I never liked McNair & never will,not from a FF perspective,just don't like him.Couch has re-emerged as the starter which will benefit Johnson.Ahman will hopefully be back,drop Mealey & grab Davenport for insurance.Dillon is always a shakey start 'cause he plays for the Bungles.Use McNair & Dillon as trade bait.Also look at the FA WR market,there's sure to be a gem there.

I agree with guttpuppy, you need to upgrade at QB. Maybe get another decent running back to go with green cause you cant trust dillon each and every game. He is too inconsistent, I should know I have him on my team.

I like the deal just cause you'd get Bledsoe.He's goin' off this year & will continue to do so.However,with this trade you'd be losing a starting RB in Dillon,and Green will possibly fight injury all year.This could hurt you at RB.The trade gets a ;-D but only if you add RB depth to replace Dillon.Although Hearst isn't a bad back-up.

I would not trade a number 1 back like dillon and not get one in return, the upgrade to bledsoe sounds nice, but its not worth it without getting a rb. You may drop your backup kicker and try and find a wr off of waivers to help out your depth there. Other than that dont trade without getting a back in return.

I agree with JAY, Bledsoe's numbers won't differ that much from Couch's, but you would be out a #1 back. Stick with Dillon, he has played for the Bengals his whole career and as bad as they are he has put up good numbers, there is no reason to think that his numbers should be any different this year.

Hey, beerman! Sorry. It looks to me like your team is relatively solid and you've just had a case of bad luck through week 3. Maybe you can use an upgrade at QB but it doesn't look like you'll be getting it without giving up a little too much. If you really want to make a move, try to give up a WR and a lesser RB for a QB.
I know it's tough but, it looks like you just need a little patience. 0-3 is tough but not impossible to overcome. I don't know why people don't like McNair. He finished as the 8th ranked QB in my league last year. 3,300 yards passing and 21 TD's not to mention over 400 yards rushing and 5 more TD's are nothing to turn up your nose at. Sure he's no, Garcia or Warner but, this year, neither is Garcia or Warner. As for Dillon, they say the same thing every year yet, every year he put up about 1,300-1,500 total yards and he wass in the endzone 10 times last year.
Do something a little different from the fantasy football norm. Have patience!!

OK let's see here Dillon has just over 60yds. per game with no scores,add in a couple receptions.He's tied with Vick for rushing yds.,behind F.Taylor who had a bye week & Ahman Green who sat a game due to injury.Bledsoe leads the league in passing yds. & has 6TDs 2picks.Yeah Dillon will get a couple good games here & there.But Bledsoe will produce all year.So you could sit & wait for Dillon to have "his game"or you could be playing Bledsoe each week knowing at least he will "doing something".It's that simple,just do the math.
