I can't use the shield properly :c I'm annoyed by it more than any other ability though, so I guess that means it's pretty good?
idk if you've played recently but the AR got a massive buff, so it's almost equal to the BR. BR is still op as fuck at midrange, and the DMR is still op as fuck at long range. I'm really liking the light rifle, though, as it takes 3 shots to destroy the shield and then either 1 headshot or 2 body shots after that for the kill.
big team is the most fun, but I miss 8 on 8 objective. remember two flag on that sand level with the two elephants in h3? good times :( 1 flag/1 bomb on Headlong in h2 still the greatest though.
backup QBs are a terrible, terrible idea in standard leagues in all but three scenarios: You have an injury prone QB #1 (like Vick, or this year if you're worried about RG3), there's a guy with tremendous upside (like RG3 last year), or you are stuck with the #11 or #12 QB (ie last year in one league I decided to draft like the #12 and #14 rated QBs in Carson Palmer and RG3, that turned out pretty well hehe). If it were up to me, about 15 QBs would be drafted in a 12 team league, with Eli/Roethlisberger/Vick being drafted as backups for RG3/Kaep/Romo and guys like Flacco, Dalton, and Freeman going undrafted. I'll get the last laugh in my league, though, when like 8 people draft a quarterback that takes up one of their four bench spots for 16 weeks out of the season.
AP not great? what? after Harvin went down and despite being literally the only threat on that offense, he had a fantastic second half of the season. I'm way way WAY more worried about Foster, whose YPC has declined every year as his # of carries has gone up. If I were drafting today, I'd probably go AP/Lynch/Martin/Charles/Foster as my top 5, and after that I'd go into panic mode because I'm worried about Rice, Richardson, and McCoy. The Vikes will probably win fewer than 8 games, but the offense has upgraded with Jennings and Patterson and AP will do his thang.
I don't have Richardson that high, that's the current average draft positions on some mock draft website I use (just google "average draft positions" and it should come up). Richardson was hurt most of last season and still ended up a top 10 RB, but I don't trust a Browns player when they have no one on the outside to catch the ball. I wouldn't take him unless all those guys I mentioned plus McCoy plus Alfred Morris were drafted. Hopefully some of the dunderheads in my league will draft a quarterback in the first round, like that guy who drafted Peyton in the 2nd last year hehe.
