id say you have an awesome team, but if you could improve it would be at K or backup TE

I'd try and get a better #2 RB other than Martin - the guy is getting older and he's bound to slow down some time soon. I'd also look at getting some better depth behind your WR.

But that's a pretty good team!

I think it looks good for now. You have a somewhat old team in the sense of Bruce, Horn, and Martin but I think you are good.

Thanks fellas.

I was thinking about age and production when I drafted Martin and Bruce but I thought they were safer picks than what else was available when I drafted them. I'm hoping JJ Arrington has a big rookie year so I have a little insurance.

I actually drafted Shane Grahm sooner than I wanted to draft a kicker. I tried picking up Jimmy Smith but I think I ran out of time and it drafted for me. At first I was really po'ed but Grahm was the best kicker available at the time and his numbers actually looked pretty good last year.

I'll probably end up picking up some different players in favor of my last two picks (Smith and Barlow).

I just looked at available running backs and they're all either in a running back by committee situation, or they are currently back-ups.

W. Dunn (Atl)
R. Droughns (Cle)
J. Bettis (Pit)
T. Duckett (Atl)
M. Faulk (StL)
L. Johnson (KC)
M. Anderson (Den)
M. Pittman (TB)
L. Suggs (Cle)
D. Blalock (NYJ)
T. Henry (Ten)

There are a lot of quality running backs available, but none are in very good situations. If somebody's counterpart gets hurt for a week or two, they'd all (well, most) warrant a look.

You have a pretty solid team. I too also drafted J.J. Arrington. I hope he pans out for us. I would consider Warrick Dunn or M. Anderson if you can afford to give up a spot. Dunn is perfect for the Falcon's offense, and M. Anderson will be great as long as he remains the starter. Good luck man.

DUDE, get rid of that Giants D and snag Mikey Anderson if he is still available. Even Warrick Dunn should produce better than Martin against certain teams. Like Martin should exlplode against the myopic chiefs, but what about Buffalo twice this year?

Duckett will get a LOT of goal line touches ... might be worth considering also. Plus, Dunn does have a history of injury's ...
