I'm not sold on Ingram being a fantasy starter, nor do I think JStew can be a fantasy starter. I like Mendy and Hightower for your starting RBs, obviously you've got a great QB and two good starting WR in Wallace and Jackson. Not sure who'd I'd use in flex spot on this roster, though. I guess throw Ingram in there and hope for the best? I get the feeling he's going to get quite a few yards rushing, but that Thomas is going to take away any chances at TDs for Ingram once they're inside the 20.

So I guess what I'm saying is I think you're solid overall, but could use an upgrade to have a solid flex option. Though who knows; maybe Ingram will be a star this year!

Def like your WRs, but I'm not reading too much into Antonio Brown's preseason performance, Sanders is still THE No.3 WR in Pitt when he returns from injury. your RBs are solid too if you wanna start 2 RBs week in and week out, Tim Hightower is a match-up guy to me, and Ingram's hype in training camp might cool off if Pierre Thomas stays healthy as season goes on. Overall, I like your team very much, if you can sell high on Ingram in the first couple of weeks, or maybe wrap up Ingram and Marshall for a exciting RB2 like Felix Jones, your team is all set.

This is why I never like the idea of a QB in the first round.

I think it really hurt your RB and WR depth.

I like your starters at WR, but Mendenhall is really your only legit starting RB, if you have the ability to start 3 RBs you could be in trouble.

I agree with mendy and hightower - suprised hightower was at the bottom of your list.....I will get the start for washington by start of season....wr 1 and 2 are good. your flex though looks rough i hate ingram as flex only cuz theres 4 in the backfeild at NO. i also hate Maechem since henderson, moore, and graham ( i think) are int he mix at NO. Marshal would be considerate as flex position considering they dont really have a good run game QB or anybody else on the squad worth taking on a roster but maybe the kicker. Jon stewart would be ok if you had deangelo williams since both get hurt so so.... the handcuff would have been better but the block is ok seeing how williams does get hurt often.

I would prob had mendy, hightower, Jackson, Wallace, then probably marshall as flex starting week to week. Just watch out for ingram and few of those young stars deeper down your list because theres always a handful of breakouts every year.

QB - Elite A+

RB - Mendenhall is a rarebreed nowadays - a workorse back who doesn't share carries with anybody a majority of the time - rock solid option tier 2 RB1. After that there are big question marks (but plenty of upside) - Ingram is in the right situation to flourish in non PPR formats, redzone guy in an elite offense w/ an injury prone guy (Thomas) and an undersized punt returner (Sproles) vulturing touches from him. Stewart was awful last year, DWill re-upped w/ Carolina, Overhaul of the front office, and what looks to be garbage at the QB spot. I would love to see what Stewart could do on a good offense w/ 20-25 carries a game - doesn't looki like that's in the cards in 2011. Love the Hightower pick, if he can stay out of Shanny's doghouse, he's primed for a huge year IMO. Hunter is a handcuff for a guy you don't have rostered, waiver wire material IMO. B as is, could grade out much higher as the season unfolds if Ingram does what I think he can & if Hightower holds on the starting gig & gets the majority of touches in a crowded backfield.

WR - VJax/Wallace/Marshall is a sick WR trio, Meachem & Brown are nice upside gamble picks. A+

TE - Finley is a beast when he's on the field, I love him, however, he needs to stay healthy - something he hasn't been able to do. Ever. If he can shake the injury bug, I absolutely love the Rodger/Finley double dip Cook is a nice upside pick and pretty solid insuarnce policy. A

K & D are both elite options. A+

Overall your squad is stacked, RB gives me some concern, but there is definately potential there, championship caliber team IMO. A+

I'm not a huge fan of the lack of RB depth. I think it will hurt your chances down the road. Having Rodgers at QB is good, since TD's count as 6 instead of 4, but somebody with 3 legit RB1's can hurt you in this flex system.
