Not sure if I'm reading a post or any eye chart but I won't touch any of those guys unless I'm playing in a deep (14-team+) league

Tony Gonzalez has been a good endgame pick for me, and I've been taking Clinton Portis the round earlier. Can't believe people are sleeping on these guys.

Cam Newton is going 91st overall right now. I know QB is a rich position but he's finished top 5 his entire career if I'm not mistaken, and Benjamin is probably an upgrade over what Smith was last season, I don't think the dropoff will be near as significant as the fantasy community thinks it will be.

Also I know he's a Raider now but if James Jones is going 174th overall in my leagues, I'll probably own him in every one of them.

Amendola is intriguing in the 9th round and for some reason I have a gut feeling MJD will surprise, at least in PPR anyway, there won't be many TDs obviously.

Colston, Roddy, Cruz, Torrey. I think all will outperform ADP's.

Kenny Britt.


The guy that's always finally fully healed and ready to damage at the start of every season? I wonder if he comes out and makes the same comment again this year.... oh wait...

Kenny Britt says he's finally fully recovered both physically and mentally from his 2011 ACL tear.

Britt was on his way to NFL superstar status when he blew out his knee three weeks into the 2011 season. He should have been back to 100 percent by 2013 at the absolute latest, but a well-chronicled lack of maturity likely contributed to his slow progress. Still just 25 and now reunited with Jeff Fisher, Britt is having a monster training camp and is penned in as the Rams' No. 1 receiver. His ADP has crept into the 11th round. Aug 13 - 8:31 AM


Maybe this time it's real. I'm just ribbing you though, if he can be 75% of the man he was in 2011 for that brief period in time, his ADP asking price will be returned in gold.

Heath Miller drafted in the 4th-5th rounds? I don't think I've even seen drafted in some of the mocks I've done.

I think he is talking about Lamar Miller. If Lamar Miller is being drafted in the 3rd round of a shallow league(10-12 teams) then you are playing with idiots. This is coming from a Miller supporter

QB - Jay Cutler, Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Cam Newton
RB - I'm liking where Vereen keeps falling in PPR formats. He's the only Pats RB I'm willing to gamble on, and I like the price & upside. I also think Rashad Jennings is a really unsexy pick but has a lot of value at the end of RB2 territory.
WR - Roddy White, Cruz, and a couple weeks ago I would have said Cooks & Benjamin but they are starting to shoot up draft boards, so . . . frack. Michael Floyd
TE - Pitta, Zach Ertz, Travis Kelce (DEEP sleeper!), Ladarius Green

12 team 0.5 PPR, auction, 3 keepers (traded away; received in trade)
QB: Matt Ryan ($3), Tom Brady ($6)
RB: Ellington ($20), Vereen ($9), Doug Martin, R. Jennings ($20), Gerhart ($11), Pierre Thomas ($7), Isiah Crowell
WR: Antonio Brown ($41), Roddy White ($19), M. Floyd ($12), Cruz ($22), Torrey Smith ($9)
TE: Jordan Cameron ($7), Zach Ertz

8 team 0.5 PPR, snake
QB: Peyton Manning (8th), Jay Cutler (88th)
RB: Bernard (19th), Ellington (35th), Vereen (56th), Jennings (57th), Pierre Thomas (72nd)
WR: AJ Green (14th), Antonio Brown (25th), Roddy White (41st), Josh Gordon (105th), B. Cooks, S. Smith Sr.
TE: Zach Ertz (104th)

12 team 0.5 PPR, snake (traded away; received in trade)
QB: Jay Cutler (113th), Tom Brady (89th)
RB: Gio Bernard (17th), Ellington (32nd), Vereen, Pierre Thomas (80th), Lacy (8th)Taliaferro
WR: Roddy White (41st), M. Floyd (56th), C. Patterson (65th), Josh Gordon
TE: Julius Thomas, Zach Ertz (152nd), Travis Kelce, Rudolph (137th)

In ppr formats I echo your sentiments on Vereen and Jennings. Jennings has always had good hands and the Giants have installed a short passing game.

He went in the 3rd in one of Roto's mocks, so I agree.

I did the same thing when I read that. HEATH MILLER?!?! Took me a few seconds to realize there was another Miller on that list.
I have 2 warning points. How many until I get a prize?
