How about this?

I drafted T.O. in the first round (drafted Randy in the second). I drafted Jeremy Shockey, a TE, in the third. I drafted Michael Vick in the fourth. Then, I drafted David Buston and Peerless Price. I picked two kickers and a DEF before I drafted any RBs (first RB taken in the ninth)...

Luckily, I made some trades and finished first. ;-D

Chad Johnson on waivers?!? Yikes, musta been a small league. My worst is probaly taking Aaron Brooks in the 2nd round (start 2 QB's/14 teams - I was deesperate for a top QB) and taking Toomer and K-Rob over Chad Johnson.

This was my first year ever playing fantasy football. I really had no strategy except to draft a starting lineup instead of best available. I had the 11th pick (out of 12 teams) and then the 2nd pick in the 2nd round. I took Alexander and Henry, solid picks considering. Then it fell apart. Koren Robinson and Jeff Garcia with the next two picks! Peyton, Culpepper, McNabb, Warner, Gannon, Brooks were all gone.

For my 2nd WR, i took Rod Gardner! I totally forgot that Coles was now the #1 in Washington. Next year, I'm gonna be SO much more prepared. Luckily, I got Dom, SSmith off waivers and McNabb, Horn, Boston in trades.

Faulk as the #3 pick in the draft over Priest and Portis. K, Collins in the 5th, that was really stupid. Best picks were Holt in the 4th and C. Johnson in the 6th. I'm doing ok though and in the playoffs and on a roll right now.

I have you all beat. Hear are my first 4 picks

1st round 1st pick- Mcnabb
2nd round 24th pick- E george
3rd round 25th pick- K Rob
4th round 49th pick- James Stewart( got hurt the next day)
Before yall laugh there was a serious run on RBs in the first two rounds. The only back I passed on better than George was S. davis who went 3 picks later. If you had a worst draft than that. I am sorry. My record is 2-11 I am in last place. I did however trade Mcnabb for Owens and Pennigton. I think it will pay off big next year in the keeper league.

I used the first pick of the first round on Ricky Williams . But that's not nearly as bad as some of the horror stories you guys are telling .

My first pick was LT...not horrible...but I believe my 2nd pick was Kurt Warner....what the hell was i thinking...i could hve got A Green or S Alexander, or P Holmes...some guy picked a TE first...LOL...and i actually picked up C Johnson in the draft...and I remember when i made my selection....everyone laughed...baztads aint laughing now...LOL, but I also picked up Darrell Jackson...if only i'd have game him time before trading him away...I also got Holt in the draft.....overall, not to bad i guess.....althought...i think I only have 1 player on my team that I orignally drafted, and thats tomlinson of course.
