Evaluating teams in a league of ten means looking for playmakers at as many positions as possible and even more so for the highest scoring ones which would be running backs and quarterbacks in this scoring format. Everyone should (and did) have a solid team and depth is less important the smaller a league is - there are more "average" players left on the waiver wire so taking higher upside players as back-ups makes more sense with free agents to fall back on.

Team #1

Started: RB, WR,RB,WR,TE

Starters: Romo, Tomlinson, T Jones, Gates, S Smith, H Ward, C Chambers, J Brown, JAX

It is already easy to hate the Tomlinson guy and the beauty of the first pick and early double up in the 2/3 makes it even harder to like the guy. After starting with Tomlinson, snapped up Steve Smith and Thomas Jones for a solid start. Hines Ward is a safe pick for the 4th and then Gates falling to the 5.01 was a gift even with a ten team league.

The drafter was able to add Adrian Peterson for some big upside RB depth and then finished out with solid enough picks including the back-up Turner for LT. Waiting on QB means not getting any advantage there, especially in a ten team league. Great start and a gift in Gates makes this team a contender but if either LT Steve Smith gets injured, this team turns much more average with a slight liability at QB.

Plan Grade: B+ (cannot count on Gates falling that far even in a ten man league)

Team #2

Started: RB, WR, WR, QB, RB,

Starters: Bulger, S Jackson, M Lynch, Crumpler, C Johnson, M Harrison, J Galloway, Graham, CHI

Plan Grade: Like team one, got the obligatory super RB with Jackson and then used his back-end swing to snatch up both Chad Johnson and Harrison. In a team team league that works better than in a 12 man league. That allowed him to still reach a decent QB with Bulger and fill in RB2 with either Marshawn Lynch or Ahman Green.

Taking CHI gives that small advantage at DEF but TE was left forgotten with a double up in the 11/12 to only net Crumpler and Clark. This team should compete with a good QB, great RB and WR1 and WR2 and enough otherwise to carry the load. Betts is another nice pickup later on. While not all the names are what I would have chosen, this RB-WR-WR ploy could work out very well in a ten man league.

Plan Grade: A-

Team #3

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, QB

Starters: McNabb, L Johnson, R Brown, Cooley, Owens, Boldin, B Edwards, Vinatieri, CAR

Plan Grade: Started with Larry Johnson on a holdout as a calculated risk and then went for Ronnie Brown to ensure the RBs would be okay even without LJ. Owens at the 3.03 was a nice value and Boldin as WR2 is a very solid WR2 in this league. McNabb at the 5.03 will be golden until he gets hurt and late pick of Hasselbeck a nice QB2.

Overall, this built a solid team with some star power in McNabb, LJ and Owens. Solid depth in WR and RB will help keep team afloat. This team will compete once LJ is wearing a helmet again and at worst it should be no less than an average team in the ten team format. This was a more standard, safe way to draft that started out with Larry Johnson as the key.

Team #4

Started: RB, QB, WR, RB, WR

Starters: Palmer, Addai, Benson, V Davis, Holt, Driver, D Jackson, Gould, BAL

By-passed Gore and Alexander for the riskier pick of Addai - nice play for upside though. Taking Palmer is a big advantage at QB and then Holt at the 3.04 gets a top player for WR1 (could have been Larry Fitzgerald). In this ten team format, that still left Cedric Benson for an upside RB2 - very nice.

Cadillac made for a great RB3 and then upside once again with the choice of Vernon Davis for TE. BAL defense yet again an advantage. This team should definitely compete and the play for upside really should make this team fun to follow. Top QB in Palmer and then really nice upside in RB and TE. The WRs is more solid than spectacular, but overall this plan really worked well in this format.

Team #5

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, QB

Starters: Rivers, Gore, Portis, Winslow, Fitzgerald, Colston, Glenn, Elam, MIA

The middle pick in the draft went a very safe route. Started with Gore who fell to most people and then went with Portis at the 2.06. Still was able to reach Fitzgerald for WR1 and once again hit WR to come away with Colston. Finally went for QB and took Rivers over Kitna, Young and Romo.

Ended up with better than average at TE with Winslow and NE for DEF and mixed in a blend of upside with older solid veterans at WR. Getting Betts would have made this work much better but Barber for RB3 should ease the pain some if Portis gets hurt again. A solid team but no real stars in a ten man league. Safe picks, solid team but weakness at QB will likely hurt.

Team #6

Started: RB, QB, RB, WR, WR

Starters: P Manning, Parker, James, Watson, Houshmandzadeh, S Moss, Berrian, Kaeding, PHI

Parker a reasonable choice for RB1 and then could not resist Peyton Manning with the 2.05. That left him with James at RB2 - not bad - and then only Houshmandzadeh for WR1 - sort of weak in a league of ten teams. Oddly enough, taking Manning in the second round here seems to do the same thing as in a 12 team league - made this plan seem like positions were addressed a round too late.

Overall good RB stocks with Parker, James and Norwood. TE is very weak with Watson and it's like this team has no WR1 for a ten team league. This plan just did not end up with any advantage at any area other than QB. That counts, but only as one starter per week while the rest will struggle to be even average.

Team #7

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, RB

Starters: Young, Westbrook, Jones-Drew, Witten, R Williams, J Walker, C Johnson, Rackers, ARZ

This plan took one of the toughest spots in a ten team league and went very safe. Started with Westbrook and then Jones-Drew before heading into WR to get Roy Williams and Javon Walker. At the 5.07, opted to get RB3 with Brandon Jacobs. That is great for RB depth but before five other starting positions.

Loved the Calvin Johnson pick for WR3 but QB of Vince Young almost certain to be no advantage and could be a liability if TEN receivers do not step up. Witten at best an average TE and waited until the end to take a DEF of ARZ. Overall, team has nice depth at RB without any real stars and not much advantage at any other position either. Safe picks probably built an average team at best and in all four first picks will just hope that the players coming off a career best year can hold on to their marks when there could be reasons why it doesn't happen.

Team #8

Started: RB, RB, WR, WR, QB

Starters: Kitna, S Alexander, McGahee. Heap, R Moss, Burress, Coles, Gostkowski, SD

Another safe plan but one that made some more upside picks that could grow instead of players that need to try to hold on to a big 2006 like team #7. Started with Alexander who at the #8 was a great value and a safe pick of McGahee nothing special. But Randy Moss has upside at WR1 (with a lot of risk) and Burress fine as WR2. Kitna at the 5.08 was a gift and should really help this team.

Overall, solid enough with Heap and SD defense and liked the upside depth with DeAngelo Williams, Kevin Jones and Henderson. Good team with some room to grow and upside on many picks.

Team #9

Started: RB, RB, WR, QB, WR

Starters: Brees, Maroney, Bush, Shockey, Wayne, Evans, R Brown, Wilkins, DAL

Interesting to see this team after teams 7 and 8. Notice the difference in moving up a round to take a QB. Started safe (sort of) with Maroney and Bush and then found Wayne and Brees for QB very nice.

Went back to round out the WR with Evans and Brown and reaching Shockey means TE won't suffer at all. Overall, has advantage at QB and major upside at RB thought not without risk. Taking Sammy Morris to back-up Maroney would have been more desirable. Solid team with some room to grow in most positions, should compete but fall just short unless someone really exceeds expectations.

Team #10

Started: RB, RB, WR, QB, WR

Starters: Brady, R Johnson, Henry, Gonzalez, A Johnson, D Branch, G Jennings, Stover, PIT

Went safe route of RB-RB with R Johnson and Henry. Had to take WR for Andre Johnson which is weaker at WR1 than ideal but had to love getting Brady at the 4.01 and then Gonzalez at the 6.01. Those are two definite advantages.

Ended up with great QB and solid RB though likely not an advantage. WR are solid but not spectacular and TE is above average. Brady really makes this team look a lot better but the highest scoring positions otherwise are only average. Not much upside in depth either other than Santonio Holmes at WR. Probably just an average team with a lack of any real star power outside of a lucky find of Brady still available in the 4th round.

Plan Grade: B-
