I’m gonna start this buy/sell off saying I’m sorry to those who think Miller Lite is a good beer.  I’m not here to tell you that you’re wrong – though you are…just saying that’s not why I’m here – I will say there’s been plenty of brewers over the last 20+ years who’ve come out and I strongly suggest you take a swig or two of some other brews out there.  Heck, I’m not even gonna tell you I’m all about the microbrews.  I like me some Blue Moon and I’ll drink a Corona.  What I’m trying to tell you is that you and I aren’t so different from each other.  I wake up and put my assless chaps on just like everyone else.  The main difference is, when I’m done I go buy a local IPA most likely and you buy Molson Ice.  Wait, what are we talking about?  Oh yeah, Lamar Miller.  I’ve been getting a lot of ‘should I sell this guy for a bag of doritos and signed photos of from Menudo’ questions lately and I want them to stop.  NOW.  So I’m making him my buy feature.  Ok, that’s not the only reason of course.  The kid’s been good or at the least ‘not as bad as people think he’s been’ good.  The first real game Lamar’s been given a chance to be the man started week 4 against the Saints.  Wanna know what he did?  Well, 11/62/1 on the ground.  Not overly excited?  Keep in mind most of that happened in the first half before NOLA went for the jugular in the second half and put the Dolphins on pass-heavy alert for the remainder of the game.  The next week against Baltimore was tough sledding – only 7 for 15 on the ground – but few have run the ball well against the Ravens defense so far this year.  It seems that maybe expectations have clouded judgement concerning Lamar coming into the year.  He still looks like a solid low end RB2/flex play most weeks but I think people think he’s their bench RB at this stage.  I can’t promise sexy numbers but I think there are plenty of 80 yard games in his future with a touchdown here and there just waiting for him.  Take advantage before the market on him goes dry…Bud Dry…yeah, I’m gonna stop talking about beer now.  In other buy/sell news for 2013 Fantasy Football…

BUY

Robert Griffin, III – Wait, didn’t I tell you to sell him a couple of weeks ago?  Hrm…yeah, I did.  I think it was right after week 2 if I’m not mistaken.  My main concerns went like this: a huge part of his value came from his legs and from how he was playing, it wasn’t clear if he was still needing rehab for the knee or he didn’t fully trust it.  Well something or someone must’ve flipped the switch for him before week 6 as he went for 77 yards on 9 carries.  That total doubled his rushing yards for the year up to 149.  Though he’s still not 100% the kid we saw last year, he’s running again and could be a great buy at this point now if owners are just looking at the underlying meh statlines he’s been putting up since week 2.

Chris Johnson – Not gonna lie, this is a buy and pray suggestion.  This is not the CJ of old at this point.  I don’t even know if he’s the CJ of 2012.  But what I do know is the schedule after San Fran looks pretty nice for running backs.  I can’t make any promises he’ll perform up to what he should given those matchups.  Heck, I can’t even promise the Titans will keep feeding him the ball when Greene comes back (seriously, how sad of a world would it be if Shonn takes over for you?).  But I can point at the schedule and make a reasonable argument.  And so it has been done.

James Jones – Cobb down for 6-8 weeks and Nelson can’t haul in all the extra targets.  Consider this also a sorta/kinda buy call on Finley as well.  They’re not gonna stop throwing the ball just because Randall isn’t there.  Jones might become a very consistent high-end WR3 the until Cobb comes back and should probably go at a reasonable price to find out.

Justin Blackmon – Beast.  One a team that will most likely play from behind every week.  Who might’ve lost his sole competitor for targets in Shorts or who at the very least might be limited for a bit.  And yet I still get the feeling no one trusts the breakout.  Listen, it started half way last year and it never really stopped.  I’m calling top 15 WR ROS here and think most owners believe they have a sell high on their hands.  If you can talk their owners into a reasonable price, take it.  Not all ‘buy lows’ look like buy lows at the time.  I think he’s gonna have a prorated Garcon-like line by the end of the year meaning a nice balance of consistency mixed with upside but not many huge touchdown games.

Nick Foles – Someone picked him up to stream against whatever for the week.  Heck, they might even throw him back if they’re not paying attention to the news that he might be the starter against Dallas.  The Vick experiment might be winding to a close in Philly after last week’s performance by Nick.  You know how good that offense is when it’s clicking.  Foles could easily be a top 10 QB by volume alone from here on out if he keeps the job.

Sell

Terrance Williams – I really do love this kid but unless you realize what he really is – he’s what Chris Givens could be for 3 or 4 games in a row this year – you’re gonna have a hard time accepting that he’s the 3rd and sometimes 4th option for his own team.  It’s not a question of his talent, mind you, but I’m not gonna battle the numbers: 8, 4, 2.  That’s the target totals for him the last three weeks.  His line for week 6 was saved by a touchdown because 2 receptions for 27 yards isn’t exactly inspiring.  See if you can move him either as a sweetener or to a desperate owner looking for a WR3.

Rueben Randle – A dicey call here as if Nicks gets traded, this sell call is gonna look silly.  But I’m also having a hard time believing they’re gonna be able to move Nicks.  I think that ship has sailed at this point so I’m suggesting you take advantage of his current place as the 25th best WR in the yahoo game as a peak point.  Ahem, I said ‘peak’ not ‘peek’.  Get out of my bathroom!  I wouldn’t be selling him for anything less than his current value but I’d rather get away from this Giants roller coaster if I can help it.

Matt Ryan – His season was already fairly flat by fantasy standards.  Now with Julio out for the year, a banged up Roddy and a running back who apparently decided 30 is really the new 40, it’s shaping up to be a lost year for Ryan fans.  Not to mention that o-line has not protected him well at all to date, I’m not seeing the upside in keeping Matty Ice around for the rest of the season.  Someone wants to pay name brand price, do it.

    If I snag Josepf off the waivers, would it make sense for me to package Ray Rice in exchange for Murray + Chief DST? The guy with Murray is also a Cobb owner and has no RB aside from CJno2K

    WR3 Blackmon, Wallace or Edelman Ros. Switching weekly on matchup rating. 10 team standard league.

    Own Green, Torrey Smith,K. Allen( cause i knew he was gonna blow up and should have listened to you and picked up blackmon to start over him….but still won….own him over blackmon? Also own Wallace.

    My team
    Qb Rg3 and Wilson
    Wr Green,T.Smith, K. Allen and M. Wallace.
    Rb Martin, Morris, L.Miller, Mjd, McGahee
    TE J. Graham
    K. Dawson
    Def N.E.

    Dropping my stream of cinci for a stream TE. Any suggestions? G. Graham , Chandler , Reed, Myers etc TE3 suggestions?

    Basically I’m asking switch Allen or Wallace for Blackmon Edelman? And who to pick up for TE stream this week?

    Sitting at 3-3 in a league where most teams r at 3-3 in 5th.

    2 questions..
    Better pickup for a TE needy team for week 7 and ROS.. Jordan Reed vs CHI or Tim Wright @ATL?

    Also.. start Jordy vs. CLE with Hayden looming or Keenan Allen @JAX? Thanks man.

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Mike, I picked up Reed over Wright because I think his targets are less dependent on the health of the team around him. I think Reed has passed FDavis for good and if RG3 keeps it going, there might be some more open space for him in upcoming weeks.

    Would you drop Jared Cook for Fleener, Celek, or Brandon Myers? not too many good options out there.

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @ChiliCheeseConey: Cook played only 29/47 snaps. So it might be time for a change. Fleener is on the field more, but hasn’t done much 3/5 weeks and has a bye coming wk 8. Ertz (instead of Celek) might be a guy to watch in Philly as he is getting more time from Celek, but I don’t know if I’d trust him to start.

      @ChiliCheeseConey: I would see if Jordan Reed from WASH is available. I really like the targets & snap count he’s getting.

    12 team 0.5 ppr league, just lost Cobb.

    My wr are now: jordy, Keenan Allen, and Reuben randle
    My rb are: Charles, Moreno, Ridley, deangelo Williams, Ellington and Stacy

    WR might be ok if randle inherits a starting role but otherwise went from having a really strong receiving corps. to an avg one. Thinking about trying to swing a trade for some receiver depth. Necessary?

    Was thinking of offering something like Ridley/randle for aj green? Fair?
    Or would you try a rb straight up for a receiver? What kind of wr should I target from this stable of rb?

    Thanks!

    • Sky

      @KCC26: Yeah, you’ve got good depth at RB.

      Ridley’s been too hit and miss to get AJ Green in a deal like that but you can try. Try Ridley and Randle for Blackmon. Think underrated WRs

    Interesting sell call on Reuben. Just missed getting him off waivers last night, so dodged having another of my guys to sell. Glad I’m “allowed” to keep RG3 now. :)

    Could use advice on an interesting trade offer.I have been offered his Megatron for my Forte.

    This is PPR with bonuses for big games, so Megatron has been the 3rd most valuable player in our scoring settings the last two years (after Foster and Rice) and would be worth 2-3 pts more than Forte per week if he could return to form. So far, Forte has been more valuable, of course. Another issue is that we can keep a player instead of having your first round pick the next year, but Megatron is out of keeper eligibility and Forte is not.
    My Current team:
    Starters: RG3//Gordon, Nicks, Amendola//Foster, Forte//JReed
    Bench: Vick//MJD, Ellington//(open)
    I’d fill the open spot with a fill-in WR (MBrown, ESanders type) if I hold or RB (Bolden, JBell, Tate) if I make the trade.

    Given Megatron’s current injury, the makeup of my team (MJD/Ellington would have to start every week), and the keeper issues, I’m leaning to pass even though in a vacuum a healthy Megatron is probably more valuable than Forte. What would you do with the offer?

    • Yeshcheese says:
      (link)

      @the imp: pass, though tempting, I think giving up Forte forfeits this season and next (keeper status). Replacement level talent won’t cut it at RB.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Yeshcheese: Thanks for the reply. Confirms what I was thinking.

We actually have some really good local breweries in the area. But when you’re out on the disc golf course or don’t want to spend $6 for a pint, it’s Natty Boh over the other piss beer alternatives.

    Between bye weeks and upside waiver claims, I somehow have three QBs in a 12-team league (not what I want). Who should I drop to pickup a player at a more valuable position (someone just dropped McFadden): Ryan, Cutler, Foles?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Ian: DMC is on waivers? Try trading Matt Ryan first. If not, you can bump him. Sounds like the FA pool for QBs is reasonable.

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Yeah, I was shocked to see someone cut bait with McFadden to get through the bye week.

        I wouldn’t necessarily say the QB pool is “reasonable.” I lucked into Cutler last week to fill in for Ryan, and grabbed Foles this week for the upside of him usurping Vick. It’s just a 12-team league, but most people seem to be carrying 2 QBs so the top guys on waivers are Tannehill, Schaub, Geno, Palmer, and Freeman.

        Trading Ryan in a 2-1 seems like a great idea (provided I can get good value for him — I have the 11th waiver spot so there’s no guarantee I can backfill him with DMC), but if that doesn’t come together in time, does the dearth of QBs change your recommendation that I dump Ryan?

    Hola Sky. Was able to snag both Allen AND Foles off the waiver wire, oh happy days.

    Cox is still out there, would you roster him over Jacobs, Terrence Williams, or Roy Helu? I’m deeper at RB then WR but I like to try to pick up the best guys, despite roster needs – helps prevent other teams from having them! Helu is merely a handcuff for an owner I don’t like.

    Hello Sky,

    I have a really strong group at WR: AJ Green, Larry Fitzgerald, Desean Jackson, and Miles Austin.
    At the moment, Austin is my only bench WR since I am playing all three other WR suing one as Flex.

    My concern is that my only one WR bench has health issues as well.

    So, do you recomend dropping Austin in favor of:
    Kendall Wright, Jacoby Jones, Dobson, LaFell, Kris Durham, or Emmanuel Sandres.

    Or should I let this week play out as monitor the situation next week? I’m first out of 12 at the moment.

    My Rb are week apart from Jamal Charles – Fred Jackson, Green-Ellis, Jazquizz Rodgers, Bryce Brown, and I recently picked up Jonathan Stewart after striking out in picking up Cowboys Randle.

    What’s your take?

    Thanks

    Sky,

    Two questions for you.

    My roster in a 10 team QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, W/R, TE league is as follows:
    QB: Cam, Vick
    RB: Spiller, SJax, D. Murray, Moreno, Bryce Brown
    WR: B Marsh, Garcon, VJax, Mike Wallace, Bowe, Boykin
    TE: Thinking of dropping Cook for Jordan Reed

    I’m being offered CJ, Lamar Miller and Charles Clay for Knowshon. Thoughts?
    and
    Do you like Jordan Reed over Jared Cook right now?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Wilsonian says:
      (link)

      @Rocky: I’ll let Sky look at the trade question. I’d be inclined to stick with Moreno right now. But I’d definitely drop Cook for Reed. Did the same thing yesterday.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Rocky: Reed over Cook, definitely

      I like Lamar & CJ but Knowshon’s production is a solid top 10 RB, maybe even top 7 ROS if he stays healthy. Can’t throw that out. I’d hold there.

  26. Fart Monk says:

    Would you prefer harvin or roddy white? My team is likely playoff bound, but has been performing average thus far.

    • Sky

      @Fart Monk: White’s closer to returning to the field so it’s White for me.

  27. All this talk of Nicks potentially losing his starting gig makes me want to start Alshon this week. What do you think?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @James R: Weird…if he does that, I’m definitely changing my tune about Randle. At this point, I’d give Alshon a go because the matchup is pretty good.

  28. Bill Lumbergh says:

    Looking ahead to Week 8.. My TE’s are Gates, Cook & Graham.

    Gates and Graham are on a buy next week, leaving me with Cook vs. Seattle.

    I’m pretty sure I can get Heath Miller for Cook straight up with a guy in my league who was big on cook coming into the season.

    Do it?

    • Wilsonian says:
      (link)

      @Bob Sacamano: that or look for Jordan Reed. If he’s available, just kick Cook to the curb for him. I did it yesterday and it was refreshing.

    Need some wavier wire help. Which RB should I pick up? Looking ROS.
    RB scoring: 25 yd = 1 pt, TD = 6 pt. (TD heavy league)

    Zac Stacey
    Ryan Mathews
    Brandon Jacobs
    Joseph Randle

    • Wilsonian says:
      (link)

      @Randy: ROS gotta be Stacy or Mathews. I’d try to get both of them, but it depends on who you’re dropping and what needs you have.

      • Randy says:
        (link)

        @Wilsonian: I’d be dropping Woodhead 1st, and next to be dropped would be McGahee. My other RBs are D Martin, DMC, & Lamar Miller. Being a TD heavy league, those fellas haven’t helped me alot. Just trying to build depth so I have options. If I dropped Woodhead for Mathews, would you drop McGahee for Stacy or Jacobs? Thanks!

  32. Moscowitz says:
    (link)

    Hey Sky,

    Boykin or Douglas? I am leaning towards Boykin. The simple fact alone that he recieves his passes from Rogers for a pass happy team gives him an edge. What do you think?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Moscowitz: Really depends on if White plays. Boykins in a better offense for that reason for sure but he’s the 3rd or 4th option. Douglas’ volume alone could push him into WR3 territory.

    I have a TON of friends who think Miller Lite is the end all to the world of beers. Drives me insane. You know what else about Miller Lite drives me insane? The damn “more taste” commercials. Since when does more taste mean better taste? Doesn’t better taste mean better taste? 3 year old cheese that’s been cooking in my car probably has more taste than the Kraft sliced crap you can get at the grocery store, but that definitely doesn’t mean better. Sorry, just thought I’d join in on the rant against Miller Lite. Don’t get me wrong, when I’m looking for a drunk, and the stuff is free, I won’t turn my nose up to it for long, but free beer is free beer.

      @Wilsonian: Oh sure. I’m in Oregon – microbrew nation – so it’s just not cost effective enough for me to buy a lot of the mass-produced when I only need to spend a buck more on a better 6-pack. I drank a Keystone light here recently because it was free. I only had one, though…couldn’t go any further.

      • Wilsonian says:

        @Sky: ah Keystoners. We used to drink that stuff like it was going out of style when all you wanted was a drunk. $10 a 30-pack? Yes please. I’ve had a few of them here and there over the years lately and they’re pretty terrible. I try to stick to the good stuff now when I only have a few a week. When I used to have a few an hour, the ‘Stones worked out well.

          Ha, yeah I hear ya. I can’t do more than 2 before I start feeling like I need to doze off. Of course, that comes with the fact they’re 6%+ usually with craft beers.

    Pick two in a 1 point PPR league for the rest of season.

    DeAndre Hopkins, Miles Austin, Harry Douglas and Kendall Wright

    My starters are Dez, TY, Shorts, Hartline and Keenan Allen

    Same league… Drop Jared Cook for Rudolph, Cumberland, Celek or Clark?

    Same league… McGahee or Ellington?

    And lastly, a guy in my league has both Gates and Julius Thomas. He also has a depleted receiving corp which just lost Cobb. Which of my above WR would you trade to get Gates or Thomas?

    • Sky

      @malamoney: Douglas because of volume

      I’d play matchups at TE. Haven’t done my research this week but Rudolph might be intriguing.

            Word, have a good one

  43. MattTruss223 says:
    (link)

    I hear ya on the “Buy Blackmon”, but have you taken a peak at his schedule after this week? Here’s why I’m gonna look to sell him after he (hopefully) puts up another nice game against SD:

    SF (obviously a tough matchup), Bye Week, @TEN (2nd fewest points allowed to WRs so far/Alterraun Verner), ARI (Patrick Peterson/Honey Badger), @HOU (fewest points allowed to WRs/Jonathan Joseph), @CLE (4th fewest points to WRs/Joe Haden), Nice match-up w/BUF in week 15 finally, and then TEN again week 16.

    This is assuming if he keeps rolling and Shorts is banged up, he’s gonna draw the opposition’s top CB. A likely scenario I say. Maybe he’s good enough to beat it, I honestly haven’t watched many JAX snaps, but plan to rewatch the DEN game for scouting purposes. I’d just rather sell high and go with an easier route to success.

    I’m thinking of trying to move Blackmon for Gronk after this week. You’re probably not too high on that move though huh? I nabbed Blackmon off waivers week 3 for $31. Flipping a WW grab for Gronk seems like a killer move to me. Especially with the schedule Blackmon faces. Risky? Sure, but risky moves win championships. We’ll see, just wanted to chime in w/my 2 cents. Keep up the good work Sky.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @MattTruss223: I’m a huge Blackmon fan (when he’s on the field). The matchup stuff wouldn’t deter me. Henne can get him the ball and he’s going to target him 15-20 times a game.

      That said, in your case, since you picked him off waivers, flipping him for Gronk is something I would do. It’s like getting him for free.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @MattTruss223: The Gronk trade is fair if you have the WR depth to look past it. I think Blackmon can play above the matchups and is a big reason I’m calling him a buy.

      • MattTruss223 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I’ve got D.Thomas, DeSean and Josh Gordon as my starting WRs, with Miles Austin on the bench. I lose a smidge of depth, but not too bad. I think I can handle the hit OK.

        Fair enough on the match-ups, just wasn’t sure if you’d looked ahead on those, seems like you have you’re undeterred. Ditto for CramIt. I’ll rewatch the game for myself and maybe come to the same conclusion; that he’s a superior talent. That’s a tough slate though, no?

        CramIt – those were my thoughts exactly, essentially picking Gronk off waivers is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me!

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Yeah it’s a tough slate for sure. I could see a guy like say Boldin or Torrey getting shut down if a team keys in on them but also have to factor in volume. It’s like JAX starts the game off down 14-0 all the time. Always a chance to outplay bad matchups by that reason alone. Shorts return would also make for better targets moving forward if he’s healthy.

          • MattTruss223 says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Good point, thanks for your thoughts on the matter, always a pleasure

  46. Andrew says:
    (link)

    So the offer on the table right now is my Brandon Marshall for his Gronk and Shorts. That doesn’t overly excite me though because I grown quite fond of my bipolar friend. I am WR heavy (Marshall, DeSean, Garcon, K Allen, Randle) and starting Cook at TE (KILL ME). He has Cameron so Gronk is expendable. Would you make this trade?

    I was thinking about countering with DJax or Pierre plus one of my extra RB (Ivory, PTomas, McGahee) for Gronk and Lamar Miller. I dont think he would accept that though.

    Would you do Marshall + McGahee for Gronk + Miller? Or should I offer something else. Open to any opinions or suggestions.

    Thanks!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I think Gronk doesn’t provide enough guaranteed return on your investment. His ‘not ready yet’ stuff is a worry.

      I think I’d lay off the Gronk talks if Marshall is the guy you’re having to sell. Your friend needs to be reasonable about Gronk’s questionable value at this point to make you buy in.

      • Andrew says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Agreed. Would there be any combination of players on my team that you would be comfortable with trading for Gronk and Miller. I’m in 1st place right now getting no points from my TE position and I wanted to make a move that would put me over the top without giving up too much.

  47. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    I like Blackmon, too. The guy in last place picked him up before I could get to him. Dammit. I’m thinking of throwing him a more “known” name in Decker for him. Is this a lateral move, good move, or something that he’s probably going to laugh at anyway?

    0.5 PPR

    • Sky

      Not a lateral move to me. You’d be Mr. Jefferson there if you got him. Movin on up

    • Cram It says:

      @Wilsonian: Fairly lateral.

    • MattTruss223 says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: FWIW, I think Blackmon for Decker is an upgrade, I’d offer that up

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: @Cram It: @MattTruss223: Gonna toss the dreaded lineup out there to see what you guys all think. I’m in second (first in points, though) and trying to upgrade where I can. The guy who has Blackmon and Megatron is in last place and is looking to change things up. Unfortunately he has no RBs that I see as an upgrade to what I have. He has MJD, Woodhead, Quiz, SJax. Here’s my lineup, see any viable trades?

        QB – Stafford
        WR – Dez
        WR – Green
        WR – Garcon
        RB – Forte
        RB – Bernard
        TE – Black Unicorn
        W/R – Decker
        W/R/T – Gordon
        BN – R.Wilson
        BN – J.Graham
        BN – Sproles
        BN – CJnoK
        BN – Ellington
        BN – Harvin
        IR – A.Brown

        It’s 10 yards per point for receiving and rushing; 0.5 PPR; 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving, 100 yards rushing; 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving, 150 yards rushing.

        Receivers are easily as valuable as RBs, if not more so, in this league. If you can play 4-5 top WRs, you’ll just about win every week. I’m 4-2 with the most points and only have Forte as a guaranteed starting RB every week.

      Brown’s a nice haul and his bye week has passed so you’ll never have to sit him. Definitely a top 20 WR ROS in PPR. It’s risky relying on Foles/Eli but it’s a reasonable one. Go for it.

        @Sky: thanks, Sky.

        Only other risk is that my only TE will be Gronk, but he’s 100% reliable, right?

          Sky says:

          Ha, I won’t stamp my name on anything that calls Gronk 100% reliable. He worries me but he’s still better than Gresham by a million miles. SInce it’s a 2-1, couldn’t you simply pick up a stream-worthy TE if you need to?

    10 team PPR…

    Miles Austin or Golden Tate? Return yards factor in.

    Would you trade luck and Edelman for rg3? I’m receiving RG3 in the trade want to buy low on him a bit or do I need to ask him to throw in a wr like Greg Jennings it’s .5PPR.

    Thanks

      @J-FOH: He’s a nice safety net for when everything goes to hell. You can almost book 5/50 from him most weeks as your WR3. That consistency is hard to drop. I’d think of adding him as a sweetener if you’re looking to move on from him.

    Hey Sky! Thanks for your advice. Yesterday you helped me avoid jumping too quickly in a Larry Fitzgerald for Lacy trade.

    Looking at incorporating some of this advice to upgrade my WR. Currently have Nicks, Shorts, Allen, Jennings. I’m thinking I might try to do Nicks + MJD for Garcon + Miller. I have Forte, Lacy, and BJE for my other RBs. Format is .5PPR. Any comments?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      @Paul: Cool, glad to hear it.

      I’d take the Garcon side in a heartbeat.

      • Paul says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Thanks. Yea I’ll see what the owner says. Considering my issues at WR, I’m thinking of trading Forte to get more explosiveness. One trade I’m looking at is Forte + Jennings for Desean Jackson and Deangelo Williams.

        I’m trying to evaluate these on my own (1st year in football) and the way I see it, I’m getting a higher ceiling with Jackson. Jennings is name brand and might give better results once the QB situation settles. But I lose Forte who is consistent. Overall, being 0-6 I think I might be ok with accepting the trade.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I wouldn’t make a trade like that. Forte needs to net you a top 5 WR or a Blackmon/Garcon type and a better RB.

    Looking at 2 waiver moves this week. Drop Montee Ball for Nick Foles (I have Stafford and Vick). 2nd, dropping Cobb (our playoffs end week 15) and picking up Jordan Reed (just traded for Gronk and have Graham but may need Reed for this week if Gronk does not play). I am just hesitant on dropping Ball, I just keep thinking he is a Moreno injury from being a star. What do you think Sky? Should I make both moves, 1 or none of them?

    A little advice. I have managed to hang in my league at 3-3 thanks to some good luck, and big individual performances (Cam last week) My RB’s are S.Jax, McFadden,Stacey, and J.Rodgers. A team is looking to trade two 2nd level backs for one top level. He is ready to trade Fred Jax and Woodhead. I was thinking I’d offer S.Jax. I doubt he’d take the trade considering what a mess the Falcons are. He’d probably counter and ask for McFadden. Should I trade him for those two? Also I think Cam Newton is ready to go on a nice run. Should I drop Pettis for Lafell?
    thanks

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Harris: You should drop Pettis for anything, really. Sorry, my STL hate is showing. I don’t think that trdae helps you enough but only because I’m not a huge FJax guy. If it were another middle-tier guy, I might move off DMC for him. PPR? Woodhead’s a great value there.

      I always put a lemon wedge in mine. Maybe that’s why I enjoy it. They actually use synthetic hops its really a big step backward in the beer world.

      I actually have no idea. I seriously have a whole wall of beer at my store and the Buds/Coors of the world have this tiny nook that’s close to the door to the men’s restroom. I’m not saying that for comedic effect either, it’s just true

      • Big Magoo says:

        @Sky: I haven’t had a Corona in years, but I used to drop the lemon wedge in too. Most people use a lime, but I always thought it was better with lemon. When I was in Mexico a few years ago, most of the beer drinkers (including me) were drinking Dos Equis. Corona is considered low-end stuff down there.

        I do drink Miller Lite. Depends what your looking for. If you want something cheap that’ll go down smoothly and give you a decent buzz, it does the trick. If you want something that’s actually good, then I agree to look elsewhere.

    In a 10-team 1-ppr league. I need to shake up my team right now, which looks like this:

    QB Rodgers
    RB1 Powell
    RB2 Woodhead
    WR1 DThomas
    WR2 Torrey
    WR3 Wright
    WR/RB Durham
    TE: Clay
    WR/TE: Boykin
    DST: Bengals

    Bench: David Wilson, Cobb, Ivory, DMC, Ben Tate, Garrett Graham, Shorts

    I’m mulling over structuring some offers and feel I have to deal Rodgers to downgrade at QB. I also need get some better RB’s. Prior to this past week I traded VJax for Woodhead and of course VJax blows up. My team is officially blow-up proof.

    I want to take your advise on Miller. I think I can get him and a lesser WR for Torrey. His owner has been basically benching him all season and has Forte & Lynch and has Vereen coming back eventually, so he has depth. Was thinking of going for a package of Miller + either Nicks, ESanders, Jennings. What you think of this package? Who would you recommend if I can cut it?

    With Rodgers his value is down but I can still bank on the fact that he still has the talent around him minus Cobb (who hasn’t been that stellar before the injury) and he is a playmaker at the position which is rare. I made an offer to an owner trying to get Cutler, Moreno, and Blackmon for Rodgers, Torrey, DMC. I think this is an ideal trade for me but will be tricky to pull off and may have to include Thomas instead. He has Ryan and still views him as his #1. I would need to convince him that Ryan is in worse shape than Rodgers (as you have written) and that DMC and Torrey are not huge downgrades to get stability at QB which I don’t think they are.

    Also, have an offer on the table giving Rodgers & Torrey for Cam, Fred Jackson, and Spiller. What you think?

    Sorry for the lengthy post and thanks in advance.

    The Cam Newton ower badly wants Jordan Cameron. He also highly rates Ray Rice and all of my wrs not named Shorts.

    QB: Kaepernick
    RB:A Foster, R Rice, L Miller, P Garcon, B Pierce

      Andre would be the guy I’d move there.

      I don’t know who your other TE is and if you move Rice, who are you starting at RB? Garcon is a wide receiver and you’re not starting his backup every week. These trades seem to ruin your team in another area. I don’t see the value.

        @Sky:

        I agree that Andre is the lowest valued out of Gordon/Brown/Johnson

        At Te I would either have to make a trade (Rice+Wr for Jimmy Graham) or (WR for Gates) or pick up one of Celek, Olsen or Rudolph

        I am trying to move one of Ray Rice or Andre Johnson because Houston/Baltimore have a Bye next week…and at 3-3 my season might slip away if I dont win this week.

          You don’t have the RBs to move Ray Rice unless you’re getting an RB in return. Pierre Thomas is at best a flex most weeks. Your TE suggestion is a very large drop off and you’re still hurting yourself at a position you’re not very strong in. If you can move Andre to fill a need, do it but I think you need to minimize the amount of players you’re trying to involve.

    GB placing Cobb on short-term IR screws me trying to sell high on him to the upper-echelon deeper teams. What’s plan B?

    RB – Moreno, Spiller, Jones-Drew, Stacy, Randle
    WR – Peter Waiter, S Smith, V Brown, Boykin, Harvin, Cobb

    This league is 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (R/W/T), and the 3 WR is killing me.
    Do I move Peter Waiter for two mid-value guys? Do I package Jones-Drew & Smith/Brown for upper-mid value guy? I have one offer on table that trades Stacy for Rueben Randle. Seems pretty fair, but my backfield has been so bad, and I think Stacy continues to improve. Am I out of options?

      @Scott: Stacy for Randle is fair if the Nicks rumors persist but it’s a gamble.

      You’re not out of options, but you’re trying to worsen another part of your team to make up for the loss. Won’t add up in the long run. Keep your eyes peeled for high upside plays and drop Cobb for that.

      @poop: Always about the surrounding market. Surprised he was dropped. If you really need him, I’d be throwing around $23 out there. We’re halfway through the season but in a 10 team, it’s about having the best starting lineup. Usually depth doesn’t have as much relevance.

    Sky,

    My lineup in a standard 12 team .5 PPR is

    QB: Ryan, Cutler, Vick
    RB: Morris, Tate, B. Brown, Pierce, Snelling, J. Rodgers
    WR: Dez, Garcon, A. Brown, Kenbrell, E. Sanders
    TE: Finley
    IR: Vereen

    I’m being offered LeVeon Bell and Julius Thomas for Dez and Finley. His RB’s are Forte, Stacey, Bell, and Lacy, and Bolden. His WR’s are Megatron, Josh Gordon, Edelmen, Hopkins and Boykin and he also has Gronk at TE. I am obviously desperate for RB help as Alfred Morris is my only healthy starter at this point (had Bradshaw and Vereen) but I’m not sure that’s enough for my best trade chip, the 2nd best receiver in football, and TE that’s likely to see an uptick in looks… thoughts?

      That’s a bad trade for you. Just wade it out and start shopping for an upside RB pickup.

    Hypothetically (I know it depends on the league) what Wr or Rb could I get in return for a package of Ray Rice/Larry Fitzgerald

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Hey. I’d want a top 7 or 8 RB and a top 10 WR.

        Thanks!

          No prob

  81. Ron says:

    Who would you pick for this week and ROS out of this horrible list of TE’s?

    G. Graham, Reed, T. Wright, Fauria, Cumberland

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Reed with an eye on Wright’s usage this weekend w/Mike Williams back.

  82. Scott says:
    (link)

    I’ve been offered miller and boldin for gates and kembrell. My other te is gronk, and my starting wr right now at decker and denarius Moore or kembrell. What are your thoughts on the trade? I like having the thought of having miller and boldin as depth. My current rbs are Martin, shady, and lacy

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      That’s a fair trade as long as Gronk is back.

  83. Quentin says:
    (link)

    Thanks for answering comments so far down Sky.

    Are you buying an increase in Jermichael Finley’s role? I’m thinking he is solidly above guys like Heath Miller and Greg Olsen now.. yeah?

    • Quentin says:
      (link)

      Sorry, I noticed you called him a kinda/sorta buy, which I definitely agree with (expectations aren’t sky high like that one draft year..) just wondering if Finley’s value is being further pushed ahead of Olsen/Miller

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        No worries. He probably gets a shot at consistency but I don’t think he changes enough for me to get excited.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      He’ll see an increase but he’s still a so-so play week to week. Still competing with James Jones and Jordy there. I think it puts him in the discussion but I trust the other two more on a weekly basis. He reminds me of Vernon Davis: he allows himself to disappear out there.

  84. Mookiewilson says:
    (link)

    Pretty slim pickens for WR help with ‘dola and Cobb out. I currently have Terrance Williams slotted in WR3 for this week, do you prefer Dobson or mike Williams over him for at least this week? I also picked up Harvin as a futures play so I could drop him too.

    Thanks!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’m sorry, I don’t have the time to look ahead to matchups like that. If you list them, I could give an opinion but I can almost promise I’ll say no to Dobson. I’d hold onto Harvin, sounds like he could be back sooner rather than later.

      • Mookiewilson says:
        (link)

        @Sky:
        No prob, a more reasonable question might be, drop T. Williams(@phi) for M. Williams(@Atl) for this week?

        Thanks for answering

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Nope, I’ll take Williams there.

  85. Nightpandas says:

    Dropping Hartline for any of these freshly dropped folks: (.5ppr)

    Amendola
    M Williams
    R Randle

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Sounds like a pretty small league to be dumping Amendola. Is this a 10 team? Ten team, I’d stream Randle this week because of the matchup but hold on the others. 12 team, I’d rather hold.

    Should I trade Gio for Percy? Too much? Perhaps Gio & Danny for witten and Percy? Thanks Sky

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Sure you can’t get a healthy player in return for Gio? I like Harvin but he’s still a wildcard.

    Non-PPR, Ellington vs Seattle or Nicks vs Minn at Flex. Prefer RBs but obviously tougher matchup.

      I like Nicks there if the rumors of him losing snaps isn’t true.

    Good food for thought as always, Sky. Thanks. Your post begs this question: would you trade Matty Ice for RG3 straight up?

      without hesitation.

  93. guy says:
    (link)

    im hurting at WR in a .5 ppr and am looking for at least a WR 2 to sure it up, my team looks like this and was trying to one or 2 for a WR who should i be targeting if i were to move RG 3 or Sproles im at a loss i was banking on Bowe and Marshall being a pretty solid 1-2
    RG3, P. Rivers
    Marshall, shorts, bowe, douglas
    AP, Moreno, MJD, Sproles, B Jacobs
    Olsen, Gronk

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You don’t need to do any combos. depends on the needs of others. You have valuable assets. Try and move one of your QBs. Can try and move Sproles as well. If Shorts is healthy, though, your Harry Douglas pick up might pan out fine. You’d want a WR20 or better in return.

      • guy says:
        (link)

        @Sky: yeah i was leaning toward sending rivers to a kid with Kap and target either his Vjax or Garcon and another offer with Rivers for Reggie Wyane that kid has Luck, thanks for the advice

          No prob and good luck with those.

    Really enjoy the posts. Trade thoughts on getting Jamal Charles or McCoy for mike Wallace, Steve smith and mjd? I have josh Gordon, Keenan Allen as 1 and 2 with Terrance Williams and Harry Douglas in flex. Also have Stacy and Vereen in a few weeks. Ap is my other back.

    • Sky

      I’d take either of those two. Probably LeSean.

  99. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Reposted from Loudon’s post, looking for multiple perspectives:

    I have two bad (2-4 and 1-5) teams that need wins this week. In both cases I have Wilson at starting QB (coincidence?) with Pryor on bye/bench. Would you roll with Wilson or attempt to swing a low-level trade for a Cutler type for this week?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t say Wilson is the problem but he definitely hasn’t excelled either. Depends on the trade but I’m not against gaining a Cutler type

      Kinda flat on that honestly. I get the keeper perspective but feel you should get better for Foster

      • Chaz says:
        (link)

        @Sky:
        Im a fringe contender at best this season. Guys in my league overpay for young stars and give up easily on guys like Foster because of their age. You can see which way im leaning. You dont think Trent will pick it up in the 2nd half?

  102. Principle Blackman says:
    (link)

    would you want AJ Green or Demarco Murray ROS? 12-team, PPR/.5PPRA.

    Thanks

    • Principle Blackman says:
      (link)

      @Principle Blackman: If it matters, I have Murray. My Other RBs are T-Rich, Sproles, Mathews, Ellington, & Snelling. My WRs are D-Jax, Stevie Johnson, Terrence Williams, & Kris Durham. Starting 3WRs and 2RBs.

      • Principle Blackman says:
        (link)

        @Principle Blackman: N/M it’s not even close. Sorry, just writing the question kind of helped me realize it. I’m accepting Green and hoping nobody vetoes. The PPRA is what makes it at all close, but, man, even if he comes back in the next 2 week, Murray is still a walking time bomb. I should have never traded for him in the first place. It was a move made in exasperation or desperation at how my season has been going, or both; I’m not sure.

    Hey man, everytime I look at my time I question how I’m 4-2 in a 10-team league so I think I need to make moves to keep this team afloat! Here is my starting line-up for week 7;

    QB-R. Wilson
    RB- Bush & Richardson
    WR – Calvin Johnson, Alshon Jeffrey & Terrence Williams
    TE- H. Miller
    Flex-LeVeon Bell
    K-Nick Folk
    Defense-Broncos
    Bench: Roddy White, Powell, Stevie Johnson, Hartline, K. Thompkins & J. Bell

    I have been thinking making moves on some free agents but I can’t decide who is expendable on my bench in this 10-team non-PPR league at this point…I’m thinking either Hartline or J. Bell (handcuff to Reggie but I don’t know if I can afford the roster spot)..

    free agents include Michael Floyd, Harry Douglas, Snelling, Ellington, K Wright, LaFell, Tolbert, N. Washington….do you like any of those guys as a plug-in for this upcoming week or just in general for ROS? I have a waiver claim in for Andre Ellington (released this Friday) dropping Hartline…

    Any other moves I should consider & what do you think of grabbing Ellington for Hartline?

    Thanks!

    Hi Sky,

    Which team would you rather have going forward? 3wr, 2rb, 1flex. 0.2PPR

    - Welker, Gordon, Hartline, Sanders, Amendola; Forte, Rice, Spiller, Miller, Ridley
    - Welker, Gordon, Blackmon, Hartline, Amendola; Forte, Rice, Miller Ridley.

    I guess what this really asks, do you think Spiller will break out the second half of the season?

    Thanks.
