    • I kind of like your team a lot. Strong RBs and I would not mind having Cobb, White, Fitz and Colston as my receivers and the potential of Sanders. Great draft imo. And with this roster you have a platform to trade for upgrades.

    • It has the look of a team where you fell in love with a few players and forgot to balance out your team. But the resulting team has promise.

    • Great deals on Roddy White, Fitz, Emmanuel Sanders and Ben Tate! Your team is deep

    • Your loaded at RB, but your WRs are really hit or miss. I do like the Sanders pick, but who knows if Cobb or Colston can stay healthy, and Fitz and Roddy are getting older . If a few of those guys can stay healthy or play lke they have in the past you should have a solid team, but there is the possibility for a lot of issues at WR. It is still a very balanced team that should have a good shot at contending regardless of what happens at WR

    • I'll be honest, I don't know much about Standard settings. But, I'm not high on Montee Ball, so I think you could've passed on him. Morris and Forte (a little pricey) are good. I think you overpaid a bit on Cobb. White and L-Fitz, not too high on. Rivers is good for $2. I'd like to be thrilled with your team, but it's not a great one. Could be built up with strong waiver (or FA) choices.

      • Yeah, I didn't intend on getting Forte. He was sitting at $52 so I bid on him. I was initially targeting Lacy (who ended up being the next nomination). I got sucked into a little bidding war as I was trying to up the price a little bit, but it backfired on me. I like Forte but getting him caught me off guard.

        I think Ball is going to have a huge year. Peyton is smart enough to get the RBs involved when it matters and the receiving weapons should give Ball a lot of room.

        As for Cobb, I dont know. Maybe it was a panic move. I had $60 left and no WR. I'm not actually a fan and want to trade him asap. I thought $11 each was ok for White and Fitz and it made me feel a lot better about my budget but Fitz vs the NFC West defense I do not like at all.
