    WR: Coles/Stallworth
    RB: Tomlinson
    RB: Frank Gore

    I'd say if I move Willie Parker for a WR i'd be all set!

    My re-draft every year team, called "Belichick's Three Rings" is looking bad even before the draft because I made a bad draft choice trade - gonna have to bail myself out with a strong draft.

    My keeper team is OK :

    QB - Rivers & Campbell
    RB - Maroney & Cadillac
    WR - S. Moss, Stallworth, J. Porter
    K - Gostkowski

    (20 teams)

    The rest of my team will be filled out later this month at the draft.

    I would like to add that my team is a keeper with 8 teams and I am thinking about moving Tomlinson in a deal for Maroney and Marques Colston among others. But I am going to make an offer to another club that might net me Steven Jackson and Torry Holt

    If you're stuck with Green, I'd try to pick up his handcuff Jackson. Jackson might even start is what I hear. Your starting receivers are incredible though.

    Unless you are getting Steven Jackson and Torry Holt. :)

    My team:
    QB Carson Palmer
    (Cin - QB) QBBN Bal Mon
    QB Jay Cutler
    (Den - QB) QBBN @Buf Sun
    WR Andre Johnson
    (Hou - WR) WRW/RBN KC Sun
    WR Calvin Johnson
    (Det - WR) WRW/RBN @Oak Sun
    RB Brian Westbrook
    (Phi - RB) RBW/RBN @GB Sun
    RB Travis Henry
    (Den - RB) RBW/RBN @Buf Sun
    TE Alge Crumpler
    (Atl - TE) TEBN @Min Sun
    W/R Carnell Williams
    (TB - RB) RBW/RBN @Sea Sun
    BN Joey Galloway
    (TB - WR) WRW/RBN @Sea Sun
    BN Santana Moss
    (Was - WR) WRW/RBN Mia Sun
    BN Warrick Dunn
    (Atl - RB) RBW/RBN @Min Sun
    BN Jeff Garcia
    (TB - QB) QBBN @Sea Sun
    BN Bernard Berrian
    (Chi - WR) WRW/RBN @SD Sun
    K Jason Elam
    (Den - K) KBN @Buf Sun
    D Denver defense

    My only worry is whether or not Calvin Johnson will have an explosive rookie year.
    If not I think Galloway can hold the fort.
    I am also banking on Cutler having a comeout year.
    My league runs 2 QBs.
    If Cadillac Williams has a bounceback year I could have a dominant 3 RB set.

    I guess I can't edit this long after the original post, so here's what I have after my draft yesterday (one keeper, drafting from 11th spot (out of 12), starters in bold):

    QB: J.Cutler, B.Favre
    RB: B.Westbrook (keeper), M.Jones-Drew, D.Foster, L.Jordan
    WR: S.Smith, M.Colston, D.Driver, DJ.Hackett
    TE: T.Heap, B.Scaife, De.Clark
    K: S.Gostkowski
    IDP: S.Merriman, W.Witherspoon, D.Ware, R.Harrison

    There was an insane early run on QBs (5 were keepers and a 6th was picked in round 1!), which allowed me to get a leg up with MJD as my first pick and bone up on WRs IMO, but left me with Cutler as a 9th round pickup. We changed our scoring this year to be close to standard scoring while in past years QBs were huge, so I think this is why QBs were overvalued by my leaguemates. I'm hoping they'll regret their decision to weigh QBs so highly as if we were playing by last year's rules.

    i'm the commish of our money league: eight ppl, but a ton of starting positions
    starters:2 qb, 3 rb, 3 wr, 1 te, 1 wr/rb, 1 wr/te, 1 def, 1 k, 1 dl, 1 db, 1 d

    two years ago i acquired: tomlinson, larry johnson, shaun alexander (the top three overall scorers)
    that went along with carolina (number two def), gates (number one te), anquan boldin, torry holt, housh, djack, ocho cinco, carson palmer (number two qb or one cant remember), steve mcnair, ronnie brown, david garrard (had leftwich and bulger-who was number two when he went down with inj that yr), jamal lewis, jamie martin, samie parker, koren robinson, jeremy stevens, new englands def, pitts def, jay feely, champ bailey, zach thomas, jonathan vilma

    needless to say i won it all
    and by a very large margin

    last year i lost in the semis but had the best team by far:
    qb: carson palmer
    qb: vince young
    qb: david garrard
    qb: matt hasselbeck
    qb: matt leinart
    wr: housh
    wr: ocho cinco
    wr: andre johnson
    wr: steve smith (yeah i know four amazing wrs but andre and smith did **** for me down the stretch)
    wr: ronald curry
    wr: jurivicius
    rb: frank gore
    rb: steven jackson
    rb: ladell betts (had portis)
    rb: chester taylor
    rb: ron dayne
    rb: sammy morris!
    rb: cedric houston
    te: colston (had gates, but traded him for colston who was te eligible last yr)
    k: rackers
    def: da bears
    def: kc (matchup reason in the consolation game after chicago totally screwed me in the semis)
    dl: london fletcher-baker
    dl: demeco ryans
    db: asante

    nobody got 300 points all yr
    230 usuallly wins week to week
    i got about 160 in the semis
    about 310 in the consolation game
    needless to say i was angry

    so, very top heavy, not great depth
    never how my teams start
    i always have the most trrades, cuz i always have the best depth
    i trade my depth for top players when certain managers are in dire need of a position where i'm deep in

    so, here's my team this yr:

    qb: carson palmer (again lol, and didnt even plan on it, was planning on taking westbrook but he went two picks earlier)
    qb: donovan mcnabb
    qb: jason campbell
    qb: byron leftwich (again, although you didnt see it since he's always hurt and i always pick up garrard)
    qb: damon huard
    wr: marques colston (very high on him this year, look at his stats pre ankle injury)
    wr: braylon edwards
    wr: reggie brown
    wr: calvin johnson
    wr: dj hackett
    wr: devery henderson
    wr: james jones (has been nasty this preseason, dropped wes welker for him)
    rb: frank gore again!!! so pumped, had to trade up for him
    rb: maurice jones-drew (ppr league, with one point per reception)
    rb: marshawn lynch
    rb: clinton portis
    rb: deangelo williams
    rb: tatum bell
    rb: brandon jackson
    rb: chris brown (yes eight running backs-part of my strategy this yr, released brandon jones for him)
    te: kellen winslow
    k: none yet
    def: philly
    def: jax
    db: kerry rhodes
    dl: patrick willis
    d: none yet

    so, i've been trying to get a trade done so i can fill those empty spots, to no avail
    ppl are starting to get scared of trading with me after (well, here are some examples):

    i traded cadillac and dom davis for larry johnson in his breakout yr
    i traded bulger and rudi johnson in a deal for steven jackson last yr
    i traded lee evans, julius jones, big ben for shaun alexander in his record breaking yr (three team)
    and the list goes on and on

    i feel pretty good about my team this yr, except some injuries and poor performance this preseason have made me a lil nervous:
    hackett has not done very well
    colston and henderson have missed a couple games
    lynch hasnt played very well
    calvin has aready hit the rookie wall
    campbell is hurt
    leftwich hasnt played well

    still i feel pretty good
    i went with unproven wrs this year, after i was burned by big names last yr, we'll see how that pans out
    all along i planned on taking rbs in the first three rounds and mcnabb and young early
    i was flustered when westbrook was gone and i really really thought he would be there
    all along i told myself i would take bush if westbrook was in fact gone, but for some reason i couldnt pull the trigger and went with palmer
    im still not sure how i feel about it
    having palmer and mcnabb in a league where the top qbs are really separated is huge
    gore and mjd in a ppr league is huge
    im high on winslow
    and very high on reg brown and braylon (third yr wideouts!!!)
    already ive attempted trying to trade for: vince young, reggie bush, brian westbrook, larry johnson, brandon jacobs, cedric benson, vernon davis, greg jennings, but none were closer than laurence maroney and steve smith
    i was extremely close to getting one of those guys (who are both owned by my dad)
    the maroney offer was:
    portis, huard or campbell, and dev henderson
    the s smith offer was:
    calvin johnson, huard, chris brown

    both would give me the best player in the respective deal, and allow me to pick up a kicker and dl
    of course its a mott point since it was ultimately turned down
    although he seemed pretty close to accepting the maroney deal
    and very close on the smith one

    chris, ive actually always been a cutler fan, as he has my first name and my mom's maiden name, jus kinda weird cuz my family always called me a "cutler" cuz i have their temper etc
    anyway, those wrs are nasty
    and if you are in a ppr league you will own other teams rbs

    i REALLY like the scaife pick
    vince seems to love him, they played together in school right??
    he's a fa in my league and im so tempted to pick him up
    but i cant considering i have two starting positions empty right now
    are you tempted to drop hackett, or do you think the birth of his child has somethin to do with his play
    or, maybe its jus cuz hasselbeck doesnt know how to look at diff receivers

    I went WR-WR-WR in rounds 2-4 to get those guys. Picking 11th, I had a long wait between rounds 2 and 3, but once my pick came in round 3, I was able to snag Colston and Driver within 3 picks of each other. I was amazed Heap lasted until round 6 and L.Jordan was there in the 10th(!).

    Our league is 0.5pts/reception, which puts Westbrook as the #5 RB and MJD as the #12 RB in the projections I use. I'm hoping those projections are right.

    I like Scaife, too. I think they played at Texas together, but maybe that was in High School in Texas. I dunno. He has looked good this preseason.

    As for Hackett, he was a 12th round pickup to round out my WRs. I'll use him as trade filler.

    I looked at your roster/rules and my head is still spinning.

    Still scouring the waiver wire for improvements to my back-ups. Waiting until after Week 1 to see how Thomas Jones performs behind the Chiefs' O-Line before I start him over Foster. Not thrilled with having the Jets as my defense but, with Revis back, I think they'll be a safe bet as far as TD's allowed and INT's go.

    16 team league, normal scoring rules.

    QB: Tom Brady
    RB: LeSean McCoy
    RB: Clinton Portis
    WR: Randy Moss
    WR: Malcolm Floyd
    WR: Laurent Robinson
    TE: Antonio Gates
    KI: David Akers
    DE: Baltimore Ravens

    Jake Delhomme, Ben Roethlisberger, LaDanian Tomlinson (trying to trade out this prick), Rob Gronkowski, Deion Branch

    - I had Ben Tate before he broke his ankle. That stuffed me around a fair bit.
    - Dropped Brandon Jackson the other week to make room for a receiver that I dropped anyway. Epic stuff up that looks with Ryan Grant going on IR.
    - Keeping RBurger and Delhomme on the roster as Brady and RBurger both have the bye week in week 5 and Delhomme plays a squib team.
