I didn't draft a backup QB, but I think I will be fine. We have a 10 man league and it is very competitive. 

QB-
Aaron Rodgers

RB
Ryan Matthews
Fred Jackson 
Reggie Bush
Cedric Benson
James Starks
Leon Washington 
Mikel Leshoure

WR
Victor Cruz
Marques Colsten
Kenny Britt
Stevie Johnson
Santonio Holmes
Micheal Crabtree

TE
Aaron Hernandez

D
Steelers Defense




Thought I had a pretty solid draft to be honest. Let me know how you all feel about it

B+ ... I like it.

Best QB and overall fantasy point producer in Rodgers.

RBs are good.  I would have liked it more before Mathews got hurt and he is a bandaid, but hopefully he has a good season.  Fred Jackson is solid as well.

WR is your weakest spot but have some talent in there in Cruz and Johnson.  Colston always scares me since Brees spreads the ball around too much and Britt is a bandaid.  Crabtree could have a better year.

TE is above average.

D is good.

Good team overall.

Quite a few question marks in my opinion. QB is obviously great and I think Hernandez will have a very good year with Gronk getting more attention from opposing D's.

I'm not a huge proponent of reaching for Defense before the second to last round and I am willing to bet you reached up a few rounds to get Pitt? Defense is usually a crapshoot. It might work out for you though, and I hope it does. 

The question marks are Britt, Matthews, and Leshoure. If these guys can come up huge than you have a ton of upside. I liked Leshoure because I figure he will get all the goal line carries for the Lions(they threw a lot inside the 20 last year) but that is only if he can stay on the field. 

Matthews concerns are all injury related. If he is healthy he will be the guy. Britt's concerns are all legal related. He should see a lot of targets from either a steady Hasselback or an improving Locker....if he isn't suspended for half the season. 

One think I would like to see you do is get C.J. Spiller as a handcuff for FJax. Just in case something should happen. 

I think Reggie Bush will have a huge season with the QB situation in Miami. 

Best of luck this season.

I too give you a B+.

Matthews is a big question mark. Also, after Freddie-Jax and Matthews you get pretty weak at RB. Reggie  Bush may be able to fill this role, but you are gonna wanna snake an injury-made starter off waivers when you get the chance. Waivers should be very important to you. You will maybe need a nice pickup to get to and win the championship.

Nice tight end and good consistent receivers.

Also, Steelers D is not what it used to be. They sucked behind last year. Don't be too loyal to them and look for alternative D's in good spots.

Honestly,  In a ten man league I think you have a pretty week team.  After Rodgers, what were your draft picks in order?  I cant figure out who you took in rounds two, three, and four if it was a 12 team league I still would say it was average at best.  I'm assuming you took Matthews, Cruz, and Jackson?  But in my opinion those are very weak 2nd 3rd and 4th round picks.

He guys thanks for all of the input. JUst to answer a few of your alls questions. KTrain, I did not reach for Steelers D at all and they were available with my last pick, so I scooped them up. I also know that Matthews has  aton of injury problems, but I thought it was a pretty fair spot in which I got him. We are in a non PPR league by the way. I also wanted to add that I also think Reggie Bush will have a huge season. Had a good one last year and finished the season hot. I know I need Spiller and I was getting him with my next pick when he got nabbed off of the board. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should trade to maybe try to get Spiller. I will attach my draft order below and also if anyone is interested, I can send them our entire draft just as a little sheet to look over for your 10 team draft.

I would look to package both Packers RB's for Spiller. I wouldn't give up to much for him but I am not a huge fan of having any Packers RB's this season, but even more so because you have Rodgers. 

I am a big fan of getting a QB and one of his top receivers. If you could land Jennings or possibly Nelson I would consider trading Colston and maybe someone else for Jennings or just Colston for Nelson and maybe mix in one of your RB's for a slight upgrade at RB since Colston generally gets drafted ahead of Nelson. 

Just some ideas to think about. BOL.

You could trade Stevie Johnson for Spiller.

I don't know how you drafted Stevie Johnson so late. That is just crazy. This is the most viable trade though. In a 10 man league, Spiller is not all that valuable. Maybe try to trade something worse before trying Stevie.

Yeah I know, it is a miracle he fell to me. I am going to try to offer something for spiller. Honestly I dont think the person I would be trading would go colsten for nelson though. Or in that fact Jennings..


Yeah this thread looks like person

 Not a bad team. Puzzled why you would take Washington in 12th round, let alone at all. Your final 4 picks were easily better than him.
