FIRST DRAFT PICKS FOR NEXT YEAR

Moderator: Football Moderators

Rounds 4-7 are critical, yes, as your first 2-3 rounds should be spent on picking obvious stud RBs, you would need definitely to pick out the best remaining QB and two or three WRs before possibily dipping into the RB pool again. My 1st 6 rounds looked like this on draft day:

Ricky
Jamal
C-mart
Kerry Collins
Toomer
Hambrick
(Next 3 rounds were WRs- Keyshawn, Derrick Mason and maybe Troy Brown- really made out there, huh?)

After round 10, things can get really dicey and you definitely have to know football because those are the rounds that can make or break your depth.

Ricky and Jamal were good picks. Jamal didn't go until the 6th in my league, kind of lament some of those earlier picks. This is how draft day looked for me (8 teams):

Culpepper (autodrafted round 1 before i logged on)
Moss (people thought it was a bad pick)
Alexander
Holt
Green Bay (rookie mistake... everyone was picking DEF and I thought I should too)
Stephen Davis
Gonzo
KRob
McNair
Shipp in the 12th and ATrain in the 14th

If I were psychic (this would have been very possible):
Holmes
Moss
Ahman
Holt
Jamal Lewis
Gonzo
Baltimore DEF
Vanderjagt
McNair


imagine that?

Ahman doesn't strike me as a solid keeper pick. Davenport and Fisher are creeping up and his fumbling issues continue. Plus, if Favre does leave, the offense will look lost.

My first choice for RB would be Tomlinson, true the Chargers suck, but they're also young and growing as a team, and Tomlinson is what the team is built around. Brees will improve and Boston will hopefully be a bigger threat and keep teams from piling up on LT. He also has to be one of the healthiest backs in the league.

Who would pick Sharpe in a keeper league? Isn't he retiring after the season?

I'm going to buck the trend here. My first round picks next year would be:

QB - Kordell Stewart
RB - Olandis Gary
WR - C. Conway
TE - S.Meier
K - J.Hanson
D - Atlanta


You laugh now, you just wait, watch, and see! }:-)

Can't tell if you're serious, but the Atlanta D should be a top fantasy defense next year.

I'm not. Just having a little fun. Can't be serious all the time. ;-D

I think you were trying to be nice. There is no way you actually thought I was serious. I picked the bottom of each specialty.

Cpepp and LT with their off-and-on play this year? Personally, I would find somebody a little more consistent. What's your reasoning?

I was surprised New England D wasn't getting more fantasy love.


As was I - this team has the potential to be #1 fantasy D...especially with the shutout over Miami...man they looked solid
