12 Team Auction League - How Did I Do?

Postby KeithJ » Thu Sep 06, 2012 12:38 pm

12 team auction league - standard scoring

Starters:
QB - Peyton Manning
RB - MJD
RB - SJax
WR - Brandon Marshall
WR - Greg Jennings
TE - Gonzo
FLEX - Trent Richardson
D/ST - Eagles
K - Robbie Gould

Bench
QB - Carson Palmer
WR - Randy Moss
RB - Bernard Scott
RB - Delone Carter
TE - Scott Chandler
D/ST - NYG

I'm actually very happy with my starters but my bench isn't very good. I have a bid in for Ogletree (dropping Carter) as I could really use another WR.

Thoughts?

Yeah mostly agree. Bench definitely needs an upgrade. Assuming you got MJD at a value. Like Marshall A LOT.

Here's mine

I would look for a QB upgrade and keep your eye open to upgrade WR's and RB's on your bench. Good on the starters with Marshall and Sjax.

I think your assessment about having good starters and weak depth is spot on. You can improve your depth on the waiver wire if you pay close attention early in the season.

Some specific thoughts:

-MJD is obviously a big risk, but I have to think he will work his way back eventually. He did lead the league in rushing last year. The holdout putting him behind is a worry though.
-I cannot believe you did not handcuff MJD with Jennings!
-Sjax will benefit from Jeff Fischer, who loves to run his primary ball carrier often (see Eddie George and Chris Johnson for example).
-I think Trent Richardson is a great pick, as he will get a lot of touches in Cleveland, as he is obviously their biggest (only) weapon on offense.
-Marshall and Jennings will be consistent producers at WR for you. Jennings is Mr. Consistency himself. Marshall is in a great spot with his buddy Cutler. Nice picks. You can confidently start both of them every weak.
-Gonzo is starting to slow down, but I cannot fault you too much for going with old reliable here. I might try to add a young backup with upside if I were you. Maybe the black unicorn (Martellus Bennett).
-Manning is a big risk. I would feel better about your QB if your backup was anybody but Carson Palmer, who I really think is finished.


Here is my team, if you wouldn't mind offering some feedback, I would appreciate it: viewtopic.php?t=518441
QB: R Griffin III, A Luck
RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green
WR: V Cruz, M Austin, P Garcon, S Moss, B Hartline
TE: J Witten
K: Matt Bryant
D: ATL.

Thanks for the replies. Here is what I got everyone with the % of my cash paid:

6 Brandon Marshall, Chi WR   13.85%
13 Maurice Jones-Drew, Jac RB   23.85%
18 Greg Jennings, GB WR   18.08%
25 Steven Jackson, StL RB   15.00%
26 Tony Gonzalez, Atl TE   2.69%
32 Peyton Manning, Den QB   9.62%
41 Trent Richardson, Cle RB   12.69%
50 John Kasay, FA K   0.38%
110 Eagles D/ST D/ST   1.15%
122 Robbie Gould, Chi K   0.38%
134 Carson Palmer, Oak QB   0.38%
155 Randy Moss, SF WR   0.38%
164 Bernard Scott*, Cin RB   0.38%
173 Scott Chandler, Buf TE   0.38%
181 Delone Carter, Ind RB   0.38%
186 Giants D/ST D/ST   0.38%

No comments about Kasay please, that was a misclick that I got stuck with. :(

I think Manning is going to be very solid in Denver so I'm not overly concerned with him. R Jennings ended up going out of my price range which is why I couldn't handcuff MJD.

If I can stay injury free and get Ogletree (hoping he's this year's Laurent Robinson), I think I'll be ok. I've gone through the WW and there is pretty much nobody available. Palmer was pretty much the best of the worst when I got him. :(
