12-man league, no PPR.

QB: Russell Wilson
QB: Jameis Winston
RB: Devonta Freeman
RB: Todd Gurley
RB: Jonathan Stewart
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Allen Robinson
WR: Keenan Allen
WR: Michael Crabtree
WR: Eric Decker
WR: Kevin White
TE: Martellus Bennett
TE: OJ Howard
D: Patriots
D: Bengals
K: Cairo Santos

I like to call this team, the guys who were good 2 or 3 years ago lol. I had last pick, which I don't mind other than it's hard to react to how the board shakes out because it's so long between picks. My thought process was Wilson may return to great fantasy status, or, get hurt in which case I like Jameis' upside. I wanted Mariota but he went first.

I'm also hoping for a comeback from Gurley as the Rams have tried to address their O-line plus Watkins will hopefully open up the D.

WR is a little concerning as it really depends on if A Rob can turn it around and Allen can stay healthy. I was happy to get Crabtree and Decker where I did, esp in a non-PPR league as Decker is a TD magnet and Crabtree has been outperforming Cooper.

Yeah man I agree on all your points. They only thing really lacking is the RB depth. I do believe that the WR depth on your team is great. Even if A Rob doesn't perform or K. Allen gets hurt theres plenty of depth their. I really like the QBs. I think Winston is going to be a solid QB all year.

12-team Standard Scoring

Starters

QB - Derek Carr
RB - David Johnson
RB - Ezekiel Elliott
WR - Amari Cooper
WR - Jarvis Landry
FLEX - Joe Mixon
TE - Tyler Eifert
DEF - Jacksonville
K - Brandon McManus

Bench

RB - Darren McFadden (Starter until Zeke returns)
WR - Martavis Bryant
WR - Kevin White
WR - John Brown
WR - Josh Doctson
WR - Danny Amendola
TE - Evan Engram

I think I feel really good about this team once Elliott returns (#1 and #2 RBs from last season) but the lack of depth makes me really nervous. I like the potential depth of my WRs. I forgot about the TE position until late. Luckily Eifert was there but with his injury history obviously need a decent backup and I'm not sure if Engram is my guy but we shall see I guess.

Starters look solid with Mixon being the only real unproven guy. I think anyone can run behind Dallas' line so McFadden should do well, I tried to grab him but missed out. My guess is Bryant will be starting a lot for you, I was big on him coming out of college and as long as he stays on the field, he's a big playmaker.

I think you should definitely package some WRs for another RB.

Pretty solid for a 12-team league. I'm not sure Crabtree is going to continue to outpace Cooper this season. That seemed very odd. Decker is a bit of a dart throw but I have him in a couple leagues as well as I thought he was undervalued. I like the TD upside in Gurley (provided they can advance the ball that far) and Freeman. Allen/Robinson have a potential to be solid...for PPR. I'm not sure how many opportunities Robinson is going to have for TD production again this year but he was also someone that was pretty criminally undervalued this year in drafts so I also have him.

Russel's line scares me but if he can stay healthy he has top-5 fantasy potential. I love Winston's upside as well. I'm not sure how much Howard will play, but hopefully he gets some end-zone looks if you're forced to play him as a TE2.

Should be a competitive team.

Just finished my money league draft. I thought it came out pretty good. Deep benches are a blessing and a curse. Anyway, here's how it ended up. 10-team PPR. I was pick 9.

QB: Ben Roethlisberger
RB: Melvin Gordon
RB: Kareem Hunt
WR: A.J. Green
WR: Doug Baldwin
RB/WR: Tyreek hill
TE: Jordan Reed
D: Cardinals
K: Boswell

Bench

QB: Dalton
RB: Woodhead
RB: Rawls
RB: Sproles
RB: Hill
RB: Rodgers
WR: Robinson
WR: Thielen
TE: Eifert

Analysis: I feel like I'm pretty strong top-to-bottom. I'm placing a bit of faith in Hunt that he's truly the "feature" back and it's not much of a committee. I like the volume Gordon should get as a three-down guy. I have no idea what to expect from Woodhead, but fantasy "gurus" sure loved him and he was going late in all my drafts. In PPR, we'll see how it goes. I'm cautiously optimistic.

I don't know how I ended up with Green AND Baldwin but they're potential WR1s every week so I'll take that and scram. I went pure upside with Tyreek, figuring his role is only going to get bigger with Maclin gone. He just might be a bit boom/bust.

Reed scared me but I love his upside in PPR too much but made sure to back him up with Eifert.

I felt pretty fortunate to land Big Ben at the end of round 9. If Bryant can keep his head on straight Ben should have a pretty great year.

With such a deep bench I took a bunch of RBs late, figuring they'd have more value than the WRs who were left. I'm usually active on the wire so guys like Hill and Rodgers will probably be pretty expendable if someone attractive becomes available.

Getting Green and Baldwin is definitely a score. Tyreek is probably a boom/bust pick but Smith seems to like throwing to him. Hopefully return TD's count as points for him, that should be an added bonus.

Feeling pretty good with my Hunt/Hill duo tonight.

My team is 4-1 thanks in large part to Gurley and Crabtree. Unfortunately the injury bug has bit rather hard, I lost ARob and White the first week. OJ Howard is a bust (but I picked up Brate) and I dropped Charles along the way.

Picked up Breida hoping he outplays Hyde. I still have Decker, who has been disappointing. Anyone have thoughts on dropping Decker for someone? Maybe Kendall Wright? He and Trubisky seem to have good chemistry.
