You've got 2 solid QB's so I'm guessing you pulled the trigger on them too early as the rest of your team is not very strong. Your starting RB's, Alexander & McAllister are good but you have no depth - Dayne & Pittman aren't starters - you should have grabbed at least 1 more starter. You really have only one stud WR in Holt - Calvin will be good, but first year WR's rarely produce great numbers, and the rest are nothing special. TE, K, and D are all good.

Calvin Johnson is a #3 WR at best, so it looks like you're a little weak at WR. RBs are decent but not great. As stomperrob said you probably went too early on your QBs since you have 2 strong ones. Maybe you can try to trade Young for an upgrade at WR? Not bad overall.

I dropped Ginn and Wilford and picked up James & Jacoby Jones off the WW. It's my first year, so I know I have alot of learning to do. Thanks for your help!

Stick with the Cafe and you'll learn tons. By this time next year you'll be giving advice. ;-D

I don't know that Jacoby Jones is necessarily an upgrade over Ginn, and it depends on which James you're talking about (if you got Edge that's great, but I doubt he's on your WW).

I also would try to trade Vince Young, but that's because I'm really not all that confident in him this year.

Other than WR and no RB depth you're looking good. If Alexander and McAllister don't get hurt you may be OK. But watch the waiver wire for wide receivers who may come out of the woodwork to have good seasons.
