I have one league where I have been fortunate to start 7-2.Here is my all star team(cough cough)QB: T.Brady, J.PlummerRB: J.Lewis, W.McGahee, W.Dunn, K.Jones, S.Morris, TJ Duckett, T.HenryWR: R.Moss, J.Walker, R.Wayne, R.GardnerTE: T.GonzoK: Kaeding/K.BrownDef: Pittsburgh, T.BayI think for a start 2 WR, I have come out smelling like a rose considering Moss was my 1st round pick. I traded D.Staley and Keyshawn Johnson week 4 to obtain T.Brady. I have gotten fairly solid play from my QBs and Jake Plummer has really drove a stake through my oponents the last 2 weeks...it can't last though, can it?My RB are a rag tag group...I got McGahee on waivers of all things the 1st couple weeks of the season...it happens. Kevin Jones is useless to me right now and I would like to cut him but I am not sure who I would get. My team if you look at it in week 4-5 was very average and I was 2-2 at that point. In fact I started the season 0-2 and have ripped off 7 in a row. The past 4 weeks has seen Plummer, Gonzo, and McGahee really turn it on.I did not draft Walker, in fact I traded Faulk/Driver for him and got Henry to ensure the Bills backfield and get a better frontline starter at WR with R.Moss out. When you look at my team, I don't think it strikes fear...I don't have a Culpepper, Priest, Green, or an Owens...those guys scare me to death. However, being in 1st place you can say that I basically have a solid backfield with a lot of RB to choose from different weeks and a better than average WR core when fully helthy...if R.Moss comes back it could be special. Gonzo has to keep producing in order to have that big edge at TE that so many owners crave.What are you putting on the frontline? What do you attribute to your success this season? And what starters you are playing have you worried for the playoff stretch/run?

6-3QBs: Favre, BreesRBs: Barber, Barlow, Blaylock,Wells, W Green, J JonesWRs: Harrison, Coles, K Johnson, A DavisTEs: McMichael, LJ SmithK: VanderjagtD: Buffalo, ChicagoObviously I have ridden Barber to my record, but the QBBC of Favre and Brees has also helped me tremendously. I have won 5 out of my last six games so I hope I am not peaking too soon.The prospects of starting Barlow at my RB2 for the rest of the season had me :hot: so I just completed a deal of Favre/Green for Harrington/McGahee. My RBs are now looking better and I hope this puts me in better position for the playoffs.

That McGahee deal is a steal in my opinion. I think at this point you have to put the rock in Brees hands and let him go to work for you.

With Blaylock backing up Priest I would say you are in good shape. I would consider getting Larry Johnson as well....you don't know how long Priest will be out.

No doubt. I think GB focuses more on the run the second half of the season. Brees should continue to put up points. His remaining schedule is BYE, @Oak, @KC, DENVER, TAMPA BAY, @Cle, Week 16 @Ind, KC.

You look pretty solid. i am sure the decreas in C-Pep the past few weeks has you worried a bit, and Moss might be out for the rest of the season. I hate to think it but it could be true. I wrote a thread on when the other shoe would drop for him but everyone seems to think he will be fine.

I offered him Fred Taylor and a WR of choice ( I didn't have CJ at the time), he insisted on taking Lelie and Taylor plus he had to have Mark Brunell or he wouldn't make the deal. Afterwards, he bragged about winning out on the trade. To make this deal sweeter, the guy is the defending champ, who knocked me out of the playoffs last year!

This is probably the worst 8-1 team ever, but here it is (8-team league):We got to protect up to 5 players (I protected 4). Before the season I traded an 8th-round pick for Travis Henry :bag: Start 1 QB, 1 RB, 1 WR/TE, 3 Flex (so up to 4 RB), 1 K, 1 IDP, 1 DefenseScoring is essentially TD-base with almost nothing for yardage.I will say that I think my success so far speaks to being active in the Free Agent market and not being afraid to cut guys you loved in the draft but didn't pan out. I protected 4 RB, and at most one (Taylor) might start this week, yet I was able to dig up out of favor guys like E Smith to get me through.QBs Currect - Bulger (Rd 7.05), T Green (11.05), B Leftwich (FA - Week 7-IR)QB Drafted but dropped: Palmer (12.05)RBs Current - Holmes (Protect-IR), F Taylor (Protect), Henry (Protect), S Davis (Protect), W Dunn (FA - Week 2), E Smith (FA - Week 2), D Blaylock (FA - Week 8), O Smith (FA - Week 10 (!)), A Thomas (FA - Week 10)RB Drafted but Cut: Duckett (Rd 10.05)WRs Current - D Mason (5.05), R Gardner (FA - Week 9)WRs Drafted but Cut: Coles (Rd 9.05), Chambers (Rd 13.05), Burress (16.05)K Current - S Graham (FA - Week 9)K Drafted but Cut: Longwell (Rd 15.05)DEF Current - Baltimore (Rd 6.05), Jets (FA - Week 4)DEF Drafted but Cut: Miami (Rd 14.04)IDP Current - Charles Grant (FA - Week 7)IDP Drafted But Cut: Ogunleye (Rd 15.04)-QG

12 team dynasty league:QB: C'pep, McNair, BrooksRB: O. Smith, Taylor, Pittman, McGahee, R. Johnson, Wheatley, HenryWR: C. Johnson, Burress, Roy WilliamsI'm leading my division with a 6-3 record, and I'm 3rd overall in points scored in the league.While my team appears very solid, the team leading the league in points has an even more stellar cast; however, he has no depth. I'm praying for an injury to either Tiki, Ahman, or that Moss stays out for some time.I've been trying to deal some of my RB depth for a top 10 WR or top 3 RB, but no takers so far.

I should add that I actually turned down the following trade about 3 weeks ago. Perhaps I shouldn't have, but I feel that having Priest is like getting to start an entire extra playerI would give up Priest.He would give up McAllister, Holt, McGaheeRemember, it's all on the TDs - yardage, receiving, etc. means squat in this league. I'll also add that the guy who offered the trade is in my division, is 7-2, and already has Tomlinson and Portis - there's no way I could let him have Priest too!-QG

This is a 14-team keeper league with $100 salary cap, with rules that meant some players' values are out of whack because they happened to get certain players cheap. 7-2 - 1st in division, 2nd overall.D McNabb 13 (Kept from last year)K Collins 1 (FA)D Davis 3 (Kept from last year)L Suggs 3 (Kept from last year)M Faulk 30 (Kept from last year)R Droughns 1 (FA)I Bruce 8 (Drafted this year)J Smith 8 (Drafted this year)M Muhammed 1 (Drafted this year)D Terrell 1 (FA)J Witten 1 (Drafted this year)D Graham 2 (Drafted this year)J Kasay 1 (Drafted this year)B Cundiff 1 (Drafted this year)Seattle 1 (Drafted this year)Pittsburgh 1 (Drafted this year)I got McNabb and Faulk in a trade last year when my team was 0 and 4 and needed help, and McNabb and Faulk were ineffective and injured, respectively. I got D Davis and Suggs in FA last year, and the rules state that the salary goes up $2 each year you keep them. This season, I wanted to get an RB that was left (Q Griffin) and at least one of the best WRs left on the board (I got two instead, Bruce and J Smith). I lucked out and got Droughns on waivers to replace Griffin the week after Droughns first start. My best picks were my TEs and WRs. My Ks stink - but their is no one better in FA now (must have 2 kickers on roster - that means 28 kickers are not in FA). I play the 3-time defending champs (he's owned Preist Holmes for years). I hope to win and further solidify my playoff chances.

This is in my opinion the shakiest of the teams that have posted so far.I think Bledsoe is a waste of space. Pennington is out awhile. Carr is really a #2 QB so you are gonna drop a few down the stretch here.Alexander is solid, Jones/Barlow...not so much right now, O.Smith(could be big but MN is really hard to figure)Javon Walker is stable...like Keenan as your #2 down the stretch.

For WR/TE, 1 point for each catch starting with the 6th catch. Kicker scoring is normal. No bonuses/penalties for QB Yardage or INT.-QG

WR: Rod Smith, Nate Burleson, Andre Johnson, Doug Gabriel, Drew Bennett

TE: Shockey

I went RB and LB for the first 8 rounds which left me pretty thin at WR. Timely pickups from the waiver wire and trades have led me to where I am. I picked up and traded Lamar Gordon for Andre Johnson after week one, and recently traded Plummer and Rod Gardner for Leftwich and Shockey.

Thank you :)I'm just hoping that Henry lands somewhere next year that might warrant my trading of the pick for him. I actually had that in mind a little bit when I did it (though I hardly anticipated a big goose egg for the season from him). An 8th-rounder may not seem a big deal, but the bigger deal was that it upped my number of protects to 4 from 3, which can make a big difference in picking out the young RBs (like K Jones who I lost out on) that can be a foundation for later seasons - which does have a little bit of value.I think slightly older RBs sometimes are undervalued in keeper league when compared to the guys with 'potential'. Perhaps this is because people are hunting for the next Marshall Faulk imagining an RB with a studly solid 10-year career. They tend to forget guys like Ickey Woods who were brilliant until that one big injury brought them down. I see ALL running backs as having a maximum shelf life of 4 years (which is a big reason why I just can't seem to give up Holmes). Injury replacements are as likely as being that future stud as anybody else (heck in the league where I have Deuce, I got him late in the year as a handcuff for Ricky). This paragraph was just sort of a random 2 cents I guess :) -QG

Here's mine; I'm 7-2 in a 12 team redraft league (good for 1st and best overall record).Start 1QB/2RB/2WR/1TE/1K; mandatory roster of 2QB/4RB/4WR/2TE/2KQB: Manning, GrieseRB: A Green, C Brown, W Dunn, TJ DuckettWR: T Owens, R Moss, A Boldin, D PattenTE: D Graham, J PutzierK: M Stover, B Cundiff3 trades this year:week 3 (or so) traded W Dunn to acquire McAllister after injury to Deuceweek 6 (or so) traded T Brady and C Martin to acquire P Manning and TJ Duckettweek 10 just traded McAllister, A Johnson, Carr for Moss, Dunn, GrieseI'm ####ed if Moss isn't back in time for the playoffs, but figure that Boldin should fill in adequately while Moss is out. The deal for Manning has been huge for me, as passing TDs are 6 points in this league.

12-team Redraft, start 1QB, 1RB, 2WR, 1TE, Flex, K, DST6-3 record, a couple points out of the league highQB: Manning, RattayRB: Alexander, Martin, TJones, OSmithWR: Boldin, Coles, Lloyd, Colbert, Toomer, KRobTE: Heap, StevensK: Josh BrownDST: BuccaneersI'm working like mad to deal Martin for Harrison. I envision OSmith as my flex player from here on out, with TJones a perfectly serviceable fallback.With Harrison and Boldin in my WR slots, I should be set, with plenty of depth.I need Heap to get healthy.Liking my outlook if I can just get that Harrison deal to go through. Otherwise I've got more RB depth than I can utilize, and shaky starting WRs.

I keep getting told I'm a fraud by my leaguemates and having an outside perspective should be interesting.

Currently 7-2 (tied 1st overall) and 1st in scoring. 12 team auction league ($100 cap). Price beside drafted players.

Start 2QB, 2RB, 3WR/TE, 1K, 1D

Pass: 1pt/20yds, 3pt/TD

Rush/Rec: 1pt/10yds, 6pt/TD

QB: Leftwich(8), Carr(9), McCown

RB: Holmes(32), McAllister, KJones, Blaylock

WR: Holt(17), Boldin(2), Chambers, L. Evans

K: Stover(1), Carney

D: Bears(1), Indy(1)

Dealt Staley & Bledsoe to the Stephen Davis owner during panic mode for Favre & KJones.

Dealt Favre, S. Morris, L. Coles, Gonzo for McAllister, McCown, & Chambers

Auction values are out of whack because of too many auction newbies. True studs went for FAR too high, and in a 12 team league I almost found myself with all my cash and no clear-cut #1 guys. I decided I had to pay whatever it took to get a top 3 RB, then roll the dice on some QBs I felt good about.

I believe I've got a reasonable shot at the title if Holmes & Lefty are going strong by week 14. Gotta love that JAX schedule.

Just looking through the rosters, there's a lot of teams with Manning at QB. I'd be curious to see if any other player is more strongly correlated with a good record/playoff position. God knows he has singlehandledly won games for me in the past 2 weeks.

I have a few - they have a lot of different components, actually. And I don't consider myself "playoff bound" until I am actually locked in.Avoiding the jinx.Suffice it to say that there are a large variety of ways to make a standout team.
