12 team HTH - 9th pick - 2 RB/3 WR/1 QB league

Postby Cuffs » Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:06 pm

Pretty pleased with this team, esp. considering the draft happened 2 weeks ago, and some positive developments for Wells/F.Jones since then. What do you think of the roster? Will help in return.

1. A.Johnson
2. V.Jackson
3. D.McFadden
4. F.Jones
5. M.Schaub
6. K.Britt
7. Beanie Wells
8. Michael Bush (reached for him b/c I got McFadden)
9. Tim Hightower
10. Danny Amendola
11. Jimmy Graham
12. Kyle Orton
13. Matt Hasselbeck (waiver wire)
14. Harry Douglas (waiver wire)
15. New Orleans
16. Jason Campbell (waiver wire - will likely be dropped for kicker)

I went WR heavy b/c we don't play a flex, so having 3 top flight WRs is a real advantage. I had picked up Berrian, Jerome Simpson, and Tashard Choice, but dropped them for Harry Douglas and to spread my odds on a QB, as I'm not sold on Schaub and who knows what Orton will do under Fox.

You should be set at QB and WR. Your #3 WR could be better, not too sure how Britt or Amendola are going to do this year. Hightower could have a good year and it was a good idea picking up Bush. You'll really need felix jones to do as well as everyone is saying he will.

Pros and cons of your draft...

PROS:
If I'm understanding your post right, McFadden is a steal in the third round.

Also love the WRs.

CONS:
I'd be concerned about the lack of a true RB2 on your team. You've got good depth, and several guys who COULD become that guy in Jones, Wells and maybe even Hightower, but as of Week 1, you'll go in expecting McFadden to have to carry a larger portion of the RB-load in your starting lineup.

And Schaub + Orton is definitely a lower tier combo even for a 12-team league. Schaub is a worthy starter, but not an elite one, and Orton doesn't give you very much behind him.

OVERALL:
As long as one of the aforementioned RBs steps up, I think you'll do fine and will have the appropriate trade chips if you really need to make a move to improve at QB or elsewhere. But I'd be looking hard for additional RBs on waivers just in case.
BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

Thanks for the insight. Great post. I couldn't agree more. Yes, somehow I got McFadden in the 3d round (33d overall).
The theory with going WR-WR in a 3WR league for me is that I should be able to find one low-end RB2 out of all those RBs (Wells/Hightower/Bush/Jones) on a weekly basis, but no team will have 3 better WRs than I have. IMO, Johnson and VJax will both be top 5-7, and Britt will produce like a WR2 with Hasselbeck. Douglas/Amendola/and now Andre Brown (Pitt) will hopefully fill in when needed.

IMO, Orton may wind up having a better year than Schaub. Yes, he's low end, but with the Fox offense pushing the running game and making defenses play the box more, I feel like Orton might have an increase in quality even with a decrease in quantity. It's the risk. Generally when I draft I wind up having to pick between top QB/topWR/top RB in the early rounds, and I chose to err on WR and hope the midround RBs pan out.
