    My First Fantasy Football Team has been drafted!

    The league is a standard Yahoo public league, meaning 10 teams and a 15 man roster. 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF. It's more of a TD league since ALL TDs are worth 6 points, and you only got 1 point per 20 rushing/receiving yards and 1 point per 50 passing yards. Here was how it went down.

    Yahoo Public 13623 Draft (Socialist Comrades)

    Round 1, Pick 4: Shuan Alexander
    Round 2, Pick 17: Corey Dillon
    Round 3, Pick 24: Torry Holt
    Round 4, Pick 37: Tim Brown
    Round 5, Pick 44: Steve McNair
    Round 6, Pick 57: Marcus Pollard
    Round 7, Pick 64: Mike Vanderjagt
    Round 8, Pick 77: Miami Defense
    Round 9, Pick 84: Trent Green
    Round 10, Pick 97: Travis Henry
    Round 11, Pick 104: Marty Booker
    Round 12, Pick 117: Ed McCaffrey
    Round 13, Pick 124: Kevin Dyson
    Round 14, Pick 137: Jake Plummer
    Round 15, Pick 144: Ken Dilger

    Lineup:

    QB: Steve McNair
    WR: Torry Holt
    WR: Tim Brown
    WR: Ed McCaffrey
    RB: Shaun Alexander
    RB: Corey Dillon
    TE: Marcus Pollard
    K: Mike Vanderjagt
    DEF: Miami
    Bench: Marty Booker, Trent Green, Travis Henry, Kevin Dyson, Jake Plummer, Ken Dilger

    As you can see I had some idiots in the draft, as I got some solid WRs late. I also got two top tier RBs starting for me as well. The only question mark is at QB and backup RB, but McNair is still a top 10 QB and Henry is a fine backup. BTW some idiot dropped Jay Fiedler and Chris Chambers onto the wavier wire. I'm going to try to dump Pummer for Fiedler and Dyson for Chambers. I hope I can pull that off.

    Any comments or suggestions?

    You weren't kidding when you said you had some idiots in the draft! You have to 2 great RBs. As you said, your backup RB situation is very mirky. I think Trent Green is a fine backup QB. I see him improving immensely this year, and may even end up putting up better numbers than McNair.

    Just got Chambers and Green

    Last week I managed to snag Chris Chambers and William Green off waivers! Let's take a look at the lineup now.

    Starters:
    QB: Steve McNair
    WR: Torry Holt
    WR: Tim Brown
    WR: Chris Chambers
    RB: Shaun Alexander
    RB: Corey Dillon
    TE: Marcus Pollard
    K: Mike Vanderjagt
    DEF: Miami

    Bench:
    QB: Trent Green
    WR: Marty Booker
    WR: Ed McCaffrey
    RB: William Green
    RB: Travis Henry
    TE: Ken Dilger

    As you can see I have solid backups working at every position except TE, K, and DEF. Yes, Trent Green is a solid backup, believe it or not. William Green is at least a #2 RB this year, thus making him a money backup. I'm stacked at WR, obviously. I'm probably going to use the spot Ken Dilger has to sub in and out TE/K/DEF based on bye weeks. Once the bye weeks are over I can fill that roster spot with someone solid at any of those positions for backup purposes.

    your backup RB will put up 1200 yards... that's pretty solid for a backup IMHO... Plummer is in a contract year; keep him (plus they have to pass a LOT)
