QB Aaron Rodgers

WR Santonio Holmes, Dez Bryant, Stevie Johnson
TE Jimmy Graham
D/ST Cowboys
K Matt Bryant
Bench:
QB Peyton Manning
RB Mark Ingram
WR Sydney Rice
WR James Jones
TE Brent Celek
D/ST Chiefs
trade a QB for a RB and get a D from waiver wire

move Steve Johnson and Beanie Wells for anything else with a pulse

Ahhh, I love drafting the leading rusher/highest scoring RB in fantasy in a 14 team keeper league in the 7th round

CJ Spiller looks absolutely amazing.10.0 YPC, first player since Jim Brown to have that in the first 2 weeks...I could see 1600+ total yards with 14+ TDs...he is a stud.

Why would he trade his best WR??Especially since your pretty much telling him to trade Stevie for garbage

Stevie Johnson>Dez Bryant & Santonio Holmes, easily.

I left C.J. Spiller and Eli Manning on the bench, had Larry Fitzgerald get 4 yards, and Finley get 26 yards and a fumble. Despite all that, I still put up just under 116 points, only to be passed by my opponent on Hanson's extra point on Detroit's late TD (I was praying they'd go for two at that point, but nope) to lose by .4 or something. 0-2.

Most frustrating fantasy week in a long time.

My 3 teams are all 2-0 and it really hasn't been close. The bubble will burst soon I'm sure.

Is there a worse feeling than putting up 2nd most points in your league and playing the guy who puts up the most?

My lineup was pretty solid today..

Vick
Richardson
Peterson
Megatron
Wallace
DeSean
Pettigrew
Cobb
Packers D

Nothing you can do when your going up against Spiller, Bush, Amendola and Bowe

Need some help deciding what to do in my situation. I'm 2-0.

My team:

QB: Newton, Rivers, Wilson (I start Newton and Rivers, my league has an OP slot)
RB: Peterson, Charles, Sproles, A. Morris
WR: Nicks, Austin, T. Smith, N. Washington
TE: Finley, Keller
D: Bears, Chargers
K: Kaeding

I've been offered Larry Fitzgerald for Jamaal Charles. Supertalented players who never seem to get the ball on their team. Should I take it?

I would do that if Skelton was still starting. Kolb Has to have the worst arm in the league right now and barely looks Fitzgerald's way.

Sproles is a very worthy RB2.

Regardless of today's game I'm heading to a 3 win week (playing in 3 leagues).

Although one of my teams has Hernandez and my backup TE is Fleener on Indy. Who should I pick up? Seem to be some good options out there: Pitta (BAL), Miller (PIT) and Chandler (BUF).

Nope. In one league I'm going to be Top 3 in scoring but 0-2.


In another league this week I played Eli, Rice, Cruz and S.Johnson. He also had Pettigrew and Ridley who put together respectable performances for him. Meanwhile I lost Forte and Hernandez to injury and already have F.Jackson hurt.

My RBs are now Sproles, Tate and Wilson. And Bush and Spiller were drafted so I can't even add Forte and Jackson's backups.

I feel ya. In my most important league both financially and **** talk wise I am 2nd in overall league points and also 0-2.

The guy with the 3rd fewest points is 2-0, he has played the lowest scoring team both weeks. I have this guy this week, I feel like he has voodoo dolls of all the opposing players which is a scary thing with Vick and Peterson on my roster.

I wanna try and take a run at acquiring C.J. Spiller. But I don't know what to give up because his value is a bit of a question market regarding the future of Fred Jackson returning and Spiller having only 2 explosive weeks. Is it worthwhile to acquire him? Do I "sell the farm" or do I give a reasonable package? I am 0-2, in a 8-teamer and my roster looks like:

QB: Matt Stafford
WR: A.J. Green
WR: Mike Wallace
WR: Marques Colston
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Chris Johnson (Unfortunately)
TE: Brandon Pettigrew
Flex: Antonio Brown
Flex: Benjarrvus Green-Ellis
K: Mason Crosby
DEF: GB Packers

Bench:
Philip Rivers
Cedric Benson
Mike Williams(TB)
Justin Blackmon
Titus Young
Donnie Avery
Martellus Bennett

The other guys RB's include: Ryan Mathews, Steven Jackson, Michael Turner, Peyton Hillis and, of course, C.J. Spiller.

It is worth noting before the season started I offered a Titus Young for C.J. Spiller trade that was rejected. If only......

Fitz is horrible so far this season and Stevie seems to drop quite a few ...

For how horrible Fitz is, he still has 5 passing TDs. Stevie has scored in both games and is the only Buffalo WR to have back to back 1000 yard years in franchise history. Stevie has 19 tds in 34 games the past 3 seasons (2010-2012), a better TD ratio then Dez Bryant (.559 vs .517 in Stevies favor) Bryant also has never gotten 1000 yards in a year, Stevie has the past 2 years. And for Santonio Holmes, Holmes has only gotten 1000 yards once and never scored more then 8 TDs in a single year.

So long story short, Stevie Johnson is a much better WR then Dez Bryant and Santonio Holmes. Advocating for trading Stevie Johnson for scraps is wrong advice.

So this is my team:

QB: Ryan, Smith
RB: Bradshaw, Turner, Green-ellis, jacquizz rodgers, Iseah Pead
WR: Fitzgerald, White, D.Thomas, Torrey Smith, Kendall Wright
TE: Pettigrew, Fleener
Kicker: Tucker
Defense: San Fran and Jets

Im planning on dropping pead for andre brown. I might be trading Fitzgerald for Chris Johnson so i was just wondering what some of you guys think about that. Should i do it or not?

My benched players did pretty well too, however some of my players stepped up so I won easily with 125 points. Some questionable starts, like Moore over Nicks, etc.

Assuming it's Greg then it's team 2 by a good margin.

I can't say I blame them.

It would really bother me if I were in your league. I'm guessing you're receiving Jennings and McCoy. It's a really bad trade by the other guy. Like really bad. I'm pretty sure there is a thread titled "bad trading thread." This one belongs in it.

My league had a trade of Peyton Manning, Scott Chandler, and Jonathan Dwyer, for Drew Brees and Vernon Davis.

That's even worse I think.

2 questions.

1. I have #1 waiver claim in a league (and am the only 0-2 team despite being top 5 in scoring) Should I claim Donnie Avery or Brandon Gibson and drop Ronnie Hillman? Or should I just continue to stash Hillman on the end of my bench given my WR depth is A.Johnson, Lloyd, A.Brown, Blackmon and Jeffery?

2. I'm in a 16 team basically only TD only league (only get yardage pts for 100+) should I pickup Amendola or Avery? And would you drop Fred Davis, Shane Vereen or Issac Redman for one of them, if at all?

Here is my team in this league for reference(save K/DST):
Romo
Rice
Murray
Green
Harvin
Meachem
BN: Ponder, Davis, Redman, Vereen.

So do people think Turner is pretty much done? He's 30 years old now and is getting nowhere on pretty much all of his runs and provides absolutely nothing in the receiving game (he never does though). He'll still be pretty effective in goalline situations, but Atlanta is one of the best passing teams in the league now.

I'm not as quick to give up on Fitzgerald, but can someone watching the Cardinals games tell me what's going on? Is it all the QBs fault, or is Fitz just not getting open?
