This is my first year ever doing this, the first week is over for me already. Brees pretty much killed me, netting me a -3 in my league. The league has only 8 teams, so I do have open players, but I still can't get a receiver other than Wayne who I like. We are on Yahoo for our league. Here is how the league points are set up.
Heres a tip for your IDP (individual defense players)
Yahoos ranking of IDPs is for some reason severly flawed. Do not use their numerical rankings, as it is worthless for fantasy purposes.
This is what you do.
Go to the Free Agent list of "DL or DB". Sort by the 2006 stats, and then click on points total. That will show you in order of the top point scorers last year that are free agents. My personal favorite is the tackling machine DeMeco Ryans, I have him in a few leagues.
If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me, I am new to the forum but a fantasy veteran.
D/DL - DeMeco Ryans, London Fletcher, Antonio Pierce, Rocky McIntosh, Zach Thomas, Kieth Bulluck, Donnie Edwards, Lance Briggs, Lofa Tatupu, Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Patrick Willis(Rookie) DB - Champ Bailey, Antoine Winfield, Bob Sanders, Chris Hope, Sean Jones, Rande Barber, Jermaine Philips, Eric Wright, Charles Tillman, Brian Dawkins
I am in a big league too. So, I had to do my own research also.
