Just had my first/biggest draft of the season
« on: August 31, 2017, 09:44:29 PM »
12 team league.
Keeper league.
Can trade players for picks.

Here's my roster:

1 (4th) - LeSean McCoy, RB1
1 (11th) - DeMarco Murray, RB2
2 - Amari Cooper, WR1
3 - Keenan Allen, WR2
3 - Demariyus Thomas, WR3
4 - Jordan Reed, TE1
5 - Rob Kelley, RB3
6 - Delanie Walker, TE2
7 - Tom Brady, QB1 (Keeper pick)
8 - Jonathan Stewart, RB4
9 - Andy Dalton, QB2
10 - Adam Thielen, WR4
11 - New England, DEF1
12 - no pick, traded away
13 - Matt Prater, K1
14 - no pick, traded away
15 - Tyreek Hill, WR5 (Keeper pick)

I somehow ended up with the #1 receiver of all four AFC West teams.

And two tight ends.



Anyway, my FAVORITE PICK: Adam Thielen in the 10th round of a PPR league. I think he has really good potential if I need a WR fill in.

And LEAST FAVORITE PICK: Jonathan fucking Stewart at all, much less in the 8th, even as my RB4. God, running backs are fucking hard to come by this year. That's why I went McCoy at #4 over Julio Jones and DeMarco at #11 over, say, Jordy Nelson. I knew the pool was going to dry up FAST and virtually everyone after the first round is some level of a sizable gamble. I wanted to hedge my bets on guys guaranteed to at least do something.


I'm not upset about this team. I feel okay. I should at least be in the hunt all year.

I would keep Howard. I think Kelvin is just more of the same in regards to the WR talent you already have, and Ingram is a mid-range RB2 in that offense. Plus, AP is going to be nipping at his heels and taking snaps away all season, particularly around the goalline. Howard, by virtue of having so-so starting and rookie QBs becomes an RB1 bellcow due to workload.

That's what I was thinking. KB burned me last year. After the first 4 games he hardly got any targets. And I figured Ingram would be sharing the work load with AP.

I'm hoping he smokes SF week 1 so that I can try and package him with a QB & Lamar Miller (2 qb league) to either of the guys that drafted Le'veon & David Johnson in my $$ league. Both need QBs and other help. Fingers crossed!

So how have ya'll done so far. I'm 1 and 1. Only reason I lost my second game is because I over thought my line up. I also lost Greg Olsen.

I'm 2-0 in my $$ league. Unless my team just falls apart, I'll be 3-0 after this week. The guy I'm up against has lost a bunch of players to injury; Allen Robinson, David Johnson, Cameron Meredith and Luck all taking up space on his bench (along with Jeremy Hill & McFadden, the wrong handcuff for Elliot). I'm a 40+ favorite; it's going to be brutal.

My lineup for this week (2QB PPR league):
QB: Derek Carr
WR1: Antonio Brown
WR2: Dez Bryant
RB1: Devonta Freeman
RB2: Darren Sproles
TE1: Jason Witten
WR: Kelvin Benjamin
WRT: Jordan Reed
QWRT: Carson Palmer
DEF: Rams
K: Prater

I've got Manning, Brandon Marshall, Doug Martin, Lamar Miller, Matt Forte & KC DEF. on the bench. Witten in the TE slot in case Reed can't go, and then I'll sub Miller in. I'm hoping Watson can pull a Dak and become threat so that Miller isn't facing stacked boxes all year. Manning & Marshall are killing me, though. I didn't think the Giants O-line was THIS terrible, and I figured Beckham would draw a lot of attention, freeing Marshall up. Johnson getting hurt has knocked Palmer down a few pegs. My team is solid enough (I'm currently 2nd) that I think I'll be in the hunt again at the end of the year, but just enough issues to keep it interesting.

I ended up making that trade for Ingram and Benjamin. I’ve also got dez Bryant and the Rams defense like you too.


My starting lineup is
Drew Brees
Tyrod Taylor
Marshawn Lynch
Jacquizz Rodgers
Dez Bryant
Kelvin Benjamin
Michael Crabtree
Matt Bryant
Kyle Rudolph
Rams Defense.


Only questioning I’m doing is Chris Carson, Larry Fitzgerald, Mark Ingram, and American Abdullah on the bench.  Not sureif I should switch any of them out.
