Alright you asked for it....Don't like your team at all honestly.
I would never pick Jennings in the first with the way Rodgers spreads it around. Is this a keeper league? I just don't see how you pick Jennings at 10 over the possible RBs available, or even Jimmy Graham if it isn't. WR is also incredibly deep this year, while RB is embarrassingly shallow. Curious who you passed on to pick Jennings.
Since the top 3 qbs went off the board quick, I assume a good back fell to you? Your backs are terrible, especially for ppr. I feel like you're going to be scrambling all year looking for production from that position. All your RBs are in a time share and don't help out much in the passing game aside from Hillis but I think he takes a step back in that department due to Jamaal. Turner is slowly being squeezed out of the equation in a pass heavy offense and ATL has said they will lower his carries. And Redman just isn't any good.
Also not a big fan of picking a kicker or defense that early when you can fill up on your other positions.
I do like the Ben pick/waiting on a qb in general. I like him a lot this year and qb is very deep so if you can't get one of the top 5 in the 3rd-4th range then I think it's much better to just wait and get a Romo, Ryan, Ben, Rivers, Eli, Cutler. I'm waiting on qb regardless this year but i do see the reasoning of picking the top 3 early.
I just don't see any way that your team is competitive unless you just kill it on the waiver wire. Just my opinion.
