I'd play Dalton, the lions haven't really gave up much in the air this year and Vick has been hit so many times this year he doesn't know his receivers from cornerbacks.

Crappy quarterback week:

Flacco, Kolb, Luck or Alex Smith.

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

I picked up Eli and Bradshaw, but they play @SF this week. Should I start them over Vick (QB) and CJ or Alex Green (RB)?

Guy offered me Mikel LeShoure for Andre Johnson. Pretty sure I'm not gonna do that. I got Alex Green and James Starks on waivers today. Now just need to know who's going to get the most touches.

Desean jackson, Anquan Boldin, or Erick Decker? I have Heyward-Bey but I doubt he'll do any good against Atlanta.
And for Def Steelers against Titans or Bengals against Browns?

I'm playing Dalton over Vick, it's only a matter of time till Vick gets injured or throws even more Interceptions

Need advice on a trade offer: I will be giving away Mikel Leshoure for Antonio Gates and Heyward-Bey.

I already have Tony Gonzalez and Brent Celek but the Eagles and the Falcons have their BYE week next week.

My current list of WR's: James Jones, Denarius Moore, Fitz, Antonio Brown
My list of RB's: Doug Martin, Mikel Leshoure, Trent Richardson, Ryan Matthews, James Starks.

I feel like I should dump Leshoure at some point because Best is coming back but I feel like I can get more.

EDIT: It's a PPR League

So I have to start 2 of these 3 (bye week madness) Stevie Johnson, Heath Miller and Scott Chandler. Johnson has been cold while the 2 TE have been TD machines.

Also would spend $2 to pick up Alex Smith for Josh Freeman on a one week bye replacement for Cam Newton?

Yeah, I'm too WR heavy, and lacking in RB and QB.

I traded:
Marques Colsten (picked up from free agent last week)
Torrey Smith
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Ravens D

Got:
A. Bradshaw
Eli Manning
D. Jackson

Got what I needed to hopefully turn around my 1-4 start. Just not sure if I should start:

Vick vs. Eli
Bradshaw vs. C. Johnson vs. Alex Green

If you just traded for them then uh... yeah, you need to start them. What's the point of trading for players then turning around and sitting them on your bench?

At this point you need to try and trade Vick and Chris Johnson if anyone is dumb enough to take them. Take what you can get and cut your losses.

Heh, nobody will take Johnson at this point, may be able to unload Vick. I'm just wondering if Eli will have trouble against the SF defense. Guess you can't bench your studs though.

Drew Brees, Victor Cruz, and the Bears D have made my life super easy this year, and I pretty much haven't had to worry about making decisions. With the Bears and Saints on the Bye this week I am going to need to really choose well at RB, WR and Flex.

Who to sit between the five?

Torrey Smith
James Jones
Willis Mcgahee
C.J. Spiller
Ryan Matthews

i also have spiller, and im sitting him this week because i don't think he'll do much against a very good ari def. plus, he's still splitting carries with fred jackson.
hard to say who to start between smith and jones. jones might be the better option with jennings out.
i would start mathews over mcgahee because mathews simply because i like mathews.

You can still trade guys like CJ but you need to make someone else a focal point of the deal, then casually add CJ in as filler in a counter offer. Gotta be smooth about it. ;)

Scott Chandler and Joel Dreessen are available TE's on my free agent wire, are either of them worth picking up to start over Dennis Pitta, who hasnt been doing much lately? Waiting for Aaron Hernandez to get back to full strength.

Just about to ask the same question, Chandler has been getting more touches, but is against SF def. Ill give Pitta one more chance against the pitta-ful kc linebackers.

Martin has a great schedule coming up for him to break out and I've never been a huge fan of Andre. Who are your other WR RB

Not knowing your team, I'd say to pass on that. Neither player has been overly impressive, but I wouldn't be surprised if Tampa gives Martin less carries going forward so I'd say Johnson has more potential going forward.

I also received an interesting trade myself. PPR league, a guy is offering me Chris Johnson for Alfred Morris. I've been looking to trade one of my RBs, since I also have Jones-Drew and Trent Richardson (and can only start two).

I guess there's two main thought process I'm looking at right now. 1) Johnson can't suck all year, can he? and 2) While there's been no danger as of yet, one still can't help but wonder when / if Shanny will change his mind on his running backs.

Kenny Britt is terrible. His body is a mess.
Start Sproles and Bradshaw (mccarthy just said whoever is hot is going to be the one with the carries, whether it be green/saines/starks). Receivers I'd play the Johnson's (green bay's secondary is terrible!) and Julio Jones without a doubt.

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