I went into the RotoViz Dynasty League draft knowing I wanted to draft a young squad that would have a chance to dominate in the next couple of years, rather than win immediately. I was originally slotted to pick 9th overall in the 1st round of our veteran draft, but traded my 1st and 8th round pick to Mattek in order to move up to pick 1.06 (I also gained his 26th round selection.) My reasoning for wanting to move up to pick six is simple. Looking at the entire player pool, I ranked six players in my top tier and wanted to make sure I got at least one on my roster. In no specific order those players were: A.J. Green, Calvin Johnson, C.J. Spiller, Jamaal Charles, Doug Martin, and Julio Jones. As it turned out, only two of those players were taken in the five picks before me. But since I only gave up an 8th round pick, I was content with the trade. The way our league is set up, it is possible to start 5 WRs at a time, which was my plan at the start of the draft. Also, WRs tend to have a longer shelf-life than RBs do, so you can get longer levels of top production out of WRs than you can out of RBs. Here are a few things I liked about A.J. Green:
