Was proposed Cam Newton & Miles Austin for Forte (my team below). I have Eli, who's SUCKED IT UP the last three games, but has a very easy schedule coming up against bad pass defenses. However, they do run the ball a lot too, near the goal line. But then again his next 3 games are GB, Was, NO. I'm 5-5 in 7th place in 14 team league, top 6 go to playoffs. The only reason I"m considering this is because Forte's next 4 games are against SF, Min, SF, and Min again. He didn't do so hot against Houston, and with Cutler out maybe defenses will stack the box a bit more? Anyways, I've thought about this too long and need some other people's input on it. Any help would be appreciated. 14-team league.

QB: Eli, RB: Lynch, WR: Decker, TE: V-Davis, Flex: Forte, Leshoure, Mike Williams, Olsen. D: Jets K: Suisham. Bench: Fitzpatrick, Hillis, Jennings, Danario Alexander, Donald Jones

Stick with Eli, Austin is injury prone and Newton is not the QB he was a year ago. Forte is finally healthy and starting to show it!
Draft: 3QB's 4RB's 5WR's 3TE's 2K 4DL 5LB 4DB.

Start: 1QB 2RB's 2WR's 1TE 1K 2DL 2LB 2DB.

PPR League: 1PPR, 1 pt 10 yds rush/receive, 1pt 10yds pass, 6 pts TD
