Do I need to retool? Previous Champion now 1-3 *WHIR*

Postby LombardiParty » Tue Oct 02, 2012 4:10 pm

My team is in my signature. I am dropping Holmes for Mendenhall. What do I need to do to turn this season around? I really thought having the preseason #1's in three different position and the #2 in another would be good...

Trade Leshoure or Fred Jackson along with Jordy for an upgrade at WR.

Mines the QB one on 1st page.

You'll be fine, try and get Julio Jones on a buy low and you'll cruise into the playoffs.

Thanks for the help everybody.

In response to bmoors comment, I didn't draft a majority of my current team. For my third year playing FF, I am experiencing my first year in a trade-happy league. I have been biding my time and slowly trading up. Sure, maybe some of the guys I am playing with were dumb to trade stud RBs for solid ones plus whatever, but that's their problem. Combined, I have probably had the top 2 RBs and all the RBs ranging from 12 to 25 at one time or another. You could understand my chagrin when I do all this to be close to dead last in my league.

I think A. Brown should be in your starting lineup and not Austin.

Seriously is this a post asking for advice or to brag? Like the guy said above if people are that trade happy and love their 2 for 1s then trade FJax and Austin for someone like a Julio or AJ Green if you can make that work. You dont need to make a move because your starting lineup is ridiculous but your bench is too deep as well so might as well keep making moves.

If you actually have that team then the people in your league dont know much about fantasy, you can probably add Calvin and AJ to your lineup and just have the top 1/2 combo at every position.

I don't give a warm bucket of spit if my team looks good on paper if that doesn't translate into winning. I am 1-3 after last season when I went undefeated; that doesn't seem like it warrants bragging. Help me win, not make me have all the preseason, doesn't mean anything, rank-leaders.

QB-Aaron Rodgers (12)
RB-Foster(1)/Rice (2)
WR-Austin(13)/Jordy Nelson (30)
TE-Graham (2)
FLEX-Morris (9)
K-Zuerlein

Above in () are the position rank so far for each of your players. Rodgers is the 12th ranked but thats also because he played 3 of the top 5 defenses already this week, we saw what he can do when he played a weaker D last week. He will be a top 2-3QB when all is said and done. You also have Ben who is averaging 25PPG which would make him 4th if he didnt have his bye week.

You have 3 top 10 RBs including the 2 best through 4 weeks, and the 2nd best TE who is only 3 points out of first. Your only position you are "lacking" is WR but since that is such a variable position i wouldnt put too much stock into that. Miles is getting you 12-15 a week and Jordy's had one bad game or he would be in the top 15 as well.

Seriously, have you looked at the production of your guys or analyzed it at all or are you just looking at your record??
