That was rapid... Was mostly reading gigantosaurus... So some of that was automatically draft.... Couldn't quite tell if it was taking its queues from my pick list properly or not.

Also not having done this before I didn't know how many defenses I needed

Generally, just one. You're mostly better streaming them anyway imo

Long season Jim... Plus with 4 players there is plenty of transfer /trade business to be done.

I was quite pleased with my auto-draft apart from at QB. Devonta Freeman and both Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr.

Entertaining trades for Andrew Luck (especially if anyone has a spare QB *cough* BlackBat *cough*)

Pretty hard not to end up with some great players with 4 teams :-)

Looked like it might have been a lot closer than that for a while.

Yeah... Jordy Nelson getting injured without scoring didn't help... Neither did my inability to draft a tight end who can catch a football.

The first week was tight though. Could have gone any way those results.
