For future reference, we have a roster rating forum Here.
-Donovan McNabb is a good quarterback but he's sort of injury prone so you're right in that you should have a backup QB on your roster.
-Torry Holt and Andre Johnson are both very good receivers, Cotchery did well last year, and I expect good things out of Curtis this year.
-LT and Bush are two very good starting RBs, especially especially especially if your league scores points per reception (PPR). Lynch and Norwood are good backups.
-Todd Heap is a stud TE and Eric Johnson showed a lot of potential in SF. I think he'll do very well in New Orleans' passing-heavy offense.
-You could do worse than Jason Hanson at kicker.
-Philadelphia was a very good defense a few years ago but this year they're borderline top 10.

The first thing you should do is make sure you don't have any free roster spots to pick up QBs after the draft. If you absolutely must cut somebody, I guess you should probably cut Eric Johnson.
Otherwise I think you have a pretty good team for a 10-team league.

The Waiver Wire is a simple term for fantasy football free agents...Players not on a team are "on the Waiver Wire". You want to pick up a quarterback off of the Waiver Wire.

When a player is dropped from a team there's usually a period of a day or more when the player is described as being on Waivers. What that means is that instead of the player going on a first come, first serve basis, teams put in bids for the player and whoever has the highest waiver priority gets him. After a few days if nobody wants him, the player goes to free agency and it's first-come first-serve.

Sorry, i will post in the other section in the future.

Its in a non PPR league, I wanted Brandon jacobs in the third, but someone took him in the early 2nd, and bush fell to me in the 20th spot, so I had to take him.

Do I start bush even if this isn't a PPR league???

Should i pick Up Carolina, san fran, minny, green bay or oakland defense, and drop philly???

I think Eric johnson will be hugh this year, so I wanted to keep him for trade bait, for after heaps bye week.

Should i pick up alex smith, chad pennighton, rex grossman, steve mcnair, or Jeff Garcia.

Don't worry about posting in the wrong forum. This is the beginner forum, after all.
All things considered you got a whole lot of good value picks. Bush is a good back, PPR or not...Especially if you picked him 20th overall.
At the moment the Eagles are better than any of those defenses.
Of the quarterbacks available I'd take Alex Smith.

I have another guy giving me this offer, but I really don't think its that good, I think I would rather Cutler, than bret Farve.

Send me Andre Johnson and
I'll give you Bret Favre and your choice out of:
McGahee, Green, White, Coles, or Galloway
