Seriously in an 8 team draft every team is going to look good in a bubble, just about every team will have 3-4 studs which is pretty much what you have. There is really no way to handicap an 8 man league (especially without seeing the rosters), but for a league that small i would say your team is average.
It is easy to look at an 8 team roster that has Marshall and AP on it and think it is out of this world but you have to remember that there is another guy out there with potentially Doug Martin, Brees and Aj Green... 8 Team leagues are just silly since each roster is essentially a divisional All-Star team. All the teams will look stacked but in my mind for 8 teams yours could struggle with depth at the RB position with lots of question marks there, a weakness at TE and another question mark at QB. There is a reason Kaep isn't being drafted in the first 8 rounds in most 12 man leagues. If you build a random team taking every 8th pick from the Cafe Mock draft you could wind up with Charles, Green, Dez, Gronk, and Vjax or Martin, Rodgers, Forte, SJax,and Percy Harvin. I'd almost rather have either of those starting 5 guys than what you have and these are random.
I won't say your team is bad, just average. There is definitely a tonne of depth at WR but beyond AP you have a whole boat load of RB2-3 type guys. Maybe one blossoms into a RB1... but maybe not. The bottom line is 8 team league rosters all look great but without comparing them to something equivalent they all look incredible.
