    The League without Tebow is just not the same.
    You're right, it's much better without him

    I don't think that's true, it's just a shame that the ridiculous media circus followed him around everywhere he went. I actually feel sorry for the guy.

    If ever there was a QB who needed to be sat for 2-3 years and retaught how to play QB it was Tebow, but unfortunately Tebowmania meant that was impossible.

    Crazy how quickly Tebow's Quarterback skills regressed.

    What's the point in taking on Tebow as a project when every draft contains multiple guys who are better and there are already more than 32 better guys in the league? Just draft or sign one of those people and have a 1 year project instead of a 3 year one.

    Which team should seriously have used Tebow as their project? Osweiler is a better project for the Broncos and before they had him, Brady Quinn probably was too. Mallet is by far a better person to invest 2-3 years in for the Patriots. The Raiders have Pryor if they want a project, the Jets have Geno. Gabbert and Ponder are both more developed and younger. There's really no point in me listing literally every single NFL team that has a better option for quarterback development than Tim Tebow. Seriously, when you say he should be in the league, you're saying he should be on one of the 32 rosters. WHICH ONE?!??!!?

    And his quarterback skills regressed??? Uh.. from what, exactly? When did they regress?

    I'm not sure this is true. The NFL is about entertainment of fans and nobody can say they weren't entertained by Tim Tebow whether you loved or hated him.

    Rob Gronkowski practising in full pads now. Getting closer and closer to a return

    Would rather have him healthy at the end of the year than the start.

    I don't like it. Not only is he a cocky Aggie piece of **** (nope, no judgement here), he also has no class and composure. Yeah, I get it, he's a kid. But top-tier young QBs like Wilson, Luck, RG3? Those guys were class acts in in their college time and were both respected and feared.
    "Getting under an opponent's skin" is IMHO such a vastly overrated "skill" as compared to true leadership on and off the field.

    QB - Michael Vick
    RB - Doug Martin
    RB - Steven Ridley
    WR - Vincent Jackson
    WR - Eric Decker
    TE - Zach Sudfeld
    WR/RB - Steven Jackson
    K - Ryan Succop
    DEF - Tampa D

    BN - Carson Palmer
    BN - Giovani Bernard
    BN - James Jones
    BN - Josh Gordon
    BN - Kendal Thompkins
    BN - Stephen Williams

    Obviously been a bit cute going for players like Sudfeld as my starting TE, but I'm in a 14 team league so sacrifices had to be made, and I'm convinced Zach Miller will be a factor for Seattle when he returns from injury.
    Getting Doug Martin, Steven Ridley and Steven Jackson is a serious coup though

    Is Kendal Thompkins Kebrell or did his brother get drafted as well ?

    I like your team apart from TE haha. I like Sudfeld but unless Gronk goes down early I think he will get around 400-500 yards with 5-6 touchdowns.

    Whoops! Yeah, Kebrell. They're both ridiculous names so I'm excusing myself

    As far as tight ends go I'll be happy with that - what Vernon Davis scored last year, but I think he'll be quietly effective with Hernandez out of the picture and the uncertainty at WR.

    Also, Gronk will almost certainly miss a few games

    Doh I meant Kenbrell haha mispelt his name as well

    I dunno if reports are to be believed Gronkowski is very near. Might miss 2 or 3 games but after the first game is when the supposed recovery period is. With Gronk you know your pretty much pencilled in for a touchdown a game haha

    I think Sudfeld will have a good season though. I like the running backs you've picked up. Decker might have his stats reduced with Welker in town though. Vincent Jackson very good again.

    Decker was my 5th round pick (someone took Russell Wilson the pick before me so I decided to buy my time and take one of Stafford & Vick as there was only 1 other person needing a QB and I would have been happy with either) so well worth a flyer IMO.
    I was drafting with quite a few idiots. I'm a homer Seahawks fan, but someone (not a seattle fan) took the D in the FIFTH round. I picked up Tampa in the 13th, I think they'll be surprisingly above average with their essentially brand new secondary. It COULD backfire, but considering half the league picked their defense between the 5th and 9th rounds, I'm OK if that's the case.

    Denver
    New Orleans
    Cincinnati
    Kansas City
    Cleveland
    Detroit
    New England
    Indianapolis
    Seattle
    Tampa Bay
    Pittsburgh
    Arizona
    San Francisco
    Dallas
    Washington
    Houston

    to win, I'd get odds of 1103.61/1

    Edit: Is anyone playing that NFLUK version of fantasy football which is sort of more like soccer fantasy football?

    I've got

    QB - Colin Kaepernick
    RB - Adrian Peterson
    RB - LeSean McCoy
    WR - Larry Fitzgerald
    WR - Eddie Royal
    TE - Tyler Eifert
    D - Bengals
    K - Randy Bullock

    and came in on the 18M budget.
