What should I do to improve my Fantasy Football team to playoff-caliber?
This is a very deep league so a big performance by any player could vault you to a win. Carson Palmer is not a great QB but I know that in 16 team leagues it's pretty hard to get someone who is. You're also pretty weak at RB and RB is a position that will win you championships every year. Maybe you should try to put in one of your RB instead of Lee Evans or Moss because RBs will score more TDs than WRs.
Obviously you have a good team but it's not an elite team. I think with a few big games by Michael Turner and Carson Palmer you can get in the playoffs. I think you should try to trade Steve Smith too. He's a big name who will get some good players in return. Maybe try to get an upgrade at RB or package a RB for a better QB so you at least have some depth when the Bengals go on bye.
Obviously trading Steve Smith has to be the first thing because Carolina has a piss poor passing game and he's riding the bench behind 3 WRs.
You're totally disrespecting Philip Rivers, he is the BEST passer in the NFL right now. He doesn't have the best team, but he works with Gates and a bunch of nobodys and gets work done. (Vincent Jackson is NOT a stud receiver, just another benefiaciary of Philip Rivers greatness). If were talking SuperBowls than yes, Tom Brady is number 1, but you dont even have Ben Roethlisberger on there and he has more than Manning. My list of QB's would be 1) Tom Brady 2) Philip Rivers 3) Ben Roethlisberger 4) Peyton Manning 5) Drew Brees. FYI Peyton Manning would NOT have a SuperBowl ring if he wasn't playing against Rex Grossman and the Bears that day.
For being a 20 man league be happy with what u have i like it i mean its not great but for 20 guys it is u have solid and stacked defense but for some help id get a new kicker because matt stover was released by the ravens so look elsewhere
Lousaka Polite or Tony Richardson
Calvin Johnson Jr.
Logan Mankins or Brian Waters
Tyson Clabo or Jason Peters
Tamba Hali or Lance Briggs
Brandon Flowers (biased, but I do think he's massively underrated)
rating are way to high man... this year they won't be handing out as high of ratings as they have been. I love Ed Reed but 99 not gonna happen. Peppers as a 99, nope. AP will be mid 90s not high. Brees wil come in around the 97-99 spot along with payton. Suh wi be a low to mid 80s and that is what it should be (he is a rookie ~ awareness will be very low). sharper won't be rated that high, high 80s to low 90s i think. Polamalu will be rated high then him
What do you think of my position by position analysis of the Super Bowl?
I haven't read this much since High School ... (smiling)
You're wise beyond your years ... your parents gave you "Your Baby Can Read" ... Didn't they???

What do you think of these POPULAR BOYS names (FRANCE)?
Lucas - Love it
Mathis - This screams surname at me, bleck.
Mathéo (mah-THAY-oe) - cute, and I think it may be becoming more popular in the US as well
Enzo - sounds like a medication.
Nathan - nice, but I prefer either Nate or Nathaniel
Noah - nice, but I'm getting really sick of it
Raphaël (rah-phah-ELL) - it's okay
Louis - cute, I like the nn Lou
Kylian - sounds very feminine
Ethan - love it!
Hugo - not bad
Théo (THAY-oe) - it's actually probably TAY-oe in France, I'm guessing? It's okay but Mattheo with this as a nickname would be better.
Yanis - bleck no
Gabriel - LOVE it
Thomas / Tom - nice
Evan - very nice
Maxime (max-EEM) - Sounds too much like Maxine... Max or Maxwell or something would be better.
Clément (clay-MONT) - For a French name it's not bad... but if used in the US I don't think it would work very well.
Arthur - eh it's okay
Not bad. I pick my teams on fantasy draft very similar.
OFFENSE- I would give a solid B. Reggie Bush is a beast in the game but not so much in real life. I also use Hester as a #2 reciever because he is very fast and you can get him in the later rounds.
DEFENSE- B Plus. Urlacher is an animal who again I also have as my middle linebacker. He gets a lot of picks.
ST- A-. You can't go wrong with Devin Hester returning punts and kicks, and Janikowski has a very powerful leg.
Overall my man I would give you a B plus.
Jason Peters. He had arguably the best season out of any tackle in football this past season. Mathis is very good, especially in the passing game, but he struggles to stay healthy. I agree that they should sign him (2 year deal), but Peters is without question the best player on that line.
