Based on my draft....
I expect my WR1 and WR2 to perform like RB1s.
I expect my RB1 and RB2 to be a platoon of backs based on whoever is hot and perform like RB1s.
I expect my QB to perform like a QB1, and if not healthy, then backup as a QB2.
I expect my TE to perform like a tier 1 TE

QB1 - expecting 4000 and 25
QB2 - expecting 3500 and 25
WR1 - expecting 1400 and 15
WR2 - expecting 1400 and 15
WR3 - expecting 1200 and 11
RB1 - expecting 1200/10 and 500/3
RB2 - expecting 1200/10 and 500/3
TE - expecting 800/8

things never go as expected... but I am expecting those things from my team personally. If things don't go as planned, I probably won't be winning the league.

I think if you go into the season expecting that you're going to be sorely disappointed...especially if that's what you're expecting from the team listed below. And I think we've already discussed the 500 yards receiving for a RB...

I think he asked from the position... not any specific player. which means I'm playing best matchup or whoever is hot. If you take those backs on their good weeks... I don't see why not.

I guess I fail to see how you can possibly "expect" those kinds of numbers from the different spots on your roster...they are rather "unreachable" in general. I feel like this might be more of what you think guys "upside" might be when you draft them rather than what you really fully "expect" them to do.

Because really, if you look at how many guys every year get the kind of numbers you're expecting...there aren't many.

Based on your numbers, here's how many achieved those marks last season:

QB1: 6
QB2: 0 (that aren't already considered QB1)

Since there was only 1 RB with 500 receiving yards in each of the past 2 years, I'll do 1700 total yards and 13 TDs as the mark.
RB1/2: 1

WR1/2: 0
WR3: 2

TE: 1

So can you honestly say these are "expectations" when there are barely any (if any) guys who really are going to achieve them in the entire NFL much less that many on your team?

While I love setting high goals for your team, I do think you've set these a little too high. Tallying everything up in a traditional non-PPR scoring league, you're looking at 1770 total points over the season. That is a mighty lofty expectation.

In my PPR leagues with a similar starting roster plus two kickers and a defense, the top score annually is right around the 1800-1900 point mark. Since I don't play in many non-PPR leagues anymore, I can't say for certain what the adjustment would be; but I can with a good deal of certainty say that a team with your goals in my PPR league would put up somewhere between 2400 and 2500 points on the season which I can assure you will never, ever happen.
