I love my team.  I'm a little worried about depth, but I love the first 5 picks.  I had an eye on several TE's who were all taken right before I picked, so I went boom or bust with Shockey.  That's my biggest concern so far.

Off to a great start...  >:(

Roy Williams Breaks Collarbone, Likely Out 6-8 Weeks

EDIT:  Story updated... conflicting sources one saying x-rays are negative, the other saying it's definitely broken.  Go figure.

Maybe no break...

Still though... eff.

I take it Shockey is no longer your biggest concern?    :-X

Why would a tight end who is hurt every game and hasn't been good for 5 years concern his owner?

I'm still concerned about Shockey.  I'm slightly less concerned about Williams than I was two hours ago:

The initial fears were that Williams suffered a more serious injury after colliding with cornerback Orlando Scandrick. But Williams confirmed via text message that X-rays were negative.

Depending on how bruised up he is I could still see him missing games... and it doesn't help losing practice time with Romo. 

For the record, I think Shockey finally learns to stay healthy for one year.   :-X

I know it's a reach... I was looking for Jason Witten or Tony Gonzalez in the 5th but both were drafted a few picks before, so I went Roy Williams...

I accidentally drafted Roy Williams over Calvin Johnson last year and now I've sworn off Roy Williams for life.

Yeah with the trade and the Lions sucking Williams was a tough one last year.  My hope was that he'd step in and be TO now that TO's gone elsewhere and if he even comes close he's great value in the 5th.  It might yet happen, but a nasty injury early in the year worries me.

It seems like the Cowboys did absolutely nothing with Roy Williams once they got him last year.  I couldn't believe it.  Until I see otherwise, I'm going to assume that Patrick Crayton and Miles Austin will be used as much as Roy Williams.  Not to mention Jason Witten is in the mix.

I have to think that the whole point of getting Williams here was that they knew they were moving on without TO.  Why they used him so little is beyond me.  This year he's low risk / high reward when you figure he's the #1 WR (theoretically) on a Cowboys team that should be strong offensively.  Luckily the report now is that it's just a bruise, and he might miss one preseason game and then be back in action.

In round 5, it was either him or Chad Johnson... we'll see if I made the right call eventually.

Another stellar start to my fantasy football season for my #2 WR:

Quote
The season's first ruinous injury may belong to Indianapolis receiver Anthony Gonzalez(notes). He went down without contact in the first quarter against the Jaguars -- just took a single step, then hit the turf. Gonzalez couldn't put any weight on his right leg

Gosh, that sounds strangely familiar.  Nate Burleson circa 2008.  Running down the field, no contact, can't put any weight on his leg.  Burleson = torn ACL = gone for season.  Gonzalez = ?

(not that it mattered by the looks of things, but still)

I am playing against Adrian Peterson, Drew Brees and the Eagles D this week in another league...that is an ugly way to start the season.

Drew Brees though has been lighting Brent up all day >:D

How does someone in your league have Brees and Peterson?  Is it a 4-team league?   ???
