8 Team Non-PPR Standard Scoring ESPN League (1st Pick), WHIR

Postby futbol57102at » Thu Aug 23, 2012 9:34 am

Hey all, I just finished off my draft and am comfortable with my team, but wanted to see what other people though.

QB:Matt Ryan
RB1:Arian Foster
RB2:Darren McFadden
WR1:Jordy Nelson
WR2:Steve Smith
Flex:Demarco Murray
TE:Fred Davis
DST:Steelers
K:Matt Bryant

BN:Doug Martin
BN:Jeremy Maclin
BN:Reggie Wayne
BN:Denarius Moore
BN:Jay Cutler

I do have a few questions, and can help in response if anyone wants to help...

1.)Should I have a backup QB in a 8 team league, or is this wasted benchspace?
2.)Due to Moore's hammy issues, should I just drop him and pickup a backup RB (pretty much all of them are avail except Tate,Gerhart, Hillis, and M. Bush.....hell, even some timeshare RBs are avail like Ridley, Ingram, Deangelo Williams), or maybe a healthier WR?

Thanks in advance for your help!

good team from the looks of it. Have not played in 8 team league b4, but should get you wins. as far as b/u qb. I say get a good b/u qb, te, then rb, wr, wr on ur bench. gives you 4 backs, 4wr and depth in case folks get injured or have byes.

Amazing RBs. Three first rounders in a 12 team league. I'd be leery of your WRs. I like Nelson and Smith, but would probably feel more comfortable with them as a #2. Your RBs may offset it, though. Points are points.

If Mcfadden and Foster stay healthy they may win you the league by themselves. You're extremely deep at running back I would look to move Murray or Martin at some point for a stud TE or a #1 wr like Green or Jones but I'm big on those guys.

I don't think you need a backup qb in an 8 team league they'll be someone available during your bye week. Moore isn't worth owning an 8 team league in my opinion.

In an 8 team league you really don't need a backup QB because the waiver wire should still have plenty available.

Your starting RBs/Flex are good, but with only Martin, who is unproven on the bench you are a little light. I would drop Cutler and pickup Ridley as some insurance if one of your starters go down.

As far as WR goes, you are a little light in strong WR1, but it is such a deep position, I would pay close attention to waivers.

Overall, an excellent team!
