Fantasy Football Week #1: Picks, Sleepers, and Keepers

I figure most of us are drafted and or about to draft, so I started this.

I have a couple question marks for week #1:

Drew Breese* vs Dallas OR Kerry Collins vs. New England

Charles Rogers* vs Green Bay OR David Givens vs. Oakland

Marshall Faulk vs San Fran OR Michael Pittman* vs. Minnesota

I *'ed my picks, but wanted your opinions.

I agree with all your choices except I would start Faulk vs. SF. With Cadillac, Pittman's carries will be very limited; plus, Tampa Bay is likely to be throwing a lot to keep up with Minnesota. Faulk will split carries as well, but SF won't score much, so St. Louis can run the ball a lot.

I agree with you here.

I'd definitely go Rogers (got to play him while he's healthy and Givens is pretty mediocre), go with Faulk just because Pittman won't get many touches, and I'd lean towards Collins mainly because Oakland will throw plenty and New England's probably the most vulnerable early in the year (Indi played them pretty well last year in the opener and New England was very beatable at the beginning of 2003). Plus, I'm not sold on Drew Brees. Not to say Brees was a fluke, but Schottenheimer is not a passing coach and I don't see Brees being a must start.

Here is what i'm working with:

My Team
QB: D. Brees (SD - QB)
WR: M. Harrison (Ind - WR)
WR: N. Burleson (Min - WR)
WR: C. Rogers (Det - WR)
RB: P. Holmes (KC - RB)
RB: T. Barber (NYG - RB)
TE: A. Crumpler (Atl - TE)
W/R: M. Pittman (TB - RB)
K: J. Reed (Pit - K) (Yahoo Auto-Pick....not my choice.)
DEF: Philadelphia (Phi - DEF)

BN: T. Bell (Den - RB) (Yahoo Auto-Pick....not my choice)
BN: K. Collins (Oak - QB)
BN: K. McCardell (SD - WR)
BN: M. Faulk (StL - RB)
BN: D. Givens (NE - WR)
BN: D. Graham (NE - TE)
BN: D. Stallworth (NO - WR)
BN: S. Janikowski (Oak - K)

I think Collins will rack up a ton of points.....or suck. I think Breese will have another great year. I grabbed Faulk in the 11th round as insurance. I think he'll put up some decent numbers (better than ppl are expecting), but I don't want to have to rely on him week in and week out.

WR are definately my weakness. I'm hoping Tiki keeps producing and the NYG find better/more consistant offense this year.

I would definitely go with LaMont Jordan. He's ready for a breakout year. Good runner and pass catcher. He'll give you points.

I'd say your RBs and WRs look weak. No clear #1 RB or WR in that group.

My team looks ok.

QB C. Palmer
WR J. Walker
WR L. Coles
WR Roy Williams
RB J. Lewis
RB D. McAllister
TE T. Gonzalez
K. Vinatieri
DEF Tampa Bay

BN C. Williams
BN T. Brady
BN C. Benson
BN B. Leftwich
BN Ma. Clayton
BN K Barlow.


Biggest question is who to start at QB.

Palmer vs Cleveland (my pick so far)
Brady vs. Oakland
Leftwich vs. Seattle, (he is stuck on the bench)

Still need to trade a QB for a WR

Need a true starting RB and you could do damage.

Pick up a better D to.

QBs and WR rock though,plus the 4th best kicker.
