This league has become so quiet...here are my Week 1 starters.

QB: Jon Kitna

RB1: Joseph Addai

RB2: Deuce McAllister -- Gets the nod over Thomas Jones, because Jones is coming off a preseason injury, will share time with Leon Washington, and is facing what should be a tough NE defense. Deuce on the other hand matches up with the historically soft Indy run defense.

WR1: Larry Fitzgerald

WR2: Hines Ward

TE: Eric Johnson -- My first shot in the dark at TE. Should be a rollercoaster ride all year. I've always liked Johnson since watching him play at Yale (he tore up my alma mater, Penn, in 1999). A sentimental pick.

K - Jeff Wilkins

DEF - Pittsburgh

Only a few starts that deviate from my draft order, and TE doesn't even count because its such a mess. So far, I can't complain about injuries, because I may have sat Thomas Jones this week even if he was healthy.

I was also able to acquire Addai's new backup, which makes me extra happy that I didn't reach for DeDe Dorsey. It's like getting a 17th round draft pick! :)

QB Tony Romo - first of potential flip flops, may switch to Alex Smith

RB Travis Henry - hopefully Shanny doesn't fake me out :lol:

RB Maurice Jones-Drew - thought about Jamaal Lewis but figure the Steelers D will stuff him so MJD it is

WR Andre Johnson - hope Schaub doesn't get sacked as much as Carr did. If he doesn't it could be a fun year for AJ

WR Lee Evans - may switch to Darrell Jackson if I decide the ARI/SF will be a shootout

TE Jeremy Shockey - TE (shrug #1)

K Neil Rackers - hopefully a few field goals but (shrug #2)

DEF Patriots - If Thomas Jones doesn't start and/or the Jets don't keep it low scoring the Patriots should get a few turnovers

Should be interesting 8)
