QB Stafford
RB Rice
RB Beanie Wells
WR Calvin Johnson
WR Vincent Jackson
WR/TE Jermichael Finley

K Nick Folk (jets)

Bench
Ryan Fitzpatrick (bradford was the target and got taken right before me)

Derrick Ward
Mike Sims Walker
Robert Meachem

Drafted 4th out of 12 and feel pretty good about it. If Stafford stays healthy i should be competitive every week.

Very true, if Stafford stays healthy you have a very competitve team. I think you look pretty solid all around, especially your starting lineup.

PMd you also. Help me with 2 WRs?

Looks pretty solid. Statford if healthy is going to be a top QB. If beanie also shows up, you could be one of the top teams in your league. If you lose statford, you will be in trouble even if you start fitzpatrick. In my opinion I dont even carry fitzpatrick unless you really think someone would scoop him up. If there is a better player on the waivers drop fitz otherwise stay put and enjoy the ride.

I only grabbed Fitzpatrick out of desperation. WW is ugly, Campbell, Hasselbeck, and Alex Smith are probably the only viable starters. At least in buffalo they will be losing and thus have to air it out.

*Edit* unless anyone thinks i would be better off dropping fitzpatrick and carrying Shaun Hill as the elusive QB handcuff.

I can also see that the Vick owner didnt get Vince Young... ;-)

I think Hill as a handcuff is more valuable than fitzpatrick who I think has no value. With that said, if there is a non-qb available which might be a better player either now or down the road it might be best not to carry any other QB. Its about how much risk you want. I carry no extra qbs except rivers. if rivers was to go down, i am screwed either way.

Well I'll put it this way. I was reading over the roster assuming this had to be a 10 team league... then saw that this is a 12 team league.

Not too excited about Wells but you could do worse and with Stafford/Rice/CJ/VJ/Finley you should be more than fine

Well, the only question i have is, for a back up QB i woulda rather taken hassleback a veteran over fitz, but then again a lot of people say fitz is a very deep sleeper this year.. BUt all in all let just hope that your starter qb Stafford can stay healthy.... i really dont like you bench or wells as number 2 only cuz wells hasnt yet proved to me he can do the job in ari. just watch out for kolb to air it out a lot this year..I think your bench is verry weak overall and could be better.......to be honest starting line up is more than likely phoenaminal but overall you sorta want depth. long behold you did just fine.


please rate my team too!

I think you're solid all around man. Got to love Stafford's upside and he's been killing it in the pre-season. Those Stafford, Calvin Johnson YD hookups will be nice. ;-D

Really like your WR's and TE--clearly the strength of your team. I'm not crazy about Beanie, but he'll get enough touches to be useful. His effectiveness is dependent on the Kolb-Fitz connection working out, IMO. Like your QB, but I worry somewhat about his health. Overall a solid roster. Thanks for the help on mine.

Just proposed a trade to the Arian Foster owner to send Derrick Ward and get Flacco. Hopefully he will bite on the fear that Foster doesnt play and wants his primary backup. Had Flacco last year and wasnt great but wasnt terrible, plus he plays arizona when Stafford is on a bye.
