    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]Draft is the most important thing[/quote]

    No it's not adaptability is the most important thing.





    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]When would it not make sense to grab 3 RBs if u only have 2 WRs to start?[/quote]</p>

    When the WR you could grab is better then Any RB that's currently available? It's almost as though you see flex as Automatic RB start...RB's and WR's score pretty much the same amount of fantasy points now, there is no reason to start a RB over a WR in the Flex....(and vica versa) you should just start(and draft) the one who is the best value.
    </p>


    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]You said it yourself that NFL is a passing game so plug and playing 2 WRs wpould be the easiest thing to do.[/quote]</p>

    And adding a 3rd one into the Flex instead of a RB also makes sense!

    you say that as if it means anything, I picked 3 RB's because they were the best players available at my point in the draft, if there was a better WR available I would have went that way...

    the point is WR's and RB's are interchangeable....it didn't used to be that way but it is now.

    Calvin Johnson and and Arian Foster are equal....as far as value, there is no reason to draft 3 RB's immediately whan you could draft 2 WR's and 1 RB and get better players.

    people only do it because it's conventional wisdom...it makes no sense, you are deciding to vote against the flex because you think there is only way to draft if it is there because of some old conventional wisdom that no longer applies.

    to be honest I don't care one way or another It just irks me that you are basing your decision off of something that doesn't make any sense.

    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]everybody would just wait on WRs for the most part[/quote]

    Ok MMB question, 3rd round, Flex League, you have an option of picking.

    Roy Helu or Mike Wallace

    who do you pick.

    I know I'm going with Wallace....but I suppose you would go with Roy Helu because you just "have" to get three RB's **** the fact that Wallace scores more points and will help your team more...he's a receiver so you can't pick him yet right?

    you are ******ed....and the reason you hate the flex makes no sense...if it made sense I wouldn't care but it makes no sense.

    [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"]its what always happens and u'd be stupid not to. Thats why it makes the league less competitive.[/quote]

    you'd be stupid to pick a lower value RB instead of a higher value WR....Value is always where it's at in the draft...look at "Reese" :P

    the 3 RB theory was key back in the day when every team had one work horse....that's not the case anymore and thus the theory no longer holds true.

    no you wouldn't because u may not get that WR next round but odds are you'll probably be able to find a comparable WR. Too many receivers out there getting points to just mandatory start ionly 2 WRs.</p>[/quote]

    yes you would because drafting 3 top flight receivers is better then drafting 2 top flight receivers and 1 mediocre RB.

    it's almost as if you would reccomend starting a BAD RB in the Flex over a good WR in the flex just because...well it's a running back....which is ******ed...

    the flex lets you start 3 WR's too if you want...so if the 3 best players you can get are receivers why not get them...why get worse players just because of their positions?

    For the sake of an orderly transition, may I suggest that Matt start the new THEE thread on Monday, July 22nd. That way there is no confusion. Does this make sense?

    [quote user="Morehead State"][quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="Morehead State"] Deciding who to start is no challenge.[/quote]

    you don't take into account who your players are playing against? of course there is challenge in who to start week to week.

    [quote user="Morehead State"] the challenge is building your team, monitoring the league and having some imagination on who to pick up and who to drop. It means knowing the schedule, who's got what opponents down the road. Who's got bye's coming up. etc..... You win with preparation, not game time decisions.[/quote]

    I would say are both equal, paying attention the day of to see if someone is a late scratch...whether it be your #2 WR for example...or just as important say you have a #2 WR going up against revis so you decide to sit him but that day Revis is scratched....you have time to go in and re-start your #2 guy.

    Game day decisions are just as important as your draft over the long run, just like your Free Agent picks are just as important as well, the draft is obviously important, but being able to make decisions week to week and being able to recover from injuries the the free agent market are just as important.
    [/quote] Game day decisions are the easiest part of FF. Its having the right players to choose from that's the challenge. Using the waiver wires properly, beating other players to free agents. etc... This is the hard part and the part that needs the most attention. The best thing you did last year was pick up Cam Newton. Best thing I did was trade for Matt Stafford. Deciding to start Stafford wasn't hard. Getting him was.[/quote] </P>


    best move I made was picking upKabar Bell !!</P>
