based around this site:
^^^ that is the Rotten Tomatoes or FF...they take rankings from all the major sites on the internet and create an average.
.5 PPR naturally puts a bit more emphasis on WRs and the people in this league have it in their head that RBs are what is needed to win the WRs "fall" easier.
Last year I won with Shonn Greene and Spiller (who was injured half the year) as my starting RBs...My team was carried by Brees, Dez who caught fire, and Vincent Jackson.
This year I have 3 WR1s
all pretty much locks for 1,500+ yards...and honestly I think Calvin not seeing the endzone last year was a bit of a fluke...I think he is going to have another record type year this year.
on top of that I have Rodgers who will get me 30 points a game with their crap defense...although I had him and Brees rated pretty much equal, so I would have waited had I known that Brees would drop that far.
People in this league underrate QBs drastically...and EVERY SINGLE YEAR you hear the "QB is so deep this year!"...no it isn't...there are 4 "lock" elites and the rest are risk/reward types
The difference last year between Rodgers and Big Ben? 352 points to 231 points...that is 121 points...which is almost 10 points a game. That is absolutely HUGE. Just choose Ben because he was one of the last QBs taken in our league.
I'll post my big board later...(it's kind of funny how I ranked some NFCE players)
