    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.)

    so u think i should make the trade???

    pretty sure that would be the #1 and #2 wr's (arguably) in the league +colston and holt.

    still left with gore, slaton, and possibly ryan grant (im 7 on waivers)

    Any flex? If not, take the trade and go with TO, Colston, and Marshall; and Gore and Slaton by Week 8. That's a scary lineup.

    Here's one for everyone to consider. 10-man league, 1QB/2WR/2RB/1TE, with a W/R flex. Terrible draft for me...inviting the gf over before a draft doesn't bode well for your team.

    Hasselbeck/Palmer (whoever scores less, apparently =/ )
    Wayne
    Cotchery
    LT
    McGahee
    Cooley
    Slaton

    on bench: Holmes, Schaub, Mewelde Moore.

    I've got an offer of Favre and Bush for Slaton. This league is RB-heavy: not only is it PPR, we also get .5 per rush attempt. Usual stuff otherwise: 6 for a TD, 1 per 10 yards, etc.

    The trade's great on paper, but in this league you NEED three stud RBs. My main hangup: the waiver wire is full of spot-start QBs (Delhomme, Orton, JTO are some...I snagged Hasselbeck off waivers) but there are ZERO RBs available. Lower QB1s have little value here.
