The weak part as i see it is QB with Eli and Cassel. I'm not fond of either of these guys but they do have weapons at their disposal.
The strength is clearly at RB wow some owners were asleep at the switch letting you get 3 of the top 12 options. Nice handcuff with Jennings but check his injury status.
I think you will be very pleased with Davone Bess, I expect a career year from him. Unfortunately, I'm not nearly as high on Steve Smith, a great talent but in a miserable situation.
I expect this team will challenge for a top spot. Nice work.

The elite QBs and WRs went really quick this year...so I jumped on the RBs and ended up with Eli :( Thanks for the reply!

RB has the potential to take this team a very long way, especially if MJD returns to form. Sjax is a great flex pick. Your WR's and QB's are a little weak. Like the previous poster Rashad Jennings is a nice cuff, but he's on crutches at the moment. Good luck in your league, you should be very competitive.

Overall pretty solid. Your RBs are fantastic and they're basically going to carry your team.

Two problems: WR and QB
WR - generally weak here. Mike Williams I really like, but it's not as great after that. Santonio, while #1, has a shaky QB behind the line. Smith is so-so and getting kind of old. Devone bess has a horrendous QB throwing to him and is also only a #2 at best on that team.
QB - I hate Eli, especially in fantasy. Horrible decision maker and just a mediocre QB, but as the previous guy said he does have several great options

I say try to use Jackson / MJD to trade up at WR and QB. See what people are willing to throw your way..

I'd have to agree with the general consensus here...RB is a strength and WR is a weakness, but from your comments it appears that was the strategy you took in your draft (and not a bad one at that, since the 3 RB's are all studs). If you're thinking you're gonna hold all 3 RB's (and not trade for a better WR and lesser RB) I think your focus at this point needs to be around those "sleeper" WW guys at WR. There's always a handful that can break out and a team out...

I'm not as down on Eli as the other posters. I think he's a servicable option and good enough to not lose games for ya. Good luck!!
