Review My Draft

Discussion in 'Fantasy Football Advice' started by wide right, Jul 21, 2007.

    Pick up Clark or Baker. I may have read that Olsen may have gotten dinged up recently for Chicago. Grossman has gone to Clark in clutch situations last year.

    And I wouldn't drop any of your backup WR's. I would drop your lowest rated defensive player. Mathis maybe a better pick up at DB as well (60+ tackles & 8 INTs last year).

    Yahoo league, 8 teams, snake draft, pick 8...

    1. (8) Brian Westbrook RB
    2. (9) Laurence Maroney RB
    3. (24) Reggie Wayne WR
    4. (25) T.J. Houshmandzadeh WR
    5. (40) Jerious Norwood RB
    6. (41) Vince Young QB
    7. (56) Santana Moss WR
    8. (57) Vernon Davis TE
    9. (72) Carnell Williams RB
    10. (73) Bernard Berrian WR
    11. (88) Santonio Holmes WR
    12. (89) Matt Leinart QB
    13. (104) Robbie Gould K
    14. (105) Carolina DEF
    15. (120) LenDale White RB (drafted just for a laugh, dropped and picked up James Jones, GB WR)

    I know I had a couple reaches, and I took Leinart over Cutler, but I feel confident that the risks I took have a good chance of paying off. Leinart I think will have a big season.
    I know, drafting a kicker that high is somewhat silly, but with only 8 teams there are still a lot of good players left on waivers, I don't think I could have drafted anyone in his place that I could not get similar production from off waivers if need be, and IMO having a decent kicker could be key.

    I hate 8 team leagues. Everyone gets a good team and stars are always available on waivers. No fun in that. Young went too early. In round 6 of a 8 team league you should have gotten a better QB. He's essentially the same as Leinart who you got 6 rounds later. Carnell Williams went way too early. Your WRs are kick butt. So much so that I'd rather have LenDale than Jones.
  4. Walnuts

    Walnuts All-Pro

    Yeah I agree about an 8 team league, it seemed way to easy to draft a good team. It's just with some people on a smaller FB fansite, I think initially we had 16 people, and the head guys decided to split it into 2 8 team leagues rather than one 16 teamer. Now I'm in the 8 team league and the other only has 6. I personally think it would have been a lot more fun and challenging to play a 14 team league myself.
    Thanks for the input, this is my first year playing FF, and actually this was my first team I drafted myself. Really White over Jones? I considered it, it was only a half joke pick, as he is the starter, and has actually looked sharp so far in preseason. I do have a feeling about Jones though, he might beat out Greg Jennings for the #2, it sounds like Farve and Roidgers really like him, and Driver's foot is bothering him. Hmmm. I don't think there is much danger of losing out either way, as I said, the waiver wire is deep with decent players.

    Alrighty... RATE MY TEAM(12 team league)

    Well I'm in my 12 team league(in which I had the #6 overrall pick).
    So its pretty hard to know who I'm going to get but heres my team.

    Comments and concerns are much appreciated:

    QB: Matt Hasselback
    RB: Rudi Johnson
    RB: Marshawn Lynch
    WR: Chad Johnson
    WR: Larry Fitzerald
    WR: Darrell Jackson
    TE: Jeremy Shockey
    D: Chicago Bears
    K: John Kasey


    Jerious Norwood
    Derrick Mason
    Ladell Betts
    JP Losman
    Brandon Marshall
    Leon Washington

    I think my team is alright.
    Its not as great as last year IMO when my team looked stacked but my team isn't horrible.

    My bench looks a little thin and I might need another RB if Lynch doesn't pan out for me.

    But what does everyone think of my team?

    Any suggestions or comments?
  7. Rips Vikes

    Rips Vikes GO VIKES!!!

    You have 3 backup RB's that are an injury away of being starters, that's not all bad. :)

    I would say you'll compete, good team. (watch the waiver wire for better backups)
  8. BroncoBJ

    BroncoBJ JayCutler4MVP!!!

    Thanks. And I agree. I figured I would draft some decent backup RBs and hope someone gets hurt or is ineffective.

    I really wanted Travis Henry and/or Jay Cutler

    I made a trade for Henry so lets see how that goes.
  9. Garnett

    Garnett Gritt Tuff

    That is a very good team especially for a 12 team league. Your WR's should all post 1000 yards this year. Even if Marshawn doesn't pan out (many are expecting very good things from him though) Ladell Betts will probably be starting in Washington and Norwood maybe the starter in Atlanta by then. JP Losman is a very solid backup. Do you feel you stack up against other competition well in your league?

    I am in 3 different fantasy leagues and here are my teams after waiver moves and drafting. Any feedback would greatly be appreciated. Teams 1 & 2 are standard leagues with 25 yards/pt passing and 10 yards/pt rushing and receiving. TD's are 6. Team 3 is an individual defensive player league with flex positions on offense as well. The scoring remains the same, but there are extra positions per team.

    Team 1:
    Marc Bulger
    Santana Moss
    Vincent Jackson
    Chris Chambers
    Brian Westbrook
    Reggie Bush
    Todd Heap
    Nate Keading
    Baltimore Def
    Bench: Marion Barber, Ladell Betts, Jake Delhome, Ben Watson, Mike Furrey, Buffalo Def

    Team 2:
    Carson Palmer
    Marques Colston
    Hines Ward
    Santana Moss
    Steven Jackson
    Willie Parker
    Jason Witten
    John Kasay
    Jacksonville Def
    Bench: Deuce McAllister, Marshawn Lycnh, Donte Stallworth, Eddie Kennison, Jake Delhome, Buffalo Def

    Team 3:
    Drew Brees
    Torry Holt
    Randy Moss
    Santonio Holmes
    Frank Gore
    Deuce McAllister
    Jason Witten
    Ladell Betts - Flex WR/RB
    Terry Glenn - Flex WR/TE
    Josh Brown
    Baltimore Def
    Bart Scott
    DeMarcus Ware
    Lance Briggs
    Quentin Jammer
    Rashean Mathis
    Bench: Jay Cutler, Antwan Randle El, Leon Washington, Correll Bulkhalter, Morlon Greenwood, Buffalo Def

    Any and all feedback is appreciated.

    BroncoBJ JayCutler4MVP!!!

    Out of all your teams I like team 2 the best. It seems well balanced. Also are you a closet Bills fan?? Having the Bills Defense in all 3 leauges ;)

    I'm in 3 leagues as well but the only one for money is the league I posted.

    I think my team will compete this year.

    I will post all the other teams later on today and see how you guys think I stack up.

    I have a thing about getting good WR's to help my team out.

    Last year I had Bulger, Larry Johnson, Chad Johnson, Torry Holt, Javon Walker, Antonio Gates, Jones-Drew, and then I rotated Kickers and Defenses via Waiver wire, and I had a few decent backups.

    So I dont think it matches up to last year but I had the #1 overrall pick and passed on LT. If I would have had LT I would have won the league.

    So this year my WR's are in a similar path and should help my team out.
    I hope Betts doesn't start since Portis is my all time fav RB.

    I really wanted to get Henry and or Cutler in my draft and I failed to get either of them.

    I'm excited about my team and this week is going to go by slow. :(

    I'm not a closet bills fan. They're just the highest rated defense from last year on my waivers. I am hoping team 1 does well. I have a lot invested in Santana Moss and Randy Moss. My WR's always seem to end up hurting my team in the end because I end up playing musical chairs with average players hoping I pick the right one. We'll see how it goes. I'm usually the most active in viewing the waiver wire so hopefully if I struggle, I can find the diamond in the rough.

    For a PPR league you got a great lineup. I'd be worried about Winslow though. Allen Rossum was released last week, wasn't he?
  14. Dougerrrr

    Dougerrrr Laus Deo

    Steelers picked up Rossum and I've got Broncos rookie te for backup.....winslow could do well for me. If he doesn't I have a backup...
  15. BroncoBJ

    What Rookie TE do you have?

    I didn't know the Broncos had any Rookie TE's this year.

    Dougerrrr Laus Deo

    My apologies....Scheffler is who I meant. Not a rookie...
  17. Garnett

    Garnett Gritt Tuff

    That is a well balanced team. Kitna should be a very good pick up at QB since you get points per completion as well as yards. All the experts believe his passing numbers should be very high, INT's not withstanding. What does your bench look like?
  18. BroncoBJ

    BroncoBJ JayCutler4MVP!!!

    Thats who I thought you meant. ;)
    Jay Loves to go his way but he is Number 3 on the depth chart now.
    I expect him to be #2 pretty soon though along with Marshall moving ahead of Stokely on the depth chart.
  19. Walnuts

    Walnuts All-Pro, 12 team league, autodraft (and this time I actually took the time to rank my players and set my draft order, although the computer did not seem to follow my drafting order by position at all, and my player rankings only sporadically...)


    Philip Rivers QB
    Laurence Maroney RB
    Jerious Norwood RB
    Deon Branch WR
    Randy Moss WR
    Steve Smith WR
    Randy McMichael TE
    David Akers K
    Vikings DST

    BN Jeff Garcia
    BN Brandon Jackson
    BN Eddie Kennison
    BN Chris Baker (NYJ TE)
    BN Seattle DST

    So I immediately dropped Baker and picked up Mike Furrey, I plan to do the same with SEA DST for...someone, lol, not sure who or what pos. yet.

    Grossman, Delhomme and T. Green are starting (for their team) qb's that are still out there, I'm thinking Grossman would be an upgrade over Garcia.

    Available RB's are pretty weak...Chester Taylor, Kevin Jones, Deshaun Foster, Mike Bell, D. RHodes for example

    WR's, same, the usual FA suspects. Any advice?

    Team Talk???

    This is my first year doing this, never have done it before, so honestly, I don't know what the FREAK, I am doing, I made my team, and everything, I'm doing the one off of, and I was wondering if you could give me some pointers / trades or w/e the hell.

    QB: Tom Brady
    RB: Cedric Benson
    RB: Thomas Jones
    WR: Braylon Edwards
    WR: Joey Galloway

    QB: Jason Campbell
    WR: Antwaan Randle El
    WR: Devery Henderson
    TE: Daniel Graham
    D: Redskins

    Honestly I don't know wtf I was thinking with having a backup D, it looks like I should have taken a different runner, oh well :icon_neutral:
