Fantasy Football Draft Help

Outstanding first four rounds. LT/Smith/Holt is golden for your first three rounds; Smith in particular should have been long gone. I would have passed on a TE in the 5th, as I think there are several late options worth taking, and probably went QB with a Hasselbeck-type if the top 6 were off the board.

You definitely need a solid backup-QB for Leinart.

How did the rest of the draft go?

My team:

QB: Matt Leinhart
RB: LaDanian Tomlinson
RB: Deuce McCallister
WR: Steve Smith
WR: Torry Holt
WR: Benard Berrian
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Stephen something or other for NE....I missed the last 2 rounds and got auto drafted him and my DEF
DEF: Panthers

BN: Steve McNair, Ahman Green, Fred Taylor, Turner (backup for LT)....I think I need a to drop a bench RB for a WR backup or two...

I was offered Kitna for Leinart but I think I prefer Matt...

Thoughts on the overall draft and how to improve? I know I made a few mistakes, but all in all I think it could have been worse.

Take the deal if it is Kitna straight up for Leinart, he is a much better option.

If you are looking for another WR, I would look into acquiring Vincent Jackson. He was probably drafted, but if he wasn't pick him up asap. He plays for the Chargers and a lot of people are thinking with Norv Turner running the offense, this very athletic 3rd year wr will have a breakout year. He is getting a lot of sleeper hype, but I personally think it's legit. You should be able to get him for relatively cheap.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Made the deal for Kitna. Considering my lack of fantasy football experience it went pretty well. Perhaps I reached for Gonzalez, but my QB problem just got lessened by the Kitna trade. ;-D

I like it overall. Don't try tinkering too much; that's the type of team that can win the title.

Nice draft but you definitely need WR depth. Holt's knee surgery has not gone well and he might be troubled by it all season. There's a chance that he might not be ready for the season opener and the surgery was more than 6 months ago :-o I'm avoiding Holt in all of my leagues and I have knocked Bulger down a few spots b/c of this.
