*Defense can be rotated throughout the season. I'm not worried about that. I'll probably rotate mine based on weak opponents, which you can probably get a feel for around week 5-6.
*Had to go with the fat kicker since there's also a bonus $50 pool for the best week by the kicker. While not the most accurate kicker these days, Janikowski can still hit from well beyond 50. He had 6 games last year where he had at least 1 50 yarder including two games where he kicked 61 and 64 yards. Kicks beyond 50 and 60 have additional bonus points.
*Gates was available surprisingly late, like round 11 or 12, but I'm sure that has more to do with him being unable to stay healthy and/or probably starting his decline into his early-mid 30s. I really only need one good week from him, and that's Gonz's bye week.
*Stevie Johnson is still a solid #3, although you can argue he isn't worth a thing if his QB sucks. He's still a #1 WR with over 1000 yards and who should see most of the targets from whomever will be his QB. Hartline was also a 1000 yard receiver, but 1/3 of his yards were in two games including one game where he had 253 yards, something I might have overlooked when I picked him late in the draft
. Michael Floyd was a last round pickup. Honestly he'll probably be gone before the season. Trying to keep an eye on any WRs that might have jumped out in the preseason.
