  • We're a 4th year 10 team dynasty. We moved to a 6 team playoff this year (we used to be 4). We have pretty normal settings with an extra WR/RB/TE flex spot and 4 IDP positions. QB INTs are -2 (normally -1) and IDP INTs are +2 (normally +3). We do a non-snaking draft based on final standings. The winner gets the 10th pick every round next year and the last place team gets the first pick every round next year. Keepers fill early rounds, so if you keep 10 players your first pick is in the 11th round.

    Here's your roster: 5-4, 5th place
    RG3, Carson Palmer
    Maclin, Cobb, Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts 3, Boykin
    Forte, Foster, Ellington, Rice, West, Bradshaw
    Vernon Davis, Ladarius Green
    St. Louis
    Dontae Johnson, Sheldon Richardson, Taiwan Jones, Terrence Newman

    If you are interested, reply with your email and I'll get you an invite asap.

    Draft result - How'd I do?

    by Lefty Sep 4, 2014 11:28 AM
    Lefty Lefty Sep 4, 2014 12:46 PM Flag

    just wanted to add that I've traditionally finished very poorly in this long running league

  • 8th pick in a 2QB 10 team h2h and 3 idp - LB, DL, DB

    Peyton was #1 pick
    8 Demaryius Thomas - passed on Brees, Megatron, Graham, AJ Green
    13 Montee Ball - Dez was still available here
    28 Matt Ryan - Luck was available
    33 Tony Romo - my plan was to land 2 of these 3 QBs, Luck was my 3rd QB target.
    48 Ryan Mathews - rbs getting thin already
    53 Cordarrelle Patterson
    68 Eric Decker
    73 Emmanuel Sanders
    88 Martellus Bennett
    93 Robert Quinn - sacks worth 4 points, Watt went #82
    108 Joique Bell
    113 Eli Manning - most starting QBs gone after this pick
    128 Toby Gerhart - couldnt not draft him here
    133 Golden Tate
    148 Riley Cooper - already dropped for Phi defense
    153 Denver
    168 Derrick Johnson
    173 Mason Crosby
    188 Antrel Rolle
    193 Alec Ogletree

    I'm not unhappy with my team, just wondering if I should have taken some of the guys I passed on.

  • RB1 - Ball
    RB2 - ??

    Ryan Mathews @ Ari, vs Sea
    Joique Bell vs NYG, @ Car
    Toby Gerhart @ Phi, @ Was
    add FA Bernard Pierce vs Cin, vs Pit

    I dont particularly like Mathews against those defenses, Bell is about the 4th option on the Lions, and Gerhart hasn't proven anything.

    Wayne. Indy will have to keep up with Peyton.

    How would you rank these 4 RB's

    by J Aug 30, 2014 2:04 AM
    Lefty Lefty Aug 30, 2014 4:42 AM Flag

    Jackson - goalline thief
    Rice - I guess
    Tate - powerful runner but bad offense and durability concerns
    Sankey - rookie in questionable offense

  • Philip Rivers, Alex Smith, Russel Wilson.

    It looks like SD wants to run more, Seattle lost Tate, and KC is the Jamaal Charles show.

    Flex Philosophy?

    Lefty Lefty Aug 26, 2014 3:12 AM Flag

    For me, it's next best player based on matchup. Could be a WR this week, RB next week. It's all about the points, dont care who gets them. Whoever projects to get more gets the start.

  • Do the projected rushing numbers for Wilson seem a little low? Only 1.5 rush TDs. Yeah he only had 1 last year, but 3 in the preseason this year. Understandably QB rushing is hit and miss trying to predict, but 1.5 doesn't seem right to me.

    1st ever auction draft results -- good or bad?

    by Lefty Aug 25, 2014 8:01 PM
    Lefty Lefty Aug 25, 2014 11:50 PM Flag

    Yeah, I didn't intend on getting Forte. He was sitting at $52 so I bid on him. I was initially targeting Lacy (who ended up being the next nomination). I got sucked into a little bidding war as I was trying to up the price a little bit, but it backfired on me. I like Forte but getting him caught me off guard.

    I think Ball is going to have a huge year. Peyton is smart enough to get the RBs involved when it matters and the receiving weapons should give Ball a lot of room.

    As for Cobb, I dont know. Maybe it was a panic move. I had $60 left and no WR. I'm not actually a fan and want to trade him asap. I thought $11 each was ok for White and Fitz and it made me feel a lot better about my budget but Fitz vs the NFC West defense I do not like at all.

    is it too deep? should i trade morris for wr upgrades?

  • Public standard 10 team h2h $200 budget

    $0 left over
    2 QB, 5 WR, 4 RB, 1 TE, 1 K, 2 DEF

  • If I were to trade away Matt Ryan (Rodgers is my other QB), what RB could I expect in return? Would it be better to wait until there's an injury and they're desperate.

    Backup QB! Tannehill or J. McCown??

    by david c Aug 24, 2014 12:09 AM
    Lefty Lefty Aug 24, 2014 12:56 AM Flag

    Tannehill by a mile. McCown doesnt have Marshall, Jeffery, Forte, or Bennett any more. Also, McCown played some pretty weak defenses last year and the 1 decent defense he faced (Rams) he sucked, pick 6 and fumble. His usual throw it up and let the WR jump ball for it bailed him out into an ok performance.

    QB vs RB

    by C.L.b Aug 23, 2014 9:06 PM
    Lefty Lefty Aug 23, 2014 10:24 PM Flag

    I think the only QB worth taking 1st overall is Peyton. He's almost a lock for 300 yards and 3 tds per week. Brees, Rodgers and Stafford might do that a few times, but not average that every week. At 6 pts per TD for QBs I'd probably take Peyton. The second tier of QBs look at 265 and 2 tds per week average. The Martin's and Morris's can cover for not getting McCoy, AP, or Charles.

  • QBs: Rodgers-k, Ryan-k, Palmer
    WRs: Marshall-k, Jeffery-k, Cruz-k, Decker-k, Colston
    RBs: Stacy-k, Miller-k, Mathews, Pierce
    TEs: Olsen-k, Kelce
    K: Crosby
    Def: New England
    IDPs: A Ogletree-k, V Burfict, C Greenway, D Jackson, S Tulloch

    10 teams, Start - 1 QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, TE, 1 W/R/T, 1 K, 1 DEF, 4 IDP

    I took Palmer in the 14th only because my 2 QB keepers have byes week 9 and Palmer plays Dallas which should be pretty favorable. Should I cut him to add RB depth and just add a QB prior to week 9?

    For RBs Ingram, Moreno, Ivory, Jacquizz Rodgers, and Blount are available. The best available QBs are Tannehill, Flacco, and Palmer who has the better matchup, but it seems kind of silly to roster a guy for 9 weeks when he's probably only going to start for me one time.


    btw, Mathews and Pierce replaced non-keepers Fred Jackson and Danny Woodhead. Crosby replaced Phil Dawson. NE replaced Arizona and Detroit. For IDPs I cut Patrick Willis, Morgan Burnett and Sean Lee.

    Keep Lacy or AP?

    If you can keep an unlimited number of times I'd say Lacy. If 3 or fewer, AP.

    Team A, B, C

    by Tyler Durden Aug 18, 2014 6:37 PM
    Lefty Lefty Aug 18, 2014 6:44 PM Flag

    I'd want team C the most of those 3. The only difference between A and B is the kicker and a #6 WR? I'd favor A as being slightly better than B

  • 10 team dynasty. We start 2 RB and 1 wr/rb/te. All keeper picks are early rounders. I have Zac Stacy and Lamar Miller but dont feel good about either. Keeping Jackson would be about my 11-12th round pick. I'm not sure what other RBs will be available, maybe Ray Rice or Ridley/Vereen in NE.

    Last year Jackson had some great games - 21 pts and stinkers - 6 pts. What is his potential this year? Would it be worth cutting him to get someone else more consistent with better value?
