Drafted both Griffin and Thomas late even though they didn't have a place in my starting line-up knowing that if they started off well I could get some serious value for them. Was able to fill some major holes in both leagues for late picks I couldn't justify starting over my higher round sure fire players.
After two weeks i'm in first place in both my money leagues and just got better.
My draft plan has always been to use my higher draft picks on sure thing players and take risks in the later rounds. Let everyone else take risks in the higher rounds (I.E. Doug Martin) and if their risk works out and I need that player and one of my lower round risks does just as well I've got myself a nice trading opportunity.
I spend around 6 picks on risky players knowing that I only need to hit on 2 of them or so and I'll be set because those guys can start while the ones I dont hit on I can replace with hot waiver wire pick ups.
Don't see a point in drafting a guy like Ed Dickson late because you need a back-up TE for your bye week. I like my way better.
