12-team NFFC draft results (from 8/30)

Here are the results of the 12-team PPR 3rd round reversal NFFC 20-round draft I participated in last night in New York City.

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. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive and draft players you like 1-2 rounds earlier than their ADP.

Here a few other notes from the draft.

  1. I’m not a big fan of the 3rd round reversal when you’re picking at the top of round one. So 1 pick after I made my second pick, 23rd overall, round 2 ended and round 3 started with the team that drafted 12th. In a normal draft, I would have had a crack at either Julius Thomas, Andre Ellington, Shane Vereen, Roddy White, or Keenan Allen. I would have taken a WR there, most likely Allen (although I do love Roddy). That made me use my third and fourth picks on Michael Floyd and Cordarrelle Patterson. I felt fortunate to get those two, but it would have been nice to get a crack at Allen. Then again, I did get an earlier pick in round 4.
  2. I did hold off on my QB, but I didn’t get optimal value with Jay Cutler (who went 40 picks after I took my QB) or Tony Romo. But at the time, Matthew Stafford at 62 overall was pretty appealing to me, so I played it safer and grabbed him.
  3. I went with Mark Ingram over Carlos Hyde as my #4 RB, which I might regret. Then again, I took Ingram for a reason: I do think he’s legit. For good measure, I also grabbed Khiry Robinson for depth.
  4. We haven’t been optimistic about Sammy Watkins, but I couldn’t pass on him at 110 overall, especially with a professional QB in Kyle Orton added to the roster.
  5. I missed getting Carson Palmer as my backup by 1 pick, and I would have felt good getting Palmer, although my starter Matthew Stafford is pretty durable these days and I did land a good backup in Andy Dalton.
  6. I opted to handcuff Fred Jackson with Bryce Brown over trying to figure out the backup RB spot with Doug Martin. Bobby Rainey is the guy to get for now, but Mike James could be back in the mix, so I took the better player in Brown, since I know they love him.
  7. I grabbed Eric Ebron as my TE3, which was mainly a function of acquiring a high-end talent for the upside.
