You don't have many bench positions there. Yes, your RB's are weak. Both look like they'll have reduced carries this year. Benson is a decent backup as far as playing time goes. It sucks that yu don't have more bench spots since that would help you build RB depth and hopefully keep you supplied with starting RB's as the season goes on. You might have to shop around Brees for some RB help. I could see you doing something like trading Brees and Jones or Addai for a RB and a QB like Garrard. With Ben and Garrard I think you could probably hold your own. Just a thought. Good luck!

I actually have 1 empty BN spot..so a total of 4 BN spots

Who would be a better RB pick up off waivers Sammy Morris, LeSean McCoy, Bradshaw or Norwood? Also should I, or is there a need to upgrade any WR by switching out for Ted Ginn Jr or Percy Harvin?

I think you need to pick up McCoy for that open slot right now. Westbrook is a bigger injury risk than Jacobs. Those are some nice receivers on your waiver wire.

You need to slot Anthony Gonzalez in your # 3 WR spot instead of Walter. I would hold for now, but Harvin could blow up so keep a close eye on him.

I like McCoy after reading your sleeper article (added)...would Benson for Percy be a bad move? Also I was offered Santana Moss for Gonzales..I know its early for trades but would that be an upgrade? Should I counter for Walter?

Hold Gonzalez there. I think you need to keep Benson since you are thin at RB. You may have to use Benson if Jones or Addai start to lose carries.

What about dropping LenDale or Benson for Bell?
