I NEED HELP PLEASE!!!

Postby aalkatrio » Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:26 pm

This is my first Fantasy Football draft and my friends involved are all experienced players. This was a live 12 man snake draft, and I don't want to ask them for help because I don't know if they'll steer me in the wrong direction in order to win, so I'm asking for help. I already drafted a team and I was wondering if I should keep my starters or start swapping players. Also, I would like opinions if my team is descent or not. Again, I don't know much about football players so I'll take any advice, thank you in advanced.

Starters:
QB: Ben Roethlisberger
RB: Rashard Mendenhall
RB: LeSean McCoy
RB/WR: Felix Jones
WR: Dez Bryant
WR: Braylon Edwards
TE: Jimmy Graham
D/ST: Chargers
K: Alex Henery

Bench:

Santana Moss
Willis McGahee
Lance Moore
Tim Hightower
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Todd Heap
Derrick Ward

You got yourself some really good depth at RB. QB strength is average, but Big Ben should put up decent, consistent numbers for you, and Fitzpatrick may end up with some big games like last year again. Where you're going to need to upgrade is WR, as you don't really have a legit #1 receiver on your roster. As for your #2 receiver, I'd prefer Moss over Edwards but neither are great options.

Check out the WW to see what receivers are available, but you may have to give up a good RB to get a strong WR. Once you have something in mind, hop over to the Draft/Trade/Keeper forum and post what you're contemplating there to get a feel from others here what they think.

Good luck this year, and welcome to Fantasy Football!

Awesome, great advice. Yea most of the people involved aren't even thinking about trading before the regular season. I have 12th on the draft out of 12 so I had to do my best with the position I was in. I'm trying to ask someone if they are interested in trading Hines Ward (on his bench) for anyone on my bench but he hasn't returned my email. No one has even edited their trading block yet. So i think for the first few weeks I might be stuck with my current team.

Also, do you think I should drop someone off my bench for Antonio Brown?

RBs back go quick now a days, so you did good there. I'm not a Big Ben fan, but he is pretty consistent. Just stock up a little at WR, and I think you'll be alright.
