my work league Brees got taken #2 overall...and someone took Pierre Thomas #6 overall
but those are the only two that didn't know what they were doing, and the rest of us understood that it was a bit crazy...
actually Brees is probably as safe as it gets, but you still have to take a RB there this year...
and then I heard of another league someone I know was in where Peterson fell all the way to #6...Rodgers was drafted #1, CJ #2, MJD #3, Rice #4, Brees #5, and Peterson #6...
In my third pay league ($100 per person), Peterson fell all the way to 7th. I was shocked.
1. Chris Johnson
2. Ray Rice
4. Aaron Rodgers
5. Drew Brees
6. Andre Johnson
7. Adrian Peterson
It made me wish I had the 7th pick instead of the first pick, although I ended up with an amazing squad anyway.
Maybe people have the same gut feeling about AP that I do this year. I would still draft him Top 4 even with my injury fears.
My work league is a bit of a joke... It is sort of funny, because this is a league literally filled with sports writers, but many don't understand FF all that well. Knowing football isn't enough... You have to understand how this game really works and importance of certain positions over others.
Here is how my team came out in my work league:
QB: Aaron Rodgers
RB: Steven Jackson
RB: LeSean McCoy
WR: Greg Jennings
WR: Wes Welker
WR: Terrell Owens
TE: Jason Witten
K: Phil Dawson
You can only play two RBs at once, which is absolute garbage... But I am loaded there.
When you play the matchup option (which is clearly the best and most entertaining way to do it), you are sometimes going to run into that kind of thing. The league-leader in my big, big money league last year (winner gets $1,500), the guy with the highest point total for the season didn't even make the playoffs. That is an extreme case, though.
He literally got his opponents' season-best performance every week.
Btw, the above isn't even my best team this year, I don't think. That would probably be my No. 2 highest money league (winner gets $800).
I posted it a few weeks ago when we first held our draft, but here goes again... I think it may even beat Marlo's team.
QB: Matt Ryan
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Reggie Wayne
WR: Greg Jennings
WR: Mike Wallace
Flex: Arian Foster
TE: Antonio Gates
QB: Ben Roethlisberger
RB: Jerome Harrison, Darren McFadden
WR: Hakeem Nicks, Mohammad Massaquoi
TE: Ben Watson, Aaron Hernandez
...and, yes.... It is a 12-man, PPR league.
