Rate my two drafts and I'll rate yours

Postby Tim Riggins » Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:52 am

The first one was Saturday in a 10-team league with strange scoring settings. Nothing truly bizarre except that the commissioner changes the scoring slightly every year to try to engineer different positions into the first round. We get 4.5 points for each passing TD and various other weird things, but most are just slightly off from standard leagues. We start QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/TE/Flex/K/D. Flex is W/R/T.

1(6) Drew Brees
2 (15) Matt Forte
3 (26) A.J. Green
4 (35) Ahmad Bradshaw
5 (46) Willis McGahee
6 (55) Demaryius Thomas
7 (66) Torrey Smith
8 (75) Jermichael Finley
9 (86) Beanie Wells
10 (95) Evan Royster
11 (106) James Starks
12 (115) Nate Washington
11 (126) Ronnie Hillman
12 (135) Jay Cutler (same bye week as Brees, but couldn't pass him up any longer)
13 (146) Carson Palmer
14 (155) Garrett Hartley
15 (166) Bills D

My other league is more traditional. 12 teams, same starting positions, .5 PPR, 6 points per TD.

1 (keeper) Calvin Johnson
2 (20) Matt Forte
3 (29) Steven Jackson
4 (44) Ahmad Bradshaw
5 (53) Demaryius Thomas
6 (68) Philip Rivers
7 (77) Stevan Ridley
8 (92) Denarius Moore
9 (101) Kevin Smith
10 (116) Jacob Tamme
11 (125) Robert Griffin III
12 (140) Mikel Leshoure
13 (149) Stephen Gostkowski
14 (164) Doug Baldwin
15 (173) Bills D

Thanks for the ratings. I'll rate yours in return.

I like it! You definitely have depth at RB for both teams and your QBs are solid. I might be a little worried about WR depth, but it looks like you only start 2(?). You could easily trade the extra QB or RB and upgrade. I'd be very happy with both drafts though!

I see you targeted certain players for both teams - Forte, Bradshaw, De Thomas, Bills D. While I'm not particularly high on any of these choices for various reasons but they are still capable fantasy options no question.

In draft 1 you absolutely stole Cutler and Palmer but they are almost useless to you unless they attain trade value with good starts. Its clear your fellow owners were not high on them to begin with.

I like your WR options better in draft 1 due to the #3 and #4 options mostly. Nate Washington is a guy who seems to get no love but is productive nonetheless.

Obviously like your RB situation better in draft 2 Forte, S Jax and Bradshaw is a nice trio and a solid flex. Also they all catch which is valuable in a PPR format.

I like team 1 better overall due to edges at QB, WR and TE over team 2.

Of the two, I think I prefer the second.

I'm not a fan of your backs in the first league, but a can definately see a scenerio where they work out. If Bradshaw can stay healthy and hold off wilson, and Wells can do the same, your first team can be solid.

I think the second team is probably better, praticuarly in a 12 team league, though it might have a bit less upside. Megatron and Forte at the top can make up for plenty of deficencies. Overall, though, I think both teams are pretty average.

Best of luck; take a look at mine if you have time:
