Need help with my team...

Postby jeff.miller21 » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:48 pm

Hey everyone, I recently drafted a fantasy team in a 10 man standard league. I had the second pick in the draft. My roster is as follows.

QB-Tony Romo
RB-Arian Foster
RB-Chris Johnson
WR-Demaryius Thomas
WR-Reggie Wayne
TE-Antonio Gates
K-Dan Bailey
DEF-Arizona
B-Steve Smith
B-Ryan Mathews
B-Shane Vereen
B-Stevie Johnson
B-Kenny Britt
B-Andy Dalton

I usually like my team after a draft but for some reason this year I am hating my team. What recommendations would you guys make in order to make my team better? I have a lot of depth at WR and RB on my bench. What positions should I upgrade? Really need your guys help with this team. Means a lot. Thank You!

Not sure how I feel about Wayne as WR2, but you're right that you have depth to handle it if he regresses. Romo is pretty borderline as a starter in a 10 team league as well. And not sure what you're seeing in AZ's defense.

That's all I can really nitpick though. The rest looks solid.

If you're really not liking this team, my suggestion would be to flip either Foster, Johnson or Thomas with Romo for a better QB plus a slightly weaker RB/WR.

D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).

V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

I have said this to someone else.. I like your team, but its just not scary.. Your the guy I want to play week 2 in playoffs, because no one on your team is a sure fire player.. I think you need to sell Foster hard!!!! I hate him this year, and think Ben Tate will Emerge as a top 15 back.. I think you need to cut your losses with him, see if you can get a calvin Johnson and a Handcuffed running back..

can you see mine?? viewtopic.php?t=535886

Yea for a 10 mean league I would expect a bit better of a team, no offense.

I like you RB 1 & 2 and WR 1, but not sure of Wayne at 2. I am guessing you reached for V. Davis. Mathews could be good value.

Good luck.

For me the RB's are too risky. I think you will be fine at WR, I like Britt this year.

As for Romo being a borderline starter - I really don't understand all of the hate for Romo this year, he will put up his normal numbers close to 5,000 yards and 30 TDS.

Traded Arian Foster, Reggie Wayne, and Shane Vereen for Ray Rice and Dez Bryant

Now lineup is

QB-Tony Romo
RB-Ray Rice
RB-Chris Johnson
WR-Dez Bryant
WR-Demaryius Thomas
TE-Antonio Gates
FLEX-Reggie Bush

Slowly but surely I'll try and improve my team!

While it hurts your depth to have to give up 2 RBs to get 1, I do like the impact of that trade on your starting lineup. Your biggest starting lineup weakness is now Romo, and that's a good problem to have, because while no one's going to confuse Romo for a Top 5 QB, he's also not going to finish in the bottom half of NFL starting QBs most likely.

I'd be careful not to give up any more RB depth now that you've moved Vereen, but I like your chances going forward...
