    8 player league. I had the7th pick overall with a snake draft:

    Round 1: (RB) Ryan Grant
    Round 2: (RB) Stevan Jackson
    Round 3: (QB) Tom Brady
    Round 4: (WR) Brandon Marshall
    Round 5: (WR) Steve Smith (NYG)
    Round 6: (TE) Antonio Gates
    Round 7: (RB) Jamaal Charles
    Round 8: (QB) Joe Flaco
    Round 9: (TE) Owen Daniels
    Roun 10: (D/ST) Phil Eagle
    Roun 11: (D/ST) GB Packers
    Roun 12: (WR) Devin Aromashodu
    Roun 13: (K) Stehen Gostkowski
    Roun 14: (RB) Arian Foster
    Roun 15: (K) Matt Crosby
    Roun 16: (QB) Chad Henne

    There it is. My sleeper of the draft was wide reciever Devin Aromashodu who is Jay Cutlers old college team mate and number one target.

    Post your FF draft here if you'd like!

    Earl Bennet went to Vandy with Cutler not Aromashodu! But Aromashodu and Knox could be big fantasy wise under a Martz O.

    your right....bennet was with him. I picked Aromashodu over Knox cause it seems to be Cutler's no 1 guy late in the season. Hopefully it continues. We all know Marty likes to go to the Air. "Witness the Greatest Show on Turf"

    Look for Owen Daniels to have good year. He was on pace of the 1000 yard mark last year before getting hurt

    I'm hoping he picks up right where he left off last year before he got hurt. What I'm really banking on is the Manning / Wayne combo, if they don't have a good year, I'm probably in trouble.

    Are you in a PPR league? If not then I'm not crazy about Steve Smith. Ryan Grant is OK but doesn't excite me. I wouldn't have Steven Jackson on my team. He won't make it through all 16 games and will be stuffed at the line many times.

    Two kickers and three QB's?! Brady and Gates will be solid for you as well as the Eagles D and both of your kickers. I think you did well getting Charles in the 7th and Foster in the 14th. Foster was the steal of your draft IMO. Not sure about Brandon Marshall this year. Could go either way.

    I'm drafting next weekend. I won both of my leagues last year. 12 team leagues. 1 PPR and a non-PPR.

    Good luck!

    That's a pretty solid lineup you got there. The first 4 picks and Daniels are nice. Good draft and even more impressive from the 10 spot.

    I took a gamble on steven jackson hoping he can get in the endzone more this year. He'll get his yardage though. Steve Smith I wasn't to happy about myself but hopefully one of my other receivers can step up.

    My goal was getting a starting lineup that could contend against anyone's. When your in a 12 man league with 16 rounds, there isn't going to be much left at the end of the draft. The way I look at it, who's on your bench isn't too big of a deal, it's how you play the free agent market throughout the season because players are going to get hurt and no-name guys are going to step up huge, it happens every year.

    This is our 8th year in a row playing and we still have the original 8 guys, we've added a few over the years. I can't wait until 9/9!

    I can't believe Foster was available at 14, and Henne at 16? Both of those could end up being huge for you. Also, getting Jamal Charles in the 7th is getting great value. You probably could get away with dropping one, if not both of your reserve D/ST and Kickers. It wouldn't be a bad idea finding another WR(or two), the NFL is becoming more and more pass oriented and WR's have been putting up some crazy numbers the last couple of years. Does your league give a point per reception?

    Yes sir. I work that waiver wire like it's my bitch! That's one of the most important things to do in FF. I can't tell you how many times I've had bad drafts or early injuries and recovered through the waiver wire.

    I picked up Ryan Grant off the waivers in his first year when he finished the season strong. I picked up Colston in his rookie year. I picked up Austin last year before he blew up.

    Sometimes you just have to take a chance. I drafted Matt Schaub (major talent, but injury concerns) in the 5th round last year and he took me to the championship. I took a chance on Ray Rice and he was money.

    I can't wait to dominate again this year. We've been playing for 5 years and 8 of the guys have been with us from the beginning as well. Usually we have 12 but this year we only have ten.
