I love the WR depth on this team. You have two of my top 5 ranked WRs and Vincent Jackson is normally a low-end WR2, but you got him as your WR3, very nice and you also have two other WRs who can come in and fill in nicely on bye weeks. I might try and make a move for another RB though. Your RB1 and RB2 are nice, but McClain is eh, Mendenhall is eh, and Brown will only see minimal carries if Addai stays healthy.
Agree with DaWinner! I think since you play a flex you need to make a move to secure a better RB. I would maybe package S. Smith with either mendenhall or Mclain to an owner in need of a WR and try to get a RB such at Slaton, CJ4.24, Gore, Jacobs, etc. Let us know what teams have a glaring need for WR and what their RBs are.

QB: Kurt Warner, Kyle Orton
Basically the perfect combo at QB. A proven top flight stud in Warner and a high-upside QB2 in Orton backing him up. Great work.
RB: Steven Jackson, Pierre Thomas, Le'Ron McClain, Rashard Mendenhall, Donald Brown
Interesting that you drafted second and ended up with S-Jax. While I like S-Jax, that's a bit of a reach if you really took him there. I would've preferred Turner, MJD, or Forte instead. Nevertheless, Jackson is still a stud. He'll probably miss a few games, but you know what you're going to get when he's out there. Which is, elite production.
Furthermore, Pierre Thomas is an interesting pick. The Saints are a pass first team and I think people are discounting Bush a little too heavily, but I like Thomas' upside. If he averages double-digit carries and remains prevelant in the passing game you're going to be in great shape with him as your RB2. Behind him, I don't think much of either McClain or Mendenhall, but Donald Brown is a great sleeper pick. He'll be pushing Addai for carries all year.
WR: Randy Moss, Steve Smith, Vincent Jackson, Anthony Gonzalez, Kevin Walter, Devin Hester
Easily the strength of your team. Moss should be in for another historic year with Brady throwing him the ball and Smith could easily put up top 5 stats at his position as well. Behind him, I like the prospects of Jackson, Gonzalez, Walter, and Hester this year. Overall, just a fantastic group you put together here. It might prove wise to trade some of this depth to help bolster your RBs.
TE: Greg Olsen
I love Olsen this year. He should be a top 5 TE with Cutler throwing him the ball.
DEF: Philadelphia Eagles
Even without Jim Johnson (RIP), they're talented enough to be very good. K: Kris Brown
QB: Kurt Warner RB: Steven Jackson, RB:Pierre Thomas Bench: Le'Ron McClain, Rashard Mendenhall, Donald Brown WR1: Moss WR2: Smith WR3: VJ Flex: Brown or A.Gonzo TE: Olsen
Looks good. A little thin at RB#3 but I think D.Brown will fill that role and become a solid Flex for you each week. Might take 4-5 weeks to form though. You have 2 stud WR's with 2 Solid #2/3 WR's in VJ and A.Gonzo. You can flex one until we see what your other RB's do. Mendenhall and Brown could be great this year. McClain will get Goal line so...if they have a great match up then he should be a lock for 30+yrd and 1-2TD. Play the match up!
Good job. Solid Qb, Great WR's, Solid Top 2 RB's, solid TE....solid all around!
