Thanks for the votes of confidence guys . Like I said open to RB2/QB2 trade. The QB2 situation may or may not be your fault CCF23 so go figure. That said, I do expect a bounce back year from the Buc's in general. In addition, given the league awards 4pts/passing TD and 6pts/rushing TD (please tell me I'm right here lol) I'm hoping the dual threat will add some value.

To offer some quick thoughts - of course all just my opinions
Luc Bourdon: The QBs are going to be an issue. Top 2 RBs are great and like the idea of WR flyers, but now in the position of praying for Run DMC to put in a full year.
CCF23: Like I said, I like the team. Great QBs, WR is an area of concern though
pdefenestrator: Amazing WRs, not so sure about QB/RB
ubiquitous: Another team I like - I think we open against each other? IMO issue becomes depth at WR/RB. Regarding the QBs: I actually like both even if they're not top end studs

Also lol @bgav

I disagree, but you could have a point. Redman could easily end up being a starter himself if (still) "mending"hall struggles to return from injury. Plus there are always waiver guys out there on RB, moreso than WR or QB. Look at last season and tell me otherwise, some of the top earners of points were waiver pickups.

Appreciate the feedback though.

Now I don't have depth at WR either?! AGGH, you people! Marshall, Jackson and Britt are all number one receivers in their offense and Blackmon is also a number one. Granted, I can see their QBs being potential problems, but I think they'll still get their numbers. Marshall and Cutler have insane chemistry, I'm most excited about them.

Ha - should clarify ubiq. I think it's a great team - when I refer to depth I'm thinking more the bench players. I do think the RB concern is legitimate. The WRs are definitely much better. I guess I would say my concern there is more lack of a true "stud" with the consideration that Britt does also have his injury/suspension concerns. Blackmon could be a great sleeper though

Edit: And yes - I think it's definitely time to watch the waiver wire

Marshall's a stud. He put up great numbers with Matt freakin' Moore as his QB.

Yeah my bench still had Deion Branch and James Jones who can fill in in a pinch. Agreed about RBs though if either of them gets hurt I'm in trouble.

Hmm... I'll concede the point although I'm not his biggest fan. Cutler is certainly an upgrade from Moore and it looks like he has been giving him looks

Anybody wanna give in depth reviews on the draft for all the teams, would be fantastic.

Kind of like twins did, which was great.

Chandrian is me.

QB - Peyton Manning
QB - Jay Cutler
QB - Mark Sanchez
QB - Kevin Kolb

WR - Dez Byrant
WR - Brandon Lloyd
WR - Torrey Smith
WR - Danny Amendola
WR - Michael Crabtree
WR - Laurent Robinson

RB - Chris Johnson
RB - Willis McGahee
RB - Ryan Matthews
RB - Ben Tate
RB - Kendall Hunter

TE - Greg Olsen

K - Robbie Gould

Def - Dal

Think its a pretty solid group, though there are some question marks at QB with Manning coming back from injury - which is why I took the Sanchize (I am not convinced Tebow will unseat him). Don't have the highest end WR's, but have a lot of decent guys.

I think I will finish middle of the pack & hopefully challenge for the playoffs.

Got a bit of a cold, and I slept through the morning and most of the early afternoon - was feeling pretty choked at about 3 when I realized I missed the draft, but it looks like things turned out okay...
If anyone is looking for an RB, looks like I'll be in a position to trade with Ray Rice, MJD and Peterson...

Good luck this season, fellas.

QB's

Carson Palmer
Ryan Fitzpatrick (not really who you want to see as your 2QB)
John Skelton (might get a chance if Kolb is what I think he is)

RB's (clearly the strength of my squad is here)

Ray Rice
Maurice Jones-Drew
Adrian Peterson
Jahvid Best
David Wilson

WR's

Greg Jennings (really it could be any of those guys who go off, but if I were drafting I would have stayed away from any Packers receivers)
Mike Wallace
Dwayne Bowe (Might turn out to be a steal - I expect Jon Baldwin to open up a lot of space for Bowe this year - a healthy Chiefs offence could be dynamite)
Mike Floyd

TE's

Fred Davis
Jake Tamme

D

Green Bay
New England

K

David Akers
Nate Kaeding (**** sakes, Yahoo needs to have an algorithm for not drafting two defences and two kickers even on auto)

OK, so I'm sure I could go back in the thread to figure this out, but who on here is "Best In The World"? Last team I need for my list.

Ok, so I'm putting it out there right now, one of my top-3 RB's is for sale for a big time QB.

For those of you with more than one crackerjack QB who is also unsatisfied with your RB depth, shoot me a trade and we'll get talking.

Also: I'll be out of country from Sept 5th to Oct 10th, but I will get online at least once a week to check up and set rosters.

not all that happy with my draft, but i was really happy with my draft last season and the year was a trainwreck, so who knows...i really hate drafting either at #1 or #12 because once you pick you have to wait for 23 more players to get picked, forcing you to select more safe picks and less risky players with high upside:

QB - aaron RODGERS
QB - matt RYAN
QB - blaine GABBERT

RB - jamaal CHARLES
RB - fred JACKSON
RB - ahmad BRADSHAW
RB - kevin SMITH
RB - deangelo WILLIAMS
RB - jacquizz RODGERS
RB - daniel THOMAS

WR - demaryius THOMAS
WR - stevie JACKSON
WR - darrius HAYWARD-BAY
WR - santonio HOLMES
WR - stephen HILL

TE - tony GONZALEZ

K - matt BRYANT

DST - new york GIANTS

strengths are obviously at starting qb and running back depth, while wide receivers are an obvious sore spot

i like my playoff chances with rodgers/ryan starting every week but i'd like to add a wr by waivers/trade and see how the running back situation develops in the first few weeks

Well since everyone is doing it, I'll post my team too.

QB Tom Brady
QB Michael Vick
QB Russel Wilson

WR Julio Jones
WR Pierre Garcon
WR Denarius Moore
WR Devery Henderson
WR Mario Manningham
WR Lestar Jean

RB Darren Sproles
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis
RB Peyton Hillis
RB Rashad Jennings
RB Michael Bush
RB Shane Vereen

TE Antonio Gates
K Garrett Hartley
DEF Seattle

I feel like my team is a little thin at RB and WR. I wanted either Fred Jackson or Ahmad Bradshaw at the end of Round 4/Beginning of Round 5 but freakin Jack Tripper took them both !! But anyways I think I did a decent job shoring up the position with guys who could carve out decent roles on their team.

About Brady, a lot of people have been asking me about him. I just wanted to clear up the situation. I'm not looking to trade him. If someone wants to make me an offer, I'll listen. But it's going to take over payment for me to deal him. Something like a replacement decent QB + a above average WR/RB + star WR/RB. Probably not something anybody wants to do, but I'm willing to listen.

We will just have everyone post their screen names at the live draft, probably the easiest method to see who everyone is at once.

It will be interesting to see if he can find some success with the Jets in the wildcat formation. I think that might be a niche system that Tebow could excel at.
