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

We might as well just call all weekly rankings ‘play whoever you own against the Jacksonville Jaguars’.  Yes, I’d start Mike Glennon against them at this point.  Maybe even Ryan Fitzpatrick.  That’s how dirty it is in Jagsville.  But the reality is, Ryan Mathews had himself a fine day on MNF, gaining over 100 yards as the Chargers ran the clock down against a surprisingly inept Colts offense.  Though he didn’t find the end zone, I can’t see how the Chargers don’t take advantage of both him and Woodhead as they control the game.  Sure, it might become a bit of a shootout – I trust the Chargers defense about as much as any hollywood gossip mag at the checkout counter.  Tori Spelling’s face is melting off due to too much surgery and thus has moved to Minnesota for the cooler climate?  Ok, not likely but if that keeps her out of future movies, I could think of worse things.  Eh, where was I?  Oh yeah, start all your Chargers and enjoy it while you do it.  Actually, there are a lot of great matchups this week for guys that are sometimes fringe starters.  Alshon Jeffery looks primed for a good day against that Redskins secondary and while Jordy battle Haden, I think James Jones has himself a mighty fine day as a great secondary option for Rodgers.  Josh Freeman is being given one of the worst secondaries and I think he takes full advantage.  If Jerome Simpson is still floating around out there, it’d be a good week to pick him up in my book.  Important notes to note: if Roddy White is a no go, you’re gonna want your Harry D in the lineup for volume reasons and it makes Toilolo an intriguing add in deep leagues.  Outside of that, Jordan Reed is quietly sitting just ahead of Rudolph.  I like both having a shot at big weeks if you’re stuck with muck at TE or a Jimmy Graham bye week.  And with that, let’s kick the jabba to the curb and see what we got.  Here’s our week 7 rankings for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

    Grabbed Ridley in Waivers n can use him or my busted CJ.5K. (Have McCoy and Waiting on Vareen to return. So getting the handcuff might work long term here. With the issues with receivers) do u play Ridley over Chris Johnson. PPV league. We are 5-1.

    Loing term could move cj2k and Josh Gorden for Doug martin owner thoughts have depth after gronk retuurns, garcon,deshawn Jax (lost cobb) n grabbed finley last weekm We play 3 receiver no TE poisition needed.so wouuldhave gronk garcon n desean jax?

      @jeff g: Gotcha covered with the rankings above.

      This second part is really messy and confusing. You asking if you should trade Gordon and CJ0K for Doug Martin? I’m assuming ‘no TE position’ means you have WR/TE, not 3 wide receivers…eh, could you clean this up, it’s really hard to answer this question without some clarity.

      • jeff g says:
        (link)

        @Sky: teams have 5 receivers they can comprosed of any combonation of TE’s or WR and we play 3 of them. So I have gronk n finley gordon garcon deasean jax (cobb on IR for my team).

        As 4 ridley vs cj this week neither guy is ranked in your rankings

        Thnx brother

    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 (particularly for Megatron or Blackmon?

    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.

    • Yeshcheese says:

      @Wilsonian: you just need a huge upgrade at RB2. Target woodhead

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Yeshcheese: do you think I need him with having Sproles, too? He would be my RB2 with Bernard. He’s just on BYE this week.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: You’re getting to the point where you’re trying to make trades to make trades, my man. Look at your WRs. Do you see a reason to sit any of them? Only way you’re getting Blackmon and makes it worthwhile is moving Decker for him straight up. If not, then you should probably just hold. Just because they’re in last place doesn’t remove their brain cells.

      Gio is the 12th best back according to yahoo. I think he’s just fine as your RB2.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I’m a chronic rosterbater. Happens in baseball, too. I’m always trying to make the team better. I’m overall happy with my team, but I’m not married to it if something can make it better. But I completely see your point.

        I also really like Gio, and I have Sproles, so I don’t think the upgrade there is absolutely necessary, either.

        As usual, I appreciate the advice. I may send Decker for Blackmon and premise it on the good team vs. bad team and see if he bites. If not, I may offer Decker up for Allen to roll the dice. Guy with Allen has Peyton and is a Colts/Manning fan. So he would probably take that deal.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Yeah, second play there is more risky but Decker for Blackmon wins for you in the long run, IMHO.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I sent the Blackmon offer. We’ll see if anything comes of it. I doubt it, and if not, I’m not going to lose too much sleep over it.

    Great work as always sky. Tough decisions for me this week. Losing Amendola and Julio in back to back weeks has really drained some life out of my team. 12 teM. 1 point ppr league. IDP league as well(which keeps me in it every week.) My questions are…

    At wr if you had to pick one to start.. dobson or miles austin or kerley.

    At flex ill have to play a rb.. so please help pick 3.. Ridley TRich Gio Ellington

    Thank you in advance… also will Julio be the dynamic player he was.before another foot injury. This league is a keeper league and im holding Jones. Missing him so so much haha

    would you trade spiller, josh gordon, douglas, ellington for Jamal charles, percy harvin?

    my other two rbs are bush and gio and other wr are marshall, balckmon, and wes….

    I think it would solidify my RB’s and can use gio as flex and then use percy or edeleman whose on my bench as the 4 wr, should i do the trade or hope the spiller production increases?

  15. Ian says:

    Hey Sky, I’m looking for some trade advice.

    My team is deep at running back, but could definitely use an upgrade at WR and/or TE (12-teamer, non-PPR). There happens to be another owner who has great WR/TE, but needs running back help.

    I’m hoping to acquire DeSean and Bennett in exchange for Decker and one of my running backs, and I think Decker + Lamar Miller will be my opening offer. Do you agree that would be a coup for me if he accepts? Also, if he doesn’t want Miller, how high would you be willing to go up my RB list before such a deal stops being advantageous? Thanks!

    RB: AP, Moreno, Spiller, Ridley, Le’Veon Bell, Miller
    WR: Nelson, Decker, Allen, ‘Dola, Harvin
    TE; G. Graham

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @Ian: No higher then Bell IMO.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Ian: I like Miller more than Bell by a good margin. I wouldn’t call it a coup because the TE you’re getting isn’t a Jordon Cameron-type. I’d call it fair if it’s Bell.

      No chance Reed is available? Graham isn’t all that bad of a TE to start. both picks in the redzone last week were thrown to him.

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Reed is available, although I’d hesitate to drop any of my WRs or RBs for him, so it’d have to be Graham and then roll with Reed the rest of the way (or continue to play the waiver wire TE game). I was planning to give Graham one more week to break out as the Texans’ safety valve, but I can switch to Reed if you think he’ll be better ROS.

        Mostly, though, I’m trying to figure out how to turn my RB depth into a stronger starting lineup. I’m 3-3, and having the highest scoring bench each week hasn’t earned me any additional wins. Any advice on which position I should try to upgrade, or any particular depth guys you think I should try to package in a deal?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Ian: TE is your weakness. I’d either go after Reed or I’d look to trade up at that position with one of your RBs but I doubt you get a big name without giving up a big name in return. You’re probably stuck trading down at TE which is why I’m suggesting giving Reed a go.

          The only other thing you could do is go after a big name WR but overall I like the set you already have.

          As always, you have RB depth until you don’t and wish you had it.

          • Ian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Thanks for the thorough analysis, Sky. After mulling it over and looking at what other teams in my league have/need, I have three more ideas I’d love to get your opinion on.

            Should I pursue any of the following?
            1. Offer Moreno and another RB for Charles and Gates
            2. Swap a RB for Gordon to strengthen my WR corps (is he enough of an upgrade over what I have?)
            3. Drop Graham to pick up Reed

    Morning Sky,

    So based on the rankings, I’m favoring Keenan Allan over Andre Johnson. Also, I’m going to be favoring Lamar Miller over Trent Richardson. That leaves me with one spot open in the flex for either Trent or Andre.

    Which one do I go with? I can’t believe that I’m going to be benching one of the two!

    thanks in advance…

    • willy says:

      @willy: standard league btw…

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @willy: I think it’s gotta be Trent. I know its non-PPR but I think he gets a few out on the flat this week and finally gets things going. I haven’t given up on that boy!

        • willy says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Thank you… I was leaning towards Trent because of Andre’s KC matchup, but you have re-assured me.

          So… it seams like Andre is trending downwards. should i try trading him for an upgrade elsewhere? Here’s the roster. It’s pretty stacked (10 teamer):

          Rivers
          Cruz
          J Nelson
          Keenan Allen
          J Charles
          Lamar Miller
          Vernon Davis
          Trent Richardson or Andre Johnson (flex)
          Gostkowski
          KC
          Bench:
          T Williams
          Hartline
          Foles
          H Miller
          P Harvin
          Vereen (IR)

          don’t see many holes… I’m thinking about holding, just in case Keenan Allan drops off. Then again, I figure if I’ve got Andre on the bench, would be nice to upgrade somewhere else. Or maybe I just hold and enjoy my depth? I’m going back and forth with the pros and cons… please set me strait!

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            I’m not seeing a clear need for you to upgrade anywhere. Think I’d rather have Andre as depth unless you can move off Andre and get another WR that’s in his draft day price range but that’s gonna be tough.

  21. Clint (aka Pablo Death) says:
    (link)

    Dwayne Bowe #66? Wow, just..wow. Not that I disagree with it but my, how the mighty have fallen. I’m starting to think Bowe is going to get more use later in the season than now. I haven’t watched the Chiefs games this year but I get the feeling they really haven’t been in a game yet where they’ve had to throw to keep up. Weeks 11-13 they play the Broncos twice and I have a feeling he’ll be of use there in that capacity. Even not considering that, are they really gonna pay this guy $50mil to run routes as a decoy?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Clint (aka Pablo Death): I wouldn’t even call him a decoy at this point. Alex Smith just doesn’t throw downfield at all and like you said, hasn’t really had to. It’s all slants and screen passes. Once the Chiefs face a tougher offense, he gets a little more interesting but Alex Smith still isn’t keeping up in an arms race. Sad days to be a Bowe owner.

    Hey Sky,

    I’m 2-5 with what I thought was an awesome team. Made some trades that I thought would make me even better, but I just can’t seem to win the close ones. Could you let me know where you see holes and how you see my starting lineup this week…
    Here’s my team:

    QB-Rodgers
    RB-Martin
    RB-Spiller/Joseph Randle
    WR-Bowe/Hartline
    WR-Harry Douglas
    TE-Gronk/Reed
    Flex-Lamar Miller/Ben Tate

    Bench: Vick, Andre Brown, Amendola

    My main questions are who I should start at WR, RB, Flex. Should I also try to trade 1-2 RB’s for a top WR?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

        @pakestwo: Your WRs are pretty underwhelming especially since you’re missing Amendola. Hopefully a larger role for Douglas helps a little but you don’t have any studs at that position.

        You need your RBs to step up and perform at a higher level before you try to trade them. Your team looks a bit worrisome, I’m not gonna lie.

        I ranked guys above for ya for your rankings question. Start Miller over Tate.

    Any reason for liking Shorts as high as #21 WR in PPR this week?

    I’m not confident that he plays with his injury this week. I currently have Edelman starting over him in my flex.

    Would you start MJD over both of them?

    Thanks

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @eltoo: I can’t rank assuming he’s not playing and if he is, the matchup is really good. If he’s a scratch on Sunday or listed as limited, I’ll move him down.

      I’d just stick with Edelman there

    .5 PPR

    Worth dropping Cook ( I have Reed) for Simpson? Worth it when I can just play K Wright in my flex ?

    Also, what are your thoughts on Ryan Mathews ROS,? Icould possibly trade for him for some depth at RB to a team that has called it quits for this season already

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @J Money: Yeah, I think so.

      I like Mathews but he’ll always be a matchup-based play. Need to see him around the end zone more before I call him anything more than a low end RB2 option but I still like him overall.

    Got James Graham on BYE. Playing the Black Unicorn who is slightly banged up. Do I drop him for Jordan Reed to go against my beloved Bears? The Unicorn is on BYE next week, so he’s only a fill-in for this week. If Graham remains out next week, he’ll have to hit the wire.

    0.5 PPR

          Haha, yeah I just like Reed’s involvement in the offense. He feels like the second option behind Garcon. I don’t know if I can say that about Bennett at this stage. Bennett probably gets more RZ looks but I think Reed has the better chance at providing you a good floor.

            Sky says:
            (link)

            @Sandy: Like Reed more. It depends on Ridley’s performance ROS whether it’s a good trade for you. He just had one good week. You’re giving up a lot of consistency in Witten/Sproles. It could be an upgrade at RB, it could come back to haunt you. It’s hard to gauge at this time.

    Hey Sky,

    I’ve got Gio Bernard in my flex this week but I’m contemplating starting Keenan Allen over him. My gut tells me Gio but Keenan has a nice matchup this week. Thoughts?

      @Richie: I think you have to stay Gio there.

  32. Mr. Rickey says:

    Need to start 2RBs, 2WRs and 1 Wr/RB Flex – non-ppr – from this group:
    Jamal Charles
    MJD
    Jacquizz
    Nicks
    Terrance Williams
    Emmanuel Sanders

    Who would you sit?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      @Mr. Rickey: I’d say 99% of your question you’re covered with the rankings. Come back and hit me up for your flex after that.

      • Mr. Rickey says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Well, looks like it comes down to Jacquizz or Sanders for a flex. Sanders is ranked lower but I might like his match-up a little better, although it could be a low scoring game. Jacquizz may get more work with Julio gone and he is the lead back, which is a good thing. On the other hand, Atl is pretty much done for the season and Jacquizz looks like a tired plodding old man. This is depressing – which one do you like?

        • Cram It says:

          @Mr. Rickey: On the 5th hand…

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Ha, I’ll put upside at flex and say Sanders. I don’t really think Rodgers is a lead back in any way/shape/form. Probably splits with Snelling right down the middle.

  33. Nick says:
    (link)

    My team is:

    QB – Brady, Luck
    RB – McCoy, Forte, CJ1K, Woodhead, PT, Ellington
    WR – Decker, Gordon, Shorts, Blackmon
    TE – Graham

    I offered Brady, CJ1K, and Decker for Brees, Roddy, and J Finley. He said he was going to accept, but I might be able to get Boldin. I can grab E Sanders or Reuben to fill in Decker’s spot. Should I go for upside with Roddy or get the serviceable guy in Boldin?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d go serviceable there.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Do you make that trade? I also just got an offer for romo and Marshall for Brady forte and decker. This is a ppr league.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Sorry, I actually wouldn’t. Most times, you start going to 3 or more players, it’s because the trade isn’t going to be even and I’d say that trade isn’t even.

          You’re giving up too much there too.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Sky: This will be the last question. I can get Marshall for Forte. If I can talk the Brees owner into Decker and Brady for Brees and Finley, and I complete the Forte trade, that would give me:

            QB: Brees, Luck
            RB: McCoy, CJ1K, Ellington, Woodhead, B Brown
            WR: Marshall, Gordon, Blackmon, Shorts,
            TE: Graham, J Finley.

            With those trades, I’ve upgraded QB and WR, I feel good about my RBs after week 8 with CJ1K getting the easy schedule, and I grab a serviceable TE for Graham’s bye week and in case his injury turns out worse than expected. I get 6 points for pass TDs, and I’m sick of picking the wrong QB every week in my Brady/Luck roulette. I lost by 0.5 point last week with that last INT by Luck. This is also a 10 team league, so I feel like I need to just try get the best starting lineup and not worry about my RB depth anymore. I’ll still have 1 stud and 3 good to great plays the rest of the year. I am probably going to go through with the first trade either way when I switch out Boldin since I think he and Decker are about even and I’m giving up a backup RB for a backup TE and upgrading at QB.

            • Cram It says:

    I just made a trade that I feel is a must cause my running and receiving are mostly dying out. I traded Doug Martin and Terrance Williams for Garcon. Do you think it’s a good trade in my situation??? Martin isn’t producing and I still have Sprolles, MJD and Ellington but with Garcon, from what I’m reading is hot, It should beef up my WR’s and my RB’s will stay the same basically

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Don’t really like that trade. Still believe Martin turns it around. And you gave up two players to get Garcon. I’d call it an overpay in my book.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        I offered another trade giving MJD, Pierre T n Bowe for Eddie Lacy and Greg Jennings and he counter offered Leveon Bell instead of Lacy… Should I take that trade?? My Rb’s left would be Sprolles, Ellington and whoever I get

    With Harvin (hopefully) returning soon and Edelman sitting on my bench, would you be comfortable moving Gordon or A. Brown (my WR2 and Flex most weeks in a 0.5 PPR) for RGIII? Starting Wilson at QB now, but am 1-5 and looking to move.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t. You’re telling me there are no stream-worthy options on waivers for QBs?

      • Steve Stevenson says:
        (link)

        @Sky: There are, but at 1-5 I’m aiming for the highest ceiling, and of the teams with high-end QBs in my league, this seems like the most likely trade partner (the guys with Peyton, Brees and Rodgers aren’t moving them, the guy with Cam and Rivers doesn’t respond to any form of communication, and the Brady, Stafford and Romo owners don’t need WR).

        I like Wilson, but am frustrated and leery of a Thursday night game with only a so-so matchup effectively leading to the loss that puts the final nail in my season tonight.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          And that’s fair…but I’m asking are any of the guys I ranked ahead of him for the week available on waivers?

    Going forward, who do you like better as Gronk insurance–Reed or Olsen? Have held Olsen, but picked up Reed for this week and certainly don’t want to hold 3 TE. Standard scoring.

    • Sky

      Depends on Olsen’s health. Still like him being a primary target for Cam but I don’t like him when he’s in a walking boot.

  38. Sean says:

    I have Gronk in my flex spot currently. Would you start Ellington tonight in said flex spot and give up on Gronk this week? I also have T. Williams or H. Douglas that could fill the flex if I chose to wait on Gronk’s status. So, safer to wait on Gronk and fill in with Williams or Douglas? Or just start Ellington tonight? What say you? Thanks.

  39. CarryYoTeamOnHisBackDoe says:

    For my 14-team standard league: At WR, I’m starting Decker, Wallace and Keenan Allen. At flex, I have Zac Stacy penciled in. Should Harry D or Greg Jennings be substituted in anywhere?

    Standard league. Have a spot at TE and at flex. Need to play either Jermichael Finley or Julius Thomas in TE and at flex, I can play the non-chosen TE or Keenan Allen. Finley might be used as WR, does that up his value? Who would you play based on that?

    • Sky

      I’d go Julius and Keenan there. Just not a big truster of Finley at this point

      Got rankings above for your RB/WR situation. Boykins for upside at Flex.

  64. Shake N Bacon says:
    (link)

    Last minute decision for tonight for my RCL PPR league. In the flex spot, would you rather have Andre Ellington going against the Seahawks tonight or Brian Hartline going against Buffalo on Sunday? After Ellington’s game last week I was primed to start him this week. But with it being a short week, TNF is where fantasy goes to die and the Seahawks stout defense, I’m considering benching Ellington for Hartline.

    If Jared Cook goes off this weekend (after I dropped his ass for Wright) I’m going to freak the fudge out.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’m having a hard time thinking Ellington has a huge day. Think overall Hartline’s floor is higher so if I’m playing it safe it’s Brian.

      I’ve dropped him everywhere. I’d freak the fudge out too. Only I didn’t say fudge.

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Yeah I agree with you. The more I think about that Seahawks defense and Carson Palmer starting at QB for the Cardinals, the more I don’t think Ellington will do much tonight. Hartline it is!

        What do you think about this trade I made before last week’s games?

        I traded:
        Jordy Nelson
        MJD

        I got:
        Moreno
        Keenan Allen

        I know, it looks way lopsided on the Jordy side. But Moreno and Allen scored more than Jordy and STD. I’m just glad to be done with anything Jaguars related. Plus I had WR depth and needed a steady RB2 every week.

        The TE pool in my RCL league is brutal. Friggin Gtoxitis who is destroying everyone picked up Jordan Reed. I swear, he’s becoming my arch-nemesis!

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Nah, not lopsided. Allen is a great upside play. I think at worst it comes out as a flat trade.

          Haha, no Wright? What about Rudolph? Ertz? Some interesting plays this week in my book.

          • Shake N Bacon says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Oh I picked up Wright. He was the best of the rest. Rudolph actually might be available. I don’t know. Freeman may use him as a safety valve.

            Yeah I was happy to get Allen. Hopefully he keeps it up!

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Yeah you’ll be fine at TE. Rudolph had a good week last week. Think the matchup is nice for him so I’m intrigued but Wright might just be the ROS answer there

  65. the imp says:

    The news on Vick and Amendola (being bad) and Harvin (being rready to practice next week and maybe play????) are making me think dangerously. I know Vick played well, but he is typically being ranked in the mid-teens ROS by the group think of experts since his job security and injury risks are real. At this point I am starting to think that Harvin and Vick are both “stashes” . The loss of Cobb, the lack of news on Amendola and some faith in RG3 and the QB waiver wire, lead me to be worried more about WR than QB for this group ROS: (I start 1 QB/ 3WR, short bench 12 team PPR):
    QB = RG3/Vick
    WR = Gordon/Nicks/ESanders/Amendola

    Would you continue to “stash” Vick or would you switch over to Harvin now?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Harvin

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks for the prompt reply. Had to choose before kickoff…so I chickened out a little and dropped Sanders for a couple days since I can probably pick him back up (or a player of similar ability) for Sunday. Still, it feels good to have upside instead of a sinking ship sitting on the bench.

            @Sky: Chicken and overly dedicated to certain players: not good traits for FF to be sure.
            My first year playing, the first step in overcoming a horrible draft was to get Percy off the wire after he was dumped for having a migraine. With Nicks acquired in a trade with Tebow my team lucked into making it to the semis. By picking up Harvin he is reuniting with Foster, Forte, and Nicks and hopefully comes in form in time to get me into the playoffs….we’ll see.

              • the imp says:
                (link)

                @Sky: I’m thinking that I might drop Ellington instead of Vick (behind Foster/Forte/MJD, start 2RB) for the weekend drop to pick up the fill-in WR. I don’t think it is just this one bad game making me think this. Many teams carry only 3RBs and I should be able to get a flexy type of RB back at some point. How would you play that?

                • Sky

                  Sky says:

                  I think Vick has lost his job and is tweeting like he knows it. Andre still has great ROS value, in my book. I’d still rather drop Vick.

        @Sky:
        1.already starting F-Jax due to the ranking. Who’s at flex, m.williams or c.johnson (TEN)?
        2. that’s why i drafted him, but he’s only gotten 69 yards on only 3 returns all year. even with that is he still over jacoby (def does punt and kick returns and generally gets around 9-13 pts a week from those)/h.miller

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          1) Man, I wish I could trust TEN to get CJ out in the flat more with passes. Fitz used to be so good with checkdowns, you’d think they’d weave it in more…I’ll say CJ but it’s strictly based on touches and Williams’ health.

          2) Rodgers is involved enough in the offense to make up for that compared to Jacoby. Just trust his baseline more. I’d still lean his way.

      in a PPR, I’d strongly suggest – if they’re not already nabbed – guys like Reed/Wright/Ertz. I can see you’re trying to upgrade TE. Might just wanna stream against good matchups, especially if those guys are available.

      Don’t tell Palmer that…He still looks like the great player he always has. That O-Line just doesn’t give time for plays to develop and for him to shake coverage, especially when defenses are keying in on him. I’d put him on the avoid list for now unless I get him dirt cheap.

    Hey Sky, I was just wondering if I could get your opinion on a trade

    12 team, Non PPR, 100+ Rushing/Receiving Yard Bonus, 300+ Passing Yard Bonus, 6 points per all TD league. Yahoo.

    Record: 4-2, 5th place

    QB: Aaron Rogers
    WR: Josh Gordon
    WR: Jordy Nelson
    RB: Adrian Peterson
    RB: Eddie Lacy
    TE: Julius Thomas
    W/R: Giovani Bernard
    W/R: Joseph Randle
    Bench: Zac Stacy
    Bench: Steven Jackson
    Bench: Jermichael Finely
    Bench: Julian Edelman
    Bench: Brian Hartline
    Bench: Christine Michael

    I think overall my team is pretty good but I feel like I have a lot of quality RBs on my bench that could be used to upgrade my actual line up.

    Trade 1: Josh Gordon, Jermichael Finley, and Edelman for Calvin Johnson (Guy needs TE and could use WR depth)
    Trade 2: Giovani Bernard, SJax, and Zac Stacy/Edelman/Finley for Marshawn Lynch (or Forte, Rice)

    Is trade #2 giving up too much depth?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      #2, yeah, I’m not digging that.

      Trade 1 isn’t bad because you have Hartline. think you should get some small part back, though, because of Finley’s assumed increased role.

      • Eric Yang says:

          Never really big on 3-1 trades unless the waiver wire provides you with good replacements. I’m fine with the trade I said looked good but think you should get some small upside piece in return.

            @Sky: Cool thanks for the clarification. I actually like having two open spots because I’m one of the more active ones on the waiver wire. Probably pick up Ivory, Greene, Burleson, or something.

              Gotcha. Just never can tell how the FA pool can play out is all.

    Which side do you prefer in a 12-team, 0.5 PPR league:

    Chris Johnson + Boykin = Woodhead + Terrance Williams

    For both teams, the RB would be a starter at RB2 or FLEX, while the WR would be a bye week plug-in and lottery ticket.

      in a PPR league, I’ll take the Woodhead side but it’s close

    Im in an 8 team league so points must be high. We only have 2 RB spots and I’m on the wall on who to start. I have Eddie Lacy, Doug Martin, Trent Richardson, Steven Ridley and Giovanni Bernard.

    Right now I have Lacy and Martin in. I’d feel guilty if I didn’t start Martin. I feel guilty for not starting Ridley and Richardson.

    What you think?

      I’d go by what my rankings above say, personally.

    PPR League

    TY Hilton
    Keenan Allen
    Brian Hartline

    Which one should I start at WR?

    I have Randle, CJ2K, Cameron and Gronk to fill my TE and Flex. Looking at ranks it looks like I can eliminate CJ2K. Gronk and Cameron I am assuming are equal. What it boils down to is who goes into the flex assuming at least one of the TE is obviously in the TE spot?

    Starting Rice and Spiller at RB against what your rankings say…such a muddled group o decide between. Spiller a huge mistake in your eyes?

      I really like Cam’s matchup this week. I also worry about possible limits on Gronk and some decoy like red zone play. I’d feel safer with Jordan there

        @Sky: Cool…so Gronk or Randle at flex?

          @Deck: Assuming it’s Joseph, I’ll say Randle there.

          I wouldn’t call Spiller a mistake. Until he’s healthy, he’s just hard to rely on.
