Having a Rb, Qb, Wr or TE from the same team...pros & cons

Postby jnjtk555 » Tue Jul 25, 2006 7:32 pm

Whats up everyone. Im new to the FFF; been checking this site out for a few days and i think its superior to espns' forums. I have the 7th and 9th picks and i was thinking about such a strategy where i try to get a L. Jordan, Brooks, Moss or Courtney or R. Brown, D Pep, and Chambers. What are the cons of such a strategy if i were able to pull it off(besides the by-week issue). Only one of the league(as of now) is PPR and the other is IDP.
If im not able to get the RB. im definitely aim towards a QB & Wr from the same team; there are a few that i believe i could pull off. Well i appreciate any advice forthcoming...peace jon

Its putting all your eggs in one basket. Also, very often a good day for the passing offense means a below average day for the rushing attack. Hence QB-RB and WR-RB are the worst combos.

THe bonus is that TD passes will count twice for you, but honestly unless you had the 04 Colts are your players, this would be a terrible strategy to get an entire offense. Matching a QB with a stellar TE isn't a bad idea though if you're trying to get combo TDs.

One guy in our league had Collins, Moss and Lamont Jordan and started each every week.....he almost went undefeated in the season and lost the championship by .27 points

worked for him, but once inawhile i will take a QB and his #1 wideout, but other than that i will avoid the same WR/WR or WR/TE from the same team.

As stated it is good if you have a QB - WR combo for td passes etc. but the down sides can outweigh the pluses. If your team gets shut out then you have double trouble and then there is the bye weeks to be concerned about.
