Thread: Check out my fantasy team, why not? Looks good it does?

    Check out my fantasy team, why not? Looks good it does?

    I am notoriously horrible at fantasy sports (which is odd, because fantasies are usually all I'm good at), and this year will probably prove no different. Nevertheless, here is my submittal into the world of obsessive fandom and over-the-top exuberance. 8-team league, standard head-to-head ESPN rules:

    AWESOME STARTERS
    QB: Tom Brady
    RBs: Marion Barber, Chris Wells
    WRs: Calvin Johnson, Greg Jennings, Vincent Jackson
    TE: Owen Daniels
    D/ST: Redskins
    K: Robbie Gould

    BENCH JERKS
    QBs: Jay Cutler, Matt Schaub*
    RBs: Marshawn Lynch, Pierre Thomas
    WR: Eddie Royal
    TE: Greg Olsen
    K: Ryan Longwell


    Why do I have two kickers and not two Defensive teams? I dunno. Which TE should I start -- Olsen or Daniels? Beats me.

    Why do I have three QBs? Well, that one I can answer. During the later rounds I got up to relieve myself, it ended up taking longer than I had originally planned, and auto-draft picked Matt Schaub for me. Que sera, sera.

    for an 8 team league your team is not good

    start Olsen and drop Gould

    Ah, I see. Well that's not surprising. Any reason?

    8 team league and you have Chris Wells as a starter=FAIL

    Why do you need Schaub and Cutler?

    Pierre Thomas should be starting, though he is banged up and might not play

    your rb's are weak. barber is a No2 and Wells is a No4 or 5

    Well, I was debating between Thomas and Wells. And once Lynch comes back I'm going to plug him into the rotation, too.

    As I said, drafting Schaub was a mistake. I'm going to drop him and pick up someone else at the counsel of my JI contemporaries.

    Yeah, well, during the first round of the draft everyone was taking RBs. So I wanted to be different.

    Make a trade with Cutler or Shaub and get yourself a good RB

    Sorry Paulie, I agree with the others. Your RB's are bad, especially for an 8 team league. Wells not a starter, he is a good bench guy. Dont like Barber as your number 1, either. Johnson and Jennings a good receiver pair, though.
    Why Redskins for D? They are not in the top 10.

    Because I picked defense last. I never said I was good at this.

    I'm very confused on why Longwell, Thomas and Olsen are on the bench...

    Also, I like Washington's D this year but why the hell is that all you got in an 8 team league
