Nobody is running away with it, just get back to .500 and you'll be in contention for a playoff spot.

Thanks goes out to Norv Turner. Jackie Battle has been beasting this year so as soon as I start him, all of the carries go to Ryan Matthews...awesome

It was awesome for me yesterday, all of my remaining players and opponents remaining players in both leagues were in the Saints-Chargers game. Had Brees and Gates vs. Rivers in one league, Rivers vs. Pierre Thomas in the other. Everything worked out exactly as I had hoped, Rivers does good but Brees does better.

You need a good starting RB pretty bad. Brees for Rivers + Mendenhall?

Not to get in the way of your dealings, and I'm sure Illini knows this anyways, but that's an awful deal for Brees

Yeah, everything is awful to you, making your team better and winning championships is what matters to me, not being a talking head. His team has no shot with his running backs and Rivers + Mendenhall is a fine starting point, obviously I need feed back from him.

Right, everything is awful to me

His RBs may not be the greatest, but giving up Brees for a minor upgrade over Battle while and a huge downgrade in Rivers ain't worth it.

In what world is Mendenhall only a minor upgrade over Battle? Mendenhall is a lead back on a team with little depth and a touchdown machine. Battle is....Battle.

Matthews has the job back. He just put up like 22 points.

Even if he's a huge upgrade, it's still a huge downgrade for Rivers.

I say it's just minor because of how injury prone Mendenhall is. I just wouldn't be in a rush to trade a top 5 QB for an RB who's played 1 game, especially given how it's a quarterbacks game now.

I think the difference between Brees and Rivers is the same as Mendenhall and Battle or whatever other scrubs are on the waiver wire. So it comes down to working out the details, obviously Brees is a top QB and I'm willing to work with him to figure out the rest. We'll see what happens, I PMed him.

No, it's not at all. Brees is a dependable QB. He'll give you high point totals every week. Mendenhall is anything but that. He's a workhorse RB coming off an ACL injury. You can't depend on him to get double digits every week

Reports have been excellent on him the whole way through and then he played the Eagles D and put up numbers. You can look at the ACL as a negative but it doesn't seem to matter for him, nor Charles, nor A.P. I view all three of these guys as good as they ever were. Mendenhall averaged about 12 points per game last year, 14 points per game the year before. He played all 16 games in 2010 and 15 games last year. So he is a 13 PPG game back.

If you think it's only one game and he will not be this good every game (or better), let's see what he does next week against the Titans D and revisit it.

I am up six points on my opponent going into tonight and he has his kicker going (Houston's kicker, can't remember his name off the top of my head). I need this win in the worst as I'm 0-4 right now. Have had three close losses and one blowout. Crap ass luck. If I lose this my season's pretty much shot. It's damn near shot at 1-4, as is. Nothing worse than your fantasy buy-in turning into a donation as of Week 5.

AP is a physical freak and Charles is a low volume back. Mendenhall is a high volume, power back. Totally different situations.

Also, the Titans D? That's one of the easier matchups he'll see.

I'm gonna be in a lot of trouble if RGIII is out a while.

I don't think he'll be out a while, but I'd be shocked if he suited up next week. Next two weeks he'd be in trouble anyway, with two hard hitting defenses on the schedule.

I'm so pissed. I didn't realize the Rams played on Thurs and Amendola started even though I planning to go with Colston and then Amendola get injured in the 1st half. Then of course Colston gets 30 points and would've won me my matchup. Now I am up by like 9.5 or something and he has the kicker from either Texans or Jets. I really hope this doesn't bite me in the arse.

Sounds like you need to get in the habit of checking on Thursdays.

Team Torment has the best team and it's not even close, imo.
