The best part about fantasy football, outside of winning money, is having a rooting interest in almost every game.

 

Im guessing your league settings, but heres what I would do

 

QB: Matthew Stafford

RB: Latavius Murray

RB: Melvin Gordon

WR: DeAndre Hopkins

WR: Keenan Allen

TE: Rob Gronkowski

Flex: Eric Decker

K: Cairo Santos

DEF: Seattle

 

Bench: Doug Baldwin, Sea WR

Bench: Tom Brady, NE QB

Bench: Giovani Bernard, Cin RB

Bench: Allen Hurns, Jax WR

Bench: Isaiah Crowell, Cle RB

Bench: Bilal Powell, NYJ RB

Bench: Dorial Green-Beckham, Phi WR

 

Ideally, you want Latavius Murray as your RB2.. I would try to use Doug Baldwin and Allen Hurns to get Doug Martin..If he wants Keenan Allen, it needs to be for David Johnson.. Id try Keenan Allen and Doug Baldwin for David Johnson in that case.. this way, you get a high end RB1 and move Murray to RB 2, Decker can slot in just fine as your WR2 and then you can play matchups for your flex.

 

If Spencer Ware is a free agent in your league, drop Powell and pick him up.

 

Wow that's really receiver heavy for a non-PPR league. I would trade Allen immediately for an RB. In standard, Allen for Martin is pretty damn fair. Not so much in PPR.

12 Team 0.5 PPR League

 

QB Cam Newton (5th)

RB Todd Gurley (1st)

RB C.J. Anderson (3rd)

WR Allen Robinson (2nd)

WR T.Y. Hilton (4th)

WR Michael Floyd (6th)

FL Rashad Jennings (7th)

FL Stefon Diggs (8th)

TE Zac Miller (13th)

DEF Broncos (12th)

 

BE Christine Michael (9th)

BE Torrey Smith (10th)

BE Tajae Sharpe (11th)

BE Darren Sproles (14th)

BE Matthew Stafford (15th)

 

Thoughts? Obviously TE is a huge concern and will be a focus area on the waiver wire. I also have some worries about my WR3 & WR4 (Floyd & Diggs), but don't think either was a huge reach where selected and both have significant upside. And I was ecstatic to get Michael in the 9th & Sharpe in the 11th, two guys I had targeted in the 9 to 11 range.

Haha I grabbed Josh Gordon too. I hate my team though. 10 team league, PPR. I picked last as well. :unsure:

 

QB - Aaron Rodgers

WR - A.J. Green

WR - Julian Edelman

WR - Allen Hurns

RB - Devonta Freeman

RB - DeAngelo Williams

TE - Rob Gronkowski

W/R/T - Matt Forte

K - Justin Tucker

DEF - Cincinnati

 

Bench

RB - Jeremy Hill

RB - Derrick Henry

RB - T.J. Yeldon

WR - Josh Gordon

WR - Stefon Diggs

TE - Dwayne Allen

 

When Le'Veon Bell comes back, I'm screwed. I hope Hill bounces back.

 

I like your squad SoxAce,I think you have a real nice starting lineup once Bell comes back because you can slot Forte in RB2 and put in Allen in your Flex, I think he's going to be a goal line contributor which is great.

Althought I'm not too high on your RB depth, but we'll see what surprises come out on the waver wire. Diggs is a real hit/miss. He had a nice 3 game stretch last year but he cooled down late last year and Hill/Bradford doesn't scream exciting so we'll have to see if you can pick up some surprises the first couple weeks to stash.

Top heavy squad, I think Torrey Smith might end up being a better FL option than Diggs, since I have no confidence in Hill to have long,sustained drives to get Diggs the ball. Zac Miller isn't ideal but if the Bears system doesn't change substantially from last year I see no reason he won't be targeted a good amount, as long as he stays healthy I think you'll be ok there. Jennings is supposed to get more goal line carriers this year but I felt like I read that last year so he's a guy I wouldn't start. I think Michael should start with Rawls being set to RB2 on Seattle's depth chart.

It is NOT PPR. Scoring is the same for both positions, except RBs get an extra point for 200+ yard games.

 

If it's not PPR then that is a fair trade.

12 Team PPR League

 

QB-Ben Roth

RB-Lamar Miller

RB-Matt Forte

WR-Dez Bryant

WR-Keenan Allen

TE-Delanie Walker

FLEX-Danny Woodhead

DEF-Broncos

K-Stephen Gostkowski

 

Bench:

QB-Andy Dalton

WR-Michael Sanu

WR-Michael Thomas

WR-Markus Wheaton

RB-Theo Riddick

RB-Jerick McKinnon

TE-Jordan Cameron

 

I really feel like my Flex spot is my weakest right now but I'm not sure who will emerge as my top FLEX candidate from what I have, hopefully I fine a QB hungry team that I can dangle Dalton out too if he continues playing the way he did last year.

 

EDIT: Oh and any feedback would be welcome!

 

I'm really leaning towards starting Wheaton over Woodhead in the Flex. I think him being the #2 receiver in Pitt now will help me and Woodhead is facing a tough D in KC. Any thoughts guys?

KC doesn't play the run well so Woodhead will be fine. Rivers will dump off to him a lot. Houston is out, Mauga is out and Hali will be limited. That's 3 of their 4 starting LBs

Not sure how much I trust Carroll saying Michael will be starting over Rawls.

I'm just hesitant to play him since last year Woodhead only had 1 pt against KC defense. I read somewhere they are good against receiving RBs so I think I'll opt to play Wheaton.

Had my 12 team .5 ppr league draft last night. It's a tiered keeper league where you have to keep 4 guys. My keepers were Gronk, Brees, Odell and Jordy. I ended up getting the 5th pick and since it's a keeper there were just no rb's worth grabbing early so I basically just said f*** it:

 

Brees

Langford

Abdullah

Beckham jr

Jordy

Gronk

Amari Cooper

Crosby

Defense will be by committee but going Eagles this week

 

Meh.

 

EDIT: And illinlaw's post reminded me that I did nab Deangelo Williams so he'll be starting for me until Bell comes back.

Two very different roster decisions in two leagues - both are 12 team leagues, neither are PPR:

 

The first is my main league. It's a keeper league with rampant trading. I kept Watkins, Cooper, and Bell and lucked into Antonio Brown. Because of the keeper league, RBs were very sparse. I have Deangelo Williams, so I'm covered through Bell's suspension, but my options for the 2nd RB spot are:

 

Forsett

Yeldon

Duke Johnson

 

I'm leaning toward Forsett because he's probably the starter there - at least until Dixon gets back. Duke Johnson has less value since it's not a PPR league. I don't have any idea as to how the Jags backfield shakes out, but sounds like Ivory is going to get the first crack at carries. Not feeling great about the RB situation there though.

 

The second league, I have to pick two to start out of:

 

Lamar Miller

David Johnson

Deangelo Williams

 

I kind of feel like this one is a close your eyes and pick 2 type of decision...

Yeah, injuries forced Woodhead into a major role for me last year in my main league. He doesn't get enough carries to worry about the Chiefs' run defense. It's kind of hit or miss whether Rivers dinks and dumps his way downfield.

Definitely Forsett until he gives you a reason to panic. The other 2 won't see the field all that much.

 

2nd league you're golden at RB
