Just a few thoughts from my teams. My favorite teams so far are my 3rd and 9th teams.
The 3rd team was built on AP and Rodgers, but filled out nicely with a two upside WRs in Fitzy and D-Jax in his new location with RGIII. I wasn't sure how I felt about taking a QB early, but with these five in the first five, I think it's a viable strategy.
As for the 9th team, it's a peculiar pick to be at since all the premium RBs are gone, so I decided to take the best QB on the board in Peyton Manning. Understandably, he's going to regress closer to 40-42 TDs this year than 50, but honestly, with all the yards he'll put up, I'll take it. Foster in the second round felt good, and I'm happy with Julio Jones and Wes Welker in the fourth and fifth, but Montee Ball is a bit of a risk. He wasn't able to protect Peyton last year and also suffered from butterfingers, which led to plenty of time on the pine, so there's potential here for Bust City: The Second One (that's a tip of the hat to the new Sharknado movie, coming soon!). So I'll have to shore up with a few more RBs, but I think it's worth the risk.
Remember, many more rounds coming, so keep tuning in!
