Just traded CJ Spiller straight up for Matthew Stafford (the guy proposed the trade before the game today). He had 4 QBs and 2 RBs (for whatever reason) so he really needed a RB, but I still bet this gets vetoed (my only two trades so far have been vetoed). If the trade goes through, I'm trading Andy Dalton for a RB/WR, or else picking up the best RB/WR on waivers. I'm loaded already at RB and CJ Spiller was my 4th/5th best option at that position (Arian Foster, Doug Martin, Trent Richardson, Michael Turner) so losing Spiller really doesn't hurt at all.

Having Eli Manning or Matthew Stafford to choose from every week would be a big luxury.

And no touchdowns. Just sick of the no touchdowns.

Was just offered McFadden for Calvin Johnson.

My other RBs: TB Martin IND Brown PIT Dwyer

My other WRs: CIN Green OAK Moore JAX Shorts STL Amendola

Thoughts? Realize McFaddens having a slow year of sorts too but I think I'd be okay at WR still especially w Amendola coming back and it would definitely help my RB situation if Dwyer gets the boot once Mendenhall comes back

Thank you Brady, McFadden and Miles Austin! I get a 5 point bonus in my main league for 100 yard rushing/receiving and 300 passing. I just need 5 points from Vernon Davis to win the high for the week, $20.

If McFadden didn't have the game he did I would have gave up on him. I invested the 1st overall pick on McFadden in a 14 team keeper over Forte, Jones-Drew, Peterson, Lynch and Richardson.... I'm hoping he has an insane final 5 reg season games for me.

Don't do it.Davis>Celek by a large margin.Amendola is still out for few more games.Ryan is better then Cam, but S.Smith & DeSean>>Reggie.

I think Newton will rebound and I suggest to not do that trade.

Essentially its Davis > Celek and Newton < Ryan. So it comes down to Amendola + Reggie Bush vs Smith and Jackson. Amendola is back after this weeks bye and put up some good numbers before being hurt, and Bush has put up some good numbers also. Smith has yet to get a touch-down this year and Jackson has one, and only one 100 yard game.

Honestly, I've been hoping for Newton to rebound for a while now and it obviously hasn't happened. With both him and Smith on my team, when one does bad, they both do and that really hurts my team. I think I'm leaning towards making this deal, just to get rid of the head-aches.

The guys I'm getting have amassed 30+ more points than the ones I'm trading away, and thats with Amendola missing a few weeks.

ALEX SMITH just beat me in 2 leagues.

I was up 17 and 21 respectively and he got 27 and 24. In the latter I had Andre Roberts who got me 0(TD only).

Phew, squeaked by with an extremely lackluster performance by my team (all my best players were on bye though) for my 6th straight win. Martin got me about 40% of my points, and him and Austin together got over half of my points.

Only real issue with my team right now is my #2 receiver (Fitzgerald). Might have to start Austin over him. I'm also going to try to get Crabtree back, who I dropped this week.

Even though your WR situation is really ugly, I think you have to take that value, and then try to flip either Newton or RG3 for some receiver help. RG3 is one of the most coveted players there is. Why is he offering that?

I have no idea.

Will have to see if he actually meant that as a straight up offer or whats going to happen.

Hard to say, Newton is having a bad year and RG3 is currently better IMO but your WR corp is weak to say the least. Keep Dez, Newton can bounce back.

Would've won my matchup if I played Witten over Gates .

So should I go with Gates or Witten ? Witten plays the falcons, Gates is playing the chiefs..
Also Desean Jackson at Saints or Moore at Eagles . ?

I got Stafford for Spiller, so I'm dropping Dalton for a RB on the waiver wire. Really hoping my waiver claim on Dwyer goes through. Do people think he's a good bet to keep putting up numbers even if Mendenhall comes back?

Also wondering if I should immediately start Stafford over Eli Manning. Stafford is at Jacksonville and Eli is vs. the Steelers. Definitely leaning towards yes.

And Gostkowski is on bye so I have to pick up a kicker (can't remember the last time I protected a kicker on a bye week, but Gostkowski is money). Graham looks like the best bet with his team and his match-up, but I already have Foster and Daniels so I think that would be too risky. Would Walsh at Seattle be a good pick-up? The Seahwaks could stall the Vikings offense a bit, but he's got a big leg, so I could be seeing something from 50+ yards.

Titus young vs Jacksonville or steve smith vs Washington or CJ Spiller vs Houston or Dwyer vs Giants or Murray (if healthy) vs Atlanta

I need to choose two. One flex and one rb.

I just picked Stafford up on waivers. I'm also hoping Dwyer continues putting up numbers. At this point i can't see them starting anyone over him. He has the most yards after contact save CJ Spiller.
