Pro bowl is a big deal, but All Pro is where it's at. The best of the best. I won't dwell on Simmons making 2nd team, because that is a Broncos thread. But it sure tells me something about this guy!

Overall I like most of the picks. Interesting though, how McCaffrey and Henry are the Running Back and the Flex, on respective 1st and 2nd teams. Then TJ Watt is The Edge Rusher on team 1, and a Linebacker on team 2. Hey, spread the goodies around!! In the latter, I must say that TJ is living up to the Watt legacy. I thought he was good, but All Pro speaks volumes!

Can't help but notice how some Oliners are repeat choices, year after year after year. This is what we want, a few franchise Oliners who keep on playing good ball.

Godwin surprised me a little as a 2nd teamer, but his stats measure up. Might have to acquire him next fantasy season, though Evans would always be my first choice in TB.

Thoughts?
