^ This.

I hope everyone realizes that there's supposedly a good chance that Lynch is suspended for the first 4 games of 2013 due to his July 2012 DUI arrest. :-o

I don't know whether he's stupid, or self-destructive or whether his station in life gives him some sense of entitlement - or maybe some combination of the three, I see him as a ticking time bomb that will screw up again at some point so I just could never trust him and thus shy away from him in drafts. Maybe I'm just too jaded from having seen too many like him.

Lynch has only been suspended by the league once before though right? Been an idiot several times but only suspended once so if guilty he is looking at 2-4 games?

Lotsa WR's I liked at 2.11, decided to go with Decker - I'll think he'll continue to flourish with Peyton and see a slight bump in numbers for '13. Ridley only had 6 rec this season but still finished #11 RB in my PPR league thanks to the rest of his numbers - he should be solid again.

Great value on AJ Daulluz. He was my other option at 2.10. If Murray was not there I would have taken AJ. Getting older but still a stud.

Really liked Demaryius Thomas pick. Almost took him instead of Morris. Think he is in a great position to outperform this upcoming season.

Back to Morris. Is it possible that with QB injury Shanny may encourage more passes to the RBs rather than taking a beating? I know its not like Shanarat to do the smart thing, but.. :-b

That's the "other reason" that I didn't want to mention earlier. I don't think Morris will be as good as he was this year if their QB isn't back 100% and/or they decide to change the offense so the QB doesn't get hurt all the time. I think how the Redskins used him was the main problem. Option QB's are definitely more prone to injuries.


On another note, I was surprised to see Cam picked as the 3rd QB overall. I know he puts up a lot of points mostly because of his rushing yards/TD's (I think he was 4th best in fantasy points per game in this scoring system), but I wouldn't pick him any higher than the 5th or 6th overall QB.

Thanks Mooch. I had him targeted at that 2.09 spot pretty early on, and it didn't take long for me to pull the trigger.

As for my 3.04 pick... I hemmed and hawed for a few minutes on this one, but I chose Graham. He was obviously limited by the wrist injury this year, especially down the stretch. He still finished as the #1 TE in PPR. I think he is in for a HUGE 2013. Early-mid 3rd is pretty decent value, especially considering Gronk cost a first round pick, and we are about to (did already?) fall off the TE cliff shortly.

Couldn't pass up on Brady at 3.05.
