Team Better Than I Thought?
 
I've been playing for years, and drafted for my brother this weekend. This is the team I ended up with. He's a big sports fan but not quite as a fantasy nut as I. Apparently I got a lot of compliments from the other people in the draft for the results, I wasn't OVERLY amazed, at least at the RB position. Hopefully it turns out my expectations are just too high. Judge for yourself:

[B]QB - Philip Rivers (SD)
RB - DeAngelo Williams (CAR)
RB - Matt Forte (CHI)
FLEX - Malcolm Floyd (SD)
WR - Andre Johnson (HOU)
WR - Randy Moss (NE)
TE - Jason Witten (DAL)
K - David Akers (PHI)
DEF - Minnesota
IDP - Chad Greenway, LB (MIN)

Bench:

QB - Matthew Stafford (DET)
RB - Arian Foster (HOU)
RB - Justin Forsett (SEA)
RB - Pierre Thomas (NO)
WR - Mike Williams (SEA)
WR - Lee Evans (BUF)[/B]

Good god, do you draft with a bunch of middle schoolers or is this a 6 team league???

[QUOTE=msumarr54;728003]Good god, do you draft with a bunch of middle schoolers or is this a 6 team league???[/QUOTE]

10 teams. It's my brother's co-workers so I wouldn't know.

Dobber2330 09-08-2010 01:51 PM

How in the world do you get Moss and Andre Johnson on the same team??

gman71 09-08-2010 02:03 PM

Man,people really don't pay attention to anything when drafting

That team above is the sole reason why I've more or less done leagues with the same core of guys going on 10 years

Moss,AJ,Pierre Thomas and DeAngelo Williams should NEVER be on one team in a 12 team league

I guess what I don't understand in terms of the other players in the league, if they're smart enough to know how well I drafted, why did they allow it to happen? (I was pretty pumped when I saw Michael Turner go #6 to leave Johnson at #7)

ohiomike 09-08-2010 02:29 PM

So you're saying Andre Johnson went #7, which means Randy Moss slipped to #18?!?! And DeAngelo Williams slipped to #31?!?!? Which means either Rivers or Pierre Thomas slipped to #55?!?!? Which means #79 was either A.Foster or Forte?!?! So I guess that means you got Witten at #90?!?!

I don't care if this was each of the other 11 owners first time playing fantasy football, there is virtually no way that could happen! I mean, I believe you because who would feel the need to come on here and lie about a fantasy football team... but part of me would like to see what the complete results of that draft looked like, because it really makes no sense. Even for a 10 team league some of that would be hard to believe. Well, I hope your brother cuts you in on any winnings, and maybe joins a more competitive league next year.

Zacky1053 09-08-2010 02:42 PM

Here are the results. Really haven't looked over them at all.

I'm in 2 10 team leagues and well let's just say that that is one incredible team for a 12 team league:eek:

I won a league with some pretty inexperienced co-workers last year so my personal expectations were skewed most likely with my initial post. I wasn't trying to be cocky with my "better than I thought" question. Funny thing is looks like it might be the same situation with my brother this year.

bigsmoot2 09-08-2010 02:49 PM

Nevermind you just posted the results! :)!

And there are only 10 teams :D

oldgoldy97 09-08-2010 02:50 PM

I think you'll be starting Foster and Thomas before too long.

Zacky1053 09-08-2010 02:50 PM

[QUOTE=bigsmoot2;728103]I am also in a 12 team league same group of guys for about 5 years or so(6 pts for every TD), here is where your guys were drafted in our league, (we drafted on Aug 29th):

6. Andre Johnson
11. Randy Moss
13. DeAngelo Williams
16. Philip Rivers
36. Pierre Thomas
48. Arian Foster
54. Matt Forte

So you have 7 of the top 54 picks in our draft on your team. I am with Mike, I gotta see the rest of this draft board. Nice draft for you, but what do other people's teams look like:D[/QUOTE]

I posted the draft a couple posts back. Most likely my brother's playing with guys who are football "fans", but far from experts.

Zacky1053 09-08-2010 02:51 PM

[QUOTE=oldgoldy97;728106]I think you'll be starting Foster and Thomas before too long.[/QUOTE]

This isn's my team. It's my brother's. Kinda wish it was my team now.

jusdukky 09-08-2010 02:51 PM

I think your brother owes you a case of cards... I mean beer:D Let us know how this ends up at the end of the season:)!

Zacky1053 09-08-2010 02:52 PM

Guess I need to go back to counting school. :(

mgugs46 09-08-2010 02:57 PM

Ok, why in the hell in a 10 team [or any league] would someone take Rodgers overall #2 and than Brady overall #4??

mgugs46 09-08-2010 02:58 PM

The guy who drafted 10th/11th got the guys who should have gone 3rd/4th

Zacky1053 09-08-2010 02:59 PM

[QUOTE=mgugs46;728121]The guy who drafted 10th/11th got the guys who should have gone 3rd/4th[/QUOTE]

Yeah most leagues chase a RB in the first round and QB in the second or third. Clearly not the case with a few of these teams.

oldgoldy97 09-08-2010 03:00 PM

My league gives bonuses for passing attempts, tds over certain yards and yards. QBs were some of our biggest scorers last season with this new scoring system. That's why QBs went first this year.

mgugs46 09-08-2010 03:02 PM

Well at least that would make sense
