I have a strong opinion about the first 100 or so players off the board, and I refuse to draft the guys I don't like. I prefer guys who are likely to repeat top notch stats and guys who have the potential to outperform expectations. I don't like guys who are aging and/or coming off years they will never duplicate.
With that said, I agree Chud had a good draft (although I dislike both running backs, who might actually be the same guy), and I'll disagree about the Pucking Funts. When he was bragging about his team in the draft, I told him, "nice team two years ago." The only guy on that team I would have drafted is Garcon. Gibbons has a couple players I like, but there is no way Nelson/Gronkowski match last year's numbers, and there is no way Austin plays a full season with degenerate hamsters. Cbats got lucky with his autodraft, because that's a pretty good team.
I'm projected to score 126 this week, which is most in the league (I replaced my shitty D moving my projection from 118 to 126). I understand projections mean basically nothing, but the people at ESPN who make them seem to like my team more than yours.

Allow me to break down your team for you:
Brady - He'll be your money maker obviously
Steven Jackson - On the tail end of his career of carrying a shitty team. St. Louis still failed to address the fact that Bradford has no decent weapons to throw to, so Jackson will be focused on as the only real threat on the team.
Green-Ellis - Not enough experience and numbers for me to say he's a legit starting RB in the league.
Greg Jennings - I originally got him and Donald Driver mixed up and choked on my beer when you drafted him. He's a solid option, but I see Nelson getting more points than Jennings this year.
Percy Harvin - He would be great if Minnisota didn't suck so bad.
Heyward-Bey - He's a bust and half. Typical Al Davis pick.
Hernandez - I think he's a better all around tight end than Gronk. But this is fantasy not, build a better team.
Bills - Bills have an alright defense. Too bad their offense is so bad, the D will be on the field most of the time.
Hartley - yeah he's a kicker
Crabtree - He's almost as big as a bust as Heyward-Bey and this is coming from a diehard 49ers fan.
The rest will probably never see your starting lineup.

Vick - If he can finish the seaon in one piece, he's a great pick.
Martin - He's a rookie. Could work out well. Could be a bust.
Gerhart - Great when A.P. isn't playing. Hopefully Mendenhall gets healthy.
All of your receivers are solid picks. I think Jones is going to have a huge year. Bryant and Jackson will both be good if they can stay out of the dog house. Graham is a great numbers TE. Cobb will make a decent sub for bye weeks.
Vikings- Marginally better than your original pick of the Packers. You could probably switch this pick with whoever happens to be playing the Vikings or Browns that week and get better results.
