Auction Draft/Waivers-Bench now full-Howd I do? #WAHIR#

Postby jinxx » Thu Sep 08, 2011 7:09 am

Auction draft went well, but I didn't leave myself enough money to fill my bench so last night I had to put bids in for waiver picks and I finally have a full team.

How'd I do? One Major Weakness?

10-Team Auction Draft
Start: QB(1) RB(2) WR(3) TE(1) W/R/TE(1) K(1) D(1)

07 [RB] LeSean McCoy
05 [RB] Steve Jackson
08 [WR] Greg Jennings

05 [W/R/T] Reggie Bush
11 [TE] Jimmy Graham
07 [K] S Gostowski

I think you did really well. You've definitely got a competitive team. SJax worries me this year but I think Tolbert gives you a little depth (I'm not big on Matthews). You're deep at WR. All in all, great job!

How many teams in this league? I like this team a lot. Starting quality players at all the positions. I like it more in a 12 team than a 10 team, but its still good either way, I actually like your bench too, and based off the fact that those players were on the WW I'll assume its 10 team. It's a shame your league is not PPR because I'd like this team even better then. But definitely a good team.

Lend a hand?

Without knowing the number of teams in the league it is hard to give an exact opinion of the draft. I'm going to guess it was a 10-Team league, because I don't see how you assemble this team otherwise. If it is more than 10 you destroyed the competition. Every position has a stud or the potential to be a solid contributor. I don't even have a problem with your bench.

If this is a 10-team league you are definitely in the playoffs and have a good chance at the championship. If more than 10, you are the hands-down favorite for the title. You put together a great team.

No one in my league has as dominate of a team, so it may be a little more difficult to determine a front-runner. I would really appreciate your opinion if you have a sec:

Thanks for the input...this was a 10-team leauge, there are definitely some contenders in here, but I tried real hard to waiver a bench I thought would support my starters. Being an Auction league and Auction Waiver system, it's always a lot different than my other leagues.

Thanks again....

If you had to identify 1 weakness, what would it be?

Ha. The only thing I can find is that you have lots of byes on week 7. That could end up being a pain to fill your roster without dropping the packers or another player.

strong team overall

you QB is average at best, but everything else is great. however, i won't call your QB weakness, it's morel like "not strong, but okay"

i think you did great on saving money on big name player, but aim on solid talented player

G.Jenning+B.Marshall+M.Manningham is probably only 10-15 more expensive than Ajohnson alone, but covered your WRs much better than Ajohnson+nobody+nobody

same thing with RB, even though, McCoy might cost you quite a bit.

Thanks for the team feedback, much appreciated.
For a 10 team auction league I'm feeling you made out pretty well.
Nice RB's, Solid receivers who can all put up numbers, Maybe look for a better flex position guy is all i can say. Not really sold on Bush. Great defense and kicker also if that matters. Also, a nice bench to give yourself some depth. Good Luck!!
