Honestly I don't think Marcedes Lewis is even an asset at TE without David Garrard and you already have Gates. I'm never a fan of carrying backup TEs except during bye weeks anyway. I would definitely drop either Breaston or Lewis for Cam. As a matter of fact, there must be a better WR out there than Breaston. I say drop both for Cam and a prospective upside add. You've got tons of depth at RB. Find a WR you like and add him. Not knowing who is available in your league I'd say that Jacoby Jones and Early Doucet are likely out there and would be worth fliers.

Lewis would be my first choice followed closely by Williams. Don't expect much from either this season.

roy williams. lewis might pick back up with the rookie QB, and gates has been missing practice.

Lewis seriously broke out last year and would keep him in case Gates goes down (yes I agree about 2 TE rule but it seems with larger rosters there won't be much available.) Grab Newton and you have trade bait you can deal a QB to get a stud WR-3 to join your two studs DJax and White. A package of Orton+Meacham might land you a cheap WR upgrade. Maybe buy low on Dwayne Bowe. I know KC is a mess but he'll still get his. Maybe you could also go after Crabtree on the cheap or IDK let's see...Johnny Knox is another idea...>Manningham while he's hurt....Britt (not a recognized stud yet) Mike Williams (TB) etc types that are down on value (exception Britt - but still)

Roy Williams and it's not even close. He's a chump, he's hurt, and Cutler can't stay upright long enough to find him anyway.

Breaston next.

I dont know how your league is run, but I would drop Orton. Why keep a third QB? The only time you should need to switch QBs is on a bye week. IMO I dont think a third QB is actually needed.

Please Help
