Dwayne Bowe
Commentary: As I said in the previous post, the QB run in round 3 made some good players available in the 4th. I would have liked to grab my second running back here, but all the guys I had pegged came off the board (Smith, Brown, Thomas, McFadden) before my pick. I didn't see good value in the leftover RBs, so I went for the best player available, WR Dwayne Bowe, to use as my flex (forgot to mention that the starting lineup includes 1 QB, 2 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB or WR), 1 K, and 1 D/ST). This pick also adds depth to my receiving corps, which is always a good thing in PPR leagues.

A lot of good players went off the board this round. I wouldn't have taken Bush and OchoCinco where they went, but I definitely see the logic behind those picks (Bush catches a ton of passes and OchoCinco's got Palmer back throwing to him). By this point, I'm pretty convinced that Bud (A Brush With Death) was set on having the comeback player of the year on his team. He took Tom Brady, Marques Colston, and Braylon Edwards (all good players that had issues for different reasons in 2008) in rounds 2-4. Just a funny detail I noticed while reviewing the draft and I'm 90% sure he'll have the CBPOY by year's end (unless he trades him). Good stuff, Bud. As Jeremy pointed out in the war room, your team finally doesn't look like an automatic victory. Everybody, please give Bud a round of applause.
