Week 6 is just about wrapped up and we’ve seen some stellar performances from most of the league’s top backs…so at least we got some action before this boring MNF matchup. I sure hope Brandon Marshall comes through on his promise to get booted by halftime so the game has some entertainment value besides the QB battle of Moore vs. Sanchez. Yuck. Here are some news and notes from Sunday:

Cam Newton– It’s been said before, but the guy is immune to bad fantasy days. 237 passing yards, no touchies and 3 picks? No worries, Cam’s legs save the day with 50 yards on the ground and a 14 yard rushing TD that looked effortless. Keep playing him. Keep loving him.

Michael Turner– The burner kept pounding the rock, with 139 yards and 2 goal line scores. Turner now has 6 touchdowns, and as long as he keeps finding the zone, he’ll rack up the points. It will be interesting to see how he holds up down the stretch.

Fred Jackson– The man kept doing his thing today with 168 total yards and an 80 yard touchdown run. If you drafted this guy, your team is kicking ass. It’s as simple as that. He’s the best right now and doesn’t show signs of slowing up anytime soon.

Mark Ingram– The rook has now scored in 3 of his last 4 games, to offset his low yardage totals. I would love to see what this guy could do with more carries, but at least the touchdowns are starting to roll in. I feel pretty good about his chances at making it 4 of 5 games with a score in week 7 vs. Indianapolis.

Jimmy Graham– Jimbo G continued his tear as the best tight end in the fantasy world, with 7 rec. for 124 yards, giving him 4 straight games over 100 yards receiving. This guy is unstoppable and I’m ready for him to rack up another big effort next week as he mashes on the Colts. STUD.

Devin Hester– Hester caught a 48 yard bomb to start the Sunday Night game this week and followed that up with a kickoff return for a score in the 3rd quarter. Hester’s receiving contributions can’t be counted on, but if you get any kind of bump for return yardage, you obviously are on board. The dude is awesome and turbo fast but I wouldn’t play him in average formats unless I was desperate.

Felix Jones – Now that the Cowboys have had their bye week, Felix thought it would be cool to injure a new body part. He left today’s game in the 2nd quarter with what is rumored to be a high ankle sprain, and did not return. DeMarco Murray is the man to add, as Jones could be out for multiple weeks.

Brandon Pettigrew– Big Brandon tied for the league lead in TE targets today (with the next guy) with 14, and was easily the Lion’s most targeted weapon. Pettigrew could have had an even better day, as he had another TD knocked away and slipped on another that would have been completed. Stafford trusts him, so you should trust him.

Aaron Hernandez– 8 grabs for 68 yards and the game winning score today for Hernandez. Both NE tight ends are kicking some serious tail right now, but Hernandez ended up with the better day and had a whopping 14 targets. His knee issues seem to be behind him, so go ahead and enjoy.

Peyton Hillis– Head Coach Pat Shurmur came out and said Hillis will “get the bulk of the carries” this week at Oakland. That made you confident to start him, right? Good, me too. Then our pal Peyton rewarded us by tweaking his hammy early in the game and finishing with 6 carries for a saucy 14 yards. Hillis is scheduled to have an MRI Monday so stay tuned, and grab Montario Hardesty in the mean time.

Rashard Mendenhall– In the opposite of Hillis’ situation, Pittsburrgh’s O-coordinator claimed that they didn’t want to “overload” Mendenhall this week. Naturally, Mendy came out and led all RB’s 146 rushing yards and even scored a touchie. Looks like he’s back.

Aaron Rodgers– If you drafted Rodgers, stop reading, stand up, and do the “title belt” touchdown celebration. This dude is awesome and did what he was born to do… lead all QB’s in fantasy scoring. 310 yds passing with 3 TDs, and it felt like he could’ve kept smashing on the Rams if he felt the need. Next up is Minnesota to feel the wrath of Rodgers in week 7.

Jason Campbell– Campbell was having a moderate year in Oakland and seemed to be developing some confidence in the young Raider receiving crew, but after busting up his collarbone today, Campbell is shelved for the season. This leaves Kyle Boller as the Raider’s QB, with perhaps a David Garrard tryout in the near future. Keep an eye on what develops, Garrard could be an add in 2 QB leagues.

Rex Grossman– There is the Rex we’ve been waiting for! After staying afloat through 5 weeks, Grossman came out and proved us all right and was handing out picks like Halloween candy. Seriously, even a 4 year old dressed like Buzz Lightyear could’ve snared an INT in this one. Grossman was eventually benched after his fourth interception, to go along with a 9 for 22 passing effort. John Beck took over, so keep him in your sights in super-mega-deep or 2 QB leagues.

Jordy Nelson– Jordy hooked up with Aaron Rodgers (not that way) on a 93 yard touchdown today, but ended up with only 2 catches for 104 yards. This is how things usually roll for Jordy, and the rest of the GB receivers not named Greg. Nelson had 91 yds (with a 50 yd TD) in week 4, then followed it up with a mere 17 yards in week 5. It’s a roller coaster so wear your lucky undies when you start him.

Earnest Graham– He’s old, but Graham showed today that he is far from crusty. While turning 17 carries into 109 yards, Ernie proved that he’s still got the spring to make him a solid start while Blount is out. He also added a couple catches for some extra PPR mojo. Blount will be out week 7, so leave him in your lineup.

Frank Gore– After a crap filled start to the season, Gore has been a monster the past 3 weeks, averaging nearly 8 yards a carry and 131 yards rushing per game. San Francisco hits their bye in week 7, so Gore should be ready to roll come week 8 vs. Cleveland. Feel free to follow him to victory, just be careful shaking his coach’s hand.

Greg Little– Little was moved into the starting lineup for Cleveland and had a solid day, with 6 catches for 72 yards on a team high 12 targets. Little should continue to get lots of work in this offense, as long as McCoy can get him the rock. Little will be a nice play at WR the rest of the way and a gem for those who swiped him in dynasty leagues.

Michael Crabtree– Crabby came through with 9 grabs with for 77 yards on a league leading 15 targets. He nearly added a touchdown as well, but “pogo sticked” on one leg twice before falling out of bounds (in NFL land, one foot twice doesn’t equal two feet, apparently). If someone in your league got impatient and dumped this guy, get on the prowl.

Josh Freeman– Things are finally back in order for Tampa Bay, for the time being. Freeman looked like his old self today, zinging the ball around for 303 yards and 2 touchdowns. Coming off the clunker of all clunkers in week 5, this was a very nice sight to see. If you drafted Freeman, you’ve found a better option by now, but he still has a chance to return to starter status if he keeps this up.

Christian Ponder– Ponder got some extensive playing time on Sunday night, replacing McNabb. This has no real bearing on standard leagues, as McNabb was crappy and Ponder most likely will continue in the same fashion, but is worth checking out for you dynasty dudes and dudettes.

Jerome Simpson– Maggie’s big bro Jerome reeled in 6 catches for 101 yards today as the Bengals dropped Indy. Simpson hasn’t done anything since week 2, but could perhaps be a moderate bye week fill in facing Seattle’s suspect secondary in week 8 after the Bengals bye week.

Anquan Boldin– Boldin turned 9 targets into 8 catches and 132 yards today, following up a 1 catch performance he turned in before the Baltimore bye. This was Boldin’s first effort of more than 74 yards this season and he hasn’t touched the endzone since week 1. As unpredictable as he is, Boldin is still the best target in the Raven passing game so hopefully he will turn in more games like this down the stretch.

Ahmad Bradshaw– If you started this guy in FanDuel this week, enjoy your cash. Bradshaw bowled over Buffalo for 104 yards and 3 touchdowns today, and took advantage of the absence of Brandon Jacobs. Once Jacobs returns, Bradshaw won’t be getting the goal line work that he did today, but will still be valuable as a nice RB2 with an extra bump in PPR.

  1. MJD Took A Knee says:

    Hi Doc not sure if this is too early but I’m in a bind for week 7. I can repost this monster later in the week if it is too early.

    My TE is on BYE and I am not sure if I can drop anyone (maybe Garcon? best WR on the wire if I did drop him: J. Ford – G. Little – M. Clayton) and if not I would choose between starting a TE or a DEF. I was leaning taking a DEF.

    Week 7 TE:
    (Benjamin Watson vs SEA – Ed Dickson @ JAC – Visanthe Shiancoe vs GB – Marcedes Lewis vs BAL – Todd Heap vs PIT – Kellen Davis @TB)

    Week 7 DEF:

    (DEN @ MIA – DAL vs STL – TB vs CHI – CAR vs WAS – SD @ NJ – OAK vs KC – CLE vs SEA – SEA @ CLE – HOU @ TEN – MIA vs DEN)

    12T Nonppr QB/2RB/2WR/Flex

    QB: Stafford – Eli
    WR: Wallace – Manningham – Garcon – N. Washington
    RB: AP – Gore – McGahee – Ingram – Starks
    TE: Gronk

    Week 7 Lineup

    QB: Stafford vs ATL
    WR: Wallace @ ARI
    WR: N. Wash vs HOU
    RB: AP vs GB
    RB: McGahee @ MIA
    Flex: Ingram vs IND
    K: Hanson vs ATL

    Thanks if you go this far. Walking Dead time.

  2. Heraldo says:

    With the Jason Campbell injury, would Terrelle Pryor be a worthwhile add in any leagues?

  3. trevor says:

    @Heraldo Of course you have to give Pryor a look in two QB leagues if you have room and won’t mind waiting a few weeks. i could certainly see Pryor becoming a factor down the stretch myself and am probably going to target him

    For me personally I had the greatest trade of my life in a 2 QB league this week. I traded Campbell and Shonn Greene and hauled in Mcfadden. I even wanted to keep Campbell and trade Matt Hasslebeck instead but my trading partner needed a QB for this week just to start one qb (the second QB spot is a flex) so I offered Campbell instead. Thank the lord for that one. I also have been sitting on Beck in two different leagues. Thank the lord he took over. I think Beck is going to be a sneaky play down the stretch

  4. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @MJD Took A Knee: Personally, I think I’d drop Garcon and then add a TE like Watson/Dickson and a Defense. Feel free to hit Doc up in the comments of his waiver post this week and get his opinion as well.

    @Heraldo: I doubt he will be relevant this year, but like @trevor mentioned, maybe give him a look in 2QB leagues if youve got bench space. That being said, I really doubt he will do anything in 2011.

    @trevor: Now THAT is a trade…you lucked out there big time. And ya, Beck could be a decent play down the stretch…he cant be worse than Rex.

  5. MJD Took A Knee says:

    Sorry about that Jeff I didn’t see who the writer was for the post. I think I will drop Garcon and not take the 0 because you never know what will happen. And of course I never had Garcon in my lineup for the big games. I wish I had thought about dropping him sooner since someone had dropped F.Davis and he just cleared waivers yesterday. That would have been nice. But the person dropped K.Hunter so I can always try to get my Gore handcuff. I might grab Watson and Dallas for next week.

    Let me end this by saying I dropped M.Williams TB last year over Knox around this time too heh. I do make bad moves sometimes.

    Thank you for the response.

  6. anon says:

    12-team PPR

    qb – Romo
    rb – McCoy, Hillis, Torain, Scott, Choice
    wr – AJ Green, VJax, Holmes, Santana Moss
    te – Gronk, Cook

    Was offered Steve Smith Panthers and Benson for Hillis and Santana. Worth it? I’m worried about Smith seeing a lot of double coverage and Benson getting suspended, but Hillis is such a little bitch. I need some advice, I can’t even rationally evaluate this trade! thanks

  7. Rob says:

    Would you waive Pierre Thomas for DeMarco Murray for bench RB. My two starting RB (Forte+Peterson) have bye week weeks 8 and 9. Oh I would have won my matchup had I benched Finley for A Hernandez. I will not make that mistake again.

  8. Ryan says:

    If hills is out would you rather have hardesty over torain and battle?
    Have to drop one if pick up hardesty

  9. Adam says:

    With Felix jones out,would u pick up Murray and drop torain?

  10. Harley says:

    10 team, 2 QB league, 3-4 WR league (.5 ppr) – I have Romo, Newton, Bradford and Dalton at QB and Fitzgerald, L. Moore, Crabtree and Little at WR (clearly need help). I was offered Santonio Holmes for Bradford straight up. Thoughts?

  11. DD says:

    8 teams, 2qb league (Schaub&Hasselback)… 3wr–2rb–1TE– 2flx spots W/R & W/T… TE (O Daniels/Witten)– RB (AP/McCoy/F Jackson/Daniel Thomas)– WR = Reg Wayne; David Nelson; San Moss; Vin Jackson; Mike Thomas…
    Im being offered Mike Wallace straight up for Fred Jackson… Do you think thats a good trade? I can add Murray/Battle/Hardesty/Blount off waivers as fill in depending on matchups if necessary.

  12. Scott says:

    Murray,hardesty,or battle for waiver pickup this week in standard league?

  13. trick dad says:

    demaryus thomas over denarius moore ROS?

  14. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @anon: I think the trade is pretty good, but you still would be deep at WR and thin at RB…and you’d really be in trouble if this Benson suspension happens. Tough one, I guess I’d say if Hillis were 100% healthy, I wouldn’t do it, as you are still deep at WR so Smith wouldn’t make that much of an impact on your team. If you need to win now, do it and hope that Bennie doesn’t get suspended right away.

    @Rob: Damn I have Finley as well, he’s killing me! Every week I feel like he’s gonna go off and then he craps out again. As for Murray, yes I would drop Thomas for him.

    @Ryan: I would rather have Hardesty over Torain, but I think I’d stick with Battle ultimately. Hardesty faces two tough run defenses next up (Sea, SF).

    @Adam: Ya, I would. These next two games Murray should be the focal point and you never know when/if it will happen for Torain.

    @Harley: I would take that. You’d still be left with 2 good starting QBs and Dalton in case of bye/injury.

    @Scott: Battle. Seems like the best bet for long term work. Murray will fill in for a couple weeks and Hardesty faces some tough defenses in the next few weeks.

    @trick dad: Absolutely. I think Thomas will improve his stock now that Lloyd is out of Denver.

  15. HotCorner306 says:

    My running backs are paper thin and with Hillis going down, I need to look ahead. Options are Lynch, Choice, and Murray. The waiver wire has been depleted. I need one as a filler.

  16. HotCorner306 says:

    @Brubach…Sorry, that last post was intended for you.

  17. byrone says:

    ohhhhh i need some help, please. with best probably missing a game or two with the concussion, should i go maurice morris, or just add jonathan stewart, who is also sitting on FA? PPR league.

    thanks a lot!

  18. KeeblerMN says:

    Hi Doc,

    I have McCoy, Turner, Mathews, Best & Benson in a 10 team non PPR where we start 2 rb, 2 wr and 1 flex rb/wr
    My receivers are Austin, S. Smith (car) Wayne, Plaxico, Decker.

    I have been offered Fitzgerald for Turner straight up. I know I’m probably giving up too much but with my RB depth I think I do it…. or do I just stick with what I have?

  19. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @HotCorner306: I would rank them Lynch, Murray, Choice. Murray is the Dallas RB you want, but as much as it pains me, I think I might rather have Lynch. It looks like you’re gonna need a guy you could possibly get some long term production out of, and Felix will be back eventually, while Lynch will be the lone horse in Seattle.

    @byrone: Go get Stewart. He’s actually been catching a decent amount of passes this year and who knows how much work Morris will get. Stewart for sure.

    @KeeblerMN: I think the deal is fine. Like you said, you have crazy RB depth and after the deal you would still have the choice between Best/Benson/S. Smith/Wayne at flex each week. Not too shabby.

    @DD: Its not a horrible trade, but I don’t think I’d do it. Fred Jackson is unstoppable right now, and it looks like you could play one of you TE’s at your 2nd flex spots currently. Your weakest spot would be at WR3 obviously, but in an 8 teamer, there have got to be some other good WR options on the wire. If you feel like you can trust Thomas enough to stay healthy and rely on him, then do it. As of now, I think I’d stick with Fred.

  20. theguarantee says:

    How big of an upgrade is Romo over Flacco? I love Flacco’s playoff schedule which is basically why I drafted him…but being pretty set at RB/WR/TE and with a ridiculous amount of depth I was thinking about trying to upgrade there. Romo gets NYG, @TB, Phi. Flacco gets Indy, @SD, Cleve. Assuming I wouldn’t have to overpay, am I crazy for thinking Flacco is just as good of an option?

  21. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @theguarantee: I think Romo is a pretty good upgrade over Flacco. Lets look at week 13: Flacco gets Indy and Romo gets NYG. At the moment, NYG is giving up 245 yards passing per game, while Indy is giving up 255 per game. Granted, there are other metrics for measuring pass defenses, but the difference isn’t huge and I would play Romo there for sure. Its definitely a good theory, and something to look at, but I think Romo is the best bet if you’ve got the depth to sell off.

  22. byrone says:

    thanks jeff! i totally went stewart, then came back to see if you agree. you did! :D

    All your readers

  25. Ethan says:

    Hey! I’m a new reader of your site and I love it!
    My question is:
    Which route would you take with this lineup week 7? (8 team, PPR)
    QB: Matt Schaub, Matt Ryan, Matt Hasselbeck
    RB: Ahmad Bradshaw, Michael Turner, Frank Gore
    WR: Megatron, Nicks, Brandon Lloyd, Jordy Nelson, DHB, V. Cruz
    TE: Jimmy Graham, Brandon Pettigrew
    D/ST: Bengals, Giants
    K: Mason Crosby
    I would love to hear any and all suggestions you have for both this week and the future. Thanks so much!

  26. exactly says:

    need to start a flex tonight, go with greene or sanchez? it’s a PPR, with 1.5 pts for 10 rushing, and 1 pt for 20 passing. 6 tds for rushing, passing, receiving.

  27. zeke says:

    It looks like Jahvid Best has another concussion. I’ve been anticipating this and have Keiland Williams handcuffed on my bench thinking he is the #2, but he didn’t get a single carry yesterday as Mo Morris got all the love. Who do you think gets the most carries going forward if Best misses time? I realize that none of these options are ideal, but I play in a deep, non-ppr (even worse) league and there isn’t anything better on the wire. Thanks for the help.

  28. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @frog: dhb.harvin.Nelson.Simpson

    @ilikestuff: noted. I’ll use touchy from now on.

    @Ethan: Welcome…thanks for reading. lineup looks good. Id play your third rb at flex and keep cruising with megatron and nicks. Stick with schaub unless matchups warrant subbing in Ryan. good luck!

  29. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @exactly: that’s Mark Sanchez I’m assuming? If you are allowed to play a qb at flex, go for that.

  30. Ethan says:

    Thanks. Any Week 7 suggestions with all of the Giants and Frank Gore on bye?

  31. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @Ethan: check out the wire for fill in guys like Murray, Battle or Hardesty. Also see what else is out there…should be some decent options available in an 8 teamer.

    @zeke: tough situation. I do think it will be Morris but the presence of Williams makes me hesitant in endorsing him. Id bet on Morris but wait and see what we hear out of Detroit this week.

  32. Tourinct says:

    Can we get some header info on who is writing the article? Back in the old days it was always Doc, need to develop some level of trust with all these new voices.

  33. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @tourinct: Jeff Brubach here. I write the Smash Back on Thursdays. just filling in for Doc…he will be back with his other articles this week like normal.

  34. Gavin says:

    With Best suffering another concussion, is Jerome Harrison the play? Keiland Williams? Someone not on the Lions yet?

  35. Nick says:

    @Jeff: I have Gronkowski (w/ no other TE) and Henery (w/ no other K) on bye next week in my 10 team league. Heres what I got:

    QB-Schaub, Sanchez, Tebow (1qb start)
    RB- Forte, Best, Starks, Torain, Ridley, Murray (2 rb start + flex)
    WR- C Johnson, Holmes, M Thomas, D Moore, (3 wr start)
    TE-Gronk, K-Henery, D-Jets

    I was thinking of dropping either Torain or D Moore for a TE this week, which would you drop and would you take Watson, Dickson, Cook, Miller, Heap or Ballard?

    Then for Kicker, I was thinking of just dumping Henery and getting anyone, b/c who cares if someone claims my kicker, right?

    Lastly, with either Torain or D Moore remaining on my team after these transactions, would you dump one of them for D Thomas, DHB, James Jones, Torrey Smith? RB’s on waivers include Stewart (who i dumped), LT (who i dumped), Addai, K Hunter, C Williams, D Carter….but im not really interested in any RB on the waivers.

  36. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @Gavin: My first guess is Maurice Morris. He got 5 carries and added a catch on Sunday, and Harrison/Williams didnt get any work. However, Harrison/Williams were more involved prior. Id wait until we hear more from Detroit this week but if I had to pick I’d go with Mo Morris.

  37. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @Nick: I would drop Moore in a 10 teamer right now…and I wouldnt be afraid to let Sanchez go in a league that size either. As for TE, I’d give Cook a shot, he’s got the skills and Hass seems to be getting more comfortable with him. For kicker, just cut him loose and dont sweat it. Kickers are kickers. After all of this, if you’re left with Torain, I think I might go with Stewart slightly ahead of him if you’re looking RB or DHB if you wanna pick up a wide out.

  38. Blain Train says:

    Hi Jeff, I’ve got terrible luck with injuries so far this season. I knew what I was getting into with Foster when drafting, but Britt, Blount, and now Felix all have me banging my head against the wall.

    In a 12 team std league, is it worth holding Ridley (the NE RB committee seems to belong to BJGE), Delone Carter (assuming Addai returns in Week 7), or D Nelson (bye week)?? I need to drop one of them to hopefully get MoMorris. Thanks!

  39. Blain Train says:

    OOps. I meant DeMarco Murray, not Morris… Thanks for your insight

  40. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @Blain Train: Ouch, with that kind of RB situation going on, I think I would hold on to Carter and Ridley in case somehow they emerge in those situations. I think I’d drop Nelson and get as many potential starting RB’s as possible.

  41. herschel says:

    @Jeff: ppr league trade offer. my rothlisberger, harvin and jer finley for his kolb, boldin and best. i also have tebow at qb and gronk at te. hit accept?

  42. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @herschel: I would make certain I knew the entire situation with Best and this concussion before I accept the deal, but ya, it looks good if youve got Gronk and Tebow still. Looks like Best may be out this week and who knows after that, so keep an eye on the situation before you take the deal.

  43. ringo says:

    I got lots of my players on bye next week with Mike Thomas acting as my flex for next week. Should I drop Mike Thomas or maybe David Nelson for either Maurice Morris or Tashard Choice, I am fairly certain they will be better options than Mike Thomas next week and in the immediate future, and really isn’t FF all about the immediate future? Kind of sidetracked there, are those 2 RBs worth a pickup though? Thank You

  44. blaster says:

    would you rather have Mark Sanchez or Kevin Kolb on a roster?

  45. ringo says:

    Other droppable players include Stevan Ridley or Bernard Scott, I am in a 16 team league so you got to jump on those RBs when they come available.

  46. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @ringo: I would drop Thomas for Morris, as it looks like he will be filling in for Best if he misses time. As for Choice, I think he’ll get some work in Felix’s absence, but Murray will get the majority of the carries. Go with Murray over Choice if he’s out there as well. I agree, in a league that deep hold onto Ridley and Scott.

    @blaster: This is a tough one but I actually think I’d prefer Sanchez. Both have been pretty bad lately but Kolb has only thrown 1 TD since week 2. I’d go with Sanchez.

  47. ringo says:

    I didn’t read any of the other comments until after I posted. I saw Blain Train and I had similar problems, Thank You Very Much

  48. elwood blues says:

    My RB situation for week 7 is a mess. Bradshaw(bye) and Best(hurting).
    We start 2 rbs(.05 ppr) On my bench I have S-Jax, Ridley, and Helu.

    So pencil in Jackson.

    On the waives there’s Moore, Morris, T-Jones, Tate.. how would you rank them?
    Dropping Helu, for whomever I get.

  49. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @elwood blues: I’d rank them Morris, T-Jones, Moore, Tate. Not sure if I’d drop Helu for anyone else besides Morris, however. DeMarco Murray and Battle are taken already, Im assuming?

  50. elwood blues says:

    oops. I meant murray.

  51. elwood blues says:

    I can also drop D.Alexander.. he’s way down on my bench.
    or Ridley?

  52. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @elwood blues: I thought you might have meant Murray…I was going with Mewelde Moore haha…I’d put DeMarco at the top of your list.

  53. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @elwood blues: Hold on to Ridley, I’d drop Alexander.

  54. elwood blues says:

    Cool.. thnx.

  55. Blain Train says:

    Jeff, this is a follow-up strategy question to my RB dilemma mentioned above with Felix & Blount both out. I’m 2-4 and only one game out of my soft division, but I need to win now. My most trade-able positions are QB (Tebow & Freeman) and TE (Pettigrew & Gates). Would you trade Freeman after his solid Week 6 game and ride the “Mile High Messiah” for the rest of season? Should I look to trade Gates or Pettigrew? Would you pair them with Felix or Blount to get a solid RB2 or better in return? I guess I’m asking which will have more Rest of Season value out of Felix or Blount? I’m thinking Blount has more upside, especially with Felix’s shoulder + ankle and other DAL weapons. Thanks for your help on this long comment.

  56. Jeff Brubach

    Jeff Brubach says:

    @Blain Train: With that much injury trouble going on, I could see you trying to dump some of that depth for sure. I’d roll with Tebow if it meant getting myself an improved RB, so packaging Freeman and Blount might be an idea. I figure Blount/Felix about a wash for the rest of the year, although Im partial to Felix if both are healthy. Maybe fish around and see what Gates will get you now that he’s going to be back. Pettigrew is getting lots of looks lately so you could stick with him in hopes of Gates getting you an RB. good luck.

  57. Tourinct says:

    Thanks for the info. Thoughts on Brown in Det?

  58. Clueless says:

    I was just offered this trade in a PPR – I’m tempted to take it but would like some input

    I get Greg Jennings, he gets S Greene, M Tolbert & V Cruz.

    His only RB’s are Blount and Starks so he is hurting at RB, If I took this trade it would leave me thin at RB, but I think I could use my extra WR’s and/or Tebow to trade for an RB better then Greene and Tolbert or grab D Murray off waivers

    My current Roster

    S Moss
    V Cruz

    D Sproles
    M Tolbert
    S Greene

    J Finley

    @tourinct: No problem. I’m not too excited about Brown in Detroit. Best still has a shot to play this week and I’ve got a feeling Morris will still get touches in the passing game. worth a shot for sure but I’m not expecting much.

    @clueless: since the other team is strapped at RB, play hardball and try to get something thrown in with Jennings..but I dont have a problem with the deal. Jennings will keep up the big numbers and greene sucks in ppr.
