I used the words "Potential Suprises" because I hate when everyone calls someone a "sleeper pick". My team is Carl Sprackler (Greenskeeper from Caddyshack). Since the WCG league has 3 starting WR slots I went hot and heavy for that position as seen by my bench. I am a little weak on the rb side with Fred Jackson as my #2, but so be it. I like Nate Washington because Britt is always injured/in jail. Heyward-Bey had a nice season and hooked up nice with Palmer at the end of last season. Moss could have the Newton effect, just like Steve Smith last year, with RGIII tossing the rock around. I'd love some opinions on the picks.
This draft is a nice practice test before my big draft next Monday with all of my drunk acquaintances I call friends. I'd love this post to be a place for discussion on upcoming drafts. The league that I'm in for next week has 0.5 PPR, so that creates a new dynamic. My general rules this year were too stay away from WR with bad QBs, find backs that have their own niche (like Forte and Jackson), and to snag a few breakout candidates at the WR position in the late rounds. I'm hoping one of the Robinson, Heyward-Bey, or Moss picks pays off, but who knows.
Hope to hear from you all, thanks!
