12 TEAM: RATE PLS! WHIR 100%!

Which team would you pick to win it all?


12 Team League
QBLeague Format: QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, WR/RB, TE, K, DEF

Standard Scoring

QB - Ben Rapelisberger, Matthew Stafford
WR - Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Jacoby Jones
RB - Ahmad Bradshaw, Mark Ingram, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Bush, Jerome Harrison, Willis McGahee
TE - Jermichael Finley, Jared Cook
K - Josh Brown
DEF - NY Jets

I was in the 9th position in a 12 team league. By the time it got to me there was only 1 RB worthy of a first round pick IMO and that was D-Mac, who I figure to be a risky pick especially with Andre Johnson on the board. Aaron Rodgers was already plucked and I still don't know how I feel about Vick this year. Should blow it up again but with his style of play the injury bug seems to be lurking in his shadow.

By round 2, the RBs still on the board felt like a reach when Megtron was still available. I took the gamble that Ahmad Bradshaw would still be available to me in round 3. That worked out fine.

Still, never thought I'd take 2 WRs with my first two picks.

thoughts:
-- Will Ingram be worth starting once the season gets underway
-- Not thrilled about my RBs but they're good enough to hold the team up when I have recievers like AJ and Megatron
-- I really like my RB bench in that there's good odds at least one of them will prove worthy a starting role at some point in the season.
-- I don't think my RB/WR flex position is entirely too strong
-- My WR depth sucks. Glad I have Jacoby Jones to put in if AJ gets injured but otherwise I'm counting on one of my backup RBs, Stafford, or Jared Cook to step up and prove worthy of a trade to a team in need for a WR 2 quality receiver.

Please rate. Will rate all in return!!

Should be a playoff team imo, if Marshawn has a solid year like I think he will.



thanks for the help with mine.

If you're looking for RBs, I think a low draft position puts you in a tough spot this year. Unless there's a surprising drop, none of the options feel like they're worthy of being 1st rounders. Johnson&Johnson is as good a start as any. As long as he's a starter, Lynch should be serviceable as your flex. Though that whole SEA offense is feeling really stinky this year. Between Big Ben, Ingram, and Finley it sounds like you did good work in the 4-6 round area.

I think you have a handle on your team's flaws. Essentially having no WR bench could be an issue. But I get what you're doing - stock-piling RB handcuffs. By the time your WR byes come around, you'll have a better handle on who you keep and who you dump. And if you can pick up a decent WR3 (or if JJ develops into one) you're in really good shape.

Thanks for reply on mine.

I gotta agree w guys above. Playoff caliber. WR depth could b prob. I would try and leverage some of that depth @ rb into a more solid wr.
