Need some advice.

Trade that was proposed to me:
Cam Newton and Fred Jackson (other team) for Hakeem Nicks and Rashard Mendenhall (my team)

Here is my current roster:
QB-Rober Griffin III, Matthew Stafford
WR- Brandon Marshall, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, Hakeem Nicks
RB- LeSean McCoy, Steven Jackson, Ben Tate, Rashard Mendenhall, BenJarvus Green-Ellis
TE- Brent Celek, Jason Witten
K- Shayne Graham
DEF- Houston

Roster Spots are QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, WR/RB, K, DEF


I would decline that with your current roster.

Given that you have both RGIII AND Stafford, I wouldnt do that deal at all.

Standard 10 team ESPN non-ppr.

Two questions, but first my roster:


QB Tom Brady

RB Ahmad Bradshaw, Alfred Morris, BenJarvis Green-Ellis, Andre Brown, Jacquizz Rodgers, Jackie Battle

WR Larry Fitz, A.J. Green, Wes Welker, Torrey Smith, Jerome Simpson

TE Martellus Bennett

D/ST Cardinals

K Greg Zuerlein


I'm interested in trading a package of Larry Fitz or Wes Welker and Green-Ellis for an upgrade at RB. Who could I possibly get? I have a feeling that I will get lowballed because of the slow starts for the receivers.

Second, I dropped Kendall Hunter this morning to pick up Jackie Battle. I was torn between him or Jaquizz Rodgers. The 6 RB limit stops me from dropping someone else (it would be Andre Brown but I want to make sure Bradshaw is completely healthy first). Now I think the guy I work with is going to pick up Hunter. Should I have kept Hunter or do you think Rodgers has more of a chance with Turner's injury history?

I know it's splitting hairs over bench guys that make no difference now, but I'm looking at potential to take over late in the year. (One other thing, RBs are hoarded in this league, as if you couldn't tell.)

And now I present Kate Upton doing the Cat Daddy:

Arizona it is then.

Now for the rest of my roster.

My waiver claim went thru for Dalton. Should I start him vs. Miami or Vick @ Pittsburgh?

RB: Foster, Sproles, BJGE, Williams, Tate
WR: Fitz, Welker, D.Thomas(FLEX), Hartline
TE: Cook (Witten on bye)
K: Bryant

I think the rest of my lineup pretty much sets itself. Gotta start Fitz and Welker at WR. Will probably start D.Thomas at FLEX, and I only have one kicker & TE available this week.

Not the start I was looking for out of my D. Bradford goes right down the field for a score in about 4 plays.

EDIT: Thanks a bunch Kolb for missing a wide open FITZ in the endzone!

Start Vick vs. Pittsburgh (are you fucking kidding me? you are seriously asking this question?)

Start Dalton vs. the koosh ball Miami Dolphins.

Haha, I just picked up the Ram's kicker off waivers the other day. He already has more points than the only other member of my team playing tonight, Fitzgerald :cry:

EDIT: Thank god Larry didn't let it stay like that for long :D

A very minor blip on the radar. As usual, Foster is on the injury report. He practiced in full and is probable for the game against the Jets. The only reason I mention it is because it's a MNF game.

I said earlier I would probably start both Foster and Tate, now I almost have to. The only other guy I have on my roster is Johnathon Stewart who isn't on bye. Yuck.

Yeah. It's bad enough when you got a back in a split backfield. Having a QB steal yards and TD from him is the killer.

Me too thought the guy was crazy. Well thank goodness for that 44 yarder on the second play or it would have been a total waste. Anyway, officially it's a separated shoulder he'll be out 6-8 weeks, so dropping him now.

I've got 4 players on bye this week so should I play Rashard Mendenhall or pick someone off waivers who might could get me 7-8 points because that's all that's left on the waivers for RB and WR. I was able to snatch Hixon (Giants) since Hakeem will be out. My only other player on my bench who I could put in is back up Falcon RB Rogers.

Sorry, another question. I am trying to trade Antonio Gates for Greg Jennings since I have Martellus Bennett as my backup TE but it looks like the trade may not go through until Monday. Gates is playing NO and Bennett is playing Philly. If I still have both come Sun, which should I start? Yahoo projects 13 for Gates and 8 for Bennett. Thx from a newbie.

Projections mean nothing. Start Gates, in fact, if you trade him you should do better than Jennings.

OK got a few tricky ones...:

1.) Which TE?: Vernon Davis or Rob Gronk? (Yes, i actually have both of them lol)

2.) Got to start three of these guys:
- Brandon Marshall
- Donald Brown
- Armond Binns? (Apparently he is the Bengals 2nd receiver)
- Nate Washington
- Pick up Jerome Simpson?

3). Matt Schaub or Eli Manning (Im leaning heavily towards Manning but if you can talk me out of it, go for it lol)

Definitely go with Eli over Schaub. It's more than likely than the Texans are going to blow the Jets out, and they will probably abandon the passing game in the 2nd half, especially considering that they have two great running backs to share the load. The Browns are 0-4, but they have have played 4 really close games. They will probably hang around, and Eli will be throwing the ball all over the place.

Posted 07 October 2012 - 01:52 PM

Now that my awesome team is healthy I need some help:

1. R. Fitzpatrick (at SF) or A. Smith (vs. BUF)?

Smith is projected for more points but Fitzpatrick will be throwing all freaking day... but against the SF defense who are really good...

2. Need to start 2 of 3 WRs:

J. Jones (at WAS)
M. Wallace (vs. PHI)
D. Bowe (vs. BAL)

I'm leaning towards sitting Bowe because of the match-up .

3. Need to start 3 of 5 RBs:

C. Johnson (at MIN)
M. Forte (at JAX)
A. Bradshaw (vs. CLE)
S. Ridley (vs. DEN)
A. Brown (vs. CLE)

I really have no idea what to do about my RB situation.

Thoughts?

I have been plagued with inconsistent RBs my entire FF career! I'm used to it by now but this year I just have an abundance of them. Who do you guys think the best options are outta

Charles vs Bal
Turner vs Was
Morris vs Atl
Benson vs Ind

I have them ranked like that but I'm worried all around.

Also, which TE do you go with? Pitta vs KC or Chandler vs SF
