naw u got a good team (Rodgers) is a stud and reliable dont let ne one tell u otherwise and jenkins at the bottom was a steal also get rid of some of ur bench its boring (ward, mcgahee ect..)get some guys who may breakout b4 they are gone ur bench is old get some youth
Batlimore's D is perfectly tradeable. Green Bay has reloaded this year, and they have a good schedule. I'm high on Cooley, who I always amazed, seems to slip in the draft for what he provides. He scores on 2 pt conversions, and will throw the ocasional pass as well. Antoine Winfeild, I believe is in a contract year, so roll with that.
I would trade Megatron. You'd think that the Lions have nowhere to go but up, but other teams in there division are more prepaired.
The guys I would try to get in any trade package would be Brandon Jacobs, Ryan Grant, and Ronnie Brown. If he is offered, keep in mind that Steven Jackson is a fantasy killer.
If your league is only starting one TE, then anyone who EVER tells you that you need a backup wants to see you fail.
i see 2 problems, you need to get rid of Aaron Rodgers, he is still an unproven quarterback who should not start, but McNabb is a great reserve who I also drafted, i would draft Drew Brees as your starting quarterback(if possible), secondly you need to draft a second tight end, go after Chris Baker, Zach Miller, or Greg Olsen as the other TE, other than that you have a championship team

I'm high on Aaron Rodgers this year, as he is still developing his upside. He has an exceptional cast around him, great yound wides with Jennings, JOnes, and Nelson, a veteran in Driver, solid TE in Lee, and Ryan Grant at RB is someone who I'm high on this year. Don't let anyone sell you short on any him, look at the schedule.
Your problem is at RB. Westbrook is injured, McGahee may be shot, and Matt Forte is a risky early pick. Who knows if that new offense will click. I like LenDale White, and Leon Washington is like GOLD in my book. Kevin Walter has increased his production every year, so I'm high on him.
Now, you're in an 8 team league, so you might have some trouble moving those old running backs for new blood. You might have to come up with a creative package that would involve one old RB with Forte, and another old RB with McNabb. Then just try fnd a bye week fill in for Rdogers at the last minute, which, in an 8 team league should not be difficult at all.
Also, your IDP's are just average for your size league, but, in your size league you should have noproblem finding what you need in the FA pool.
best of luck homeslice
