Congratulations to Keith Poirier and his wildly inappropriately named team who lead the RCL Overall Standings after week 5! Check to see where you ended up.

Remember that each football league winner receives a trophy from Fantasy Sports Trophies, so be sure to take a look at their wares for your other leagues.  They have a lot of options. And below is the trophy we are all gunning for.  The overall winner gets this beauty —

And if you are 0-5 and want a chance to win something in just one week.  Try our Weekly QB/RB/WR Contest and/or play me in Fanduel.

Good luck all!  Keep on fighting!

    Which is the best play out of my craptastic FA defense options for this week — 49ers (Oak), Raiders (@SF), Dolphins (@GB), Colts (@Was), Bucs (NO) or Cowboys (@Min).

    I guess I’m leaning Fins if Rodgers doesn’t play, but if Rodgers does suit up I’m pretty stumped. And yes those really are my best options since I play with a bunch of geniuses who want to have two Ds on their roster. Thanks as always, Doc.

  2. Wilsonian says:

    Need a TE for next week with Keller on bye. It looks like the best available is Winslow or Moeaki or Pettigrew or Heap.

    1QB/3WR/2RB/1TE/1Flex WR-RB

    I’ve got a decent collection of WRs – Wayne, Austin, Ward, Mike Williams, Tate, Bryant. Would you drop Bryant for one of those TEs for next week, or just hope something is available when the time comes (although I will have to drop someone).

  3. Joel says:

    hey Doc, I picked up Maeoki or whatever his name is to cover for Finley. Now, I got an offer of Dustin Keller for Finley. what do you think? I’m leaning towards it.

  4. Probable Party Starter says:

    Is it time to cut ties with S. Smith (CAR)? My other WR’s are Wayne, Nicks, Mason and M. Williams (TB) in PPR.
    Also would you bail on Minny D? I haven’t been impressed and they have the short week and Romo.

  5. nick m. says:

    Which side do you like in a 12-team PPR?

    Romo, A. Bradshaw, T.O., S. Holmes
    Rodgers, Moreno, Witten, Pittsburgh Def

  6. hideousmutants says:

    Thanks for the advice on Beanie, Doc. Got him for Lynch and given that either would’ve warmed the bench, I’d rather have the high-upside guy waiting in the wings. Incidentally, I traded him to one of those teams you mentioned in the Crazy Season post. She’s sitting at 5-0 (though in the 2nd tier of points scored) and she started her draft off with Brady (#1 overall), Best, JC, Beanie, Eagles, Zach Miller. I figured that team would be horrendous and here she in first.

  7. The Vaporizers says:

    I am pretty sure that I can get Michael Turner for my Ahmad Bradshaw. What do you think about Turner the rest of the year? Pull this trigger, right?

  8. The Vaporizers says:

    Eli or Flacco?

    Who you like more rest of year?

  9. potus says:

    What do you guys think about this deal(10 team NOT PPR):

    LT and B. Lloyd



    I am a playoff bound team(if all goes well). Already have Ray Rice, Foster, and D Williams as RB. Austin and A Johnson as WR. MJD has better playoff matchups than LT IMO. As crazy as it sounds Lloyd will probably not get off my bench(well unless of course ‘this’ continues). If MJD isn’t enough in this deal what RB do you think I should target for those 2 guys.

    Thanks in advance.

  10. The Vaporizers says:

    sorry, actually forget that last question

    How do you feel about:

    Turner and Welker


    Bradshaw and Royal

  11. Pepe Silvia says:

    @The Vaporizers: If you actually think you can get someone to accept that deal, then run, don’t walk. The Turner side is way way way better there.

  12. potus says:

    @ Vapor—-Turner and Bradshaw are shockingly close in the rankings with Turner holding the slight edge BUT Welker >>>>>>>>>>>>Royal. Pull the trigger son! NOW!!!

  13. Pepe Silvia says:

    @Joel: Finley might actually be done for the year, so it all depends on whether or not it’d make you feel like a dick to trade away a cripple.

  14. Pepe Silvia says:

    trying to think of ways to make my starting lineup even stronger. if I offered Santonio Holmes and Pierre Thomas for either Michael Turner or MJD, would I be giving up too much?

  15. slimshady says:


    P Manning is on bye next week and I’m thinking of trading for Orton or Flacco. Who do you like better for next week?

    Flacco vs BUF or Orton vs OAK


  16. John says:

    Hey Doc,

    How about some analysis on the top 10 teams so far, and which you think are most likely to keep it up and which you think are most likely to drop back down to earth?

  17. Isles Guru says:


    My WRs are pretty weak and I will have Charles….

    (In PPR) Should I trade away MJD and Best for AJ and D Williams?

  18. Isles Guru says:


    My WRs are pretty weak. Yet I have MJD, Best, and Charles at RB.

    Should I trade away MJD and Best for AJ and D Williams?

  19. Max says:

    Tony Gonzalez @ PHI or Aaron Hernandez vs BAL?

    I want to play Hernandez, but I don’t want to get burned by making a dumb decision…

  20. Vaporizers says:

    hey guys, regarding the trade of my

    Turner and Welker


    Bradshaw and Royal

    I can also include Roddy White and get Reggie Wayne. I”d prefer to not have a a WR/RB on the same team (White and Turner). I alrady have AJ and Foster.

  21. Pepe Silvia says:

    @slimshady: Unless you are really hard-up for a win, I don’t know if it’s a great idea to make a trade for a bye week QB. I have Peyton in a league too and I can tell you Josh Freeman (STL) and Matt Cassel (Jax) both have terrific matchups that week, and I highly doubt both of them are taken in your league.

  22. potus says:

    @ pepe—either MJD or Turner would be acceptable in a deal for P Thomas + Holmes. It would actual be a totally one sided deal and your lineup would be even more stellar!

    @ vapor—White and Wayne are fairly equal. If you don’t like the 2x on one team do it. I’d look @ strength of playoff schedule and where the Colts will be vs the rest of their division come playoff time. They do like to sit their starters but doubt they get the chance this year.

  23. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Pepe Silvia: Agreed. If Rodgers is out go Fins. If not I would lean SF.

    @Wilsonian: I like Moeaki. Would hate to drop Bryant. Would probably drop Tate first.

    @Joel: Might be shunned if you make that trade now with Finley most likely done.

    @Probable Party Starter: I’d hold Smith for now. Yeah, Dallas could hurt them. Depends on your options.

    @The Vaporizers: Yeah, I think Turner is a good buy low. I like Bradshaw, but Turner a little more.

    @The Vaporizers: Like the Turner side

    @Pepe Silvia: No

    @slimshady: Would hate to give up too much for one week of service. I like Orton, but I’d look at the matchups for FAs.

    @John: Interesting. If I get time.

    @Isles Guru: That’s a little much, but fair enough. I’m leaning no, but wouldn’t say it’s stupid. (could I get more on the fence?)

    @Max: Gonzo

    @Vaporizers: I like Roddy more than Wayne

  24. Isles Guru says:


    Thanks for the quickly reply. I moved Best for Fitz and now the guy is asking for MJD and Charles for AJ and D Williams. Is this better or worse?

    My options are:

    MJD, Charles, Cal Johnson, and Fitz or
    D Williams, AJ , Cal Johnson, and Fitz

  25. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: so what you’re saying is…I should probably wait until next week so I can see how they’re going to use Tate this week before I make a move, which should be one of those guys for Moeaki?

  26. Wilsonian says:

    Harrison to the Iggles for Mike Bell…

    What does this mean for Harrison?

    What does this mean for Hillis?

  27. Joel says:

    Doc, I’d already accepted the Keller for Finley trade a half hour before the news turned into 6-10 weeks, and then an hour after that possibly done. So, while I feel sort of bad about it, my partner was our #1 team, so its defiitely someone who knows whattheyre doing. they took a risk, and it obviously backfired on them.

    My question now centers on ARod, who I also have. I’m strongly tempted to offer him and a running back (either Hillis or Felix J.) for Peyton. You think thats too much to give? It would leabce me with Bradshaw, SJax, best, and whichever of those 2 rbs I don’t deal.
