Even if Lynch is suspended I doubt that's going to destroy your fantasy season. You'll probably be able to get a stud for a nice discount. People here usually get all lathered up about that kind of stuff.
I have 2 warning points. How many until I get a prize?

My concern about Lynch is the workload (>900 carries) over the past 3 seasons...I haven't seen an RB have that kind of load and not fall off significantly in the 4th year (most recent example = Arian Foster this year)

It could. I was just saying that this is early. That is all.

Spiller could do it again. Demarco Murray will be a big risk that early. One he plays for the Cowboys and two he's about as injury prone as they get. He was a good value this year but buyer beware next season. Agreed on Lynch. If AP is healthy going into the season I'm taking him every time. Especially if the Vikings get a decent QB(well anyone besides Ponder really).

Definitely Josh Gordon. One off-field misstep away from a year long ban.

You can always tell when the fantasy season is over on Rotoworld because people just start making threads for the heck of it and the mods are too exhausted to merge them.

True, but that's most likely to happen during the offseason, right? Even Justin Blackmon was ok until he got some free time (bye week) and then got busted.

I'll go on a limb and say Le'Veon Bell. Can't put my finger on it but something's telling me he will be 2014's answer to Trich.

I think the way they use him in the passing game will pretty much keep his floor pretty high in PPR leagues.

I actually kind of like Bell this year and I have a decent feeling that your post was tongue-in-cheek, but couldn't the same thing have been said about Richardson after last season.

Except you can trust Pittsburgh and you can't trust Norv Turner when they say they're committed to a RB long-term. Plus, Bell actually has a very good QB and is a much better receiver and pass blocker than T-Rich, who even in Cleveland was not playing on 3rd downs.

QB ---- Russell Wilson, Tom Brady
RB ---- Jamaal Charles, Andre Ellington, Shane Vereen, Joique Bell, Denard Robinson, Knile Davis
WR---- Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin, Golden Tate, Torrey Smith, Josh Gordon

TE----- Julius Thomas, Marcedes Lewis
K ------ Justin Tucker

Yeah, Jamaal Charles really torpedoed my team this year. Epic fail.

People that drafted Ray Rice, CJ Spiller, Trent Richardson, and Doug Martin don't share your sentiment
