My take on the draft and the upcoming season.  12 teams, one big weiner.

Cap'n Chaos' Chaos Unlimited
Keepers: Mendenhall, Schaub
First 10: Greene, Ochocinco, Vern Davis, Mike Wallace, 49ers D, Meachem, Hightower, Palmer, Massaquoi, L'il Leon Washington
Reach: 49ers D in the 5th.  Chaos could have had them two rounds later, but since it's his first year in the league, we'll give the noob a pass on this one.
Steal: Mike Wallace in the 6th.  Every single member of the league had Wallace on their board; the Cap'n rode out the early round run on WR to snag a decent starting pair.


AJ Law's Assaholics
Keepers: Gore, Grant
First 10: Moss, McCoy, Carolina Steve Smith, Maclin, Gonzalez, Kolb, NYJ D, Mason Crosby, Dominique Barber, Craig Terrill
Reach: Mason Crosby in the 8th.  Clinton Portis was still there, amongst others.  And AJ drafted Bironas in the 12th.  Pre-planning for a kicker's bye week?
Steal: Moss in the first?  Tashard Choice in the 14th?


Scac's Hungry Whoremongers
Keepers (via supplemental draft): Beardy, Steven Jackson
First 10:  Wayne, Wells, Clark, Sims-Walker, Bradshaw, Houshmanzadeh, Minny D, Kaeding, Lardass Webb, Chris Crocker
Reach: Jackson.  I just don't think he'll stand up to the wear and tear of all these awful Rams' teams.
Steal: Bradshaw.  If Brandon Jacobs can't go-- and he appears to be getting softer by the year-- Bradshaw will be a viable 1A rb.


Bonzr's Sideline Zombies
Keepers: Pip Livers, Ronnie Brown
First 10: Jon Stewart, Thomas Jones, Felix Jones, Wes Welker, Sidney Rice, Vincent Jackson, Heat Miller, Driver, Ryan, Maroney
Reach: When it comes to reach, Jonzr's is the Manute Bol of drafts.  Stewart, the Joneses, and Welker would all have been there later; Rice won't see the field for months and Jackson probably won't see the field at all.  He did get Nate Washington in the 16th, though, and as we all know Fisher believes Nate Dub is a true #1.  We all love us some Jonzr, but this could be the single worst draft in MGS FF history.
Steal: Maroney, I guess.  Jackson if he ever reports.

Spen's Spen's Angry Reds
Keepers: Boldin, DeAngelo Williams
First 10: Peehair Thomas, Eli Manning, Gates, Harvin, Reggie Bush, Fred Jackson, TO, NO D, John Carlson, Willis McGahee
Reach: Boldin as a keeper.  Would definitely have been there at 1.5.
Steal: Todd Heap in the 12th.  Provided the reports out of Rat Camp are accurate, Heap could return as a top 3 fantasy TE for dump-down Joey Flacco.

Penso's Chickens of General Gao
Keepers (via supplemental draft): Ryan Mathews, Arian Foster
First 10: Romo, New York Steve Smith, Witten, Jerome Harrison, Sticky Williams, Dez Bryant, THEE Steelers D, Jacoby Jones, Chris Cooley, Skippy Reed
Reach: Foster would have been there possibly even into round 2; I fell victim to the hype. Also, the Smith pick was a panicked reaction to the early WR run.
Steal: Mathews and Dez Bryant, who should be keepers for years to come.

Y2Joyce's Experienced Livers
Keepers; Ray Rice, Geraldine Fitzgerald
First 10:  Calvin Johnson, Matte Forte, Hines Ward, C.J. Spiller, Brent Celek, Devin Hester, Roethlisberger, Portis, Polamalu, Royal.
Reach: Fitzgerald as a keeper.  He's not going to put up the numbers his talent merits until he has someone to get him the ball.  Celek, because he's just not very good.
Steal: Johnson.  The Lions are going to have to throw the ball a ton; and Spiller, who could be Chris Johnson 2.0.

Fnngnswk's The Sportin' Woodleys
Keepers: Rodgers, Peterson
First 10: DeSean Jackson, Sproles, Nicks, Cribbs, Zach Miller, Donald Brown, McCluster, Eagles D, Sant Holmes, McFadden
Reach: DeSean Jackson and Sproles.  Finny claims his "computer" made these picks, but that's what you get for having a Mac.  Better off trying to log on with your toaster.
Steal: Nicks, if Smith proves to be a possession guy only.

 
Msdmnr's Msdmnr's Mongrels
Keepers: MJD, Michael Turner
First 10: Miles Austin, Colston, Jermichael Finley, Sloppy Joe Flacco, Garcon, Knox, Packers D, Garrett Hartley, Vrabel, Eric Smith
Reach: None per se that I can see.  Maybe Vrabel, whose numbers are subject to whimsy.  Probably could have been had in later rounds.
Steal: Hartley or Smith.  I can't decide which since I don't know who the hell either is.

Vinman's Pure Steel(r) II
Keepers: Brees, Addai
First 10: Marshall, Jahvid Best, Michael Bush, Bowe, Santana Moss, Helen Winslow, Baltimaroon D, Gostkowski, Justin Miller, Will Blackmon
Reach: IMO, Addai.  His numbers will be poached by Brown.  Maybe Marshall too, who I gather is not on the same page as Henne.
Steal: Best.  I think this dude's in for monster numbers, even if they come in garbage time when the Lions are down by 23 in the third quarter.

Kluisi's BenRapedMeToo
Keepers: Chris Johnson, Peytonface Manning
First 10: Moreno, Greg Jennings, Crabtree, Brandon Jacobs, Carnell Williams, Visanthe Shiancoe, Braylon Edwards, Lee Evans, Alex Smith, Carolina D
Reach: Moreno.  Yes, he's Denver's feature back, but that don't mean what it used to when Shananahan was there.
Steal: Jennings.  You know Finny wanted him as a tandem to Rodgers.  I think he'll be good for 12 td's this year.

KC's Keystone Cops
Keepers: Jamaal Charles, Andre Johnson
First 10: Ced Benson, Roddy White, Marion Barber, Brett Favre, Malcom Floyd, Forsett, Jay Cutler, Owen Daniels, NYG D, Greg Olsen
Reach: Charles and Benson as running back stable.  A couple of big if's there.
Steal: Daniels in the 8th.  Gonna be as good a fantasy TE as there is.  Also the pickup of Cutler is decent insurance against Favre getting a sandy vagina during the season.

The 'puter did freeze up once we went live, which is odd, since it never freezes ever. 

I did have DeSean targeted for R3, assuming most higher-rated WRs would be off and given the fact that once KR yardage factors, DJ was thee #1 FFL WR.  No qualms there.

Was hoping to get Jahvid Best the next round, so have to hope McCluster provides some surprise all-purpose value.  Sproles instead of Best really screwed my RB strategy.

The rest of the draft had few players snuck out from under me.  Of 18 live rounds, I got 10 guys I had targeted, although one was the aforementioned Sproles way too early.

I think Jackson's numbers dip without McNabb and the emergence of Maclin.  A lot of people saying Maclin's numbers might end up better; I doubt that, but I also doubt Jackson will be as good as last year.  More often than not return numbers fall in years 3 etc.

Fitzgerald's the best damn WR in the league. He almost cost us the Super Bowl one time. This writer has no credibility.

Good analysis. I wasn't completely happy keeping Boldin, but thought he was the best player I had after Williams who I wasn't thrilled with either. Heap looked great in the preseason but I dont have faith he'll stay healthy.
So far agree with the nick name you provided for Flacco. His numbers last year would have been a lot worse if Ray Rice wasnt so good receiving the ball. However I dont think he has had a good receiving group in his first two years. No excuses for him this year, if he cannot be successful with this group he is in trouble.

That's why I didn't keep the Beardy-Moss combo.  Saw better value in the supplementary draft.  Both Beardy and Moss are in contract years though so it was a tough decision.

I have a secret fear that Flacco wil be good and the Ravoons will dominate the division for the next 5-8 years.  There's a deep hatred for the Steelers in the Harbaugh family, dating back to the SB XXX year AFCC.

Forgot to add... with Chris Cooley and Arian Foster on the Chickens, I definitely lead the league in racialist names.
