    :icon_eek: were you blind when you picked your people. I mean no offense matilack your team has either a 50 percent of doing above average and a 50 percent of total failure with injuries. I mean Steve Jackson just signed a big fat extension i wouldn't be suprised if he's injured by week 3, and donovan is unpredictable. Galloway is old. Shockey MIGHT have a great season. And MJD won't get much time with fred taylor. Only reasonable player is roy williams and micheal turner. Sorry to be so harsh but eehhhh

    ...I used to play fantasy football for years and did very well at it. I finally got tired of pulling for players on teams that I hated, just because they were on my team, so I quit. To be honest with you, I've never seen a league that gave you the option of RB/WR? I have seen the WR or TE option. I love your Michael Turner pick. He's going to be huge in my guesstimation :tup:

    Not sure how important defenses are in your league, so I'll hold judgement on your Turd pick for D. :lol: I think Minnesota will be big on defense. They were already stout up front, added Jared Allen and face divison foes with rookie or very inexperienced QBs. New Orleans is also vastly improved on Defense.

    Maybe but the year before he won me a championship with a huge game that week and he was healthy all season. You never know who is going to get dinged up asside from those that always are.

    And look whose talking...you have Todd Heap( always hurt) and Peterson who hasnt played a full season since he was a freshman at Oklahoma. Javon bad knees Walker?

    Sorrry i dont see your team being any more durable.

    I'll tell you first that I was drafting 8th in a 14 team league, its a lot harder to get the cream of the crop.

    Steven Jackson..... I took because of Al Saunders who is well known for giving his RB's 400+ carries a year. And Jackson broke 2000 total yards a couple years ago, very solid pick at 8.
    McNabb.......I got some groans for this one, but Rivers was taken just before me and QB's were going fast.
    Shockey.......Drew Brees LOVES his TE's, he made a household name out of Antonio Gates, this was one of my best picks.
    Galloway.......was old last year too, and still put up 1000yds and 6 TD's, same with the 2yrs before that.
    Jones-Drew......Now Fred Taylor is old, and in trouble, MJD will be getting the bulk of the carries this year behind that strong O-line.


    Dont know if you've ever done a 14 team offline draft before, but its wild, and everyone is stealing everyone's picks, and Rivers was snatched right out from under me by the guy sitting at my tabel.

    I'm betting your league was 10 teams, because your roster would be unfathomable in our 14 team league.

    I've never played a fantasy league, this is my first year. I ended up with the first pick in a 10 man league. I thought that was great because I'd get LT, but man it's a LONG time between picks! Anyways, here's my team, please let me know what you guys think!

    QB- Philip Rivers
    RB- LT
    RB- Marshawn Lynch
    RB/WR- Donald Driver
    WR- TJ Houshmandzadeh (championship!)
    WR- Wes Welker (killed me picking this)
    TE- Kellen Winslow
    D/ST- Bolts
    K- Mason Crosby

    Bench
    Derek Anderson- QB
    Vernon Davis- TE
    Muhsin Muhammad- WR
    Dustin Keller- TE
    Titans D/ST
    Reggie Brown- WR
    Chris Perry- RB

    I see an obvious weakness at the Chargers bye. I planned on starting Derek Anderson, but I'm going to wait until after week 1 and see how he's doing after that concussion.

    I'm wowed that you got LT and Lynch on the same team.
    Because you were probably drafting 1st, and had to wait for 20+ picks to go by and Lynch was still on the board.

    Yeah, I'm playing with a bunch of guys that obviously know less than they say they do. Westbrook dropped 9th, which blew me away too. When Lynch was still on the board and it was time for my second pick I just started laughing at all of them. Larry Johnson got picked up before ML. :lol:

    So did Moss, Romo, Owens. Thing is, we're not doing PPR either. This may be my first fantasy team, but at least I did my research beforehand.

    Wow this is crazy good. I also have D Anderson, D Driver, and M Lynch, but Lynch was my 1st pick I think. U got him AND LT? Hope Ur playin for money.

    One lil' thing though, why 3 TE's? Piss someone off with the next best QB or sleeper WR/ RB like C Taylor of Minn or C Johnson of Tenn. Either way you're gonna get a lotta trade offers soon.
