*********************


Overarching theme of my draft so far has clearly been "talent over opportunity".


9/10 turn: Planned to spend both these picks bolstering my RB corps as I don't have a proven stud up top. Bradshaw looked better last season than he has in years before suffering the (inevitable) injury. Obviously I'm hoping he re-ups with the Colts where his path to touches is clearest, but no matter where he goes he'll be at minimum a 3rd-down back and solid pass-catcher out of the backfield (something that always seems to be underrated in these survivors). West may not be as flashy as Crowell, but he's got enough talent to ensure at least a time-share in an offense that is going to absolutely run the heck out of the ball. A second-year RB breakout from the draft class of 2014 to match the first-year WR breakout sure would be nice for my squad ...


11/12 turn: Took a gamble here ... really wanted either Blackmon or Latimer, but noticed that Ref had only 1 TE and 4 WRs already and figured one of the two would make it back to me at 12.02 so I'd better lock down the TE I wanted first ... oh well, sometimes the bear gets you. I was a big buyer of Gates last summer as I thought people were kicking dirt on his grave too soon ... now I think it's possible the pendulum has swung the other way and it may be Green who surprises to the upside this year. As for Jones, well, not a bad consolation prize ... I'm a noted Sanu skeptic and think Jones will elbow him out of the #2 role relatively easily upon his return ... and the #2 opposite AJG has historically been a good fantasy producer. Yeah, the 10 TDs from Jones' breakout year were kinda fluky, but even a stat line like 60/700/7 would make a top-40 type WR out of WR67 off the board.


Like Ref said, being near the turn means you have to grab PKs and D/STs sooner rather than later, so having a backup or two at every position already gives me a little flexibility.

Captain, you may want to change the first post (one with draft order and picks) to reflect 20 rounds. My guess, from the way people are drafting, is that they are assuming this is 18 rounds.

He'd be in some serious trouble ... if there were any real correlation between where a D/ST gets drafted and how they perform.

Last year's top 5 D/STs by ADP finished 4, 14, 15, 26, 24 in scoring.

And last year's top 5 highest scoring D/STs were drafted 20th, 13th, 8th, 1st, 15th on average.

I think Bass'll be OK.

2.02 - Aaron Rodgers, QB GB - QB1
8.02 - Teddy Bridgewater, QB MIN - QB21

Best combo in the WSLs at the highest-scoring position. I generally don't like using a lot of pick capital at QB, especially in these leagues - but being near the ends in these drafts can kind of force your hand as the QB runs can be epic. It's a shame the breakout season I expect from Teddy may go mostly to waste for me. A+

3.15 - Carlos Hyde, RB SF - RB17
5.15 - Jerick McKinnon, RB MIN - RB27
9.15 - Ahmad Bradshaw, RB FA - RB43
10.02 - Terrance West, RB CLE - RB46
17.15 - Benny Cunningham, RB STL - RB65

In the late teens and 20s on RB boards, the choices usually come down to talented guys in murky situations vs. lesser talents in good situations. I opted for the latter in last year's survivors and my results were ... Ben Tate, Toby Gerhart, and Bishop Sankey. Yeah, thanks, I'll go with plan A this time around. I'm sky-high on McKinnon's talent and, at the time I made the pick, was a lot more certain than I am now that Minny would be cutting ties with ADP. In that interim, Bradshaw's also gotten himself busted for pot - maybe he'll get suspended and so actually still be healthy in December? West will get lots of touches, timeshare or not, because what else are the Browns going to do on offense - have JFF operate the Run 'n' Shoot? Cunningham is another PPR specialist who should be good for RB45-level performance at an RB65 price tag. Not a single "sure thing" in the group, but at least there's a high ceiling here. C

1.15 - Julio Jones, WR ATL - WR6
4.02 - Brandin Cooks, WR NO - WR22
7.15 - Steve Smith Sr., WR BAL - WR44
12.02 - Marvin Jones, WR CIN - WR67
14.02 - Stedman Bailey, WR STL - WR75
19.15 - Marlon Brown, WR BAL - WR100
20.02 - Sammie Coates, WR ROOK - WR101

Last year Julio finished 3rd in targets, 3rd in catches, 3rd in yards ... and 29th in TDs. Doesn't take a Mensa member to figure out which stat is the outlier. I don't know that Cooks will ever be a true #1, but when Drew Brees is your QB you don't need to be 6'5" to produce like a fantasy WR1. I wanted shares in Trestman's offense, and got two guys who could be either the #1A and #3 or #1 / 2 next season - yes, please. I was torn between Jones and Bailey at 12.02, and was shocked to be able to land them both two rounds apart. Jones ought to muscle Sanu aside to retake the #2 spot opposite AJG, while Bailey may well lead the team in catches in '15. Coates might be the next DHB but has enough natural talent to be worth a 20th-round flyer. Really like this group ... a stud up top, lots of depth, and a nice mix of PPR guys and red-zone threats. A

6.02 - Jordan Cameron, TE FA - TE12
11.15 - Ladarius Green, TE SD - TE28
15.15 - Dennis Pitta, TE BAL - TE29

Picking at 1.15 I knew I'd have zero shot at Gronk or Graham, so the only criterion I concerned myself with was: "Is this guy capable of a top-5 season?" And each of these guys has the talent to do it. Base-jumper type risk, of course, which is why I went three-deep here ... but in the right circumstances I could have three bona-fide TE1s working for me at a 2PPR position. Or, you know, Pitta could retire, Cam could get his bell rung again, and I could be entering October with a single 2nd-string TE. C+

13.15 - Stephen Gostkowski, K NE - K2
16.02 - Dolphins, D/ST MIA - D19
17.15 - Buccaneers, D/ST TB - D31

I know it puts me in the minority, but I'm perfectly happy rolling solo on kicker in the survivors. Kickers are protected to an extent that makes QBs look like MMA fighters, and once injuries start piling up, a WR7 or TE3 can make all the difference in December. I doubt I'll be saying the same about Patrick Murray or Josh Scobee. As for my defenses ... meh, I landed the Eagles and Colts in the 20-25 range last offseason and they finished #1 and #7 respectively. It's all pretty random. D, as in "don't care"

Overall: There's a ton of risk baked into the WSL anyway, so figured I might as well go ahead and embrace it. My roster is absolutely loaded with talent but just as loaded with risk ... youth, injury histories, FA destinations, the well-being of one Stephen Gostkowski, I could go on. Apart from A-Rod, I'm also light on perennial high-powered offenses, which means I need teams like the Ravens, Vikes, and Rams to make some strides. This could wind up the highest-scoring squad in the WSLs or ignominiously flame out Week 1, but I'm pretty confident it's not gonna finish in 8th or 9th place.

My general feeling is that servicable WR's can be found late AND there's so much more variability at WR, that in Best Ball, you can get away with waiting and still put together a good squad. I definitely am putting that theory to the test. Went lean at all the other positions, so injuries could kill me.

While I overrated some guys (Robert Woods, who I almost took in the 8th, and then got in the 11th), I agreed with about half the picks everyone else made in rounds 18-20. Before work, I would write down 5-6 names so I could pick quickly during the day, and inevitably, only one was left when my pick would come up.

QB

Romo (4.09) and Flacco (7.08)

Counting on the Cowboys o-line still being awesome and Flacco staying healthy. If those two things happen, I should be ok here.

RB

Lacy (1.08), Morris (2.09), Gore (10.09), Yeldon (16.09)

It's rare for anyone to go RB/RB anymore, so that helped Morris slip to 2.09. The top 2 better be strong, because I've got something old and something new backing them up. I don't love taking rookies before the draft, but I didn't see any other RB to like in the 16th so figured I'd roll the dice. Last year, I got Bradshaw in the 20th, so hopefully I hit lightning in a bottle again.

WR

LaFell (5.08), K Wright (6.09), Baldwin (8.09), Woods (11.08), J Wright (17.08), Kearse (18.09), Murphy (19.08), T Gabriel (20.09)

Can I get 3 good scores from 8 guys each week? I hope so. I believe in Teddy Bridgewater so I'm hoping he brings Wright with him. Russell Wilson getting a lot of love, hopefully he brings Baldwin and/or Kearse with him. Gabriel was a complete flyer.

TE

Bennett (3.08), Allen (9.08)

A little worried about the coaching change in Chicago messing up Bennett, but feel like Allen could easily be a TE1 this year if he can stay healthy. TE in general dropped further than a thought it would, so I probably could have passed on Bennett (taking DJax instead) and then Rodgers in the 16th or Housler in the 18th and been fine.

PK

Parkey (13.08), Carpenter (14.09)

I went a bit early here, especially for the backup, but feel like if you can get a kicker who should hold his job, you grab him. So many of the position players in these rounds are a dart throw, that picking players who should score is good. Parkey kicking for Chip Kelly and Rex likes to stall in the red zone and rely on his kicker, so I think Carpenter can be better than last year.

Def

Houston (12.09), Indy (15.08)

Houston is good, probably could have waited a round to make my defensive backup pick.

Overall, I'm happy with the team. I'm top heavy everywhere but WR, and there I'm taking the shotgun approach.

6.01 Tom Brady QB(9) NE

19.16 Ryan Fitzpatrick QB(32) HOU

Brady felt like serious value at the 5/6 turn and QB9 should be his floor. Brady is a red zone beast and has the best weapon in football. Fitzpatrick is still under contract in HOU and could be starter. If not sounds like some teams are interested in aquiring him. Hoping I don't pay the price for waiting on QB2, but Brady should keep me in the mix.

3.16 Latavius Murray RB(18) OAK
4.01 Tre Mason RB(19) STL

9.16 Devonta Freeman RB(44) ATL

10.01 Christine Michael RB(45) SEA

Man I rolled the dice here. Everytime the turn came up I said to myself I need to add more here but just couldn't do it. Real big weakness here, but if Murray and Mason end up being the real deal, I could be ok if they stay healthy. At some point later in the draft, I just said screw it, I'mm gonna run with these guys. I like Freeman as an RB3 with RB1 potential depending on how things shake out. I have gone back and forth on Lynch's situation, but either way, Michael should see some PT. If Lynch retires or goes elswhere, I got some gold, otherwise this group is not real strong. I expect big things from Murray, more of the same from Mason, an arrow pointing up for Freeman and either a wasted pick or a top 5 back in Michael.

1.16 Calvin Johnson WR(7) DET
2.01 A.J. Green WR(8) CIN

7.15 Davante Adams WR(45) GB

8.01 Percy Harvin WR(46) NYJ

11.16 Justin Blackmon WR(64) JAC

12.01 Cody Latimer WR(65) DEN

17.16 Cole Beasley WR(84) DAL

With two solid guys at the top I swung for the fences on pretty much every other pick other than Beasley (who I was happy to add late). Cobb or no Cobb Adams could be a solid pick and outperform WR45. Harvin a decent pick in best ball and I think he has a better year than last year. Blackmon could put this group over the top and again with CJ and Green on board he is worth the risk that late. Julius Thomas and Welker should both be gone opening the door for Latamer and he could be a steal. Beasley seems to have carved out that Welkian, Edelman, Hartlinian type of receiver role and adds some week to week stability to the risk of the guys above him. I might need some monster weeks here to cover my RB's.

5.16 Jordan Reed TE(11) WAS

16.01 Richard Rodgers TE(30) GB

20.01 Owen Daniels TE(37) FA

Decided to add TE3 instead of RB5 at the last turn when I saw Daniels still available. There was some discussion about Pitta and Daniels in one of the threads and I intentionally did not comment on Daniels while chiming in a little on Pitta. I was targeting Daniels late, but never thought I would be able to get him in the last round. I think Pitta is done, but I took Daniels more on a feeling that I think there is a real good chance he ends up in DEN. I think Daniels actually has some bargaining power here as BAL would probably love to bring him back with or without Pitta (insurance), but with Julius Thomas probably leaving DEN, there will be a need for a pass ctaching TE in a Peyton Manning offense. Think I saw somewhere that Daniels has always been on a team with Kubiak. Whoever the TE in DEN ends up being, will put up some fantasy points. Quite honestly, IMO there may be a better chance that Daniels is in DEN than there is they resign Julius. Julius will want too much money. Anyway, I rolled the dice that in a 2 PPR TE league, what Daniels may add to this team week to week will be more than an RB5 for me. Reed and Rodgers were a decent combo, but some question marks.

14.01 Dan Bailey PK(3) DAL

15.16 Nick Folk PK(23) NYJ

Huge Bailey fan, thought about riding solo, but didn't think this team could afford any automatic donuts. Folk always seems to outperform his draft position.

13.16 Detroit Lions DST(14)

18.01 New Orleans Saints DST (30)

Love DET DST, looks like they really want Suh back. Two dome teams, some noise......meh.

Overall: Need Brady to have a big year and for the cards to fall right at RB. WR should be solid, but I probably could have afforded to lose a body in the middle of the draft here if it would have meant adding another RB who could have at least contributed a little. However, if that RB group shakes out in my favor, the dice roll could pay off in a big way. If I can get Murray and Mason to make a leap and both out play their 18/19 draft spot I could be on to something. Not my best effort here, but it could be worse.

3.13 Drew Brees, QB4 NO

17.13 Geno Smith, QB30 NYJ

Couldn’t resist Brees at the end of the 3rd. Was targeting a late round pick for QB2 in Mettenberger but he was taken in the 12th and then kept punting the position. Thought about going solo or taking 2 more in Geno and Mallet/Fitzpatrick but really didn’t want to have 2 backups to Brees. Coin landed on Geno…I don’t even think he’ll be the starter so it might have been a wasted pick and better to go solo at that point.

I think Lynch stays in Sea an puts up another top 5 -10 season. Ivory was a bit of a reach but I wanted/needed a RB here and felt Ivory may see more work with the CJnoK release rumor. Thinking about it more, maybe NYJ bring in someone better than CJ and Ivory loses snaps? Thought about Bush, FJax and Vereen but felt safer with Ivory. I think Jennings is being overlooked here and Blount a great RB4. Balt should bring Forsett back, as he seems like a great fit with Trestman but who knows? If not, will Taliaferro earn more work? Not sure of his receiving ability. Overall, I like this group but it hinges on Lynch.

1.13 Odell Beckham, WR4 NYG

4.04 Julian Edelman, WR24 NE

5.13 Allen Robinson, WR34 JAC

8.04 Charles Johnson, WR47 MIN

12.04 Chris Matthews, WR68 SEA

18.04 Dorial Green-Beckham, WR86 rookie

19.13 Albert Wilson, WR97 KC

I’m buying on Odell. Fully expect targets to decrease from the 15/game he was getting. But he should still see a ton even with Cruz back (if he’s back-his injury is no joke). Edelman doesn’t get the love he should in PPR. His last 9 games played, he averaged 20 pts/game. Robinson was looking good before the injury. I like him but this may have been a little early considering the injury. WRs and a foot stress fracture can spell trouble. I like Johnson and expect him to improve with a full with Bridgewater. Top 4 here seem like a good core. Matthews was a wtf play after the Super Bowl and was a bit premature. Him, DGB and Wilson are all fliers that I hope can add as score now and then.

6.04 Delanie Walker, TE13 TEN

11.13 Jared Cook, TE26 STL

Walker had a career year and I expect some regression next year. TEN should have better QB/WR/RB play next year. Neither Walker nor Cook have the upside of Kelce, Cameron, Reed, Ertz, etc but both are solid and dependable – expect 50-60 catches, 600-700 yd and 5 TDs from each. Had this combo in a league last year and performed will, averaging 18/game.

14.04 Adam Vinatieri, K5 IND

15.13 Randy Bullock, K21 HOU

13.13 Baltimore, DST12

16.04 Dallas, DST20

2 kickers with jobs and no home weather issues. Happy with the defense pairing.

Possible issues to overcome will be Brees bye week, Lynch’s retirement, and whether or not some of the WR fliers pan out. Overall, I like this team.

Here is my team:

7.12 Sweet Love - Andy Dalton, QB19, CIN

10.05 Sweet Love - Sam Bradford, QB25, STL

Average at best. I was fortunate to get Dalton where I did (big dropoff after him), and think Bradford will remain in STL. Two starters, happy enough. C+

2.05 Sweet Love - Jeremy Hill, RB9, CIN

3.12 Sweet Love - Mark Ingram, RB15, NO

9.12 Sweet Love - Andre Williams, RB40, NYG

14.05 Sweet Love - Duke Johnson, RB60, rookie

19.12 Sweet Love - Trent Richardson, RB72, IND

Hill, Ingram and Williams is a helluva 1-2-3 punch. In fact, if I knew I could get Williams in the 9th, and the rest of my RBs where I got them, I would have drafted a QB early instead of Ingram. Either way, this is the most solid group I have, and likely one of the more solid groups of RBs in the draft. Duke Johnson is looking like a steal, and I think Richardson is a good flier where I got him. A

1.12 Sweet Love - Dez Bryant, WR3, DAL

4.05 Sweet Love - Mike Wallace, WR25, MIA

5.12 Sweet Love - Eric Decker, WR33, NYJ

8.05 Sweet Love - Pierre Garcon, WR48, WAS

12.05 Sweet Love - Malcom Floyd, WR69, SD

18.05 Sweet Love - Tyler Lockett, WR87, rookie

20.05 Sweet Love - Nelson Agholor, WR102, rookie

Well, this group started off strong, but then I pooped the bed. Bryant, Wallace, Decker and Garcon would be decent for a 12 teamer. But then I follow it up with Floyd (can you say "the most boring 600 yards on the planet"), Lockett and Agholor (two rookies with little expected impact? Just dumb...remember this, I took Lockett and could have had Marquise Lee. That will come back to bite me. B-

6.05 Sweet Love - Coby Fleener, TE14, IND

11.12 Sweet Love - Jace Amaro, TE25, NYJ

Underwhelming. I think I reached a round on Fleener, but Amaro could be a nice pick up where I got him. Should have gone with a third TE, but I felt like I was running out of decent options towards the end. C+

13.12 Sweet Love - New York Jets DST11

16.05 Sweet Love - Minnesota Viking DST21

15.12 Sweet Love - Josh Brown, K20, NYG

17.12 Sweet Love - Ryan Succop, K28, TEN

Jets Def could be nasty, and Brown could have a really good year with a lot of scoring oppy's. Succop and TEN in general are not inspiring. C+

Overall a decent draft. I am not barren anywhere, but I am also weaker in two of the main scoring categories (QB and TE). That will end up killing me, as I think I have really good depth in general. What I do not have are "upside players" outside of Duke Johnson and Jace Amaro. That is a problem. OVERALL - B-

Captain's Mates ...

and I will say before I rate these that either some really love all their players or aren't grading on the same scale

QB

5.01 Captain Hook - Russell Wilson, QB6, SEA

12.16 Captain Hook - Zach Mettenberger, QB29, TEN

While generally I wait a little to draft a middle pair of quarterbacks I did think there would be a run and wanted to get Wilson who if Beast Mode is not back will be throwing a lot more this year. Even if he isn't he was seventh in ppg among the quarterbacks last year. Got sniped on my targets for QB2 but I don't think Tennessee will draft a qb early so Mettenberger should be the starter all year and he averaged over 20 ppg in the weeks he was full time.

GRADE - solid B but B+/A- if Lynch retires

RB

1.01 Captain Hook - Le'Veon Bell, RB1, PIT

8.16 Captain Hook - Denard Robinson, RB36, JAX

10.16 Captain Hook - Branden Oliver, RB51, SD

11.01 Captain Hook - Pierre Thomas, RB52, NO

20.16 Captain Hook - Daryl Richardson, RB76, NYJ

Bell is the good news - the bad is waiting for the 32nd pick so it led me to draft a committee for RB2 which I think is correct in this format anyway. Very happy to add Robinson, Oliver and Thomas and maybe I should have drafted a third quarterback with my last pick but with Le'Veon missing the first two games and Chris Johnson not on the Jets there is a good chance that if they don't draft a RB early that Richardson will be in line for a share with Ivory and be very worthwhile.

Grade B+ (maybe B with Bell out two games)

WR

2.16 Captain Hook - Jeremy Maclin, WR15, PHL

4.16 Captain Hook - Martavis Bryant, WR28, PIT

6.16 Captain Hook - Anquan Boldin, WR39, SF

9.01 Captain Hook - John Brown, WR52, AZ

17.01 Captain Hook - Devin Funchess, WR78, rookie

18.16 Captain Hook - Riley Cooper, WR92, PHL

19.01 Captain Hook - Jaelen Strong, WR93, rookie

Assuming Maclin is back with the Eagles I think the first three are very good starters. Brown is a good big play supporter. When drafting Funchess I wondered whether MFL will count him as a WR or TE - may depend on who drafts him but I think he will be good for a few scores. Cooper is steady and even better if Maclin goes elsewhere. Strong may be a :homer: pick but watching him at ASU the guy has really good hands and ran good routes for a college player. ... and oh yeah had a great combine which may push him into the first round.

Grade - B/B+

TE

3.01 Captain Hook - Greg Olsen, TE4, CAR

7.01 Captain Hook - Charles Clay15, TE, MIA

Some questioned my doubling up here but this is one of the most important positions and if I waited to draft a stiff I would lose the advantage of having Olsen. Not sure where Clay plays but he was top 15 for TE in total points and ppg so a few good weeks there picks up Olsen for games where Panthers run too much (although I think that is disappearing this year as they let Cam throw).

Grade - B+

K & DST

14.16 Captain Hook - Matt Prater, K12, FA

15.01 Captain Hook - Phil Dawson, K13, SF

13.01 Captain Hook - Arizona Cardinals DST7

16.16 Captain Hook - Atlanta Falcons DST26

Have two of each and expect Atlanta with coaching changes to be much better (well yeah would be hard to be 27th or worse again)
Overall I think this is a team that has a chance to run the table - key is to avoid an ugly early week and as long as bye weeks aren't terrible that should be doable.
GRADE - solid B and likely better depending on factors mentioned

DAMN - I really wanted to draft McCown with that last pick and looks like I should have now

Johnny Manziel now worth less than a nickel - wonder if they waive him if they can't trade him?

17.16 Cole Beasley WR(84) DAL

5.16 Jordan Reed TE(11) WAS

16.01 Richard Rodgers TE(30) GB

20.01 Owen Daniels TE(37) DEN

Decided to add TE3 instead of RB5 at the last turn when I saw Daniels still available. There was some discussion about Pitta and Daniels in one of the threads and I intentionally did not comment on Daniels while chiming in a little on Pitta. I was targeting Daniels late, but never thought I would be able to get him in the last round. I think Pitta is done, but I took Daniels more on a feeling that I think there is a real good chance he ends up in DEN. I think Daniels actually has some bargaining power here as BAL would probably love to bring him back with or without Pitta (insurance), but with Julius Thomas probably leaving DEN, there will be a need for a pass ctaching TE in a Peyton Manning offense. Think I saw somewhere that Daniels has always been on a team with Kubiak. Whoever the TE in DEN ends up being, will put up some fantasy points. Quite honestly, IMO there may be a better chance that Daniels is in DEN than there is they resign Julius. Julius will want too much money. Anyway, I rolled the dice that in a 2 PPR TE league, what Daniels may add to this team week to week will be more than an RB5 for me. Reed and Rodgers were a decent combo, but some question marks.

Adams lost a little luster with Cobb coming back but WR3 in GB has fantasy value.....Daniels to DEN should solidfy that important position in this league and combined with strength at WR could help carry tough weeks at RB.....Ngata to DET nice small bump to DET after losing Suh....

Well, good thing I took Ingram, because the Vereen pick will impact Andre Williams somewhat. With that said, the Jets Def should be monstrous and I like Bradford's value in Philly better than STL...guess it is a wash thus far.

Taking a look at my team.

1.05 Busman - DeMarco Murray, RB3, DAL

2.12 Busman - Emmanuel Sanders, WR13, DEN

3.05 Busman - Golden Tate, WR18, DET

4.12 Busman - Antonio Gates, TE7, SD

5.05 Busman - Ben Roethlisberger, QB7, PIT

6.12 Busman - Donte Moncrief, WR37, IND

7.05 Busman - Larry Fitzgerald, WR41, AZ

8.12 Busman - Fred Jackson, RB33, BUF

9.05 Busman - Bishop Sankey, RB37, TEN

10.12 Busman - Marcus Mariota, QB26, rookie

11.05 Busman - Eric Ebron, TE23, DET

12.12 Busman - Denver Broncos DST4

13.05 Busman - Mohamed Sanu, WR72, CIN

14.12 Busman - Nick Novak, K24, SD

15.05 Busman - Kai Forbath, K25, WAS

16.12 Busman - Chicago Bears DST25

17.05 Busman - Marques Wilson, WR79, CHI

18.12 Busman - Antone Smith, RB70, ATL

19.05 Busman - Marcel Reese, RB71, OAK

20.12 Busman - Wes Welker, WR107, FA

At first blush we seem pretty old. Last four picks could end up giving me nothing, although you'd think Wilson and Smith are better off with Marshall and SJax out of their respective pictures. Reese is always underused, and Welker is likely done.

QB situation is average at best. Good depth at wideout but lacking punch.

Seems like a mid-season flame out.

In all both FA and the schedule have been a net plus for this squad.

I expected Gore to be out in SF, which is why I didn't have many qualms about Hyde being my RB1. What I didn't expect was a washed-up Reggie Bush serving as his "replacement" - so, while I don't know whether Hyde can be a bellcow, I know he'll get the chance. Who knows what will happen with the AP soap opera, but my money is still on him being elsewhere for the start of TC. If so, McKinnon gets a big bump which should more than offset Bradshaw's fall after a near-total lack of FA interest.

Graham is out in NO which has to be good news for Cooks' reception totals, and I'm baffled but happy that the Ravens let Torrey walk while bringing in no pass-catchers of note to replace him - bump Steve and Marlon! And the Rams got Foles (who I've long been a big booster of) to replace the inconsistent, oft-injured Bradford. It's entirely possible that four of my 7 WRs could lead their teams in targets this season.

Cameron goes to Miami to replace Clay, which is likewise a big positive ... not that almost anywhere other than Cleveland wouldn't have been a big positive for him. Hopefully the sunny weather will help the dude stay healthy this season. Pitta's status is still up in the air, but a Cameron/L. Green duo should be above-average even if he doesn't play a down in '15.

The fact that no two of my top 3 at any position share a bye was just icing on the cake ... we'll see what the draft brings but overall, I'm starting to really like this team's chances.
