Alex,
You only have one defence and one kicker, what happens when they have their bye week?

You've got a few interesting picks. Why did you pick McFadden as early as you did?

I release someone to waivers, and then add a backup from the free agent list. There's a load of good DEF and K on there.

I think I am right that I intended to pick Reggie Bush, but the person in front of me got him, so I just picked my next best running back. Oakland might be getting better and if they are ever going to do OK then McFadden has to have a very good year.

Pretty happy with my team. Was planning on RBs in the first two rounds but just couldn't resist Megatron in the second. Managed to grab CJ2K in the third to accompany Doug Martin anyway, so pretty pleased with how that turned out. And even managed to add the obligatory Seahawk with my final pick!

McFadden hasn't played more than 13 games in any of his 5 seasons in the NFL, and his LT is injured. When he was healthy in 2012, McFadden had 3.3 yards per carry last year. I would have waited a lot later to pick him, personally. I only found all this out by doing some research into this kind of thing today. I'm taking this too seriously...

If memory serve me right me right Al Davis died in 2011 and mid way through the season the Raiders looked like they were really improving. 2012 was back to normal. They might be slightly better than people think, but frankly that isn't saying much!

My draft tactic: Google 'Best NFL player *position* 2013', click on the first link, try to pick the player who was nearest the top of their recommendations. Accidentally selected the wrong Manning, and had one auto-pick where I couldn't find a player the website recommended who hadn't already been picked, but was good fun all the same.

Tbh (and I really wish I was joking) I only stumbled across his name in the first place because I confused him with the Wikileaks guy.
