Right to be concerned, but White will still do well. He's not likely to repeat last year's dominant numbers but he'll still be top 10. I agree that it looks like ATL is force feeding Julio to ramp him up into the regular season.

But that seems like a long time to neglect runningback...
Scoring + Lineup make all the difference in answering this. With 10 teams - regardless of format & scoring, tbh - I'd stay away from QB in rounds 1-3.

Yes. Blount is a much better RB2 or flex than you have now and one of those WRs will ride pine even after you move Wayne. Maclin/Manningham will be solid.

Push for a little more, though. There's a good chance the owner of Blount thinks he's stealing Wayne.

I've got the #1 pick in a league (.5 PPR, 6 pts for passing TD's) tonight, and an offer on the table - #1, #25, and #49 for #3, #22, and #46. I wanted to move up in the second to secure a QB hopefully with the higher points for passing TD's, and moving up in the 4th is nice as well. Plus I get to hold onto #24 and #48 and pick ahead of the guy instead of behind him which I like.

Essentially I'm figuring that at #3 I get a shot at Foster, Rice, or Peterson (should be Foster or Rice), and I get to move up later in the draft. Thoughts on the deal?

I'd take it. The value at the top of the draft this year is as evenly spread as I've seen it since I started playing, and that was 10 years ago. It's pretty wide open for the top spot, with CJ2K's contract issues there isn't really a clear cut #1 guy. I like Rice or Peterson much more at 3 then I do Foster or Charles at #1. Hell, the value may be in 3 anyways, moving up in the other rounds is just a perk.

Honestly, I think I'd stand pat and take Foster. You'll probably be forced to choose between ADP and Charles and I just don't love Peterson as much in even half point ppr.

Ok, I'll skip the ADP question. How the **** did you also get AJ / DMC / Nicks? That's basically two 1st round picks and 2 second round picks, even in ten team leagues. Highway ******' robbery. Lots of upside in your bench, too.

Thoughts on a potential trade, please.
It involves a DST. Say what??!!

I botched my first ever auction draft yesterday and have 5 WRs with a week 7 bye. Oops.

So I immediately send out trade messages and have been offered a few trades and have put out feelers on a few as well. Not a ton of good action but I have one offer that I'm thinking I will take.

The offer:
I give:
Jeremy Maclin & AJ Green (both week 7 byes)

I get:
Brandon Lloyd & Steeler DST


This league scores pretty high marks for DST and I managed to get the guy who made an offer to upgrade it to the Steelers DST. Pitt D scored 321 points in this league last year, which made them the 3rd highest scorer in the entire league - behind only Foster & Roddy.

My roster would still include a ton of WRs and it's a PPR league.
Welker / DJax / Collie / Moore / Braylon would still be on my roster along with Lloyd. I currently have no DST at all on my team. So I'd be getting a relatively fair replacement for Maclin (I'm warming up to Lloyd, he's laying out for balls even in preseason!) and I give up an uproven rookie WR for the leagues best D. Starting 2RB, 3WR, 1W/R/T & I have SJax / Greene / Wells / Woodhead / Fred Jackson.

Not liking it for 10 teams, tbh. Like me, you'll need Greene to really put up RB1 numbers this year or he'll be an achilles heel for your team in PPR. I think it has too much invested in the QB spot, with likely 2 picks on QBs in the first ten rounds, right? The result is a very questionable flex every week - hoping for a breakout from Ingram or the Bills to produce like they did last year . . . gulp!


It's a good squad, but not great in 10 teams.

In a ten team league without taking two QBs through 10 rounds (as I am assuming) I think the flex position should be a more reliable, established commodity.

Stevie should be that in PPR, but I'm not sold on your Bills repeating last year's studliness on offense. Stevie gets doubled now and Fitz has never shown us he can be the man.

I'm just not sold on him or Ingram. They could very well be in the group of guys I am low on that blow up. FWIW - I had Stevie on my sleepers list last year and stayed away. Foolishly.

What's a redraft? I'm having trouble googling because I don't really know what to search for to find rankings for the first year of a dynasty.

I find it better to do my own rankings to begin with than print something else out and make 100 changes.

The only reason why I picked up two top 10 QBs is because they started to go HEAVY off the board after I picked Peyton. I got PM in the 6th round and I'm not too comfortable with him to start the year, so I chose Ryan. The only reason why I chose Peyton was because it was such a good value on my part.

Yeah, I need to improve RBs, but I feel like I have enough depth at QB and potentially WR to make a trade if Greene busts again like last year.

Peterson and Greene should be more than enough production at the RB for you, even in a PPR league. There are few RBs who'll make more points than Peterson, PPR or not. Greene, eh, not the best but you could definitely do worse. Ingram could be a nice surprise though.

Jennings, Nicks, and Johnson are the others you should use, IMO. Be a bit wary of Jennings though, I read somewhere that last year when Finley was active, Jennings did little to nothing when it came to catches and yards.

First 5 games last year: 14 catches, 183 yards, 3 TDs.

Graham is a favorite of mine, and Chicago and Gould are solid.

I got Andre in the second, Nicks in the third, and DMC in the 4th. My friends are ********.

Like the QBs, Orton is nothing spectacular without McDaniels, IMO, but he's solid in a pinch. Ryan could be poised for a breakout year, good to have him.

Not too crazy about your RBs. Peterson is a stud, but MoJo is coming off an injury and I don't know why I don't feel good about him this year. Daniel Thomas can't beat out Reggie Bush for a starting gig, and Gerhart does little to nothing. I'm guessing you got him as insurance in case Adrian went down?

I like the rest of your team though. Good group of receivers, as I said above I love Graham and Pettigrew is good too, and Gostkowski and Baltimore are consistently top performers.

I wasn't crazy about MoJo either, until he was still there at 20. I almost had to pick him in order for the team picking behind me to have Vick, MJD, and Fitz. I never had him before so it should be fun. Daniel Thomas and Gerhart were late picks. Gerhart was the handcuff, and Thomas was a shot in the dark. Starks probably won't last very long when a decent WR emerges on the wire. There's always DeAngelo Williams, who I hope someone takes for a WR early on.

Maclin fell quite a bit and everyone was scared off by Marshall. I figured I could grab both without a huge consequence considering the format and Hakeem Nicks.

This team will probably win your league, and I have no idea what the other teams look like. I wanted Rodgers but couldn't do it at #1. With the way my draft turned out, I could have had Rodgers, MoJo, and Nicks. SMH. I'm not a Felix Jones fan but he's the man in Dallas. Like Blount for a big year, Johnson and Jackson are a sick 1-2, hesitant on Harvin. But mesh them all together and you're looking real good with a solid bench.

I'm doing a couple of $10 leagues with my friends, and we want to have prizes that will keep people active each week, even if they are in the lower portion of the standings. One's a 12 team league and one's an 8 team league. Widest margin of victory for a game throughout the season would get like $5 or something is an example of what I mean.

We are also considering giving back a portion of the buy in for keeping an active roster each week, so you'd get like $.25 back each week for doing this, the rest would go to the prize pool. Any other ideas of things we could do to keep it interesting for everyone?

Some of my friends have the lowest score each week pay the highest score each week $15 bucks or a dinner or some beers or something. Makes it interesting so that people are keeping track each week.

There are a few people who are new to fantasy though, so I don't want to punish people, just want a few interesting prizes that are attainable for everyone, unlike league champion.

Default Any Thoughts On This?

I botched my first ever auction draft yesterday and have 5 WRs with a week 7 bye. Oops.

So I immediately send out trade messages and have been offered a few trades and have put out feelers on a few as well. Not a ton of good action but I have one offer that I'm thinking I will take.

The offer:
I give:
Jeremy Maclin & AJ Green (both week 7 byes)

I get:
Brandon Lloyd & Steeler DST


This league scores pretty high marks for DST and I managed to get the guy who made an offer to upgrade it to the Steelers DST. Pitt D scored 321 points in this league last year, which made them the 3rd highest scorer in the entire league - behind only Foster & Roddy.

My roster would still include a ton of WRs and it's a PPR league.
Welker / DJax / Collie / Moore / Braylon would still be on my roster along with Lloyd. I currently have no DST at all on my team. So I'd be getting a relatively fair replacement for Maclin (I'm warming up to Lloyd, he's laying out for balls even in preseason!) and I give up an uproven rookie WR for the leagues best D. Starting 2RB, 3WR, 1W/R/T & I have SJax / Greene / Wells / Woodhead / Fred Jackson.



Comments?
bump for the guy who gets ignored . . .
