I'm trying to get into the site and see who I picked. (yes, I failed to write my guys down) I am getting a page error. Anyone else getting that too?

 
The pictures under your user name - how do you get that? :confused:
Ah. My bad. At the top right of any page on this message board, click on the link for My Controls.

On the ensuing page, there is a menu on the left side. Halfway down you should see a section for Personal Profile. Select the option "Edit Avatar Settings".

From this page, you can upload an avatar (pic). It works better if you Browse for one from your hard drive - your other options are to use the cheap pictures that are provided by the site (bad selection), or link one in from another web site (slow and unreliable).

Qb- Collins, Brady, HolcombeRb-Davis, George, Staley, O.SmithWR-Moss,Morgan,Lelie,Morton, Tim Brown,GallowayTE-Pollard, CrumplerK-Carney, WilkinsDT-Baltimore, DallasI am pretty sure that was my team :confused:

 
I'm surprised at how many people didn't go with a big 3 TE. Looking at the projections, Gonzalez projects to about 250 points for 21 bucks while that's the same point total for a Coles or Holt for 32/34. I thought that was great value. My team:QB: Manning, Brady, CollinsRB: Marshall, E George, Onterrio, AlstottWR: Reed, Galloway, Streets, Warrick, Hilliard, BrownTE: Gonzo, LewisPK: Elam, LongwellD: Balt, PittWR is obviously the weakest position. My theory on that is that even if you buy a Plaxico/Ward/Holt/Horn type of stud, they will still have weeks where they don't do much. Even the top 3 had bad weeks. I decided to pay for the consistency at RB. Even Alstott I have projected to around 170 points which is great for $7. If my 6 WR score in the 5-7 TD range, I think the WRs will be strong in the start 3 setup.

FYI - 3 of your 4 RBs share a week 10 bye.
Guess we now know what kind of FF player Burning Sensation is. Hey Burning...want to join my league!!! :no:
 
RBGarnerO. SmithStaleyHearst
Are you aware that Garner's hurt, Onterrio doesn't have the starting job yet, Staley missed most of the offseason and may be extremely limited behing Buckhalter, and Hearst is behind an emerging Barlow? Or, even if most of your guys do pan out, that Duce has a bye week 3, by which time Onterrio may not have the starting RB job?It seems like you're laughing at a lot of people's teams for someone who posted this kind of BackField of Dreams...
 
Hearst has been "behind an emerging Barlow" the past two years. I like Barlow, but I tend to think that there's a reason he hasn't overtaken Hearst. I live in the bay area and all indications are that the SF backfield will be more of the same this year.

I may be laughing but you are the jacka** takinf the potshots. I just checked this whole thread and noticed that you, the high and mighty, didn't even have the cahones to post your team. Must be a real winner.Come on BIG MAN!!! Post your team and let the bullets fly!! What a D*CK!!! :no:
 
Funniest thing I've seen since "American Wedding"
I'll have to take your word that American Wedding was in fact funny. Personally, I'd indeed need your aforementioned bag over my head to avoid getting caught paying money for such cheap humor. Lemme guess, you are 25 or younger; or you sport a mullet?BTW, nice breakdown on your strategy. I disagree with your RB strategy, but I've found success in stranger places.Good luck.Adios.

Didn't spend all week analyzing.

Got mine in in sort of a rush before the deadline so I could have given a little more consideration to the byes (TE especially). Felt I found some pretty good values in there.QB: Collins, Holcombe, Fiedler ($10 - Holcombe is probably best bargain out there)RB: Portis, Canidate, Dunn, Pittman ($105 - looks like its Portis, Pittman week 8)WR: Bruce, D. Jackson, Toomer, Bennet, Boerigter, Northcutt ($71 - some good value to be had here)TE: Crumpler, Teyo Johnson ($5 - I'm aware of their bye issue. Had covered until added Teyo last minute)K: Brien, Stover ($4 - bargain bin with kickers who are solid when given opportunity)DEF: STL, SF ($5 - Sch. with 4 AZ, 2 CHI, 2 DET, 2 CINC, and 2 BAL (rookie QB) means great value)

 
QB-Brady, Collins, HolcombeRB-Portis, George, Mack, SODWR-Toomer, Morgan, Wayne, Andre Johson, Ferguson, GallowayTE-mcmichael, millerK-J. Brown, LongwellD-Hou, SEAWent for cheap QB's who I think will throw a lot this year.At RB I got 1 stud, one steady Eddie and a couple of guys that I hope blow up occasionally.At WR, I went for the dreaded QB/WR hookup (twice) and then just went for cheap startersI'm a big fan of McMichael this year, and almost everyone has miller.Don't have much to say about the K's, really.D is where I took my flyers. I'm hoping Rhodes improves SEA and/or that their offense puts the D in good situations. The Texans are in year 2 of Capers' D, so I expect more production from them this year.

You are not going to win with those WR's. You have no studs and put put a lot of your eggs in Ashley Lelie's basket is suicide.
 
What I can remember:QB: McNair, Holcomb and CollinsBoy, if Holcomb goes down this contest changes considerably. McNair and Holcombe have the same bye, but I wanted them both.RB: J. Lewis, George, K Faulk, DuckettLike Faulk alot in this format and made a last minute change from Gordon to Duckett because Duckett has a better chance of seeing the fieldWR: Driver, Pinkston, A Johnson, Patten, McCareins, ??? (Maybe D Jackson?)Don't remember the other WR, but I think he was a $18 - $20 guy. Like Patten and A Johnson.TE: Crumpler, McMichaelAs with Holcomb, a Crumpler injury changes this contest. Had to take a decent TE with 2 pt/rec. K: ???, J BrownI have no idea. I think I was looking at Stover and Dawson at one pointD: TB, ???Had to take the best D out there. Surprised that more money wasn't spent on this position. I think it will be a difference maker even without the Points/Yards against.

Well, if i make it to week 10 i should finish better than most. At that point i will do this :wall: for not checking my bye weeks before re-editing my team last night.

Yes, as previously stated, I rolled the dice at receiver; whereas you rolled the dice at TE, PK and DEF. ... Oh yeah, at RB too.I read other folk's drafts with interest; you read with ridicule. Guess what I think about that.

Not ridicule...COMMON SENSE!!!Exactly how did I "roll the dice" at TE and DEF. My TE's are no better than yours and like I said in my strategy breakdown, return TD's are HUGE!!! Wasting big money on a big DEF is not smart spending when every team can get INT, FUMBLE RECOVERIES, and SACKS. There was plenty of value there at lower prices. I think you took a bigger "roll of the dice".But, I guess that's why we play the games and why there will always be debate on this board.The shepherd is coming. You better get going.... :rolleyes:

OK, we've got another guy guilty of repeated changes and not writing down the final ones because I thought I would be able to view my roster. But I did submit my amounts and I think that I have figured it out.QB - Due to the fact that you had three to produce only one score, I felt that you needed to scrimp here. I originally spent about $8, but upped it to $11 at the end.Maddox $5, Collins $4 and Holcombe $2RB - I felt that you had to get a couple of guys that were likely to be consistent. I have seen a lot of top 7 RB types matched with 3 I hope they get the job characters or RBBC guys and I felt you needed two likely to score and two who could support. Spent $98, almost half my cap here.A. Green $49, getting no love, but catches many passes and I'm thinking GB will be solid again this season.George $25, low ypc but he seems to still be the guy and will score a lot of TDs and could improve on his ypc as well.Hambrick $18, my third starter who I hope Parcells keeps on the field.O Smith $6, ok I'm addicted to the board and we've been hyping this guy for months...hope I am still alive when he kicks in about week 5. Wondering why I didn't consider picking up Gary, who I have been trying to get in my league?WR - Need to have three score, but my expense at RB forced me to look for bargains, spent $72.Mason $26, the guy in TennesseeD Jackson $17, maybe aas good as K Rob and a lot cheaperLelie $14 Hoping he turns into no. 1 for DenverHilliard $8, decide to get him instead of Toomer, maybe should have gotten bothGalloway $4, no just by himselfBoerigter $3, hoping he has a few big games or turns into KC #1TE - spent low only $6, with Crumpler and Miller, I consider both bargains.K - Spent $5, I know i chose Stover at $2, but can't remember which of the $3 guys that I chose.Defense - Spent $8, Baltimore and Dallas. Ravens because I think they will be very good and Dallas was the cheaper team that the bye week schedule matched up with the Ravens.Great contest and enjoying reading all the entires.Hoping to compete well, but need for Ahman Green to score a few more TDs than everybody is counting on. :thumbup: :thumbup: One comment about picking both of the Dallas WRs, what happens if Terry Glenn outplays both of the other two?

 
For what it is worth:QB: Favre, Hasselbeck, HolcombRB: A.Green, Dillon, Bettis, M.MorrisWR: KJ, Rogers, Galloway, T.Brown, M.Muhammad, BradfordTE: Shockey, D.ClarkPK: Akers, ViniteriDEF: Bal, NE

The shepherd is coming. You better get going...
I spent my stud dollars on Edgerrin James. I picked Maurice Morris, Wayne Chrebet, Dallas Clark, Reggie Wayne and Peter Warrick; I went way above the norm on QB dollars; Lelie was my top-dollar WR.I'm a sheep??
 
I went with a no stud - no dud strategy. Even the studs have down weeks. I didn't want to depend on a cast of nickel players to pick up the slack the weeks when my stud had a bad week. Instead I built a cast of mid-tier players. I made sure that no position had multiple byes the same week. I also looked a match-ups within each position to try to find the best combos for byes and match-ups.My goal thru week 9 wasn't to try and be a top scoring team each week but just be in the upper half to avoid elimination. Then in week 10 only the top 64 of 250 advance (top 25%). So I made sure none of my players were on bye week #10.Like BostonFred I couldn't resist spending the few extra dollars on the TE/PK/DT positions. Thought it was a good strategy to differeniate my team from most of the others who would be skimping at these positions.(Bye weeks)Hasselback(4)/Bledsoe(9)/Maddox(7) = $8+5+5=18George(9)/Zerroue(7)/Dunn(8)/Mack(5) = $25+25+16+12=78Morgan(9)/Taylor(5)/Muhhammed(3)/Hilliard(4)/Wayne(7)/Rogers(6) = $20+18+12+8+7+6=71Jones(7)/McMichael(4) = $8+7=15Wilkins(5)/Grammactica(4) = $4+4=8Baltimore(5)/Pittsburgh(7) = $5+5 = 10That's my team :bag:

 
From what I remember of my winning roster :thumbup: QB - M. Hasselbeck, K. Collins, K. HolcombAs many others have noted, 3 good value QB's with potential to put up big numbers any week. My only worry is that Hasselbeck and Collins both have their bye week in week 4. Hopefully Holcomb lights it up. RB - M. Faulk, A. Green, D. Staley, J. WhiteDefinitely went with stud RB theory here. I think Faulk and Green are going to be huge in this scoring system and they will have to carry my team. Staley and White should be adequate bye week fillers.WR - Q. Morgan, A. Lelie, J. Walker, B. Finneran, J.J. Stokes, A. BryantHad to skimp a little here with the RB's I went with. I like Morgan and Lelie to be solid and just hope one of the other $2 WR's has a decent week.TE - B. Franks, A. CrumplerAnother position I had to go cheap, but Franks and Crumpler should be good enough.K - M. Anderson, R. Longwell2 good kickers, 1 should score well each week.DEF - Ravens, Chiefs??I don't remember who I picked for defense, but does it really matter.

 
[EDIT: Finally got to see the real team and made the changes below]

Strictly from memory, I'm not to sure about the WRs.

Player (TEAM) - BYE - PRICE

Quarterbacks

-Tried to get a good group that has the potential for big weeks at little cost

Green, Trent (KC) - 9 - $10

Brady, Tom (NE) - 10 - $5

Maddox, Tommy (Pit) - 7 - $5

Running Backs

-Blew a big chunk on LT, but he is the man ya know. A.Zero for the pass catching and big game potential. Williams for a could be starter on a good offense cheap, and the same for Buckhalter who will be at Dallas when 2 of my RBs are on a BYE, and I don't think any other players will be out that week so hopefully I can make up enough of it to make the cut.

Tomlinson, LaDainian (SD) - 6 - $71

Zereoue, Amos (Pit) - 7 - $25

Buckhalter, Correll (Phi) - 3 - $10

Williams, Moe (Min) - 6 - $7

Wide Receivers

-Again tried to get a bunch of guys that have big game potential cheap. Could be off on some of these guys. I think Corey Bradford was a steal at $2 considering he will probably have 3-4 big games and I don't have to guess which ones they'll be.

Bruce, Isaac (StL) - 5 - $22 - wrong

Toomer, Amani (NYG) - 4 - $24

Muhammad, Muhsin (Car) - 3 - $12

Morton, Johnnie (KC) - 9 - $6 - wrong

Johnson, Kevin (CLE) - 9 - $4

Ferguson, Robert (GB) - 8 - $4

Galloway, Joey (Dal) - 3 - $4

Bradford, Corey (Hou) - 5 - $2

Tight Ends

-Took a risk with Teyo, no guts no glory

Miller, Billy (Hou) - 5 - $3

Johnson, Teyo (Oak) - 8 - $2

Kickers

-I see Reed as having a huge year, and sinse they don't mark off for misses.

Reed, Jeff (Pit) - 7 - $3

Stover, Matt (Bal) - 5 - $2

Defenses

-Put this in the night before the big Lawyer Milloy news, and I can't access the site from work to change it. Hopefully it will work out.

New England - 10 - $4

Indianapolis - 7 - $3

There it is. My main strategy was, since we don't have to pick the starters, to fill the lower spots with guys that have big game potential. Those ones who end the year with just decent numbers, but have a big standard deviation that may have stopped me from taking them in my regular league.

This was the best strategy I've read so far. Makes me wish I could redo my team. I don't remember specifically who I picked but I know I have Portis and his bye week is week 10.
 
QB ($13): Ramsey $6, Maddox $5, Holcomb $2RB ($115): Barber $49, S Davis $35, Zereoue $25, O Smith $6WR ($57): Morgan $20, Jackson $17, Wayne $7, Morton $6, Bryant $3TE ($6): Pollard $3, Miller $3K ($5): Reed $3, Stover $2D ($4): Cincy $2, NYG $2 Strategies:Overall - try to not put all my eggs in one or two baskets, and avoid players with a week 10 bye.QB - Just like almost everyone else. Grab a few cheap ones and hope one of them produces each week.RB - after looking at most of the teams posted, I'm a little worried that I didn't grab a big-time stud. But I'm comfortable with the guys I have.WR - tried to get all WR's who are the #1 or #2 guy for their team. Whether I actually did that is debatable, but I should get some consistent points from this group.TE - decided these two were the next best thing to grabbing a "big 3" TE.K - whateverD - ditto

 
I think the winning team will be composed of a few big time players along with a few sleepers that blew up. There are a ton of ways to win though so it's hard to really praise one strategy and one strategy alone. If someone had a combo like Faulk/Barber and then had a few receivers like Joey Galloway and Marc Boerigter surprise then that person could really be tough. Likewise, if someone had Moss/Burress and then had two backs like O. Smith and Marcel Shipp emerge then they too could be in the money. Personally, I went with two relatively affordable WR's that I think can play well above their costs. I went cheap at RB aside from Faulk with my main hope being that Onterrio Smith steps up. Certainly I'd be more confident if I had a RB duo like Faulk and Portis, but if Smith emerges as a decent back then I will have saved a lot of money that I would have needed to spend on a proven RB to get a similar level of production.Lasting a long time in this competition will ultimately come down to picking players who exceed their value while also making the right choices with the more expensive players.

QBs- Collins, Kitna, HolcombRBs- Barber, Zereoue, Dunn, O.SmithWRs- Holt, Stallworth, Hilliard, Wayne, Morton, FinneranTEs- Crumpler, MillerKs- Carney, DawsonDs- Ravens, TitansI havn't seen anyone else with Stallworth. I also think $9 at QB is the cheapest so far. :o

 
Seems like alot of folks are counting on O. Smith keeping that RB job in MIN after M Bennett returns from his injury. I spent my 6.0 on Bennett, the MIN starter the second half of the year. Anyone else go with Bennett?

 
No one really knows at this point, but a lot of people think Bennett is out for the year and possibly even forever.

 
QB: Manning, Ramsey, HolcombRB: Lewis, Davis, A.Smith, O.SmithWR: Q.Morgan, D.Jackson, R.Wayne, C.Rogers, Galloway, D.ThompsonTE: Crumpler, MillerK: Akers, MareDef: Miami, Baltimore

 
I live in one of the states that cannot receive any prize so at first I didn't really think about this until the deadline approached and the competitve juices started flowing. As a result I basically changed the scoring and the prices to one of my cheatsheets from an earlier draft. The problem with this is none of those leagues use receptions so my reception projections were not as good as they shoud have been.At QB I went with the what appears to be the consensus and went 3 cheap QB's. At 11 points total I like Drew Bledsoe Buf 9 (5) Kerry Collins NYG 4 (4) Kelly Holcomb Cle 9 (2)I'm a little concerns about the week 9 bye overlap, but I preferred Bledsoe to Brady and Holcomb was too much a steal at 2. At RB I just thought that Tiki and Davis were the values. Otherwise it was two players whom could be #1s. Another potential by problem in week 3, but I hoped that Gary would play enough early that it didn't matter - maybe I'm gone at this point. Tiki Barber NYG 4 (49) Stephen Davis Car 3 (35) Duce Staley Phi 3 (5) Olandis Gary Det 6 (2)At WR there wasn't much strategy other then looking for players that should do well relative to their price. Plaxico Burress Pit 7 (31) Darrell Jackson Sea 4 (17) Ashley Lelie Den 10 (14) Johnnie Morton KC 9 (6) Steve Smith Car 3 (2) Corey Bradford Hou 5 (2)At TE I think the Big 3 TEs is probably a Big 7 or 8. I just don't think there is the separation that everyone else sees. That being said I joined the crowd with- Alge Crumpler Atl 8 (3) Billy Miller Hou 5 (3)I had cap room so I splurged on Kickers David Akers Phi 3 (5) Jason Elam Den 10 (4)I don't know that Defense matters at all here, but again I splurged a bit Baltimore --- 5 (5) Indianapolis --- 7 (3)Since I can't get the bucks, I hope this is just another run of the mill lineup.

 
Well, seeing as how I have no idea who is on my team, (save for B Johnson, Hasselhoff and the Bucs D) and I didn't even bother to look at bye weeks, I'd say I have no chance. :bag:Doesn't matter, can't win the $$$$ anyways (stupid Florida laws).

 
Anyone have an idea when we can hit a link to view our team? I was out of town and picked forever ago and don't have a idea other than a few fliers.

 
QB - Brady ($5/10), Maddox ($5/7), Fiedler ($4/4) - $14

As others have stated, cheap QBs can combine to give stud QB numbers.

RB - Martin ($37/5), George ($25/9), Zereoue ($25/7), Staley ($5/3) - $92

Theory here is don't put all eggs in one basket--3 of FBGs top 21 RBs here plus Staley who finished top 15-20 last season.

WR - Toomer ($24/4), Driver ($22/8), Lelie ($14/10), Andre Johnson ($5/5), Galloway ($4/3), Ferguson ($4/8) - $73

Felt Toomer and Driver were good value for $20+ receivers. Added Ferguson cheap to (hopefully) lock up the big GB receiver each week. Added upside players Lelie, Johnson, and Galloway--each of them should have a few weeks with a long TD or two, which could enable them to break into the lineup.

TE - Crumpler ($3/8), Pollard ($3/7) - $6

Looked for cheap value here.

K - Morten Andersen ($3/9), Longwell ($3/8) - $6

Again, cheap value.

D - Baltimore ($5/5), Tennessee ($4/9) - $9

Two top notch defenses for $9.

-----

Spread out the bye weeks, no positions are doubled except the two GB receivers. I felt late bye weeks were better than early bye weeks, which doesn't seem to be the popular opinion here, but mine are spread out fairly well anyway.

 
I really felt like everyone was going to have this team, just paranioia. You guys did good work and I don't feel so good about my squad now, LOL!Hasselback 8.0Collins 4.0Holcomb 2.0(call him Mr. 15,000!!!)Portis 62.0Zeroue 25.0(risky early on, but the reception points made me chose him)Stephen Davis 35.0(never would have taken him if I didn't draft last night, but I took him there and this is a game of luck, and he could florish, ahh hell I"m just trying to convince myself)Marcel Shipp 3.0(good low value back, but I'll have to survive early to have any chance of seeing his impact, Emmitt blowing out his wheel opening day wouldn't hurt either)Boetrighter 2.0(need filler and he could put up some digits)Lelie 14.0 (see O.Smith. Need to survive to the late upside)Porter 19.0(good value, I'm sure he's on a lot of squads though)Drew Bennett 6.0(taking a flyer he'll notch some TD's opposite Mason)Northcutt 2.0(Really wanted Quincy, but he was about 20 bucks more)Jurvicious 2.0(right in that mediocre occasional TD scorer club Boerigther and Northcutt inhabit, but him and BJ seemed to have a little somethin somethin going at the tail end of last year)Doug Jolley 3.0(Teyo concerns me, but what value)Billy Miller 3.0 Matt Stover 2.0Steve Christie 2.0(at only 3pts per FG, these guys are great value based upon the fact that their offenses are good enough to find the redzone, but not great enough to score TOO muchBaltimore 5.0Dallas 3.0(both huge bargains at those rates)

Well, since I'm a computer programming nerd, I wrote a quick program to come up with the most efficient starters (after I chose my backups) given all the salaries and my projected fantasy points for each player. I think I made a slight change to what it gave me though. Anyway, I think it was something like this:

QB

Culpepper

Maddox

Brady

RB

Faulk

Zereoue

Staley

A. Smith

WR

Galloway

R. Wayne

J. Morton

K Johnson

Patten

Thompson

(for some reason I can't remember if these are all correct)

TE

Gonzo

Pollard

K

Wilkins

Longwell

DT

Baltimore

Kansas City

I was glad to see this kind of output - WR BC. The way I look at it, the WR position is the best one to run by committee considering you get 6 to choose from. We'll see!
