Not as nuts as you are for taking Willie Green in the 2nd round, Leftwich in the 4th round, and Reggie Wayne as your number one receiver in the 5th round!


If this is your dynasty league team, you should be peachy in about three years or so.

...I made the same mistake in my early draft league, though.

I drafted Larry Fitzgerald and Roy Williams ahead of Plaxico Burress and Justin McCareins. Their potential got the best of me, I 'spose... :~(

...I drafted William Green in the eighth round. ;-)

Yes that was his dynasty league team. As long as William Green stays out of the OPL (Ohio Penal League) and Onterrio gets a fair amount of carries, then Go Vikes can compete.

I'm assuming that's your assessment for next season, because in three years, he'll be destroying everyone in your league!

That's right. Even if I don't do too good these first years, I'll get good rookies and will dominate even more. I wanted three young backs too, so I took portis, green, and smith. And i like leftwich and one more guy that i will not say because he has not been taken yet.

I wouldn't say that you'll be dominating...you only have one proven player on your roster. You have some guys with upside, but why don't you wait awhile before you start saying you'll dominate.

I don't know about dominating the league in three years. You'd certainly be very lucky if all three of those RBs turn out for you.

Chances are, you could have drafted a great WR rather than William Green (or maybe even someone like Barlow, Rudi, Double D).

You probably could have drafted someone better than Leftwich if you picked him up early, too.

I'll be curious to see who this next guy you draft is.

Don't get me wrong Go Vikes, all your players have talent. But in FF, situation gets you farther than talent.
