Keep 6 Tough Decisions, Keep 1: Tough Decision

Postby MadDog36 » Fri Jul 01, 2011 5:22 am

Unusual League Settings here: QBs, PPRs, Return Yardage Etc Counted Performance Bonuses and Penalties! I have to pretty much keep one of my QBs as they are slightly weighted.

What makes this tough is that Fitzy was a godsend last year, saved my season really. Lucky enough to snag Tebow off FA. However will he start? Can I waste a roster spot on a (starter?) I think he will but then again. Other issues: DeAngelo and Grant (whom both I like and both especially Grant are unsung players to watch this year) Starks - probably ends up with GLC and that's it Grant will be a horse this year. DeAngelo I'm not so sure about, where will he end up and how many carries will he get? See then there are Colston and Welker ;-D
QB Tim Tebow, Den QB
RB Rashard Mendenhall, Pit RB
RB Knowshon Moreno, Den RB
RB/WR Jerome Simpson, Cin WR
WR Brandon Tate, NE WR
WR Emmanuel Sanders, Pit WR P
WR/TE Blair White, Ind WR
TE Kellen Winslow, TB TE
D/ST Vikings D/ST D/ST
Bench DeAngelo Williams, Car RB
Bench Ryan Grant, GB RB P
Bench Wes Welker, NE WR
Bench Marques Colston, NO WR Q
Bench Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buf QB
Bench LaRod Stephens-Howling, Ari RB
Bench Joe Webb, Min QB
Bench Joe McKnight, NYJ RB
Bench Adrian Arrington, NO WR
Bench Legedu Naanee, SD WR
Bench James Davis, WSH RB

Choose one between: Gore, Turner, Lloyd, RunDMC, Bowe (already have Rodgers and Foster locked in btw - Qbs weighted in this league also) - slightly balanced Bowe+Turner nearly flanked each other in pts last year. Tier 2 RB = #1 WR

OK I cut out the middle as it just confused me. :-b

I would choose Gore out of the ones you want us to choose from.

Me to Indi.

Maddog - You list McFadden as a choice but he is not on your roster list. Same thing with Bowe.

BUT...if you can start 3 RB's and from your list of choices I would go Gore for one more year.

The first 'roster' needs 6 keepers. That second part is a DIFF team needing one keeper between the choices provided!

Mendy
Moreno
DWill
Grant
Welker
Colston


are your easy choices IMHO.

I understand that QBs are weighted differently, but EVERY QB is weighted differently in respect to the other positions...meaning that Tebow/Fitz may score more points than DWill/Grant/Colston, but they still only rank as QB 15-20 at best. Unless this is a big league, throw back the QBs.

Trade a RB as well for a WR.

Gore is still the single keeper.

Mendenhall, Sanders, DeAngelo Williams, Ryan Grant, and Wes Welker are the guys I would want.

I would probably take a chance on Tebow for the 6th keeper.


On your second team you can't go wrong on Gore or Turner. Gore has the advantage in PPR. Both guys are likely to miss a few games due to injury. However the timing of the injuries do bear some thought. How many of yall have lost a playoff or championship game because your main back Gore was inactive? How many due to Turner being inactive? Atlanta has a much better corp of receivers and a stable QB situation. I feel Gore is the more talented back, but I would keep Turner.

Top QB Scoring from team 1:

PLAYERS
Peyton Manning, Ind QB
521
Drew Brees, NO QB
496.5
Philip Rivers, SD QB
474
Aaron Rodgers, GB QB
467
Tom Brady, NE QB P
463
Michael Vick, Phi QB
433
Matt Schaub, Hou QB
433
Eli Manning, NYG QB
408
Carson Palmer, Cin QB
391
Matt Ryan, Atl QB 377

By Comparison:

PLAYERS
Arian Foster, Hou RB P
435
Chris Johnson, Ten RB
317
Adrian Peterson, Min RB
300

PLAYERS
Roddy White, Atl WR
310.5
Brandon Lloyd, Den WR
301.5
Percy Harvin, Min WR
286.5
Dwayne Bowe, KC WR
285

See a top QB potentially outweighs his counterparts, also a combo WR like Harvin is very valuable in our format. Its 14 teams with very large rosters. 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR flex RB/WR WR/TE TE K DST starting and 10 bench for each team. Available QBs to potentially keep: ehhhhh Chad henne LOL that's it. I want no part of the Dolphins QB situation!
