by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) The first two weeks of the season are in the books and we are slowly gaining some clarity to situations throughout the league.  While the elite are pretty obvious, there are some intriguing names who are proving to be viable options (like Alex Smith).  There are also some who we thought would be trustworthy who are quickly proving to be unusable in shallower formats (like Russell Wilson).  Who should we (read more...)
