Draft Strat for these cat. settings and roster positions? WH

Postby bklmu » Fri Aug 17, 2007 2:05 pm

These are the settings for my league. Receivers seem to be getting a few more points than usual. Which RB's will also get a lot of receptions? How many WR/RB should I draft, should I draft two RB in the flex positions? Should I get the backups for my two #1 RB in the flex positions? What should be my draft strategy? Any other comments? Thanx for the help.

Yahoo, 8 teams, Drafting 7th, Weekly H2H, Max Moves: 15

Let yourself be a nerd and create a spreadsheet. Yes, the WR position is competetive with the RB position. But also beware that RBs such as SJAX had a lot of receptions last year.

The average starting RB (on your team) puts up about 1200yds, 8 TDs = 168pts (not including receptions)

The average starting WR (on your team) puts up about 1000yds, 90 rec, 8 TDs = 193pts

If you are at the tail end of your draft board (i.e. you are drafting 9th out of 12) I would grab a top WR for you 1st pick, since you need to fill the spots.
