Just how huge can one player be for your team..

Postby jdsun1 » Thu Nov 23, 2006 7:36 pm

I just checked the guy in first place in my yahoo public league and he has not made one move all season long and even has domanick davis as one of his starting runningbacks. So how the heck is his team 9-2 and in first place??? LT! I wish I could draft a team and then come back at the end of the season and see that I won without doing a thing.

And that's exactly why all public leagues are a total joke. :-t

There is a guy in my league who is in first place with a 6-4 record and has Dominic Davis also. But I am playing him this week with Romo - 32pts and I have LT vs Oak on Sunday. There is no way he is going to squeek by me with a win. As you can see in my sig, even thought I have Romo, LT, Dunn, Colston, im still in second place to a guy with only 1 loss and I was the one that gave it to him. But that is the price for playing public leagues.

Well, with the way LT/2 has been playing this year, it's not too surprising to find teams that are basically mediocre in first place because they have LT/2. Averaging 3-4 TDs a week means you can just about leave your entire lineup empty and you can still win.

Actually...isn't it a good thing this guy is not paying attention to his team? If he is in lst place now with just one RB...imagine what his team would be like with another one to complement LT.

Actually more than anything...is shows just how much of a luck factor is involved in fantasy football. Criticize public leagues if you want....but he would have an even better team if he were paying attention. For once...the other managers ought to be praying that this guy does not decide to show up now.

Umm... In my PPR league WRs can be absolutely monstrous for a team. Teams usually score around 100-120, 120+ being a pretty good week, under 100 being pretty bad. I know I have Holt and Evans. Holt had about 42 on his 3 TD week and Evans had 50 last week so that's almost half my points there. Plus I have Colston at TE and in a PPR he's just dirty. He routinely racks up 20-30 points while most TEs are lucky to get 10.

In traditional scoring competitive leagues, a year like LT is having can make a good team dominant or a bad team competitive. He scores twice as many points as a good many other teams' No. 1 backs. That's a huge differential. In Peyton Manning's 49TD year where he made so many teams, he scored 372 points in 15 games or 24.8 points per game. This year LT has 277 through 10 games, or 27.7 points per game, even more dominating.

I'd be surprised if in a competitive league, the LT owner isn't atleast making a bid for the playoffs. In my 5 competitive leagues the LT owners are 10-1, 10-1, 9-2, 9-2, 8-3. All are in first place except one (2nd, 9-2) and all have high points scored in the league.

Since he started on his TD binge 6 weeks ago, he's averaging 36.3 points per game, 20+ points per game more than any other back except LJ and Parker. In almost all of my leagues, a 20 point per game differential would make any team in the league atleast a playoff team.

One player doing what LT is doing can definitely make a team's year.

I actually tested out CBS baseball last season and I drafted my team and never checked back (public league) for the rest of the season. I ended up winning the league by a LARGE margin. Looking at the final stats my team was borderline unfair :).

SJax/Holt/Bulger used to carry my team (the 3 TD game to Holt from Bulger was insane), then Pace got hurt and now I am seriously worried about Bulger.
