League 1 - 12 team, half PPR, SFLEX, full dynasty
QB: P Mahomes, J Herbert, J Love, D Thompson-Robinson
RB: A Ekeler, B Hall, R Stevenson, B Robinson, D Harris, D Vaughn
WR: J Chase, D Johnson, A Cooper, D Hopkins, Q Johnston, J Meyers, G Davis, R Doubs, J Reed, KJ Osborn, D Slayton, J Palmer, T Palmer
TE: M Andrews, I Likely, C Okonkwo, M Mayer
K: D Carlson
D: Buffalo Bills
I picked at #9. Was happy to find Quentin Johnston still there, added Reed and Mayer later.
Gave: B Purdy, G Pickens, DJ Chark, 2024 1st, 2nd (both project to be in 9-12 range)
Got: D Hopkins, 2024 1st (projected top 3)
League 2 - 12 team, full PPR, 1QB, full dynasty
QB: D Jones, B Purdy
RB: T Etienne, C Akers, K Gainwell, D Foreman, T Bigsby, Z Moss, Z Evans
WR: J Chase, J Waddle, M Pittman, J Meyers, Q Johnston, T Atwell, V Jefferson, KJ Osborn, D Slayton
TE: P Freiermuth, D Schultz, M Mayer, T Kraft
K: E McPherson
D: Denver Broncos
I picked at #3, but traded back to #6 in the first round (see below). Still got my target in Quentin Johnston. Added Tank Bigsby and Zach Evans later, as handcuffs, as well as Michael Mayer.
Gave: G Pickens, 2023 1.03
Got: C Akers, 2023 1.06
A controversial trade, but it gave me a much needed option on RB, albeit a risky one. I had no chance to get Bijan or Gibbs, so it was clear I’d go WR. Personally, I prefer Johnston over JSN and Addison, so trading back 3 spots was not much of a risk. Worst case, I would have added Anthony Richardson. I’m still happy about the trade, as I got my intended WR, and am not a Pickens believer any longer.
League 3 - 12 team, standard, 1 QB, full dynasty
QB: J Fields, D Jones, D Ridder
RB: K Miller, J Kelley, Z Moss, M Carter, Z White, K Hunt, E Hull
WR: D Adams, R Shaheed, T Atwell, J Reed, A Robinson, KJ Osborn, J Ross, K Boutte, K Philips
TE; S LaPorta, Z Ertz, J Ferguson
K: C Dicker
D: New York Jets
Yes, this is a horrible team. Took it over this offseason, after the owner had abandoned it. In 2022, he made a mid-seaon trade in which he traded his 2023 1st away for Zack Moss. Need I say more?
Most of the bench players are waiver pickups, as the team was full of retired players. I scooped up Kendre Miller and Sam LaPorta with picks I acquired in-draft, and Jayden Reed with another pick I had traded for.
Biggest offseaon trade:
Gave: J Waddle
Got: 2023 2.04 (S LaPorta), 2024 1st (early), 2024 2nd (early), 2025 1st, 2025 2nd, R Shaheed
I hated giving up Waddle, as he would have been cornerstone to build a new team around. But I had too little substance to do that, especially without 2023 picks. So I had to accept the offer and now have at least two 1sts and 2nds in 2024 and 2025.
Gave: D Pierce
Got: 2023 1.12 (K Miller), 2023 2.05 (J Reed), Z White
League 4 - 10 team, full PPR, 1 QB, 10 keeper league
QB: J Allen, J Fields
RB: N Harris, J Jacobs, R White, K Miller*
WR: A St. Brown, B Aiyuk, J Dotson, M Evans*, JSN*, G Davis
TE: D Goedert, C Okonkwo
K: D Carlson*
D: San Francisco 49ers*
The players marked with a * are the ones I acquired during the draft, the rest were keepers from last season.
This format is a bit weird, as you can keep 10 players, but have to give up their original draft round pick. Balancing cheap keepers vs. win-now players is quite tricky here.
