12 BIG MONEY League. PLEASE RATE! WHIR 100%!!!

Postby dtownsound8 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 10:04 pm

**NOTE:

This league is different in that points for yards (passing, receiving, rushing) are halved and there's 0.25 PPR. Passing TDs are only worth 4 pts while rushing/receiving TDs are worth 6.


12 teams
League Format - QB, 3xWR, 2xRB, TE, K, DEF


SCORING - Rushing/Receiving TDs = 6 pts, Passing TDs = 4 pts
50 yds passing = 1 pt, 20 yds rushing/receiving = 1 pt
2 bonus points awarded at 100 yds RECEIVING ONLY
0.25 PPR
the rest is Standard Scoring



QB - Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Chad Henne
RB - Ahmad Bradshaw, Tim Hightower, Michael Bush, James Starks, Ronnie Brown
WR - Andre Johnson, Hakeem Nicks, Mike Thomas, Antonio Brown
TE - Vernon Davis, Jared Cook
K - David Akers, David Buehler
DEF - Green Bay, Houston



...OH... and I should note:
*** This league charges for transactions, which is why I have 2 TEs, 2 Ks, 2 DEFs
*** I grabbed Rapelisberger in the late 7th round. I wasn't really targeting him but that far back I hard a hard time not taking him. He's my Manning insurance policy and potential trade bait later on
*** I took Henne as my 2nd to last pick because Big Ben and Manning have the same bye week (11)... and Henne will be playing against Buffalo that week
*** I realize my WR depth is weak but A) I'm banking on Brown putting up some decent #s once the season gets going and B) once it got to mid rounds the talent dropped off BIG time
*** not 100% on my RBs but I liek Bradshaw and while it's only preseason, Hightower is looking solid. Grossman sucks but he should at least keep opposing defenses honest. I'm counting on my WRs to carry me

Like your QB's (other than Henne is there anybody else on the WW?) WR's & TE are solid. Not sold on the RB's- maybe look to move one of your QB's for an RB upgrade once Peyton gets healthy? How many teams in your league?

Thanks for the feedback on my team.

Dump Henne, I can't think of a situation where he'd be a good play at QB...
I think you have a sneaky top two RB situation. Bradshaw should be pretty good this season. Hightower will catch people by surprise.

Receivers... yeah I think you're doing fine there- although Mike Thomas is really only valuable in PPR leagues. I don't think you get enough points per reception in your league to make him valuable.

TE's look good too, and I have a feeling you'll be starting Cook week in week out fairly soon. Sneaky on the Texans D too. Slight sleeper potential there.

Yea I agree with above really i think your season will be based on the performance of hightower and bradshaw, hopefully they dont get injured/benched, as far as receivers, you cant get any better since those guys will be in your lineup every week and QB and TE your fine, hopefully once season rolls around you will find that rb wavier wire gem if you can find that solid rb or if your rbs outperform expectation then you will be set. Honestly i would as well dump Henne and try and pick up a rb early during Waivers if someone gets injured etc..im sure Henne will still be around or you can swap out another decent QB once week 10 comes around its almost like a dead roster spot...

Rate mine thanks:

Very unique league you are in.
It would help to rate your team if you listed what round you snagged each guy for value and when you picked.
QB- Manning could be boom or bust, but Ben is a great #2
RB- They are iffy at best and I personally would have gone for guys who are used in passing situations.
WR/TE- Nice starters but i would have skipped on Ronnie Browns corpse and Henne and added more depth.
Man up and pay for some transactions and you could be in good shape. ha ha ;-D
QB- Vick
RB- D. Brown-Benson
WR- Megatron-Green-Floyd (SD)
TE- Graham
K- Alt
Def- Seattle
Luck-Tate-Hunter-Pitta-Britt-Tex Def

Awesome qbs. I like the WR depth a lot. As others have said, I'm not sold on your rbs. But if Hightower has the season he is speculated to have, you may turn out to have a playoff team.
Pretty decent team.

Not in love with your RBs, but everything else looks good. I'd drop Henne if I were you since he won't play for you.
