You have a nice team. Carson will do just fine for the one week you need him. Just keep an eye on the waiver wire for a streaking QB if you're uncomfortable with him. Your RBs are your weak suit but someone sitting ontop the trash heap always gets hot and will be available on the waiver wire.
That's how I won our fantasy league last year.. I sat around, waiting for people to drop some players that i could then pick up just as they hit their hot streak.
Michael Bush (OAK RB) and Laurent Robinson (DAL WR), to name two of them.
