All right, I just drafted another team in a free, Yahoo, 10-team league, and it turned out pretty well, take a look:
and a slight problem at WR:
That's two too many wide receivers. I start only three, so I'd like to narrow the list to five total, so I can grab a few other backups, mainly RB. Moulds and Johnson are my two sure starters, I think, with the third depending on how they look in training camp. So which two should I drop? Should I maybe trade? If dropping, I would think Lelie and Streets would go first, being both no. 2 receivers for their team.
package coles or johnson AND Rogers for a better WR. rarely does a rookie WR have any fantasy impact. Still, some owners bank on big years from them, and will be interested in trade offers to get them.
Ya just gotta figure out who are those owners.
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.
IMO I wouldn't include C. Johnson in any package. Moulds and Johnson will have solid years, keep them both as you need 3 WR starters. Package Rogers with Coles, or heck, 2 of the other WRs for a good RB (Zeroue won't get the touches or playing time to be a consistant backup during injury/bye weeks.)
There will always be a FA WR or two w/ breakout performances turn up as the season begins which you can pick up on waiver.
Keep Moulds, Johnson AND Coles. They are your starters. See what two or three of the others can bring you at RB and TE. Can probably use Rogers for the TE. Then see if two of the remainder can bring you a RB and an underrated WR (Brian Finneran and Wayne Chrebet come to mind here). Then you have 2 QB, 4 RB, 5 WR (with 4 of the ones above), 2 good TE, 1 K, 1 D. Better to get something than have to drop one for nothing later...

I agree with iceman, Mav, hold on to Rogers. There is potential for him too lite it up! Lots of people are high on Lelie, with good reason. I would try to see what you can get in return for him and Coles, Streets, or Taylor. And comb the waiver wire and see if a sleeper back or 2 aren’t hiding there.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
