  • TO, was that on auto draft? Wouldn't be mad about Best or Williams to be honest.

    I don't think I'll be around tonight so feel free to boot 4thandforever if space is needed.

    If not I'll try setting a draft board and see what sort of team I end up with.




  • I'm not around tonight either, so boot me out

    1st 3 picks were all me then I set a draft order to finish it out. Not a bad draft.

    Maclin at 15 bucks would be sensational value imo, you did very well on that one. Would be a nice team to enter a league with - but no backup QB?

    You spent way too much money and if you get injuries you are fooked. My biggest mistake playing auction leagues for the first time was doing the same thing. Auction leagues are won by guys who are able to dabble on the free agency because they didn't blow their budget in the draft. If we get another NFL season like last season the odds suggest that you will run into roster problems. Food for thought :D




  • Do you keep unspent money for FA?

    This my second attempt, this time determined not to blow the budget too early:

    QB Eli Manning 29
    RB Steven Jackson 21
    RB Ahmad Bradshaw 18
    WR Hakeem Nicks 32
    WR Brandon Lloyd 13
    TE Jermichael Finley 6
    FLEX Roy Helu 14
    D/ST 49ers D/ST 1
    K David Akers 1
    BE BenJarvus Green-Ellis 13
    BE Steve Johnson 15
    BE Doug Martin 6
    BE Michael Bush 8
    BE Aaron Hernandez 4
    BE Doug Baldwin 1
    BE Donald Brown 2
    Total: 184
    Remaining: 16

    Brady went for 47, might have been a better option than Manning. I still have no backup QB, tohugh I have to say I enjoy the Auction format, just need to come up with a decent strategy.

    Depends on the league but for the most part yup. Some leagues give you an extra 100m but it all depends on the GM who created. Anyone who knows FF will make you spend your left over cash to make it more competitive. It then punishes those idiots who drive up prices in the auction.

    Getting Lloyd, Finley, Hernandez and Martin for 29 bucks is very good going. How many teams are in these mocks you're doing?




  • anyone in the mock tonight ? Think there's only 2 of us online atm !

  • anyone in the mock tonight ? Think there's only 2 of us online atm !

    Just joined. Quiet night in so may aswell! Ugh, #2 pick :(




  • Spot 11 tonight. Good change. CJ1.2Ks spot, no way do I trust him, I like Fitz here. Or Gronk.




  • Just joined. Quiet night in so may aswell! Ugh, #2 pick :(

    had no.1 in a 20 team draft last night, the wait was unbearable as was the quality of players available for my 2nd pick !




  • that was such a waste of time :(




  • Picking 2nd overall tonight.

    6(95). Jay Cutler

    1(2). LeSean McCoy
    4(63). Stevan Ridley
    7(98). Ben Tate
    11(162). Daniel Thomas

    2(31). Brandon Marshall
    3(34). Jordy Nelson
    5(66). Eric Decker
    8(127). Jon Baldwin
    12(191). Jerome Simpson
    13(194). Randall Cobb

    9(130). Kyle Rudolph
    10(159). Jermaine Gresham

    14(223). Robbie Gould

    15(226). Minnesota Vikings Def/ST

    So I completely forgot to draft a backup QB, but anyway. Would be happy with that depth, and while the Vikings Def/ST might look dodgy, I always play that on a week to week basis from waivers, and with Harvin on special teams and the Jaguars in Week 1, I think Vikings are a good pick.




  • Here's my draft for today (picking 11 of course), most don't need explaining except for Mendenhall, who is a depth pick, and I wouldn't be using him before week 10 anyway hopefully. Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal are 2 players, one of whom I fancy to break out because Rivers is throwing to them.

    1. Rob Gronkowski
    2. DeMarco Murray
    3. Fred Jackson
    4. Philip Rivers
    5. Antonio Brown
    6. Darrius Heyward-Bey
    7. Mike Williams
    8. Sebastien Janikowski
    9. Donald Brown
    10. Rashard Mendenhall
    11. Brandon LaFell
    12. Christian Ponder
    13. Panthers defense
    14. Vincent Brown
    15. Eddie Royal




  • I don't understand the point of not drafting a defense and kicker with your two last picks. If you draft all position players then your going to have to drop 2 for the week anyway.




  • 1. PICK 12 Chris Johnson RB - TEN
    2. PICK 21 Trent Richardson RB - CLE

    I think they are 12 team leagues but there are always a few on auto pick.




  • 1. PICK 12 Chris Johnson RB - TEN
    I don't think he'll come back but clearly you do.
    2. PICK 21 Trent Richardson RB - CLE
    Nice pick.
    3. PICK 44 Brandon Lloyd WR - NE
    4. PICK 53 Vernon Davis TE - SF
    Ditto.
    5. PICK 76 Kenny Britt WR - TEN
    No need to say anything.
    6. PICK 85 James Starks RB - GB
    A starter at RB, good depth at 85.
    8. PICK 117 Andrew Luck QB - IND
    I wouldn't want him starting, I don't think Chuck Pagano will give him enough opportunities.
    9. PICK 140 Doug Baldwin WR - SEA
    10.PICK 149 Greg Olsen TE - CAR
    2 great picks.
    11.PICK 172 Alex Smith QB - SF

    13.PICK 204 Lamar Miller RB - MIA
    14.PICK 213 Josh Scobee K - JAC

    Meh.

    I clearly nothing and dont think anything about Johnson. I dont take Mock Drafts serious and they generally have no reflection on how I pick. Everytime I pick in a mock I jot it down as a scenario of what to do and what not to do. Its also good to see where people lean when certain guys are taken off the board. Just like a pre-season friendly I give nothing away and use it to scout. Besides Mocks are all about What ifs for me its that simple.

    I wouldn't want him starting, I don't think Chuck Pagano will give him enough opportunities.

    Colts run game will suck cock and they will have to go to the air to get anything done. Luck will see plenty of action.

    But hey thank you for picking my mock out and giving your opinion I look forward to your opinion on everyone else's.




  • 6(95). Jay Cutler
    Love it. If you get that in the real thing it will be the value pick of the draft.
    1(2). LeSean McCoy
    I can see no reason why he would slow down, I think it should be him or Rice vying for the number one pick.

    2(31). Brandon Marshall
    You're not the only one to be in love with Cutler-Marshall. It's amazing what Cutler did without a good receiver, and what Marshall did without a QB like Cutler, so it should be a great fantasy combo reunited.
    3(34). Jordy Nelson
    13(194). Randall Cobb
    Can't go wrong with Packers receivers.
    5(66). Eric Decker
    I really hope I can pick him.

    I figured I'm only posting them here to get opinions on my picks and figured I can't expect opinions if I don't give them. It's the best way to discuss fantasy prospects. Your draft was eye-catching though.

    Meh.

    Alex Smith was 16th best QB in Fantasy last season. He had a worse WR corp last year than this coming season and the 49ers liked to run the ball. Not a bad QB to have on the books to backup Luck or start ahead of Luck.

    Im going to pick out this though. You say meh but you are forgetting if Bowe holds out Breaston is now number 1 and has shown that he can catch footballs with sh1t QBs throwing to him Cassel can and will get footballs to him. Besides he is still not a bad number 2 if Bowe does eventually sign.

    Miller is one of those rookies you grab and dump in the first couple of days after drafting this early and replace him with another rookie or backup player.

    Scobee is a solid kicker and get in and around the avg 10 points kickers are expected to get every week so you say meh I say there are 20 kickers in Fantasy that will get you the minimum points expected Scobee being one of them.

    Bengals defense is not bad for a last pick. Considering all the Top D's are gone I dont feel defenses get enough consistent points every week to warrant anything other than a last pick.

    But again I thank you for your breakdown.

    It's not that they'd be bad (and infact they're very good value) picks, it's just I'm not very motivated to write about the 11th-15th round.

    So you would say meh about someones picks just because they are in the 11th-15th round rather than their abilities in fantasy? Ok that makes a lot of sense.

    On reflection there was no need to say anything, and when I had a look at JMH's mock I only commented on picks that caught my eye. The draft is unpredictable and by the time you get to the 11th-15th round it's very hard to get an idea of who you're going to pick, as opposed to who you would pick in the first couple of rounds.
