I use a method of value over replacement player that has worked for me. With this roster make up there is a higher premium on QB’s and WR’s. Where in many leagues with only 1 QB and 2 WR the value of RB’s is high. This makes them fill most of round one and two picks. Using my value over replacement method you now have to go much farther down the list to get your replacement values for QB and WR. This greatly increases the difference in the top QB’s and WR’s verses their replacements. Anyone drafting from a magazine list may be at a great disadvantage. When playing in any league format matters in building your draft strategy.
I picked 10th out of 10 teams.
Pick 10 QB Cam Newton, CAR – I like Cam as a high point man from the QB position, with hopes that he has just enough experience this year to break out.
Pick 11 WR A.J. Green, CIN – Green stand far and above all WR not named Clavin Johnson
Pick 30 RB Maurice Jones-Drew, JAX – Look for a bounce back year from MJD
Pick 31 QB Andrew Luck, IND – I expect growth from an already fine QB
Pick 50 RB DeMarco Murray, DAL – RB are slim here
Pick 51 WR Michael Crabtree, SF – Showed signs of his first round talent last year, I expect him to show more this year.
Pick 70 TE Vernon Davis, SF – Okay this may be a stretch for Vernon, he was my favorite TE still out there and wanted to secure him
Pick 71 WR Torrey Smith, BAL – Due to lack of RB I want for more depth at WR Smith is a good wild card here
Pick 90 RB Jonathan Stewart, CAR – I needed RB’s with next too picks
Pick 91 RB Vick Ballard, IND
Pick 110 TE Greg Olsen, CAR
Pick 111 QB Jake Locker, TEN – I think I should have found a better back up earlier with Newton’s plauying style.
Pick 130 TE Jared Cook, STL
Pick 131 WR Denarius Moore, OAK – Looked for a lottery ticket with this pick
Pick 150 K Justin Tucker, BAL – K and Defense last. As always there is not a great point difference with these positions. WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!
Pick 151 DEF Detroit Lions, DET
All tolled my numbers show Mike Gottlieb @SportsByGotti having the best starting line up. There are then several of us close for second but my numbers have my team as second for starting line up. I also show my team as having the best total points. Neither of these can be sure to show the best team at years end. Picking line ups and match ups is huge.
