    Yes that's the biggest steal of a trade ever.
    As commish, I would veto.

    #1 pick should be Aaron Hernandez. Trust me, he is a lock.

    PPR; QB, RB-2, WR-2, Flex, TE, D , K

    My team is :
    Newton
    RG3
    Reggie Bush
    Chris Johnson
    Alfred Morris
    Mcfadden
    Vareen
    Woodhead
    Fitzgerald
    J. Nelson
    Cecil Shorts
    Tavon Austin
    Sudfield
    Packers
    Gould

    Thoughts?
    Pretty solid. A bit thin at WR, but your RBs are pimped out Cosmo Kramer style.

    Kind of a rough WR corps, but I'd say Hartline as the WR3.

    For a 16-team draft your WRs are insane. Especially with Gordon in your pocket as well. Nice work. I assume you'll start Cam in place of Vick? I know the matchup isn't great but Vick is pretty sketch.

    I've never done a 10-team league, so no real clue how this measures up. Looks fantastic but I assume with just 10 teams everyone's pretty stacked.

    Obviously late on this, but I'd have suggested Charles then Martin depending on who's there. Foster's always injured and Tate is ready to start taking carries away from him even when he's healthy.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is a total over-use of the veto power in fantasy football?!? It's ridiculous..
    Totally agree.

    14 team snake draft PPR league. "A Handful of TD's" 4th place in draft order.

    QB - Tom Brady
    WR - Eric Decker
    WR - Antonio Brown
    RB - Jamaal Charles
    RB - Stevan Ridley
    TE - Tony Gonzalez
    W/R - Lance Moore
    K - Justin Tucker
    D/ST - Denver
    BN - Vick Ballard (RB)
    BN - Joique Bell (RB)
    BN - Andre Roberts (WR)
    BN - Jeremy Maclin (WR) *** This was a total mistake, didn't realize he was injured until 3 seconds after I had him drafted. Big LOL moment, at least it was late in the draft. Already on the waiver wire to have Kendall Wright replace him.
    BN - Terrele Pryor (QB)
    BN - Jacoby Jones (WR)

    Yahoo report card indicated it was a B+ worthy draft, good enough for 3rd place based on points projections.

    WR - Sidney Rice

    Now that The League's new season has aired, I can officially say that FF season is upon us. Good luck to you all tomorrow.

    Both look really good, but I think I like your roster in the 14-team league better than the 12-team league. How'd that happen?

    Nice stuff.

    Vetoes should not be used for competitive reasons. Only time I see them as valid is preventing obvious collusion. Neither of these example were anything close to what I would consider obvious.

    The D.Thomas + Wilson for Welker is a one sided trade, but if you think Welker is going to be Mannings #1 target, and you think Wilson will lose carries (especially goalline work) when Andre Brown comes back the trade becomes less lopsided. As for throwing Fred Davis in there, maybe he thinks he will be a top TE. Basically, the trade is bad, but justifiable as just a bad trade, not collusion.

    The A.J. Green for Lamar Miller and Miles Austin trade is less one sided, and justifiable if you think Miles Austin will come back healthy and Lamar Miller will be the workhorse he is projected to become for Miami. It is a depth for top talent type of trade.
