Thoughts on my team

Postby slaughterrt » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:08 pm

Cross posting this in the Team Advice section as well, to get some offense advice as well.

This is for my team in the signature. This will be the second season. My team is built to win now, and finished 12-2 last year (but got bounced last year in round one...the game ended up in a tie and I lost the tie-breaker).

Traded away Matt Ryan and my 2018 and 2019 round one picks for Andrew Luck. I know I know. The jury is still out but I’m hoping Luck can come back strong.

My IDP is a bit rough, and since it’s a balanced IDP scoring league, I’m gonna need any help that I can get.

I think I am OK at DE and DT but would like to improve. I like my starting LBs but most of my depth are crap shoots. My CBs and S are mostly just guys I have tried to stream off waivers.

We start on defense:
DE
DE
DT
DE/DT flex
LB
LB
LB
CB
CB
S
CB/S flex

Help me out guys.

As far as IDP, I love your DLinemen. S & LB are rough. Can you post a link to the waiver wire?

There’s not a ton out there in a 16 teamer with 53 man rosters, but take a look.

Definitely grab Samson Ebukam if your league rewards sacks. For now, he's a starting OLB there.

Josh Bynes is currently the starting MLB in AZ, and they don't have much behind him. Could be this year's Jon Bostic.

Kurt Coleman to me is a must-add. He will most likely be the SS in New Orleans, although there's a chance he's a part time guy (like Ward in Tampa last year)

I'd also take a peek at one of the Washington safeties, either Everett or Nicholson.

Some solid CB options, especially Quincy Wilson & Teez Tabor.

Do adds cost any money, or is it just a waivers?

Lukky what are your thoughts of Christian Jones in DET this year? I thought he played pretty well last season, and was reluctant to drop him one of my leagues, I think he can put up numbers. He scored 220+ points in said league last season, which is respectable

I strongly believe he was only signed to be a backup/part time player.
