    brian- Drop Oakland D and pick up another RB that has a chance to play sometime this year. Maybe a guy like Steve Slaton could be available? Maybe Ray Rice? When it comes time for the pats bye week, just pick up a random team that is playing the worst team that week. Everyone should do this for their backup D. Is there a reason you have 2 TEs on your bench but no starting TE spot? If so, there might be another WR with some upside left. Better that than a guy who isn't going to get above 500 yards and 4tds on the year like marcedes. With deep bench players, try and get some guys who could potentially start, not just stop gaps for byes. cut76- Pretty solid team, especially at the RB position. What the hell league is that where they let one of those guys slip to the 2nd? I'm not really high on jennings as he was kind of hit or miss and relied on long tds rather than consistency. I'd perhaps consider dropping a WR or swapping Bell for a RB with some upside and who could potentially start and be good trade bait later on. I dunno, that's just how i roll, but the team is solid.

    I did what all intelligent people should do and googled it. So basically if your qb throws a touch down in real life your fantasy football team gets a touchdown if you chose that player

    You draft a team of players from a pool of all the NFL players. Then you get points based on how they perform during that week's games. You tally up the points you earn, and normally you are competing head to head against another owner's team. Most points that week wins the matchup. There are playoffs and stuff like a normal sport league

    What the hell league is that where they let one of those guys slip to the 2nd?

    I had the 11th pick, took Barber and then got Lynch on the way back up. Brady, Manning and Moss all went in the 1st, which is reasonable. I got lucky that the 12th pick took Larry Johnson and then Reggie Bush on the way back up. He's new to the league, and I don't know him, so...

    It's generally a pretty competitive league. The first year my friend's brother and I tied in the final, and he won on previous record. So pissed... if Owens hadn't dropped that pass...

    Here is mine in a PPR 16 member league. I picked third. The draft was 17 rounds.

    QB - Drew Brees
    RB - LT
    RB - Reggie Bush
    WR - TJ Houz...
    WR - Jerricho Cotchery
    RB/WR - Lavernius Coles
    TE - Vernon Davis
    K - Shayne Graham
    D - Buffalo
    DL - Jason Taylor
    LB - Mike Peterson (Gonna cut him and pick up someone else asap)
    DB - (Got to get somebody)

    Bench
    QB - Aaron Rodgers
    RB - Matt Forte
    RB - Fred Taylor
    RB - Brandon Jackson
    WR - Kevin Curtis
    WR - Bryant Johnson

    I got to drop someone and pick up a DB. Curtis is coming off of a sports hernia operation, so I guess I am leaning towards him. Super excited that LT dropped to three. I hope one of my backup backs has a great start to see if I can trade one of them and Vernon Davis for a better TE.

    I'm not touching any of these.

    It's where the great Steve-Slim War started.

    MJK- Curtis isn't playing for at least the first 4-5 weeks. Drop his ass. Your team looks damn good considering it's a 16 team league though. Getting LT 3rd is a fucking steal. Some people drink way too much kool-aid these days when it comes to fantasy. However, i'd also drop brandon jackson and pick up another receiver as you're going to want 2 and having forte and taylor give you some good RB backups already.

    Yeah, good looking out. I am going to drop Curtis, Jackson & Peterson and pick up my db (LaRon Landry), lb (Posluszny) & another receiver Courtney Taylor (he is going to be the only seahawk receiver standing anymore).

    Burleson. Only 700 yards but 11 TDs.

    Snapped him up in our league before His Slimness could beat me to ANOTHER pick.
