QB - Freeman, Stafford
RB - Adrian Peterson, MJD, Tolbert, Marshawn Lynch, Toby Gerhart, Cadillac Williams
WR - Mike Wallace, Brandon Lloyd, Plaxico, Deion Branch, Jerome Simpson
TE - Gates
Defense - Ravens
K - Alex Henry
Freeman and Stafford are a solid duo at QB, but there is reason for concern for both - Freeman was insanely efficent in 10 and had a cake walk schedule, add to that he greatly inflated his stats in 1 game (Seattle) at the end of the year - exceptional "real" QB, not sold on fantasy just yet. Stafford has a chance to put up monster numbers, and he has the talent & talent around him to do it - he just needs to stay healthy and on the field, something he has yet to do. C+
You're loaded at RB, hopefully you have the option of starting 3 of them. I would try and land R. Jennings as MJD insurance. A+
Wallace is a WR1. Not very high on Lloyd - I don't think he comes close to duplicatiing last years Temco numbers. Palxico is interesting, but a big risk. Blah on both Branch and Simpson. B-
TE is elite, hands down best standard scoring TE option - injuries are a concern, but when he's on the field he put up WR1 numbers from the TE slot. A+
K is tied to an elite offense and should be an every week starter, only concern is he's never done it beofre, but IMO will be top 5 at his position. A
D more of a name brand nowadays, solid but unspectaular. B
Overall I like your squad, WR 2 could be a problem unless Lloyd has a year comparble to last - I just don't see another 1400 yards and 10+ scores in the offing. The problems you have at WR2 are offset to a degree by your TE slot.
All in all I give your team an A-, your RB/Wallce/Gates nucleus will, more often than no,t make up for the sporadic play at WR2/QB IMO.viewtopic.php?t=493032
