    WR: Percy, TWilliams, Marvin Jones, James Jones, Amendola
    TE: Graham
    K: Vinatieri
    Def: Saints


    If Foster and Cam return to form, I think I'll be very good. If not, I'm headed towards mediocrity.
    I don't have much experience with leagues that large. Your RB and WR core seem really weak - hate Foster, dislike Harvin, hate your depth but can't really tell whether that's a solid 16-team or not.

    Cam lacks weapons, looked disconcerted, and has a cracked rib. I don't see him returning to form.

    Foster is an injury risk, has been declining in production, will be constantly affected by bad game scripts, has a new O w/ iffy QB. I just don't see him returning to form either, meaning three years ago.

    I don't see Sproles doing anything. He's stuck behind McCoy and is also in decline.

    Your whole team, except Graham, looks below average, but again, being in a 16-team league, I have trouble judging what an average team looks like. I imagine improvement through the waiver wire is also much more difficult because only the dregs are there.

    I'd be curious for a mid-season update.

    He's not an RB2 anymore, but as your 4th best RB? That's pretty freaking nice IMO.
    I guess.

    He's a talented runner no doubt but rumor this summer was he was in danger of getting cut. Whether that was merely motivational speech, I can't say. He doesn't catch any passes. Last year was his career high with 60 yards. He doesn't play in passing situations. This limits his ceiling.

    The Pats however are a good rush team, often good games scripts, and they're uptempo, so he's in a good situation.

    He's probably an excellent RB4 except the scary thing is he's always a fumble from being permanently benched. Also he had very few snaps in the 3rd preseason game. Was that more motivation or is he in the doghouse.
