I could just pick up Pierce for Rice but someone owns Jones.

Well Harvin got put on IR so I dropped him for Myers. If I advance and need someone I'll just go give the guy more money and drop Hillman or Jennings down the road.

What's your guys' thoughts on Matty Ice this week? I'm up against 1st place and I'm actually projected to win. Furthermore his projections might be pretty inaccurate as he has Matt Ryan at QB. Also dressing a slumping Erick Decker, and the limited/injured Mike Wallace at WR.

I think I may actually have a chance at it (need a W for playoffs) if AJ Green and one or Lynch/Brown have big games.

Very nice. I'm surprised someone would trade AP for Foster. Your RBs are ridiculous.

I'd drop Jennings. He was terrible when he was the guy, he currently has a concussion, and Moreno's injury prone, so one would have to figure Hillman would be next in line there, so at least there's upside.

Ridley only has good weeks against bad run Ds, now sure with the Patriots offense it's still very possible he sneaks in a TD, but I like your other options better for this week.

So I made a offer to someone... I offered him

Peyton Manning (I know it Manning, but the guy has thrown 7 interception in 6 games now, plus he hasnt gone over 20 points in a while)
Trent Richardson (He has done wonders for me, has gotten over 10 points like 6 games in a row, but he has a tough schedule with skins, denver and pitts having good run defenses)
Hakeem Nicks (been on my bench for a while, dont necessarily need him)
San Fran (great defense in real life, not so good in fantasy)

for

Cam Newton
Ben Jarvis Green Elis
Lance Moore
Chicago Bears

what do you guys think?

I don't think you should do it. Other than a fantasy upgrade at QB (and even that's kind of a stretch), there's not a lot that I see that would excite me. I think T-Rich and BJGE cancel each other out, Nicks is better than Moore (who is hit or miss) and the Bears D, while still the No. 1 defense in fantasy points-wise (at least for my leagues), has been slipping as of late.

So...Vernon Davis has been a bust. I have Scott Chandler on my bench.

Should I pick up one of these options: Tony Scheffler, Joel Dreessen, or Dallas Clark?

EDIT: Clay Harbor is also available.

I lost my first round matchup. I was first place in the regular season and of course I draw a team who decides to put up the most points this week and 45 points above his season average. If he put up his season average I win easily. Horrible.

Anyway, my league has three keeps. I have AJ Green as a 9th round dynasty keeper. My other two I'm thinking are going to Denario Alexander (SD-16th rounder) and Stephen Ridley (NE-4th rounder). The only thing I was considering was also keeping Ray Rice (BAL-1st rounder), but based on everyone else's teams I may only have three picks in front of me anyway.

Dwayne Bowe is probably going to placed on IR. My list of injuries is hilarious.

You'll have to check on his status. Pretty sure he broke his finger...or at least injured it badly. Last I saw he was getting it checked today. No update on if he can continue to play or not.

Start looking at the waivers just in case.

I'd go for either Dressen or Clark.

Dressen has less "big game" potential, but he'll steadily get you 3-5 catches on maybe 40-50yards. There are just too many weapons on the Broncos for Peyton to use for Dresson to be a real threat.

Clark has been a touchdown target for Freeman of late, but he's had a couple stinkers mixed in with only 1 or 2 catches. You better hope he gets a score.

I recently lost both Jared Cook, and now Brent Celek. Ended up gambling on Clark going into the playoffs.

Week 15... Obviously going to keep going back to AJ Green despite the slump,

Then I've got got Cecil Shorts (concussion issues), Jennings (not reliable production), L. Moore (coming off a stinker), and Garcon.

D. Alexander, Blackmon and Gordon are on waivers.

What a mess. Basically..

Green, Garcon, ________.

Would stick with Moore, has a fantastic matchup against TB. If not, pick up Danario.

Lost Pettigrew, but won my first round game without him (and 1 pt from my kicker). What TE should I pickup?

Dallas Clark
Tony Scheffler
Scott Chandler
Mercedes Lewis
Ben Watson

Lions love to use the TE (more targets than any other team by about 30). I bet Scheffler has a good few weeks coming up.

Hasn't Chandler proved himself to be rather productive this season? I'd vote for him.

I'd go with Scheffler. Stafford's going to keep chucking up 50 passes a game so Scheffler is bound to get a bunch of targets, even with Megatron there.

I keep squeaking through week-to-week. Just advanced to round 2 by less than 2 points.

I have no idea what to do with my RBs. I have Richardson, Ballard, Wells, and Rodgers. Obviously going to play Richardson. Ballard has a bad matchup (vs HOU) and Wells and Rodgers aren't solid options. Do I go with Ballard or look to the waiver wire for someone like Wilson or Powell?

I have Houston's D (against Indy this week), but considering getting Detroits just for this week against the Cardinals. Detroit's D isn't too impressive, but Arizona is just so bad.

Do I dare?

Kind of a tough decision for me this week.

Had a first round bye so I'm in the semi-finals. My quarterbacks are Matthew Stafford and Josh Freeman. I started out with Eli Manning, swapped him for Freeman straight up right around the time Eli was struggling and Freeman was heating up, then grabbed Stafford as a throw in just before the deadline and started him the last 3 weeks over Freeman.

Now we get to this week and if I win I'm in the finals and guaranteed at least 2nd place money. Lose and I get $0.

Stafford is at Arizona, who have been brutal as a team lately but are 3rd ranked against QBs this season. Calvin Johnson is Calvin Johnson but he'll be matched up with Patrick Peterson all game. With Ryan Broyles and Titus Young done for the season, Brandon Pettigrew banged up and likely out this week, Stafford doesn't have many other quality options to throw to.

Freeman on the other hand has a great match up at New Orleans. Torched them for 420 yds and 3 TDs in their first meeting. Will be playing in a dome. He should have a multiple touchdown day. TDs are worth 6 points in this league.

My opponent however has Calvin Johnson though. Do I play it safe and start Stafford, so any Stafford to Calvin touchdowns offset?

Thoughts?
