5th pick 8-man PPR

Postby rasmusDoh » Tue Aug 28, 2012 5:01 pm

Just finished my first draft (5th pick in 8-man PPR league).
Did as suggested some places and didn't draft a defense or kicker.
I figure that the strategy mostly applies to early drafts, but there's still 8 days left so thought i'd go with it.

My team ended up being:

QB: Ryan
RB1: McCoy
RB2: Murray
WR1: Welker
WR2: Nelson
TE: Graham
Flex: S. Jackson

BN: Eli Manning
BN: Dez Bryant
BN: Dwayne Bowe
BN: Steve Johnson
BN: Kenny Britt
BN: Peyton Hillis
BN: C.J. Spiller
BN: Donald Brown

Was a little pissed at myself when i took Graham over McFadden, but Murray fell to me in 4th round (lol), so still ended up with a high risk high reward RB - and a consistent stud TE. And SJAX felt to 5th round, so got him if Murray gets injured.

The league rules are 6 pts for QB tds and there's a lot of yard bonus points, but for both passing, rushing and receiving.
Guess this caused Rodgers to go second and Brees third. Rice went fourth and then i had to choose between Brady and McCoy.
Took McCoy as my top 3 has always been the three stud RBs, but that left me a little off at QB, which is my main weekness.

What do you think? Is the rest of the team good enough to compensate for Ryan? Think he'll have a good year, but still.

Never really seen an 8 team draft, but that team looks damn strong to me. You should have a lot of points coming to you with your QB's in a 6 point TD system. Love the RB's, though I'm not crazy about S-Jax (he has to wear down at some point). Solid WR's, and I love Britt on the backend, for when he comes back healthy.. Maybe could be used as a trade chip. Graham is great too, overall good job, though you should be stacked with talent in an 8 team.

Thx!

Yeah im not SJAX's biggest fan either, but felt like he was still too good to pass on in 5th round.

Currently trying to trade Britt+Hillis for Maclin to J.Charles owner and Britt+Spiller for McGahee to F.Jackson owner.

Gotta get rid of two of my guys to pick up a DEF and a kicker, but would hate to just drop them.
