Work $ league: 12-team PPR

QB: Tyrod Taylor
RB: C.J. Anderson
RB: Ryan Mathews
WR: Dez Bryant
WR: T.Y. Hilton
TE: Rob Gronkowski
Flex: Michael Floyd
K: A White Guy
Def: Vikings

Bench: Andy Dalton, Jordan Matthews, Tyler Lockett, Justin Forsett, Devontae Booker, Christine Michael, Dwayne Allen

Evaluation: Not thrilled about my QBs (RGIII, Tannehill, Prescot all available), or RBs, but the good WRs kept falling and I had to jump on board. I feel pretty good about my TE (obviously) and WRs. I feel like my bench is pretty deep with some high-potential guys. Overall I'm not thrilled but it could be worse. We'll see what happens with Mathews and Anderson.

Since its PPR your strategy makes sense. I'm a bigger fan of Dalton than most and think he'll be your starter most weeks. RBs could use upgrade but that's tough in a 12 man.

Did Elliot fall now that Romo is injured?

No. Why would Elliot fall? If anything he'll probably get even more work. Unless you meant Dez?

No I meant Elliot, without Romo I think the defenses can key on him even more. Plus he's ranked awfully high for someone whose unproven. Don't get me wrong, I think he's going to do well but some of the guys he's ahead of... Yeah I don't know I pull the trigger on him in the 1st.

10-team 1/2 PPR league. It's a keeper league so I got to keep L. Bell (5th rd), D Hopkins (15th rd), and D. Freeman (17th rd). Am I blinded because it's my team or is this team amazing?

QB - Eli Manning
RB - L. Bell
RB - D. Freeman
WR - D. Hopkins
WR - B. Marshall
TE - J. Witten
FLEX - L. Mccoy
K - B. Walsh
DEF - Arizona

Bench
WR - J. Edelman, D. Baldwin, M. Crabtree, L. Fitzgerald
RB - DeAngelo Williams, J. Forsett, C. Sims
TE - Tyler Eifert

I agree with your evaluation other than your take on your QBs. I think Taylor is solid and if he gets hurt you have Dalton who IMO is solid also. Both are going to get you solid points week in week out. I think the RBs could end up working out. I don't know why but I'm high on Forsett having a good year this year so it could end up well if I'm right haha.

Yup looks good although starting off with Bell and D. Freeman helps a ton! Sounds like you had a great draft last year. I think Baldwin and Crabtree will have a good year.

10 team standard

QB- Blake Bortles
WR- Dez Bryant
WR- Keenan Allen
WR- Donte Moncrief
RB- Ezikiel Elliott
RB- Devonta Freemon
TE- Coby Fleener
K- Chandler Catanzaro
DEF- Kansas City

Bench
QB- Phillip Rivers
WR- Josh Gordon
WR- Tavon Auston
RB- Melvin Gordon
TE- Dwayne Allen
DEF- Pittsburgh

Wasn't happy taking Cowboy WR / RB. But BPA was in play. I might try to unload Dez for Allen Robinson and have two QB WR combos, which I love. Might wait, and hope Dak Prescot plays well week 1.

Okay heres my 12 team $100 buy in. Yahoo ranked me as draft winner with an A grade.

QB- Blake Bortles
WR- Antonio Brown
WR- Amari Cooper
WR- Donte Moncreif
RB- LeSean McCoy
RB- Melvin Gordon
TE- Martellus Bennett
K- Chandler Catanzaro
DEF- Vikings

Bench

QB- Matthew Stafford
WR- John Brown
WR- Laquon Treadwell
RB- Arian Foster
TE- Eric Ebron
DEF- Cincinnati

I was shocked in such a savvy league, John Brown lasted until the 8th round, 3 rounds after his teammate Michael Floyd. Or that I snatched TE Bennett in round 11.

Thats pretty strong, drop Forsett for Tevin Coleman, word is they want Coleman to have the job in Atlanta.

Dez might be a target monster this year, as Dak may lock onto him. Not a fan of TY in ppr, rather have Moncrief. Not a bad team tho, Tyrod is Cam Newton lite. Is McKinnon available? If so dump Forsett for him. Bradford new to the offense, and a bad line, might lend itself to quick passes to RBs in certain games.
