What player did you draft a round or 2 early because you expect a monster year?



I've only had one draft so far and I really didn't have any reaches.

I picked RG3 at the end of the 5th round with pick 60. There was an early run on QBs: Brees, Rodgers, Manning all went in the 2nd round. Kaep/Cam went in the 3rd.

I think RG3 has a great sophomore year.

Closest thing I had to a reach was Gronk in the 5th. You have to make a risky decision at some point. If Gronk comes back for week 3 and plays like his old self then it could be huge for me.

Might of reached a bit with Emmanuel Sanders in the 8th but I have a great feeling about him.

E Sanders not a reach in 8'th! Eddy Lacey in 3'rd is.

Im not so sure about RG3 having a great fantasy season his 2nd year.

He only had more than 220 passing yards in 6 games last year. Which means he threw for less than 220 yards in 10 games last year. Which isnt good. A lot of his points came with his feet. 7 of his TDs were rushing and he rushed for over 815 yards.

Coming off a torn ACL, I dont see him putting up those rushing #s like he did last year. I doubt Shannahan runs any designed QB running plays. And he will be telling RG3 to not run the ball. They are going to try and protect him at all costs.

If he can get better as a passer in the pocket he should have a solid year, but I dont see him putting up the #s he did last year.

I knew a few people had their eye on him, so I took Thompkins at the end of the 7th. Bit of a stretch, but his ceiling is huge IMO.

Lamar Miller in like the 13th.


But really, Montee Ball in the 8th.

Lamar Miller in the 13th is a freaking steal. He went in the 4th in my league. Ball in the 8th is a solid pick too. He went 6th in my league. But, I am in a 14 man league. But still, I wouldnt consider either of those picks to be a reach.

How is that a "reach"?

It wasn't a reach. It was a joke.

I didn't expect to take Ball until a little later. I did miss out on Vernon Davis though.

Yeah I feel like I had a decent draft for that league. It's my first defensive player league so I don't know how that'll go. I was totally lost drafting defense. My team is posted in the rates team thread at the end.

Pick 8 - took David Wilson in the 2nd round. Every pick but 1 prior to that was a rb. I had to jump on him. Passed on Ridley and every wr not named Calvin Johnson. Wish I could have gotten him later, but I like him regardless
