Thanks. I had Green last year, but as my WR2, he'd fallen off. In fact, I had Julio and Green. I like him as a #2, just haven't sold myself on him as #1 yet... but i'm getting there.

I've tried that strategy. Green with #6 and then going for Dez with 2nd round (15th) pick... he's never there at 15. Usually best available WR at 15 (in mocks i've done, at least) have always been one or two of Robinson, Marshall, Allen.
I have the 6th pick in my draft, which happens on Labor Day weekend. My strategy is to go WR/WR/RB. Usually that gets me Dez, Marshall/Robinson, and Lacy. So far in mocks, I've opted for Dez over Hopkins and Green. If Romo is out (and he may not be, could be minor injury) Dak seems like a productive backup, better than what they've had in the past.
If Dak happens to start the season opener, does that drop Dez out of top tier WRs? Opt instead for Hopkins or Green? (if Romo was 100%, i rank Dez above them because he's their best weapon, Romo loves to fling it, and the Dallas D is going to be awful, so they'll be flinging it alot)
Dez & Dak, Hopkins & Os, Green & Red Rifle?

I'd take Gore for now but keep an eye on Rawls. If there's any indication his ankle isn't healthy or he'll miss time, drop the other of Treadwell/Williams and pick up Michael.

I see nothing wrong with the trade, nothing worth vetoing. If both teams agree to the terms, no trade should be vetoed unless there is some sort of collusion. I don't see how this trade would fall into anything like that and if I'd made that trade and it had been vetoed, I'd be pretty ticked off.

Tough call, but I'd play it for this year and deal with next year next year. So, I'd keep Green, AP, and Jordy... IF you get to identify your keepers and draft closer to the beginning of the regular season starting. By then you'll know whether or not Jordy is healthy or not. If he's 100% (or close to it) keep him. If not, keep Gronk instead.

I'd also keep Marshall and Allen. Both are being drafted in 2nd round, so it's a value. You'd have the clear #1 WR on two teams. With Stevie Johnson going down, Allen's stock goes up.
No way you keep Carr.

I think it's a pretty good team. Eli should be good enough for four games, he's got a good WR corps and an unsure RB situation. I think Ingram will be huge this year. Johnson was probably your #1 pick, I don't think he'll be as great as everyone things, but he'll be good enough. Floyd my outplay Hilton for your WR2, but it's a good problem to have. Gates, old man time... he's something like eight TDs away from the record for TEs, I expect Rivers to feed him the ball in red zone just so Gates can break that record. Anderson... decent Flex on a team with average (at best) QB play and a stout defense, he'll be a good play on volume alone.
Whether or not your team dominates, I don't know. Maybe some other team(s) in your league has a better roster. Maybe not. But, I think you have a definite shot at winning.

I wouldn't keep any of them so I could draft in the first three rounds, hoping the other teams wouldn't get any/many picks. Load up on rounds 1-3 with the keepers they can't afford to keep.
Did anything you saw, however brief, solidify what you already thought? Change your mind about someone, for better or worse?
Ivory seemed to be running well, he'll definitely get goal line looks, but I think he's going to end up getting lion's share of carries over Yeldon?
Michael Thomas looked pretty darn good, could be a great late round steal.
A-Rob... looked like he'll be just as explosive
The other A-Rob, in Atlanta... will he be a good complement to Julio?
Ingram looked strong, other than that fumble.

I like your team and I think RB is your strength. I wouldn't have gone with Elliot, but he has lots of potential, if that pans out, you're golden.
Lacy may be huge this year. Fairly easy schedule, contract year, lots to prove, return of Jordy and GB passing game, in much better shape. I hope I get him in my main league. People forget, he was a top 6/7 RB two and three years ago. Last year, he was fat and out of shape.
Hyde could also have a huge year, he'll get LOTS of touches in that offense if he stays healthy. I've never been a Kaep fan, if he fails in this offense that's suited to his style of play, he'll never play again. But, if he thrives in this offense, Hyde will too.
