Oh - not only do we play FF, some of these guys have like 7 teams I only have 2 & was a total homer last year w/my Phins:There's a Forum here (below the Main Boards) where it's more detailed:Fantasy Football / Mock DraftI had Ricky last year & he was very inconsistent week to week. Same w/Fasano (used him a lot in the Flex position). I dunno if I trust Henne just yet as a starter (for my leagues) - maybe a backup (last year I had Philip Rivers)....I also had Dan Carpenter & that was a good choice.
My drafts aren't until Sept 2nd & 3rd ..... - I need to do some Mocks, tho ....

I've joined a fantasy team for the first ever time. Am quite excited about it to be honest. I was picking last in a group of twelve so it was nice getting two picks in a row each time. I took Peyton and Wayne first. Prob should of picked a second defence but didn't know you could. My team, '4th and Schlong' is as follows:
Starters. QB Peyton Manning RB Ryan GrantRB Joseph Addai WR Derrick MasonWR Reggie WayneWR DeSean Jackson TE Jermichael Finley
K Adam Vinatieri Chicago Bears Defense. Bench
QB Tim Tebow He was 'Mr irrelevant'. I figured Peyton will play every week. On his bye Tim plays the Raiders. WR's Dez Bryant Davone Bess RB's Laurence Maroney Reggie Bush Brian WestbrookWhat do you guys think of my first ever draft class??

How many teams are in your league? Looks like 12? Not a bad roster if so. I don't think Tebow should be on your team (and not just because I'm a Nole but it's unsure on whether he even plays this year a lot. Also, the Raiders have a pretty good defense, as far as your bye week mentality).You do not need a second defense. You can always make room for one when your bye week comes or even drop your defense if it's not any good. I never draft more than one kicker, defense, or tight end and the only time I have 2 on my team is if I have one of the best at that position. You can get a top 3 kicker and a top 3 defense off the waiver wire virtually every single year. Just keep an eye on the stats of available players at K and DEF for the first 3 weeks or so and you will find a couple gems. I'd try to upgrade over Tebow and Bess (there have to be available players better at each position unless you are in a 14 team league or something.)

ED - so, you've crossed over to the dark side, huh?? You'll become like an addict & have to take "stat hits" every chance you get - every computer you walk past, every football sports highlight, every ticker tape rolling across the screen - when you start checking your stats on the toilet, then you KNOW you've gone over the edge Otherwise, it's great time-consuming fun
Timing is EVERYTHING, too, because there've been times when my guys have gotten hurt in practice & I caught wind of it & jumped on the 'puter right away to pick someone else up & literally, within less than 60 seconds, my choice(s) were gone So it's SERIOUS business DeSean was a fantastic pickup because he returns punts (I'd say the best in the game, & you can really rack it w/those returners) - but a lot of Fecals fans are uncomfortable w/him in that role (understandable).Agreed w/DCNoles on the K & Def - you can ALWAYS pick up an acceptable substitute (they're not worth carrying extras on your roster spots), and I don't know about y'all but it makes me physically ILL when I have to drop my good K/Def on their byes & some other ahole comes along & picks them up It's helpful to glance @ when the byes are BEFORE you draft, but sometimes you have to grab first & make adjustments later....
Just on TEs: I watched Visanthe Shiancoe (sp?) last year & was SOOO mad I didn't grab him when I had the chance I won't make that mistake again this year if I can help it (BRT - if you're reading this - close your eyes )....him & J Finley.My boy Chris Cooley got injured last year, but I was pretty happy w/Heath Miller/Fasano.Last year, I wanted Marion Barber BADLY & now I'm glad I didn't get him....he's not even on my radar this year.It may be the wrong strategy, but I look @ the matchups more than I do individual stats I know Chzamp does ESPN, but are y'all on Yahoo leagues?
