No i did it on Msn/Fox sports

The Dynasty

oh I usually just do Yahoo because it easier for me. My best team i have so far is...

QB - McNabb
WR1 - Harrison
WR2 - Ocho Cinco
WR3 - Calvin Johnson
RB1 - LT
RB2 - Benson(trying to trade) lol
TE - Gates
BN - Cadillac Williams
BN - DJ Hackett
BN - Heath Miller
BN - Jason Campbell
BN - Eddie Kennison
K - Josh Brown
DEF - New England
DEF2 - Denver

I traded Donald Driver and Kellen Winslow for CJ and Gates.

I think is a great team right now on paper.

Crazy_Chris
06-25-2007, 05:59 PM
Never tried Yahoo... Thats a damn good team though i think McNabb is going to have Monster year A la last year before the injury, and jason cambpell could have a very good year as well. Should try to work out some deal For AP i think he will have Double Digit TD's for us this year

The Dynasty
06-25-2007, 09:49 PM
yeah but its the Sharing time...thats why i havent taken him.

Crazy_Chris
06-25-2007, 10:44 PM
Yea thats true, the sad thing is even with him being a rookie and sharing time with Chester Taylor he is still the by far the most valuable viking player

Dont trade Benson hes gonna break out this year. 1000 yards and 10 TD's. That O-line is to good and hes to talented for anything less.

Crazy_Chris
06-27-2007, 07:25 PM
Yeah he could but benson had trouble staying healthy his rookie year and he was roughed up a little bit last year too and he got injured in the Superbowl(dont know the status of that injury) but it kind of makes you wonder if he will be able hold up throughout the season when he has to carry the load

Just got done with my first draft of the season heres who i came out with...

QB: Marc Bulger
RB: Steven Jackson
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Dieon Branch
WR/RB: Edgerrin James
TE: Alger Crumpler
DST: Pittsburgh
K: Nate Kaeding

BN: Ben Roethlisberger
BN: Donte Stalworth
BN: Bernard Berrian
BN: Dallas Clark
BN: Leon Washington
BN: Chris Brown

Im not estatic about it but i am feeling confident

The Dynasty
06-29-2007, 07:08 PM
Im not feeling your Running Backs at All other than Jackson. Edge is still going to have a tough time i think witht hat Offensive Line, and Leon Washington wont get as much playing time with Thomas Jones and then Brown still iffy. Fitz and Branch are good WRS.

Crazy_Chris
06-29-2007, 07:17 PM
I think that Edge is going to bounce back very well this year. He was bringing it together towards the end of last year even with that horrible o-line. The cardinals also added Levi Brown and got a better coach to help that o-line. It's just one of them feelings i thought about the pick and i just felt good about it so i did it.

I don't like my other two running backs that much but i think Chris brown has a decent chance to beat out both Lendale White and Chris Henry for the starting job in Tenessee and i got with the second to last pick in the entire draft. Leon washington was explosive last year they picked up Thomas jones but i think he will still get a fair amount of touches.

15 Rounds.

I just finished my first ever fantasy draft:

QB:drew brees
WR:steve smith
WR:anquan boldin
WR:braylon edwards

RB:adrian peterson
TE:anthony gonzalez
K:jason elam

BN:sidney rice

Crazy_Chris
07-08-2007, 11:15 PM
Qb:Good, personally im not sold on Drew brees putting up numbers like last year but he will still be decent. Michael Vick is a good backup as long as he is playing this year and not in jail

WR's:Steve Smith & Anquan boldin is a great combo Braylon Edwards could have a nice year but i wouldn't be willing to bet on it with their QB situation. I like sidney rice i think he could wind up having a marques colston kind of year but im not to sold on Troy Williamson right now.

RB's:this is the position that you are the worst of at, Clinton Portis I think will come back strong but after that you are not to great off AD i think will be a monster for us this year getting double digit TDs but he's probably not going to get a whole lot of carries while he's sharing time with Chester Taylor. Dominic Rhodes is sharing time with Lamont Jordan and he just got Suspended for the first 4 games of the year so now he could potentially lose his spot on the depth chart to Michael Bush(if Healthy) or if lamont jordan plays like he did a couple of years ago dominic might not see much time

TE:Tony Gonzalez is a great TE
DEF:Baltimore what bad can be said about them?

All in all not too bad for your first time.

Im in shock right now... someone in one of my leagues dropped Andre Johnson and his other wide recievers are Reggie Wayne(good but it gets worse after this) Amani Toomer, Ernest Wilford, and Arnaz Battle :| hopefully i can get Andre but its a longshot since im 12 on the waiver wire....... anyways to the topic at hand i would have to agree with giver some time in the last week of august or early september right before the season begins

My team is

Tom Brady/Romo
Westbrook/Portis/F.Taylor/Peterson(Minn)/Betts/M.Bush
Bolden/Chambers/Bruce/Stallworth
Crumpler
Elam
Minnesota D
what do yall think Need to make some moves maybe at wide out and back up te but have the fire power I think. I choose 9th in a 12 man league

Crazy_Chris
07-18-2007, 05:43 PM
Wow Westbrook slipped all the way to 9... i think you have a good team overall but a better 2nd wideout would be where i would look to make a move

The main issue I have is your WR. Bolden is a stud, but behind him there are a lot of ?'s. Chambers had a horrendous season last year, so I wouldn't be relying on him for too much production. Bruce is getting old, and they brought in some new weapons on offense that could hinder his production. As for Stallworth, he has potential to be a very good fantasy #2/border line #1 WR, but with the situation that his is in (New England brought in a boatload of talent at WR and has a solid TE in Watson) I think his stats will be down this year. Not to mention he is behind Moss and will be fighting with Welker and Javkson for cathes.

your QB's and RB's are very solid. Landing Brady, Romo, Westbrook, Portis (who i think will have a bouce-back season) is very impressive. Infact, I think you could use either Romo, Taylor, or Peterson in some type of a trade to increase you WR position.

The TE spot is ok with Crumpler, but his level of production will very with the status of Vick. He is by far Vick's favorite target, but if Vick is gone, don't be surprised to see his status flatline.

For D I think Minny is usually a risk, because when they excelle at one area they usually are weak in another. hopefully this year will be different though.

Overall, I think you did fairly solid. I would say a B/B+.

what shocked me is getting Portis in the third I got chambers in the seventh which he had extreme value the wide outs got plucked while i was grabbing extra rbs I love the backs I got but if you look closely you see Portis and westbrook have had their share of injuries along with fred taylor the other guys are part time backs.

My jury is out on Romo but I plan on using him to add a better wide out and trying to pick up kitna for one week.
There was just to much value at rb to select a second te.
but thanx for the comments keep them coming

i just had my first draft of the year. I had the second pick in a 12 man league, and it went a little something like this:

1. Steven Jackson
2. clinton portis
3. steve smith
4. donavan mcnabb
5. reggie brown
6. vernon davis
7. AD
8. bernard berrian
9. ben roethlisberger
10. jerry porter
11. lamont jordan
12. tatum bell
13. jacksonville
14. micheal clayton
15. john kasey

i know I went a little heavy on the RB's, but there was sh*t to pick from then, so I had to work with what i had. i plan on droping someone though and getting out boy sidney rice. overall though, I am fairly happy.

Crazy_Chris
08-26-2007, 06:19 PM
I would Drop Micheal Clayton.... I don't know about sidney rice he was my first choice originally but it looks like Tarvaris Jackson likes Bobby Wade they have been good all pre-season so i'd go with bobby wade if he's still available

yeah wade was drafted though before I had a chance, but yeah clayton was a reach, but he was just so good his rookie year I feel like he has shown he has the ability to play. we will see though.
