I had the 3rd pick in my live in person fantasy draft tonight (first time ive ever done one of these in person).

I had the 3rd pick and the 1st 2 picks were

1. LT
2. Steven Jackson

And with the 3rd pick I skipped over LJ.

I don't really know if I should say who I picked because I will probably get rocked, but here it is...

Frank Gore.

Thoughts anybody?

Not a bad pick. I don't think LJ will put up as many FFL points as he did last year, but I don't think I would have skipped over him. Frank Gore will be good though.

Didnt he just get sidelined for like 6 weeks due to a broken hand or soemthing? Not trying to be a jerk, but I thought I heard that on the news.

If ESPN sucks off a guy ie like they have been with Gore, thou shall not take him.

No problem, I'm pretty sure he'll be in there week 1.

I think the number I heard was 6 weeks, which would exclude him from week 1. Does your site have an injury report?

Henderson and Furrey will probably be non-factors this year. Furrey because he won't see the ball; Henderson because I don't see him breaking out.

Well, I checked his injury report and at first he was going to play the last preseason game, but his first game wont be til week 1 vs. the cardinals.

Henderson and Furrey will probably be non-factors this year. Furrey because he won't see the ball enough. Henderson because I don't see him breaking out.

I think Furrey will have plenty of receptions this year and Devery henderson too...They both play in the NFC too, if that means anything.

Well, hopefully he is ready. It may have been the first couple weeks of Training Camp that it happened. I really can't remember. Good luck!

Who is Furrey taking balls away from? Roy or Calvin?

I think you made the right choice, the choice I would have made. I assume you are in a point per reception league.

Calvin Johnson isnt going to be that great this year.

Why the hell would they all of the sudden stop throwing to one of their best WRs from last year?

Furrey is going to be the Ricky Prohel or Az Hakim role for Detroit. I dont think I would have spent a fantasy spot on either one of them.

By the way, we ****ed up and thought we were only supposed to have 14 picks, but it was 15, so we each got a scrub, thats why I got PK Sam

Probably not a huge fantasy year, but he'll put up better numbers than Furrey and he will severley cut into Furrey's production.

Because they have two receivers on their roster better than him.

You got him starting though, start Chambers or Stallworth. It would be more worth your time IMO.

I haven't decided on the starting lineup yet.

Det plays Oak week 1 I believe, so I wont be starting Furrey.

Also, Shayne Graham, Neil Rackers, Jason Elam, Jason Hanson, and Gotskowski are available @ kicker, I dont know why the hell I chose Bryant, but he will be gone once those guys clear waivers.

Dang I would add Graham or Gotskowski, you know that Cincy and NE will put up points.

To be fair, I would need to see the order you drafted that team in, but stepping back, i kind of wish you were in one of my two leagues. Of course I could be wrong, but I think you're gonna struggle this year, mostly because you only look to have one solid starter in my eyes and that's Baltimore's D.

Kitna has been getting jerked off all preseason, but you know he'll turn the ball over just as much as he'll throw TD's (I'm assuming y ou'd start Kitna over Leinart, at least at first anyway). I don't like Gore that early in the first. I may have reached for Addai at 3, but not Gore. He has a track record of getting hurt and I'm not sold on San Fran's chances this year either. It looks like you were a good boy and followed your cheat sheets advice on that one, but I have to think the top 3 picks are locks this year unless you are in a league with some crazy scoring rules. The guy picking behind you probably ran over and gave you a big wet lickery kiss on the lips after that pick.

Your receivers don't look all that tough either, at least they don't scare me. I'd really like to see what your draft strategy going in was. Did you go RB-RB? RB-WR? RB-QB? A lot of what happens after round 3 is dictated by what's going on, but at least you should have some idea what you want in rounds 1 and 2 going in.

Of course having said all this, Gore will be league MVP, Kitna will lead the Lions to the playoffs and you'll win your league, so who knows.

If I remember correctly I drafted in this order

1. Gore
2. Jones-Drew
3. Leinart (believe it or not, he was the best available QB at this point)
4. Boldin
5. Baltimore D
6. Dallas Clark
7. Furrey
8. McGahee
9. Kitna
10. Chambers
11. Devery Henderson
12. Tatum Bell
13. Stallworth
14. Bryant

I'm surprised Kitna lasted till the 9th. He's rated pretty high everywhere I look and a lot of people are stroking his potential this year. I like McGahee in the 8th, I think Furrey, Leinart, and Clark are WAY too early, and I still don't like Gore so early, but other than that, meh you had an ok draft IMO.

Amazing that he would be left in the 8th with some of those other names ahead of him.

As for your move I'm looking at being in the same boat today when I host one of my leagues drafts in the gameroom.I've got the 4th pick and I'm really thinking LJ is going to fall to me but I just don't think I can pull the trigger.Hopefully,he'll be gone and I won't have to make that decision.

Funny, I have Kitna and Leinart, too, but I took them in reverse order.

I was fortunate enough to get the first pick (the first time in 12 years of playing FFootball). We have a 10-man league and start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, TE, K, D/ST. I think I did pretty well.

QB Kitna, Lienart
RB Tomlinson, Thomas Jones, Marshawn Lynch
WR Steve Smith, Terrell Owens, Vincent Jackson, Santonio Holmes
TE Alge Crumpler
K-
Defense-Chicago

We have three picks left. I'll take a kicker and probably Mike Bell and Michael Turner.

How did McGahee fall to the 8th round? Does he have an injury that I don't know about or has he dropped on the depth chart? I haven't really looked into it, but I was thinking McGahee would be pretty solid this year behind a better offensive line. Am I missing something?

It will make it all the more sweet when he rushes for 2200 yards and 32 TD's.

Thats what I want to know. I was sitting there and his named popped into my head and I was thinking "how the hell has nobody picked him yet."

I think I have a really strong RB core, and thats what I wanted to draft this year, plus I took the Ravens D earlier than I've ever taken a Def before, but they should get me some good points hopefully.

This is in a roto league by the way, I dont know why we're doing one of those, it will be my first time.
