I'd start Bradshaw. He's a upper tier RB,and as a flex play is a great start.
no need to get fancy. Roll with your top guys.

Nicks isn't 100% healthy n back in shape and Dallas has a much improved secondary. I think Bradshaw will be relied on often by the giants.
Kevin smiths got a nice matchup, but he's in a pass heavy offense, and is a injury waiting to happen.

Also, pass on Lloyd. You've got plenty of WR depth. Keep Bradshaw.


Help me out with my TE situation for week 1?

I agree. I'd start Bradshaw over Kevin Smith.

Bradshaw is healthy so gotta go with him.

No to the trade, the only guys on your bench aren't gonna be starters (Smith is only gonna start until Leshoure returns from his suspension), Hillis and Rodgers are backups and it remains to be seen what their fantasy impact will be - gotta hang onto your 3 starters.

In response to your trade question in my post:
Bradshaws health does worry me some, and I picked up Wilson as my RB4 thinking he takes over as the feature back mid/late season IF Bradshaw goes down.

That being said.... Bradshaws still a upper tier fantasy back, which has become a rare commodity.I drafted Lloyd and like his upside with the Pats but there's ALOT of mouths to feed in NE. I'd hold onto him as a flex play weekly and added RB depth untill you find the perfect deal or see what Lloyd does. As long as Bradshaws healthy you'll be able to get value in return ( you'll likely be starting Marshall/Dez weekly at WR and Antonio Brown should be your 3rd option.)
