My miraculously 3-2 team. Should I be confident?

Postby vincentp83 » Wed Oct 10, 2012 3:21 pm

So I'm in an 8-team league (.5 PPR, 6pt passing TD, otherwise standard Yahoo). I feel like my team is really solid. I look at them and go "Ya... that's the stuff". I want to believe I'll make the playoffs. Then I look at all of these other teams and they're just as good if not better.

I started off with a terrible draft. Fred Jackson was injured and so far has been a bust. I took Cam fairly early and look what happened with him. Luckily I grabbed RGIII in like round 15, but failed to start him until week 3 over Cam. Lost my first two games. I've had injury problems, unlucky starts, inconsistency, all of the standard FF issues. I've been molesting the waiver wire and FA like they're my life's blood. I think I'm finally in a decent spot, but for some reason I still worry that my team just isn't stacking up.

I'm 3-2 right now (somehow), but the reason I'm worried is this; I have the second lowest points for in the entire league, and the lowest points against. Basically I've just gotten lucky with horrible opponent matchups in my three wins. Each time I won a game, I would have lost to at least 5 of the other teams had my schedule been different that week.

So here's what I'm working with. I'm really just looking for someone to tell me I've got a chance. I don't have any Fosters or Rices, but I need to compete with the teams that do.

QB - Cam Newton
RB - Alfred Morris (my savior)
RB - Frank Gore
RB - Rashard Mendenhall (glad I grabbed him early during injury)
RB - Fred Jackson (can I call him a waste of space yet?)
WR - Calvin Johnson
WR - Brandon Marshall
WR - Brandon Lloyd (my biggest weekly mistake, benched indefinitely)
WR - Brian Hartline (replaced the injured Amendola for depth)
WR - Denarius Moore
WR - James Jones
TE - Tony Gonzalez (probably the main reason I have 3 wins)
TE - Heath Miller
K - Greg Zuerlein
DEF - Arizona (I'm playing defense by waiver wire so this has been changing)

Your starting group is solid, but it does look like you are thin on depth. If you can stick with the starting group, you should have a nice season.
