    Consistency is key for the first couple of rounds as well as looking at prior injuries from not only the previous season but going back to even the college years. It's also good to take risks on players you believe will have a breakout year, even if they're rookies. I picked up Julio Jones in one of my leagues and so far he's been solid in the preseason.
    I took CJ Spiller last year as my no. 2 RB. It's put me off taking rookies. Fortunately I got LeSean McCoy as my no. 3...

    Only just seen this because I was doing the draft but I picked him too.

    QB: Roethlisburger, Hasselbeck
    RB: Foster, Bradshaw, Hightower, Thomas Jones
    WR: Knox, Ward, Jones, Decker, Massaquoi
    TE: Kevin Boss
    K: Henery/Hanson
    Def: Raiders

    Took a few risks and missed out on several of my picks but it could have ended worse

    Not best pleased with mine-its a very boom or bust team. Wells and Lynch should carry their offense, Vick is a top notch QB and Bowe is still the Chiefs only decent target. However it could well be that they each bust...

    Aye. Pretty sure it was last pick and my time was running out. I meant to grab and old RB but grabbed a second kicker. Oh well :lol:

    I wanted a QB first but the two I was going to take were taken before me despite me having an early pick. I'm pretty happy with my QBs. I wanted to grab Forte and the Bears def but they both went along with quite a few others I wanted but I'm reasonably happy with my team considering I have very little idea. I just tried to pick players I knew and liked at the beginning
