This league has been around for over 10 years, so the owners are all pretty active and know what they are doing. Nevertheless, some teams are obviously better than others and one has a glaring issue at QB. The draft was a Yahoo! auction with a $200 budget. Standard scoring with no PPR.
I am omiting which team is mine in order to not cloud your opinion, but I will say that the draft did not go as planned and my receivers are pretty weak.
So, without further ado, which team do you think had the best draft? As always, WHIR.

You can always tell the leagues where people know what they are doing. If I had my choice of teams to have as my own I would pick team #12 with 4 potential fantasy studs as starters, not much depth though. I also like #1 because of it's depth.
Please take a look at mine if you get a chance thanks
It looks like a competitive league, a lot of what I see is depth issues but being able to play only a max of 2 RBs helps.
The team I like the best is team 1 having Wallace and White at WR1 and WR2 is great, but Chad Ochocinco is sorta a question mark because he has had 7 straight seasons with at least 1000+ yard but yet different system and has not looked good in the preseason. And then having Forte, Best, and Hightower to mix and match is great would have liked if this team picked up the handcuff for Best but not bad. And also like the upside of Stafford with him not as the primary QB that way if he gets on a hot streak could overtake Roethlisberger as your stater if Stafford stays healthy.
I am intrigued by team 9 only in the manner of what could happen. I like Rodgers, not high on Wayne because of Peyton, Gates not on the injury list is a definite plus, solid RBs, good backups. But the interesting part is Julio Jones and Plaxico Burress this is really a gamble, I see it as high risk, high reward can Burress really return to form? how much will Jones get the ball thrown to him and what can he do with it for 16 games?
Team 12 great starters, horrible bench
Team 4 good QB, good RBs (except bench), good TE, lackluster WRs and bench
Team 10 good RBs, like Colston and Smith, good backup RBs. problem here is Peyton's health and the WR backups.
Team 11 Good QB, good WRs, don't like the TE because of QB situation, decent bench players like them as the number 2 over all team in the league.
I think team 12 has the best overall starting team, although he has a horrible bench. If anyone was to get hurt during the season he could be in a lot of trouble. Second best team to me would be number 11
Should be a good competitive league. I love 11 & 12. Like 3 except Manning. Team 1 is solid.
I don't like team 4 - think defenses will shut down Stevie Johnson this year and not crazy about Mendenhall this year. Not crazy about 6.
Let us know who you are and I'm happy to give more specific feedback.
Thank you all for the feedback! It is much appreciated. Unfortunately, no one seems to care for my team. Not even me! My team is... #6.
I clearly have a weak group of receivers and it all happened due to poor money management. I first drafted McFadden for $40, which I was ok with. But then I tried to inflate the price of Vick since I know there are a bunch of big Eagles fans in my league. He went for less then I thought he would ($52) and thus he ended up on my team. This left me with $108 to fill all my other positions. Then I made my big bone-head move and drafted Turner for $39. I know he will be a good RB2, but it crippled me in filling my WR slots. WRs staring selling for high prices and I was left with the leftovers.
While I think my team still stands a chance, it is clearly inferior to the more balanced teams. I am considering trading Turner for an upgrade at WR. Maybe to team 5.
