Lewis=trial mid season
Taylor= a lot of injuries

if neither of these happen then you will be fine, if one happens you'll be ok if both happen you're screwed. Nice depth on the surface though and I doubt the trial will hurt Lewis' carries since it's going to happen during the playoff hunt so your big question is Taylor and if he can stay healthy.

I'm definitely not envious. Any chance on trading out of 1 of your top 2 backs into something else?

And wrong forum.

Lewis and Taylor is great RB combo. Nobody knows for sure but my gut feeling is that Lewis' lawyers will continue the suit so that it does not interfere with the season. Fragile Fred's injury concerns are way overblown. Barber is normally a good #3 but I don't like him in Yahoo publics because it's 25 rushing yards per point and Hearst might be worthless. So your depth could use some work IMHO.

if it's "for fun" then it's " for free"...good chance to learn how to muck a roster all year long, and the in's and out's of trading. waiver wire etc.

the only bad part is you said it's a work league...that also means you'll be taking crap from your peers. Get some wading boots ;-D

I dont think you have that much depth at all. JLew and Taylor are a solid 1-2. No worries other than those that were mentioned - trial and injuries (although injuries shouldnt be a major factor).

Barber as a #3 scare me - he is fumblicious and will actually lose a meaningful amount of carries to Ron Dayne.

Hearst is almost worthless at this point, and as Bell recovers and learns the offense, Hearst's value will drop even lower.

I recommend that you find a TD vulture - an Alstott type of player - over Hearst.

Your starters arent bad but your bench is pretty weak. Hearst isn't going to do much and Tiki may lose some carries/Tds to Dayne.

You should be fine barring any injuries and use Tiki on the bye weeks.

By the way, this post should be in the Roster Ratings forum.
