    Okay, so, just a week after our draft, I'm already faced with a major trade offer.

    I was offered Tomlinson and Bulger for Peyton Manning and Mojo Drew. Any deal with LT coming back is tempting, so I was wondering what others' take on it would be. How hurt is Manning? How recovered is Bulger (and, more importantly, how healthy is his O-line)? Will Mojo still be splitting time with Taylor this year?

    My other quarterback (it's a two-QB league) is Brett Favre, so I expect that even if I made this deal and Bulger ended up being a stiff, I'd still get some production out of the QB position.

Little late, but I wouldn't touch that trade.

I don't trust LT to stay healthy at all. I know, I know. But RB's in this league go downhill really, really fast. He's been hurt recently and I would be shocked if he survives this season as much as they lean on him. Meanwhile Peyton will be fine. got a solid line protecting him, he'll perform every week.

And Bulger? If his line doesn't get him killed, it still won't matter because St. Louis stinks horribly. He's just not going to put up many points this year.

Unfortunately this season I missed my draft and Yahoo pick for me and I'm wondering if I need an upgrade at QB. Keep in mind we get 6 points for passing touchdowns (and I believe "standard" scoring is 4?) So QBs might be more valuable in this league than "standard" leagues. Anyway, Yahoo drafted me Matt Schaub in the 7th round and Vince Young in the 8th round. Those are both starters, Yahoo didn't pick me a backup and the only guy on free agency that has a remote chance of starting this season (barring injury to a starter somewhere) is Matt Leinart. So I have a backup that isn't a starter.

The good news is since Yahoo picked QBs so late I'm very happy with the rest of my team:
WR Reggie Wayne
WR Braylon Edwards
RB Brian Westbrook
RB Brandon Jacobs
W/T, W/R or BN Players
Roy Williams, Willie Parker, Rashard Mendenhall, Ahman Green, Santana Moss
K Shayne Graham
DEF Chicago and Baltimore

I think most of our other scoring is standard (1 point for 50 yds passing, 1 point for 20 yds rushing or recieving, 6 points for TDs) except this year we added 1 point for each reception which helps me with Wayne/Braylon/Westbrook.

So are the QBs good enough or should I make an upgrade?

I'm not enough of an expert to dissect your team, but I will say that 6 points for a passing touchdown for the QB is the norm, at least on Yahoo. This league doesn't sound any different from most of the other leagues.

I'd be looking for an upgrade.

I'm not entirely sold on Schaub and Vince Young, although he'll pick up some points on the ground, has been far from a TD machine in his time with the team.

Maybe see what sort of value you can get from people by packaging either QB with one of your RBs. I always work on the theory you don't need that much RB depth (two quality starters and a solid backup do me) cos there's always a few guys that surprise each year that you can pick up after the first couple weeks of the season.

Just my 2c.

I pretty much agree. I also would try to trade Santana Moss, but that's just me.
