    B+.
    Weak at RB.
    Could easily ruin your chances (especially if Manning has health issues this year).

    I'm not loving the receivers, but Peyton and the Carolina defence are both solid.

    it looks like you need a kicker.

    how many teams in the league? it looks weak for 8-10, average for a 12 team league.

    I'll play. This is my team i just finished drafting a half hour ago with my friends. 12 person league, and all but 2 owners were there to live draft the teams. 10 yards rush/rec per point, 25 yards pass per point, 4 points pas td, 6 for a rush/rec td.

    I had the 9th pick in a snake draft

    QB: Matt Hasselbeck
    RB: Marshawn Lynch
    RB: Jamal Lewis
    WR: Braylon Edwards
    WR: Dwyane Bowe
    TE: Alge Crumpler
    WR/RB: Thomas Jones
    WR/TE: Santana Moss
    K: Mike Nugent
    Def: Pittsburgh

    Bench:
    Chris Perry-rb
    Jerious Norwood-rb
    Steve Slaton-rb
    Vincent Jackson-wr
    Amani Toomer-wr
    Kevin Boss-te
    Jason Cambpell-qb

    It's a deep draft with 12 people and all those roster slots so it's kinda fun

    I feel a bit nervous about my receiver situation. I really really wanted Reggie Brown instead of vincent jackson, but my computer froze when it was my pick and gave me pittsburgh D. I got vincent the next round to curb the bleeding, but i would be a lot happier with Reggie. I'm excited about Slaton or Perry possibly becoming an impact player though. I've done 3 drafts so far and have picked 7-9 each one. I have Lynch in all 3 leagues, which scares me a bit

    Despite having Croyle, I think Bowe is going to have big year--good pick.

    And with the Bengals waving Johnson, you might think about starting Chris Perry.

    Lynch is the main event in Buffalo.
    I think he'll do fine.
    Your team has balance and depth.
    One injury won't ruin your line-up.
    Good luck.

    Well, my starting 3 rbs are all solid guys who don't split time at all. Perry will probably "start" but only get max 70% of the carries until he starts playing well. He's a solid receiving threat too, but i see the first 2-3 weeks him getting 15-18 touches and watson/the other guy getting about 10-15.


    To the first guy:

    Your team sucks. Seems like you probably picked peyton in the first round, which is unnecessary. Who did you pick in the 2nd? Carry splitter jones-drew? He's a baller in madden but there had to be a better running back around. You have 3 ok runningbacks but none are really worth being a number 1 back, and i wouldn't even like them as a number two back.

    You should have DeAngelo WIlliams as your flex over stallworth i'd say. It seems the job is his at the moment, but stallworth and the browns might get into a shootout with the cowboys week 1. You receivers are kinda iffy after plax too.

    Im in a big league with a late pick and 6 point pass TDs. Fred Taylor is losing that position to Mojo.

    Agreed about DeAngelo, he just happens to be benched (this is immediately after the draft).

    +1. You should drop JaMarc. There has to be someone better available for that spot on your bench.

    brian- Drop Oakland D and pick up another RB that has a chance to play sometime this year. Maybe a guy like Steve Slaton could be available? Maybe Ray Rice? When it comes time for the pats bye week, just pick up a random team that is playing the worst team that week. Everyone should do this for their backup D. Is there a reason you have 2 TEs on your bench but no starting TE spot? If so, there might be another WR with some upside left. Better that than a guy who isn't going to get above 500 yards and 4tds on the year like marcedes. With deep bench players, try and get some guys who could potentially start, not just stop gaps for byes. cut76- Pretty solid team, especially at the RB position. What the hell league is that where they let one of those guys slip to the 2nd? I'm not really high on jennings as he was kind of hit or miss and relied on long tds rather than consistency. I'd perhaps consider dropping a WR or swapping Bell for a RB with some upside and who could potentially start and be good trade bait later on. I dunno, that's just how i roll, but the team is solid.

    I did what all intelligent people should do and googled it. So basically if your qb throws a touch down in real life your fantasy football team gets a touchdown if you chose that player
