Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

OK, Guys my third and final team drafts tonight (morning for me). And it is a wierd line-up format. Start 1 QB, Flex a QB/RB/WR, 1 RBs, Flex 1 RB/WR, 2 WRs, Flex WR/TE, 1 TE, 1 D and 1 K (11 Starters). My question is should I go QB heavy early or just get the lower tier while stocking up on the RB and WR stars. I have pick 1.3 and am thinking QB but could just get the a Tier 1 RBs and WRs in the first three rounds and suck up lower tier QBs later. Advice welcome.

In a non PPR League I'd lean Benjarvus (Opposite for PPR leagues).

Depends on how the points in the league are set up. If the point values favor the QB and you have more than one QB spot in your starting line up, I've known a lot of guys that go QB, QB with the first two picks if they are available b/c they will score you waaaay more points than even a top tier RB if the point system is right.

That being said, if the points don't favor QBs, OR, if other people in your league snatch them up quick, there's no point going after mediocre QB's when top tier RBs are still on the board. I've done very well this year getting a top tier RB, then top tier WR, then one of the last QB's near the top of the pack (Brees, Ryan, Freeman) and going from there.

There's a million ways to skin a cat my friend. A lot of it is you being able to play off the other people in your league and how they draft. Good luck.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Earlier,I mentioned the sucky WRs I have on one of my teams. I started Nelson, he panned out, the other guy is Collie. Do you all think I should stick with Collie over Armstrong, Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal (note I'm starting Gates which is why I'm staying away from Floyd). BTW FYI the rest of my Starters are, QB Rivers, RBs Foster, Gore, Flex Fred Jackson, Gates, Gano and the Skins.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

I am regretting not drafting Skins D with my last pick.
Also Armstrong and Gaffney are free agents in most leagues. Who is the better pick up?

Well Gaffney will be the starter and will get more looks and touches. But AA is always capable of pulling down a couple of big ones in one game.

I don't necessarily know where Cobb is going to get his catches in that offense, but I think he's got a ton more upside than Ochocinco.

You're going to have to wait out Knox and Brown because neither are starters at this point. But both are better than starters on their rosters. It's going to take some time.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Ok so this might be a dumb ass question but I'll throw it out there. Who would you start this week. Brady? Or Grossman? SD played New England tough last year and Grossman is facing a defense that gave up 400 to a rookie. I'm thinking about benching Brady. Am I that stupid????

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

Grossman has the better matchup.

It's tough to bench Brady, but he's got the tougher opponent and he's working on a short week.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

so, anyone have an opinion of starting Jahvid Best over Jamaal Charles? I know on the face of it Charles is better, but he has to go against Detroit's line, vs Best against KC's.

Re: 2011 Fantasy Football Thread

I wouldnt drop Ochocinco. Its a toss up between Knox or Brown...but I would wait a week on Cobb, wouldnt get him yet.
