I like Itsurbirthday, DBL XL and Perez the best. Tree Devils and Hold my Vick get a honorable mention.

STARTERS
QB Eli Manning, NYG QB
RB Jamaal Charles, KC RB
RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Cin RB
WR Calvin Johnson, Det WR
WR Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR
TE Tony Gonzalez, Atl TE
FLEX Hakeem Nicks, NYG WR
D/ST Falcons D/ST D/ST
K Garrett Hartley, NO K

BENCH Brandon Lloyd, NE WR
Ben Tate, Hou RB
Robert Meachem, SD WR
Denarius Moore, Oak WR
Sidney Rice, Sea WR Q
Josh Freeman, TB QB
Alex Smith, SF QB

Ok QB you are fine except you should drop one of the backups and grab a (RB, WR, TE).

RB you are hurting badly. Jamal Charles wont be quite the same till next year. BGE is a very very low #2 and Tate is just a very talented backup. Your RB's will be the fall of this team.

WR's are very very solid. You have the top 2 WR's available and Hakeem Nicks who is top 10. Lloyd should be solid on NE but not as good as the years before. Meachem should be sufficient fill in and Denarius Moore is a solid sleeper that will surprise this year.

TE is ok but a bit average.

So what I would do is trade Either Nicks or Fitz to upgrade at RB. Even throw out Lloyd into the mix and be sure to point out his last years numbers. He wont duplicate them the idea is to make them think he will so you get good players in return.

OK thanks. Ithought that taking calvin then fitz in the first 2 rounds, made my WRs the heart and sole of my team. Then i was suppressed that Ialso got charles and nicks. I don't want to have to give up my 3 starting WRs to get another RB, so do you think I could flip lloyd, moore, and maybe meachem for a solid RB? Maybe a guy like steven jackson or Ryan Matthews or someone like that? Would that be worth it? DO you think they'd accept it? If not, who should I target?

Your WRs are stacked no doubt about it but as the previous poster pointed out you could use some help at RB. Id def try and make a trade with all the good WRs you have especially since this isnt a PPR league you need to have a stronger backfield. Noticed no one owns Mikel Leshoure Id consider dropping someone and scooping him he could be solid this year when he returns from suspension. Just my .02 and GL.

Those WR's are the soul of the team the problem is you have serviceable ones on the bench like Floyd. Lets say Nicks averages 15 points a week and floyd averages 13. Lets also say that BGE averages 10 points per week and you can trade Nicks for a RB that produces 15 points a week.

You lose 2 on the WR but gain 5 on the RB.

Id say try to trade Floyd first if you can get a started on a team and if you cant trade Nicks and get a better one. Find the guy who has extra RB's and is not real strong at WR or generally the guy who is weak at WR. Take advantage of their weaknesses to upgrade yours. Win Win
