Who to Start week #1? WHIR

Postby johnny p » Mon Aug 26, 2013 10:17 am

So, 7 years deep in my dynasty league, and I got sucked into working on the day of the draft, and my team was auto-drafted....

12 person league, standard scoring. My keepers going into the draft (costing me no draft picks, all were last-round picks since I've had them more than one season)

LeSean McCoy, Jimmy Graham, Calvin Johnson.

Here is what my auto-draft got me: (glad I was at least able to secure a QB!)



RB: (probably one too many at least)

Lamar Miller
LeSean McCoy
Bryce Brown
Rashard Mendenhall
Daniel Thomas


Calvin Johnson
Josh Gordon (2 week suspension, need help with replacement week 1/2)
Emanuel Sanders
Denarius Moore


Jimmy Graham
Jason Witten (I'm sure it reached early for a TE that I didn't need......)



Questions would be: What WR's to start? And at flex position, should I throw Witten in there, or is one of my back-up running backs a better option?

Moore or Sanders at WR is a wash, I would go by who their opponent is for the week.

tough call on Flex. Mendenhall? I'm not sure how is doing this preseason. Whitten is more a sure thing for a decent effort.
10 team 4 keeper PPR league: (Starters in bold)
RB: A.Peterson. Sproles, Murray (flex), DeAngelo Williams
WR: Julio Jones, Cruz,Garcon, Jeffrey, Douglas, ROyal
TE: Witten
K: Tucker

How many WRs do you have to play? If it's choosing between Moore and Sanders I would rather play Sanders. I would also flex Witten over Mendenhall but it's close. Mendenhall has actually looked decent in pre-season.
