I say Sprolles on touches alone.

And Britt as a WR only based on his looks last week.


I'm also leaning Sproles and Britt too. How about...

RGIII (@NYG)
Stafford (@CHI) Monday Night

1 point per 10 passing/rushing yards
Point per completion
Big bonus points at 300 passing yards and 100 rushing yards.

Seems like an obvious RGIII start. Anyone think otherwise?

Having both RGIII and Stafford myself, I've been starting Griffin every week since week 2, and I don't see that changing this week. In my league (which is default scoring iirc), Griffin has outscored Stafford every week.

Yeah about the same in mine. I've started Stafford every week besides his bye in which RGIII got hurt and cost me an easy win.

I also just read McCarthy said Alex Green can carry a full workload so now I'm wondering if he's a better start than Sproles. GB at STL this week. If GB gets a big lead I'm thinking lots of carries for Green. Saints have so many options especially since Sproles almost never gets any handoffs.

Even IF GB gets up big they still pass it 2x more than they run it. Id see what Green does tjis week and play him if he is hot the next week when they play Jacksonville who are on the Bust for Barkley campaign 2013 (or Go git Geno, insert qb draft rhyme here)

J. Gordon or B. Lloyd or D. Moore?

I just got Gordon and Moore off waivers so I don't know how much involved in the offense they are. Reports say there pretty solid. Lloyd has been disappointing so far. Also seems he injured his shoulder.

Running back issues

I've got spots for 2, and I have Jackson, Greene, Jones, Forte, and MJD. I may drop Jones

Andrew Luck or Flacco? Want to dump one of them for the year, I'm thinking Flacco but just can't make the decision.

Lynch or Felix Jones.

Lynch plays the best run def 49ers while Jones is coming off a great week and Murray is out.

Although, Bradshaw ran all over the 49ers last week...

Damn I really don't know.

Could also sub out Steven Jackson as well...

One of my teams is just decimated by bye weeks this week.

All on bye: Julio Jones, Roddy White, Michael Turner, Michael Vick, Antonio Gates, Demaryius Thomas.

Right now, my starters at RB are Michael Bush and Felix Jones, who I just picked up today. I've got DeMarco Murray, but he's out. My only WR is Kenny Britt. I've got Jennings, but he looks doubtful again this week. I still need to fill another WR spot and a WR/TE flex spot. I'm going to have to find a way to open up two spots to pick up a couple guys from the waiver wire. I guess I could roll without a kicker and drop either Vick or Turner.

Any thoughts on Josh Freeman (at home vs NO-28th against the pass) or Cam Newton (at home vs DAL-1st against the pass). Freeman coming off a great Cam bye week for me but wondering if I should ride him one more time with the tough matchup for Cam.

If you drop Flacco you'll be kicking yourself in 5 weeks.

Personally, I only veto trades where one person is clearly getting the better of the other or two are obviously in collusion, likely because one of the teams is out of it.


Same here. Trades are fun! I rarely, if ever, veto a trade. Even if it looks like one team suddenly becomes awesome because he traded for a missing piece I still think it is fair absent collusion.

Also, FWIW, I'm in a Yahoo league and we email the commish after he announces the trade to the league if we want to veto it.

Carrying three QB's (Vick, Romo, Dalton) is really clogging up my roster but I can't justify dropping any of them and there's little interest in my league as far as trade value.

Typically I play Demaryius Thomas at FLEX but he's on bye. Who should I start in his place?
My options are Ben Tate, BJGE, or Alex Green.

Also what about QB?
Do I take a chance with Romo @ Carolina or Dalton vs. Pittsburgh? If Hasselbeck could move the ball on Pittsburgh then I would think Dalton could tear it up!

RB: I will play Foster & Sproles
WR: Fitz & Welker
TE: Witten
K: (Will pick one up, Bryant on BYE)

Also on Defense should I play Seattle (@SF) or Arizona (@MN)?

I agree. Not sure why you are rushing to veto this. Sounds like a situation where you got two guys who drafted these players really high, are getting extremely frustrated, and just want to mix things up. Gronk has averaged more points on the season, but he's still a tight end in an offense with another great tight end, two good receivers, and running backs who catch the ball. Personally, I only veto trades where one person is clearly getting the better of the other or two are obviously in collusion, likely because one of the teams is out of it.



Thanks for the input. I guess I'm too much of a newb and I'll chill out : )

Any thoughts on Oak D vs Jac? I was going to use them or use Bal.

For QB I would go with Romo. That's going to be a high scoring game in my opinion.

Flex is a tough one but I'd go with the Law Firm (BJGE).

I say do it. AJ has been underperforming a bit, but he's still HOU's WR1 while Brown is definitely behind Wallace in the pecking order. And Vernon Davis has been solid most of the season. I would say based just on his production, he's the number 2 TE in the NFL only behind Gonzo. Graham and Gronk have been playing a little below their ceiling and Hernandez is getting back to form still.

The only reason I'm thinking they're trying to trade you is the easier matchup Brown and Gates may have compared to your guys or they're just giving up and trying to build a team full of Antonios.


Also, I'm kinda stuck. I have Lynch, Gore and Spiller starting for me, but Lynch's matchup has me a little worried. As does Gore's. I have FJax sitting on the bench, but I'm considering sitting maybe Lynch (since he was gameplanned out of the game in Carolina) and starting FJax who has a juicy matchup against TEN. And I really like Britt at my WR2 but I'm unsure of taking out VJax. Decisions decisions!

Keep an eye on Akers tonight, fellas. He was sick this week. He practiced and is listed as probably, but seeing as it's a Thursday game, no reason to leave him in there if he doesn't play.

I would definitely do that trade for AJ and Vernon. To me, Johnson still has elite receiver skills. He just can't stay healthy. The Texans have been limiting his snaps, hoping he can stay on the field. If his tank is full towards the end of the year, he may very well get the opportunity to break out. And at this point in their careers, Davis is significantly ahead of Gates, especially considering he can't stay on the field half the time. If you were giving up another #1 receiver, I would say deny it, but yeah, despite the numbers, I would Wallace is clearly the top dog. As the weather gets colder, too, Miller's targets will increase, and they will be running the ball a lot more.

Not happy hearing about Bradshaw's foot injury even though he says he's fine. Coughlin said Brown and Wilson will get their chances and carries.

I have a RB and a flex spot available. Who should I start?

Green-Ellis vs Steelers
Leshoure vs Bears
Ballard vs Browns
D. Henderson vs Bucs

I picked up Ballard and Henderson off the WW this week and currently have them in my lineup. I have always stayed away from drafting/playing Saints' players but I'm hoping Henderson gets some targets vs TB's weak pass def. BTW, this is in a ppr league.

He's had chronic foot issues throughout his career, which is a big reason why I generally steer clear of him unless he happens to fall far in a draft.

Thanks for your opinions guys, I pulled the trigger last night and I agree with what you are saying. Makes me feel a little better with that extra intel. I feel Andre has more upside in the longrun and Davis will be more consistent.

Main reason he offered is because Andre has been a bust so far this year and he needed a different TE for week 9 (Davis on bye).

Well Vernon has been somewhat more consistent than Gronk so far this season. And after having a very quiet game against the Giants last week, I'm expecting Davis to have a huge day against the Seahawks. I also think Brady is going to continue to spread the ball around, leaving Gronk with less targets. So far this season Davis also has 1 more TD than Gronkowski and is probably the 49ers' biggest target in the red zone.

Just my two cents.

Flex is a tough one but I'd go with the Law Firm (BJGE).


I know, I keep reading all these things about Romo having a break out game this week. I'm just so scared to start him with all of the turnovers and it doesn't seem like his line has been able to protect him very well. I guess Dalton is the safer play but Romo has the higher potential for a blow-up.

How about defense? Should I play Seattle tonight against SF or AZ against MN?

I like Seattle a little bit better but I fear Harbaugh wanting to put a beat down on someone after they were manhandled by the Giants.

Welp, I'm done with Vernon Davis, Alex Smith sucks and is captain checkdown which would usually be good for TE's but nope just RB's.

Alex Smith threw 13 TDs to him in 2010 and Davis dominated last year's playoffs. It's not Alex Smith's fault, it's the gameplan, they don't lean on Davis enough this year.
