    Done this the last few years. Post your team here (limit no more then 2 teams per poster please), include the number of teams in the league, draft spot, is it PPR or not, any other scoring quirks, and highlight the starters and I will grade your team out.

    For those wanting to comment or rip my teams here you go. FYI I made the semi finals in both these money leagues last year.

    LVFF - 12 team very competitive league, Draft Spot 8, 3rd round reversal draft format, 6/7/8 pt TD's based on distance, 1pt per 20 passing, 1pt per 10 rush/rec

    QB - RGIII, Andy Dalton
    RB - Trent Richardson, Lamar Miller, Shane Vereen, Ronnie Hillman, Marcel Reese, Stepfan Taylor
    WR - AJ Green, Andre Johnson, Eric Decker, Jordy Nelson, Ryan Broyles, Donnie Avery
    TE - Greg Olsen, Dwayne Allen
    K - Randy Bullock
    D/ST - Texans


    Chuck Norris
    - 12 team, allowed 1 keeper at a cost 2 rounds higher then drafted (so no first or second rounders from the previous season can be kept), Draft Spot 9, Standard snake draft, 6pt TDs, 1pt per 20 passing, 1pt per 10 rush/rec, PPR

    QB - Andy Dalton, Sam Bradford
    RB - Trent Richardson, David Wilson, Lamar Miller, Jacquizz Rodgers, Knile Davis
    WR - Vincent Jackson, Steve Smith, Anquan Boldin, Josh Gordon, Vincent Brown
    TE - Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas
    K- David Akers
    D/ST - 49ers

    I kept Richardson at the cost of the 2.04 pick. It's 2RB, 2WR, 1 flex (WR/RB/TE) so Miller is starting week 1 but I'll play match ups with that flex spot all year

    This one is a 16 team league with a lot of scoring quirks. I had the first pick. This is the scoring:
    Every 25 passing yards (PY25) 1 Each Pass Completed (PC) 1
    TD Pass (PTD) 6 40+ yard TD pass bonus (PTD40) 2
    50+ yard TD pass bonus (PTD50) 3 Interceptions Thrown (INT) -2
    2pt Passing Conversion (2PC) 2 300-399 yard passing game (P300) 4
    400+ yard passing game (P400) 6 Sacked (SK) -1

    Rushing
    Every 10 rushing yards (RY10) 1 Rushing Attempts (RA) 1
    TD Rush (RTD) 6 40+ yard TD rush bonus (RTD40) 2
    50+ yard TD rush bonus (RTD50) 3 2pt Rushing Conversion (2PR) 2
    100-199 yard rushing game (RY100) 4 200+ yard rushing game (RY200) 6

    Receiving
    Every 10 receiving yards (REY10) 1 Each reception (REC) 1
    TD Reception (RETD) 6 40+ yard TD rec bonus (RETD40) 2
    50+ yard TD rec bonus (RETD50) 3 2pt Receiving Conversion (2PRE) 2
    100-199 yard receiving game (REY100) 4 200+ yard receiving game (REY200) 6

    With that out of the way, here is my team.
    QB: Matthew Stafford
    RB: Adrian Peterson
    RB: Rashard Mendenhall
    RB/WR: Lance Moore
    WR: Randall Cobb
    WR: Antonio Brown
    TE: Jordan Cameron
    FLEX: Ryan Broyles
    D/ST: Broncos
    K: Justin Tucker

    Bench:
    Andre Brown
    Pierre Thomas
    Rashad Jennings
    Dexter McCluster
    Brandon Weeden
    Browns D/ST
    Percy Harvin

    Edit: Andre Brown was one of my starters, but that was before he broke his leg, if that makes any difference.

    Would help if I could see your bench as well but based off what you have listed.

    QB - A+, Brees is 1 or 1A in pretty much everyones rankings now that Sean Payton is back at the help so I can't argue this choice at all.

    RB - C+, Lynch and Sproles in a 10 team non PPR league doesn't do much for me. If you took Lynch with the 4th overall pick you overpaid, if you got him at the end of round 2 then likely it was good value. Sproles is a low RB2 in a 10 teamer, borderline RB3. If you got a solid third RB I might move you up to a B here.

    WR - B, I love D. Thomas to have a monster year but again feel in a 10 team you should have gotten better at WR2. Don't get me wrong, Wayne and Smith are bot very solid WR3, low end WR2 tpes but in a 10 teamer I'd be interested to see who you passed on.

    TE - A, Gonzo is still borderline elite.

    Defense and Kicker, both solid, B+

    Overall I would give you a B to B- depending on your bench. Brees will carry you some games on his own. The key will be if he has a few average games if the rest of your team picks up the slack and if you have decent depth to play some matchups at RB. You should be in the playoff hunt down until the end.

    16 teams, now that will make you work.

    QB - B+, Stafford has the potential to be a top 6 guy so you could end up with an A rated player here and some good value. What we need to see is if we get the almost 1 to 1 TD/INT ratio of 2012 or the high octane 2011 edition. Backups in a 16 teamer are going to be slim, Weeden is at least pretty much entrenched as the starter.

    RB - B+, ADP is the stud of all studs but the Brown injury really hurt you. I can't see Medenhall staying healthy and productive for more then 1/2 the games so that could put you in a real pickle. Thomas will have a few games he can contribute. Jennings could end up the sneaky value pick here if McFadden continues his normal MO and misses multiple games. It will take some luck but ADP is worth about 1 1/2 RB's so you may grade out about average. Unfortunetly it won't be a strength.

    WR - B, Cobb and Brown are both solid starters, although personally I'm not as high on Cobb as many are but you got two top 20 guys so you are solid there. Depth is an issue, Broyles is worth a flyer but not sure about an everyweek starter and McCluster has disappointed every year. Harvin could be a difference maker come the playoffs if he makes it back.

    TE - B+, I like Cameron a bunch to be a borderline top 5 TE this year. He's not Graham or Gronk but Olsen type numbers are possible.

    D/K - B, both solid, but why carry to D's in such a small roster league ?

    You will go as far as ADP and Stafford carry you, if you get the 2011 Stafford you could be dangerous on any given week no matter who you play. If you get last years version, I have you about .500

    Standard NFL.com 12 team league:

    Originally drafted:
    QB D. Brees [NO]
    RB A. Peterson [MIN]
    RB M. Jones-Drew [JAC]
    WR C. Shorts [JAC]
    WR J. Jones [GB]
    TE R. Gronkowski [NE]
    W/R L. Miller [MIA]

    BN D. Richardson [STL]
    BN G. Bernard [CIN]
    BN A. Boldin [SF]
    BN J. Gordon [CLE]
    BN L. Bell [PIT]
    BN K. Thompkins [NE]

    K G. Hartley [NO]
    DEF Rams

    I've already dropped Thompkins to pick up Z. Sudfeld [NE] to start at TE while Gronk is out. I've also switched out the Rams for the Bucs to take advantage of their Week 1 match-up against the Jests and may just shuffle DEFs weekly based on match-up.

    Edit: I drafted 1st overall.
