It’s been a rough two weeks. In what I would call my “main league” I’ve watched what I felt was a playoff contender fall apart in the last three weeks, and those losses are going to cost me a chance to compete in the playoffs this year. It’s really more painful to be so close…and yet so far.
Needless to say, my list of players I won’t draft again may be growing after this season. I took some chances with this team on the board, and it definitely hurt me. But that said, I also held onto my drafted players too long.

Here’s who I’d go after. Obviously, if you have holes on your roster based on injuries to your star players, your priorities will differ.
