WINNERS, For those who won their fantasy football leagues

I'm just curious about what players you guys had. Do RB's really determine if you'll win or not?

99% of the time they do...

I came in second in my money league (barely), and the guy that had Randy Moss didn't even make the playoffs... The guy that won did so because we started 3 RB's and he started Alexander, Lewis, and S. Davis...

My team:

QB: Penny, Brooks
RB: Ricky Williams, Travis Henry, Marshall Faulk, Dom Davis, Rudi Johnson, Moe Williams, Marcel Shipp
WR/TE: Owens, S. Smith, J. Smith, Toomer
K: Wilkins
DEF: different every week

Last year was my first year. I think I got lucky (that might be the most important thing...)

QB - Manning, Hasselbeck
WR - Moss, Horn, C.Johnson
RB - Tomlinson, S.Davis
TE - several crappy ones
K - Gramatica (mistake)
D - constantly changing

I was able to trade Driver for S.Davis (the guy already had Holmes & Henry).


RB's are important, but the key is value drafting.

I had Henry and Dillon which was nothing special... but the trio of Harrison/Holt/Coles to go along with Hass and Sharpe is what won it for me. Too bad I won't be snagging Holt in the 4th this year...

A lot of it depends on RB's. I won my league and both my rbs were solid all year, but then again, my team overall was pretty solid.

QB- J. Garcia
RB- C. Portis
RB- S. Davis
WR- R. Moss
WR- I. Bruce
DL- M. Strahan
DB- R. Harrison

Last year, I came short of the playoffs because of my 2 injured backs Edge and Faulk dropped me to one of the worst teams in the league. When they came back I became the top scoring team in the league and missed the playoffs by 1 team. I also watched the playoffs in my league and saw that I would have outscored every single team in the playoffs except maybe one game. I was angry but that goes to show you how much backs are important. My WR's were Koren Robinson, Andre Johnson, and Santana Moss. Even though Moss was scoring me points, the other 2 would be on and off and could not rely on them for consistant scoring.

Last year:

1st place: QB: Brooks RB: Ricky, Jam WR: Holt, Coles
2nd place: QB: Garcia RB: Shaun, Travis WR: Horn, Bostoids, KRob (cycled them).

I was 2nd place team. Those two teams had the best RB-RB combos in the league. Next best was Deuce and Stephen Davis (but Davis got injured) and that owner got really unlucky (he had McNair, Deuce, Stephen, but had career weeks put on him every time...he had Chambers as WR and Benched him on tHanksgiving game (the one where he had 3TDs)).

Last year was my first year as well. I had LT but other than that I was a bit weak in RB (until Barlow started doing better) but in our league Manning and Moss were both in the top ten scorers...
The team I beat for the championship had Priest and Ahman....


QB: Manning, Plummer
RB: LT2, Barlow, Dillon, Hearst
WR: R. Moss, D. Jackson, R. Wayne, D. Driver
TE: McMichael
K: Kasay, Vinatieri
DEF: Miami

One of the trends in the winners last year (including my team) that I've noticed is many waited on a QB and got Hasselbeck. My RBs certainly helped (LT2, Dom. Davis, then Rudi) but I'd say taking Hass late and backing up Holt (3rd round) with Chad Johnson (5th round) put me over the top. Getting a lil lucky with your mid-round picks makes a big difference.
QB: Warner, Brees
RB: SJax, Dunn, Gore, Barlow, Maroney
WR: Steve Smith, Driver, Walker, Reg. Brown, Williamson, Wilford
TE: Winslow
K: Wilkins
D: Cincy
D: Matchups
