General Message Board
Not one to brag but I think I may have the best FFB ever following my draft and 3 trades in my 10 team league. Drafted 1. Calvin Johnson (WR) 2. L. Fitzgerald (WR) 3. J. Jones (WR) 4. T. Richardson (RB) 5. M. Ryan (QB) 6. M. Turner (RB) 7. V. Jackson (WR) 8. T. Gonzalez (TE) and so on.
Trade #1 After Week 2: Sent Michael Turner and Danny Amendola (waiver pickup) for Cedric Benson and Michael Crabtree. Don't really like Turner or the number of Falcons I had and had high hopes for Benson (not happy about Amendola but more later)
Trade #2 Week 6: Sent Crabtree off for Chris Johnson. This was when CJ2K was still in a down turn but was great in Week 6 and on.
Found Amendola on the Waiver Wire 2 weeks before his return to action and picked him back up as well as Picking Up Marcel Reese
Trade #3 Week 11 (Deadline) Sent CJ2K, Dalton (QB) and Jacquizz Rogers off for Lesean McCoy and Chicago Bears Def.
I am in 3rd currently with the highest point total and a clear path to 1st place in the next 2 weeks (150+ projections 12, 13). Put up 211 points in week 10, easily won despite 2 points from Ryan in Week 11.
Line Up Going Forward:
WR C. Johnson
WR J. Jones
RB L. McCoy
RB T. Richardson
TE T. Gonzalez
W/T V. Jackson
DEF Chicago Bears
Using Justin Tucker as a servicable Kicker
Thoughts? Can anyone compete?
Not even close to the best team ever, let alone this year. My 10 team Bar league for this year:
2nd overall pick, 1.R.Rice, 2.D.Murray, 3.R.Gronkowski, 4.B.Marshall, 5.J.Charles, 6.S.Smith, 7.D.Martin, 8.J.Freeman, 9.D.Bowe, 10.RGIII, 11.R.Wayne 12.D.Moore 13.D.Brown 14.K.Smith
After week 1, I picked up A.Morris and then traded Kevin Smith(RB), D.Murray(RB), D.Bowe(WR) for R.White(WR), J.Stewart(RB), A.Boldin(WR). Dropped Stewart after week 2 and picked up M.Leshoure
I'm 11-0 right now, 129.54 points more then any other team and clinched #1 overall.
My roster going forward is:
QB RGIII (#2 QB)
RB D. Martin (#1 RB)
WR B.Marshall (#2WR)
WR R.Wayne (#4WR)
TE R.Gronkowski (#1 TE)
W/T/R R.Rice (#4RB)
I've also have 3 RB in the top 20 sitting on my bench
Just need to find a replacement for Gronk now :(
But I'll submit the following for best team ever:
1998 - 12 team league $100/team
QB - B.Favre (#3 QB)
RB - T. Davis (#1 RB)*
RB - F.Taylor^ (#4 RB)
WR - R.Moss^ (#1 WR)
WR - E.Moulds (#4 WR)
WR - R.Smith (#8 WR)*
TE - S.Sharpe (#1 TE)
* Aquired by trading T.Green(#6QB), M.Faulk(#3RB), C.Martin(#7RB), J.Smith(#11WR), T.Brown(#15wr)
Had a great draft that year. 1. M.Faulk(RB) 2. C.Martin(RB) 3. R.Moss^(WR) 4. J.Smith(WR)
5. S.Young(QB) 6.S.Sharpe(TE) 7. F.Taylor^(RB) 8. T.Brown(WR) 9. T.Green(QB)
Started the season 7-0. The owner of T.Davis/R.Smith had no one else on their roster and was 1-6 and getting blown-out every week. Had been trying to get Davis off this guy for a couple weeks and he finally accepted after week 7. Had 1 owner protest the trade because "you can't trade the #1 overall pick in the draft" and felt I was taking advantage of the last place team. Had a couple of other owners object too based on my team being too strong and would breeze to the championship.
Well, the team I traded with went on to win his last 6 games, including giving me my only loss of the year, and made it into the playoffs as the #6 seed. He then upset the #3 seed (the team that thought I was taking advantage of him) before losing to me in the semi-finals.
