How Many Players From Your Draft Do You Still Own?

141 posts in this topic

I'd like to believe the draft is won in the later rounds. When I strike gold there--good things happen. This year has been crazy though. Looking back upon my draft results...I realized it's only week 7 and I have cut every player except one from round 8-17 in my 10-Team league!

This is very abnormal for me. I guess its a combination of poor picks, bad luck and surprising waiver wire additions.

Just wondering if anybody else remained in their League's hunt despite cutting a ton of players. How many? How did you remain competitive?

Pouring out Liquor for:

1. Ahmad Bradshaw (8th)

2. Mike Williams (9th)

3. Rashard Mendenhall (10th)

4. Jared Cook (11th)

5. Kenbrell Thompkins (12th) Still on the Roster

6. St. Louis Defense (13th)

7. Pierre Thomas (14th)

8. Deandre Hopkins (15th)

9. Jacquizz Rodgers (16th)

10.David Akers (17th)

Not too many. Mendenhall, BJGE, David Wilson, Flacco... I actually drafted Michael Crabtree before I was able to do any research. Ugh.

The last year's champion in my league had half his eventual starters who werent drafted. It depends on who you were able to pickup.

Deep League so take it with a gain of salt...

Only Two:

- Felix Jones - - dropped at some point for Charles Clay - - > traded straight up for Chris Ivory

- Jake Locker - - last pick of the draft - - Geno Smith now has that roster spot

Everyone else is still on my squad.

Didn't draft him but picked up Moreno before games started.. dropped him for a replacement defense for week 1 Ravens because he looked like a timeshare in game 1... regretting that one right about now.

I've only cut:

Vereen 4th round

McCluster 9th round

and will cut Golden Tate 7th round this week as I have Percy Harvin defrosting on my bench.

In full disclosure I also own several players that I hate too much to cut.

Cut Kenbrell Thompkins and Vincent Brown. The first one kind of hurts and I think the second one may hurt soon. I could pick VB back up as free agent today I suppose.

One thing I will keep in mind for future drafts is that great players can often be scooped up after the draft but before the season starts.
