Very solid team
Ur set at qb
I'm not a fan of bowes inconsistency but I think ocho is gonna do well in NE
If Peyton returns collie can be solid as well. And I think Evans will have a big year for himself
Great rbs and WHEN gore gets hurt u have good backups to plug in.

Pretty solid team...
QB - all set here, so no need to worry.
RB - obviously Peterson is a beast and I like Gore also. I'm not convinced personally about Stewart and Thomas though.
WR - the group is pretty good but not spectacular. A few question marks for all those players, but Collie and Ocho definately have some serious upside if things go there way.
TE - some people are high on Olsen but I'm not keen personally. I've generally avoided CAR players this year.

Your QB is great, and your RB's are fantastic as well. I definetly think that your WR core is well-below average, and I personally don't think Olsen is good enough to be a starter at TE, might want to scan the waiver wire for an upgrade there. I think your QB and RB's make up for your WR's and TE enough to give you a solid team. Rate mine?

Graham was dropped. Thinking of waiting until he clears waivers to drop Olsen for him. Would that be the upgrade I need?

Get Graham!!! WRs are ok....not sold on Bowe (hopefully he'll prove me wrong!!!). Collie will be fine if he stays healthy! Ocho should have a decent year with Brady. Great RBs in Peterson and Gore! And Brees is the man! You'll be very competitive in this league!!! Good luck!

yah real solid QB situation obviously.

not sold on Bowe as a #1 without solid RBs to support the team in the event his inconsistancy carries over to 2011. He'll have some big weeks and some gaps. Fortunately for you, ADP and Gore will carry the weight for you during his 'off' weeks. This of course is assuming Gore stays healthy.

IF... or more likely WHEN... Gore gets injured, your RBs are going to be just avg. I don't know what anyone else is talking about with Stewart and Thomas. Stewart plays for Carolina for crying out loud. They're HORRRRRRIBLE and Newton isn't going to turn this team around. Even if he does down the stretch it certainly wont be in time to make a good season for Stewart. Not only that but he splits carries with Deangelo Williams. Pierre Thomas... well... All I need to say here is Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles. No sir... when Gore gets injured you are NOT set with your backups.

And Olsen... once again... plays for Carolina. Don't expect them to cross the goalline too often and when they get into goalline situations... don't expect them to count on Newton's arm. His legs maybe... but not his arm.

Hard to argue with Green Bay as your DEF. They're one of the few set-it-and-forget-it DSTs this year.


Overall... playoff contendor, but not my pick for the crown.


Thoughts on mine?

Seriously. Your main weakness is at TE, this would fix that a lot. I would be happy if my biggest problem was at TE
