Did you have the guts to go WR/WR this year?

Postby FatFoot » Sun Sep 17, 2006 4:48 pm

Because if so, chances are you're 0-2.

I didn't go WR/WR, but I got pretty much the same WRs I would have gone for, if I had drafted that way, and I've taken a beating thus far.

LT is, as of this moment, the clear winner of the top 3 RB debate. The top 3 WRs are all underperforming.

I really don't see why anyone would go WR/WR. You can get a nice running back in the first round and then 2 receivers.

I got Clinton Portis in the first then I turned around and picked up Chad Johnson and Torry Holt.

You got Torry Holt in the third round? I don't think most people had that chance....

In what sense? Chad had 1 TD and okay yards. Antonio Bryant and Laveranues Coles (middle/late rounders, both on my team, along with Chad, Moss, and TO.) both outperformed him today.

In my 8 Team $$ League my first three picks were SA, Holt, Marvin. H**l, my whole flippin' team is underperforming. Another week, another loss. Trying not to freak, but I need a W in week 3 or my season may be over early.

I got home today at half-time in the late games, losing 51-101 to my opponent (Plax, LT, Marvin etc) and I am kind of stunned that I've made a pretty big comeback, in 1 half of football. The middle round WRs are paying off BIG so far. If I had only gone with stud WRs, I would be eating it right now, big time.

What's really nuts is that had I put Rex Grossman in, I'd have had the game locked up by now. As it stands, I need 14 points out of TO and Leftwich combined.

I think it'd be worth checking in on the WR/WR concept throughout the year, to see how it has worked out for those who drafted that way.

In very similar fashion, I had an early pick so I took LJ and missed McGahee in the 2nd round by one pick. So I went with Holt and Marvin as CJ, S. Smith, and Owens were off the board.

Marvin hasn't caught a TD yet but he's been over 100 yards in both his games so far. Holt needs to step it up though.

I went LT2/TO/Johnson with essentially the same picks. I thnk I am going to be 1-1 this year unless TO shows some PHilly magic tonight.

I went WR/WR and took Smith and Harrison, then Kevin Jones C Taylor and F Taylor. I'm 1-0 and am down 14 points this week with Bledoe playing and F Taylor tomorrow. He has S Moss still. So a good chance I might be 2-0. This was a 14 team league. Not bad with my best WR sitting.
