16-T PPR Draft: Thomas D. Johnson


Spina

Recommended Posts

If you clicked this you're probably asking, "Who the hell is Thomas D. Johnson??"

 

You'll see in a second....

 

Let me know what you think? My strengths/weaknesses...whatever....wasn't feeling it at all when I left the draft.

 

It's grown on me.

 

3rd Pick of 16 (PPR): David Johnson

QB: Cam Newton

WR: Demaryius Thomas

WR: Corey Coleman

WR: Michael Thomas

RB: David Johnson

RB: Duke Johnson, Jr.

TE: Julius Thomas

FX: Chris Ivory

D: NY Jets

 

Bench: Will Fuller, Braxton Miller, Ted Ginn, Jr., Jared Cook, Chris Johnson, Tyler Gaffney, Khiry Robinson

 

 

- David Johnson was the easy pick for me at 3 in a PPR -- like everyone else, think he's about to have a monster.

- Was praying Demaryius Thomas made it all the way back to me in the 2nd as the 17th(!) WR off the board -- he's criminally undervalued coming off a "bad year" with 105 receptions and over 1300yds. The QB situation in Denver was awful later year too. He'll put up his numbers. Probably better.

- Aaron Rodgers was my pick on the turn in the 3rd but was taken right before me -- "settled" for Cam Newton. Initially was disappointed but it's grown on me. He'll be fun to watch and root for. I refuse to Dab though.

- In PPR I'm a believer in the breakout of Duke Johnson -- he'll catch 60-70 balls, with increased carries and a chance to be the true featured back in Cleveland. As my RB2 in a PPR I was happy to have him.

- Loved Julius Thomas' value this year -- think he gets back to, or close to the 10 TD-level this year. That offense should be pretty good.

- Being a season-ticket-holder for the Jets and an obvious homer, I had to have Chris Ivory for what his value was -- love watching his bruising style. He'll score a ton of TDs and will prove to be a steal. As my Flex in a 16-Team? Sign me up.

- I have four rookies and Ted Ginn, Jr. fighting for my WR2/WR3 spots: Corey Coleman, Michael Thomas, Will Fuller, Braxton Miller  

- Liked the upside and change of scenery for Jared Cook - think he finally reaches his potential with the likes of Aaron Rodgers

- Chris Johnson - DJ handcuff

- Tyler Gaffney - looked good splitting 1st-Team reps. He's a wait and see. Any backs in 16-T with a chance is worth a flier.

- Khiry Robinson - last pick, first to go but could get goaline looks for the Jets.

 

 

Would love to hear what you think? 

 

Keep in my 16-Team Leagues are a different kinda beast -- be critical, but keep that in mind.

 

 

(in no way did I plan on all the Johnson's/Thomas')

....and yes, I know I have two Jaguars and two Browns in my line-up. Not good BUT i think those players produce.

 

Curious to hear opinions on my rookie WRs....

Im not a firm believer in Duke Johnson this season for as long as RG3 is healthy. So having him as your RB2 in a PPR worries me. Would much rather have a guy like Charles Sims. I probably would have waited on QB and took a WR there. I like the Thomas and sort of like Coleman, but starting one of them week 1 is very concerning IMO. I would look for a trade partner to grab a solid WR. Maybe try to trade Cam for a WR2 and lower end QB. Thanks for the help on mine

For a 16 team league that is actually very strong. I think your WR group might need a little help though after DT. Honestly, I could consider trading Cam to upgrade your WR. You could probably still get a lot for him and you can find a decent replacement.

Thanks for the input, but if I wanted a WR2 instead of the NFL MVP I would have drafted one there -- in a 16-T there will be holes...feel I filled them best I could with young, upside guys. 

 

How would you rank:

- Corey Coleman

- Michael Thomas

- Will Fuller

- Ted Ginn - missed out on Funchess and wanted a combo with Cam -- still starting in the two-wr-sets. Wont happen again but he did have 10 TDs

- Braxton Miller (starting in the slot, Brock seems to love him)

-- Corey Coleman

-Ted Ginn 

 

i dont like ginn at all lol , with benjamin back hes gonna take a huge hit in his production. coleman , im not to sure about, i know hes was having problems with his route running ( just like cpatt) , so im not sold on him. i like fuller and thomas , with thomas just edging fuller , since he has the better QB.

The thing that would scare me most about your team is how many rookie WR's you're counting on cause you're pretty thin with veteran WR's but it's not a bad team at all for a 16 team league and i knew what the Thomas D Johnson was gonna be before i saw it. Out of all those rookie WR's you have i think W.Fuller could put up some decent rookie numbers this year with Brockweiler throwing the ball in Houston.

 

 

Thanks for mine

I'm not crazy about Ginn either but I got him late after missing out on Funchess, he's startin over Funchess in two-wr-sets and I wanted a piece of the Cam Combo. But yea...late, bench combo i use as a bye week fill in maybe.

 

Either way, thanks for the responses -- along with the rookie WRs, I'd like to hear thoughts on the team as a whole. Rate it for a 16-Teamer.

 

Leave a link and I'll respond to yours!

In a 16 team league that looks pretty strong. I'm not a huge Duke Johnson believer, but in PPR I don't think he's a terrible option. Obviously WR is a decent sized question mark after Demaryius, but again, with 16 teams in the league you're gonna have holes. If even one of those rookies puts up a big year it relieves a lot of pressure. Based on the circumstances I'd say you did pretty well. Thanks for the help on mine!

haha yea,  Thomas D. Johnson...

 

With 16-T leagues there is no way to avoid being thin in a certain area -- you must go with the unknown and hopefully hit on something to cover those holes. Young, upside guys help with that. Counting on a couple of them to get enough targets to produce decent numbers -- expect those targets for Coleman, Thomas and Fuller, along with Braxton in the slot in a bye-week pinch.
