Strategy for Yahoo-Salcap

Postby suckerpuncher » Sun Aug 27, 2006 3:39 pm

We're putting together a group of SalCap teams on Yahoo!'s SalCap site.
And since I don't want to finish last I wanted to ask if there's a special tactic in putting together a good team because I tried it last year with moderate success.

Is it better to get a stud RB and medium WR/QB. Or is it better to take Tier 2 players everywhere?
And what about TE/DEF/PK?

And what about BYE weeks? Keep the players and get 0 points or is it better to drop them and pick them up again later?
Last year it was hard to get the players back after I dropped them in a BYE week. After a couple of good games their value rose (e.g. from 6 million $ to 10 million $) but I could only sell them for the same price I bought them (6 million $) but when I tried to buy them again after the BYE week I had to pay the new price (10 million $) and so I was sometimes unable to get him, at least not without making significant changes on the rest of my roster.

Is there a good strategy in putting together a great SalCap team?

Thanks in advance.

I just took the top 2 RB (Tomlinson and Johnson) and then spent the rest of my money on undervalued players like Eli, J. Walker, A. Johnson, J. Horn, etc.

Its just like playing the stock market. Grab a couple blue chips and just dig deep. There are a lot of good value plays in there.

A little strategy I did this year for week one was to take Chicago's defense vs GB. I dont plan on keeping them all year but you couldnt ask for a better match up. In week two I will simply drop them and pick another matchup and use that free space to upgrade another position. You have to be carefull just playing matchups with the D because week by week you will be having to pick lower and lower with the good, consistant Ds moving higher and higher.

I like to look for great cheap deals at TE, K, and Defence and then load up on big time WRs, and RBs

Thanks guys. This is very helpfull. ;-D

But one more question:

What about bye weeks? Would you drop guys like Manning, LT, SA, LJ? Unless they underperform it will be very hard to get them back, right?
