PG going early almost like RBs, but starting a round later. Good drafting all around, my targets consistently taken and leaving me researching again at my pick.

I don't tank categories, though I could see tanking 1 in H2H sometimes. If you are tanking that much you are putting too much weight into last year's stats versus trying to take best talent. Also put yourself in a situation where your team is inflexible, can't adjust for injured players as easily or take advantage of unexpected player growth (suddenly dwight hits 70% free throw after miracle radiation accident).

He ain't lyin'. In the middle of four drafts right now and this has by far been the best. Even when it comes to some of the guys I like to have a semi-breakout (Hayward, Hawes, Splitter), I'm being forced to draft them right around where I have them projected. Just very little by way of value to be had at any point of the draft.

Mightily relieved to get Lowry at 6.04, I passed on PG again at 5.09 thinking one of Jennings, Hill or Lowry would make it back to me. I got away with it just. It seems like the PG's are spread out till half way through the 3rd (upto Lawson & Lilliard) & then there are none until mid/late 5th & then there's a run on the Dragic/Teague/Holiday/Lowry/Calderon/Hill tier.

If you pick near the turn this year it seems like you get the sweet spot of all the C's at the 1/2 turn & the PG's at the 5/6 turn.

I think the PG frenzy has made a couple of managers punt assists in the ROTO league draft.

I've gobbled up 3 PG eligible and 3 C eligible players so far in the draft. I don't consider Hill to be as true of a PG which is why I liked him over some of the other PG options around him during the draft. It should be interesting to see how everyone balances out their teams and if teams do really punt categories in Roto.

H2H rosters have been inputted, and the league is all ready to go. You can set your lineups now, and can pick up free agents as you please in a few days. ;-D

As a total aside, I'm glad my first injury happened to my last pick in the roto-draft. :-°

The draft slowed down a bit last couple days, let's pick up the pace folks. Unless of course my 2 guys I want are taken, then I don't care lol. Either way I'm not too thrilled with my team so far I must say. There's 2 teams I really like so far tho.

That's incredible value on Garnett!

Really wanted to pick him up but felt I needed to grab the two guys I selected for my team build.
