So I am entering into Fantasy Football for the first time. I joined a Yahoo public league, and had it auto-draft, since I have no idea what I'm doing. Here's what I got (h2h league, BTW):

QB- Michael Vick
WR- Andre Johnson
WR- Hakeem Nicks
WR- Antonio Brown
RB- Darren McFadden
RB- Matt Forte
TE- Brandon Pettigrew
BN- Tony Romo
BN- D'Angelo Williams
BN- Anquan Boldin
BN- Randall Cobb
BN- Dustin Keller
K- Matt Bryant
BN- Mike Nugent
DEF- Green Bay

I mean, I know GB's Def is really bad, and Forte looked pretty good yesterday, but what do you guys think of my roster overall?

Dump the spare kicker. Go mine some wr with upside from waiver wire. Your guys have an injury history.

Made 2 waiver moves that should go through soon: Dumped back-up kicker Nugent for WR Austin Collie, and dumped GB's DEF for CIN's.

When i said you have guys with injury history, I did not mean to suggest getting a player with an even worse injury history. Avoid Collie.

Haha. Good point. My biggest problem is, I really don't have that database in my head of players like I do with MLB. I barely recognize most guys outside of the Bengals, except the big names.

BTW, my team name- NotTheBunglesAnymore
Also, thx for the help Logan

I'd look for a guy like LaFell if he's there.

We're only entering week 2. Go read some pre draft articles on top 200s. Check rotoworld. You can get up to speed and at least find guys to keep your eye on. Yahoo allows you to create a watch list. Utilize it. Look for rookie sleepers. You may have to try to take some risks on guys coming back from injury, such as Miles Austin types. Check out Britt, just had suspension lifted. Has some knee issues tho.

Thanks cincyinco. Also, what are the basic, widely used and well-thought of stats?

Just the basics yards, attempts, tds can get you started.

If you are a freak like me, you get into points per snap, average depth of target, number of targets, yards after contact. To me the most important thing is to avoid the injury history guys like the plague.

I don't know how many teams are in your league, but you have 2 top 10 QBs, 3 top 20 WRs, and 2 top 10 RBs. I would say you are in a pretty good spot. Packers D isn't looking so bad anymore though :) But, like Logan said, you've got guys with injury history, especially at RB. It might be worth trying to package a starting WR and RB for another top RB to provide some stability. Boldin will still be a solid #3 WR, especially if the Ravens are actually going to open it up this year.
