Did I Draft Correctly?

Postby aalkatrio » Thu Sep 05, 2013 12:05 pm

Wondering if I drafted correctly. I read online to take RB's early. I was fortunate with going first in my 12 team league. Thanks in advance for your comments!

QB Eli Manning, NYG
RB Adrian Peterson, Min
RB Matt Forte, Chi
RB/WR Stevan Ridley, NE
WR Roddy White, Atl
WR Vincent Jackson, TB
TE Fred Davis, Wsh
D/ST Buccaneers
K Josh Brown, NYG

Bench T.Y. Hilton, Ind
Bench BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Cin
Bench Steve Johnson, Buf
Bench Shane Vereen, NE
Bench Isaac Redman, Pit
Bench Ryan Broyles, Det
Bench Jake Locker, Ten

Very solid RB's & WR's, Eli is good, not big on a Locker but he's okay for Eli's bye week and may even be a spot starter. Hopefully Davis is 100% - keep an eye on the waiver wire for hot TE's, I might drop Green-Ellis for another TE if he doesn't produce this year. I don't like TB at D/ST - what other defenses are available?

i think you did awesome, keep a lookout for TE, as for the defense, play tampa's defense week 1 as they have an awesome matchup, you will change that out week to week anyways. Good luck :D

I took Locker in the last round because he was the best available at the time. We did a 12 team draft and 3 of them took 3 QBs. As for the defense, I originally drafted the Ravens defense, but thought that Tampa Bay had a better matchup. Most of the good ranking TE's are gone, but are there any suggestions that might still be out there? Any sleepers I should jump on? Thanks for the comments!

So I'm facing someone that has Wes Welker, so not happy about that. But it could be worse, I could of been playing against the team that has Peyton...
