Same question as the above poster, just wondering about Rashad Jennings or Daryl Richardson.

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

Madden 13 SB Champ in the CAG gentleman's league.

Still bouncing back and forth between Dwyer and Green at my #2 RB spot. I think Dwyer is the better player but Green has a better matchup and might get more touches if/when GB routes the Jags.

I think I would start Johnson and Charles based on matchups. The Chiefs are not good but neither are the Raiders. I would think KC would be able to put up some stats this week.

Thanks man. That's how I have it right now - I just wanted another opinion.

I'd go with an alternative if you have one. Limited in practice + game time decision = even if he does play, he probably will not make an impact and could re-injure himself.

PPR

James Jones (JAC)
Dez Bryant (NYG)

If I could, I'd have Bryant benched until a few minutes before his game and switch at the last minute, but all my guys play at 1pm today. With Nelson potentially out as well, I'm leaning on keeping Jones in.

I agree with you. Especially with Nelson's injury I think I would go Jones over Bryant. Especially with Romo's struggles. Even in good matchups he's not getting the ball to his WR's for them to score points.

After last week I figured I'd bench Richardson just in case his injury got the better of him. Kicking myself for that one right now.

I might lose my game this week because of my kicker. I started Gould over Bryant.

Thank you to the person who told me to start Moore. I need a huge comeback as my opponent will either have the most or second most points this week (He only has San Fran defense left). Floyd did nothing because the Chargers are the Chargers. Dawson (kicker for Browns) did nothing because I am a fool and should grab a kicker with a decent offense.

I've been starting him all year :D though I would have ended up with more points if I had gone ahead with Matthew Stafford.

At least I started Dez in one league. Not that it matters, sure I'm down 11, but I have Akers and Brees yet to play. Barring injury, I'm moving up to 7-1 in my yahoo league.

Of course, I start Vick and he does the worst of all three of my QB's. Even Romo outscored him in the end. His yards/TD's offset the turnovers enough.

Sounds like Reid may bench Vick so it might make choosing a QB next week a little easier.
Shame I'm not in a PPR league. Witten had a big day yardage wise but man he had an assload of catches! He also missed a TD by a 1/2 yard and our leagues yardage bonus by seven!

My Cruz and Reggie bush for Demaryius thomas and Mcfadden?

Bush has got to go, cruz is good but this is an even trade.

I don't know about that deal. You're taking a hit at WR for a slight gain at RB.

I guess maybe it depends on the rest of your roster and how bad you want to ditch Bush.

Peterson Mathews at other RB. Nicks is my other starter.

I know Cruz is very legit but Bush has the 49ers in week 1 of our playoffs and he sucks now.

This guy has C2JK, mcfadden, sproles at RB. Thomas, Wayne, and Harvin at WR.

Before
Peterson Mathews Bush Cruz Nicks
Mcfadden chris johnson Thomas Wayne Sproles....harvin on bench!?!?

Lineups after trade:
Peterson, Mathews, Mcfadden, Nicks, Thomas
Chris johnson, sproles, Cruz, wayne, harvin

I looked at it this way. Sproles and mcfadden are semi even, and so he is basically swapping Thomas for Cruz production wise.

Freeman + Brady = WIN. I'm up by 2 but I still have Akers and the ARI defense going tomorrow. My opponent has the 2nd highest points in the league this week. ;)

Just had my most productive week. D. Martin, M. Lynch and J. Jones came up big for me. D. Moore and the Raiders D pitch in too. My QB and TE are killing me though. If M. Vick gets bench all I have left is J. Flacco. I still can't get over that a turnover prone Vick is still better than J. Flacco.

if Frank Gore can get 12 or more points tonight, I'll have another week where I sweep my leagues. Cant believe Seattle D gave me 0 points and Roddy White gave me 3....

Two huge wins for me this week. Very happy I started Stafford over RGIII in my main league. He got the most points from any player in the NFL in our scoring format. I defeated the 6-1 leader and I'm now 5-3 in both leagues.

Thinking of offering this trade:

Giving - Jay Cutler QB, Martellus Bennett TE
Receiving - Philip Rivers QB, Greg Olsen TE

I hate having Culter as a starter, and he's got some bad matchups coming up. I know Philip Rivers is the AFC version of Jay Cutler, but I think I'd be buying low on him. The trade would upgrade him at TE for a swap of his backup QB.

Do you think I would be able to get this done without swapping TE's? I have Jimmy Graham, but would prefer to keep Bennett if possible to back him up.
