how did I endup? Please slap me for drafting this crap.
Sometimes I feel like a broken record. Get those RBs early. Wait on getting the QB, you'll still land someone decent. I don't know how much money you spent, and I don't want too. I will say, it could be worse. I think people just get so worried about getting stuck with a guy like Ryan Fitzpatrick as their start and not their backup. I get that, but if wait until the 7th round, you'll still land a potential 3,500 yard 25 TD passer.
Levon is bang on. There is more uncertaintly at RB position than any other so load up. Lack of RB depth cost me my league last year even though I had Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, Bowe and Holmes. Lost Grant week 1 and never recovered having to start a mishmash of Woodhead, D Brown, Ivory and B Jackson as my #2.
Your achilles heel is at RB. That Williams pick obviously cost you huge because you would have had a crack at a Michael Bush or a Delone Carter.
Best pick: Sims-Walker. He could thrive in the McDaniels led offence.

You are going to struggle with Greene as a RB1 and with who to play at the flex, but you have enough upside guys that I wouldn't throw in the towel just yet. Play the waivers well and with a bit of luck you'll be in it.
