Some really nice choices in the last few posts. I agree completely with Fenikz, and think Brown is the WR to own this year in Arizona. Fitz is fading fast and Floyd is not the darling people wanted him to be last year.

I'm much higher on Ertz than Kelce. I just don't want anything to do with offensive players in KC not named Charles. Ertz, on the other hand, has the top 2 WRs gone over two seasons now and is looking like the veteran presence that could eat up targets.

Really love the WRs you guys have mentioned. Most of them have an average draft position in the 50-80 range, and I think Robinson, Landry, and Agholor will outperform their draft position.

The buzz is that Denver will run more this year. It's tough to believe that actually happens with Manning, but you have to plan for a bit less production than the last few seasons. I guess it depends on what kind of 'preseason business' you're doing. In dynasty, I'm a little worried about his age vs. potential production with an aging Peyton and then potentially disappearing once Manning is gone. All of which can change based on his contract situation, anyway.

Coming back to this, the only thing I would really worry about getting into right now as far as "'business'" goes is the keep price, which is auction style, and even then, I feel like I'm in a pretty good spot for having both RB and a starting WR spot set. I'm not in a financial bind or anything like that.

There are four guys that are feasibly available to myself, with the league setup being 3 WR, 1 TE, no flex, no ppr. Demaryius and Jimmy Graham were the bigger names, each carrying a substantial but fair market salary that I can afford. Alshon Jeffery and DeAndre Hopkins were the more potentially long term options.

This is a sneaky good team imo... I like Vjax over Marshall just based on QB play but Marshall is still a good WR3

I play exclusively PPR, so not much of an expert on non-ppr teams. Anywhere, my thoughts:

Short version: I effin love this team! :-)

Longer version:

Really strong team, pretty stacked on every position except for TE.

QB: I assume you picked Luck in the 2nd round? In general I'm not big on picking QBs early, and would much rather just wait and get guys in the later rounds (Round 7-8-later). However, with the way your team came out, it worked out very well for you. You have an absolute stud in Luck, and I would be shocked if he wasn't in the top-2 of QBs, when the season is over.
That also means, I'm a bit iffy on why you have two backup QBs in Eli and Tannehill. You're not really looking to bench Luck in any week except his bye, and I would just stream a QB for that week, freeing up to roster spots for other positions. That's not a huge deal at all, but just something I would've done different.

RB: Lynch is a stud, and that's it.
I'm not super high on Ellington, but since you're a Cards fan, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on that one. Also, Cards o-line should be improved with the addition of Iupati and Humphries. (Now if only they can get something out of Jonathan Cooper..)
If line is better and Ellington is fully healthy, I might eat a little crow about him.
Randle as a flex is nice. I'm not big on him in general, but that's more a question of ADP, and people picking him as an high-end RB2. As a flex, he is a fairly risk free pick, with very good upside. I like it.
Cobb is a solid backup, if he is able to beat out Bishop Sankey for carries. If not, he is easily droppable, and you could find an emerging RB on the waiver wire early in the season instead. Would've liked another backup.

WR:
Three very solid starters, who imo are good for both ppr and non ppr. All of them should easily see 120+ targets, and have good upside in regards to TD production, due to their size, and the fact that they are all likely to be the #1 target in their respective teams passing offense. Very solid.
I like Brown, not a huge fan of Adams. Would probably have spent on of the backup QB picks on a backup WR with some upside instead.

TE: Easily your weakest spot, but hey, we can't all get Gronk on our teams ;-) At least Cameron has a decent chunk of upside. In between his injury history, and with the slew of targets in the Dolphins passing game, he is a pretty boom/bust pick imo. I don't have much faith in ASJ, so probably would've gone another route on that one. But if you gotta have a weak spot, TE is not the worst one to have.

D/ST: Not much to add. I'm a bit nervous about the Cards defense, due to the departure of Bowles, but at the very worst they should still be a solid unit overall.

K: Gostkowski is a high end kicker, good job.

Just my 2C

Had my first league draft the other night. 12 man PPR. I had the 5th pick and had to keep a rookie that was on my roster from a year ago. I think I did extremely well.


QB: Drew Brees/Ryan Tannahill
RB: Marshawn Lynch/Frank Gore/TJ Yeldon/Arian Foster/Isaiah Crowell/Ryan Mathews/Monte Ball
WR: Randall Cobb/Julian Edleman/Marques Colson/Torrey Smith/DeVante Parker
TE: Delanie Walker/Vernon Davis/Ladarius Green
K: Steve Hauschka
D: Bengals

I got Brees in the 6th round. I went in the draft wanting Tannahill as my starter, but when teams kept taking other QBs over Brees, I just had to jump in the sixth.

I know my TEs suck, but I'm probably going to work my RB depth to get a better one, but hoping that Ladarius Green and Rivers hit it off the first four weeks or Mariota finds comfort in Walker as he eases in. I'm also banking on a contract year Vernon Davis in a different offense bounces back in a HUGE way.

Even though I kept Crowell, I still wanted to load up on RBs because of the lack of depth of them. I took Foster in the 7th round as a stash, but I expect him for my playoff push.

I originally didn't have Parker or Ball on my roster, but Parker went undrafted so I dropped Kenny Stills for him and placed Foster on my IR and picked up Ball. We will see if Anderson is gonna remain healthy and efficient all year and I'm assuming Ball is the second RB in that offense.
