    Only 15 rounds and 10 teams? There has to be a better RB on your waivers than Jason Snelling. I don't even think he got drafted in the Phins 25 round, 20 team draft. I could see maybe the handcuff if you had Turner, but I'd go scour the waivers for a guy who can start or at least get carries now.

    In a 10 team league, you're in some trouble.

    Ricky and Hightower are far from starters and Desean isn't a strong WR, imo.

    You're bench is ugly as hell aside from Farve.

    Thanks, figured as much. I wasn't able to attend the draft, so I had to write alot of my picks down, or get best available...kinda sucked

    O ya, that'll kill any team before the season even begins.

    Just be real active on the WW if you see potential.

    Yeah that is usually what I do when I end up missing a draft, hoping someone's QB goes down this weekend lol, and can get a nice return on Brett Favre. May end up being my blessing in disguise, I specifically wrote him down for last pick, since it was still up in the air if he was going to come back .

    I like your QB's, Romo should throw for about 30 TDs this year. Henne is a nice backup.

    I hate your RB's aside from Chris Johnson obviously. Drop Slaton immediately imo. You can find someone better on the WW for sure. SS has neck problems to go with the toe injury, and fumbulitis. Arian Foster should have 1000 yards rushing and 7 total TDs this season i think.

    Aside from Regie Wayne I don't like your WR that much either. Nicks and Knox have potential...but are either of them the true #1 WR on their team? Steve Smith is still the man for the NYG, and noone has really stood out for the Bears atm. I would drop A Gonzales and Brian Hartline and get something better off of the WW there too.

    TEs look great.

    When I draft I want my starters and most of my bench to be the true #1s at their position on their team.

    Ya, SS is a POS and should be dropped. Foster should be the biggest steal of this season. His TD potential is ridiculous in that offense.

    Steve Smith and Nicks should be pretty even in production, imo.

    Hartline, Britt, and Gonzo are all dropable. Although if the WW is shallow, I'd hang onto Britt for a few weeks to see if he can get it together. He's a moron (like the rest of TEN's offense) so it's not an easy task.

    Did you not have enough roster space for Ted Ginn's family?

    You could always flush Ontario Smith.

    I'm gonna actually put myself to the mercy of a court. I am very iffy on this 12 team ppr league.
    I need a lot of people to pan out.

    QB-Aaron Rodgers
    RB- Jahvid Best
    RB- Johnathan Stewart
    WR- Randy Moss
    WR- Malcom Floyd
    RB/WR- Matt Forte
    TE- Owen Daniels
    DEF- Pitt DEF

    BEN-Cadillac Williams
    BEN- Percy Harvin
    BEN-Donald Brown
    BEN- Ben Roethlisberger
    BEN- Derrick Mason
    BEN-Davone Bess
    BEN- Fred Taylor

    Lay into it. I look at myself as a playoff team, but not a league winner.

    I think your assessment is somewhat accurate. If you had one more stud WR you'd be way better off.

    Also, OD is going to be **** this week on limited snaps so I'd jump to the WW for a TE immediately.

    I might be in the same boat.

    I have Carlson but he scares the **** out of me. Considering starting Gresham or Keller over him.

    So I jumped ship on Gresham for Keller this week.

    Although I'll probably only roster Keller till Holmes comes back from suspension.

    I still think Gresham could be a steal but it's very difficult to start a rookie TE out the gate and see good production.

    Thanks.

    I was #1 in a 12 team league. So by the time it got back around 24 picks later it was Romo and Wayne (best WR still available) and by the time it came back around another 24 picks later all the #1 RBs and WRs were long gone.

    There is nothing on the waiver wire. It's bare I have no idea why. I've already dropped Slaton (because someone else dropped Jabar Gaffney for Devin A from chi .. weird). I hope I get him and nobody else does, since Slaton is damaged goods. Anthony Gonzales is already gone. I picked up Isaac Redman because well, with nobody good left available I might as well go for some flyers.

    These are the top 25 (according to projections available). It's pretty gnarly. I've got my eye on some of the rookies, maybe Schilens when he's healthy?

    Jabar Gaffney is an easy pickup. #1 WR for Broncos.

    If that league is ESPN then you really have to dig deep bc their projections are usually somewhat ****ty for FAs.

    Mike Williams from SEA is another high-upside guy if you don't get Gaffney.

    Don't trust those projections. Just search RB or WR. You might have to go a few pages into them.

    If Justin Forsett is available he would be a great pickup, imo.

    Depends who else is there.

    I like Forsett but SEA has very little going for them. **** OL, old beatup QB, and they just announced Forsett will be their PR which isn't a good sign for his value.

    I'm still rostering Williams though bc his ceiling will be ridiculously high. Def not expecting much though.

    detroit homer snatched up Mike Williams from SEA early. Lol. Same guy who dropped Gaffney for Devin A.

    It's Yahoo sports. I'll keep digging.

    Mark clayton is going to be the rams #1 this yr.. at least for a little while. I know rookie QB and Stephen jackson, but who else is there to catch passes.. Laurent robinson will steal the spotlight soon, but clayton will get his.

    I'll believe that when I see it. Clayton's been the same story since he's been in the league.

    If he couldn't have any kind of a role in BAL, then I don't see it happening quickly in STL.

    Also, I wouldn't be surprised that STL's TE becomes a big part of that offense. Ammendola will also get some action from the slot.

    Percy Harvin did absolutely nothing for me tonight. I'm really regretting not swapping him for Caddy in my flex. Note to everyone else: depth is there to be used.

    Yup, it was mostly run game for them tonight.

    I'd guess Farve isn't where he should be yet and they're gonna try to win with AP until he gets it back. If he gets it back lol Def not a good performance aside from that Shiancoe TD.

    12 teams, 15 round draft.

    QB- Joe Flacco
    WR- Miles Austin
    WR- Percy Harvin
    RB- Ray Rice
    RB- Steven Jackson

    Knox should be your starting WR2 every week.

    Other than that I'd look to upgrade TE andthat flex spot.

    Otherwise I'd say it's a contender.

    I would like to upgrade TE from Carlson.

    Free agent TEs in my league include Pettigrew and Scheffler, Fred Davis, and Anthony Fasano (I usually shy away from drafting Dolphins). I like Pettigrew, but don't know how the split will work in Detroit.

    Best other free agents are Eddie Royal and Steve Breaston.

    I agree. For like a 13th round pick, I think Carlson is a pretty decent tight end to have (Pete Carroll always seems to get good production out of TEs). He's arguably one of the best players on the Seahawks' offense and should get his targets.

    Percy Harvin worries me. I got him in the 5th round and just missed out on Crabtree later in the draft. I think I will have to sub Knox in until Harvin is healthy.

    The only place I think you are hurting at is WR. I don't really like any of your potential WR2s. Maybe trade Ronnie Brown or Matt Forte after they go off for a couple of games for a stud WR?

    Like slick said, I don't like your TE all that much for fantasy. But, there are very few play every week no matter what TEs anyway. Maybe you can just play matchups if Carlson starts stinking it up.


    Nice looking team though.
