Reader response to last week's High Fives
Ok, for your top 5 biggest risks, I would agree with the majority, but your still forgetting a huge risk that's not getting any attention at all. That risk is Shaun Alexander from the Seattle Seahawks … I was shocked to see that none of you fantasy "experts" had him on your list for biggest risks. I mean, come on, the guy has released statements to the press saying he has no intention of ending his holdout until his demands of a long-term contract are met. I think TO has a better chance of ending his holdout and playing than Alexander does. – Kimp, Galloway, NJ

How could all three of you leave Shaun Alexander off your list of Top 5 safe-bet picks? Over the last four seasons, he has averaged over 1,400 yards rushing, and at least one touchdown per game, while losing less than three fumbles per year. The man has not missed a game in five seasons. Give him some love! – Josh, Florence, KY
