    Think Patto and to a lesser extent Shah are a round too early

    Yeah I'm willing to say there's like 7-8 better quicks than Patto. And a few bowling all-rounders for good measure.

    Shah's a little bit different, but again a few other spinners are at least as good if not better.

    I thought Yasir was an interesting pick in that Dan knew he couldn't get the best bat or the best quick, so he tried to get his advantage elsewhere. You can make an argument for spinners equally as good as Yasir, but he's by far the best leg spinner -- only Cremer out of all the other leggies in the world actually holds his place consistently. It wouldn't have been my pick but I can see the logic there.

    I'm guessing Patto was just a bit of a fan pick, spurred on my "assume they aren't injured" comment in the info post. Assuming Patto isn't injured is a pretty glorious thought. Probably still a bit early but I reckon he's an easily justifiable Round 2 pick if not quite a Round 1-er, so I it'll work out fine. I don't imagine we'll be sitting around at the end of the season talking about how Patto flopped. Unless he gets sim-injured.

    No horrible picks yet, although I guess there usually aren't in Round 1.

    I know Patto is a definite gamble, suspect he will either be an absolute weapon or fall over injured early, so pretty much like real life then.

    There are usually horrible picks in Round 2. I'm looking forward to it.

    Vernon at the bottom of the round is value.

    Yeah I was actually expecting him to be first or second quick picked because of his batting.

    Yeah, I went first and was doing a toss up between Kohli, Philander and Cummins. Surprised they lasted that long although I guess people are picking favorites and such.

    That's what R1 is for...

    Taylor a pretty questionable pick for Round 2. Suppose there's not a lot of batting depth though.
