At first overall pick I have it narrowed down to Rice or Rodgers.

Rodgers simply because he's Rodgers. Most dominant QB in the league right now with the opportunity to repeat or come close to repeating his performance last year. Potential for over 400 pts for the season.

I like Rice because it's a 1PPR league. With 67 receptions and over 700 yards receiving last year its clear he's a fantastic receiving back. I may miss out on Rodgers but I can draft Matt Ryan in a later round. I think he's poised to have a huge season. Also, after my first pick I don't get another until 28 and 29. By that time I'll be scraping the bottom for maybe a tier 3 RB.

What do you guys think? Rice or Rodgers....maybe give Foster a second look?
I would take Rice, only if you think that at pick 28 one of the top 10 QBs is remaining. I would be VERY happy with a combo of Rice and Tony Romo coming back off the end of the second round, for instance.

I'm definitely leaning toward Rice. I'm not sure I like Romo too much though. I have my eye on Matt Ryan toward the 4th round.

Ryan will be long gone by the 4th round of a 14 team league. You are saying that he will be anywhere between the 43rd and the 56th player off the board?

In the 14 team Yahoo mocks I've done so far Matt Ryan has gone 59th, 65th and an unbelievable 127th.

Now that doesnt guarantee that he'll be there in those relative positions in my real draft but if the trends and ADP's I've looked at hold true I should be able to get him at my 4th and 5th round pick. hopefully!

Overall ADP I am seeing him go in the 4th.

Question guys. Right now I have Ryan Williams and Rashad Jennings on my Bench. My starting lineup is good but my bench is horrible.

Should i keep both guys or pick up either, Brian Quick or Santana Moss to replace one of them?

I saw Brian Quick play against the Chiefs last week, and I really liked his performance. He ran sharp routes, looked very seasoned. He is definitely going to replace Lloyd in the flanker role.

The problem is, in my opinion, the system. Jeff Fisher's receivers usually put up modest numbers. The best case scenario is getting a Derek Mason-type season when he was in his prime: maybe 1000 yards receiving and 7 TDs. The caveat, again, is that the Rams offense is frankly not good. They scored a grand total of 16 offensive TDs last year. If you are in a yardage league, I would be higher on Quick.

Backup RBs in good systems are like lottery tickets. If you hit one, you are going to amass a lot of yards backfilling the starters role. In this case, I like Williams more than Jennings, because I think Jones Drew is more of an individual talent, whose production may not be duplicated by his backup. In contrast, I think Beanie Wells is an average running back. Williams upside is greater in my estimation.

Kind of difficult to answer w/o knowing the rest of your roster or scoring system (PPR?) or league type (redraft/keeper/dynasty?) or who else is available on waivers. Jennings or Williams might be great as handcuffs, who knows.

Depends on the rest of your roster. But I would most likely be holding on to Jennings at this point. He may end be the starting RB if MJD continues to hold out.

I would leave Santana on the waiver wire where he belongs.

How about trying to trade Jennings to the MJD owner?
