First off, I would start someone other than Devery. You have some good back ups.

I would also seriously consider trading for another RB. You have a lot of very trade-able WRs (which is good!). If you can, trade a couple of them to get the best RB you can (but don't get yourself cheated on a deal). You don't have any back up RBs, and Ryan Mathews wouldn't be bad to have on your bench.

been trying to trade... people are reluctant to bite, or reluctant to throw out resonable counter offers... Mostly my fault probably for being to consurvative with my offers.

Anyone else have advice?

I would start Boldin over Devery. Other then that your team looks fine. Just wait on CJ2K to pick it up. Just advice in general, is make sure you draft a decent QB and TE. It's not good when you have to start Flacco or Eli. Fred Davis we will see i guess.

Help?

I would start Holmes, Boldin and probably A.J. Green over Henderson. I would put Henderson at the bottom of the list of your WW. I know Holmes is not seeing the ball but if the Jets want to win they are going to have to figure out a way to get it to him.

I also agree that you have some better recievers than Devery ... but with the depth there, I would just make sure to play the match ups each week.

also, look around your league to find someone that is week in WR depth and offer up a trade of 2 of your mid-level receivers for maybe a good RB.

best of luck!

I would play Eli over Flacco. Arizona lets QB's abuse them. They are some kind of sadomasochistic team. Not to mention Eli has all his weapons back this week. Hakeen Nicks, Manningham returns, and now Victor Cruz from out of nowhere. Eli would have to be a paraplegic to not have a good day. (No offense to any paraplegics out there)

Play all four of those RB's. Even Chris Johnson. One of these days CJ2K is gonna wake up and remember who he is and have a game like no other. You'll want to be there when it happens. I would consider getting an additional tight end. I wouldn't want to have to rely on Fred Davis all year long. Check the waiver wire for Scott Chandler. Everyone here is right don't play Devery Henderson. He was only a product of injuries to Colston and Lance Moore. Now that they are both back he will revert back to his 5 points a game play-style. Obviously you'll want to keep in Vincent Jackson and Mike Wallace. For a FLEX receiver I'm gonna have to say.... Denarious Moore with A.J. Green in a close second.
