    Re: Planet Steelers Fantasy League?

    Just had my draft today for my other fantasy league with guys at work (my money league).

    Interestingly enough, I picked 3rd again, so I ended up with a few of the same players that I took in our league. This is a 12 team league with no IDP's. It is a non-PPR league with 6 points for all TD's. The rest of the scoring is pretty standard. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR flex, 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 D/ST.

    For the first time in our league's history, they instituted a "no-trading" rule, so the only way to improve your team after the draft is through the waiver wire. We had a longer draft that usual (17 rounds) to give teams adequate depth since we cannot trade at all if we suffer devastating injuries.

    Even with this extra depth, I still did not draft a backup QB, because I was not thrilled about the options available to me when I was picking. There was a sudden, massive run on back-up QB's while I had one of my 18 pick waits between picks (since I was 3rd), so there were no draft-worthy backup options left where I was comfortable drafting them. I'll have to grab someone off the waiver wire when Romo has his week 4 bye (right now, available free agent QB's are Campbell, Sanchez, Hasselbeck, Freeman, Moore, Bradford, Delhomme, and Edwards).

    Other than that, I think I got good depth. I really wanted to take Mike Wallace, and I thought I might be able to take him in the 6th or 7th round, which is why I took Ocho in the 5th instead of Hines (didn't want Hines and Wallace on the same fantasy team). However, I didn't take into account that there is a new guy in the league this year that is a Steeler fan (for years I was the only one), and he snatched up Wallace before Ward, so even though I missed out on Wallace at least I got Hines at good value, I think. I really wanted to get LDT to handcuff Shonn Greene, but he was snatched up one pick before me when I was ready to take him in the mid-rounds. Oh well. Here is my team (with the round I took each player noted):

    QB:

    4. Tony Romo

    RB:

    1. Maurice Jones-Drew
    2. Shonn Greene
    6. Justin Forsett
    9. Reggie Bush
    10. Darren Sproles
    11. Leon Washington

    WR:

    3. Larry Fitzgerald
    5. Chad Ochocinco
    7. Hines Ward
    12. Lee Evans
    13. Laurent Robinson
    14. Jacoby Jones

    TE:

    8. Owen Daniels
    15. Jeremy Shockey

    K:

    17. Jay Feely

    D/ST:

    16. Cincinnati

    How do you folks think I did?

    Hard to argue with that team Ruthless.

    Given that our league has 2 more teams, the talent is more spread in ours. But they are comparable in strength, when you take that into consideration.

    Like in our league, Chadman expects your team will be very competitive.

    Shame you'll finish no higher than 2nd in our league though...
