What is a better starting lineup

Postby illad3lph » Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:00 am

This is a 12 team Dynasty PPR so keep that in mind as well. I am also adding my top bench guys as I will sub them in at some point too


Option A
QB- Eli
RB- Lesean McCoy
RB- Chris Johnson
WR- Calvin Johnson
WR- Dez Bryant
TE- Rob Gronkowski
Flex- Jamaal Charles
Flex- Matt Forte

BN - Percy Harvin, Jared Cook, Dustin Keller, Roy Helu

Option B
QB- Eli
RB- Lesean McCoy
RB- Chris Johnson
WR- Calvin Johnson
WR- Andre Johnson
TE- Rob Gronkowski
Flex- Jamaal Charles
Flex- Matt Forte

BN - Dez Bryant, Dustin Keller, Jacob Tamme, Evan Royster

This doesn't make much sense. You have Chris Johnson listed as a RB and a flex. Both lineups are ridiculous in a 12 team format with or without dynasty. You have C2k, McCoy, Mega, Gronk, Charles, Eli, Harvin... and your question basically is whether you start Andre Johnson or Dez Bryant. You can't be serious.

I fixedd it. My question is whether or not it is worth it to give up Roy helu, Percy and Jared cook to get Andre

lol ok, and you have Forte. I would not trade anything with anyone. Just leave your lineup exactly like it is because I can seriously not imagine another team having anything close to that in a 12 team format.

I don't really understand how you could possibly ever lose a h2h matchup in a 12 team ppr with Chris Johnson, Jamaal Charles, Matt Forte, LeSean McCoy, Calvin Johnson, Rob Gronkowski all in your starting lineup. Why anyone in your league would trade you a healthy Andre Johnson for pretty much 3 guys off your bench is beyond me.

So, yeah make that trade. I hope you are having regular poker games with these guys too.

So just playing devil's advocate. His health does not scare you and the fact he is 31?

Also, I feel like even though it may make me better, it will make this guy's team even better.

This should probably be more of a trade question than a roster rating but just out of curiosity what is his team makeup exactly?

I don't do the trade for 1 reason. I don't think AJ puts up the same numbers as Percy. Other than that, I don't think it matters because that roster is stupid good. Not his, yours.
