I know 90% of the post on this board ore asking the same thing.....but if you dont mind.. ....

This is my fourth year to play fantasy football ( I am only 19), and I get 2 teams every season. I dont like having more than that, because everything that is going on in every game is both helping and hurting you. I like drafting my two teams, and rhooting for them all season.

I entered a 40 $ to enter, 200$ to the winner, 12 team league last season on cbs sportsline. I lost in the championship. This season, I had my draft tonight. I had the 11th pick. I went rb/rb/wr/wr ....as I always do. I didnt draft a quarterback until round 8. What do you guys think of my team??

Projected Starters -

QB- Carson Palmer
RB- Jamal Lewis
RB- Shaun Alexander
WR- Joe Horn
WR- Chad Johnson
TE- Todd Heap
K- Ryan Longwell
D- Colts

Reserves -

QB- Kurt Warner
RB- Ronnie Brown
WR- Plaxico Burress
WR- Issac Bruce
TE- Heath Miller
D- Falcons

Very solid team. Your depth at RB is weak however, you should look into trading for another RB or trading Brown and another player for a better RB. Also a little weak at Defense, isnt there a better D then the Colts that you can pick up in FA?

I had the choice of drafting more WR depth, or more RB depth....and I had the choice between T.J. Duckett , or Isaac Bruce. RB depth is more important for sure, but I couldnt pass on Bruce at that point. I am pretty happy with my situation at RB, I have two top 10 guys, and Ronnie should get 20 carries a game, so I am ok there I think.

The defense does worry me. I accidently hit the "auto pilot" button in the last few rounds of my draft, and the Colts D was picked by way of the sportsline rankings. I was going to pick Atlanta, but messed up. I looked into it after the fact, and the Colts had the 9th ranked fantasy D last season, which isant bad. They give up a lot of yards and points, but they also get a lot of turnovers and sacks. I am trying to trade Plaxico or Isaac for a top 10 D with a couple of teams that have bad WR depth. But if not, I feel decent about the Colts...and pretty good about my team as a whole.

Jamal Lewis is a huge "IF" for your team and anyone elses who drafts him. he has not been able to rehab his injury properly because he has been in jail and has gotten no special treatment as far as recreation time or being allowed to go see orthopedic specialists. unload him if you can. or monitor who number 2 on their depth chart is and be prepared to pull the trigger in a hurry. still, in a 12 team league, i would say you are looking nice overall. your QB situation scares me a bit... i like Palmer, but as a second QB. i am not willing to be the league on him.

colts defense? are u crazy

I like your team as long as Lewis is healthy and contract stuff doesnt distract Alexander. You are a bit thin at RB, but maybe Plaxico will get off to a hot start and you can trade him for some depth. Id probably start the Falcons D over the Colts also

Yea yea yea

you know what i found disgusting, in the draft i got R. Brown 10 round in a 12 round league...and that was after Ricky, Cadillac, and Cedric were long gone, i mean maybe the other two rooks but how does anyone pick someone whos been out of the league for a year and who will be out at least 5 weeks before a first round rb.

Like I said, the colts defense was 9th for fantasy defenses last year. They give up a lot of yards and points, but they get a lot of interceptions, not to mention sacks (Ever heard of a guy named freeney?)

And Im not sure why everyone is dogging my RB depth? I have 2 possible top 5 fantasy backs.....and Ronnie Brown is a solid backup. As long as the injury bug doesnt strike, I should be ok.....but can't you say that every season?

And the only rookie RB I would draft before Ronnie would be Cedric, just because I feel like he will get 20+ touches a game on that team. Drafting ricky ahead of him is not even reasonable. And on a rookie RB note, look out for J.J. Arrington. The Cardinals have a real shot at that division, and he is a major sleeper.
