    I’m in a 12-team standard league. My record is 2-4-1 My team consist of Romo, Foster, AP, Colston, AJ Green, Antonio Brown, Nate Washington, Rudolph, Pettigrew, Andre Brown and William Powell. I think I need a upgrade at QB. What QB should I target and who should I give up for them? Or do you think I should just hold put for now.

    I’m also pretty high on the waiver wire ranking might be getting Rashard Jennings. If I get him would that change your opinion on who I should target and/or trade?

    I’ve appreciated your help so far this season! I’ve followed your advice and hung on to McFadden.

    Got another one for you to look at. How about trading Garcon for Maclin? I’m the Garcon owner currently. It’s not a PPR league.

    Another player wants to trade LeSean McCoy. He’s seeking another RB (stud) and a second-level WR. Thinking about offering:

    McFadden and Garcon. Already have Marshall, Harvin, Gates, Amendola (start 3). Other RBs = Mathews, Reggie and Hillis (start 2).

    Because of the new blocking scheme in Oakland, McFadden makes me extremely nervous. Seems like a good time to get rid of him. What is your opinion?

    Thanks so much for any help you can send my way!


    in 20 manager ppr idp league and once again (despite having to pick 19th based on where I finished last yr) I have one of the strongest teams.

    I have 2 questions

    1) I have Kevin Smith and would really like to trade for Leshoure. The Manager that has him needs WR’s. who would you offer him for leshoure… Randy Moss, Lafell, or Amendola?

    2) and regarding who to start @ WR… Wallace (Revis island) Moss, Lafell, Amendola or Steve Smith (Rams). I need to start 2

    Thank you so much for all your help
