Newbie to fantasy football, could use commentary/advice/mocking

Draft was a bit odd since three guys were auto-drafting, and it's pretty casual--based out of our WoW raiding guild. It's 10 teams on ESPN, and AFAIK the scoring is close enough to standard to count. Not PPR, for what that's worth. Starts 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 DST, 1 K, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE).

My team, with presumed starts marked with an asterisk:

QB:

Tony Romo *
Matt Schaub

RB:

Marshawn Lynch *
Matt Forte *
Reggie Bush *
Shane Vereen
Le'Vonn Bell

WR:

Demaryius Thomas *
Chris Givens *
James Jones
Malcolm Floyd
Jacoby Jones

TE:

Jason Witten *
Zach Sudfeld

D/ST:

Bears *

K:

Dan Bailey *

There's a few obvious fliers in there, and I'm pretty bullish on the Cowboys offense. I can't really see anything wrong here, but is there anyone I should just drop, period, and try to find a replacement guy who might pan out well?

Very solid draft, you should be in good shape. None of your players scream "drop me", although Jacoby Jones is certainly a candidate now that he's down to one MCL. Malcom Floyd is also low-upside given the state of his QB and offensive line. Depends what else is on the waiver wire.
