Here are a few waiver wire guys to think over. I’ll probably throw some lesser known guys out there later, but these are the guys I would want if I needed some help, and I always need some help.

David Garrard: The Texans are just plain awful at stopping quarterbacks.  They haven’t kept an opposing quarterback from getting less than 20 fantasy points. Garrard is the opposite of consistent, but he has had over 20 fantasy points in 4 of the 6 games he’s played in. With so many good quarterbacks on bye this week Garrard becomes a top 5 option.

Shaun Hill: While subbing for Stafford he put up great fantasy numbers and his schedule should keep that up.  Of course this week is up in the air and we might see Drew Stanton, but there is a chance he could go.  Keep an eye on this one, but he will be the guy

Tashard Choice: Who knows what’s going to go down in Big D, but Jason Garrett probably won’t keep things status quo.  We won’t know for sure until they get out on the field, but Choice is worth grabbing just in case he becomes the main guy.

Mike Goodson: The Panthers running back situation is not a happy good times one by any stretch of the imagination, but if you’ve got no other options, any possible starting running back is worth a look.  Sadly a lot depends on Tyrell Sutton and Deangelo Williams injury situation which won’t be clear until later in the week.

James Jones: With Mr. Rodgers throwing you the ball even King Friday could be a good fantasy option and that guy is old.  Jones has the ability, but will be inconsistent, but he needs to be owned.

Nate Burleson: I sure wish Matthew Stafford wasn’t hurt, but Shaun Hill has shown he can keep fantasy players in points.  Burleson will continue to benefit from single coverage as long as Megatron stays in his wide receiver form.

Sidney Rice: He may play this week, but unless you are desperate it would would be a good idea to sit him.  If he is sitting in free agency it would behoove you to unseat him.

Blair White: Austin Collie won’t play in week 10 so The Blair White Project will be green lit once again.  He makes for a nice pickup if you need a spot starter.

Vincent Jackson: He has just the bye and one game left to sit out and will have practiced with the starters for a month by the time he starts.  Unless Philip Rivers all of the sudden turns into Philip Glass, VJax becomes a WR1 from day one.

  1. Black Beard says:

    In a nonPPR going forward: Winslow or Watson?

  2. Asdrubal Bastardo says:

    Thank you for painting the image in my head of Aaron Rodgers throwing a deep bomb to King Friday haha, wonderful.

  3. heller says:

    Non ppr.
    Need 2 RB’s -Rice, Sjax, or Foster.
    Just offered trade of T.Gonzalez and L. Blount for R. Wayne and Kellen W. I would be getting Wayne and Kellen. I still have Witten on roster. What u think?

  4. DSimms says:

    After losing Romo and Stafford, I picked up Garrard and another team offered me Schaub straight up for him. I take this deal and don’t look back right?

  5. Randy says:

    Beanie Wells and Donald Driver are on the wire.
    Do you think either have any value going forth?
    I’d be dropping my back-up TE(Daniels) or Branch to get them.
    Wells would be my #4 RB.

  6. hacienda says:

    Two questions:

    Who do you like better this week in PPR: Sims-Walker against the very generous Houston defense, or the Blair White Project?

    Also, I need a roster spot in my competitive 16-team league, and I’m debating on dropping either Michael Bush or Malcolm Floyd for a one-week fill-in play–we only have 5 bench spots. Who do you think has more value going forward?

  7. Damion says:

    Yo Doc,
    Im going with 3 horses at RB: Mccoy, Rice, and Blount
    At QB, Im going with Mr.Vick

    Now Im stuck with who to start at WR: Need to choose two between Bowe, Mike Williams-TB, and Miles Austin.???
    Also Vianscho or Kellar at TE?

  8. Damion says:

    Also, I just lost on picking up Vjax on the waiver wire. Is there a positive to having Floyd, if Vjax is probably going to be double covered?? Or would that leave open Mr.Gates?

  9. 24hourjack says:

    how legitimate is Stafford’s upside?……..two injuries to his throwing shoulder is scaring me off….

    in a keeper league,would you hang on to him head of Knowshon Moreno and Sidney Rice?……..

    I still Josh Freeman on my roster as well.

  10. Wilsonian says:

    To continue on with my question last night about dropping Fitz for Garrard. You said it was a tough question, but I went ahead and did it anyway. My thinking is that Cutler could still be as good or better than Fitz for the rest of the season, I’m 6-3 and in a cluster f with 5 teams at 6-3 in a 12 team league (I’m technically in 2nd because of point totals). I figured if Garrard could show up and play like he has in the wins, it could give me a boost to take over first.

    Good move?

  11. The Vaporizers says:

    Hey Doc, who do you like as a better flex play in a 1 PPR league for the rest of the season? Hakeem Nicks or Ahmad Bradshaw.

  12. paulzone says:

    @Doc:my team:

    rivers, fitz
    bradshaw, moreno, pierre, matthews
    aj, wayne, ward, holmes, washington
    tamme, gonzo

    #1 – would you trade tamme for mccoy?
    #2 – would you dump someone above for either floyd or choice?

  13. Plainville says:

    Flex option this week are:

    Mike Williams (TB)
    Marshawn Lynch
    Ryan Torain
    Santana Moss

    Lynch has the best matchup but he has done nothing with other solid matchups – thoughts?

  14. Frank Rizzo says:

    Nice. Came here looking for mention on Garrard for this week and there it was. I’m struggling with whether to start him over Roethlisberger this week. I need some kind of boost at 3-6 and my playoff chances dwindling. Is Garrard a worthwhile gamble over Big Ben?

  15. Ethan Stein says:

    I am in first place, so almost assured of a playoff spot. I need to prepare for that. My RB’s are Rice, & J Charles and my WR’s are Wayne, Nicks, & D Jackson for 5 total starting spots (1 either). On the bench I have Addai, Crabtree, M Bush, & V Jacks. I am worried that if either of the prime RB’s gets hurt, their replacements are so-so. With V Jacks, I have the ability to part with a WR. Who is the best to part with?

    Was offered this trade Gore and Shonn Greene for my Rice and Jackson – take it?

  16. Pepe Silvia says:

    @Frank Rizzo: I’d stick with Ben. freakin’ Colt McCoy had no problems with the Pats last week, so I think Ben will be just fine. it’s certainly possible Garrard could outscore him, but I also think it’s WAY more likely Garrard puts up a stinker than Ben.

  17. Pepe Silvia says:

    @Ethan Stein: I understand wanting to add RB depth but you’re giving up WAY too much there. I’m not convinced Greene is an upgrade on Addai — meanwhile DeSean is a top 5 WR with Vick under center.

  18. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Pepe Silvia: I lost last week thanks to Ben handing the ball to Randel El so he could throw a TD to Wallace. Ben is pissing me off and at 3-6 I’m getting desperate.

  19. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc; @anyone: Do you like either of these trades:

    A) I get Tamme/Forte and give Keller/McCoy?

    B) I get Tamme/Greene and give Keller/McCoy?

    Not sure I like either offer, but wondering some opinions.

  20. Big Nate says:

    Side A or Side B?

    Side A
    Austin, Miles WR DAL
    ·Bradshaw, Ahmad RB NYG

    Side B
    ·Jennings, Greg WR GB
    ·Rice, Ray RB BAL

  21. Wilsonian says:

    @Big Nate: B, all day…Austin’s value has hit the floor right now with Romo out. Bryant is the WR to own from DAL at this point.

  22. Rookie Season says:

    I know you told me to lay low with my shallow roster. But, how’s this trade sounding? I get T.O. and Dan Carpenter, giving Reggie Wayne and Mike Nugent.

    Wayne gets targets and some yardage, but he’s not getting the endzone. I think Peyton is spreading it around a little too much. T.O. is the hot ticket right now. Not as many targets, but he’s getting TDs. Is T.O. going to be the man, or will the looks decrease now that Ocho is crying? Show me the way! :)

  23. wallin says:

    Hey guys, let me know what you think of this deal.

    I would be giving up Matt Ryan (backup) and Dwayne Bowe for Desean Jackson.

    With that deal my starting lineup would be:

    WR:DJax, Harvin, Crabtree, Bess, Amendola PPR League
    TE: Miller, Olsen

    Does anyone think Bowe continues this pace of will DJax just outproduce him with Vick at the helm?

  24. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Big Nate: That’s a coin toss. Bradshaw has been much more effective than Rice this year. Things look dark for Austin but he will still be a factor….and he’s better after the catch than Jennings I think. I know the most popular answer may be B but the right answer.

  25. Frank Rizzo says:

    …..may be A.

  26. stumanji says:

    Gonna do my best Doc impersonation here to kill some time at work:
    @Black Beard: Watson
    @heller: You win but I doubt that gets [email protected]DSimms: That’s tough because Schaub has been so crappy. I still think you take it, though because Garrard can put up stinkers with the worst of them.
    @Randy: I would pick up both of them.
    @hacienda: MSW. Drop Bush.
    @Damion: That’s tough. Austin is a risk with Kitna and the shitshow in Dallas but if they get down big to NYG like last time, they will be throwing a lot to stay in the game. I’d start Bowe, too. I feel like TB won’t need to throw that much after a quarter or two to put away Carolina.
    @Damion: I think Floyd will still have WR2 value as long as Rivers is slinging the rock.
    @24hourjack: I’d let Stafford go.
    @Wilsonian: Garrard should have a good week.
    @The Vaporizers: Nicks. Dude is a stud.

    Eh, this is exhausting…I’ll let Doc take over.

  27. Big Nate says:

    @Wilsonian: @Frank Rizzo – I’m salivating at the upside of Bradshaw but agree with the current value of Miles Austin. If I could get get Larry Fitz instead of Austin do you make that deal?

  28. Dollabill says:

    I’m playing in a 10 team league, where I’ve managed to make some good waiver wire pickups/trades. I’m currently in 1st place, and am looking to make 1 more move to solidify my team. Here is my QB/RB situtaion:

    QB (start 1):
    Aaron Rogers
    Big Ben (waiver wire pickup)

    RB(start 2):
    S. Jackson
    A. Bradshaw
    K. Moreno
    Fred Jackson

    Would it make sense to tade Big Ben and Bradshaw for AP?

  29. Wilsonian says:

    @Big Nate: Fitz is a bit of an issue for me, as well. He is a great receiver, and a great guy too if you’ve ever heard him speak, but his QB situation is shitty at best. He’ll still put up decent numbers, but for me, I can’t trust him to be that set it and forget it player anymore until he gets a QB who shows that he’s played the game of football before. Jennings is the Numero Uno on a team with a GREAT QB, I like him much more than those two guys, and the difference between Bradshaw and Rice is negligible at best. If I’m not mistaken, Rice did have like 170 yards combined last week, just no paydirt…it’s not like he’s terrible or anything. I’d honestly stick with what you got.

  30. trick dad says:

    Hey Doc,

    Eli is my QB, the only weeks I’d consider benching him are 14 & 16 (@MIN & @GB). Or would you play him no matter what? Other options are…
    14 NE 30th against the pass
    16 NYJ 18th against the pass
    14 CLE 29th against the pass
    16 NE 30th against the pass
    14 WAS 27th against the pass
    16 SEA 19th against the pass

  31. Jordan73 says:

    Leave Miles Austin in and hope he can have some success this week, or grab Breaston and let him go against Seattle’s D?


  32. paulzone says:

    I was just offered mccoy and zach miller for tamme and moreno. Would you take it?

    my team:
    rivers, fitz
    bradshaw, moreno, pierre, matthews
    aj, wayne, ward, holmes, washington
    tamme, gonzo

  33. Mr2Bits says:

    Doc : Do you like Gonzo better than D. Keller this week?

    Also, whats your take on the law firm, this past week was painful?

  34. joey joe joe jr. shabadoo says:

    larry fitzgerald for

    tony gonzalez and steve smith (CAR) or LDT?

  35. Nate says:

    Who should I start as my RB2 this week, Beanie Wells vs Seattle or Ronnie Brown vs Tennessee? Sleeper options are Joseph Addai vs Cinci (assuming he’s healthy) and CJ Spiller vs Detroit (It’s PPR + return yards, so Spiller has some value.)

  36. Suck It Cutler says:

    Hey Doc,
    So a kid in my league has Gore on the trading block.

    My team is Cutler, Mendenhall, A. Foster, Bradshaw, Reggie Wayne, Bolden, Miller. The only noteworthy people on my bench are Sidney Rice & Lance Moore.

    The kid proposed Gore & Mason for Bradshaw & Boldin. What do you think?

    Thanks, Man!

  37. Rookie Season says:

    Kickers: Akers or Nugent the rest of the way?

  38. mike says:

    Do you start Schaub or Garrard this week?

  39. Mike F says:

    T.O or Blount at FLEX?

  40. Jason Maynard says:

    Doc, who to start this week? Big Ben, Flacco, Orton. Also would you drop Welker and/or Meachem for the WR/RB wire you posted for example N Burleson given DET schedule etc? Thanks bro!

  41. Turd Ferguson says:

    Survivor question for y’all: Among the teams I have left, Tampa (v CAR) is the surest thing this week, but almost everyone else in the pool has them available and will likely be using them or the Giants this week. Given that, I wouldn’t mind saving Tampa for week 15 (v DET) or 16 (v SEA), but to do so would require me to roll the dice on the Niners (v STL), Cards (v SEA) or, God help me, the Bills (v DET) this week.

    So would you guys go with the crowd, take the Bucs and live to fight another day, or zag while everyone else zigs by taking a crappy team at home against another crappy team? Niners were the biggest favorite among those crappy teams last time I checked, but that -6 line is absurd, especially with Troy Smith starting, and I like the Rams the most of those ‘dogs. Seattle and Detroit both have QB issues and are on the road, but it’s hard to place your faith in Derek Anderson or the winless Bills. Gracias.

  42. trey says:


    Non PPR standard scoring league

    felx options

    fred jackson @ home vs the lions
    BRandon Marshall @ home vs Titans
    DEangelo WIlliams @ Bucs

    I am torn here break the tie for me

  43. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Dollabill: I’d do that.

    @trick dad: I would stick with Eli for now.

    @Jordan73: I’d still go with Austin there

    @paulzone: In PPR for sure. Closer in non.

    @Mr2Bits: That’s a tough one, but Gonzo is just more reliable

    @joey joe joe jr. shabadoo: I’d take Fitz vs. Steve Smith/Gonzo as long as you had a good backup TE.

    @Nate: I could see Spiller starting to get more work in this second half so he is a good wildcard, but I would probably lean Brown. I think we’ll start to see more work from him.

    @Suck It Cutler: Anyway you can get Gore straight up for Bradshaw?

    @Rookie Season: Akers

    @mike: Love both, Garrard has a little more upside and Schaub has just been bluh.

    @Mike F: That is very close. Carolina has been giving up a lot of yardage and won’t be able to move the ball with clausen. Blount has a little more upside, but TO is less risky, especially in PPR.

    @Jason Maynard: I Ben and I would drop Welker for Burleson.

    @Turd Ferguson: I would feel better going with Tampa, but I do suck at survivor leagues!

  44. paulzone says:

    @Doc: its a 0.5 ppr league…so you would do it for sure? (trade tamme/moreno for mccoy/z.miller)?

  45. Black Beard says:

    With Chad Henne benched, do you like Pennington or Shaun Hill the rest of the way? Also, drop Mason or Gaffney for either in a 2QB league?

  46. Bluety says:

    In need of a RB. Have been shopping Vick but only getting Ben and Lynch for him should i do it.

  47. Bluety says:

    This is a PPR keeper I have Best, Ricky, barber, Tolbert, K. Smith and hart. Should i make the above trade or just tuff it out and hold on to Brees and Vick

  48. Damion says:

    Yo Doc,….you forgot about me????
    Im going with 3 horses at RB: Mccoy, Rice, and Blount
    At QB, Im going with Mr.Vick

    Now Im stuck with who to start at WR: Need to choose two between Bowe, Mike Williams-TB, and Miles Austin.???
    Also Vianscho or Kellar at TE?

    Also, I just lost on picking up Vjax on the waiver wire. Is there a positive to having Floyd, if Vjax is probably going to be double covered?? Or would that leave open Mr.Gates?

  49. Big Nate says:

    @Wilsonian: The offer has now been improved to be Michael Turner and Miles Austin for Ray Rice and Jennings. Now do I accept?

    Current starters:

    QB – Brady
    RB- McCoy
    RB – Rice
    WR – A Johnson
    WR – Maclin
    WR – Jennings
    TE – Keller


    B Wells
    M Floyd
    N Washington

  50. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc; @anyone: Do you like either of these trades:

    A) I get Tamme/Forte and give Keller/McCoy?

    B) I get Tamme/Greene and give Keller/McCoy?

    Not sure I like either offer, but wondering some opinions. The reason I might like it, though, is because I have CJ, Hillis and DMC that will fit nicely into my 2 RB positions and my RB/WR flex. The only issue I would have is downgrading from McCoy to Forte (or McCoy to Buc Williams – depending on which trade goes down) for the flex spot for this week since DMC is on bye.

    I posted this earlier but go no responses from Doc or the peanut gallery, so sorry for the double post.

  51. Goose says:

    would you drop Floyd for Rice? potayto, potahto? can’t make up my mind, thx…

  52. Wilsonian says:

    @Big Nate: man that is tough. I just worry about Austin being non-productive for the rest of the season. Do you think Turner is that much better than Rice to take the hit of going from Jennings to Austin?

    I would probably be inclined to do it, but I worry about Austin going forward. It looks like you have a pretty good lineup there and I’m not sure you NEED to do the trade, but I can definitely see taking it. If Turner keeps finding the endzone (which I hope he doesn’t because I have White and would like him to get his – no offense to your team), then he’s a top 5. But if Rice finds the endzone he’s obviously a top 5 as well, so that’s why I say it isn’t necessary to do the deal in the first place.

  53. G.O.B. says:

    Who do you like better as a replacement QB this week, Garrard, Kitna, Hill, VY, Favre? I think Garrard based on matchup, if nothing else.

  54. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Wilsonian: Don’t do either of those trades.

    @G.O.B.: Garrard

    @Goose: I’d go with Rice.

    @Big Nate: I’d want the Rice side

    @Damion: I’d probably sit Austin. Go Keller. Floyd still has some value. Just depends on who you drop for him.

    @Bluety: If that’s all you can get I’d go for it.

    @Black Beard: Hill. Penny could do something, but it’s risky.

    @paulzone: I’d go for it.

  55. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: is the drop off from McCoy to Forte for one week not worth the possible giant step forward in production from the TE spot?

    Thanks, as usual, for the advice man.

  56. Dumbmutt says:

    Drop Knox for Sidney? Start 3 WR NonPPR

    Calvin / Roddy / Smith NY / VJax

  57. Turd Ferguson says:

    DST question. I posted in more detail at end of last post, but basically, taking into account playoff matchups, rank the Chiefs, Cards, Eagles and Falcons DSTs from here on. Have the Chiefs now, but their playoff matchups aren’t the best, though they’ll have McCluster back on returns. Eagles have the rep, but not as dominant as in the past and get NYG on the road one of the playoff weeks (and once before then). Falcons get CAR twice in the playoffs and were solid double-digits early in the year, though less so now, and their pre-playoff schedule’s tougher. Cards have the boom or bust thing and some good matchups. I’m almost guaranteed a playoff slot, so weeks 13-17 are most important, though seeding is also a consideration. Thanks. Also I am drunk.

  58. Mr2Bits says:

    Mike Goodson worth anything right now?

  59. Mr2Bits says:

    Forgot to add, now that he’s named the starter?

  60. Big Nate says:

    @Wilsonian @ Doc: Thanks for the help gents. Offer has evolved again. How about McCoy + Maclin for Bradshaw + Miles Austin?

  61. Joel says:

    Doc: if you were me, would you trade Gore and Boldin for Foster and Miles Austin? The only reasons I’m considering it are 1) I have TB Mike Williams to use over Miles Austin in my wr2 slot (Nicks is my 1), and 2)Foster’s playoff schedule. what do you think?

  62. Turd Ferguson says:

    @Mr2Bits: Not much. That whole team is a fantasy black hole right now. If you have a bye week crunch/emergency, he’ll get touches, but that’s about it.

  63. Wilsonian says:

    @Big Nate: not bad, I’d definitely be more inclined to do this one than any of the first offers. It sounds to me like someone is just fed up with Austin. This is one of those offers that makes sense to me if you do it or don’t do it. You’re welcome for the help, but I don’t think I’m much of a help on this one. We’ll have to let Doc be the tie breaker.

  64. Big Nate says:

    @Wilsonian: Yeah, he’s clearly just trying to unload Austin. And I’m not having a hard time justifying Austin as a WR #3 in a 12 team league. What do you think about the move from McCoy to Bradshaw? Is that an upgrade?

  65. Joel says:

    Doc: Shaun Hill or favre this week?

  66. Wilsonian says:

    @Big Nate: is it a PPR or 0.5 PPR? That makes a difference. McCoy is the better pass catcher, but I’m still liking Bradshaw ahead of him, but I could see you declining based on receptions if it’s a PPR.

    FYI, I have Austin in a 12 team league as well, and he caught the pine for this coming week. I’m playing Wayne, Ward, Buc Williams and Dez ahead of him.

  67. Dollab says:

    I am currently in first place in my 10 team league. I’ve made some good trades and waiver wire pickups to get there, and I am looking to make one last trade before the deadline.

    I currently have Rogers as my starting QB and Big Ben as my backup (a key waiver wire pickup!)

    I have Steven Jackson and Bradshaw as my RB, with Moreno and Fred Jackson as my back ups.

    I was just offered AP for Big Ben and Bradshaw. Will this solidify my championship dreams, or shatter my hopes?



  68. Suck It Cutler says:

    @ Doc: I tried to offer Bradshaw for Gore straight up, but guy won’t have it. Seeing as how Sidney Rice might be coming back… I could have my 2 WR’s as Wayne & Rice with 3 RBs as Gore, Mendies, Foster…given this, would you still say no to his original trade of Gore/Mason for Bradshaw/Boldin? APPRECIATE IT!!!

  69. Slew says:

    Need to drop either Matthews or Tolbert in my 14 team (non ppr) due to bye week. Leaning towards Matthews, with the sore kankle and all. What say you?

  70. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Suck It Cutler: I’d go for it. gore is the prize.

    @Joel: Tough. I’d lean Favre since we aren’t sure how far back Hill really is.

    @Joel: I wouldn’t make that trade.

    @Big Nate: I just like McCoy more than Bradshaw.

    @Mr2Bits: Since it looks like he’ll get the start he’s worth a flex play this week, especially against Tampa.

    @Dumbmutt: I would.

  71. paulzone says:

    drop matthews for choice?

  72. PaulPaul says:

    Woodhead, Welker or Derrick Mason as WR2 this week?

  73. Doc

    Doc says:

    @paulzone: I’d still lean Mathews but it’s close

    @PaulPaul: Mason

  74. Dumbmutt says:

    I can’t seem to drop BAL D since they have CAR next week. I would like to win this week though and best available is SEA @ARI / KC @DEN . I should just pick up SEA right?

  75. paulzone says:

    malcolm floyd or nate washington? This is a bench stash so don’t worry about floyds bye…

  76. Dumbmutt says:

    Wanted to include above are you concerned about SEA D dealing with injuries now.

  77. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Dumbmutt: I don’t love those matchups. I’d stick with Baltimore.

    @paulzone: Floyd

  78. Dumbmutt says:

    Thanks Doc.

  79. Howie Met Your Mother says:


    Doc, in my 10 team H2H league, I was offered Roethlisberger and Roddy White for my Greg Jennings and Steve Smith (NYG). What do you think? Here is my current team:

    QB: Orton
    RB1: R.Rice (traded for Arian Foster after week 1)
    RB2: Chris Johnson
    WR1: Calvin Johnson (traded for Forte & Mike Williams of Tampa Bay)
    WR2: Austin
    WR3: Jennings
    TE: Tamme
    Flex: Bradshaw
    DEF: Giants
    K: who cares.
    Bench: Flacco, S. Smith (NYG), M.Wallace, S.Rice, Marcedes Lewis

  80. Joe B says:

    @Doc: Start David Garrard over Matt Ryan this week?

  81. Don Tom says:

    Aaron Rodgers on Bye. Gonna pickup Josh Freeman but who to drop.

    Beanie Wells, VJax, Reggie Bush, Tolbert. I’m thinking its definately Tolbert and maybe even try to regrab him after his bye correct? Or I could also drop Steve Breaston and put Beanie (although his knee is swelling again) as my Flex.

    Other Q: Someone just dropped Santonio Holmes. Drop Breaston for him correct? Blair White is also availible.

    Also someone dropped Green Bay defense. I’ve been spot starting defenses this season and have Arizona vs Sea this week. But should I go for GB vs Minn? And hold on to GB for awhile or stick with what I’ve been doing?


  82. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: this is from earlier…it was my response to you saying not to do a Tamme/Forte for Keller/McCoy deal:

    is the drop off from McCoy to Forte for one week not worth the possible giant step forward in production from the TE spot?

    I had said earlier that the only reason I would really consider this was because I would only play Forte this week in the flex and then next week DMC would be back and would most likely remain the main stay in my flex, barring injury. (Also I could still play Buc Williams or Best this week in the flex) If DMC was to get hurt, I would have these options in the flex: Best, Forte, Colston, Buc Williams or VJax. So I was wondering why you wouldn’t do that deal, given these circumstances?

    Thanks, as usual, for the advice man.

  83. Slew says:

    Need to drop either Matthews or Tolbert in my 14 team (non ppr) due to bye week. Who would you drop?

  84. Overpaid Felons says:

    Torrain or LT?

  85. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Howie Met Your Mother: I’d trade both Smith and Jennings to get White, so yeah.

    @Joe B: Yeah

    @Don Tom: I’d probably drop Breaston and Tolbert for Freeman and Holmes. I would like owning GB, but not sure who you would drop.

    @Slew: Mathews has more upside, but if you need a for sure starter next week you’d want to keep Tolbert.

    @Overpaid Felons: LT

  86. Rookie Season says:

    Would you do T.O. and Dan Carpenter and give Reggie Wayne and Mike Nugent? Refer to Post #22. Thanks!

  87. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: I’m starting to get depressed, you skipped me again. Am I the smelly kid in class, er what? Ha!

  88. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Wilsonian: Why can’t you play McCoy this week and all the week’s after? McCoy is a huge step ahead of Forte.

  89. Don Tom says:

    Doc, completely forgot GB has a bye this week so maybe I’ll grab em next week. Thanks!

  90. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Rookie Season: I’d stick with Reggie

  91. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: would you play McCoy ahead of DMC, CJ2K and Hillis, because I can play either 2 or 3 RBs, counting the flex position, and McCoy is most likely 4th on the depth chart. Therein lies the problem, and the main reason why I would consider doing the deal.

  92. elwood blues says:

    In my never ending search for a #2 running back who’s not a bust (FJones, S.Greene) or doesn’t get hurt on the 1st drive (J-Stew)..

    do I pick up Lynch or Hightower in a matchup against each other, both are FA’s (and Wells doesn’t look good)

  93. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Wilsonian: It’s just not a good deal for you. It’s pretty much McCoy for Tamme which isn’t fair to you. He’s a #1 RB and should fetch a #1 QB/WR. If you think Tamme is worth McCoy then you should do it, but teams aren’t going to let Tamme beat them every week.

  94. Doc

    Doc says:

    @elwood blues: I’d go with Lynch.

  95. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: and that explanation is why we look to you for advice. Definitely makes sense to me. I appreciate the help as always, man!

  96. Howie Met Your Mother says:


    Would you rather have Blount or D.Williams as your #4 RB (behind CJ2K, Rice, Bradshaw)? He’d probably never start unless one of those 3 got hurt the rest of the way.

  97. gip says:

    What is fair trade value for Vick right now? Should he be sold high because of injury risk?
    Need a Rb, Is Turner or Hillis fair? Or Since I also have Bress would that do the trick for either back

  98. Weezy says:

    I’m looking at Sid Rice in my league. My worst receiver is either Crabs or Garcon. Would you drop either to make that switch?

  99. DANgerous says:

    Soooo….I traded for Romo,got me 7 pts then his shoulder fell off, I lost by 5 pts that week. I picked up Stafford, and rode his 28/32 pts to victory the last two weeks….we know what happened there. So I got lucky,if you wanna call it that. Somebody dropped Cutler…he’s my diabetic bro leading my squad…how do you feel bout vincsainty young going forward? He plays jax 2times n hou….

  100. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Howie Met Your Mother: Blount

    @gip: I like Vick a lot, but it will be hard to get a #1 RB for him.

    @Weezy: I could see dropping Crabs for him with Smith at the helm, but it’s close.

    @DANgerous: If he can stay healthy he does have a nice schedule. I could see making a preemptive pickup.

  101. Slim says:

    @Doc ,
    Drop Greg Olsen for for Joel Dressen from Houston? we can start two TE and my other TE are Zach Miller and Tamme, with Miller’s injury i just want to be covered.

    Also, pickup branch or burelson?


  102. Jestin says:

    Offered a trade, they’re giving Flacco, Tamme and Crabtree for Schaub, Wallace and Blount. PPR, my WR are-Andre, TB Mike, and Rice, and my RB-McCoy, Moreno & FJax. Do I do this trade? I’m trying to do a trade to get Greene for FJax and Knox.

  103. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Slim: I would. Burleson.

    @Jestin: I’d want the Blount side.
