MMAmania FFB Draft Recap and Week 1 Preview

There is only an A league this season as there was not enough interest to support a B league.

Also, I will not have the time to write the fan posts each week this year. Are there any volunteers that would be willing to help me out? Hopefully a few want to help out and we can rotate this duty so we each only have to do it a couple times a year.

Draft Results

We held our draft last Thursday night. There were some great picks and some not so great picks (queue TFK and his Eric Decker comments). For the sake of time, this is what I'm presenting to yall this year.

KEEPERS

Letstalkmma - Jordy Nelson, Rob Gronkowski

StinkyFingers - Alfred Morris, Pierre Garcon

Shiv - Drew Brees, Julius Thomas

donkeypunch - Shady McCoy, Matt Forte

diazweedman - Marshawn Lynch, Aaron Rodgers

TripPilch - Eddie Lacy, Demaryius Thomas

Kevin - Adrian Peterson, AJ Green

TFK - DeMarco Murray, Antonio Brown

MMAboss - Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones

Joben - Peyton Manning, Alshon Jeffrey

ViolentMike - Jimmy Graham, Dez Bryant

Buster Bluth - Jamaal Charles, Calvin Johnson

IMO, donkey has the best keepers followed by Buster, then Trip then myself. Stinky, you unfortunately have the worst keepers. Our two keepers accounted for the first 2 rounds of the draft, so Thursday night, we kicked it off with Round 3.

Round 3
1. Montee Ball (Den - RB) Letstalkmma
2. Andre Ellington (Ari - RB) couch StAnky...
3. Reggie Bush (Det - RB) Shiv
4. Giovani Bernard (Cin - RB) donkeypunch
5. Rashad Jennings (NYG - RB) diazsweedman
6. Randall Cobb (GB - WR) TripPilch
7. Arian Foster (Hou - RB) Mania's Pete...
8. Doug Martin (TB - RB) TFK
9. Le'Veon Bell (Pit - RB) MMA Boss
10. Zac Stacy (StL - RB) Joben
11. Toby Gerhart (Jax - RB) ViolentMike
12. Keenan Allen (SD - WR) Buster Bluth

Bush before Gio was a bit of a surprise, especially for a keeper league. Jennings was a bit early. I got stuck with a white boy.

Round 4
1. C.J. Spiller (Buf - RB) Buster Bluth
2. Michael Crabtree (SF - WR) ViolentMike
3. Victor Cruz (NYG - WR) Joben
4. Shane Vereen (NE - RB) MMA Boss
5. Jordan Cameron (Cle - TE) TFK
6. Wes Welker (Den - WR) Mania's Pete...
7. Vincent Jackson (TB - WR) TripPilch
8. Michael Floyd (Ari - WR) diazsweedman
9. Roddy White (Atl - WR) donkeypunch
10. Pierre Thomas (NO - RB) Shiv
11. Andrew Luck (Ind - QB) couch StAnky...
12. Cordarrelle Patterson (Min - WR) Letstalkmma

The homer took a Patriot, surprise surprise. TFK panicked about TE and took Cameron kinda early. Kev wishes he was out doing molly with Welker rather than drafting him in the 4th.

Round 5
1. Joique Bell (Det - RB) Letstalkmma
2. Kelvin Benjamin (Car - WR) couch StAnky...
3. Larry Fitzgerald (Ari - WR) Shiv
4. Matt Ryan (Atl - QB) donkeypunch
5. Eric Decker (NYJ - WR) diazsweedman
6. Ryan Mathews (SD - RB) TripPilch
7. Andre Johnson (Hou - WR) Mania's Pete...
8. Emmanuel Sanders (Den - WR) TFK
9. Matthew Stafford (Det - QB) MMA Boss
10. Percy Harvin (Sea - WR) Joben
11. Jeremy Maclin (Phi - WR) ViolentMike
12. Torrey Smith (Bal - WR) Buster Bluth

I really like the Joique Bell and Emmanuel Sanders picks. Both can easily be top 10 producers at their positions. Oh, and Eric Decker??? Really??? LOL. This can't be right. Is this real life??

Round 6
1. Tom Brady (NE - QB) Buster Bluth
2. Golden Tate (Det - WR) ViolentMike
3. T.Y. Hilton (Ind - WR) Joben
4. Kendall Wright (Ten - WR) MMA Boss
5. Mike Wallace (Mia - WR) TFK
6. Vernon Davis (SF - TE) Mania's Pete...
7. Terrance Williams (Dal - WR) TripPilch
8. Jason Witten (Dal - TE) diazsweedman
9. Julian Edelman (NE - WR) donkeypunch
10. DeSean Jackson (Was - WR) Shiv
11. Maurice Jones-Drew (Oak - RB) couch StAnky...
12. Brandin Cooks (NO - WR) Letstalkmma

Kendall Wright could prove to be quite the value pick in round 6.

Round 7
1. Bishop Sankey (Ten - RB) Letstalkmma
2. Marques Colston (NO - WR) couch StAnky...
3. Danny Amendola (NE - WR) Shiv
4. Greg Olsen (Car - TE) donkeypunch
5. Seattle (Sea - DEF) diazsweedman
6. Reggie Wayne (Ind - WR) TripPilch
7. Tony Romo (Dal - QB) Mania's Pete...
8. Jay Cutler (Chi - QB) TFK
9. Ray Rice (Bal - RB) MMA Boss
10. Zach Ertz (Phi - TE) Joben
11. Ben Tate (Cle - RB) ViolentMike
12. Frank Gore (SF - RB) Buster Bluth

Hopefully Sankey can produce. Colston could be good value here. Wayne is good value here. I like the Zach Ertz pick.

Round 8
1. Kyle Rudolph (Min - TE) Buster Bluth
2. Nick Foles (Phi - QB) ViolentMike
3. Trent Richardson (Ind - RB) Joben
4. Dennis Pitta (Bal - TE) MMA Boss
5. Jeremy Hill (Cin - RB) TFK
6. Chris Johnson (NYJ - RB) Mania's Pete...
7. Cam Newton (Car - QB) TripPilch
8. Fred Jackson (Buf - RB) diazsweedman
9. Riley Cooper (Phi - WR) donkeypunch
10. Brian Hartline (Mia - WR) Shiv
11. Colin Kaepernick (SF - QB) couch StAnky...
12. Darren Sproles (Phi - RB) Letstalkmma

Trent Richardson sucks cocks. Riley the Racist gets drafted this round. Then another white WR followed by a half white QB. What does this all mean? I don't fucking know, I'm already sick of writing this fucking fan post....

Round 9
1. Carlos Hyde (SF - RB) Letstalkmma
2. Charles Clay (Mia - TE) couch StAnky...
3. Danny Woodhead (SD - RB) Shiv
4. Anquan Boldin (SF - WR) donkeypunch
5. Rueben Randle (NYG - WR) diazsweedman
6. Justin Hunter (Ten - WR) TripPilch
7. Russell Wilson (Sea - QB) Mania's Pete...
8. St. Louis (StL - DEF) TFK
9. Mike Evans (TB - WR) MMA Boss
10. Steven Jackson (Atl - RB) Joben
11. Jordan Reed (Was - TE) ViolentMike
12. Lamar Miller (Mia - RB) Buster Bluth

Round 9? How many more of these fucking things I gotta copy/paste and say something stupid for???? Hyde is a nice pick, possibly really nice for next year.

Round 10
1. Robert Griffin III (Was - QB) Buster Bluth
2. Lance Dunbar (Dal - RB) ViolentMike
3. San Francisco (SF - DEF) Joben
4. Cecil Shorts III (Jax - WR) MMA Boss

7. Bernard Pierce (Bal - RB) TripPilch
8. DeAngelo Williams (Car - RB) diazsweedman
9. Hakeem Nicks (Ind - WR) donkeypunch
10. Mark Ingram (NO - RB) Shiv
11. Martellus Bennett (Chi - TE) couch StAnky...
12. Philip Rivers (SD - QB) Letstalkmma

Remember how early RG3 was picked last year? I wonder what that bald fuck Mrs G Smith thinks about this? Why doesn't he ever show any interest in FFB???

Round 11
1. Tavon Austin (StL - WR) Letstalkmma
2. Jarrett Boykin (GB - WR) couch StAnky...
3. Dwayne Bowe (KC - WR) Shiv

10. Malcom Floyd (SD - WR) Shiv
11. Arizona (Ari - DEF) couch StAnky...
12. James White (NE - RB) Letstalkmma

I finally draft the only Giant on any of my three teams. They are going to be so terrible this year. My fantasy teams better do well otherwise I got nothing to root for this season...

Round 13
1. Denver (Den - DEF) Letstalkmma
2. James Jones (Oak - WR) couch StAnky...
3. Carson Palmer (Ari - QB) Shiv

9. Tyler Eifert (Cin - TE) donkeypunch
10. Josh Gordon (Cle - WR) Shiv
11. Dan Carpenter (Buf - K) couch StAnky...
12. Khiry Robinson (NO - RB) Letstalkmma

Big fan of my bench. There is still another couple payers I want that are availalbe but I have no drops... Kev, Eli???? really??? ELI????? Shiv already thinking ahead to next year. After seeing his roster, I couldn't blame him!

Round 15

9. Justin Tucker (Bal - K) MMA Boss
10. Josh McCown (TB - QB) Joben
11. Philadelphia (Phi - DEF) ViolentMike
12. Nick Novak (SD - K) Buster Bluth

If you don't wait till the last two rounds to take your kicker and defense, you are retarded. If you draft a kicker that is suspended for 4 weeks, you are borderline johnnyboy. And TFK, nice pick dude. Loving Kelce this year, got him on the rest of my squads but didn't want to carry 3 TE .....

10. Minnesota (Min - DEF) Shiv
11. Marvin Jones (Cin - WR) couch StAnky...
12. Chris Polk (Phi - RB) Letstalkmma

Foster's handcuff always has to get drafted and Buster made sure he did in our draft.
