    Not sure how I'm feeling about this year's group. Last year I had both David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell, the latter I got in the 5th round b/c of his suspension. I was spoiled lol.

    QB: Derek Carr - new contract, lots of weapons, good offense

    RB: Todd Gurley - banking on him, hope all that determination pays through
    RB: LaMarr Miller - at first was excited I got him, but then...it looks like he may be a "meh"

    WR: Antonio Brown
    WR: Dez Bryant

    W/R: Amari Cooper

    ^^^OK, obviously my WRs are my strength

    TE: Hunter Henry - he had 9 TDs last year, and Phillip Rivers likes going to the TE.
    K: Sea Bass - I figure Oakland/LV is going to be a top offense, so that = points from K
    DEF: Houston Texans - duh, take the most potentially dominant D in the league

    Bench:
    Basically, my bench is full of RBs in case LaMarr Miller (or maybe Todd Gurley) under perform:

    Matt Forte, Ty Montgomery, and recently Kareem Hunt. I also have WR Kelvin Benjamin in case one of the starting WRs get hurt.

    Tyler Eifert is on my bench, as he is also a TD machine in case Hunter has a sophomore slump.

    And I have the Rams defense, because it was the last pick and I wanted them.

    I can't bring myself to choose shitchickens (or Patriots or 49er) players on my team.

    I got burned by taking Nuke last year. Ben is a little overrated at QB for fantasy though.

    I took Seahawks because I'm in Washington and that's my trade bait. Big Ben was the best of what was left. There was an early run on QBs unfortunately. I'm hoping having Bryant back and the addition of JuJu helps Ben put up more TDs

    We had an extra spot in our league so I picked up the Rams D. I'm starting them over Seattles this week. No way does a Luckless Colts put points up against a Phillips D.

    QB--Carr
    RB--LaMarr Miller
    WR--Mike Evans
    WR--Golden Tate
    TE--Gronk
    W/R--McFadden
    K--Janikowski
    D--Houston
    Bench
    RB--T Rawls
    RB--J Rodgers
    TE--H Henry
    WR--Kupp

    Keeper league (2 "skill" players plus a D or K) with 14 teams. So, by the time the draft starts the equivalent of 28 of the top players are gone plus some kickers and defenses. Makes it tough.
    I've actually had a couple of offers for Kupp.
    If Miller gets hurt it doesn't do well RB will kill me.
    McFadden and Rogers are just temp until suspensions are over. Later round picks.
