Your ideal starting lineup? (1 Viewer)


What is your ideal starting lineup for your league? Can be any type of league. Here's mine:

.5 PPR / Standard Scoring

QB: Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints)

The guy is a threat to break the passing record every season. Has shown the ability to throw 5 touchdowns in any given game and given the Saints terrible defense, he may have to. Whew, great player.

RB: Adrian Peterson (Minnesota Vikings)

Who's more consistent than AP? The guy destroys. Has the ability to break the rushing and touchdown record in any given season. He is truth, a badass. There's no doubt.

RB2: Arian Foster (Houston Texans)

The Houston Texans heartbeat is the running game. Arian Foster is the feature of that running game and based on past stats there's no reason to think he won't continue. Ride this guy to til' he stops producing. You'll be pissed if he goes off on someone elses team.

WR1: Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions)

Best Wide Receiver in the game. Matt Stafford will throw the ball a million times, if this guy isn't the number 1 Wide Receiver on the board, you're crazy. Calvin Johnson will break records.

WR2: Demaryius Thomas (Denver Broncos)

Peyton Manning is a beast. Whoever his #1 target is won't bust. Welker? He choked in the Super Bowl against the Giants the most recent time and that's all I remember. Demaryius Thomas is the true playmaker, Decker may have the edge in the RZ. But who else in the league can you honestly say has more upside? That's right, no one.

Crabtree owners take notice. Can you tell me why? Still you need to believe in Kaepernick.

WR3: Brandon Marshall (Chicago Bears)

There are few constants in the NFL and one of those constants is that Jay Cutler will relentlessly throw the ball to Brandon Marshall. You may not care about the Bears, you might not care about Trestman. But Marshall will see the ball, hands down. Those two have a repoiture.

TE1: Jimmy Graham (New Orleans Saints)

He's the best option on the team that throws the most and most efficiently. If this guy is healthy, Drew Brees will spam this guy a million times. Even when the Saints lose, Drew Brees makes sure to pad his stats.

TE2: Tony Gonzalez (Atlanta Falcons)

Uh, dude's a HOF. He posted an amazing year last year and I doubt he would come back if he didn't think he could produce and help out a Championship calibre team. Matt Ryan and him have chemistry and this team should pass a lot. He's got another elite season left in the tank, give him a go if the price is right.

DEF: Seattle Seahawks

They've got a great run game and a QB who if anything is going to make smart decisions with the ball. Their CBS are generally shutdown and provide a lot of upside. Not a lot of elite options this year, but this is the group I would roll with.





AJ Green

Julio Jones


if another flex, Gronk............dont care about 1st half, 2nd hald of the year with playoffs more important (if 1.5 PPR for TE), if not 1.5 PPR for TE, will roll with Charles

How bout this






Aj Green

Dem. Thomas


Before a recent deal, this WAS the lineup of a $750 FFPC dynasty team that is heading into year 3.

Brees, Drew NOS QB
Bush, Reggie DET RB
Lynch, Marshawn SEA RB
Peterson, Adrian MIN RB
Jackson, Vincent TBB WR
Johnson, Andre HOU WR
White, Roddy ATL WR
Graham, Jimmy NOS TE
Gostkowski, Stephen NEP PK
Texans, Houston HOU Def

My current Championship lineup is my dream lineup!



Peterson, Charles

Johnson, Marshall, Johnson

Gronkowski (with the rest of this lineup, making the playoffs won't be a problem, so I'm looking to maximize points once I get there)

San Fran



Richardson, Martin

Calvin, Green, Harvin


San Fran

That's boring/easy. Here's my "realistic" version of each, using only rosters reasonably achievable based on current ADP and pretending to draft near the middle of the order.

Redraft (non-PPR):

Bob Griffin (6th)

Jamaal Charles (1st), Montee Ball (5th)

Andre Johnson (2nd), Vincent Jackson (4th), Greg Jennings (7th)

Rob Gronkowski (3rd)

Denver Broncos (11th)

Britt in the 8th, Bryce Brown in the 9th, Pead in the 10th, Freeman in the 12th, Vincent Brown in the 13th

Late-round targets: Ryan Tannehill, Knile Davis, Denard Robinson, Mike Gillislee, A.J. Jenkins, Jeremy Kerley, Joe Morgan, Jermaine Gresham, Jordan Cameron, Dustin Keller, and Tampa Bay defense.

Dynasty (PPR):

Griffin (4th)

Charles (1st), Mathews (5th)

Harvin (2nd), Austin (6th), Patterson (7th)

Gronkowski (3rd) (this is the only pick that's really a stretch, but I can dream, can't I?)

San Francisco (12th) (couldn't find ADP data for defenses, but I'd be equally happy with Seattle or Denver, here)

Ben Tate in the 8th, Crabtree in the 9th (SoD), Bryce Brown in the 10th, Lance Moore in the 11th (I need somebody I can rely on while my rookie WRs develop).

Late-round targets: Josh Freeman, Kirk Cousins, Brock Osweiler, Nick Foles, Michael Vick, Knile Davis, Denard Robinson, A.J. Jenkins, Stedman Bailey, Joe Morgan, Aaron Hernandez, rookie TEs (Ertz, Reed, McDonald, Escobar, Toilolo), Tampa Bay D/ST

It's hard to pass up Tannehill, but there are so many great QBs I like late (Griffin/Cousins and either Freeman or Vick/Foles should leave me set at the position). Ditto that for Eifert- just too much value at the position in the late rounds. The cupboard gets pretty bare at RB and WR after 12 rounds.

I would redo this thread and make it so you can only take one person in each round and go by their current ADP.

This would be mine going by a recent draft I had.

Brees - 4.01

Peterson - 1.01

Chris Johnson - 2.01

Harvin - 3.03

Shorts 7.02

Amendola 5.03

Davis 6.06

Britt 8.09

This is PPR 1qb 2rb 3wr, 1te, 1flex and I am assuming all stay healthy, basically perfect scenario
