Michael Bush @ Denver Broncos


Austin is my highest rated WR, but he's coming off an injury, and playing @ the Jets... so I currently have him benched. I also have Bush benched @ Denver for obvious reasons.
Bench Miles Austin for sure because Revis will lock him down and limit his touches and yards.

I would say the choice you have is between Moss and Bush. Grossman is throwing the ball to Moss so that is a complete wild card and Bush is playing the Broncos who have a potential Defensive ROY in Von Miller. I would probably bench Moss instead of Bush but that is just me.

I was considering Bush over Moss, especially with McFadden coming back from injury.

I could also use some kicker advice. I drafted the Saints Kicker, and now he's out. I added the Falcons kicker, Matt Bryant, he's currently at 42% owned and rising.


Available kickers are:

Ravens kicker, Billy Cundiff. 90% owned and rising.
Jets kicker, Nick Folk. 42% owner and rising.
Saints new kicker, John Kasay. 34% owned and rising.

edit - Standard ESPN league, no PPR.

I would lean towards Austin, Moss and Holmes. I understand the injury concern with Austin but even still I think he's a better bet than Bolden. And I would only put Bush in if something comes out before the game that McFadden is going to be out.

This is a 8 team PPR league.

Starters
QB: Tony Romo
RB: Peyton Hillis
RB: Darren McFadden
Flex (RB/WR/TE): Arian Foster
WR: Roddy White
WR: Reggie Wayne
TE: Dallas Clark
K: S. Gostkowski
D: Saints

Bench
QB: Matt Schaub
RB: BenJarvis Green Ellis
RB: Ladainlian Tomlison
WR: Marques Colston
WR: Santana Moss
TE: Kellen Winslow

Even without Manning, I think Wayne and Clark will be targeted a lot. Moss is risky since it's Grossman and the Skins are playing against a team they usually struggle against. Also, he has just 1 TD against the Giants in their past 6 meetings. Colston is going against Green Bay's nasty defense.

Dont usually ask for advice but I have a tough decision. In my flex I could start either Moreno, Reggie Bush, or Hightower. Who you guys like?

For week 1 I'd probably go Moreno, seems safer. But as the season goes on I could see Hightower and Bush having big roles in their new offenses.

I'm going to be drafting 2 teams at once b/c of technical difficulties. This should be interesting...

I'm going to have my first fantasy football draft coming up. The other leagues I've been in I just had the computer draft so doing it myself I have no idea what strategy to implement.

I hear that going RB and WR for the first four picks is a way to go while going for QB in round 5 or 6. I guess what else I would be conflicted about is where to take a TE and I'm thinking its usually smart to pick a defense and kicker last.

So I'm practicing in a couple of mocks on ESPN right now and in one draft I got Romo/Deangelo Williams/Blount/Roddy/Jennings/Santonio drafting 10th out of 10. Thing is I realized four of those guys have the same bye week, I guess that something I should pay more attention to.

Don't sweat that, just look at it as one week you'll probably lose, but you'll have most of your team together all the other weeks.

I'd lean the same way. It's tough to know his role now that Ingram is there, but week one I think he'll get some decent numbers.
