  • My Recieving squad is banged up this week… Need 3 of these Torrey Smith, Desean Jackson, Austin Collie, Golden Tate and Denarius Moore

  • Who would you rather have ROS as backup QB: Fitzpatrick, Schaub, Cassel? Thx

  • PPR/6TD – Lance Moore or Dennis Pitta?

    • Pitta in PPR

    • If Colston doesn’t go I’d go with Moore though

  • Need three of the following for standard non ppr scoring
    Stevie Johnson
    Malcolm Floyd

    Am I crazy to bench Fitz this week?

    • Not crazy, but in standard I’d sit Danny.

  • 14 Team 1pt PPR
    Need help on a third WR

    G Jennings…..Injury plus monday night concerns me
    N Washington
    G Little
    A Collie


    • If you want to stay away from the risk of Jennings, go with Little. Collie is dicey, and Nate Washington isn’t a great play. Hopefully Little can build on his week 2.

  • 1pt PPR
    Need help on a third WR

    G Jennings…..Injury plus monday night concerns me
    N Washington
    G Little
    A Collie


  • I was offered Jerome Simpson for Alfred Morris, PPR.

    Long term value of Andrew Hawkins versus Donnie Avery, PPR.


    • The Simpson for Morris deal would depend on the structure of the rest of your roster, but I like Morris more and Avery as well.

  • Steven Jackson, Chris Johnson or Pierre Thomas?

    • If we’re talking this week, Chris Johnson with SJax banged up

  • Who would you trade Spiller for? I’m kind of on the fence about trading him. He has tremendous skills to but up alot of points but I worry about what happens when Jackson comes back. I offered Him and Rice for Mccoy seeing if an owner would bite. WHat do you think?

    • Sidney Rice, I’m assuming?

    • Yup, was gonna start low and see if he would bite. Was going to add torrey smith in my next offer if he declined

  • Flacco or Cutler? Michael Bush or Reggie Bush?

    • Go with Flacco and Mike

  • Pick 3 in a 1PPR League

    L McCoy/C Spiller/D Murray/M. Bush

    Good to have hard decisions like this one. ;)

    • ha yes it is! Go with the first three.

  • PPR choose two: Ridley, Kevin Smith and Daryl Richardson. Also, standard scoring Stevie Johnson or Brandon Lloyd assuming lloyd plays.

    • Ridley/Smith unless SJax is out, then Ridley/Richardson. Then go Lloyd

  • ppr flex spot. Would you go with either: Ben Tate -coach goes by feel = his touches. Or LeShoure -good matchup and already said to have ~15 touches.

    • I would go with Tate. He is more of a known commodity. Leshoure is a bit more risky this week until we see what his workload looks like.

  • still shopping for a flex. Revis back, PG out? so Ogletree, Hartline or Hankerson? non ppr drop Ogletree or Ballard for one of the other 2

    • Still probably Hartline of those, although the other two have decent matchups.

  • Last bench spot. Drop David Wilson now? pick up: Helu, K Hunter, Tubin, *D Richardson, A Robinson, L Hankerson, or B. Hartline? I also have S Jackson as RB3

    • If you’ve got SJax, I would drop Wilson for D. Richardson for sure

  • 12 team redraft non ppr. Gerhardt and Hillman dropped, either or both worth a grab? sitting on Ballard right now. we start 2RBs and a flex

    • Give Ballard another week or two

  • Fred Jackson was just put on waivers. Was thinking about picking him up, who should I drop out of Jacquizz Rodgers, Justin Blackmon, Devon Bess, Kevin Ogeltree

    • My starters are Larry Fitz, Bowe, Stevie Johnson, at RB I have Trent richardson, forte, ryan matthews, and peyton hillis

    • I would dump Bess for him

  • That depends on what your situation is at WR. If you are thin there and need WR help, obviously pick up Hartline. However, if you have the bench space to spare its not a horrible idea. Seattle would be a nice addition.

    • I have harvin, decker, m. williams, and s. rice. It;s .5 ppr too.

  • I am streaming defenses right now. Currently I have Arizona. Seattle and Detroit are both available. I have a bench player I am dropping as well this week. Would I be better off grabbing two of these 3 and alternating them, or just keep going one at a time and pick up Hartline instead?

  • A. Morris or Ridley in 0.5 PPR league?

    • Ridley

  • 1PPR
    Pick 2

    PercyHarven/Demarius Thomas/Antonio Brown

    • Harvin for sure, then Brown

  • trade leshoure fro eric decker?

    • Depends on the rest of your roster, but if you are set at RB and need WR help, I think that’s a solid deal.

  • My running backs are DMC and Martin. Guy offers me Ridley for Nicks. My appropriate counter would be: VJax, Lloyd, Denarius Moore, Austin Collie, or Kyle Rudolph. He’s hurting at WR btw.

    • Counter with VJax unless you want to low ball with a package of Moore/Collie/Rudolph but that probably won’t get you anywhere. VJax should get it done if he’s desperate.

  • Would you trade MJD and Romo for Aaron Rodgers, I have DMC and Trent Richardson as my other running backs.
    If i make the trade i would have to use Bolden or Moore as my flex instead of Richardson

    • I would keep Romo and the advantage you have at flex with MJD

  • Sup fellas…non-ppr sjax, lafell, or t smith?

    • Tough because LaFell plays tonight. I would wait until the weekend. If the news about SJax sounds good, play him. If he gets scratched on Sunday, sub in Smith.

  • Of these five running backs, which two would you start?
    1. Darren McFadden
    2. Doug Martin
    3. Michael Bush
    4. Marshawn Lynch
    5. Stevan Ridley

    • Doug Martin and Beeeeaaaaaaast Mode

  • Which three WRs should I choose to start from Brandon LaFell, Mike Wallace, Larry Fitzgerald, Jeremy Maclin, and Stevie Johnson? Thanks in advance for your advice.

    • in a non-ppr league*

    • Doubt that Maclin plays so he’s out. I would play Wallace/Fitz/Stevie J.

  • Who would you rather have for the rest of the year? Kyle rudolph or dennis pitta? PPR league one point per reception.

    • Pitta. Looks like he’s gonna get way more action in the passing game.

  • start Laurent Robinson or Jon baldwin

    • Baldwin

  • thoughts on possible trade:

    receive: mjd, dez
    give up: charles, marshall, hillis

    also i think i could choose between fitz or dez to get. I have romo if that factors in to the decision. what do you think?

    • I think the deal is ok. MJD is safer than Charles, so I think the deal it works. Keep Dez in there.

  • DMC or Doug Martin? (non-ppr) Thanks!

    • Dougie!

  • drop Ryan Williams for Andrew Hawkins?

    • Depends on the structure of your roster, but if you are stacked at RB and need WR help, I don’t think its a terrible idea.

  • Should i trade Chris Johnson and DHB for Larry Fitzgareld? I have good depth so thats not a big problem.

    • Of both CJ and Fitz who are starting slow, I would consider Fitz much more likely to get things turned around. I think the deal is decent enough to pull the trigger.

  • How come the saints are not on the list?

    • Their D is on there, gotta scroll down a bit

  • Little dilemma. Need to pick 2 guys to start. .5 PPR. DWill vs NYG, DMartin vs. Dallas, D Brown vs JAX, DMC vs PIT, or Andre Brown vs CAR.

    Leaning towards Dougie and Andre. But D Brown entices me alot and it is real hard to bench DMC. HELP!!

    • Doug Martin for sure, then I would still ride with DMC but Andre Brown would be a close 2b
