How many teams in the league and is it a ppr(points per reception) league?

Your team is very solid, especially at rbs, but it needs wrs. I wouldn't rely on Collie too much. While when he's healthy, he's amazing, he had 3 concussions last year alone; he's an injury waiting to happen. That leaves you with nicks and williams, and williams isn't that good. I would trade a qb because having 3 qbs is excessive. Eli is the better fantasy qb, so he might have more value. Otherwise your team seems pretty good.

Thanks!
10 teams. And I believe the scoring is pretty standard:

Every 10 receiving yards (REY10) 1
2pt Receiving Conversion (2PRE) 2
TD Reception (RETD) 6

i love the choice on collie this year i think if he stays healthy gonna have an upside year , i like britt know that cj2k is still in hold out........rb core is amazing............i really am not a fan of Nicks only cuz he only had a few good games last year and was injured for bit and i know hes talented but he is a high risk and probably ranked way higher than he should be.

It's H2H, points-the default on ESPN I believe. Is that PPR?
I'm in over my head!

I believe that the default espn is not ppr. PPR just means that each time a qb gets a completion, a runningback gets a carry(rushing attempt), or a wr catches a ball, they get one point, in addition to the points they get for the yards gained. In ppr leagues, runningbacks are much more valuable than wide receivers because running backs carry the ball (15-20 times per game) more than wide receivers catch the ball (5-10).

Thanks for the response. I would like your take on it, as my team is light on WRs.
Based on what you explained, it looks like it is PPR. I see this in the scoring settings: 2pt Rushing Conversion (2PR) 2pt Passing Conversion (2PC) 2pt Receiving Conversion (2PRE)

That isn't a ppr feature; receiving extra points for 2 pt conversions are standard. Just to be clear, a 2pt conversion is when a team, after scoring a touchdown, instead of kicking the ball for the extra point, they run a play, either running or passing, to get the ball into the endzone for 2 points. Since teams typically do not go for the 2pt conversion, fantasy players get extra points for it.

In a ppr league, a player would get a point for EVERY reception/carry/completion the player has even if the play goes for negative yards or doesn't go for a td.

You currently have two good receivers, collie and nicks, but collie is injury prone. You have britt as a backup, which is pretty good. Williams, I don't know too much about. You should really consider trying to trade a qb, not rodgers obviously, for a decent wr. Look for teams that need a better qb or even a backup qb.

You probably should know that this is only my 2nd year of fantasy football and my first in a non ppr league, so my knowledge is very limited.

Thanks for the feedback. H2H is all I have ever done, I did a team like 5 years ago, but I'm nowhere near as up on it as I should be.

Maybe drop flacco for Lee Evans, who is on waivers?
