Ultimate Fantasy Football Strategy

Postby PoonGod0 » Mon Aug 23, 2004 12:34 am

SportingNews.com has a basic Salary Cap Ultimate Fantasy Football League, and I was wondering if anyone knew some sleepers that you think would have there stock rise the most this season, just a couple RB's, WR's, and QB's.

So far, I think these players stock will rise the most:

QB: D. Carr, B. Leftwich

WR: Javon Walker, Brandon Lloyd

RB: C. Brown, L. Suggs

sleepers

Postby mrtexansfan » Mon Aug 23, 2004 3:19 am

i agree with the above players and have a few of my own. in a salary cap league if you are looking for a player or 2 on the cheap that will still put up some numbers there are several. 1 that wasnt mentioned is Brunell. i feel he willhave a decent season in Washington and remain as the starter for the Skins. in several of the salary cap leagues that i have seen he is priced on the cheap side and the money you save with him you can upgrade another position. I used this strategy in one salary cap league im in and was able to get the top 4 rb's and 3 of the top 6 wrs. we will se if this works out. in my league i got him for less then 70 grand as a second qb. not sure if it will work out but im thinking it will.

I also have another question:

1) How many weeks should you wait to gain some money to upgrade RB's and WR's, but still b able to earn money on other sleepers?

Here is my roster there. It is a good mix of solid players and Risk/Reward guys. I left 1.7 mil on the table as after a week or 2, you will want to swap out a position and you won't want to waste a move to get rid of someone else to get more cap space.

My rules for TSN.

Don't get too many sleepers, with a roster this small, if someone does not play, it hurts bad.

Keep some $ on the table in case you need to upgrade a position.

Plan ahead for $ gains. Don't waist the whole season chasing players that will increase your cap, I've won my league before and my team had lost value over the season.

If there is any question if a guy is playing, cut him.

Remember to watch out for bye weeks, save your trades for them.

QB Favre, B. 0 0
QB Pennington, C. 0 0
RB Jones, T. 0 0
RB Alexander, S. 0 0
WR Price, P. 0 0
WR Lloyd, B. 0 0
D Washington
Roster: 12 Team League
QB: Palmer, Plummer
RB: S. Alexander, J. Lewis, J Jones, S Jackson, Gado
WR: Mason, R Williams, Engram, Chatman, Ferguson
TE: Witten
DEF: Jax
K: Stover

I loaded my teams with studs or as much as I could and filled in the rest with sleepers.

Team 1:
QB: Josh McCown, Joey Harrington
RB: Shaun Alexander, Edgerrin James
WR: Jevon Walker, Brandon Lloyd
D: Minnesota

Team 2:
QB: Chad Pennington, Byron Leftwich
RB: Corey Dillon, Willis McGahee
WR: Peerless Price, Chris Chambers
D: Detroit

I'm considering moving McCown off my first team; I drafted him thinking Boldin+Fitzgerald+Dennis Green=lots of shoot-outs, but with Boldin going down I'm not sure McCown is as valuable a pick. On my second team, I'm pretty set on my lineup except for McGahee. We'll see how things turn out with the Buffalo running back situation in the coming weeks.
