My league and projected keepers

Postby Those About To Rock » Tue Aug 23, 2011 1:29 am

I'm looking for more overall general strategy. I've been posting around on here all summer waiting to get to this post! Our positions:

QB RB RB RB/WR WR WR TE K DEF (I'll refer to the RB/WR as flex) and 6BEN

8 man league, so pool is deeeep.

My keepers are 3x RB and 2x WR. So my NEEDS are QB, TE, and Ben (I play def week to week since we have FA instead of waivers)

Here are the list of the better players in the pool at each position and what each player needs:

Philip Rivers
Tom Brady
Matt Ryan

Reggie Wayne
Mike Williams (TB)
Dez Bryant
Jeremy Maclin
Brandon Lloyd
Chad Ochocinco
B. Marshall
AJ Green
Julio Jones

Shonn Greene
DeAngelo Williams
D. Thomas
R. Mathews
law firm
felix jones
beanie wells


Our 'flex' is only RB or WR

Pick 1: RB1, WR1, Flex, TE
Pick 2: QB, RB2, Flex
Pick 3: Flex, TE
Pick 4: QB, Flex, TE
Pick 5: Flex, TE
Pick 6: ME
Pick 7: WR1,Flex
Pick 8: WR1, WR2, Flex (had CJ), TE

Pick 9: WR2, Flex, TE //assuming WR round 1
Pick 10: Flex //assuming WR round 1
Pick 11: ME again
Pick 12: TE //Assuming flex R1
Pick 13: Flex, TE //Assuming QB R1
Pick 14: TE //Assuming Flex R1
Pick 15: me again

That's their needs and since it's snake, I lined up what I projected through R2 (I get two R2 picks). My thoughts are that R1 I have to get a QB. If pick 2 and 4 get Brady/Rivers, that leaves me with Ryan -- a pretty solid choice, yes? But then, since no one needs a QB at that point, I've been considering taking the best RB value available in R1. Then R2 I can try to pick up another RB/WR/TE with my first pick and, since no one new needs a QB, try to get Ryan as my 2nd pick in the 2nd round?

OK, so your starting RB and WR are all taken care of but no depth. IT will all come down to value to start. Take the BPA in the first round unless Brady or Rivers falls to you. If they do, I would grab one of them. I would pass on Ryan though. I can see


all going before you. Grab Brady or your RB, then 2 picks later go either Gates or BPA at RB or WR.

Well, I know pick 4 plans on QB -- he was tormented over dropping Rivers into the pool. I also theorize #2 will want Brady (who I dropped into the pool :( but he may also just see the value of getting Reggie Wayne. I predict Greene goes 1st overall. I really don't foresee Wayne coming to me, I'm looking probably into Thomas from Jac as a backup later. What I do expect is DeAngelo, Hillis, and Blount to be available. I'm not really settled on any of these guys having a great performance though, but I'm scared of Williams injury risk.
