I don't believe in Forte and he was the option there. The workload is mounting and before last season had injury issues. Lacy is worthless shit, as seen last night.

I would have gone with Forte at 4 in a PPR and hoped for Julio Jones or A.J. Green in the next round, but I can see the logic in going Megatron there.

I used FFToolbox custom rankings based on my league scoring settings, so if I fail, it's FFToolbox's fault.

I'm definitely sweating it now that Ellington is a game-time-decision in the Monday Night game. I'm probably going to go with Rashad Jennings and Lamar Miller as my RBs and that will leave me with Michael Floyd as my flex and the possibility to swap in Ellington there (although I probably will just stick with Floyd and play it safe).

jay cutler is awesome.... you waited on qb.... jordan reed great.... waited on TE....

So far perfect 100%

after that its hit or miss. picking at ten you grabbed beasts with your first four picks!

and Dez is way more value than a QB..... the fall off from brees rogers to cutler is probably almost zero over the year. literally. cutler could come out as top qb this year.

I dont like bishop sankey or lamaar miller at all but thats my take listening to fantasy football radio all day long. bishop isnt polished and lamaar miller will be backing up knowshon moreno.

so for those two RB picks I drop you from a perfect 10 down to about a 9 with the starter you have and where you drafted.

now if you were drafting at 1 I would say go RB RB with first two picks. as all the top flight WRs will be gone by your second pick.

see it all really plays out this year due to WHERE you draft in a round. the shmucks dont understand. you go after VALUE not POSITION.

GREAT JOB.
I really miss my SiriusXM Fantasy channel since I let my subscription expire. Last season, it was a huge benefit and one of the reasons I was able to snag Keenan Allen off the waiver wire before he started attracting everybody's attention.

I can't help but think my team this year is going to be a letdown from the squad I had last year:

QB - Peyton, Phil Rivers
RB - Peterson, Forte, Joique Bell
WR - Welker, Keenan Allen, T.Y. Hilton
TE - Jason Witten, Jordan Reed
D - Kansas City
K - Gostkowski
and some bench guys who didn't matter.

Any other week, Watkins. But the rib injury makes me hesitant. I'd never start a Dolphin against New England. If Wheaton gets Gilbert a few times, he could explode.
