What do you think of my roster for 2012.

Postby 9520180 » Tue Jul 03, 2012 11:41 pm

Hi there, i know it's REALLY early to draft players already.. But we could just not wait!.... Anyway, what do you think of my team?, it's a 12 team league with points awarded for punt returns:

QB Aaron Rodgers
WR Victor Cruz
WR Antonio Brown
RB Arian Foster
RB DeMarco Murray
WR/RB Jamaal Charles
TE Jermichael Finley
K Jason Hanson
DEF 49's
BN Big Ben
BN Doug Martin
BN C.J. Spiller
BN Jacoby Ford
BN Kenny Britt

Looks good on paper... What do you guys think?

Well, you've got the top quarterback in the game and the top running back in the game, so that's a great start. The one thing I would be looking to do, personally, is to try and get a more consistent and reputable WR1. I don't expect a repeat performance from Cruz this year, but as a WR2, I think he would be just fine. I would maybe try packaging Big Ben and Britt for a receiver above Cruz.

I don't know how you got both Rodgers and Foster, but that alone could probably win you games. Your TE is 2nd tier, which is great. I agree that the only thing I would do is get a true #1 receiver. Cruz had a good season, but we've seen many have one good season. Brown is good as well, but also has his question marks. Your WR core is mostly potential guys.

FYI, the reason I got both Rodgerds and Foster is because last year I traded Chris Johnson in week #1 for DeMarco Murray and the other owners first round pick.... Got lucky with that last year... Not so much for the other owner... His first pick was #23 LMFAO!

Also, the reason I got Antonio Brown is that our league gives 1 point for every 10 punt return yards... Last year this guy gave me ~220 fantasy point because of that... Reason why I picked up Jacoby ford and Spiller as well...

Unless this is a 4 team league, you look great on paper. I think it's crazy you drafted this early, but you did very well

Lemme get this straight, u guys want to get someone better than Cruz with britt and Roth? U realize Cruz is ranked a top 5 Wr for every fantasy site right now? Also, why would he do worse than last year? He has chemistry with Eli, manningham left, now it's only him and nicks. Jacobs left so probably less running. I think he is going to have a monsterous season.

You have an unreal team. Top 3 rb, top qb, top 5 wr

7 Wes Welker (NE, 9)
8 Hakeem Nicks (NYG, 11)
9 Mike Wallace (PIT, 4)
10 Julio Jones (ATL, 7)
11 Victor Cruz (NYG, 11)
12 Brandon Marshall (CHI, 6)

I have a hard time buying into data that also has people ranking Larry Fitzgerald as #11. Kind of makes me skeptical of the rest of the data....
