Quite frankly, you've assembled a pretty good team, considering your League's Roster Limitations. Lamar Miller is set to have an enormous year & LeSean is going to flourish in Chip's system. Megatron & Green is a MUST, I have to disagree with Matt's assessment on the primacy of options in a passing attack when it comes to Dalton. Matt Ryan has some decent recievers, notably Roddy but he feeds Julio first and most often. QBs have favorite targets and they're usually far more valuable than the rest, couple this with the fact that Dalton loves to throw and is very efficient with the ball when it comes to Green's targets and he's a far more reliable option than Mike Wallace. To be frank, Wallace was always there for the speed route, the home run, he's not an every possession receiver and I don't trust Tannehill in the least. Do NOT give up AJ Green.

I don't trust Kaep either though but there's a bright side on that note, by Week 2 or 3 you'll be able to see if he remains a dual threat. If he's still able to rack up points on the ground and through the air then you'll either keep him or his trade value will skyrocket. In the meantime, Dalton is a safe pick in a division where they may very well win out, they're young, confident, and full of talent. Don't be hasty with a trade for QB, you have a great prospect that everyone is high on, his value will not evaporate if you wait to see how the first few weeks play out.

Chris Givens, Ballard, & Meyers are all diamonds in the rough with the potential to be major players.
