I like teams 1, 6, 10 and 3 the best (in that order), as they did the best job of amassing top starting talent and usable bench depth. AP, Rice, Marshall, Wayne and Co. put No. 1 over the top, and I think 6 and 10 are a bit behind but also well ahead of the rest with their nice RB tandems and usable starters across the board. Team 3 looks like the last one that sticks out to me as being above average, and is followed by a group of mediocre teams led by No. 2. Team 11 shows why autodraft = fail :-b

Which squad is yours?

Too much info, but based on starters only looks like team 10 or team 4 could be a beast.

Sorry I can't help more, gotta run soon but wanted to at least get that much.

My team is #3. I completely agree that 1 and 6 are the class of the league. I would have prefered a better WR3 or QB, but I got caught price enforcing on both Moreno and Wells. I will probably end-up trading one of them for a WR (maybe with Team 4) or QB.

Thanks for the input!

Sorry about the extra info. I personally like to see people's benches. I agree that team 4 and 10 could be very good, but I think that there are concerns with both. Team 4 doesn't have a RB2, rather relying on Julio Jones (who will be good but inconsistent). I really like Team 10, but am not sold on Best. He burned me last year and preseason concussion could be an issue.

I will make sure to rate your team. Thanks for the feedback.

It is really difficult for me to go through the whole league, but 6 & 10 look good to me. Thanks for the help with mine.

1 and 6 are my favorites.

Your team is right up there if you can make a move to get another quality WR.

before i comment, i just assume it's 3WR 1RB 1R/W flex?? so it's WR heavy league.

team 1 - average QB, a little below average WRs, however, some people believe AP+Rice can conquer the world, and in Fantasy Football, at least they can conquer any RB combination. just curious, what's price for AP and Rice in your league? average TE

team 2 - good QB, possibly top 3 QB too, strong RBs. another upside is Mendenhall is least injury-worry RB you can find in top RB list. WR1 is good, but WR2, WR3 is weak, however, Knox might surprise you and make your WRs overall much stronger. PS- i like hines ward too, mendenhall+ward, steeler fans? average TE

team 3 - I like Flacco, a lot, but i gotta be honest, him being my starting QB is pretty bad. strong RBs, imo, it can compete with AP+Rice team, but cheaper in auction, however, it come with risk of Foster's injury and DMC injury-prone, it's a gamble, if they both stay healthy, you got yourself a top RB team for cheap. decent WRs, weak WR3, but decent WR1 and WR2. good RB depth with Wells and Moreno, Ward to backup foster. good TE

team 4 - strong QB, it's brady, what else you want. strong WRs, Nick, CJohnson and DeSean, probably the best WRs team in your league, while having 3 top WRs+1 top QB, still able to grab Hillis. good job. flex is a little weak, but nothing is perfect, not like we have $2000 to spend in auction. TE is average. Tobert and Starks might swap with Jones depending on schedule for flex position.

team 5 - QB Ryan, some people speak very high of him, i personally rank him as average, or slightly above average at best. average WRs, average RB+flex, average BN, nothing really stand out, not very competitive. holding money for too long when all the other talented player have been drafted?

team - 6 when you draft Rodger in auction draft, you know you got and want the strongest QB (vick and brady fan please calm down) in NFL.
above average WRs, but i have very high expectation in Wallace this year. Strong RBs, and with Freeman and M. William getting better, Blount will benefit too.

team 7 strong QB Rivers, overall, good WRs, with WR3 slightly weak, okay WR2 and good WR1. good RBs with Charles, but i won't count too much on Benson, since team 7 got really good bench, R.Bush, M.Crabtree, D.Bess. just swap them around according to the schedule for flex position.

team 8 - Big Ben, in most cheat sheet, he is about No.10 QB, imo, he should be at least 7 (rodger, vick, brady, brees, rivers, manning), with manning injury, could be No.6. higher rank than Ryan, Schaub or Romo. if you can get Big Ben in auction for cheap, get him, use him, and spend money somewhere else. Top TE. below average WRs and RBs is average at best, that if Felix Jones does good job on his part.

team 9 - weak QB in first few week when manning is gone, it's all depends on Manning now. Good WR1 and RB1, WR2, WR3, Flex are all average at best. Bench player Hightower might give you some edge if you put in Flex depends on his season performance. strong TE

team 10 - decent QB, strong WRs, strong CJ2K+Best. with Addai in BN. weak TE, but who cares about TE if you can cover QB, RB/flex and WR this well in 12ppl league.

team 11 - Top TE, good bench, and....well, nothing is good. unlike snake draft, autodraft in auction draft will always fail.

team 12 - Top QB, average RB+flex, weak WRs. overspend on Vick?

Championship: team 4, 6, 10 are very close imo, if i had to pick one, and it will base on personal preference, i'll pick 6 (i like Rodger and Wallace, only if you get Mendenhall, it will be my dream team)
order will go 1st 6, 2nd 4, 3rd 10

Play-off team: 4, 6, 10,
fighting last spot for play-off: 1, 2, 3, 7

Good competitive league, having 3 top team, 4 good team, and not 1-2 overpower team

Thanks! The consenus seems to be that Team 6 is the team to beat. He always drafts a good team, but seems to run into bad luck each year. Hopefully that happens again.

Really appreciate everyone's feedback. I'm going to send the link to my league so that they can see the Cafe's pre-season opinions.

Wow, thanks for the complete feedback! Yes it is a 3WR, 1RB, 1WR/RB league. Most teams use a RB for the WR/RB slot. (Side-note: We have a $200 Budget)

Team 1- Peterson was $50 and Rice was $47, so not terribly high.
Team 2 - Yep, this guy is a big Steelers fan.
Team 5 - Hit the nail on the head. He saved all his money at the beginning and had a bunch leftover at the end.
Team 11 - Yeah, poor guy couldn't make the draft. I was surprised he got any half-decent players.
Team 12 - Vick went for $48, which was $9 more than Rodgers so he did overspend somewhat. After that he spent too much on middling talent like BGE for $11, Floyd for $11 and Moore for $11.

Loved the predictions. It's always been a competitive league with good owners.
