Everyone seems to be wanting to get thoughts on their team so I figured making a single thread for everyone to post their team and get other .NETers would be a good idea. I'll start it off. The league (12-man) I'm in is a little unorthodox, we use individual defensive players. Oh, its also Points per Reception.

Starters
QB Donavon McNabb PHI
RB Maurice Jones-Drew JAX
RB Brian Westbrook PHI
WR Dwayne Bowe KC
WR Braylon Edwards CLE
WR Chad Ochocinco CIN
TE John Carlson SEA
K Robbie Gould CHI
DB Richard Marshall CAR
DB Brandon Meriweather NE
DB Chris Hope TEN
DL Jason Smith SF
DL Ray Edwards MIN
LB D'Qwell Jackson CLE
LB Jon Beason CAR
TE/LB Flex Dustin Keller NYJ

Bench
RB Cedric Benson CIN
RB Leon Washington NYJ
RB Fred Jackson BUF
WR Derrick Mason BAL
WR Nate Burleson SEA
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey OAK
DB Michael Lewis SF
DL Will Smith NO (suspended 4 games, will start when he comes back)
LB Stephen Cooper SD

I know I have no backup QB but there are plenty available so i dont plan on picking one up until absolutely necessary.

I think your weakspot may be WR. I don't know about any of the DEF players , but other than that it looks good. Westbrook and MJD should be a strong combo

I don't know about that. With Gonzalez gone, Bowe is the clear #1 receiving target in KC. It's an odd-numbered year so Braylon should put up good numbers in Clevelend regardless of who's throwing to him. Ochocinco no longer has to share balls with T.J. and I'm not sold on Palmer completely trusting Chris Henry at this point. Derrick Mason will be Flacco's favorite target in Baltimore, especially on 3rd downs. Burleson will put up decent numbers as long as he stays healthy. The only real question mark is Heyward-Bey.

Er - I tend to agree that WR is your weakspot. Bowe concerns me this year - not a good fit for Cassel or the new coach. I do like Braylon, but if if he drops some balls early, they may hang him in Clev. And Chad is another question mark - he hasn't been his old level in years, and his QB has injury issues. There's potential in this crew, but it also has the potential to be a horrible horrible WR crops.

But, your RB Duo should keep you in each week.

Yeah, my team struggled last year and as my keepers I kept Jones-Drew, Ochocinco and Bowe so i was fairly stuck with them as receivers. They all are the clear #1 targets on their teams so I'm hoping they will succeed because of this. Right after my last post I actually cut Heyward-Bey and signed Chris Henry. If Esteban doesn't work out at least i have the Bengals' next best receiving option

my .NET Yahoo team:

QB: Brady, Flacco
RB: Thomas Jones, Beanie Wells, Darren Sproles (KR? PR?)
WR: Moss, B. Berrian, D. Driver, M. Muhammed
TE: Carlson, Vernon Davis
K: John Kasay, Jason Hanson
DEF: NYG, TB

My ESPN .NET team:

QB: Brady, Campbell
RB: Westbrook, Addai, Jamal Lewis, Sammy Morris (stupid Auto-draft...)
WR: Housh, B. Marshall, Santana Moss, T. Holt, Lance Moore, Josh Morgan, Sidney Rice
TE: Tony Scheffler
DEF: Karlos Dansby, Mathias Kiwanuka, Brandon Merriweather, Brandon Mebane
DEF/ST: NYG
K: Kaedingm Nick Folk


espn was all auto draft. Yahoo was autodraft first 2 rounds. ended up with Moss and Brady, would have rather gotten a high end RB in the 2nd round though

Yeah, mux, you're rather thin at RB in both leagues.

A couple questions:

Right now I think RB is one of my weaknesses. I have Lendale White and Joseph Addai starting, with Lesean Mccoy and Ahmad Bradshaw on the BN. Do you guys think I should change that rotation?

Also, on D, I have:

D - Curtis Lofton
D - Dawan Landry
DB - Leodis McKelvin
DL - BJ Raji
BN - Quintin Demps

Should I put Demps in, pull someone out?

El Doce, wow. You are hurting at RB. All of your guys are slated to split time, with Addai being the only one right now who will actually be starting. White & Addai are your best two, but I'd be looking for help. As for defense, I'm not up to speed on IDP yet so I'm going to refrain from giving an opinion.

Knight, what are your choices? What WR's are available? If available I'd look to add one of these:

Chris Henry, CIN
Nate Burleson, SEA
Isaac Bruce, SF
Derrick Mason, BAL
Domenik Hixon, NYG

If Dominik can hang onto the ball, he's going to be the Giants deep threat this season.
