  • I have Run-DMC, Lynch and Cedric Benson as RBs with Redman and Bilal Powell on the bench. I drafted Taiwan Jones as a handcuff but dropped him since it seems like he is not really DMC’s backup. Goodson is not available but Turbin is – would it make sense to drop Redman and pick up Turbin?

    Also, would you drop Redman, Jerome Simpson or Powell to pick up Tebow? I don’t need him at QB (have Ryan and Palmer as backup) but if he suddenly becomes a starter, I would love to trade him to someone.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Maybe I’m getting bored..stick with Martin or trade for McFadden?thunking of trading Martin and dez or Austin for garcon and McFadden. Thoughts? I’ve got Julio +Reggie Wayne already and McCoy as my rb1 and this is a PPR

    • You can. I like Martin and Mathews to turn things around.

  • @Chet: re: the PPR trade above (Brady for Ben and alf), I would be trading for Brady. Currently have romo and rothlisberger at qb. Morris is my flex (behind McCoy and lynch) and I would replace him with Dez. J stew would be my next best RB. Thoughts?

  • Chet, a guy in my league is shopping Rodgers and he wants a RB. 10 Team, 1pt PPR, 6pt TDs. QBs get 1pt 25 yrds, and bonuses at 250 (2), 300 (4), 350 (6). We play QB, 2RB, 3WR, TE, K, DEF (no flex). He offered Rodgers for McCoy, but I refused. He seems to be interested in Murray now, because nobody is giving up backs. If he’ll take Murray straight up, seems like a no-brainer. Yes?

    My team:
    QB: Romo / Ponder
    RB: McCoy, Murray, T. Rich, LeShoure, R. Williams
    WR: Harvin, Bowe, Amendola, L. Moore, Britt
    TE: Graham
    ———————-
    His team:
    QB: Rodgers, Eli
    RB: McGahee, SJax, Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell
    WR: Cruz, Jennings, A. Brown, K. Wright., Massaquoi, Kerley
    TE: V. Davis

  • Great chart! I’m trying to glean which players are undervalued by looking at this plus your Red Zone data… Perhaps Kendall Wright getting high % of targets on a team that throws on a lot of RZ plays? Sid Rice or D. Avery for similar logic?

  • @Chet: PPR league, brady for rothlisberger and alf morris. which side? thanks.

    • It’s close and depends on the team. I might lean the Ben side if it fit my team well.

  • please rank ROS: spiller, murray, martin…thanks!!

    • Murray, Martin, Spiller, but very close and Spiller is a wildcard.

  • Thanks for the data.
    Amazing how many folks Jennings beats despite his injury problems. Get well soon!
    Also didn’t realize CLE passed so much with so little rosterable output due to ineptness and spreading the targets around.
    It shows how little SEA, SF, JAX and CAR like to throw when they are behind the two teams that have already had byes in total attempts.
    How would you compares D. Avery to D. Moore’s outlook for PPR–they have similar target numbers over the three games they have each played?

    • I have to lean Moore’s way. I like Avery a lot, but Hilton and Brazill could take away looks and Moore should be the main guy if healthy.
