First Draft... Scary!

Postby AdmiralTrey » Sun Aug 07, 2011 4:43 pm

So I just completed my one and only early season draft of the year... I decided to go WR early and fill in the rest...
I missed Andre Johnson by one pick. The next time through, after Shonn Greene, Steven Jackson, and Frank Gore were taken in a row, and after I muttered "You may as well go ahead and take Matt f$%^#$% Forte too, a$#%holes." I missed Matt Forte by one pick...

Team:
QB - Matt Schaub
WR - Calvin Johnson
WR - Roddy White
RB - Ahmad Bradshaw
RB - DeAngelo Williams
TE - Kellen Winslow
K - Garrett Hartley
DEF - New Orleans
Bench - Mark Ingram
Bench - Cedric Benson
Bench - Mike Sims-Walker
Bench - Jhavid Best
Bench - Braylon Edwards
Bench - Kyle Orton


I know that this is a risky team, but I figure that between my five RB's, who have all either had great seasons or have the potential for a great season, I ought to be able to get pretty good production out of the position.

So what do you think, Doc? Should I have gone just a little bit safer, or will this risk be rewarded?

A little risk in your RBs, but the upside of Ingram and Best (now with no Leshoure I moved him up in the rankings) helps out a ton. And I agree that with the solid WRs going with so many RBs is a nice move and should work. Overall I like it.

I think WR are more inconsistent than RB. in H2H like football is, you want consistency. I think you will have weeks where you win, but at team with top RBs might do better every week. You do have good RBs but if you have weeks without production from your two WR you will struggle.

Thanks, Doc! Yeah, I'm especially hoping for strong years from Ingram and Best; I'd like to see them being my top RB's by the end of the year, but I feel like DeAngelo Williams ought to have a bounce back year.

And yeah, Bourne, it's definitely a risk, but it's one I'm willing to take. Last year I tried to grab Andre Johnson first in all of my leagues and I drafted Arian Foster in the 9th and 10th rounds thinking he'd be a pretty solid contributor... Obviously I lucked out a bit more than I expected with him, but if I can get 3/4ths of that out of Ingram or Best, I'd be extremely happy.
I'm also relying on playing the RB's that face weak defenses, as well, figuring that at least one of them will be facing a porous line every week.
