CBS Fantasy Football 2013 draft results (8th pick)

Advertisement

What do you do when you can’t sleep and run a fantasy football website?  You complete a fantasy football draft, naturally!  So it was that I found myself entered into a 5:30 AM draft over at CBSSports.com with 11 other insomniacs, and we drafted for a CBS flex league (includes the RB/WR slot).  In total this was a 14 round draft, and I had the 8th overall pick to begin.

Here is a peek at who I ended up with, and of course there will be a few notes, and then we shall conclude with the full draft results.

QB – Cam Newton (Rd 4 Pick 41)
RB – Ray Rice (Rd 1 Pick 8) RB – Chris Johnson (Rd 2 Pick 17)
WR – Randall Cobb (Rd 3 Pick 32) WR – Torrey Smith (Rd 6 Pick 65)
TE – Owen Daniels (Rd 8 Pick 89)
RB/WR – Ryan Mathews (Rd 5 Pick 56)
DST – Houston Texans (Rd 13 Pick 152)
K – Matt Prater (Rd 14 Pick 161)

BN – Matthew Stafford (Rd 7 Pick 80)
BN – BenJarvus Green-Ellis (Rd 9 Pick 104)
BN – Danny Woodhead (Rd 10 Pick 113)
BN – Golden Tate (Rd 11 Pick 128)
BN – Jacquizz Rodgers (Rd 12 Pick 137)

Obviously, the order will change some, but the vast majority of drafts will see 9 of the first 10 picks being running backs.  I chose Ray Rice with the 8th overall pick, as my choices at that point were between him, McCoy, Morris and T-Rich.  On the way back I was able to snag CJ?K who will hopefully solidify the backfield.  Round 3 it was time to grab a stud WR, and with the injury to Jordy Nelson I felt more comfortable with my pickup of Cobb, and with the other top QB’s off the board, I couldn’t resist grabbing our projected #3 QB this year in Cam Newton (Those 6 point rushing TD’s add up!).  Round 5 I wanted to grab another WR, but there was Ryan Mathews who will be seeing plenty of carries as only Woodhead will be pushing him, so I snatched him up as my flex, and was able to get Torrey Smith on the way back to help round out the RB/WR core.

I have one simple rule when drafting a running QB, and that is to make sure you back him up with a solid arm.  Now typically this would be an Eli Manning type fantasy QB, but I just couldn’t help myself with Stafford still sitting there and my RB/WR already locked up.  There was no reason to reach for a Greg Olsen/ Owen Daniels at TE, so Matt joined my squad.  Round 8 I added the TE, and from there on out it was all speculative picks.

I don’t like BGE, but you can’t go wrong taking him as a bench RB, along with 2 solid handcuffs in Woodhead and Rodgers.  I expect Tate to be the leading WR in Seattle this season, so I took a flier on him as well.

As I’m always saying, grab your DST and K in the final 2 rounds.  Why anyone thinks grabbing the Seahawks in the 7th round will win their fantasy league is beyond me, and I was able to grab the Texans and Matt Prater with my final 2 picks, both of whom should be top 10 quite easily in their respective positions.
