My MFL10 Rosters

Team I - March
Top 3 (75, 20 10)
8H Slow Draft
Draft spot - 1

QB - Alex Smith, Tyrod Taylor, Josh McCown

RB - Todd Gurley, Derrius Guice, Isaiah Crowell, Samaje Perine, Demarco Murray, Frank Gore

WR - Brandin Cooks, Amari Cooper, Cooper Kupp, Will Fuller, Nelson Agholor, Terrelle Pryor

TE - OJ Howard, Cameron Brate, Tyler Kroft

TD - Tennessee, Atlanta

Thoughts on my team:

Positive - WR corp is solid mix of upside and safe floor.

Negative - Loss of Guice & Murray means my RB depth is lacking. Had to use 3 TE by necessity by pairing Howard & Brate. Not sure why I took McCown in Rd 20 instead of 3rd TE - maybe because of Taylor concerns. No proven WR1 and only Gurley as RB1.

Not optimistic this team can finish top 3

Team 2 - March
Classic ($100, $5)
4h Slow Draft
Draft Spot - 10

QB - Marcus Mariota, Alex Smith, Blake Bortles

RB - Derrius Guice, Nick Chubb, Isaiah Crowell, Samaje Perine

WR - Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, Amari Cooper, Cooper Kupp, Paul Richardson, Josh Doctson, Donte Moncrief

TE - Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Austin Hooper, Adam Shaheen

TD - Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Tennessee

Thoughts on my team:

Positive - WR is dominant, but it has to be to cover the weakness at RB

Negative - RB is screwed unless Crowell can be at least a high RB2, never go so bare at RB this early in process. Should have used at least one of the 3 spots on TE/QB on RB instead.

Boom / Bust Zero RB strategy that was badly executed.

Team 3 - June
Classic
8H Slow Draft
Draft Spot - 5

QB - Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz

RB - Marshawn Lynch, Giovani Bernard, Doug Martin, TJ Yeldon, Peyton Barber, Kalen Ballage

WR - Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Sammy Watkins, Josh Doctson, Christian Kirk, James Washington

TE - Travis Kelce, Jack Doyle

TD - Cincinnati, Atlanta, Oakland

Positives - 2 Potential QB1s, Loaded at WR, Good TE, Pittsburgh WR stack could mean I'll have a WR1 any week.

Negatives - Wasted a pick on Homer D. Should have waited longer on 2nd TE

One of my favorite drafts, how a "zero RB" draft can be executed successfully (Lynch Rd 7, Gio Rd 10 only RBs in 1st 10) with a little luck

Team 4 - August
Classic
8H Slow Draft
Draft Spot - 10

QB - Andrew Luck, Jameis Winston, Ryan Tannehill

RB - Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, Isaiah Crowell, Peyton Barber, TJ Yeldon, Doug Martin

WR - Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, Amari Cooper, Brandin Cooks, Jordy Nelson, Keelan Cole

TE - Eric Ebron, Jared Cook, Nick Vannett, Tyler Kroft

TD - Atlanta

Positives - Once again loaded at WR, and have a couple of WR that could outproduce their ADP

Negatives - plenty of Question marks at RB, TE and QB, not to mention only 1 TD. In my defense I forgot which round it was and took a 4th TE I did not really need - lesson being stay focused.

I had not planned to take 3 QB, but figured if Luck got injured before (and who knows with Indy O-Line) Winston got back, my season could be over before it started. If all the pieces come together this could be fun to watch - but dont expect miracles.

Team 5 - August
Top 3
Private 8H Slow Draft
Draft Spot - 3

This was a private MFL10 I created - recruited owners from DLF and my dynasty leagues to fill. I'll post the other teams later on.

QB - Alex Smith, Jameis Winston

RB - Le'Veon Bell, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Bilal Powell, James Conner

WR - Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Kelvin Benjamin, Chris Godwin, John Ross, Dante Pettis

TE - Travis Kelce, Kyle Rudolph

TD - Seattle, Kansas City, NY Giants

Positives - Well Balanced at most positions except WR, didnt have to spend a lot of draft capital on QB and got Bell insurance at a late round pick

Negatives - I do not have a single WR with a safe history of production (except Cooper?) - maybe instead of owning the entire Cleveland backfield I should have added another WR! Especially since I spent a fair amount to lock it up haha.

This was one of my favorite slow drafts - always nice to compete against people you know rather than anonymous MFL10 drafters. Due to draft position and / or how draft plays out, I usually am not in a position to draft RB heavy and try a WR Zero strategy, but this time I was able to and lets see how it plays out. If Cooper can be elite, dividends could be enormous.

Team 6 - August
Classic
4H Slow Draft
Draft Spot - 6

QB - Cam Newton, Blake Bortles, Ryan Tannehill

RB - Joe Mixon, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson, Giovani Bernard, James Conner

WR - Deandre Hopkins, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kelvin Benjamin, Keelan Cole, Chris Godwin, Christian Kirk

TE - Travis Kelce, Kyle Rudolph

TD - Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Cincinnati

Positives - Solid at all positions, Conner could potentially be a steal.

Negatives - if Cleveland or Cincinnati offences struggle too much this season, this team will be in trouble. Could have gone with more RB depth instead of 3rd QB.

Not quite sure how this will play out - but like the balance between having a "stud" at each position with plenty of upside options.

Team 7 - August
Top 3
Live (1m clock)
Draft Spot - 4

QB - Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, Derek Carr

RB - Joe Mixon, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, CJ Anderson, Corey Clement, TJ Yeldon, James Conner

WR- Antonio Brown, Marvin Jones, Devin Funchess, Jordy Nelson, Christian Kirk

TE - Travis Kelce, Mike Gesicki

TD - Houston, Carolina, Miami

Positives - Potential for strong production at each position

Negatives - RBs could be dicy, no proven backup TE, probably didnt need 3rd QB, so should have taken just Carr and avoided Winston.

MFL10 lives are a little different beast than the slow drafts - firstly you have that feeling of being sniped getting intensified and 2ndly you have to have more focus or a strong draft plan going in, than you do with a 4/8 H draft where you can take a few min to think out how you see the next couple of rounds playing out.

Finding myself, when time is running out, going after the familiar players, for better or worse.

Team 8 - Early Sept
Top 3
Live
Draft Spot - 12

QB - Jameis Winston, Derek Carr, Ryan Tannehill

RB - Leonard Fournette, Marshawn Lynch, Nick Chubb, Giovani Bernard, TJ Yeldon, James Conner

WR - Odell Beckham, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Jarvis Landry, Devin Funchess, Sammy Watkins, Kelvin Benjamin

TE - Eric Ebron, Nick Vannett

TD - Kansas City, Tampa Bay, San Francisco

Positives - Happy with my strength at RB & WR, Should be able to get decent results from QBs

Negatives - Very light at TE

I had not planned to go Zero QB or TE but that was the way the draft played out - especially as RBs went fast and furious, especially in the first 5 rounds

Team 9 - Early Sept
Top 3
Live
Draft Spot - 6

QB - Andrew Luck, Patrick Mahomes, Jameis Winston

RB - Joe Mixon, Lamar Miller, Giovani Bernard, Isaiah Crowell, Doug Martin Spencer Ware

WR - Deandre Hopkins, Amari Cooper, Sammy Watkins, Will Fuller, Kelvin Benjamin, Brandon Marshall

TE - Jimmy Graham, Austin Hooper

TD - Arizona, Atlanta, Seattle

Positives - Feel it is a solid balance of safe & high upside options. No real weaknesses

Negatives - My QBs while not a weakness due to volume, could be more Bust than Boom

This was the 1st draft done after the McKinnon news came out, and it was interesting and amusing to watch both Breida and Morris go in the 6th round. This was a live draft but 1 owner did not show - so the worst anyone else will do is likely 11th, as that team is pretty awful (I'll post later). I feel confident about this teams chances of a top 3 finish.

Team 10 - Early Sept
Top 3
Live
Draft Spot - 4

QB - Jared Goff, Jameis Winston

RB - Joe Mixon, Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson, Giovani Bernard, James Conner, Latavius Murray, TJ Yeldon

WR - Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marvin Jones, Kelvin Benjamin, Cordarelle Patterson

TE - Eric Ebron, Austin Hooper

TD - Carolina, Seattle, Tampa Bay

Positives - For a draft where I almost felt forced to go Zero RB, am pretty happy with my RB depth. My WR Corp is very deep (for a MFL10) and I honestly feel I have 5 WR that could finish top 24.

Negatives - To ensure RB depth, had to sacrifice at QB/TE and while Goff looks safe, if he goes down it could be disaster. Same at TE - one injury away from what could be trouble.

I said I felt "forced" to zag away from RB and that was in part because 34 of the top 72 (1st 6 rounds) picks were RB. RBs that I was used to seeing in 1 round seemed to be going 1 to 1 1/2 rounds higher. So I loaded up at WR, and took the later backs I liked and then filled the TE/QB positions. Honestly cannot say I dislike the result - dont think its an elite team but I think it has promise.

Here is the roster of the team that did not "show"

QB: Carson Wentz, Ben Roethlisberger

RB: Saquon Barkley, LeSean McCoy, Nick Chubb, Samaje Perine, DeMarco Murray

WR: Keenan Allen, Brandin Cooks, Alshon Jeffery, Devin Funchess, Robert Woods, Devante Parker, DeSean Jackson, Dede Westbrook, Dez Bryant, Marquis Lee, Martavis Bryant

TE: Vance McDonald

TD: Detroit

So as you can see - the team has decent starters, but absolutely no real depth outside of WR, and even the WR depth is partially wasted on retired or injured players. Basically 4 wasted picks, and a couple of meh others.
