Well everyone who was in it last year is around in some capacity, except Andre, but Mark wants his spot anyway. So we could do the same as last year, but we all know some people cough JB will be inactive as always.

Cool! Smile

Actually, Jimmy, you were the champion last time I did Fantasy Football with you guys! Just for kicks, who's all taken home the title since?

I'm ready for the new season! I think Adam (switza) and Mark will make fine additions, if they are interested.

I did a few mocks this morning and there were a few things I tended to notice:

- In one mock draft I was in this morning, Odell Beckham Jr. was the 1st overall pick. I imagine if there are any avid Giants fans who get the top pick this will be the case.

- Defense usually starts getting picked at around the 9th or 10th rounds. Kickers will get picked later on, maybe in the 11th round.

- QB's like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers will usually stick around for the 3rd or 4th rounds. Other top-tier QB's might stick around for another round or two. In one case I remember, Drew Brees stayed available until the 6th round.

- I've noticed that I usually tend to slack in TE. The one exception is when I ended up with Reed in a 3rd round.

- There is usually a Defense and Kicker I tend to gravitate towards. Not giving who either is, but I do tend to go for that defense in around the 9th round and the kicker not too long after.

I always go defense next to last round, kicker last round. They're pretty interchangeable to me. Unless I have a top 5 defense, I typically switch them up each week based on match-ups.

OBJ #1 overall is a stretch I think. It will be unknown how his numbers change with Marshall as the secondary option. I feel Brown, Jones, Green and maybe Evans are more consistent, better options.

Yeah, I know. I'm just saying what I observe with these mock drafts. OBJ I just let other people take as I tend to go for other people in his place.

I figure workhorse RBs like Zeke, David Johnson, and Bell would make the top picks since they are so rare now.  Many teams have turned to committees at that position, don't know who you can rely on to give you numbers on any given week. Productive receivers are a dime a dozen in the league.

Yeah, those 3 are usually the first people to go, although Brown might come between Johnson and Zeke. Others that sometimes get drafted ahead of their pre-draft rank include Devonta Freeman (he's been as high as 7), Melvin (gone as high as 6), and maybe even Evans if Julio Jones isn't taken off the board in the Top 5.

One tip I would suggest is that, in a league like ours where defenses actually score fairly high, it's better to pick a defense earlier than later. In fact I like to pick 2 defenses early and then play the better matchup all season.

Agree with Jimmy, I always like to have two defenses so I can pick which one to play each week.

I like to have 2 of every position so that I have backups when everyone goes on a bye.

We drew spots in my main league last night. I have the 7th pick (out of 10).
