Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
For those who have already answered, thank you. Just trying to get more opinions. Anyway, I'm in an 8 team, no PPR, standard scoring H2H league and had the 3rd overall pick. I was hoping for some feedback on my draft. In parentheses is the round in which the player was drafted. I know I lack an elite receiver, but I think my WR as a group is pretty solid and should be able to put up decent numbers.
1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, 6 BN
QB- P Manning (2)
RB- Westbrook (1), Gore (3)
WR- Holt (5), Jennings (6), Cotchery (8)
TE- Gates (7)
DEF- Bears (14)
K- Kaeding (15)
BN- L Johnson (4), McNabb (9), L Evans (10), A Gonzalez (11), T Jones (12), V Davis (13)
Notable undrafted: Ronnie Brown, Joey Galloway, Derek Mason, Matt Forte, Aaron Rodgers, Ricky Williams, Donald Driver, SEA Def, Kurt Warner, Muhsin Muhammad
I think Donald Driver is a must add. He should regain solid numbers again and finish with I say at least 5 TD's. I am not a huge fan of Jennings and remember Anthony Gonzalez is still the #3 WR in Indy. I understand why people are high on him but he will not get many looks unless Harrison gets hurt. I would trade Larry Johnson or Frank Gore for a top WR. You are going to bench one of them and I do not expect very good years out of any of them especially LJ. Last guy I do not like is Lee Evans. See if he has any trade value left. Trent Edwards sucks

Thanks for the advice. I'll look into those moves. The only reason I drafted LJ after I already had 2 starting RB was because of the value. With no elite receivers left in Round 4. I figured I'd grab Johnson and use him as trade bait. I understand what you're saying about Gonzo, but I'm not sold on Harrison being 100%. I felt the other way on Evans. Since it's not PPR, I felt Evans' big play ability would get me decent yardage and some TDs.

I was thinking the same thing, especially since we only start 2 RB per week. I drafted Johnson even after I had my 2 starters strictly from the value he provided (the top wideouts, TO, Moss, Edwards, Wayne, A Johnson were all off the board already) and figured he'd be decent trade bait, especially since he'll likely be getting a lot of touches this year as KC doesn't appear to have many weapons outside of LJ, Bowe, and an aging Gonzalez.
