    Would you be able to make the other time in the second league?

    Assuming those are in order, how the fuck did you get Ryan Matthews in round 9?! I realize he is a risk, but that is about 3-4 rounds too late. /applaud I'll even overlook you taking a kicker in round 11 instead of 14-15 because that is just a hell of a steal.

    You have WR1, likely QB3, two more potential top 10 WR (along with a likely amazingly solid WR in Austin), a top 5 TE, and questionable RBs. Johnson could be top 10, Bradshaw and Matthews should both be top 30. You didn't get a D in the draft, at all lol.

    Pen that was the order of the draft and Bailey is always solid.

    I should probably pick a kicker later in the draft but for some reason I always get a ton of points from Bailey like every year.

    Dan Bailey was K11 last year at 130 points. K5 in 2011. If you sprang at all for Baily you is cray as he is K8 or K9 in most preseason rankings.

    Back to the handcuff discussion, I personally think it's a little overrated. When it comes time to make roster moves because of injuries, byes, or some unknown becomes a star, it's hard to justify dropping someone who plays regularly instead of a RB who doesn't play but the guy he is backing up might get hurt at some point. It's fine targeting a Fred Jackson or Rashad Jennings in a late round if you have their respective starter (but in late rounds those type backs are probably the best available anyway so everyone will target them), but those guys shouldn't prevent you from making appropriate roster moves because you are worried about your starter getting hurt.

    having Forte and Bush didn't do me any good since they liked to suck in tandem

    I don't really buy into the whole handcuff thing, but if you can get them in a very late round and they actually have some upside then it isn't a terrible idea

    The Broncos RB situation is maddening. I have Ball in a league and I really don't think I can start him week 1. Hillman has fumbled 3 times in the pre-season and he was the only big name to play in the last game, making it look like he was behind Ball and Moreno, but he was taking virtually all of the first team reps in practice yesterday.

    I would probably not start Ball what with him not making the 53 man roster

You want to especially focus on that in systems where there will be split carries, guys have shaky grasps on the starting position, or there is injury questions. If you have one of these RB1s, it is real important to try and handcuff their backup to them or at least have a viable option on your team to replace them:
    Team: Starter-Backup
    Oakland: Darren McFadden-Rashad Jennings (McFadden has never played more than 13 games)
    Cinncy: BenJarvus Green Ellis-Giovanni Benard (whoever ends up the starter/backup, you want both)
    San Diego: Ryan Matthews-Ronnie Brown
    Kansas City: Jamaal Charles-Kirle Davis
    Denver-Montee Ball-Ronnie Hillman-Knowshown Moreno (I don't know how their depth chart is shaking out)
    Houston: Arian Foster-Ben Tate
    Buffalo: CJ Spiller-Fred Jackson
    New England: Steven Ridley-Shane Vereen
    Indy: Amhad Bradshw-Vick Ballard or Donald Brown (I don't know who the backup is)
    Dallas: DeMarco Murray-Joesph Randle
    Philly: Shady McCoy-Bryce Brown
    Giants: Dave Wilson-Andre Brown
    Detroit: Reggie Bush-Joique Bell
    Arizona: Rashard Mendenhall-Ryan Williams
    St Louis: Daryl Richardson-Isaiah Pead
    Seattle: Marshawn Lynch-Robert Turbin

    That is the bulk of the list of guys you might want to try and handcuff if possible.
    Additional fantasy tips:
    -Do not draft any New York Jets. None of their position players are worth it at all. Their entire WRs fantasy projections are just slightly above Calvin Johnson alone.
    -Do not draft Darren McFadden. He always ends up hurt or underperforms massively. Always. Terrell Pryor will probably end up with more rushing yards than him this year.
    -Don't get drunk on drafting a big name QB or defense. You can easily get by with a solid mid-round QB (Tony Romo or Matt Ryan) while taking a huge upgrade at RB then you would have got later. Defenses are unpredictable and you can always stream defenses based on matchups.
    I love you conscript.

    And Skars let me do it with you. You do Yahoo mock drafts right? Lemme know the time and I'll be there.

    10:30 one is about to start 9th pick..... I see a pattern.

    - - - Updated - - -
