Big $$ league, from 5th spot. Thoughts?

Postby GnG » Mon Aug 27, 2012 12:27 am

How do you think I did? This is for my big money league, 12 teams, drafted from 5th spot, 0.5 ppr, everything else ESPN default scoring.

Wanted to grab matt ryan in the 4th but was taken a couple picks before me.. Eli was already gone and I didnt want rivers. Little nervous about romo because of his schedule, questionable offensive line and inured receiving core. What do you think? I was also debating Chris Johnson, McFadden or Calvin Johnson for my 1.05 pick.. What do you think? Rice, foster, mccoy and rodgers were already gone. I was able to get doug martin in the 6th, pretty happy about that. Would you rather have had pettigrew or fred davis?

Thanks for you're help in advance! WHIR

For a 12 man league, I think that your team ended up pretty solid.

Strong WR and RB, and good depth on the bench with Benson, Williams, and Young. I wouldn't worry too much about Romo; he'll be fine. He's looked really good in preseason, and it will only get better once Witten and Austin are back 100% healthy.

I'm a little sketchy on Fred Davis. I was hopeful for him thinking that RG3 would target his TE quite a bit, but the preseason is not proving that. RG3 really seems to be targeting his WR more, and Fred Davis is getting a bit lost in the shuffle. Maybe this will turn around, but I would keep an eye on it. You could always package something together for someone looking for a RB and put Benson or Williams out there to see what upgrade in TE you might be able to make.

Good luck this season!


Help me out, and check out my draft results!

You're fine with Romo, who is a consistent, upper-tier option at QB. Your three starting RBs have a lot of upside, but strikes me as a tad risky. Murry is going into his sophomore effort, Martin is still unproven, and Johnson has yet to regain is former form, but if Murry plays like he did last year, Johnson stays in the NFL Great RB conversation, and Martin lives up to expectations, then you'll just be waiting for the playoffs to start.

Benson and Brown on the bench should pay dividends for you soon. I'd look to move one of them along with Harvin for a more consistent WR2 option.

Crazy, I was in a 12 man league drafting at spot #6 and my team looks a lot like yours.

I was also trying to draft matt ryan but didn't get him.

I have Johnson, Martin, Jones, Harvin, Davis, Bailey.

So going with my opinion, I think you did pretty good man.
