Default Rate my Team!

So, this is my money-league team - last year's pot was ~$750. We drafted 3 weeks ago, which was a bit early but the only time we could get everyone together at the commish's house. It is a 12 team, PPR league, with mostly standard Yahoo scoring. 4 pts per passing TD, 6 for all others, negative points for missed FGs >30 yards, -1 point per sack on QB, etc... Kick returning RB/WRs get points for TD returns individually and on the DSTs.

Roster Positions: QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, K, DEF, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Anyways, here's my team in the order drafted, feel free to critique and give feedback. I had the third pick in the draft, snake order.

Round 1> RB Chris Johnson. I don't know why the first two people took Peterson and AJ, but they gifted me CJ and I'm happy with that.

Round 2< WR Roddy White. PPR league, need WRs, so I picked them early.

Round 3> WR Greg Jennings. I am hoping the Packers won't have so many O-line issues, and Rodgers will get him the ball more.

Round 4< WR Steve Smith (Carolina). I am hoping he has a good year and the change to Matt Moore pans out for the Panthers. They play an easy schedule, so that ought to help him get some big plays.

Round 5> TE Vernon Davis - VD for short. TEs started coming off the board in Round 4. Only the big names were gone plus Finley. VD was one of the best TE's last year and I think he will be a top 5 TE this year.

Round 6< RB Arian Foster. Good value for the 6th round. Most people were still picking TEs and WRs at this point, so I decided to go against the flow.

Round 7 > QB Kevin Kolb. Most people had a QB at this point except 2 teams who pick after me this round. I was banking on Kolb dropping this far, because he just isn't proven yet, but given the other options I think he's a good pick.

Round 8 < RB Jerome Harrison. All of the promising RBs were off the board at this point, even CJ Spiller was picked a couple spots before me. I think he has some potential in case Arian Foster doesn't work out.

Round 9 > QB Donovan McNabb. I noticed some teams still had not picked a QB, and being a bit uncertain about Kolb, I thought McNabb would be a good insurance policy.

Round 10 < 49ers DST. I like them a lot this year. Easy schedule plus some decent kick returns in Ginn, they should be a top 5 DST this year again.

Round 11 > WR Jacoby Jones. Breakout potential and he fits neatly with the rest of my WRs. No overlapping bye weeks with my other guys I think he will have a good year and make himself a great WR 2/3 guy.

Round 12 < TE Greg Olsen. I don't like this pick in retrospect, but going off of information 3 weeks ago it didn't seem like a bad idea. At this point I'm just drudging for anyone with some potential. I don't think I will be using him for anything more than VD's bye week.

Round 13 > K Shayne Graham. This league forces position picks. You must draft 2 kickers and DSTs, so the last 3 round are just crap. I already dropped Graham for Lawrence Tynes.

Round 14 < DST Dolphins. Forced pick, but decent DST for Week 2 when the 49ers play the Saints.

Round 15 > Ryan Succop. I wanted to draft Jamarcus Russell instead, but they wouldn't let me. I nearly ran out of time trying to think of a kicker to draft because so many were already gone. I dropped him on the wire and got Thomas Jones instead.

Starting Lineup as of today:
QB: Kevin Kolb
RB1: Chris Johnson
RB2: Arian Foster
WR1: Greg Jennings
WR2: Steve Smith (Car)
WR3: Roddy White
TE: Vernon Davis
DST: 49ers
K: Lawrence Tynes

Bench:
Donovan McNabb
Jerome Harrison
Thomas Jones
Jacoby Jones
Greg Olsen
Dolphins DST

Nice team. If I had more confidence in Kolb I would probably have said sure to make the playoffs, I think you stand a decent chance of making it anyway.

I think I'd start McNabb over Kolb until he can solidify his fantasy value.

Very nice team. Very impressed. You also did a nice job with getting McNabb as insurance at QB. He may end up being your starter. I'd look for him to really try to show up the Eagles and the rest of the league by having a monster year. I thought about drafting him just for potential trade bait but he got snatched up the round I was going to pick him.

I gave your draft 4 stars.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm thinking I'll be in the playoffs this year, just like the Texans

I'm hoping McNabb does what Favre did for me last year and brings his A game against his old team. Favre had his best games of the season against the Packers.

I like the starting lineup but your depth looks pretty weak. Only 1 backup WR and RB? I would drop Olson and one of the defenses and try to shore up some depth at those spots.

Well, the draft setup forces you to take 2 of each position, which only leaves two extra spots for WR and RB depth. So my current roster looks like this:

Starting Lineup as of today:
QB: Kevin Kolb
RB1: Chris Johnson
RB2: Arian Foster
WR1: Greg Jennings
WR2: Steve Smith (Car)
WR3: Roddy White
TE: Vernon Davis
DST: 49ers
K: Lawrence Tynes

Bench:
Donovan McNabb
Jerome Harrison
Thomas Jones
Jacoby Jones
Greg Olsen
Dolphins DST

I'm hanging on to the Dolphins DST for now to see how they do week 1. If they look good, I'll start them week 2 against the Vikings instead of the 49ers against the Saints.

Greg Olsen is definitely expendable, but I have no idea who to pick up in his place. A few guys on the wire I could get for him are:
RBs: Leon Washington, Fred Jackson, Cadillac Williams, Michael Bush, Darren McFadden.
WRs: Mike Thomas, Davone Bess, Mike Williams (SEA), Jerricho Crotchery, Jabar Gaffney, Danny Amendola, Devery Henderson, Laurent Robinson, Michael Jenkins, Devin Hester, Sidney Rice, Vincent Jackson

All of these guys are similar potential to me, so I think I would rather hit the wire on Tuesday morning rather than take a flyer on them now, unless someone has a hot tip...
