    Saturday night my buddies and I did our draft for our yahoo league. There is only 7 teams in our league, its just a bunch of us who work together and play flag football together. Last year we only had 5 teams and let the computer do an auto draft so this year we picked up a couple more guys and were able to do our own live draft. It was a blast. I was pretty happy with my team turnout.

    QBs- Tony Romo, Carson Palmer
    RBs- DeAngelo Williams, Marion Barber, Willie Parker, Jamal Lewis, Felix Jones
    WRs - Antonio Bryant, Lee Evans, Donnie Avery, Chad Johnson
    TEs- Anontio Gates, Jeremy Shockey, Martellus Bennett
    Def/Special Teams- Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys
    Kickers- Robbie Gould, Nick Folk

    I didn't get quite the receivers I wanted to, because I focused more on my backs early on, but I wasn't totally upset about any of it.

    Yahoo let you draft with an uneven amount of teams?

    How many TEs do you start? If only 1, your CRAZY to draft 3..
    Martellus most likely would have been undrafted in a 7 team league. He has gone undrafted in every mock draft i've done this year.
    Not sure why you used one on him.

    We only start one and I only took Bennett, as another TE, because there really wasn't much left at WR that I cared about having, I already had 5 backs, and I didn't see the point in having another defense/kicker/QB.

    Yes yahoo allows you to draft with uneven teams. Last year our league only had 5. We were able to get 2 more this year. Hopefully next year we'll add another 2 or 3 teams. We're trying to get more people every year.

    But I do agree that he would have went undrafted, most likely. There was only 1 or 2 other guys there that night who would have considered him but, oh well, it's not for money and there are so few teams that I've pretty much got my starters that will start pretty much every week, outside of their by, so by the time we got to the 16th, 17th, 18th round (I got Bennett in the 17th) there just wasn't a whole lot there that i was worried about having.

    No offense but looks a bit weak for a 7 team league.

    7 teams X 4 WR's = 28 WR's taken and you still took Marty B?

    Keep Gates, dump Shockey or Marty and get one of these:

    Lance Moore
    Bernard Berrian
    Laveranues Coles
    Jerricho Cotchery
    Torry Holt
    Derrick Mason
    Donald Driver
    Devin Hester
