Trying to figure out my TE situation for the week. I have Scott Chandler presently, but debating whether to start him or drop him for somebody that plays Sunday. That way, if Aaron Hernandez is activated, I can still swap him in.


I'm in the same situation. It seems like a no win situation. If you start Chandler, chances are he gets you nothing and Hernandez plays and has the game of his life. If you wait, Hernandez doesn't play and you're left with a donut on the board.

This trade was just offered to me...

I get:
Ben Roethlesberger
Steven Jackson

I send:
RGIII
Jonathan Dwyer

I've been using Stafford every week over RGIII and been getting more points. My other RB's are...
LeSean McCoy
Marcel Reece
Jonathan Stewart
James Starks

I'm most likely going to start Stafford every week baring injury so RGIII has been on the bench.

Don't do it. Ben is on the shelf for awhile, I thought? Steven Jackson isn't that good. You could pick I'm off waivers in a couple of leagues I was in.

You can likely move RGIII for someone better.

Hmm, FJax is out, CJ Spiller in prime time. Let's hope he puts on his dancing shoes and waltzes all over Miami tonight!

Want some feedback..roll with Ridley at flex or go with Cobb?

RB starters are Gore and Spiller right now. Gore's matchup is a bit of a concern, but he's been solid this season so I think I'll stay put with him.

I need a 3rd WR, do I go with Floyd, James Jones, or DeSean Jackson?

I like Floyd. With Alexander in the lineup now along with Meachem, I think Rivers can really let it go. I'm not really certain what Foles can do yet, but Jackson could be a high risk high reward play too as I suspect Foles might be throwing it a bunch.

Reese or Sproles as a RB2 this week? I'm leaning towards Reese. He's expected to see a lot of action and it would give me a chance to see how well Sproles plays coming off the injury. The only bad part is I hate to pass up the matchup. With his speed Sproles could easily take one to the house.

I dropped Vick for Foles, Dwyer for Reese, and the AZ D for CIN this week. Here's my current plans for my roster... I'd also sort of like to start Hartline in my lineup but it's tough to start him over Fitz, Welker, or Thomas.

WEEK 11:
QB: FREEMAN, Foles, Romo
RB: FOSTER, REESE, Sproles, Law Firm, Ben Tate
WR: WELKER, D.THOMAS, Hartline, Shorts
FLEX: FITZ
TE: WITTEN
K: BRYANT
D: CIN

I'd be starting Cobb, I feel like Pats/Colts could turn into a pass battle leaving Ridley out. I have him starting in a league as well but not confident in it.

I need a 3rd WR, do I go with Floyd, James Jones, or DeSean Jackson?


I'd start Floyd, dont trust Foles to do enough to make DeSean a viable start just yet.


Reese or Sproles as a RB2 this week? I'm leaning towards Reese. He's expected to see a lot of action and it would give me a chance to see how well Sproles plays coming off the injury. The only bad part is I hate to pass up the matchup. With his speed Sproles could easily take one to the house.

RB: FOSTER, REESE, Sproles, Law Firm, Ben Tate
WR: WELKER, D.THOMAS, Hartline, Shorts

I'm skeptical of Sproles this week even with the matchup...play Reese.

Trade in our league that just got accepted

Team A gets:
Trent Richardson
Jermichael Finley

Team B gets:
Jason Witten
Michael Turner

I wouldn't say collusion, but this is a definitely questionable trade.

I think that trade is fair. Finley has value only in name alone (he isn't even top 25 this year in standard leagues), so the trade is really Richardson for Witten and Turner. Team A downgrades from Richardson to Turner, but upgrades his TE to Witten, who is a top 10 TE, despite only catching one TD this season.

I'd probably start Peyton unless you need all the points you can get. I'd say Peyton has a higher point floor, but Ryan has a higher point ceiling. If Ryan does outscore Peyton though, it probably won't be by much.

Goo! That's a tough one. I don't think you can go wrong either way but I might give the slight edge to San Fran. Bears will be starting Campbell, have a bad offensive line, and are on the road.

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

PPR league, deciding on my last receiver. James Jones or Julio Jones (if active). Julio is testing out his ankle, but is currently still ruled as Questionable. It's more a matter of how effective he could possibly be if he plays with the injury.

Currently have James in the lineup, if only because I'm afraid the yahoo servers shit the bed again this week.

start two:

eric decker
wes welker
jordy nelson


I'd say Jordy Nelson is the one definite. For Welker and Decker, it depends. If it's PPR, I'd stick with Welker, otherwise I'd probably take the chance on Decker.

I think Ivory is your best bet now that Sproles is out.

Should I go with Donald Brown or Darrius Heyward-Bey (apparently active today) for my flex?

I didn't know Sproles is not playing this week, that's good news for me!

Tough one I think Brown will find the end zone at least once today so I would play him. Plus, he has the best opportunity to put up numbers. Bey is risky due the injury but NOLA has a horrible D.

I knew I should have started Shorts in place of Bowe.
