Drafted yesterday (before news that Bush hurt his thumb)...
12 team redraft, .5 PPR, performance bonuses at 100/150/200 rush/rec, 300/350/400 passing, pretty standard scoring otherwise.
16 rd draft, 18 man roster
QB - K.Kolb (9.06), B. Favre (10.07) WR - A. Johnson (1.06), R. White (2.07), J. Jones (Houston, 12.07), L. Naanaee (13.06), A. Gonzalez (14.07), J. Edelman (15.06), D. McCluster (WR/RB, 16.07) RB - J. Stewart (3.06), J. Addai (4.07), A. Foster (5.06), C.J. Spiller (7.06), M. Bush (8.07), D. McCluster (WR/RB 16.07) TE - J. Finley (6.07) K - None drafted D - Minnesota (11.06)
Going into draft, I thought Gore was mine at 6, didn't happen - was torn between Turner & AJ, obviously went AJ - there were 5 RB's I was targeting in RD2, all off the board when it got back to me, went White - figured I could ignore WR for the most part after that - pretty pleased w/ the results.
Figure most weeks lineup will look like this...
QB - Matchup play WR - AJ WR - White RB - Stewart RB - Addai TE - Finley Flex - Foster K - TBD D - Vikings
Kate Upton's Husband - dead Mr. Blonde - champ Yo Soy Fiesta - dead Old South - champ Full of Fanta Tonight - champ Sex Panther (SB) - dead Sex Panther (FF) - dead Sex Panther (IBL) - dead Sex Panther (Dynasty) dead
I don't really like your RB group as a whole...i love J-stew, but he still has injury problems. WR are obviously very good. I like Kolb, but I don't trust him as a number 1 yet. Finley is gonna be a beast this year...no worries there. good luck. take a look at my team. viewtopic.php?t=470470#p3211711
Thanks for help on mine. You know I like your players siince we share 6. On blackberry, so I'll keep this short. Not crazy about Jstew and Addai as RB1 and 2. Addai is recovering from a concussion. Bush will likely play week 1 (rotoworld today). Foster will be awesome. WRs will carry this team. Kolb explodes and this team will be great. Otherwise you will still be competetive.

Sex Panther, thanks for the help on mine. You gave me a lot of things to think about.
I think I'm going to echo what some of the others are saying. Your backfield scares the living out of me. Personally I like the guys, especially after what Foster showed on Saturday night, but I'm not sure if there is a guy there that you can get 14-20 points out of (alteast) every week. If it's a concern for you, I would think about a trade. Maybe coupling Roddy White & Spiller for a higher ranked back and lower ranked WR. Spiller looks pretty juicy right now since he's had a pretty successful preseason, BUT I personally think Jackson is still the guy in Buffalo....and after all, it is the Bills in a very tough conference.
I think it'd be easy to find a owner to overspend on Spiller. Good luck!
Like most, I think your RBs are your weak spot. Lots of risk there, and it's pretty stressful not having one sure thing at RB. I like Stewart better than a lot of people, but he's not an every week all-star given his situation and injuries. Spiller is overrated given his situation with the Bills - people are forgetting about Jackson and the fact that the Bills are terrible. Addai will get points, but he's not a standout, and Brown's role will increase this year. Foster looks great, but is unproven, Bush is already hurt, and McCluster is a pure upside pick at this point.
I like your QBs - keep them and play the matchups. You got great value there.
WRs are top-heavy, but both of those guys are going to be very consistent for you if they stay healthy. So hope they do. You've got a lot of upside there, so maybe one of those pans out (my money is on Naanee).
Finley's good, Minnesota's good.
I really think you're gonna have to part with one of those receivers... packaged with a RB people are high on right now (Foster?), you can probably pick up a top RB (find someone consistent and durable) and a second or third-tier receiver. But that's just me...
QB - I like the strategy. You missed out on the elite so no need to reach. You'll like what you get out of either Favre or Kolb. Rating: B- RB - While they're not world beaters - I think you'll find two solid producers out of your group. Stewart took me to two Superbowls last year and if Addai stays healthy you're set. Out of Spiller/Foster/Bush I think you'll find at least one diamond in the rough - my money says Bush. Rating: B WR - Great set of receivers with a bench full of upside - not much else to say Rating: A TE - As you can see from my team - Finley should have a big year Rating: A- K/D - Pretty much irrelevant in preseason
I'm quite high on J. Stew this year, pretty low on Addai. I think if Spiller comes through, you'll have a nice RB trio with him, foster and stewart. I wouldn't panic there just yet.
AJ/Roddy is great. Don't love your depth after that, lot of question marks for each of those guys-Jones has some breakout potential but with daniels back he may languish. I think garcon and collie have really filled gonzalez's void, and he's returning kicks in practice. Naanee is relatively low on the priority list for targets at this point, but the season will tell. Welker seems to be back and I think edelman suffers. I think you just have to hope that one of those guys breaks out.
I love love love finley this year. if you can platoon favre and kolb effectively, I think you'll be very competitive.
I like your WRs best. Good depth and upside. RBs are bit shaky IMO, but could work out well, especially if something happens to DWill. Spiller could be very strong. Lot's of ifs, but if they break your way, you're golden. I like the Kolb/Favre combo and Finley looks to have a huge year. Overall, nice job
