love my team, tell me why it sucks

Postby ironchef » Sat Aug 27, 2011 9:37 am

I'm really liking my team. However, I'm depending on Felix Jones to not suck. I have a chance to trade him for SJax. Or maybe trading one of my WRs for a Gore/MJD/Forte type. What are your thoughts? Thanks and WHIR!!!

10 team Yahoo, 1 ppr

QB - Big Ben, Stafford
WR - Megatron, Vjax, Welker, Britt, Moore, Meachem
RB - McCoy, Felix Jones, Hightower, Tolbert, Starks
TE - Jimmy Graham
K - Rackers
D - probably dropping Meachem for SF or AZ for their wk 1 matchup

8 LeSean McCoy(Phi - RB)
13 Calvin Johnson(Det - WR)
28 Vincent Jackson(SD - WR)
33 Felix Jones(Dal - RB)
48 Wes Welker(NE - WR)

Yeah you'll need Felix Jones to have a good year. I'm still not sure how they are going to use him, but he'll definitely be the main guy with Barber being gone. Your WR's look pretty solid with lance moore as a backup.

Solid team. I'd be tempted to see if I cold trade VJax or Welker (or even CJohnson) for a top-tier RB. You get a flex player, so IMO you only need 2 starting caliber WRs, and you have 4 (incl. Britt). I think VJax is poised to have a huge year, so maybe you wouldn't get the value out of him that he's worth. But in the past even though he puts up good numbers, his number of receptions is on the low end for elite receivers (vs. Welker's, whose is high as hell).

I drafted F.Jones high in a league where I went WR heavy, and like you I'm relying on him to be an RB2. Hightower is very likely to get you RB2-3 production, so he's your flex. Tolbert will be a solid first RB off the bench. If you can get a good RB2-3 in case F.Jones gets injured or his production lags a bit (which is the fear), you'd be more confident.

Good team though. Gotta love F.Jones & McCoy's potential in PPR format. Hightower too.

Your team looks awfully similar to mine... Your QB's are solid, and Stafford has nice upside for a back-up. Your WR's are absolutely fantastic, you could definetly look to move one of them if you wanted. McCoy is a nice #1, but after that it gets a little interesting. I personally think that Felix Jones will have a great year, but he could very easily have a bad year meaning you would be stuck with Hightower as your #2 which is farm from optimal. In all honesty, I think Jones will end up the year as a solid #2 RB. TE is w/e, think you'll end up being fine there. Rate mine?
