Last night we held our FanSided NFL Keeper Draft. It is a brand new keeper league in which you will keep three players each year. The draft had 12 teams, 16 rounds, and was done in the “snake” format. I had the 1oth overall pick-not so good.
Here is how my draft played out:
Round 1 <10th pick>: Drew Brees (QB): Tom Brady, Mike Vick, and Aaron Rodgers all went before my pick.
Round 2 <15th pick>: Hakeem Nicks (WR): In our league format he will earn big points if he stays healthy.
Round 3 <34th pick>: Jahvid Best (RB): Yes he is my number one RB. It may be a reach, but he is clearly the LIONS number one back.
Round 4 <39th pick>: Wes Welker (WR): Some people are down on him. He is in year two since the ACL tear and he still has Tom Brady throwing him balls.
Round 5 <58th pick>: Marshawn Lynch (RB): There was a run on RB’s early in the draft. Enough said!
Round 6 <63rd pick>: Julio Jones (WR); The number two wide out inAtlanta. Should be good for 60-70 catches.
Round 7 <82nd pick>: Pierre Thomas (RB): See Round 5 comment.
Round 8 <87th pick>: Santana Moss (WR): For as weak as I am at RB, my WR’s are stacked in my eyes. Moss is gonna be a great slot WR for the ‘skins.
Round 9 <106th pick> Rob Gronkowski (TE): I think this is a steal at the TE position. Especially, with NE playing him as there fourth wide out.
Round 10 <111th pick> Mark Sanchez (QB): He is gonna start one game and one game only. Brees’s bye week.
Round 11 <130th pick> Hines Ward (WR): Did I mention that I think I’m stacked at WR?
Round 12 <135th pick> Bears (D &S/T): One word: Hester; I wanted the Jets but someone used a thrid round pick on them….
Round 13 <154th pick> Jerome Simpson (WR): He is number two wide out in Cincinatti. Did I mention I think I’m staked at WR?
Round 14 <159th pick> Dustin Keller (TE): I think this was a steal such late in the draft.
Round 15 <178th pick> Derrick Ward (RB): Did I mention by RB’s suck?
Round 16 <183rd pick> Stephen Gostkowski (K): Its a kicker…
Well that is my team…time to wheel and deal now! Thoughts?
