I had my high dollar CBS draft yesterday. I was very pleased with the results and will post them on another thread.
I got stuck in the ten hole today, so I decided to try something different this time around. I attempted the rarely seen (because its so stupid) strategy of leading off with two wideouts.
Here are the gory details:
1-10 - Randy Moss
WR - Eeeewwww!
2-15 - Torry Holt
WR - Torry Holt will destroy the world this season.
3-34 - Warrick Dunn
RB - I was hoping Tatum or the perennially underrated CuMart would slide to this spot. The queasy stomach and the feelings of, "Oh my God, what the hell have you done" begin.
4-39 - JJ Arrington
RB - Oooh, doesn't that
starting RB tandem just strike fear into you!
5-58 - Ashley Lelie
WR - Homer pick completes my WR Axis of Evil.
6-63 - Ricky Williams
RB - Fitting that it was shortly after 4:20 when I made this selection.
7-82 - Drew Brees
QB - Missed on my boy Jake Delhomme, so I settled for the Mole Man.
8-87 - Reuben Droughns
RB - Still looking to shore up the fugly RB corps. He's starting for the moment. I need him to hold the job for about five weeks.
9-106 - Patriots
D - Just missed the Panthers and Bills, but can't complain about getting the Champs.
10-111 - LJ Smith
TE - Should break out this year with Chad Lewis gone.
11-130 - Brandon Stokley
WR - 68 receptions, 1077 yards, 10 TDs last season. Not too bad for round 11.
12-135 - Mewelde Moore
: Mewelde might be the best back on the Vikings roster. Mewelde is a cool name.
This is the only picture I could find of Mike Tice where he's not actually picking his nose.
13-154 - Kurt Warner
QB - Sensing that I have totally screwed the fantasy pooch, I now call upon divine intervention. God roots for Kurt Warner, ipso facto, God is now rooting for the Yah Mules. Bow down, pagans.
14-159 - Ryan Longwell
K - Good luck charm kicker. Longwell has handled the kicking chores for 80% of the Mule Teams over the last decade. People freak out over the frozen tundra nonsense and assume he'll be in a blizzard during the FFL playoffs every year.
15-178 - Rod Gardner
WR - Carolina has two good wideouts in Smith and Colbert, but they're both small. Gardner has good size. Hopefully he'll flourish in a professional environment.
16-183 - Chris Cooley
TE - H-back scored six TDs last year.
17-202 - Brandon Jacobs
RB - Talk of Giants camp. I hope to see him as a goalline back. Definitely not
putting the whammy on Tiki, who I respect immensely, but this kid is good enough to start and produce right now.
To quote Charles Barkley, "Bad team, man, bad ****ing team."
I can't say I recommend starting your draft with two WR, but I do expect Moss and Holt to out perform everyone else this year. I especially like that Holt's week 16 matchup is San Francisco at home.
I was really hoping that Jordan, Martin or Bell would slide to me at 3-34. God bless Warrick Dunn, but good lord, that's a number three back, not a number one back. Maybe JJ Arrington will catch lightning in a bottle right away. His coach loves him and he's in a division chock full of crummy defenses.
Buffalo soldier troddin’ through the land, wo-ho-ooh!
Said he wanna ran, then you wanna hand,
Troddin’ through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea.
Come home, Ricky, all is forgiven.
