Let's have a look.

This should probably be in the fantasy forum, but you're probably going to find yourself in a lot of trouble, especially on bye week.

Your starting RBs are sick.

Maybe package a deal and ship on of the two steelers WRs for someone from a different team probably a RB. You'll be glad later to have the depth.

I have Heath as my TE too but I think Cooley is going to be a stud this year.

My draft is coming up this Thursday night. I'm gonna try not to be too much a homer. Pitt. DST is gonna be one of my top defensive choices tho. Santonio I think will be worth a look, and I doubt anyone in my league is really giving him much thought. I'm expecting to pick him up as a bargain in a later round. Time will tell...

I actually drafted Holmes late in my money league.

My one buddy wasn't there and was very disappointed when he didn't have any Steelers (he may be a bigger black and gold fan than me). He was also upset to find he had drafted Houshmandzadeh.

With my receiving core already seeing Chad Johnson, Reggie Wayne, and Reggie Brown I traded Holmes and Carolina's RBs for Jacobs and Housh.

Lopsided? Maybe.

But I can't help but feel I preyed on his allegiances...

You'll tank, sorry it's the truth! You need to get better at every position except TE and WR. Your RB and QB choices all but guarantee failure. You drafting partners must have been licking their collective chops. This is what my draft looked like (10 people participated):

Starters
Tom Brady
Brian Westbrook
Laurence Maroney
Plaxico Burress
Terrell Owens
Anquan Boldin
Kellen Winslow
Chargers D/ST
Robbie Gould

Bench
Deion Branch
Vincent Jackson
Brandon Jackson
Tatum Bell
Dolphins D/ST
Brett Favre
Owen Daniels

You should look at the Ravens or Bears before selecting the Steelers D IMHO. Even the Chargers, Dolphins, and Packers are in the mix after Baltimore and Chicago. Don't forget to consider the scoring system.

P.S. Being a homer in fantasy football = you usually won't win much. The Colts might be the only exception. Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Addai, and Vinatieri are all top notch fantasy players, just stay away from the D and TE.

Default Re: My Fantasy League players

this is my team:

QB Peyton Manning
WR Larry Fitzgerald
WR Santana Moss
WR Devery Henderson
RB Joseph Addai
RB Reggie Bush
TE Todd Heap
BN Darrell Jackson
BN Donald Driver
BN Edgerrin James
BN Jerious Norwood
BN Steve McNair
BN DeAngelo Williams
K Robbie Gould
DEF Pittsburgh

the league is 1/2 point per reception, 1 pt. per 20 rushing yards, and i think 1 point for every 40 pass yds. also 6 pts. per touchdown, 4 pts. per pass TD.

How do you guys think I'll do.

Well done Sir!

3 quality RB's, with two promising backs in Norwood and Williams . Start Driver over Henderson and you'll have 3 quality WR's . Jackson and Henderson (More so Jackson) will be a great bye week fill. Awesome QB, enough said. Good TE and K. I'd look for a spare D, as the Steelers allow the points and yards to fly at times, mostly through the air.
