I made either a brilliant trade or just gave up a great player for nothing. The other guy accepted the Palmer for Alexander move. So now my running backs consist of Larry Johnson, Shaun Alexander, Thomas Jones and Lawrence Maroney. Not too bad, eh? Alexander hopes to play this week, which would rock so very very much. That means Iâ€™ll have a potential starting lineup of Phillip Rivers at QB, Shaun Alexander and Larry Johnson at RB, Reggie Wayne and either Muhsin Muhammad or possibly Larry Fitzgerald (he might be back from his hamstring injury) at WR, Marques Colston at TE (bless Yahoo for putting him at tight end!) and probably Thomas Jones at the â€œflexâ€ spot. My defense just got a little shaky though, with San Diego likely being out both their outside linebackers for 4 weeks. So I nabbed the Vikings defense as a little insurance. Too bad they play the Patriots this week.
Either way, 2-3 weeks from now when Seattle and Kansas City hopefully have their offenses in high gear, I should have a juggernaut of scoring. I wish it could come sooner, as I play the 1st place team this week. Hopefully McNabb can actually not score 5,000 fantasy points in the next Eagles collapse.
