I am trying hard to package a WR with either one of my RBs or Miller for a true #1 WR. No use having all that talent on my bench. I was very happy with all of the 'high upside' guys throughout the middle of the draft and late. I would hate to move, say, McCoy or Wells, as I like their potential to finish top 10 at the RB slot, but really want to have a solid #1 WR. I am basically hoping two of Crabtree, Smith (NYG), Nicks, Wallace and Maclin step up to top 10 or 15 production levels. With passing TDs counting as 6pts, starting 2 QBs is a must. I did end up with a total of 7 Week 8 bye guys, so I almost give up that week for a loss (though my opposition for that week projects to be near the bottom of the league). I didn't do this on purpose, but after I had three of those guys, I figured to tend that way (not by reaching, but going that route if I valued 2 guys the same) so that every other week that had byes, I could start anyone I wanted while my match-up would have a couple of guys to sit during that week. My depth + a WW pickup or 2 could surprise and maybe steal a win that week. I kinda like that it turned out that way, though missing the playoffs by 1 game would suck horribly.
I couldn't believe the QB frenzy that took place starting late 1st and going through round 4. Woulda loved to land 2 monsters there, but Eli should be a great #2, AND Garrard finished last year (with these scoring rules) ranked #29 overall, or the 14th QB.
To me, my biggest worry is actually my #1 pick, Michael Turner. I almost went Andre Johnson, or even thought of reaching for Rodgers, but Turner averages 1 TD a game for the Falcons. His receptions (or lack of) mean nothing in this league, but his health will mean a ton.
Here are some notable players on the WW. Anyone worth it yet? ( I will be watching Naanee closely, as I think he can breakout this year in SD)
Josh Freeman (QB TB)
Julian Edelman (WR NE)
Kevin Walter (WR HOU)
Benn Schilens McCluster Cribbs Gaffney Naanee Ginn Jr (returns?) Leon Washington Tate Julious Jones Larry Johnson Brian Westbrook Frad Taylor (NE) Jermaine Gresham Brandon Pettigrew Miami Carolina Denver Arizona
