View Full Version : Who did you just miss out on?

Any fantasy drafter can tell you stories about the guy who slipped all the way down......to the guy a spot or two before him. :flush:
So last night, who was the player or players you were crossing your fingers would drop but just missed out on? For me it was Marc Bulger. With a couple teams before me taking their backup QB in the early rounds, Bulger, Brady and Brooks were the best left. BM13 snatched Bulger, leaving me with a solid if unspectacular Tom Brady.
Anyone else have a story to share?

I could have had Harrison and Manning back to back at 12 and 13 in the RKA league...but I would have been hurting for a RB...so I took D. Davis at 13.
Hey, Don't knock Brady...I have him too!

I missed out on the chance to get an oustanding kicker.

I thought I could get Curtis Martin at the end of Round 5, but Bosco took him two spots from home.

believe it was round 5, I noticed that WR Steve Smith was still out there and tried working a trade out with pez(who was picking at the time) to move up a few spots and draft him.
Pez got Santana Moss, then Alec with the next pick(2 picks in front of me) takes Steve Smith.

I picked right after Alec and was targeting Moss and Smith... I really had to scramble at that point to settle on someone in two minutes... I thought for sure one of them would fall through..... ~Popps~

Definately, without question it was Marvin Harrison, in the MIDDLE of round 2.
First off, I had the 5th overall pick and had my target on Duece McCallister and was praying he got to me. Little did I know that A Green would slip to me. I scooped up Green and had a big smile on my face. Then, as the second round started, I notice Harrison was still aroound and thought for sure he would go within the first 3 or 4 picks in the second round. Well, as the picks got closer and closer to me, Harrison was still on the board. I was the 20th pick overall in the 2nd round. As luck would have it, Harrison got swept up right in front of me at 19. I thought for sure the guy in front of me would NOT take Harrison since he had taken Randy Moss in the first round. Certainly, he wouldn't pass over a RB after doing so in the first round. I was wrong.
I :settled" for Dominic Davis at that pick. I was still happy to land Davis but I would have loved the possibilities of A Green and Harrison.
