Cam Newton. Got him in two my three leagues. But I've been able to overcome his shortcomings this year.

Definitely Matt Stafford. I was sold on top 5 QB and Gronk or Graham as the winning formula. Stafford bounced back, but I had him miles ahead of Matt Ryan. He was my #2 pick #15 overall, and I wound up trading him low with Jordy Nelson for RGIII.

I underestimated the entire Falcons team and overvalued the niners team(I thought LaMichael James could be like Sproles...).

I have some other posts about players I talked up or down and they did the opposite, but my biggest mistake was drafting Fitzgerald(#18) over AP(#23). I thought AP would fall further, and I thought having a stud/consistent WR was more important than another RB that may get hurt. I never really tried to move Fitz because I kept thinking he'd bounce back. I was able to grab Leshoure off waivers and trade for Doug Martin(traded Romo after week 1, worked out pretty well for me ;-D ), but had I picked AP I could have traded Romo+another for maybe his AJ green or Brandon Marshall instead of Martin. That owner undervalued Peyton Manning after one week which is how I swung Romo for Martin. He's got the most points scored with all 3 of his RBs getting hurt(McFadden, Murray, Matthews), so perhaps my good WR theory is right, I just picked the wrong one.

Overvalued Spiller lol.

In my big money league, my starters were:

Q - Eli
R - McFadden, Mathews
W - Fitzgerald, Jordy


That's going about as well as you'd expect. Started 0-2, went to 5-2, now I'm 5-7.

Well might have to retract my statement about Cam if he keeps putting up numbers like he has the next three weeks.

Aaron Rodgers. Was my pick in the first round. Picked up Peyton Manning much later as a backup, and in retrospect he would have carried my team just fine over Rodgers (especially the last 4 weeks, Manning has averaged 10 more ppg over that strech), and I would have been stronger at RB or WR with that 1st round pick. Oh well.

Haha in my league:

1 pt 20 yards passing
3 pt passing td
1 pt 10 yards rushing
6 pt rushing td

Cam Newton is SECOND OVERALL (exactly .5 points behind RG3)

I would say he is doing okay this season.

Vernon Davis. He started out a stud, then just disappeared. I've spelled him with Brandon Myers with little success. Thankfully, the position hasn't killed me. Matthew Stafford is another I haven't been too happy with, but I have Luck which has helped.
