The only thing I would have done is probably put more money into my starting lineup since they are the ones going to be doing most the heavy lifting. That's something I've learned about Auction drafts - if your depth is TOO good then you have a very hard time making waiver moves because players are too good to get rid of. As a result, I really focus on putting more into starters and having maybe 1 WR and RB on the bench that I'd be comfortable starting if I need them. That's obviously just my approach to Auction though, so if you've done them a while and your method works for you then don't listen to me! haha.
I went for the injury mitigation approach. Last year I had a great squad... on paper. Strong in the beginning of the season, but my hopes of a championship went down with Dez, Keenan Allen, Steve Smith, Tyler Eifert, and Thomas Rawls. Trying to protect against that this year, though as you've said, my bench makes it tough to drop anyone.
