10 team std league, what is the best round to target Drew Brees?

I pick 3rd in a snake draft...

Hmmm.  Consensus of Oakland media says McGloin starts if Schaub can't go.  Don't want to subject Carr to an aggressive Rex Ryan defense with an unproven OL in game one. Looking at MJD right, left and up the middle three out of four plays until they work out their issues.

Manish is really talking up Nelson - hope he's not grooming a new "unnamed" source.

D. Thomas in the 2nd...

We can only hope they run a lot, but I doubt that's an optimal plan against this defense.

@jaygo McGloin is probably the best QB on that roster right now.

I think Nelson is too classy &/or media-savvy for that. I read his AMA on reddit, & he did a very good job of saying "the right thing" & came off as a nice guy more than an outright "phony" imo.

Plus, I believe he's a FA at the end of the year & idk how likely it is he returns.

@NYCPEinGermany He's going to be really fun to watch, can't wait to see him flying off the edge on a blitz on Sunday.

@levi @jaygo Just reporting what I read.  After 4-12, they're taking it slow and not putting future assets in harms way.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan I was watching a re airing of the last Raiders game on local TV, and the announcers kept mentioning over and over that the Raiders really don't hav #2-6 receivers.

A parking cone? Idk but supposedly the new guy is better in the slot than outside.

It would seem there is some thought behind them as the team lists 3 RBs as RB #1, but I agree they are not definitive.

5th behind Wilson might mean 4th outside, but format limits that.

Edit 4th outside

Man...another WR in the 4th...Cruz.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan 

If this was Haha Clinton-Dix PFF was writing about and someone said they wanted him over Pryor, we'd be hearing about how this is meaningless and how PFF grades for Safeties really aren't that accurate...

@jaygo  I like it. Although I wanted to see Rex send the house on the rookie and rattle him early and often.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan Nelson is just one of those good guys. He and his brothers are always volunteering in Haiti and stuff like that.

Yay...Chris johnson in the 5th!

@a57se It's a post about a Jets first round rookie who has had a great preseason, that's all.

@levi @jaygo They're worried sick about their OL and lack of depth at WR.  Sounds like a good match-up for us week one.

Filled out my roster with Justin Hunter as my 5th WR, Jeremy Hill as my 4th RB, the Jets D/ST and Nick Folk as my KICKER!!!


I like my team!

Didn't get everyone I wanted but should be very competitive!
