this snook up quick, not really prepared at all for it, and 11th pick it appears, could be ugly.

Picked first in league 1, which I'm not a massive fan of. Overall I'm not that happy, good depth, but I think I'll struggle for big points score. Pretty awful WRs and 2 gambles in the early rounds on Stacy and Sankey too. All probably the consequence of one mock all pre-season!

1. Adrian Peterson RB - MIN PICK 1
2. Zac Stacy RB - STL PICK 24
3. Jordy Nelson WR - GB PICK 25
4. Matthew Stafford QB - DET PICK 48
5. Bishop Sankey RB - TEN PICK 49
6. Kendall Wright WR - TEN PICK 72
7. Vernon Davis TE - SF PICK 73
8. Pierre Thomas RB - NO PICK 96
9. Terrance Williams WR - DAL PICK 97
10. Zach Ertz TE - PHI PICK 120
11. Rueben Randle WR - NYG View VideosPICK 121
12. Jarrett Boykin WR - GB PICK 144
13. Joe Flacco QB - BAL PICK 145
14. Kenny Stills WR - NO PICK 168
15. Arizona Cardinals DEF PICK 169

Strange draft for me,probably should have left it to auto! I just hope Brees carries me to league safety. I'm projected to finish 8th,I'll take that now!

BTW my account has disappeared after all the maintenance so I've had to set up this new one! #rookie

Would've been fine if didnt auto pick me martellus bennett 2 rounds early (at least...) and then had to play catchup.

Even the email about draft grades remarked how brave it was.....yes brave is the word.

Gave me a "B" rating even though then said would finish 7-7 and come 7th. Ha.

I also got a 'B' and then it said I'd go 11-3... fat chance.

*edit - here's my report (you can access it on the league site, under draft recap as well) - must say it's a very nice touch, they must have put some work in to the software to get tailored reports like that:

BUILT FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP RUN, DUPER'S DEVILPHISH STOCKS UP ON RB TALENT

Draft Grade
B
Proj Record
11-3
Proj Finish
2
DRAFT SUMMARY
Coinciding with a nice draft position, Duper's Devilphish had an outstanding performance. They grabbed ball-carriers early, using three of their first five picks to acquire running backs. In conjunction with that drafting strategy, Duper's Devilphish ended up with one of the best foursomes of running backs in the league.
Duper's Devilphish adhered to fantasy tradition, selecting a pair of running backs with their first two picks (Adrian Peterson and Zac Stacy).
If other NFL.com users are right, Vernon Davis was a steal in the 7th round (73rd overall pick versus an ADP of 47.1).
According to ADP, it was a bit of a reach selecting Terrance Williams in the 9th round (97th overall pick versus an ADP of 120.3 across all NFL.com leagues).
Watch your players play in preseason games online.

Griese Lightning - DIV II - Picked 7th

1. Jimmy Graham TE
2. A.J. Green WR - CIN
3. Randall Cobb WR - GB
4. Frank Gore RB - SF
5. Bishop Sankey RB - TEN
6. Robert Griffin III QB - WAS
7. Kenny Britt WR - STL
8. Pierre Thomas RB - NO
9. Tony Romo QB - DAL
10. Mike Evans WR - TB
11. Carlos Hyde RB - SF
12. Denver Broncos DEF
13. Jarrett Boykin WR - GB
14. Matt Bryant K - ATL
15. Kenny Stills WR - NO

Thought the picks 6-9 held little value and hoped someone in the Top 6 may have succumbed to taking Manning early leaving me with a chance of Lacy or Megatron, but didn't happen - Thought Graham was the best value there given that NO like to throw the ball into the EZ rather than run it in
AJ Green was to good to pass up although tempted to take Stacy/Ellington/Martin there
3rd pick is where my draft stands or falls. Common sense says RB but there was no value at that point, so took Cobb, who I really like as a FF commodity, particularly in that offense and with no Finley over the middle
4th Pick went safe with Gore. SF will continue with the power game, although age may catch up with him
Went Sankey at 5, hoping he can be this years Eddie Lacy. Has little competition in Titans backfield (Shonn Greene) so should see plenty of carries
6th was RGIII - FF man crush continues, gets it together he can pick up plenty of points, but lots of ??? sees him drop with good reason
7th was Kenny Britt - Britt was my sleeper but because of loss of internet connection and not properly sorting out my board auto draft picked him up here. Then to here breaking news on Sam Bradford made matters worse
8th pick went to Pierre Thomas who looks like he could be the new Sproles in NO if pre season anything to go by. Thomas every year looks primed to lose his job, but remains NO go to guy
9th Tony Romo - insurance for RGIII, but thought this was really good value. If he's fully recovered from back surgery (and nothing to suggest he won't), he will again be a Top 10 FF QB
10th Mike Evans - This was a flyer - other more established names available but real returns if potential realised
Took Carlos Hyde as a handcuff to Gore at 11.
Denver D has improved with Miller returning, Ware also in the mix and the secondary has upgraded
At 13 took Jarrett Boykin who takes over the James Jones role - worth a shot here
14 was the Atlanta Kicker Matt Bryant. Think Atlanta's offense will bounce back - plus he's kicking indoors at least 9 times this year
Last pick was Kenny Stills. Big Average ypc and brings the only consistent deep threat in NO. Probably only a 2 or 3 catch per game player but possibility to turn that into some points

Overall short at RB, WR spoilt by the Britt pick, but think that the top 3 picks plus QB may get a few points

NFL.com has me 3rd overall - 8-6 record

Like that draft Crash, we obviously draft very similarly - Sankey, Thomas and Boykin in practically identical rounds!

I love Jimmy Graham this year and like him at 7.
