Hey, I was middle of the pack. I wasn't projected to finish dead last like Greenie was. :lol:

Projected to Finish 12th, Gang Green Should Have Attempted to Draft Players That are Good
Powered by Automated Insights
Draft Summary
Andy Dufresne once said that "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." Sadly, hope might be the only thing that Gang Green can cling to as their playoff aspirations are dwindling quickly. They were not able to overcome being the last team to pick in RealGM Knicks Forum FFL League and are forecasted to finish in 12th place with a record of 2-11-0 (1,332 points). With their first five picks, Gang Green focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (13th overall), RBs C.J. Spiller (36th) and Ryan Mathews (37th), and WRs A.J. Green (12th) and Emmanuel Sanders (60th). They have the best QB duo in the league, as they have Brees and Nick Foles on the roster.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Wow, this Patriots-Bucs trade could have a big effect on my team. Now Doug Martin gets to run behind a Pro Bowl guard in Logan Mankins and that might really boost his numbers, and Tim Wright (who got drafted on auto because Yahoo was effed up for the last few rounds) is going to the Patriots and might do well in the Aaron Hernandez role alongside Rob Gronkowski... or maybe he's insurance and a #1 guy if there's something wrong with Gronk.

Greenie, be afraid, be very afraid. :-P

Don't ever go by the yahoo draft grades cause they mean nothing. I've been playing in these yahoo leagues for many years and i get in about 5/7 leagues every year with 3 of them of them being big money leagues and i almost always get a C or D grade and i still consistently win in my leagues.

Stafford is a really nice player with those settings. Love that Calvin/Green combo. You're RB situation is seriously boom or bust though. You're going to need a few potential high risk high reward RBs for your bench bc one of Spiller or Martin will most likely bust. What's your bench looking like? Mike Evans could be nice across from V Jax but it's so hard to depend on rookies in the fantasy format because one mistake could have them riding pine indefinitely. But id wager that you are the strongest at WR in your league so I wouldn't sweat your WR3 too hard. Your RB depth will be important this year though. Make sure you have a plan(s) if Martin and/or Spiller busts. Cameron I like a lot this year as well.

I love your RB duo. I'm big on Giodude this year and Charles won me 5 leagues last year (picked him across the board in all 5). Larry Fitz has been an avoid guy for me this year though. Garçon will he Mr. Consistent this year as usual. Even with Desean Jackson in WAS, Garçon is a much larger target and way more of a possession/red zone target.

I like Greg Olsen this year. Cam will be great again but I usually wait for QB. For example you could have had Matt Ryan and a more money in the bak receiver than Larry Fitz.

Overall, as long as Gio takes that next step this year, your team will be a great team on the backs of your RB tandem.

Your team in a PPR format would be killer.

Edit: Antonio brown is a real nice pick as well

Good team . Not great. Drop that 2nd kicker and BUF defense and find some high upside sleepers on your waiver wire asap. Your team is a model of consistency but I don't know if there is enough upside to be a championship team. Look up some 'sleepers' find 2 you're comfortable with and are available and scoop them up. I would drop Dalton as well and find someone. It's just not worth it to carry a replacement when you'll really only play them on the bye week. QBs are always available so I would go for the home run play rather than planning for a bye week. Last year Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron,,Zac Stacy,and Josh Gordon won a lot of people money. Got to find those gems before someone else does. With 2 kicker, 2 Defenses, and 2 QBs you aren't giving yourself enough chances to land one of those gems.

Thanks for the reply. I also had a friend who's good with fantasy football help me out, and he liked my draft. Similar to your opinion.

I waited till the 6th round to grab a QB. Matt Ryan was my guy (friend recommended him as well, if not, Cam), but he was taken ONE pick before me, so that's why I picked Cam as my second guy. I got Cutler a little later as my backup, which will be awesome. Chicago will have a good offense this season, which will help Cutler's numbers. A Cam/Cutler QB combo is nice for me.

Believe me, he was on my avoid list if possible, but Larry Fitzgerald was the BPA for WR by far in the 4th round (39th pick). I got Garcon in the 5th round (42nd pick). The problem was a run of WR's early on. I got lucky to get Antonio Brown in the 3rd round the way that draft was going.

I wanted Jordan Cameron as my TE. Cleveland's offense will be pretty bad this year without Gordon, so Cameron will be the main focal point by far. On the flip side, you can say that defensive teams will game plan hard for him.
