QBs - Brees RBs - SJax, Addai, Hillis, Tolbert, Torain, Lynch, Greene WRs - Austin, Colston, SMoss, L Moore TEs - D Clark D/ST - PIT, ATL K - Carney
There are 2 free agents available that I am interested in. Santonio Holmes and Michael Bush
Holmes has tremendous upside obviously, and I could use a little depth at WR. I had some injury iussues at (SJax and Addai) and Greene has been a turd. RB so I started shedding WRs for RB depth, but I feel more comfortable @ RB now.
The guys I could consider dropping are Greene and Lynch. Greene is just a flier at this point, with value only with an Injury to LT. Bush is on a crappy team, but if he manages to take and hold the starting gig sould be a solid player. Lynch is now in a weak division, and has a lot of upside, but SEA hasn't had a 1000 yard guy since Alexander.
Right now I am leaning towards dropping Greene and picking up Holmes. But also wondering who is a better long term prospect . . . Bush or Lynch? Lynch is more likely to remain the starter, and has had 1000 yard seasons playing for the horrible Bills. If SEA is really comitted to establishing their run game, I have a hunch that Lynch could produce. Bush and Dmac could go back and forth. Keep in mind though the DMac is currently the 6th ranked fantasy RB in my league . . . . sooo.
Drop Greene and pick up Holmes?
*Added - I will have another available roster spot next week after PIT's bye. I only have ATL as a bye week fill in and will be dropping them after this weekend. I can drop Greene and probably pick him up safely next weekend, because I don't think anybody else will be snagging him and I don't think he's going to have a big game vs MIN.
I have a feeling that Lynch has a better chance than many suspect to become a solid fantasy RB with his cake schedule, and is likely to get GL touches. SEA would not have dropped 2 draft picks for him if they weren't planning on using him.
M Bush is not a lock to keep the starting job, considering how well McFadden has played this year. It will be a split or praying for further injury. I think Holmes will probably perform like a WR2, with WR1 upside, and I need another good WR more than I need a 7th RB. Worst case Green breaks out after I am unable to pick him up, I still have Jackson, Hillis, Addai, Torain, Tolbert and Lynch. Still plenty of depth.
I am this close to just making the move. Sanity check please.

It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
im keeping Greene for sure. I dont expect LT to keep producing. if you wanna drop a RB drop Tolbert. Chargers are committed to Matthews and Tolbert's value will drop significantly the next coming weeks.
Though I'd keep an eye on Tolbert's role decrease and McFadden's injury. If Tolbert loses a ton and McFadden misses significant time I like dropping Tolbert for Bush. I also think I like Holmes over Lance Moore but that's just getting picky at that point. I think NO just spreads it out too much for anyone to be consistent. Good Luck!

i would drop greene for lynch. he's in a weak division and sea knows they need to run the ball to win and they've already said he will be a major contributer. and you can add greene back next week but I'd try to upgrade your wr. see if someone will bite on torrain as shanny changes rb's like underwear, package him with moss or colston
