Player You Wanted, But Never Had The Chance To Draft

Postby cunny » Sat Sep 11, 2004 11:39 am

In all three of my leagues, I had Andre Johnson pegged as mine. In all three drafts, people were willing to jump up to 3rd or 4th round to take him. Man, I really wish I had gotten him, but I'm not losing sleep over it.

Who's the guy you had targeted, but just didn't fall far enough for you to get. Do you second guess not taking him earlier?

Plaxico Buress, although I had the chance to draft him, Boo Williams was the only good TE left (and I feel he's a huge sleeper) and I just couldn't risk losing him to get Plaxico, although now I somewhat regret that move because my depth at WR is a little thin, even though my starters are solid (Chad Johnson and Joe Horn)

I was really hoping to get Torry Holt or Randy Moss but they both went late in the first round in both my leagues. So I ended up with running backs instead of receivers - which ought to work out OK for me when people realize that their early WR picks didn't help them as much as starting a RB should - and I'll be trading my bench for hot receivers. I mean, hot as in point-scoring-studs - not hot as in "I wanna sleep with them hot." Not that there's anything wrong with that.

LT2 and Moss were 2 I would have wanted on at least 1 of my teams, never had the draft position to get one of them. My best chance was a #2 pick, but LT2 went Number 1, so this is the first time I've ever had Holmes on a fantasy team.

My league rewards QB's and D's more than most, and I had late picks in the 2nd and 4th rounds (12 team league, keep as many guys as you want but 3 rounds before draft-round year before), so I was hoping to scoop Trent Green and the Baltimore D with those picks, which was well before every analysis I read said to go with them, so I figured those would safely be there.

Trent Green went on the 16th pick!!! 8-o (and Culpepper went #6 (!) to another team, with McAllister and Edge still on the board; that team will suck). That was shocking. And Baltimore went with the 3rd pick of the 4th round, so I was out of luck there too. The good news was that in the mad dash to get QBs, Ds, and RBs, Koren Robinson fell like a stone to me at the end of the 4th round to be my 3rd WR, so I have depth at that position, and I still ended up with Steve McNair and Dallas at my QB and D positions, so I'm assuming I ended up OK.. ;-D

I wanted Chris Brown, and didn't get him in either draft. In one of them a guy selected him with the pick right in front of me. :-P

Can't bitch too much though, my starters are E. James/M. Faulk and L. Tomlinson/J. Lewis. ;-D

Pennington. Had him as a 5th or 6th round selection and came as close as the pick before me getting him. I usually always draft a QB late but got royally screwed for waiting so long this year.

Same here. My league jumped on QBs real early, and another run started (on backups!) right before I was set to take my starter, Favre. I ended up with Carr and Palmer...yikes.
I really wanted Charles Rogers, but he was taken in round 4.

Koren Ronbinson and J.McCereins (sp?).

I couldn't believe how high some people took McCereins in 2 of my leagues. I also wanted him in my dynasty league and he went in like the 4th! I mean, c'mon! Hes a #2! :-b

Your choice of the top 6 RBs. I never drafted better than 7th in any of my leagues this year.
