    What do you think?

    Anyone I should dump?

    input is appreciated.
    You really do not need
    2 defenses or Kickers unless you are required to. You will just need to have a bye week replacement for your Kicker. Yo may be able to swing a deal for another RB if you can come up with a combo of a 2nd defense and another player for a semi decent #3 RB. Look for a rookie as a possibility as well. Ray Rice I know is out there still in a few leagues along with Felix Jones, and Mendenhall. All of them should do OK, probably not great numbers but could give you something as bye week replacements. Alos how does your waiver wire work is it resent every week? If not and it just goees by a particular order and then you go to the bottom. If so onlyy use your waiver use if itis absolutly neccesary. There usually is a player that gets dropped for some unknown resonn and you can piick him up if you are at the top of the list.
    But for sure I would look getting another RB.
    Westbrook is alos a player that you could maybe get a 1 for 2 deal as well.
    You may be able toi get a coupe of solid 2nd teier Rb's for one Westbrook, Your WR are strong enough that barring injury could carry your team. But If you could get like a Maroney and Parker type of ombo for one Westbrook go for it.
    Good luck!

    Re: First FF Team, any tips?

    do you think Jamal Lewis would be a good pickup?
    He's free.
    Also Ronnie Brown is free, but I'm a little iffy about him, coming off a severe knee injury, with Ricky Williams spelling him.

    Thomas Jones, Lendale White and Edgerin James are also still available.

    Ok, maybe I'm drunk....but, are you kidding me, Thomas Jones is and Edgerin James are available after, after the draft.......good grief, I wish I was in that League.
    Grab Thomas Jones like your johnson and ride him like a pony.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Avoid Edge like the plague.
    He is going to be a horrible fantasy back especially after resent events.
    I made the mistake of drafting him on his name and have come to realize he's not going to be in the endzone much this year, and will lose short yardage carries.

    No reason to ever have a backup K, DEF, and TE.
    You need spot to cover all 3.
    Make sure they all have different bye weeks.
    I assume you start 2 RB's, so that means you NEED to get another.
    I would advise getting another RB or WR as well with the extra spot.

    well I dropped Josh brown and picked up Jamal Lewis.
    Gonna see what I can get for Heath miller next.
    Still undecided on whether to keep Minnesota or Baltimore Defense.

    Also, wondering whether to start Jamal Lewis vs. dallas, or Brandon Jacobs vs. washington....

    Probably will come down to a gameday decision.

    ***edit.

    Dropped Heath Miller, picked up Kitna.
    Should be more than an adaquate backup for Carson Palmer and Garrard, may even see a few starts.
    And yes, in my league we start 2 qbs.
