The "Best Player" seems like Gresham. Liked him coming out of college. He could have a solid season. Better than Graham, I think.

You look like you need RB help. Caddy Williams wouldn't be a bad addition. It looks like he'll get the Jackson's spare carries which - him being questionable this early into the season - could be fairly helpful. I always liked his talent.

As far as WRs - where you are strong but lack depth - I like Nate Burleson. I'm a Lions fan in all honesty, but Titus Young doesn't seem to be coming on strong. Even if he does Burleson will still see a lot of time on the field. I like him better than all other WRs you named available for FA. He's a true starting WR for what could be a solid offense this year.

you wouldn't grab Henderson now that Colston is out?

Lance Moore is coming back, right? So is Colston, I believe. Henderson is good; but he's more of a deep threat than anything else. It's hard to count on his points coming in any given week.

I'm fairly sure Burleson will top last year's stats- 700 total yards, 6 TDs - as long as Staff is healthy. That's sort of a "Best Case Scenario" for Henderson.

alright well Im going to wait and see how reggie bush does tonight because I really need to try and find another RB if he doesn't perform. But the players available that are the safest I agree are the WRs. Do you think Fitzpatrick or Cam NEwton are for real?

Cadillac seems like your best option.

None of the WR's are gonna get starts over Roddy/Johnson or Jackson barring injury.
Im not high on Greene @ all, so any RB that may be able to exploit a good matchup makes sense

I liked Cam coming into the season. I think he's *Relatively* for real. Fitzpatrick has proven he's useful. But do you really need a 3rd QB? Stafford could be a starter in a lot of leagues; and Romo may not have proven the nay-sayers wrong; but from a fantasy standpoint he put up a huge game against a top-level D. You're solid at QB. I've been really high on Cam since the Panthers(They seriously have weapons) drafted him; but I question the need.

Cadillac looks like the best option from a potential-starter standpoint. Bush may be worth a look.

Safe pick is Nate Burleson to improve depth, but he will never start over your stud WRs. Similiar to your QB, TE, and WR positions. There are good players available, but do you really need them.
