How did you get David and Michael Thomas? You will win a lot of games with that team.


#3

Thanks! I hope so. I got lucky I guess. My first team ever playing PPR. How can I improve my team?


#4

Try and make trades for some RB depth. Making Moncrief or Decker for a RB on the bench barring any injury.


#5

That is a really, really strong team, with the one significant exception of RB depth. Only having three on the roster (3 I really like, btw) is reeaaaally risky, considering one of them isn’t the starter, and the significant injury risk RBs pose.


#6

I noticed I only listed 5 bench spots in my post and therefore forgot all about Doug Martin. Does this change your opinion of lack of RB depth? I know he is suspended the first 3 games and now after the Bucs vs. Dolphins game is being cancelled week 1, I won’t have him back till week 5. But I will have him eventually. Please let me know what you think, thanks!

Thanks again for taking the time guys, ya’ll are awesome!


#8

I noticed I only listed 5 bench spots in my post as an error and therefore forgot all about Doug Martin but he won’t play till the 5th week.


#9

It does. Still pretty thin, but definitely better.


#10

Definitely decent. Don’t listen to all the talk about thin at RB, yes 5 is ideal but I don’t think some ppl realize how hard certain leagues are to get 5 rb’s that actually matter. In my 10 man i could either reach for a rb i’d rather not play anyway or keep scooping up elite WR’s that I can always trade for an RB later. if you have 4 that don’t suck you’re good. IMO if you’re needing something beyond top 3 your season is in jeopardy of failure anyway.

I agree that 4 is fine, if they’re all solid. My concern is that it’s actually 3 for the first 4 weeks, and one of the 3 doesn’t have a guaranteed work load. That is thin. I love literally all of those backs (I have Martin and Henry on the same team in several leagues), but I’d feel better with one more, even if it’s a lower end guy (Burkhead, Quiz, Hill etc). I certainly wouldn’t drop anyone of note to do it, but Anderson may be expendable, of anyone interesting is available (Burkhead especially is interesting, and somehow still fairly widely unowned).
