I do a 12 team league with a bunch of guys I went to school with, $50 entry, standard scoring. Picked our draft order out of a hat and I got eleventh. The first nine picks were all running backs then the guy right before me picked Antonio Brown so I had no other choice but to draft....
1st Round Julio Jones WR1
Julio! Sure I could've picked Dez or D. Thomas but why would I do such a thing when my favorite player fell to me at pick 11 to make it even better.

2nd Round Lamar Miller RB1
Aaron Rodgers and Dez went off the board next then the pick came back around to me, could've went with D. Thomas but wanted a work horse running back. Chose Miller over Jeremy Hill just because Hill has a better back behind him in Giovani Bernard.

3rd Round Melvin Gordon RB2
I swear I have cards of most of the guys I drafted, hopefully Gordon looks better than he has in the preseason.
4th Round Jordan Matthews WR2
New #1 target in Chip Kelly's offense? Yes please.
5th Round Arian Foster
Saw reports he'll be back by week 3-5 so took a gamble and got Arian in the 5th round.
6th Round Travis Kelce
I had Gronk last year so I wanted to still have a strong tight end, used my 6th round pick to get this guy. Now that Fasano is gone he should get allllll the checkdowns and this dude is a YAC machine.
7th Round Matt Ryan
Looking like a homer here I know but Brady, Roethlisberge, Stafford all went in this round and all the other top QBs were gone at this point. It was pick Ryan or get stuck with Eli or Rivers or worse.
8th Round Darren McFadden
My plan here is for McFadden to steal the show in Dallas behind that super O-Line until the notorious glass man gets hurt right in time for Arian Foster to come back and carry the load for my imaginary team.
10th Round Terrance Williams
Dez can't get all the touchdowns right?
11th Round Green Bay DEFENSE
I obviously didn't pick Clay Matthews but look at Cutler's face! Hopefully that's all the QBs they play this year.
12th Round Montee Ball
Had his card but it's since been shipped to Tim at I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning, much like Montee ball looks to be getting shipped out of town in Denver, oh well at least it was only a 12th round pick.
13th Round Blair Walsh
If you have any card of Melvin Gordon or Lamar Miller you are looking to trade let me know.
Thanks for reading, i'll post some baseball cards tomorrow!
