    In a 10 man league, 20 rounds. You can play this :

    QB
    WR
    WR
    WR
    RB
    RB
    TE
    WR/RB
    WR/TE
    DEFENSE
    KICKER

    I picked 3rd, then 18th, then 23, and so on.

    1st pick was between Gore and LJ....took LJ.
    2nd = Ced Benson
    3rd = Carson Palmer
    4th = Colston
    5th = Baltimore D
    6th = Caddy Williams
    7th = Reggie Brown
    8th = Terry Glenn
    9th = Jason Witten
    10th = Isaac Bruce
    11th = Lendale White
    12th = Jerious Norwood
    13th = Kevin Curtis
    14th = Chris Brown
    15th = Bo Scaife
    16th = Alex Smith (qb)
    17th = Anthony Gonzales
    18th = Amari Toomer
    19th = Peerless Price
    20th = Matt Stover

    Is 20 rounds a bit long? With 11 "starters", we're playing more positions than normal, right?

    Looks pretty good to me, though I think you went too early for the Ravens D. And I think Glenn's knee issues should drop him well below the 8th round.

    I thought the D was a bit early too. The Bears D had just gone off the board, and my friend (who took the Bears) said that a top D has always done well for him. Maybe it's how the league is set up.

    They've been saying Glenn will be ready for the season opener. There was a mad rush on WR's, and I think I may have flinched a bit on that pick.

    That's my first time ever for any FF stuff, I didn't even read anything before the draft. It was fun though, but a little long.

    Maybe I looked like a :bighomer: when I picked both the Titans RB's. But I figure it was late, they could be handcuffed (right term?), and this o-line should make one or both valuable.

    Pretty solid team, ones in bold I think are above average picks given the round, but ones in italic I think you jumped a little early on

    I'd say where you took both Titans RBs was excellent value. And Scaife should be as well if he gets most of the snaps at TE.

    I agree with DC you take Gore and wait about 4-5 + rounds to take a D like Denver or SD.

    I took San Diego defense in the seventh round in my draft. Was that too high?

    I think so, but that's just my philosophy. If I don't get a top D like Chicago or Baltimore, I just wait until later. There's usually not a huge difference between the #3 defense and the #10.

    In the interests of full disclosure, you should also let everybody know what the name of your team is (and why) before you dish out too much advice.......
