    People say Brian Westbrook is so good, but has he been healthy a full season yet?

    I picked him up with the 5th overall pick, so it was pretty much a no-brainer since he was sitting there on the board.

    good team. but why 4 WRs? you might need that 3rd RB.

    In a 8 man league there should be some gems out there to be had.

    Get rid of a kicker and a defense and pick up anybody that is left that will make points.

    Strengthens your team and keeps quality players from your opponents.
    Also, watch the waiver wire.
    There is always gonna be some yutz who shitcanns a guy or two early because of a minor injury or because he isn't producing right away, that will come around later on in the year.

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    because you start 3 recievers, and my starters have byes in weeks that are close to each other.

    You could probably get someone to give you something nice for McFadden.
    I personnally don't think he gives you enough every week to warrant a roster spot.

    Additionally, tough call in case AD goes down, but CT could be some good trade bait as well to someone for another WR.

    I also would be skeptical of Hester.
    Another one of those guys who gets a lot of headlines but not sure if he will produce every week.
