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


Trade him then, someone will give you more than fair value.

Me personally? I might have to start both Foster and Tate this week. I could see them matching the 49ers 250 yards rushing.

We are only 4 weeks in...


Not only is it only 4 weeks into the season, but Foster is still the top scoring RB in non-PPR leagues.

yeah - he is the best RB in my league at the moment. Not sure what else you would want.

I think he wants 25+ a week. Only Tomlinson in 06-07 ever gave that.

Me too! I remember I got him for Rudi Johnson RB (Cin). If I remember correctly Johnson came off a career year in 05 helping Cincy get to the playoffs for the first time in awhile. He got rid of LTD because he had too many Chargers on his team (Rivers, LTD, Gates, and DEF). The problem was Johnson had the nagging hammy that caused him to miss several games in 07. We faced off twice that year and I won both times going undefeated he cursed the day we traded. :lol: The problem was Johnson had the nagging hammy that caused him to miss several games in 07.

I wish I played fantasy back when Faulk was in his prime. The man was an absolute BEAST in fantasy!!!!!!!!!!

OK. i have alex smith and romo, tannehill is on my waiver wire.. who do i drop? smith? also should i make it a priority to get a qb on my waiver order or pick up andre roberts or james jones dropping titus young / kendall wright and starting in a flex position im 1-3 right now so any help wouldbe great. im barely losing these games too, like 10 pt deficits..

we have one qb, one rb, two wrs and a flex which could have a te/rb/wr was thinking i'd pick up andre or james jones and place him in my flex instead of cj spiller.

I guess my problem is that I'm expecting too much. I'm expecting him to make up for the glaring deficiencies in the rest of my roster. Especially at QB.

If it were me I'd probably trash Romo but I know I'm jaded since he has totally crapped all over my team.

Personally I would think that is fair if you are in need of a WR. Jennings will put up some good numbers down the stretch if you are trying for a playoff push.

My opinion would be to do it as the difference in upside between gates and bennett seems marginal.


My trade question.... I have Larry Fitzgerald, and he would give me Trent Richardson.

Or would it be worth it for me to do llarry fitz, and vincent jax for trent richardson and stevie johnson?

hakeem nicks and brian hartline are my other wrs in a start 3 league...

Definitely Smith. If I was looking to build a playoff team, I'd want Smith to lead it, especially if I had the other pieces in place. But in fantasy, Romo has the potential for a lot of big games. Romo's put up three straight duds, but he's the kind of guy who will always get his numbers by the end of the season, so expect some big efforts soon.

I guess my problem is that I'm expecting too much. I'm expecting him to make up for the glaring deficiencies in the rest of my roster. Especially at QB.


Look at it like this. He's the leading RB scorer, and he hasn't even exploded for a huge game, yet. You might get that massive game this week. The Jets are awful.

You've got a legitimate replacement in Bennett. He isn't as talented as Gates, but he gets a ton of redzone looks, and that Giant offense gets a lot of scoring chances. Jennings might be dealing with injuries right now, but he's the most talented receiver in one of the best passing offenses in the league.

Bennett had I think 3 looks last game and I'm not sure a single one was inside the redzone. Plus that was with Nicks out. I like Bennett and I suspect that his looks will improve next game if Barden is also still out with a concussion, but he is still 10th overall in TE targets this season and that's solely in the NFC. Also both Nicks and Barden will be back soon enough and then I would not trust Bennett as the sole TE on my team.

Jennings maybe the most talented wide receiver in a great passing offense, but he has to play to score you points so far in that aspect he has been really shaky. I hope I'm wrong because I own him in 2 leagues, but to me this is already last year repeating itself when Jennings was limited alot by injuries and honestly did not perform that great on a routine basis you could rely on. Plus his contract is up and there's already talk that GB may let him hit the market next year and unless he gets healthy the Packers have a deep enough WR corp that they will simply learn to play without him.

Gates fights the injury issues as well, but Rivers doesn't have the same options to throw to so when he's in he's often a primary target. I say if he can get another decent TE from FA (or already has one) or really, really needs a WR ok do the trade, but otherwise I'd keep Gates & Bennett and be playing whichever has the best matchup each week or maybe counter for a more reliable WR on the other guy's team.

What do your RB look like? Richardson is making a case as a bonafide top 10 RB (especially in PPR). I'd take it and struggle a little at WR (scout the waiver wire/maybe move some RB for WR, even Richardson himself?) depending on who you have at RB.

I don't like Fitz all that much due to his crappy QB situation. Andre Roberts is getting more looks in that offense due to Fitz getting ganged up on.

Eli's interception in the redzone was thrown to Bennett. Also, he threw a touchdown to Bear Pascoe, the other tightend. Eli is targeting tightends a lot in the redzone, and the Giants get up and down the field a lot. Also, we aren't talking about Gates from 4 or 5 years ago. You mentioned the issue yourself: injuries. He's missed games the last three seasons, is already hobbled this year, and has not been very productive when he actually plays (averaging about 40 yards a game with zero scores).

I'm debating between Alfred Morris in the Flex slot or Greg Olsen. Olsen has been on a roll but so has Alfred Morris. I could bench Tony Gonzalez and put Greg Olsen there but the falcons are going against the redskins where Tony could light them up.

Need some advice.

I'm being offered Colston, Arizona D and Patriot K, for Amendola, Alfred Morris, and Ravens K.

The D and K gives me a little better quality but its not blow away quality, but how much better is Colston over Amendola in a 1/2 PPR?

My other WRs are Calvin, Bowe, Jerome Simpson, and my RBs are Benson, Doug Martin, Reggie Bush and Ryan Williams.

Morris and Gonzo, and it aint close. Olsen caught a TD that is the only reason he has a decent game.

Gonzo has caught literally every target this year and his offense is much better

The kicker thing was just a throw in to try to entice me, it's not that big a deal. Basically the Morris - Colston thing is the important part.

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.


Still looking for an opinion on WR.

Morris is beasting right now so ride the hot hand. Counter him Benson or Ryan Williams maybe for Colston, because as it stands right now, Colston is not the #1 target for Brees. Lance Moore is getting all the glory in NO.

Yeah I mean, I don't totally see this as a trade I even need to make. Amendola and Colston are ranked right next to each other in PPR

Remember, this is coming from a newbie but Nicks is still not 100% and Mendenhall (who I also have) is just coming off an injury and may not be 100% for a few games. It seems you are set at QB and Fred Jackson is nothing special so I would just sit and wait till your guys get healthy and put them back in.
