I had the number 1 overall pick and chose not to go with AP. All the stats and experts said that he was the guy but jit just did sit right with me and i can't explain why; anyway, here's what i ended up with in a PPR 10man draft:


1. Doug Martin

2. Matt Forte

3. Steven Jackson ( I think he will be a beast this year)

4. Larry Fitzgerald

5. Jason Witten

6. Danny Amendola

7. Andrew Luck (QBs went fast and early)

8. Anquan boldin

9. Lamar Miller

10. Rashard Mendenhall

11. Tony Romo

12. Kenny Britt

13. Ben Tate

14. Jordan Cameron

15. Patriots

16. Chris Givens

17. Daniel Thomas

18. Dan Bailey

I love your team.... Looks to me that you got three top 10 RB's, solid WR's, Top TE and Luck. Personally I would have taken AP but Martin certainly is pretty close!
12 team, PPR league with standard Yahoo scoring. 1pt per 25 yards for (5 pts at 300) passing, 1pt per (5pts at 100) 10 yards for rushing. 4 pts for passing td's.

Unless you take a kicker, I don't think you can F up the first pick of the draft. ADP has a lot to live up to based off last season. Martin is a a solid #1, you seem to have built a good team.

You killed the first five and I like Cameron and Givens.

QB's went fast and early and you still got a 4,000 yards 30 plus TD QB with the 11th pick. As all the prognasticators suggest Romo has one of the easiest pass schedule this season.

Make no bones about it, even if Martin goes does your team is still solid!

But so far as the #1 pick goes, right now you are hoping Martin can repeat, as with AP, barring injury, you know he is going to repeat!
