Bad to have a WR/RB or QB/RB or QB/WR from same NFL team?

it's just that the top backs put up so much better numbers than the lower backs. Manning isn't going to blow away the rest of the QB's the way the elite RB's will.


I think the whole point was to say that the top RBs change year in year out. Noone knows really whos going to be at the top. With Peyton you are gauranteed. Thats all I was saying. And it actually makes sense.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Did I do OK?

I did a 12-team, big-money draft over the weekend (traditional scoring with 1 point per reception, start 1 QB, 2 RB, 1 flex, 3 WR, yada yada).

I picked Edgerrin James in the first round (No. 6 overall) and Peyton Manning in the second round (No. 19 overall). I followed them with T.Jones, Moulds and Chambers in rounds 3, 4 and 5.

I personally think the Colts will go crazy offensively this year and put up huge numbers. Assuming my thoughts are not too far off, did I make a smart decision or did I f--- up?

P.S. -- I also took the Ravens' D and Stover as my kicker, so my Week 6 is screwed.

I don't have a problem with it as such. The pay off could be huge or it could really come back to bite you, at some point. I'd much rather have, say, Manning/Harrison or Culpepper/Moss than Plummer/Lelie.

BTW, a couple seasons ago, my brother made his team better with a trade that got him half the Oakland Raiders roster (Gannon/Garner and Rice) and went on a 3 game tear, but saw his season end because the Raiders tanked at Miami. I don't think it is good to put too many eggs into one basket.

I agree with the Bagel.

Only a #1w/r #1 r/b seems to be a problem

Unless a team scores 40 pts more likely than not, EITHER the running game was on or the passing game was on.

Not too many 100+yd rushing games coupled with 100+ yd recv games

Props to Leber for the nice artwork!

I have always been a fan of the QB/TE combo. Especially since I rarely jump on the big time TE and instead focus on quality starters and depth at QB, RB, and WR. When your QB/TE combo hooks up for a TD you have a nice double score. If your QB has a bad game it normally won't kill you because TE are so hit and miss after the first 3 or 4 anyway.

This year I drafted Pennington after already having Santana Moss on my team. Pennington was by far the best option at that point so I went ahead and took him. I think this one may pay off for me. As I expect both to have big seasons. I will certainly suffer if they have a bad day. But I also have McCalister, Griffin, and R. Smith (and Bolden when he gets healty) to pick up the slack if they do.

Hello! Pennington? C-Mart? Moss? McCareins?

Very funny. They just call you "The Bagel" now. I love it.

CMart is nowhere near Faulk fantasy-wise, let alone top 5 back Alexander. Plus, Bruce and KRob are both better #2s than rather unproven McCareins IMO.

I grabbed Edge and Harrison in rds. 1 and 2 of one of my money leagues. I couldn't pass up the value of Harrison there. I'm really starting to think though that I should trade him in for couple of lower tiered guys however based on this thread, it's really got me thinking.
