Work $ league: 12-team PPR

QB: Tyrod Taylor
RB: C.J. Anderson
RB: Ryan Mathews
WR: Dez Bryant
WR: T.Y. Hilton
TE: Rob Gronkowski
Flex: Michael Floyd
K: A White Guy
Def: Vikings

Bench: Andy Dalton, Jordan Matthews, Tyler Lockett, Justin Forsett, Devontae Booker, Christine Michael, Dwayne Allen

Evaluation: Not thrilled about my QBs (RGIII, Tannehill, Prescot all available), or RBs, but the good WRs kept falling and I had to jump on board. I feel pretty good about my TE (obviously) and WRs. I feel like my bench is pretty deep with some high-potential guys. Overall I'm not thrilled but it could be worse. We'll see what happens with Mathews and Anderson.

Since its PPR your strategy makes sense. I'm a bigger fan of Dalton than most and think he'll be your starter most weeks. RBs could use upgrade but that's tough in a 12 man.

Did Elliot fall now that Romo is injured?

No. Why would Elliot fall? If anything he'll probably get even more work. Unless you meant Dez?

No I meant Elliot, without Romo I think the defenses can key on him even more. Plus he's ranked awfully high for someone whose unproven. Don't get me wrong, I think he's going to do well but some of the guys he's ahead of... Yeah I don't know I pull the trigger on him in the 1st.

10-team 1/2 PPR league. It's a keeper league so I got to keep L. Bell (5th rd), D Hopkins (15th rd), and D. Freeman (17th rd). Am I blinded because it's my team or is this team amazing?

QB - Eli Manning
RB - L. Bell
RB - D. Freeman
WR - D. Hopkins
WR - B. Marshall
TE - J. Witten
FLEX - L. Mccoy

I agree with your evaluation other than your take on your QBs. I think Taylor is solid and if he gets hurt you have Dalton who IMO is solid also. Both are going to get you solid points week in week out. I think the RBs could end up working out. I don't know why but I'm high on Forsett having a good year this year so it could end up well if I'm right haha.

Yup looks good although starting off with Bell and D. Freeman helps a ton! Sounds like you had a great draft last year. I think Baldwin and Crabtree will have a good year.

10 team standard

QB- Blake Bortles
WR- Dez Bryant
WR- Keenan Allen
WR- Donte Moncrief
RB- Ezikiel Elliott
RB- Devonta Freemon
TE- Coby Fleener
K- Chandler Catanzaro
DEF- Kansas City

Bench
QB- Phillip Rivers
WR- Josh Gordon
WR- Tavon Auston
RB- Melvin Gordon
TE- Dwayne Allen
DEF- Pittsburgh

Wasn't happy taking Cowboy WR / RB. But BPA was in play. I might try to unload Dez for Allen Robinson and have two QB WR combos, which I love. Might wait, and hope Dak Prescot plays well week 1.

Stacked. You just won your league.

Okay heres my 12 team $100 buy in. Yahoo ranked me as draft winner with an A grade.

QB- Blake Bortles
WR- Antonio Brown
WR- Amari Cooper
WR- Donte Moncreif
RB- LeSean McCoy
RB- Melvin Gordon
TE- Martellus Bennett
K- Chandler Catanzaro
DEF- Vikings

Bench

QB- Matthew Stafford
WR- John Brown
WR- Laquon Treadwell
RB- Arian Foster
TE- Eric Ebron
DEF- Cincinnati

I was shocked in such a savvy league, John Brown lasted until the 8th round, 3 rounds after his teammate Michael Floyd. Or that I snatched TE Bennett in round 11.

Thats pretty strong, drop Forsett for Tevin Coleman, word is they want Coleman to have the job in Atlanta.

Dez might be a target monster this year, as Dak may lock onto him. Not a fan of TY in ppr, rather have Moncrief. Not a bad team tho, Tyrod is Cam Newton lite. Is McKinnon available? If so dump Forsett for him. Bradford new to the offense, and a bad line, might lend itself to quick passes to RBs in certain games.

My plan was to draft Coleman in the 14th round but he was taken about 2 spots before my pick. I still feel like I'm deep enough if someone gets injured or Coleman starts taking over to be able to fill in and be a strong team.

Man that's a really good draft. I'm not 100% sold on M. Gordon so the RB's may be a little weak IMO, but if he pans out you could be unstoppable.

If Gordon doesn't pan out, Foster was named the starter in Miami.

If Gordon doesn't pan out, Foster was named the starter in Miami.

With your WR core and RBs you should be a playoff team barring injuries. Not a big fan of what you did at other positions though.

At QB I'm fine with Stafford if you got him late enough, but Bortles is due for some regression due to the Jaguars having a better running game and defense. He fed in garbage time last year. You could've just rolled with Stafford and then picked a QB off waivers if he has a tough matchup.

You also shouldnt need more than one defense or TE for the same reason. Would've been better off using those three roster spots on a few high upside flyers. If they didn't pan out you can always drop them.

Also there was a reason both John Brown and Martellus Bennett were available when they were. The Cardinals have too many other mouths to feed on offense so John Brown will have a few big weeks but will be very inconsistent. Hopefully his big weeks are on the weeks where you need him for a bye week fill in. Also TE is so deep this year and I think there are plenty of options at TE better than Martellus. Just have trouble buying into him because he's a number 2 TE, He still will be on the field a good amount, but I'd rather have a guy like Jared Cook who I know is gonna be on the field the majority of the time.

Not surprised your Yahoo draft grade was an A because you probably got guys like Bennett, Brown, and Bottles much lower than they were ranked, but that's just because they are overranked on Yahoo. I'd give you a B- just because those starting WRs and McCoy together is a really good core in a 12 man league.

Totally reviewed someone else's team and quoted your post, so I had to edit my post... It was a long labor day weekend.

I really like your team, especially your strategy late in the draft. You got some high upside guys and if any of them pan out your depth will be solid. Agree with most of the previous asessments, but I actually like your QB situation. Dalton is really underrated, he was one of the top QBs until he got hurt last year.

Post Re: Rate my team 2016!
And here's my big money league that just finished drafting. I'm pretty happy with it overall. 10-team PPR.

QB: Eli Manning
RB: Thomas Rawls
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: OBJ
WR: Hopkins
RB/WR: Keenan Allen
TE: Ertz
D: Texans
K: Santos

Bench: Dalton, Spencer Ware, Moncrief, Michael Floyd, Eifert, Woodhead, Sims, Booker, Forsett.

I just missed out on Christine Michael and Mckinnon, so I was pretty peeved about that. And I got sniped with Rivers taken just before my pick but I still got Eli. Not thrilled with him but he can produce weekly QB1 numbers with regularity. I'm also OK with Dalton late as a backup. I was weakest at RB, so I loaded up on some guys with upside. Only problem there is both of my starters have a week 5 bye. That might hurt. I'm betting pretty heavily on Ertz, who did well at the end of last season and whom I hope Wentz locks on a lot as a rookie. Being PPR, I feel pretty great with my WRs, though, and if needed I might be able to flip one or two.

My first auction style fantasy draft. I thought some of the big names went for way too much so I didn't pull the trigger, I also tried to bid guys up, which worked for the most part. Still, I didn't have enough money at the end and missed out on some cheap pickups. 14-team standard scoring.

QB: Andrew Luck
RB: Devonta Freeman
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Torrey Smith
WR: Tyler Locket
TE: Julius Thomas
Flex: Jonathan Stewart
D: Vikings
K: McManus

Bench: Roethlisberger, Kevin White, Tim Hightower, Tevin Coleman, Marcus Wheaton, Packers D

Hopefully Kevin White lives up to his 1st round pick. I'm debating if I should keep Hightower. I wanted Blount or Terrance West but was outbid due to lack of funds.

Holy crap, your WRs are gonna rake in ppr. I'm guessing you went WR 1,2,3?

Must be rookie auction mistake. I have never tried auction. WRs are iffy, butyour RBs could pick up slack. Having Luck wont hurt, thats for sure. Good luck.

Yeah I didn't have much of a strategy other than to try and get some moderately priced guys (~$30, our total allotment was $200) rather than drop $60-$70 on one big superstar. That, and I was trying to bid people up on guys I didn't want. What I didn't realize is how many guys are left at the end that you can get for under $5.

It's actually now my preferred draft method as it's totally fair but there's definitely a lot more strategy that goes into it.

K: McManus

Bench: Roethlisberger, Kevin White, Tim Hightower, Tevin Coleman, Marcus Wheaton, Packers D

Hopefully Kevin White lives up to his 1st round pick. I'm debating if I should keep Hightower. I wanted Blount or Terrance West but was outbid due to lack of funds.


Must be rookie auction mistake. I have never tried auction. WRs are iffy, butyour RBs could pick up slack. Having Luck wont hurt, thats for sure. Good luck.


Yeah I didn't have much of a strategy other than to try and get some moderately priced guys (~$30, our total allotment was $200) rather than drop $60-$70 on one big superstar. That, and I was trying to bid people up on guys I didn't want. What I didn't realize is how many guys are left at the end that you can get for under $5.

It's actually now my preferred draft method as it's totally fair but there's definitely a lot more strategy that goes into it.

I wouldn't worry about your WRs being weak considering its standard scoring. Also in a 14 team league it is much more difficult to get high end talent, especially for a reasonable price in an auction draft. If guys like Stewart, Charles, and Luck pan out you should have a real good team.
