Top tier QB, Top tier RB, Top tier TE, 2nd tier RB, and a lot of guys with tremendous upside (Evans, DMAC...). Very nicely done. I even like some of your bench for 3-4 WRs and RBs... should have a good season. Good luck
I'm assuming you took Brady in the 3rd, in which case your league is crazy haha.
Anyway lets take a look at things
QB - Brady is a gamble, but thanks to the rules always changing in his favor he will have all the time in the world to throw this year, still has his targets, should have a solid year.
RB - AP always good, same with Portis (Just pray Washington develops a passing game or he will get killed). McFadden is a gamble in a competitive time split, Benson is broken down, Graham has potential depending on how Tampa decides to act this year.
WR - Here's where I recommend trying to upgrade. 3 years ago you'd have the greatest WR corps in history, now? eh. Housh is solid but 85 could take some of his targets away unless its all a facade. Evans? Competing with TO and Lynch for targets, but any catch he makes can be a score. Watch him in December. Hines Ward is always decent but he's running out of gas. Hester is a great sleeper I think. I think people are overvaluing Forte but Cutler doesn't target the RB and if teams overkey on Forte Hester wins big. Holt is done. I'm sorry but he is.
TE is solid, especially since Indy is confused as hell when it comes to RBs, and Peyton is throwing anyway.
Defense and K are D and K, you'll get points from them if you are active.
Not a bad team, especially not for a non-PPR league. 10 teams though? Most teams will look stacked on paper, and if your WRs don't perform... You could be in trouble. Good team though!

AP sliding to #2 is nice for you. Why did the first guy pass on AP??? The rest of your squad looks good but I don't think its unbeatable by any means. The reason I say that is because your receivers are suspect. TJ and Lee Evans are not very reliable as ones and twos and Hines is over the hill although he still might put up a few nice games here and there. Portis is a great #2 back but he is a prime candidate to break down this year even though I hope he doesn't since he is my keeper. McFadden is a nice #3 assuming his role will increase this year.
Bottom line though, with Brady, AP and Portis, you should be in line for a solid year. I would just feel safer with a more solid WR Corps.
The fact that you got AP should compensate slightly for your WR's. I personally like Housh, and Evans this year. I also like Ward too. And people are counting out Benson, but in your situation you have only upside potential with a guy like that. Good work.
