  1. Thank you sir. Just forgot him. I added him at #29 with Mike Wallace. He has the advantage of really being Newton's only WR weapon again, but they are playing a tough defense that gave them a massively difficult time last season.

  2. You're back! Wish I checked this site again and saw this yesterday before I set my lineup and played Golden Tate over Boldin...sigh

    Anyway, quick question: Is Broyles worth keeping on my bench, or drop him for someone else? I know it's early but there's some talent with potential sitting in FA and we get $100 to bid on players for the season.

    12-tm 0.5PPR League

    Current roster:
    QB: Romo
    RB: Martin, Charles
    WR: V Jackson, A Brown
    TE: V Davis
    WR/TE: Boldin
    DEF: STL
    K: Bailey
    Bench WR: Tate, Jeffery, Broyles; RB: L Miller, Woodhead; QB: Bradford

    Are any of these FA's worth putting a bid on over Broyles (or any of my bench):

    Andre Roberts, Edelman, Burleson, Doug Baldwin, Jonathan Dwyer

    I know it's early but there's some talent with potential sitting in FA, and we get $100 to bid on players for the season. I'm sure a few of these will be getting bids tonight (someone bought Julius Thomas for $37 already...)

    Much thanks for the advice, and glad to see this site is still running!
