Who did you vastly overrate on your team?

Postby Papa Deuce » Thu Nov 22, 2012 9:29 am

I had 2....

Peyton Hillis.... By now I would have guessed 65ish fantasy points... yes, he has been injured, but in our scoring system he has a total of 8 points. I cut him a long time ago, and picked up Ronnie Hillman, who I am actually starting this week over Darren Sproles.

The other one might not have been me overrating him, but me buying into the hype too much.... and even at that, the guy has been good, but nit as good as the hype, IMO.... Julio Jones. If he could actually score at home more, he might be a top 8 WR in my league. As it is, I think he is 18th in WR scoring, just above Michael Crabtree.... Julio would have been a 2nd rounder, but I kept him.... Crabtree was taken around round 15.

Lesean McCoy and Matthew Stafford. I kept Stafford from last year, and way overpaid for McCoy based on his production (I'm in an auction league).

This here. I overrated a lot of receivers this year. Jennings, Steve Smith, Stevie Johnson to name a few. I expected a lot more from a lot of guys. Such is the nature of fantasy football I suppose.

Before my draft I was actually deciding whether to keep Lloyd or Jones....... I kept Jones.

On draft day i was really happy with Larry Fitzgerald and Jeremy Maclin as my starting WR and Kenny Britt on the bench. And to think I could have taken any WR not named Calvin Johnson when I selected Fitz...oops!

where to begin. Maclin, Lloyd, MJD. Pretty much my whole team was injury risks who all bit me. Cripes, the only guy I had who wasn't an injury risk was Gronkowski. Next year I may only take players who haven't missed any time due to injury. I may not be able to field a team :-b
Also had team with grossy overrated Sproles, Rivers, Jordy, and Steve Johnson. Sigh.Not quite wating til next year with that team. Any day now.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

2 guys that I'm really glad I traded...

Ryan Mathews (straight up for Marques Colston)

Julio Jones (part of a package for Marshawn Lynch)

A guy that I'm stuck with...

Darren McFadden

and Eli Manning - he's cost me at least 3 wins where I stubbornly start him over Carson Palmer week in week out...
