Hey fellas! So this is my first time playing fantasy football. I've seen how it's done and everything but it feels completely different to make decisions on your own. However, I'm really enjoying this. Anyways, this is the team I made:

QB - Cam Newton, Carson Palmer
RB - Arian Foster, Joique Bell, Andre Brown (inj.)
WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith
TE - Vernon Davis, Jermaine Gresham, Tyler Eifert
W/T - Lance Moore
DEF - Houston
K - Josh Brown

Projected Score Week 1 - 109.00

I know in terms of RB my team is really lacking, now especially since Andre Brown is injured. Although, I do think I am stacked in the receiving department. Prior to Andre Brown's injury the projected score was 112.70 so you can see that his injury took out a decent amount of points.
Now here's my question guys. I'm desperate for another solid runner besides Foster. There is someone in the league who has both LeSean McCoy and Alfred Morris; do you guys think I can entice him to trade one of them without losing too much on my side?

His team looks like this:

QB - Matt Ryan
RB - LeSean McCoy, Alfred Morris, Mark Ingram
WR - Andre Johnson, Mike Wallace, Justin Blackmon, Cordarrelle Patterson
W/T - Mike Williams
TE - Jared Cook, Dwayne Allen
DEF - St. Louis
K - Stephen Gostkowski

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

When Joique Bell is your number two RB, either you're in a 14+ team league, or something went terribly wrong.

Looks like a 12 man roster

Looks like a 12 man rosterDoubt it. By the looks of it, it was Foster, Cam/Fitz, Smith/Davis, Brown/Moore, tossup.

The slashes indicating that their order's are interchangeable.

lol come on guys, give me some credit. It was my first time and it's a 16 team league.

I've never even heard of a 16 team league before. If so, then that draft is actually okay. I wouldn't have carried 3 TE though... 2 is enough.

You think I can get a trade with him or just try to pick up someone? The only options I have left are: Isaac Redman, Michael Bush, Mike Tolbert, Jonathan Franklin, Daniel Thomas, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Isiah Pead, Robert Turbin, Chris Polk, and Mike Leshore.

Its either those choices or if I can pull off a trade.

16 teams is possible?

You better hope for a Reggie Bush injury.. Your RBs are very weak

Moke

Arian Foster can carry the load, but you don't want to rely on that still

Drop one of your 3 TEs and pick up a back.. Actually drop both Bengal TEs

Moke

You don't need 3 TEs, that's true too... lol, you don't even need 2 to be honest.

Sure - you can have more if you want. I was in a 16-teamer a couple of years ago, it wasn't bad.

It's cool if the benches aren't too big.

Told you it was a huge league, Moke.

Hmm instead of dropping them, do you think I can use them for trade bait? Besides the only reason I picked up Eifert was because I heard that he is primed to have a big year.

No one will give you anything for a TE, unless it's Davis (but don't trade him).

I just did a 14 team mock. I liked it. Talent got slim fast, but I still managed to grab a decent team:

QB: Andrew Luck
RBs: TRich, MJD, Vereen, L.Bell
WRs: Garcon, Nicks, Jennings, Sanders, Blackmon
TEs: Sudfeld, Eifert
K: Hauschka
DEF: Atlanta

Wow your mock looks so much better than my team. Guess I'll probably have to wait for L. Bell to come back or pick one of the other Pitt RBs.

I'd take my mock team in a 14 teamer any day. I didn't pay attention to what other people landed, but I'd imagine that I landed one of the most well-rounded, and, most likely, the best overall team.

Lev Bell is a very solid guy to take late in those 12, 14, or 16 team leagues. You stash him on your bench until he gets healthy, and if the rest of your RBs have a late bye week, he'll be healthy enough to start on those off-weeks.

Of course, there's the risk that his injury lingers, or doesn't heal at all, but in the tenth, eleventh round, the upside is too good to pass up.

-sigh- I think I'm going to pick up Mike Tolbert. He may not rack up yards but he is primarily used as a goal line back. So hopefully I can pick up some points from there. It's him, Kendall Hunter, Marcel Reese, Michael Bush, or one of the Pitt RBs.
