Default Re: Please examine my team!

Yeah, your depth at QB is good. I have Rivers in my Keeper league, and Collins is an adequate back up.

RB is probably your weakest position. Depending on if this is a PPR League, your receivers might be more important,, and if you have a flex position, but w/e. Portis has always been the main ball carrier in Washington, but he is getting up there, has been injury prone, and has Ladell Betts waiting for carries. Stewart is the future of the Panthers run game, and is a good #2, but after that, you fall off sharply with TJ Duckett. He may end up the Goal Line back in Seattle, but barring a Julius Jones injury, and a change in Seattle's philosophy, I wouldn't expect him to bring you very many points.

Your WR depth is good. Even if Marshall gets shipped out of Denver, he's still a dominant receiver and will put up yards, receptions, and TD's. T.O. has always had a honeymoon season after signing with a new team, so look forward to that. Lance Moore is a good #3, but with Colston, Shockey, Bush, and Thomas all looking to get touches, I worry that he might have 8 receptions one game, and 1 the next. Gage may be listed as the receiver in Tennesee, but his numbers won't reflect that, but for your #4, you could do worse.

Tony Gonzalez is of course an elite tight end. No worries there. Bears D is the same, they'll get you points. Same with Gostkowski. The only thing is I think you may have picked these positions earlier than you needed to, and your depth at the skill positions suffered. Barring injury, your unit should be solid, but I'd suggest scouring the waiver wire for some RB depth.
