I cleaned out the guys last year on an NFL message board. I am happy to join up, I do not think I will go as well this year though. I have only played in Yahoo or ESPN leagues before which are normally easy to set up. Also is the draft going to be snake and scoring ppr?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

invite a mate from this site too i think we will need 2 more by head count

Brat Pack Inc. LLC shall field a side. We will probably be a great train wreck but we'll be there.

Darren Bennett still plays right?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Justin Bieber on June 24, 2010, 04:31:14 PM
I only know 1 player and thats because I play NFL on my PS2 ;D. Lets see if i can learn a little more during the weekend :P.

You can trade players with other teams during the season?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on June 24, 2010, 08:54:21 PM
yep its free, i reckon bennett retired a year or so ago, and yes it has free agent pools and trading between teams, there is plenty of goss on http://www.nfl.com/ to help u build a pre rank list, however the default pre ranked list wouldnt be too bad anyways, thanks for the support in getting this league up and running guys it will be fun ;)
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on June 25, 2010, 12:38:44 AM
Monday is a bit early for a draft. Training camp does not even start till next month. This is like picking a Supercoach team in January.

Monday is a bit early for a draft. Training camp does not even start till next month. This is like picking a Supercoach team in January.
massive free agent pool with an 8 team league + there r write ups on players available on the pre rank list and in draft aswell, did a draft last night and starting players didnt get picked up like vince young carson palmer matt cassel willis mcgehee steve slaton all good picks
STILL 4 SLOTS AVAILABLE
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on June 25, 2010, 12:18:02 PM
if u want the DRAFT TIME pushed back VOTE UP TOP, this is the latest possible afternoon time available otherwise the earliest possible night time is 11:30PM, the draft rooms shut between these times for maitnence

OK GUYS HERE IS AN 8 TEAM LEAGUE FOR US TO COMPETE IN
click this link http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/tools/join?leagueId=71549
password: fanfooty
currently the draft is live and scheduled for this monday 28th June at 14:00 EASTERN STANDARD TIME, this is an espn based fantasy game as the facebook app isnt up yet, il do one of those once its up, its a snake draft much the same as dreamteam pro, if u r unable to attend the draft it will still pick 4 u and u can pre prepare ur ranking list straight away so u will get the best available player u want so dont worry about not getting a team, we need 8 teams for the draft to ahead on this date if we dont get 8 it will just get pushed back until the league is filled. Hopefully we can make the draft and i will see u in the LIVE DRAFT on Monday ;D

A guy like Steve Smith is between a 2nd and 4th round pick just broke his arm. The guys have not even started hitting yet and to draft this early out before a season just seems a little early to me. Again this is not like your normal AFL fantasy football, because you move through draft boards one injury in camp can effect your entire team. Normally a draft should be held after the second pre-season game.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Justin Bieber on June 25, 2010, 05:22:40 PM
Could move it back to first July date. Will give people time to compose their list and see who they want.

I'm not really fussed on the time :).
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on June 25, 2010, 05:26:16 PM
Also the position settings are interesting. I have not played in a league where you start two QB's or have an offensive player utility.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Justin Bieber on June 25, 2010, 05:28:34 PM
Never played fantasy NFL before, so everything is new to me :P. Have 1 of my QB's in mind already. Hope nobody else steals him ;D.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

I'd rather Monday as I'd probably forget I'd even had a team otherwise  :P

You can use the same account but would be in another league. You'll have the team you have now in the first league and you'll draft another to compete in the 2nd league (if its up and running).

I'm up for round 2 if others are 8). Maybe make a few more spots available if others want to join :D.

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Justin Bieber on June 28, 2010, 05:08:12 PM
Defensive players as well sound great. More players to choose from :D.

Probably in a week or two. Let few others see if they want to join. Not sure on the numbers though. Maybe 10 or 12? I prefer evening but depends on when it would suit others as well.

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Justin Bieber on June 28, 2010, 06:40:41 PM
Go to your team page and there should be a little tab called pending trades (or something like that). You can see which players are involved there and reject/accept the trade. Can even check the trading block (i think) and see about trades there. Willing to negotiate if you don't like it ;).

First time playing so learning as I go :).

Pick One i can't remember the guys name. But he drafted Peyton Manning.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on June 28, 2010, 06:43:20 PM
this mite sound a bit dumb hellopplz but were do u except the trade

this league is way more intricate in the scoring department and has defensive players, plenty of bench slots injured reserve slots, i reccomend reading the scoring setup as it may affect the way u draft, hopefully we can fill the league and have an awesome experience ;D

But add something relevant to the topic posted in (so you don't get in trouble :P).

I started the 10 team Yahoo league up. Draft will be closer to the season, either last two weeks of August or first week of September before the regular season games begin. There are half points per reception so this changes the value of some players as well.

This is the custom url that is set up for the league

if the custom url does not work this is the league id 91913

I played in 6 leagues last season. I think the CBS site was the best one as far as researching players and getting stats but the Yahoo site is probably the best with the live score updates, especially if you are in multiple leagues.

5 spots left

I played in a league on Yahoo last year with a bunch of guys in the US. I just used the settings from that league for this one. The live scoring with Yahoo is great and and it was very easy to set up and draft on. I have not tried a CBS league yet but most of the guys I played with last year run money leagues on CBS.

You can pre rank players for the draft and make exclusions for guys who are listed in the ranking but are suspended or injured for the year. Maybe do that if you can not make it. We can also make the draft later that night if not many can make it.

I also offered you a trade for MJD. I think its fair, you give me MJD for the guy picked after you. You also get Spiller who is the starter for the Bills and I get LT who is the backup for the jets.

I would have kept Turner but I am having bye troubles thats why I am offering him up to you. He should be a star this year.

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on September 06, 2010, 05:53:19 PM
Martz usually likes to keep his TE's to block. Thats why the bears picked up Manamunela(sp) from the Chargers

There are at least 5 guys on waivers who could be starters. Also guys will need to drop TE's when byes hit. I currently do not have a backup at TE but I have Celek so I do not need to worry about it until week 8.

Post by: 8-6 Suited on September 10, 2010, 01:14:38 PM
I must say that I am shattered I missed the draft, had to take the missus for an ultrasound on the bun in the oven and forgot about it.


I did however order my preferences, didn't end up with very many of who I wanted. Not happy with the auto-pick of the quarterbacks it gave me though. Favre coming off surgery with no training camp showed in the first game today against the Saints, he just looked tired and slightly lethargic in the second half.

I did however want Bradon Marshall and Hakeem Nicks, both will be key targets as receivers. Also not displeased with getting Pierre Thomas as he is still the #1 RB and was used successfully tonight.

Got the arguably best kicker in the league in Gostkowski and one of the top 3 best defences in the 49ers.

Carson Palmer as a back up QB is alright, plus the Wes Welker like back up slot receiver Julian Edelman. And Shiancoe being the go to receiver for Favre as Sidney Rice is out with injury is always a welcome addition in TE. Shame I had him on the bench instead putting Dallas Clark out.



Anyways, good luck guys and we shall see how things turn out.

Gresham should be good. I stole Celek in the seventh, he is a beast. He had the most receptions for the Eagles last season. It may have been with McNabb but he still had great numbers with the games Kolb started last season. Also with the Eagles dodgy O-Line there will be alot of checkdowns to Celek and Shady.

yeah i was like  :o the only downside with dallas clark is he wont play round 16-17
Colts normally rest starters week 16 which is the final playoff game. I think the division might be closer this year and if they rest it will be week 17 only.

I think that's a good idea. I noticed that Pound the Rock is finally doing something with his team, not sure why, he's 0-6, so if he hasn't done anything so far, why bother now? But I could give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he hasn't had access to the internet the last 6 weeks. On the other hand, Aussie Hawks hasn't done anything but he's got a really good team and has gone 6-0, even with bye players not scoring, it's even worse when that happens :)

As I said, it's a pretty good effort to go 6-0 without looking after your team. Hopefully, for the rest of us, your team will go downhill when you do look after it  :). I think that you were lucky to beat me in week 5 though as I got the worst score for the season. I've had scores of 98, 171, 122, 122, 61, and 126. You beat me 78 to 61. Typical, just like making Chapman the captain the week he does his hammy.

With hawka26 fixing his team that leaves two inactive owners who I will change their teams for this weeks game.

Just checked again and he has Manning and Garcon on bye, I am watching the IR so if there is still no change, Kolb comes in for Manning and Thomas for Garcon. Gates might not play but thats not going to be known for a while so you might have to take the 0

I have 2 WR's who are unlikely and unable to find out, but my attempted trade is going to waivers due to the Thursday game. Any chance you can push it through early?

Nicks gone for 3 weeks who I am dropping for Breaston. Britt is likely to miss as he only just started jogging. Mike Williams is unlikely... Brandon Marshall has hamstring issues and will miss...

Leaves me with no WR's at all.


I have to be honest, missing the draft has screwed me over, shower QB, not bad otherwise but taking a lot of defeats.

Focused all season on my money leagues a lot more however though. 1st in 3 of them, 2nd in another. :D
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: 8-6 Suited on November 27, 2010, 01:54:10 AM
Therefore, if possible Mr Commish, can you put through the following trades.

Drop: Kenny Britt
Add: Kevin Hartline


This way I actually have WR's. -_-

Just a note, are you sure you want to drop Nicks? When he goes on to waivers anyone can pick him up and he will be healthy by playoffs.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: 8-6 Suited on November 27, 2010, 05:28:23 PM
Yeah I'm sure. No one will pick him up while he is injured, and its either him or Williams as I cant drop Marshall anyway. I'd prefer to keep Williams for now as he is likely only 1 week.

After NO had 400 yards on them, 370 passing I took a risk and went Kitna instead of Cassel who I was going to bring in as I didn't expect much from Palmer against the Lions...

Well I was right on one count, Palmer did do shower... However Kitna had a poor game himself. Should have gone Cassel -_-

Post by: Mat0369 on December 02, 2010, 08:24:56 PM
Need some advice for another league. I have been first for most of the season but my team has decided to bomb the last few weeks. I am currently in second on points but if I drop the game this week I might drop down to third and miss out on the bye. It is a 12 team league with .5 ppr all TD's are 6 points.

This is my team
QB: Matt Schaub
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: Mike Goodson
WR: DeSean Jackson
WR: TO
WR: Braylon Edwards
TE: Heath Miller
K: Matt Prater
D/ST: Steelers
Bench: Matt Ryan
Dez Bryant
Ronnie Brown
Michael Bush
Deion Branch
Nate Burleson

If Asante Samuel does not play I think I will start Schaub

I am trying to toss up between starting Edwards, Branch, Burleson and Bryant. Bryant scored 0 last week but has been putting up good numbers with Kitna at QB. Colts pass D has also been decent. Branch is to inconsistent and Revis island.

I think I also need a TE. Miller has been junk all season. I picked him up after Finley went down. Do I drop him and pick someone else up? These are the guys available

Celek Hou
Olsen  @Det
Watson @Mia
Gresham NO
Boss Was
Dreessen  @Phi
Gronkowski  Jets
Moeki  Den

I am leaning towards picking up Dreessen who has been playing well the last two games and Philly struggle against TE's

Please help me out guys

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on December 02, 2010, 11:21:48 PM
Ryan has put up more points than Schaub. I think Ryan will get me a more consistent 20 points. Basically if Samuel is out the Eagles corners will be useless. Samuel does not like to tackle and can not play bump and run which will be useless against AJ. Tamme is long gone at TE. What do you think about my WR situation?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on December 02, 2010, 11:43:58 PM
Picked up Dreessen and dropped Bush. I kept Miller as a back up for when Owen Daniels comes back.

Also a quick note for whoever is playing Pound the Rock in the yahoo league. I have been setting their roster. If Samuel plays Schaub stays out and Eli starts. If Samuel doesnt then Schaub comes in. I will try and fix it before I go to Uni tomorrow. If I do not have time I will do it that night regardless of score. I am recording the game and do not want to see the results so after I finish watching it I will do it.

haha its ridiculous isnt it it was my first year and i wanted to work different drafting strategies etc to see what worked best for a future blueprint to stick by NFL is pretty easy ur team only needs a minute each week if the league is standard and once the byes have passed u can set ur best lineup and forget about it until playoff time... NBA u need to set a roster for each day of the week so its alot more work
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

im loving the NBA this year last season i found it too hard to keep up with even with just 11 teams this year im running 30 something and all bar 1 is in the upper eschelon like u said u have to set it a week in advance so usually sunday night i run the gauntlet of rosters...

Thanks Marcz....funny thing is though. The one I won was the one I should've had no chance of winning. I had to win the last 5 games straight just to make it, was still the wildcard which meant facing the number 1 seed in the semis then still faced you in the final. Still I'll take it  :P

Good work there Marcz. My results for the season:

108 wins
46 losses
1 draw
3 titles

1st - 3 teams
2nd - 2
3rd - 3
5th - 1
8th - 1

The previous year (my first for NFL)  I got 6 out of 6 titles (most of them had lots of inactive managers though). This year I tried all of the main fantasy sites (Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, Fox, NFL)  and found Yahoo and ESPN to be the best. I'll stick to those two next season I reckon.

By far the most fun I've had drafting was in a Yahoo auction draft, a lot more strategy is involved. Takes a long time for everyone to draft but everyone turned up to draft and they seemed to know what they were doing.

The usual run on Running Backs begins in earnest. So I switch my strategy. There's no doubt Rodgers is one of only two QB's that could go in the first round. The other, Michael Vick is going to be injured at some point. Rodgers usually gets at least 13-14 games out. Easy choice with most of the running backs gone.

Round 2: Maurice Jones-Drew (RB, Jac)
Almost as I said....his injury last season seems to have caused a downsell. but if he's over it he's still a number 1 running back. Easy selection to make at the 14 slot.

Round 3: Reggie Wayne (WR, Ind)
I just didn't like any of the running backs on offer. If I'm going to reach I'd rather wait a couple of rounds and get my wideouts sorted. You know Wayne's going to get covered but he always gets #1 reciever numbers. A no-brainer pick.

Round 4: Vincent Jackson (WR, SD)
Kind of undersold due to his holdout last season. But at his best he's a gun and easily a number 1. In my team as the number 2. He could become on of the steals of the draft.

Round 5: Knowshon Moreno (RB, Den)
See my point about having to reach? I don't like this pick at all but I felt I HAD to take a running back here and Moreno seems like the guy most likely to actually do something considering Tim Tebow still isn't an NFL Quarterback yet. The McGahee signing would give me cause for concern though if this was a real team.

Round 6: Jeremy Maclin (WR, Phi)
DeSean Jackson may be holding out still. Vick's gotta throw the ball somewhere. That makes Maclin the perfect Flex pick for me.

Round 7: Jermichael Finley (TE, GB)
Didn't like much of anything on the board in WR or RB when the ball came back to me and the main guys like Gates, Witten and Clark were gone. Finley, if healthy is probably equal with Tony Gonzalez on that next tier and could break up into the top tier. Or he could break down again. A very boom or bust pick but at Pick 7 you have to take a few risks.

Round 8: Ryan Grant (RB, GB)
Case in point. I like this pick a lot, If Grant's knee is stable, he's the starter and he will produce starter's numbers, if he isn't...I work James Starks off the waiver wire. Could be a steal at this point for a draft.

Round 9: Percy Harvin (WR, Min)
By this point I've decided I'm going to pad my mock team with guys that could break out and could have landed me great trades down the road. Case in point, Harvin, with Rice gone someone has to catch McNabb's underthrown passes and it isn't all going to be Visanthe Shiancoe. Harvin is in the best spot without knowing anything from camp today. He can be a nice floater pick for me

Round 10: Jordy Nelson (WR, GB)
Simple case of mathematics, Rodgers spreads the ball and Nelson gets his fair share. Doesn't cost me much to take a guy who could break out.

Round 11: Brandon Jacobs (RB, NYG)
An insurance pick. The B-Train isn't going to get much yardage but he will get goal line carries, that means TD's. I'll take 6 TD's and 700 yds from my number 4 tailback, if Moreno or Grant explode then I have the added bonus.

Round 12: Chad Ochocinco (WR, NE)
Once again, stockpiling those who could explode, I only need one of Harvin, Nelson and Ocho to fire to make it worthwhile. You know Chad's going to get catches, any reciever with the Antichrist at QB will. It's just a matter of whether Chad is Randy Moss 2008 or Randy Moss 2010.

Round 13: Beanie Wells (RB, Ari)
More insurance, someone has to run the ball in Arizona, Beanie probably has first crack. Anyway he's my number 5 tailback so there's no real risk

Round 14: Sam Bradford (QB, STL)
This could be the steal, if Sam doesn't suffer second year blues and carries the Rams on his back again, his value is drastically underpriced here and I've got a gun sitting as a one week player (Rodger's bye week) that could help me sure up my weak RB core.

Round 15: Lions D
Following the strategy of NEVER draft Defence or Kickers till the final two rounds. I waited and rolled the dice, the twin headed monster of Fairley and Suh could get sacks by the....well sackful but the Lions are woefully inept against the pass if those two don't get to the QB. But really defence is low down on the totem pole for me anyway. if it works, it works if it doesn't something will be on the waiver wire to get me some points.

Round 16: Neil Rackers (K, Hou)
Same with kickers. In this case I took the best available. Rackers has a cannon for a leg but can suffer from LanceFranklinitis: A tendency to miss what he should easily kick.

All in a solid if not spectacular first draft
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on August 06, 2011, 11:21:41 PM
Interesting times in part 2.

12 team league. I draw #3

Round 1: Chris Johnson (RB, Ten)
Easy choice for me here. Whoever's left out of Peterson, Foster and CJ2k.

Round 2: Drew Brees (QB, NO)
I overpaid. But the only wideout I liked was Greg Jennings and he's not worth a second rounder either, no RB worth a look at this slot either.

Round 3: Ahmad Bradshaw (RB, NYG)
I don't like the fact that goalline carries go to Brandon Jacobs but Bradshaw should put up solid #2 starter numbers.

Round 4: Jeremy Maclin (WR, Phi)
Had to buy in now and get a pair I liked. Maclin probably isn't a #1 persay but he should get enough of the ball to get my other guys to cover

Round 5: Mario Manningham (WR, NYG)
I think he has potential. Definately a solid number 2 reciever. Only other guy I liked here was Antonio Gates, he went two picks before me.

Round 6: Marshawn Lynch (RB, Sea)
Guys like Ingram, Addai, Pierre Thomas were still on the board but if I'm going to take a flex RB I won't one with next to ZERO questions. That's Lynch right now. If you want to play Saints RB Roulette be my guest

Round 7: Daniel Thomas (RB, Mia)
Could've gone Sidney Rice, Could've gone Ochocinco. But Thomas has too much upside to pass up. He will be the starter, the only other real guy they have is Reggie Bush and he ain't starting anytime soon. If Hasselbeck was still in Seattle instead of T-Jack. I probably would've gone Rice though.

Round 8: A.J Green (WR, Cin)
With Ocho gone someone has to catch what little ball there is in Cincy and they used a really high pick on him. Was a toss up between him and Michael Bush but with only two WR's in my pen so far. I leant the rookies way

Round 9: Malcom Floyd (WR, SD)
Risk-Reward pick. Rivers will throw. Floyd projects to start beside V-Jack. I'm only giving him a number 4 WR spot. Would've liked Julio Jones here but he was taken the pick before mine.

Round 10: Robert Meachem (WR, NO)
See Floyd, Malcom. He will have big games, but WHICH games they'll be is the key thing.

Round 11: Hines Ward (WR, Pit)
May not start the first game but when he plays Roethlisberger tries to find him. A true Mr Reliable that I'm glad to take at the #6 reciever slot

Round 12: Mike Sims-Walker (WR, STL)
I HATE Mike Sims-Walker. If it wasn't a 12 team league he's not even on my radar but at the 7th reciever slot and he was brought in to be a weapon and target for Bradford. Not that I expect him to do it. Would probably be the first guy cut when a QB popped up on the Waiver Wire (If Brees stays fit. I only need a one week guy, hence I didn't draft a backup)

Round 13: Reggie Bush (RB, Mia)
Simple case of "There's noone I like. I can wait on a tight end, who's the RB that most likely needs a handcuff?". Clearly the rookie. Hence Bush gets buried somewhere deep on my bench in a hopeful mode.

Round 14: Dustin Keller (TE, NYJ)
I don't have a problem with this pick. If Gates, Clark and Witten are gone I'm quite happy to bide my time if everyone wants to rush on TE's. Really TE could become the new DEF/K for me this year. A lot of my mocks have finished TE, DEF, K

Round 15: Lions D
Again I'm happy to go all in on the risk reward. I might consider switching this is someone like the Eagles are still on the board in rd 13/14.

Round 16: Sebastian Janikowski (K, Oak)
Was close to last picked last year. Finished close to number 1. Drove a couple of my squads to Superbowl glory. No problem whatsoever taking him if you offer him to me in the last round
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: MajorLazer on August 07, 2011, 11:28:13 AM
Here is my 2nd mock draft with the 3rd pick this time.

Round 1: Chris Johnson
Same approach as BP, if AP and Foster are taken, take the other one.

Round 2: DeSean Jackson
This is where I decided on my strategy. Decided that there are too many good QBs to use a pick on them now, so took a WR.

Round 3: LeGarrette Blount
Tampa Bay will have to run the ball and he's the only guy that I have heard of so he should do well.

Round 4: Daniel Thomas
Even though Reggie Bush is there, Thomas is going to run the ball on his own. Why else would they get rid of Ronnie Brown.

Round 5: Peyton Manning
Not a bad QB in round 5.

Round 6: Anquan Boldin
Had to take a 2nd receiver and he was the best available.

Round 7: Ben Roethlisberger
Apart from the fact he and Manning have the same bye week, ::) he's a good QB to have as a backup.

Round 8: Sidney Rice
With him and Tavaris Jackson both moved from the Vikings so maybe they have some sort of chemistry.

Round 9: Mark Ingram
Good rookie RB that should run the ball a lot.

Round 10: Ryan Torain
Never heard of him, so thought why not? :P

Round 11: AJ Green
Someone has to catch the ball at Cincy and he's the only one there.

Round 12: Zach Miller
Not bad last season and hope he helps Jackson and bails him out a lot.

Round 13: Detroit Lions
Eh, why not?

Round 14: Dustin Keller
Needed a backup and got one.

Round 15: Robbie Gould
Who cares tbh.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on August 07, 2011, 12:06:07 PM
Not Bad ML. Manning in Rd 5 is a steal. Probably overpaid for Daniel Thomas though.

What was on the board in WR come round 14? I never take a TE back up. There'll be someone on the waiver wire in his bye week.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: MajorLazer on August 07, 2011, 07:51:08 PM
There was absolutely nothing good and that's what made me take a TE if I remember right.

Thomas looks like he will be the only RB for Miami so thought I would take him.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on August 07, 2011, 08:57:35 PM
Ahhh. Okay. With me I go with the strategy of "The more lottery tickets I have the better chance of winning" A lot of the times in the mocks I've done I've maxed out on Wideouts. But then as I said, a lot of times I've been finishing TE, DEF, K.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on August 15, 2011, 12:40:19 AM
So my first live draft happened yesterday, my longest running league (5 years now). Always drafts early which makes trading and waiver play that much more fun

10 teams. I draw the #5 pick. In this case I'll show you who I drafted and why and who I could have had (IE: My next best option) and why I didn't take him

Round 1 (#5): Jamaal Charles (RB, KC)
Someone jumped on the Vick bandwagon, he went number 2. The Big 3 (Peterson, Foster, CJ2K) were the other three choices. Charles is the next best and could break into the elite this year. I have no qualms whatsoever taking Charles here.
Who I could have taken: Aaron Rodgers: I don't dislike Rodgers, in fact in most of my mock drafts I usually end up with him. I just like Charles's upside that much more. Rodgers last till the end of the first round before being snapped up.

Round 2 (#16): Michael Turner (RB, ATL)
I decided I wanted two top tier running backs and Turner was one of the last on the board. Still has upside and unless he gets injured his downside isn't bad at all. A safe pick more than a good one.
Who I could have taken: Calvin Johnson: I love Megatron.....IF you could guarantee me Stafford is going to play at least 10 games. Even so I admit it was a toss up but ultimately I think Wideout is deeper this year than Running Back so the lack of quality left on the board (Literally the only other top tier guy was Frank Gore) turned me to Turner over Megatron. Megatron fell to open the third at pick 21.

Round 3 (#25): Phillip Rivers (QB, SD)
I want one of the top six QB's in basically every draft I'm in. Drew Brees going one pick before me meant Rivers was the last one on the board. Another no hesitation pick here, even if Matthews and Tolbert get it together Rivers is an elite fantasy QB.
Who I could have taken: Antonio Gates: Literally there was no wideout I liked over Gates in that slot so if Rivers was gone I would've bought Gates early. But again the fact of the last top 6 QB's made it a no-brainer. Gates went at pick 31 to open the 4th

Round 4 (#36): Miles Austin (WR, Dal)
I figured I had to buy into the wideout at this point. I don't dislike Austin as a number one. He's going to do enough to get you good numbers most weeks.
Who I could have taken: Matt Forte: Would've been a great flex pick and made my Running Back core almost unbeatable most weeks. I just was worried if I took him there'd be nothing waiting for me in terms of a number one Wideout on the comeback. Forte was snapped up three picks after me.

Round 5 (#45): Ahmad Bradshaw (RB, NYG)
Turned out my hunch was right. Nothing I liked at wideout necessitated the Flex pick. Yes Jacobs is still there but Bradshaw is the most solid guy left on the board at this point.
Who I could have taken: Knowshon Moreno: I'm a big believer in Moreno this year. I just like Bradshaw that little bit more. That said I probably still would've taken Moreno....had he not been taken the pick before me in the next round  >:(

Round 6 (#56): Brandon Lloyd (WR, Den)
So with Moreno gone and only one WR in my team I turn to his Denver teammate. Like Megatron, I don't HATE the value here.....if you could guarantee me Kyle Orton was going to play the whole year. Still he's a solid enough #2
Who I could have taken: Dallas Clark: I love Clark but Lloyd was the last guy I felt happy throwing in at number 2 at this point. He went two picks later

Round 7 (#65): Mario Manningham (WR, NYG)
Mega Upside, especially now that Steve Smith is gone. I was PRAYING he'd fall to me and I went from okay, to scared when Kenny Britt fell off the board and my friend Dale was up. But he plugged for Owen Daniels. At which point I hit the "Draft Faster" button. I will gladly take Manningham's upside if I don't have to start him.
Who I could have taken: Shonn Greene: Yeah okay LT's still there but he has to crack sometime. I probably would've turned the Jets back's way had the draft been true to usual form. A thought confirmed when he was the very next pick after mine.

Round 8 (#76): Austin Collie (WR, Ind)
I was shocked he was downselled that far. I almost took the round before but Manningham's upside was that much better. Okay his concussions are a worry but when he plays he stars. Another no hesitation pick when he fell to me here.
Who I could have taken: Chad Ochocinco: I'm hugely on the Ocho bandwagon but Collie was just too good to pass up at 76. Ocho fell two picks later.

Round 9 (#85): Daniel Thomas (RB, Mia)
Again someone has to run the ball and as my backup I can store him and pray he explodes. I like Thomas better than Ingram anyway and I was quite happy to have him fall to me here
Who I could have taken: Sidney Rice: Would've been a steal at this point as he too had been horrifically undersold. But I just don't trust T-Jack. He fell all the way to 91.

Round 10 (#96): Jimmy Graham (TE, NO)
I did reach here I admit, but I love Graham's upside and I felt he wasn't going to get back to me in the next round. So I bought in probably a round too early in hindsight.
Who I could have taken: Marshawn Lynch: Definately would've been a safer pick. But again Graham's upside is that much better. Lynch went two picks after me.

Round 11 (#105): Lance Moore (WR, NO)
It's a pick that just there....Moore was probably the wide I would've taken if I took one the round before so I'm not upset by it or anything. It's just a do-nothing pick
Who I could have taken: Joesph Addai: Wideout was a more pressing need and I don't buy the fact he'll play more than 10 games. If I didn't have Thomas I might have pegged for him but as it was I needed to be boring here.

Round 12 (#116): C.J Spiller (RB, Buf)
I'm quite happy to gamble on a high upside guy in my last RB spot on the bench. Spillers not the starter but I think he has more upside than most people think. If Fred Jackson flops Spiller is waiting in the wings.
Who I could have taken: Michael Crabtree: Yeah.....Right. Not while Alex Smith is still the QB.

Round 13 (#125): Steve Smith (WR, Car)
Yes he has either Newton or Clausen as QB. But who the heck else are they going to throw it to? In the 13th round and the #6 WR spot I'm happy to take a punt on him if noone else will. I'm willing to bet last season is an abberation.
Who I could have taken: Mike Sims-Walker: Excuse me while I laugh. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Two words. Flower....That.

Round 14 (#136): Sam Bradford (QB, STL)
Don't really need a back up but he's too good to pass up in the 14th. Gives me trade options should he repeat his dosage from last year.
Who I could have taken: Hines Ward: I would've been happy with Mr.Dancing with the Stars as a number 7 WR. Bradford just gives me better options.

Round 15 (#145): Chargers D/ST
Round 16 (#156): Billy Cundiff (K, Bal)
As per usual Defence and Kicker in the last two rounds.

Overall: I'm happy with my team. I might be a wideout short but I think I can make up for that. Especially if Bradford fires. Despite waiting my WR core is strong enough and I have two top 10 RB's and a Top 6 QB...and if Graham esplodes, look out.

Nice choices there BP.

I also had my first live draft on the weekend, here's my team. 10 teams, I was pick #8.

Being outside the reach of the first round RBs I decided to top up on WR. If Ryan Grant stays healthy then Turner/Grant isn't a bad pair of RBs. I usually only draft one QB but since I didn't get a top tier QB I decided to get Kolb as well as Schaub. Hopefully one of them will go off this year. I like having a QB/WR combo from the same NFL team, with this team I've got 2  ;D.

I also like to take a couple of rookies so I got Ryan Williams and Roy Helu, you just never know, it makes you look like a genius if they have a breakout year. If not then you will need to pick up waiver dudes during the year so a non-performing rookie is a perfect choice to drop. I also like Jimmy Graham, lots of potential.

Overall I'm pretty happy with my team, it's probably in the top 2 or 3 teams that were drafted.

8   Andre Johnson, Hou WR 
13   Michael Turner, Atl RB 
28   Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR 
33   DeSean Jackson, Phi WR 
48   Matt Schaub, Hou QB 
53   Ryan Grant, GB RB 
68   Cedric Benson, Cin RB 
73   Austin Collie, Ind WR 
88   Ryan Williams, Ari RB 
93   Mike Thomas, Jac WR 
108   Kevin Kolb, Ari QB 
113   Jimmy Graham, NO TE 
128   Roy Helu, Wsh RB 
133   Derrick Mason, NYJ WR 
148   Chargers D/ST D/ST 
153   Stephen Gostkowski, NE K

I like having a QB/WR combo from the same NFL team, with this team I've got 2  ;D .

I also like to take a couple of rookies so I got Ryan Williams and Roy Helu, you just never know, it makes you look like a genius if they have a breakout year. If not then you will need to pick up waiver dudes during the year so a non-performing rookie is a perfect choice to drop. I also like Jimmy Graham, lots of potential.

Overall I'm pretty happy with my team, it's probably in the top 2 or 3 teams that were drafted.

8   Andre Johnson, Hou WR 
13   Michael Turner, Atl RB 
28   Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR 
33   DeSean Jackson, Phi WR 
48   Matt Schaub, Hou QB 
53   Ryan Grant, GB RB 
68   Cedric Benson, Cin RB 
73   Austin Collie, Ind WR 
88   Ryan Williams, Ari RB 
93   Mike Thomas, Jac WR 
108   Kevin Kolb, Ari QB 
113   Jimmy Graham, NO TE 
128   Roy Helu, Wsh RB 
133   Derrick Mason, NYJ WR 
148   Chargers D/ST D/ST 
153   Stephen Gostkowski, NE K

Not too bad g.

Here's my thoughts just from observing

Andre Johnson: I'm assuming both Rodgers and Vick were gone as well. No problem taking Andre here. Although I probably would've gone Roddy White as the first wideout off the board.
Michael Turner: No problem whatsoever taking him here. Safe pick, quality starter
Larry Fitzgerald: STEAL! I wish I could get him to last to 28 in my drafts  ::) . But Noooo I usually have to settle on Miles Austin or Dez Bryant
Desean Jackson: Again no problem, about where he should be.
Matt Schaub: Hmmmm. I don't HATE the pick but I don't like it either. This is a reason I try to land an top 6 QB. So I don't have to worry about taking one when I want to take upside players like Manningham.
Ryan Grant: No problem again. I'd be hesitant taking him as a number 2. But if he explodes he's solid enough there.
Cedric Benson: ICK! No offense g but if you want Benson you can bloody well have him :P I want NOONE on the Bungles this year except MAYBE A.J Green.....Maybe....If I have 4 WR's that are ahead of him on my depth chart.
Austin Collie: Like my draft too good to pass up at the spot. No complaints at all
Ryan Williams: I like his potential. Not as much as Thomas but better than Ingram. Solid 4th RB
Mike Thomas: Okay for what you paid for him. I'd pass him cause there's too many questions about the Jags. Only guy I want from there is Mercedes Lewis.....and Maybe Rashard Jennings in a deeper league.
Kevin Kolb: I think you overpaid....I'm not sold on Kolb....if you offer me Stafford or Bradford in round 12-13 I'd take them over Kolb in the 11th.
Jimmy Graham: Love this pick. Love his upside
Roy Helu: Part of me says good move...part of me says "They signed Tim Hightower for a reason". Again if I'm going to reach. I'd reach for Spiller and hope Jackson flops or Rashard Jennings and hope MJD breaks down.
Derrick Mason: I don't HATE it. If Plax fails Mason's the fallback guy. But it's kind "Eh"

Thanks for the critique there BP, much appreciated.

Yes, Rodgers went on pick 4. Vick was still there but I'm not overly keen on picking a QB on round 1. I had Peyton lined up for round 3 but he went the pick before I got Fitzgerald. I was then hoping for Romo but he went 2 picks before I settled for Schaub. Just hoping that Foster gets more receiving TDs than rushing  ;D

I've got a soft spot for poor old Cedric, he took me to a championship, along with Ray Rice, 2 years ago.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on August 16, 2011, 02:59:43 PM
last night i did a standard ESPN scoring draft and i tell u what there some bananas in the drafting room ;D

originally my plan going in was to draft a late round QB as id just done a mock and was happy with the outcome, so rather than have all my teams drafted off similar strategies i went "unique". What i didnt count on were the other people leaving near on every player on the board that i had interest in, here goes...

Pick 4 in the draft i chose Jamaal Charles even tho Foster was there, the upside this guy has is ridiculous he was a top 5 back while Thomas Jones pilfered over 200 carries off him last year and Foster i dont consider to be top 5 this year...

Pick 17 Roddy White... yeah thats right Roddy White at 17 :o at this point im salivating at the potential of the team i can build if the draft continues down this path, Andre Johnson went the pick before this so i knew i was getting one of the 2 best WRs in fantasy...

Pick 24 Calvin Johnson :o yeah Megatron at 24 :P worth noting i could have took Fitz but the Lions love to throw and Calv put up double digit TDs an over 1000 yds last year with three different QBs, shortened training camp and new QB for Fitz meant i prefer Megatron...

Pick 37 Miles Austin 8) after my previous picks im considering abandoning the late QB and considering Romo bcos The Cowboy offense is coming together nicely and i believe they will explode this year, Romo Austin and Jones... Whitten will remain idle in production and Bryant i think will marginally improve but wont be worth a 4th to 5th round pick more a 7th imo. Romo went 2 picks before hand and there were no RBs i wanted in the bracket so i winged and loaded my WR corps taking Austin, from here on i dont even care about WRs as they wont get on the field this 3 r as impressive combo as anyone is likely to draft.

Pick 44 Felix Jones stoked with this pick i think the guy breaks out this year and becomes a top 10 running back in total yards with his impressive catching ability and the multiple weapon offense The Boys will be running u cant cover everyone Austin, Whitten, Jones, Bryant is going to make for great balance and big scores. A little early maybe but with my next pick at 57 and Jones ranked at 51 it wasnt a stretch.

Pick 57 Josh Freeman love the look of this kid, he broke out last year and was a top 10 fantasy QB has impressive wheels and more weapons on his team this year than last, i project him being able to post around 270pts compared to his 240 last year.

Pick 64 Shonn Green love this pick im big on this kid and i may not even be able to get him on the field if Jones breaks out.

Pick 77 Packers D, tbh who knows if this will be a good pick :-\ on last years points and this years projections for standard leagues it was worth it for me based on where i was in this draft. At time of making this pick i wanted to take Austin Collie but thought it would be a waste as he wont get on the field nor would a running back from this spot so i wanted to build my on field potential. The Steelers went the pick prior.

Pick 84 Austin Collie :o :P he was still on the board so figured why the flower not 8)

Pick 97 Jimmy Graham The Saints TE, huge stretch but he was my choice of the remaining TEs being Winslow just went before my pick and i believe this bloke posts top 10 TE numbers with Shockey gone...

Pick 104 Eli Manning basically a value pick and security blanket for Freeman should he fail, with Nicks and Manningham healthy Eli will put up high 27-32 TDs this year and could be a good play in some weeks so il look at exploiting the defensive matchups Freeman and Eli have and go with the QB who faces the defense that gives up the most deep balls.

Pick 117 Thomas Jones bit of a meh pick except for the fact that i have Charles and he is the only potential handcuff, should either get injured i will reap the rewards of The Kansas City Chiefs love of running the ball...

Pick 124 Greg Olsen again a value pick with young QBs loving to dump it off to TEs when struggling to make reads Olsen could be a solid pick at TE, should Jimmy Graham be just average il be exploiting matchups between he and Olsen.

Pick 137 Neil Rackers solid kicker ranks in top 5... cant get excited for Kickers in standard formats...

Pick 144 Matthew Stafford, normally i only go with two QBs but with a lack of any real need to build depth at  other positions i figure take a late round gamble on this kid who has impressive numbers on averages, if this kid can string a full season he will be a top 10 fantasy QB bcos The Lions just flatout throw the ball and their bandaid back field will keep them hurling it.

Pick 157 Jacoby Ford Raiders wideout that has been likened to DeSean Jackson has plenty of upside and if he breaks out il look to trade him for some extra RB depth.

If this isnt a championship team i wont draft one this year, fair to say there were some real oddities with others selections that allowed me to build such a strong squad but it certainly wont cheapen the wins :P

I'm not opposed to drafting QB in the first round, if you give me Aaron Rodgers and the top 4 backs are gone. I'm sorta kinda with you on Vick though, I think last season is an abberation and he's not worth a first round, which means I probably won't have him in any of my teams this year. I just don't like Schaub in the 5th when in most drafts I can get Eli in the 9th and Stafford/Bradford in the 12/13th. Not that Schaub won't be solid but a 5th rounder is an overpay

No  ;D. That's just downright unfair. Your league opponents won't even bother with their teams after round 1.

Yeah you're probably right. I was happy enough to get Peterson and CJ2k for under $100 but then Fitz fell to me at 22. Rivers at 24. Gates at 11 means I don't know what the hell the others were smoking. Then Jackson and Blount as my flex. I would so crush everyone with that team  :P WHY CAN I NOT DO THIS IN REAL DRAFTS?

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on August 21, 2011, 09:39:12 PM
Live Draft 2. In the turn spot of 10. Blech

Round 1+2 (10 and 11): LeSean McCoy and Andre Johnson.
Happy to see McCoy dropped to me. Andre was a toss-up but I'm just more trusting his way
Who I could've taken: Roddy White
McCoy was a lock once he fell to me at 10. But give me the choice between Johnson and White 100 times and I'm probably 50-50 on both.

Round 3+4 (30 and 31): Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates
Rivers was the last of the 6 elites so he was a lock once he fell to me. Gates I probably reached for but I knew he wasn't coming back to me and with a stud in RB and WR I felt I could take the chance. In hindsight I should've waited. Witten was waiting for me on the next turn.
Who I could've taken: Reggie Wayne
Would have been safer than Gates. But I didn't think one of the three studs at TE was coming back.

Rounds 5+6 (50 and 51): Jahvid Best and Santonio Holmes
I hate Best. Hate Hate Hate. But he has explosive spped. IF he can stay on the field. Holmes I'm more than happy with. He's a solid #2 behind Johnson. Upside isn't much but the key thing is downside isn't either
Who I SHOULD'VE taken: Beanie Wells
He's the only back left in Arizona now that Ryan Williams is injured, I got suckered in by Best's upside. I'm an idiot

Rounds 7+8 (70 and 71): Cedric Benson and Mario Manningham
Case in point. The risky Best meant I had to break my "I won't draft a Bungle" decree and take the safest option as my flex player. That's Benson. Manningham goes without saying. I'm all in on him this year especially if he falls to me in the 7th or 8th round
Who I could've taken: Marshawn Lynch
I think Lynch is going to have a big year. But he also suffers from a disease called "Being Marshawn Lynch" which has proved fatal to fantasy teams in the past. With the Risky Best I couldn't take the upside guy and had to stick with the tried and true Benson.

Rounds 9+10 (90 and 91): Tim Hightower and Pierre Garcon
I don't think much of Hightower but he looks more and more like Washington's starter and at the number 4 RB slot I was prepared to take another starter. Garcon is just there, A real "I hate everyone so I'll take you" pick
Who I could've taken: Mike Thomas
Case in point. I don't rate him. I don't rate Malcom Floyd. I don't rate Lee Evans. I hated everything at this point.

Round 11+12 (110 and 111): Robert Meachem and Plaxico Burress
Little risk High Reward lottery tickets. Meachem looks like he may be over his ankle injury and Plax is going to get targets. I have no problem with them
Who I could've taken: Braylon Edwards
Show me a person who likes "Sir Drops-A-Lot" and I'll show you a masochist. PASS

Round 13+14 (130 and 131): Eagles D and Deion Branch
Normally I don't pick Defence or Kicker till the last 2 rounds but there was litterally NOTHING I liked at this point so I took a D early. Branch is Brady's release valve, a bit like Hines Ward. He has zero upside but he'll get catches at least.
Who I could've taken: Michael Crabtree
Higher upside no doubt but I'll take Brady over Alex Smith thank you.

Round 15+16 (150 and 151): Javon Ringer and Josh Brown
Ringer is the ultimate flyer pick. Stashed at the end of my bench with first cut on his ticket but I picked him because HE'S the guy if Chris Johnson continues to hold out. Zero Risk for Maximum Reward. And the best kicker on the board rounds out
Who I could've taken: Delone Carter
Another of those squad of guys. He's the #3 running back with the Colts. But Addai can't stay healthy and Donald Brown just plain can't play. I think he gets Goal line duties this year and vultures a few TD's

I'm pleased enough from the 10 spot. it's risk reward which is what you have to do there. I flowered up on Best though

I think the key is knowing what you're willing to pay. I know I won't pay more than a dollar for a kicker or more than 2 for a D. And I'm happy filling my bench with a standout high upside guy and 6 $1 dollar players. That leaves me about $180-185 to spend on 6 spots. Using my earlier mock. Peterson is elite and so's CJ2k. I was the first guy to bid a tight end so I snuck Gates under the radar at 11. Rivers was clinically undervalued which left me more than enough to fill the other spots easy

yep that sounds solid ;) a bloke last night got sick of the bidding war on Arian Foster and bumped it from $56 to $185 then left the draft ;D that is one of the strangest things ive ever seen in a draft... clearly he was watching sportscenter as was i and saw he peeled off 2 TDs and and 50+ yards on about 5 carries...

I like to be bold as well  ;D Normally splash out on 4 or 5 of the top dudes and hope to pick up some cheap bargains later on.

Here's what I did in a 'real' Yahoo PPR auction. Overpaid for McCoy - got in to a bidding war as he was the last RB worth getting at nomination 34. Bit thin on the bench but as long as my dudes stay healthy I should do ok.

Budget    $200
1.    (4)    Arian Foster (Hou - RB)    $42
2.    (11)    Miles Austin (Dal - WR)    $26
3.    (16)    Reggie Wayne (Ind - WR)    $24
4.    (18)    Aaron Rodgers (GB - QB)    $38
5.    (34)    LeSean McCoy (Phi - RB)    $47
6.    (62)    Greg Olsen (Car - TE)    $1
7.    (92)    Donovan McNabb (Min - QB)    $1
8.    (106)    Steve Smith (Car - WR)    $6
9.    (123)    Hines Ward (Pit - WR)    $2
10.    (128)    Nick Folk (NYJ - K)    $1
11.    (134)    Jerome Simpson (Cin - WR)    $2
12.    (135)    Detroit (Det - DEF)    $1
13.    (139)    Pierre Thomas (NO - RB)    $2
14.    (141)    Mike Tolbert (SD - RB)    $4
15.    (142)    Johnny Knox (Chi - WR)    $1
16.    (147)    Robert Meachem (NO - WR)    $1
Unused    $1


Olsen and McNabb were attempts to get them off the table but no-one went for them - there was one autobidder  :-[. Consequently I'm now trying to get Keller or Pettigrew off waivers.

Probably best to get the top dudes early on because if you overpay it's probably only a couple of dollars. Later on when it gets a bit desperate then you pay way too much.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: gwilliams on August 23, 2011, 12:01:06 AM
And here's a 'real' ESPN auction - standard... Went big on Peterson and Andre, didn't leave much for the rest of team. But probably a better bench than the Yahoo one.

1   Adrian Peterson, Min RB     $63
7   Rashad Jennings, Jac RB     $1
12   Andre Johnson, Hou WR     $47
31   Matt Forte, Chi RB     $24
33   Philip Rivers, SD QB     $22
46   Jeremy Maclin, Phi WR     $18
77   Jets D/ST D/ST     $1
80   Austin Collie, Ind WR     $10
97   Jimmy Graham, NO TE     $1
98   Chad Ochocinco, NE WR     $6
107   Hines Ward, Pit WR     $1
116   Brandon Jacobs, NYG RB     $2
117   Brandon Pettigrew, Det TE     $1
127   Jerome Harrison, Det RB     $1
135   Danny Woodhead, NE RB     $1
142   Sebastian Janikowski, Oak K     $1

I just did a draft for my first league yesterday. It was a 12 team leahue, .25 ppr QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, RB/WR/TE, D/ST, K, IDP. A couple of people were using the autopick and I was drafting from the 5 spot.

Round 1: Chris Johnson, if he plays he is a top 3 pick and with Foster, AP, Charles and Rice already taken and the next crop of RB's worth anything in Shady and Turner gone by the next round I had to take Johnson

Round 2: Peyton Manning, QB's had flown off the board with Vick taken first, followed by Rodgers, Brady, Rivers and Brees, with the run on QB's I did not want to take the chance that all the guys I liked being gone so I went with Manning.
Round 3: Miles Austin, I wanted Greg Jennings and was eyeing him with my second round pick, he was taken two picks before mine, I needed to go with a WR and it was between Austin and DeSean Jackson. With DJax missing time in camp and the fact Maclin has been ill all pre season I decided to go with Austin and use him as trade bait for later.
Round 4: Wes Welker, I was eyeing off Bowe and he was picked the pick before mine, I  was looking at taking Moreno, Lynch or Ryan Grant, Moreno and Lynch have the same bye as CJ2k so they were out and I thought I could get Grant my next pick, plus Welker looked to be good value for where I picked him up and sures up my WR's
Round 5: Dallas Clark, a run on TE's by autopick, still thought I could hold off on Grant, went with the best available TE in Clark
Round 6: Cedric Benson, don't like the pick at all but Grant went, Sidney Rice was still on the board but I needed a RB, was holding off on Rice until the next round, Felix Jones and Beanie Wells the two next best available and I don't like either of them.
Round 7: Hines Ward, Sidney Rice was gone, Collie was on the board but I have Manning and Clark already, Ward was the only player I liked at this spot
Round 8:  Pierre Thomas, I needed a back up RB, I liked no one here other then Tolbert and The Lawfirm but they had the same bye as Johnson
Round 9: Mike Tolbert, he is still on the board and was the best available player, he should get goal line carries in an offense that puts up points
Round 10: San Diego, autopick went on a run of D/ST's
Round 11: Kevin Kolb, was tossing up on back up QB's between Kolb and Orton, there was a chance Tebow could be starting week 11 so I went with Kolb, who I hope starts the season well and then I can trade him for something decent
Round 12: Derrick Mason, I wanted Plax but he was taken earlier, I needed the depth at WR and picked Mason
Round 13: Cooley, I could not find the IDP I wanted before my pick ran out, so I took Cooley for depth at TE
Round 14: Clay Matthews, IDP pick
Round 15: David Akers, I wanted Bironas but I would have had my K, D/ST and 2 RB's out on bye that week, went with Akers

I am struggling with Byes a bit, a lot of players out weeks 6, 7 and 11. I have been offered up Shonn Greene for Benson, which I am thinking of taking. I don't trust Benson since they will see a lot of numbers in the box with a rookie qb in, but he will get his touches. I also don't trust Greene with LT still there.

Let me know what you guys think

I agree with you in principle over Shonn Green Mat but I'd take Syphilis over Cedric Benson.

Post by: Mat0369 on August 23, 2011, 03:43:11 PM
It was pretty much the I am screwed pick of the draft. The thing is I know Benson will get his carries, I don't want Greene unless I have LT as a hancuff which I don't

I've joined Matt. My preference is for a weekend draft time slot but any week night after 6pm should be ok as well. I work so any workday times will count me out.

Interesting settings with the bonus points for D's. Could be fun. Possibly raises a good D a round or 2. The player projected scores look like they are based on the league scoring system but it's projecting 0.0 4th Down Stops and 3 and Outs so it's not easy to get a good feel on which teams are better at those stats.

r we talking afternoon on that particular draft time? valid question with the hours i keep :P

this year i am going coach 100 fantasy nfl teams... to keep up my career average il need to win atleast 30 titles.

I have taken the scoring set up from a league I do with a bunch of guys in the states. The only problem we might have with draft times is that you have to pick a slot and if it is taken you can't draft then. The slots start from 11pm and finish at 1pm. So we either have to draft late at night or draft in the morning/afternoon.

If weekends is good for everyone maybe either the 3rd or 4th at around 12:30 might be an option or we do an offline draft on a weeknight and post our picks on the board.

yeah gotta be online draft or i wont be interested... not a big fan of that roster system either, bit too tedious in my experiences.

one of our ESPN leagues had defensive players and multiple qbs etc, they start to cancel each other out score wise... hard to get a p.o.d

Online draft it is, I will lock it in for Saturday 3rd of September at 12:30 pm, if anything changes I will update the times here. The rosters for this league have not changed since last year. The rosters are still QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, D/ST, K and 6 bench spots. So far we have 5 in the league. We need to get the numbers up

for those interested in the espn live draft plz pick one of the options above... we will narrow it down once we agree on a time frame.

basically we wont need numbers to fill a draft, everyone interested will meet here at a time while being logged into ur espn account...

il post a link to the league in here prior to the time we choose eventually...

this will give us about 10 minutes before the draft fills up with others to make up numbers and launches ;)

Post by: Mat0369 on September 08, 2011, 12:09:46 PM
I just had two of my drafts from the other board today, I had picks 10 and 11, both are 12 team leagues.

First league, pick 10 .5 ppr, QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, D/ST, K, 6 bench spots. Ray Rice went 1st overall, AP 2, CJ2K 3, Foster 4, Rodgers 5, Charles 6, Roddy White at 7, Mendenhall at 8, Fitz at 9. It was an interesting draft, Vick lasted until pick 23, it happens in a league full of Eagles fans.

Round 1: LeSean McCoy. To good to pass up here, I had to take him, no brainer
Round 2: Michael Turner, Megatron and Johnson were off the board so I thought I would sure up my RB's. I was going to take Gore but he has the same bye as McCoy
Round 3: Dwayne Bowe
Round 4: Wes Welker
Round 5: Dallas Clark
Round 6: Roethlisberger
Round 7: Austin Collie
Round 8: Freeman, everyone here was junk, it would have been a reach so I thought I would take the best available player and use them as trade bait
Round 9: Braylon Edwards, I liked nothing here, made the pick with 1 second on the clock, I was eyeing off Hines Ward and he was taken 2 picks earlier, it was still to early to take a D
Round 10: Pittsburgh, Nothing on the board so I took the D
Round 11: Donald Driver, again nothing I liked, took him for depth and as a bye week filler
Round 12: Thomas Jones, Bye week filler if anything, still zero on the boards
Round 13: Antonio Brown, everything was junk so I took a stab on Brown
Round 14: Celek, bye week filler
Round 15: Gould

Team looks like this

Roethlisberger
Bowe
Welker
Collie
McCoy
Turner
Clark
Pit D/ST
Gould

Bench: Freeman
Edwards
Driver
Thomas Jones
Antonio Brown
Celek

decent starters, no depth at all
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on September 08, 2011, 12:43:30 PM
League 2, 1 ppr QB, RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE, D/ST, K, 7 bench spots

I was eyeing Roddy White, Lesean McCoy and Frank Gore with pick 11, White went at 8 McCoy at 4

Round 1: Andre Johnson, steal, value was to good to pass up.
Round 2: Turner, Gore went at 12 so I took Turner even with Calvin Johnson still on the board
Round 3: DeAngelo Williams, I was wanted Moreno but he was taken 2 spots earlier
Round 4: Wes Welker, Welker in ppr=beast, it was between him and Gates, Gates went the next pick
Round 5: Dallas Clark, Clark in ppr=beast
Round 6: Brandon Marshall, value was way to good to pass up here at pick 62, especially in a ppr format even if the QB situation is terrible
Round 7: Sidney Rice, looking back at this pick I should have taken a QB, earlier when I made the pick Schaub, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, Freeman and Flacco were all taken between this pick and the Marshall pick. Freeman was taken 2 picks earlier, I took Rice since he was the best available
Round 8: Eli Manning, I really dislike Eli and dont rate him fantasy wise, it was more of a desperation pick at QB and hope that Orton falls late and plays out the season as starter
Round 9: AJ Green at 107, best available, I started hoarding WR's for trade bait
Round 10: Ravens D/ST, Eagles taken a pick earlier and 4 already off the board, thought I would get a good one
Round 11: Kyle Orton, Cassel went the pick earlier, got him before someone else did
Round 13: Steve Breaston, Ward taken a pick earlier, Breaston should suprise people this season and could make good trade bait. He will get his catches and in ppr it helps.
Round 14: Ben Tate, if Foster goes down, he starts and will kill it, simple as that.
Round 15: Celek, depth player and bye week filler
Round 16: Bironas
Round 17: Chester Taylor, my smokey, there was no one else and Wells is injury prone, he will get receptions and he could be good as a starter for a few weeks.

Eli Manning
Turner
DeAngelo Williams
Marshall
Andre Johnson
Welker
Clark
Ravens
Bironas

Bench: Orton
Sidney Rice
AJ Green
Breaston
Ben Tate
Celek
Chester Taylor

I need another RB and a QB otherwise me team is fine. WR's are money

12 teams looks a tough gig... keep an eye on Delone Carter (Ind) and Deji Karim (Jag)

Carter is behind Addai who is an accident waiting to happen, apparently the kid is a load a la Tolbert...

Karim is behind MJD again an accident waiting to happen coming off knee surgery, apparently they r limiting MJD's workload too...

Both are gone in both leagues. These guys are on the ball when it comes to drafting, the autopick team is the only bad team by the look of it and that still is not that bad. My depth in league 1 is not great but I have a high pick in the waivers so I need to keep my eyes open. League 2 I have a lot of trade bait so I am thinking of offering up Rice and Tate for Shonn Greene and LT. The guy has Foster so I have his handcuff. He is also after a WR.


I might give the salary cap team a miss, I am not sure how much time I can put into fantasy this year so I don't want to leave a dead team in the league.

I am lucky I drafted so late in both leagues, it gives me good waiver pick ups. Someone always explodes and injuries happen. I will be looking at whoever goes in as the number 2 back in Cleveland, Madden Curse may strike again.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on September 11, 2011, 01:10:34 PM
So after seeing Marcz had gotten the itch I went to NFL.com purely as a matter of research to try a draft. I....just have to share this one. I pick #4

Round 1 (#4): Ray Rice
Absolute no brainer. Only other guy I'd consider is Jamaal Charles. He is the rock

Round 2: (#17): Frank Gore
Again no brainer. Another top 10 running back. Seems to be over everything. So far seems normal enough

Round 3 (#24): Greg Jennings
Yeah let me just take Rodger's only consistent target in the 3rd round thank you. I was upset though that Megatron went one pick before me. But still all seems well

Round 4 (#37): Miles Austin
A nice safe pick. Gets me two stud wideouts. No problems. Smooth sailing

Round 5 (#44): Dwayne Bowe
Love Bowe's upside. Looked the best option after LeGarrete Blount got taken one pick ahead of me  >:( (Come to think of it I hate that guy who picked at #3  >:( )

Round 6 (#57): Jahvid Best.
High upside picks are fun. I love fun. At this point it seems pretty normal. Probably will be bored of this league fast.

Round 7 (#64): Matthew Stafford.
So why not go for maximum overdrive on my return?

Round 8 (#77): Knowshon Moreno.
Say.....I know McGahee's gonna vulture but really? John Fox system. He's still going to have a nice year. Hell I'll take him as a #4

Round 9 (#84): Mario Manningham
Hey look who's still around? YOINK!

Round 10 (#97): Sam Bradford
Gotta have a backup for the man of glass. Still look for max return.

Round 11 (#104): Fred Jackson
DOUBLE YOINK!

Round 12 (#117) BenJarvus Green-Ellis
TRIPLE YOINK!

Round 13 (#124): Lance Kendricks
Yeah I'm just going to take who I think will explode now. Clearly there's going to be talent on the waiver wire.  ::)

Round 14 (#137): Detroit
Yeah guys, draft your defense in the 6th round. Give me the Lions in the 14th any day.

Round 15 (#144): Billy Cundiff
Yeah whatever.

So I have six starting RB's. Two gun QB prospects and 4 solid WR starters. This site is fun  ;D

Don't forget to renegotiate your player salaries if they've gone down in price. It will increase your available salary cap. My understanding of the rules is that if you don't then you just get market value for them (and no increase to your available cap)
is there a way u can negotiate 1 players salary?

bcos i hava few id like to pay less for but Vick instance went up near $3 which would offset the loss on others :-\

It will only negotiate players who have gone down in value but you can't choose which players. All of them will get renegotiated.

It's a bit confusing but after re-reading the rules it sort of makes sense to only renegotiate the players salaries if you intend to keep them on your roster but want to use their value decrease in your salary cap when you trade other players. Otherwise when you sell them you just get whatever you paid for them (regardless of whether they go up or down in value).

So ignore what I said previously  ::)

Okay just reviewing this for my own piece of mind.

My Welker for His Dallas Clark and Moreno. I say no. Moreno is hurt and looking like a bust and I'm really down on Clark until Collins proves himself.

Do I outright reject him or counter him and see if he'll slip Tolbert my way? I have no problem taking Clark cause Collins is eventually going to get it. Moreno's the deal breaker to me. By the way if it matters I have Graham as my TE in this league

so that i could pawn him off to those weak at QB and strengthen weaknesses elsewhere, got Santana Moss for him in one league already 8)

Thought about Newton cause I'm weak in one league....settled on Fitzpatrick instead

In my latest draft. I have the 3 headed monster. Rivers, Stafford and I jumped on Kolb in the last round. Hoping he has a big game in the next couple so I can on sell him to teams lacking in depth

This is my favorite time of the week. The hour before game time. Where I can go around all my leagues and see what idiots the owners I'm up against have been. I've only been through 10 so far and I've already picked up Dallas Clark, Kenny Britt and Ochocinco. I'm willing to roll the dice on them coming back.

Edit: Twice on Britt? What? Cause he's playing Baltimore. Morons  ::) Yoink!

Austin caught nine passes for 143 yards with three touchdowns Sunday, but he suffered a pulled hamstring in the game, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports.

The report notes that there is concern that Austin could be out through the Cowboys' Week 5 bye, but so far that's just speculation.

A question for you guys, in one of my leagues (half point per reception) my roster looks like this

QB: Roethlisberger
RB: McCoy
RB: Turner
WR: Bowe
WR: Welker
WR: Collie
TE: Clark
K: Gould
D/ST: Steelers

Bench:
Freeman
Braylon Edwards
Driver
Celek
Antonio Brown
Thomas Jones

I currently have the number 1 pick for waivers, McCluster is available. With Charles injuring his knee and having Thomas Jones do I try and pick up McCluster who can be used as both a WR and RB. One of McCluster or Jones will be the starter but McClain might be a goal line vulture. The downside to this is the fact I also have Bowe, the KC offense has been terrible and I might end up with 3 players from an unproductive offense. If I was to drop someone it would be either Edwards or Driver. Do I pick up McCluster?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on September 19, 2011, 03:32:28 PM
This is my ESPN team. It is ppr

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Turner
RB: DeAngelo Williams
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Wes Welker
WR: Brandon Marshall
TE: Dallas Clark
D/ST: Ravens
K: Bironas

Bench:
Orton
Sidney Rice
AJ Green
Ben Tate
Celek
Breaston
Chester Taylor

I offered up a trade during the week, AJ Green and Ben Tate to the guy who had Foster for LT and Shonn Greene. It was rejected. Foster injured his hamstring again, Tate put up 17 and AJ Green 28, LT put up 1 and Shonn Greene 12. I bet he comes back this week asking for the trade, I am going to try and take him to the cleaners.

McCluster reminds me of Westbrook, I dont think his size will matter and the fact is I have Thomas Jones as well as a handcuff. What I am worried about is the fact he plays for the Chiefs.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on September 19, 2011, 10:51:42 PM
McCluster is 5' 8", 170 lbs which makes him smaller than AI, Westbrook was 5' 10, 203 lbs big diff...

imo get him, i leaned toward Dex over Jones when handcuffing Charles, Jones only hope is to get TD's, his YPC is terrible and he is old...
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on September 19, 2011, 11:32:40 PM
I watched some of McClusters games in college, he has the potential to be the next Brian Westbrook. He will have the question marks on his size and how injury prone he will be, but he also has the ability to turn any play into a score.

Gwill did me by two points in ESPN ::) well done AGAIN mate

I tried hard to lose it. Had Nicks in my line-up originally but thinking that he wasn't going to play today I swapped him out for Maclin yesterday before work, and then swapped him back in thinking that Maclin may have another bad game  ::) then decided to put Caddy in today as he would be the safest play. Turned out to be the worst choice but managed to scrape in.

You pretty much toasted us in the salary cap league though, good work. Now I've got Charles to offload and probably Vick as well.

Looks like I'll end up 19-12 this week. Slightly better than last week. Had a couple of close 2 pt losses myself but on the flip side I had a 0.3 pt win and a 0.52 pt win, talk about close!

right move imo, especially after the carnage lately u want durable, consistent guns...

one of my teams has 6 Q out of 7 starter slots...

cutting Jamaal Charles was flowering painful in some leagues as i was too slow (100+ teams) to get anyone of decent value RB wise ::)
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on September 22, 2011, 10:03:51 AM
For Jamaal Charles Owners/ That Role...

Spin:
With Charles gone, McCluster seems an obvious replacement for certain packages, as he shares a similar skill set to Charles with his tremendous elusiveness and explosiveness. But entering the season the Chiefs' coaching staff had intentions of limiting McCluster to about 8-10 touches per game, so as to not overexpose his sleight frame to injury. While that number should increase some to fill the need, it is likely he will now complement veteran Thomas Jones instead of spelling Charles, which may not change his role dramatically.

A lot of mine were the same. I mostly got Darren Sproules. But in one league I did manage to snag McGahee.

I think I might have to wait on Steve Smith another week. I think I may end up needing him this week. In the league I have him (I took him in the 14th round too  ;D ) I have Austin out, Manningham's likely out, Lloyd is iffy. I might be forced to start Lance Moore this week  ::)
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

Lloyd practiced a little today and should be fine... hopefully, he has been WR2 in a lot of my teams

Ive seen both Giant games and Mario looks shower, easy drops etc... the concussion he got was from dropping a chest mark and falling down, if he stayed standing he would have waltzed into the end zone ::)

there have been some impatient owners out there, ive picked up Big Ben, Matt Schaub and Bears Defense today ;)
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on September 23, 2011, 01:20:53 PM
So I got a tagline trade offer today in one of my leagues with the words "u can't turn this down"

This was the offer

He gives me the injured Stephen Jackson, Braylon Edwards (AKA Sir Drops-A-Lot) and Deion Branch for my Ray Rice...

Needless to say my answer back to him was "Watch me" - Rejected

Coming back to this for a second. You know the irony of this was? 4 days after this was rejected by me (Sunday Morning) I looked at the waiver wire. The only piece of his offer worth a damn (Jackson) was sitting there. So he basically gave me Jackson for bugger all  :P I believe he picked up Chad Henne

Edit: I was wrong. It was Danny Woodhead

Start them and Sit them questions

Do I start Clark or King? Clark is questionable and against the Steelers. He is also the late game so I cant decide last minute.

Collie, Antonio Brown or McCluster? I think I go with Collie again, but Kerry Collins is killing me.

Do I start Tate ahead of DeAngelo Williams? Williams is playing the Jags who killed Chris Johnson. It Foster does not play Tate is a certain starter for me.

Clark or Celek? Same thing with the Clark or King question.

Keep up the good work  ;D I've also picked up Clark and Matthews in a couple of leagues.

Someone traded me Rivers and Braylon Edwards for Meachem during the week, and the trade wasn't vetoed  :o He had Britt but very little else in their WRs so obviously needed someone. He must have decided that his other QB, Flacco had more upside and decided to offload Rivers. Now I've got Rivers and Vick! Hope they both go off this week as I'll trade one next week.

If you had asked any Eagles fan they would have told you not to take Vick. I did a draft with a bunch of guys off the Eagles Message Board. He was not taken until pick 23 which was end of the second in a 12 team draft. Behind that O-line, his playing style and how injury prone he is, he was not worth a 1st round pick.

Any RB that comes up against the Eagles is must play. When an offensive line coach is the new D coordinator you know you have problems. They made some very stupid mistakes in very critical situations. The worst of the lot had to be Parker jumping offside on 4th and short which let the Bills kneel out the game.

Post by: Mat0369 on October 13, 2011, 12:11:21 AM
I have just made a couple of big moves to a team that was already undefeated. This has easily become my favourite team. It is a PPR league and you start a QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, RB/WR, TE, D/ST, K. It is a 12 team league.

Before the moves

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Turner
RB: DeAngelo Williams
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Welker
RB/WR: Brandon Marshall
TE: Dallas Clark
D/ST: Ravens
K: Bironas

Bench:
Sidney Rice
AJ Green
Ben Tate
Chester Taylor
Kyle Orton
Bucs D/ST (Bye week filler)
Breaston

I needed a QB so I offloaded Rice for Schaub, added Avant through waivers for Chester Taylor. I then dropped the Bucs for a bye week filler kicker in Gould. I need a TE, I am weak there with Clark underperforming and picked up Ed Dickson who might work out.

QB: Schaub
RB: Turner
RB: Williams
WR: Welker
WR: Andre Johnson
RB/WR: Marshall
TE: Clark
D/ST: Ravens
K: Bironas

Bench
Eli Manning
AJ Green
Breaston
Tate
Avant
Dickson
Gould (bye filler)

Avant is looking good in a PPR league as a bye wee filler and possible trade bait. I still have Green and Manning as trade bait to upgrade my RB 2 which is still weak. Breaston has also put up scores in consecutive weeks. For a PPR league this team is looking strong and just got stronger. I am already undefeated so thats a plus.

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on October 16, 2011, 03:14:06 PM
So I need some advice on who to start and sit this week.

The big one this week is do I start Eli or Schaub? I traded for Schaub to be my starting QB this week. This week he is banged up and coming up against a Ravens D who has not allowed a QB to pass over 200 yards in the air. Eli is coming up against a Bills team who came up with a ton of interceptions last week, but Vick was able to move the ball through the air against them. The Bills look like a bend but don't break D who give up a ton of yardage in the air but produce turnovers.

The other question I have is do I go with Dallas Clark again or just start Dickson?
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on October 16, 2011, 03:30:01 PM
Eli. He'll throw picks but he'll throw TD's too.

And I wouldn't start Dallas till he shows something

Lloyd will be reunited with Josh McDaniels, the Rams' offensive coordinator who was the head coach of the Broncos last season when the receiver led the league with 1,448 yards receiving, catching 77 passes, 11 of them for touchdowns.

Post by: Mat0369 on October 23, 2011, 06:54:56 PM
So I need some advice on who to start this week. I am basically expecting to lose this week and the next in one league. Byes are going to kill me.

League 1 team .5 PPR:

QB: Roethlisberger
RB: Turner
RB: Thomas Jones
WR: Bowe
WR: Little
WR: James Jones
TE: Dallas Clark
K: Gould
D/ST: Steelers
Bench: Freeman
McCluster
Jacoby Jones
Welker (bye)
McCoy (bye)
Victor Cruz (bye)

So with Shady, Welker and Cruz all on bye I have to start one of Thomas Jones or McCluster at RB. I am not sure on which one to go with. I need to start two of Jacoby Jones, James Jones and Greg Little. I am leaning towards James Jones and Little. I am lucky my opponent has Brady out this week and is starting Charlie Whitehurst.

Byes are going to kill me this week. No advice needed for this team but I have a lot of players out this week.
League 2 PPR:

QB: Schaub
RB: Turner
RB: DeAngelo Williams
RB/WR: Hines Ward
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Steve Breaston
TE: Clark
K: Bironas
D/ST: Ravens

Bench: Andre Johnson (out)
Welker (bye)
AJ Green (bye)
Eli (bye)
Avant (bye)
Dickson
Ben Tate
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on October 23, 2011, 08:21:51 PM
I'd probably start McCluster at RB. But Jackie Battle is going to eat everything up there.

As for the wideouts Little and James Jones for sure

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: gwilliams on October 23, 2011, 08:26:51 PM
I am leaning towards James Jones and Little.

Yes, I'd go with these as well. I've picked up James Jones in quite a few leagues this week as a bye week filler.

Are there any other RBs available in your league? Neither Thomas Jones or McCluster have done anything much this season.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on October 23, 2011, 08:32:15 PM

I used James Jones last week to fill in for Bowes bye and picked up Little and Jacoby this week from the FA pool. Battle did get a lot of touches against the Colts which does worry me but I am just going to have to go with one of the two.

I am worried about James Jones since he was only targeted once last week which was the TD catch. He also has a habit of dropping balls so right now it is between him and Jacoby Jones for that last spot.

These are the guys available, Michael Bush, Roy Helu, Delone Carter, Marion Barber, Keiland Williams and Carnell Williams. That is the best of the rest.

I'd go shopping for a DeMarco Murray or a Maurice Morris....guys who'll get the start this week when you need them
Both got picked up in waivers. It is a 12 team league and highly competative. I put a waiver claim in for Murray and Hardesty but both got picked up by someone with a higher priority.

its basically some of the players acquired from that deal that ferguson offered me, he has since dropped all his players to FA so i guess that was his plan being the guys hye traded to me were on the undroppable list... still im not sure why he wanted to vacate his roster just let ur team go to shower if thats what u want to do :-\

also managed to shop Vick and get AP in a standard league, i really wasnt playing him anyway as i have Cam Newton who is killing it...

Flower i blow so hard in the league were in ive offered up dozens of trades but no bites on Finley or Gronkowski/Hernandez...

the last two losses have come to guys who havent fielded full teams ::) Torain and CJ being the main two culprits >:(

Yes, better to do nothing rather than unbalance the league.

Just like Ellis Otte in our league. He's done nothing for the first 7 weeks then wham, all of a sudden before the Monday night game in week 8 he picked up a few players and almost got an entire line-up together. He was 2-5 and playing the number #1 undefeated team (me  8)). Why bother now? The only thing that I can think of is that I gave him some smack talk in week 1 after he failed to replace Hartley as his kicker and he decided to wait until our match-up to do something ??? Anyway, I gave him a bit more smack this week, hope he read it!

should i or shouldnt i make this trade...

i originally proposed this trade to him as i was weak at RB 2 and i have Newton Brees and Tebow along with 4 strong WR's... thinking id get more for Brees than Newton aswell as its pointless leaving Brees on the Bench... thing is my RB 2 is Willis McGahee who exploded on the weekend so i cancelled it, he is keen on it and proposed it to me...
im 7-2 he is 4-5, his team is good besides not having a QB... if i make the trade like i want too im worried this will come back to bite me in the a$$...

Newton, Smith, Maclin, Bryant, Peterson, McGahee, Daniels, Steelers is my current team
Newton, Smith, Maclin, Bryant, Peterson, Rice, Daniels, Jets would be my new team

not really Brees is on the bench so its an upgrade on field, flower it im going for it, if Newton gets injured im flowered but its driving me nuts having two elite scorers at QB... "risk it to get the biscuit"
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL

I'd be happier with Rice/Jets on the field, they should be a bit more consistent than McGahee/Steelers

Post by: RiOtChEsS on November 11, 2011, 01:40:14 AM
all those waiver pickups for Cam Newton r paying massive dividends now, in the leagues where i already had Rodgers im now landing AP or Shady in return... in one league in particular its crazy tight, leader is 6-3 then there is a log jam at 5-4 and 4-5, the 2 bottom teams r 3-6... i have Rodgers and Newton, i sent the top guy a Newton for AP proposal as he has Fred Jackson and Forte aswell with Rivers at QB he declined and lowballed with 7 different offers, i declined and said im only interested in Cam for AP and somebody else will give me an elite RB for him... 10 minutes later i get " i did some looking an i think i can make it work"  ::) duh dude its a great trade for us both an almost locks up a finals birth for both teams, huge upgrade in the RB dept for me which was Steven Jackson, Blount, McGahee, Ingram...

QB A.Rodgers, WR G.Jennings, R.White, A.Green RB AP, SJ, TE J.Whitten K Hanson, DEF Ravens

anyone else swinging for the fences before the trade deadline?

he has a rookie QB tho so Defenses stack the box and dare the young guy to throw down the field which he doesnt...

long story short MJD is pushing shower up a hill...
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: CrowsFan on November 11, 2011, 09:57:34 AM
Didn't he play all last year injured?
Yeah I thought he had a rookie QB, which is why I figured he would get a lot of rushing yards, but I guess the opposition would know that would be their plan. It always works for me on Madden though... ;D
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on November 11, 2011, 10:50:12 AM
yeah his knees r shonky these days, average lifespan of NFL RB is 8 years...

he has been putting up decent numbers but not elite, Gabbert is only averaging 100yds passing per game over the last 3 games ???

u want guys like Arian Foster who have both a good Offense, Defense and have a tendancy to get goal line carries, a rushing TD is the equivalent of 60yds rushing. when teams get a lead they tend to run the ball more to chew up the clock and when u have deep threats at WR the Defense has to respect that so wont load the box to stop the run cos they could get burned deep...

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: 8-6 Suited on November 11, 2011, 11:21:46 PM
Housh has the previous chemistry and relationship with Palmer though but Moore > DHB. That is why I dropped DHB and picked up Moore today and started him due to my lack of quality WR spots so I figured since Moore is a play maker, play him instead of Washington who is a risk.

Good work with the win Marcz. My team looks like it is on the slippery slide to oblivion, it's got a lot of injury and form worries. Still waiting for Rivers to come good  ;D

Unfortunately for you there are only 2 games left before the finals and even if you win both of them there will be at least 4 teams with better records, so it looks like it will be up to me or BP to bring home the championship to Oz.

In a bit of a situation with my RB's and WR's this week. I need to start a RB out of Morris and DeAngelo Williams. Leaning towards Morris. If Turner does not play I start both.

My WR's I need to start 3 of Welker, AJ Green, Andre Johnson and Brandon Marshall in a PPR league.
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: RiOtChEsS on December 04, 2011, 11:24:41 PM
id go the other way, Williams... TB have been shocking against the run and he has two back to back decent games...

besides Smith looks set to play which will eat into Morris' touches...

forget Andre until he has a decent game imo
Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: Mat0369 on December 04, 2011, 11:31:25 PM
I don't like AJ Greens match up but I dont think I can start Johnson with the QB situation. The problem I have with Williams is the fact he loses carries and has to hit the endzone to put up points.

Good work BP.

Even though the projected scores for week 14 are pretty close I think that I'd rather have Rice vs Indy and MJD vs Bucs rather than my motley crew of RBs. And don't even mention my WRs!

Unless Rivers goes nuts and throws 3 TDs to Mathews, I think that I'll be starting week 15 from behind.

19 from 23 teams in the playoffs. Although 3 are in NFL and don't count cause a blind squirrel could finish with a 9-4 record

Post by: Mat0369 on December 09, 2011, 03:04:45 PM
So I have Roethlisberger and my other QB is Josh Freeman. I have the bye this week so I have to look at my available options for next week. Freeman would be playing Dallas if he plays and is inconsistent. Roethlisberger will have a few extra days to rest the ankle up but he is coming up against the 49ers and is banged up. I don't think I will be able to start either of these guys next week unless Roethlisberger is a full participant in all the practices.

My available options are Christian Ponder v NO, Dan Orlovsky v Ten, Alex Smith v Pitt, Matt Moore @ Buf, Grossman @ NYG, Bradford v Cin, Kolb v Cle, Orton v GB

If I was to pick 3 possible QB's out of that bunch it would be Ponder, Moore and Orton. If Orton plays this week and does ok I might pick him up as insurance since the Packers don't have the best pass D. Moore I think is the next best option and then Ponder. The Vikes are going to be playing from behind so they are going to have to air it out.

So Big Ben does not have a break but I want to pick up some insurance. With the injury to Matt Moore on the weekend he is out of the question now. I have put in a waiver claim for Yates. He had 300 yards 2 TD's 1 INT against the Bengals. He is coming up against a Panthers team that Matt Ryan had 320 yards and 4 TD's against.

Should I stick with Yates or should I pick up one of Grossman, Alex Smith, Orlovsky or Skelton?

Title: Re: Fantasy NFL
Post by: BratPack on December 13, 2011, 05:48:30 PM
I'd pick up Smith myself if Yates fails....he plays Pit this week but then has Seattle and The Rams to take him home

Post by: Mat0369 on December 13, 2011, 07:31:11 PM

Oh so just for this week then?


Well then I'd list them like this


1. Yates
2. Skelton
3. Orlovsky
4. Grossman
5. Smith


Although Yates is iffy. Carolina has two defensive linemen out and Yates may just turn into a Foster/Tate handoff machine. Safety is Yates/Risk is Skelton

These are what my two teams look like right now

Yahoo .5ppr league 12 team

QB: Roethlisberger (pending health)
RB: Shady McCoy
RB: Turner
WR: Bowe
WR: Welker
WR: Cruz
TE: Winslow
DEF: Steeler
K: Gould
Bench: Yates
Batch
Grant
Gresham
James Jones
Robinson
Gresham

ESPN PPR 12 team:
QB: Eli
RB: Turner
RB: Ryan Grant
WR: Welker
WR: AJ Green
RB/WR: Marshall
TE: Celek
DEF: Ravens
K: Gould
Bench: Andre Johnson
DeAngelo Williams
Ben Tate
Breaston
Keller
Maurice Morris
Riley Cooper

So what I have to consider for this week.

The Yahoo league I have to look at what to do with Roethlisberger, Bowe and Winslow. I think I have to risk going with Big Ben if he practices at least once this week. I have Batch if he does not play to put in at QB. I don't like benching my studs but I don't trust Palko at QB and have Robinson sitting on my bench. TE has been a problem all year for me, they both have good matchups however.

For the ESPN league it is all about who to play at RB 2. Tate could be an option since the Panthers run D is terrible. The Texans could run the ball down their throats all day if this is the case. Grant had a big game last week and so did DeAngelo Williams.

Should I keep those starting line ups as they are or should I change them?

yahoo league: I would sit on Big Ben and slot in Batch if he's ruled out, there's talk Ricky Stanzi could start this week for the chiefs.


espn: Depends on what your situation is....If you're safe. Grant....if you need to swing for the fences go Tate

I just traded Big Ben and Mendenhall for CJ2K and Flacco.

Good trade or not?

Eh.....Depends if Ben plays Tuesday or not. Flacco is worse than him and CJ2K hasn't been anything but has good matchups. Could go either way.

I have Stafford as my main QB. Traded Big Ben cos I don't need him anymore.

Week 2 update: I lead Gwill 73-61. Rice and Steelers left for me Matthews and Novak for GWill.


Total: 196-135


Other game is going down to the wire. Carine needs the Ravens D to score 6 to send GO packing

Congrats BP, you certainly had the players when it counted.

I won the second week though, so I'd prefer to think of it as a 1-1 draw rather than a 41 point thrashing  ;D

well done Gwill and well done BP too bring home the lombardi for FF 8)

i havent checked my teams yet, won about 57% of games, just too many rosters...

rekn id be in a few still tho with the weird weekend of scoring, some of my teams that didnt make it were better name and depth wise than my winning teams ??? just depends who u run into on a given weekend i spose...

also feverishly preparing for NBA :P ive got a 20 team limit so that shouldnt be too hard to keep up with... hopefully :D

15 from 23 teams for me are in the Superbowl. 2 sides lost by a combined total of 3.45 points  :'(


Let's have a look at our league though and my match against Team GO. I got thrashed by him earlier in the year when Bradshaw went BEAST MODE. This is how I THINK we'll look in week one


Quarterback.
Team GO has Aaron Rodgers, which should give him the automatic edge, but against Chicago and no offensive line who knows? But if he's lost faith he does have The Golden Boy on his bench
I'll be going with my Mister Reliable, something I never thought I would say at the beginning of the year. Matthew Stafford up against San Diego. I do have Romo but I'm not chancing him, no way no how.
Advantage: Team GO should have it. But not by as much as you'd think


RB1
Team GO has been hurt by injury in his running back corps. He'll probably lead off with Bradshaw against the J-E-T-S, not a horrible match up by any means.
I'll be going with the man who's been there all year. Ray Rice, against a pourous Cleveland defence he should be in for a good day. Of course that's been said about Ray before this season
Advantage: I'd rather face the Browns than the Jets. One for the Good Guys


RB2
Here's where things go a little awry for Team GO, unless he can find something on the Waiver Wire his number 2 is probably going to end up being Pierre Thomas against Atlanta. If he vultures a TD fine otherwise a mess
I'll bring the 1-2 punch to play by rolling with MJD versus a Tennesee D that just got torched by Donald Brown.
Advantage: I really don't want to tempt the fantasy football gods but I kinda like my chances here


Flex (RB/WR)
Team GO has being plugging A.J Green into this spot. Definately not the worst flex in the world
I have a toss up. Felix Jones against the Eagles or CJ Spiller against Denver. My head says Spiller but I've been burnt badly on him before.
Advantage: Probably a push


WR1
Team GO has Larry Fitzgerald to lead his recieving corps.....a bulletproof choice.
I shall probably go with The Slot Machine. Wes Welker against the Dolphins. Has been solid all the way for me and I don't see that changing
Advantage: Push.


WR2.
Team GO currently flies with Santonio Holmes. A man who in recent weeks has needed TD's to be worth anything. Could switch it up and fly Manningham into it.
I currently have The Salsa King locked in that spot. But I'm thinking this week I may have to change that. The spectre of Revis Island as a possibility even with Nicks is scary, especially when I've got either Mike Wallace, Dez Bryant or Laurant Robinson waiting in the wings. I'd look to Wallace here I think but I'll wait to see what the rankers say before I make a final choice
Advantage: Wideout's been my strong suit this season. The waiver wire has served me well.


TE
Now Team GO has the 3 card trick here. Dustin Keller, Vernon Davis or Jermichael Finley. I'd say he'd probably roll Davis, but he started Keller last week
I have Owen Daniels.....and unless something drastic happens I will continue with Owen Daniels
Advantage: Up in the air. Should be his on paper though


D/ST
Interesting to see what Team GO does here. He currently has the Bears D.but against Rodgers? Eh I don't know. He may look to the wire.
I took the Steelers D from Marcz about 5 weeks ago when he upgraded to the Texans and against St Louis and getting Harrison back I'm happy to roll with them again
Advantage: Well currently it's Aaron Rodgers v Sam Bradford/Kellen Clemens. You do the math


Kicker
Not that it matters but Team GO goes with Dan Bailey, the Dallas Kicker
I took Gostkowski from NE when Cundiff was in doubt. You still get points for kicking extra points.
Advantage: Who cares?


Looks good on paper so far

Post by: RiOtChEsS on December 21, 2011, 10:41:15 AM
yep looks good BP 8) id play Spiller, we got torched against the Eagles last time and Murray only got 10 carries for 74  yds...

Felix could get a few catches too but lets face it that game between BUF/DEN is gonna stay close so plenty of Pill for Spill :P

holy shower what a relief that tiebreakers go on playoff seeding :o after losing one game all year that would suck massively...

so i just tallied up my results,  89 of the 122 made playoffs and im into 44 Superbowls... bit disappointed with only 44 to keep up my championship winning average il need to win virtually every single one of those Superbowls...

got up for a dawny (photos) and the weather had turned feral :(

but i had 30 mins to check for outs and saved myself some zeros from Helu and Cundiff 8)

changed up 4 slots in the salary cap game to try catch ya BP... 26 down with two to go i had to get adventurous

Dang The Salsa King just went 99 and a TD on 2 blown tackles ::) course i just dropped him in salary cap... for B.Marshall tho 8)

AP down again with a knee/ankle :o thanks for a decent score but dang that hurts his stock for next year...

Wouldn't you know I dropped Salsa King this week. But Stafford once again with BEAST MODE. Current score in the Superbowl 133-33. He still has 4 to play though.

yeah every league i had him in i benched him after he talked shower about Revis, in hindsight it was a clever move on their behalf as he is the Giants key reciever, over the middle or deep whereas Nicks is really just a deep threat and the Jets took the bait believing that Cruz was just trying to divert attention from Nicks by calling out Revis... sounds like ur goin well in the FF League, another two week matchup is gonna make for some mayhem with all the casualties already this week...

I'm wondering....If Romo's hand is good, which by all accounts it is, should I dial up his number this week? I'm worried Stafford might sit at some stage considering the Lions have next to nothing to play for, Romo is in a must win, so you know he isn't unless he gets hurt again.

there is noway in the world he misses this game and in these games both teams march up an down the field so he will put up good numbers, im glad yahoo (not salary) and nfl site have finished, brings me backdown to 28 teams with all the late withdrawal curveballs that will be thrown our way in the wee hours of Monday morning... Cowboys, Giants, Broncos, Raiders etc should be safe plays needing a win to get in...
