2014 Fantasy Football Thread

Recommended Posts

To not mix up the NFL thread with fantasy talk, post all fantasy football comments/questions/complaints here. If you just drafted the most awesome team, brag about it here. If you are pissed at a pothead running back on your team getting suspended, b**** about it here. If you can't seem to answer the question, "Do I start Jay Cutler or Peyton Manning", ask it in this thread.

My first and main draft is on Sunday. Have Marshawn as a 4th round keeper and Jordy Nelson as a 5th round keeper to start it off.

With Sproles in Philly now do you guys think Adrian Peterson or Matt Forte might be a better pick at 1 overall than Shady?

 

 

Norv Turner is the OC in Minny now and he likes throwing the ball to the back so that might make AP even more valuable.

 

(It's a keeper league, and Charles has been kept)

Had a poor 2013 season - my keepers are 9th and 10th round. Cordarrelle Patterson and Andre Ellington. The good news is, I have the 2nd overall pick and at the moment I can choose either Adrian Peterson or Matt Forte in round 1 and Aaron Rodgers in round 2.

 

 

I am in PPR, what sleepers would you all recommend?

How does your keeper league work? Seems odd that Charles could be kept but the other 3 couldn't.

I assume you're talking about your soxtalk league, and that's what my post was about as well. You may be looking at Shady in the first since I'm seriously considering AP or Forte.

 

I think Sproles(and maybe even Barner who the Eagles traded for) is gonna take away a lot of value from McCoy.

My draft is this Saturday and I've done no preparation whatsoever.

I had my auction draft last week (auctions, while awesome, are such a pain in the ass to find a date for).

 

Had excess money so I blocked a threat by grabbing 3 qbs (newton, kaepernick, rgiii). Now in pain with not having a spot to get sleepers.

Looking at the league now, Forte(Fear Boners) and APs(Papabears) teams haven't made their keeper picks yet, so it looks like I might not get to choose from those 2.

 

I had McCoy last year, and with the top overall pick making him my keeper would be silly.

People get their own choices on keepers. They lose the corresponding draft pick (10th round or higher) where their keeper was drafted the year before - and only keep two guys.

 

If the guy was drafted after 10 or undrafted, he's a 10th round keeper.

What happens if teams don't set their keepers? Looks like 5 of the 12 teams have not.

 

On that note I'll call those guys out...

 

Fear Boners

Papabear Pats

Fighting Jack Twists

Will.I.am3

Hostile Takeover

So Zac Stacy didn't start for St. Louis in the last pre-season game...is that troubling? I just drafted Stacy today and I'm already afraid I made the wrong pick.

 

Stacy's been bad in pre-season and Cunningham has been really good.

 

Outside of that, I like my team a lot. I'm in 0.5 PPR with a flex, 12 teams.

 

QB Foles

WR Nelson

WR Crabtree

RB Charles

RB Stacy

TE Olsen

W/R Maclin

DEF Denver

K Walsh

 

Bench: E. Sanders, Ridley, Boldin, McCown, McFadden

 

I really like my depth at WR.

First draft tonight. 10 team PPR. One keeper - mine was Ball in the 5th.

 

QB T. Brady

RB L. McCoy

RB M. Ball

WR A. Brown

WR P. Garcon

Flex M. Crabtree

TE J. Reed

 

Bench:

 

RB: P. Thomas, A. Williams, D. Brown, L. Blount

WR: K. Wright, J. Gordon, A. Hawkins

 

Gordon in the 10th, worth a flier as a WR5 who has top 5 potential if he plays at all.

Does anyone have a favorite site for up-to-date depth charts?

 

I usually don't pay too much attention, and just follow the buzz, but Ourlads seemingly stays up to date on things.

 

 

As for Stacy....IMO, he's the most overrated RB in the league. Averaged just 3.9 YPC last year(31st in the league) and his numbers only looked good because the Rams QB Kellen Clemons and they were "forced" to run the ball a ton. Stacy was 11th in the league in carries despite only being the starter for 12 games(Only 4 carries before he started starting)....I can't imagine that volume of carries continues with Cunningham and 3rd round pick Tre Mason around as well.

Would you do a Stacy/Maclin for Fitzgerald/Vereen swap?

How dare you draft Brady again.

I hope he's taken when my turn comes around. Too tempting again.

That's a tough one. If Ridley continues to have fumblitis and Vereen takes the majority of the carries it's a no brainer. I think I'd do it in a PPR league but I'd be real hesitant about it.

Bradford is hurt again...so they may run the ball a lot this year as well.

I hear ya. He's probably like 8th or 9th on my qb list so I'm hoping to avoid him.
