What players are you willing to reach for this year just to make sure they are on your team?

none, although I find myself having a hard time passing on Eric Byrnes in the 5th round.

Not a fan of reaching myself, but I thought I'd chime in and agree with this poster that Byrnes falls a little too far in a lot of (but not all) drafts. I don't think anyone expects a repeat of '07, but 3rd round numbers seem like a decent bet to me.

keeper league I will reach for Kemp in rd 9 or Delmon in rd 10. if I don't get either of those I will reach for Longoria in something like 14-15. I want to get one new keeper for next year although I don't know for sure who it is yet.

Depending what kind of value I can get at certain picks I'd love to get young guys on the verge of taking that next leap like J. Hamilton, E. Encarnacion & C. Billingsley. But I won't reach too much.

I've been reaching for Weeks:
20 team 5x5 - 85th overall
12 team 5x5 - 118th overall

Just feel very strongly about him and that he will easily finish top 50.

I'm worried about his avg though. I think he'll hover around .250- .260 :-? :-?
But 20/20 is not outta the question with him
