Love your QBs--stud and depth. I think after Rodgers' bye week McNabb will have HUGE trade value if you want to go that route.
RBs...in a non PPR I'd like to see more stability in a RB2. Addai could be solid, but I'm worried Brown may take over. Best has lots of upside though, so you may end up starting him. Bradshaw--if healthy--is a very nice pickup.
WRs look serviceable. I think the Ravens will still be a run-first team, but Boldin will do OK. You gotta hope DeSean can replicate those big plays again this year, but I think he can and he's a great WR2. This is the year for Bowe. If he can't cut it in 2010 then I'm officially writing him off. But he's doing and saying all the right things so far. I really like Santana as a surprise pick this year. Hang on to him and see what he does. Not sold on any rookie WRs, but if you can package Thomas with a RB to land a solid stud (maybe a RB) then I'd do it.
TE--Gonzo's targets have dropped but he's still one of the best. You might have trouble from week to week deciding who to start here, that's how hopeful I am about Z Miller (OAK, not JAX).
Kicker and D appear solid, but you never know with those positions. Always easy to switch them out though if need be.
Seems like a pretty solid team. I'd look to upgrade at RB before I did anything else. Good luck!

You are obviously set at qb and i agree with some of the other posters on here. I think that you will end up trading either McNabb or actually Rogers...depending on how stable McNabb is.
In fantasy i always like to have a suitable backup and trade the stud/big name because you can usually get a better player in return...in your case maybe packaging with deangelo williams for a rb and a wr may be something to look into as the season goes on.
If all of these factors add up you could end up with a healthier option than dwill at RB...a better option than d. bowe at WR and not lose too much at the QB position even though you do lose a little bit. I think that this trade possibility would deepin your squad and make you alot more balanced.
Thanks for the help with mine! Good luck!

Obviously a very solid team, but I wonder what it looks like in comparison to the others. I'm green in FFB, but I'm in a 10 teamer now and some teams look like absolute monsters when it really is only relative to the # of teams. Either way, you seem to have an all-around squad with depth that will definitely allow you to make roster moves in the future (if need-be).
I disagree that you are weak at RB. Obviously DeAngelo will produce if healthy, and although I can't say for sure who will be good this season, I find it hard to believe that Addai, Jahvid and Bradshaw will all fail to meet expectations. One of them should be a solid RB2, you may just have to wait a few weeks to figure out which one. WRs are solid, but I don't think they are THAT great. Obviously you have the best fantasy QB in the league, so that's probably a good thing. Not a huge fan of Gonzo, but you have another good option in Miller, so I think you are fine at TE. Solid roster. And while an upgrade at RB may be nice, I don't see that happening without losing a starting WR (as previously stated), and I wouldn't want Thomas or Moss starting on my team in a 10 teamer.
I think your core team is good, in a non PPR league receivers are not as highly coveted and I think you’ve got guys on your squad that will score plenty of TD’s, I really don’t like anything going on in Denver this season, they are poised for a complete implosion this year and drafting a rookie WR with a foot injury was just not smart. I say you dump that guy as quickly as possible, in a 10 team league here are some guys that should be available off waivers that may be better to stash on your bench than Thomas.
Jordy Nelson, GB Mario Manningham, NYG Early Doucet, Ari Brian Hartline, Mia
These are all 3rd year receivers as well, so they could be poised for a breakout year.
Rodgers has a late season bye so you won’t be able to shop McNabb after Rodgers Bye week no one will need a back up at that point so trading him now for a lower tier back QB and a receiver might be a better option. Owners with the following QB’s might be interested in McNabb because he is a better option for QB and be getting their backup you have a great match-up for your week 10 bye week replacement.
Matt Cassel, KC Trent Edwards, BUF (This may seem crazy but the bills play at home against Detroit in week 10) Marc Sanchez, NYJ (Plays Cleveland in week 10) Matthew Stafford, DET (See Trent Edwards above) – as a side note, look at what Matthew Stafford and Brady Quinn did when they played each other last season: Brady Quinn, 304 Yards 4 TD’s Matthew Stafford, 422 Yards 5 Td’s Crappy teams make other crappy teams look elite. And to further beleaguer the point, the Redskins play the eagles in week 10, not as favorable a match-up if you ask me.
Just some food for thought when looking to shop a backup QB.
