Lynch's back-up is an unknown rookie since a-train is now hurt. Going against a terrible Dolphins run game he may be an option. Otherwise I would go with Smith over galloway. But either way I would consider dropping Henry and picking up Lynch's B-U, if nothing else, so no one uses him against you.

Kolby Smith is running against a VERY weak Denver rush defense so you should definitely start him at flex.

I wouldnt mess around with the buffalo backs...too much of a gamble and you have 3 SOLID plays at RB the way it is. (grant vs the raiders and sjax is a freaking stud)

you wouldnt put galloway in over smith? i am hesitant to take out galloway because of the numbers he has been putting up as of late, but I agree Smith is a very good start against a weak denver d.

I vote Jags DEF coming off a tough loss, besides I think Wash. is going to be motivated against Chi.

I would take Kolby Smith in the flex. It's a risky move since he still is untested but he gets the rock, should get 70-80 yards at least against a poor run defense. Galloway would be my back up. If you don't like those getting Lynch's BU, Fred Jackson isn't a slouch (140 all purpose yds and a 4.6 avg. per carry this year) but that will be a gametime decison if you can afford to wait.

I would stick with Smith. Less risk and Galloway isnt a lock either..."success as of late" doesn't give me the warm fuzzies as does a featured back vs a crap run D.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
