Okay, so I only see two true RBs... what am I missing? And although like AP pick, not thrilled with Hillis. I consider him a risky pick. I'm worried about you at RB foremost.
Thank God for Football Season.

What's the league format (i.e. number of teams, scoring rules, etc.?)

In a vacuum, I love you picks in rounds 1-5, 7 and 9, and the rest I'm pretty bleh about. Freeman was a decent value as your QB2 and not a bad backup plan just in case something happens to Peyton.

Too early for Steve Smith (either one) as a WR2, though you had a nice get with MM a round late, and you definitely took your defense and kicker too early in an attempt to fill starting positions instead of building depth. All this said, I really do like 7 of those first 9 picks and have to give you props on trying to cover your deficiency at WR2-3 with some late fliers on Plax and Meachem.

My main worry is your RB depth, as you only have an injury-risk big bopper and a post-hype sleeper who went nuts and now faces a likely regression (still an RB2, but just sayin'). Unless you only have 1 RB and a W/R/T position, I think you need to cut at least Ward for a flier on a young RB on the wire who might see enouh snaps to help you down the road in a pinch. You're just too thin there, and I think you have plenty of fliers at WR3 with Smith, Burress, Meach and Ocho, so I'd dedicate at least that spot to a usable RB3.


There's some ups and some downs, but I like the starters quite a lot for the most part, so I'll give you a "B" with some solid upside ;-D

BTW, welcome to the Cafe! Always nice to see a new face and I hope to see you around here more ;-)
