I don't have the exact roster (I am sure I could look on Yahoo league history but I am too lazy). My best draft was 2004.

I drafted Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, and got Brandon Stokley off waivers in week 1. I got triple points all season long except for the bye week (where I was screwed). My league also did 1 point per reception which was excellent for me and I also traded for Daunte Culpepper right after the draft

I tried the above strategy a few years later and drafted Tom Brady, Randy Moss, and Wes Welker with 3 of my first 4 picks. That was the season Tom Brady tore his ACL. I gambled... I lost.

My best draft was that someone set up a money league and put in 1 point for every 5 return yards. I noticed this so set up my prep according. Plus the league had IDP so I picked CBs that did kick returns and punt returns.

After the 1st week everyone complained and wanted to change the rules because they drafted like a normal draft. Everyone was going to change it but I argued how ****ed that is since I was the only one who paid attention to the rules and stats.

2008 I drafted Philip Rivers in the 10th, Matt Forte in the 13th and Chris Johnson in the 15th and they were the 3 key cogs in my championship.

Last year was the best draft I have ever had

1st rnd. Calvin Johnson - Record breaking year at WR
2nd rnd. T. Rich - Touchdown machine despite low ypc
3rd rnd. Peterson - Historic season

Was also able to grab Mike Williams and Randall Cobb later on in the draft, both had 1000 yards and 9 and 7 TD's each.

Nope, 10 team. Look at the pre-draft rankings of that year. http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/nfl/...l-pre12-top100

I got crazy steals.

Haha that's awesome. So many times people don't pay attention to the rules or stat breakdowns.

I assume you won the league?
