This team is very solid for a 12 team league.

Ray Rice has a good shot to be the number 1 back in PPR leagues this year. Not only will Rice be able to eat up tons of yardage and catch passes out of the backfield, it appears that Rice will be getting the Ravens' goal line carries. To quote the Ravens' offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, "Ray Rice will play a major role in short-yardage and goal-line this year, we were just fortunate to have a guy like Willis [McGahee, before], but this year Ray Rice will be in short-yardage and goal-line as well. He is outstanding." If that holds true, Rice is primed to explode.

I love the upside of Jahvid Best as your RB2 and Mario Manningham as your WR2. If Jahvid Best can stay on the field for 16 games and avoid the nagging injuries like the turf toes from last year, he is in for a huge year. Mario Manningham should be able to build on his 2010 with Steve Smith gone.

Phillip Rivers and JerMichael Finley are elite options that can be had a few rounds later than the Aaron Rodgers' and Antonio Gates' of the world.

Good luck in 2011 ;-D

Very good team & given your league's settings with the 2 Flex I would say you're pretty set.

Good depth @ RB & TE too.
