QB's: (start 1)
McNair vsCLE or Testaverde @MIA
(is McNair gonna play? and will he do well if he does start?)
RB's: (start 2)
M.Faulk @TB, E.George vsCLE, LaMont Jordan @MIA,
James Allen vsIND, and F.Tayor BYE
(obviously I start M.Faulk, but who should be my #2 RB? Normally I start George, but he's hurt. I'd Start F.Tayor instead...BYE week! ...so I droped T.Candiate and added James Allen this week because he's playing a questionable D and he's a starter. Is Jordan gonna get carries this week...should I start him instead or Allen?)
WR's (start 2)
D.Mason vsCLE, C.Chambers vsNYJ, J.Morton @NE, Q.Ismail @HOU
(if McNair is hurting...how well is Mason gonna do? Will Ismail have a huge game against HOU? J.Morton will have a tough time with NE. Will Chambers finally produce this week?)
ALSO...now that you've seen my line-up... elvaluate this TRADE for me...
J.Feidler and L.Smith
V.Testaverde and F.Taylor
normally I would say NO right away...but Tesaverde hasn't looked great and I really need another RB for this week!
Interesting trade proposal, Fiedler and Smith will definitely give you some relief for a few weeks, but when DeShaun Foster comes back, it will be RBBC for a few games. Then Foster is supposed to take over the starting role. Of course, that's all speculation. Taylor is hot right now and not injured, so you should probably keep him and ride him for all he's worth.
Eddie George has a weird injury that could be nothing, or could affect him for the rest of the year. I'd counteroffer with George in place of Taylor and then pick up Mack for insurance. Since Taylor's bye is this week, you don't have to worry about his spot for the rest of the season. If he gets injured, you'll have an instant replacement if you pick up Mack now.
If you do the trade, you could then dump Allen and try to trade Jordan to whomever owns Martin; or you could just dump Jordan altogether and pick up a sleeper WR.
I'd play Chambers and Ismail for WRs this week.
