12 team league. Standard scoring. Very knowledgeable owners. Competitive league. Big Money on the line... Start QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 D, 1 K

QBs - Romo, Vick.

RBs - Spiller, C. Johnson, E. Lacy, F. Jackson, S. Green.
WRs -- D. Thomas, Garcon, Amendola, Decker, K. Tompkins (love Garcon this year. Handcuffed Amendola. sigh)

TE -- Witten, Cameron (love Witten this year. Cameron as trade bait for a better D if he gets hot)

D - Ravens (last pick, will likely play D of the week a bit here)

K - Dawson (homer pick, but he is money from distance)

Not feeling confident about my RBs. Thoughts??

Your RB's are really good. You handcuffed Spiller. Good job. Lacy and Johnson are standard backs. Lacy has a great opportunity but is perfect as your RB 3. You are fine at the position.

You handcuffed WR's?. That might come back to bite you. So you play Thomas and Decker has a big game? So then you play Decker and Thomas has a big game? Or you play Thomas and Decker together and neither has a good game?

I am not a believer in handcuffing WR's when there are so many out there to choose from. Good luck with trying to figure out which WR to play each week. That will be your biggest obstacle this season.

Thanks James. Not loving Spiller as much since that offense is a mess. Now Steve Johnson is hurt too.

I will roll with Demaryus, Amendola, and Garcon and only play Tomkins and Decker if Amendola or Thomas are hurt. I drafted Amendola to be my WR3 and think he could be a solid WR2. I won't get the jitters on starting Demaryus, ever (absent injuries).

Yeah, I don't typically handcuff WRs. But in Amendola's case, I had to. Kembrell will be solid if Amendola gets hurt - Brady make his a star regardless. I hope.

I'm with James on the RBs... Your RBs look great... Spiller will be top 7 RB regardless of the OFF he just that talented, Johnson will be consistent as usual, Lacy pretty much has the back field to himself with the injury to Harris, not a bad 3RB combo, plus the handcuff...

I respectfully disagree with the WR situation... my opinion you are solid there too... based on my rankings you have 4 top 20 WRs Thomas (3), Decker (14), Garcon (18), Amendola (20)... not sure what more you can ask for in a 12 team league.. just my opinion. ..

every player can be hit or miss and having two WRs from one team is no different its about staying consistent and not making knee jerk reactions... much like the E-Book says when it comes to "one week wonders." ;-)

I'd try and draft Decker away to reduce the concentration risk a little.
