  • Whoops Also wanted ur advice for PPR Flex …IF Sproles plays go with him or is Brye Brown a better play against Carolina ..Thanx

    • I like Locker this week. Watch the news on McCoy this week but if he sits I like Brown better.

  • Desperately Need a fill in for Big Ben ..Kaepernick, Cutler, Locker , Wilson (Tried Foles last week and he killed me) Lost buy 5pts and now fighting for p/o Life

  • 14 Team PPR: Staff, Mega, Crab, Alexander, Martin, Charles, Chandler (bye week fill in), Andre Brown, Bennett, Britt, Beanie, Garcon. Just traded Decker for Charles & dropped Ivory for Garcon. Should I start Crabtree vs. Bears or Garcon vs. Phi as WR2?

    • Crabtree to be safe. Worried about Garcon’s foot.

  • I proposed Vernon for Reece, what about Vernon for Garcon? He has Hernandez & Finley at TE.

  • H.Miller or Myers ros?

    • Probably Myers now with Ben out for a while, but still close

  • Which two would you start of the following 3?

    Julio Jones (vs. Arizona)
    Jordy Nelson (@Detroit)
    Denarius Moore (vs. New Orleans)


    • Julio and Jordy. However, Julio is a game time call on Sunday so pay close attention to the news surrounding his status.

  • Would you trade TRich in return for S. Ridley plus any one (1) of these WRs: VJax, Colston or Amendola? If so, pls rank which WR to ask for.


    • I would probably keep TRich, but if you did the deal I would rank them Colston, VJax, Amendola

  • Two trade offers I’ve received in my 12 team nonPPR

    Trade 1 i get Romo and Andre Johnson I give SJax and Dwayne Bowe

    Trade 2 I get M. LeShoure and J. Bell I give Lance Moore and Daniel Thomas

    I’d be getting a WR upgrade over Bowe and can play matchups at QB with Romo, Rivers and Luck. While I’d be losing SJax as my flex guy I’d have the Detroit backfield locked up with LeShoure and Bell. And would use LeShoure as my weekly flex.

    Should I do these deals?
    My roster
    QB- Luck WR- Dem. Thomas, Fitz, Bowe
    RB- Forte, Spiller Flex- SJax
    TE- Daniels K- Prater D- Balt
    Bench- Rivers, DRich, DHB, Cincy D, N. Washington, Lance Moore

    • And I now have a third trade offer. I get Foster and Dez. I give Forte, Fitz and Luck. Do all three?

      • Wow, lots of trade action, nice. I think these sound pretty good. You would end up with a solid team after all three deals. Romo/Rivers at QB isnt bad considering the upgrades you would get at RB and WR. If you’re comfortable with it, go for it.

  • Ya, I would do that deal with your current group of RBs

    • Pretty stoked, he accepted it! 10 Team PPR: Luck, Eli, Wayne, Marshall, Cruz, Dez, Amendola, Rice, AP, DMC, Beanie, D Thomas, Gates, Vernon, HOU. Our trade deadline is the 30th, thinking about trying to trade Vernon, I realize the only teams that will bite have to be pretty desperate at TE. What kind of player is Vernon worth?

      • Good looking team. I don’t think you are really going to get anything for Vernon Davis these days, but its worth a shot. I guess you could shoot for a lower level WR.

  • Ya, I agree. I think it’s pretty even.

  • D. Alexander or beanie wells in the flex spot for the rest of the season?

    • I think Alexander is going to be pretty solid. I lean his way.

  • 14 Team PPR: Would you trade Decker for Charles? Here is my team, our trade deadline is today. Staff, Mega, Decker, Crabtree, Alexander, Britt, Martin, Ivory, A Brown, Beanie, Bennett, Chandler (bye week fill in, dropping him asap), Janikowski, SF D.

  • Would you trade McGahee for D. Moore….my RBs are Gore, Spiller, MJD, Stephens Howling..my WRS are Harvin, Hartline, Shorts, Kerley..thinking its probably a decent deal for me given my shortage of WRs.

    • Ya, I agree. I think it’s pretty even.

  • ROS. Mendy or LSH?

    • Also, Heyward Bey or Andre Roberts?

      • Mendy and DHB

  • Who do you like more for ROS? Dez Bryant or Larry Fitz? Non PPR LEAGUE.

    • I actually think Dez has more upside. I’d take him

      • I agree but I’m curious to see how the bye week helped the Cards offense. Deadline is tomorrow so I gotta make a decision tonight. Leaning towards making the swap to get Dez.

  • help! daniel thomas or chris ivory? 12 team non ppr

    • Sorry I missed you, but I would have said Ivory! I swear haha

  • Also, would you start one of those guys over Malcolm Floyd this week since he will most likely have Champ Bailey all over him?

    • I would start Sproles over him probably. None of the others though

  • 10 team PPR league. I have to fill a few flex spots in a league with a lot of starters. Start 3 of these 4 “D’s”: Donnie Avery, Donald Jones, Darren Sproles (only a question because of the health concern), Dustin Keller

    • I would go with Avery, Jones and Sproles

  • PICK 2: Morris, Ridley, Richardson, McGahee, DMC
    PICK 2: Moore, Nelson, Cobb, James Jones, Crabtree, Donald Jones
    FLEX (Pick 1 from the above)

    I’m leaning Morris, Ridley, Richardson, Nelson and Cobb.

    • I think the 5 you have picked there are pretty solid.

  • Where would you rank Garcon if he is active?

    • low 30’s probably

  • Current team hurting at RB

    QB- Romo
    WR – Fitz, Bryant, Cobb
    RB – DMC, F-jax, Wells, Jennings, Reece
    TE – Miller

    Matthews owner looking to unload him for a WR…tried to get him to take llyod wouldnt bite only options are either fitz or bryant….im a little reluctant to trade bryant because i have romo and i think hes in for a decent stretch run right now…whereas fitz has a horrendous stretch run schedule and is just as inconsistent as bryant…who would you rather give up for matthews?

    • I agree with your line of thinking here. You are going to have to make a move of some sort to stay in the hunt so if it takes Fitz to get Mathews, I wouldn’t have too much of a problem with that.

      • sweet thanks man appreciate the input

  • Am I crazy for benching Marshall and starting Denarius instead? Maybe take a game to see how Marshall does with Campbell at QB? I just feel like Denarius is going to destroy it this week!

    • I agree, Moore is going to be awesome this week. I think they are close enough for you to make that switch if it would make you more comfortable.

  • Start 2 this week: 0.5 PPR

    Wallace, M. Willians, DHB, Shorts

    Rank for ROS: 0.5 PPR

    Decker, Wallace, Amendola, D. Moore, Britt, Shorts


    • Wallace/M. Williams
      Decker, Amendola, D. Moore, Wallace, Shorts, Britt

  • ppr can u pick two: torrey smith, danario alexander, donnie avery?

    • Torrey and Alexander, but its close

  • One more QB question. Luck or Freeman. Thanks again

    • Go with Luck.

  • Stafford or Palmer, .5 per completion. Thank you.

    • Staff should be good this week. Go with him.

  • Building out my bench and would appreciate your advice ROS, PPR 0.5:

    QB (Pick 1): R. Wilson or J. Locker?
    WR/TE Pick (1): D. Alexander, R. Broyles, J. Cook?
    RBs (Pick 4): M. Ingram, B. Pierce, R. Turbin, J. Starks, J. Dwyer, J. Stewart, E. Royster, R. Hillman, D. Wilson?

    • Locker
      JStew/Starks/Ingram/Dwyer…unless you have Lynch/Rice/McGahee, in which case I would take one of the handcuffs.

  • PPR league, can start 3 of the following. Who do you like.

    Decker vs sd
    Andre Johnson Vs jax
    Dez vs cle
    Amendola Vs nyj

    • I like the top 3

  • Own Mathews and would like to start him over Felix Jones/Reece but not understanding the rank. He’s been getting pulled for Brown by Turner in passing situations/playing behind. Why the #10 rank this week – am I missing something? Thanks!

    • Mathews actually out carried Brown 17-4 last week and was targeted twice as much (6-3). Mathews is still getting huge workload and that is pretty valuable. I do think Reece is a good play this week too, and I have him only 4 spots below Mathews.

  • So do I start both Miami RBs? I’d normally prefer not to but only other option is Donario Alexander at the flex.

    • I think you could play Alexander at your flex. He is getting a solid amount of looks in the SD offense and looks like a good option. Great matchup for Miami this week though, so I do understand the temptation to play both. I would go Bush/DX this week, but this week should give us a better idea of how the Miami backfield will be split up going forward.
