I litterly just got back from my draft which IMO I think went well. This is a deep 10 man PPR 2 player keeper league with TE's getting 2 PPR and everyone else getting 1 PPR, TD's are all worth 6pts. 5 QB's were kept, 7 RB's, 6 WR's and 2 TE's. We start 1 QB, 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 WR or TE, 1 k, and 1 DEF. I kept Maurice Jones-Drew and Calvin Johnson and had the last pick in a snake draft, since I won again last year to give me back to back championship wins. I think all in all everyone drafted decent except 2 teams with 1 being really really bad, but its all guys I work with and some just arent that very knowledgeable in the fantasy world.
Ok, so in the first round alot of RB's went and I was trying to get some top WR's, and was licking my chops when I seen all of them dropping to me. But right before my pick the guy selected Brandon Marshall who I was eyeing, and this guy did this to me all draft, well 5 times to be exact, where he selected the guy I was eyeing right before me.
Remember it is a keeper league so it's like we are starting the draft in the 3rd round.
Keepers: MJD and Calvin Johnson
Round 1: DeSean Jackson ( stud if he can stay healthy)
Round 2: Greg Jennings ( think he is in line for a bounce back year)
Round 3: Matt Forte ( guy in front of me took Joseph Addai)
Round 4: Matt Schaub ( cant believe he fell this far)
Round 5: Jahvid Best ( guy in front of me took Ronnie Brown)
Round 6: Jonathan Stewart (didnt want him but at that value I felt obligated)
Round 7: Tony Gonzalez ( Ahmad Bradshaw went in front of him, great value for him and there were some surprising names that went in front of him, Visanthe Shiancoe? really!)
Round 8: Cadillac Williams ( should have taken LaDainian Tomlinson here, he went a few picks latter, but Caddy's a no.1)
Round 9: Jay Cutler ( also fell alot and alot of teams were starting to take there 2nd QB, Eli Manning and Chad Henne? went right before me, plus he will be a good replacment should anything happen to Schaub)
Round 10: Steve Slaton ( IMO good vaue for him because you never know what the situation is going to be with the Texans)
Round 11: Lee Evans ( im a Bills fan but he is a no.1 and Santanio Holmes went right in front of him)
Round 12: Mike Williams (Buccaneers) ( hoping he breaks out to be a good sleeper pick, worth a chance since im not planning on starting him over any of my other WR's)
Round 13: Chargers ( last 1 to select a def. I waited since the top ones were going stupid early round 5 was when the 1st went Jets)
Round 14: Stephen Gostkowski ( needed 1 of these and he plays for the Patriots)
How do you think I did in my draft? Appreciate any feedback on my draft, Thanks.

I just held my draft for a 10 team PPR keeper league. You keep two players from the previous year, get 1 PPR, with the exception of TE's who ger 2 PPR. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE/WR, K, DEF. The season is 13 weeks with the playoffs being weeks 14 and 15, the division winners and then the next 2 teams with the best records make the playoffs.
Thanks and I will grade your team also if you want to post it.

Who does everyone think should be the first TE takin in drafts this year? There is really just 4 names in mind when it comes to me, Gates, Witten, Clark and Gonzo. How do you rank them in order of who will have the best fantasy year?

I am in a 2 player keeper league which gives one point per reception, with tight ends getting two ppr. You start 1 qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, one flex wr/te, k, and def. This is a ten person league, and I have the last pick in the first round and first in the second, since I won the championship last year. The potential keepers on my roster from last year are:
Maurice Jones Drew
Any thoughts would be very helpful as you can see I am stuck on which 2 to keep. My thoughts are to not keep either qb, and not keep Calvin Johnson. So its either 2 rb's or a rb with a wr, and I think the wr position is going to be slim this year, which is why im leaning towards Andre Johnson. But the fact that the 3 rb's I have are every down beasts for there repective teams it is a hard decision since which ever one/ones I let loose I will not see again. Thanks again and if anyone has any questions of there own, post them and I will try and provide some insight.
