Newbie in a league with defense and defensive players

Postby southernSteeler » Mon Sep 10, 2007 5:58 pm

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.

QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R, K, DEF, D, DB, DB, DL, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

I heard that is a pretty tough point system, but I don't really know. I already made some moves today and changed my lineup some.

My starters are:
Drew Brees
Reggie Wayne
Isaac Bruce
Brandon Marshall
Joseph Addai
Reggie Bush
Kellen Winslow
Lamont Jordan

Bench players offense:
Ronald Curry
Reggie Brown
Ahman Green
Marshawn Lynch
Chris brown

Defense - New England
Bench Defense - Indy

Kicker - Jason Hanson

D - Donnie Edwards
DB - Chris Hope
DB - Oshiomogho Atogwe
DL - Kirk Morrison

I picked up Chris Brown, Kirk Morrison, Oshiomogho, Brandon Marshall and Ronald Curry today. I dropped Cato June, Shawn Taylor, Deion Branch, Jacoby Jones, Heath Miller today.

I have some options, seeing as though we only have 8 teams. I am not confident in my WR's other than Wayne.

Some players available vie Waiver are:

TE's- Dallas Clark, Justin Peelle, Eric Johnson, Nate Jackson
WR's - Drew Carter, Reggie brown, Deion Branch, Shaun Mcdonald, John Brussard, D.J. Hackett
RB's - Carnell WIlliams, Julius Jones, Jerious Norwood, Deshaun Foster, Lewhale White
QB's, Matt Shaub, Jay Cutler, Brett Favre, Alex Smith, Losman, Pennington, Garrard

So, any advice you can give would be great. I am a newbie at this.

Thanks,
blessings

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.

Good luck ;-D

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.

Hope this is helpful.
