Interesting draft stategy

Postby ff_dude » Wed Jul 07, 2004 5:33 pm

NOTE:This isn't asking for help

I have the 9th of 12th pick in one of my redraft leagues. I am going to use the Randy Moss draft stategy.

My thinking on this is that Randy Moss is 2xs better than the next best reciever. Having Moss is kinda like having 2 top WRs in one person. After if I can around taking 2 or 3 RBs than one more WR I should have a good team

Possible team:
Randy Moss
Corey Dillion
Duce Staley
Julius Jones
Jimmy Smith
Kellen Winslow
Tom Brady
Justin McCariens

By Position
QB:Tom Brady
RB:Dillion, Staley, Jones
WR:Moss, Jimmy Smith McCariens
TE:Kellen Winslow

IMO that is a good, well balanced team with lots of depth at WR and RB and a top TE and a pretty good QB.

I just wanted to show you a interesting stategy if you pick toward the end.

I would rather take Edge at #9 rather than Moss for fear of having Duce Staley as my #2 and JJ as my starting flex guy. Ouch.

Having Moss is like having two 800 yard 8.5 TD WRs, not that good.

Assuming that Moss is going to put up numbers like last year is a HUGE mistake.

Last year I took a WR in the second round for the first time in a while because I assumed that Marvin Harrison would put up numbers as good as any of the RB's I was thinking about taking at that spot. It didn't work out that way, and Harrison was a more consistent producer in years past than Moss.

The problem with what you just wrote isn't really the Moss pick. He's a fine pick at #9. The problem is that you're reaching for Dillon, Staley, and Jones too early. Dillon should go in the late-2nd, not early-2nd and Staley/Jones should go in the mid-5th, not the late-3rd/early-4th.

Nice observation. But I agree with Free Bagel's statement that it seems like everyone is assuming Moss is going to score 5 or 6 more TD's and have 300-400 yards more than everyone else. It's a good bet he'll be the best in the league again this year and he's not a bad pick at 9. I'm not arguing with that. Penciling in stats and drafting based solely on the prior year's performance is the key ingredient to failure. You can't argue with taking Moss at 9 though. And it's not the strategy that's in question. It's the assumed picks in the 2nd-4th round that was the problem.

Obviously Moss is amazing, but the guy said having Moss is like having 2 top WRs when it obviously isnt.
