Solid. You have a top 5 RB in Charles, a top 5 WR in Nicks a top 10 in Hillis and a top 10 in Wayne, and #2 TE. Obviously your weakness is QB. Big Ben is about number 7 overall, but you should make up for this with other spots. Great job.

Not crazy about Big Ben either... kind of like Staffords upside this year if he can stay healthy.

Any other thoughts on my squad?

Prediction: Stafford will end up as your starting QB by week 2.
I'm not big on your WR core after #2. Thomas is on lowly Jax and Ward has seen better days. Knox is intriguing and may very well be your #3.
Don't expect the same #'s (or even close) from Hillis but Benson on the bench is a nice luxury to have. He will once again go over 1,000 yards with 7 or 8 TD's. Tolbert won't see as many touches as Mathews asserts himself as the premier runner in SD.

Overall I'd have to say this team is slightly above average, could see it finishing anywhere from 3-6.

Not a bad team you got there.
Not a huge fan of your QB or WR corps, but i think you've got some good RBs.

Ward will be a nice WR off of the bench.
Stafford will probably end up being your main QB.
With some good mid-season WW pickups, you could be in good shape.

Help me, please?

Solid team. Couldn't ask for much more out of 2 RBs, WRs are solid, Tolbert is a great flex play, New England's D will be solid this year. Not a plug and play but for the most part you should be able to just leave them in.

You'll be starting Stafford by the end of the year. No knock on Big Ben but this is Stafford's breakout campaign. He's been throwing bullets through pin-holes in the preseason. Guys an elite talent... just needs to stay healthy, and his shoulders have been repaired and rehabbed by the same people that did Bradford up. I don't like the injury prone label attached to Stafford. If you watch the hits he took went he went down, most QBs would have been injured.


Thoughts on mine?
