Ahh....see this is much better. Your QBs and WRs are really good, so are the TEs. You have 3 TEs...you gotta trade one of them. You need a RB for sure. Love the two DEFs too...but get a RB. Taylor is not going to do much this year IMO after Minn. drafted Harvin.

I like Lee Evans...but not in fantasy football. He is very very inconsistent. 2-3 weeks he won't do anything and then he will have a big week. I would try to trade Lee Evans and Dallas Clark for a decent RB. Or see if you can land a rookie RB like Moreno without giving up too much or find one in the FA...I like Donald Brown or McCoy will perform better than Chester Taylor.

Cool.. Thanks a lot for the advice! I appreciate it. Just one last question:

two of my receivers have the same bye week, is it better to just pick up an extra receiver at that time or should i try to get another receiver via trading?

Only trade them if you can get receiver of equal value in return.

If you stay active in FA...you'll find a Wr in the free agency. There are always couple of Wrs who break out. Nab one of them. Same goes for the RB. There will be injuries and a back-up will start for extended period of time, get him.
Looking at my WR:
-Lee Evans
-Roddy White
-Anquan Boldin
-Josh Morgan

I looked in free agency and Isaac Bruce is there along with Muhsin Muhammad.. Should I trade any of my previous WR's for one of those two or no?
I'm no expert, but I would probably just drop Zach Miller and try to pick up a RB with potential that's still available. Like a Rashad Jennings, Shonn Greene (if you're lucky), or Glen Coffee. That 3rd TE isn't doing anything for you, and probably isn't tradeable. So you may as well drop him and roll the dice on someone.
Shonn Greene, Leon Washington, and Glen Coffee are all still available.. Which one would be the better choice in this scenario?

With both Washington and Greene on the same team, wouldn't the safer bet be to pick up Coffee?
