Rate My Roster! *WhIR

Postby jmacusmc » Mon Aug 15, 2011 3:16 am

Hey guys, rate my post-draft roster, standard format, 10 team.

QB - Matt Ryan
RB - Rashard Mendenhall
RB - Shonn Greene
RB/WR - Santonio Holmes
WR - Roddy White
WR - Mike Wallace
TE - Antonio Gates
D/ST - Bears
K - Josh Brown

Daniel Thomas
Hines Ward
Thomas Jones
LaDainian Tomlinson
Matt Cassel
Jacoby Jones

So I think I did fairly well, the only think im not too comfortable with is shonn greene, I had the choice of a fourth round decent RB or TE Gates whom I feel is the best TE in the nfl and a fantasy point harvester. I tried to get a few backup RB's but im not sure of where I stand at RB2

ANy tips?

I think you did great here....solid players all around. I have a good feeling about Greene. All signs point to Greene being the #1 guy with the Jets on a run heavy offense. Sure LT will steal some carries and TDs, but you didn't draft him to be your #1 guy. He's gonna be great for flex.

I can see you waited on QB which is fine. On average, there is only a 2-4 point difference between the #1 QB and the #10 QB each year. You did the right thing on loading up on RB/WR/TE talent. Besides, Ryan could be airing it out quite a bit this year. Plus you'll be getting double points with Roddy in towe. VERY smart move (I did the same thing myself). I love Daniel Thomas. Could have a breakout year.

My only recommendation would be to drop a player (I'd say Hines Ward, don't like him much this season) and pickup an extra TE. I love Gates, and he's a fantasy BEAST, but, there seems to be a lot of mystery around his foot, and he killed me a few weeks last year when he was expected to start and then at the last minute sat out. As a safety net....I think it'd be smart to do that now and not get bottom of the barrell pickings later.

Other than that....GREAT GREAT draft!

Not bad, not bad at all. One thing I'd focus on pre-season -- finding a stronger RB option to use in the Flex spot (or to help with bye weeks as you're a little thin at RB). When you can, adding a 3rd RB to the equation is better than adding a 3rd WR. They just average more points. To do that, consider trading Gates. Maybe package with your rookie RB. I know, Gates has been a beast in years past but I don't feel that trend is going to continue. He's older, damaged and on a team with enough weapons they don't need him as the outlet every play. Either way, good luck. ;-D
Thank God for Football Season.
