After an earlier thread about draft strategy I did a little comparison on the first place teams in the four leagues I play in and here are a few of the interesting things that I learned
All four have either Holt or Harrison (2 each)
All four have a #2 reciever in the top 10
Neither team has a top 3 rb
two of the teams dont have a top 10 rb
The top qb ranking for each team is 1, 6, 9, and 4
And here is the weird one- two of the teams have all of the following: Pittman, D Davis and D Jackson
Seems like taking a receiver early,qb in mid rounds, attention to the waiver wire(Davis) and good late round drafting (Jackson and Pittman) are the keys to success
I'm in first, with Holt and Bulger leading the way. My RB's have been average, and I own Pittman.
5) Warner (grabbed Bulger)
7) Onterrio (grabbed Pittman)
8) O Gary (grabbed, Gordon, W Green yesterday)
9) Vick (Doug Johnson as a week 5 bye sub)
10 C Johnson
12) Panther D
13) Raider D (grabbed Dolphin D)
14) Josh Brown
15) Nate Burleson (grabbed J Walker, A Boldin, P Price)
Price and Green were recent additions frustrated owners dropped, Green because of a Holmes/Green bye week dilemna.
Must have 2 QB, 4RB, 5WR/TE, 2D, 2K (no grabbing undrafted back-up QB's)
The meek ain't gonna inherit $#!%....'cuz I'll TAKE IT!
QB's: Pennington (Rd.3), Hasselbeck (Rd. 7), Bulger (Rd. 14)
RB's: Alexander (Rd.1), W. Green (Rd. 2), A. Thomas (Rd. 6), D. Foster (Rd. 15)
WR's: C. Johnson (Rd. 4), D. Boston (Rd. 6), D. Stallworth (Rd. 8), Conway (Rd. 9), A. Johnson (Rd. 11)
TE's: Shockey (Rd. 5), Crumpler (Rd. 12)
Def.: Panthers (Rd. 10), Rams (Rd. 16)
Kickers: Wilkens (Rd. 13), Carney (Rd. 17)
I lead the league in scoring, but will admit that I've gotten lucky a little. Why? Because the "Opponet's Points Against" me are below average. That tells me that I'm lucky. Other teams play their worst against my team. I just hope that I get lucky in the playoffs.
