Picked 10th of 10 teams, all the RBs I liked were gone by the 10th pick.
I'm worried my decision to pass on Rodgers/Brees for Dez Bryant is going to come back to haunt me.

To be honest, it looks you picked last. Cutler will need a big year...otherwise your team could be 4-8 in a 12 game season. Your RB's are weak side. If a 3rd WR pans out ( Evans ), you might want to trade him for an upgrade at RB.

I do like your WR's, and St. Louis could be a suprise Defense this year.

Good luck.

Total points are the big payout in this league, best head-to-head over all 17 weeks is the second payout. No playoffs, but you do set a lineup at the end of the regular season for the real NFL playoffs.

I think I have three top-15 WRs with Thomas, Bryant and Floyd. The rest of my roster's a bunch of gambles. Luckily, I ran away with the points title last year so I'm playing with house money this year.

Just did mine. Picked 4/12 in PPR.

QB: Big Ben, Alex Smith
RB: Toby, Jennings, S-Jax, Sankey, Freeman
WR: Megatron, Marshall, Watkins, Hunter, Wheaton
TE: Gronk, Miller
D/ST: Saints
K: Vineteri

Didn't get the RBs to fall that I wanted, but thrilled with Megatron and Marshall. But I think Toby and Jennings are both solid starters, and I like the upside of Sankey. I'm golden if Gronk can be Gronk.

I think Eli is going to be checking down a lot to Jennings this year with their new offense and Gerhart is definitely going to get a hefty workload. You look like you're in good shape to me. I just drafted in my 14-team league I don't really care too much about and ended up with Eddie Lacy, Alfred Morris and Le'Veon Bell as my RBs.

Thomas and Bryant may finish 1 and 2 among receivers (2 and 3 at worst, IMO).Floyd should be top 10 or 15 among receivers, so you have some great production there. Ellington should put up numbers like a young Willie Parker. Jennings is solid. Reed is a cheap stud. You should do real well IF Cutler stays healthy. I'd think about making a move for a backup QB early in the season.

Dont listen to Joel he doesnt have a clue. the experts on serius xm would have praised you.

all the top rbs gone you go and take two of the top 3 wrs then go for value in ellington and jennings both starters and PPR beasts.

jay cutler is awesome.... you waited on qb.... jordan reed great.... waited on TE....

So far perfect 100%

after that its hit or miss. picking at ten you grabbed beasts with your first four picks!

and Dez is way more value than a QB..... the fall off from brees rogers to cutler is probably almost zero over the year. literally. cutler could come out as top qb this year.

I dont like bishop sankey or lamaar miller at all but thats my take listening to fantasy football radio all day long. bishop isnt polished and lamaar miller will be backing up knowshon moreno.

so for those two RB picks I drop you from a perfect 10 down to about a 9 with the starter you have and where you drafted.

now if you were drafting at 1 I would say go RB RB with first two picks. as all the top flight WRs will be gone by your second pick.

see it all really plays out this year due to WHERE you draft in a round. the shmucks dont understand. you go after VALUE not POSITION.

GREAT JOB.

what? ellington has the skillset of Jamaal Charles. Comparing him to 1 dimensional willie parker is a giant insult to ellington. thats a fact.

You picked at 4 and passed on one of the top 4 RBs? That is insane. maybe at 5 i could see passing on eddie lacy for megatron but passing on mccoy, forte, peterson, or charles for megatron is a catastrophic mistake.
