    • very well rounded team, but i would try to add a rb. try trading holmes/well/moore/washington. 2 of those 4 guys into getting one.. holmes isnt going to have a great year, him and sanchez arent on the same page.. wells is too injury prone and ryan williams is coming back.. moore has a crowded wr core with a lot of rb that also need the ball.. and the titans just drafted wright and britt coming back so washington wont get the ball as much

    • WR's : I Like your starters, but A) Dont know what to expect out of Welker with the addition of Lloyd and B) Wayne as a 3rd starter is a bit of a stretch for me. Dont see any of the backups as more than bye week fill ins.
      RB's : A very high risk-high reward scenerio here. If Gore can reamin relatively healthy and Murray stays healthy and learns to find the end zone you will be fine. Which Reggie will we get? Wells may find himself losing carries based on what I have heard.
      QB's : Brady...nuff said. Not a big fan of Dalton in fantasy and he has a relatively tough defense in Denver on Bradys bye week.
      TE : Davis is a solid fantasy TE.
      Its a solid team, but too many question marks. 7 out of 10 with potential for 8 out of 10.

    • Rather than Wayne i would draft some riskier higher upside wr.
      One of the broncos or Heyward bey or bess.Unless you think Luck will do for wayne what cam did for steve smith but i think he contines to turn into more and more of a possesion 5 catch and 40 yards per game quality role player with minimal fantasy value.
      That being said rest of draft is solid

    • good team, iffy at the RB position but you could move Wells and Holmes for a better WR

    • Try this strategy next time

      1st round RB
      2nd round TE - Gronk
      3rd WR
      4th WR
      5th WR
      6th QB - Both Mannings/ Vick/ Romo
      7th RB
      8th RB
      9th RB
      10th RB

      And rest as you see fit

      • Your second RB late in the draft? Gronk in Rd2? You definitely buy into the hype on Gronk. Gates in the 5th Rd is better value. I agree with the 6th rd at QB where all of the 2nd tier QBs are.

        TE Gates
        RB Gore/Bradshaw
        QB Ryan
        and the rest

        Make the playoffs easily with this choice, and keep your eye on the waiver wire during the first 5 weeks to spot the next Ray Rice, Vick, Gronk, Cruz, Foster, etc

    • you'll be fine if your RBs stay healthy.....IF

    • Weak RBs, maybe trade for them, otherwise looks pretty ok
