Fantasy Results: My Team In A 12-Team Work League

So I'm stealing this idea from a few other guys I've seen write about it.  I had my work league fantasy football draft last night, and I want some feedback on it!

It's a 12-team, touchdown-only league, and I had the third pick overall.  First pick overall, no surprise, was Adrian Peterson.  The second pick was a shocker to everyone in the room...Tom Brady.

You read that right, Brady went 2nd in this draft.  It's the highest I've seen him go in any draft so far.  And with that, here are my picks:

1.03 Michael Turner
2.22 Steve Smith
3.27 Tony Romo
4.46 Chad Ochocinco
5.51 Kevin Smith
6.70 Brandon Marshall
7.75 Greg Olsen
8.94 Trent Edwards
9.99 Chester Taylor
10.118 Domenik Hixon
11.123 Isaac Bruce
12.142 Ray Rice
13.147 Correll Buckhalter
14.166 David Akers
15.1 New England D

Which makes my starting lineup look like this:

QB Romo
RB Turner
RB K. Smith
WR S. Smith
WR Ochocinco
WR Marshall
TE Olsen
K Akers
D New England

I have to say, this is one of the first times I've left a draft feeling pretty confident in my whole team.  I've only been playing a few years, so I'm not exactly Matthew Berry when it comes to Fantasy Football (I still have hair left).  I work full-time, so researching this year's sleepers isn't the easiest thing for me to do.

But with this squad, how can you not be happy?  Turner is a TD machine and Kevin Smith is an every-down back.  Steve Smith, The Ocho and Marshall are all number one receivers.  Romo will threaten for 30 TD's again. 

The only real "sleeper" option that I took was Olsen, who is already bonding with QB Jay Cutler, and is Chicago's only reliable receiver at this point. 

What do you think my weaknesses are?  Where should I try to upgrade?  Leave a comment!
