Is this even a question? Schaub. NYJ are terrible.

Re: Fred Jackson -- What are your options?


Jacquizz Rodgers, Andre Roberts, or I can pick up a free agent. I am trying to fill my flex spot as Vincent Jackson has a bye. I was going to put in Holmes, but he looks like he will be out for a while.

Regarding Schaub, yes, the Jets are terrible, but they are so terrible that I think they will be running most of the game to waste time and to avoid unnecessary interceptions. Look at how "well" Alex Smith did fantasy wise in the blowout this past weekend for example.

Who do the bills play? They talk about them being is a pretty equal timeshare from now on, which is the worst....



Bills play the 49ers

Question is my trade of Gonzo and Crabtree for Mcgahee and Mendenhall really veto worthy?

It got vetoed, my friend really needs a TE and mendenhall is a 63% owned player on ESPN. We are mad

The trade is clearly in your favor. You're getting a really good starting running back that plays on a team that can move the ball up and down the field very well. Mendenhall is definitely gonna get the starting gig back eventually, because Redman has been just been beyond awful.

Is it worth starting Spiller this week?

Really need a 2nd RB and I'm not too confident in Ben Tate.

Also got Daniel Thomas but his touches are almost comepletely diminished by Reggie Bush.

Start Tate. The 49ers had 250 rushing yards against the Jets last week

Conversely, Spiller is playing the 49ers and that's a rough spot.

I want to go with my gut and say Cruz, Colston and Thomas.

Usually after a monster game, guys like Hartline put up a weak stat line. I may eat my words, though.

I actually have a similar problem with most of the same guys. * denotes currently starting.

*Victor Cruz vs. Cle
*Marques Colston vs. SD
*Stevie Johnson @ SF
Hakeem Nicks vs. Cle (likely out)
Brian Hartline @ Cin

Part of me thinks the Bills will be behind all day so they will throw a lot.

No, he's still backing up Foster. The guy means that the Jets are so awful against the run, there will probably be enough fantasy points to go around. They have allowed 20+ fantasy points to opposing backfields in 3 out of 4 of their games this year. Only the Steelers didn't run against them, and the Steelers can't run on anyone. Last week, both Gore and Hunter had double digit fantasy points, so it's definitely possibly for both Foster and Tate to have good games, especially with all of the injury problems the Jets are having.

Trying to figure out who to start in my WR and RB slots. Here's the choices and I need two WR's, two RBs, and one flex:

RB's: Trent Richardson vs NYG, Willis McGahee vs NE, Jackie Battle vs NO
WR's: Wes Welker vs DEN, Mike Wallace vs PHI, Andrew Hawkins vs MIA

I'm leaning on keeping Hawkins out and including Battle in the Flex, but wanted opinions on it.


Also, in a different league, any thoughts on starting Michael Bush (vs JAC) over Jamaal Charles (BAL) or Marshawn Lynch (CAR)?

Ben tate is only averaging like 5 carries a game.

Flacco or Newton?

I'm leaning Flacco vs that weak KC defense.

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

1) Texans are going to run a lot since they will be beating the Jets by 4 TDs.

2) he could still get 50 yards and 2 TDs on 5 carries against the Jets.

Considering Newton is facing Seattle, I'd definitely roll with Flacco.

Looking for help at WR in my one league. Start two, Non-PPR.

Dwayne Bowe (Ravens)
Steve Smith CAR (Seahawks)
Brian Hartline (@Bengals)

I may be overthinking this, but I'm expecting either Smith or Bowe to have a bad game. Baltimore has been giving up more yards in the air so leaning Bowe and Seattle has held every QB they faced under 300 yards so far. Hartline may be a bit of a gamble, but could have a good day in Cincy.

Start Lynch. Charles would be the obvious choice but he's facing the Ravens....

Exactly. If anything, as a Foster owner, I'm a bit concerned. I hope he gets a score early, because I can see this game getting out-of-hand, and Tate carrying the ball in the 2nd half. The Jet offense is in such disarray, and the Texans defense is so good, this is a game where the ToP could be completely lopsided. SF had the ball for almost 37 minutes last week. The Texans could very well have it for 40 this week...

I am so disappointed with my #1 overall pick off foster this year. He's been consistent averaging around 15a game but the top pick in the draft should do more. I'm thinking he should average closer to 20 a game. Maybe putting up low games of 15 and having some 40+ blow. ups along the way
