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?
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.
