12 teams, .5 PPR League, 6 pt. TD passes

QB Rivers
WR AJ
WR Jennings
WR Welker
RB Lendale
RB LJ
TE Gates
W/R Leon Wash

B Rashard Mendenhall, Shonn Greene, Justin Gage, Robert Meachem, Brett Favre

Trading away Favre and either Gage/Meachem for Jamaal Charles would really be a decent move for me looking at my current RB situation, no? And if so, which wideout do you think I should trade away preferably?

It wouldn't hurt to get Charles as a handcuff, but I'd be more worried about your starting RBs before you worry about your backups.

A lot needs to happen to the Jets backfield for Shonn Greene to be a solid fantasy play this year. If you have the space it's worth stashing him, but I think deciding which games he vultures some carries and a TD or two is going to give you headaches all year.

And I know Meachem plays for the fun 'n gun Saints, but I think he'll be battling for the occassional home-run ball with Henderson while Colston, Moore, and Bush (and maybe Shockey) get the majority of targets.

Oh, trust me. I am trying to figure something out for my RB's. Ive had some lengthy chats about how this draft went and my WR strategy.

Getting Jamaal would almost guarantee that between him or LJ, one of my RB's will be getting the bulk of the carries. If LJ goes down and I don't have Jamaal, Im in trouble.

You think I should ditch Shonn Greene for Buckhalter, Hillis, B Scott, K Faulk, Sammy Morris etc?

Go with Buckhalter if Knowshon's injuries appear to linger. In Denver you never know who's getting the carries, though.
Go with Scott for a potential starter if Benson sucks. The buzz is getting louder around Scott.
Go with Faulk for a solid, low-ceiling PPR plug-n-play.
