Definitely risky, but you have a usable platoonmate in Eli, and I really think a healthy Stafford takes a huge step forward this season. With your RB corps and above average-solid starters at WR and TE, I really quite like your team. Solid upside in some of your bench guys too, and some room for churning should injuries strike before bye weeks as well. I'd give you an A-, or maybe even an A in a vacuum, so assuming decent luck and health, I'd say you have a playoff team on your hands ;-D

Thanks a lot. Although that Arian Foster pick has me a bit worried (I took him third, before CJ2k and Rice) I made sure to pick up Tate and dropped Ringer to get Ward.

Its high risk/ high reward. The kid has game and weapons all around him. If he can just stay healthy there's no reason he cant get 25-30 TDs

I like it. Your team is full of upside. The only one I would drop is Ringer now that CJ2K signed. You don't need to wear someone else's handcuff.

Yeah I agree. Besides hes only worth something to the CJ owner, not you. Its not like if CJ went down that Ringer is just going to step right in and do the same thing. He would be lucky to produce half the numbers CJ does to be honest. Other than that I like the team alot. I think Stafford is going to be fine this year. Foster is going to be fine, dont worry. This is a marathon remember, not a sprint. I also dont think you need to hold on to 3 players for Foster. I would just hang onto Tate and drop Ward. Then if for some reason Ward is getting all the touches drop Tate to get Ward but I dont think that will happen.

Yeah, I did drop Ringer right after I found it CJ2k was signed. But I am holding onto both Ward and Tate, I know people in my league were already all over Tate, so I was forced to take him probably a round or two early, now that word is coming out that Ward is going to be starting, I had to take him off waivers. Not only do I feel there really isn't anyone on the WW worth taking over Ward; I feel it would be crazy not to do everything I can to support my number one pick. If Ward does start, and I didn't pick him up, it would be like wasting my first pick for a week. I love the input anyways, feedback is always helpful.

Nice to see so far no one feels I have a weakness outside of the obvious risk in QB. I'm thinking of putting together a trade for another RB to have on my bench in case any injuries happen. Thoughts?

I am high on Stafford this year. And that being said, Eli is still a top 10ish QB, so you have a good solid backup if Stafford doesn't produce like you need him to.

I think your team is very solid and would rate it a B+/A-. You should be in the playoffs.

I know I'm in a 12-team league, and you're in a 10-team league, but I'm curious as to when you drafted him? I can't remember exactly when I took him, but I'm pretty sure it was the 8th round.
