My bench isn't great I know. It is a 12 team league and for some reason we only had 30 seconds to pick. So, not a lot of time to think.

Trade Fitz for a good QB.You need a QB bad.

You'd be better off with Pryor or Hoyer than the QB's you have.Should be free agents. 

Play Bell over Lacy long term

Hankerson can be dropped and replaced with FA

 

Hope for the best

It's actually not a bad starting squad and you have nice trade bait in Bell, Blackmon and Heath Miller once they get going. I'd look for a better starting QB if I were you. Bradford and Schaub seem to be doing more harm than good.

You can get by with the rest of the guys, especially if Lacy and Lamar Miller begin living up to expectations.

FYI, next year, you should spend the time between picks to decide a few of the candidates you would consider drafting. That way you aren't scrambling at the last second.

Thanks RandyC726. The main problem I had was not knowing who to draft. Like which position, etc.

Who should I trade Fitzgerald for?

Maybe Rivers?

Bradford is averaging 17.5 points. Rivers is at 20.

No,look for the guy who has two great QB's on his roster and can only play one of them.You can package some of your players to make a blockbuster trade with someone if you want.

QB's for Fitz

Stafford

Brees

Rodgers

and maybe

Vick or Brady

You want players on teams that score a lot.See what these owners want before you make an offer.

DEN NE DET NO PHI GB

Quite frankly, its not that terrible. Going forward, Eddie Lacy and LeVeon Bell will be your RBs. You are looking good at WR, especially holding a potential golden ticket in Justin Blackmon. Your trio is probably among the best. Given that, your greatest trade asset is Julio Jones. Now Im a big fan of his, but I would try to sell him. Why? Because he's a name brand and is outplaying his expected value. A perfect formula for selling high. Im not saying trade him for the fcuk of it, but if you can get back a stud RB or a good QB and like a Torrey Smith in the process, thats where it may be worth it.
Unless everyone outperforms on your team, it will be a losing experience, but in that process the experience is something that will benefit you in your future fantasy quests for glory. Good luck sir. I am on your side to see LeVeon Bell perform at Alfred Morris like rookie year levels for the rest of the season.

pretty good team.  its easy to pick up a QB like dont laugh, eli, tony romo, pryor/smith. it just depends on how deep your league is (8,10,14 tms?).  the main thing is that your WRs are solid as well as TE.  even your D is solid.  you can trade up but ive tried to trade in my league but no one ever bites.  ive got TE gonzo, antonio brown, eddie lacy, brady, nicks, jeffery, and gordon.  i was even trying to get rid of trich but i know hes not as valuable as he was on draft day.

you can always pick up a solid matchup QB on waivers.  trade for a decent RB if you can.  even if you just have to pick up a different RB each week on the waiver wire. check out atl RBs or saints RBs (just a crap shot) but stay away from stl and pats RBs. GL

True thanks everyone. It is a 12 team league and we're limited to three acquisitions for every two weeks, to make things more interesting.

I traded Schaub and Heath Miller last week for Cutler. Picked up Harry Douglas this week because of the Julio Jones injury.
