmy Graham - TE
16. (187) Adam Vinatieri - K
Not sure about the 2 TEs, Graham was so high on my board I took a flyer on him. I went some sleepers too early maybe with Daniel Thomas and Jacoby Ford. What do you guys think?
How many teams was this league?
Not terrible, but with 6pt passing TD scoring, I probably would have taken a QB in the 1st or second round. (a QB with 30 TDs on the season would have 60 more fantasy points on a season . . . that's a pretty huge bump. Starting RBs are solid, assuming Gore stays healthy, but you don't exactly have tremendous depth. Your #3 guy is a rookie with no QB, sharing time with Reggie Bush, on a team that by all accounts isn't looking to be an offensive powerhouse.
Last year Bradford had a lot of yards, but not many TDs. You had better hope Bradford drastically increases his TD production or you are going to be getting stomped by guys with better QBs. No position scores more TDs than QB, and so you basically waited till the 11th round to draft what will probably be your most important starter. IMHO he's a nice QB2, but a marginal QB1 in a league with scoring like yours.
I don't love Marshall as a WR #2. MIA has a horrendous QB situation, and Marshall is a risk as is with his mental health issues. I get the feeling that you probably passed on some guys that you shouldn't have. You'll be crippled if you suffer any serious injuries.
