    What does "pretty good" mean stat wise?

    OOOOKKKK...MJD or Redman then? And also, why will the Vikings be better than I think? They sucked last year and they didn't really do much to improve...also, AP probably won't make much of a difference in week one...I see the Jags d making Ponder and Toby Gerhart cry by the end of the day..

    It's just my opinion that Minnesota will be better than last year, so take that for what it's worth. They had a disgruntled WR (Percy Harvin) and a rookie QB thrown to the sharks. Their blocking is better n ow, so I think things start falling into place for them. Just too bad for them they play in the NFC North.

    As for MJD or Redman, I'd go MJD. Neither is expected to do a whole lot week-1, but at least with MJD he's healthy. I believe Redman is a little hurt and he isn't a full-time RB to begin with.

    Should I start Vick vs Browns, or Rivers vs Raiders?

    Robinson had 858 yards and 11 TDs last year in 14 games with the Cowboys. That's 10.84 points per game. Considering they signed him after the regular season started and it took him until midseason to really get going, that's very impressive.

    Ogletree already has his breakout performance under his belt and I expect him to continue to build on it. You mention how he was going up against scrub corners. That is correct. However, he will continue to be covered by scrub corners throughout the season.

    To put 10.84 points per week into perspective, here's some players who averaged less:

    Brandon Marshall
    Mike Wallace
    Hakeem Nicks
    Greg Jennings
    Vincent Jackson
    Antonio Brown
    Dwayne Bowe
    Marques Colston
    AJ Green
    Nate Washington
    Stevie Johnson
    Percy Harvin
    DeSean Jackson
    Julio Jones
    Dez Bryant

    The list goes on and on... the fact of the matter is there were only 7 WRs who put up more fantasy points per game than Robinson.

    There is no reason that Ogletree can't put up similar or better numbers than Robinson.

    I picked up Cruz and Robinson in waivers last year. They did wonders for me... Jennings, Nicks, Britt were my initial starters. Adding these two just made it even easier for me.

    Why not take a chance on Ogletree (assuming your bench WRs are weak)?

    Both should have huge games. I can't even name a Raiders corner other than the other Chris Johnson they had (if they still have him).

    Joe Haden is suspended and Sheldon Brown is the only decent Browns CB I know of... and he's pretty washed up.

    I would go with Vick. If he has a huge game, trade him immediately.
