Early votes are in and Arian Foster is the current leader in the race for starting running back in the TBD TBD starting lineup for Week 4 in the NFL.
If you’d like to vote on that (other options include Marshawn Lynch, Todd Gurley and David Johnson) head on over to this link and find the schmancy/snazzy poll at the bottom.
This post, however, will be dedicated to trade targets. TBD TBD is dedicated to trade targets.
(I’m leaving most all of this up to you guys, even the team name. So long as it’s not vulgar or offensive, send me your suggestions on Twitter @BenRosener /@knowhitter272 or in the comments.)
With that in mind, here are some players that could make sense on the team. Vote and decide who you want TBD to try and acquire. If you want more info on the players, check out the bits below.
The Case for Melvin Gordon
Maybe a luxury given the team’s current personnel, but you can never have enough running backs. It would be a different story if Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch weren’t injury concerns, but here we sit. Additionally, Dion Lewis is in an offense that can be extremely fickle towards running backs. Another of the team’s backs, David Johnson, is low on the depth chart in Arizona while Todd Gurley is stuck in a time share.
Gordon hasn’t established himself as a pass catcher in San Diego’s offense yet, but he does seem to be ahead of the pack in terms of rushing. The rookie is extremely talented and could be in for a breakout if he receives the lion’s share of the snaps during passing and rushing downs.
The Case for Larry Fitzgerald
While Gordon is somewhat of a luxury, Fitzgerald is a definite need. Randall Cobb is a must-start every week, but outside of that there aren’t any other locks. John Brown could be in for a breakout here soon, and is clearly Arizona’s second receiver, but hasn’t put up the fantasy points many expected. He’s been respectable so far with 20 points in three games, but that isn’t going to cut it as a starting receiver. Adding Fitzgerald would allow Brown to be worked into the mix at the FLEX slot, where (given his current production) he is a much more appealing play. Did I mention Larry Fitzgerald has 333 yards and five touchdowns over his first three games? Yeah, guy’s pretty good.
The Case for C.J. Anderson
The ultimate low-buy candidate, Anderson has struggled out of the gate. The Denver Broncos’ running back has managed only 74 yards on 32 carries. He has six catches on ten targets for 30 yards. Anderson has zero touchdowns this season. There’s talk of him losing his starting place in the Denver offense, but personally I don’t buy it. Anderson has been banged up with injuries as of late. Once healthy, he should claim the majority of the touches. His production means he can be had for cheap.
The Case for Brandon Marshall
Very similar to Fitzgerald in the sense that TBD needs high-end receivers. Marshall has scored in all three games this season, while eclipsing 100 yards in each of the last two contests. Overall, he’s netted owners 42 points. Translation: He’s a lock for double digit fantasy points, especially when you consider that the Jets don’t have a ton of weapons. Marshall will continue to get looks in New York.
The Case for Tyler Eifert
Eifert seems to have established himself as a secondary target in a suddenly pass-happy Cincinnati offense. He’ll always play second-fiddle to A.J. Green, but that should be fine for fantasy owners as long as Eifert is a prominent pass-catching option in the Cincy aerial attack. He had zero catches last week, so now could be a time to buy low. Additionally, tight end is the weakest position on TBD TBD’s roster, so there is a definite need.
Here’s the team roster. Let me know who I should trade for any one of Gordon, Fitzgerald, Anderson, Marshall and/or Eifert.
(Note: At this point, Andrew Luck, Randle, Foster, Cobb, Lynch, Gurley and Brown are untouchable either because of production or potential. Everyone else is in play).
Ultimately, you decide what propositions I make, so put on your GM hat and send me your trade ideas on Twitter (@BenRosener / @knowhitter272) or in the comments.
The TBD TBD (you can still change the name if you want. Drop me a suggestion on Twitter @BenRosener or @knowhitter272 or in the comments, providing it’s not vulgar, spam or offensive) finally won a game! Week 3 around the NFL was kind to the TBDs as the team won 106-77. Despite underwhelming fantasy days from a number of starters, the team pulled through thanks to monster days from Joseph Randle and Randall Cobb. The duo combined for 55 points while Andrew Luck and Dion Lewis chipped in with 16 and 12 respectively.
While Week 3 was a solid result for the team, Week 4 is fast approaching. Lewis’s New England Patriots have a bye this week, so Lewis won’t start. The options are to slot Marshawn Lynch into the other running back slot and field a different FLEX, or start someone like Arian Foster, or another bench option in Lewis’ spot.
Should Foster start for his team, the Houston Texans, he would provide an appealing fantasy play this week against the Atlanta Falcons—the team that allowed Randle to run for 87 yards and three scores. Todd Gurley is another option to start. The rookie has massive potential, but could be stuck in a timeshare situation in St. Louis. Arizona’s David Johnson has been effective in limited touches for the Cardinals. Should he surpass Chris Johnson on the depth chart, he’ll have plenty of upside.

With news coming out of Detroit that Brad Ausmus will continue to manage the team next season, and thus keep his job, it’s now a time of evaluation for the Tigers as the team decides which non-core players to keep around next season.
With a number of starting players set in stone (Miguel Cabrera, Ian Kinsler, Justin Verlander, James McCann, etc.) the likely focus of the evaluation process will be positions where there is uncertainty. Naturally, the most uncertain area of the Tigers’ roster will be under close examination. That uncertain area? The bullpen. More specifically, the back end of the bullpen.
Alex Wilson has performed admirably for Detroit, pitching wherever he’s needed. The former Red Sox pitcher owns a 2.19 ERA in 70 innings and is one of the few relievers with job security heading into next season. However, Wilson’s ERA is nearly a run higher in save situations then it is in non-save situations. He’ll pitch effectively wherever the Tigers pitch him, but ideally the team would probably have Wilson throwing in the seventh or eighth inning in front of a lockdown closer.
Where that closer emerges from (free agency, trade, the minor league system, etc.) remains to be seen, but the Tigers have one building block in Wilson.
With so little certainty in the bullpen heading into next year, especially with Bruce Rondon being sent home early, now is the time for relievers not named Wilson to make their respective marks.
One reliever who could benefit greatly from Rondon’s absence is Neftali Feliz.
The former Texas Ranger still owns an unsightly 7.33 ERA for the Tigers, but a closer look at his numbers reveals a much better product. Feliz’ FIP, or of fielding independent pitching, is 3.78. Additionally, over his last 12 appearances (12.2 innings), the ex-Ranger has a 2.13 ERA and is holding batters to a .178 batting average. Over those innings, Feliz has struck out 11 batters while only walking one. Opposing hitters have managed a .457 OPS against the reliever.
Looking at those stats, Feliz clearly has the talent to be a significant contributor to the Detroit bullpen. He may even end up as closer. As of now, he has three saves in a Tigers’ uniform, two of which have come in the last two wins for the team. With Rondon no longer with the team for the duration of this season, Neftali Feliz has a chance to cement himself as a late-inning option for the Ausmus heading into next season.
Kam Chancellor ended his holdout and reported to the Seahawks Wednesday.
The Seattle Seahawks were evidently missing one of their leaders, especially on the field where the team allowed over 700 yards of offense (713) and 61 points (!) during the first two games of the NFL season.
So just what does Chancellor (re) add to the team upon his return?
First and foremost is his role as the “muscle,” for-lack-of-a-better-term, of the secondary. Chancellor is very much the enforcer to Earl Thomas’ centerfielder/last line of defense. DeShawn Shead and Dion Bailey (Chancellor’s temporary replacements) show promise, but neither of them can deliver a hit the way Kam Chancellor can.
Here’s Exhibit A:
And Exhibit B:
…And Exhibit C:
Also Exhibit D:
You can see why his nickname is “Bam Bam” (and not just because it rhymes with this first name).
Chancellor’s physical style of play not only meshes with everything the Seahawks do, it also helps the team in terms of intimidating opposing offenses. In a recent story by Michael Silver that ran on NFL.com, defensive end Cliff Avril said the follow about Chancellor, “’His presence, by itself, it puts a lot of fear in the receivers, and even the running backs.’”
It’s one thing to start a player who can make tackles and perform at a high level, it’s a completely different thing when a player actually inspires fear in opposing players. With that kind of a reputation, Chancellor could have a major impact on the game without making a single tackle. In other words, opposing players are fearful of going near Chancellor, they may avoid him for large chunks of the game. Not a bad card to have up your sleeve if you’re running a defense that strives to minimalize the number of big plays.
On top of all that, Chancellor is one of the leaders of the defense, not mention the team in general. Remember, during the Hawks’ offseason trip to Hawaii, it was largely thanks to Chancellor that some of the defensive players went in the first place.
Having all of those qualities in one player, and to have that player back is huge for the Seahawks. Chancellor will likely play on Sunday against the Bears, though how much remains to be seen. Regardless of his snap count on Sunday, expect him to play more, if not the whole game in Week Four.
Per your voting, Cardinals running back David Johnson has been added to the roster with Percy Harvin hitting the waiver wire to make room. Thank you for making that call. In retrospect, it looks like a smart move. Johnson may end up as Arizona’s lead back sooner rather than later, making him a player with a world of fantasy potential. Harvin has yet to establish himself as anything more than a fringe FLEX play.
In other roster news, Joseph Randle moves into one of the two running back slots, with Arian Foster (at least for now) moving into the FLEX spot. Foster is only there because he may not play this week. KPRC 2 News’ Randy Mcllvoy reports that Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said he isn’t sure about Foster this week.
With Foster potentially missing this week’s game, his FLEX spot becomes up for grabs. Obviously Martavis Bryant won’t be able to start given his suspension, but the spot is available to everyone else on the bench. Who should the team start in the FLEX spot for Week 3?
Should the team make any other lineup/roster changes? Let me know in the comment section or on Twitter @BenRosener, @knowhitter272 or @kingdomeSEA. Drop me a line if you think the team should be named something other than TBD TBD. As long as the suggestion isn’t vulgar/offensive/spam, all suggestions are welcomed.
Week 2 wasn’t TBD TBD’s best week. The team totaled 39 points and received underwhelming performances from fantasy stalwarts Andrew Luck, Marshawn Lynch and Adam Vinatieri. Randle Cobb was the only starter to make something happen points wise. In more troubling news, Zach Ertz and Andre Johnson continue to struggle. The only bench player who could’ve done the team any good was Donte Moncrief, who impressed with 18 points thanks to seven catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.
Changes are going to have to be made for the team to start winning games. I’ve already submitted a claims on a few players on waivers.
(Also, if you have any suggestions in terms of renaming TBD TBD, comment or hit me up on Twitter @BenRoseneror @knowhitter272provided they aren’t spam/vulgar/offensive.)
My fantasy football teams waiver claims Week 3.
Add Dion Lewis, NE RB
Drop Owen Daniels, DEN TE
Even with Arian Foster returning from injury soon, I’m a bit short on running backs. The Pats’ offense has looked prolific to start the year and Lewis has been a big part of it. Bill Belichick has a tendency to be fickle with his running back selection, so Lewis may have a down game or two, but he’ll play an integral role as the team’s receiving back out of the backfield.
Daniels hasn’t done much over the first two weeks, hauling in five catches for a combined 24 yards. That’s resulted in a singular fantasy point.
Add Eric Ebron, DET TE
Drop Sam Bradford, PHI QB
Ebron has scored in consecutive weeks while catching four passes for 53 yards in Week One and five balls for 43 yards in Week Two. Ertz has struggled, so Ebron will likely slot into the lineup once he’s claimed on waivers.
Week 3 Lineup
My Fantasy Football team Week 3 Starting Lineup
Since I’m dropping Bradford, Luck is my only option at QB. I’m betting he’ll bounce back against Tennessee.
Running back wise, it looks like my gamble on Foster could begin to pay off. Lynch and Randle also provide TBD with potentially three top running back options this week. Should Foster be unable to play this weekend, Randle would take his spot next to Lynch, and the FLEX position immediately becomes open for consideration.
I’m going to start Cobb pretty much every week given his status as Aaron Rodgers’ number one target. John Brown on the other hand, seems to have established himself as the number two receiver in Arizona. That means lots of targets from Carson Palmer.
Ertz is here for now, but Ebron will soon take his spot.
Houston face Tampa Bay in Week three, so there’s some potential there facing a rookie QB (even one names Jameis Winston).
Indy is bound to bounce back offensively, which means more kicking opportunities for Vinatieri.
Do you agree with my lineup changes? What changes would you make?
Your Opinion: Roster Moves?
Should I drop Vinatieri? What about Harvin and Bryant?
Because of TBD’s 0-2 record, I’m at the top of the waiver order, so I have top priority in terms of acquiring a player.
Going on this, Robbie Gould is available. He’s fantasy’s best kicker this season while Vinatieri may be one of the worst (statistically speaking). Should I drop Vinatieri for Gould?
Harvin struggled last week, is he worth a roster spot? What about Bryant? Is it worth keeping him around while he’s suspended, or should I give his spot to a player producing this season like Travis Benjamin, Allen Robinson or Cardinals running back David Johnson?
Should I drop anyone?
Should I add anyone?
Be sure to voice your opinion. Vote in one of the polls, send me a Tweet @BenRosener or @knowhitter272 or comment below. I want to hear from you!
The Detroit Tigers season is in shambles. Stop me if you’ve hear that before. Due to injuries and inconsistency, the team has struggled. There’s truth to the statement that the Tigers never really got a chance to see what a fully healthy version of their roster could do.
After a myriad of player absences and bad breaks, the Tigers begin the week at 69-79. Only the Athletics own a worst record in the American League, while Detroit sits above six different National League teams in terms of owning the worst record in baseball.
The season isn’t what anyone (pundit, player, fan or coach) would have expected, but here we sit.
Despite the struggles, there are a few positives to be had. The Tigers now have the opportunity to let players like Steven Moya, Dixon Machado, Jefry Marte, Matt Boyd, Drew VerHagen and Bruce Rondon get their respective feet wet in the Majors, so all of them are more prepared for 2016 when Detroit will once again push for a World Series title.
What is likely more valuable is the Tigers ability to secure protected, first-round draft pick. This would allow Detroit shop freely in the free agent market without the fear of losing the team’s highest draft pick.
Al Avila’s squad needs to improve as quickly as possible, and the quickest way to do that is through free agency. A number of big-name, potential free agents could be fits in Detroit, like Zack Greinke, Jason Heyward, Jordan Zimmerman or Alex Gordon. Any would greatly improve the Tigers and better position them to chase a title in 2016.
While the Tigers need to win now, they also need to build for the future at the same time so another season like this one doesn’t happen. It’s a tough balancing act, but it’s completely doable—just look at the Cardinals.
Outside of Daniel Norris and Michael Fulmer, there isn’t much in terms of potentially elite starting pitching—something the Tigers are, quite frankly, used to. Boyd and Luis Cessa show promise as back-end of the rotation starters, but neither are closed being finished products. Joe Jimenez has the look of a potentially elite reliever, but he may be a few years away. Outside of those players, there isn’t too much at this point. Buck Farmer ranked as one of the team’s top prospects, but he’s yet to post a Major League win and owns an 8.49 ERA and a 6.79 FIP in 46.2 innings pitched.
Position player-wise, Moya is the crème of the crop. He may turn into the next Adam Dunn (albeit a somewhat faster one), or he could turn into the next Mark Reynolds, but in the outfield. Fellow outfielders Christian Stewart and Derek Hill show promise, but are both years away. JaCoby Jones is a high-risk, high-reward prospect, but even if he does live up to his excellent potential, he is a season (at best) from reaching the big leagues. The point here is that there isn’t a whole lot of certainty in the terms of what young talent Tigers have coming over the next few years.
By securing a protected first round pick (that comes in the top ten), Detroit can not only spend in free agency, but also secure a future star/impact player to carry the team into the future. Simply put, it’s a win-win.
I’m going to try something a little different in this space. Normally I’ve posted analysis pieces, YouTube videos and snippets from Vine. I’m going to switch things up. Don’t worry, I’ll still keep the pieces/videos/Vines coming, but I’m going to write about my fantasy football team. I’m going to draft a team in an ESPN draft room in a 10-team league and provide weekly looks at the team. These updates will include roster decisions, starting lineup choices, etc. It’s my hope that some of these decisions help you in some way with your fantasy team, or just provide an entertaining read.
I’d also like to evolve you, the reader/football fan. Until further notice, my team will be called the TBD TBD. I want you all to pick the name, so leave suggestions in the comments—you know, providing the names aren’t spam/vulgar/offensive.
Additionally, I want your input on roster decisions throughout the season, so I’ll be posting polls and asking you to comment in the comment section with your suggestions and opinions. If you don’t feel like responding to any of these methods, give me a shout on Twitter at any one of these accounts with your lineup/roster advices: @BenRosener, @knowhitter272, @kingdomeSEA.
So, without further ado, here are my draft results.
(Note: I was out of the office during Week one, so everything will start from Week 2. Also this is a real draft on ESPN.com.).
First Impressions/Pre-Draft Strategy
I lucked out and received a high draft pick. I’ll be picking third overall.
(Another note, I’ll have to change my name after the draft. It’s “Team Ben” for now simply because of default. I’ll change it right after the draft.)
RB Le’Veon Bell Pit
RB Jamaal Charles KC
As you can see, I like running backs, my draft strategy is to hoard as many top running backs as possible. I go with Marshawn Lynch with my first pick. The logic is pretty simple, Seattle’s offense is run-dominant and Pete Carroll and company will feed ‘Beast Mode’ the ball until the cows come home. My hope is that I can snag another elite RB in the second round.
RB Marshawn Lynch Sea
RB Adrian Peterson Min
RB Matt Forte Chi
TE Rob Gronkowski NE
RB Eddie Lacy GB
WR Antonio Brown Pit
RB Jeremy Hill Cin
QB Aaron Rodgers GB
Mid-Round 1 Update
After taking Lynch, I see a number of players I wanted to fall to me get taken. These include Matt Forte, Rob Gronkowski, Jeremy Hill and Aaron Rodgers.
RB LeSean McCoy Buf
WR Julio Jones Atl
RB DeMarco Murray Phi
WR Demaryius Thomas Den
RB C.J. Anderson Den
WR Emmanuel Sanders Den
WR Dez Bryant Dal
Second Round Pick
I’d like to hoard running backs, but with the top back on the board being Mark Ingram, I need a quarterback. I take Andrew Luck.
QB Andrew Luck Ind
WR DeAndre Hopkins Hou
WR Odell Beckham Jr. NYG
WR Calvin Johnson Det
RB Carlos Hyde SF
Third Round Pick
I’ve got a number of receivers available to me with the third pick in the third round, including A.J. Green,Randall Cobb, Alshon Jeffrey, T.Y. Hilton and Mike Evans. I go with Cobb. Top wide out in a top offense, no brainer. Hilton was my second choice, but with Jordy Nelson missing the year due to injury in Green Bay, Rodgers is going to lean on Cobb a lot.
I’m looking at Joseph Randle, Jimmy Graham, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore and Russell Wilson with my next pick.
WR Randall Cobb GB
WR A.J. Green Cin
WR Brandin Cooks NO
WR Alshon Jeffery Chi
RB Mark Ingram NO
RB Alfred Morris Wsh
WR Mike Evans TB
WR T.Y. Hilton Ind
RB Lamar Miller Mia
QB Drew Brees NO
WR Keenan Allen SD
QB Peyton Manning Den
WR Jordan Matthews Phi
QB Tom Brady NE
TE Jimmy Graham Sea
Fourth Round Pick
Graham goes the pick before. I need another running back so I go with Randle. He’s going to dominate behind Dallas’ offensive line.
RB Joseph Randle Dal
QB Ben Roethlisberger Pit
RB Justin Forsett Bal
QB Russell Wilson Sea
WR Jarvis Landry Mia
Fifth Round Pick
Arian Foster is going to be a top-five running back once he’s healthy—and that will sooner rather than later. Another no brainer. Having Lynch and Randle affords me the opportunity to stash Randle on my bench until he’s healthy. Johnson, Todd Gurley, Gore, Davante Adams and Ameer Abdullah are next on my list. Abdullah gets taken just as I write this. I’ll try and trade for him after the draft or during the season.
RB Arian Foster Hou
RB Melvin Gordon SD
RB DeAngelo Williams Pit
RB Jonathan Stewart Car
RB Ameer Abdullah Det
WR Julian Edelman NE
RB Frank Gore Ind
WR Davante Adams GB
Fifth Round Update
There goes Gore as well. He has the potential to be a touchdown machine in Indy. He isn’t going to run for 1,500 yards, but in an Andrew Luck-led offense, he’s got huge potential. Adams goes right after Gore. I’ll try trading for them along with Abdullah.
TE Jason Witten Dal
TE Travis Kelce KC
WR Brandon Marshall NYJ
D/ST Broncos D/ST Den
WR Vincent Jackson TB
TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins TB
WR DeSean Jackson Wsh
Sixth Round Pick
Todd Gurley is the best player available and atop my list. It’s risky taking two injured running backs, but Gurley has massive potential, especially on a St. Louis team who will rely on the run.
RB Todd Gurley StL
TE Martellus Bennett Chi
RB Joique Bell Det
TE Greg Olsen Car
WR Kendall Wright Ten
Seventh Round Pick
It’s a tough call here between Johnson, Sammy Watkins and Amari Cooper, but with Hilton out, Luck is going to have to rely on Andre Johnson. It doesn’t hurt that the former Texan had ten targets in Week One. Even with Hilton healthy, Johnson has the potential to haul in double-digit touchdowns. He’s essentially a receiving version of Gore in terms of value. Lot’s of TDs, not a ton of yards.
WR Andre Johnson Ind
WR Amari Cooper Oak
WR Danny Amendola NE
RB Latavius Murray Oak
RB LeGarrette Blount NE
RB Chris Ivory NYJ
D/ST Seahawks D/ST Sea
WR Sammy Watkins Buf
D/ST Titans D/ST Ten
RB Bishop Sankey Ten
RB Giovani Bernard Cin
WR James Jones GB
WR Golden Tate Det
D/ST Bills D/ST Buf
RB Andre Ellington Ari
Eighth Round Pick
I need a defense here. J.J. Watt and the Texans D is the pick. I don’t love some of the options at this point to I feel fine reaching for a defense.
D/ST Texans D/ST Hou
D/ST Rams D/ST StL
RB T.J. Yeldon Jac
WR Jeremy Maclin KC
K Matt Prater Det
Ninth Round Pick
Cardinals receiver John Brown is the pick here. Carson Palmer is going to throw a lot in the desert and Brown will be on the receiving end of a high-volume of those throws. He’s got breakout written all over him.
WR John Brown Ari
WR Mike Wallace Min
K Matt Bryant Atl
QB Matt Ryan Atl
K Brandon McManus Den
QB Tony Romo Dal
RB Rashad Jennings NYG
RB C.J. Spiller NO
RB Isaiah Crowell Cle
WR Allen Robinson Jac
TE Jordan Cameron Mia
WR Larry Fitzgerald Ari
WR Eric Decker NYJ
K Stephen Gostkowski NE
WR Nelson Agholor Phi
Ninth Round Update
People are starting to take kickers. Think I’ll wait on that.
Tenth Round Pick
Martavis Bryant is the pick here. Another stash player (given his suspension), but one with high upside and value relative to the draft spot.
WR Martavis Bryant Pit
QB Carson Palmer Ari
WR Charles Johnson Min
RB Ryan Mathews Phi
RB Danny Woodhead SD
Eleventh Round Pick
I need a tight end. Zach Ertz has the chance to shine in Philly’s offense.
TE Zach Ertz Phi
WR Torrey Smith SF
QB Cam Newton Car
WR Michael Floyd Ari
WR Roddy White Atl
RB Darren McFadden Dal
WR Steve Smith Sr. Bal
RB Tre Mason StL
RB Doug Martin TB
K Steven Hauschka Sea
TE Delanie Walker Ten
WR Terrance Williams Dal
RB Shane Vereen NYG
D/ST Jets D/ST NYJ
RB Tevin Coleman Atl
Eleventh Round Update
I don’t love a lot of the options left at this point. I’ll be going for upside/lottery tickets with the rest of my picks.
Twelfth Round Pick
Donte Moncrief. Someone besides T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson are going to catch passes in Indianapolis. Moncrief has chance to be successful.
WR Donte Moncrief Ind
D/ST Dolphins D/ST Mia
WR Marques Colston NO
RB Devonta Freeman Atl
D/ST Ravens D/ST Bal
Thirteenth Round Pick
I really like the Colts offense. They’re going to score points in boatloads. That’s why I’m taking the team’s kicker, Adam Vinatieri.
K Adam Vinatieri Ind
RB Duke Johnson Jr. Cle
TE Dwayne Allen Ind
RB Andre Williams NYG
TE Tyler Eifert Cin
QB Marcus Mariota Ten
QB Tyrod Taylor Buf
RB Alfred Blue Hou
WR Anquan Boldin SF
D/ST Cardinals D/ST Ari
QB Philip Rivers SD
D/ST Chiefs D/ST KC
RB Charles Sims TB
K Justin Tucker Bal
QB Ryan Tannehill Mia
Fourteenth Round Pick
Another lottery ticket. Percy Harvin is the pick.
WR Percy Harvin Buf
WR DeVante Parker Mia
RB Knile Davis KC
D/ST Lions D/ST Det
WR Pierre Garcon Wsh
Fifteenth Round Pick
I need a backup QB. I’ll take Sam Bradford. Something tells me he’ll do well in the Eagles’ offense. He’s much better than a number of the quarterbacks Philly has trotted out.
QB Sam Bradford Phi
K Cody Parkey Phi
D/ST Eagles D/ST Phi
K Dan Bailey Dal
QB Matthew Stafford Det
K Dan Carpenter Buf
TE Antonio Gates SD
WR Devin Funchess Car
K Mason Crosby GB
K Blair Walsh Min
D/ST Vikings D/ST Min
TE Ladarius Green SD
D/ST Patriots D/ST NE
RB Toby Gerhart Jac
D/ST Packers D/ST GB
Sixteenth Round Pick
Owen Daniels. Known fact: Peyton Manning likes throwing to his tight ends.
TE Owen Daniels Den
TE Kyle Rudolph Min
K Phil Dawson SF
Just to recap, here is my starting lineup and bench. (Note, because of the draft’s time, I was unable to make changes to my team, hence Gurley being in the lineup even though he is out).
