Nice team. I have my draft next Sunday and will be picking 7th. I'm hoping for a Evans/Elliott combo myself

Your RBs scare the crap out of me. You should really handcuff Hunt with Ware too.


16 Team, .5 PPR

QB Drew Brees, NO QB
RB David Johnson, Ari RB
RB Joe Mixon, Cin RB
WR Brandin Cooks, NE WR
WR Mike Wallace, Bal WR
TE Jack Doyle, Ind TE
FLEX Thomas Rawls, Sea RB  Q
D/ST Buccaneers D/ST D/ST
K Nick Novak, Hou K


Bench Doug Martin, TB RB  SSPD
Bench Kareem Hunt, KC RB
Bench Jamaal Charles, Den RB  Q
Bench John Ross, Cin WR
Bench Jonathan Williams, Buf RB

A little weak on WR and going in heavy on Brees/Doyle healthwise. I figure one of my RBs stashed could get me great trade value a few weaks in that I could then swap for a better player at the WR position.

Kind of hard to tell without seeing what you have to start.
If you have a flex, those TEs will come in handy.
Elliot scares me. I have a feeling due to his appeal, he might miss games later in the season. I think Ware and Gurley are underrated.
I'm guessing you probably took Carr and Rudolph a little too early.

Overall, I think if two of your RBs work out and Allen stays healthy, you could make the playoffs.

I love some of these picks, especially Rawls and Martin. And people don't realize how consistent Mike Wallace has been throughout his career. He's a safe bet to finish in the top 30.
Let's say Martin and Rawls work out, and you find a better TE at some point (I don't like Doyle), this team has a chance to go really far. Can't believe this is a 16-teamer.

Drafted this past weekend in my main league. $450 for first place. It's a 2 QB, PPR league.

QB Aaron Rodgers
QB Dak Prescott
WR TY Hilton
WR Emmanuel Sanders
RB Demarco Murray
RB Mark Ingram
TE Cameron Brate
FLEX Willie Snead
FLEX CJ Anderson
BN Joe Flacco
BN John Brown
BN Chris Hogan
BN Doug Martin
BN Derrick Henry

I don't love my receivers but my QBs and RBs are really good, so something was going to suffer. I waited until the 13th round and got my TE, Brate. I love waiting on TE this year. Really happy that I got Henry to go with Murray. I think I'm more excited about my bench WRs than my starters, besides Hilton.

16-team league, 0.5 PPR

QB - Tom Brady
RB - David Johnson (keeper)
WR - Julio Jones
TE - Jimmy Graham
FLEX - DeSean Jackson
FLEX - Donte Moncrief
FLEX - Adrian Peterson
D/ST - Buccaneers
K - Sebastian Janikowski

Bench
Eli Manning
Derrick Henry
Wendell Smallwood
Marvin Jones
Robert Woods
Travis Benjamin
Evan Engram


Best thing I like about my team - the trio of Brady, David Johnson, and Julio Jones.

Worst thing - bench, but in a 16-team league it's very difficult to have a bench that looks formidable, IMO.

I really like your RBs. If Anderson becomes something of a workhorse like he should've been the past few seasons, and if Martin comes up big after he serves his suspension, look out. Henry will already receive quite a few carries, but if Murray goes down, that team feeds off Henry. Great handcuff there.

Even if Anderson, Martin, and Henry are average producers, it will be a very good group.

As for the WRs, since it's PPR I think that gives them much more value. Those are some big-play guys who also get a good amount of looks. Hogan may be a big part of the Patriots' offense this year. I think they are better than you think. Good work.

Indeed. RBs are very nice and in FF they are the cornerstone. And if Murray goes down Henry becomes a bonafide RB1. He may just be the best handcuff in fantasy this year. Maybe that Williams cat in Buffalo comes second.

Yeah, I was drafting along with no intention to handcuff when my pick came up in Round 10 or 11 and Henry was the top ranked player left. It was a no-brainer at that point.

I think Henry starts to eat more carries this year from Murray no matter what.

Nice team indeed. You could roll into the playoffs with

Cousins
Elliott
Martin
OBJ
Benjamin
Eifer
Sanders

If they all pan out, that'd be tough to beat.

If I had to critique, I'm not a believer in Lynch or Bennett this year.

Thanks. I'm a little concerned about Lynch, but I think at the very least he'll be a goal line monster behind that OL.

I actually really like Bennet this year and he's not going very high. While there's a lot of weapons in the GB offense, I don't the Aaron has had a TE as talented as Bennett. I guess we'll see

People feel very one way or the other about Lynch. I'm team stay away. Where he's getting drafted I much rather go with something much more sure. But he totally has potential to be this years Murray and outplay his draft spot or be every years Eddie Lacy.

10 team, 1 keeper, PPR league. I had the 10th pick and elected to keep Evans. We run an additional W/R/T flex position.

QB: Stafford, Manning
RB: Howard, Elliot, Hyde, Henry, Langford
WR: Evans, Jeffery, R. Matthews, Tate
TE: Ertz, Fiedorowicz
K: Boswell
D: Rams, Bucs

I'm banking on my RB depth to provide help for a lacking pair of TEs, and hopefully trade one out later in the season if I lose a WR to injury. Not super excited about my QBs, but to take Stafford with the 100th pick after a long run, and getting Manning right after, I suppose I shouldn't complain to much. Was thinking of taking Brate (still available) but I'm not a big fan of having multiple guys from one team on my roster.

12 Team League, pick #1

QB: Tom Brady,
RB: D. Johnson, K. Hunt, T. West, T. Rawls, J. Hill, D. Foreman
WR: L. Fitzgerald, D. Jackson. J. Maclin, J. Matthews
TE: J. Reed, C. Brate
K: C. Santos
D: Cardinals

I could have done worse I guess. Pretty happy to pick up Brady in the 3rd and having plenty of depth at RB.
Too bad Travis Kelce, Keenan Allen and Pierre Garcon all were picked just before me in various rounds.

Like your TB depth, love your TEs. Don't like your WR much, but there's still a good chance at production there.

Your team is solid as hell. Well done. Also no way I would have passed up Zeke if he fell to me in the 3rd either.
