If you don't mind, post the rest of your lineup.

It looks to me like you followed my personal strategy of just waiting on a QB. If you got Fremman, I consider you lucky.

In my league, Freeman was taken as a QB2 right before my pick (actually, i wasn't gonna pick him there but the next round) I wait on QBs. In my standard scoring league, a guy who only throws 5 INTs is a valuable commodity. Not that Freeman is better than an elite QB.

It's just that, at the point in the draft where everyone is taking an elite QB, you can take another starting RB or stud WR. Then get Freeman later. Hopefully, you have the RBs to go with a pick like Freeman. that's why you should post your lineup.

I like Freeman as you can tell. But in my standard scoring league, QB efficiency is about as key as big stats as long as you have the RBs or WRs to make up the difference.

I like your squad except for the last 5 of your bench. BUT...it looks like your rosters are huge so I guess there are no free agents worth choosing from.

But If you already figure you'll never use your bench players, why not fill your bench with 2nd string RBs and be ready if someone gets demoted (or injured)

I think Freeman will have a good year. Besides, in a 2 QB league you are going to have to overpay to get an elite one, so I'd stick with what I have.
