My RotoBowl Team

Saturday was my first foray in RotoBowl and it didn’t quite go as planned.

Here’s a look at my draft and what I was thinking on each pick.

Round 1

Frank Gore: I had the fifth pick. It came down to the upside of Gore or the safety of Marion Barber. I chose the upside with Gore in perhaps the best offensive scheme in the NFL where the backs put up huge numbers.

Tom Brady: Those footballinjuries.com subscribers who have followed my drafting habits over the years know that I rarely take a QB before the fifth round. This pick came down to Marques Colston or Brady. I knew neither play would be there for me in the next round. I had targeted Braylon Edwards who went right before me. I just couldn’t get around what Brady did last year. But I also looked ahead, as I always do, to see who might be there for me with the next pick.

I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later.

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
