What are the starting spots? QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex, TE, K, D?

Wayne is a low end WR1 but I have a few worries about him. He's struggled down the stretch each of the last 2 years and age is going to catch up soon. Not saying he's a bad pick though. And I really like that you have Garcon in case Wayne really stuggles.
Like both Holmes & Harvin as WR2. Holmes I see with a little more upside and think he's going low in most drafts. Harvin should be a focal point of the Vikings offense. Really like him in PPRs.

Becoming worried about Chris Johnson missing regular season time. That'd be a crippling blow.
DeAngelo Williams is a solid but not spectacular RB2 if he stays healthy and Bush has RB2 upside if he stays healthy. Plenty of "if's" for both lol. Not knocking either pick though.
Who is your 4th RB? You mention Bush twice.

Why do people continue to take 2 TEs? There are likely free agents TE's in your league as good as Keller. Drop him and pick up a WR or RB flier to hold for the first couple weeks.

Obviously you're set at QB.

Not knowing what any of the other teams in your league look like, I'd say you're squad is about middle of the road with a lean towards the top half of the league.

Yeah that is the starting spots. Wayne somewhat terrifies me but it was the best option at the time. Hopefully Chris Johnson will get signed here soon I can't see the Titans not restructuring his contract  my other RB is Ryan Grant, he was a steal if I remember correctly. Thanks for the info man advice. This is a league that I am in with some work buddies...no cash involved so Im really not THAT interested in it but hey, its football season!

I really didn't like having the #3 pick at all....I briefly considered reaching and take Ray Rice at 3 but couldn't do it for some reason

Taking Rice 3rd isn't reaching. It's probably where you have to draft him right now. I had him 4th and think you have to move him ahead of Chris Johnson until this contract mess gets figured out.

Johnson's holdout scares me too. I won't be taking him in my draft this weekend. 
Williams and bush could be OK. 
TE is good but bl is right you only need to draft 1. 
WR for you scares me. I am staying off the colts guys until I know when Manning will be back or how he'll play. 

Clearly your whole team comes down to Johnson if he plays and plays well you have a shot. If not get on the waiver wire, I'd drop that extra tight end and get Johnson's cuff now, Javon Ringer I think.

Considering the situation, I think it would be difficult for Ringer to be undrafted in any league. I doubt you will find him on the wire and if you do, can I get into your league and how much is it?

I do think Ringer has the edge to start if Johnson misses games, but he's injured and has been missing practices. Keep an eye on Jamie Harper.
