Rivers is a shaky starter at QB - especially with the HC upheavel in San Diego.

Larry Johnson should be solid, but running 400 times in a seaosn is bound to hurt you sooner or later - as many fantasy 'guru's' will warn you - LJ is probably going to be expected to do the same this year under Herm and with a rook QB.

Lynch plays in division that plays the run reasonably well and im not sold on Buffalo's QB of the future.

Cadillac had a pretty big drop off last year, but the Bucs were poor on offense and had problems throwing the rock.

If he can stay fit he may be a better starter than Lynch.

Evans had a real breakout year in Buffalo and became the No.1 target for Losman - its probable he will have another good year (you should be aware that you are starting two Buffalo players on your offense - not a particularly good thing)

Coles is a nice pick up - him and Cotchery are pretty lively - if Pennington can stay fit this looks solid.

Im not sure Watson is such a great pick at TE - with all the extra weapons Brady potentially hs this year it could either open things right up for him (he was double teamed alot of last year) or he just might not see much of the ball.

Should be a decent red zone threat though.

Minnesota stuff the run but are weak against the pass - whether that changes now that Tomlin has left is anyones guess.

Santonio Holmes is a nice back-up to have - he may well outperform Coles and Evans this year - but again we dont really know where the Steelers offense is going this year (smash mouth or spread out).

Don't expect much from Dom Rhodes.

i picked up lynch because he is the guy i think will win the rookie of the year without a doubt. Adrian Peterson will end the year as a starter but wont get as many yards as Lynch thats why i took lynch over peterson but. i got rivers because he only had 9 interceptions in his first full year as a QB and i won a championship with rex grossman has my quarterback so this is a upgrade from last year i dont really expect much from rhodes he is really there for depth and lamont jordan was already gone.

I dont know about Rivers being a question livinginthepast... I think that he is a solid pick. He reminds me so much of Big Ben in a way. This young man is gonna be the real deal. Larry Johnson is a very solid pick in my opinion as well, he will have as good a year as last year and that was pretty darn good. I just believe that I would do my best to get Ladanian Tomlinson if any way possible. Coles I think will rebound this upcoming season nicely. Chad Pennington is a nice backup I think as well. He could end up having a nice year with the Jets. I just think that you could have done better on your defense and special teams though. This is fun though.. isnt it.. everyone has their own opinions and that is what the world is all about...

Rivers has the protection of a great running game in San diego - the best Rb in the NFL and the best back-up too.

Their O-line is very good at opening holes for the run.

I agree that Rivers will be the real deal - plenty on here didn't like him when he was drafted (side arm throwing, low release etc) but I liked what limited stuff I saw (youtube etc).

Its just that, in terms of fantasy football, where yards and TD's are key - I think he loses too many of both to LT and Turner - plus his WR corps is weak.

So, yeah, he's going to be a fine player - I just don't think he will b a very good FF option.

vincent jackson could very well be your sleeper wr and some valuable trade bait for maybe a better defense down the road. keep an eye on LJ's contract situation.
