Team #1 –Goopster24

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, QB

Starters: Bulger, Tomlinson, D. Williams, Fitzgerald, Coles, Hackett, Miller, Gould, MIA defense

Started with Tomlinson but then surprised with an early pick of DeAngelo Williams since James, Jacobs, etc. was still on the board. Still found Fitzgerald for a stud WR but then 22 picks later only had Coles left for WR2.

Bulger a nice pick at the 5.01 in a keeper format and mined for more RB depth to end with a total of six players despite only starting two. Ended up late on TE and got Miller and WR3 in the 8th was likely lucky just to get Hackett - an untested #2 for his own team. Overall, the best RB and a great WR, but not many other difference makers here but a slew of RBs with some questions.

16.11 WR Walker,Mike 9.02 DEF Patriots

Started: RB, RB, TE, QB, WR

Starters: Young, S Jackson, M Jones-Drew, Edwards, Cotchery, Berrian, Gates, Kaeding, NE defense

Nice start at RB with Steven Jackson and Jones-Drew and then Gates at the 3.02 may seem a little early but now has THE best TE wrapped up. Pick of Vince Young at the 4.11 as 6th QB drafted was a play for youth to be sure but likely will will take time to bear fruit (as in when the Titans get actual WRs). Young could have been Kitna or Bulger or almost anyone else.

Overall, only drafted three RBs and Ahman Green will need to stay healthy for once or there is no bye week filler or replacement back - and little left in free agency. QBs look weaker than most this year but hold some potential with Young. Gates is an advantage but WR's only has one player who is #1 for their own team. Some nice depth picks for WR with rookies Davis, Smith and Rice but that all could take time. This team would start slowly but the plan itself was not bad.

Team #3 –3WZ

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, RB

Starters: Vick, L Johnson, McGahee, R Williams, Houshmandzadeh, Stallworth, V Davis, Stover, SD defense

Standard way to start with Larry Johnson and then McGahee and still reached Roy Williams and Houshmandzadeh. K Jones in the 5th could be a real find... or a bust again.

Overall, V Davis a great pick at the 6.10 but risk with Vick at WB. This team will live and die with what Larry Johnson does as do most teams with him. Johnson is the only known star on the team but this team could develop as early as this year with players like V Davis and Dwayne Bowe. After taking LJ, just followed all the runs and ended up with a decent team but not much sizzle for this year.

Team #4 - budlitebrad

Started: RB, WR, WR, RB, TE

Starters: Rivers, Gore, C Williams, R Wayne, T Owens, D Driver, Winslow, Tynes, GB defense

Big-time start with Gore, Wayne and Owens but taking that WR2 left only Carnell Williams for RB2 which has been weak. Took Driver as WR3 with the 5.04 for the best set of starting WR in the league. Winslow at the 6.09 should serve the position very well.

Waiting until the 8th netted only Rivers at QB though he has obvious room to grow. Great at RB, TE and all starting WR, but the rest of the positions are all weaker than desired. Plenty of youth at RB depth but that may end up as being no real depth if he needs it. This is largely a young team that can grow, but will be back in the market for another RB next year if not spending time trying to trade for one if that trip of rookies do not pan out at all. A solid young team with some sparks that are hard to acquire with talent at WR and TE.

Team #5 –Da Rock

Started: RB, RB, WR, QB, WR

Starters: McNabb, Addai, Benson, Harrison, Clayton, Henderson, L.J. Smith, Gostkowski, BAL defense

This plan came together very well. After taking Addai and Benson - both young and with upside - grabbed Harrison for a solid stud WR even if he is getting older. McNabb is a scary proposition that could lead the league or just get injured again. Eli Manning a nice back-up to have just in case.

Overall, grabbed BAL for a small advantage and mixed WR's with old vets (Harrison, Muhammad, Horn) and youth (Clayton, Henderson). Sewed all the RBs in CHI for insurance. This team is risky with McNabb at the helm but could show up nicely and there's really nice youth and upside in those RBs. TE is weak but this team should compete.

Team #6 –Accountants Unite

Started: RB, RB, WR, QB, WR

Starters: Brady, Alexander, T Jones, Colston, Chambers, Branch, Shockey, J Brown, DEN defense

Here the exact same initial plan happened with the next team. Started with Alexander and then picked up T Jones before getting Colston and then Brady for a top QB. Rounded out starting WR with Chambers and Branch.

Overall, Shockey should be a small advantage at TE and while Hunt and Foster could either surprise, either could also flop for at least this year if not more. A little more risky than ideal at RB but Washington should improve should TJ get hurt. Russell as a back-up QB was very nice and Ginn as a back-up WR should be interesting as well. Overall, nice team with nice starters but lesser depth than team #5.

Team #7 –Die Nasty

Started: RB, WR, RB, WR, WR

Starters: Romo, Westbrook, E James, Holt, Evans, R Brown, McMichael, S Graham, DAL defense

This plan usually works well enough and this is the first team to take no rookies - dynasty leagues don't mean every player needs to be 21 years old. Started with Westbrook and then took reliable Holt for WR1 and still reached James with the 3.07 pick. Evans and Brown should serve well enough as WR2 and WR3.

Overall, nice deeper picks at QB with Romo and Leinart - both have upside and are young and only one needs to step up. Even has Jamal Lewis as a back-up RB. No advantages at TE, PK or DEF but nothing bad either. Decent, veteran team but not a lot of room to grow other than at QB. Looks more average than a top team and no real stars other than Holt who is a slight question this year.

Team #8 –8 Ball

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, WR

Starters: Kitna, R Brown, R Johnson, R Moss, J Walker, J Galloway, Witten, Akers, CAR defense

This team just followed runs but got away with it in many instances reaching the last of a tier for a position. Started with Brown and Rudi Johnson at RB which should be solid - maybe not great but not much risk either. R Moss and Walker could both surprise and make nice additions and Hines Ward a solid WR3 though it cost a 5.08 pick.

Still reached Kitna and while he backed him up with Hasselbeck, in this keeper format should have taken Drew Stanton to maintain a hold on the QB for the Martz offense in the future. Solid picks at TE, DEF and PK though nothing spectacular either. This team will rely on what R Moss, Walker and Kitna do - that could be very nice or could be a disappointment. The rest of the team is just solid with not a ton of oomph to it.

Team #9 –Big Rob

Started: RB, RB, QB, WR, WR

Starters: Palmer, Portis, Parker, Burress, S Moss, D Jackson, Crumpler, Rackers, PHI defense

Opted to start with RBs to get Portis and Parker and later tagging Betts help ensure the first pick. Palmer an obvious advantage at QB but the string of three straight WR produced Burress, S Moss and D Jackson - great trip a year or two ago. Robert Meacham gives some room to grow at WR.

Overall, This team ended up better than it may seen at first glance. QB is great and RB has some depth with M Bush and Leonard that could grow. Veteran at WR but has Meacham to grow. Crumpler at least solid if not good at TE and has Pope to grow. Rackers and PHI won't hurt and could help. This team looks more like one that will be good and not great this year and then 2008 could be upgraded if Meacham and M Bush end up as starters.

Team #10 –Wafflers

Started: RB, RB, QB, WR, WR

Starters: Brees, Maroney, Henry, A Johnson, S Holmes, T Glenn, T Gonzalez, Vinatieri, CHI defense

For a tough 10th pick that took few chances, this came off pretty well. Started with Maroney (and Morris as back-up) and Henry and then grabbed Brees for a tier one QB. A Johnson and S Holmes could be a big surprise since both are very talented and Holmes in particular has great upside. Gonzo at TE a big advantage.

Overall, nice team overall with some strength and upside. PK and DEF have top players and WRs are filled with veterans that need no development other than Holmes. Rhodes could be a "if nothing else" back and Dunn has never been drafted as high as his value ended up to be. Nice strength and upside in most areas and where upside is missing, a solid veteran exists. Top QB and room to grow at RB.

Team #11 –Turn and run

Started: WR, QB, RB, RB, WR

Starters: P Manning, A Peterson (MIN), Lynch, C Johnson, Cal Johnson, V Jackson, Heap, Wilkins, JAX defense

The Manning guy drafted a team that should be interesting to watch. Went with Chad Johnson for a top WR and then Manning as the top QB. The rookie Peterson an obvious risk with huge upside but has Taylor just in case. Lynch obviously risky and yet big upside and Barber a nice fall back filler at RB.

Overall, strong enough at TE with Heap and Calvin Johnson as WR2 makes sense in a keeper format. This team has tons of room to grow and more than a little risk. If - and a big if - Peterson, Lynch and Calvin Johnson meet their lofty expectations, this is going to be a strong team that really surprises and should compete well for the top spot. For an 11th pick, this is a very exciting team - and hopefully not frustrating. It is rare to get away starting with CJ and Manning and still having a nice team, but made RB a huge upside area with accepted risks that were compensated for the most part.

Team #12 – rattsass

Started: RB, WR, RB, WR, RB

Starters: Cutler, Bush, Jacobs, S Smith, A Boldin, G Jennings, Cooley, Elam, PIT defense

For the final drafter, this too is a team that could be fin to watch develop and that has a lot of upside. Reggie Bush was joined by Steve Smith and then Jacobs the new Tiki (sort of) could be a nice RB2 at the 3.12 and taking Norwood at the 5.12 should make sure the team can live at RB regardless. McAllister at the 6.01 was a ridiculous value and likely gives the team some trade material if all goes well. Droughns backs-up Jacobs in a prudent move. McAllister covers Bush. Very nice.

Overall, this team has youth at QB that could prove to be a problem since Smith and Cutler still have room to grow and as a QB, it would be tough if both are slow to improve. Jennings and Marshall should be able to produce a suitable WR3. For a final pick, this team is pretty loaded and backed-up at RB, has solid WR that includes uber-stud Smith. QB is the only area that is scary but there is room to grow there. Would have been nicer to see QB2 be a more veteran, proven QB even if he had little upside. Overall - fun team.
