I'll be doing a lot more blogging this season -- columns, random quotes, user emails, etc.
As an example, here are some user emails I got this weekend on their drafts. Feel free to comment on the results. Talk to you throughout the season right here.
I hope things are well and enjoy your Labor Day. I am working at the Fire Station all day, so hopefully it will be a little down time. Per your request, here is my Draft from this Saturday.
Our League is a 12 Team PPR (.5) and standard scoring: 6 TDs, etc
Also, our 8 Starters / 6 Reserves consist of: QB, RB, RB, WR, Flex#1(RB/WR/TE), Flex#2(WR/TE), DST, K
Rd. 1> Ryan Mathews - I had to go Mathews here…a gut feeling, because I know I would get Mendenhall, Benson or Greene
Rd. 2> Ryan Mendenhall - Workhorse….
Rd. 3> Brandon Marshall - I changed my thoughts and went WR when I saw him drop to me…I had to get some sort of Elite
Rd. 4> Phillip Rivers - I have had Rivers going on my 4th year…Solid!
Rd. 5> Pierre Garcon - Look who is throwing the ball to him
Rd. 6> Hakeem Hicks - Another WR that was just in front of me that many passed up on…it might be a nice pick up.
Rd. 7> Felix Jones - A good Flex and Bye week. PPR, etc.
Rd. 8> Darrin Sproles - The best time to handcuff Mathews, plus a really good back if Mathews does go down. I'm feeling good
Rd. 9> Tim Hightower - I like Hightower's play; Wells is hurt on/off and his PPR is solid. They play a good schedule for him
Rd. 10> Johnny Knox - Speed and the no. 1 WR on a "thrown" Offense.
Rd. 11> Vishanth Scanco - Farve loves the red zone with him and he was just sitting there on the snake.
Rd. 12> Chad Henne - I made a mistake here in getting a no.2 QB when I should of gotten a DST…this might hurt me.
Rd. 13> Arizona DST - Okay, I might have to play weekly DST's because of my previous pick's mistake. Thoughts here: They do play STL?.
Rd. 14> David Buelhar - Cowboys are going to score and/or be in the red zone for any points they can get…my sleeper. LOL.

Moss WAS available, but I decided to stick with my original plan. I still got Flacco in round 5 (12th QB taken!)
