First place teams

Postby stinky » Tue Nov 04, 2003 12:32 am

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

Well, im 9-0 in my money league with this team and I don't even have a decent #1 wr. Having the top 2 rb's and QB help make up for it B-)

I'm in first, with Holt and Bulger leading the way. My RB's have been average, and I own Pittman.

1) Faulk
2) Taylor
3) Holt
4) Ward
5) Warner (grabbed Bulger)
6) Porter
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
11) Longwell
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)

I think it would be more useful if we knew were they drafted, in addition to knowing who they have. Holt is performing like a #3 overall draft pick, so that helps things a LOT.

I'm the top team in a 12 man league, for now at least, and I have both Holmes and Ahman Green. I'm weak at WR, Def, and QB, but have Gonzo at TE.

QB: Steve McNair

I'm in first place in a money league with the following core players that have not changed since the draft:

Cpep, Harrison, LT, Jamal Lewis

They're the only originals left from the draft.

I'm now 8-1 in a $$ league.

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.

Good Luck Guys!
