Well, it was about as bad a week 2 as it could get.  Desperately needing some offense from anyone besides Marshawn Lynch, the 49ers/Seahawks game turned out to be a dud and my terrible Panthers found yet another way to lose.  Lucky for me, David Wilson was awful yet again, finally putting the nail in the coffin for Nick’s hot tub.  In a great twist of irony, the NY David Wilson’s face the horrible Panthers in week 3 and I actually think he’s an upside flex play.  It’s over with now.  Fin.  Nick and I then go over all of week 2’s final scores and break down our thoughts, I recap the RCL top scorer through Sunday, and Sky and Murph bring us some waiver pickups and the carnage report.  Good luck to everyone tonight if your game is hinging on Monday Night Football and good luck in week 3!

    Hey JB, I’m trying to buy low on David Wilson, I was big on him before the season started
    But now I’ve tempered my expectations. I’m offering marlon brown and one of either Chris ivory/deangelo Williams/knowshon Moreno for David Wilson and Steve smith.. Which back would you trade away first out of that trio, and is there any you wouldn’t trade for Wilson/smith? I offered ivory first but might have to offer Moreno instead. It’s a .5 PPR. Thanks!
    Qb – Brady
    Wr – Calvin
    Wr – roddy
    Rb – forte
    Rb – deangelo
    Te – cook
    Flex – Moreno
    Bench – rueben randle, Bryce brown, ivory, vereen, leveon bell, marlon brown

      @Oppo Taco: I’d prefer Ivory and Brown if you could swing it. I’d trade DeAngelo I think before Moreno. Fully buying Moreno getting a lot of work, and more effective than DWill. Still think Id do all 3, Smith is a solid WR and you need a stud fill in for White right now.

    now that we’ve seen some injuries, how would you rank the following bench RBs
    For Ros and non ppr
    Kendal hunter, Woodhead, bolden, Starks, Ellington, todman, forsett, Donald brown, jacquizz and Snelling

    Also is Charles clay for real in Miami?

    Thanks!

      @Zandy: A lot depends on injuries, Starks right now, then probably Ellington then Brown

    Posted this question in the other thread, but apparently Sky left the office early today.

    3 Trade Offers:
    A) My Graham and Moreno for his AJ Green
    B) My Graham and L. Bell for his Fitzgerald and Jordan Cameron
    C) My Graham and Moreno for his Brandon Marshall

    *I’ve got Gronk on my bench and could pick up Bennett off waivers for a week. My WR’s are Bowe, Antonio Brown and Edelman, so that’s why I was looking at upgrading the position in a PPR. Thanks.

      @Black & White: A. Meh, Graham is an obvious beast, hold B. I like that one C. Meh, like Green a shade more so no there too. Without knowing your RB situation, I think you could get Green or Marshall for Graham off that huge week straight up. I’d exore that first

        @JB Gilpin: nah its all good. Where the hell did cook go? Thought there was no way I could go wrong there. Think thomas gets the starting gig til he proves me wrong frim now on

          @Scott Steelers: Well the Falcons had just come off a week 1 where they focused on and limited Jimmy Graham, so seeing what the Rams did I think they implemented a similar defensive approach.

      @Frank White: Hey Frank I would nab both if I could, Royal first. Would drop Bradford and Thomas

    More of a broader scale question, but I know experts always preach patience. However, in my 12-team league I’ve started 0-2 thanks largely to starting David Wilson twice and playing against Kap week 1 then Vick week 2. I figure a playoff team in a 12 team league will have to have at least 7 wins. So already I’d need to go 7-3 through the rest of the regular season just to hope to get in. Shouldn’t I be starting to panic?

      @Josh: If your team is scoring points, I don’t think you need to yet. As much as I hate Wilson, I still think he’s a flex this week and help deliver a win.

    Uh, I’m like a beginner in Fantasy Football so this might be a stupid question.
    Am I supposed to pick up Christine Michael if I have Lynch?

    I can drop B Bolden or P Thomas for him.

    Thanks!

      @Hans: Since MIchael is not touching the ball and Turbin is, I don’t think it’s 100% critical, however I would for both of those guys.

    Got offered Roddy White for my David Wilson…How concerned should I be about his ankle? Would you do this? He is also has Reggie Wayne to target.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @bryan: Tough one, two of the biggest busts so far, but I probably would take White, especially in a PPR, with the knowledge it might be another week or two. One bad fumble and Wilson is out of touches ROS.

    Drop Winslow to pick up Clay, Eifert, or Fleener?

      @Mark: Yeah I would, think maybe upside of Eifert
