I don't see too many of these in here which is too bad...I love reading them.
Here's my first draft of the season.  Love all comments, good and bad. 

PPR.  Only 13 rounds.

6pts for TD passes

1-qb 2-rb 2-wr 1-te 1-flex 1-d 1-k

12 team PPR, Snake Draft, No keepers.  I had the 6th pick.

Antonio Brown slipped to me at 6, took Michael Thomas round 2(who I Iove), Kelce in round 3. So I ended up going all in on reception heavy guys at the top with pass catchers. Running backs is my weak spot, but tried to pick some guys up late hoping one hits, or become a solid flex.  How'd I do?

Starting Lineup:

QB:  Matt Ryan
RB:  Jay Ajayi, Royce Freman
WR:  Antonio Brown, Michael Thomas
TE:  Travis Kelce
Flex:  (Chris Hogan) or (Jamaal Williams) or (Devin Funchess)
K: Nobody Cares
D:Nobody Cares

Bench:  Theo Reddick, Jordan Wilkins, Corey Clement.
 (Whoever I don't start at flex is on the bench)

Thanks guys!

Brown 6th is rediculous. You are obviously very rb thin. 
Drafting this weekend and will try to go rb/rb as rb's get thin after Miller/Ingram. A few b4 them are placed incorrectly. I do like Bernard and White late.
Kelce is a great pick but I'm waiting till the near end for  a TE. - Kittle/McDonald/Eifert/Watson/Hooper should be around late

GL i'll post mine

GL Goggles.  Post your team.  I hope more people post their teams.  I always like seeing what people's opinions are on grading drafts.

Who went b4 Brown other than the top 4 rb's Gurley/Bell/Zeke /DJ?

If Hopkins did they also take Watson?

First round...

Gurley, Leveon, David Johnson, Zeke, Kamara, Brown, Saquon, Julio, Hopkins, AJ Green

Nobody in my league believes in Odell this year.  

The guy who took Deandre did not take Watson.  

Right now, I don't have any leagues with an open spot.  But I'm in an ESPN league that may not take place this year, so I'm interested in joining one more.

Kicker I get but Defense, nobody cares? 
I think Mack loses the starting job at some point.That I like.
Riddick in ppr is good..
Cory Clement is a good handcuff as I feel Ajayi will not hold up all season. So I guess Im on board with your bench.
Royce Freeman will be a workhorse stud.
Mahomes is an upgrade over Smith at qb so I love Kelce even more now.
Flex,not so hot.It'll be Jones not Williams after the suspension.
Other two are ok. I think you waited to long at qb,but hes serviceable.

You could of  had juju ,a golden Tate or even Cooper Kupp later in the draft with stats similar to Thomas.

Grade B minus

Like your TEs, especially Trey Burton

Even with Cohen,I still think Howard will get the ball a good amount +red zone carries.Nagy stated hes are 3rd down back.

Doesnt mean Cohen gets shorted. Guy can do it all. 
Defense is decent. Gl this year pisano

Love your team Goggles.  Leveon at 3rd is crazy, and paired with Howard is awesome.  People nervous about Baldwin...I'll take him all day, so I love that one.  Never been a Diggs guy, but can't argue with his production.  Love your flex options.  Problem is going to be which one to pick every week...lol.  I'd roll with Stills.  

I'm high on Matt Ryan this year.  I think his TD's last year were low, and I see him getting more.  I may be right or wrong, but I have him in most of my leagues.
