I like it. I assume, you had a late pick? W/ PPR, you are going to miss out on some points with Johnson and Holmes.
Ryan is a top 5 QB this year. Safe pick, and I am sure you didn't lose much on it. Let me guess, 9th round? Ya, good pickup, no real downside w/ his position. I don't understand your Bulger pick. Maybe you know something I don't. But TB, w/ Avery and Robinson. They are a running team. I say drop him, and pick up any one of the late or undrafted QB's. I like Garrard and Campbell, over Bulger. You can probably also pickup Vick (I think he will be a TD machine, passing and rushing in the wild cat). So ya, replace Bulger. Garrard, Cassell, Jake Delhomme (if he is available), may be better than Ryan, if you can get them.
I still can't figure out who your first round pick was though. I assume, Jacobs very late? Regardless I am having a hard time figuring out how your draft played out. Jacobs isn't a early first round, but w/ the spread between your next best players (Slaton and Johnson) I can't see you having a late pick.
Jacobs is a TD Machine (I predict breaking 18td's maybe even 20) w/ the loss of Ward, and focused running game with the loss of Burress.
I think Slaton will continue the tradition w/ running backs having their best seasons in year two. Good player, not sure about the pick though.
I don't trust Johnson. He's a machine, but w/ the horrible o-line bashing on a rookie QB and a horrible defense keeping their offense off the field, I don't have faith, regardless of how athletic he is. But it doesnt matter, you have nothing better to start with, so just play it out. Holmes, should be average.
V. Sinantoe, I don't understand everybody's love for him. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. W/ farve focused on the post and streak, and more than likely zone coverage close waiting for AP taking away the inside for the TE. Most pass plays will have extra protection in to protect farve, on a already run heavy team (even if they are forcing the run w/ a player who may not succeed, that's right I don't trust AP =/). I guess hold him and see how it plays out.
As for your bench, Marshawn, I don't like this year. Missing what, 4 games (?), he is going to lose the starting job, or at least a lot of carries before the seasons even starts, limiting his late season oppertunities. Besides that, it's going to be a running back by committee in Buffalo w/ Rhodes and Jackson, Rhodes likely stealing the most reps. Bradshaw is nice, for a traditional late pick.
TBH, it's a decent team, but nothing jumps out like wow. All speculation with wide margins, and the picks (unless it was a auction league) seem strange.
If it's an auction league (4/5)
If it's a live draft or auto draft league (2/5).
