Any picks making you look like a genius already?

For all of our NFL Fantasy and gaming enthusiasts. RATING: PG
  • Mine:

    Reggie Bush - 4th round (10 man standard league (1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, no flex)
    Jordy Nelson - 5th round (the next pick)

    I also got Jason Witten decently late (8th round?). He looks like he'll be a catch magnet again this year.

    My big regret though is taking Calvin Johnson over LeSean McCoy with my 4th overall pick. And I don't mean that because Johnson had zip for points this week. I basically just "knew" that McCoy was going to have an insane season this year in Chip Kelly's high rushing totals read option offense, but I didn't heed my first instinct. I was 90% sure I screwed up 5 minutes after making that choice, and now I'm 100% sure.

    Even though Calvin Johnson struck out, I still got 143 points. The poor bastard who faced me got 128 points and lost. That has to suck.

  • I got Jordan Cameron for $1 late in my auction draft.

  • I picked up Joique Bell in most of the 5 leagues Im in... and always in the last or second to last round of drafting.

  • I had McCoy as my #4 back this year, and he fell to me at #11. I couldn't hit the draft button fast enough. That's more luck, though.

    Most of my bench has failed to produce as of right now, but I'm giving it a few weeks.

    However, Zach Sudfeld can go to hell. I lost by 4 points and blew awesome performances by Victor Cruz and McCoy.

  • LAST year I had Alfred Morris on all my teams and THAT made me a genius. It was like having an extra first round pick. I recommended to Sammy that he take the Broncos TE during the week..that makes me look dumb because I should have tekn him.

    Sarlacc..I feel your pain. Sudfeld was supposed to be my sure sleeper this year and he screwed me, as did the Falcons whole organization by hiding how bad Roddy White was hurt. I hope they get fined by the league for lying on their injury report.

  • Jordan Cameron, but I think he was a sleeper for everyone in the world.

    Going forward, I hope my Justin Blackmon and Rob Gronkowski picks pan out nicely. I took Gronk in the sixth in a league where TE is a semi-flex position with WR. Honestly, I drafted the best in that league, which is a 12-team snake, and I have enough #1 WRs that I can stash Gronk and just play him over my fourth WR when he's healthy. Meanwhile, my top three WRs are all top-ten, and two are top-three.

    I drafted Anquan Boldin and Doug Baldwin in one league, which is working out well so far.

    In an auction, I spent 137 of my 200 total dollars on AP and LeSean McCoy. Looking good after Week One. I wanted Mike Vick in all my leagues, but couldn't snag him in any. I had faith in Chip Kelly's offense.

  • I have Vick but I'm not willing to declare Philly for real yet. I'm hoping they have one more game and I can sell Vick high.

  • Oh, and I could've mentioned that my Shane Vereen pick was going to make me look genius, but he's now out until week 11. ARGH!

  • Let's see.

    Drafted Phillip Rivers in the last round of a 12 team league.
    Peyton Manning in the 2nd.

    My current team consists of only 2 players I drafted.

  • I picked C.J. Spiller a couple spots earlier than ESPN had him ranked, because I thought the new regime in Buffalo would recognize his greatness and utilize him accordingly.

    God, the Bills suck, and they deserve to continue sucking. They've got a guy that can carry the offense on his back in Spiller similar to how Peterson does for the Vikings, and what do they do? Give him part-time touches every effing game.

    They've also got a very underrated and underutilized receiver in Stevie Johnson. What do they do? The smart thing like Detroit does, feeding Megatron balls all the time? HELL NO. They sit there and barely throw to him.

    MORONS!!! Go to hell, Buffalo.

    (Yeah, I'm a little bitter about it; and the Spiller pick WOULD have made me look like a genius if the Bills weren't perennially retarded; but they are, I've learned my lesson, and instead I look like a dumbass.)

    Spiller was my #1 pick in a couple drafts because of how he ended last season. You're right. Screw Buffalo. What a bunch of idiots.

  • I picked up Zac Stacy, Julius Thomas, J. Reed, and Andre Brown off waivers. I started the season with pretty weak depth at TE and RB..Now I am loaded. :)

  • I picked up Zac Stacy, Julius Thomas and RW off of waivers. All have produced more than I thought they would.

    I drafted Josh Gordon (while he was still suspended) with my 8th round pick, that's turned out to be an awesome pick.

  • Had P. Manning and Lynch as keepers, Drafted AJ Green and Andre Johnson 1st and 2nd rounders.

    Picked up K. Moreno in FA early in the season (September 5th)
    Lost Finley and picked up Delanie Walker in FA
    Picked up Andre Brown in FA

    Massive amount of luck on those three in FA - got them just before they started going off.

    Yes, I am leading my league.
