All I gotta say is that looks like a screwed up first three rounds if you didn't know it was a keeper league.

Adrian Peterson will probably be a good value with the 30th overall pick.

And Jay Cutler at 22 is a miserable value

Depends on how the Bronco's do this year.. I suspect he's going to do better than everyone else expects.. and who would you have taken as a QB over Cutler?

Cutler would have been my pick too, considering which QB's were taken already.
I think he's a great pick for a keeper league for sure, and most everything I've read points to him having a great season.

Jay Cutler is the 5th best QB in the NFL? Really?

Anyway, even if he was the 5th best QB in the NFL there are several other positions where there are better players available than Cutler is at QB. Lets say he doesn't take Cutler, and someone else grabs him. There are what, 6 or 8 other QB's who are similar to Cutler? At least? Can you say the same at RB?

Even ESPN believes that the draft 2 RBs before anything strategy no longer works given current NFL scoring realities.

I would never say Cutler is the 5th best QB in the NFL, but he may end up being the 5th best Fantasy QB. Look at someone like Carson Palmer. Everyone swoons over him being the #3 or 4 QB in the league, and last year he threw a boat load of ints. not a LOT of TDs, and ended up being a mediocre fantasy QB. Being a good QB != being a good fantasy QB. I'm looking at it in terms of points, and I have a feeling he's gonna score a boat load and make very few mistakes.

Refresh my memory on how the keeper league draft works. I'm not going to be available tomorrow, and want to make sure I don't mess up the works.

Your 3 keepers/predrafts will already be on your roster. If you're going to let Yahoo's autopick system fill in your roster you should log into your keeper team and set up your own custom draft order. Without any customization Yahoo's system will automagically take the highest-rated player needed to fill a slot on your starting roster regardless of recent injuries or bye weeks. It'll take a kicker by Round 8 just to fill the empty spot on the starting roster even if better choices are available.
