My thoughts on Perriman and Wallace picks, they are nice selections and I considered them too. But, if Decker (and maybe ?) goes to Baltimore, their value plumets IMO. Almost took Perriman for his upside, but that is such a WR clusterf_ck in Baltimore.

I don't understand the commitment in cases like this. Anyone can make a mistake and draft someone taken. It takes special lack of commitment to miss an entire day, and then have this happen. Spence Toons is here a lot. I say turn over the keys.

You talking about Zero?

It has been more than 2 hours, pick for him and move on. He obviously wanted a QB so take the next QB on the ADP for him.

yep!

Nothing personal at all towards him, but I was surprised he was let in with him being so new. Unless he's a vet using a different handle. Part of why this draft runs so smoothly is because it's all vets that everyone knows well.

 

That being said, we made pretty decent headway and should finish up by Wednesday.

Little early for Wentz, but QB2s with upside are going fast, and I don't know if any would have been left at my 11th.

 

Should have taken Stafford with my 9th, and a WR in the 10th.

Joe has done well overall. A couple of rounds where was MIA, but other than that, timely and solid. I don't have any problem with him :thumbsup:

Jordy in the 2nd, Cobb in the 6th, and Snead (Cooks gone) in the 8th jump out at me. Also like Kelce in the 4th, Reed in the 5th, Wilson in the 7th, and Stafford in the 10th.

 

My favorite picks for my squad are Crabs in the 5th, and Dak late 8. Would redo the Lacy pick in the 5th.

I may have picked Joe Williams too early, but maybe the risk will pay off... or maybe all the news is hype to get Hyde going.

 

I think I picked Ajayi too early last year and it kind of paid off

I wanted Wentz in this round. I am an Eagles homer, and feel he has the weapons to be top 5-7 this year.

Nice pick on Hill.

 

I think Mixon is destined for the starting role, but Hill likely will start at the beginning, and should maintain a presence throughout the season.

10.10 - Tyrell Williams

 

I was looking at him in round 7 when I ended up taking Gore, then grabbed the Back up Qb and starting TE in rounds 8 and 9. Tyrell was the #13 Wr overall last year with 1075 yards and 7 TD's. He was targeted 119 times (26th overall), and he produced for Rivers with Allen out again. He's 6'4" tall, strong, and very quick and avg. close to 16 ypc. They drafted a rookie Wr, Mike Williams, and he's had a setback. (Herniated Disk) He should be ready for camp though, but he missed all organized offseason activity. I don't see him affecting Ty much this season and feel he was drafted to cover their arse on Keenan whose missed two straight seasons.

I project 75 catches for 1175 yards and 7-8 Td's. He has a pair of TE's who also get redzone looks. Very happy to land him here.

I'm going to get roasted for my QBs. I did this a few years ago and wasn't thrilled but I think the results turned out alright, can't recall. But full dsclosure I was hoping to pair 2 of Eli, Stafford and Wentz. I think to wait as long as I did means I need to be drafting at the back end for the 9-10 turn

I had him targeted since I picked back in Round 9. Sniped.. Damnit!

I totally agree. I was all over this guy and almost took him in the past couple of rounds. I was hoping that people were downgrading him due to the rookie. I honestly don't think that you can expect anything from Mike Williams with any certainty. He is going to miss so much valuable practice time that I would guess that any expectation of great things would be hard to imagine. Performing in the NFL is hard enough when you what you are doing, nevermind when everything is new. I think that the stats that Tyrell Williams put up last year are the floor for what he will do this year.

Palmer and Taylor

 

After Dak went, My QB's were Stafford, Eli, Wentz, Palmer, Taylor in that order. Should I have grabbed my first QB sooner? maybe, but I never felt the value was there. Had I been on the back end turns I likely would own Dak + Stafford and like my QB situation more.

 

Still, Palmer has plenty of weapons and plays in a pass heavy offense. Health will be a concern. The decision to take Taylor immediately after was made mostly in order to pair the immobile Palmer with the rushing TD threat of Taylor. Maybe buffalo will add Maclin or Decker to the fold.

 

When these rosters get posted on the main bored or when fumble does his analysis, I expect to receive poor marks for my QB's... BUT... most of you guys know I always wait on QB and even though this mock is a resource for FFT readers, its hard not to draft with the best ball format in mind which I believe lends itself even more to waiting on a very deep position. Not that you want to exactly wait as long as I did this year but when you get to cherry pick the best QB score on a week to week basis, it is entirely conceivable that their combined best weeks could end up as a top 5 QB.

Thank you Fumble for defending my honor!

 

I have been extremely busy, and was starting a 6 person interview before I submitted my Dalton selection.

 

I am going for two different positions so it's been stressful.

I think you came out okay.

And shovel... you're a hater.

 

Helped out for selecting Stafford? If I knew Dalton was taken before I walked into my interview, Stafford was the next choice. Let's not get silly....

The hater comment should've been towards remote controller. Apologies as I read the thread wrong. Trying to catch up to this while also staying on the picks thread is a part time job.
