[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - BaumKrone - 01.09.2013

Hallo Leute,

wollte hier mal mein Team vorstellen und habe es von den Footballguys bewerten lassen. Hab wohl einiges richtig gemacht und ein paar kleiner Probleme bei WR/RB.

Hat Spaß gemacht, auf eine gute Saison.

QB: Aaron Rodgers, Sam Bradford
RB: Chris Johnson, Darren McFadden, DeAngelo Williams, Danny Woodhead
WR: Vincent Jackson, DeSean Jackson, Josh Gordon, Kendall Wright
TE: Jared Cook, Fred Davis
PK: Garrett Hartley
TD: Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills

Overview:

This team is built around strong quarterback play. Despite not being strong at running back and receiver, we think this team should be the league favorite or very close to it.

Nevertheless, we feel compelled to mention that the RB and WR positions make us a bit nervious and are likely to require some attention throughout the year. We'd feel much better if we knew you were committed to scooping up 2013's breakout players at RB and WR. Getting one or more of these would take this team to the next level.

Players we particularly like on this team include DeAngelo Williams, Sam Bradford, Fred Davis, Danny Woodhead, and the Ravens defense. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.
Bottom line:

With great inseason management, we think you have about a 90 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 85 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 77 percent chance of making the playoffs.

In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 2 of 2009:
Chris Johnson vs. HOU: 284 combined yards, 3 TD
Vincent Jackson vs. BAL: 141 receiving yards, 1 TD
DeSean Jackson vs. NO: 101 receiving yards, 1 TD
DeAngelo Williams vs. ATL: 111 combined yards, 1 TD

QB Summary:

You don't need us to tell you this, but we'll tell you anyway: Aaron Rodgers should ensure that your production at the quarterback position is among the best in the league. We have him as the #2 QB according to your scoring rules, and we figure he gives you about a 2.7 point-per-game advantage over an average starting QB.

Sam Bradford, who we have rated as the #17 QB, is a fine backup.

Incidentally, Bradford has what we project as a neutral matchup (SF) during Rodgers's bye.

RB Summary:

We have Chris Johnson ranked #12 at the position. So while he's passable as a first running back, he doesn't look particularly thrilling.

Darren McFadden should be a good second running back; he's a likely flex starter. Likewise, DeAngelo Williams should be excellent at RB3.

Danny Woodhead is an excellent depth pick, though you may not end up using him much.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Chris Johnson ranked as high as third, which would make him an above average first running back. Heath Cummings defends his high ranking as follows: "I think Chris Johnson has gotten a bit of a bad rap, partially brought on by his own bravado and lapses in judgement. The fact remains that Johnson has been a RB1 every year in the league except for 2011 and he's played 79 out of 80 games in those five seasons. There are serious indications that 2013 could be a much better year for him as well. Johnson's yards per carry improved to 4.5 in 2012 (his highest average since 2009) with an offensive line that was patchwork at best. The Titans intense focus on improving that line in the off season has led many to speculate that Titans may return to the run heavy days of 300+ carries for their star back. I believe Johnson tops 1600 total yards and scores 10+ touchdowns in 2013."

WR Summary:

We see both your starters at receiver as below average. Vincent Jackson is our eighth ranked WR, and we have DeSean Jackson at #25.

We see Josh Gordon as an average third receiver.

Because you're not particularly strong overall at the position, adding some depth here was a good idea. But we're not convinced Kendall Wright is the right player for the job. Check the end of the report for some alternative suggestions.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Vincent Jackson is ranked #5 by some of our writers, which would make him an above average first receiver. Mark Wimer reasons, "Jackson is in a great situation down in Tampa Bay, with good surrounding talent and the trust of strong-armed Josh Freeman - what's not to like? Jackson should have no problem meeting or exceeding last year's numbers as long as he steers clear of off-field entanglements (which he managed to do last season). "

DeSean Jackson is ranked #11 by some of our writers, which would make him a great second receiver and even a legitimate WR1. Heath Cummings reasons, "Jackson gets a bump with the injury to Jeremy Maclin's knee. He's now the clear #1 in Philadelphia and Chip Kelly will find a way to use his talents. Jackson will probably never reach the heights he once did, but he should be a solid WR2."

Josh Gordon is ranked #18 by some of our writers, which would make him a great third receiver and even a legitimate WR2. Matt Waldman reasons, "Gordon would have been my top receiver off the board in the 2013 NFL Draft if his career played out without issue. I don't blame Cleveland one bit for making that clear this spring. the only thing holding Gordon back from WR1 production is quarterback play. It appears the Browns have given Brandon Weeden a vote of confidence or as strange as it seems, think Thaddeus Lewis has potential to compete for the job. either way, Gordon is the WR1 in Cleveland and should benefit form a Norv Turner play-action game. How much is up to the improvement of the QB. I suspect he'll fall to WR3 range in many drafts, which makes him a bargain if he only misses those two games from the suspension. "

Some members of our staff have Kendall Wright ranked as high as 36th, which would make him a great fourth receiver and even a legitimate WR3. Andrew Garda defends his high ranking as follows: "The Titans want Wright more involved and off of the three wide receiver sets he was often stuck in for his rookie season. they need to know if Wright is the long term answer if Kenny Britt never pulls his act together. Wright himself wants to make bigger plays, which he certainly has the ability to do both after the catch and in vertical plays downfield. You can draft Wright as a second or third wide receiver but the potential to perhaps produce more is there as well."

TE Summary:

Though neither of them is elite, you have two viable starting tight ends in Jared Cook and Fred Davis. If one of them breaks out, or if you play the matchups well, you'll probably get good production from the position.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some of our staffers have Jared Cook as high as #6, which would make him an above average first tight end. Matt Waldman's take: "Cook is reunited with Jeff Fisher in St. Louis and will battle for time with Lance Kendricks. Cook is the more natural receiver, but neither are great blockers. The addition of Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin to a promising Chris Givens clouds the picture in terms of target priority. Cook's range of fantasy potential is broad at this stage, but if he does become a TE1, it will not be the norm for his career. That said, his former teammate Cortland Finnegan has told the media that Cook looks night and day better from his years in Tennessee and it makes him a nice risk-reward bargain. "

Kicker Summary:

Garrett Hartley, our sixth ranked kicker, won't win the league for you, but he'll do.

Defense Summary:

Between the Ravens and the Bills, you should get above average production here.


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - Fordpaule - 01.09.2013

Die Büdingen Vipers rated by the FootballGuys


QB: Robert Griffin III, EJ Manuel
RB: Eddie Lacy, Daryl Richardson, Montee Ball, LeVeon Bell
WR: Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Tavon Austin, Cordarrelle Patterson
TE: Jermichael Finley, Brandon Myers
PK: Josh Brown
TD: Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers

Overview:

Your receivers are the strongest part of this team and you look good at tight end as well. It's rare for us to endorse a team with weaknesses at quarterback and running back, but we're doing it right here! You should have a contender here. But your margin for error in terms of inseason management could be a bit thinner than some of your competitors'. You must remain committed to finding 2013's emergent players at RB and QB.

Players we particularly like on this team include Demaryius Thomas, Jermichael Finley, LeVeon Bell, and the Packers defense. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.
Bottom line:

With great inseason management, we think you have about a 90 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 80 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 73 percent chance of making the playoffs.

QB Summary:

We have Robert Griffin III rated #11 among quarterbacks, which makes him a viable starter if not an exciting one. And we're not crazy about EJ Manuel (ranked #29 among quarterbacks) as a backup. If Griffin III turns in the season we expect, this position won't ruin you, but it probably won't be a strength either. And if things go wrong, it could be a long year at QB.

Incidentally, Manuel has what we project as a neutral matchup (CLE) during Griffin III's bye.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Robert Griffin III is ranked #5 by some of our writers, which would make him an above average first quarterback. Ryan Hester reasons, "As of July 22, Griffin was cleared to practice, which tells me that his chances of missing any early season games are zero (pending another injury or re-injury during the preseason). This makes me very optimistic about Griffin, who was one of my favorite quarterbacks in fantasy in 2012."

Some of our staffers have EJ Manuel as high as #14, which would make him a great second quarterback and even a legitimate QB1. Chad Parsons's take: "Manuel is rare from an athletic standpoint. He has a Cam Newton-like build and can fuel his fantasy production with strong rushing production from the outset as his passing skills are refined. The Bills will have speed around him and Manuel will have an opportunity to be one of the best rushers at the position. In the mid-to-late second round of rookie drafts, Manuel is the ultimate upside play and ideal QB2."

RB Summary:

We have Eddie Lacy ranked #21 at the position, so we don't even necessarily see him as being RB1 worthy in this league. And we also have some doubts about whether your depth at running back is going to make up for it, so we feel this is an area of concern.

We see Daryl Richardson as an average second running back; he's a likely flex starter. Montee Ball is an excellent RB3. LeVeon Bell looks great as a fourth running back.

A quick note about the same-team Lacy/Jermichael Finley duo you've got here. Though the effect is probably negligible, this kind of pairing is likely to make your team more (not less) consistent than a comparable-scoring different-team pair. See this article (which was written before the 2008 season) for more discussion.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Eddie Lacy ranked as high as 13th, which would make him a fine first running back. Mark Wimer defends his high ranking as follows: "Lacy is getting nothing but kudos and strong endorsements from the Green Bay coaching staff and also outside observers/scouts. He's being called the best running back in Green Bay since Ahman Green - it looks like Lacy will be the featured back in Green Bay's potent offense this year, so he has jumped up both my RB and my overall boards a lot as of 8/19/13. The news on 8/27/13 that Dujuan Harris has landed on IR due to his knee re-injury means that Lacy has climbed my boards even higher, to borderline fantasy RB #1 status. He's the only show in town now with Harris out and Franklin struggling mightily. "

Some members of our staff have Daryl Richardson ranked as high as 18th, which would make him an above average second running back. Heath Cummings defends his high ranking as follows: "Richardson averaged 4.8 yards per carry as a rookie and now sits in the driver's seat for the starting position in St. Louis. The offensive line has improved, and weapons have been added in the passing game meaning we could see a much better looking offense for the Rams and more scoring opportunities for their lead running back. With his size it's unlikely that Richardson sees more than 20 carries a game, or goal line duties, but he showed the type of speed and agility in 2012 that will make him a threat to score from all over the field."

WR Summary:

Nice work here. We like both your starting receivers, as our projections indicate that they give you a combined 7.0 point-per-game advantage over an average opponent in this league. Calvin Johnson is our first ranked WR, and we have Demaryius Thomas at #4.

We see Tavon Austin as an average third receiver. Cordarrelle Patterson is a weak WR4.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some of our staffers have Cordarrelle Patterson as high as #39, which would make him a great fourth receiver and even a legitimate WR3. Chad Parsons's take: "Patterson, like Tavon Austin, will be used all over the field as a rookie. Outside of Greg Jennings and Kyle Rudolph, Patterson will not have much competition for playing time or targets. His transition to the NFL game, learning the basics of being a functional wide receiver, and improvement from Christian Ponder will ultimately determine his 2013 production."

TE Summary:

We like the choice of Jermichael Finley to start at tight end. We have him ranked fourth overall at the position. He's about 0.7 points per game better than an average starting TE in this league. Brandon Myers is a nice backup.

Kicker Summary:

Josh Brown, our eighth ranked kicker, won't win the league for you, but he'll do.

Defense Summary:

Between the Packers and the Steelers, you should get above average production here.


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - Nogard - 01.09.2013

Dynamo Patriots rated by footballguys.com


QB: Andrew Luck, Andy Dalton
RB: C.J. Spiller, Frank Gore, Ahmad Bradshaw, Pierre Thomas
WR: Pierre Garcon, Hakeem Nicks, Michael Floyd, Sidney Rice, Rueben Randle
TE: Rob Gronkowski, Zach Sudfeld
PK: Randy Bullock
TD: Arizona Cardinals

Overview:

We think you're looking good at quarterback and running back, and tight end is a plus for this team as well. Your squad is therefore easy for us to like despite a bit of weakness at the receiver position. But as weaknesses go, this is one is survivable. It's usually relatively easy to find fill-in guys on a weekly basis until a better player emerges during the season. As long as you stay on top of things inseason, you should be the league favorite or very close to it.

Players we particularly like on this team include C.J. Spiller, Andy Dalton, Pierre Thomas, and Randy Bullock. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.
Bottom line:

With great inseason management, we think you have about a 90 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 85 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 78 percent chance of making the playoffs.

In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 2 of 2012:
C.J. Spiller vs. KC: 170 combined yards, 2 TD
Hakeem Nicks vs. TB: 199 receiving yards, 1 TD
Andy Dalton vs. CLE: 318 passing yards, 3 TD
Frank Gore vs. DET: 105 combined yards, 1 TD

QB Summary:

We have Andrew Luck rated #9 among quarterbacks, which makes him a less-than-stellar starter in this league. But we like the selection of our #13-rated QB, Andy Dalton, to go with him. Hopefully between the two of them, you should be able to cobble together some good production at the position, but this strategy always carries with it the downside that you'll drive yourself crazy trying to decide who to start from week to week.
Incidentally, these two have a terrific combined schedule and a decent playoff schedule too. If you simply played the one with the better matchup each week, this is the schedule you'd face:

OAK | MIA | GB | CLE | NE | BUF | DET | NYJ | MIA | STL | TEN | ARI | TEN | IND | HOU | MIN

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Andrew Luck ranked as high as sixth, which would make him an above average first quarterback. Jeff Tefertiller defends his high ranking as follows: "My top dynasty quarterback, Luck produced solid rookie numbers and looks to improve in year two. Yes, he did not play especially well down the stretch last season, but should take a huge step forward with the offseason to work on his accuracy woes. Still very young, Luck could have a Peyton Manning-like career"

RB Summary:

C.J. Spiller is a solid choice as a top running back. He's our #4 RB, so you're ahead of most teams there.

Frank Gore should serve as a very solid second running back; he's a likely flex starter.

Since you're strong at the position, you probably don't absolutely need to roster more than two players here. Of your remaining guys, we like Ahmad Bradshaw the best, but you should keep the one you think has the best chance of putting up starter numbers. The rest might be considered expendable if you find you need roster space elsewhere.

WR Summary:

We see both your starters at receiver as below average. Pierre Garcon is our #23 ranked receiver, and we have Hakeem Nicks at #29.

Your bench looks good and should help offset the unexciting starting unit. Michael Floyd should be a good third receiver. Sidney Rice should also be solidly above average at WR4.

Rueben Randle is an excellent depth pick, though you may not end up using him much.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Pierre Garcon ranked as high as 14th, which would make him a fine first receiver. Ryan Hester defends his high ranking as follows: "Entering 2012, it was widely said that Garcon was the perfect receiver for Robert Griffin III because of the deep ball abilities that both players possess. Injuries held him back last year, but when he played, he was excellent. He's been cleared to fully participate in training camp, and if he enters the regular season with a clean bill of health, there's no reason to expect anything different."

Some of our staffers have Hakeem Nicks as high as #10, which would make him a great second receiver and even a legitimate WR1. Anthony Borbely's take: "Nicks was a WR1 in both 2010 and 2011 but struggled mightily last year because of injuries. I think Nicks has top-5 talent and just needs to stay healthy. Nicks is sure to be motivated by being in a contract year and I expect him to be a borderline top-10 WR with upside. "

Some members of our staff have Michael Floyd ranked as high as 32nd, which would make him an above average third receiver. Anthony Borbely defends his high ranking as follows: "Floyd had a disappointing rookie season but I expect him to take a big step up in Bruce Arian's offense. Having Carson Palmer helps and Floyd is simply much more talented than Andre Roberts. I consider Floyd to be a mid-WR3 with huge upside depending on his development. Floyd is one of the most undervalued players at any position in drafts. "

TE Summary:

As you are well aware, Rob Gronkowski is an elite tight end. We have him ranked second overall at the position. He's about 1.5 points per game better than an average starting TE in this league. Zach Sudfeld is a nice backup.

Kicker Summary:

With Randy Bullock, you should be above average at the position.

Defense Summary:

The Cardinals are probably not a difference-maker at defense, but they should be OK.

When you don't have an elite defense, one option is a committee approach. That is, try to get two cheap defenses whose schedules fit well together. Here are a few teams who we think may be available and whose schedules fit best with the Cardinals', along with the combined schedule that each would create:


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - Terrel Suggs - 02.09.2013

Also wenn ich mit dem Draft nicht gewinne sollte ... Wink

QB: Colin Kaepernick, Matt Schaub
RB: Doug Martin, Steven Jackson, Giovani Bernard, Shonn Greene
WR: Roddy White, Eric Decker, Vincent Brown, Lance Moore
TE: Owen Daniels, Marcedes Lewis
PK: David Akers
TD: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons
Overview:

We think you're looking good at quarterback and running back. Your squad is therefore easy for us to like despite a bit of weakness at the receiver position. But as weaknesses go, this is one is survivable. It's usually relatively easy to find fill-in guys on a weekly basis until a better player emerges during the season. As long as you stay on top of things inseason, you should be the league favorite or very close to it.

Players we particularly like on this team include Colin Kaepernick, Vincent Brown, Matt Schaub, Marcedes Lewis, and Eric Decker. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.

Bottom line:
With great inseason management, we think you have about a 99 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 90 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 84 percent chance of making the playoffs.
In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 11 of 2012:

Matt Schaub vs. JAX: 527 passing yards, 5 TD
Lance Moore vs. OAK: 53 receiving yards, 2 TD
Doug Martin vs. CAR: 161 combined yards
Marcedes Lewis vs. HOU: 40 receiving yards, 2 TD
QB Summary:

We expect Colin Kaepernick to be a solid starter. According to our projections, he's the #5 QB, so you should be better off than most teams in the starting quarterback slot.

Matt Schaub, who we have rated as the #15 QB, is a nice backup and could conceivably emerge as either a starter for your team or, if Kaepernick plays as expected, some tempting trade bait for teams with quarterback troubles.

Incidentally, Schaub has what we project as a neutral matchup (IND) during Kaepernick's bye.

RB Summary:

Obviously, Doug Martin is a great way to anchor any RB group. We've got him ranked #2 at the position, and by our reckoning he gives you about a 1.3 point advantage over an average team in the first RB slot.

Steven Jackson should serve as a very solid second running back; he's a likely flex starter. Likewise, Giovani Bernard should be excellent at RB3. Not only do we like Shonn Greene as a fourth running back, we love that you stole him from the Chris Johnson owner.

A quick note about the same-team Jackson/Roddy White duo you've got here. Though the effect is probably negligible, this kind of pairing is likely to make your team more (not less) consistent than a comparable-scoring different-team pair. See this article (which was written before the 2008 season) for more discussion.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Shonn Greene is ranked #39 by some of our writers, which would make him a great fourth running back and even a legitimate RB3. Ryan Hester reasons, "Does anyone remember how poorly Chris Johnson began the last two seasons? Greene won't remind anyone of a modern-day Walter Payton, but he's more capable than the backups behind Johnson since LenDale White. At the very worst, he should see goal line work on an improving offense."

WR Summary:

We like Eric Decker as a second WR, but we consider your starting receivers, as a group, to be a little below par. Roddy White is our #10 ranked receiver, and we have Decker at #18.

Your bench looks good and should help offset the unexciting starting unit. Vincent Brown should serve as a very solid third receiver. Likewise, Lance Moore should be excellent at WR4.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Roddy White ranked as high as fourth, which would make him an above average first receiver. Jeff Tefertiller defends his high ranking as follows: "White has been a constant fixture toward the top of the receiver rankings. With Ryan under center, and Jones lined up across the formation, the veteran receiver will have ample opportunity to put up big numbers. "

TE Summary:

Owen Daniels is just OK as a starting tight end (we have him ranked #10). So the selection of Marcedes Lewis, who we see as a solid backup, was wise.

Kicker Summary:

David Akers, our ninth ranked kicker, won't win the league for you, but he'll do.

Defense Summary:

The Buccaneers are probably not a difference-maker at defense, but they should be OK.


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - Nogard - 02.09.2013

Hab das Gefühl jeder ist bei footballguys nen Favorit. Naja umso größer die Liga, desto ausgeglichener die Teams denke ich. die großen Teams gespickt mit mehreren Top-Leuten gibts so nicht. Aufgrund der Größe hat man immer eine etwas schlechtere Position.

Daher möchte ich noch zusätzlich meine eigene Meinung abgeben und vllt auch begründen, warum ich so gewählt habe.

Ich hatte in Runde 1 Pick #6.

Runde 1 CJ Spiller - RB - klar Runde 1 nen top RB ist denk ich der Klasiker diese Saison. Eigentlich wollt ich gern Lynch aber der ging überraschenderweise schon an #2.

Runde 2 Frank Gore - RB - einer der top RB2 denke ich und damit bin ich auf RB richtig gut besetzt.

Runde 3 Andrew Luck - QB - in meinem ersten Draft in der GFRL5 gingen die QBs fast alle in Runde 1-3 weg aufgrund des Hinweises von Arwald man müsse die doch bei Zeiten draften in ner 14 Team Liga. In der GFRL5 hatte ich abgewartet und mir dann den letzten verbliebenen QB der top 12 mit RG3 in Runde 5 geholt. Hier wollte ich nicht schon wieder RG3 haben nachdem der auch in der GFRL 1 im Team ist. Ich hab mir angeschaut wer bereits nen QB hat zumal hier auch schon wieder Kaepernick und Newton glaub weg waren. Die Anzahl der Picks bis ich wieder dran war erschien mir zu hoch. UNd da Stafford und Flacco vor meinemnächste Pick gedraftet wurde gab mir das glaub ich Recht, dass Luck wieder weg gewesen wäre und wieder nur RG3 da war. Ich denke mit dem neuen OC wird Luck weniger tiefe Pässe werfen und somit auch nen geringeres INT risiko haben als letzte Saison.

Runde 4 Rob Gronkowski - TE - Eigentlich wollte ich auf Runde 5 warten, aber die top WR waren alle weg und die Gruppe der WR2 noch ziemlich groß. Nach dem Roster cut war mir klar, dass Gronk in week 3 spätestens 4 wieder spielt. Nach mir draftet ein anderer Patriots Fan. Also dacht ich mir schon den bekommste in Runde 5 nicht mehr. Nachdem ich Gronk nun hatte (so in Runde 10) las ich dann die Nachricht Gronk im Training in voller Uniform.

Runde 5 Hakeem Nicks - WR - Ich wusste, dass WR nun meine schlechte Position sein wird, aber das hatte ich bei den Picks vorher in Kauf genommen. Bei Nicks hoffe ich einfach, dass er aufgrund des Contract years auch bei kleineren Blessouren spielen will und wird.

Runde 6 Piere Garcon - WR - Auch hier Verletzungsfragezeichen aber denke nen guter Pick für Runde 6.

Runde 7 Ahmad Bradshaw - RB - Brown ging 4 Picks und Thompkins direkt vor mir somit waren meine Wunsch-Kandidaten als WR3 weg. also biun ich auf den BU RB gegangen.

Runde 8 Zach Sudfeld - TE - nach Gronk war klar ich musste eher auf den 2. TE gehn. Cook und Cameron waren weg, also Sudfeld als direkten Gronk-Ersatz. Auch wenn ich bewusst nen bye week Problem hier nun habe.

Runde 9 Andy Dalton - QB - vllt wäre die Team Defense hier besser gewesen, aber von den verbliebenen BU QBs war er der einzige, der von der bye week noch am Besten zu Luck passte. daher wollte ich hier auf sicher gehn.

Runde 10 Michael Floyd - WR - Steelers und chargers waren nun auch schon weg. Also den BU WR an der Stelle.

Runde 11 Sidney Rice - WR - einfach mehr bessere Tiefe reinbringen, weil die WRs nicht die besten sind. Das war bezüglich der DST vllt der nächste Fehler. das Auto-Pick Team hat leider die Rams mir direkt danach weggeschnappt.

Runde 12 Arizona Cardinals - DST - nun waren auch noch Giants und Packers als zweite DST weg aber es musste gehandelt werden. Ich hoffe einfach mal auf ne bessere Saison hier.

Runde 13 Rueben Randle - WR - das war nen Auto-Pick weil die Zeit rum war, eigentlich wollt ich noch ne DST aber da dauerte es zu lanf nachm Spielplan nochma zu schaun. Vllt ja Trade value.

Runde 14 Randy Bullock - K - der hat mir einfach gegen die Saints gut gefallen in der preseason.

Runde 15 pierre Thomas - RB - mittlerweile glaub ich fast das könnte nen echter steal gewesen sein hier. Aber bin nicht sicher wie die RBs in NO eingesetzt werden mit sproles, ingram und thomas.


Ich bin soweit zufrieden. Über die Einschätzungen erfahrener oder anderer zu meinen Picks würde ich mich freuen, gern auch per PN.

Gruß
Matze


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - Fordpaule - 02.09.2013

Das die FG hier bisher allen Teams gute Chancen geben in die PO´s zu kommen liegt einfach daran, das mit 8 Teams auch verhältnismäßig viele dort hinein kommen können. ;-)

Hi Matze,

geb dir Recht, die Bewertung von den Footballguys ist nicht immer ganz 100% verständlich, aber eine gute Richtlinie ob man irgendwo noch gravierende Schwächen hat.

Ich fand deinen Pick mit Sudfeld einen sehr schlauen, du hast das Prinzip des Handcuffings gute verstanden und gleich angewendet Wink

Mit meinem Roster bin ich eigentlich auch schwer zufrieden. Das ich als Nr. 14 keinen Top RB mehr bekomme, war mir von vornherein klar. Darum habe ich eine bisschen andere Strategie gewählt und mir zuerst Rodgers gesichert. Das ist übrigens der erste Draft, wo ich ihn als Nr. 14 noch picken konnte, in allen Mock Drafts war er schon weg.
Da ich einen QB in der ersten Runde gepickt habe, war ich natürlich bei den RBs schon ein bisschen im Hintertreffen und musste auch bei den WR eher stabile Receiver aus dem Mittelfeld suchen, da die Top Receiver natürlich schon weg waren.

Alles in allem bin ich mit meinem Draft eigentlich sehr zufrieden und ich konnte mir eine ausgeglichenere Mannschaft zusammenstellen, wie ich es in der GFRL 4 geschafft habe.

Ich freu mich auf die Saison mit euch, bin gespannt wie sich die Spieler und die Saison mit euch so entwickelt.

The quarterback position looks good, and we like your overall strength at the tradionally less important positions as well. Despite not being strong at running back and receiver, we think this team should be among the top teams in the league.

Nevertheless, we feel compelled to mention that the RB and WR positions make us a bit nervious and are likely to require some attention throughout the year. We'd feel much better if we knew you were committed to scooping up 2013's breakout players at RB and WR. Getting one or more of these would take this team to the next level.

Players we particularly like on this team include Lamar Miller, Steve Hauschka, and the Jets defense. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.

Bottom line:
With great inseason management, we think you have about a 85 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 80 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 67 percent chance of making the playoffs.
In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 11 of 2010:

Steve Johnson vs. CIN: 137 receiving yards, 3 TD
Arian Foster vs. NYJ: 143 combined yards, 2 TD
Fred Jackson vs. CIN: 129 combined yards, 2 TD
Reggie Wayne vs. NE: 107 receiving yards, 1 TD
Joel Dreessen vs. NYJ: 106 receiving yards, 1 TD
QB Summary:

We expect Tom Brady to be a solid starter. According to our projections, he's the #4 QB, so you should be better off than most teams in the starting quarterback slot.

Jay Cutler, who we have rated as the #18 QB, is a nice backup and could conceivably emerge as either a starter for your team or, if Brady plays as expected, some tempting trade bait for teams with quarterback troubles.

Incidentally, Cutler has what we project as a neutral matchup (DET) during Brady's bye.

RB Summary:

Depth is a serious concern, but we do like your starting group, particularly Lamar Miller as a second running back. Our projections have Arian Foster ranked ninth and Miller ranked at #20.

We may not love Fred Jackson at third RB, but we like the fact that you can hold the C.J. Spiller owner hostage.

We might suggest adding a bit more depth here. See the end of the report for some suggestions on who to pick up.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Arian Foster ranked as high as second, which would make him an above average first running back. Anthony Borbely defends his high ranking as follows: "Foster has averaged more than 1800 yards from scrimmage and has 47 TDs in the last three years. With his high expected TD numbers, I think Foster has a great chance to be the top fantasy RB this year. There is some concern about Foster's back and leg issues, but he was activated from the PUP list and appears to be on target for the regular season opener. While there is risk, I am ranking Foster second to Adrian Peterson because of the huge numbers he has posted year after year. "

Some of our staffers have Fred Jackson as high as #26, which would make him a great third running back and even a legitimate RB2. Jeff Tefertiller's take: "Jackson will be healthy and playing week one after missing time last season with injury. Yes, he is aging, but a steal at this point. "

WR Summary:

We see both your starters at receiver as below average. Reggie Wayne is our #21 ranked receiver, and we have Jordy Nelson at #22.

Steve Johnson should serve as a very solid third receiver; he's a likely flex starter. But Aaron Dobson is out of his league as a fourth WR.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some of our staffers have Reggie Wayne as high as #12, which would make him a fine first receiver. Andy Hicks's take: "Reggie Wayne proved that his relatively poor 2011 season was a one off due to the total collapse of the Colts offense thanks to the Peyton Manning injury. Rookie QB, Andrew Luck looked to Wayne frequently, as is evidenced by the 213 targets. The touchdown figure keeps the ranking of Wayne down a little and turning 35 this year, he may find it difficult to become a WR1 once again. Until the other receivers up their game, Wayne should enjoy a final year of massive targets though. "

Jordy Nelson is ranked #8 by some of our writers, which would make him a great second receiver and even a legitimate WR1. Heath Cummings reasons, "Nelson is reportedly healthy and without limitations, making him a go for week one. The WR situation is Green Bay is difficult to figure out, but Nelson should be a big part of it one way or another."

Some of our staffers have Aaron Dobson as high as #56, which would make him a fine fourth receiver. Heath Cummings's take: "It looks like Dobson may have a legitimate shot to earn a starting role in 2013. While I don't think he's an exceptional talent, any receiver with Tom Brady at quarterback has a chance to be special."

TE Summary:

As you are well aware, Jimmy Graham is an elite tight end. We have him ranked first overall at the position. He's about 3.4 points per game better than an average starting TE in this league. We don't see Joel Dreessen as an adequate second tight end. An upgrade here would be nice, but if Graham holds up, it won't matter.

Kicker Summary:

With Stephen Gostkowski and Steve Hauschka, you should be above average at the position.

Defense Summary:

Between the Texans and the Jets, you should get above average production here.


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - KaBa78 - 02.09.2013

@ Casper du kannst ja immer noch traden...


[GFRL2] Teamvorstellung 2013 - DrRockso - 02.09.2013

A bit odd to name your team after the Raiders and then not take any of them. But we're sure you have your reasons. On to the analysis...

Let's start by remarking that we appreciate your old-school leanings: you have a team marked by strength at the running back position. Because the position is so sought after, a team constructed like this usually has a chance to make the playoffs. But with the quarterback and wide receiver both being less strong, you may need to do something to change the outlook of this team. Your deficiencies are likely to show themselves through the bye weeks, so try to manuever early in improving the quarterback and/or receiver positions before week four.

Keep an eye out for quarterbacks like Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck from last year, Cam Newton the year before, Michael Vick and Josh Freeman in 2010, and Matt Cassel and Kurt Warner in 2008. All were available cheap in August, and all contributed to fantasy championship teams. Similarly, wide receivers like James Jones and Cecil Shorts were available after a lot of the drafts. Landing some of this year's top waiver players would be a huge help, so pay close attention to increased workloads, targets, injuries, etc.

Players we particularly like on this team include David Wilson, Steve Smith, and Daniel Thomas. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.
Bottom line:

With great inseason management, we think you have about a 70 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With good inseason management, we think you have about a 55 percent chance of making the playoffs.
With average inseason management, we think you have a 35 percent chance of making the playoffs.

In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 15 of 2009:
Ben Roethlisberger vs. GB: 503 passing yards, 3 TD
Steve Smith vs. MIN: 157 receiving yards, 1 TD
Andre Johnson vs. STL: 196 receiving yards
Joe Flacco vs. CHI: 234 passing yards, 4 TD

QB Summary:

We have Joe Flacco rated #16 among quarterbacks, so we're not even sold on him as a fantasy starter in your league. But #19-rated QB Ben Roethlisberger provides you with another viable option. So while the position doesn't figure to be a strength, with shrewd management and a little luck you might end up with decent production at QB
Incidentally, these two have a terrific combined schedule and a nice playoff schedule too. If you simply played the one with the better matchup each week, this is the schedule you'd face:

TEN | CLE | HOU | BUF | MIA | GB | BAL | OAK | NE | BUF | DET | CLE | BAL | MIN | DET | NE

A quick note about the same-team Flacco/Ray Rice duo you've got here. Though the effect is probably negligible, this kind of pairing is likely to make your team more (not less) consistent than a comparable-scoring different-team pair. See this article (which was written before the 2008 season) for more discussion.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some members of our staff have Joe Flacco ranked as high as 15th. Heath Cummings defends his high ranking as follows: "The fact that Flacco is now a Super Bowl winning quarterback certainly helps his credibility in the NFL but it doesn't do much for his fantasy football owners. Flacco is an excellent choice for a QBBC system but far too inconsistent to count on as your starter. The loss of both Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta make me very leery about Flacco in 2013."

RB Summary:

Ray Rice is a solid choice as a top running back. He's our #7 RB, so you're ahead of most teams there.

We love David Wilson as a second running back; he's a likely flex starter. We also see BenJarvus Green-Ellis as an above average RB3. Daniel Thomas should serve as a very solid fourth running back.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some of our staffers have BenJarvus Green-Ellis as high as #25, which would make him a great third running back and even a legitimate RB2. Mark Wimer's take: "While BenJarvus Green-Ellis isn't an exciting option in PPR leagues, I believe he'll retain the first- and second-down rushing duties in Cincinnati this year (and short-yardage plunges), and probably handle 70%+ of the team's carries, regardless of rookie Giovani Bernard's presence. The enthusiasm for Bernard reminds me of prior years' fascination with Bernard Scott, which is not good news for Bernard's fantasy owners in my opinion."

WR Summary:

Your starting receivers should, as a unit, be adequate but not great. In particular we like Steve Smith as a second WR. Andre Johnson is our #7 ranked receiver, and we have Smith at #19.

Brian Hartline is a little below average as a third receiver.

We might suggest adding a bit more depth here. See the end of the report for some suggestions on who to pick up.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Andre Johnson is ranked #3 by some of our writers, which would make him an above average first receiver. Jeff Tefertiller reasons, "Expect Johnson's role to remain the same. Injuries are the only concern for the veteran receiver. The addition of Hopkins could actually help keep coverages honest ... much moreso than Kevin Walter"

Some members of our staff have Brian Hartline ranked as high as 36th, which would make him a fine third receiver. Heath Cummings defends his high ranking as follows: "The addition of Mike Wallace and departure of Davonne Bess create an intriguing opportunity for Hartline. Wallace should stretch the defense providing an opening underneath for Hartline. Hartline has established great rapport with Tannehill this offseason and could be a PPR monster."

TE Summary:

Kyle Rudolph is viable but below average as a starting tight end (we have him ranked #8). We're also not too fired up about Jeff Cumberland as a backup.

Note that the above "thoughts" were generated by David Dodds's projections. Others have different takes:

Some of our staffers have Kyle Rudolph as high as #4, which would make him an above average first tight end. Chad Parsons's take: "Rudolph has been a major red zone factor through two seasons, converting a Gronkowski-like 11-of-19 targets into touchdowns. With the additions of Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson, Rudolph may need to match his nine touchdowns from a year ago to be an upper-tier tight end option. "

Jeff Cumberland is ranked #9 by some of our writers, which would make him a great second tight end and even a legitimate TE1. Jeff Tefertiller reasons, "It would be asking too much to expect Cumberland to be a fantasy starter, but he will make a solid spot starter as the Jets offense is void of pass catchers."

Kicker Summary:

With Phil Dawson and Greg Zuerlein, you should be above average at the position.

Defense Summary:

When you don't have an elite defense, one option is a committee approach. That is, try to get two cheap defenses whose schedules fit well together. Here are a few teams who we think may be available and whose schedules fit best with the Chargers', along with the combined schedule that each would create:
