Sorry for the late post, needed a haircut and wanted to hit the gym before it got late but anyway here we go!
CSD Fantasy Dynasty League had its draft a week ago. It was a great experience and I think I did not prepare well enough for it. The guys in my draft had some picks I did not see coming and that sort of shifted my focus mid draft. I tried to stay true to my board but that might have hurt me in the long run. Wanting to win now and later was a difficult balance but I think I walked off with a pretty decent team. Big props to Matt Massot who I think walked off with the best team in our draft and thank you all for participating! I am looking forward to many years of competition, best of luck, but not too much!
Some Draft Rules and then we dig in!

Well well well… Ezekiel Elliot again, I won’t even discuss him more than a line in this analysis. He looked good vs. the Seahawks, not regular season but still a really solid defense, let’s move on.
Staying true to my pre-draft rankings I went with Alshon Jeffery in the second round and T.Y. Hilton in the third. Even though Jeffery is the only big time wide receiver that did not get a big time contract I still believe he can post his regular numbers. Reports out of Chicago and out of the saddest man alive (Jay Cutler) is Kevin White not ready for prime-time yet and that leads me to believe there is only one target, maybe one and a half left in Chicago and that is Jeffery. When Luck bounces back T.Y. is his guy, major bounce back year and Luck will hopefully be Luck for years to come and make T.Y. good for dynasty.
With the Devin Funchess and the Melvin Gordon picks is where we see me stray away from what I usually would do, stick to my numbers. I saw a lot of people in the draft, pick younger talent that had not really produced on a high level, so there was a shortage of younger players for upcoming years, I decided on these two players since their camps and preseasons have been good. That was the same analysis with Christine Michael, not so much younger but he has had a good preseason and I don’t trust Prosise to steal too much from him.
If you have read my earlier posts I am really high on Famous Jamies so he was the quarterback I target in this draft, then that Carson Palmer just happen to fall was nice for my win now mentality, still think Jameis will be really good this season but I can stream them according to match-up, don’t put too much in why Jameis is on the bench. Dak Prescott was a fun pick, since he has been playing so well in preseason and Tony Romo won’t play for ever, or at all…
Eric Ebron could be my tight end for the future and he has a gunslinger for quarterback so he can be really good in the future, but for this year I’m sticking to Julius Thomas once again!
What do you think of this team, what would you have done different, let me know in the comments!
