    I just had my draft earlier today, ESPN snake draft. What do you think?
    [​IMG]

    ===== mod edit, since the image above is not showing =====

    10. QB Matthew Stafford
    11. WR Calvin Johnson
    30. WR Brandon Lloyd
    31. RB Adrian Peterson
    50. TE Aaron Hernandez
    51. RB Willis McGahee
    70. QB Matt Ryan
    71. WR Antonio Brown
    90. WR Torrey Smith
    91. RB Doug Martin
    110. RB Shane Vereen
    111. QB Robert Griffin III
    130. WR Randy Moss
    131. TE Owen Daniels
    150. D/ST Buffalo Bills
    151. K Dan Bailey

    =====================================



    I also proposed two trades,
    Receive Trent Richardson, Cle RB
    Receive Rob Gronkowski, NE TE
    Send Willis McGahee, Den RB
    Send Aaron Hernandez, NE TE
    Send Robert Griffin III, Wsh QB

    Receive Wes Welker, NE WR
    Send Matt Ryan, Atl QB from
    Send Torrey Smith, Bal WR

    are these good or should I reconsider?

    I like both trades, if the other team accepts.

    Trade Offer #1
    Gronk > Hernandez
    Richardson > McGahee
    You don't need RGIII since you already have Stafford

    Trade Offer #2
    Welker > Torrey Smith
    You don't need Ryan since you already have RGIII

    I would go so far as to say take them both if they are accepted. Since you are in a relatively small (ten team) league you should be able to pick up a backup QB off waivers at some point for when Stafford has a bye week.

    Thats a nice draft Avenger, quite a few of the same players i got in my draft!!

    Imo i think having Hernendez might be worth more than Gronk this year. Just pure guess work but i think Hernandez will be targeted a lot more this year due to Lloyd stretching the field and i have a suspicion that Gronk might have to do more blocking this year. Also Hernandez might get a few carries out of the backfield which will be worth a few points??

    More than likely im talking nonsense and you guys will be able to put me right!!

    Good, deep roster. I like your late picks a lot.

    Which AP did you scoop up at #31? or is he and Stafford switched?

    A Brown was huge for me last year. I'm hoping I can get him again this year.

    and who is this Doug Martin character? I've seen him mentioned a couple of times. Is he expected to do anything, or is he some guy that the "experts" are harping on only for them to never see the field (i.e. James Davis)

    Is that the Boise St RB? Either way, I'm not touching him. I'll take a TB WR just cuz they'll be losing each game. No RB though.

    Just curious, when did the other big QBs get drafted (Rogers, Brees, Brady)?

    I like the Hernandez, Brown and Martin picks.

    As for the Welker trade, is it in a PPR league? If so Welker is probably worth it. And what is the QB situation for the team you are trading to? You might not want to give them the missing QB piece that they need.

    Rodgers 4th, Brady 6th, Brees 9th, Newton 13th. The trade timed out anyways, I'll try making some moves closer to the season but I'm sitting tight right now.

    In a PPR league, I wouldn't be at all shocked to see Hernandez and Gronk have similar point production. Gronk is due to come back to earth a little with the focus teams will put on him.

    Also, sneaky good D/St pick with the Bills. They probably won't be amazing all year, but maybe will seal a few clutch games for you if they tee off and have a big day at the office.
