After selecting my read option quarterback in Early Doucet, my team is coming together quite nicely. Larry Fitzgerald was a good pickup simply for his catching ability and red zone effectiveness, but I did not need him on my team due to the type of offense I plan on running. Speed kills and I have plenty of it. With Calais Campbell manning the front to rush the passer, it will be very difficult for whoever Jess' quarterback may be to get off a decent pass.

Today, I need to start working on my defense a little more. That is why I am choosing to select rookie Jamell Fleming. Jess thought he had all of the cover guys snatched up, but he forgot one. Fleming excelled in man coverage at Oklahoma and figures to have a prominent role with the Cardinals in 2012. I can stick him on Fitz and although he can't outman him, he should be able to delay him to give Campbell enough time to record a sack.

That puts my team with the following players: Ryan Williams, Andre Roberts, Calais Campbell, Early Doucet and now Fleming. What do you all think of my option offense? Will they put up points on the board while also holding Jess' lack of a quarterback from making plays? I think so.
