I haven't played 15 teams before so I can't really say what a good team should look like but it looks like it would compete very well in a 12 team league. I really like the Rogers/Jennings connection. You have Sanchez to limit risk if Aaron Rogers were to go down.
I might consider trading Matt Forte for Clinton Portis and a receiver with high upside. I drafted Forte high myself and argued that Cutler could only help Forte... from all early indications, it looks like the Cutler critics are right. He rarely checks down.. Olsen and Forte got almost zero passes their way. Sure, we could ask Cutler to turn it down... but it also looks like the Bear's defense is about to fall apart with no Urlacher. This means Cutler will need to play catch up. Portis on the other hand has a nice schedule through to the playoffs.
Portis and Cotchery for Forte?
This is the first year that I've done a 15 team league before (it was actually supposed to be a 16 team league, but the last player pulled out right before the draft). I've done 12 team and 10 team leagues before (as have all of the people playing with me this season), but nobody in our league has ever done a 15 team league, so we're all kind of feeling it out and trying to figure out how to get ahold of players that fill positions of need.
I've definitely been giving consideration to moves similar to the ones that you've suggested. Steve Breaston is the player that I'm going to drop next when I go back to the waiver wire (not that there's much left with a 15 team league
) and I've been debating the Mewelde Moore / Rashard Mendenhall situation and trying to figure out which one is going to get the carries if Willie Parker continues to struggle.
The Cutler situation in Chicago does have me a bit worried about Forte, for the reasons that you mentioned. If he continues to struggle, there are a couple of teams in our league that are really struggling at the RB position that would certainly have to, at the very least, consider trading for him if I put him on the trade block. That's certainly a possibility if he doesn't get back to being an upper-tier fantasy running back.
