I like your team to win. In a 4pt PA TD league, Cam has a big advantage over other QBs, because of his rushing.

Help me if you get a chance? viewtopic.php?t=516931

Not an overwhelming grouping at either RB or WR -- Dez is a gamble that you will need to pay off (as is Richardson, if for entirely different reasons). I'm not big on the basic strategy employed of buying high on QB and TE, though I do agree that Cam gains value in this rule structure. As you saw on my team, we agree on a few target players -- Maclin, CJ, Nate Washington, Jeremy Maclin and Torrey Smith are all appealing. But essentially, I'm not a fan of the basic methodology used in constructing this roster. This is a personal taste sorta-thing, and it's objectively an above average squad (if one lacking in consistency at the RB and WR).

I'd personally rather have his team, but it's too close to make a definite judgement one way or the other. He's got a deep receiving group and consistent RB play, even if S-Jax and Michael Turner are as boring an RB tandem as possible.

think your team has the edge. I like your RB tandem better and WR trio better. It will be close but you have the edge.
