My first year playing fantasy, in a 12 team league on Yahoo, the owner set it up for the computer to do the draft, but I can still pick up free agents or trade with other players. What do you guys think of my lineup for week one?


QB Ben Roethlisberger Pit
WR Amari Cooper Oak
WR Vincent Jackson TB
RB Matt Forte Chi
TE Rob Gronkowski NE
W/R Frank Gore Ind


Kickers
Adam Vinatieri Ind - K

Defense/Special Teams
Kansas City KC - DEF


Bench
BN Julian Edelman NE - WR
BN Philip Rivers SD - QB
BN Roddy White Atl - WR
BN Duke Johnson Jr. Cle - RB
BN Richard Rodgers GB - TE
BN Greg Zuerlein StL - K
BN Detroit Det - DEF

You may want to change V Jax for Edelman but that's a close one.

Other than that, I'd only change your Indy players because they're agains the Bills! However that's your best chance for week 1! Good luck

Hopefully Edelman is a better player than car salesman...

Your league format is unorthodox. You only start 1 RB? Weird.

Watch the WW, that second kicker is useless along with Rodgers at TE- would be my first two cuts...

I think your starters are solid but you need to find RB depth.

Pro's

Big Ben

Gronk

Edleman

 

Con's

Aging backs in new offenses

Lack of real decent receivers except for Edleman

 

Outlook

In the end the lack of receiver depth and a RB injury will doom this team. My hope is that Gronk makes up for the receiver deficiency. Maybe Cooper has a good year and Duke Johnson becomes something. With a bit of luck maybe you can quote my post and point out how wrong I was!

This. Strange active/bench ratio. Still though, you have solid players. As someone else already said, my concern is carrying a second kicker and DEF. I'm hugely biased bc my strategy is to usually stream those two positions, so I only ever carry one of each, and they get flipped almost every week. I'd rather play the favourable match up then look for consistency/depth week-to week at K/DEF. Doing so allows me to have depth at positions where I feel I really need it (WR/RB/TE.) Just my two cents :)

Well I made the playoffs, actually finished 1st in my league. Was rolling over everyone pretty easily till the Gronk and Edelman injuries, but still finished 9-3. So here's my current lineup, I did make some changes during the season...

QB Russell Wilson Sea - QB
WR Danny Amendola NE - WR
WR Jeremy Maclin KC - WR
RB Denard Robinson Jax - RB
TE Rob Gronkowski NE - TE
W/R Amari Cooper Oak - WR
K Graham Gano Car - K
DEF Denver Den - DEF


BN Shaun Draughn SF - RB
BN Scott Chandler NE - TE
BN Philip Rivers SD - QB
BN Charcandrick West KC - RB
BN DeSean Jackson Was - WR
BN Charles Sims TB - RB
BN Baltimore Bal - DEF

My next opponent I've beat twice this season, and am currently projected to win again, this is their current roster....

QB Cam Newton Car - QB
WR Sammy Watkins Buf - WR
WR A.J. Green Cin - WR
RB Jonathan Stewart Car - RB
TE Coby Fleener Ind - TE
W/R David Johnson Ari - RB
K Blair Walsh Min - K
DEF St. Louis StL - DEF


BN Brandin Cooks NO - WR
BN Stevie Johnson SD - WR
BN Dez Bryant Dal - WR
BN Derek Carr Oak - QB
BN Tim Hightower NO - RB
BN Doug Baldwin Sea - WR
BN Green Bay GB - DEF

Anything you see that I should be wary of, or any changes that I may want to consider?

Great lineup!

 

 

It may be tough for you this week!

 

What kind of scoring system is your league?

Isn't Jonathan Stewart hurt?   I don't think he's playing this week which would be a nice break for you.  You should probably grab his backup on waivers to block your opponent.

Sigh. it looked good in Week 15 that I could get by my opponent but they played a couple players that just exploded for points. Then week 16, same thing, ended up 4th overall, out of the money. But I'll still play next year I think.

Out of my 5 leagues, I think this is the one I am most proud of.

 

QB Bortles

RB Doug Martin

RB Matt Forte

WR Antonio Brown

WR Mohamed Sanu

TE Martellus Bennett

FLEX Kelvin Benjamin

D Jets

K Carpenter

 

Bench

Jamaal Charles

Tyler Eifert

Justin Forsett

Matt Ryan

Kamar Aiken

 

On another note: Forsett went undrafted as a result of his Raven release, but he resigned today. Do I drop Hogan, or Sproles to pick him up in another league?

Hogan is a wildcard..... I don't look for him to be Edelman or anything... either wouldn't hurt you
