ugh... how bad is it? WHIR

Postby GreekPimpSlap » Sat Aug 25, 2012 8:47 pm

so i had a plan... and much like any plan, it all goes to sh*t once you get hit in the mouth. I got hit in the mouth rd4 when i wanted to reach for aaron hernandez but took DeSen Jackson by mistake and didnt realize i had a 5th round keeper which means my next pick wouldnt be until the 6th round. obviously the TE rush ocurred and it just threw my whole plan down the toilet.

this is a 10 team keeper league. start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1Flex (WR/RB), 1TE, 1K, 1DST. standard scoring. Max 3 keepers. can keep twice. This is the last year I'm able to keep CJ0.5K and Foster. Keepers noted by (K). I was 4th pick:

RD01 - Pick 004 - Chris Johnson (K)
RD02 - Pick 017 - Trent Richardson
RD03 - Pick 024 - Michael Vick
RD04 - Pick 037 - DeSean Jackson
RD05 - Pick 044 - Arian Foster (K)
RD06 - Pick 057 - Willis McGahee
RD07 - Pick 064 - Roy Helu
RD08 - Pick 077 - Robert Griffin III
RD09 - Pick 084 - Malcolm Floyd
RD10 - Pick 097 - Texans DST
RD11 - Pick 104 - Brandon Pettigrew
RD12 - Pick 117- Victor Cruz (K)
RD13 - Pick 124 - Kendall Wright
RD14 - Pick 137 - Daniel Thomas
RD15 - Pick 144 - Jermaine Gresham
RD16 - Pick 157 - Dan Bailey

technically i think i screwed up before the draft even began. last year i picked up AJ green in like the 8th round. i should have marked his as my keeper instead of Chris Johnson. i know its preseason but, from what i saw, i'm not too excited about CJ this year.

i think i took Trent a bit too high. i mean... he's on the browns... c'mon now...

I really like vick, but i know i needed a quality backup QB for when, not if, he gets hurt which expains the RGIII pick. plus, i figured that if RGIII blows up like cam I'll have a quality keeper for next year.

I hate the McGahee, Helu, Floyd, Thomas picks

I'm meh on Pettigrew which is why i also picked up Gresham

I didnt want to pic up a DST that early but there was a run on DST's and i had no choice. I love the Texans DST last year but i dont think they are going to be as good this year.

After watching the preseason games, i have high hopes for Kendall Wright. especially with Britt coming back from injury and suspension.

those are my thoughts... what are yours ?

I like Trent Richardson, you can expect him to get around 300 carries, he's gonna be good, and like you said he's on the browns.
Your team looks stout, I have never played in a keeper league so I don't really know what a roster should and shouldn't look like.
WR might look like a weak link in the armor. But your ready for battle with that lineup.

Your WRs are terrible after Cruz and DJax one of those even has a huge question mark.

That being said, you can't complain about having CJ2K, Foster, and Richardson all in a league you can start 3 RBs. All 3 will get 85% of the carries on their teams.

Help me?
