Given the Colt O-line’s turnstile impersonation of the past few weeks, I don’t blame you for grabbing some QB insurance at the end of your draft. Luck could break in half and soon, but if he doesn’t, that O-line’s play doesn’t exactly help his fantasy production, does it? Plus, Andy’s all high on Taylor – though I’m not has high on hm as Andy, he presents good reasons for it. So if that was the most attractive pick after you had pretty much set your team, then why not go for it?
These draft grade websites – yahoo included – rely on simplistic algorithms. Everyone here who is saying that your low grade is because of the numbers of players at each position is right.
I like your team, but like everyone else here is saying, you do need more RBs. I love the Fournette, Howard, Lynch trifecta. You got value for Howard at 2.7. His ADP is 2.4. And you’ve got a good – not great, but pretty darned good – bunch of pass catchers. So I can see why you were stoked with this team before you got your yahoo grade.
It seems a shame to release any one of these guys just to pick up a low level RB for the sake of having more than 3.
Personally, I would first identify the guy I would drop if RB depth became available (either Tyrod or one of those WRs at the end of your bench). Then I’d make sure there’s no low-hanging-RB fruit on the waiver wire (Powell was available in one of my leagues last week…surprised me). If there isn’t, then I’d take a wait-and-see approach. A couple / three weeks of regular season football might clarify which guy to drop and which RB you want to claim.
You were ready to roll with this team until Yahoo gave you a D. While you do need to tweak it, it’s a really good start on a good season.
