So I had to miss the online draft for a 12 team H2H ESPN league (2 WR/2RB/FLEX, no PPR, 1 QB, standard scoring) and set the player rankings beforehand. I had a moment to check my draft spot just before the draft, and based on that draft spot I picked a few RBs for the queue that I thought I would want in the first few rounds, to be sure I got good RBs. Somehow I mis-read my draft spot and thought I had the 7th pick when I actually had the 2nd pick. To make matters worse, the 1st pick took Rodgers, so I could have had Foster in the 2nd. Because the queue trumps your draft board, this means I passed on Foster, Rice, McCoy, and the other top 2 QBs in order to take McFadden.
I actually like my team OK, but am imagining how good it would look with Foster as my RB1 makes me a little sick.
QB: Matt Ryan, Russel Wilson
RB: McFadden, R.Matthews, SJax, Doug Martin, Kevin Smith
WR: Percy Harvin, Justin Blackmon, Heyward-Bey, Amendola, Davone Bess
TE: Witten, Olsen
In a flex league, I always want more RBs than WRs. If I have a good RB, I will almost never start a WR at flex over the RB. Obviously my WRs are pretty weak, with Harvin the only unquestioned WR1-2 caliber player. But I am hoping between DHB and Blackmon, I'll be able to get serviceable RB2 play. But I can't imagine a team with better depth at RB.
Still, on a scale of 1-10, how much of a screw-up was it to miss out on Foster? Kicking myself right now.
