Just got back from the Rotobowl draft, and I’m getting ready to go to the big party at the House of Blues in AC, NJ. I’m pretty excited about the team I was able to draft, so while it probably won’t help anyone, I wanted to review my 20 picks. I picked 6th, with a 3rd round reversal in the draft (didn’t affect me). PPR league and you can start 2 Flex guys, so you can in theory go with 1 QB, 4 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT.
Larry Johnson – He fell to 6th and I snapped him up without hesitation.
Chad Johnson – Best player available, didn’t love any of the RBs.
Clinton Portis – First time I took him all year, felt he was a solid value.
Roy Williams – I decided here to dominate the WR spot.
Jerious Norwood – Little bit of a reach, but I was feeling frisy, upside guy and I want them in this league.
Joey Galloway – Damn good pick in a PPR league, I think.
Bernard Berrian – I can go 4 WR, and he’d be my 4th, which is sick.
Jon Kitna – My plan was to hold off on QB and TE, and in the 8th round I was ready to give into a QB, plus I have the hookup with Williams.
Leon Washinton – Needed a RB for my 4th, and he has some upside and should be very reliable.
Bobby Wade - Probably could have gotten him 1-2 rounds later or more, but when you like a guy and he’s your best player available, take him.
Owen Daniels – No one was hip to him, so again I probably could have gotten him a little later, but I was thrilled to have him and his upside this late. My plan is to also get Bo Scaife.
James Jones - Had to take a shot here, nice 6th WR in a PPR league.
Rex Grossman – Nice 13th round pick.
Adrian Peterson – Just an upside RB pick in the 14th, he’ll be money if Benson gets hurt.
Green Bay Defense – I love this defense this year, as you may have noticed from our very high ranking. They are looking like *the* sleeper defense of the year.
Tony Scheffler – Damn, got greedy and missed out on Scaife.
Chris Henry, RB – Why not this late?
Robbie Gould – Not bad this late, he was money last year.
David Garrard – I was ready to end it, but worth having around.
Tab Perry – Nice shot this late, plus I have Chad.
Overall, I’m very pleased with this team and I think I should make it to the finals.
