    Rate My Team

    I would appreciate any feedback on what you think of my draft results. I am in a 10-team, head-to-head league.

    QB: Aaron Rodgers
    WR: Reggie Wayne
    WR: Marques Colston
    WR: Hines Ward
    RB: Ray Rice
    RB: Shonn Greene
    TE: Kellen Winslow
    WR/RB: Knowshon Moreno
    K: Garrett Hartley
    DEF: Pittsburgh Steelers
    BN: Eli Manning
    BN: Danny Amendola
    BN: LaDainian Tomlinson
    BN: Zach Miller
    BN: Darren Sproels
    BN: Davonne Bess

    I know my WR is a little weak with the exception of Wayne & Colston. Any other positions I should be concerned about?

    If you could rate my team as well as provide reasoning for the rating, I would appreciate it.

    • I'd rate your team a 7.

      QB - Rodgers is obviously one of the best. In a 10 team league you shouldn't feel compelled to draft a back up QB for a guy like Rodgers. That spot is better used to grab one more upside WR or RB. Just pull the guy off waivers with the best match up to cover Rodgers bye week.

      RB - Ray Rice is solid and Greene is decent value with potentail to be a solid RB2. LT's not a terrible backup, but Sproules has very limited upside unless it's PPR. I would prefer a lottery ticket like Ben Tate, Roy Helu or Delone Carter. One injury to the injury prone veteran in front of these guys and you have a solid RB2 or higher.

      WR - Wayne and Colston might not be that bad (Wayne especially). Risky yes, but it may pay off. Ward's upside is very limited. Amendola and Bess are PPR monsters, but not great for this type of format.I'd ditch Bess and grab a guy like Greg Little or Denarius Moore. They might not work out either, but if they do there's more upside.

      TE - Winslow is ok. Same story as QB - You're wasting a bench spot on a guy like Zach Miller. First of all I hate his landing spot in Seattle, but more importantly you could have had another RB or WR instead. There're tonnes of TEs with potential (Pettigrew, Cook, Kendricks, Gronkowski, Olsen, etc, etc). There will be someone around to fill your bye week and maybe even be better than Winslow.

      K and D are pretty standard. I hope you didn't reach too far for the Steelers. You're WAY better off getting a Defence late and then just playing the match ups with waiver pick ups.

    • colston, ward, greene, and moreno aren't good. Try to trade to get better players at those positions. You could get better players in return for greene and coston.

    • Actually, I hate to say it but I think your WR's are pretty weak all around...Wayne has been Mr. Consistent for years, but a lot of that had to do with #18 being behind center...with Manning's health being a major question, I'm worried Wayne's numbers could go into freefall. As far as Colston goes, Brees spreads the ball out far too much for any single Saints receiver to be labeled "the guy" - in other words, he's going to be hit or miss every week for you.

      Your QB situation is great so we won't even bother, you're set there.

      RB's look solid. Greene worries me a bit because every year it seems like we hear "well this is his year to break out and become a star"...is it? I guess we'll see. Anyway, given the lack of depth of elite RB's in the NFL, I'd say your in good shape.

      Winslow at TE is a solid pick. He's not elite, but Tampa's on the rise and he started looking pretty reliable toward the end of last season.

      Kickers are kickers, nothing to get into on that front. Same with your defense - Steelers - nuff said, you're golden there.

      I would say your best bet right now is to try and upgrade your WR's. Bess would be the first guy I'd cut of this roster, so if you can find an upgrade, do it. Also, pick up Rashad Jennings if he's available - he'll provide you with some nice RB depth/trade bait should MJD go down again with an injury. That right there could be your opportunity to significantly improve your WR's.
