Thank goodness I wrapped up a victory on Sunday and didn't need Fitz to do anything. I figured he'd get shut down by the niners.

One of the guys in my league is trying to unload MJD. Should I even bother with trying to get him? I already have Greg Jennings riding my bench cause I picked him up cheap in a trade, he was already out but it was before his surgery so I thought he would be back pretty soon and screwed myself.

I wouldn't trade for MJD until they tell us what his injury is.

I sat RB Trent this week and still won but ended up winning by one point. I would have been pissed to lose with all those points on my bench with Trent.

Help...

Flacco or Rivers? (I would have to pick up Flacco)

A. Brown or T. Smith? (leaning towards Smith)

Pitt D, TB D, or SD D? (I would have to pick up SD D)

Rest of my line-up is as follows:

D. Martin
R. Jennings
B. Marshall
R. Cobb
R. Bironas

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.


You could probably just offer Cutler for Rivers straight up and see if that goes. Both are pretty disappointing this season, and generally both were drafted as a low-end starter or a high-end backup.

Help...

Flacco or Rivers? (I would have to pick up Flacco)

A. Brown or T. Smith? (leaning towards Smith)

Pitt D, TB D, or SD D? (I would have to pick up SD D)

Rest of my line-up is as follows:

D. Martin
R. Jennings
B. Marshall
R. Cobb
R. Bironas


I don't know matchups, so Flacco, Smith, and SD.

I agree - start Mike Williams. I picked him up to back up my semi-injured WRs.

Tony Romo @ ATL

Also, who should I start at my flex position?

Fred Jackson @ HOU
Jonathan Dwyer @ NYG
Santana Moss @ CAR
DeSean Jackson @ NO

I think I would go Cutler at QB due to matchup although neither of your choices can be trusted and Dwyer at flex.

Who do I start at QB this week:
Romo @ ATL
Vick @ NO
Freeman @ OAK

I'm thinking it's a two man race between Vick and Freeman. Vick has the better matchup and has to prove something to avoid getting the bench. Freeman has been on a roll in the past few weeks however.

Vick is probably the safer play (never thought I'd say that) even though Freeman has had a hot hand. I just cant see him maintaining his level of play, and with Vick against the Saints I expect a lot of throws.

Flacco vs. Browns or Romo vs. Falcons.
Bowe - SD
James Jones - Arizona
or Titus Young - Jaguars

I would drop Heyward-Bey. I know Tate is injured now, but if he's healthy and Houston clinches early, he could be a monster play for the fantasy playoffs.

Yeah, that's the way I'm leaning. Plus I figure if there was ever a week for him to blow up this would be the best chance against the worst defense in the NFL.

I was thinking the same thing but then I found out someone already owned the Chargers D. The Chiefs are probably good for at least 2 turnovers and several sacks. I'd say that's a good play unless you've got a better option.

Not sure about Floyd just because I don't trust rivers. Although DJAX has Vick throwing to him so it's also a crap shoot although the Saints are rancid.

the other option is Bal's D, but I think SD will get more pts.

As back up TE, should I keep Bennett with Giants or Keller with the Jets? Should I drop Pitt D for Denver's D? Should I just drop Greg Jennings or keep him on the off chance he makes it back this year? Thx for any help.

Floyd did well but holy crap did SD's D tear it up!!! 20+ pts which means pretty much any team that plays KC from now on should be a start

I'd keep Keller he's not doing to shabby. I'd hang onto Jennings for a few more weeks

I thought that too when Quinn was named the starter and grabbed the Raiders D last week. Unfortunately, someone else in my league had the same idea and grabbed the Chargers D off waivers. They play the Steelers next but that D is already taken in my league. Next chance is week 11 when they play the Bengals.

Actually, thinking about it now, it wasn't last week but week 6. I took the Buccaneers D because I think Cassel got hurt around this time; not that he was lighting it up anyways.

J. Gordon or R. Jennings? It looks like J. Nelson can't go this week either.
