    I got Colston (traded Housh for him), so I think I would go after Andre Johnson. My receivers would be pretty strong... Moss, Johnson & Colston with Cotchery and Eddie Royal on the bench. I have Lance Moore as well, and I hope he does well this coming week and I will try to dump him off. I wish I had one more back though, but I am pretty loaded as it is...

    Is it a no brainer to trade Lance Moore & Reggie Bush for Lynch?

    At this point in the season I'd say 'yes.'
    (Assuming you're on the receiving end of Marshawn though.)

    Do it and enjoy 80-100 yards/game plus a TD every couple of games. The Bills offense revolves around Lynch.

    Oh, and Moore's value hits almost zero when Colston and Shockey return.

    Guys, I gotta make this clear: do whatever you can to get Steve Slaton. Yahoo's hyping him already, so you might have missed your chance.

    This guy is talented, though, and was a standout at WVU. He could be this year's Grant in terms of production, and he's got a cupcake schedule (only three decent defenses).

    Well, we'll see if he will be down with it.

    Now, what to do this week. Moss, LT & Forte are locks, but who do I fill the other two positions with? I got Bush, Reggie Brown, Royal & Moore. I am leaning toward Bush & Moore, but Brown looked really strong last week...

    How does your league score? PPR?

    Keep away from Bush this week...Minnesota got torched by Chris Johnson last week, but Bush isn't going to get goal-line touches. He's also terrible at actually running the ball.

    I think Moore's a must-start against Minn's pass D. And I just saw Reggie Brown got 10 looks last week. McNabb's going to him, so you should too.

    Yeah, it is a PPR league. Yeah, Bush is more of a WR, so my thinking was that he was going to torch Minn's pass D.

    Which he could, but I'm assuming Brees will go to Moore as a #1. As a WR, I'd say Bush is like a low #2.

    yea snatch up lynch asap.

    +1 on slaton. sos alone is reason enough to pick this guy up. nowhere near out of the question that he can run for 100+, get plenty of looks near the goal line, and maybe even get 5 receptions. guys legit, kubiak loves him, also that O line looks like it is finally moving bodies. i probably wont, but im giving serious consideration to playing him over frank gore. in another, hes starting over mjd (durr). this rookie class of rb is so stacked

    Would not have thought to find a fantasy football thread around here.

    16 man league, drafted 16th:

    Cutler
    Peterson, Slaton, Lewis, Sproles, Hightower, Thomas
    Marshall, Holmes, Welker, Meachum, Ginn
    Scheffler
    Prater
    Chicago.

    Obviously I did some trading to get AP, and I've got too many Denver players. But I'm off to a 4-0 start at least.

    Awesome team, especially for a 16-man draft. I'd say "trade Cutler," since he's got a tough playoff schedule, but trading QBs is tough in a one QB league.

    yea so after this week, nobody has a spot locked in on my team that is set in stone. i have been too faithful to my top draft picks, when i have guys who should get the start, and i know should get the start.

    Man, I need 70 points from Brees, Bush & Moore to keep my undefeated streak alive. If LT just would have got that goal line touchdown and if the freaking Bills defense could have gotten me more than 0 points...

    one league i had gore and barber ahead of slaton. i told this forum + all my friends who i talk fantasy with about how hes my #2 guy this week, only behind peterson, then i go ahead and bench him. also upset with starting deshaun jackson over mushin in that same team.

    im not being results oriented looking back on this. i knew they shouldve played but just didnt put them in

    luckily as in "wasting" a #1 or 2 overall on him?

    I have LT in another league, and I'm desperately trying to move him. He seems slowed by the toe, and the man has carried the rock 300 times seven years in a row.

    This year is the end of the "LT = #1" era. I wish I could move him for AP or Gore.

    My answer would depend on how many WRs and RBs make up a starting line-up in your league. . .
    (Assuming 3 WRs and 2 RBs I'd say no. Wait to see how Colston performs once he gets back on the field.)
