Here's something I was offered today in my work league. A guy is looking to give me Greg Jennings and a low RB (maybe Michael Bush) for MJD and a low end WR. We're still in the talking stage, but with MJD's holdout going into the regular season it looks like. It's intriguing. Plus the league is PPR.


I'd say if I owned Forte that is a deal I'd probably take at this point. The question is what does the rest of your team look like? Do you have other RBs good enough that you can afford to sit on MJD and wait until the holdout ends? Same can be asked of your WR corp, is Jennings a significant enough upgrade that it really improves your team or do you already have 2 or 3 other WRs that can hold their own.

My top three is Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, and Reggie Wayne. I could get by with them, also having Titus Young and Kenny Britt worthy of note. RBs are a bit shaky, so it is tempting to trade for Jennings and maybe use someone else for another RB. Of course, instead of him giving me Bush, might see if I can get Doug Martin for him.

Only thing that worries me with MJD is, how long he'll holdout for. And I'd hate for him to miss time and his value keeps dropping.

Alright, who do you start between these two; Jordy Nelson and Brandon Lloyd.

I like Nelson but they're playing the Niners. I'm thinking low scoring game/possession. Also, G. Jennings is their No.1 WR and Rogers favorite target right?

Lloyd, on the other hand, is probably getting single coverage every game. Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker should get all the defenses attention. Branch also got cut yesterday. Am I crazy to think every Brady-to-Lloyd is a touchdown waiting to happen?

Can't go wrong with either the first week. If you don't like Nelson, start Lloyd.

If you can make a trade of MJD/WR for Jennings/Martin, do that. I have Martin as a top 15 RB and Jennings is a huge upgrade for you. I don't have much faith in MJD with his holdout going on for as long as it has been.

We did our draft last week and here's the roster I ended up with:

QB: Mike Vick, Tony Romo
RB: Arian Foster, Darren Sproles, Benjarvis Green-Ellis, Ben Tate, Daniel Thomas
WR: Wes Welker, Larry Fitzgerald, Santonio Holmes, Demaryous Thomas, Brandon LaFell
TE: Jason Witten, Coby Fleener, Jared Cook
K: Robbie Gould
D: Detroit Lions

My league starts a QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, TE, FLEX (WR/TE/RB), K, D.

Should I start Romo @ NYG or Vick @ Cleveland? I swore I wasn't going to go anywhere near Vick this year but he just kept dropping until he was by far the best value on the board.

I'll have an issue at TE as well. Witten is questionable for Week #1. If he can't go should I take a chance on the Stanford connection w/ Fleener(Bears passing D is average at best) or go with Cook?

Bowe is Moss-esque. He's talented and can blow up at anytime IF he feels like playing. The other issue is his offense. Cassel does not have a very strong arm and KC looks to be a grind it out offense this season with Charles/Hillis.

Glad I took Rashad Jennings as well since MJD is still holding out. I have him starting but have to watch out if MJD decides to stop being a pussy since he potentially could start.

I'm high on Dwayne Bowe myself, he looked like a player who was just never going to figure it out but it looks like he totally has. Their best option through the air. Have confidence drafting and playing him.

Vick all day long against Browns.
Cook would be the safer play, rookie TE w/rookie QB against a good, but showing age D? Take Cook.

With MJD back, how viable is Rashad Jennings? Should I even start him anymore. I know the coach said Jennings will be the starter but are we looking at one of those situation where he gets the first snap and then goes bench role after that? If they're split 50/50, is it better to start Peyton Hillis instead?

I think Jennings might be be worth starting in a flex for the first week, maybe two, but it's hard to say after that. Jacksonville is going to pound the ball, its only a matter of who gets the rock.

Speaking of MJD, that same guy gave me a new offer. Doug Martin for MJD. Could MJD have a bad year this year with the holdout? Maybe. But Martin is a rookie. He claims I need the help early in the first few weeks, but since Richardson might be out as well, I'm probably already screwed week 1 that I already think it's a loss in my mind.

At this point, I'm thinking I'll just hold on to him.

MJD led the league in rushing coming off a major knee injury where he also missed all of training camp. I wouldn't worry, although he will go from about 320 carries to somewhere around 240-260. I love Martin, have him on two teams, wanted him on three, but I would want more than him straight up.
