Just finished my second money league draft in two days. The first was my first auction draft and this was a snake type draft. I had the 4th pick in a 10-team H2H league. Interestingly, I don't have one single player in common between these two teams.
We start 1QB, 3RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF I'm pretty happy with my team. How does it look?
Snake Draft, 4th pick - 10 team H2H, start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF QB - Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning RB - Ray Rice, Maurice Jones-Drew,Ahmad Bradshaw, Beanie Wells WR - Greg Jennings, DeSean Jackson, Santonio Holmes, Julio Jones, Pierre Garcon TE - Greg Olsen, Aaron Hernandez K - Josh Brown DEF - Pittsburgh
Normally, I wouldn't take two TE, but did so because I thought they were both a little shaky. Nobody likes Olsen this year, not sure why. He was great in Chicago before Martz. I know that Newton is a rookie, but doesn't that mean he should have to dump off to his TE more frequently? That was my thinking anyway. Hernandez has competition in NE, but I think he has a lot of upside.
I was actually targeting Owens and then Winslow, but both got snatched right before my pick. I was gambling that one of them would still be there because only one team between my two picks didn't already have a TE. Wasn't planning on somebody taking 2 TE that early.
Guys on waivers are Heap, Cooley, Gresham, Tamme, Watson, Celek, Heath Miller. Cook and Kendricks are gone. Cooley is the only guy from this list I would even consider.
I think this team looks to be in great shape. very strong starting lineup. I like Olsen this year for the same reasoning, Newton's gonna need to dump the ball a lot after failing to scramble. Your starting RB/WR are really great. Good job overall.
