We start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 Receivers, 1 K, and 1 D. No TE required and you must draft two Ks and 2 Ds. 10 team league.

Pretty standard scoring except no points for receptions or Defensive return yards and QBs get 6 points for a touchdown.

1. LJ
2. Ocho Cinco
3. Cedrick Benson
4. Donovan McNabb

5-15 I don't remember the order
Santonio Holmes
Devery Henderson
Da Bears D
Ben Rothlisberger
Tatum Bell
Lamont Jordan
Randy Moss
Jerry Porter
Jeff Wilkens
Ryan Lindell
Da Bills D

Whadya think?

I got LJ with my 1st pick (4th in the draft). He was not my "top on the board pick". Rather, he was #3 on my list.

My starting lineup is:

QB Phillip Rivers
RB Larry Johnson
RB Adrian Peterson
WR Marvin Harrison
WR Larry Fitzgerald
WR Andre Johnson
TE Kellen Winslow

Do you play on a four team league? That looks pretty loaded.

10 team league.

Peterson is the only real gamble player but I wanted him so I bumped him higher up on my draft board and took hime in the 10th round.

Kicker is Robbie Gould (Bears)
Defense is Seattle

Backups of note are:

QB Jon Kitna
RB Duece McAllister

The other backups will be cut fodder for FA pickups (like I am hoping to pick up Matt Schaub)

Impressive. I think you'll have very little problem winning this league against your landscaping rocks.

Either....

1. You play in a league with only 6 or less teams
2. The people you play with are idiots or it's a public league with a bunch of 11 yr olds.
3. Or you're lying.

Yeah, I found it shocking that my draft went that way. I think the key was that I took a lot of players OUT of my draft order that I just didnt want.

yes, you're a homer



but that doesn't mean it won't work out .... depends on how good the rest of the offense is.

1. 10 person league
2. All adults (one 18 year old I believe). 1 person though is a bit slow as he is an Arizona Cardinal homer so he put all cardinal players as his priority.
3. No lie.

The majority of the people that are in the league were in it in previous years and have all played well. I jost got lucky on the draft.

My top 3 priority picks were Peyton Manning, LT, LJ. Manning and LT went #1 & #2. #3 pick ended up being Steven Jackson.

My draft results went as follows:
