    Let's get some serious FFL talk going...
    I could use some advice and thought why not... maybe people would come forward and ask their own questions...

    Ok. I'm in a 10 team league. Non PPR. Scoring listed here.
    http://fantasy.nfl.com/league/354433/settings

    Here's my team

    QB - P. Rivers
    RB - M. Turner, M. Ingram, T. Jones, A. Peterson, D. Thomas, M. Tolbert
    WR - V. Jackson, R. White, M. Williams, L. Evans
    TE - M. Lewis
    K - M. Crosby
    D/ST - Jets

    Now what do you all think? Should I package up a trade? What are the strengths/weaknesses. How do you rate this team, 1-10?

    Here's the Waiver Wire link (I enjoy getting in depth with folks).

    Here's everyone's depth charts. Not that mine is different there than it is here because my previous trades won't clear until tomorrow.

    Feel free to ask your questions, I'll help out how I can. I know it's early for moves, but this one is free and I'm having fun with it.

    A. Peterson and M. Turner? What kind of league are you playing in when you can get two top 6 players on one team?

    I traded V. Davis for V. Jax...
    I traded D. Bowe & P. Harvin for R. White because the guy who had Roddy only had Steve Smith (NYG/PHI) and as we all know, he's hurt.

    I also had the 1st overall pick in my draft, plus it was a snake draft so with the 20th pick I grabbed Michael Turner, and then Philip Rivers.

    It worked so well because this league drafted BEFORE free agency. No one knew who was hurt or who was going where.

    I was able to monopolize on the unknown by drafting smart.

    Its hard to talk seriously about FF when your league lets Turner fall to the 20th pick. I cant see him falling out of the top 10 in any type of competitive league.

    Not that far fetch'd when the League's own default ratings are like so:

    Adrian Peterson
    Chris Johnson
    Arian Foster
    Michael Vick
    Aaron Rodgers
    Jamaal Charles
    Ray Rice
    LeSean McCoy
    Tom Brady
    Darren McFadden
    Andre Johnson
    Maurice Jones-Drew
    Rashard Mendenhall
    Frank Gore
    Roddy White
    Michael Turner

    Only a few people were actually there for the draft. Sorry that this deems me ineligible for serious football talk.

    strong team, my advice is stashing a guy with upside on your roster in place of lee evans, randell cobb is going to get more and more playing time as the year goes on, and look out for taylor price on the pats i think he is a player and will fill in once branch and ocho go down(and they will). also watch for the number 2 guys on bad teams like the panthers, edwards and nannee(SP?)

    3 WRs or Flex?

    In either case, that's a sick team.
    And it's not your fault that you drafted with a bunch of idiots. What even semi-serious player drafts on autopilot?

    The team 's starting lineup is QB / WR / WR / RB / RB / WR-RB / TE

    Turner is not a top 6 player.

    You clearly haven't looked at many mock drafts then. I haven't seen Truner go in the top ten one time (perhaps once). He is going in the 13-16 range.

    Hmm...I've drafted in 4 leagues so far, and Turner has gone top 10 in every single one.

    I guess it depends on the scoring system, I could see him slipping to late in the 2nd in a PPR league but he said it is a non PPR league.

    I dont see how you can have Brady, MJD, or Gore rated above Turner. to me McFadden, Mendenhall, Johnson and White are iffy in a non PPR league as well. I guess you could say Vick and Rogers should be in the list though.
