Fantasy Football -- the BIG Question

12 posts in this topic

Ok -- I have a problem.

I M a Fantasy (word usage) and I have the first pick overall in a 12 team non-keeper league.

The top two choices are obvious -- AP or LT.

The question is -- do I go with my heart or my head?

I want to take AP cuz I M a viking freak like most people, but LT has done it for years and WE COUNT CATCHES.

I think I HAVE to pick AP, but am I making a mistake -- or is it too close to call, so take the Vike when you can?

I would like everyone's help.

Thanks

I'd take LT, especially if it's a point-per-reception league. AP will get better in that area, but LT catches a ton of balls.

Heck, I might even consider Westbrook over AP in a PPR league. Westbrook had 91 receptions last year and AP had 19, at 1 point per reception that's almost 12 tds!

I agree with Juan. Peterson falls down the list in a PPR league and no way should be considered at #1 regardless. Could he end up the highest scoring RB? Sure. Go with the proven horse and with your head...pick LT.

If I end up with the #2 pick in our draft I'll be picking Westbrook without question or hesitation.

But I do like playing with Vikings fans in my league because they all too often pick with their hearts, and we all know where that leaves them at the end of the year. grin

dh44,

Agree with Juan and LMIT. I think that the fact you had to step back and think about the question shows you know the real answer. Gotta be level headed in FFB.

You guys ... I tell you. You really think I can pass on my favorite player on my fav. team in my fav. state.

I paid too much Morneau in FBB and will do it for AP too.

I do see what you are saying LT is the smarter choice, but, I just can't say no. wink

Thanks

Hitman - Are you allowed to trade the pick? See if the guy at #2 would trade with you. Maybe for his 1st and #4. Longshot but I traded down one spot last year from 3rd to 4th still got my guy and picked up an extra 4th round pick!

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
