2012 Draft Analysis

See Spoiler Below for Draft Analysis:
Spoiler:
New England Canaries - First Three Picks: – A. Rodgers (QB), J. Charles (RB), D. Martin (RB).
Little bit of physiological war games from Olly in the draft room. Convincing us that Brady was his pick, only to pluck for Rodgers – correct decision. Jamaal Charles could be fab value at number 28 given his lofty status last year, but it’s all about the ACL. Doug Martin is in for a great year, but depth at RB is totally lacking with Daniel Thomas as the only other pick. Olly instead built through “sleeper” picks, taking wideouts Darius Heyward Bey, Michael Floyd and Kendall Wright to complement Jeremy Maclin. Also drafted 3 TEs, not as crazy as it sounds given the flex rules of the league – Kyle Rudolph or Coby Fleener could be regular features in the flex if their young QBs progress this year. Worst pick is likely to be Doug Baldwin in round 7, unless Cherries gives up a bounty for him!

Beast Mode - First Three Picks: – A. Foster (RB), A. Johnson (WR), W. Welker (WR).
One of two teams inactive at the draft and it shows in a slightly suspect draft class. The top 5 are pretty handy, especially if Rivers cuts down on the interceptions and Andre Johnson can stay healthy – his WRs as a whole are very strong with Dre complemented by Wes Welker and Dwayne Bowe. Classic autopick logic meant taking the Packers Defence and Seb Janikowski way too early. This meant missing out on mid round depth and potential sleepers -  Laurent Robinson is destined to fall back after last year’s production, Evan Royster is subject to Shanahanagains , Santana Moss and Nate Burleson aren’t top targets in their retrospective attacks anymore and James Starks has flattered to deceive in Green Bay.

The Stormbringers - First Three Picks: – R. Rice (RB), R. White (WR), H. Nicks (WR).
The second autopick team fared slightly better than the first in my opinion. Running back is slightly weak yet again, though it’s a common feature of 14 team drafts if you don’t go heavy on them early. If Shonn Greene performs for once then it will be looking much better. Matt Ryan at QB could be an absolute steal in round 5, from the sounds of the draft comments he was the target of many, myself included! The wide receiver corps is tidy, with Roddy White and Hakeem Nicks (drafted a fair way after Victor Cruz) complemented by Demaryius Thomas who could breakout under Peyton Manning. Not sure he will really have wanted Randy Moss late on, but Greg Little could be alright as a later round flyer.

Los Angeles Leopards - First Three Picks: – T. Brady (QB), M. Turner (RB), R. Bush (RB).
Mikeygnfl had mentioned his probable pick of Drew Brees, but maybe he was expecting Brady to be gone by then as he selected the Patriots QB fourth overall instead. Michael Turner is possible a risk, everyone thinks his production will drop but I’m sure this was said last year as well. With that in mind running back depth is quite thin with Roy Helu a potential reach in round 8 due to Shanahanigans. A rather crazy drafting of David Akers in round 6 masked some good mid round picks, namely Torrey Smith and Justin Blackmon who could be huge as the only think in a potentially improved passing attack for the Jags. Alshon Jeffrey in round 10 could be a steal and it’s possible that Dwayne Allen supersedes Coby Fleener in the pecking order up in Indy. Mike also took a bit of late gamble on Nick Foles whilst awaiting a Mike Vick injury… if that coincides with Brady’s bye week he will look like a genius.

Thunder and Lightning - First Three Picks: – D. Brees (QB), D. Murray (RB), A. Peterson (RB).
Why take a second QB when you draft Drew Brees – as a result Thunder and Lightning’s roster contains masses of RBs and WRs. If Peterson comes back to be himself quickly then the backfield is devastating – certainly will be strong later in the year when Peterson is 100%, after all it’s the rushing pair that brought the Trams back from the dead last year. There are a couple of serviceable receivers – Wallace will provide spark and Boldin will grind out tough yards in the Ravens offence. Even Nate Washington could be boosted depending on how Locker gets on and if Kenny Britt draws strong coverage. I think Antonio Gates is in for a big year now that he is the undisputed top man in San Diego. Took a flier on Ronnie Hillman… will it work out?  

San Francisco Trams - First Three Picks: – L.McCoy (RB), G. Jennings (WR), F. Jackson (RB).
Pretty happy with my own draft - McCoy dropping to number 6 was a godsend as I was otherwise going to take a punt on CJ2K just to avoid taking a QB in round 1. Fred Jackson is the number two, but you worry about a drop in production with Issac Redman as the number 3 potentially loosing work later in the season as Mendenhall comes back to Pittsburgh. Jennings and Bryant are at WR, with Robert Meachem taken as a third. Jermichael Finley was a bit of a homer pick, but I have a habit of missing TEs in the mid rounds and ending up with Brandon Pettigrew as a starter – here I got him as a backup and potential matchup flex player. I gambled on the selections of the autopick teams ahead of me and missed out on Matt Ryan and Phillip Rivers effectively by one pick, but got Cutler and Locker later. Ronnie Brown in round 13 could be a bargain for a couple of weeks whilst Ryan Matthews recovers.

Prestige Worldwide - First Three Picks: – C. Johnson (RB), B. Marshall (WR), P. Harvin (WR).
I quite like this team. Chris Johnson will be much better this year with the full offseason and BeJarvus Green-Ellis is a good compliment as the clear lead back in Cincinnati. Jacquizz Rodgers could be a breakout candidate this year and getting Mendenhall from under my nose in round 12 could prove to be a steal later in the year when he’s fully fit. Peyton Manning is risk reward, could smash it for 4th round value, but who knows really. Percy Harvin is getting a lot of hype and sits well as a compliment to Brandon Marshall. Titus Young could truly emerge as a force this year, especially if the Madden Curse hits Megatron.

Highbury Tankers - First Three Picks: – D. McFadden (RB), L. Fitzgerald (WR), S. Smith (WR).
SuperTankers debut in the league started under the autopick system, but he got back in control later on. Darren McFadden is worthy of the pick if he stays healthy, but RB depth after him could be considered weak as he couldn’t get Taiwan Jones as a handcuff, Toby Gerhart will likely loose carries as the season progresses, Beanie Wells is a guy many see losing his job to Ryan Williams and Isaiah Pead is no more than a deep sleeper. The team does do well at WR, with Larry Fitzgerald capable of putting up plenty no matter who throws him the balls. Steve Smith is still the only real guy in Carolina and I rate Eric Decker as a better prospect this year than Demaryius Thomas, plus Jon Baldwin and Danny Amendola are guys I like. The Tankers took Mike Vick as there QB, protecting the investment with Russel Wilson who could do anything this year.

Tony Romo and Juliet - First Three Picks: – C. Johnson (WR), M. Jones-Drew (RB), T. Richardson (RB).
It’s tough to argue that someone is weak at wide receiver when they draft Megatron in round one, but Leeds Cowboys possess only three on his roster and one of them is the largely unknown Rueben Randle who is unlikely to set the world on fire. The team is strongest at running back with the second round selection of Maurice Jones-Drew becoming much more sensible given the end of his holdout occurred right before draft time. Trent Richardson is a potentially injury risk, but when he hits the field he will be focal point of the Browns offence and is worth the third round pick. Sleeper running backs include Michael Bush who should see a decent amount of work in Chicago and Cedric Benson who could have a surprising year as nobody will be go run stuff heavy on the Packers. I personally think Rob Gronkowski may slip considerably this year and so Aaron Hernandez is a great pick, certainly the better value TE when the rounds are considered. His QB is RG3 whose rushing ability could rack up the points.

Knights of Cydonia - First Three Picks: – M. Forte (RB), V. Cruz (WR), D. Sproles (RB).
MockingJay33 debuts in the league and went for the homer picks in Victor Cruz, drafted well before Hakeem Nicks, and even his former 606v2 alias Mario Mannigham now of the 49ers. His roster is well balanced with the trio of Matt Forte, Darren Sproles and Willis McGahee likely filling the roster week in week out. I think DeSean Jackson is a risk, but round 5 is hardly overdrafting – In fact my favourite pick here is Malcolm Floyd in round 7 who I think will benefit hugely from the unfortunate injury to Vincent Brown. Jared Cook is another player I was targeting as I think he will gel well with new QB Jake Locker. I always found Devery Henderson a complete fantasy nightmare as it’s always all or nothing but now that Robert Meachem has left the Saints he should get greater consistency and in round 13 you can hardly complain. Big Ben is the QB and he always produces a chunk of points, plus the Steeler run game is practically a hospital nowadays.

Child Please - First Three Picks: – C. Newton (QB), J. Graham (TE), S. Jackson (RB).
The last two number one picks in the real draft occupy the QB spots for GB1919. Cam Newton won’t likely produce as last year but still warrants the high billing – however I still would have gone with Matt Stafford. Jimmy Graham is basically a wideout, but I still begrudge drafting a tight end so high without having got a RB in round 1. The rest of the roster contains a lot of sleepers, some of whom like Antonio Brown are already established but seem set to kick on this season. Peyton Hillis is great value due to Jamaal Charles injury in Kansas  and Donald Brown is the obvious back in Indy who will have to run to try and ease the learning curve for Andrew Luck. His late round receivers are full of potential with Randall Cobb, Leonard Hankerson and Brian Quick all emerging options in their respective passing attacks. Each however does remain an unknown quantity and there will be plenty of temptation to drop them in the early weeks to make room for the inevitable undrafted player who excels early.

Suck My Vick No Romo - First Three Picks: – M. Stafford (QB), J. Jones (WR), J. Nelson (WR).
If he was running a real football team GSC would sure know how to lose the lockeroom – he promptly placed half the team on the trade block within minutes of the draft finishing. Having got Matt Stafford (great value) 12th overall he got the fantasy worlds new darling in Julio Jones who will likely produce a tonne of points. Otherwise the wide receivers remain strong, with Jordy Nelson and Miles Austin the theoretical number two’s in prolific pass attacks and Stevie Johnson the only major weapon for the Bills air game. He waited late to get the first running back, Frank Gore, with the 45th pick and that could be a problem later in the year due to his other draft picks at the position. Ryan Williams should grow into the starting role in Arizona but the other two backs, Montario Hardesty and Rashard Jennings will start off strong but likely fade as there offences featured backs return from injury and holdout respectively. GSC also stood by a “no kicker” policy, so somebody will become the odd man out in a matter of days.

BamBams Warriors - First Three Picks: – M. Lynch (RB), R. Matthews (RB), Brandon Lloyd (WR).
I have to say I feel there was a little bit of overdrafting by BamBam in the early phases. Indeed Marshawn Lynch went much later in the Keeper draft and in my view isn’t worth a first round pick. However with the snake draft I can see the logic in getting two theoretical feature backs early because you’re not going to get another pick for so long.  For that reason I get the drafting of Ryan Matthews who I believe got be a total star if he could just stay healthy. He’s handcuffed Lynch with Robert Turbin which is sensible, plus Mikel Leshoure is a great pick as I see him taking the starting job off Kevin Smith in Detroit once his suspension is done. Eli Manning will put up solid points and won’t need a backup except during the bye. In terms of receivers I think Brandon Lloyd will do well as he is reunited with Josh McDaniels, Pierre Garcon is the current top guy in Washington and Davon Bess is literally the only person Miami has to throw at. Jermaine Gresham could be a fantastic tight end, one who I was targeting, but he often flatters to deceive.

Dyslexia United - First Three Picks: – R. Gronkowski (TE), AJ Green (WR), T. Romo (QB).
Final pick in round 1 for Pr4wn and it’s always tough waiting so long between pairs of picks. Getting a tight end in round one throws a draft, but Gronkowski will still produce like a receiver even with a drop off from last year. AJ Green is a fab pick as well, plus I’m a massive fan of Tony Romo from a fantasy perspective. Ahmad Bradshaw is a feature back for now, but I imagine there will be selection dilemmas each week between Ben Tate who is a talent number two and Jonathon Stewart whose carries yoyo each week. His receivers I like, particularly Kenny Britt who has a one game suspension but will be the number one target if he can stay on the field. Emmanuel Sanders and Jacoby Ford are both deep sleepers who have the downfield threat to deliver long touchdowns but could otherwise deliver small scores. His draft was perhaps tainted by an accidentally drafting of the Bears DST early on - I wouldn’t say it ruined the draft, but who knows how events would have changed without it.

Its a tough one... You have to be very clued up when making your 2nd and 3rd round picks which are consecutive and absolutely key to success.
You need to know what positions and players you want to fit in with the known quantity of your first pick and be prepared for your sleepers or underrated players being off the board because live drafts don't go anything like the NFL.com autodrafts which tend to be predictable

Yeah it's gonna be a tough start for me in my first ever fantasy draft Laugh
And if I'm honest I haven't even started thinking about my strategy yet. Might do a Raiders and take Janikowski 1st round Wink

RE draft time
As long as West & Keeper leagues don't clash We should be ok
8 will be in both
Mocking jays NFC east league also drafts that day which at least 3 of us are in ,so changing times might be difficult

Don't! In my experience Defence and Kickers go in the last few rounds, some of the top defences may go before that but most tend to go around the same time. Also depends on how many are going to go with just 1 def/kicker and carry 2 more players and decide to cut someone for bye week.

You can check by going to the page for your team (it will be empty but you will get the jist!)

Should be
1xQB, 2xRB, 2xWR, 1xTE, 1xK, 1xDEF, 1xFlex (RB, WR or TE) in the starting lineup
6 bench players of any kind

Olly
Most players will pick
1 x qb / 2 x rb / 3 x wr / 1 x te in any order in 1st 7 rounds to fill main roster positions

As GSC said I will cry if you waste 1st pick on a D

Just don't draft a kicker till last and a defence close to last and you cant really go wrong if you look at some of the stats they give you about who they rate and in what order

Do some mock drafts, you can get an idea of what players might be available at your draft slot. Also don't pick a defence first!!!

Last year I got the Cowboys D on autodraft and they were diabolical from a fantasy perspective. Ended up from about week 4 spending the season just picking up from week to week whichever free agent defense looked like it had the best match up that week. Worked out fairly well as I ended up in the playoffs.

Likewise. 9pm would be preferable though 4pm isn't a great problem.

I'm 4th again this season. I was 4th pick last year and got Aaron Rodgers. Which was 'early to take a QB'. I also gambled pretty early on David Akers who went on to have a great season. I think it maybe harder this season but I hopefully have a few 'surprise' picks ready.

QB at #1 will score you more points, but means that the rest of your roster - particularly RB - often feels weak.

Yeah that's what I think. I was wondering whether to get a secure RB, and try for a wildcard type QB or the other way round.

But for QB first its between Rodgers and Brady. At RB its probably gonna be Rice for me. If that helps you all sort out who you want Whistle

Not too much to do really, drafts can be so unpredictable. Can only predict the first 10 picks or so but could be in any order

I usually write several players down for each position on a piece of paper and go from there. With this draft and the keeper league draft following it will be interesting to see how they differ? I usually end up with the same players.
