FF2011: GWJFFLX organization thread

I can't believe I'm going to do this but I'm taking the Detroit Lions. And, I'm fine with email.

Detroit Lions
QB: Matthew Stafford
RB: Jahvid Best
RB: Jerome Harrison
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Nate Burleson
WR: Titus Young
TE: Brandon Pettigrew
FLEX: Tony Scheffler

Sorry, I got called away to lunch with the boss.

Team Maximus selects the New York Jets
QB: Mark Sanchez
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson
RB: Shonn Greene
WR: Plaxico Burress
WR: Santonio Holmes
WR: Derrick Mason
Flex: Joe McKnight
TE: Dustin Keller
K: Nick Folk
D: New York Jets

Let me have...
Dallas Cowboys
QB: Tony Romo
RB: Felix Jones
RB: Tashard Choice
WR: Miles Austin
WR: Dez Bryant
WR: Kevin Ogletree
FLEX: DeMarco Murray
TE: Jason Witten
K: David Buehler
D: Dallas

Taking a chance on the walking wounded. I'm already feeling the pinch of Miles Austin being out in two of the three leagues I'm in, might as well make it 3-of-4.

Also, I just had to do this, as it is the ultimate incarnation of the Damnsammit Stratagem.

Gnoooome, where are youuuuu?

Edit: Grump, are we allowed to take a backup QB on a team in our flex spot? I'm not saying we start a 2nd qb, but for the team draft purposes it should be fine since we will have more than enough players to fill every spot from taking 2 team's players, right?

I'd say that's not really in the spirit of the draft... but I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. Since 1) the draft isn't done and therefore I've not entered the rosters into ESPN, and 2) this is a "beta" league anyway, I'll allow it... and anyone who wants to edit their previous posts to do likewise is welcome to do so. I can't promise that I'll make the same allowance come next year (if this format returns, of course).

Green Bay Packers

QB: Aaron Rodgers
RB: Ryan Grant
RB: John Kuhn
WR: Greg Jennings
WR: Jordy Nelson
WR: James Jones
Flex: Scott Starks
TE: Jermichael Finley
K: Mason Crosby

Gah, formatting. Must have screwed up somehow when I copy/pasted from TextEdit.

Can we all just vote on what team to give LeapingGnome and move on?

An undersized nickel cornerback for the Jacksonville Jaguars (until he was released this offseason).

Probably not the Starks Phish intended.

For the record, I've emailed him and told him he could submit his pick by email.

Dudes, really? Last pick made at midnight, reasonable to expect the next pick to be made at the end of the next work day, plus I posted earlier I am traveling on business this week, can't exactly tell the client hang on, I need to make a fantasy pick. Sheesh!

With the 19th pick I select:
The Tennessee Titans

QB: Matt Hasselbeck
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: Javon Ringer
WR: Nate Washington
WR: Donny Avery
WR: Lavelle Hawkins
Flex: Damian Williams
TE: Jared Cook
K: Rob Bironas
D: Titans

It's HOMER time!

Jacksonville Jaguars
QB: Blaine Gabbert
RB: Maurice Jones-Drew
RB: Deji Karim
WR: Mike Thomas
WR: Jason Hill
WR: Cecil Shorts
TE: Marcedes Lewis
FLEX: Zach Miller
K: Josh Scobee
D: not much to speak of

Apparently, I'm double-dipping the AFC East this year.

Miami Dolphins
QB: Chad Henne
RB: Reggie Bush
RB: Daniel Thomas
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Brian Hartline
WR: Davone Bess
Flex: Steve Slaton
TE: Anthony Fasano
K: Dan Carpenter

When I was picking my teams, I was surprised at just how quickly the fantasy points that the various players for each team has drops off as you go down the depth chart.

1st RB - 20 pts per game average. 2nd RB - 4 pts per game average.

It will be interesting to see the scores in these games as compared to the scores in the various other leagues.

Isn't Slaton a Texan?

He was on Monday.
He was cut on Tuesday.
He became a Dolphin today.

I'm tempted to take the homer pick, but I think I'll go with...the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rosters to be selected tomorrow, honest.

I meant James Starks.
Scott Starks was a Badger.

I'll take the vikings solely for adrian peterson.

My pick should be in shortly.

You're lucky I can't take the Vikings because of the bye week or I would totally take them to spite you for picking out of turn.

St. Louis Rams
QB: Sam Bradford
RB: Cadillac Williams
RB: Steven Jackson
WR: Danny Amendola
WR: Brandon Gibson
WR: Mike Sims-Walker
TE: Lance Kendricks
FLEX: Danario Alexander

And I would have chosen the Rams if they didn't have the week 5 bye.
EDIT
Let me point out that I picked because our fearless leader sent me a message saying it was my turn.

Go back and re-read the email and post what the subject of it was.
