How's my team, and what should I do now?

I did a lot of practice mock drafts and they helped me hone in on a strategy that I think played out well in the early rounds. But in the later rounds someone kept swooping players right before my pick and I don't think I did well.

What do you guys think? And what would you do now, if you were me? There's pretty slim pickins' on the wavier wire....

12 team league with standard scoring, except TD passes are worth 6.

QB - Romo
WR - Roddy White
WR - Holmes
WR - Garcon
RB - Gore
RB - Blount
FLX - Tolbert
TE - Clark
DEF - Saints
K - Tynes

BN - Michael Bush
BN - Roy Williams
BN - Woodhead
BN - James Jones
BN - Emmanuel Sanders
BN - Aaron Hernandez


I'm not a big fan of having two TEs. And I don't have a backup QB. But Hernandez is a decent player and all the QBs left are trash. Thinking about dropping Hernandez for the Cards D though because I like their week 1 match up (Car) better than NO's (GB).

Advice?
Who was your first pick? I'm assuming you went with a White/Gore combo in the first 2. Well, IMO, your team is not bad, but definitely needs some work. You need a better 3rd WR and RB depth is a concern. Gore is certainly going to miss a few games, and personally I'm not sold as Blount as a #2.

Since I helped you, can you help me? I need trade advice. I give: A.Gates, S.Greene, R.Grant, I get: V.Jackson, M.Forte. Should I pull the trigger?

That's a tough trade question. Mainly because Grant is such an unknown right now, and Gates is always a huge injury concern. I think I would do the trade, because I like Forte more than a lot of people do, and Gates and Grant both scare me. I think making the trade is the safer option. But I think you have a higher ceiling with what you have.

What other TEs and WRs do you have? Do you need VJack? And who will be starting at TE?


And thanks for the advice on my team. I went White, Gore, Blount, Romo, Clark. I really think Blount is going to be one of the top RBs this year. I could be totally wrong, but he has very little competition for carries, is a workhorse type back, and plays for a good offense.

But your point about depth is well founded. It's tough in my league. Not a lot of good players left. I'm really trying to gamble what I can get lucky with just one other player. My theory was that if I had 5 boom or bust type guys on my bench maybe one of them would turn out to be a good regular start.

I picked up Javon Ringer (going without a kicker until the last minute) just in case the Chris Johnson thing doesn't get resolved by week 1.

The next best WR options out there are Bess and Jerome Simpson. But I'm not sure either of them are better than what I have.

yes you pull the damn trigger.

I have Graham as my other TE.

Yeah that Chris Johnson contract situation sucks! He's on my fantasy team, and I should have picked up his back-up.

Anyways, finding a good player in a 12 team league will be hard to find on the waiver wire. Bess would be a good option only if it's PPR. If your league is really deep, try picking up Little. He might be this year's Mike Williams. But don't get mad at me if he busts though.
Very good team. Love Romo this year for a big bounce back season. Roddy White and Santonio give you beastly WRs. Big fan of Blount this year. My advice is to ditch Garcon. The Colts are a sinking ship as Manning's status is in doubt.

How about my team 10 man league...

QB - Brees
RB - Blount
RB - R. Grant
RB/WR - J. Best
WR - Andre Johnson
WR - DeSean Jackson
TE - Vernon Davis
D - Ravens
K - Cundiff (Baltimore)

Bench

QB Flacco
QB McCoy
RB B. Wells
RB C. Spiller
WR Boldin
WR J. Nelson GB
WR J. Ford OAK
