Just had a few drafts on NFL.com, just curious on what the board thinks of how I drafted.
Last year was my first year playing FF, won the championship in 3 leagues.

Team 1:
Aaron Rodgers
Matt Forte
Willis McGahee
Jordy Nelson
Mike Wallace
Jermichael Finley
Eric Decker
Ben Roethlisberger
Rashard Mendenhall
Ben Tate
Sidney Rice
Brandon Pettigrew
Jason Hanson
NY Giants
Denver Broncos.

Me personal I'd grade this team as a C.

Team 2:
Peyton Manning
Willis McGahee
DeMarco Murray
Calvin Johnson
Hakeem Nicks
Antonio Gates
Eric Decker
Jay Cutler
DeAngelo Williams
David Wilson
Super Mario Manningham
Jermichael Finley
Matt Prater
GB Packers
Denver Broncos

I grade it a B. My RB's are average

Team 3:
Aaron Rodgers
Matt Forte
Willis McGahee
Greg Jennings
Demaryius Thomas
Brandon Pettigrew
Jordy Nelson
Jason Hanson
Texans
Eli Manning
Cedric Benson
Ben Tate
Eric Decker
Jacob Tamme
Broncos

Not too sure about this one, but I like it. C+

Thoughts on my teams?

Your first draft B+ or A- depending on your K & DEFs
Your 2nd draft C or lower, you have a lot of ?
Your 3rd draft C, if I were you I'd try and trade for another RB

You did good with Rodgers and Forte, and maybe McGahee could be a good option. If your league has the FLEX for RB/WR, I would question why you didn't use that on another back. They get you more points than WRs.

I'll grade this one a B. The FLEX is my only concern. You did good everywhere else.


Team 2:
Peyton Manning
Willis McGahee
DeMarco Murray
Calvin Johnson
Hakeem Nicks
Antonio Gates
Eric Decker
Jay Cutler
DeAngelo Williams
David Wilson
Super Mario Manningham
Jermichael Finley
Matt Prater

I disagree. Murray's gonna be a good back. He showed it last year, and is now the Cowboys starter. McGahee will still get you points. I recommend you start Williams at FLEX. You have great WRs too. Manning may be a risk, but I'm sure you got him in a reasonable round.

My Grade is an A-.


Team 3:
Aaron Rodgers
Matt Forte
Willis McGahee
Greg Jennings
Demaryius Thomas
Brandon Pettigrew
Jordy Nelson
Jason Hanson
Texans
Eli Manning
Cedric Benson
Ben Tate
Eric Decker
Jacob Tamme
Broncos

Benson could be decent depth, but I'm concerned since it took a while for someone to sign him. I'm not too crazy on Tate since he isn't a starting back. Your receivers are good, but not as good as team 2. I recommend you trade Eli for another running back. I'd trade for Manning if my teams' QB went down.

I'll give this team a C.

I like your teams a lot at QB & WR, but I don't like your RB Depth. I'm high on Forte and I think Mcgahee could be primed for a big year too if the offense is firing on all cylinders, but don't like a lot of the RBS after that.

I'd stay away from Carolina RBs this year with the addition of Tolbert on an already 2 RB committee team. Ben Tate is a decent backup, but if Forte or Mcgahee go down you could be in serious trouble. Usually in FF I try to draft 4 RBS that are legit starters and aren't splitting carries. I'm big on RBs though in fantasy football, and I usually don't take a QB in the first round which you probably did with Rodgers.

Thanks for the feed back, I drafted the same way I drafted in last years FF. I won 3 championships, so I kept the same drafting. Virtually each team looks a lot like my teams last season.

Did just do another draft/league, here is the new team.

Team 4:
Peyton Manning
Jamaal Charles
Frank Gore
Calvin Johnson
Larry Fitzgerald
Jacob Tamme
Doug Martin
Jay Cutler
Willis McGahee
Eric Decker
Super Mario Manningham
Jermaine Gresham
Matt Prater
Pitt Steelers
Den Broncos

Who and the hell are you drafting against a bunch of turds? No way should you get Rodgers and Forte in two rounds.

Same thing with Charles and Calvin. Damn I need to play in your leagues...

Lol, I actually drafted Calvin at number 8, I picked 3rd in the second round drafted Larry. I drafted Charles in the 3rd, Frank in the 4th, Peyton in the 5th. You can pretty much guess how low the others was drafted.

I end up in leagues where people are drafting based on their favorite team(s) and what ESPN/NFL tell them.

In one of the leagues above, Matt Ryan was taken in the 1st round. He easier could have been on the board in the 3rd or late 2nd.

So guess what? I joined another league!!!
This time since I'm tired, I did the draft a min ago. Didn't really care for it after one of my picks got taken, so my gameplan went right to the whole. After that I just drafted random people. So this isn't a serious team of mine, just a tired, random draft.

Ben Roethlisberger
Ray Rice
Peyton Hillis
Hakeem Nicks
Brandon Marshall
Vernon Davis
Demaryius Thomas
Packers
Prater
Aaron Hernandez
Michael Bush
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Alshon Jeffery
Broncos
Brandon Jacobs
Ronnie Hillman

I'm not even gonna grade it.
