    I paid $150 to join the league (friends/work). 12 team league....

    2 RB
    3 WR
    1 TE
    1 Def
    1 Kicker
    6 bench

    Prizes
    1st- $1000
    2nd- $500

    I have been in this league for four years. Very competitive and there are no dummies, Most everyone knows what they are doing. This is my team. I had the 9th pick....(Snake Draft) I went after sure talent with little upside. Frank Gore is my wildcard. I can't believe I got Portis in the second round of a twelve team league.

    I absolutely hate your running backs lol, like every single one of them.

    The only one I like is Portis since you got him in the second round. I stayed away from Gore in all of my leagues. For some reason I just don't trust him.

    Your receivers are pretty good, Holt is probably gonna be declining but still should put up solid numbers.

    Great D, decent kicker and hopefully Daniels can catch a few more TDs this year.

    Gore was a tough decicon. It was between him or lynch, but I think with the new offense, he's gonna get alot of touches. The niners offense has to be better than last year. It was one of the worst offenses I have ever seen and he still rushed for 1000 yrds and scored 6 td's.

    I think you made the right decision. I had Gore last year, and I wasn't exactly happy with him by the end of the season (traded him, in fact, late in the season). But with a Martz offense, you can expect better things out of him, especially with throwing him the ball. Good if you're in a PPR league.

    Your team looks solid, up and down. Your WR3 spot is a bit sketchy. Bowe would be a stud on any other team with a decent QB. Your team would be even stronger with 1 flex instead of WR3.

    I get .5 for each reception. So that should help. I also had Gore last year and he pretty much killed me. But I think it was more the Offensive Coordinator and Alex Smith that did him in.

    I agree with that on Gore. I picked 6th in our league, and if people had picked the way I thought they were, I was going to have a tough decision about taking him or Barber. Thankfully, things didn't go by the script and I got Jackson at 6.

    And .5 PPR is PERFECT. When our league added PPR years back, we did 1 PPR, and that was just too much. .5 is just right. 1 PPR turns possession receivers into monsters, and that was just a wee bit unbalanced. Oh, and I had Domanick Davis that year...Carr dump offs were like the cash register ringing up another sale.
