Fantasy Keeper…


 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?

    Team Bartolis (me!) has great running backs, but meh wide recievers.

    If you can come up with something fair both ways I’ll be interested (IE not my number one Running back for a number 3 WR or anything.
