    Okay this is my first team of the year. We only had a 13 round draft, so I still have no kicker and a few IDP to fill in with free agency. IDK why they decided to only do 13 rounds, but wtf not my call.

    12 Teams, .2 PPR, .2 PPRushAttempt, .2PPCompletion, 4 Defensive Players,
    QB Joe Flacco
    RB Jamaal Charles
    RB Chris Johnson
    WR AJ Green
    WR Antonio Pierce
    TE Jared Cook
    FLEX Reggie Bush/ Darren McFadden
    DST Patriots
    LB Bobby Wagner (Seattle)
    DL
    DB
    DefensiveFlex
    Bench Jordy Nelson
    Bench Lamar Miller
    Bench Matt Schaub

    QB and WR went flying off the board so I literally took 5 RB in the first 8 rounds to stack them up as trading chips. I was 8th overall, so I snagged AJ Green with the 17th pick and Chris Johnson with the 32nd, which I thought was good value.

    Thoughts?

    It's a pretty weak team IMO. :(

    The good:
    Green
    Charles
    CJ
    Bush

    The bad:
    Flacco
    Cook
    McFadden


    I like what you have at RB, although Andy Reid can't always be trusted when it comes to rushing. But reports are that he'll be using Charles like he used Westbrook which bodes well because Charles is even better. I love CJ for FF this year, personally. Only concern is Greene being a TD vulture. I also like Bush, but I think his owners need to get LeShoure later in the draft.

    Antonio Pierce is a retired LB, btw ;) I know you meant Brown - and I am not high on Brown whatsoever. He is their #1 now and I doubt he's as effective with Wallace gone. I would almost rather just get Emmanuel Sanders later in the draft. I said the same thing last year with Brown over Wallace.

    Cook (and Fisher) can't be trusted. I lol at the idea of Tavon Austin being rookie of the year. Lmao okay... Obviously the "experts" who claim that don't know Fisher very well. If Austin gets over 50 catches or even sniffs 1000 yards, I'd be shocked.

    I wouldn't mind drafting DMC in the 6th or 7th, but I would need Rashad Jennings on my bench to feel more comfortable... We know DMC will miss a good amount of time.

    First off....I think Jamaal Charles will end up a top 3 fantasy RB by the end of the year. He's going to probably rush 250 times and catch 75 catches and be close to 2000 yards from scrimmage. My RB depth is absolutely absurd, and Jordy Nelson will prove to be more valuable than Antonio Brown, once he comes back healthy from this knee. Between Joe Flacco and Matt Shaub I plan on platooning QB, and at 11th and 12th round picks I think the value is fine. Andrew Luck went in the third round, Tom Brady in the first round, I got Joe Flacco and Matt Schaub in the 11 and 12. idk how you could think this is a weak squad. Jamaal Charles AJ Green Chris Johnson and Reggie Bush all on the same squad?

    You have to remember this is a 12 team too so there is slim pickings towards the end. A good 12 team is a bad 10 team. It's not bad for a 12 team. I would say middle of the road.

    Hey, you asked for our thoughts. That's just my opinion.

    Like I said, I like what you did at RB, but I consider your team somewhat weak in every other position.

    I've been in a similar situation at QB before and was able to make it to the championship but lost... But believe me when I say my team (and it was a 12 man league in 2011) was much stronger. I can't remember all of my players, but I had AP, Megatron, Nicks, and Cruz (via FA). There were several other solid ones.

    It's a decent team, I hate PPR leagues though.. that's just personal feeling. My league you just get an extra point for 5 catches & another point for 10 catches. Adds a little value to WRs, but not as much as PPR leagues.

    It's hard for me to judge your team, being as how I never do PPR leagues. Overally, I say the team looks weak.

    I don't think Flacco will be great this year. He lost his #1 WR (Boldin) and Pitta due to injury. I think you'll see the Ravens turn more into a run first team w/ Rice & Peirce. I think you'll see him around 3500-3700 yards & 20 TDs max.

    Love your RBs. Charles is risky, because we don't know what Andy Reid has planned for him. McCoy was starting to get less and less carries, hopefully that's not the case with Jamaal. I think CJ will end up as a Top-5 fantasy RB this year. Reggie Bush will be a steal, he'll be perfect in Detriot. McFadden will end up injured, trade him right now.

    Love AJ Green, but as a 1st rounder... eh. I guess it is a PPR league. Don't know who Antonio Peirce is, unless you're talking about the ex-Giants ILB.

    Dish McFadden on the first sucker in need of a rb. He's the least reliable RB imo. He cant stay healthy or put up any kind of reliable numbers. You cant even really play him based on match ups like you could CJ because he doesn't even torch the crappy teams with any consistency.
