Another team for rating

I drafted on Sunday in a 12 team league, snake draft, standard scoring, no return yards, half a point per reception. Unconventional roster rules require 2 QBs, 4 RBs, 4 WRs, 2 TEs, 2 Ks, 2 DEFs, no more, no less.

3. Matt Forte, RB
22. DeAngelo Williams, RB (a gift)
27. Marques Colston, WR
46. Vincent Jackson, WR
51. Donovan McNabb, QB
70. Anthony Gonzalez, WR
75. Felix Jones, RB
94. Brandon Marshall, WR
99. Darren Sproles, RB
118. Matt Hasselbeck, QB
123. San Diego, DEF
142. Randy McMichael, TE
147. Brandon Pettigrew, TE
166. Jeff Reed, K
171. Seattle, DEF
190. Phil Dawson, K

I missed out on both TE runs so that position looks weak, but everywhere else I'm pretty happy. I don't think it's worth trying to trade for an upgrade there yet, but it's something I have to keep an eye on.

I like your team, particularly if your QBs stay healthy (or at least are kind enough to alternate injury time).

I think TE could be weak, or it could be reasonable.

I don't know how Jones grades out as RB3. My league does return yards, but no PPR, and he comes out as a good value there - so if those are similar effects on his numbers you may have a steal if he's healthy. Same with Sproles. Hopefully a rejuvenated LDT doesn't take too many of his touches.

Thanks for the reply. What pushed me over the top towards Felix Jones as an RB3 is his matchups against Denver and KC in the two weeks I'd need him most. As for health, it'd be really great if Marshall shuts up and plays to give me a position of depth to trade from when needed.
