Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

i make my own cheat sheet based on the results from the previous year. I pull the data from yahoo within my league so my scoring totals are accurate. Then i add in rookies, and i tweak the depth chart. then sort by team, add in bye weeks and a comment column. It's already done minus the depth of the players, which is fluid. comments i add based on the people i follow around the country via twitter. bleacher report had a great article a few days ago on the 30 'must follow' football personalities.

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

If you had to pick a redskins RB as a starter, who would you take?

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

Right now you'd have to go with Royster. TH still sitting out, Helu nursing an achilles injury... but I'd probably avoid taking any of the Skins backs.

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

Since T. Davis, you should never draft a Shanahan back. They are picked up in free agency to fill in for bye weeks. Too inconsistent.

I will heartily endorse this even though I hate telling anyone that. I had hoped it was just a small pub that no one used.

I tend to think their projections and player rankings are the best out there year in and year out.

I use my own projections but I do it by position and then put the names in. I use FFI for the rankings.

Re: Fantasy Football 2012 Thread

I love my WR's but hate my RB's lol.

WR: C. Johnson, W. Welker, Jordy Nelson (Reserves nothing to write home about: L. Robinson, Oakland's third string - whatever his name is lol).

RB's: Marshawn Lynch, Stevan Ridley & Pierre Thomas (Reserve: S. Vereen)

TE: Gates, QB: Ryan, with Fitzpatrick in reserve, DEF: Chicago, K: Hansen

Wanted Bradshaw or Gore as my 2nd back but both stolen either the pick ahead of me (Bradshaw) or 2 picks ahead (Gore). Instead of Bradshaw I took Nelson (4th Round) but should have grabbed Gore, even if Nelson had been gone by my next pick. In the 5th, with Gore gone, I picked Gates. Would have felt better with Gore, Nelson/Bowe (who was still on the Board at my 5th pick so would have gotten either Bowe or Nelson as a 3rd WR). Gore/Bowe > Nelson/Gates.

Those two rounds were my biggest screw-up and really puts me in a hole. Gates is nice, but he will put up middle of the pack numbers and my 2nd back probably won't even do that. Grrrrr.

I think this is Ryan's break out year - two great wide outs, solid TE and an aging runner mean more reliance on his arm. Doubt he will put up Rodgers numbers, but betting he will be in the neighborhood.

Joe your WRs are obviously strong and I don't know if you start 2WR and have a Flex or not, but with your team I would start all 3 WR using one in the flex. You are only weak at one position and that's RB and its better to be weak at one than several. Just monitor the league and look for waiver guys to fill in your RB2 position. Did Donald Brown get drafted? or Ronnie Brown? You might reach deep now for some week 1 starters to get off the waiver wire and then go from there. Whom ever drafted Ryan Mathews won't be using him for a few weeks so Ronnie Brown might get ou thru a few games until you can see how things develop.

Depending on the scoring, Megatron can carry your team...and if Peyton Manning returns to his old self. I had the law firm either last year or the year before, he wasn't that great. I thought Lynch was supposed to be good though? Stevie Johnson is a decent option, he's good for a couple of 100-yd games.
