I think that's a little early, but my league is very QB favorable as well, so I had to reach for one too. I think your season is dependant on Griffin if your roster stays the same. He's the quintessential high risk/high reward guy this year, so it could be great, or it could be shitty. I have Flacco as my backup as well, considering dropping him for Locker though. I'm a Matthew Berry disciple, so I'm expecting a decent year for the Titans offense this season.

Since you pointed out WR as being your weakness, I'll give my opinion on that as well. Jackson's athletic ability alone will help him get targets, and given the fact that he's used to playing in an offense where his QB likes to scramble to buy himself time for his receivers to get open, I think that favors him. Not a huge fan of his attitude and route running, but hopefully Griffin's charisma can pick up D-Jax's motivation. Maclin's a sneaky pick, I don't love or hate him as your WR2. In Philly's high octane offense, everyone's going to get touches, and Maclin's certainly no exception. Watkins and Austin are great late picks, too.

thank you sorry it was 12 man league. I actually think i drafted jennings in the 3rd round lol. I am thinking about trading rg3.. RG3 and Tate will it get me manning I doubt it =(

You essentially got 2 top 5 WRs, 2 RBs with top-12 potential, a Flex with top-12 WR potential and a QB who was awesome last year and can very well be a top-10 QB this year.

I also like your RB depth despite your decision to wait on RBs. I think I might take this route in my draft this year.



Yes. Rivers I think I took round 8. Went Megatron, Dez, Morris, Cruz, then Bush. Morris wasn't great last year reception wise but I'm hoping Gruden opens up the offense and Morris can get some catches in the open field like Giovanni Bernard did.

Baltimore Defense

What do you guys think?

I know I am thin in WR's

Hopefully its a 18 team league.

Who was your third round pick?

EDIT: Just saw your other post. Rashad. Yikes. And no way RG3 and Tate gets you Manning.

3 round pick was Jennings
4 round pick was Jackson
5 round pick was RG3

I had a chance to pick RG3 or Newton. I think I screwed up

Naw newton is a huge question mark this year, just read he might have a cracked rib to go on top of his ankle issues.

No way man. I don't see Jackson and Harvin having outplaying one another (and that's if Harvin stays healthy) and you'd be giving away Jennings.

Any feedback on my draft?
12-team PPR, All TD 6 pts
I had the 6th pick.

QB - RG3
RB - Andre Ellington
RB - Rasad Jennings
WR - Demariyus Thomas
WR - Antonio Brown
TE - Julius Thomas
Flex - Torrey Smith

BN - Fred Jackson
BN - DeAngelo Williams
BN - Devonta Freeman
BN - Kelvin Benjamin
BN - Kenny Stills
BN - Tavon Austin


I made some mistakes in my draft, don't know why. Drinking too much and stopped concentrating. Took Stills way too early and was going to pick Matt Ryan instead of RG3, and didn't for some reason.

What do I need to improve? Starters? and/or Bench?

I really don't mind this team.
-Love the two top 3 players at their position (Both Thomases)
-As I mentioned earlier, I'm a huge Ellington fan, so great pickup. Arians went out of his way to tell Peter King that he felt Ellington could start on almost any team at WR, and they have him in the backfield.
-Jennings and RG3 are two red flags. Both have great potential...I heard a stat saying Jennings was a top 6 RB over the final 8 games last season. RG3 completely depends on whether or not his OL can keep him upright. He's already taken some shots this preseason, but he's also showing a willingness to slide, so hopefully he can stay healthy.
-I'm not a huuuuuge Antonio Brown guy, because (maybe unfairly) to me he's always seemed like a boom or bust guy each week. Maybe it's from the days where he shared targets from Wallace. but he'll be productive this season.
-LOVE Jackson and Benjamin on the bench.
-Freeman would be great in a dynasty league. I know you got him late, but you're really relying on injuries to S-Jax and Rodgers. Not that Rodgers is the handcuff to have, but he'll be getting some work, especially around the goalline.
-As far as improvements, not sure how you feel about carrying a backup QB. I'd consider it given the risk you're taking starting RG3 each week. Maybe drop Stills for a guy like (gulp) Locker or (GULP) Flacco. Both look great so far this preseason.
-Who's your DEF/ST?

I'll post my team too. I'm in a 14 team PPR draft, where I was (un?)lucky enough to have the #1 overall pick. It was a weird, weird draft that I had to change my entire strategy for after the first round. It's 6 points for TD passes as well, and you'll see why I'm mentioning this beforehand.

R1: Adrian Peterson
R2: Andrew Luck (Manning, Brees, Rodgers, Stafford, Newton, Brady, and Romo were already gone. Couldn't believe this)
R3: Brandon Marshall
R4: Greg Olsen (Graham, Thomas, Gronk were gone)
R5: Shane Vereen
R6: Terrance Williams
R7: Lamar Miller
R8: Browns D/ST (SEA, CAR, HOU, ARI, CIN, KC, SF, CAR, DEN, NE, STL were already gone. Again. Couldn't believe it)
R9: Riley Cooper
R10: Miles Austin
R11: Bernard Pierce
R12: Ronnie Hillman
R13: Joe Flacco
R14: Markus Wheaton
R15: Matt Bryant

My tentative week 1 lineup:
QB: Andrew Luck
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Shane Vereen
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Terrance Williams
TE: Greg Olsen
RB/WR FLEX: Bernard Pierce vs CIN or Riley Cooper vs JAX (can't decide)
D/ST: Cleveland
K: Matt Bryant
