    Really!! You think so, True i'm banking on alot of 2nd year WR's, but i think jones will be top 3 by end, and Brown will be better then wallace. torrey i'm hoping for 10 tD's, and Brady is top 3.

    Re: TORREY SMITH - live on NFLN

    I ended up having to get Cutler and Dalton, but the guy that picked Flacco in the round before I was going to get him has both QB's on the same bye week, so I'm hawking the waiver wire for Flacco. May end up offering him a trade for Cutler to see if he bites. I got Julio Jones, A. J. Green and Torrey Smith as my WR's. Hope my strategy works out since it's a ppr league.

    I don't think so. I'd have to see the full roster to tell though.

    LOL...needless to say we were all stunned. I mean the only WR that went ahead of Torrey in that draft was Megatron. Torrey went before Fitzgerald and all the other WR's.

    I thought he'd be a nice sleeper in the middle rounds too, but that's what happens when you have a draft with a bunch of co-workers who are fans of the same team. And it is only a 10 team league.

    LOL.

    A friend of mine told me in one of his drafts there is a huge Patriot fan. He drafted Brady, Gronk, Welker, Hernandez, Ridley, Lloyd, Gostkowski and the Pats defense.

    Billy Cundiff, 2nd round. No lie. I about fell off my chair when a guy did that in our league.

    i've seen a kicker go before they picked a qb. i've seen two kickers taken. but that takes the cake.

    I had a guy in a public ESPN draft take 2 defenses (Steelers and Bears) and 2 kickers (Hartley and Gostkowski) before he took a QB or a RB. That draft was a debacle for me as well...it was an auction and I tried to bid $11 on AJ Green, but the $0 didn't overwrite like I was expecting it to, so I spent $110 on AJ Green. Despite that, because that guy wasted 4 high picks on DEF and K, I still wound up with Matt Stafford and Larry Fitzgerald.

    Re: TORREY SMITH - live on NFLN

    Talk about weird FF theories:

    I had someone in a league take Gronk and Graham in the first two rounds. Our league has a W/R/T flex spot and they both had WR1 numbers last year...so I can forgive it.

    BUT

    The same guy, did not take a kicker OR defense.

    Instead, he picked the other starter positions and his bench consists of ALL RBs. No other positions.

    He has no decent RBs but also cornered the entire handcuff market.

    I'm guessing he is waiting a week or two, hoping a guy or two gets hurt and the backup blows up and he can pick up a kicker and defense later.

    Just seems like a weird strategy that is very high risk/reward. So he's either a genuis or doofus. We shall see.

    My general philosophy is to play DEF and K on a week-by-week basis, but to only carry RBs on the bench is pretty bizarre.

    Pats defense is probably good for negative points. I usually try to draft a Raven, I play IDP so Ray Lewis is my go to guy. This year everyone I targeted, Rice Flacco, Torrey, Ray, Ravens Defense, went way to high. The fan in me couldn't overcome the competitor.

    I had a dude who drafted Smith in the 2nd, Flacco in the 3rd, WEBB IN THE 6TH, and later got Dickson, Jones, Pitta...we were like WTF. Then he snags Bernard Pierce in FA. Needless to say everyone in the league looks forward to the week they play him

    Especially week 8.

    We all laughed at a newbie two years ago who basically did the same thing, but he actually ended up okay.
