Rate My Squad (Suggestions Very Much Appreciated)

12 team league, 6 pts for all TDs, .5 PPR. QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, W/R, TE, D, K

I drafted #8 overall:

QB: Freeman
RB: McCoy
RB: Hillis
WR: Fitzgerald
WR: Holmes
Flex: J. Best
TE: Witten
DEF: Atlanta
K: Henery

Bench:
QB: Flacco
RB: Woodhead, Ringer, Jennings
WR: J. Nelson, Santana Moss
Your team is alright. I can't say I am the biggest fan or your backs (starting or backup) and your QB is average. Between Flacco and Freeman though you should be alright. Don't think they will win/lose games for you. Starting receivers are solid, but backups are a little weak.

Overall I think you could end up having a good season if you don't sustain any injuries to your RBs and if you have really good in-season pick ups.

Thanks for the input. I really like McCoy, I wasn't planning on taking Hillis at all, but I couldn't pass him up late in the 3rd round, which I thought was very good value for him. The QB situation is kinda shaky, but my plan wasn't to take a QB until after the 6th round, and the league I'm in the guys take QBs very early. Even Shaub and Ryan were gone by round 3.

I like that I have Moss as a backup because he usually brings in a good amound of receptions, and someone has to catch passes there. Nelson is a sleeper pick for sure. My big concern is RB depth because if I have injuries and the backups I picked up in case the starters go down/don't play (Ringer and Jennings), I will be in some trouble.

As always, like you said, I'll remain very active and alert on the waiver wire. Thanks again for chiming in.

Yeah I like McCoy as well, but I do not think Hillis is going to repeat. But you did get good value for him. I went with the same strategy for a QB. I ended up picking Stafford kindof late (can't remember the round) but I thought I got great value for him and he has great upside if he doesn't get injured.

Moss as a backup is pretty good, but he is starting to get up there and he might start declining. Put this with their QB situation and I think it is a gamble. Definitely a decent backup though.

I agree with you that the backs are the biggest concern. None of your backups are starters so who knows if they will get the amount of touches you need for the bye week or if one of your players goes down.

Good luck with the season. If you don't mind could you check out my team. Like the insight you gave while describing your team.
