Is having Fitzgerald, Boldin, and Edge a bad idea?

Postby superslugger616 » Tue Aug 29, 2006 8:37 pm

I drafted all three in one of my leagues, with picks in rounds 1, 3, and 4. Was this stupid of me, or could this play out nicely?

It would be a bad idea to have Rudi, CJ, and Housh. No matter how potent the offense, WR1, WR2, and RB from a team is putting way too many eggs in one basket each week.

Some weeks it will be good and some weeks it will be horrible. The main issue may be that you have limited your ceiling somewhat each week, as it will be difficult for the three to go off and score huge points together on any given week.

Having Edge/Boldin or Edge/Fitz wouldn't be bad, but like they said: having all 3 will mean some absolute downer weeks. I'd try and engineer a trade to break up your monopoly.

How did you miss out on Warner!?? It's a bad idea because the Cards are not going to score 30+ points a game and do it both on the ground and through the air. Shop them all around and see what you can get. Don't sell low just because of this though. Should be able to get value out of all of them.
The facts have no meaning.

how is boldin around in round 4 in the first place?

either way, if you're in a weekly h2h league, then it's not recommended to have most of your top point scorers on the same team... I doubt you're in a league in which total pts at the end is all that matters, but if that's the case, then you're fine although it's still risky if something happens to the team (warner going down and leinart not playing well, significant injuries to the o-line, etc.)
All of my analysis is based on PPR

I don't think it's bad at all, but only because you should have VERY little trouble shopping Boldin or Fitz. And you should shop one of them, for the reasons others have stated.

I do think that the whole idea of having several players from the same team being a big mistake is overhyped... in this instance, you're probably still looking at having 2 of the top 10 receivers in the game on your team. The only reason I don't like Edge on the same team is that I don't like Edge for this year... but if you got him in the second or third round, that's pretty much a no brainer.

If you keep them, the problem you face is that when AZ has a bad day overall, FF-wise, you have a bad day. But really, it's the same thing as having any 2 WRs and a RB on your team have a bad day. It's GOING to happen. And I do think that more often than not a bad day for AZ in the air is still going to be a good day for 1 of those guys, and an okay day for the other.

thanks for the input...i offered fitz and deshaun foster for steve smith, with foster being of little value to me because i have edge ronnie and westbrook...its an 8 team league so losing foster doesnt hurt much

I think that's a terrible offer personally.....Westbrook is going to get hurt at some point this season, it happens every year, then you will have zero RB depth without Foster there. You are way overpaying for Smith with that offer....

You'd also be screwed during the bye-week. You can usually deal with having slightly less than usual production from a back up at 1 position but 3 positions will probably guarantee a loss that week.
