16 team league. Bit of a crazy point structure - QB's get 1 point per completion, RB's & WR's get 10 bonus points for 100 yard rushing or receiving in a game. Rest of scoring is pretty standard. I had 15th pick. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 PK, 2 DL & 2 DB.

QB - Stafford, McCoy(R)
RB - McCoy, Mathews, Gerhart(R), Snelling(R)
WR - R White, AJ Green, J Ford, D Bess(R), S Smith PHI(R)
TE - Finley
K - Hartley
DL - Tuck, VandenBosch
DB - Berry, TJ Ward

Basically I know if one of my starting RB's go down I'm screwed. I tried to handcuff Mathews with Tolbert but he went earlier than I thought. Best available on waiver wire - J Harrison DET, K Hunter SF, J Ringer TEN are any worth a look?

You had the 15th pick and managed to get McCoy?!? Great job man. Fantastic looking team for a 16-Team League. AJ Green can turn out to be a solid fantasy receiver, and Jacoby Ford is the Raider's version of Desean Jackson. Ryan Mathews will have a good year, and same with McCoy. I expect Stafford to end up as a Top 8 QB this year if he doesn't get injured. Finley is a BEAST and will get you a good amount of points every week. Give my team a rating for me.

A pretty solid team overall. Let's take a deeper look:

QB - No one has ever doubted Stafford's talent. Let's face it, he has freakish skills. In addition, he has excellent weapons around him. HOWEVER, his health is always a MASSIVE if. If he can prove to stay healthy, you could be potentially dealing with a top 10 QB.

RB - Whaaaa? You got Lesean McCoy at 15? Unreal, awesome job. Ryan Mathews is as good a candidate as anyone to break out this year as well. Decent backups in Toby and Snelling. Great job here.

WR - Roddy White is as sure fire as you can get at WR. A.J. Green is a high risk/high reward type player in my mind. Not because of his skills, but because of the QB situation. He's got potential to produce like a WR2 however. Decent depth as well.

TE - JerMichael Finley is a player who is going to absolutely bust out this year in my opinion, if he can stay healthy. In my opinion, he'll finish the year as a top 3 TE.

IDPs - Solid IDPs headlined by Justin Tuck and Eric Berry. These two have a shot to be top scorers of ANY IDPs during the year. Low risk guys in Vanden Bosch and Ward as well.

Overall, a very solid team, especially for a 16 teamer. This has to be one of the top teams in the league.

Help me?

Thanks for the input fellas. I was shocked when LeSean McCoy fell to me and was equally as surprised when the guy after me didn't take Roddy White, as both Andre and Calvin Johnson were off the board. There are a couple other teams that look impressive but overall I'm pretty happy with my result. Of course on paper and in action are two different things.
