First of all, welcome to the Cafe - great to see another new face around here ;-D

A few of questions to help me better rate: How many teams are in the league? Can you share the scoring settings and starting roster requirements?

On first blush, I really quite like the team. Great top 2 RBs, and a usable backup in Benson. Helu is a bit fringy at best and I think you might want another upside guy at the position, especially if you start 2 and have a flex position for example. Your WRs are a bit thin at the top and are banking on some longshots/upside, but Lloyd, Harvin and best matchup isn't a terrible group to run out there at all considering those RBs. With Romo (and a capable backup) at QB and Witten as your TE, I really like how the skill positions rounded out. Bryant and Bears DST are both solid gets, too and I'd probably give this team a B+ in a vacuum until I know the answers to my above questions.

Well done ;-D

For 12 teams, I like the squad. Half PPR doesn't change my analysis a bit either, so I think the grade is very good and fair for the squad. I would recommend that with 3 WR starters that you consider dropping Cooley for another viable guy at WR, and I am still a bit concerned about Helu as your RB4, but I really like the team quite a lot ;-D
