Default Team Better Than I Thought?

I've been playing for years, and drafted for my brother this weekend. This is the team I ended up with. He's a big sports fan but not quite as a fantasy nut as I. Apparently I got a lot of compliments from the other people in the draft for the results, I wasn't OVERLY amazed, at least at the RB position. Hopefully it turns out my expectations are just too high. Judge for yourself:

QB - Philip Rivers (SD)
RB - DeAngelo Williams (CAR)
RB - Matt Forte (CHI)
FLEX - Malcolm Floyd (SD)
WR - Andre Johnson (HOU)
WR - Randy Moss (NE)
TE - Jason Witten (DAL)
K - David Akers (PHI)
DEF - Minnesota
IDP - Chad Greenway, LB (MIN)

Bench:

QB - Matthew Stafford (DET)
RB - Arian Foster (HOU)
RB - Justin Forsett (SEA)
RB - Pierre Thomas (NO)
WR - Mike Williams (SEA)
WR - Lee Evans (BUF)

10 teams. It's my brother's co-workers so I wouldn't know.

Man,people really don't pay attention to anything when drafting

That team above is the sole reason why I've more or less done leagues with the same core of guys going on 10 years

Moss,AJ,Pierre Thomas and DeAngelo Williams should NEVER be on one team in a 12 team league

I guess what I don't understand in terms of the other players in the league, if they're smart enough to know how well I drafted, why did they allow it to happen? (I was pretty pumped when I saw Michael Turner go #6 to leave Johnson at #7)

So you're saying Andre Johnson went #7, which means Randy Moss slipped to #18?!?! And DeAngelo Williams slipped to #31?!?!? Which means either Rivers or Pierre Thomas slipped to #55?!?!? Which means #79 was either A.Foster or Forte?!?! So I guess that means you got Witten at #90?!?!

I don't care if this was each of the other 11 owners first time playing fantasy football, there is virtually no way that could happen! I mean, I believe you because who would feel the need to come on here and lie about a fantasy football team... but part of me would like to see what the complete results of that draft looked like, because it really makes no sense. Even for a 10 team league some of that would be hard to believe. Well, I hope your brother cuts you in on any winnings, and maybe joins a more competitive league next year.

I won a league with some pretty inexperienced co-workers last year so my personal expectations were skewed most likely with my initial post. I wasn't trying to be cocky with my "better than I thought" question. Funny thing is looks like it might be the same situation with my brother this year.

I think you'll be starting Foster and Thomas before too long.

16. Philip Rivers
36. Pierre Thomas
48. Arian Foster
54. Matt Forte

So you have 7 of the top 54 picks in our draft on your team. I am with Mike, I gotta see the rest of this draft board. Nice draft for you, but what do other people's teams look like
I posted the draft a couple posts back. Most likely my brother's playing with guys who are football "fans", but far from experts.

This isn's my team. It's my brother's. Kinda wish it was my team now.

Ok, why in the hell in a 10 team [or any league] would someone take Rodgers overall #2 and than Brady overall #4??

The guy who drafted 10th/11th got the guys who should have gone 3rd/4th

Yeah most leagues chase a RB in the first round and QB in the second or third. Clearly not the case with a few of these teams.

My league gives bonuses for passing attempts, tds over certain yards and yards. QBs were some of our biggest scorers last season with this new scoring system. That's why QBs went first this year.
