I just wanted a reality check from someone.

I'm just concerned because I've read that clavicles can take 12 weeks to heal, how do these guys come up with 4-6 weeks?

You have the needed depth at RB cause McFadden first round is a hell of a gamble. Cook is a nice sleeper.

I always like drafting at the end of the round

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

How do most of your leagues do scoring? This year I dropped TDs to 4 points because I was getting annoyed at TD vultures. I added bonuses for topping 100, 150 and 200 yards for RB/WR and for throwing certain numbers for QBs as well. This way you get rewarded for great performances versus people like Jacobs who used to have 5 yards and 3 TDs.

mathews is soooo damn frustrating. i drafted him as a rookie and traded him cause he's always hurt and tolbert kept taking the goaline carries. now the job's his and he gets hurt again!!!!!!

I'm biased here but you can't go wrong w/ Brady as I've now kept him in my league for 10 years. One thing I like about NE is they play their starters til week 16. Not only that but no matter what the score is, they keep running their offense.

Keep Antonio Brown, drop Mendenhall, he's done.

I wouldnt have changed it, different lil different strategy keeps it fresh. TD to 3 or 4 point only for QBs when throwing the ball. Every person who scores should get 6 imo.

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

We dropped our TD passing points to 4 instead of 6 a few years ago, to lessen the impact of the stud QBs, but every other TD is 6 points. But I'm finding that 4 points for passing TDs is more common than being the exception anymore.

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

Im thinking about moving the metrics of our pay league. Extra point: 5 points, field goals over 40 yards: 10 point, under 40 yards: 7 points

Its time Rob Bironas is taken first overall in a fantasy draft...where stud Kickers rule the league

LOL Chico, kicker is my last pick every year, because there is a high probability that I will be dropping him anyway for another kicker by Week 2. Kickers=lottery ticket, a total crap shoot. Basically find a team that can move the ball, BUT not score TDs and you have found a team with your kicker. Many FGs.
