My Teams (2013)

Team 1: Lucky Staff Infection
With randoms. 10 team league, ESPN standard scoring. 7th overall pick. 
Draft grade: A+.
Instead of a flex position, it is a RB/WR position AND a OP (offensive player) position. That means you can start TWO quarterbacks in this league. And I killed it. Everything went right here. Deep running backs. Two top 12 quarterbacks. Game over.

QBs (can start 2): Matt Stafford, Andrew Luck, Michael Vick. A
RBs: Doug Martin, LeSean McCoy, Maurice Jones-Drew, Daryl Richardson. A+
WRs: Randall Cobb, Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, Josh Gordon, Rueben Randle. B+
TEs: Owen Daniels, Martellus Bennett. B+
D/ST: Bengals. A-
K: Phil Dawson. N/A

Team 2: Gimme Dat
With randoms. 10 team league, ESPN standard. 3rd overall pick.
Now this is a draft that I killed. I was precisely the last one to take a quarterback. I just barely snagged Romo as people were taking their backups. Side note: The Aaron Rodgers owner took Colin Kaepernick in the fifth round! WHY!!!??? WHY!!?? *Sigh* I've got a top three running back, a top five wide receiver, and the biggest positional advantage in the game with Gronk. I even unwisely splurged on defenses but at least solid depth elsewhere can justify that decision. Throw in Percy Harvin and maybe I can get 4-8 games out of him.

QB: Tony Romo. B+
RBs: Arian Foster, Stevan Ridley, Lamar Miller, Le'Veon Bell, Giovani Bernard. A
WRs: Julio Jones, Reggie Wayne, Steve Johnson, Miles Austin, Percy Harvin. B
TEs: Rob Gronkowski, Jermichael Finley. A+
D/ST: Steelers, Bengals. A
K: David Akers. N/A

Team 3: Beast Mode
With friends. 10 team keeper league, standard (6pt/pass td). Last pick.
Draft grade: B.
A tough keeper decision as I had to choose two from LeSean McCoy, Doug Martin, Matt Forte, Drew Brees, and Julio Jones. I kept McCoy and Martin thinking McCoy will bounce back and that two good running backs will do wonders in a slim running back pool. I made a gutsy pick taking Cobb over Andre Johnson and Vincent Jackson but think it will pay off.
QB: Tony Romo. B+
RBs: Doug Martin, LeSean McCoy, Lamar Miller, Le'Veon Bell, Ben Tate. A-
WRs: Demaryius Thomas, Randall Cobb, Pierre Garcon, T.Y. Hilton, Miles Austin, Percy Harvin. A
TEs: Martellus Bennett, Tyler Eifert. B-
D/ST: Patriots, Packers. B
K: Sebastian Janokowski. N/A

Team 4: Jackson and Jackson. 
With randoms. 10 team league, ESPN standard. 10th overall pick.
This was one of the most messed up drafts I've seen. Calvin Johnson 2nd, Aaron Rodgers 5th, Drew Brees 4th, kickers taken way too early, people taking backup defenses, and people drafting backups for 1st round picks Brees and Rodgers. So many fantasy draft taboos happened that it isn't even funny. And it threw me through a loop. This draft had lots of potential but I wasted it. There's great RB depth, plenty of number three receivers, and no defense.
RBs: C.J. Spiller, Trent Richardson, David Wilson, Chris Ivory, Lamar Miller. A-
WRs: Vincent Jackson, DeSean Jackson, T.Y. Hilton, Tavon Austin, Josh Gordon, Michael Floyd. C+
TEs: Owen Daniels, Jermichael Finley. B-
D/ST: Cardinals. D
K: Justin Tucker. N/A

Team 5: Beast Mode.
With writers. 12 team league, NFL standard. 8th overall pick.
Autopick draft grade: A-
Autopick did me well. I am thin at running back but have the best wide receiver corps and am set at quarterback. Autpick did screw me over by taking a defense and a kicker before the tenth round but I got good starters at least. Depth is the issue here. 
QBs: RGIII, Ben Roethlisberger. A
RBs: LeSean McCoy, Montee Ball, Bryce Brown, Zac Stacy, Ryan Williams. C+
WRs: A.J. Green, Roddy White, Marques Colston, Brandon LaFell, Kendall Wright. A+
TE: Greg Olsen. B
D/ST: 49ers. A
K: Blair Walsh. N/A

Team 6: Stacked Attack. (League Deactivated)
With randoms. 8 team league. NFL standard. 8th overall pick.
Draft grade: A++
Maybe the best team I've seen (keep in mind it is an 8 team league).
QB: Matt Ryan. A-
RBs: Doug Martin, C.J. Spiller, Stevan Ridley, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews. A++
WRs: Demaryius Thomas, Marques Colston, Danny Amendola, Pierre Garcon, Mike Wallace. A++
TEs: Rob Gronkowski, Jermichael Finley. A++
D/ST: Ravens. B
K: N/A

Team 7: Wide Out
With randoms. 10 team league. NFL standard scoring with 1 qb, 2 rbs, 3 wrs, 1 te, 1 rb/wr, 8 bench. 7th overall pick.
Draft grade: B+
This would be an A+ if I didn't blow it for a number two running back. Other than that, this team is deep.
QB: Cam Newton. B+
RBs: C.J. Spiller, Eddie Lacy, Giovani Bernard, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, Ronnie Hillman. B-
WRs: Brandon Marshall, Vincent Jackson, Marques Colston, Cecil Shorts, Josh Gordon. A+
TEs: Jason Witten, Owen Daniels. A
D/ST: Ravens, Packers. B+
K: Josh Brown. N/A

Team 8: Championship Belts
With friends. 8 team league. 4 player keeper PPR scoring. 5th pick.
Draft grade: A-
For a PPR league, this team is stacked. I have three running backs that could all be in the top 10 because of their catching abilities.
QBs: Matt Stafford, Tony Romo. A-
RBs: LeSean McCoy, Jamal Charles, Reggie Bush, Ryan Mathews, Daryl Richardson, Bryce Brown. A
WRs: Roddy White, Wes Welker, Dwayne Bowe, Miles Austin, Vincent Brown. B+
TE: Jimmy Graham. A+
D/ST: Broncos. A
K: Steven Gostowski. N/A

Team 9: Victorious Secret
With friends. 10 team league. 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 RB, 2 FLEX. 3rd pick.
Draft grade: A
I went four straight running backs to start and then got RGIII in the sixth and Gronk in the seventh. Absolute steals. Championship coming.
QBs: RGIII, Joe Flacco, Brandon Weeden. B+
RBs: Marshawn Lynch, Steven Jackson, Maurice Jones-Drew, Frank Gore. A+
WRs: Marques Colston, Mike Wallace, Steve Johnson, Josh Gordon, Vincent Brown, Kenbrell Thompkins, Jacoby Jones. B-
TEs: Rob Gronkowski, Zach Sudfield. A+
D/ST: Steelers, Packers. B
K: David Akers. N/A

Team 10: PPR Monsters
With friends. 10 team league. PPR scoring. 3rd pick.
Draft grade: A-
I took some risks in this league. Bush and Sproles are catching machines but injury-prone. Will it pan out?
QB: Matt Ryan. A-
RBs: Doug Martin, Darren Sproles, Reggie Bush, Shane Vereen, Ronnie Hillman. A-
WRs: Reggie Wayne, Marques Colston, Jordy Nelson, Torrey Smith, Miles Austin, Kenbrell Thompkins. B+
TEs: Jermichael Finley, Zach Sudfield. B-
D/ST: 49ers. A
K: Sebastian Janokowski. N/A

Team 11: Pickett Fences Suck
With friends from dorm floor. ESPN standard. 1st pick.
Draft grade: A-
It was tough to concentrate in a live draft where I had to write all the picks on the board. My running back depth is iffy but a complete, solid team here.
QB: Matt Ryan. A-
RBs: Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Ryan Mathews, Giovani Bernard, Rashard Mendenhall, Le'Veon Bell. A-
WRs: Dez Bryant, Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, Danny Amendola, Steve Johnson. A+

D/ST: Broncos. B
K: Phil Dawson. N/A
