    Let me know what you think please. Now that I got my done and was able to pull off my first live draft, I look around and see what the rest of your teams look like.

    Here's mine (it's a PPR League):

    QB Philip Rivers
    QB Matt Ryan

    RB Adrian Peterson
    RB Darren Sproles
    RB Steve Slaton
    RB C.J. Spiller
    RB LeSean McCoy
    RB Tim Hightower

    WR Calvin Johnson
    WR Marques Colston
    WR Lee Evans
    WR Dez Bryant
    WR Joey Galloway

    TE Tony Gonzalez

    D/ST Cowboys

    K Lawrence Tynes

    To be honest I don't care for your RB's other than AP and Spiller, nor your WR behhind CJ. The rest looks ok.

    I'd actually give it 4 stars. Love the QBs. Philip Rivers consistently year after year is a top 5-7 fantasy QB, Matt Ryan can definitely fill in if anything happens to Rivers, nothing needs to be said about Adrian Peterson, the Sproles, Slaton, and Spiller picks are VERY shrewd moves in a PPR league, I'm ok with Lesean McCoy but think you probably could have gotten better, and like your starters at WR. I'm not big on the Lee Evans or Joey Galloway picks, but Dez Bryant has potential. Tony Gonzalez will put up his usual numbers, and the Cowboys D looks pretty good.

    Very good draft.

    Looks good at QB, Rivers is a beast.

    RB looks kinda weak. You are really going to be relying on Spiller and McCoy to step it up big this year. Sproles and Hightower could surprise if injuries hit the starters. I'm not big on Slaton.

    WR's are good IMO, CJ and Colston is a nice 1-2 and Evans is a decent 3. Bryant has a ton of upside. Galloway? Not so sure on this pick, you expecting him to ressurect his career at 40 years old?

    Gonzo and Dallas should be solid.

    Kicker, who cares.

    It's a PPR league so scat backs will have more value. You don't like Colston in a PPR league? I think he'll be good. Bryant was an "upside" pick and will be stashed on the bench.

    Thanks, that's pretty much they way I went about it with SCAT backs and how the draft was trending. I got McCoy pretty far down the line.


    I disagree about my RB's, or at least the top 3, the rest are bench and are subject to getting cut or bye week fill-ins. Bryant and Galloway are going to be stashed. Galloway was pretty much a throw away pick, there wasn't much left, I took him right before I took my kicker which was the last round.

    BTW, I think Beanie Wells is injury prone, and I have two solid QB's, I have no problem with trading off Matt Ryan for another RB or WR.

    IMO, I got a real good QB, 2 very solid WR's, I feel good about RB (maybe Spiller comes on strong? Sproles and Hightower could pan out, Slaton is a throw away pick I got him very late and AP is still AP), solid D and solid TE who gets a lot of receptions.

    BTW, Galloway is #2 on Washington's depth chart right now ahead of D. Thomas........so that's why I grabbed him over Mario Manningham/J. Cotchery/Roy Boy Williams who are both WR3.

    Those guys are on the wavier wire.

    I really do like Spiller, I have him in my money league, but he's a rookie which makes him a big ? in my opinion. There are 2 other very good RB's to steal touches from him, their Oline is awful, they have no passing attack, and to top it off he's a small dude and I'm not sure if he can handle the rigorous 16 game NFL schedule.

    On the plus side the kid is explosive and can house it any time he touches the ball. He's a natural catching the ball out of the backfield and shows great instincts in the open field. His cieling is high enough to be a top 5 back this year but his floor is also quite low. It's a high risk high reward pick.

    The problem with Hightower and Sproles is that you need Mathews and Wells to go down for them to be worthy starters. Slaton, as much as I hate to say it, looks to be pretty much done. But like you said, he was a throw away pick.

    Just my opinion though, lord knows I've been wrong before.:kitten:

    Exactly why I am nervous to start Spiller this week, I kind of just want to see how it goes. You're right about the state of the Bills.

    I don't disagree with your anaylsis of Hightower/Sproles but they were ranked at a pretty good value and at that time in there draft there wasn't much left and in the end they are just bye week fill-ins, or maybe their value will go up because of injury as you stated. At some point I'll have to find another D and K so, somebody is going. I don't mind constantly revolving kickers though, it usually don't matter much.

    Hey guys, I am planning on dropping Slaton for Miami's D/ST. I only have the cowpies D and they are not doing great. Also thinking about dropping Sproles for Mercedes Lewis since I only have one TE. Either him or Snelling.

    What do y'all think?

    They way I see it Sproles and Slaton probably won't crack my starting line up very often if at all and I think the Dolphins Defense is going to come on strong the rest of the year. I think Lewis could continue to perform well and my current TE is Gonzales, he's not lighting it up as much as I thought.

    Also looks like Hightower and Dez Bryant were good calls right now. Spiller has been stinking it up though. Also I dropped Galloway for Nate Washington before week 2.
