Drafted 12/12, two TE flex strategy WHIR

Postby Mizou » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:05 am

Let me know what you guys think. This idea was brought up on the Football Talk board, and I've done a few mocks on it. Here's the final result for my league.

Standard scoring, passing TDs are 4 pts. QB, 3WR, 2RB, W/R/T Flex, TE, K, D/ST

QB: Tony Romo

WR: Jordy Nelson, Pierre Garcon, Malcolm Floyd, Randall Cobb, Brian Quick, Jon Baldwin (KC)

RB: Doug Martin, Kevin Smith, Toby Gerhart, Rashad Jennings, David Wilson

TE: Jimmy Graham

W/R/T: Rob Gronkowski

K: None

D/ST: Dallas.

Hmm interesting strategy taking Graham/Gronk back-to-back but IMO you're gonna have to move one of them and get a stud RB (I like Graham more just because he's basically the focus of the Saints offense whereas Gronk has Hernandez emerging as Brady's favorite target, throw in Welker and Lloyd and there is absolutely no way he even comes close to 17 TDs, IMO he'll be around 10 this year while Graham still has 12/13+ potential)..

Doug Martin is an excellent RB2 (especially in PPR), but I'm not too high on Smith as he seems injury-prone and the Lions flat-out don't run the football..Also Jennings/Gerhart will most likely only start a couple of games max, and most of your RBs, while extremely talented, are waiting in the wings until someone gets injured

Your WRs are also a little bit of a concern as well..while I do like Floyd emerging as Rivers favorite target (aside from Gates) this year, I think there is definitely room for improvement at WR3..I do like Garcon and Cobb has great potential, Nelson is another guy who has relatively little chance at reproducing what he did last year but we all know Rodgers will air it out

So basically at this point I would rank your team at about a B-...without it being a PPR league idk if your 2 TE scheme will work out best in your favor, I'd rather have a RB at the flex with a higher TD potential and would try and move Gronk for either a stud RB, or a second-tier RB and a second-tier WR..if you think having the two most dominant TE's in the league can overcome your lack at RB/WR then stick with your scheme, i just feel otherwise...

QB - Matt Ryan (J. Freeman)
RB - Arian Foster, Reggie Bush (Ballard, Starks, Bell)
WR - Julio Jones, Brandon Marshall (Nicks, Britt)
Flex - Eric Decker
TE - Jared Cook, (G. Olsen)
K - S. Graham
