My draft - Be kind

9 posts in this topic

I really don't think I can repeat this year without a little help. I'm not liking my RB2s(do have some potential though), my WRs are solid, QB will be ok (if he's on the field). I'm thinking a B/B-

Anyway, give it a grade. Standard scoring 10 person league. Start QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, RB/WR, TE, K, D

QB: Schaub (still need a backup)

RB: MJD, Larry Johnson, Ray Rice, Donald Brown, McCoy, Bradshawn, James Davis

WR: Jennings, Wayne, Ocho, Desean jackson, Chris Henry

TE: Carlson, Zach Miller

K: Elam

D: Chargers

Well my cousin is pretty into FF as well as myself. He feels you need to have star power somewhere on your roster. I look at yours and dont know if you have any. Having said that, I dont know if I believe that theory. What you do need is someone who has the POTENTIAL to have a 15-25 TD season. Does MJD have that? I dont know. Mebbe. You have good balance, but I dont know if you have a horse to ride.

That is my honest evaluation and I have my auction tomorrow, so you can have at me on Friday!

MJD definatly has star power....jennings is also one of the best wr's in fantasy football...you pretty much get star power your first few picks.

i'd say your solid and good to go at WR...MJD is bomb and larry has a chance to be..rice should be decent...you have way to many RBs though....i'd personally try and get a trade on a better qb but if you like shaub he should be decent but he gets hurt alot...better have a solid backup plan.

MJD is going to have a great year. How come you have so many RBs and WRs?

Hey gundy I like your team man, you have some sneaky players there,and Ray Rice should have a break out year! Jennings & Wayne are those top tier WR I've said before on here that you need to draft in the 1st two rounds before the WR talent drops, and can't believe they both dropped that far (assuming you got MJD in round 1).

Also I've heard good things about Schaub he just needs to stay healthy thats all, as Houston has one of the top offenses in the league, should be fun to watch after being the pee-ons for the last few years. So don't worry about your QB situation, as I picked QB later too and ended up getting Schaub in the 7th, and I have no back up either on that team. Look for Flacco or Garrad or even if hes around hasselback. But overall good job!

Oh ya, good job on grabbing Brown and McCoy they will be sneaky this year, cuz Westbrook doesnt stay healthy and Addai isn't that good.

I think your roster is pretty solid. In a 10 team league there is a lot of talent to go around.

Schaub staying on the field will be a key. I like MJD, but he is more valuable in a PPR league than a standard scoring league. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by Ray Rice. Good WR group.

It's hard to give letter grades, but I'll agree with yours. Good luck!

thanks guys. It's alright. I really like the WRs and MJD, but I don't really trust LJ (old) and the rest of my RBs are young and unproven.

Cody, I would say that my "star power" would be MJD, Jennings, and Wayne. I think these 3 will all be in the top 5 of their position by the end of the year. I'm more of a depth and consistency guy.

Zamboni, I'm loaded up with RBs because I went WR heavy early on and am trying to hit a late rounder. Rather than grab a backup K, D, QB I went with the RB potential. I'll never carry more than 1 K and D unless required. Schaubs bye is week 10 and the QBs flew off the board so instead of drafting some junk QB late I thought I'd just work the waiver or trade later on.

Alright, as promisied I had my auction last nite. It was a weird auction this year. Players went all over the board.

Starters:

Qb Philip Rivers

RB Ladanian Tomlinson

RB Joseph Addai

WR Calvin Johnson

WR Braylon Edwards

TE Jason Witten

Def Pitt

K Longwell

Reserves:

Delhomme

Felix Jones

Derrick Ward (TB)

L Maroney (my last pick; swing for the fence pick)

Santana Moss

Kevin Walter

Owen Daniels

Jut plain ran out of money for my #2 RB and WR. I feel I am sitting great at WR1, TE, and Def. Thoughts?

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
