I'd love to see your entire draft rundown...there's no way any team in my league would end up with Matty Ice, Lesean, McFadden, and Marshall.
Those are top 3 picks for any 12 team league, except that you have 4 top 3 picks there.
well, here's why it happened.
Our point system awards 6 PTS per passing TD as opposed to the standard 4.
That caused a massive run on QBs first and second round. Knowing I was picking dead middle I decided to draft against the runs because if I went w/ the standard runs that I anticipated I'd be sure to see the guys I wanted go off the board.
I absolutely thought DMC would be off the board by 2.6, but the later round 1st went RB, due to the front end 1st QB run (which I anticipated happening) so 2nd front end took lots of QBs.
The stars aligned when DMC was sitting there. I took Marshall at 3.6 which right where he should go.
All in all, my strategy worked to a tee.
I only got McCoy bc of the QB run, DMC fell to me (which he did about half the time in mocks), and Marshall was sitting there in the 3rd. You can get Matty Ice 4th or 5th round based on his ADP. If your draft shows lack of QB run in the first 2 you might want to reach for him in the 3rd if you need to. Huge value pick IMO. And I knew he'd be there bc of the other teams stocking QBs 1st and second. It allowed me to reach a bit for Harvin to secure him knowing damn well Ice would fall to me in the 5th.
