This is my first year of fantasy football, and I thought I had a decent team prior to week 1. I need some advice and here is what I'm starting with:
My team currently consists of:
WR Andre Johnson
WR Miles Austin
WR Brandon Marshall
RB Shonn Greene
K Rob Birones
D San Diego
Bench: Josh Freeman, Knowshon Moreno, Percy Harvin, Tony Gonzalez, Devery Henderson, Dallas Defense.
As you can see I got DESTROYED at running back this week, and Roethlisberger didn't help much either. I have Waiver #1 in a 10 team league and I am thinking about doing this:
1: Picking up Cam Newton and dropping San Diego
2: Picking up Akers and dropping Birones
3: Picking up Pierre Thomas or Cadillac and dropping Knowshon Moreno.
If I pick up Newton I might try to trade Freeman or Roethlisberger for a WR or RB. I don't think I need two TE's, but I feel that Tony Gonzalez is a good backup for Gronkowski. Ultimately I know that Mendenhall will do better, but Greene and Moreno are expendable to me now.
RB: Pierre Thomas, Carnell Williams, Ben Tate, Darren Sproles, Derrick Ward, Marcel Reece, CJ Spiller, Danny Woodhead
QB: Henne, Newton, Sanchez, Hasselbeck, Grossman, McCoy
WR: Early Doucet, Randall Cobb, Doug Baldwin, Robert Meachum, Davone Bess
K: Akers, Gould, Scobee, Lindell, Folk, Nugent, Kasay
I've tried to be thorough, and I appreciate any and all advice you all can give. Let me know what you'd do in my situation. Thank you!
