    Official Fantasy Football Thread

    I think we should have a season long thread for fantasy football questions. I had an auction draft Saturday night, not a fan of that format, league manager has no clue what he's doing (but thinks he know it all) and it takes forever but I think I got a decent team out of it.

    PPR; QB, RB-2, WR-2, Flex, TE, D , K

    My team is :
    Newton
    RG3
    Reggie Bush
    Chris Johnson
    Alfred Morris
    Mcfadden
    Vareen
    Woodhead
    Fitzgerald
    J. Nelson
    Cecil Shorts
    Tavon Austin
    Sudfield
    Packers
    Gould

    Thoughts?

    Re: Official Fantasy Football Thread

    Pretty solid team. I had my draft last night and its old school they only go by yards for points. So my question is out of my receivers: Jordy Nelson, Hakeem Nicks, Vernon Davis, Brian Hartline, Kenbrell Thompkins, and Kenny Stills. Which 3 stand best chance? Jordy and Nicks for sure.

    and then IDK. I do not trust Vernon Davis with CK as the quarterback. I had him on my team last year, and he was worthless down the stretch after the switch.

    To the OP, unless they can force a ton of turnovers the Packers D is going to be awful. I say this as a Pack fan, who was incredibly disappointed to not get Eddie Lacy, but they will not be good at stopping ANYBODY this year. I envision a couple games where they probably score you negative points.

    I'm hoping Sudfield can produce, I picked him up later in a couple of drafts.

    Standard league I'd go Lamar Miller. RB is a safer (and usually better) play in standard leagues.

    Re: Official Fantasy Football Thread

    Unrelated to your guys' draft, but in my league with some buddies I'm about to complete a trade for his Demaryius Thomas and David Wilson for Wes Welker and Fred Davis.

    Yes that's the biggest steal of a trade ever.

    Re: Official Fantasy Football Thread

    Thought I had a good trade going. I was gettting A.J. Green, he was getting Lamar Miller & Miles Austin. (I already have Doug Martin, Stevan Ridley, & Demarco Murray) - 12 team league.

    Buttttt, apparently 4 people in the league vetoed the trade so it didn't go thru. Seriously? Isn't the veto capability there to avoid total trade-rapes? It's not like I was giving him Knowshon Moreno for his stud WR, he's the one who offered it in the 1st place!

    Am I the only one who thinks this is a total over-use of the veto power in fantasy football?!? It's ridiculous..
