FBG 2013 "How did I do" Thread

Recommended Posts

gchuva, very nice team. Those mid-round draft slots are the best place to be. Am suprised Forte was available to you that late in the 2nd, which is a steal and gives you a couple very nice RBs, complimenting the 1st roud pick of Johnson. My only criticism would be with your QBs - not for picking RGIII, but for not picking up Cousins with your 20th pick. RG is an injury waiting to happen and Cousins gives you nice protection.

Would you pick Cousins over Rivers or go 3 QBs? I tend to only hold one or two qbs in season, but have two kickers and that will drop to 1 so I could always pick Cousins then. Assuming RGIII stays healthy week 1, I don't see my other league mates investing a roster spot on cousins to screw me.

The only QB I'd handcuff is RGIII, unless you had a very strong backup, which I don't consider Rivers to be. And Cousins has proven to be pretty good, unlike most backup QBs. You've got a strong team so it isn't easy deciding who I would have avoided for Cousins, but I would have found someone. I'd also keep Rivers and go with 3 QBs, because you still get bye protection and some injury protection with him. Yes, Cousins would be available from the waiver wire, but if RGIII goes down everyone will be bidding on him, so you'd be screwed if you didn't get him and need to rely on Rivers.

Finished up a really tough draft and ended up with the following:

QB: RGIII, Russell Wilson

RB: Charles, Sproles, Leveon Bell, Goodson, Forsett, Joique Bell, Ryan Williams

WR: Fitz, Steve Johnson, Shorts, Vincent Brown, Jenkins, Thompkins

TE: Gonzo, Myers, Walker (wish I had the Walker pick back)

K: Zuerlein

D: Giants

Tried a different strategy for this draft. The 2 QBs are going to be a headache to pick on a weekly basis. I see it as a boom or bust team with a pretty high ceiling.

Nice solid team,potential starters are all solid,nice options to choose from for flex plays,choosing a QB starter each week will be the biggest problem but with those 2 that's not a bad issue to deal with. What draft slot did you draft from?

Pick 3

Nice team. Good depth - 3 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs. That's all you can ask for. Many would like to have the problem of having a lot of quality options so they don't know who to start. Many have a tough time fielding 10 decent starters. You have 12.

Just ended up with a similar team from the 5 slot.

QB: Romo, Freeman

RB: Morris, MJD, Leveon Bell, DeAngelo, FJax, Jacquiz, Dwyer

WR: Megatron, Mike Williams, Shorts, Wright, Little

TE: Gonzo, M Lewis, Tamme,

K: Bullock and Crosby

DST: STL

Like it, don't love it. It's rare that a good team features three Jaguars

Just got done from the 5th spot....very similar to gchuva's team above except that Mega-tron went 1.03 so I got Foster instead....I loved how the draft fell. If I can get top 10 production from my TE position I like my chances to make the playoffs assuming MJD, Morris and Foster stay relatively healthy all year long. Draftwizards rated my team #1 in the league for overall and #2 for starters

BTW someone drafted Jason Witten 1.08 and the same player drafted both Brady and Matt Ryan and also got Maclin (did not know he was out for year). Another guy drafted Pitta after getting Gronk at 2.12....he thought Pitta would only miss 6 weeks and was not out for the year

My team is as follows:

QB: RG3 (6); Eli Manning (11)

RB: Foster (1); Alfred Morris (2); MJD (3) Jonathan Stewart (10); Michael Bush (14); Roy Helu (16)

WR: Reggie Wayne (4); Cecil Shorts (5); Miles Austin (7); Lance Moore (9)

TE: Owen Daniels (8); Fleener (12); Heath Miller (13); J. Thomas/Denver (20)

D/ST: Bengals (15); Ravens (17); Chiefs (19)

K: Gostowski (18)

I expect to start:

RG3

Foster

Morris

MJD

Wayne

Shorts

Austin

Daniels

D/ST & K

Lance Moore and Jon Stewart should sub in and out for bye weeks/injury depth. Hoping Heath Miller comes back strong even if it is latter part of the year to help at TE position/depth for playoffs etc.

Thoughts???

Not bad. A high floor type team, but am not seeing a ton of explosive upside. To win the league IMO, you need Green to have a top 3 WR type season and one of your relatively weak #2 RBs to be very productive.

Kimura - one of the problems with AJ Green is he will have a bye in the 1st week of the playoffs (12).....tough to win with your best player out that week. This is why I am avoiding Green, Marshawn Lynch and all Bills players (which is easy to do ... lol)

If Ball becomes the man in Denver and reproduces what McGahee + Moreno did for an entire year he will do very well....If it is a RBBC cluster####, he will struggle given Matthews stinks and Ivory is not in a good situation in terms of playing on a team with a horrible O situation

Sweetie, you were extremely fortunate to have Foster drop to you with your 5th pick and again to have MJD make it almost halhway through the 3rd. But congrats on being alert enough to take advantage. From a WR perspective, you may be having to do a lot of guessing who to get in your lineup after Wayne. Those next 3 guys could be up and down, infuriating you along the way. The one big mistake was taking 3 defenses. You only have 4 WRs (should have 5 or 6) or even a 3rd QB, particularly since you have RGIII. Friendly tip of the day: Week 1, dump KC and pick up Cousins for $1, and go from there.

We took TRich 1 and AJ 2. I think you can have one key guy on bye. The team I think that made a mistake was the one that had Law Firm as RB1. Even if he makes the playoffs, his RBs are DOA. Roddy can be a WR1 for a week with Sanders or Tavon as WR2, plus anyone we pick up over the wire.

I will disagree on the guesswork.... If Austin and Shorts are not injured, they produce very consistently. Look at their PPG last year. I am very high on Shorts. Even Lance Moore is very solid. Sure he will have a clunker every now and then but so do all WRs

As for the 3rd QB, I would never ever start Cousins over Eli. I will use the D-ST to play matchup. Chiefs play Jax week 1 ... Definitely going to start them

From the 8th spot

QB: RGIII and Rivers

RB: McCoy, Johnson, Gore, Law Firm, Jaquizz, Greene

WR: Brown, Decker, M Williams, Hartline, Jacoby Jones

TE: Witten, Cameron, Walker, Tamme:

DST: Bears

K: Gostkowski and Hauschka

My WRs aren't great, but every other spot is pretty good. I know I feel good about a team when I step up and draft DST and kicker before 18th round. Need Mike Williams not to get hurt. I have already in too many teams

I drafted this FPC team this weekend. This is my first time playing in this format (1.5 per rec for TE)

Drafted from the 10th slot:

QB- Kaepernick, Dalton

RB- Lynch, Morris, Ivory, J. Rodgers, Stacy, Leshoure

WR- White, VJax, D.Alexander, M.Austin, Hartline, Bess

TE- Housler, Ausberry, Walker

K- Akers

DEF- NE, SD

Starters would be:

QB- Kap

RB- Lynch

RB- Morris

WR-White

WR-DJax

FLEX-D.Alexander

FLEX-M.Austin

TE-Housler

K-Akers

Def-NE

I know my TEs are weak, I am taking a chance on Housler getting a lot more targets this year due to Palmer's tendency to check down and the offense system change that bodes well for TEs.

What are you thoughts?

Strong draft I think. I would have added a 4th TE rather than Bess and would have tried to handcuff one of your top 3 rbs, but I like the balance. I also think you may be cutting it too fine with Housler at TE1, but it may work out great.

Thanks. I was debating picking another TE instead of Bess. I had a problem with distinguishing value between the available TEs at the end of the draft. I think I will be working the free agent waivers for viable depth once the season starts.

Which in this format may be hard to do :(.

I was surprised with how many teams were taking multiple TEs in the middle rounds.

Waivers are not great for TE weakness. Dickson will be available in some drafts for leagues in July, and an injury may create something, but it's not easy to do. Tamme when Clark went down is a notable exception, which carried me to a title one time.

This is my team from todays early draft.I drafted from the 10 spot.Their draft analyzer ranked me 5th.Thats not going to cut the mustard.Brady went 1.1 that was a shocker.

Rodgers,Flacco

Rice,Forte,Lacy,Woodhead,Bush

Decker,Smith,S.Johnson,M.Willams,Hartline,M.Floyd

M.Bennett,H.Miller,Chandler

Bailey,Tucker

Giants,Falcons.

Hopefully I will at least compete.I will probably draft one more team.

When I was finished with this draft I was pretty satisfied.Now after looking at the archives and figuring out my weekly starters scoring avg which is 144.78.My team is just average at best.I am going to draft two more teams.I am going to have to go back to the drawing board and come up with a whole different approach if I want to compete problem is not sure what that approach should be other than draft better.

A 144 average will get you to the top two of the league, just not too much beyond that. It wouldn't suprise me if your projected average was due to going QB early. Am assuming you picked him up in the 3rd.

Out of the 6 hole my 2nd FPC

Qb- Luck, Freeman

Rb- S-Jax, Bell, Bradshaw, Woodhead, Franklin, Joique Bell, Daniel Thomas

Wr- Calvin, Nicks, Gordon, Vincent Brown, Greg Little, AJ Jenkins

Te- Gronkowski, Pitta

D/ST- Patriots, Steelers

K- Bullock

I like this team better than my last. I think it should be quite competitive if Gronk doesn't miss 6+ weeks and I stay healthy.

Not seeing alot of comments about this..but it's a very real MINOR risk many owners are taking...

Only drafting 1 kicker with no free agent / waiver pickups until AFTER week 1 can be risky. Especially taking a guy like Randy Bullock who was injured last year and has never actually done the thing we think he will do yet in the NFL.

And, not to pour salt in your wounds about Pitta being out for the season, but with Gronkowski to only take a single backup TE was a big risk this early in the summer. So if Gronk is out week 1, you are down a starter.

Hopefully Bullock pulls through and plays week 1, otherwise you may be down 2 starters and playing 8 vs 10 in week 1.

Yea I did hadn't planed on that could have had Welker,Johnson or Cruz.Gonzales was also there which probably would have been the smart pick.Just couldn't resist taking Rodgers.Brees went in 4th round and I'm sure Rodgers would have too,but could have probably had Peyton or Stafford in the 5th if I had waited.I will wait on QB till the later rounds in my next two drafts thats for sure.

My concern is that your top 3 RBs don't catch passes. Either one of those three guys are nice to have on a team, but when you go with no pass catchers at all you become totally dependent on TDs, always a risky proposition because of such low floors on any given week.

Not bad. A high floor type team, but am not seeing a ton of explosive upside. To win the league IMO, you need Green to have a top 3 WR type season and one of your relatively weak #2 RBs to be very productive.

High ceiling teams aren't always the ones that win it. In my experience, it's the low-floor teams that do better.

The team that won my league last year had Romo, A. Morris, R. Bush, R. Cobb, S. Johnson, B. Lloyd, H. Miller, J. Hanson, S. Seahawks. The final 3 were the only ones in the top 5 at their position. He had a low end QB 1, a RB1, a RB2, 3 WR2s, and 1 high-end TE1. His bench was modest as well - Mike Wallace being the only one worthy of mention. It's all about who's hot at the end of the season.

Yes I see type of comment a lot on Lynch and Morris. Last year Lynch was the #5 and Morris was the #7 overall RB in the FPC. Lynch can catch passes and should get between 25-30 catches, the other "ppr rbs" usually get 40-50 catches. The drop off isn't that much for Lynch especially since he has averaged at least 12 tds the past two seasons.

Morris wasn't really a part of the pass game last year, but he can catch. The Redskins have made an emphasis on getting Morris involved in the pass game this offseason, and it is an area he has stated should improve this year. That said I can easily see him catching 25 passes this year. I also think he scores 15+ Tds this year.

Add in their consistency and usage in the red zone, I will take them ahead of guys like Forte, Sproles, Bush, Johnson, Jackson or Gore in all of my drafts. Just my preference.

Ivory really hasn't been featured in an offense that gave him opportunity to catch a lot of passes, NO usually saved those plays for Thomas and Sproles. Not sure if we can assume he won't be involved in the pass game.

I think it has potential. Your banking on getting a healthy Gronk, and Your RB depth to produce. Not sure how long it will take for Bell to get the bulk of the carries as Dwyer may still start the season as the leader in a rbbc. Gordon will miss the first two games as well.

From the 5 spot on Saturday

Russell Wilson, Josh Freeman, Ryan Tannehill

Stevan Ridley, Maurice Jones-Drew, Frank Gore, Ryan Mathews, Jacquizz Rodgers, Denard Robinson

Steve Smith, Mike Williams, T Y Hilton, Justin Blackmon

Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis, Brent Celek, Tyler Eifert
Matt Prater, Garrett Hartley

Green Bay Packers

Could have taken Megatron at 1.5, but think Graham will have greater domination at his position.

3 QB's because Wilson has a week 12 bye

2 K's cause we're a long way from week 1

Plan is to spend most of my BB $'s at WR

I think this is a solid club. WR issues are easiest to mask IMHO. I personally believe in Freeman as much as Wilson, so I think you have a very good club. I would take this as a draft result for my own team.

White, Nicks, JJones, Moore, Randle, Edelman

Daniels, Keller

Crosby, Gould

Seahawks, Ravens

Not sure if I should've taken Welker or Amendola instead of Gore and then Bradshaw instead of Jones. Any thoughts?

Just finished out of the 7th hole....surprisingly Ray Rice went top 4 and Calvin Johnson and Jimmy Graham fell to me.... I kept going back and forth and finally went with Mega-tron.

My team is as follows:

QB: Dalton (12); Freeman (13); Rivers (14)

RB: Morris (2); MJD (3); DeAngelo Williams (7); Mikel Leshoure (10); Shonn Greene (15); Peyton Hillis (19)

WR: Megatron (1); Reggie Wayne (4); Cecil Shorts (5); Steve Smith/CAR (6); Miles Austin (8)

TE: Antonio Gates (9); Gresham (11)

D/ST: Texans (16); Rams (17); Chiefs (20)

K: Justin Tucker (18)

I hope between Williams; Leshoure and Greene I can find a decent RB3 for byes/injury depth....otherwise I realize I do not have great QB or TE but I plan to play QBBC and Def BC .... and ride my 4 stud WRs and 2 very solid RBs all the way

I just had a weird draft from the 10 spot. i definitely veered from my balanced gameplan and went RB heavy and QB earlier than I planned. plus my first 2 picks are both off in week 12, so I grabbed more RBs in rounds 3 & 4.

QB : Newton (5), Kaepernick (8), Schaub (17)

RB: McCoy (1), Lynch (2), MJD (3), Gore (4), R Williams (14), Mike Bush (16)

WR: Steve Smith (6), Jennings (7), Blackmon (10), D Moore (12), C Givens (13)

TE: Gresham (9), Keller (11) -- 8 TE went in the 11th round!.... Winslow JR (19) -- can cut Winslow fast if he doesn't make team, otherwise potential flex TE/starter

DEF: Bears (15)

K - Gostkowski (18), Bullock (20)

With McCoy & Lynch being off week 12, that could be painful in the playoffs, but I knew I could get solid RB3/RB4 guys at the end of rd3/4.. and i took MJD over Wilson/McFadden, and Gore was still there in rd4.

Clearly my WR are pretty weak, and TE is rather weak too, but if Blackmon plays like a WR2 after his suspension I have a shot at a studly team. Since its July, i grabbed QB Schaub as a 3rd option in the 17th round just in case injuries strike Newton or Kaepernick...but if it was closer to the season I would have just went w/ the 2 QBs.

Picks in the first half of the draft...

R1 - McCoy

R2 - Lynch

R3- Jones Drew

R4- Gore

R5 - Newton

R6 - Steve Smith

R7 - Jennings

R8 - Kaepernick (there were still 4 teams without a QB, and the Draft Dominator had him as QB5, so scooped up some value

R9 - Gresham (TE were going fast)

Just finished out of the 7th hole....surprisingly Ray Rice went top 4 and Calvin Johnson and Jimmy Graham fell to me.... I kept going back and forth and finally went with Mega-tron.

My team is as follows:

QB: Dalton (12); Freeman (13); Rivers (14)

RB: Morris (2); MJD (3); DeAngelo Williams (7); Mikel Leshoure (10); Shonn Greene (15); Peyton Hillis (19)

WR: Megatron (1); Reggie Wayne (4); Cecil Shorts (5); Steve Smith/CAR (6); Miles Austin (8)

TE: Antonio Gates (9); Gresham (11)

D/ST: Texans (16); Rams (17); Chiefs (20)

K: Justin Tucker (18)

I hope between Williams; Leshoure and Greene I can find a decent RB3 for byes/injury depth....otherwise I realize I do not have great QB or TE but I plan to play QBBC and Def BC .... and ride my 4 stud WRs and 2 very solid RBs all the way

Can't go wrong with either Graham or Calvin.

I like Dalton more than most. They're really surrounding him with talent. I like Freeman too. I suspect either could end up starting most games for you.

RB's look good though I'm curious to see how Morris follows up last year. I think MJD's going to outperform his ADP. Williams too.

WR's look really strong.

Not a big fan of either of your TE's. No longer a believer in Gates as an every week starter and think Gresham will do more blocking while Eifert becomes the pass catcher.

Don't see the value in having more than 1 D.

Would have taken a 2nd K. Tucker has no competition, but it's early and they sometimes get hurt.

A contender, but to money, I think your TE's (a premium position in this format) must produce.

I just had a weird draft from the 10 spot. i definitely veered from my balanced gameplan and went RB heavy and QB earlier than I planned. plus my first 2 picks are both off in week 12, so I grabbed more RBs in rounds 3 & 4.

QB : Newton (5), Kaepernick (8), Schaub (17)

RB: McCoy (1), Lynch (2), MJD (3), Gore (4), R Williams (14), Mike Bush (16)

WR: Steve Smith (6), Jennings (7), Blackmon (10), D Moore (12), C Givens (13)

QB's are strong, but you can only play 1. If Cam gets hurt, you'll be glad you have Kaep. If he doesn't, you might wish you had gone after a better TE instead.

RB's look really strong. I think MJD's going to outperform his ADP. Good move protecting yourself in week 12. Also provides good Flex options.

I'm OK with your WR's. I also like Blackmon after he comes back

Not a big fan of Gresham as I think he will do more blocking while Eifert becomes the pass catcher. OTH, I like Keller as a sleeper. He's produced in the past when someone was throwing him the ball and I'm a fan of Tannehill.

Even with your (probable) weak TE position, I think you be a strong contender during the season. Week 12 may be a problem if your TE's are not producing and you lose key RB's due to byes. However, that's a long way away.

We have very similar teams except I went with Roddy in rd3. Also dont believe in taking a QB early. Can't really understand taking 2 but I guess we'll see. I think Kaep and Newton will have similar numbers but you could've had a stronger WR or TE. I couldn't believe Lynch fell to me at 2.04 but I guess its not that rare. Do you think he gains or loses value with the Harvin injury?

I totally understand the value of waiting on QB, but part of me feels it may be a bit extreme this year.

When you have to submit a lineup every week like in FPC, if you wait until Round 7 or 8 and let the draft "pick your QB for you" that is the sweet spot as far as value goes. You can get Griffin/Kapernick/Luck/Romo/Wilson as the 10th to 12th team drafting your starter and have a solid lineup around him.

Now in best ball / draftmaster formats, I'm a huge fan of waiting even longer and taking 3 "qb2" types, as their combined production will give you top10 #s

Your RB depth is great! I could see you getting 60+ points a week from starting McCoy, Lynch, MJD and Gore.

I think you should have skipped on Kaep since you had Newton already, and grabbed another top 30ish WR to help with your WR depth. As far as TEs go, after the top 5 there really is much difference at the position, I think youll get average production from Gresham and Keller.

I think it is a solid team, but WR depth could have been better.

Picking from the 11th spot on Tuesday. My first draft and I really like my team but the draft expert gave it a low grade. Probably because I had to reach to get the guys that I wanted.

SJackson(2), DWilson(3), LBell(4), BGEllis(9), DRobinson(16),

Dez Bryant(1) ,CShorts(5),TY Hilton(6), StJohnson(7), GTate(10), BLafell (12),

FDavis(11), DWalker(13), BWatson(19),

Hauschka (20),

Arizona (17), Miami (18).

any thoughts?

From the 2 spot

QB - Manning (5), Dalton (15)

RB - Charles (1), Murray (3), Lacy (6), Ball (7), Hillman (9), Kniles Davis (20)

WR - Cobb (2), Nicks (4), Givens (10), Sanu (12), Malcolm Floyd (13), Riley Cooper (17)

TE - Gates (8), Mercedes Lewis (11), Heath Miller (14)

K - Tucker (18)

Def - Steelers (16), Packers (19)

I officially drafted the all injury team. If they stay healthy I'll be good to go(not likely). Think any of these TE's will pan out?

With Pitta and Hernandez gone and Gronk hurt, would it be silly to consider Graham at the 1.03? I'd really like to own him, but I feel like there's no way I can take him over Martin, Charles, etc. many of the next batch of TE's go way too early imo so I feel like its either Graham or pound TEs in the 10-12 range.
