Amazing 12 team roster you're dying to help with (...WHIR)

Postby fdeb35 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 4:05 pm

... Apologies for the title, but you're here, yeah?

Anyways: I picked from the four spot in a standard, non-ppr 12 team league

QB: Rivers (Round 6 -- 69)
RB1: R. Rice (round 1 -- 4)
RB2: J. Charles (round 2 -- 21)
WR1: AJ Green (round 3 -- 28)
WR2: Percy Harvin (round 4 -- 45)
Flex: Jeremy Maclin (round 5 -- 52)
TE: F. Davis (Round 7 -- 76)
K: Steven Hauschka (he went to my college... whatever.)
DEF: Seattle (round 13 -- pick 148)
RES: J. Stewart (Round 10 -- 117)
RES: K. Britt (Round 8 -- 93)
RES: D. Moore (Round 9 -- 100)
RES: E. Royster (Round 11 -- 124)
RES: A. Luck (Round 12 -- 141)

----------

I was happy to get Rice at 4, and in general, am happy with my starting unit. I was hoping Ryan would be around in the 5th, but with him off the board, I pulled the trigger on Maclin and maybe stretched a bit to get Rivers next. The big problem I'm seeing is depth, but I also feel like I got good value with a few risky players... all things considered, I wouldn't change anything -- I just wish I got a few more breaks here and there with players falling. I'd say somewhere around a B+ .

Thoughts, opinions, criticisms? Any obvious move I should make?

Leave a link and I will help ya 100%.

Nice draft imo. I am a bit down on Charles (split time?) and Rivers (lost Jackson) this year (same reasons as others of course) but given the overall strength and balance of the rest of your team you should be fine. Plus Luck could actually surprise as a rookie and be a great backup!

Thanks for the help. I was actually pretty disappointed to have to go with Luck -- I woulda preferred either a Big Ben type or maybe getting lucky and having RGIII fall to me in a reasoable spot, but it didn't work out. And I was targeting Hillis as the safety blanket, but he went in the fifth and I'm not willing to pull the trigger there.

I like mostly what you did here, except I'm not terribly high on Rivers (like you said, you wanted Ryan but he's been skyrocketing in most drafts) but I think you'll be happy with the Luck pick - IMO you will should definitely play the matchups week-to-week and by the end of the season will probably be starting Luck full time

You're got a lot of guys who are great PPR plays (Rice, Harvin, Maclin) but aren't necessarily going to win you any weeks single-handily, they will all contribute their parts though

IMO your season relies on Charles getting more than a 50-50 split (aka more TDs and goal line carries than the intended recipient, Hillis) of and AJ Green bettering his numbers from last year..while I think both are possible, they might be long shots..with that being said if Kenny Britt can come back and produce, you may have yourself a winner (have him in a couple of my leagues too)

I give it a B-, borderline B

wanna help me out?

Love your roster, other than Rivers. I have him below Ryan/Eli/Romo, on par with Schaub/Big Ben/Flacco. Just not a fan at all. I think Luck will end up being your starting QB most weeks.
