Nate Burleson
Lance Moore

my team
QB - Brees, Romo

I think your starting the right wrs. In the flex I'd go with Tate and Lance Moore. Maybe Tate can break out a big run when he subs in for Foster and I don't trust Moore but that game should be a shootout and Moore has the potential to make a big play. Thomas would be my other choice if you don't go with Moore.

I wouldn't start Hightower he didn't play last week and he appears to be third on the depth chart at the moment.

okay, didn't know I had to name your whole stating line up.. I hate guy that ask to pick there whole line ups. A opinion one way or another is good not to pick 3, 4 players for some..But I appologize for not picking more so I go with Hightower and Thomas at flex

I would take Lance Moore first, and I think I might take a chance with Damian Williams. If you can only afford one off the WW, then I would go Moore and take a chance with Hightower. If he does play, CAR is terrible against the run. Surely he can be productive.

Living in DC, I think Hightower gets the start. Oline gimpy and Hightower is a great blocker. I think Tate is obsolete this week against TENN formidable D. I would go Hightower and Moore. Real tough calls though.
Thanks for mine.

I'd go with Hightower, although there's a bit of a risk, and I don't think Baldwin is someone to be ignored. You already have rice but I could see him doing just as well as Little.

Mine? viewtopic.php?t=505122

i'm kind of surprised you guys are all so high on lance moore. i almost didn't include him in the list of available guys because i can't stand his unreliability in that offense.

i don't think i would choose to start moore over anybody i currently have, however i do like baldwin and damian williams. question is, who the heck would i even drop for one of these guys?

keep in mind, due to the size of our rosters, this league becomes very deep. guy's like tate and ridley should be held on to.

Its not like we're discussing world class players here almost everybody you listed could end up doing nothing. Damian Williams has only caught more than one pass in one game this year there's about 40 guys I would start over him. Baldwin could be an interesting play but when you start digging this deep I think you go with your gut.
