Looking Back at Last Season

The following is the draft recap of last years Finals matchup in my 12 team league.  Then you will see what the teams final roster looked like during the Championship week


Sixty Eight Draft
1. (1) Adrian Peterson
2. (24) Aaron Rodgers

3. (25) LenDale White - Dropped
4. (48) Eddie Royal - Dropped
5. (49) Hines Ward - Traded
6. (72) Lance Moore - Dropped
7. (73) Kellen Winslow
8. (96) Torry Holt - Dropped
9. (97) New England - Dropped
10. (120) Joe Flacco - Traded
11. (121) Rashard Mendenhall - Dropped
12. (144) David Akers
13. (145) Miles Austin - Traded
14. (168) Chester Taylor

Final Roster
Aaron Rodgers (GB - QB)
Adrian Peterson (Min - RB)
Jamaal Charles (KC - RB) - Waivers
Matt Forte (Chi - RB) - Via Trade
Mike Sims-Walker (Jac - WR) - Via Trade
Kellen Winslow (TB - TE)
Laurence Maroney (NE - RB) - Waivers
Bernard Berrian (Min - WR) - Waivers
Kevin Boss (NYG - TE) - Waivers
Josh Morgan (SF - WR) - Waivers
Kevin Walter (Hou - WR) - Waivers
Chester Taylor (Chi - RB)
David Akers (Phi - K)
Green Bay (GB - DEF) - via Trade

Only 5 players from the original roster.  Even with 2 of his first 4 picks being TERRIBLE and trading away Miles Austin and Hines Ward, he was able to make the right moves at the right time.  And that is what its all about.  Sometimes you gotta make a move even it means trading away a top 10 receiver.
 
 
Keithy Biceps Draft
1. (6) Matt Forte - Traded
2. (19) Peyton Manning
3. (30) Greg Jennings - Traded
4. (43) Tony Gonzalez
5. (54) Santonio Holmes - Traded
6. (67) Ray Rice
7. (78) Steve Breaston - Traded
8. (91) Tim Hightower - Traded
9. (102) Sidney Rice - Traded
10. (115) Miami - Dropped
11. (126) Ahmad Bradshaw - Dropped
12. (139) Mason Crosby
13. (150) Vernon Davis - Traded
14. (163) Mark Sanchez - Dropped

Final Roster
Peyton Manning (Ind - QB)
Matt Ryan (Atl - QB) - via Trade
Ray Rice (Bal - RB)
Brandon Marshall (Mia - WR) - via Trade(before 20 catch game)
Hines Ward (Pit - WR) - via Trade
Tony Gonzalez (Atl - TE)
Jerome Harrison (Cle - RB) - Waivers
Brandon Jacobs (NYG - RB) - Trade
Todd Heap (Bal - TE) - via Trade
Davone Bess (Mia - WR) - Waivers
Kenny Britt (Ten - WR) - Waivers
David Anderson (Hou - WR) - Waivers
Mason Crosby (GB - K)
San Francisco (SF - DEF) - Via Trade

Only 4 players left on my team from the draft.

Both of us finished the season at 7-6 and while other teams had better records, we won when we had too

Unfortunately Sixty Eight came away with the Championship and the ca$h money as Adrian Peterson rushed for 2 TDs against the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Final Score

(4) Sixty Eight 85.39

(3) Keithy Biceps 76.44

There were plenty of poor draft choices made as there are every season.  How do YOU recover from a bad draft?  Play the waiver wire(Jamaal Charles)? Make lots of trades? Sit on players you hope will break out(Ray Rice)? Trade players after consecutive big weeks (Sidney Rice/Miles Austin)?  What are some of your best/worst moves from last season?
