Apes - 6 RBs
[/quote]
... and only 2 WRs. Oops. Just seemed like every time my turn came around, there was a more attractive option. By the end, I decided to take a second K and D for a better chance of points than the WRs that were left.

In all, I give myself a B- for the draft. I chose to focus on Niners and ended up with Garapalo, Mostert, Coleman, Kittle and Gould. That's not bad if they make it to the Super Bowl. On the other hand, I ended up with 6 Eagles, which feels crazy. A lot of my success might depend on whether Philly can beat Seattle this weekend.

I had a few picks with solid value and a couple of mistakes. A. Jones at RB 17 and M. Sanders at RB 23 may end up as great bargains or busts. Passing on E. Sanders for Wentz in the 7th at 2 am on New Year's Day may not have been the best move. And reaching for Ertz in the 12th when I should've taken Homer to pair him with Lynch was crazy. Maybe Ertz plays, but I could've had him in the 14th.

I was surprised to see how little faith we all have in Green Bay. I think they'll lose to NO, too, but it will hardly be a shock if they win considering the bye and home field. Jones at RB 17 and Rodgers at QB 18 and 19 stand out as possible league winners if they don't end up one and done.

Prioritizing each pick was agonizing. Even if you knew who was going to the Superbowl, I don't think it would have mattered.

The Wedding was spectacular. Thanks for all the patience.

I might be the only one with 3 Green Bay players with Jones, Graham and Crosby, so I hope they can win a couple.

Picking at 12 in a regular redraft I love
Picking there in this league sucks.
I had 3 QB’s targeted in the 1st ...none of them made it too me

My thought process:

Round 1. Get a great player from a team that makes the SB or at least the conference championship. Tyreek, come on down.
Round 2. See round 1. Ingram, come on down.
Round 3. Half the league has their 2-3 game QB. I better get the next best thing. (Russell)
Round 4. I need another Raven. Hello Mr. Andrews.
Round 5. What if Russell loses early? Come on aboard DeShaun.
Round 6. Better get a RB that's playing this week. Hell, he might even still be playing next week. (Singletary)
Round 7. Better get a WR that's playing this week. Hello Mr. Beasley. Wait, John Brown was available?
Round 8. I just need a WR. Mr. Lazard will work. Wait, John Brown was still available?
Round 9. Better get another WR that's not playing this week. Hi Sammy.
Round 10. I need another Raven. Even if it's just a kicker.
Round 11. One more Raven can't hurt.
Round 12. I need another RB to start this week. 10ball took him 2 rounds ago. Must be a steal.
Round 13. Time for a D. Bills it is. Then I'll grab the Texans so I'm guaranteed 2 weeks of points.
Round 14. Wait, I only have 1 WR for this week. Sigh, what's your frequency Kenny?
Round 15. There's only 2 picks left and I don't have a starter at TE for this week. 'Sup Kyle?
Round 16. There's only 1pick left and I don't have a kicker for this week or a flex. That's how good I am. No kicker it is.

So as you can see, if I had a strategy it went awry quite early. Expectations are low.

As a fan of kickers, gotta ask, why no kicker? :shock:

Based upon my algorithm, the regression coefficient tells you that if the Saints are among the two likely NFC Super Bowl contenders, a positive predictor exists and that my man Wil Lutz projects out to 2.69 games, giving him 26.3 fantasy points. This places him at an estimated 34th overall, AHEAD of the likes of Sony Michel, Stefon Diggs, TE super star Dallas Goedert AND the Ravens D.

Kickers matter! :lol:

I have a kicker. Just not for this week. If I get 3 games from Tucker that'll be a win.

Down 5.

No kicker.

Tannehill is my only QB. Go Tennessee! Wait no. Too many Ravens. Dammit. I'm not winning this.

2 Ds and TEs, though. :/

A brutal weekend. The fantasy world has been turned upside down!

A cursory look would suggest that The Outlaws or darksideofoz now move into the driver seat based upon remaining players. Assuming we don't have more upsets and Baltimore and San Francisco make it to the Super Bowl.
