ppr or no?

Trying to understand who was your first or second pick. I am guessing Murray which is decent, newton 2nd? Personally, I think you chose players you wanted early w/o letting the draft play itself out and take whomever is the best available.

RB - decent, but not deep. Turner could be headed to a down year.
WR - decent, if Britt performs. Not big on James Jones (actually prefer Cobb this year as the #3 on GB. I believe they give him a shot this year).

Rest of team is decent, you just need a few waiver wire pickups.

Standard settings?

I'd give it a B. I understand that 11th pick can be hard to play with in a 14 team league. 

Cam Newton is a risk v reward player. Can he replicate last season stats, even I don't know. In a $500 league, I'd take security over a risky player. 

Not a fan of Murray, but contrary to Turner having a down season, he is a RB I'll draft. Your RBs are good, but would have loved one more for a flex spot. 

Unfortunately not the biggest fan of your WRs. Blackmon's production is dependable on his QB, they say Amendola could break out and Kenny Britt is good if not injured...So many if's...

I could say Vernon Davis and Turner are the only two players I'd consider drafting from your pool of players but this team gets a B at the very best. 

Can't say too much more about your team as there is nothing to get excited about.

Yes its a ppr league w standard settings. I am worried about Michael turner and some dousche picked jacquizz Rodgers like in the 5th rd so I missed out on him. 
I selected demarco Murray 11th I think he's a stud. But yeah I chose cam coming back around. That seems like it was a mistake. 
I kind of like my wr's, I think britt can b really good and Blackmon well he's a rookie on a team with no qb. It was a good value pick for me though.

team looks ok, it would look better if you add some rb depth, with royster you dont know who the starter for washington is, and i wouldnt want jacobs with s.f. backfield, i would try to trade a wr with jacobs for a better rb
