Trini, the "points projection" lists are merely a GUIDE, my friend, I never put stock into such predictions, only the ORDER, and then that is still just a guide too. All I am saying is just get into a habit of starting your studs, regardless of what any list or projection might suggest.
As for a possible D to pick up of the ww, my first choice would have to be San Diego bc they play at home and bc AZ's offense is nothing special. My 2nd choice would have to be Cinci, as they ALSO face a sub-standard offense in CLE, and the Bengals' fast, opprtunistic D should not only limit Cleveland's scoring, but will provide at least 2-3 turnovers -- perhaps more imo. AND - I would also drop Beanie to do this; either Wells or D.Brown, and should either get picked up b4 you can re-acquire them, BJGE would be an upgrade over either one depending on whom you decide to drop, assuming that Belichick continues to feature him as the only truly healthy NE RB...
I also have a trade idea for you: I would attempt to package Sanchez (a "sell-high" candidate currently if there ever was one) and maybe Fitz (who is now a mere WR2 with any of the QBs in AZ this season) or even SSmith-CAR (same basic situation as Fitz production-wise) to a team that is either lacking a decent QB or who needs help @ WR for either another stud RB or another stud WR. You can always grab Freeman or Hasselbeck etc as your back-up behind Flacco who SHOULD be good from here on out... It's never too early to beef-up your starting line-up, and right now you have an embarrassment of riches at WR, and two of them still hold extremely high "perceived" value... just an idea... GL!
