That looks good compared to my team. Tom Brady nearly outscored my entire squad.

With the abundance of decent QBs available on your waiver wire, you can't worry about losing Peyton Manning. Go grab Flacco or Cutler. Tolbert and F. Davis or Hernandez would be good additions for your team as well.

oh sweet jesus, Flacco and Cutler are out there?! Drop Peyton for Flacco, while younger and less proven he's a more accurate passer than Cutler so he won't burn you with multiple interceptions per game (unlike Cutler).

I'd also consider dropping Dwayne Bowe. He looks good on paper but KC sucks more than a dyson vacuum. sure he'll have a few good games throughout the year but you want consistency from your players not single breakout performances.

and one last thing, see if you can trade Lee Evans for someone. No point in carrying the top 2 receivers from the same team.

Snatch up Cam Newton. The kid played like he'd been in the league for YEARS. Posted a solid performance against a steady defense. I'm in the same boat, but Cam had already been picked. I had to settle for Kyle Orton

I would love to cut Bowe, but Yahoo won't let me.

I hear that.. I had Roethlisberger, Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe... I had no idea the Chiefs would be such a disaster this year, and now I'm stuck with two of my higher drafter players who will probably under perform all year... *sigh*

DO NOT drop Ben. He had a bad week and will more than make up for it next week. If by some phenomenal chance he doesn't pick it up next week then drop him.

You can't cut Bowe, he'll still be good. Drop Manning because he's on the decline anyway, if the Colts are bad by the middle of the season they won't rush him back because they'd rather have the high draft pick and because you need help now.

Also, go rate your team here for some automated advice on who else you could pick up

Ditto on the grab Flacco advice. Also, Tolbert is available in your league? I LOOOOOOOVE PONIES. Grab that dude and package a RB with Bowe and get a better wide reciever in a trade.

Don't feel bad about not doing well. I pretty much picked at random for my team since I don't know much about football and I too picked P. Manning. I only got 53 points so I got pretty much destroyed but it's ok, I figure someone has to come in last so everyone else feels better lol.

And this is why I don't play fantasy football. This and the fact that I'm going to have a tough enough year anyway what with being a Vikings fan and all.

For Vikings fans, any win is purely fantasy.

I'm a Vikings fan too. McNabb was just horrible. Truly, truly horrible.

To the author, I'd say, drop Peyton and pick up Cam Newton. There is absolutely no guarantee that Peyton will be back at all this season.

We Denver fans think you are making a mistake choosing Orton. There is a 14-year-old girl from Dublin, Ireland, who has never even SEEN a football who could likely throw a better pass. Do yourself a favor: pick someone else.

The Psycho Kitties are 1-0 despite having our #1 pick (Arian Foster) on IR. It's a PPR league and you have to field 2 qb's. I went for stud running backs and with my first 2 picks while everyone else was loading up on QB's so I ended up with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Freeman as my qb's. Luckily, Ryan F. decided to channel his inner Tom Brady this week and threw for 4 touchdowns. Now I've got a bunch of dinged up running backs and wide receivers. Hoping to get some healthier replacements off waivers.

Speaking as a Giants fan. It could have been worse. You could have Eli the amazing collapsing quarterback. At least the Manning you have has an excuse, he is hurt and didn't play.

You would be a fool to drop Bowe. One bad game doesn't make or break a season. He had 15 TDs last year and the bulk game in the second half of the season. Ride him out. Also, don't pick up Cam. He played against the Cardinals. Their defense is terrible. He needs more time to prove himself.

Ok. Did you notice that the only team in the NFC North that didn't win was the Vikings?


Go Pack!!!

don't cut him, see if you can entice someone into a trade for him.

this is 100% correct. Don't grab Cam, as was mentioned he had one monster performance over a bad D, grab Flacco he is consistent and a very accurate passer. With Rice in the backfield and legit receiving threats he will do well. I think Cutler would even be better than Cam tbh. If you don't want Bowe then trade him and get something for him but no way would I ever drop him. I think he was overated going into the season but still a high end WR 2 at worst. Grab Tolbert as your first priority though (why was he not drafted????)

Good Call. I am in a similar situation. I picked up Fitzpatrick, Tolbert, and Hernandez last night.

Also, Flacco is showing good signs this year, might be a good pickup.
