10 team, PPR, 6 points all TDs, very QB dominant league. RBs capped at 5 per roster (lame), just missed on Jennings coming back and settled for AJ Green.

QB: A Rodgers, B Roethlisberger

RB: J Charles, D Martin, R Bush, BJGE, R Williams

WR: AJ Green, Julio Jones, T Smith, P Garcon, R Cobb, Hankerson, K Wright

TE: Witten, F Davis

D/ST: NYG

K: Hartley

I feel pretty strongly about this team and really like Torrey Smith and Randall Cobb this year. Being that it is PPR I don't mind Bush as my RB2 and like Martin quite a bit as well in TB. Pull no punches, let's hear what you think!

I think your running backs are outstanding. Especially getting D. Martin. You have enough depth there to handle injuries.

I like your receivers to except for Hankerson. Cobb should be a nice sleeper and take away time from Driver.

Witten is a big question mark. If his injury is going to go well into the season, get rid of him.


All and all a pretty good team.

These are the options of a novice FFS player, plus you asked...

Like the Rogers pick, btw just for me, what pick were you?

Like the RBs w/ Charles (fm what I read) is a little gamble, cause it is unsure how time will be split for KC's running game. wait and see. I like Hillis in his new role and think he would be a great late draft pick to help w/ bye weeks, plus is he the bruser RB, good near the goal line vs Charles. Then again this is a PPR league and Charles is good w check down passes or out on the sides.

Like the first 3 WRs, I would pass on Garcon, like Cobb. Don't know enough about the last two to comment. Not who I'm tracking.

Its Witten hurt? oh, yea he must be idol until the end of this week. That is if the ruptured spleen heals correctly. My rule is never draft a player who is hurt, but I must be flexable. (As I hear Russ's voice in my left ear - LOL)

Love Davis, see a big year

Good D, not my pick for Kicker, but told this doesn't not make or break you. Then again, NO may be doing a lot of kickin, we'll see

A lot of young, talented WRs in the bunch. RBs I am not as optimistic as James, I think Charles is a gamble solely because of the injury last year. I do like Bush and Martin, as well as BGE. I do like both the TEs as well. Davis could be a nice play this season.

I assume you were first pick. Rodgers is going to be a monster with QBs getting 6pt per TD.

You're WR are young and definitely exciting. I personally like AJ Green better than Jennings. He's got less competition for targets.

As for your RBs, I think they're fine. But given your league structure, I think they'll be your third most important position behind QB and WR.

Looks good, the only thing that concerns me is Wittens spleen injury, depending on the severity, it could take up to 3 months to heal properly, and there's no way of rushing it. Fred Davis is a nice pick though, RGIII should be looking for him quite alot this season and he should have 60 to 70 catches.

Yeah I agree Robert, that is one reason I made Davis my #1 TE because RG3 will need an outlet.

Thanks for the input guys. I was the #1 pick. I kept Charles and Jones. I drafted Witten in the 8th or 9th round. I figured he warranted the gamble there. As I look back over the team I took NYG too early. I have been bullish on them this year and likely, for unwarranted reasons. I really like Ryan Williams to overtake Beanie as the RB1 in AZ this year as well.

One draft down, two more to go!
