How big is the league? Who did you take with your 2nd and 3rd picks? Miller and Martin?

10 team league, I had the #1 pick..Brown obviously #1, took Miller/Martin next turn, Watkins/Cooks, Hyde/Baldwin, Walker/Big Ben to fill out starters... Then the rest, not sure exact order just was picking who ever I thought had upside

Given your pick, I think it's pretty good. I might have tried to get a better backup or a 3rd qb. I do like Miller a lot. I had him the last two years and he always got a ton of YPC but never that many carries, so on a new team with more carries he could be a lot better. Martin I also somehow claimed off waivers last year because he had a really slow start. If he can keep that up you are looking good.

I am not sure how good Watkins can be but Cooks is good. Haven't looked deeply at Hyde yet. I do my drafts late so I haven't really researched some of those younger guys who may have different roles.

You should probably be pretty solid if your guys stay healthy but I'd have to see the other teams also. I usually wait as long as you did on QB and fill up RBs/WRs first and let everyone else get QBs, but the I take the next best two before they start picking up backups, so I usually have two starting quality qbs. Then I add more depth elsewhere.

I'm not big on Hyde really, but there was an RB run and he was best available to me due to he should be a volume back due to he's in a weak offense and didn't have a bye that lined up with 2 primary.

After researching more to get ready for my first draft, I like yours better than I originally thought. I hadn't realized Bortles was as good as he is.

Do you use espn, yahoo or nfl.com?

My money leagues are on ESPN, free keeper leagues on yahoo and doing a new league off the fantasy section here on Fantrax.

This team is one of my money league teams on ESPN.

In the format, Bortles was the #7 scoring QB last season, he's got some good options to pass to. I expect him to regress some, but regardless view him as a solid backup to Ben.

And I've since dropped Howard and picked up James White.
