FBG 2012 "How did I do" Thread

126 posts in this topic

Since we just started the 2012 FBG drafts I thought Id go ahead and start a 'how did I do' thread.

Here is my first team:

Out of the 7 hole tonight I drafted the following team:

QB: Rivers, Ponder (like Rivers upside as I still think he was hurt early and mid last year)

RB: Forte, Charles, Donald Brown, Tate, Pead, Turbin (tried to take some upside guys late to go along with my more reliable players)

WR: Jennings, Harvin, Steve Smith, Sidney Rice, Cobb, Jeffery, Caldwell (really like this WR group as I think 1+ of Cobb/Jeffery/Caldwell will break out)

TE: Celek, Gresham, Kellen Davis (not the best but I think Im OK here)

K; Bryant

D: Ravens

This is a very solid team. Perhaps there aren't any real studs, but at the same time there aren't any weaknesses. Rivers will be solid, and doesn't get hurt, D Brown should be an acceptable flex, (too bad you couldn't pick Hillis up to pair with Charles), S Smith is a very nice flex play, (Harvin will outperform him), and I do think you've got 3 solid TEs. At least one of them will shine (probably Celek) but the other two are certainly capable. I think you'll be starting 2 of them during the year if you get any RB or WR injuries. This is proof that if you're patient, and not grab a QB or TE too early, you can end up with a soid team, end to end.

Great job man! You will be able to field a lineup easily. Love the extra pick made at TE to back up Celek. The only thing I dont care for is Rivers, a brutal playoff schedule, but he's still a stud.

I see two challenges - a reliable #2 RB, and a 2nd flex. I see Tamme being one of the flexes but you're going to struggle for a 2nd one. Also, because of your weakness at RB, you might struggle even more so during byes, etc... Hillman may be getting you something in the 2nd half of the year but this contest has a very short regular season so it might be too late by the time he starts to help you. But your first two WRs, QBs, and TEs are strong. Wasn't there a better Def available?

Here's my first two teams I drafted over the weekend. went with the "get stud QB/TE, wait on RB" approach in both.

4th pick

QB: Brady

RB: J Stewart, Hillis, Hightower, Jacquizz Rodgers, Tolbert, Snelling, L James

WR: R White, Colston, Jordy Nelson, A Brown, R Wayne, B Quick

TE: Graham, H Miller, B Watson

9th pick

QB: Cam

RB: R Bush, Spiller, Tate, K Hunter, L James, Grant

WR: AJ Green, Decker, Heyward-Bey, T Young, Little, Michael Floyd, Burleson

TE: Gronk, Hernandez, Clark, Kendricks

TE: Gronk, Hernandez, Clark, Kendricks

The team with Brady should be really good. You waited on RBs but still landed two decent starters in Stewart and Hillis plus a home run pick in Jacquizz Rodgers. Your WRs are excellent for having spent high picks on TE and QB.

The other team is very bad, IMO. Your TEs are ridiculous but taking two TEs that high kind of limits your flexibility and you ended up below average at both WR and RB. You'll need a lot to go right in order to break .500 with that team.

QB - Rivers, Palmer

RB- Rice, Sproles, Ingram, Jennings, Vereen, Royster, Pierce

WR- Marshall, Colston, Bowe, Vjax, Simpson, Broyles, Tate

TE- Daniels, Winslow

Probably should have taken Helu instead of Vjax in the 7th to have had a more balanced team.

Out of the #8 spot the official

"I can't believer this holdout/injury is still going on team"

QBs: Vick, Fitzpatrick

RBs: CJ1k, MJD, Peterson, Hillis, Gerhart, Jennings

WRs: Austin, Wallace, Boldin, Crabtree, Steve Smith (STL), Chad Johnson, Mike Thomas

TEs: Keller, Dickson, Winslow

K: Gould

Dst: Lions

TEs were ripping off the board and basically everyone I had targetted went at least 6 picks before me (Owen Daniels "fell" to just 2 picks before I was going to take him). I should be able to squeeze out low end starting caliber #s from this group but obviously I am flexing out RBs.

I took Gerhart in the 8th but got lucky when no one grabbed Jennings at all and he fell to the 12th.

I do have a big issue week 11 with CJ, ADP and Gerhart all on byes leaving me with MJD/Jennings and Hillis as starters and having to flex out 2 WRs/TEs but I don't mid tryhing to figure things out in the playoffs since that means I'm there.

If MJD and Wallace show and ADP is good after he PUPs I ahve a potentially dominant team with 2 high end #2 WRs, 3 stud RBs, a top 6 QB and OK TE play and several options for my #2 flex.

Of course the whole damn thing could blow up in my face and I my masses of injury/holdout risk prevent any real traction and I start out the season 1-4 and never even make the playoffs.

I don't care how much value you see in rivers I just can't go with drafting a QB before the 12th round if you spend a 1st/2nd on Rodgers. Terriffic starting 3 WRs but you weakness at TE and age/low reception count at RB hurt the flex play and starters. That is where that pick needs to go.

The Lynch/Peterson combo is risky since ADP might not be ready and Lynch might face disciplinary action. With Wilson a rookie behind a quality guy like Bradshaw it will be hard to get production from him early enough to counteract this. With the double flex that could mean you are starting your #3 and #4 receivers the first few weeks. Like a lot of teams you hinge on ADPs health.

Lynch's lawyers are pushing his case to trial thus delaying the verdict, if he does get suspended I don't think it's until 2013. If ADP shows up I think my team could be nasty, I love Maclin this year and I think that someone will come out of the Torrey Smith, Robert Meachem battle to make my second flex not a weakness. And for some reason I'm all about Martellus Bennett, he's the self proclaimed black unicorn baby hahahhahah

To me he is good ins. So that was worth taking him. plus he can't be used against me if he is on my team.We play week 6 should be fun.Good luck

3-hole on the Red vs Blue draft last night:

Roethlisberger (10)

RG III (11)

Dalton (14)

McCoy (1)

Jamaal Charles (2)

Shonn Greene (5)

BJGE (7)

Donald Brown (8)

Dion Lewis

Miles Austin (4)

Torrey Smith (6)

Emanuel Sanders

Jerome Simpson

Jacoby Ford

Witten (3)

Keller (9)

Moeaki

Henery

SFO

DET

Overall, not a lot of slippage in this draft. QBs went earlier than last year, we decided to wait. Eli went 2 picks before us in the 8th, so we decided to wait some more.. don't think we did too bad with later round QB value.

WRs are clearly the weak point of this club, but the approach is that we're probably not going to start more than 2 any given week anyway.

Need a few things to happen for this club to compete - Charles to return to form and not get vultured too much by Hillis, Greene to step up as the undisputed go-to, Torrey Smith to capitalize on potential...

Here's my first two teams I drafted over the weekend. went with the "get stud QB/TE, wait on RB" approach in both.

4th pick

QB: Brady

RB: J Stewart, Hillis, Hightower, Jacquizz Rodgers, Tolbert, Snelling, L James

WR: R White, Colston, Jordy Nelson, A Brown, R Wayne, B Quick

TE: Graham, H Miller, B Watson

9th pick

QB: Cam

RB: R Bush, Spiller, Tate, K Hunter, L James, Grant

WR: AJ Green, Decker, Heyward-Bey, T Young, Little, Michael Floyd, Burleson

TE: Gronk, Hernandez, Clark, Kendricks

gawd that first team looks sick.

2nd team lacks rb depth and will need someone to step up at flex2 but i would be optimistic.

i was in your 2nd draft at 11:

brady

forte, donald brown, kevin smith, daniel thomas, delone carter, bernard scott, hardesty, lamar miller

harvin, wallace, denarius, santonio, davone bess

gates, keller, dickson

kinda regret taking forte over mjd now. also stupidly wasnt aware enough to grab mbush.
