Hmmm, I'm a little cautious of starting Mendenhall with Charlie Batch as QB. Haven't seen too much of the Bucs, but was surprised they bottled up DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart.

I don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing that none of my players were listed on either the + or - listings?????

It means you should expect to perform as they would on average (so a highly drafted RB would perform well, and a low WR would not).

Should I start TB Mike Williams or Donald Driver?

Bill, I'm confused with what you said in the article. You said, " If you get an offer containing Jahvid Best, Hakeem Nicks or -- yes -- Michael Vick for any of these guys, just click the reject button and be patient. They're going to break out pretty soon." You then listed the guys you were defending: Flacco, Pierre Thomas, Marion Barber, Steve Smith, Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, Tony Gonzale. Now everyone in their right mind would give up pierre thomas, or marion barber for jahvid best. And Calvin, Steve Smith, and Moss, are really the only guys you listed that are more valuable then best and nicks at this point. So when you suggested that we should reject offers containing jahvid best and nicks for guys like marion barber, pierre thomas, joe flacco, and tony gonzalez, did you mean it? Or were you just trying to make a general statement about jumping to conclusions and selling low or buying high?
