Post Draft tweaks

Postby organist » Sun Sep 02, 2012 8:45 am

Hello All.

This could possibly reside in the roster rankings forum, but as I am specifically asking for advice on FA pick-ups, I put it here...

I just had my auction draft yesterday, and I got caught out trying to bid up Tony Romo and got stuck in dollar land early.
As such I ended up with Romo and Newton at QB, which is not terrible.
But on the flip-side, it meant that I was unable to to target my hidden jewels the way I wanted, and got stuck with basically whatever was left.

As a result, I had to settle for a lot of players that I must confess to having done little to no research on.

I have my roster and some notable FAs listed... who would you drop from this roster, and for whom?
I would particularly interested in any WR options that folks might have.

0.5 PPR
Passing: 20yds/pt
Rushing/Receiving: 10yds/pt
TDs = 6pts
Fumble/interception = -2pts
RETURN YARDS = 20yds/pt

Q... Cam Newton (QB, CAR)
R... Ray Rice (RB, BAL)
R... Adrian Peterson (RB, MIN)
W... Brandan Marshall (WR, CHI)
W... Hakeem Nicks (WR, NYG)
T... Jermaine Gresham (TE, CIN)
K... Dan Bailey (PK, DAL)
D... Baltimore Ravens

B... Tony Romo (QB, DAL)
B... Robert Meachem (WR, WD)
B... Beanie Wells (RB, ARZ)
B... Isaac Redman (RB, PIT)
B... James Starks (RB, GB)
B... Jacob Tamme (TE, DEN)

Notable FAs
Ben Tate (RB, HOU)
Greg Little (WR, CLE)
Mark Ingram (RB, NO)
Mike Williams (WR, TB)
Rashard Mendenhall (RB, PIT)
Malcolm Floyd (WR, SD)
Santonio Holmes,(WR, NYJ)
Sidney RIce (WR, SEA)
Lance Moore (WR, NO)

I would rather have Ben Tate then Starks. Starks will not see many touches behind Benson. I do not see another clear add/drop other then that though. I could see dropping Tamme for Floyd so that you are almost guaranteed to get the Chargers WR1.
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!
