Post your teams, rate others, ask questions, etc.

ESPN: 12 Team, Non-PPR, 3 Keepers

QB: Can Newton (7th) - I was afraid of a run on QBs with 16 picks before my next pick.
RB: Le'Veon Bell (Keeper)
WR: Dez Bryant (Keeper)
WR: T.Y. Hilton (Keeper)
RB/WR: Michael Crabtree (4th) - I only got him because a guy before me clicked on the wrong WR.
TE: Martellus Bennett (8th) - There were still many WRs I liked so I went TE here.
D/ST: Seahawks (10th) - Still a number of WRs I liked so I reached for a D/ST.
K: Matt Bryant (12th)

Bench: Carson Palmer (13th)
Bench: Doug Martin (6th) - Was happy with my starters, so I was okay with the suspension.
Bench: Ameer Abdullah (5th)
Bench: Jamaal Williams (14th) - A flyer here.
Bench: Adam Thielen (9th)
Bench: Corey Coleman (11th) - Kenny Britt was also on the board.


Overall I'd rate my draft a B or B+. The rest of this is super long, and I encourage you to stop reading now.

As for keepers I had Le'Veon Bell, Dez Bryant, and T.Y. Hilton. Obviously Le'Veon is a stud; but I'm not super high on either WR to start off the season. Dez Bryant has some really tough matchups and T.Y. Hilton without Andrew Luck is a bit of an unknown. As it turns out, had I dropped both I would have probably ended up with a choice between Amari Cooper, Dalvin Cook, and Isaiah Crowell. Anyway, it's a bit of an unknown; probably the biggest mistake here was someone letting go of Michael Thomas or Doug Baldwin to keep a 3rd round pick. I really don't know the thought process, perhaps if no one else dropped one of their keepers they would have had the first pick. Anyway, I think they had a huge drop since they ended up with DeAndre Hopkins. Probably one of the worst moves in the draft, IMHO.

My first pick was pick number 45. With the pick of Ty Montgomery all of the RBs; I was targeting in the first round were off the board. There really wasn't any value picks; I think I drafted Michael Crabtree about where he should have been taken. My next pick was number 5 overll. Things were looking good for me to go WR/WR, but then Martavis Bryant and Allen Robinson were taken with the two picks before my selection. I thought about Larry Fitgerald or Kelvin Benjmin, but ultimately decided to go RB...I took Ameer Abdullah. Great player, but as some competition with Theo Riddick.

So between my odd to even there are 16 picks. On my board there were 7 WRs that I was targeting. Unfortunately again they were all taken. All of the elite QBs and TEs were also taken; so there really wasn't any value pick here. The players available were Bilal Powel and Doug Martin. Bilal Powel was higher on my draft board, but because I was looking for flex play, I thought that Dough Martin had the most potential to beat out one of my starters...despite the suspension.

I feel this next pick was my worst pick of the draft. I took Cam Newton because I feared there might be a run on QBs. Looking at the guys that were left; I should have just drafted either Bilal Powell or Stefon Diggs. Total mistake there...I just was so fearful of a run on QBs that I didn't stick with my draft plan. Plus in drafting Cam Newton; I basically committed to drafting a backup QB. I regretted the pick the moment I hit submit. Oh well, maybe he'll have a bounce back year with an improved WR core.

Now typically my league does have a run on QBs; but this year they decided to go RB. I knew I wanted to target one of the 7-12 overall TEs. With Kyle Ruldolph, Delanie Walker, Hunter Henry, and Zach Ertz were all off the board; I decided it was time to go TE. I drafted Martellus Bennett, but I was very tempted to take Adam Thielen here. I was very happy to see him still available with my next pick.

When I'm drafting, I always like to really pause around this time to think about where I'm at. Most of the players left are all solid veterans with low upside or unproven players with high upside. I currently have rostered: QB, RB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, WR, and TE. I knew I still needed a QB, D/ST, and K...so that left two luxury picks. I decided at that point they were going to be a WR and RB. I kind of highlighted a group of upside players and figured I'd take whoever was left from that group. They ended up being Corey Coleman and Jamaal Williams. They actually were both the highest selection of the groups I highlighted. I was very happy with both of them.

Playing in an 8 team league with some friends. Crazy how good some teams are in an 8 team leagues. Mine is:

QB - Brees, Carr
RB - Bell, Lynch, CJ Anderson, Gillislee, Peterson
WR - Baldwin, Cooper, Hopkins, Garçon, Jordan Matthews
TE- Gronk
D - Denver
K - Gostkowski

On of my 12 team leagues is much more down to earth

QB - Winston, Taylor
RB - David Johnson, Bilal Powell, Doug Martin/Jaquizz Rodgers, Jamal Charles
WR - Demarius Thomas, Hopkins, Devante Parker, Thielen, Corey Coleman
TE - Olsen, Julius Thomas
D - Denver
K - Crosby

Went with a few risks that could pay off nicely in Charles and J. Thomas, but won't hurt me at all if they don't pan out.

10 Team Standard League:

QB- Mariota
WR- DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Larry Fitzgerald, Kenny Britt, Corey Davis
RB- Devonta Freeman, Bilal Powell, Christian McCaffrey, Rex Burkhead, Jacquizz Rodgers, Jeremy Hill
TE- Greg Olsen
D- Cincinnati
K- McManus

I never carry a backup qb unless somebody real good hits waivers and I have a spot for him.
Wish I had been able to snag another good RB... hopefully one of Burkhead, Jacquizz or Hill is serviceable or I'll have to hit waivers early. The rest of my team is set up nicely though.

Wouldn't be surprising. I just hope it doesn't turn into a timeshare. There's too many of those around the league and they kill fantasy values.

Someone interviewed Matt Nagy (Chief's OC) and he was hinting that KC might be a RB by committee this year. It's safe to assume Hunt will lead in carries, but West and Spiller are likely to get touches. From what I've seen, Hunt is very much like Ware. West and Spiller can break off larger runs. I'll probably bench Hunt until I see how they use him. I already posted in the NFL thread, but here goes:

10 Team Keeper League (QB, RB, WR, Flex, Flex, TE, K, D, 5x Bn):
QB: Stafford, Luck
RB: McCaffery. Mixon, Montgomery, D Martin
WR: OBJ, AJ Green, T Hill, M Bryant
TE: Bennett
K: Sea-bass
Def: Den

This is a rebooted keeper league (we reboot periodically to keep it fresh); I'm really hoping to nail 2 first round keepers. Drafted 7th... despite that I feel like as the season goes on I will get better, and hopefully be able to trade a RB or WR to improve QB.


My auction league (10 team, ppr, 2 qb's, flex spots):
QB: Stafford, Manning, Dalton (ugh)
RB: Freeman, Howard, Hunt, Mixon
WR: D Bryant, K Allen, K Benjamin, M Bryant
TE: Olsen
K: Gostkowski
Def: KC

I feel pretty good about this league, but it could totally blow up in my face. A lot of risk.

The Buccaneers had the perfect opportunity to move on from Doug Martin, and they choose not to do so. I assume by this that they believe Doug Martin is far ahead of Jacquizz Ridgers. My expectation is that Doug Martin will return as the teams clear RB1.

12 team, PPR

QB: Derek Carr (9th) - I wanted to wait on QB, but was more than happy to land Carr this late. He was the 12th QB taken, but I think he's a top 8 guy.
RB: Lamar Miller (3rd) - Not ideal but pickings were getting slim and I think he's still a RB1.
RB: Danny Woodhead (6th) - Being a PPR league, Woodhead should be a decent RB2. RB is clearly a weakness of mine though.
WR: Julio Jones (1st) - Picked 4th so didn't have much of an option here. Always love me some Julio.
WR: Amari Cooper (2nd) - I think the Carr/Cooper pairing is going to be huge this year, and there weren't any RBs I was crazy about at the end of the second.
WR: Demaryius Thomas (4th) - A steal in my eyes. Makes me loaded at WR.
TE: Eric Ebron (10th) - Another position I don't mind waiting on, and he was the 13th TE picked. I think he's a serviceable starter.
Flex: Golden Tate (5th) - Yet another WR, but I felt the value was too good to pass up.

Bench: Andy Dalton (13th) - Not a huge fan of his but he's a decent backup.
Bench: Mike Gillislee (7th) - Wanted to get some more RB depth and think he has potential to be a solid guy this year.
Bench: James White (8th) - The pass catching back in NE, and should see even more passes with Eldeman out.
Bench: Duke Johnson (11th) - One more RB for depth sake, and Duke in the 11th is great value. Should be productive with his receptions.
Bench: Kevin White (12th) - My pick to be the WR to own in Chicago with Meredith out.
Bench: Devin Funchess (15th) - Benjamin hasn't exactly been a rock, and Funchess is pretty much locked in to be the WR2. Lots of potential with little risk.
Bench: Cameron Brate (14th) - He did me well last year and I think he'll be a solid backup again this year.

All in all, I'm happy with how the draft went. I would have liked my RBs to be better, but I can't complain too much because I like my depth and I love my WRs.

I think you did great. I do agree that 4th is a big rough; because in my opinion there is some separation between D. Johnson, L. Bell, and A. Brown. Still I'd have also taken J. Jones there. 2nd and 3rd both seem like logical value picks, not steels, but solid picks a few spots after where they where on my board. I agree with you about D. Thomas. He seems like he'd normally go a round before that. I think you got value with every single pick, with the exception of J. White. Even there though you're about at value...so really not much to complain about. Even though you don't have an elite QB you're fine. In my league D. Carr went in the early 8th and A. Dalton in the 10th.

Scared to see Woodhead at your #2 RB starting line up...

but you have a Amazing WRs core.. Carr should be putting up numbers so having Cooper helps..

I would almost say try to trade a wr or so for another RB..
'
2 pats rbs on the bench... gosh.. you never know who going to do what at RB lol = but they do love Gil.


It will either be Kevin White or Kendall Wright to own in Chi.

Congrats Justin! Not sure if app has that personally.

putting this out there for a friend. He's doing two football betting leagues and wanted to see if anyone was interested so I said I'd ask once.
1) 22 League: You pick a team out of the ones available in the league and if they get 22 points exactly that week, you win. I think buy-in is $20 but not sure, can check if you're interested
2) Suicide League: Buy in is $20. Every week you pick 1 team to win, if you're right you move on to next week, if you're wrong you're eliminated. This keeps going until one team is left, you can't pick the same team twice. I'm doing this league and right now there's 9 people in so $180 pot.

Starts tomorrow so if you're interested in either, PM me.

Hyde usually goes nuts in the first week, and he no longer has Kaep ruining his stats.

Anderson and Hunt appear to be in time shares, it'll be interesting to see how it gets split up. Even at 30 coming off his third knee surgery, Charles is better than CJ IF he can stay healthy.

The one to watch is Carson for Seattle. Deep sleeper. If he gets a lot touches week 1 consider him.

Isn't Cohen leading the Bears in targets and receptions while only getting a few less carries than Howard?

With OBJ going down, I need to trade Hyde or Doug Martin for a WR (I also have Hunt). Leaning towards Hyde but the best offers I've gotten are Watkins, Cooper, Tate, and Pryor. Would you guys take any of them for Hyde? I can't use him in the flex cause our flex is WR/TE.

Other receivers are Antonio Brown (keeper), Maclin, Jaron Brown, Marvin Jones.

Watkins is feast or famine so I don't like him personally
Cooper has been absolutely abysmal so far this year so that's a huge risk
Tate has been somewhat inconsistent, however he gets a lot of targets
Pryor has under-performed so far this year as well, so he's a risk

Of those 4 I'd probably pick Tate.

You think it's a fair offer or should I just hold for another week? I'm playing a 2-3 team so not too desperate yet but I do need a better wr than Mac.

With the bump, I'll update the OP with the transactions I've made this year. My league has a limit of 20 transactions per season.

1) Added S. Bradford / Dropped C. Palmer
2) Added D. Watson / Dropped S. Bradford
3) Added A. Kamara / Dropped J. Williams
4) Added R. Succop / Moved C. Coleman to IR
5) Added Redskins / Dropped R. Succop

I'm currently 5 of 12 in my league after dropping the first three games, going to be a bit of a battle to make of of the playoff spots this year.

Also could work out a deal for Pryor and Devante Parker, but not much else. I picked up Corey Davis and Mike Williams... Hopefully one of them gets into WR2 territory.

I turned over 4 spots. Dropped Engram for Kittle (likely a rental), OBJ to IR picked up Funchess, dropped Prater for Butker and Detroit D for Goff (I have Denver). Dropped Stafford for Watson last week.

Go out and get Jacksonville's defense if unowned. I nearly dumped Denver for them. If D's are set up to score (like in my league), Jac can be a huge boost. They were my sleeper darling.

TE's are BRUTAL this year so far.

Fantasy playoff time!

I have to pick one of the following guys:

Alfred Morris
Kenyan Drake
Jamaal Williams
Aaron Jones
Mike Davis

I'm leaning towards Morris. Good week last week, but hadn't done much before that.

Also,

Marquise Lee
Josh Gordon

I'm thinking Gordon at this point. I think he'll get a lot of targets.

That's what I'm thinking. I like Drake, but Miami will probably be down big to New England, so they may need to abandon the run. The two Green Bay backs I love, but until we know which one is actually going to play you can't trust either of them. Mike Davis might be good but I'd like to see a little more out of him before I drop him in the fantasy playoffs.

And the WR, Lee has been pretty solid, but he's the odd man out. My other two are Hopkins and Thielen, both of which are must starts.

Drake and gordon. Drake destroyed Denver last week and will catch a lot out of backfield.

Good advice. I was sold on Morris and Gordon, but eventually talked myself into Drake and Gordon. It worked out well for me. I didn't start Jamaal Williams though which sucked, but I won so it's all good.

Advice time!

Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees?

Jarvis Landry, Jordy Nelson, Doug Baldwin, Dez Bryant - One has to sit

AB :(

I hope he's okay to return next week, my first week of playoffs.
