How'd this baseball fan do in fantasy football draft? WHIR

Postby misterf » Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:36 pm

This is not my first fantasy football league. I generally hold my own in fantasy baseball, but I tend to do terrible in fantasy football. So let me know how I did. Do I have any hope for this season?

It's a 10-team, standard Yahoo league:

qb: Peyton Manning
wr: Calvin Johnson
wr: Mario Manningham
wr: Pierre Garcon
rb: Jamaal Charles
rb: Frank Gore
w/r/t: Knowshon Moreno
te: Kellen Winslow
k: Josh Brown
def: NY Jets

BENCH

qb: Joe Flacco
qb: Ben Rothlesberger
wr: Dez Bryant
wr: AJ Green
rb: Willis McGahee
te: Jimmy Graham

Thanks in advance! Of course, WHIR (to the best of my ability).

Your team isn't bad (in fact I think it's rather good) and I'd say there's hope! If it were me I would try and package some combination of Big Ben, Winslow, or Garcon for an upgrade at WR. I'm a Colts fan and I love Garcon, but I'm just not a big fan of having him in fantasy, especially if Austin Collie is in the game. Your RB's are great, and I expect Denver to start running the ball more under John Fox. You just do not need to hold on to 2 TE's and 3 QB's. I like Jimmy Graham a lot this year, so I think I would rather trade Winslow and go with him. Goo luck and help me if you can! ;-D

Just to address the 3 QB issue Riotide brought up:

The only reason I grabbed 3 qb's was because of the uncertainty re: Manning. When/if Peyton comes back at 100% the plan is to trade Flacco or (more likely) Big Ben. But I want to have some options if Peyton's injury lingers.

Yeah I see why you wanted options, but I think if you went with Flacco week 1 you'd be ok. Hopefully Manning goes Week 1 though. As for the FA market, I would add James Starks and drop McGehee.
