    My ESPN league is almost that stacked. Which is odd because I accidently slept through it. I was fine with the results though. They moved it up an hour and I didn't know, but what eves

    Pitta hung an egg in my format. Thankful I went Rudolph instead. My opponent has Boldin who went off like a Roman candle.

    I realize I'm in a retarded amount of leagues. The first three are the most important... don't care as much about the rest - though I am still competitive and hate losing anything in life.

    League 1:
    W/R - Mikel LeShoure, Andre Brown, Michael Bush, Ben Tate, Mike Williams, Andrew Hawkins

    I'm definitely leaning towards LeShoure since he's the starter. Bradshaw will be back, Forte could be back... Tate is tempting, but still too risky to start with these better options.


    League 2:
    WR - Nate Washington or Kenny Britt
    RB - BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Michael Bush

    Leaning towards Green-Ellis and Washington. Britt is still too risky (until he gets to 100% health which may never happen).


    League 3:
    RB - Darren Sproles or BenJarvus Green-Ellis

    Leaning towards Sproles, but the Saints' play-calling has been absolutely horrible. He didn't even catch a pass against the Chiefs, and I seriously doubt it was because the Chiefs shut him down. Get this guy more involved and maybe you'll start winning and help my fantasy teams (since I have him in like 5 leagues)!


    League 4:
    WR - Pierre Garcon, Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright
    W/R - Garcon, Britt, Wright, Andre Brown, Alfred Morris, Jaquizz Rogers

    I'm in bad shape at WR in this league... Garcon is pissing me off because he would have been putting up monster games had he not been hurt. Hell, he had 16.9 points in one half of the first game before getting hurt. Assuming they say he'll play, I'm starting him at WR. Otherwise, who would you guys play? Britt or Wright?

    If Garcon does play, I think I'd plug Britt or Wright in at W/R. If he doesn't play, this slot would probably go to Morris (Shanahan, don't screw me).


    League 5:
    W/R/T - Danny Amendola, Pierre Garcon, Nate Burleson, Brent Celek

    If Garcon is healthy, I would honestly have no idea which one to play. I'd probably go with Garcon since RG3 is incredible, but I have a feeling even if Garcon plays, he'll just get hurt right away.

    I have Nicks in one of my starting WR slots. If he and Garcon can't go, then I'd really have to shake things up... I'd probably play Amendola and Burleson in that case.


    League 6:
    W/R - Reggie Bush, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Stevie Johnson, Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson

    Leaning towards Green-Ellis since Bush' health is in question. Plus he's facing the Cardinals defense anyways... a defense that I am starting in two leagues. Should rack up a ton of points.


    League 7:
    RB - Michael Bush or Doug Martin

    I haven't been too pleased with Martin - this is just the autodraft league. I like Martin, but I wouldn't blow a 4th round pick on him which is what it would take to get him. I think he will be really good eventually... That said, I'm leaning towards Bush.

    A Luck, M. Vick
    McFadden, Forte, Spiller, Martin, Andre Brown
    P Harvin, H Nicks, Antonio Brown, D Bowe, Reggie Wayne, Michael Floyd
    J. Finley, M. Bennett
    Tynes
    Seahawks

    The red flag should have been a Titans fan trading away two Titans players. He could have left off Martin and that would have still been heavily in your favor.

    For a keeper league, yes this is a pretty amazing team...

    My non-keeper team(12 man league) looks like this:
    Matt Ryan
    McCoy, MJD, Fred Jackson, Mikel Leshoure, Shonn Greene
    AJ Green, Andre Johnson, Percy Harvin, Nate Wash, Andrew Hawkins
    J Finley
    Gostkowski
    Ravens D

    Don't hate because your teams ain't as good

    JESUS! I'm usually in 4, but I cut it down to 2 this year. I have a buddy who is in 8. Unless you really dedicate a lot of time to it, anything more than 3-4 teams is really hard to keep up with and be competitive in. For me anyway.


    Let's give this a shot....
    Definitely be between LeShoure and Tate if it were me. Both have their concerns. We only have 1 game sampling to go on for LeShoure. And how much of his good game was due to our god awful run D? On the other hand, Tate plays behind Foster. But like I said, we can't stop the run. I'd probably end up going with Tate, honestly.

    Wash. Law firm.

    Sproles if PPR. Law Firm if not.

    You need 2 WRs and 1 W/R? Or just 1 WR and 1 W/R?
    I'd rank the players like this (assuming all play):
    Britt
    Morris
    Garcon
    Wright
    Brown
    Rogers

    That's tough. Probably Garcon (if he plays) because of Amendola's brutal matchup.

    I'd go Stevie. 'Specially if PPR league.

    Martin, only because he'll get more touches. That's assuming Forte is active.

    You really think so?

    It's not a PPR league, but I think I'm still going to play Sproles. The Saints are needing to use him a lot more, and I think he's more likely to have a big game. It is a tough call one way or another. This is a money league, and there's no W/R slot. Otherwise, I wouldn't have a tough decision.

    If anyone else could add opinions on Green-Ellis/Sproles, I'd like to hear them.
