        Thats a pretty decent team.

        You have 3 very good receivers to start (1 as the flex).

        Miller is injured for at least the first month of the season. JT is a risky, but high upside pick.

        The problem you have is at RB. Not sure who will start with Foster. Moreno is probably the best option but I think Ball and Hillman will steal some of his carries.

        I would look into a trade or FA for another starting back.

          Pretty good team. I have RG3 as well.

          I like T Rich (who I also have) and Spiller. Wilson is a good flex option.

          JT is a sleeper with high upside, although there will probably be some rough weeks with him.

          Not sure about the Bucs D. I would probably go to FA every week and just play the match-ups (maybe whoever is playing Oakland lol)

          The interesting position is receiver. I think you could make a case for any of those 4 starting.

          Bowe probably starts and is solid but Alex Smith has not looked downfield this pre-season and IMO is very limited.

          Nelson is a decent option, although Cobb probably takes most of the attention.

          Shorts will be the Jags #1 with Blackmon out and had a good season last year.

          Jeffrey will play opposite Marshall and has looked really good this pre-season.

                    Oh man, I didn't even realize Miller was injured. Might have to pick up a different TE. I'm not to worried about RB right now, I picked up Foster as my first pick then didnt pick my next one until the 9th round, there always seems to be a back no one expects that comes out of nowhere that I will hopefully be able to pick up later on down the road.

                        Some basic advice.

                        Make your first 2 picks RB's. There's a hug drop-off after the first 10-12 and thats where your points come from.

                        Leave QB until round 4-5. Chances are RG3, Luck, Newton, etc...... will still be there.

                        In round 3 take Jimmy Graham if he's there or the top WR remaining, should be a very good one still there.

                        In round 5-6 you will still get a very good #2 receiver.

                        Don't draft a D or a kicker until round 7-8, if at all.

                          • Personal thoughts -

                            QB -

                            Cutler and Weeden are way too high. Neither are starting QB's in FF. Wilson should be above Bradford and Flacco. Baltimore's passing attack looks really thin.

                            RB -

                            I would move Doug Martin up a few places. You have left out Marshawn Lynch who should be number 2 or 3 on that list.

                            WR / TE -

                            CJ should be number one. DT should be in that list somewhere. I like Tavon Austin and DeAndre Hopkins, but neither are top 15 fantasy receivers at this point.

                              • My money league draft went super well. We don't allow keepers if you drafted them rounds 1-3, so I ended up with Kaep and Spiller as keepers. I also won the losers bracket last year so I got the 1st pick. 12 team, ppr.



                                I let some good TEs and D's get away, but overall I'm stoked and already thinking of ways to spend my grand. D's go earlier in this league than most, we score them rather high. Celek is a safe play but Cameron is a major sleeper imo. I always draft Tebow with my last pick for the lols, so after the draft I dropped him to sit on Percy

                                My second draft was ok, I had the 3rd or 4th pick in this one, Icr.
