    Default Fantasy Football Discussion/Advice Thread

    I figured a thread would be nice for those of us with questions and answers about any of our teams/rules/scoring and all that comes with it.

    Okay-I may participate in the VH FFL but I need some of the Linkers ideas here on who to retain in a keeper league. I can only keep six and I'm pulling my hair out. It's a high scoring performance league, 1pt. per reception and all that (TE's=WR's). I've already deleted the expenable players. Their pt. totals from last year are listed to the right of their names. Thanks!



    Hasselbeck, Matt SEA QB 375
    Vick, Michael ATL QB 341
    McAllister, Deuce NOS RB 278
    Westbrook, Brian PHI RB 299
    Bennett, Drew TEN WR 270
    Burleson, Nate MIN WR 219
    Walker, Javon GBP WR 292
    Wayne, Reggie IND WR 262
    Gates, Antonio SDC TE 250
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    With 1 pt per reception, Deuce and Westbrook are must-keepers. How many wr's do you start? That has an impact on how many of them to keep. No sense in keeping 4 if you only start 2. 3 would seem to be good. Gates would seem to lose some value as a wr. Wayne, Walker, and Burleson would be the wr's I would keep, and probably Vick over Hass due to rushing and upside.

    Suggestion - see if anybody will do a 2 for 1 trade with your, especially somebody low in wr depth. Offering Bennett (one yr wonder IMO) and Gates (big name at TE, but not as wr) are pretty big names right now that might bring you a stud instead of losing decent players. Try to get somebody like Chad Johnson or Torry Holt for those two.

    Good on the trade suggestion but time is almost up. I can start 1 RB and 4 WR/TE's or up to 3 RB's and 2 WR's.

    I am of the same thought on who to keep, except I was leaning toward Gates over Burleson. I also believe that without Mason, Bennett will be well covered by DB's at least until Calico is up to full speed.

    I've got Gates as the #1 TE in rankings while Burleson is anywhere between 13th and 20th on the WR rankings. I don't know. More input, please!

    The 3 I would drop are:
    1) Gates. If TE = WRs, you can replace his production from another WR.
    2) Walker. I know its hard, but his holdout could be a real problem. Let it be someone else's headache. And this is coming from a guy who drafted him last year and gets to keep him.
    3) Hasselbeck or Vick. I assume these are your only 2 QBs. Pick one as your starter and pick up a capable backup in your draft. If you'd rather keep both and drop another player, I'd drop Bennet, whose point total is high because of a few games with Volek and McNair is healthy now. Perhaps a one year wonder.

    I think I'll be keeping Walker. He's just gonna be too valuable down the road.

    So this is what I'm looking at keeping (-I have to drop by tomorrow evening)

    you'll be glad you kept Burleson!

    I'd be interested to see your scoring system.

    i'd keep antonio gates too...13 td receptions last year puts him with the elite wr's in the league....i don't have a good feeling about hassleback this year...his wr's still need a lot to be desired.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    i have a couple fantasy football ?'s as well...

    Clinton Portis---the dude had 1300 yards last year, but only 5 tds..should he be ranked as an elite RB worth a first or second round pick?

    Steven Jackson and Marshall Faulk--I don't think I'd touch Faulk this year, but is Jackson gonna get the bulk of the carries (and fantasy pts)?

    Drew Brees--how short of a leash is he on? i'd like to have him as a starting QB, but i'd hate to see him get pulled for Rivers after 1 bad game.

    Portis: late first round very early 2nd round if you are lucky, he is a keeper in most keeper leagues that I know of (so far).
    Steven Jackson is a guy that I would love to have on my team as a 2nd R.B....keeper leagues will be all over this guy early, I say late 2nd or early 3rd in non-keeper leagues.
    Brees: I think he had 1 more fantasy point than Favre last year and that was the Packers best offensive number season ever. So, watch his leash more than anything. Brees is very underrated by the coaches and owner.
    Just go for it!

    I'd agree with Brew Crew on all points, PLUS Brees is playing on a one year deal, if I'm correct, so he's playing for the big money.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    good points thanks...seems there are a lot of capable rb's this year....might be a better use of 1st round pick to snag an elite qb (manning or mcnabb...seems to be a big drop off after them)..what d'you think?

    I think if Manning were to fall to me in any of my drafts, I'd probably take him over an RB, THIS year. I'd let someone else grab McNapp and Culpepper.
