It's been five years since I last won this thing, so I figure I'm due. 8) I love my draft slot. Seems like a big difference this year between top 6 and bottom 6.

5 of the 8 site championships are represented in the league this year!

These are the two guys I thank for my site championships. Just look at those stats!

2003 Priest Holmes: 2,110 total yards, 74 receptions, 27 TDs
2006 Ladainian Tomlinson: 2,323 total yards, 56 receptions, 31 TDs

Feels good to remain in GW! Now the objective is to win it!

To bad there isn't trading as I'd be interested in trading out of #2. I never draft up this high, so I'll have to figure this out. I prefer where I was last year (#12).

Good luck to all, but not too much!!! That is, except for Salukis!!!

Made it up here again. I have been one and done too many times in this league. Time for me to stick around for a while. :popcorn:

Where's the link to your league so we can follow along with your draft?

Ray Rice is high on a lot of the Tiger Shark League Draft picks. Vick was drafted in only about 5% of leagues so far (we're still in the first 5 picks).

Thanks, Pat. Are you surfing through to see the picks? I'm seeing a lot more Ray Rice than expected. CJ is absent more than expected. (No pun intended)

Breaking news.. Ray Rice goes 1st overall in the GWS league.

I've got a choice of CJ or Rice at 4th and 11 hours to decide ;-P :-k :?: Maybe CJ will report to camp today?

I had Rice at the top of my GWS list too. He's solid in a PPR league. I'm happy to have McCoy at #4 (my vote for best pass-catching RB this year) but I was hoping that Rice would fall based on his ADP.

You have to throw ADP out the window in Shark Leagues because everyone knows "everything" (meaning the conventional wisdom, including ADP). You're not going to win these leagues by drafting according to general knowledge. You have to make some bold picks here and there and I admire anyone with the balls to take Ray Rice #1.

Curious? As a Ravens fan I am deeply concerned about the O-line of Baltimore. Yes it is early but with a aged Center who is currently out due to surgery and Tackles that look horrible so far, what are you guys expecting? I worry that the Ravens offense will sputter on drives due to poor blocking on pass plays. Are you expecting things appear worse than reality? Probably so but was wondering your thoughts.

Don't get me wrong I totally respect guys like Phyrre56 and Ratslinger's opinions. Having played against many of the competitors in this league and losing miserably....

Thank you, Ratslinger for taking ARod!!! I would have had to take him and I typically stay away from Packers. He may be the steal of the draft...

With him gone, I had to REEEEEach and look at the potential in Ingram. Pretty bad, reaching in the 2nd round. I know, this was early, but he wouldn't be there in the 4th and I think he will be top 12 RB, so...

I debated for a while between Rodgers and Hillis in the 2nd round. In the end I'm glad I went Hillis, even though I'm not a big believer, just because my backup plan if I took Rodgers was to get Ahmad Bradshaw after the turn. He didn't make it, so I dodged a bullet in that regard.

My other plan was Hillis and then come around for Greg Jennings. That worked! :)

Ingram was a pretty big reach but who knows? If he gets the bulk of the work, he'll be Top 20 easily.
