    Yeah true that, I just meant specifically in that draft he was definitely my next pick. Should have taken him on the way up but never mind.

    Antonio Brown
    LeSean McCoy
    Travis Kelce
    Alex Collins
    Aaron Rodgers
    Pierre Garcon
    Tevin Coleman
    Rex Burkhead
    Robert Woods
    DaVante Parker
    Atlanta Falcons
    Mason Crosby
    Dak Prescott
    George Kittle
    Darren Sproles

    Now if that isn't a ragtag bunch of misfits lol

    Rodgers
    McCoy, Collins
    Brown, Garcon/Woods
    Kelce
    Woods/Parker
    Falcons
    Crosby

    Something along those lines I feel

    as some-one who's had eyes glued to him in a keeper league for the last 3 years, I kinda can, I threw him back into the pool in that league this year. The high yardage, low TD count has been a yearly theme for him - he hasn't scored more than 8 TD's in a season since 2012, every-one at the Falcons was saying they were going to turn him into a red-zone monster in pre-season of last year and obviously that went exactly to plan Rolling Eyes

    he's just a maddening player to own, he earn his points in chunks, which isn't super ideal for winning week-to-week matchups, even in 2015, his best output over a season, more than 50 points over any total he's logged before or since, in which he was WR2 averaging 15 points a game, he went sub-10 points 6 times and of those,sub-5 twice.

    All that being said, i'd find it incredibly hard to pass him up if he was still there late round 2, but earlier than that, i think there are some guys being taken before and after him by most, that may not end up with a bigger season total, but will help win games weekly, as opposed to Jones helping win games every other week.

    He was my R1 pick in another league in back to back years.

    Will go off for 300 yards one week and then get 80 for the rest of the month. Maddening is a good word for it.

    Anyone wanna draft for me? I won't be able to make the time slot unfortunately. No dramas as I likely wouldn't have been able to make most time slots.

    Can I preset something my own preferable pick list on line?

    Just give someone from league 2 your log in details mate they can draft and hand team back over then, can you send a list via PM to them then? Prob best way of getting a team resembling close to what you want

    The 9:30am draft was just a random time that I chucked in guys. More then happy to change it, in fact I'll probably be autopicking if it is on then.

    League settings should be all correct now guys. If anyone has issues with a draft time for league 2 chuck up a time you'd be happy with.

    I cannot do 3.30pm - 5.30pm as that's when I drive to work and set up. Any other time is great so the 9.30am is OK for me.

    Yeah I'm happy with the 9:30, but can manage most other times as well. Driving Newcastle>Melbourne Sat and Sun so can plan my trip around draft time (the girlfriend will love it).

    I'm waiting for 2:00 pm for the mocks to open so I can get some runs in haha

    Also picking 3rd, tough this year with Bell (contract) DJ (returning long term injury) Gurley (regression) Zeke might be the best play

    Preseason hasn't really helped the Cowboys. Not sure how much they've played their starters, but o-line doesn't seem to be giving dak much time/dak not doing much to impress in offence. Absolutely zero WR help also. I can see a big regression in cowboys offence this year and whilst they will have to rely on Zeke, that will be easier to defend against.

    If I was picking at the top, I'd be looking at Gurley, DJ, Bell, Zeke, Barkley in that order. I'd love a bit of Barkley this year - going to be huge.

    I got some love for Juilo because his massive week towards the back end of last year won me 3k on Draftstars. Everyone was sick of paying up for him but i took the gamble and got 1st place Smile Smile

    I'm in the same boat working FRI, SAT and SUN nights from 5.00pm -4.30am. Get home around 5.00am and will do my best to stay awake for the 9.30am draft then try to get some sleep before going back to work around 4.30pm. To top it off, I have to post the NRL team lists for the 3.00pm game if I can. When I was young I used to pull all nighters all the time so this will be fun to try.

    I work for the TAB in their Granville office. On the roster there are day shifts from 7.00am - 5.00pm but I do about 90% night shifts (which I prefer) from 5.00pm - last race covered which is about 3.40am then about 30 mins to send reports. Love it....................
