So do I start Ridley (vs. ARI) over Bradshaw (vs. TB)? What about Alex Smith (vs. DET) over Josh Freeman (@NYG)?

I'm thinking of going with Bradshaw and Smith even though Ridley looked way better than Bradshaw did last week.

Can anyone tell me how long does accepting/declining trade take on nfl.com? I made a trade proposal yesterday but I'm not sure how long he can keep me hanging. The league setting are manager veto, 2 day reject time with deadline on Nov. 23. Does this mean he has two days to reject or accept before the trade gets automatically cancel? I feel like my hands are tie with this trade hanging around.


As far as I know, the 2 day window refers to the time the other teams in the league have to approve or reject a trade once it is accepted. I don't think there's a time limit for the other person to respond. I would just cancel the offer and move on after two days.

I going Vick myself. He was bad last weekend but still give me 17 points. If he cuts out the INTs, he would have gotten me 25/26 points. I'm expecting less INT this coming weekend. Plus, they throw a lot even though McCoy is their RB.

I'm having the same debate on defense too. The only D you should be looking at is the Bengals. The Browns was just a mess on offense last week. Their QB couldn't throw. WR couldn't catch. Trent Richardson looked nothing like a top pick RB. The only thing holding me back is that the Bengals D got torched. They don't seem to handle fakes well. Their secondary looks average too. Not much of a pass rush or run D as well. Although this all might be more of facing the Raven offense, then bad D itself. Still, in general, I don't think Bengals have a very good defense. It's between the Patriots D and Bengals D for me.

Stafford is hard to sit in any league but i'm leaning now at benching him in favor of Ryan monday night. I'm honestly regretting drafting him with 12th pick in 12 man league. My roster played out nice and I have Ryan as backup, starter in 3 of my other teams. Love the guy in that system and started having buyers remorse the day after the draft more when he cost me high score $ week 1 lol.

answers this page:
CUT Cleveland D

Vick starts

Ridley over Bradshaw until Pats forgets they can run. He's a beast and they gonna be playing with a lead most weeks.

I'd start Smith over Freeman every single week including the 49ers bye week.

Keep in mind that Mathews is still a big question mark. He didn't practice today, and he has yet to take a hit since he got hurt. I don't know what I am going to do with him this week..

If it makes you feel better, I'm tempted to start RGIII over Stafford in my one league. Only thing holding me back is the fact Rodgers had a good day against San Fran's defense.

I need to start 3 of the following 5:

Adrian Peterson
Stephan Ridley
BJGE
Doug Martin
C.J. Spiller


I'm thinking Adrian Peterson (based on his performance last week, a no-brainer), Stephan Ridley (assuming he will get plenty of runs once the Pats build up a lead on the Cards), and maybe Spiller (hard to ignore his performance from last week but don't expect him to repeat it to that extent).

I also am debating between T. Smith and S.Johnson for my 2nd WR slot.

Thoughts?

I'd have to agree with your thought process. Also, T. Smith as the WR. Ravens seems super impressive on offense so far. Plus, their QB hasnt thrown to the other team yet.

Alfred Morris. SF run D is top notch.

Alshon Jeffery or Brandon Lloyd? I'm leaning toward Jeffery mainly because of Patrick Peterson. Any guess to how much Peterson is going to cover Lloyd?

I'd start AP, Ridley, and maybe Green Ellis since he plays Cleveland.

For my league, have the following options at the Flex spot, standard scoring:

Alfred Morris against the Rams, Demaryius Thomas against the Falcons, Anquan Boldin against the Eagles, or James Jones against the Bears? I could also have one of the WR's start there as I have Greg Jennings expected to sit. Thoughts?

Just completely restarting on that post.

Jamaal Charles, Antonio Brown, or Donald Brown in the flex, normal scoring.

Receivers I have right now playing are Percy Harvin and Brandon Lloyd, with Randall Cobb and Antonio Brown on the bench.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Like I said, he hasn't taken any contact, yet. He only just practiced with pads today, and they held him out of any kind of contact drills. He is clearly going to be a game time decision again, so if you're gonna hold out for him, at least have a secondary option, considering the SD game is at 4.

Thanks to James Jones and his negative yard -.10 points im in a deliema. Start two Cruz, Demarious Thomas, Colston and Lance Moore from New Orleansand Torrey.

Also I have MJD and LeSean McCoy starting. Doug Martin and Darren Sproles on the bench,right decision, right?

I'm sure you're paying attention, but Foster will be a game time decision. Good thing you have Tate.


Vick or Flacco?

Man, that's a tough one. I also have Vick but I benched him for Romo.
If it were me I'd probably go Vick because he's more athletic and may get you some rushing yardage and maybe run one in.

I normally don't need to ask but....

PICK 2:
BenJarvus Green-Ellis [vs. Cle]
Trent Richardson [@ Cin]
Alfred Morris [vs. StL]

I'm thinking BGE & T-Rich due to the possible carousel in Washington.
