    14 team leagues are harsh. Waht format is it: 3wrs? one rb/WR..etc?

    You only have 3 players that I would like to have starting on my team...but then again, I'm not in any 14 team leagues so it's tough to judge. Also, it's hard to say how your draft went without seeing the other picks--ie, who did you pass up to take Graham as RB1 or Coles as WR2.

    1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 DEF, 1 K

    Some Examples on Who I passed
    I passed on TO, Larry Johnson, and Maurice Jones Drew for Edwards. Only RBs I passed of note for Graham were Edgerrin James and Thomas Jones. And Darren McFadden if hes of note
    For Coles, I passed Hines Ward, Donald Driver, and Joey Galloway.

    I may have messed up picking Coles over Ward. But still, both Coles and Porter will be better better as they both have better QBs than before.

    Braylon Edwards over a good RB? With the 11th, I think you had like a shot at LJ, M Lynch, R Grant, maybe Barber, Portis?

    I always draft RBs early. RBs are the key...

    Another thing, I think Cotchery does better then Coles this year. Cotchery is meshing well with Favre, while Coles is still whining about losing Chad.

    I love the Kevin Smith pick in the sixth round.

    I think he'll be a workhorse for the Lions. I pick a rookie RB every year at some point.

    Better check the waiver wire for RB's.

    Or...

    Trade one of those WR's (Lavernous Coles, Jerry Porter, Deion Branch, Shaun McDonald, Steve Smith) plus a RB for a stud RB.

    Just had my draft last night. 12 team league. Standard scoring with no points per reception. I had the 2nd pick. No Cowboys on my team, I try not to be a homer in fantasy and they all went a little too high in my draft.

    QB: Cutler, Kitna
    RB: Peterson, Jamal Lewis, Brandon Jacobs (ick), Chester Taylor, Chris Brown
    WR: Colston, Roy Williams, Harrison, Engram, Meachem,
    TE: Crumpler, McMichael
    K: Josh Brown
    DEF: Packers

    I agree - he is going to start for Detroit and is a steal. I grabbed him in my league - late.

    Portis, Grant, and Barber were all gone at that pick. Grant, Lynch, and LJ were all picked in succession after me.

    I wanted Turner in the third round but he was picked two picks ahead of me so I went with Graham. I talked to the dude about a trade and he said he was interested in Coles. Should I aim higher or does that sound pretty good?

    My only rule for drafting fantasy is to stay away from division rivals. Just can't do it.

    I don't particularly like that I have Jacobs, but he fell too much for me to pass on him, especially considering my need for backup running backs because of injury concerns.

    Earnest Graham and Kevin Smith aren't bad for a 14 team league. They are not great but they don't suck......Kevin Smith (r) is going to start for Detroit and Martz is gone, so they will be running much more.

    Kevin Smith will surprise this year.

    Earnest Graham is solid - he saved my bacon last year.

    Had a mere 8 team draft last night. Went pretty good, though I still prefer my team from last year from a 10 team league.

    QB: Romo, Favre
    RB: Addai, McGahee, C. Johnson
    WR: B. Edwards, Chad Johnson, S. Holmes, M. Harrison, Calvin Johnson
    D: Dallas, GB
    K: Crosby, Brown

    League starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR/TE, 1 D, 1 K.

    Next weekend I draft in a 16 team league.

    12 team league

    1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 TE 1 DL 2 LB 1 Team Defense 1 Kicker

    Peyton Manning, Matt Hassleback
    Bryan Westrbook Justin Fargas Steve Slaton and Deangelo Williams
    Andre Johnson Brandon Marshall Greg Jennings Desean Jackson
    Antonio Gates and Anthony Fasano
    Aaron Kampman Kyle Vaden Bosch
    DWare Terrel Suggs Shaun Phillips
    Packers D Titans D
    Rob Borinas

    I think I did well I had the 4th pick RB went like hot cake. I was surprise I was able to get westbrook and when Peyton came back to me I had to take him even with the Injury that why I picked up Hasslebeck as my back up he is a good QB and they have a pass happy offense. Also Marshall suspended but I expect Greg Jennings to be big early on and when Marshall comes back I should be good. LMK what you guys think.
