    Please rate my draft, im a FF newbie

    It was an 18 team yahoo league, with all the members being British, so there were some odd picks!

    QB - Philip Rivers (SD)
    RB - Frank Gore (SF)
    WR - Steve Smith (CAR)
    WR - Darrell Jackson (SF)
    TE - Randy McMicheal (STL)
    W/T - Drew Bennett (STL)
    W/R - Thomas Jones (NYJ)
    K - Jeff Wilkins (STL)
    D - San Diego

    1. (6) Frank Gore RB
    2. (31) Steve Smith WR
    3. (42) Thomas Jones RB
    4. (67) Darrell Jackson WR
    5. (78) Philip Rivers QB
    6. (103) San Diego DEF
    7. (114) Randy McMichael TE
    8. (139) Jeff Wilkins K
    9. (150) Dwayne Bowe WR
    10. (175) Dominic Rhodes RB
    11. (186) Drew Bennett WR
    12. (211) Damon Huard QB
    13. (222) Bo Scaife TE
    14. (247) Indianapolis DEF
    15. (258) Hank Baskett WR

    my whole draft plan went out of the window when a early flourish of WRs saw Harrison, Holt, Chad Johnson and Roy Williams all go, so i grabbed Smith knowing that i could get a guy like Jones later on. I expect big things from Jones behind the NYJ line.

    There was a run of defenses and QBs as well, which is why i grabbed SD when i could. I always planned to grab McMike and Wilkins, and Drew Bennett was a bit of a sleeper pick for me.

    I also had to draft a back up QB and D at those positions as everyone else had taken backups and i grabbed a starter when i could.

    I'm not thrilled about Darrel Jackson's prospects with Alex Smith throwing to him, but I really like your runningbacks. Jones has really done well up in Chicago, and the Jets have spent several early round draft picks recently to improve their offensive line. Obviously Gore had a great season in 2006. Wilkins is a very solid kicker, and San Diego is a nice choice of defense. The only thing you'll really need to watch out for is when you have several players from one team (McMichael, Bennett, Wilkins) and they have a bad day, it can hurt. Of course, seeing as how they're the Rams, we shouldn't see too many bad days for the offense. However, it might be an issue when the bye week comes around. Overall, it looks pretty good to me, though.

    yeah my bye week problems arent that bad to be honest, although il have to pick up a better backup WR unless Bowe comes on strong

    The 2 questionables for me are McMichael and Bennett. We really don't know what kind of impact they are going to have on our RAMS offense. If they play up to all the hype about the Red Zone improvement they will help us create, than I think your team is solid. If not, you've got problems.
