I was offered this trade in one of my leagues:

I get:

Vernon Davis
Danny Amendola

He gets:

Aaron Hernandez

Thoughts? I know with Gronk out Hernandez becomes a big weapon if he can get back on the field, but that injury has been nagging him all year. I'm leaning towards saying no since Amendola doenst help me at WR at all (I have Roddy White, Demaryius Thomas, and Randall Cobb).

What other tight ends do you have?
Davis has been inconsistent all year. Only reason I know this is that I have him on one of my teams and he's been unreliable. If Hernandez gets healthy and back on the field, he will more than likely become a big part of the Patriots' offense.

Should I start Carson Palmer vs. Cincy or Tony Romo vs. the Redskins?

Palmer. He's at a 73% consistency rating this year and Romo is south of 50%.

I can't help but feel this is a stupid question, but I noticed somebody dropped Lawrence Tynes in a league a few days ago with his bye. Having David Akers, should I make the switch. I'm admittedly partial to Akers as he can can have his big days, but Tynes has had more double digit games thus far this year.

Right now Akers IS the offense. Until rhe Giants pick it up I'd start Akers. Comeon Eli and Cruz!!!

I picked up Brandon Myers off the waiver wire and Pitta/Chandler have been off and on available as well. I expect Hernandez will make an impact the rest of the way too, passing on this deal since my WR corp is already solid.

Should I start Carson Palmer vs. Cincy or Tony Romo vs. the Redskins?


Palmer all the way.

Akers, dont forget the Giants usually backslide the last few weeks of the season.

Shorts, STL D. Blackmon was great Sunday but Shorts has had more good weeks overall.

Start 4 WR's....

Megatron
DHB
James Jones
Julio Jones (Williams if he doesnt play)

Romo vs. Washington or Freeman vs. Atlanta.

I'm thinking Romo but he still scares me especially after his turnover festival earlier this year. He has been playing much better as of late.

Freeman has been pretty solid over the last several weeks.

Thanks, immediately canceled that trade. Traded Colston and Lance Moore for Jimmy Graham.


No problem and that is a good trade imho.

RB injury hell. With big Willie out, im down to only Dougie Martin in a start two leauge. I have Sproles on the bench but he is doubtful. Who do I pick up: StevenHowling Andre Brown, Jolie Bell, Darl Richardson or another NO RB?

Ahh man I really don't know what to do.

Brady vs the Jets (no Gronk)
RGIII vs Dallas - better than Philly def I'm going to guess...
Andrew Luck vs Buf - Is he worth picking up off the ww?

I'll probably rock it with RG3 but knowing my luck Dallas Def will show up this Thursday.

Playing

I'd start RGIII, Dallas D looked pretty rough against Cleveland.

So the guy who offered me Vernon Davis and Amendola for Aaron Hernandez? Made a deal with another owner...he gives up Amendola and Reggie Bush and gets Andre Johnson.

I like shorts or Alexander (nabbed both in my league over the past couple weeks). I'm considering starting one of them over Fitz since he's stuck in a crappy offense with no QB. Oh how I miss the days of Kurt Warner throwing the ball all over the yard! Also hoping Welker gets back to his old ways with Gronk out.

Need to start 2 from:
Leshoure, Sproles, Donald Brown, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Hillman

Pretty sure I'll stick with Leshoure and Sproles if healthy and Hillman if Sproles is out.

+1. I have Eli and Tynes and Tynes keeps out scoring Eli, that shouldn't be happening.

Should we start Julio Jones? His leg injury seems to put him in that not bad enough to sit but not good enough to go 100% situation. I'm thinking of rolling the dice and sitting him for J. Blackmon.

Wait to see how Jones participates in practice later in the week before making a final decision. Julio should feast on the Bucs secondary if he plays but I could also see Blackmon doing some damage against the Titans this week as well.

Can start 3 RBs...but which 3?
I have Marshawn Lynch, Frank Gore, CJ Spiller, Fred Jackson, Marcel Reece and Stevan Ridley....

Right now I'm leaning towards Spiller, Reece and Gore. But I don't know, Lynch is such a beast I don't feel right benching him. Any opinions?

How serviceable will Chad Henne be? I've got QB problems. I just drop M. Vick to pick up B. Roethlisberger, hoping he'll be ok for FF playoffs. My other QB is J. Flacco; who is single digit points in all away game regardless of matchup.

Henne is a gamble. He hasn't had that many reps with the offense and has a chance to bomb at any moment. But if you want to go based on the Jaguars' schedule, he really doesn't have to face any scary defenses for the rest of the season. In the end, Chad Henne's success depends on Justin Blackmon and vice versa.

Looking for a third WR in a PPR league this week.

Provided Julio Jones is going to miss the game, should I start James Jones or Ty Hilton? With Jones catches dropping in recent games, leaning Hilton, especially if Avery is out.

So...Brandon Stokley or Santana Moss? I can also start Shonn Greene in that flex spot but Stokley and Moss left about 30 points sitting on my bench last week.
