Best Pick - Mahomes (123rd overall, 13th round)

Worst Pick - Le'Veon Bell at 3rd overall

Best WW addition - Joe Mixon/Nick Chubb (tie) (honorable mentions: Kenny Golladay, Dalvin Cook, Robert Woods)

Worst drop decision - Phillip Lindsay or Tarik Cohen (weeks 3-4, Bell and Fournette not available, needed immediate starters)

Best Trade - Traded away Cooks for Julio Jones right before Jones started scoring TDs

Worst Trade - N/A (but no one would take Bell off my hands if that counts - hung onto him till November)

Looks like a 10 team league. In a 10-teamer, Mixon, Cook, nor Woods were drafted? And then you turned Cook into Julio??

Best Draft Pick: Greg Zuerlin in round 13 pick 156

 

Worst Draft Pick: Jimmy G round 9 pick 98 three picks ahead of Mahommes 

 

Keep 5 in this league and I’m only starting 4 players

I kept and 1 I drafted hence when zuerlin is the best draft pick he’s the only survivor 

 

Best WW Addition: Phillip Lindsay but a shout out to Humphries  and Chi D

 

Worst Drop Decision: dropped Samuels for Dixon last week I liked the potential of Bal schedule more 

 

Best Trade: My fourth round pick for Hilton 3 weeks ago giving me my second Keeper WR

 

Worst Trade: Lamar Miller and my 3rd for Devonta Freeman

Best Draft Pick - Mitch Trubisky at 133 in a 2QB league, patience paid off

Worst Draft Pick - Royce Freeman at 34 - even though I had already taken Saquon/McCaffrey.... my worst draft pick in any league/sport ever

Best WW Addition - James White in two leagues

Worst Drop Decision - No regrets

Best Trade - got James Connor for Marvin Jones at the start of the year

Worst Trade - basically gave away Leonard Fournette for David Njoku, was desperate at TE , now I'm facing Fournette in week 14 so Njoku better come through lol

BEST- Owning Jaylen Samuels week 14 in Yahoo league

 

WORST- Playing against Jaylen Samuels week 14 in Yahoo League

Best Pick - Waiting on TE and getting Njoku with the 151st pick

Worst Pick - Choosing Jordan Howard as an unexciting but "safe" pick with the 18th pick. 

Best WW Addition - Nick Chubb and Baker Mayfield 

Worst Drop Decision - Lamar Miller (though I dropped him for Chubb who I prefer, but even in a situation where I didn't have any easy drops I could have dropped someone worse than Miller), Jaylen Samuels in yahoo league who I held twice in case of Conner injury because of his TE eligibility than dropped for a roster move the week Conner got injured)

Best Trade - Only made one. Traded Jordan Howard for Jarvis Landry. Pretty lateral trade but has improved my roster by ditching an RB I was never starting for a WR who I can occasionally start.

Yes, a 10-teamer. There are a couple of inexperienced owners in the league who dropped Mixon and Cook due to injuries, and someone recently dropped Woods due to the Rams' bye week. (Crazy, right?) Actually, I'd have wound up keeping Lindsay if Mixon hadn't come along at that point (think it was week 4). I dropped him right after starting him in the game he got ejected - I was desperate for starters at RB and didn't know if he'd wind up getting suspended or benched, plus the platoon seemed very real then. Oh, well. I'm in the playoffs.

I'll give mine for my keeper league, the most important league to me. It's a 5-player keeper, so the draft positions will look weird :) 

 

Best Draft Pick: Tie. Chris Carson in Round 8. Haven't played him much, but he's been great insurance. Cam in Round 1 hasn't let me down.

Worst Draft Pick: Corey Davis in Round 2. Hurns in Round 14 didn't help me either, but it was 14.

Best WW Addition: Also tie. Grabbed Conner after the draft, grabbed Chubb after the Hyde trade.

Worst Drop Decision: That's been my saving grace this year--don't have a bad one. Last year was Kamara in Week 1 (hurricane scramble at QB). This year the best guy I've dropped has been Courtland Sutton.

Best Trade: No trades (yet) for me this year--having my best year in a while, haven't needed to.

Worst: Spencer Asiat-errr, Ware ... the new god of plod. 

 

disgusting. absolute trash. 

 

 

 

He’s had exactly one game back as a starter where he scored more fantasy points (as a waiver pickup) than David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon,  Gus Edwards and Alvin Kamara...

 

I swear the overreactions on this forum absolutely baffle me.

Draft was 8/18

 

Best Draft Pick: AP (rd 15) 

Worst Draft Pick: Hogan or Drake (rd 4 / rd 3) 

Best WW Addition: Bears D in the preseason 

Worst Drop Decision: Bears D Week 7 to pick up a generic hype WW add ..they were picked up immediately after waivers cleared

Best Trade: maybe the below counts as a b/e ? maybe dunno ..  

Worst Trade: drafted Connor after the Bell owner drafted Yeldon (my cuff)..convinced him Bell wasn't coming back (this was week 1 of preseason) so we made the trade day after the draft. I had to deal with "dur haa haa thanks man I woulda been F'd!" all year
