None of them yet. What's wrong with being deep at RB, especially considering Gore's injury prone and Green is somewhat of a question mark (although I personally think he'll have a good year)?

Only reason i am looking to deal is that i passed up on all the top flight wideouts. We start 2rb and 3 wr with yahoo stndrd scoring. My wideouts are Dwayne Bowe, Derrick Mason, Johnny Knox, Aroshmodu, and Jacoby Jones. So i am hoping that one of the later players have break out years. I also have a lot more depth at RB behind my 3 starters with Mike Bush, Addai, and Thomas Jones. Very weak @ QB with Henne as my starter and Orton backing him up. So im loaded at RB but just have unknowns at qb/wr

Then personally I would try to package Addai, Mike Bush, and Derrick Mason for a top flight WR, and stick with Greene and Gore (TJ/Grant back up) at RB.

Or just Addai and Bush for a decent QB, and stick where you're at at WR.

Ummm why does it matter if its anoymous web advice or non-web advice? I am just trying to get input on my team and figure out how to better my fantasy football team in order to attain fantasy football world dominance

Just curuious why you drafted all of these RB's if you knew you had to start 3 Wr.......:think2:

I did not plan on it. But i wanted Gore with the 5th, and in a 12 team league i could not pass on Grant on the way back because he is early 2nd round value/late first round depending on how you feel about him. I am high on him as he is not in a running back by committee. I was hoping Roddy White, Miles Austin, Desean Jackson would get back to me but they all went before my next pick-that left me with the choice of Ced Benson, Ryan Matthews, Shonne Green and then Greg Jennings. That is when i decided i would try to package a rb for a WR i felt was better than Jennings. In hind site, i should have snagged Miles Austin in round 2 and got one of the 3 running backs in round 3. Also, went with Gates as TE as he will give me good value as a #2 WR....and every year i stockpile rb's for an unknown reason and i struggle to change my habbits

I think now you have no choice but to do what Harry suggested earlier and just wait.

Not only to see if where you stand with those RB's, but also because I'm not so sure anyone would even trade you just yet anyhow.

Hopefully all 3 of those RB's will perform well early on so you can dump one of them on someone who has an extra WR that you can help you.....

i don't think you are that weak at wr, you have some good players and having gates is a big plus. I really like bowe and knox has home run potential. jacoby has nice value also. I would see if you could trade for flacco at qb. not easy without looking at all the teams to see who needs what. if me i would look for hakeem nicks in trade for a rb, and see who has eli and try and get him to pair with nicks. but i like flacco since you have mason if you could get him. playing standard scoring in yahoo rbs may not be so important. to have a rb who can just fall acriss the goal line for a tub and get you 6pts is big. so my opinion would be target flacco or hakeem nicks and eli manning

i drafted tonight in yahoo standard scoring, have been playing in this league since 1998 and the same group of guys. they love being deep rb and go for rb early. for example i had the 2nd pick, but i traded him for the andre johnson and got a 4th round pick in exchange for my 6th round pick. i passed on all day peterson which many say is stupid. but here is what i ended up with and i will be trading a wr for a good rb. rb are more prone to get hurt so waiver wire and backups have good value. i draft wr's early every year and by round 4 will have 3 wr's.

1. andre johnson
2. roddy white
3. marques colston
4. jermichael finley
4. arian foster
5. joe flacco
6. no pick
7. malcom floyd
8. matt ryan
9. 49 ers def
10. jerome harrison
11. laurence maroney
12. jabar gaffney
13. larry johnson
14. leon washington
15. mike williams bucs
16. louis murphy

I think I just drafted the worst team known to man kind. It's so bad I don't even want to go over the list of players.

Yeah, out with it Rob. That's like admitting you F'ed the ugliest girl in the bar and then not showing a picture. Inquiring minds want to know.

Do i accept this trade- Offered Drew Brees and Ryan Matthews for Frank Gore and Kyle Orton... Would be starting Matthews next to a hopefully healthy Steven Jackson. Problem is that i think the drop off from Gore to Matthews is more than from the red hot Kyle Orton to Drew Brees, any advice?

I had Matthews and Gore neck and neck and Brees is big over Orton. Do that trade in a second.

Do you really have Matthews and Gore neck and neck? I mean both teams have looked bad but besides Vernon Davis, all SanFran has is Frank Gore. You really think the Gore to Matthews drop off isn't that big?
