  1. Who called you names? Scolled thru the thread looking for it but wasn't apparent...

    Truth be told, I don't like any of your picks except Gore in the 1st (only because he's solid every week and every year), Westbrook in the 4th (too much value not to take there) and Jackson in the 6th (that one hurt, I was taking him next pick).

    3 outta 7 ain't bad. Hopefully I can make it 4 outta 8. Always nice to shoot for 50%.

    And I'm considering changing my team name to Asshat.

  2. You guys are hilarious! First I was laughing in shock at all the great picks you were leaving me by reaching for your "youth with upside." Now it's this blind defense of your teams. Almost like I've insulted your mama or something. Friggin' funny. At the end of the day, it'll be the records and championships that speak for themselves. I hardly ever have a losing season, and when it's happened it's been because my team caught a major injury bug. Otherwise, I'm always the favorite to win the league I'm in. I'm always more knowledgable as well as draft and trade savvy.

    Now that I've promptly placed the target square on my chest, cut out the name calling and come get some. If we can't play for money, then we can at least play for pride. And those stakes have gone way up over the last few days.

  3. Hey, I calls it like I sees it. I've been pretty quiet up to now, but come on people. So many of you are drafting like Dynasty means you need to have the youngest roster. If this was a money league I know you guys would be drafting differently. There'd be more teams looking to win now as well as later. Not 3 years from now. Looking at the first 6.5 draft rounds, I have no doubt that, barring injuries, I'll be in the championship game. Anyone want to take some side bets?

    Aside from all the trash talk...I am glad I'm in this league. It's been great going back and forth with you guys...in July nonetheless. You guys all seem like quality people...now pick it up on the drafting side of things and give me some competition!

  4. Benson danced around like he was part of the Riverdance squad when he played in Chicago.

    He had a few good games last year, dont worry, he will come back to earth.

    And dont you ever call JStew a backup again, he could outrun Benson on one leg, with two linebackers on his back.

    Check the Carolina roster. I didn't call him a backup first. The Panthers coaches did.

  5. Like I've said before, it's my opinion that in this format, RBs are absolute gold. Not to be too defensive, but let's take a quick look at the 12 teams and their RBs...

    El Iguanodon = 2 starters, 1 backup

    Adrian Peterson RB, LeSean McCoy RB, Larry Johnson RB

    Texas Teabaggers = 2 starters, 1 RBBC, 1 backup

    Matt Forte RB, LaDainian Tomlinson RB, Derrick Ward RB, Darren Sproles RB

    Ill Will = 1 starter, 2 backups

    Maurice Jones-Drew RB, Shonn Greene RB, Felix Jones RB

    TEAM X = 2 starters, 1 RBBC

    Michael Turner RB, Brandon Jacobs RB, Reggie Bush RB

    I miss Football = 1 starter, 2 backups

    Chris Johnson RB, Rashard Mendenhall RB, Michael Bush RB

    Hoosier Smurfs = 2 starters, 1 backup (soon to be starter)

    Steven Jackson RB, Chris "Beanie" Wells RB, Joseph Addai RB

    Pack Attack = 2 starters

    DeAngelo Williams RB, Clinton Portis RB

    Lana Turner's Lover = 3 starters = solid

    Steve Slaton RB, Kevin Smith RB, Marion Barber RB

    Unemployed Sofa Kings = 1 for sure starter, 1 RBBC, and one either RBBC or starter (moreno)

    Knowsean Moreno RB, Ryan Grant RB, Ray Rice RB

    Team Zawacki = 1 starter (out the first few games of '09), 2 backups

    Jonathan Stewart RB, Marshawn Lynch RB, Donald Brown RB

    Trailer Park Hose = at worst 2 RBBC, at best 2 starters

    Darren McFadden RB, Pierre Thomas RB

    Fallopian Swim Team = 4 starters = very solid

    Frank Gore RB, Ronnie Brown RB, Brian Westbrook RB, Cedric Benson RB

  6. His upside is better than most at this point. And I'd rather have him than anyone who's been picked since the Eddie Royal pick...though Larry Johnson would make me think twice. Seems like everyone here is more excited for backup rookies (admittedly with potential) than someone who's guaranteed to get the Lion's (or Bengal's, I should say) share of carries.

    I wasn't expecting this to be a popular trade and pick...but I am expecting this to be the right one.

  7. Fallopian Swim Team, 7.07 - Cedric Benson, RB, Cincinnati

    I love what I've been reading about Benson's offseason. And this article really put me over the top on this guy: UPSIDE

    His ADP is towards the bottom of the 6th round, which I think is a steal. Snagging Benson at 7.07 is complete thievery.

    He may have fallen to me at 7.12, but I didn't want to take that chance.

  8. Thanks Pack. And thanks to those who I was talking trade with. I feel like I had some better deals out there, but I didn't want to miss out on my chance to get my guy.

    Pick coming momentarily...

    There is a trade to announce...

    Fallopian Swim Team trades picks 7.12 & 9.12

    Pack Attack trades picks 7.07 & 11.07

    As a result, Fallopian Swim Team is now on the clock.

    Round 7

    El Iguanodon - Matt Schaub QB

    Texas Teabaggers - Darren Sproles RB

    Ill Will - Kellen Winslow TE

    TEAM X - Antonio Bryant WR

    I miss Football - Michael Bush RB

    Hoosier Smurfs - Jerricho Cotchery WR

    Fallopian Swim Team - OTC

    Lana Turner's Lover -

    Unemployed Sofa Kings -

    Team Zawacki -

    Trailer Park Hose -

    Pack Attack -

  9. great OL < rookie QB and/or Kellen = 8 in the box all year long.

    I think that math works. B)

    A run of picks here in the next couple hours before I'm in the field all day would be super.

    Is your number around so we can text you when your pick comes? Or could you send a list to someone who has already picked this round with the players you want for your next two picks?

  10. Thanks for keeping things moving guys.

    If I were the Fallopian Swim Team and I was going to take Westbrook, I would have taken McCoy at the same time. I doubt McCoy will make it back.

    Love the Run DMC pick. He was someone that I was targeting.

    Interesting. I probably won't take McCoy even if he drops to the 5th/6th round. My team has other needs. I'm not interested at this point in the backup to my #3 RB. With Westbrook I'm picking up incredible, difference making potential. With Witten I'm picking up nearly guaranteed bigtime weekly points. I wouldn't replace Witten with an unproven rookie backup.

  11. This is actually a tough pick for me. I'm going against my better judgement on this one. When he's on, he's the best in the league. And in my flex spot, I couldn't do much better than...

    Fallopian Swim Team, 4.01 - Brian Westbrook, RB, Philadelphia

    God, I hope he plays more than 13 games.

    You're up again TPH.
