I have Stafford in the elite QB tier, so I was happy to get him at 5.10. He threw for just under 5000 yards, and his TD's were down from 2011, but I think they'll go up next year. I really like the Steve Smith pick. If I knew a QB wasn't going to be picked at the turn (I really thought 1 would be picked), I would've picked him and then Stafford at 6.03. To thrifty & TNF: Would either of you picked Stafford at the turn if I didn't pick him at 5.10?
With that said, I really like Shorts this year. He was the 20th ranked WR (fantasy points per game) in this scoring format, so I'm happy getting him as the 30th overall WR.
