My prediction is you end up keeping Freeman into next season. What round you secure him?

First year playing Fantasy Football. With the exception of the Texans and the bigger names in the leagues, I don't know too much about other teams and such. I was trying to keep up with some fantasy FB news but at the last second, lost my cheat sheet the day before so I pretty much drafted who I knew/could remember. mean.gif

How'd I make out? 8 person league, standard scoring



Foster and RGIII are my biggest concerns since they could get injured early this season. Also, I haven't really messed with the line up too much so I'm thinking about that.

Pretty good team. If i were you I'd start Torrey Smith over Colston tho.

First things first, FF will be a lot of fun. Def. a good way/incentive to watch other teams' games && learn more about different players. There's a chance you may get hooked on FF...a very good chance. :lol

 

Rotoworld && FantasyPros will be two of your best friends throughout the season as far as keeping tabs on players/situations go. Others, I'm sure, will recommend some more good sites as well.

 

As far as your team...you did very well. Calvin + Forte is a deadly WR/RB combo. Fitz && Colston are very reliable options to round out your starting receivers (like Nick said, you may wind up starting Torrey Smith over Colston also. He'll have another very good year, possibly a career year this season).

 

Injury is a concern for Foster && RG3, but if they stay healthy, they/re gonna put in some serious work. Griffin, I think, would likely end up as your starter if he stays injury-free. Cameron's gonna be a target monster in Cleveland too. Top 2 TE ceiling, Top 5 TE is his floor IMO.

 

Denver should be improved on defense with Von Miller returning, plus Ware && Ward joining the mix. Should be a good year for your squad, overall.

Oooooooooooh. :x

 

Might just have to act as if the team doesn't exist for the year. Or maybe someone you know would be interested in running the team, but idk.

I'd keep your lineup exactly as is for week 1. I agree with another commenter - after wk1, Torrey Smith should likely be in there over Colston.

I like Colston wk1 in a dome tho.

 

I'm worried about RG3, but I think Foster is gonna be just fine.

What do you guys think about this trade?

 

I give M. Ball and Kendall Wright 

I get D. Murray and Golden Tate

 

My RBs are Z. Stacy, R. Bush, D. Sproles, and R. Rice

My WRs are R. Cobb, M. Colston, P. Garcon, and T. Smith 

 

I'm leaning towards not accepting it

Impressed, achieved balance. Russy's a top-10 fantasy QB for most, could experience a slight jump in performance despite losing Tate. Seattle addressed the receiver position with Richardson and Norwood.

Shady was my choice as well for top overall in the PPR format. Gave slight pause to consider AP and Charles. Cobb and Brown are ideal PPR players, given their speed and involvement in their respective offenses. Vereen or Spiller at RB2, high upside with C.J. Limited risk if he falters. Spiller or Crabby in the Flex is above solid. Pitta is going to feast with Kubiak. Cooks and Hill on the bench with great potential.

Curious, who did you take Pos over for IDP?

All you need RG3 for is Luck's bye week, he's not going to supplant Luck as your starter. Foster is an injury risk but also capable of double-digit rushing TD.

Definitely start Torrey Smith in the Flex over Colston. One's career is going up, the other going down.

Probably should have prefaced it by saying I am in a keeper league.  I acquired Lynch and DT last season via trades and they became keepers.  The downside to that was the fact that after those top 4 guys, the rest of my players are fairly suspect....as I didnt have a draft pick until the 4th round (which is the equivalent of the 8th round (since 48 players are kept).

Yeah, I've been looking at sleeper picks, possible trades, etc. I can tell I'll probably end up getting a bit obsessive. laugh.gif. My girl is in the league too and she knows even less about the games than I do. Probably going to end up managing her team until she gets the hang of it. She did end up getting Lynch... might try to trade her someone on the sly... nerd.gif

Now it all makes sense laugh.gif

I think you did pretty well considering the circumstances. TE is a lil weak but your 4 keepers should be able to carry your team for the most part

bench WR's are gonna be hit or miss...i think Smith will do ok in Baltimore but not a consistent WR 3, but DT and peyton could compensate there for you. TE production might not be there in Gates stays healthy.

I'm with you by risking and investing a lot in Green as a starting TE. Has all the tools, let's see the production with Gates fading.

I'd upgrade WR3. Reggie Wayne is actually your WR2. Just saw Boldin on your bench, Smitty shouldn't start over Q. When you have Peyton, you can afford to package Cutler in a trade to upgrade another position. Whether it be WR3 or TE.

I'd tentatively accept that offer. A healthy Murray is projected to be better than Ball, he's more proven. Just injury-plagued. Wright and Tate is close to a push, Wright catches more passes but Tate is better after the catch.

I might consider including Stacy rather than Ball. Can't decide which I prefer, Ball has experience fumbling issues while Stacy is being pushed by Benny and Mason.

its a yahoo league with 2 RB and 3 WR spots. spiller will be on the bench for me as long as vereen stays productive. wasnt comfortable taking crabtree but didnt want to reach for another WR. 

spiller slipped too far down not to take him. 

i took Poslusny cause hes a tackling machine, keuchly, willis, lavonta david were all gone by the time i decided to draft the IDP spot.

You have to address the RB position. Tate or Gore are both RB2's at best. West might take Tate's job and Hyde might take Gore's.

Mac9 and Q are ready if Percy gets hurt. I'd package one with S-Jax to upgrade RB2. You can do better than Gore with those receiver assets. Don't hold two defenses.

Bush is a more than adequate RB2, even in standard but I'd try to upgrade in a 10-teamer. You have Allen as surplus just riding the bench. RG3 can be worrisome if Gruden has the stones to switch to Cousins.
