As you may see, my draft strategy was simple: load up on stud receivers and let the rest of my roster fall into place. I had my eyes on Larry Fitzgerald, but the asking price (this was an auction draft) proved to be too steep for me. I had my eyes on Bradshaw, Moreno, and Mathews from the beginning, I think they all qualify as B+ running backs who are serviceable fantasy starters. If the likes of Brandon Jacobs (whom I handcuffed to Bradshaw), Mike Tolbert, and Willis McGahee don’t vulture too many goal line carries, I should be set. Matt Ryan is going to be good, not great. I drafted Matt Schaub and quickly dealt him for Dallas Clark. My bench, besides Mathews, is fairly shallow, considering I am relying on a rookie, a Redskin, and a concussion-waiting-to-happen to produce when my stud wideouts have bye weeks.
Difference Makers win fantasy leagues, and I feel like I have three difference makers in my starting lineup and many fine complimentary pieces.
