Pewter Plank Fantasy Football: Draft Recap


Some of the staff and readers of The Pewter Plank had a fantasy football draft this evening, and here are the results, with some analysis of key picks.

Round: 1
(1) Revis Island24 – Doug Martin RB
(2) Sapp Attack – Adrian Peterson RB
(3) UTEP Miners – Ray Rice RB
(4) Revis And Butthead – Calvin Johnson WR
(5) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Aaron Rodgers QB
(6) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Arian Foster RB
(7) New York Buc – C.J. Spiller RB
(8) Bucs Win #1 – Marshawn Lynch RB
(9) Bucs Wht – LeSean McCoy RB
(10) JustBucIt . – Jamaal Charles RB
(11) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Dez Bryant WR
(12) CALI BUCS – A.J. Green WR

Doug was always going to go first, right? I think the QBs went a bit too early here, as did the two wideouts taken at the end of the first round, but all that meant some good players came back around in the second round.

Round: 2
(13) CALI BUCS – Drew Brees QB
(14) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Brandon Marshall WR
(15) JustBucIt . – Trent Richardson RB
(16) Bucs Wht – Matt Forte RB
(17) Bucs Win #1 – Alfred Morris RB
(18) New York Buc – Stevan Ridley RB
(19) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Chris Johnson RB
(20) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Montee Ball RB
(21) Revis And Butthead – Steven Jackson RB
(22) UTEP Miners – Maurice Jones-Drew RB
(23) Sapp Attack – Jimmy Graham TE
(24) Revis Island24 – Frank Gore RB

Richardson, Forte, Morris, Ridley in the middle of the second is great value on every player involved. I was happy to get MJD at the end of the second. Also, Montee Ball?

Round: 3
(25) Revis Island24 – Vincent Jackson WR
(26) Sapp Attack – Peyton Manning QB
(27) UTEP Miners – Demaryius Thomas WR
(28) Revis And Butthead – Larry Fitzgerald WR
(29) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Julio Jones WR
(30) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Tom Brady QB
(31) New York Buc – David Wilson RB
(32) Bucs Win #1 – Roddy White WR
(33) Bucs Wht – Randall Cobb WR
(34) JustBucIt . – Andre Johnson WR
(35) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Darren Sproles RB
(36) CALI BUCS – Victor Cruz WR

Sproles is great value there, too. I almost took him as my second running back, and didn’t want to get a third RB before getting Thomas, who was a value at the top of the third.

Round: 4
(37) CALI BUCS – Reggie Bush RB
(38) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – DeMarco Murray RB
(39) JustBucIt . – Marques Colston WR
(40) Bucs Wht – Lamar Miller RB
(41) Bucs Win #1 – Cam Newton QB
(42) New York Buc – Hakeem Nicks WR
(43) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Wes Welker WR
(44) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – DeAngelo Williams RB
(45) Revis And Butthead – Darren McFadden RB
(46) UTEP Miners – Danny Amendola WR
(47) Sapp Attack – Eric Decker WR
(48) Revis Island24 – Rob Gronkowski TE

I think this is a bit early on DeAngelo Williams, too, but Fire Them Buc Cannons! was taking some chances in this draft.

Round: 5
(49) Revis Island24 – Reggie Wayne WR
(50) Sapp Attack – Ryan Mathews RB
(51) UTEP Miners – Shane Vereen RB
(52) Revis And Butthead – Mike Wallace WR
(53) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Antonio Gates TE
(54) Aaront Trigger Fingers – BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB
(55) New York Buc – Dwayne Bowe WR
(56) Bucs Win #1 – Steve Smith WR
(57) Bucs Wht – Torrey Smith WR
(58) JustBucIt . – Matt Ryan QB
(59) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Jason Witten TE
(60) CALI BUCS – Giovani Bernard RB

Gio Bernard is a great pick at the end of the fifth round. Torrey Smith could be a very good pick here, too.

Round: 6
(61) CALI BUCS – Le’Veon Bell RB
(62) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Antonio Brown WR
(63) JustBucIt . – Tony Gonzalez TE
(64) Bucs Wht – Vernon Davis TE
(65) Bucs Win #1 – Chris Ivory RB
(66) New York Buc – Cecil Shorts WR
(67) Aaront Trigger Fingers – DeSean Jackson WR
(68) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Seahawks D/ST D/ST
(69) Revis And Butthead – Rashard Mendenhall RB
(70) UTEP Miners – Jordy Nelson WR
(71) Sapp Attack – James Jones WR
(72) Revis Island24 – Colin Kaepernick QB

Way too early for a defense, here. And I think it’s too early for Chris Ivory, although he’s probably not available much later. Just not very high on him.

Round: 7
(73) Revis Island24 – Eddie Lacy RB
(74) Sapp Attack – Daryl Richardson RB
(75) UTEP Miners – Mike Williams WR
(76) Revis And Butthead – Matthew Stafford QB
(77) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Andrew Luck QB
(78) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Owen Daniels TE
(79) New York Buc – Robert Griffin III QB
(80) Bucs Win #1 – Kyle Rudolph TE
(81) Bucs Wht – Tony Romo QB
(82) JustBucIt . – Ahmad Bradshaw RB
(83) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Pierre Garcon WR
(84) CALI BUCS – Greg Jennings WR

I feel like this is a great spot for Mike Williams, but I was the one to take him, so I would think that. Pierre Garcon is a steal at this point.

Round: 8
(85) CALI BUCS – Jordan Cameron TE
(86) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Russell Wilson QB
(87) JustBucIt . – Steve Johnson WR
(88) Bucs Wht – Miles Austin WR
(89) Bucs Win #1 – Tavon Austin WR
(90) New York Buc – Greg Olsen TE
(91) Aaront Trigger Fingers – T.Y. Hilton WR
(92) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Brian Hartline WR
(93) Revis And Butthead – Kenny Britt WR
(94) UTEP Miners – Mark Ingram RB
(95) Sapp Attack – Josh Gordon WR
(96) Revis Island24 – Chris Givens WR

Hilton and Givens are both solid picks in round 8.

Round: 9
(97) Revis Island24 – Vincent Brown WR
(98) Sapp Attack – 49ers D/ST D/ST
(99) UTEP Miners – Andre Brown RB
(100) Revis And Butthead – Michael Vick QB
(101) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Knile Davis RB
(102) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Anquan Boldin WR
(103) New York Buc – Lance Moore WR
(104) Bucs Win #1 – Sidney Rice WR
(105) Bucs Wht – Josh Freeman QB
(106) JustBucIt . – Emmanuel Sanders WR
(107) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Kendall Wright WR
(108) CALI BUCS – Vick Ballard RB

Josh Freeman going a bit early, but it’s a league full of Bucs fans, what did you expect?

Round: 10
(109) CALI BUCS – Bears D/ST D/ST
(110) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Johnathan Franklin RB
(111) JustBucIt . – Eli Manning QB
(112) Bucs Wht – Andre Roberts WR
(113) Bucs Win #1 – Ben Roethlisberger QB
(114) New York Buc – Ronnie Hillman RB
(115) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Denarius Moore WR
(116) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Stephen Gostkowski K
(117) Revis And Butthead – Jared Cook TE
(118) UTEP Miners – Zach Sudfeld TE
(119) Sapp Attack – Fred Davis TE
(120) Revis Island24 – Ryan Broyles WR

Yes, I took Zach Sudfeld in the 10th round. I am the conductor of this hype train. Hop on board.

Round: 11
(121) Revis Island24 – Texans D/ST D/ST
(122) Sapp Attack – Golden Tate WR
(123) UTEP Miners – DeAndre Hopkins WR
(124) Revis And Butthead – Buccaneers D/ST D/ST
(125) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Brandon Myers TE
(126) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Ben Tate RB
(127) New York Buc – Rueben Randle WR
(128) Bucs Win #1 – Mikel Leshoure RB
(129) Bucs Wht – Bengals D/ST D/ST
(130) JustBucIt . – Fred Jackson RB
(131) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Michael Floyd WR
(132) CALI BUCS – Malcom Floyd WR

I really like Ruben Randle here.

Round: 12
(133) CALI BUCS – Dustin Keller TE
(134) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Justin Blackmon WR
(135) JustBucIt . – Jermichael Finley TE

(138) New York Buc – Bryce Brown RB
(139) Aaront Trigger Fingers – Broncos D/ST D/ST
(140) Fire Them  Buc Cannons! – Patriots D/ST D/ST
(141) Revis And Butthead – Martellus Bennett TE
(142) UTEP Miners – Jay Cutler QB
(143) Sapp Attack – Andy Dalton QB
(144) Revis Island24 – Jonathan Stewart RB

Fantasy Analysis: Don’t take a kicker before the last round. Ever. Also, Jay Cutler is my starting quarterback. I feel so wrong.

Round: 13
(145) Revis Island24 – Bernard Pierce RB
(146) Sapp Attack – Danny Woodhead RB
(147) UTEP Miners – Matt Schaub QB
(148) Revis And Butthead – Jacquizz Rodgers RB

(153) Bucs Wht – Michael Bush RB
(154) JustBucIt . – Sam Bradford QB
(155) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Keenan Allen WR
(156) CALI BUCS – Robert Woods WR

I really like Jacquizz here, as I don’t have any faith in Steven Jackson.

Round: 14
(157) CALI BUCS – Matt Bryant K
(158) ‘Ish Ain’t FreeMAN! – Travis Kelce TE
(159) JustBucIt . – Shonn Greene RB

(165) Revis And Butthead – Mike Gillislee RB
(166) UTEP Miners – Coby Fleener TE
(167) Sapp Attack – Dan Bailey K
(168) Revis Island24 – Justin Tucker K

Bilal Powell and Alshon Jeffery are both late round sleepers for your fantasy team.

    Clearly Revis and Butthead has the best team. Calvin, Fitz, AND the Bucs DST. Biased opinion, but still.
