If he fails, it is fairly likely my team fails. Welker is the icing, but I had to lose a great backup in case of injury in Cadillac.
Any suggestions on who I should grab on the waiver wire? Obviously, Brandon Jackson is gone. My RB core looks like this: Foster, Charles, Benson, & Spiller. Do you think I should keep Chester Taylor or get someone like Peyton Hillis, Fred Taylor, & Leon Washington. Anyone I should be on the lookout for?
I think you did a great job. You upgraded your WR core significantly, and only lost a little with the RB swap. Kudos.
Keep Chester Taylor. He would be a great play if Forte goes down. He can catch and run just like Forte.
