I don't know about that trade. Green bays d stink last year and Stevie Johnson has more upside than Steve smith

I would have kept Houston's D.

Jamaal Charles is RB by committee with Hillis... so his fantasy value takes a hit... so that may not have been a bad move.

Frank Gore is getting old... so don't expect the same production out of him.

I think you're going to be starting Ben more than Cam this year. Cam is still relatively unproven and the Steelers schedule is a little softer than previous years... plus Ben's weapons are all in place and healthy. Cam was awesome last year, don't get me wrong... but I wouldn't put the weight of my team on the shoulders of a second year QB. Expect inconsistency.

Mike Wallace is a decent choice, but I think Antonio Brown is going to be getting more targets this year because Wallace will be wearing CB's like garments of clothing all year.

Fred Davis is my dude. I really think he's a better start than Celek, especially since he actually has someone throwing to him this year... that is if he can stay healthy.

Foster is a solid start... but during your bye weeks... Shonn Greene is gonna stink it up for you. I think he's an awful starting RB on a terrible offense.

I honestly think the rest of your WR's are mediocre... but they will all give you consistent numbers. Other than Wallace, you don't really have any explosive wide outs.

He was suspended the last 4 games of last year. He's good this year... so far.

A tip...

Fuck kickers. Drop kickers and pick up kickers almost on a weekly basis. Take the kicker who's offense is playing a tougher D and will stall consistently at the 20/30 yard line. Teams like the Dolphins, Jets, Browns etc.

don't you get charged a transaction fee in your league? I like that idea but that would get expensive....also both of my leagues use a snake system for pickups...so if i were to use it on kickers i never would be able to get other players I really need

not really. Hillis is the short yardage and goal line back and while he'll probably steal a few of Charles' touchdowns the latter will still be getting the majority of the carries/yards.

p.s. that trade was terrible.

$3 a transaction but who cares. The object is to the win the $1000+. If it cost me $30 big deal. The waiver wire order also only comes into play if someone else wants that kicker. If that's the case. Oh well. He can have him. i'll get another.

Charles will get the majority of the yards. Hillis will get the lions share of the red zone touches... and ultimately a lot of the TD's. This won't be the rule... but at the end of the season, this will probably be the case.

the kid wanted jamaal charles and i thought since he was injured last year i could expect better points from frank gore. he needed a better d and i have philly so i wasnt worried about taking greenbays d even though i knew they blew. and steve smith i wanted based on the fact that i had no great wr and if cam IS on and thats a big if then steve smith will have big numbers, i just built around who i had. I will take your advice and more likely be starting ben more than cam, if by week 3 he isnt doing numbers.

i was feeling the same way, thats why i traded for smith and made the sacrifice of giving up two potentially good things for the trade. frank gore doesnt suck and had a good year last year, the niners will be solid again this year and he will give good stats, and so i had to give up houston for gb... a gift to appease the football gods to see that cam and smith drive my team to football valhallah

that was a hard decision for me, i didnt know which to give up and I honestly just didnt know shit about houston so i had to go with what i knew and keep philly
