    Putting a lot of faith in Houston's offense - aren't you ??

    I think Stafford will have better #s than Schaub and I think Hillis will come back to reality (IE: mediocrity).

    I also have McCoy, Mike Williams, and Steve Smith. A few different ones I picked up were Jason Whitten, Brandon Lloyd and Kenny Britt.

    Wasn't the plan. I just picked people as I went haha. I'm sure Andre will be solid at least, and Foster is supposed to be one of the best. Schaub was just the best available at the time. Hillis was my third RB choice I think. Figured he would get some goal-line touches at least.

    What is this, a 4 team league? How did you get Johnson, Foster, and McCoy? Or Gates for that matter.

    8 teams. Although it may be 4 people of the 8 who know/care what they're doing. I think it is more for fun. I just took BPA mostly.

    I say 'I think' because I got asked last second. I think a few guys wanted to do this and just got some other people to fill up the league.

    Your starting RBs alone should win you this league. Foster, McCoy, and Hillis might be one of the best trio's I've seen for FF ever.

    lol I was just about to say that I am in a 6 team league and my team is ridiculous...

    I will say that one guy basically picked the whole TB lineup I know it is your favorite team but that is not how you win in a 6 person league, maybe that would fly in a 15 person league or something...

    Just for fun-sake I will put up my team though..

    League format 1QB/2RB/3WR/1TE/1DST/1K/1Flex/1Offensive player any position

    QB's Rodgers,Rivers,Romo
    RB's AP(through trade originally had Ray Rice), Matt Forte, LeSean Mccoy, Felix Jones, Tim Hightower,
    WR's Greg Jennings, Vincent Jackson, Miles Austin, Marion Manningham, Julio Jones(I just like him), Jeremy Maclin, Micheal Floyd
    TE's Jason Witten, Owen Daniels
    DST Steelers, Raiders(had eagles but that was a part of the Ray Rice trade, I will probably drop them and add Chargers, Cowboys or Falcons D though, Steelers will play all of the time anyways so not too worried)
    K Nate Keading

    This is the first year of a Keeper league... Hopefully next year we will be able to atleast get 8 guys 12 would be better though...

    Starting line up
    QB Rodgers
    RB AP
    RB Mccoy
    Flex Forte
    WR Greg
    WR Miles
    WR Vincent
    TE Witten
    OP Rivers
    DST Steelers
    K Keading

    That isn't my roster, but I still don't know that I agree. 1 I love Freeman 2 Stafford has yet to stay healthy, and even if he does Freeman was pretty dang good last year.

    I dont see Freeman repeating that this year...he doesn't have the weapons that stafford has either...that said I think I may take Bradford over both, poised for a HUGE year

    Mike Williams, Arrelious Benn, Kellen Winslow Jr., and LeGarrette Blount. I'll take that.

    Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson, Brandon Pettegrew, Jahvid Best. Stafford has CJ obviously, but overall it is pretty even I think.

    I don't think Freeman will repeat last year exactly either, but I bet he'll be close. At the moment I don't have reason to believe Stafford will even play an entire season. I do think Bradford could light it up this year though.

    I look at it this way:
    Cj>mike Williams
    Receivers on both teams after that are both pretty iffy
    I would take petigrew over Winslow this year...
    Not sure about the running backs though I think best is a better compliment to a passer

    I have one spot left in the Pacers Digest Fantasy league. It's a Yahoo! autopick draft 12 team league. PM me if you want it, first come first serve. We will draft very shortly after the league is full.

    Ya CJ obviously wins. After that though, I think Benn will be good this year. Of course I am biased, but he was coming on late until an injury.
    I'll take Kellen definitely, and RBs I don't really know either. Still think it is pretty even, but I'll give Freeman the BOTD until I actually see Stafford produce.

    Here is how my draft went:

    3 Jamaal Charles, KC RB
    18 Hakeem Nicks, NYG WR
    23 Mike Wallace, Pit WR
    38 Peyton Manning, Ind QB
    43 Jeremy Maclin, Phi WR
    58 Mark Ingram, NO RB
    63 Jonathan Stewart, Car RB
    78 Matt Ryan, Atl QB
    83 Percy Harvin, Min WR
    98 Rob Gronkowski, NE TE
    103 James Starks, GB RB
    118 Robert Meachem, NO WR
    123 Mike Sims-Walker, StL WR
    138 Rob Bironas, Ten K
    143 Saints D/ST D/ST

    A little shallow on RB's, hopefully I can find some gems in FA. Trying to trade Matt Ryan for a RB/QB combo. What do you guys think? This is a 10 team league, all take it very serious.

    he also has Bucks defense

    And a couple other guys as well not on the BUCs, this wouldn't be too bad if he got it with his later round picks but not to start out with...

    We have 16 in our league. 16 is a little nuts. Check that, 16 is a lot nuts. I won the league last year (in large part because I picked up Vick on waivers, haha [in all fairness, I had Kevin Kolb though. Once he went down, it seemed only right to pick up Philly's next-in-line QB]), but I'm not feeling good about my chances this year.

    Here's my squad -

    Matt Cassel - QB
    H. Nicks - WR
    Stevie Johnson - WR
    J. Maclin - WR
    D. McFadden - RB
    R. Matthews - RB
    Brandon Pettigrew - TE
    Fred Jackson - RB
    Jonathan Stewart - RB
    J. Campbell - QB
    Jerome Simpson - WR
    B. Celek - TE
    J. Hanson - K
    Miama - Def.

    There are still some interesting names available on the waiver wire in our league (Jordy Nelson, C.J. Spiller, Jerome Harrison), but I think I'm going to wait it out and see how we do. Here's hoping I guess.

    My first fantasy football league in a couple years, and the draft page on Yahoo froze on me and I ended up taking 2 bench players before I filled any of my 3 starting WR spots, TE, Defense, or K. Was kind of annoyed, I did want Felix Jones, but didn't want to take Deangelo Williams at the same time. Anyway .... here's how my team shook out.

    QB -

    Phillip Rivers
    Sam Bradford

    RB -

    Adrian Peterson
    Shonn Greene
    Felix Jones
    DeAngelo Williams

    WR - This is where the freeze hurt me ... there were some good guys available at that time, and I picked first, so after those 2 back-to-back picks .... I didn't pick for a long time.

    Santonio Holmes
    Percy Harvin
    Julio Jones
    Braylon Edwards
    Robert Meachem

    TE -

    Jason Witten
    Brandon Pettigrew

    K -

    Sebastian Janikowski

    Def -

    San Diego
