My Fantasy Team
Figured I would post it just to see what you guys think.
QB's: Marc Bulger, Micheal Vick
RB's: Larry Johnson, Willie Parker, Deuce McCallister
WR's: Marvin Harrison, Andre Johnson, TJ Houshmanzadeh, Joe Jurevicious
TE: Jeremy Shockey, Kellen Winslow
K: John Kasay
DEF/ST: Seahawks, Bengals
My league requires 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 DEF. to start and the rest as backups.
I absolutely love Willie Parker and took him pretty early. It was really either him, Julius Jones, Willis McGahee, Dominick Davis, and backs like that left, and I took a risk with Parker since he was ranked much lower, but I have seen what he can do even with the Bus there last year. Plus Duce ran for 21 yards on 11 carries in the last pre season.
I took Larry Johnson as an obvious 1st round, 1st pick, grabbed Marvin Harrison over Chad Johnson and Torry Holt, since I am afraid of Carson getting hurt and Torry is hurt as well. Steve Smith was also available but that hamstring has really been bothering him and he is a speed receiver, if he loses a step he wont be as dominant. Andre Johnson was someone I really didn't want but I took him in like the 5th round and at that point couldn't pass him up, he should have a better season this year with an improved offensive line and such. Houshmanzadeh was my sleeper last year and he will be this year, great all around player.PharmD

looks pretty good, might look to trade one of your qb's for a wr though....i just had my draft today i think i ended up pretty good:
qb: k. warner and b. leftwich
rb: LT, c. benson,c. taylor,m. anderson, r. droughns
wr:chad johnson, l fitzgerald, a. johnson(didnt want him either but it was to late to pass him up) j. horn
Te: j. witten, vernon davis
K- m. vanderjagt(might drop right away)

IMO, aside from LJ, I'm not sold on Deuce or Willie, both who could end up being vary shakey backs... Although I must admit that the upside on Willie has been good lately in terms of him getting goalline carries at least in the start.
Michael Vick will be a fantasy nightmare... too much statistical variation. Find out if you can get another QB. I think Kitna would be a better option if he's available.
I actually like your WRs and think that it's one of the strong points if you can get a better backup than Jurevicius.

Haha you are forgetting those are backups bro. I picked up deuce in like the 7th round, there really wasn't anyone else left to pick. Same thing with jurevicious, he was picked up in the 12th round lol. Houshmanzadeh is my true backup receiver and could be my number 2if andre johnson sucks, which he probably will. Vick is a fantasy nightmare but a great backup because some teams he goes WILD on.Originally Posted by NYhomeboy

Oh nice I thought you started 3 WRs... pretty solid then man. Look into Wali Lundy if you've got any roster space. He's my pick for this year's Willie Parker/Samkon Gado. You know Kubiak's gonna be successful in the run game and my hunch is that Wali starts the first 3-4 games. Hahaha as a Saints fan I can tell you that it's always a good move to start Vick vs. the Saints...

QB D. McNabb (Phi - QB)
WR L. Fitzgerald (Ari - WR)
WR Ro. Williams (Det - WR)
WR T. Houshmandzadeh (Cin - WR)
RB E. James (Ari - RB)
RB C. Williams (TB - RB)
TE A. Gates (SD - TE)
BN K. Jones (Det - RB)
BN V. Davis (SF - TE)
BN B. Favre (GB - QB)
BN J. Porter (Oak - WR)
BN B. Leftwich (Jac - QB)
K S. Graham (Cin - K)
DEF New York (NYG - DEF)
BN Miami (Mia - DEF)
This is just one of my teams. Actually the first one I did, I am thinking Leftwich or McNabb will be the #1 QB. While I let Farve sit and see if he has the magic this year or not. For some reason I think he might, just because hes Brett Farve. I wish I had room for Vernon Davis somewhere but Gates is definitly starting over him. Jones and Porter as backups isnt too bad either.

McNabb will definitely be your starter more than likely. Jax has looked HORRIBLE in the preseason protecting Leftwich and Leftwich gets sacked a lot! He is a solid backup for you though for sure. There are probably going to be weeks that you have TJ Housh. starting over R Williams too, Housh has had a great preseason and damn did he do me good last year!
Pretty solid team, how many people are in your league? Seems like a lot of people didn't know how to draft lol because you got a lot of strong players. Gates will probably lose a ****load of catches this year unfortunately due to Philip Rivers who is still young though.
Look for that NYG defense to be rock solid this year as well .

Yeah I am not sold on McNabb or Leftwich though. I get to start 3 WR's, so Housh gets to start as well. I think its 12 team league, its just a yahoo public league. I honestly missed teh draft, but preranked my players, and came back with a better team than expected. Hopefully they can all stay healthy.Originally Posted by LakeMountD

Willie Parker is gonna have a huge year bro with no Bus vulturing goal line TD's.....Your 2 RB's are the bomb....your WR are nice too....Lundy is a nice Waiver Wire pick up...i got him last night...he could very well be this years Willie Parker....look into Chester Taylor if u can....he might be the next Fantasy Priest Holmes

Hehe yeah I picked up Lundy two days ago off waivers. Yeah my bro in law got C. Taylor so I didn't get a chance with that. I wont start Lundy in the first game because the texans are so unbelievably horrible but I will gauge his progress and maybe trade him if he becomes hot along with johnson for a better receiver and a low end rbOriginally Posted by Oswizle

Sorry Larry Johnson owners. Herman Edwards is going to ruin the Chiefs offense. D1ck Vermeil is a offensive genius (see Rams,Chiefs). Herm Edwards will give you good soundbytes but he shouldn't be coaching in the NFL.

That's awesome, they are also on my keeper roster with underrated Brad Johnson backing them upOriginally Posted by Big Matt

agreed, the jags lose Jimmy Smith and they do nothing to address the WR position. Matt Jones might be good for a couple big plays a year, but he is no #1 reciever. Del Rio is a bonehead in the redzone.Originally Posted by LakeMountD
