I have 2 more fantasy drafts this week leading up to the start of the season on Thursday. I completed my 2nd one on Saturday after the Penn State vs Temple debacle. Penn State just did not look good, they are going to get trounced by the good teams in the Big Ten. Oh well, always next year? (Right Cubs fans!)
This draft was interesting because it was an auction format. No Keepers.
200 Dollar Budget start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, Flex, TE, K, DEF
It was tough figuring out how to fill the roster to make it competitive. I had literally no plan going into it but I ended up with I think a decent team.
In no particular order here is my roster
QB Andrew Luck ($44)
RB Jeremy Hill ($49)
RB TJ Yeldon ($9)
WR AJ Green ($42)
WR Jordan Mathews ($31)
WR Davante Adams ($11)
Flex Michael Crabtree ($1)
TE Dwayne Allen ($3)
K Matt Bryant ($1)
DEF Eagles ($1)
My bench was one 2 dollar player Kyle Rudolph
a few backup RB's Matt Jones, Cameron Artis-payne, Ronnie Hillman and Karlos Williams
a few backup WR's Philip Dorsett, and Kenny Britt
I already made a trade pre season. I was offered Matt Forte straight up for Jordan Mathews. I decided to accept. Mathews might be good but I was worried about my RB2. I think with AJ Green being my receiving anchor I'll still be in good shape. I don't love Crabtree starting but maybe he'll get some targets playing opposite Amari Cooper.
Hope everyone's draft is going well... only a few more days til you find out!
Thanks for reading!
