That while I will be updating as we go along, this 10-team, combination scoring league I am doing at antsports.com has thus far shown a trend towards the RB.
I picked 4th - Portis (4th back taken)
17th - Moss (3rd WR, 14 RB taken so far)
I'll update this sporadically, but I have predrafted for RB at the 24th spot (unless Lewis, Taylor, Davis, Bennett, and William Green all go, in which case I'll get Moulds or Horn) and WR at the 37th spot, unless one of the aforementioned RB is still there or the 12 WR I ranked are all gone, in which case I get Manning, Culpepper, or McNabb...
At #44, I can guaranteed have Canidate, Barlow, Hambrick, or Mack. Think I'll do that, see if Manning is still around at #57. If not, I'll go WR, and probably QB at #64. Some great QB still around, probably not too many will do their backups that early.
Just trying to put a little Cafe knowledge outside of the Cafe, and report back. After all, there are very few leagues where every owner has access to the same information, thought it might be helpful to see what a little "hands-on" work might bring.
Probably do a 12-team Mock Draft next week, if I ever get this one done. People who don't predraft chafe my derriere. Toned down language does not anger mods. Hmm. Grunt
You are very lucky to get Lewis that late. He went in the first round in a draft I am in. And if you think you have a bunch of RB's going, in that same league 15 running backs were taken with the first 15 picks.
Joe, you're right, it slowed up considerably, but 13 out of 15 picks was still practical validation, even more validation I should say, of the "get the RB" theory.
I should have titled the thread "You CAN wait on a QB". 60 picks in, and two teams, including mine, still don't have QBs. I've predrafted, and know I'll get Maddox, Pennington, Favre, or McNair. I can live with that. Probably get one of them as my back up in round 8 or 9...
If not one of them, Hasselbeck, Brooks, Johnson, Collins, Green or Brady. All good.
I guess we should shut the thread down because the backs have dried up. However, it was:
11 out of 11
12 out of 14
14 out of 17
15 out of 19
16 out of 24
17 out of 27
18 out of 30
20 out of 38
24 out of 51
26 out of 55
