Overall Grade: B

Im siding with you on this one. I do think Romo would have been your starter and he’ll be a better QB than Freeman but I don’t think you’re downgrading to much. In standard scoring last year Freeman finished 7th at 282 pts. If you took Romo’s avg and spread it out over the course of the year he would have finished 6th with just over 300 pts.

IMO Dez is overrated and going to high in drafts. Witten and then Austin are going to be Romo’s favorite targets and I expect Felix to get the ball a lot more this year as well.

Eli < Romo – D Grade
Megatron > Stevie – A Grade
Maclin > Dez – B Grade
M. Thomas = J. Jones – C Grade

But since you have Freeman on your Bench he’ll be your starter now so that’s why I gave you a B overall. Nice work, I think you improved your team. You didn’t need help at RB so good call to keep moving J-Stew

your team looks marginally better, but it wa-sn't a whole lot of improvement. B- I guess. It's really almost a wash.

This is all going on the hopes that Freeman preforms. Im guessing you think Eli will be somewhat close to Romo at years end? See I guess I dont think that. Romo puts up CRAZY numbers when hes healthy.

There's no question that Romo is better than Freeman or Eli, but IMO he took a small downgrade at QB and greatly improved his WR1. I would estimate that he’ll lose out on about 20-30 points over the course of the season switching from Romo to Freeman (Eli as backup).

However, upgrading from Stevie to Calvin, that’s gotta be closer to a 30-40 point swing, dont you think? I cant wait to see Megatron’s #’s with a healthy Matthew Stafford. IMO Dez is getting to much hype, if he is going to be their fulltime WR2 on the Cowboys I cant imagine that they’ll still use him on special teams but I could be wrong. Maclin finished 14th last year for WR’s in standard scoring and he should come close to repeating those #’s again. Maclin has proven what he can do and Dez is still just speculation so that’s my reasoning for liking Maclin over Dez. Then Thomas for Julio is a wash…we’ll see.

Thanks for all the responses, yeah I didn't agree at all with the first few posters but you guys now have Re affirmed my belief. I think either Manning and/or freeman are a lock to be top 10. Yeah I had Romo as my starter but steve smith(car) as my 3rd and I was definitely not happy with that. I no way thought i hurt my team in the end which is what some people were saying

Once again thanks for all the responses.

I think you did well, team isn't significantly better but you added depth at runningback and slightly upgraded your WRs in the progress which cancels out any difference between Romo and Eli. And for the record I think both have better seasons than Freeman.
