1. (3) Ray Rice(Bal - RB) - Great pick and probably the most surefire RB pro bowler in fantasy football. Flat out tank.
2. (18) Matthew Stafford(Det - QB) - Wow! Can't believe he fell that far to you. Excellent pick and fantastic value.
3. (23) Trent Richardson(Cle - RB) Richardson did have that scope in his leg following that injury, but he's expected to get 250-300 carries this year. Think Cadillac Williams first year (which was damn good).
4. (38) Steve Smith(Car - WR) - With Cam at QB, you can't go wrong here. Should be a lethal combo against this season.
5. (43) Jordy Nelson(GB - WR) - Very nice pick for the 5th round, might end up being the #1 option in GB this season. Great value here.
6. (58) Vernon Davis(SF - TE) - Always a contender for the top TE in fantasy. He could be even better this season as Smith loves to dish it to him.
7. (63) Peyton Manning(Den - QB) - Really don't think you needed to take him. I would try and trade him. This pick should have gone to grab a third RB.
8. (78) Reggie Wayne(Ind - WR) - Solid pick, I have him in my keeper too. I think he'll be a great option (and only) for Andrew Luck to bomb it to.
9. (83) Shonn Greene(NYJ - RB) - Not a fan of this pick--I wouldn't want any Jets on my fantasy team whatsoever. Greene has no O-line and a scared Sanchez.
10. (98) Anquan Boldin(Bal - WR) - Could be due for a good season as Flacco is only getting better at spreading the ball around. Him and Torrey Smith should be great.
11. (103) Randy Moss(SF - WR) - High risk/High reward. Apparently he is in shape and looking decent but he's competing with Crabtree, Davis, Manningha for catches.
12. (118) C.J. Spiller(Buf - RB) - I think he'll have a lot better of a season than most expect--Fred Jackson is coming off a serious injury and Spiller is a reception monster if you are in a PPR league.
13. (123) Stephen Gostkowski(NE - K) - Solid Kicker. Can't go wrong here.
14. (138) Randall Cobb(GB - WR) - I would honestly not even bother. He's not a serious option for receiving yards and only is good for a 2-3 TDs a year.
15. (143) Buffalo(Buf - DEF) - Mario Williams is a big addition but they'll be tested by New England twice and the rest of the solid AFC passing teams.

I hope overall your team does amazing, but that's because I have a lot of the same players

I have Rice, Smith, Wayne, and Moss on my team too.

Your starters are very solid, your only chink in the armor is some depth issues as BigBlue pointed out.

Looks like a solid draft!!I agree on trying to move Manning.You got a great QB in Stafford.I dont see any valve in cobb.he's like the 4th look from Rogers.Id package him and Greene and try to trade them too. overall you had a good draft

Peyton Manning was a pure value pick and a luxury I felt I could have. I think he can either be a great trading chip or he can be solid if something happens to stafford. I know he has top 3 upside so I couldnt let myself pass on him.

Top 8 picks of the draft went great for you Your starting lineup is sick. Peyton looked dead eye against the Niners last night and could be a great trade chip. I would def look to move him after a couple of good games. Like I said your starting lineup rocks, but if you trade Peyton, maybe look at upgrading one of your WRs or getting a better RB3 than Greene.

Thoughts on mine? viewtopic.php?f=44&t=516379
