Holy Fuck did my team take a dump today.

Fitz finally shows up but the rest of my team decided to take a week off. Fuck you Romo and Fuck you Witten.

Witten killed me, especially seeing as I had Olsen on my bench. The 9 points I would've gotten from him could've opened up some breathing room for me.

My team did horribly today. I was however able to trade for Fred Jackson who might have a few good games fantasy wise if CJ Spiller is out for a long period of time.

Ugh! I think I'm done with Gates. The week Cook does something and he is rotting on my bench. I'm still up but my opponent has four guys on Monday vs my one.

Definitely didn't expect Romo to post 6 points or Spiller to go down with an injury so early in the game.. benched young and that kicked me in my ass when he ties the game at the end of the 4th. :/ Also waiting on Garcon to come back too... i bet rg3 is waiting for that too

Should I drop Peyton Hillis for Scott Chandler? Brent Celek is my only TE.

Do you guys think I should trade Alex Smith and pick up Andrew Luck off the waiver wire?

Yes. Smith is a 15-20 points QB. It's unlikely he'll get you more/less than that.

Charles was on the bench in my league too. Just an fyi. Mendanhall will be back starting week5. Steelers have a bye week4. On espn only 30% own him right now.

What's everyone's take on Beanie Wells? I feel like he's wasting a spot on my bench. It looks like he's being phase out of the offense. They list him as the starter but Ryan Williams seems to get the bulk of the carries. As dkreegz515 notes, Mendenhall comes back in week 5, should I roll the dice on that and drop Wells?

Hmm...after Kevin Smith did squat yesterday, I wonder if there's any benefits keeping him around now. Both Bell and Leshoure got some time in while Smith put up a nice goose egg in carries and catches...

I traded Michael Turner for Fred Jackson. Okay deal? I figure Turner will get less carries as the season goes on and wanted to get some value for him now.

You definitely made out on that deal. It is clear that the Falcons are a passing team now, and Turner does not make a lot of plays in the passing game. There is always the health concerns with Jackson, but if he plays, he generally puts up some numbers. The other concern, though, is how much of the workload will he split with Spiller. It seems that Spiller's injury is not as serious as they first thought.

I get the first pick in Waviers this week (thanks to Romo). Who should I pick up? I am thinking:

Cardinals D/ST
Tashard Choice
Jake Locker
or Matt Schaub

A lot of people chalked last year up to him not being in shape and prepared for the season after his hold out. Plus, the transition in the quarterback situation. Most were hopeful that this year would at least be decent for him.

I get the first pick in Waviers this week (thanks to Romo). Who should I pick up? I am thinking:

Cardinals D/ST
Tashard Choice
Jake Locker
or Matt Schaub


Whether or not you should invest that opportunity in the Cards D/ST really depends on what you've got there right now. Kinda surprised Schaub in available in your league. How deep is it? I would pass on Choice. Jackson should return this week, and Spiller isn't suppose to miss much time. If you're looking for a possible RB sleeper at this point, take a glance at Powell on the Jets. His part in the offense increases each week, and Greene has really been struggling.

I am considering picking up Locker in my league as my backup. Besides the fact that he has a really, really talented receiving corps, he can pick some yards up with his legs. I love that boost you get when a guy gets 30 yards on the ground.

CJ had over 1,000 yards last year in a TERRIBLE year. I thought he'd bounce back. He's killing me.

Funny with all this CJ talk, somebody just offered me him for Trent Richardson.

I was hoping to get him, but for Alfred Morris instead. :razz:

Wow, I was up 27 points going into this game, but I was out of players, and my opponent had Rodgers and the Seahawk D/ST. I figured that either way it went down, I was probably screwed. But it worked out just perfectly. Rodgers didn't do much, but the D/ST didn't force any turnovers (did have a ton of sacks) or score any TDs. Amazing...

That was one wacky game and one hell of a last play.

NFL is gonna have a massive amount of heat to get the standard refs back into action.

Packers should have won but this makes things interesting with them down 1-2. Both Seattle and Arizona surprised me this past week, both teams have outstanding defenses.

Thanks to GB D's and Lynch not playing as well I scrapped by with 2 wins. I may have to snag Mendanhall if he's coming back. Ive got Jackson and Spiller, maybe I should try to trade Spiller now.

Mendanhall is a great pick-up in any league, if he's available. He will be back eventually, and Redman and Dwyer have been awful. Both of them are averaging less than 3 yards a carry.

May give it a day to see what happens with Reggie Bush and Peyton Hillis, but I'm strongly considering dropping Hillis. Such a bum. Mark Ingram may also be on the chopping block.

I say Barden but that's contingent on nicks or Cruz missing time. Second I would say Hilton, and then Tate. I don't think any of the Seattle receivers are viable.
