Rate my team please

Just drafted yesterday. 1st Pick in 12 team league, non-PPR. All TDs are 6 pts, pretty much standard scoring after that.

QB: Matt Schaub (3rd Round)
QB: David Garrard (11)

RB: Chris Johnson (1)
RB: Matt Forte (4)
RB: Ricky Williams (7)
RB: Cadillac Williams (9)

WR: Greg Jennings (2)
WR: Steve Smith (NYG) (5)
WR: Santana Moss (6)
WR: Lee Evans (8)
WR: Mike Williams (TB) (12)

TE: Chris Cooley (10)
K: Mason Crosby (13)
D: Miami (14)

I know I reached for Schaub with the first pick in the 3rd, but wanted to get one of the top 6 QBs. Kolb would've been there next time around (4th/5th round turn), and would've picked him if I waited, but even though Kolb can have great upside, didn't want to chance it. Not happy with Lee Evans, and just noticed that Anthony Gonzalez (IND) is still available, think I should grab him?

Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks

How many starters for RB, WR, FLEX?

Looks like a solid team to me, I think you did fine. The biggest issue I see, which isn't that big, is how well Forte will really perform. But I don't see how he can fail to be an RB2 at least, unless Cutler gets killed (which may be inevitable).

I'd hold off on AGonz; there are too many questions between his injury and the timeshare with Collie. Evans could surprise you--remember the Bills looked like a MASH unit last season. Or you could look for Percy Harvins and Jabar Gaffneys on the wire, if you want to speculate.

I think you did very well. Depth is always an issue for everybody's teams, never having much to guard against very possible scenerios. Still I think you're starters are very good.

I'd skip on Gonzalez as well.

Solid draft. The Forte/Smith wraparound was well done. You've got acceptable #3's as well.

Skip AGonz, wait to see how Evans fares...he's been good before without anything resembling a real QB.
