i agree with cutler and warner being pretty good options as well, but i might have tried to get brees, romo, palmer maybe? but you're right, if you play the matchups according, you should be good. ;-D

QB - Cutler, Warner
RB - LT2, Jacobs, Perry, Stewart
WR - Edwards, SSmith, Marshall, Ocho Cinco, Burleson, Morgan
TE - Crumpler
K - Rackers
DEF/ST - Seattle

I'm trying to move Jacobs and a WR for a better RB, but other than that I'm quite happy. A bit WR heavy but happy.


Yeah if you can move Jacobs/WR for an upgrade at RB then you'd be set. I'm not sold on Jacbos staying healthy all season. For a huge guy he is extremely brittle.

Love Cutler this year and Burleson as well. Perry and Stewart are interesting.

Thanks. :-D

I actually like the guys who cross over to this side like Knapp, Deeray, Duran, yourself, etc but football is so boring to talk about.

BronXBombers51 wrote:Nice team. Gotta love Westy in a PPR league. I just missed out on him in mine and got Addai instead. No glaring weaknesses on that team anywhere. If Marvin bounces back then you're going to be tough to beat I think.

Here's mine in case anyone is interested (10 teams, .5 PPR, starters marked with *):
QB- Hasselbeck*, Bulger
WR- S. Smith*, Holmes*, Cotchery*, A. Gonzalez
RB- Addai*, Johnson*, Jacobs*, Rice, J. Jones, Forte, Norwood, Booker
TE- Heap*
K- Rackers*
DEF- Seattle*


Bronx, I actually have a somewhat similar team to you, only mine isn't as deep since it's a 14 teamer. I didn't really do much research this year, probably only a few days worth. I pretty much used two threads on the light side to help with my preparation; one was a 'draft targets' thread and the other was 'who has impressed you this preseason'. I definitely have a few too many rookies, but I prefer to pick high upside guys in the later rounds than the more proven, unspectacular vets.

14 Team league, 20yds/pt passing, 10yds/pt rush&rec, 0.5 pts/catch, 20yds/pt ret, 6 for all TDs.

QB Brett Favre (NYJ - QB) - Round 9, Pick 116
WR Marques Colston (NO - WR) Round 3, Pick 32
WR Santonio Holmes (Pit - WR) Round 4, Pick 53
WR Jerricho Cotchery (NYJ - WR) Round 5, Pick 60
RB Joseph Addai (Ind - RB) - Round 1, Pick 4
RB Reggie Bush (NO - RB) - Round 2, pick 25
TE Tony Scheffler (Den - TE) - Round 11, Pick 144
W/R Devin Hester (Chi - WR) - Round 8, Pick 109
K Matt Stover (Bal - K) - Last pick
DEF Philadelphia (Phi - DEF) 2nd to last pick

BN Felix Jones - Round 6, Pick 81
BN Chris Johnson (Ten - RB) Round 7, pick 88
BN Matt Schaub (Hou - QB) - Round 10, Pick 137
BN Ray Rice (Bal - RB) - Round 12, Pick 165
BN Steve Slaton (Hou - RB) - Round 13, Pick 172
BN DeSean Jackson (Phi - WR) - Round 14, Pick 193

It's so weird, I say the same thing about baseball. At least we can agree that talking hockey is like nails on a chalkboard right? :-D

Believe it or not but hockey used to be my best sport. I think I won an ESPN league like 6 years in a row or something. It is all about loading up on stud defenses and picking the right goalies. Offense is replenished every year.
