Unlike last year where I had injuries to 4 of my starters in the first 2 weeks (I believe steven jackson, jamaal charles, Andre Johnson, and someone else)... everyone healthy so far (fingers crossed) this year.

Ryan has the potential this year with the anticipated performance decline of Michael Turner to be a top 3 QB.  I think you have a pretty balanced team now, and ultimately the trade is Ryan and Charles for Rice as you already have a top defense and would start Finley most weeks.  I don't believe in keeping a backup defense.

Most weeks under typical scoring systems (especially non-PPR) Ryan and Charles will combine for more points than Rice and Luck.  I'd check waivers and look for Alfred Morris, CJ Spiller and even Shonn Greene to provide you with more RB options.

Woops I left out a BN spot where I DO have a back up D filling it: Buffalo Bills.

Thanks, I was going to pick up Spiller but I was number 9/10 on waiver priority and thus denied! There really arent many quality RBs left in this league.  I find myself extremely adverse to picking up any RB from washington, Im scared from last year.

Someone dropped Cutler so im going to pick him up and drop Luck, although Im hesitant to do that because damn I want to believe in Luck.  Im feeling the same about Greg Little but damn Weeden sucks balls.  I want to drop him for Amendola (which will probably give me a good back up during bye weeks since this is a PPR league).

Amendola is a good option but I'd hold on to Little for another week to see if Weeden works things out or if the Browns go back to McCoy.  Little is their #1 and if you're in a PPR he should be a decent WR3 and potentially a WR2.  Cutler is great, I have him on one of my teams along with RG3.  He's worth stashing for bye weeks and better matchups

Had bad week last week but this is looking like a good week!  I was unable to make any pick ups last week because I was so high on the waiver list but thank god because my team is fine so far... although I still kind of wanted Amendola (someone else picked him up).

I have Leshoure, Andre Brown, and Jamaal Charles starting in my other league... KILLING IT!

    • The entire purpose of rules are to make things fair... Someone breaching a rule could literally make it unfair. 
    • A meh, but fairly satisfactory 84 considering the break. I had like 9-10 pars or better. got lucky on more than a few scrambles, but a lot of doubles+. My biggest lesson learned after a long break: don't try to go after it.  it cost me a bunch of penalties trying to rope a few out there.  Aviara's beautiful tho, almost disneyland like.  Watching LPGA highlights there on youtube made us all sad about ourselves.
    • So.....you're sayin' it's physically mental......or mentally physical or is it feel vs mechanical or is it a sport or a hobby all I know is I want to golf that ball with my fairway metal while sporting my cargo shorts and rocking my driving hat while hitting a golf shot and being a great driver of the golf ball while someone mumbles 'shot' after a good golf strike of the golf ball and driving the golf cart and drinking the golf bloody mary
    • I don't know if golf is more mental than physical or vice versa.  But I am convinced that a different mental approach/focus can help many problems in the game that many, if not most, instructors view as purely physical/swing related issues.  A correct mental picture/intent can help golfers improve, and combining a mental approach with physical swing training can greatly accelerate improvement.      Take an over the top swing as an example.  With the pure physical approach, the instructor watches the player hit a few balls and dissects the swing into component parts.  The instructor gives a bunch of physical causes:  you take the club too inside or outside, you have too much weight on the front or back foot, you should be supinating your wrist or pronating it, your hips are firing too soon or too late.  The instructor has the player work on a different take away for the first week.  When that gets better, they move onto the next problem and try to fix it.  Two months late, the player is hitting it much better on the range, but still frequently comes over the top on the course.  The more the student focuses on the ball, the more likely a OTT swing will show up.     The other approach:  the instructor watches the student take some practice swings and then hit some balls.  The instructor notices that the student rarely comes over the top for a practice swing but does so on most, but not all swings with a ball.  Okay, she asks, why is the player sometimes coming over the top?  Why is it worse when a ball is present?  The instructor asks what the player is focused on.  The ball of course.  I want to hit the ball, make sure the club head makes good contact.  The instructor then changes the focus of the player from hitting the ball to swinging through the ball to a target.  The instructor explains that OTT is the default when the ball is the target.  She gives some drills to improve focus away from the ball:  the player hits whiffle balls to warm up, the player has to verbally identify the target and intermediary target and rehearse swinging out to the target, the instructor gives the student a mental image of swinging through the ball instead of hitting at the ball.  After a week, the over the top move shows up less often and is not as pronounced.  The instructor continues to have the student work on the mental side of swinging to the target and combines that with swing changes.     In the physical only approach, the physical changes will be harder to adopt because the physical swing is fighting against the students mental image of what is needed and the student's primary focus.  When the mental and physical are aligned, progress will be faster.  Another way to say it:  the mind directs the body. The mind is telling the body to swing one way when the ball is the target and a different way when swinging to the pin.      In any case, an instructor who ignores the student's thoughts is short changing the student by focusing only on the physical.  There's an old saying, if the only tool you have is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail.  If the instructor only deals with physical swing changes, every problem looks like a physical problem.     On the course, which is more important, the physical or the mental?  I don't know, but it is important that the mental image/goal/focus aids the physical side instead of fighting against it.
