Thanks for the warm welcoming. I went back and checked we are not that far off the board. Last year we were so far off the norm that when J. Lewis broke the record for yards in a game that some wr who had like 8 catches for 95 yards and a td scored more points than him. Sorry this so long
Any insight someone is willing to give would be more than appreciated. If you have a question that you would like another response to I will be more than happy to give you my 2 cents.
This year we have: 1 QB 2 RB 3 WR 1 TE 1 Flex 2 DL 2 DB 2 D 6 Bench
My question is how soon should I draft D players with their point totals being so high. Is Ray Lewis worthy of a top 25 pick and if so where at. What stage would you take a QB?
Anything else you can think of?
1. RBs are the most valuable in this system - especially feature backs who catch the ball out of the backfield - LT2, Holmes, Green types. Because of your flex posistion, I would target getting a 3rd RB pretty early - if you can fill it with a feature back while the others have a WR in it you will have the advantage.
2. IDP leagues are normally ripe for you to take advantage of if you have a solid IDP ranking cheat sheet. Honestly - most people simply dont understand how to draft IDPs. Dont worry about jumping for Ray Lewis early - there is better value to be had later. The key here - because of your scoring system is to target the tacklers - not the sack specialists. Feel free to fill your main offensive positions first and then go after IDPs. There is much more value in this type of strategy.
3. Wait on QBs. There will be a top 10 QB waiting for you in the 6th rd or later. Even though completions =.5 it doesnt matter as much and certainly shouldnt change your strategy all that much. The top QBs will have a minimal scoring advantage over the other top 10 - at most a 3-5 point per game advantage - something that can easily be made up with feature RBs.
Welcome to the cafe. I got a question in general. I know many people use the yahoo scoring but on the fftoolbox jank, the kicking is hard. can anyone help me out with that?
