Not bad overall. Very slightly worried about your 2nd RB, but I think at least one of Greene/Gore will work out nicely in the end. I haven't played in an IDP league, so I can't comment on that. You may want another WR, as who knows when Britt will be able to play, but I think with rotating your flex (since you start only 2 WRs) you can minimize the WR depth issue. I tend to stay away from any Redskin RBs, so if you get any indication of which back gets the starting RB job in Wash (if that is even possible) then you might have to make a decision on whether to keep Hightower. As for TE, Witten *may* be risky with his injury, but the news of his recovery has sounded promising. I haven't heard much on Craig Stevens, nor have seen many people draft him. Were there no other TEs available?

honestly, i just grabbed stevens as a last round handcuff for witten. i was willing to eat 1-2 weeks without a solid TE to get witten in the 8th round

I like your team. I really think having a top tier QB is gonna be huge this year, so I like snagging Brees in the first round (especially in a 12 team league). You sacrifice at RB a bit, but I think the guys you have behind Lynch are all pretty solid, and you can do the matchup thing until the dust settles (and try to snag someone off waivers when someone emerges). I like what you drafted at WR, too. I really like Smith this year.

thanks for the help on mine.

I like the team in a standard scoring league but because it's ppr I'm not super high on it. None of your runningbacks catch a bunch of passes and your wide receivers aren't really volume pass catchers. Having Brees will help offset your problems but I would see if I couldn't catch another owner sleeping and trade a name like Jackson or Gore for a higher end PPR player.
I'm sorta new here...
