    Any ideas of who to drop and pick up?

    I think you are set up for success with this team. Bryant, Floyd, and Thomas are solid for you. Its still unsure what will happen with Welker and if he will even be ready for Week 1. That directly affects Sanders. And from what I've seen and read, Caldwell might move into that Welker spot, which would most certainly affect Sanders. Denver is going to throw the ball all over the field, but just keep an eye on that situation.

    Your RB depth isn't the greatest, but should be more than serviceable if they produce. Word out of Packers camp is that Lacy will be more involved in the passing game, and Mike McCarthy wants to run more plays this year.

    Bruce Arians is a pass happy coach, so that should increase Ellington's value a great deal. Hopefully Stephan Taylor and Dwyer don't cut into too much of Ellington's playing time.

    What FA's are available for you?

    Guys I'd look for, Terrence West, Jonathan Grimes, Bryce Brown, Jeremy Hill

    I really like this team. I assume you went Lacy/Dez/Ellington/Floyd/Thomas? If so, very surprised Dez dropped to you in the second and Thomas dropped to you in the fifth. Nice work!

    I'm worried about your RB depth. I don't think I'd feel safe starting any of your guys as bye week fill-ins save for Miller. Maybe Robinson will surprise me, but I'm skeptical of his role in the New Orleans offense.

    WR depth is good, but not great. Sanders is a great option, but I wouldn't feel comfortable relying on Stills for points--big-time boom/bust guy, IMO. Cooks is the wild card--a guy who could either really blow up or simply be this year's Tavon Austin.

    Ertz is an awesome backup TE.

    Gotta imagine you'll be in the playoff hunt with this squad. RB-wise, I think you're in a bit of a worse position than I'd like re: your ability to shake off injuries and deal with byes. Overall a great effort, though.
