Love the RB's... Locked up 2 of the top backs in the first 2 rounds so you can't go wrong there.
I've always been a fan of Big Ben, especially this year. With new OC Todd Haley, and Mendenhall down, I think they will be airing it out more then ever, and Ben has the weapons to be highly successful.
Love Greg Jennings and Decker this season. They'll be really solid. I'm not a Harvin fan, so I'm pretty biased against him. Depth is questionable behind those 3, so you gotta hope Manning stays healthy so Decker blows up.
TE- Not sold on Cook as a #1... I think you could have done better.
My recommendation: Once you know Ryan Mathews is going to come back 100%, I would slide Decker in the WR #2 spot, and see if you can package Harvin in a deal. Depending on how the rest of your team is doing, maybe look at one of the top tier TE's, so you stay strong across the board. Mathews would slide right into your flex spot, and your trotting out 3 great RB's along with Jennings and Decker... All in all, solid job.
Thanks for the help. I guess I like Jared Cook more than you, but I think he'll be a solid TE when it's all said and done. Yes I could have done better at TE but the value in my opinion I was getting with some of those players, I could not pass them up, so I had to wait on a TE. Here's to hoping Ryan Mathews gets healthy and becomes a beast when he comes back
Love your squad, hate your QB. Mathews will be huge this year and with those 3 starting RBs you will be close to unstoppable. Upgrade at QB by dealing one of your receivers and you should be a lock for the playoffs.
QB: Tom Brady, Andy Dalton RB: Charles, Lynch, Martin, Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Rashad jennings, Joe McKnight, Leon Washington WR/TE: Antonio Brown, Brandon Lloyd, Randall Cobb, Ted Ginn K: Bryant DST: Bills
I can only echo what most have said. Not a fan of Big Ben. I get what your saying about him throwing more, but he isn't going to be anywhere near those top tier QBs still. I am a tad concerned about Harvin and while I think Jennings will have a great year, I don't think it's gonna be a HUGE year like ESPN seems to...my reason is, Rodgers is going to be hard pressed to improve on his year last year. ESPN had Jennings getting a few more TDs and a few hundred more yards alone. But we know Rodgers spreads it out. To me that insinuates that Rodgers is going to be even better this year, which I just don't see (although would welcome because he is my QB LOL!).
Overall very solid with those 2 question marks IMO.
I echo the sentiments of the posters above, absolutely love your 3 RBs, in that format you're going to dominate if everyone stays healthy, but not in love with your QB. Decker looked great yesterday against the 49ers, I would look to deal Harvin and slide Decker into that 2 slot when Matthews comes back healthy. See if you can unload Harvin to another team with QB depth. Look for someone with either of the Mannings or Romo. If you can get a slight upgrade at QB, you will be golden. Good job on your draft though!
