Your biggest draft mistake.

Recommended Posts

I saw this topic in another forum and thought I would post it here.

 

What was your worst draft mistake? Mine was drafting Cecil the Diesel in the 3rd round his rookie year. What was yours?

Well it wasn't really much of a mistake at the time, but I drafted Vinny Testaverde in my first season playing fantasy football (must have been like 1997 or so). He was a great fantasy QB (especially with this league's scoring) and I had one of the last picks in the first round. I knew I was getting a solid RB (ended up being Dorsey Levens), so I took Vinny to ensure I had a stud QB. The draft was up in the Bay Area (at the time, I was living in SoCal) and was on the Saturday before opening Sunday. I flew home Sunday morning, and once I arrived, I turned my cell phone on to hear a barrage of voicemails from my new league mates telling me that Vinny had gone down about 3 plays in with a severe leg/foot injury. He was out for the year. DOH! Fortunately, I had grabbed some "no-name" QB as my backup. Rich Gannon... who ended up having a stellar fantasy season.

 

Edit: Take that back, it was the 1998/1999 season, and he had come off a season where he had 3,200+ yards and 29 TDs to only 7 INTs. And apparently he did go 10-15 in that first game before getting hurt. Gannon ended up throwing for 3,800+ with 24 TDs that season.

GDB you reminding me of my worst. fn pick 2.02 and Stephen Davis is just sitting there, but noooo

 

The kicker is I was bashing Green ever since he was drafted by the Browns as a "who tf?" pick, and a bad one.

 

If only I could stop drinking on draft days.

2003. Through trades, I had the four and eleven pick in a ten team league.

 

Took Faulk at 4 and proudly announced at 11 "Green". Recorder: "Ahman?"

 

Me: "Nope, William"

 

Ouch both killed me. However, I had Horn and Holt and eeked into the playoffs.

Wow, there is some William Green :doah: :D in this thread. In 2003, I drafted Green as my number two back, and he was a disaster. I saved myself by getting DD off of waivers. By the way, I traded Green to some Browns homer for...get this...the Ravens defense! Swear to God! :D

2003- Willie Green in the Second 2.04. Thank God I got Jamal Lewis @ 3.08 and went to the SB.

 

2004- Barlow at 2.02, I was torn between him and Dom Davis. I got C.Brown later and it helped somewhat, but I still took last place for the first time.

 

Green and Barlow seem to be a similar thread here. So who's going to be the RB bust for Round 2 this year??? :D

 

Ahman Green and Brian Westbrook are my top two guesses.

My 1st draft ever, 1994, second round....Pete Stoyanovich. "Logic" being he will score a 160 points when the best running back might score 140 in our league.

 

What? All kickers score that much, oooooohhhhhh!

2003 - William Green in 2nd round.

 

Probably bigger than that was skipping Barry Sanders (2000 yards) to get Steve "I'm Batman" with a concussion Young.

Without question, drafting Peerless Price and Amani Toomer in the 04 campaign. Thank God Torry Holt played well or I would have missed the finals. :D
