Marshawn Lynch v. CLE, Fred Jackson v. CLE, or Ray Rice v. CIN? I also have Bradshaw v. OAK, but I'm saving him for the day Jacobs gets hurt.

And how the hell does MJD only get 6 carries in a 37-17 blowout? I was looking at the box score the whole day happy as hell, then I come home to find out he gave me a whopping 10 points.

How would you rank these WRs going forward:
Manningham, Garcon, Britt, Hixon, Knox, Schilens, Andre Caldwell, Nicks

How about these TEs?
Z Miller, Winslow, Finley

All have concerns and potential, but I'll probably need to drop one

(Before anyone makes a crack about 3 TEs, I had someone draft for me, and ended up with 3, plus we can start 2; and we can only add/drop players one two specific Saturdays, starting with this one.)

Tes
1. Z Miller
2. Finley
3. Winslow

Winslow play for crap team that cant throw ball good. TB passing game horrendius.
Finley on good passing team, going gto get you some pts.
MIller one of great uop and comingers at the TE position in league. If get ball on Sunday vs Giants (and good chance he will get 7 passes or more thorw to him)) he going to come up big for you.
Predicitions
Winslow 3 catch, 34 yards, 0 tds
Miller 5 catches, 83 yards, 1 tds
finley 4 catche, 67 yards, 0 or 1 td

Wrs
1. Garcon (dont know how to make design on c in name)
2. knoc
3. Schilens
4. maninggam
5. Britt
6. Caldwell
7. nicks
8. Nixon

J Knox up and comer Wr, get many chance with J Cutler throwing ball aroudn the field. Garc on play with P Manning so you know he getting channces. Manninghm play with other Manning so less pases he get plus play in outside staisdum in cold wearther. Britt numbers go up and stay okay if Tennensee keep playing bad cause them going to throw a lot but if Vi Young play qb then Britt not going to get as many pases. Caldwell have all sorts of other Wrs to battle with- coles, ocochcinco and Coles and Chris Henry thats al ot.
Nicks is rookie and Hixon injured so nothing much expect there
