That looks like a decent team, although I do not see anyone besides McCaffrey that I would have taken with a top-24 pick. WR is a bit weak, but that is probably the position where late-rounders and waiver pickups are most likely to contribute.

WR is a disaster. Banking on either Kirk or Moncrief/Washington to emerge as a WR2. Gonna dump one of the Smiths for a defense

Yes, I was surprised Zeke slid to 8th, although the league is full of Steeler and Eagle fans. I was surprised that Rams D fell to me in the 11th; otherwise I would have taken Pollard then. Cam Newton was a mouse-slip, but I wanted McDonald and he was still available with my 8th rounder. Yes, the short bench makes handcuffs less popular. I would not have taken Pollard over Ballage without Zeke on my roster. Sign, Zeke, Sign!

I grabbed Ballage in the 13th round of a 14-round draft. I was planning to take a kicker because the four teams drafting in between my last two picks still needed kickers, but Ballage was too good to pass up.

TE: Andrews (12)
D: Browns (14)
K: Myers (16/Mr. Irrelevant)

Pretty much got the guys I was looking for. Was a pleasant surprise to see Evans fall to the end of the second round, and glad that Goff and Andrews lasted as long as they did. Betting heavily on Gordon holding out the season so got the other 2 Bolts RBs. Montgomery was a bit of a reach but I'm buying into the hype. Ballage was buried deeply in ESPN rankings so I might have been able to wait longer on him, but Drake's injury gives him a chance to play a bigger role in the offense.

Full PPR
5th overall pick, 12 teams
Draft was on Saturday at noon and was 50% auto drafters.

This draft was pretty bad

QB: Wilson(6) horrible pick, misjudged autodrafting QB run.

RB: Zeke(1), Kerryon Johnson (3), Josh Jacobs(4), Ekeler (9), Breida(10), Anthony Miller(12)

WR: Evans(2), Kupp (5), Fuller(7), Robby Andersen(8)

TE: Ebron (11), Waller(13)

K: Badgley (13) planning to stream

DEF: Eagles (14) planning to stream

If Zeke plays and Melvin Gordon doesn't, I will be okay with this team.

I'm in two leagues this year:


League 1:

QB: Brady
RB: Josh Jacobs
RB: Ito Smith
WR: Beckham
WR: Juju
WR: K. Allen
TE: Eifert
Flex: Ridley
OP: Michael Thomas

Bench: A bunch of backup RBs that will be RB2s if the starter gets hurt, the most intriguing of which is Dare Ogunawable from TB.

This was a bizarre auction draft - so much value (according to the model I created in 10 minutes) at the WR spot that I couldn't stop myself. I'm in a lot of trouble at RB, but I can flip a WR for a RB+TE deal if I need to. I'm hoping Eifert rebounds this year, and I want to pick up a QB off the waiver wire to start in my OP2 spot - there's currently nobody, so this will require an injury. Regardless, I should survive Week 1, as my opponent has Elliott.


Team: 2

QB: Rodgers
RB: Kamara
RB: Aaron Jones
WR: Calvin Ridley
WR: Tyler Boyd
Flex: Damien Williams
TE: Vance McDonald
Def: I don't remember. Eagles?
K: Lutz

Bench: Mark Andrews, James Washington, Allen Robinson.

Pretty standard half PPR team here. I took Kamara #2 and just got on the RB train after that.

Surprised that Ekeler was available that late in PPR, seems more likely that he won't be on the Bolts anytime soon this season, if at all.

Missed being there live for round 1 because I forgot about the draft yeah, I forgot.

Anyway.

1 (auto): David Johnson, Ari RB
2: Tyreek Hill, KC WR
3: Matt Ryan, Atl QB
4: Aaron Rodgers, GB QB
5: Brandin Cooks, LAR WR
6: Jared Cook, NO TE
7: Bears D/ST
8: Alshon Jeffrey, Phi WR
9: Duke Johnson Jr., Hou RB
10: Devin Singletary, Buf RB
11: Emmanuel Sanders, Den WR
12: Jarvis Landry, Cle WR
13: Kyle Murray, Ari QB
14: Justin Tucker, Bal K
15: LeSean McCoy, KC RB
16: Latavius Murray, NO RB
17: Tress Way, Wsh P
18: Michael Gallup, Dal WR

I feel like this roster isn't too bad, considering (1) I never know what the hell I'm doing, and (2) half my team will be lost to injury by mid-season anyway.

Is this a 2QB league? I think you have some good value picks after round 8.

Yeah, 2 QB... I could've also drafted Tom Brady, but I didn't think to until I saw someone else do it.

I think you did well drafting Kyler. When it came to Fantasy points last season, Brady was meh, and at age 42 I don't expect that to improve. Kyler's mobility gives him a lower floor than Brady IMO, and the offense is designed for him to light it up like he did for Oklahoma.
