QB and RB help

Postby average_joe » Tue Aug 28, 2012 6:54 am

So, I got called into work right before our draft started, so I had to let it auto draft. I need to make some adjustments. Here is what I am working with.
I have at QB: Newton, Locker
WW: Flacco, Sanchez, Dalton, Fitzpatrick, A. Smith

and at RB I have: Doug Martin, Donald Brown, and R. Bush
on WW: Mike Bush, Spiller, Jacobs, Tolbert, P. Thomas, and Tate

I am set at WR with J. Jones, C. Johnson, Harvin, Little, and Floyd

Its a non PPR head to head league. Passing is 1 pt/25 yds 5 pts/TD. Rush/Rec is 1 pt/10 yds 6pts/TD. So, the QB is not quite as important in this league. I do not plan on giving up on Newton, to me he has a lot of upside here, any mobile QB does. And I was impressed by what I saw in Locker so far, but do I need to pick up a more safe option like Flacco? I am much more concerned about my RB situation, and may have to make a trade to try and upgrade. The only positive thing I have going there is that this league starts 3 WR and only 2 RB with no flex spot. I have an extra K (Bironas, Kaeding) and an extra TE (F. Davis, Keller) that I can drop.

Thanks for your help! WHIR

I think you should stay put. You will find a good RB play each week with the three guys you have and having three solid WR is huge in this format.

As for your back up QB, with a relatively risky QB1 in Newton, you may want to go with somebody a little more stable like Flacco.

Help with mine?
