Aside from those already mentioned...

P. Hillis this season. He's a Top 10 RB in my league. He's not dominating like LJ did when Priest went down, but none the less.

Colston w/TE eligibility, and Austin last season were huge.

i dont think anything trumps colston with the TE eligibility. not only was his production huge, but you were getting an extra WR in your lineup in your TE spot.

I don't know... for me, I think the biggest consideration here is production in weeks 15 and 16, maybe 14 also.

LJ '05 would be the guy pretty easily, but I think he was drafted in most serious leagues. Marion Barber in I believe the same year was almost equally fierce.

A win next week and all is forgotten.

Yeah, that's probably it. You pick up a guy that throws 41 TDs and 4,300, that's hard to beat.

Edge was drafted pretty early in all of my leagues in 1999.
