Here is mine...
12 team Auction. Non-PPR. Unspent money is added to FA pool.
Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K, 1 Def
We changed the rules a bit this year due to Covid by adding a couple extra roster spots, expanding IR, and adding $25 (to $225) to budget.

I left too much on the table and should have invest more to go from an adequate/good backup or Bye option to get a better player at QB or Flex.

Decent team. You dropped the ball by spending money on Gronk and leaving the $19 on the table. With those two you could have spent $27 on another much needed RB because you are weak there.

I have a couple but my main league is a 14 team snake, .25ppr, 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K, 1 D. Drafted out of the 10 spot and teams went very RB heavy. So I had to take some mid round fliers on high upside type RBs.

QB: Goff
RB: Josh Jacobs, Antonio Gibson, Kareem Hunt, Zach Moss, Darrel Williams, Malcolm Brown
WR: D. Adams, Kupp, Gallup, D. Jackson, Preston Williams
TE: Fant
K: Gostkowski
D: Philadelphia

I'm in two leagues so usually try to draft duplicates for simplicity's sake.

12 team .5 pt PPR 1st pick
QB: TB12, Teddy Bridgwater
WR: Thielen, Godwin, McLaurin, Emmanuel Sanders
RB: CMC, JK Dobbins, R Jones II, Kerryon Johnson,
TE: Ertz, Gesicki
Drafted last night, and not too happy with my RB depth. Lets go Bucs!

12 team .5 pt PPR
4th pick
QB: R Wilson
WR: McLaurin, Justin Jefferson, C Kirk, D Samuel, John Brown
RB: A Kamara, L Bell, L Fournette, L Murray, Armstead
TE: Ertz, Olsen

Draft was the day before Fournette was released so I "wasted" my 3rd rounder.

Fournette landed in TB so I wouldn't say it was a complete waste. Ariens likes himself some receiving RB's.... at least that was my justification for picking him up 🤷‍♂️

Yeah, I'm thinking less touches per game than he would have gotten in Jax but more likely to get in the endzone.

Did you choose CMC with your first pick? A rookie RB?
EDIT: I now realize that CMC is Christian McAffery. I saw the initials and was thinking the RB from KC.

Most of you seem to still be doing snake drafts-- anyone do auctions? We switched 3 years ago and some were hesitant to try it, but now none of us will go back. Auction drafts seem way more fun and engaging. And at the end of the day, there are no excuses as everyone has an equal shot at any player.

I prefer auction as well but the main league is stuck on snake.

I’m all about the Arizona Stack this week. Although if the Falcons have the lead in the 2nd half, Wilson, Locket and Gurley will be tough to beat.

Arizona could be a good stack. They did well offensively against SF last year and it will likely be an under owned game.

We had that issue as well. 3 of our guys are accountants so naturally they are terrified of any change and were reluctant to make the switch after 8 years of snake drafting. But they were outvoted and love the auction drafting now.

Yeah, I'm guessing Carson...

Did you choose CMC with your first pick? A rookie RB?
Yeah, picked CMC first... JK/RB depth in general is my weak spot for that team and will be hard to fill in. Rounds 2-5 I struggled as I tried taking the best available and not reaching for a RB. Pickings were pretty slim and it's hard to predict what will be available when you get two picks then wait for 22 picks for your next opportunity. Picking on the ends of a snake draft suck. I'd take picks 4-9 all day if we got to choose.

Those talking about auction drafts, have any of you done them live? One of our leagues does a live draft, which is great, but I can't imagine how difficult it would be to do as an auction. I would love to propose it to both of my leagues though.

Ours is live.... kind of. We get pizza and beer and do the draft in our HOA rec center. We still use ESPN's platform so each of us brings our laptop/iPad and draft via it just because it's organized and easier. But we pause it from time to time for food and drink and talk crap to each other the whole time. Certainly NSFW or kids banter.

8 team PPR snake draft (I was 7th). I studied a grand total of 10 minutes. All the best RB's were gone by the time I drafted, so I loaded up elsewhere.

Mahomes, Mayfield
J Taylor, L Bell, M Gordon, J White, M Mack
Hopkins, Beckham, Gallup, Metcalf, J Brown
Kelse, Goedert
Lutz
Buffalo

If I get some decent RB career comeback production from Bell/Gordon (or if Taylor channels his Wisconsin Badgers production), I like my chances.

Dynasty league disbanded/took a year off due to COVID. Only one league this year, weird. First year I didn't do research since I started playing in 2001. Between that and I think forgetting that QBs are important.. meh. I was drunk.
Best hope is teams lose RBs and WRs to injury so I can have some trade power.

QB/QB Garappolo, Burrow
RB/RB Barkley, Carson
WR/WR Adams, AJ Brown
TE Kelce
FLEX/FLEX DJ Moore, David Johnson
K Zuerlein

We generally do our auction in person, not on the interwebs. Our commish manually adds all players after the draft.It is a lot more fun in my opinion, but also means everyone has to really pay attention and mark off who has been nominated. It is now a running joke to nominate Lamar Miller several times after one PERSON nominated them at least 3 times in one draft after he had been auctioned. I feel like if you really prepare and keep track of everything there are more steals late in the draft that people didnt realize are still available.

Found out today someone who was at the fantasy draft @ my house on Monday is COVID positive.

Was nice knowing you all. At least I won't have to play out a season with Joe Burrow as my fantasy QB.

I don’t think you can start Montgomery. I thought the Bears insiders thought if he went , he would get 8-10 touches . Maybe that has changed. Scratch that , Montgomery sounds like a go. I would lean Gibson in a ppr. I think Mack will get a lot of work for Indy in game 1


Ben for part 2
