You have a bit of a risk with your WRs. Both are huge upside guys, but with one coming off of injury and one now playing in Canada, there could be some tough sledding.

My team, 12-team league, standard:

Cutler
Slaton
C. Johnson
Jennings
Boldin
B. Edwards
Keller
Kaeding (sp?)
Chargers

Bench:
McFadden
D. Brown
Nicks
Clayton
Sanchez (last pick. WTF)

To get those 2 backs with those 2 WR's you drafted with dumbasses. You have 4 top 20 players.

Here's the view on my starting WR's, when Colston came back from injury no WR topped his numbers to close the year, also with their RB situation and how they love to throw he'll get plenty of red zone targets.

Owens is always a monster in his first year with a new team and being on a 1 year deal he'll bust his ass even harder and he's still a monster in the red zone.

Was this a 10 team league?

It's a 12er, it's a keeper though I had Brady and Turner going in, take that into account.

Thats a nice team. I got Brady, Ownes, and Carlson too.

I just have to make it by till Lynch comes back.....

I took Jones with my 4th pick which if you're not doing keeper is 6th round...I think he has a real chance to be a dynamic playmaker.

We're in the same league too!

With a keeper league there were probably a lot of the top WRs gone already. I think Colston and Owens could compete with the top tandems in the league so I'd be concerned but not worried. Good thing you only need to start 1 RB

What I'm hoping is Brady plays like 2 years ago and it really won't matter who your #2 RB is.

I don't doubt Owens' talent, but I have a hell of a lot of doubt about Edwards'.

Overall, though, a solid team. Plus you have some pieces if you'd need to try to swing a trade.

Yup, you got a solid team. I think i have a strong team but just wondering what others think?

But Owens will always be the first look...Edwards isn't gonna try to always bomb it to Evans and when they get in the redzone Owens is the big receiver.

Owens has scored more touchdowns then some teams the past few seasons. He'll still be productive and is kinda underrated in fantasy leagues.

I think Owens is massively undervalued in leagues this year based upon where he's ranked it's a little stupid.

I think he is rated about right. Most ranking lists I have seen he is in the D. Bowe, Colston, Boldin range. I would call that a pretty reasonable ranking. I expect all three of the others to outscore him this year.

You have to take the Buffalo weather into account with him as well. I expect TO to be a top 15 fantasy WR this year, maybe top 10, but I do not expect him to return to his first year in Philly or Dallas form.

Terrell Owens might have totaled 1,052 yards on 69 catches (15.2 avg.) for 10 touchdowns in 2008, but those numbers look better than they really were. That's because Owens had just two 100-yard games (a 213-yard effort vs. the 49ers and a 103-yard effort at the Eagles in Week 17) and had five touchdowns through the first five weeks and five in the remaining 11. Excluding his well-documented 2005 season, these cumulative totals were his worst since 2000. Plus as DrRyan mentioned the weather will be a big factor late in the year. The winds in Buffalo make it hard to throw the ball late in the year and they play 4 of their last 6 at home.
