QB
Probably the weakest part of your team although Stafford is getting better and has the perfect receiver to make him look good. I just think the Lions are perpetually doomed.
RBs
I love CJ, Hightower and Jackson...hot optimistic about Gore but, he still remains all the 9ers have. Mabye Edwards will helps open some lanes for him this year. I think Hightower will have a great season though...no worries at your RB position.
WR
If you're in PPR, you have the perfect group of receivers. All speedy, possession-type, receivers. They won't score you alot of TDs but will rack up yards. Although it would not surprise me if Burress quickly moved his way into your starting line up as a Sanchez favorite. Good picks...may have a problem scoring TDs though although Burress might fit that role.

So, if I were to improve anywhere on your team, I would look first to QB. Maybe ifJosh Freeman, Ryan Fitzpatrick, David Garrard is available?! McNabb??

Good luck!

Thanks. I'm pretty confident with Stafford, though. Someone dropped him last year when he first got hurt, so I picked him up and played him when he came back until he got hurt again. He was scoring around 20 fantasy points a week last year. If he can stay healthy, he can put up elite numbers. Freeman was actually the QB I was targeting the most, but someone unexpectedly reached for him in the fourth round, but I'm still really happy with Stafford. I'll see how Kolb plays once the season starts. If Stafford goes down, I'd have no problem playing Kolb, so long as he's putting up solid numbers, which I think he will.

"EHHHHH!"
im buzzing cope like americas got talent right now because the lions look so good this year ..... if they can keep stafford healthy . There a team for points this year def is good. I like your QB status duo as they go hand in hand. I like the hightower pick. round 13 as torrain does get hurt a bit even before getting the starting roll at washington. YOUR tes could be a problem for you, i think Pettigrew is going to produce now that stafford is healthy. Im not like tony gonzalez as hes getting pretty old and didnt produce for me last year plus considering julio jones is in line up i think he gets less reception this year . I think overall you have a solid team..... lacks a bit in te's but your RB and WR make up for it...

QB - both guys are a bit of a gamble, but I like them aas a starting duo in a 12 teamer - young guys with lethal wideouts at their dispossal. Stafford needs to stay healthy and Kolb needs to earn his money. B

RB - Obviously, you need CJ to get on the field, big gamble with the 5th pick, but chould (and probably will) pay huge dividends. Gore/SJax/Hightower is solid and CJ to that trio - you're flat out nasty at RB. A+

WR - I love me some Welker, I love him even more as a WR2. That said, not sold on your set of WR. Boldin started out with a bang last year, but was very pedestrian, borderline unstartable in 2010 - hopefully that changes. Holmes got paid, and he's a better real WR than fantasy option IMO. Buress/Evans are, at this point, no more than bye week fill ins. You've hitched your wagons to 2 suspect passing attacks in the Jets and Ravens. C+

TE - Gonzo is old reliable, the days of him being elite are gone, but he's more than adequate at TE. Kendricks is a nice upside pick. B

K - Cundiff is average - but a kicker's a kicker. C

D/ST - I love the upside the Lions (as a team) has, their DLine has the potential to be absolutely lethal, very sexy pick, hopefully it pans out. B+

I give your squad a solid B. Your unquestioned strength is at RB. Beyond that, you need someguys to really produce. You should be able to win more often than not with the advantage you will have most weeks at RB. If a handful of the other guys you have rostered can come thorugh you could become very hard to contend with.

Thanks. My plan was actually to hold off on a tight end and only pick up Lance Kendricks late, but I decided to get Gonzalez, too, just as insurance, when he was still available in the eighth round. I can see Kendricks replacing Gonzalez in my starting lineup early on if he lives up to the hype. I actually do have Pettigrew and Kendricks in another one of my leagues, too.
