    Looks solid. Charles and Jeffrey should put up big points. Tough decision week to week at QB.

    Our draft is on Labor Day. 12 Teams, all owners can keep up to 4 players. I inhereited a defeated team a few years ago with no superstars on it. But since you can keep up to 4 players,(you have to keep at lest 2...) I am keeping Ryan, Morris and Moreno. Most keep 4 players, hopefully this will get me an earlier shot at a better player than anything on last years roster, listed below. If you keep 3 players, you lose your first draft pick. If you keep 4, you lose your 2nd draft pick as well. Hoping this is the bounce back year for Ryan. Was thinking of keeping Big Ben, but with the Steelers top 2 RBs busted with pot receently, not sure about the Dynamic of their offense. Probably will mean more passing, more fumbles and more Ints as they become one dimensional. Aldeth.... where are you?!

    Wow, that had to be tough. You have a couple of guys that aren't even the NFL anymore.

    So how did it go for everyone this year? In addition to the two leagues I play every year, I got an invite from ESPN to join a national league. The league is more competitive than any I've ever been in. No one is better than 9-4 and no one is worse than 5-8. I'm at 7-6 and need to win this weekend to get in the playoffs (and win the points tie breaker, which is no sure thing).

    In the other two leagues (work and friends league) I'm in the playoffs of course.

    I ended up in 7th place and just missed the playoffs. My team really underperformed in the early part of the season and even s three game winning streak to end the regular season wasn't enough to salvage it. My best move was dumping my quarterbacks and trading kelvin Benjamin straight up for drew brees. It was the classic buy low sell high trade. I also picked up fleener (te Indianapolis) who has done well lately I just couldn't overcome the early season woes of j. Charles, Cameron, bush, and harvin.

    Survived to round two in the two leagues where I made the playoffs (eliminated in the other league).

    Has an official body count been released for the number of fantasy teams Peyton Manning axe murdered yesterday?

    After putting up 106 points this week, my best week f the year!.... it wasn't enough. Up by 8 going into last night's game, my opponent had Jordy Nelson. Jordy killed it. So much for the playoffs. I finished tied for first in my division at a pathetic 6-8. But I lose the tie-breaker as my only 2 division loses were against the guy I was tied with.

    Holy heck. Was your division the NFC south? And did the entire other division have winning records?

    Major props for doing a 16 team league. I've never participated in a league with many teams, but from the slim pickings on the waiver wire in 14 team leagues, it's only that much more barren when you go to 16 teams. It makes yo draft for depth because if someone gets hurt you're majorly hosed.

    I ended up 1 for 2 in making the playoffs. It kills me that I didn't make the playoffs in my work league. Last week was the first round of our playoffs and of course I had the highest score of the week while looking through the window from the outside.
