someone just dropped boldin in my league. :o
i got a trade offer ray rice for vernon davis / frank gore. i did just lose hernandez and i have cj spiller and demarco aswell on my bench. what do yall think


I say no. This is why. You are giving up by far the best player in the trade. Also here are some TE's that might be on your wire.

Martellus Bennett (my guess will be a top 10 option this year)
Dennis Pitta (most targeted TE)
Kyle Rudolph
Coby Fleener
Scott Chandler

If you can grab one of those while Hernandez gets back I say you're Golden till Hernandez gets back. TE is deep this year. To me this looks like a way to hijack Ray Rice. No way I give up Ray Rice for Gore.

You know what I see your point. I just feel that Jennings is more talented and plays in a better offense than Bowe. Also Jennings probably would have played if the game was on Sunday last week. But I could see Bowe racking up "garbage time" stats like last week. I just lean towards the better player overall. Still slight edge IMHO to Jennings.


I can definitely see going with the more talented player in the better offense.

Thankfully, I have a few days to mull it over. :lol:

seahawks, dolphins or the lions def, pick one? Hell it might not be a bad idea to start the panthers tonight. What do you guys think?

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

I'm thinking of starting Alfred Morris over AP this week. Thoughts?

Eli @ Carolina or Vick @ Arizona?

Should I start Andre Brown over any of these: Turner, Michael Bush, DeMarco Murray, Chris Johnson

Williams if you don't mind taking a risk, Benson otherwise. In a vaccum, I'd take a chance on Williams even though I don't really like him in fantasy.

No. Rice can cover the production of both Gore and Davis some weeks. Like the other guy already told you, there are plenty of WW TEs that can't match Hernandez's potential, but can come close to matching his production. If you absolutely need to get rid of one of your RBs, sell high on Spiller or flip Murray.

Eli @ Carolina or Vick @ Arizona?

I like Eli, and bench Chris Johnson. He was a must-start stud two years ago, but not anymore. I'd play hot prospects over him until he starts producing.

I already got KyleRudolph, but i think you're right because hes got dante rasario, davis and dallas clark and his rb's are steve jackson / frank gore. i'm thinking of trying to strengthen my wide receiver core. currently, garcon/ titus young/ bowe / avery but i don't know what rb i'd offer up for a better wide receiver... i like all my rbs but only two of them will do me good, ya know? i think i'd keep cj spiller and rice and try to flip demarco murray. hopefully he has a good ass game this week and then i can start to sell him high

So I think I'm going to start Ridley in place of Ahmad Bradshaw. I still need to decide on my W/R flex spot:

- Andre Brown (I think this is a solid bet for 10 points)
- Dwayne Bowe (lots of upside)
- Danny Amendola (lots of targets from Bradford so could be an easy 10 points)

I'm in a non-PPR league; 1 point for every 10 yards; 6 points for a TD.


Help!!!

Definitely Turner and Johnson. Turner's role in Falcon offense has been dramatically reduced, and Johnson has been such a dud the last year and change that he needs to do something...anything...before he becomes a must-start again.

If I own Andre Brown in a league, is it safe to drop David Wilson? Really losing hope on him at the moment.

The panthers are stupid, yeah shade your coverage towards Cruz, so then another guy goes for 200 DAMN YARDS!!! Cruz got me 5 points

Played Andre Brown tonight in place of injured Forte and it payed dividends. Cam Newton was a bust. Should have listened to my gut and started RG3 instead.

In my opinion, yes, Wilson is in Coughlin's doghouse. Not just because of the fumble in Week 1, but because of a drop or two in the passing game. Once you're in Coughlin's doghouse, it's really hard to get out, especially when you're going to have so few chances to really make a play on offense. It would take an extended absence by Bradshaw for Wilson to really get a major chance again, and by all accounts, Bradshaw should not be out too long.

Yeah, after everything I read about LaFell being in on almost every play and being a favorite red zone target and the Giants secondary being piss poor blah blah blah I decided to throw him out there last night. That did not pay off to say the least...

I have to now decide which (2) RBs, (1) WR, and (1) FLEX I'm going to play out of these remaining players:

Fitz, Welker, D.Thomas, S.Holmes. A.Foster, D. Sproles, BGE, B.Tate, D.Richardson.

My thought it to start Fitz at my remaining WR spot, Foster & Sproles at RB but then I'm torn at FLEX between Welker, BGE, or D.Thomas.

Welker has been bunk so far but could go off at anytime, BGE is nothing special but he is the work horse for the Bengals, and D.Thomas is a stud, seems to be Mannings go to guy, and has been my most consistent player.

I had Eli on the bench starting Stafford.

Just got offered Brandon Marshall and Bears D for Ben tate and Roddy White. Sounds like I'm giving too much, and in need of a second opinion. TIA

I can't believe the trade someone offered me on my anonymous free league. Granted the free and anonymous aspect are probably part of it but they offered me Aaron Rodgers and DeAngelo Williams for Andre Brown. Yeah, Brown may have scored me 25 points last night but there's no way he takes over permanently for Ahmad Bradshaw once he's healed from his injury. Hell, there isn't even a guarantee Brown will be the starter next week...

I wouldnt do it. You're giving away the better receiver and the better back up RB. We all know the rushing TDs really start with Newton first

Help me pick 2 WR's. Non ppr league.
Brandon Marshall vs St Louis
Dez Bryant vs Tampa
Antonio Brown vs Oakland
Dwayne Bowe vs NO

My plan is Marshall for sure and Dez even though he makes me nervous with inconsistency. I was wondering if I should swap Bowe for Dez or Brown for Dez. Any opinion? I haven't seen Bowe this year but read the points he got last week were all in garbage time. I'm getting killed by injuries. I have Forte, Fred Jackson, and Aaron Hernandez. I also have Chris Johnson who hasn't done anything. I also have Ben Tate but am afraid how much he'll get the ball to switch him in for Chris Johnson at this point.

I say you stick with Dez. They're at home this week and Tampa's secondary got torched last week. I think the Cowboys will bounce back.

I'm in a similar situation with my RBs. I need to fill 1RB spot and 1 Flex spot (1/2 point PPR) from:

RB Chris Johnson, Donald Brown, Ben Tate, Mikel LeShoure
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore

Can't believe I'm asking this about my RB's.

Chris Johnson
Donald Brown
Jamaal Charles

One of the three.

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

Any thoughts on Peterson, Gates, and J. Nelson for Lynch, J. Graham, and Torrey Smith? Nelson is my best receiver and I would only have Bowe, Wayne, and Johnson left...

Should I start Andrew Luck or Drew Brees? The first few weeks I've started Brees, but i've been thinking about putting Luck in. I just don't want to bench Brees then he has a monster game, haha.
