5 CONF, 40 TM dynasty with deep rosters draft thoughts (1 Viewer)


We started this league about 3-4 years ago and I’ve been horrible. Mostly due to injuries and players I draft not living up to expectations. Trying to turn this thing around and I had the 2nd pick in our 10 rnd rookie draft. 8 teams per conf with 40 tms total. Players are replicated in each conf. I don’t get to watch much college football (or NFL for that matter). Just trying to gather thoughts on how I drafted or if I wasted picks. Nobody trades in this league so I was stuck with what I had no matter how hard I tried to accumulate more picks.

Starting lineup reqs:
Total Starters:34
Total Number of Starting IDP:22

My roster:
Lawrence, Trevor JAC QB
Levis, Will TEN QB

This is a SF, TE Prem, strong scoring for IDP league.

Scoring is too long winded. Basically sacks/INT are 6 pnts. Tackles for DT are 7 pnts! Sacks for DE are 10 pnts! Most other scoring is pretty typical I think.

I’ll hang up and listen now.

im gonna let someone else tackle the def side and/or correct me about the O

I think you start Lawrence and maybe Stafford. You could do Maye over Stafford but he's a bit of an unknown at this point.

I think the rb group is self explanatory: Gibbs , Mixon and Pacheco if you need a 4th-Edwards

For your TE/WR group


after that?

I'm going to stack my jags in Davis and Kirk

and Nabers
Seems odd that in a SF you didn't take Caleb Williams or MHJ at pick 1.02. Those were the two no brainer choices in SF. I am shocked Maye made it to the 3rd round. That seems crazy in a SF.

I wouldn't have wasted rookie picks on DB's. They are a dime a dozen and you can always find someone on waivers that can score.

It's virtually impossible to really understand how good/bad your team is with so many moving parts. Here are my position breakdowns:

  • QB: Old. Need a youth infusion which is hard to do in SF. Makes it even more surprising you didn't take Caleb at 1.02 (assuming he was there). I don't have much confidence in Levis so I don't give him much value
  • RB: Gibbs and not much down the pipeline. Mixon should be ok this year but might be a mid season trade candidate to help get you younger. Warren/Pacheco are serviceable but nothing special
  • WR: you have a lot of hope to producers. Chase/Dell/Nabors/Worthy are your core and build around that. Nobody else is off limits
  • TE: Are solid but could fall out quick with Andrews/Kittle injury history.
  • DT: Great DT with Buckner/Payne/Seiler/McNeil/Williams. Probably your best position. Hopefully they are worth it in your scoring
  • DE: Ouch. Not a lot here. I like Koonce but not the kind of guy you build around. Need Nolan Smith/J Johnson to take steps forward and hope Barnett continues his improvement in Houston.
  • LB: Like your core of Roquan/Baker/Speed/Anzalone and Dodson could surprise. Not good with Baker and Dodson landing in the same place though.
  • CB: Way too many on roster. If you start 4 then I would have 6 at most.
  • S: Same as CB. Too many on roster. If you start 4 I would have 6 at most.

Good Luck
Caleb Williams was available at 1.02. But something about him irks me. He wears makeup and seems like a headcase. I could see him leaving the NFL for a life in TV or movies or influencing.

MHJ went 1.01 so maybe that owner had similar thoughts as me?

Plus my WRs were poop last year thanks to Bateman and <gag> Treylon <gag>. And then Andrews and Kittle getting hurt. I figured I had to bolster my WR corps and take whatever QBs fell. I was surprised Maye was still there at 3.02!

I totally agree about the DBs. Other than S I never draft CB (or DT for that matter). But Bullard is supposed to be a versatile starter from day one. And since the league does lean heavily towards IDP I tried to add some decent depth/possible starters (at least from what I’ve gathered).

One of the owners drafted Daniels, McCarthy, and Penix with his first 3 picks!

These owners are hard to figure out because they are all over the place with their drafts.

Even with that for SF and where your QB status is headed I wouldn't be able to pass up the QB. They are gold in SF and missing out on a potential long term starter is likely going to bite you for years to come.

However, the fact that Maye stated until round 3 maybe says that this league doesn't value QB's like typical SF league owners so maybe you are ok. The step down from Caleb to Maye is potentially huge though.
