Draft results from 2010 Pros vs Joes FFPC Challenge

I am a Pro in the 7th Division-Charles Jeffersons Z-28s
The draft was held Thursday, July 29th, 9:00 pm EST

Here is my team

Matt Ryan ATL 8 (10.01)
Alex Smith SFO 9 (12.01)
Matt Hasselbeck SEA 5 (13.12) (Debated Josh Freeman TB QB-in hindsight I wish I had taken a younger QB3 in Freeman)

Knowshon MorenoDEN 9 (3.12)
Ryan Grant GNB 10 (4.01)
Ronnie Brown MIA 5 (6.01) (Debated Zach Miller TE OAK-regretting this now)
Fred Jackson BUF 6 (8.01)
Darren Sproles SDG 10 (9.12) (Debated going QB2 with Mcnabb and Palmer availabe-may regret this too!)
Correll Buckhalter DEN 9 (16.01)
Brandon Jackson GNB 10 (18.01)

Larry Fitzgerald ARI 6 (1.12)
Michael Crabtree SFO 9 (5.12)
Mike Wallace PIT 5 (7.12)
Jerricho Cotchery NYJ 7 (11.12)
Devin Thomas WAS 9 (14.01)
Nate Washington TEN 9 (17.12)
Joshua Cribbs CLE 8 (20.01)
Malcolm Kelly WAS 9 (26.01) (Or Ramses Barden NYG WR-only time will tell)

Antonio Gates SDG 10 (2.01)
Bo Scaife TEN 9 (15.12)

David Buehler DAL 4 (22.01)
Steven Hauschka ATL 8 (23.12)
Nick Folk NYJ 7 (24.01)

Miami Dolphins MIA 5 (19.12)
Arizona Cardinals ARI 6 (21.12)
Kansas City Chiefs KAN 4 (25.12)

Started strong but not securing a third TE ( I waited due to owning A Gates but it was too late as I grabbed Bo Scaife and the remaining TEs were on the same bye week as Gates) and a weak QB3 may be my downfall

Here are my opponents listed by Draft Order:
1. Richard Dunn - AZRich
2. Dave Zoll -
3. Jeff Gill - Fish
4. Roy Daniel -
5. Jason sternberg - Cinderella Story
6. James Hatfield -
7. Scott Brown - NJ Show
8. Ryan Schoon - Pigskin
9. Dale Messina - Redneck Teabaggers
10. Cory Bonini -
11. Ed Nolan - Gridiron Irishmen
12. Sam Hendricks -

The 2010 FFPC Pros vs Joes Draft Challenge concept is simple. Take a group of hard core FFPC fantasy players (the Joes) and pit them against a contingent of fantasy industry experts (the Pros). There are 96 teams participating (half pros and half Joes). The overall field is divided into 8 separate 'Divisions'. Each division of 12 conducts their own draft. All teams drafted are tossed into one master league to compete. The highest scoring team across all divisions is crowned the 2010 FFPC Pros vs Joes Draft Challenge Champion. One team wins, period.

The scoring system is of course the signature FFPC scoring (with 1.5 points per catch for TE). FFPC also uses dual flx positions and action scoring where any TD scored by a player counts. So all those kickoff and punt return TDs matter now.

It's a DraftExperts format which is essentially a "Best Ball" league where the system automatically fills out your weekly roster with your best performing players at each position. No waiver wire moves or setting of lineups by the participants. Once you draft your team of 26 players, you're administrative duties are done for the year. Just monitor the leaderboard as the year goes on.

What do they win? Originally it was just bragging rights with a claim to the title of the 2010 FFPC Pros vs Joes Draft Challenge Champion. But we now have tons of prizes or bounties on the table including my offerings:
1) FFGuidebook is offering a copy of "Fantasy Football Guidebook: Your Comprehensive Guide to Playing Fantasy Football" to any Joe that wins their Division.

Also, offering
2) a choice of either a copy of "Fantasy Football Tips: 201 Ways to Win through Player Rankings, Cheat Sheets and Better Drafting" or "Fantasy Baseball for Beginners" to any Joe (that blows) and comes in last in their division (since baseball may be better suited to their skills).
