My first year in a TD league and we have to start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex (WR/RB/TE), TE, K, DEF with all TDs worth 6 points, 1 point for 15 yards rushing and receiving, 1 point for 30 yards passing. Please let me know what you think of my team/draft:



1st: AP

2nd: CJ?K

3rd: Peyton

4th: Gore

5th: Colsten

6th: Amendola

7th: J Cameron (maybe too early here)

8th: M Austin

9th: Vick

10th: Deang Williams

11th: Josh Gordon

12th: Woodhead

13th: R Randle

14th: NEP DEF



I'm surely weak at WR, strong RB core, high upside TE and great QBs. Your thoughts?

I agree with your assessment David. If you would have picked a WR instead of Manning at pick # 3, you would have had a powerhouse of a team. No one should be picking a QB this early. Even in a 6 point per TD league. Colston as your # 1 is not a good thing. Drafting Cameron that early was a mistake. No need to draft Woodhead in a TD league. He should be your first sacraficial causualty on the wire when someone emerges. He only has value in PPR leagues.



However, you did superb in your later rounds. Getting Gordon that late was a great move. He might really bust out under the new offensive scheme in Brownie' land. Randle in the 13th? Great job! When Nicks goes down to his latest injury, Randle will be productive.

Between Amendola and Austin, one needs to stay healthy and productive. Everyone counts out Austin. If those swiss cheese hamstrings hold up, he will put up solid numbers. So far, he looks good and will always be a red zone target in single coverage. I see an 8 to 10 td count for him if his health holds up.



I think with a little luck, you should have a really good team. Just don't mess with it for the first two to three weeks and see what happens.

I have to say I disagree with you a bit, James. I think Peyton in round three in a league where all touchdowns (including QB touchdowns) are 6 points is a solid move. I think in this setup the top 3 to 5 QBs are going to produce dramatically more points than those available in round 4.

Thanks James - I had the choice of taking Julio Jones or D Thomas over Peyton, but I was concerned with the corner pick of the draft I would end up with Kaepernick (who I'm not a fan of). I should've taken the risk, but se la vie! I truly like my late round picks in Gordon, Austin and Randle with some hope that 1 or even 2 will step up.

Last year I would have probably agreed wtih Evann on Manning in the third round, but this year with very few RBs out there holding off on a QB was a better strategy for me, regardless of points/TD. I do agree with James a WR in R3 would have been a much better selection and given you a stronger overall team, even though you would have been Manningless. There would still have been solid QBs are there, granted lower tiered, but you would built a stronger team given the bump at WR.



Big names at RB, like Peterson, can't support CJ, even though he did run for 1200 last year. Gore MUST stay healthy, but has a great O-line in front of him. Another big name in D Will, but he hasn't produced recently either.



As James already mentioned health concerns with Amendola and Austin. I tip my hat to Amedola having a stronger season, a deep pick for Randle is nice.

I agree that a Romo or Luck in the next round may have made your team better, but I don't think that your WRs will kill you -- when weighed against the extra points Manning will get you over the next tier and given your depth at RB.

First, you have the best possible flex options in Gore and D. Williams, playing matchups. Both will get 20 touches per game, minimum (D. Williams will be used more in the passing game this year too, and J. Stewart is banged up).

Second, I think Amendola will give you tremendous production, when he plays. We know he will miss a few games. I have him in a league and then picked up Kembrell Tomkins to handcuff my WR3 (thinking that having Brady's main target is never bad - look at Givens and Branch).

Third, having main targets of Brady and Brees is not necessarily weak -- though they both spread the ball around.

Fourth - you can easily trade Gore or D. Williams in a few weeks for an upgrade at WR. In fact, I bet some team dealing with injuries will try to package another QB and a solid WR1 to you for one of those RBs and Vick. I bet Vick explodes early in the season.

Fifth - you Defense may score 50 points in games against Tuel (WHO??) and Sanchez/Gino Smith. You should get off to a good start and look to victimize a team who's qb and rbs are struggling, just when that owner is starting to panic in weak 4 or 5.

Thanks Sheldon - I like the assessment. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my team. I'm hopeful my mishap of taking a QB early won't bite me later on.
