    • Thats a hard one. Im currently starting Rivers over Palmer, and not looking back. I thought Rivers was going to be a stud this year and I got him in the 8th rd.

      Veteran scouts were comparing Forte with AP. Very similar all around. The only issue was that he played at a small school, so he was never going to be a 1st round guy. What we know now though, is that he is almost identical to AP, minus some top end speed, and the injury history. The only question mark is the Bears O-line and their schedule.

      Overall though, I think Rivers has the ability to give you the most points any given week. I think he is going to average 15-18 points this year. Forte is at the will of the o-line, and will likely have a couple of games around 10 or under.

      • Here is my team...

        QB Drew Brees
        RB LT
        RB LJ
        WR Greg Jennings
        WR Steve Smith
        WR Chansi Stuckey, Bobby Engram, Joey Galloway
        TE Chris Cooley
        K Nick Folk

        Bench - Philip Rivers, Pierre Thomas, Sammy Morris, Brandon Jackson, and Rudi Johnson.

        This is also a keeper league so I wanna keep that in mind in trading Philips for Forte. If I get Forte and keep him I'd be giving up my 8th round pick next year (not bad at all)
