My team

I started this season 0-3, but last week I toasted the competition and now I'm 4-4.  Want to know my lineup?  Well who asked you anyway?

Tom Brady:  Drafted in the 1st round.  He was supposed to be back this year, right?  Well it took him long enough.  Now you know why I started out 0-3.

Ray Rice:  Hell Jess!  Drafted this guy early too.  It's finally panning out as of late and I expect Baltimore to keep giving this guy the ball a lot for the rest of the year.  Willis MacGahee stole a lot of thunder early this year, so much that I picked him up and played him a couple weeks.  Now he rides the bench and is the Next Man Down.  I feel bad for MacGahee.  I have been rooting for this guy ever since that horrible knee injury he got in college.  I have been impressed with how he came back from that and has had a good, if not great NFL career.  Tough dude to say the least.  Go Willis!!

Pierre Thomas:  Frenchie hurt me early this year, but once again he's starting to pan out.  Super fun watching him dive into the end zone last week!  Eff Mike Bell already, give PT the ball!

Bench: MacGahee, Donald Brown (drafted him because I thought Addai wouldn't make it through the year as the starter).

Vincent Jackson:  Another high draft pick.  Panning out big time!  Before the year I considered drafting Chris chambers, all I can say is *whew* on that one.  Looking back on it now, I never considered Chambers so shut up!

Braylon Edwards:  I picked this chump up after his big 1st game with the Jets vs Miami.  I thought Mark Sanchize had found his new fun TD toy.  Well I have to play him now because of injuries and duds below.

Wes Welker:  Someone in my league dropped him when he had his ankle injury.  I picked him up right away.  Welker is crazy good with Brady throwing to him and Moss drawing all the coverage.

Bench: Roy Williams, what a bust. (traded Lendale White for him early this year).  Calvin Johnson (C'mon dude, get back on the field!  your team needs you!!), Anthony Gonzalez (drafted this guy pretty high.  goes down 1st qtr week 1, ouch, still isn't back, but I'm holding out hope he has value late in the year)

The rest:
Robbie Gould.  don't ask me why, but I always draft Gould.  (Well this year I actually drafted Kris Jenkins but chickened out and picked up Gould before the season started).  He's pretty solid and even hit a 50-yarder this year (so shut up stupid columnists who say he doesn't hit 50 yarders!)

Steelers.  I also drafted the giants D and played them a couple weeks while Polamalu was out.  But now he's back and I dropped the Giants.  The Steelers D had their biggest week against the Vikes, stupid Steelers!
