"Rate my Draft" Thread

Recommended Posts

12 team Standard (no money) snake draft (5th pick)

 

  1. Jamaal Charles
  2. Brandon Marshall
  3. Rob Gronkowski
  4. Ryan Matthews
  5. Nick Foles
  6. Julian Edelman
  7. Emmanuel Sanders
  8. Tom Brady
  9. Fred Jackson
  10. Bengals D/ST
  11. Nick Novak
  12. Martellus Bennett
  13. Mike Evans (dropped for Kelvin Benjamin)
  14. Steelers D/ST (dropped for Josh Gordon)

Opinions?

 

I like this draft a lot. I like the 2 drops/adds for Gordon and Benjamin even more.

 

You are going to be loaded at WR soon, starting shopping for another RB1. Eddie Lacy might be a decent buy low.

Not bad.  I avoided Charles in all my leagues though.  I think he's more prone to injury than some of the other top flight RB's because of his body type, and KC had some OL concerns coming in.  His Week 1 performance did nothing to dissuade me from that point of view. 

 

Then again I picked Tennessee to win Week 1, I think they're a playoff team this year with an underrated defense and Ken Whisenhunt running the offense (see how Rivers did without him this week?  Yeah.....).  Charles will have much better days, and he's one of the few RB's out there who's shown that he can win you a week on his own.

 

Love that you got Marshall and then Sanders in the 7th, that's a solid duo.  But you better be active on the waiver wire for RB's.  If Charles gets hurt and WHEN Mathews gets hurt, you're screwed.  At least its not for money.  :)

 

How many WRs do you start in a standard league?

 

He's got Marshall, Edelman, Sanders, Benjamin and Gordon (eventually). He should be able to deal away a WR or combine a WR+RB for a better RB. It's a pretty solvable problem.

Theoretically yeah, but I never like the idea of leaving a draft with only 3 RB's.  Problem is it seems like everyone is loaded at WR this year unless you're in a 12 or 14-team league.  So you'll have to pay a premium for RB's.  If you don't get them in the draft you'll always be chasing after them later.

 

Leagues I'm in generally use 2 RB's, 2 WR's, and a flex spot for RB/WR/TE.  In 1 Yahoo money league I'm in they're use 3WR with no flex.

Pierre Thomas is a nice RB2 he can consider too, who shouldn't require much to get.  He is/will be getting all the RB receptions that went to Sproles last year.  I had thought he'd split that role with Cooks but it seems like they're using Cooks downfield a bit thus far rather than in that "space guy" role.

I don't disagree, but I still think it is a fixable problem for him. Waivers + if he makes an offer like Edelman and Matthews for a Lacy, then he's all set.

Damn, if you pull that off I want in on your league next year.

Lol I just pulled it off. He was hurting at WR, and had some good RB depth so he didnt have too much of a choice

And like clockwork Murray having a big day.  Though I imagine you won't have him till next week?

No, which sucks because I had Jamaal Charles and Ryan Mathews as my RBs...... screw FF.

 

But, Julian Edelman had a good game, so I don't feel too bad.

So, this team ^^^^ is off to an unprecedented 0-2 start. NONE of the receivers are living up to their billing, and frankly neither are the QBs or RB (aside from Marhsawn wk 1). 

 

I currently have the #1 waiver priority, do I use it to grab Bernard Pierce or Knile Davis?

Pierce is trash, I'd scoop up Knile.

Yeah Im trying pick up Knile too, but mainly because I have Charles... be prepared for Kniles to potentially be a nonfactor when Charles returns

 

Charles is a constant injury and re-injury risk.  I'd keep Knile around for a few weeks just in case.  Charles' scared me enough to the point where I took Calvin Johnson 5th overall in one league when Charles was just sitting there for me, begging to be taken.

Dilemma at my RB2 spot in my 12-team money league (standard non-PPR scoring, no flex): 

 

Rashad Jennings (vs HOU) or Joique Bell (vs GB)?

 

Jennings is the consistent plodder type guaranteed 20+ touches, but has a less favorable matchup than Joique (16 touches each of the last 2 weeks).  What say you all?

Bell.

 

I just think there will be far more scoring opportunities vs. GB. Despite the fact we couldn't run vs. them, their run D is typically bad.

Yeah, I'm thinking that's the right call too.  Just can't trust the Giant offense at all right now.

Only hoping for RB2 numbers from him for the next 2 weeks, tbh.

 

By then, Ben Tate should be back and I should have nabbed someone else to plug in as well. 

 

Look at this list of WRs that are killing me: Torrey Smith, Vincent Jackson, Terrance Williams, Sammy Watkins, Boldin

 

Epic levels of underachievement.

Don't take fantasy football advice from the abominable snowman.

Houston's defense has the worst rush DVOA in the league and Jennings is getting more touches than all but a handful of backs. This isn't even close.

True, but Green Bay is 30th in rush DVOA and Bell is the more talented runner.  Jennings has out-touched him 42-32 but I think Bell gets about the same # as Jennings this week.

 

It's a coin flip for me at this point.

Jennings. Bell has proven himself to be the best RB im the Lions backfield, but he hasnt taken Bush completely out. Bush has the potential to vulture TDs which is an unnecessary risk. Jennings is a solid play and hopefully you can get TDs from the Giants when you're playing another team strong mainly in the run with Foster
