Fantasy Football Live Draft Results: Rounds 11-14

So at this point my team was pretty well set up and I wanted to grab a defense. As you can see there was a small run in the 11th, so with the 3rd pick in the 11th I decided to take the Broncos. Even with Von Miller being out for six games, I think the Broncos still have a strong defense that can cause a lot of turnovers.

ROUND 11
121 Charles Tillman, Chi CB  
122 Ryan Broyles, Det WR  
123 Broncos D/ST D/ST  
124 Morgan Burnett, GB S  
125 Terrell Suggs, Bal LB  
126 Greg Jennings, Min WR  
127 Michael Vick, Phi QB  
128 Eric Weddle, SD S  
129 Cameron Wake, Mia DE  
130 Stephen Gostkowski, NE K  
131 Rams D/ST D/ST  
132 Patriots D/ST D/ST  

I have been keeping an eye on DeAndre Hopkins of the Texans, and if he wasn’t taken before the 10th round, I wanted to grab him. If Arian Foster ends up getting hurt and Ben Tate is unable to carry the load, the Texans will be forced to air it out a little more. If Andre Johnson also becomes hurt at some point, Hopkins moves into the number 1 wide receiver role. I took him near the end of the 12th round.

133 Andy Dalton, Cin QB  
134 Sam Bradford, StL QB  
135 D’Qwell Jackson, Cle LB  
136 Harrison Smith, Min S
137 Ben Tate, Hou RB  
138 Chad Greenway, Min LB  
139 Sidney Rice, Sea WR  
140 Joe Flacco, Bal QB  
141 Elvis Dumervil, Bal DE  
142 DeAndre Hopkins, Hou WR  
143 Chris Givens, StL WR  
144 Danny Woodhead, SD RB  

I still did not have a tight end at this point, and I was debating between Jared Cook and Kyle Rudolph. I owned Cook last year and I think he has a lot of natural talent, but I don’t think things will really be much different in St.Louis. Because of my 94 point strategy, Rudolph has a higher upside to score more points per game then Cook, so I went with Rudolph.

145 Jason Pierre-Paul*, NYG DE  
146 Marcel Reece, Oak RB  
147 Kyle Rudolph, Min TE  
148 Jonathan Stewart*, Car RB  
149 Kenny Britt, Ten WR  
150 Cowboys D/ST D/ST  
151 Muhammad Wilkerson, NYJ DT
152 Shonn Greene, Ten RB  
153 Isaiah Pead, StL RB  
154 Josh Freeman, TB QB  
155 Paul Posluszny, Jac LB  
156 Michael Bush, Chi RB  

I have listened to several podcasts this year that have preached the general concept that if you own an elite Quarterback, there is no need to have a second one on your team. The only reason to have a second QB is if your starter has some type of injury concern such as RG3. I have always drafted a second QB, but this year I wanted my bench to entirely consist of running backs and wide receivers. Tony Romo had the 8th most points in fantasy football last year, and I couldn’t pass up the value in the 14th round. If Brady gets hurt or for some reason gets in some kind of slump, I couldn’t pass up having two quarterbacks that could potentially end up in the top five. If Brady has a monster year, I could always trade Romo at some point as well.

ROUND 14
157 Brian Cushing, Hou LB  
158 Curtis Lofton, NO LB  
159 Golden Tate, Sea WR  
160 Michael Floyd, Ari WR  
161 Eli Manning, NYG QB  
162 Cordarrelle Patterson, Min WR  
163 Jerod Mayo, NE LB  
164 Pierre Thomas, NO RB  
165 Matt Prater, Den K  
166 Tony Romo, Dal QB  
167 Josh Brown, NYG K  
168 Greg Little, Cle WR  

This league also selects defensive players which I took more on feeling than anything else, but I ended up taking Sebastian Janikowski in the 16th. 

I think my final team is destined for greatness, and I am really excited to see what they can do.

QB Tom Brady, NE QB
RB Ray Rice, Bal RB
RB Stevan Ridley, NE RB  
RB/WR Maurice Jones-Drew, Jac RB  P
WR Vincent Jackson, TB WR
WR Marques Colston, NO WR  P
TE Kyle Rudolph, Min TE
K Sebastian Janikowski, Oak K
D/ST Broncos D/ST D/ST
Bench Rashard Mendenhall, Ari RB  
Bench Mike Wallace, Mia WR
Bench Andre Brown, NYG RB
Bench Josh Gordon, Cle WR  SSPD
Bench DeAndre Hopkins, Hou WR  Q
Bench Tony Romo, Dal QB
