Is it a bad thing to have too many players from one team??

Postby Slow Pitch » Tue Sep 25, 2007 10:06 pm

We start 1 Qb, 2 Rb, 3 Wrs, 1 Te, 1 K, 1 Def.

I have Romo, TO & Witten as starters every week. Is that too many players from one team? I realize week 8 I am in bad shape cause my whole team in on a bye having Alexander & Branch too....

those are all good players on high potent offenses, nothing wrong with that.

if you were playing Losman, Lynch and Evans or Huard, Larry Johnson and Bowe, then it might be a problem.

i would prefer to just take my pounding 1 week instead of having my studs spread out and potentially causing me 3 or 4 losses.

Well said, if you watched the Dallas-Chicago game last week, pretty much the only Dallas guys invovled in the offense were the 3 guys you have. I'd say run with those 3 as far as you can.

i agree, it sucks when one of your stud wr and/or rbs are on a bye week for a couple of weeks in a row. i rather have it all in one shot like week 6 this year. that said i have maroney,moss,morris on a team and works out fine. i think as long as your looking at top players in their respective positions your fine with this. cowboys are definatley a team thatll score so it should work out

yea usually if the team is not really good i wouldnt do it, because in tough matchups all those positions suffer and your team takes a hit...But with yours its not a problem, but its always a risk...like if you had brees, colston, and eric johnson, you probably thought you started the yr with a good lineup, then you would be stuck with 3 bust because the whole team stinks instead of just one player not doing well...

The problem with "taking a week off" (i.e. having a boatload of players with the same bye) is that if you're in a league with guys who know their stuff (I hate the term "competitive"...12 morons would make for a "competitive" league, seeing as how they're equally stupid) where only 4 of 12 teams make the playoffs then that game can be the difference between making the playoffs or not.

I'm not saying I wouldn't do it (I honestly don't pay much attention to byes when I draft anymore...I just go for BPA), but it can be a risky proposition.

As to having several players from the same team, that can be risky as well. Unless you're talking about the Colts there's a chance that if that "high powered" offense don't live up to expectations you're gonna be royally scee-rewed.

Bulger-S Jax-Holt
Brees-Bush-Colston

Before the season both those trios woulda looked pretty good. Now? Not so much.

It can be crushing, and if you were to have three, I'd say those would be the three to have. The good thing is, they are all in the passing game, and TE is usually a gravy spot. You take your lumps one week, which can be good. And if they keep it up, you just roll to the playoffs, and you gotta be in it to win it.

That being said, some guy in 2004 was in one of my leagues, had mcnabb, TO, westbrook, and basically smoked everyone. Well, it didn;t work out so well when he had no ammo for the playoffs.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Here is the thing...while I have Romo, TO & Witten...I stil have LT & Alexander as my RB combo.

It is a 12 team keeper league.

The only week I cant win I feel is week 8 cause I lose those 3 plus Alexander & Branch, plus my kicker J. Brown but who cares about that....
