Did I mess up by drafting E. Manning and Brandon Jacobs

Postby tdnxxx444 » Thu Sep 06, 2007 12:47 pm

Was the 15th pick in a 16 team league.
1 QB, 3 WR, 1 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 K, 1DEF

QB: E. Manning, J. Harrington, D. Huard
RB: B. Jacobs, S. Morris
WR: M. Harrison, R. Moss, D. Henderson, B. Marshall
W/R: DeAngelo Williams
TE: Desmond Clark, Heath Miller
DEF: Miami
K: Jason Elam

This is my first draft. Did I mess up by picking Manning and Jacobs? Should I put someone else for my W/R?

There isn't anything that says you can't have a running back and a quarterback on the same team and win championships. Just cross your fingers and hope that New York scores and scores and scores. Pray for heavy use of screen pass especially. :-)
Thank God for Football Season.

You didn't mess up drafting the 2 of them IMO. I am, however, concerned that you are starting Sammie Morris as your 2nd RB.

There were hi hopes for Jacobs this year and alot of people thought Eli would have a bounce back year. Your lack of depth at Rb is gonna sting a little now tho.

It wouldnt have been to bad if they both didnt get hurt this week.

The biggest problem I have with players on the same team is if the team has a bad week, plays a tough def etc...it could mean that all your players on that team have a bad week.

I agree that the lack of depth at Running back is gonna sting more than ever now. I would dump one of those back up QB's and grab another RB.
