NIGHTMARE FROM HELL DRAFT ... I need "HELP"

Postby Fasteddy » Fri Aug 31, 2012 5:13 pm

12 Team Standard League Rb/WR Flex

For the 1st two rounds of my CBS draft, I was locked in AUTO SELECT Mode while my console said I wasn't. (Belive me after 35-40 mock drafts I know how the console and options work). Anyway, with the sixth pick I wind up being assigned C. Johnson and M. Lynch (not the endo the earth, but they have the same Bye wK (11) and I really wanted to start with Brady or Breese (and could have).

So I decide to trick the console and I put any future players I wanted to draft into the Queue. It worked AND it somehome unfroze the Auto-Pilot Button. Everything went well until just before Round 12 when my system completey froze on me (happened only once beforein three years,LOL).

Rnd 1, A-Pick, C Johnson, RB
Rnd 2, A-Pick, M. Lnnch, RB
Rnd 3, Drafted, J. Nelson, WR
Rnd 4, Drafted, M. Vick, RB
Rnd 5, Drafted, S. Ridely, RB
Rnd 6, Drafted, D.Jackson, WR
Rnd 7, Drafted, M. Austin. WR
Rnd 8, Drafted, RG-III, QB
Rnd 9, Drafted, J. Whitten, TE
Rnd 10, Drafted, Ravens, DST
Rnd 11, Drafted, S. Janikowski, K

Rnd 12, Auto-Pick, G. Hartley, K
Rnd 13, Auto-Pick, Packers, DST
Rnd 14, Auto-Pilot, P. Thomas, RB

Obviously, picks made in 12-14 are not pics I would have made. How do you suggest I clear up the mess and stay competitive? Any Help will be VERY VERY APPRECIATED !

Your fine at RB, Austin has to produce like he's capable and if he does you'll IMO be fine.
Drop the extra kicker for another QB for insurance to RGIII.
I'd also drop DJax for another upside WR what is available.
Your RBs look good though Ridlay went way to high.

I'm sure he did'nt catch that. Regardless, drop your 2nd kicker for almost anybody. Don't need him

I dont love any of your WR. Nelson in the third i would of stayed away from,,,i mean i have like 20WR ahead of Nelson.. Must have been a ton of good WR left at 3rd. Id say thats your worst pick. Im much bigger on Bryant than i am of austin this year. Not sure if you can fix by trade but id target a true WR1 Or try and grab cheap guys with upside,,,,Bess, Little, M williams. Desean isnt a bad sleeper this year actually so id keep him. Most hate him b/c he screwed so many last year and maclin seems like the man. I think he outperforms his adp and obv has the talent to be a WR1 (even if the talent is buried deep down inside somweher).

Oh and make sure you grab Lynch's handcuff if he is available....Turbin it looks like. Go with one K and one Def. good luck.

I really apppreciate your time BUT....... there are no 30 better WR's in the league than Jordy Nelson and his avg ADP pick is 3.09 (about where I got him). Thanks for your other suggestions.

Man it just depends on what's out there. Yeah of course you drop your kicker. You're probably gonna need a Tight End for week 1/2 as Witten likely will be benched or limited. Somebody like Olson maybe if available... YOu can see if anybody's interested in one of your D's and maybe do a P.Thomas/Defense trade for a slight upgrade somewhere. SOmebody would likely give up something for either one of your D's.... I wouldn't give much but I'm a matchup player for D's and don't draft D til 14th round.... Your team is solid but you are just gonna have to work at it a bit. Hey at least you didn't have a bunch of kickers lined up in your queue before it froze:) .... good luck
