Thanks in advance for looking/posting !!

My game plan was to get RBs this season as last year it was my weakest area. Gore, M Turner, C.Johnson (last year)

This year not much better or worse lemme know

A.Bradshaw, M. Turner(again) C.J. Spiller ( I was 9th of 10 btw)

I did get

Cam Newton /Rivers

Welker

Gronk

D. Thomas

Santana Moss

Pettigrew

R.Gould

Bears D

Just curious this is my 2nd season

Not a very good team at all.  You guys only draft 12 players??

You only have 2 WR on your team... you need to trade/drop Rivers and Pettigrew and grab some more WRs.  Welker is good but Santana is by no means a #2 or #3 WR in fantasy in a 10 team league and those are the only two you have.

Once you drafted Cam, there is no need to grab Rivers especially if you only have 12 roster spots.  Same thing can be said about Gronk and Pettigrew. 

If your plan was to get better RBs this season, why did you take Cam/Gronk with your first two picks??  Personally, I'd rather have your RBs from last season than the ones your drafted this season.  CJ Spiller is terrible, Daniel Thomas is sitting behind Reggie (if somehow Reggie goes down he could be good), Bradshaw is fragile (good when he's healthy), and Turner is supposed to lose carries this year but could still have decent numbers but not a #1 anymore in fantasy most likely. 

Rivers and Pettigrew are actually decent QB/TE so you could even try to trade Cam or Gronk or both but probably won't get the value that you want.  

In a 10 team league, this team is pretty bad.  But if you only have 12 roster spots there should be some guys available on free agency.  I do wish you luck and if you need any help shoot us more questions.

Yeah Deymarious, and I  still have M. Turner

16 players trying to remember my last 3 scrubs it was a late one last night

Most of our players in my league are repeats and I'm the only gambler meaning I'm much more involved in the day to day #'s stats etc etc not too many athlete, sports guys, more fans that don't realize the potential of homework.

 I'm still pretty confident as  my team was auto picked last year and I came in 3rd to my boy and his "girlfriends" team ( his 2nd) so tech' i was 2nd. They'll be alot of adjustments and transactions.

 Anyway I'll be chiming in and out of these forums.

GL this season Y'all!

JW1LS got this right

If you were focused on RB, why did you not grab one in the 1st 2 rounds? 

This yrs rb you have are a downgrade to last yrs...

I am not a fan of Cam, I think people are reaching for him, I think he will be solid but not worthy a 1st round pick, but that is just my opinion.

Not a very good draft at all for you...Sorry!! You shouldve grab McCoy at #9 & came back & took McFadden with your next pick coming back down! Those 2 RBs are going to have Huge years nobody taking away goal line TDs! Good luck this year your going to need it Sorry to say...Peace

I would have taken macfadden...

I picked cam in the 2nd round of a 10 team picking 5th...one thing to consider is that you have alot of waiver wire options and can actually use it as a your bench... you should try to trade rivers if possible...

So just to update, (like anyone gives 2 shits)

2-0

Ranked 2nd (of 10)

1st in pts allowed 134 (inevitably uncontrollable)

Playing vs #1 with this line up :

Cam // M.Turner// Julio Jones// Spiller // Gronk// LaFell// (Welker or Damarius Thomas ? ) TB Def// Atl Kckr ?)

So projected I'm 28 pts up vs our # 1 @ 158 !!

 Welker or D.Thomas? Thoughts...............

GL!

Welker getting 26 snap average and most of those are running plays. I would start Thomas. I think Cam and that option read will give the Giants fits tonight. Especially with their beaten up secondary and I think the Giants will be behind all game judging by the spread. Carolina favored by 3 so I think the momentum will be in their favor all game and with the replacement refs siding with home team stats I think Cam will produce last year type numbers tonight. Just IMO.

Doubt M. Turner is playing being that he was just arrested for DUI. Hasn't been producing much anyway.
