Here is what my favorite for the league is:

Team 3

QB - Eli Manning
WR - Hakeem Nicks
WR - Stevie Johnson
RB - Adrian Peterson
RB - Steven Jackson
TE - Vernon Davis
W/R - Anquan Boldin
K - Adam Vinatieri
DEF - San Diego Chargers
IDPs -Lawrence Timmons, Joe Haden, DeMeco Ryans

Just a solid all around team right there. From Wideouts to running backs to even a top TE. I think this team goes a long way in the league. Think that's what you're looking for in your analysis. Even the flex position will be strong for this team as I think Flacco targets Boldin more this year. Even the QB here is serviceable.

Thanks for the help on mine too.

Team 4
QB - Tony Romo
WR - Vincent Jackson
WR - Dez Bryant
RB - Arian Foster
RB - LeSean McCoy
TE - Jermichael Finley
W/R - Joseph Addai
K - Garrett Hartley
DEF - New York Jets
IDPs -James Laurinaitis, Eric Berry, Paul Posluszny


Top ten #1s at the big three positions, solid guys in the #2 roles, RB in the flex, great TE, great kicker, great defense. I'm feeling Team 4.
Thank God for Football Season.

I think the best 2 teams are Team 4 and Team 5.

I think the worst 2 teams are Team 1 and Team 2.

That being said there are plenty of teams I could see winning this league, and I would be shocked if any teams dominated week in and week out.
Looks like a pretty fun and competitive league. Good Luck!

I really like team 4. That team all around is very solid. In my opinion that is gonna be a tough team to beat if it can stay healthy.

Romo to Dez could really be a dangerous combo...i expect Romo to have a big bounce back year.

Foster and McCoy are absolute beasts...esp in ppr.

Vjax is also a beast who has tons of big plays on a big play offense

And Finley when healthy is def a top 5 te

Team 5 is the standout for me... the two johnsons with big ben is outstanding. The two RBs are the key to them going far this year... I think both jones and wells are going to have really good seasons and if that happens i think this team will be hard to beat.

If those two RB don't live up to expectations i think team 8 is the next in line. Brees will be big as usual, fitzgerald and forte and going to produce like they do. Just like the other team i think holmes and best are the two toss-up players that could make or break team 8. I think best has a *huge* upside, but he's made of glass.. Holmes should be solid no matter what, but it depends on what sanchez can do whether or not it's his "breakout" year.

all in all going to be a lot of close matchups in this league i have a feeling.

team 1 = yikes.. frowny face.

Team 4 and 8 seem quite nice. 4 has already been discussed but team 8 has Brees, Fitz, Holmes, and Forte who will be solid. You could do worse than Winslow and between Best and DeAngleo, someone will step up. I like the potential.

Team 5

QB - Ben Roethlisberger
WR - Andre Johnson
WR - Calvin Johnson
RB - Felix Jones
RB - Beanie Wells
TE - Antonio Gates
W/R - Kenny Britt
K - David Buehler
DEF - Dallas Cowboys
IDPs -Jon Beason, LaRon Landry, Ray Lewis

I've gotta roll with Team #5. They are stacked at WR. Big Ben should put up big numbers with Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, and Hines Ward at his disposal. I'm really high on Felix Jones this year, and if Beanie Wells avoids the injury, he'll shed the "bust" label that's been given to him the past few years.
