Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

I apologize if my tone and voice change by the time you read this whole piece.  I’m writing this here lead paragraph before this league has even drafted because I’m gonna link to all these Fantasy Football peeps via their twitter handles.  Seeing as I don’t do much advertising of who I follow in the tweety world, consider this a small dosing of it.  If all goes well, I’ll keep this bubbly persona throughout but if I have a draft disaster – or a draftaster if you will – I might go full Eeyore up in this mo’fo.  But before I go from smug jerk to morose jackass, let’s cover who all was in this little draft of ours…oh wait, I didn’t tell you the league set up, did I?  Well that’s easy enough to fix and let’s me kill two birds with one stone.  This is a Razzball Commenter League set up.  Don’t know what that is?  Well click the link!  It will guide you to a magical world of Fantasy Football wonder where you yourself can either commish or sign up for your very own RCL and compete with these guys for the Grand Prize.  You man/woman enough for that challenge?  Yes?  Well then prove it and sign up!  Ok, now back to the post…

So now that you know who/what I was up against on this auspicious occasion, now I get to lay on you how I did.  So here’s my Razzball Expert League team for 2013 Fantasy Football:

Well, I’m not gonna lie, this isn’t my favorite team I’ve drafted of all time at this point.  I got sniped twice early – my 4th was supposed to be Amendola and my 6th was supposed to be Gronk – and so I took the next best thing when it was presented.  Is it a bad team?  I wouldn’t call it that.  Having T-Rich/Lynch/Gore as your RB1-3 is hardly something that causes heartache and given I have Ivory on my bench, I’m pretty tickled about my running back situation even if it’s not ideal for a PPR league.  The draft process was a little unique as people were very aware of it being a 1 PPR league.  The WRs I would’ve targeted in the 2nd where I took Lynch were already gone.  When the third rolled around, I still wasn’t happy with the options presented so I went with Gore.  I followed that up with saying to myself ‘I gotta take a WR this round…hey look, Amendola’s still available!’  That was six picks before mine.  I was a little sad but Marques Colston isn’t a bad consolation prize, of course.  After that, the deals at the WR position just didn’t seem to be there so I went upside heavy with my WRs for PPR taking a buncha guys who’d fit that role.  All I really need is one of them to be Amendola-lite and I’ll be happy with what I’ve drafted.  You’ll notice I drafted a bench TE…I know, I know I say not to draft one but hear me out!  Rudolph fell to me in the 11th which I felt was a great value if he can improve upon his 2012 line.  But then I heard Ertz calling my name.  I know I don’t have him ranked.  I get that.  I also have taken note that – despite the numbers not really being there preseason – Ertz has a shot to be lined up all around the field.  With Maclin out, I saw an opportunity to jump in early on what could be a major diamond in the rough.  Outside of that, my consolation of Griffin for not getting Gronk isn’t all that bad really.  Against my better judgement – his injury scares me too, people – I went for RGIII over RW3.  As much as I love DangerRuss, that Seattle team is a bit more balanced.  He might have a few quiet weeks here and there over the course of the season.  I don’t think I’ll have that issue with RGIII.  Final note, yes my bench is filled with weird hopes and dreams.  McCluster and Pettis are me listening to news outlets saying they’re a larger part of their respective offense then we give them credit for and I’m listening to them as I draft in the 15th and 16th round.  Those ‘ya never knows’ aren’t bad pickups until you have to decide on a DEF/K.  Oh and if Moreno is named the starter in Denver?  I’m gonna laugh really hard.  Not for gloating purposes, mind you.  Just at how ridiculous that situation was and is.  Ok, and a little gloating.  Keep in mind this draft happened Monday.  I had zero clue DeAngelo would be the lead back in Carolina.  Something tells me if I need to fill my WR needs, I have some reasonable trade chips at WR to expel.

Well there’s your Razzball Expert League  writeup and here’s the link to said league.  Go ahead, click around like you own the place.  What?  You think just cuz we label it ‘Expert’ we’re removed from the public eye?  Heck no!  We’re all open market for ridicule now, snitches!  And with that, for everyone at Razzball, this is your resident Fantasy Football expert signing out.

            I guess Yahoo thinks you’re going to go the whole year without a K and DEF.

    12 team keeper league. Keep at slotted draft spot first year but ADP 2nd year. 2 year max.
    Pick two keepers: Charles (3), Russ Wilson (8), David Wilson (14), Jimmy Graham (2).

    Hey sky, I’m a disgruntled Bell owner and have been trying to work through his injury for the last few days. My 2 remaining rb’s are forte and ivory, so I really feel the urgency to trade to attain an rb for my flex. One owner has offered me his Vincent Jackson and frank gore for my megatron…. I’m lukewarm on the deal since I know Calvin Is capable of winning me multiple matchups while the return players are just generally solid contributors. I was also thinking of offering an owner my megatron for his Cobb and Reggie bush. I have my doubts it will be accepted though. What are your thoughts? Should I shop Calvin in order to remain competitive? It’s a 12 team redraft. Thanks

    Qb – Brady
    Wr- Calvin
    Wr – roddy white
    Rb – forte
    Rb – bell
    Te – sudfeld
    Flex (r/w/t) – ivory
    Bench – deangelo Williams, Jared cook, Bryce brown, Christine Michael, ej Manuel, Reuben randle.

    Obviously I don’t think I can play a usable flex every week from the players on my bench. If I were I’d have to use deangelo. Thanks for your advice

    • Oppo Taco says:
      (link)

      Also do you think Josh Sudfeld can be a year long serviceable tight end for fantasy? I just offered Jared cook, roddy white and deangelo Williams to an owner for CJ?K and Pierre garçon. Reasonable trade? Or am I losing too much. Thanks again

      Jonathan Stewart went on the PUP list yesterday. DeAngelo Williams can be your flex until Bell recovers or you get a better RB via waivers

    Hey Sky,

    Solid starters. Excellent stable of RBs. Not sold on the bench. But like you said, upside. What’s up with Broyles? I can’t see the draft order, so I don’t know where you grabbed him. Playing opposite Calvin is a plus. But his health issues have me skerd. Where you just sticking to your rankings or did you go off script?

  5. btd says:
    (link)

    And how’d you get Trent and Lynch?! I thought that stuff doesn’t happen in ‘expert’ leagues?

    • A Hill O' Beans says:
      (link)

      @btd: Yeah Lynch going with the 19th pick is pretty crazy, PPR or not.

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @A Hill O’ Beans: That’s what I thought. Think people got a little too sucked into it being a 1 PPR league. If 2 of the 3 out of Tavon/Broyles/Wright turn into 90 rec receivers, I’m gonna be fine.

        • btd says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Yeah, if two of those pan out, you’ll be fine. Looking at the draft results, I probably would have gone a different route in the 5th considering you already had 3 RBs. But I know you have some pretty high expectations out of Ivory. So I get it. I probably would have gone Brady, Gronk, or Decker at that spot.

          Interesting that you grabbed Tavon Austin while TY Hilton was still on the board. Were you hoping that he’d fall to the next round? I believe you’ve got Hilton in the 20′s and Austin much lower.

          If Hopkins would have still been on the board in the 10th, would you have grabbed him instead of Wright? Or does the recent concussion worry you? I’m intersted in him in a 14 team keeper league and am trying to gauge where to take him.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            Gronk went the same round I got RG3. QB is too deep to chase when skill position players are still out there you like.

            I don’t see 100 rec upside with Hilton. Not getting a 95 rec stud changed my approach a bit but I was hoping he fell to me.

            I wanted Hopkins more then Wright but he got snagged right before me.

        • A Hill O' Beans says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Yeah, the guy was the #5 RB last year in PPR leagues, and the #6 RB the year before. Nothing has really changed this year except for the fact that you can trust him more at this point, and yet he’s drafted as the #14 back?

          Some people do go a little overboard when you change one league setting, like now they have to change all their rankings completely.

          As for the WR, I can’t see 2 out of 3 of those guys getting to 90 catches….maybe one of them. The team looks good though, RB strong for sure.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            Yeah zig when others zag. It just doesn’t skew things enough to redo rankings most times unless you’re debating over a guy like Sproles.

            We will see. Even if its 75-80 across the board I don’t mind them.

            • btd says:
              (link)

              @Sky: You can possibly play match ups to a degree (the team you think will be playing from behind the most from week to week).

    Sky,

    did you stick to your tiers as you went along or more feel when you had to make a decision with your pick? u mentioned Rudolph fell to you but was there a WR in a tier above you could have taken or were your positions filled?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I stuck to tiers and also to strategies/general need. For example, Tavon Austin I took before T.Y. Hilton but only because I needed big rec upside. I like Hilton as more of a Vincent Jackson type but that’s not gonna get me anywhere near 80 recs over the course of the year.

    Had my draft last night and was looking for some feedback.

    First time drafting in a 14 team league (.05 PPR). I like the team, but do not love it.
    I had the 1st overall pick.

    RB: Adrian Peterson (1)
    RB: Reggue Bush (3)
    WR: Randall Cobb (2)
    WR: DeSean Jackson (5)

    DST: Browns (12)
    K: David Akers (13)
    BN: Shane Vereen (7)
    BN: Emmanuel Sanders (9)

    BN: Kendall Wright (11)

      Good upside at WR and I like your QB a lot. Only problem may be RBs but in a 14 team league, you’ll just want to keep your eyes peeled for injuries/hedges along the way. Overall I like this team, though I probably wouldn’t have drafted a DEF/K at this point and just filled my bench with upside until you know who to drop. They’re streamable positions.

      • J Money says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Thanks for the feedback Sky. Besides being flexible, my plan was to not worry about back up backs too much because the flex is only WR/TE, but it seems I over looked that. I’ll definitely look for the next big RB on waivers once the season starts.

        I have never tried not drafting a DST and K before, but I may give that a go in my other league drafting tomorrow (it is not for money so I can afford to change my style).

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I understand and saw that. You have 3 for two spots which isn’t bad, I’m also assuming that RBs who were just as startable went for more reasonable prices. I might be wrong about that. I generally only want to spend $60 on my two starting RBs and split it however it seems right. SJax would’ve been my lead back in your scenario with a $20 one to chase it.

          DEF/K are streamable and the best/dominant ones are very often grabbed via waivers anyways. Not worth spending your time on them, just grab pie in the sky upside and see what you get.

    Hey Sky! Thanks for all of your efforts/work.

    I am in a keeper, salary cap league where the players salaries are basically the average ESPN auction values (with a few exceptions, but mostly irrelevant for my question for you). I am trying to decide between keeping Ryan or Kaepernick (I’d like to keep both but I am over the salary cap and can’t justify it as it would reduce my overall team value at a position like RB or WR)…I will list out my current roster for your comment below. I have reviewed your TOP 20 QBs (and would have posted this in the comments there but they are closed), and see based on your projections, that Kaep is about 10 pts lower than Ryan (this seems to be in the noise, in my opinion). My gut instinct is to keep Kaep as I think that he has a higher ceiling (perhaps he won’t obtain it this year, but I’d like to see it come to fruition next year or the year after) and he is younger. My hesitation is the obvious; Kaep has less than 1 season under his belt and his WR corp is less than optimal.

    What are your thoughts?

    QB – Kaep, Ryan
    RB – Martin, CJ2K, Wilson, LMiller, Hillman, BTate
    WR – Julio, Fitz, Cobb, TSmith, MAustin, DMoore (likely a salary cut casualty also)
    TE – VDavis
    PK – TBD
    D – TBD

    Dropping Ryan will put me under the $200 salary cap, and allow me to participate in the rookie/FA draft. I have the 1.02 pick in our upcoming rookie/FA draft. My inclination is to go with a RB, likely Bernard as his value appears to be the best (only $4.6) and I think that he may have the best keeper potential moving forward.

    Any comments would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks again -
    Steve

      @steve:

      I should mention that it’s a h2h, 10 team league with a team roster size of 16. So dropping Ryan, and adding Bernard (as well as TBD team D and PK) puts me at 16.

      Keep Kaep. When talking rankings, I’m ranking for this year and in reality, I mentioned Kaep was almost in the ZZ Top tier which is above Ryan. Take the upside chance and go after an RB.

      • steve says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Cool, thanks.

        In terms of keeper leagues (so this year and beyond), how do you rank the Rookie RBs? Sorry if I missed this somewhere in the Razzball Football content. Feel free to just point me in the right direction, if this is the case.

        Most ‘perts opinions seemed to go like this (before the Bell injury, which I now see that Tomlin is suggesting that it might not be as bad as originally reported)…

        Current year: Bell (I believe mostly due to opportunity), Lacy or Bernard, Ball
        Dynasty: Bernard, Lacy or Bell, Ball

        Depending on the Bell injury, I could see him dropping to last on the list for the current year, but I have included him in the conversation as he may not actually be needed on my team this year.

          Murph covers Rookie RB rankings. If you hover over the rankings tab, Murph has both dynasty rankings and specific positional rookie rankings out. Bell’s injury has him out at 6-8 weeks right now so he’d slide if I’m planning to compete this year. Lacy then Gio for me but it’s pretty close/interchangable for this year. Dynasty I’d lean Gio out of them all.

            @steve: @Sky:

            One additional question…

            Do you take Gio over TAustin in a keeper league? I’d have to be a bit more creative in my roster since TAustin’s value is $7.0 as compared to Gio at $4.8 but I could probably make it work.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Long term, WRs are always the better bet for career longevity but I also don’t think Tavon is Megatron over here. I’d give Gio a go.

    Sky, Many thanks for your auction values. I used them as a guide (going higher or lower at my discretion, obviously) during drafting and am relatively happy with my squad. Wanted to get your thoughts on my squad (12 tm, no PPR):

    QB Robert Griffin III 20
    RB Doug Martin 57
    RB Steven Jackson 41
    WR Marques Colston 22
    WR DeSean Jackson 10
    TE Rob Gronkowski 27
    FLEX Brian Hartline 5
    D/ST Texans D/ST 1
    K Stephen Gostkowski 1
    BE Ahmad Bradshaw 7
    BE Lance Moore 2
    BE Matt Schaub 2
    BE Chris Givens 2
    BE Bilal Powell 1
    BE LeGarrette Blount 1
    BE Joseph Randle 1

    I got a lot of comments from the peanut gallery about my S-Jax and Gronk picks. I will drop Blount or Randle for a TE while Gronk is out.

      No prob, glad they were of some use to you.

      Overall, you went pretty money heavy on your starting RBs and it looks like your bench got dinged for that a bit. Per my auction strategy, that’s not a route I’d go but I like the values you got at other positions overall. Just seems like a team thin at RB for a 12 teamer but hopefully with some FA moves you can make up for that.

  12. Giant Gigantes says:
    (link)

    Those report cards are flat out humorous. Mine says I had the most projected pts for the “first half” of the draft but has me ranked 9th outta 10. Then the 2nd place projected team has the lowest projected for the top half of his team but the highest for the bottom half?! Does yahoo know the starters are a bit more important than your bench? If you don’t draft a top K or a top D you turn into Bart Simpson

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ha! Yeah, in general, I just ignore those kinds of things. The fact I have 5 startable RBs with Stew on the PUP list makes me laugh even harder. I’ll make trades as needed to improve at WR, which feels like the only area I’m hurting in. I’m very comfortable with the team I drafted.

    I’ve been stuck on this for a bit. A roster construction question:

    10-team, PPR league with three keepers. I’m keeping Lynch for a fifth-rounder and Julio Jones for a 14th-rounder.

    Do I take David Wilson in the 16th (last pick) or RG3 in the seventh?

    Wilson is the better value, but then I’m stuck with two RBs who don’t catch passes. He also might not play more than 50 percent of the Giants’ snaps, whereas RG3 could very conceivably be a top 5 — if not top 3 — QB for the year.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      David Wilson doesn’t catch passes? Don’t think that’s necessarily the case. I think you can get RGIII back in the draft if you want him. David Wilson’s going to go much higher and be harder to get if you want him. I’d lean Wilson there.

  15. Rags says:
    (link)

    Keeper league. Standard scoring, except the D/ST get return yardage, and there are a few other quirks that make Defenses score higher than usual. I’m keeping Kaepernick in the 15th. I get three more.

    RGIII (4th round)
    Tony Gonzalez (6th)
    Rashard Mendenhall (9th)
    David Wilson (6th)
    Chicago D/ST (13th)
    Darren Sproles (5th)

    I’m leaning towards taking the 3 RBs, even though I don’t particularly like Mendenhall. I have the 9th pick overall.

    I could take a WR1 with my first pick unless a stellar RB falls, grab a second round RB. Then focus on WR and TE for the rest of the draft.

      Yeah, go with your RBs; they make sense for your team.

      Team looks solid. Good bench RB/WR depth. My minor quibble would be taking Luck already having Wilson. Seems like overkill since you only start 1 QB. I’d look to move him and an RB for an upgrade at RB, personally, but I like your team overall.

        @Sky: Thanks Sky!!! I did it cause I got burned with Rivers last yr and wanna try the two QB thing in ONE draft. I easily could of taken Bradford in RD 14. Anyhow, I will most likely move him. Sounds like te ultimate goal with QB security. Thanks.

        Ps: I kinda follow your ranking, ye have faith. Haha.

          Haha thanks! Yeah I understand that, though I’d be surprised if either guy doesn’t pan out for this year. Good luck!

    I just posted this in the rankings blog, but I guess this one’s more current:

    Do you like Dobson as a stash?

    Some think Brady’s offense is going to go down, I’m on the side that thinks it stays the same and a bunch of no-names get better.

        @Sky: getting there is going to be a bitch, trying to figure how to pull the drive off, not sure I want to do the 13 hour drive in a day. trying to set up places to crash on the way

          Ouch, yeah 13 hours is a B for sure. I just did 9 hours to Idaho so I feel your pain but at least I had a wife who said she’d drive (she didn’t).

            @Sky: yeah my imaginary friend is the same way as your wife…..I am probably going to stay in Redding (an easy 8 hour drive) on Thursday, then do the last 4-5 on friday. Give me some time on Friday to actually do something in Eugene…..wait is there anything to do in Eugene?

                @Sky: I gave up my bongo career many burning man’s ago. The best things I did in Eugene, besides smoke pot and drink, was ahhhh umh…..oh I got it, a used bookstore and some pretty tasty fish spot with these really good waffle cut fries. Do you work every Friday?

                      Gotcha, I could probably get out around 2 or 3 that day most likely. That’d give you a chance to set up in the hotel and for your full body wax.

    LT Alex Barron, LG Lucas Nix, C Stefan Wisniewski, RG Andre Gurode, RT Khalif Barnes. Holy hell. That’s the Raiders’ projected opening day O-line. Only Wisniewski is even league average. I’m not touching McFadden with a 10 foot pole.

      Yeah, where I’ve ranked him he won’t be on any of my teams either. OAK has about 3-5 years of work ahead of them to even regain respectable.

    Sky, this is a follow-up to answer your question from the other day. This is a league that only requires you play QB, RB, WR, WR, WR/RB, WR/TE, DST, K. It is heavily weighted towards receivers.

    12-team 2 Keeper PPR league. I have picks #2 and #6 in the first round and I am being offered McCoy for pick #6. My current keepers are Forte and S. Jax. Should I do this trade?

    What are your top 3 lineups from the list below?
    A) Forte, McCoy, Graham, Amendola
    B) Forte, S. Jax, Graham, Marshall
    C) Forte, McCoy, S. Jax, Wayne
    D) Forte, S. Jax, AJ Green, Bryant
    E) Forte, McCoy, Marshall, Wilson

    Why do you think Gronk Fell all the way to the 6th? Most people are raking him as a 4th rounder, and I always heard experts went high risk/reward in industry leagues.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      I’ve seen him ranked as low as 69th on yahoo. We went pretty RB heavy early on which leaves you needing WR around the time he goes. I haven’t seen him go that early so far.

    I just drafted tonight– 16 team PPR keeper league (keep 2). Any feedback taking into account league size/settings? I’m feeling pretty good aside from my J Stewart selection. You seem to be higher on Ivory than anybody else. I hope you’re right!

    QB Ben Roethlisberger
    WR Calvin Johnson
    WR AJ Green
    WR Chris Givens
    RB Frank Gore
    RB Chris Ivory
    TE Tyler Eifert
    Flex Cecil Shorts
    K: EMPTY
    DEF: EMPTY
    Bench: Andre Brown, Kendall Wright, Jonathan Stewart, Knile Davis, Justin Forsett, Lance Dunbar, EJ Manuel, Andre Ellington

      Haha, I hope I’m right about Ivory too! Have him everywhere…16 teamers always make you thin somewhere. Your WRs are awesome but you’re gonna need some injuries for depth at RB but that’s not surprising given the size of the league. Like the guys you have. Plenty of upside at all your positions. Well done!
