I think you've got a really good team here man, only nitpick would be more RB depth, but that's the same for everyone usually lol. Good job.

2 things stood out right away, you are burning 2 bench spots on Brandon Myers and Jay Cutler. Personally i dont like to carry backups when i have somewhat reliable starters that i plan on using, so you might keep Myers if you arent sold on Cook but not sure if you would ever use Cutler outside of a bye week for Colin. I think those roster spots can probably be put to better use to get a little more RB depth if there is anyone still out there

As far as your actual players go i think you did good but its a bit risky of a draft. Kapernick Im not sold on but depending on where you took him its really hard to argue with him being your starter in a 12 team league. Your WRs are rock solid as well as far as your 2 starters go, and obviously AP is a stud. After that though i have a little bit of trepidation with your team.

Your 3 RBs behind AP are 3 guys that we havent seen very much of in the NFL, and while i like them all individually i dont know if i like the idea of that being my entire RB core. There is a case to be made for each of these guys being very good, but an equally valid case for each of them flaming out leaving you with no RB2. Im also not a personal fan of Jones, Rice or Sanders and dont think you really have anyone with upside on your bench; although i think with the WRs you have starting that isnt a huge issue. If 2 of your 3 RBs behind AP pan out you will have a great team but i just think you have a lot of risk at that position.

Help on mine??

Awesome insight.. first as you said I'm keeping myers around due to the fact I'm not 100% sold on jared cook although he will be my starter. I see your point on the RB position and am thinking about picking up either Bernard Pierce or Knowshon Moreno as the available RB's are pretty slim. Any thoughts on these two or maybe any deep sleepers you can think of?

I'll go give your rosters a look right now.

Thanks.

Went ahead and added Knowshon Moreno at the expense of Cutler.

I love the Moreno pickup, he has a shot at being THE guy in Denver so great gamble there. If he doesnt do much in the first few weeks he will be the guy you can drop
