    QB: Matt Ryan, Josh Freeman

    RB: Chris Johnson, Doug Martin, Peyton Hillis

    WR: Jordy Nelson, Julio Jones, Eric Decker, Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, Darius Heyward-Bey

    DST: Titans

    K: I forgot his name, he plays in a dome though.

    I traded McFadden and Antonio Brown for Julio and Doug Martin. I like the Ryan to Julio combo and I like Martin this year as well. I'm sure McFadden will eventually get hurt like always...

    Also, I know I need more RB's so going to have to make another trade eventually. I have trade offer out that's Decker and Hillis for Jimmy Graham. In my league instead of TE it's WR/TE...I've done that in my league for 3 years now and really like it. We also do double points for 40+ yards TD's. Hoping Ryan throws a few to Julio and Chris Johnson has a CJ2K year haha

    We are a WR driven league so that's why I have so many. Not to to happy bout my RB situation but what can you do wasn't a tone to choose from in my opinion.

    Professor,

    How many teams in your league?

    Your QB and WR core does look very nice.

    As far as TE goes.
    I had Cook rated as #13 on my list this year, but I would see about possibly working out a trade to upgrade that position if I were you. There is most likely a team or two in your league who has a backup TE that would prove to be a step up for you. Ofcourse this depends on if we are talking about a 10 team league or a 14 team league that you are in. I can only speculate that you are in a 12 team league.

    Your RB group is very shady imo.

    I sincerely hope Gore does better this year, but I went with Hunter instead since I could get him in the later rounds and he tends to be their multi-attack weapon since he gets quite a few passes on top of his touchs at running. I have Gore in one of my keeper/money leagues and he really hurt me last year. His numbers DRASTICALY dropped off for some reason. I am guessing bad oline grouped with his injuries, but never put my finger on it. Like I said, I hope he does a lot better this year. If Gore returns to his 2010 form you should be ok.

    I also stayed the hell away from the gaytriots Run game this year since I have never had much luck with any team with large "run by committee" situations in the backfield. Not until they start getting hit with injuries in the backfield where one back begins getting more touches. That is usually the time where RBs in large committees become more desirable imo. Did you pick up Ridley for your green-Ellis handcuff by any chance?

    Shaun Green and Ricky Williams. ugh. Guess I will have to take the wait and see approach with either of those guys this year.

    I also think you are good with Bironas and Giants D. Both have been solid over the past 3-4 years. Nice choices for both of those.

    Team 1 (10-team league; 3rd pick)
    QB: Brady, Flacco
    RB: T. Richardson, Sproles, R. Jennings, Ridley, Benson
    WR: S. Smith (CAR), B. Llyod, M. Austin, Britt
    TE: Hernandez, Cook
    K: Hartley
    DEF: New England, Buffalo

    Really, really pleased with this team. No complaints whatsoever.

    Team 2 (12-team league; 6th pick)
    QB: Vick, The Rapist
    RB: Bush, R. Jennings, Ridley, F. Jones, LeShoure, A. Morris
    WR: Megatron, Welker, Decker, Blackmon
    TE: J. Graham
    K: Hartley
    DEF: New England, Buffalo

    This team I'm more concerned about. I was hoping to get one of the top 3 QBs with my first round pick but all three were gone by the time it got to my pick (6th). Still, I ended up getting Vick in the 4th and The Rapist in the 8th so I think I did alright there, considering. My WR group is pretty beast with Megatron and Welker as my 1 and 2. RB is a disaster obviously. When Reggie Bush is your #1 then you got problems. But I value RB less than any other skill position, especially since this a PPR league. We shall see...

    Sawdust,

    Yeah, once the top tier qbs are gone in the 1st round you might as well load up on a good rb, wr and try to pick up one of the Mannings or possibly Shaub in the 3rd.

    Vick has hosed me in the past due to injuries. But he can really put up good numbers if he stays healthy. One of those high risk/high reward players. Rapistburger is pretty average as far as numbers goes, but you could do much worse for a #2.

    I have Reggie Bush on three of my teams. I think he will be alright. Fred Jones is seriously underrated imo. good solid pick there. Sure you aren't loaded with super studs at RB, but I think you have a pretty decent group to work with.

    Awesome WR core you have there. Megatron, Welker and Decker..... can't ask for anything better. Blackmon would be a stud if he played on a better team, but we'll see.

    You have arguably the best TE according to the charts. I personally think Gates will have an epic year since Rivers has lost all of his great receivers and will most likely go to his blankey even more than ever. But if Graham gets even close to what he did last year you are definitely kicking some butt at TE.

    Great job on that second team.

    Thats a pertty solid team. Your picks for WR are sick. RBs look like your only weakness. Theres a lot of unkowns about what you'll get from cj and richardson. love the doug martin pick. got him in two of my leagues. he's a sleeper.

    i'm in 4 leagues. still 2 more drafts this weekend.

    QB: Cam, Locker
    RB: steven jackson, doug martin, hillis, david wilson(sleeper), mccluster
    WR: Calvin, torrey smith, brandon lloyd, sidney rice, jerome simpson
    TE: Rudolph, Cook
    D: niners, cinci
    k: crosby

    Wasn't too happy with the draft above. PPR league. thats a 12 team league and i picked 12th. took calvin and then cam back to back at 12 and 13. I think Lloyd is going to put up good numbers this year. and torrey is the new number 1 in bmore. my RBs are weak though. before It came around for my 3rd pick all the safe RB picks or decent ones were gone for the most part. besides jackson. everyone in this league knows their ****.

    then my other league...

    QB: Matty Ice, flacco
    RB: CJ, Mcfadden, Doug Martin, Mccluster
    WR: Nicks, Bowe, Stevie Johnson, Malcom Floyd
    TE: Hernandez, Cook
    D: Lions
    K: Prater

    Thanks for the opinion I agree bout the running backs except green-Ellis plays at cincy now and he is pretty much it for them. Also I'm in a ten man league. Thanks
