Yeah, the RB spot is where I’m nervous, too. I figure RJ should be at least decent, and I picked up McGahee and Dayne in the 10th and 12th round (they seemed like steals, and I had the Lager courage perhaps). Alstott got picked up in the 15th (I figure I can steal a few goalline TD points from him. I don’t think I’ll be getting fat off of his yardage or carries).
I don’t have my list in front of me, but I think my order was something like Moss, Gonzalez, Vick, Johnson, Smith, Robinson, Brooks, Pollard, Gardner, McGahee, Feely, Dayne, Carolina, Booker, Alstott, Tennesee, and Hanson. Draft went 1–>10, then 10–>1, then 1–>10, etc.
Trading should be easy, especially after the first game. Half of the guys in the league get itchy to trade after the first quarter of the 1:00 game every week. The “propose trade” button is like crack to them. Fortunately, our drop/add period for the week is limited to from 8AM Tuesday, to 12 hours before the first game of the week. (Commish disallows any action outside of that window, unless it’s to cover a last minute injury. Last year, we had a leech pick up Anquan Boldin DURING his first big game, which drew wrath from about 8 other teams, hence the drop/add period). I think our roster freezes around week 12, to prevent roster dumps among the teams who don’t make our playoffs.
Thanks for the input, fellas. Hal, any word on your pool? Have I been missing e-mails? I got $35 burning a hole in my pocket, dude.
