    Hey Guys So I have QB Dilemma ..Cutler and Ryan Both with same bye week. trying to Package one and another player in a 2 for 1 deal. . Which QB would want to Keep and Roll with ROS .QB It’s a 10 team PPR so I could grab a week 9 Streamer off Waivers… THX!!

  2. the imp says:

    I’m 5-1 in 12 PPR with 3 starting WR. The Harvin trade has created a bye week problem for the squad as I only have ABrown and Wallace to play with Decker/Harvin/VJax stuck on the bench.
    Due to roster limits, I’d have to drop Harvin for a Hunter/Hawkins sort of bye week fill-in to avoid a zero. (Decker can’t be dropped and presumably VJax has more ROS value).
    Who is your NYJ receiver to own? Would you drop Harvin to avoid a zero?

    • Jeff says:

      Boy this is a weird one. I generally advocate not taking the zero but with this situation, I think I probably would due to this NYJ fiasco. Or maybe hit the phones hard tonight and try to work a 2-for-1 trade somehow before kickoff tomorrow.

      • the imp says:

        Thanks for the Harvin help.
        Would it be too much to offer FJax and Harvin to get Marshall?
        My other RBs (start 2) are Forte, Tate and JBell.

  3. DiRo says:

    I was just offered in 0.5 PPR league Lacey and Harvin for my Vereen, I should accept this right away, this is too good to pass up right!?

  4. football says:

    pick up kearse drop clay harbor or jared cook? I have witten also

  5. Steve C says:

    So in 10 Team PPR have Monte Ball Stashed on the bench .. Obviously he hasn’t preformed as Expected and Honestly not sure of his value of keeping the job.? Do I hang on to hm or drop for Hillman ? SO Could u rank for ROS Ball, Hillman, Matehws and Ingram.. as the ONE to own? Thanx

    • Jeff says:

      Ugh. If you need wins now I would rank Hillman highest. Hard to say without knowing exactly how long Ball will be out. If you have no other options to drop and are in danger of missing the playoffs, I could see it.

  6. MuchOptions says:

    Such depth, much options….PPR bonus league(yds/long plays/long TD’s)

    need flex help…Cooks or Crabtree

    already have Jeffery and Hilton locked in as starters.

    TE Cameron or Donnell? Im leaning Cameron I could also add Donnell into flex consideration seeing how the Cowboys dont cover TE very well.

    Appreciate the input.

    • Jeff says:

      I like Cooks this week, He should get fed quite a few targets with Graham out. And then at TE I’d play Cameron against Jacksonville’s crusty D.

  7. fenster55 says:

    Hey Jeff,
    Huge fan of you guys and won my league last year based on your rankings and articles. This year I have gotten off to a rough start and looking at a trade.
    Standard League scoring and Current Roster
    WR Julio Jones
    WR G. Tate
    WR Michael Floyd
    RB Lacy
    RB Hillman
    TE Gronk
    Flex Z. Stacy
    Bench, my bench is garbage.. Cunningham, Bowe, Hurns, J Hunter
    Trade offer is Gore or Mckinnon and Mike Wallace for Lacy.
    Thanks for all you do!

    • Jeff says:

      Thanks for reading, Fenster!

      I understand the need to make a deal here for sure, but I think I’d shoot just a little higher with Lacy. I think I’d need a little better RB in return.

  8. Mike says:

    Pick 2: Golden, Edelman, Floyd or Andre Johnson?

  9. football says:

    half ppr. Decker vs Crabtree

    thank you

  10. Zach says:

    Given the sloppy weather forecast for tonight’s Pats game, i’m inclined to bench Vereen in my PPR league for either Keenan Allen or Torrey Smith… at some point this week i have had one of the three in my lineup. I have no clue here…

  11. Norman says:

    I have Heath, right now I have waivers for Harbor & Cook. Would you start either over Heath? A good friend want to trade Vernon,would you start Vernon over any of these options? If so, what should I propose?
    My Team: Luck, Dez, Edelman, D Murray, FJax, Heath, Wayne, Allen, Stacy, Jimmy, Vereen, Anderson, Hunter.
    His Team: Cam, Crab, Hopkins, Gore, J Hill, Cameron, TY, Martin, Boldin, Rainey, Torrey, A Smith, Vernon.

    • Jeff says:

      I’d probably lean towards Cook this week but I wouldnt give anything of value for Vernon Davis, as he wouldnt be too much of an upgrade over those other TE’s.
