Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

It’s amazing how many euphemisms we have in this world for the act of coitus.  Some would say too much, others would say not enough but needless to say, urban dictionary is pretty much 80% sexual references so I’ll say there’s plenty to go around either way.  And after the night Aaron Rodgers left on his fantasy owners and the receivers by proxy, I’m sure there’ll be more innuendos built to describe the act of getting funked over.  Aaron left the game early in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury.  Seriously, I’m typing this about 4 hours after the fact and that’s really all that can be shared at this point.  Rodgers left the game with the doctor in the 1st and the doctor returned without Rodgers in the 2nd quarter and McCarthy gave a sneer when the news was relayed to him.  But again, we have zero news at this point to really say what exactly the problem is.  Then Aaron returned to the sidelines late in the 3rd in a jacket with no clear sling involved in the ensemble which further led to the questioning of just how injured he was.  Now Rodgers played with a separated non-throwing shoulder in 2008 and didn’t miss a game so we could speculate that’s not the issue.  At this point, it’s TBD whether your team is FML or FTW ROS as a Rodgers owner but I’d be making backup plans.  Foles available?  No?  How about Keenum?  Grim times, I know.  Of all things people count on from their top tier QB, it’s 16 games.  Here’s to the innuendo not ending in your end-o, friends.  In other news from Monday Night Football…

Josh McCown – To quote myself when I ranked McCown & Foles 10th and 11th for QBs this week: Surprise!  It felt right and if Spike Lee taught me anything in life besides that it’s gotta be the shoes it’s to do the right thing.  To be fair, I thought it was gonna be a shootout for McCown to finish this high but either way, I was liking his game before this game even started.  After a 22/41 night for 272 and 2 TDs along with 20 rushing yards, the news about Cutler coming back just feels a little too soon.  No chance you could just rest your broken crotch one more week, Jay?  BTW, Jay out there on waivers?  Is Rodgers your QB?  Two birds, one stone y’all.

Eddie Lacy – He needs a nickname.  He also needs to send his personal game tapes to T-Rich as a former alum friend.  Lacy finished with 22/150/1 but oddly zero receptions.  How do the Packers put in a QB who averages 6 yards per attempt that doesn’t throw to the RB?  Hello?  A bubble screen perhaps?  No, you’d rather have him throw to Quarless…of course, McCarthy, of course.  But back to Eddie…holy hamster wheels, the kid is everything you could want and more.  It’s too bad he’s fat.  #Sarcasm

Brandon Marshall – Had 7/107/1 on 13 targets. Heard a lot of worry when Cutler went down about Marshall.  Told ya to not worry.  We good now?  Yeah, we good.

Jordy Nelson – How bad was it owning a wide receiver for the Packers tonight?  Rodgers was 1/2 with 27 yards before he left.  Those yards went to Nelson.  Jordy finished with 4/67 on 9 targets.  Yeah, we’re done here if Aaron is done here.

Alshon Jeffery – He’s a baby Marshall.  Brandon Jr.  Mini-Marsh.  Whatever, I’m just trying to say he’s not going anywhere if you’re worried about it.

James Starks – Before you get excited about the endline, let me Debbie Downer it for you.  One, 32 of those 40 yards were on 1 carry.  Two, that 32 yard scamper?  I’m pretty sure Michael Bush could’ve scored on it.  Three?  He plays behind Eddie Lacy.  Your fantasy dreams are invalid.

Matt Forte – Fuerte keeps playing strong: 24/125/1 on the ground 5/54 on 8 targets through the air and played a huge role in the game killing drive in the 4th quarter that included a 4th and inches conversion.  Oh and that TD?  Yeah, it was a goal line carry.  Meanwhile, Bush looking like what Wallace looks like compared to being Rodgers’ backup.

Seneca Wallace – I don’t care you’re in a 2 QB league.  I don’t care that your 2 QB league has Tom Brady and Alex Smith on bye next week.  I don’t care that you score a bonus of 25 points just for starting a guy with the name ‘Seneca’.  He’s unownable.  Packers management are learning this quickly.  I have no doubt they’re texting Brett Favre as you read.  Hopefully they don’t get any pics in return.

  1. Tenn is -13 at home Vs Jax
    I wonder if I should drop Carolina’s DEF (@SF) to pick up TENN for a 1-week stream.

    I would probably lose Carolina to free-agency, but will have KC back from a bye next week.

    Thoughts?

      @James R: If you are carrying two DSTs, it seems like you can go ahead and go for weekly upside with your least favorite.

      @James R: If you do it, you’re riding TEN for 2 weeks or at least picking up another DEF for week 11. Haven’t looked at matchups but I think KC goes straight into Denver after the bye.

  2. There’s a team in my league who owns the top-2 RBs in the league (Charles & Forte) and is 4-5 in 7th place. Strange luck.

    Have Matt Ryan who has looked terrible. Wondering who I should try and claim first in FA pickup between foles and cutler. Thoughts? Cutler is supposed to be back and has already had his bye. Both eagles and beads seems to have similar strength of schedule left. Thought? Thanks in advance

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      @Gbbb: I’d own both if I could. I’d also drop Matt Ryan. If I had to choose between the two, it has to be Cutler for known job security.

    Here are my takes on Harvin and Amendola:
    1. Looks like Harvin is unlikely to play this week, I know it is day-to-day, but we have to be on the doubtful side as of now?
    2. Amendola is not looking like Welker-lite to me. Last week it looked healthy in thatcould cut, but maybe lacked some long speed. So injury could be at play, but he isn’t looking terrible. I think usage is a bigger problem than injury for him. He is only getting a handful of targets, not the two handfuls of goodness we expected for Welker. Is he a sell high for you (assuming I can find a buyer who will take him on bye)?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @the imp:

      1. Harvin was expected back by week 11 at the earliest. The only thing that changed the timeframe were people hoping he’d be back earlier.

      2. He’s more dynamic than Welker and can play all the wide receiver spots. That’s a blessing and a curse. Plus you shouldn’t write him off this quickly. He’s only now played 3 full games with Tom. Let him acclimate.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: notice how completely open he was on his first two (pretty long) passes? they’re using him in different spots, which means sometimes he’ll get all sorts of passes. probably not as many really short ones as welker did.

        • the imp says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: I hear you on how open he got. I was thankful for those points too. Just not sure we can count on those bombs every week. Hopefully the Pats have turned a corner, if not, Amendola is going to be boom or bust.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          If the argument is he won’t have many 10/95 games as Welker did, I won’t fight you. The thing is, he’s gonna have better YPC because he gets to play multiple roles so the yardage should negate some of the loss of those games. And he’s a better TD bet week to week because of it as Welker was never used much in the RZ with his style of play. Just saying Amendola may not be a Welker clone but that’s not a bad thing.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks for your take on Amendola. I wouldn’t even consider a trade except that I screwed up with Harvin. I picked him up week 8 hoping he could cover for Gordon and Amendola being on bye this week (3WR start, 5WR limit).
        I’m 5-4 and tenuously grasping the last playoff spot (based on total pts), so I don’t know if I can gamble with a zero versus rolling with a bye week broski this week and Gordon/Amendola/Nicks once the byes are over.

        • the imp says:
          (link)

          @the imp: Sky, is this like last week with Foster and Ellington where I just have to ride out the Harvin zero and can’t even think about dropping him to dodge a zero (on Sunday, once we know for sure he isn’t playing)?
          The wire has the sorts like Cooper/MikeBrown/ReubenR/Hartline… about 55 WRs are owned and all these guys probably get claimed tonight to leave the standard WR4s.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            I’d be more inclined to drop him if it’s getting to the point where it affects my record/making the playoffs. That’s a lot of talent in the pool if you need it. Hartline = highest floor. Mike Brown second highest floor with a bit more upside. Cooper/Randle are wild cards. I’d gamble with Cooper right now between the two.

            • the imp says:
              (link)

              @Sky: Would you wait for the switch to make sure he is not practicing or make a switch now while the talent is still in the pool?

              • Sky

                Sky says:
                (link)

                Personally, I’d put money on Harvin not playing this week. Just never thought he was coming back any earlier than was originally suggested. You need a player this week, might as well do it now.

                • the imp says:

    Need your help. I’m crawling from the 1-5 ashes and I’m now 4-5. Every week is huge. In a 12 team PPR would you trade Brady and Zac Stacy for Drew Brees? We only start 2 RB’s and no Flex.

  8. Hey, in a 12-team league, I have Helu on my bench (as a handcuff for Morris), but I’m playing a guy who has Rodgers this week and my qb (Romo) is on bye in 11. Would you drop Helu now for either Keenum or Roethlisberger to also block my opponent from picking one of them up?

    Also Have Jordy nelson ( now suddenly irrelevant), Cecil shorts, josh gordon (bye) I have a feeling I’m gonna need some WR help real soon.
    Doug Baldwin and lance Moore on WW.

      @Chris: Trust Locker more but Keenum has way more upside. Locker’s the safe play, I’d probably stick with them.

      I’d drop Wright for Dobson for the upside factor since he’s stepped in to the Pats offense well.

      Ha, and thanks! Glad you’re enjoying the read.

    Hey I both Forte and Run DMC… I’m just wondering if maybe I should drop Michael Bush the pick up Jennings?? Do you think this is something worth doing if I have another back in Gore?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @The replacements: They’ll both just be handcuffs. So I’d go chance of opportunity. Since DMC is oft injured, I’d go Jennings.

      • The replacements says:

        @Cram It: just another quick question… I’ve also got Pryor and thinking about dropping him for Foles. Even though Foles has played pretty good he’s still may not be the starter when Vick gets healthy again (who knows when that’ll be haha) but is Pryor the better guy to hang on to?

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @The replacements: As your starter? If either will be your only QB I’d hang on to Pryor because of job security.

    (link)

    Rodgers went down to injury, have no other back up in place due to injury (Bradford) and bye week dropping, etc…

    Best options available are:
    Keenum (@Ari, Oak, Jac)
    Roethlisberger (Buf, Det, @Cle)
    Manuel (@Pit, NYJ, Bye)

    They all have a few nice matchups. I have room for both possibly, but wondering if one is a better call than the other.

    Thanks!

    • Cram It says:

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: You have to play matchups if you can. Like Manuel, then Roethlisberger, then Keenum

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
        (link)

        @Cram It:

        That is what my thinking was. I also have a trade floated to acquire Luck. For right now I am going to place a claim for two of these guys. Thinking Roethlisberger and Keenum. Ben looked good last week and they may let him sling it to catch Bradshaw.

        Thanks!

            @goodfold2:

        @ashtray: I like Foles, personally. I think he keeps that gig and that offense is built for points. He may have some stinkers down the line, but with RG3 as your QB1, I’d take a chance on Foles over Pryor.

    Got an offer from my Pops this morning, who I just happen to be playing this coming week. I’m going to list the offer and my team to see if you think it works for my team (I don’t think it does).

    Get: Torrey/Rice/Cameron
    Give: Gordon/Reed

    QB: Stafford
    WR: Green
    WR: Bryant
    WR: Garcon
    RB: Fuerte
    RB: Gio (hope he dresses up like Barry Sanders again this week)
    TE: Graham
    W/R: Decker
    W/R/T: CJsomethingerotherK
    BN: Rivers
    BN: Reed
    BN: Gordon
    BN: Harvin
    BN: Sproles
    BN: Ridley
    IR: Vereen

    0.5 PPR, you know the bonuses by now.

    I’m now in first place, again, but tied in the standings. I personally think, barring injury, that this team is a monster and I’m not sure I want to mess with it. He also has Ellington and Stacy and I’d swap one of those in instead of Rice (wow, how the mighty have fallen), not sure I want his 40 yards from scrimmage.

    • Mark says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian:

      Are you in a 2 team league with your dad? That team is very deep. I wouldn’t do it unless you can get Stacy instead of Rice. Neither of the guys you are trading should start for you unless you have an injury. I would personally be trying to package a couple of those guys for another stud RB. Haven’t looked at ROS matchups but something along the lines of CJ2K or Ridley (sell high) and Gordon for a better back. Unless every team has as much depth as you…

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Mark: this is a shallow 8 team league. But yes, my team is sick. I’ve made out like a bandit on a couple trades, made some smart waiver wire moves, and drafted well. I took a ton of WRs (like Garcon and Decker) late-ish when people were taking players like Motee Ball and Daryl Richardson. And I kept Graham and Dez, took Green with my first pick and then Forte fell back to me, luckily.

        I agree with you that it would take Stacy to make it worthwhile. But he is in love with Stacy now, so I don’t see him going anywhere.

        I like the packaging option, but no one wants to trade with me right now, aside from this offer. I’m tied for first place, but I have the highest point total by 150 points over the guy in 3rd and 250 points over the guy in 2nd. Like I said, my team is overly stacked. Seriously, people have said they won’t trade with me because my team is too good.

        What kind of back would you be looking for with Ridley/Gordon?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          If your team is stacked and no one is willing to trade with you and you’re up 150 points on the next best team…I think you should be closing up shop, personally, and enjoy your wealth. You’re gonna have to fight people to take trades which means you’re not getting the value you should in return.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: haha, I’ve thought about that. My team is good, and it’s set up well for the rest of the season and playoffs, barring injury of course. I made the counter offer for Stacy. If he doesn’t do it, no harm done. I’ll then cut Sproles for Shorts (he’s on waivers until tomorrow). But I’m tempted to hang on to Sproles for the week, just to see if he gets back in that offense. But damn, he’s been TURRIBLE lately.

              Yeah, the Saints offense has been pretty bad overall. Brees has thrown at least 5 picks over the last two or three weeks that were negated by penalties. He’s not really grooving and neither is the offense. Injuries have played a part but really, they don’t seem to be doing what’s brought them success in the past right now.

        @Sky: kind of my thoughts on it, exactly. Man Rice sucks these days. I’ll counter it with Stacy in there. I’m sure he’ll deny it, but I’ll be fine with that. Team Tommy Waddle is a friggin’ monster as it stands.

    Would you upgrade to Fleener, Wright, or Garrett Graham over Heath Miller at TE in a PPR league? Pretty solid everywhere else and was just looking for consistency out of the position but Miller’s 7-8 points has got to be about what I should expect in absence of a TD in a given week. Is it worth carrying 2 guys of this caliber?

          Fleener won’t be any more consistent. I’d say Olsen is higher on the target chart for Newton than Fleener is for Luck.

    Would you rather Andre Johnson or leveon bell ROS .5 ppr. How close are the two? Is Reggie bush a top 5 ppr back for you going forward?
    Also best spec add : biernard pierce, helu, Dennis Johnson or mike
    Brown ( I have more depth at wr than rb if that’s worth anything) thanks!

      I am not a huge Bell fan so it’s Andre for me, especially with a gun slinger back there in Keenum.

      Bush definitely is but I’d put him at 5 and not higher because of injury history.

      Dennis Johnson

    Dez Bryant or D. Thomas for ROS in my WR1 position? I’m thinking Dez because he’s the main guy at Dallas and there are like 10 million receivers for Peyton in Denver (LITERALLY 10 million ha).

    A couple of other things that make me lean that way are: I’m most likely going to be in the playoffs and I like the Cowboys schedule. I also have Romo as my QB.

    I would have to trade for Bryant, but I think I can do that. Thoughts?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: You’ll have to trade for Dez? You’ll probably have to overpay. So if it’s like DT and another guy that you use, you’re not strengthening your team. I would think you should just hold on to DT.

      • Ryan says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: ya. I have a multitude of RBs though and they are hurting for RBs. So I think I might add one of mine from the bench to the trade. We will see!

    I’ve got Garcon, AJ Green, and VJax; thinking about trading one of them for zac stacy or reggie bush. My RB’s are Fred Jackson and Steven Jackson so I could just start them for the rest of the season if you don’t think either of those backs are worth one of my guys…

    Having a crisis on how to use my #3 waiver claim. I kind of want to pick up one of the two big QBs available (foles or Cutler). On the other hand, the team I am playing this week is really hurting due to Bye week issues and would currently need to pick up a couple RB/WR and a K to fill out his roster. So should I use my claim to get a QB or should I use it to snag Rashad Jennings (best W/R available).

    My roster:

    QB-RG3
    WR-Green
    WR-Allen
    WR-Fitzgerald
    RB-Morris
    RB-Lacy
    TE-Reed
    W/R-Stacy
    K-Crosby
    Def-CAR
    Pryor
    Rice
    Starks
    Stewart
    Stevie Johnson
    Mike Brown

    Thanks!

    • Cram It says:

      @ashtray: I wouldn’t use to block a guy from getting a scrub RB. You don’t need a RB or WR or a QB. I wouldn’t use the claim, but the only place I would if I had to, would be to take a shot on the upside of Foles.

    • Sky

    Think I got missed above so will ask again, though Wright got plucked this morning all ready, so he’s gone:

    Would you upgrade to Fleener, Wright, or Garrett Graham over Heath Miller at TE in a PPR league (add Olsen in that mix, he was dropped)? Pretty solid everywhere else and was just looking for consistency out of the position but Miller’s 7-8 points has got to be about what I should expect in absence of a TD in a given week. Is it worth carrying 2 guys of this caliber?

    I either can’t trade for or owners won’t give (for my moreno or bush)
    rivers (owner values a LOT) nor
    kaep (same owner as rivers but needs WR, doesn’t think moreno (19.66 pts per game) is much of upgrade over any of
    f-jax (15.41 per game, but could go down pretty easily)
    spiller (11.21 per game, but this is really more, and will get higher, but how much?)
    bell (PIT, 15.58 per game)
    jacobs (shouldn’t be owned, and he may come to see this when a.brown takes this job immediately)
    basically he’s quite happy to send 2 of mccoy/1 BUF guy/bell every week rather than ugrade a bit to moreno and have to give up Kaep.
    if I can waiver foles or cutler this is moot but
    1. is pryor or big ben (would have to wait till next week on ben) worth moreno or bush? seems not. could take moreno/floyd for ben/fitz see if it works next week.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Pretty much. You’re trading from a bad spot right now and it won’t help you long term. And keep in tune with the Rodgers news. It’s not sounding good right now. Tony Romo missed 10 1/2 games with a broken clavicle last year and it ended his season. It might be good to shop Rodgers now and see if you can get out from underneath this issue.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Sky: @Sky: having no moral conundrum with trade raping anybody aside, who would trade for rodgers now? it certainly wouldn’t be the owners of QB’s better than
            owner 1. ben and brady (would likely shop ben after this week, for one of my great RB’s)
            owner 2. rivers (not being moved)/kaep (told me he’d only move him for good WR)
            And you already told me trading moreno or bush for 1 of ben/pryor isn’t worth it ( i do agree with this last part as the difference between those 2 and keenum/glennon/eli isn’t that high anyway).
            I have (what used to be) pretty good starting WR in nelson/d-jax/dola but little depth with floyd/j.jones or jennings as backups (no flex here, just 3 WR).
            1. I guess i’ll add nelson to trade block expecting to sell somewhat high on name value, with him and one of bush/moreno for a good (not great) QB and a lesser but possibly equal post rodgers WR? other than that really need to get cutler and him play soon.
            2 only positive point: wasn’t Romo wearing a sling immediately after that injury? Rodgers was even able to jog off while swinging arm.

              You can look at the bright side on the Aaron Rodgers stuff like you mentioned with Romo but the injuries are too similar for me to believe much of the GB hype. I think the team is trying to keep info confusing for other teams. I’m seeing ‘small fracture’ and ‘three weeks’. I guess it depends how much those three weeks will affect you and how confident you are in him returning 1) on time and 2) at the same level. I think how they respond in the QB pool this week will say just how much they believe in the 3 week stance.

      @Prez: do you have a lot of the same players? I have a.brown/vereen in 3/4 (3 out of 3 PPR’s) and rodgers 2/4 and luck 2/4. of course my record varies a lot from 7-2, 6-3,5-4, all the way down to 2-7 in RCL. the 2-7 could very easily be 4-5 or 5-4 though.

        @goodfold2: nahh i really dont have that many of the same players. Cruz in 2, but i did have djax in all 4 for some odd reason.. already sold high on him in 2 though.

        Im 5-4 in the rcl with a team that starts jaquizz as a rb2 and a random flex.. and just lost aaron rodgers. Team is a pile of shizz and is 5-4… Im sure some liquid paper is in order for me.

      @Prez: That’s impressive. My best record team 6-3 is probably one of my worst teams somehow. I have tons of 4-5 or 5-4′s, one 3-6 that I’m in 6th place in (yeah, getting hosed via matchups there. Team’s beastly) and 2-7 experts league where everything is just broken. When you can’t win and you start Riley Cooper, it’s time to admit defeat.

        @Sky: Happens every year in my 14-teamer. Someone in the bottom 3 or 4 in total points finishes in 3rd or 4th and someone in the top 3 or 4 in total points finishes in the bottom 3 or 4. It’s basically why I hate fantasy football.

        @Sky: wierd how this shit plays out sometimes.. how did you lose starting riley?? He had t.y? Andre? Both washington backs?

          Giovani and Keenan going off while Boykin got Rodger’d and the Seahawks keep not figuring out how to hand off to Lynch. Lost by 20 as he was one of three teams that cleared 150 on the week. I have T-Rich and traded Gore for Roddy White in that league so that kinda tells you how things are going.

  53. booya says:

    I have both Luck and Rivers. Would you give Rivers and Reilly Cooper for Rodgers and Decker?

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @booya: so by the time your playoffs roll around you will have upgraded (or at least tied in QB’s) at both spots? YES! It helped you massively to have 2nd good QB with which to do this.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @booya: Just realize you’re really trading Rivers/Cooper for Decker. Injury to Aaron is sounding significant. I’m not against it, though, for the gambling side that Rodgers is back sooner than expected.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: even since 4 hours ago the news has gone from 3 weeks or likely less to at least 3 weeks and 50-50 for the 4th week (fantasy playoffs in damn near all places). From staring a division crown in the face (while having 2nd best team) and a second sure playoff team to scraping into playoffs and who knows in the other league.

          I’m going strictly by what happened to Romo in 2010. He never played another snap after week 6. Maybe he would’ve come back if the Cowboys were close to a playoff spot but those injuries are too similar for me to think Rodgers is back that fast.

    So in a 10 teamer non ppr I am super deep at WR and RB I have SJAX Spiller Bush Ellington Ivory and Green. At WR I’ve got Welker, Decker, Hilton, Harvin, Amendola, Boykin. I was thinking of offering SJax Ivory and Decker for Jamal Charles what do you think? Trying to trade depth for stud.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      So this week you’re starting Welker/Hilton/Boykin? With Seneca Wallace most likely throwing to him? That’s a tough sell for me. I don’t mind the trade overall but you’re most likely not using Harvin until week 12 and it’s a question of getting into the flow with him. Don’t know if I’d count on him that much.

      • The Dredd Pirate says:
        (link)

        @Sky: We have Welker, Amendola and Hilton to start all top 20 for only 2 WR Slots and Then if accepted it would be Bush, Charles with then just deciding the flex with the other 2 backs(Spiller or Ellington) or the other WR. We wouldn’t be starting boykin we dropped him now that Rodgers is out. Although I know Amendola is on bye. So we would start Welker Hilton with a RB at Flex.

      No, it doesn’t. Just reaks of desperation from the 2-7 team.

    Would u trade Brady and Andre Brown for Demarco Murray? I have Stafford.

      I’d do that.

  57. malamoney says:

    Would you trade Ray Rice to get Witten, Cameron or Gonzalez in a PPR league?

    Starting Moreno and Lynch over Rice. Have Mike James as a backup.
    I start 3 WR (Dez, Keenan and TY) with Shorts and Kendall Wright on bench.

    Just lost Rudolph. Need a TE.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Still a big Cameron believer but he’s on bye. Witten would have to be your guy there in my book.

      • malamoney says:
        (link)

        @Sky: So are you saying you would trade Rice for Witten or out of that group you’d take Witten if you had to take one?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          You’re underselling but unless you’re going to tell me you have someone to drop so you can stream a TE, it’s really the best move you have going for yourself.

          • malamoney says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I can drop Rudolph and stream. Is that the better move?

    Should I use the number 1 waiver on Rashad Jennings? or maybe Riley Cooper? or hold?

    My RBs are Reggie Bush, Zac Stacy, Le’Veon Bell and Doug Martin

    My WRs are Demaryius Thomas, Cecil Shorts, Keenan Allen, Harry Douglas

    Thanks

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Who are you dropping? I think Rashad gets a chance to start for a few weeks at least. He’s worth a pickup in my book. I don’t see when you’d start Cooper on your team.

      • RalphW says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I have a open roster spot, dont need to drop anyone. If Rashad only starts a few weeks, i m not sure if he worth using the #1 wavier on. Im almost a lock for the playoffs at 7-2, don’t really need Rashad for the rg season

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Gotcha. Just that it’s the same hammy that took DMC out earlier in the year. I think it’s minimum but you don’t need Rashad so it may not be the best move for you.

          • RalphW says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Alright thanks, I think ill hold, see whats there next week

    Like any of these moves .5ppr/10 team

    Drop Rg3 for Foles (Rivers is my starter)
    Drop T Rich for Ivory (have Charles, Ellington, Stacy)
    Drop Colston for Amendola or Dobson (starters are D Thomas and A Brown)

    This season only

      1) Risky but could pay off; you have a good fallback to try it.
      2) Nah
      3) Reasonable. It would be ‘dola for me probably better to wait until you know more about Colston since the Pats aren’t playing this week. You should have time.

  66. Harbinger says:

    QB: Cam
    RB: Charles, Moreno, L.Bell, A. Brown, MJD
    WR: Nelson, Amendola, Gordon, Douglas, Harvin
    TE: Gronk, Cameron, Wright(others on bye this week)

    1 Point PPR. I like my team but I feel like my WRs need an upgrade, since I lost Julio Jones a few weeks back. I have an owner he needs a tight end badly and could use a running back. He has Fitzgerald, Wright, Jeffrey, S. Smith WR as who he may part with at this point. Who would you think would be the best trade target and a reasonable offer?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Jeffery for Brown or MJD. Not interested in anyone else there, really.

  67. malamoney says:
    (link)

    Traded Romo for Beast Mode. Now Russell Wilson is my only QB.

    Which of the following wire options is the best backup:

    Foles, Keenum, Cutler, Pryor or Wallace. Mostly just need one for Wilson’s bye week (12)

    • malamoney says:

    hey sky, i know you have been weary for jimmy’s lingering foot injury but at 4-5 im trying to liquidate the bench fodder and maximize upside as my byes are mostly over. ive been offered jimmy graham for cecil shorts, jordan reed and rashad jennings (hes a dmc owner whos thin at rb) like the deal? or overpaying too much. i could try to offer mike brown instead but unsure if he’d go for that, thanks
    qb – rivers
    wr – calvin
    wr – dez
    rb – forte
    rb – bell
    te – reed

    In a keeper league, would you give up Alshon Jeffrey and Woodhead/Bernard for Ray Rice as a buy low bargain? Too much? Maybe just one of those guys? The other owner is pretty well balanced.

      In a keeper, I’d like to keep my young RB in Bernard and my young stud receiver in Alshon, personally.
