Lost week 1, what to do?

Postby rasmusDoh » Tue Sep 13, 2011 10:56 am

So i got my ass kicked by no less than 50 points this first week (it's a PPR league btw).

Some of it was that he has Tom Brady and Wes Welker + Matt Forte who also had a good week..

I have the following team:

Week 1 starters:
Matt Ryan (sucked and cost me a lot of QB points)
Ray Rice (good decision to not bench him against the steelers)
Frank Gore (didn't even score a TD, so i didn't get near the amount of Pts i expected from him)
Andre Johnson (nice)
Larry Fitzgerald (got me way too few pts! Really disappointed with this guy)
Vernon Davis (decent i guess.. a TD would have been nice though)
Beanie Wells (had a really nice game, got him from FA mainly for that game)
Sebastian Janikowski (pretty good game!)
Steelers DEF (F you steelers.. -3 pts.. I thought i got myself the best DEF in the draft..)

Bench:
Matt Schaub (was really in doubt whether to start this guy or Ryan.. Schaub sucked too)
Jahvid Best (decent i guess, again maybe a TD)
Miles Austin (didn't wanna start this guy against Revis, but guess that wouldn't have been a problem)
Brandon Marshall (didn't know if this guy was gonna suck, but he did pretty good)
Darren McFadden (got him from a trade that didn't go through until today, so couldn't start him)
Hakeem Nicks (got him from a trade that didn't go through until today, so couldn't start him)


Most of all i'm in doubt what to do at the QB position.. It's a 6 man league, so i'll be facing Vick (week 2), Rodgers, Brees and Rivers the coming weeks.
Really hope this way a one-time bad-week, cause my two QBs sucked big time..
I might be able to trade myself to Roethlisberger, who is on the bench at the team with Rodgers.. But he sucked too in week 1..
Maybe pick up Flacco/Stafford/Newton from FA?

What would you do? I don't know how useful the Projected Points feature is, but according to that, my upcoming opponent will get 17,4 more QB pts than me.. That's not optimal!!

Other place i'm getting beat big time in Projected Pts is at TE, where he has Gates.. Hard to do something about that though.. Only option would be to bench Davis and pick up Gronkowski or Hernandez from FA..
What would you do here?


Thanks

No need to overreact to week 1. I would sit tight for another week.

One thing I do notice, is that I think the benches are way to big for a 6 team league

I agree. It was just a tough week. I know all about them VJAX, CJ2K, and Hillis all had no scores.

About the benches, it's my first time ever playing Fantasy, and it was meant to me a 10 man league. Just couldn't find 4 more people in time.. So never really thought of changing bench size! :)

Anyway seing that this is a 6 man league, i (and most of the other people) have a lot of elite players. Some of them underperformed in week 1, but i still find that i have some sort of "luxury" problem, deciding who to start.

When you have RBs Rice, McFadden, Gore, Best and Wells who do you start each week?
Same with A. Johnson, Fitzgerald, Nicks, Austin and Marshall!
The term "always start your studs" is difficult here.
Anyone you would start every week (except for bye)? I'm thinking Rice and A. Johnson, but again i don't have any experience, so any help on this is much appreciated!

What do you think about this line up for week 2:

Schaub
Rice
McFadden
A. Johnson
Fitzgerald
V. Davis
H. Nicks

Maybe put Nicks in WR2 and swap Fitzgerald for Wells?
Or should i give Fitz another chance?

Roll with Rice and Johnson - then play match-ups for the others and hope for the best. That is all you can do. With the set-up, every week you can play the what-if game. Just make sure that your line-up prior to the games is the right decision then you have nothing to worry about.

not to hate, but the problem might not be your team, but you.

having McFaddy on the bench was shameful....didn't realy like Ryan vs Chi defense on the road either..Shaub was the play as well.

you have to start McFaddy each and every week....bench Gore

As i wrote, i didn't actually receive McFadden (and Nicks) until today - because of trade review settings. So even though i was indeed definitely gonna start him, i hadn't received him to my squad yet! :/


That being said, i guess i'd like some help for this week's starters then.
I'm gonna go with Schaub vs MIA - don't want Ryan vs Eagles!
Starting Rice and McFadden as RBs and A. Johnson as WR1.

So i need a WR2 and a Flex. What 2 of the following do you think would be the best solution?:

Larry Fitzgerald VS Redskins
Hakeem Nicks VS Rams
Miles Austin VS 49ers
Brandon Marshall VS Texans

Frank Gore VS Cowboys
Jahvid Best VS Chiefs
Beanie Wells VS Redskins


Hope you can help me out! :)
