Also, get back to me if you have a chance on who you think I could try and get for Cutler.



No problem. I went ahead and held on to Scaife.

They are both going to be really good this year, but I think Rodgers does better. He is very mobile and their O line is blocking great. He has so many weapons now as well.

He is a great TE man. He can be very effective in the passing game, but they'll need to rely on him more for blocking and that's the problem.

For people that don't know Jermichael Finley, they'll know his name in a few weeks, I can assure you.

Finley was an absolute stud at Texas and left early because he wasn't being used enough and had financial problems because of having a lot of kids early on. The guy is a freak. His potential is out of this roof, and he's been catching a lot of passes in pre season. I've read some stuff on him on ROTO WORLD which is by far the best place for updates on fantasy football, but keep that to yourself, because the less people that know about Roto as their main source the better, and I also have heard from a lot of GB fans on another board called PigSkinHeaven that I'm a very active member of which is a football board for all NFL teams. Texans84 is a member there. We have a lot of good fantasy football talks in there, and it helps me a lot. If you'd like I'll send you a link to the board so you can check it out. You'd be a nice member there. Nitro is in there as well, but rarely ever posts.

Desean Jackson is going to have a hell of a year.

Your starting QBs are great, and I love Slaton. Michael Bush could prove to be a valuable commodity as well as Hillis. I am a little leery of Benson but he has some upside and has basically been handed the starting position.

Since you have Ocho Cinco, should I try to trade Cutler for Ocho Cinco and Schaub?
Yes my league has two RB's, two WR's, and a flex. I took out team defense and added a defensive player instead. I hate kickers and team defenses. Next year I'll be taking out the kicker position as well.

When I drafted Rodgers the next best players on the boards were Desean and Ocho so I wanted to make sure my WR's were good because if you struggle with that position it's highly unlikely that you'll find a gem or diamond in the rough as a WR. It happens, but it's highly unlikely. You can always find gems at RB every year once guys start getting hurt. My RB's right now are a little questionable, because most of them are back ups or in committees, but if their starters get hurt all of them have huge potential and should be used quite a bit even as the back ups. I had to take Benson where I did because he was the only for sure starter and he's in a contract year, so he might do well.
