Tough week for me, 1-2 (bad decision last week cost me a 2-1 record) playing #1 team in the league (3-0). Yahoo standard league with yardage bonuses at 100, 150 for rushing/receiving, and 200, 250, and 300 for passing. Definite starters listed, anything else is up for debate.
QB: ?? RB: Gore RB: Bradshaw WR: B. Marshall WR: ??? Flex RB/WR: ??? TE: Tony Gonzalez K: Crosby DEF/ST: Saints
Available: QB: Schaub, Ryan RB: AP(Bye), Forte, R. Brown WR: Megatron, Driver, Clayton TE: None (dropped M Lewis to pick up Roethlisberger ahead of the game) DEF: Miami
Thinking I shouldn't bench Megatron, but he has been so dissapointing, and Driver has been doing well and plays Detroit, Clayton is playing Seattle and could put up some points. Leaning towards Brown over Forte, Brown rushing against NE looks good and Monday night to boot. Forte worries me against the Giants. QB side has me thinking Schaub is getting hit alot and has been up and down, Ryan may be more likely to be decent without a huge upside, but less chance of a downside.
I'm needing help with RB this week, but also thinking about the future. In a league with a max moves of 15, would you drop Leon Washington for Kuhn as another speculation move? I'm torn. Help me lean one way or the other.

Mike Wallace Santonio Holmes - I don't mind sitting on him now for value later Louis Murphy Braylon Edwards Brandon Lloyd Roy Williams
How should I rank these WR's so that I get the best available off the wire? Who is the #1 WR for Jets when Edwards and Holmes are both playing?
prowlah: Very surprising to me that all of these guys are just sitting on the waiver in your league. I would rank them like this: Wallace, Murphy, Holmes, Lloyd, Edwards, Williams. To answer your other question, I think Holmes is the number one guy when he comes back, but be aware that it may take a few weeks for him and Sanchez to get in sync.

MY TEAM: QB Micheal Vick WR Miles Austin WR Anquan Boldin RB Maurice Jones-Drew RB DeAngelo Williams TE Vernon Davis W/R/T Joseph Addai BENCH: BN Steve Smith(car) BN Lance Moore BN Ricky Williams BN Jeremy Maclin BN Ben Roethlisberger BN Mike Tolbert BN Laurence Maroney K Nate Kaeding DEF NE
Which Defense this week?? Seattle @ st. Louis Atlanta vs SF New York vs Chi cago Tennessee vs Denver Indianapolis @ jags St. Louis vs Seattle Houston @ Oakland
I offered the Turner owner, my MDJ/steve smith(car) for Micheal turner/Fitz, and he countered with Micheal Turner/Dallas clark For my vernon davis/MDJ, should i do this deal? i'd be getting micheal turner and dallas clark.
if i do that trade, I think i should get snelling as a handcuff, I've already talked to the snelling owner, and said he'd trade snelling for luarency maroney, should i do this?, even though i play this owner and he'd be forced to start portis in his flex this week, and maroney is projected to score 2 more points than portis this week.
would you trade maclin/boldin for andre johnson??
maclin scored 20 points last week, and boldin scored 37, i think i can make this happen, but is it a good idea? I also have micheal vick, and maybe can do this trade for desean jackson, would that be a better trade for me then the injured andre johnson?
JoshKnows: I like the first two trades. I've already mentioned that I don't like MJD for reasons beyond his control, and Dallas Clark is a slight upgrade over Vernon Davis. I don't see Laurence Maroney having much value, but Snelling is a must have if you trade for Turner.
The last trade, however, does not look as good. Maclin and Vick clearly have a strong connection right now, and I expect it to stay that way. Boldin is looking more and more comfortable each week in Baltimore, and has an outside shot at finishing in the top 10 this year. The idea of trading two guys who I think will finish in the top 20 for one receiver makes me nervous, even if it is a talent like Johnson or Jackson.
Like the first two trades, but I would pass on number 3
thanks alot, i think your right about that 3rd trade, plus talks of andre johnson beinging out this week with a high ankle spain.
how bout the defenses, which one do you like out of the one's above?
how bout Addai/Maclin for say ronnie brown or Matt forte or beanie wells or darren mcfadden...i'd like to start a rb in my flex over a wr, and if i kept both maclin and addai, i'd probable have to start maclin most weeks....would any of those 4 guys be a better option than addai?
JoshKnows: Of all the defenses you listed, I think Atlanta will probably have the best day. As much as I hate to admit it, the 49ers are a mess on offense right now, and a trip in to the Georgia Dome can't help. As for that trade, if you can get McFadden, I would go ahead and swing that deal. Run DMC looks like a completely different guy this year, and is showing why the Raiders used the number 4 pick on him three years ago. (Ironic: The one time the Raiders didn't take the guy with the fastest forty time, they picked Darren McFadden over... Chris Johnson. Whoops)
And for your other question about Lance Moore, the only guy in your lineup right now that I would bench for him is Addai. I think the Colts will blow them out, and when the Colts get up big, they usually pull Addai.
I would go with BJGE. While everyone knows all about the Patriots fearsome passing game, what a lot of people don't realize is that the Pats were seventh in rushing yards last season. BJGE should get the bulk of the carries with Fred Taylor out, and he should have some success against a pretty mediocre Dolphins defense.

Cutler, Favre A. Foster, Addai, Brandon Jackson, K. Moreno Andre Johnson, Gaffney, L. Moore, Naanee, Welker, Santonio holmes jermicheal finley jeff reed seahawks D
Harry: I'd pick up Sanchez. Favre has looked out of sync so far, and quite frankly, if you can't light up the Lions, who are you going to light up? Having Cutler means you can keep Sanchez on your bench and plug him in only when he has a nice matchup. Sanchez has looked better each week, and could end up having a nice year.
Since I'm not sure what Steve Smith you meant, I'll go ahead and tell you how I feel about both of you of them.
CAR: Not a fan this week or any other until I see more out of Jimmy Clausen. Clausen somehow managed to play worse than Matt Moore against the Bengals. Now the Bengals D is pretty solid, and Clausen almost certainly will have better days. But I'd be very cautious in playing Steve Smith until Clausen shows improvement.
NYG: Steve Smith of the Giants is my sleeper pick of the week. I expect him to go off on Chicago, and I believe he will have double digit catches and a score against the Bears. If you want to see why, please go read my blog, where I go into more detail about that match-up.
I rank them like this:
1) Smith (NYG) vs.CHI (Again, please go check out my blog for details) 2) Welker- vs.MIA (Welker loves to stick it to the team that let him walk away in free agency) 3) Clayton vs.SEA (Leon Washington's two kick return tds bailed out a god awful pass D last week) 4) Smith (CAR) vs.NO (New Orleans blitz happy offense against Clausen? No thanks.)
