i would try D.Moore instead of H.Ward
OAK speak very highly of him and should be one of the main offense focus with DMC

but he is a rookie, and rookie always come with risk, however, replace Ward shouldn't that big of a deal

Thanks for the replies!

Eric - Hendo is not available but the guy that has him just lost Charles so I should be able to trade Thomas Jones to him for Henderson. I just dont know if that is a good trade for me. Thoughts?

Chaoyi- I would like to start D. Moore but they are playing the Jets on sunday and I'm nervous about that.

Should I try to get rid of one of my big backs for a receiver?

get Henderson for Jones would be nice, if he accept it, but probably too late for week3 lineup.
Henderson is perfect for you and you can switch to Colston when he recovered
I like Ward as a team player, but he only catch ball at crucial moment, which is great for Steeler, but not so much for fantasy football. i prefer either D.Nelson or D.Moore, but they are both gamble, but Ward you know you'll have some points at least.
gamble or not is up to you.

not so sure if you'll need Redman, Mendenhall is one of the healthiest RB in the league and it's very unlikely you'll ever start Redman before Mendenhall. drop Redman for potential WR from WW is good move

Thanks for the help. I decided to start Moore and he actually gave me 16 points. The second highest on my team!:( Week 3 was rough for me. I got a whopping 16 or 17 points from Rivers, Mendenhall, Turner, and Green-Ellis combined! Just when I thought things couldnt have gotten any worse lol. Im not even sure who to trade or go after right now. I will have to sell extremely low for those guys and I'm not really willing to do that. If you guys have any advice please let me know. Thanks again.

sell your stud at reasonable price
for example, since you are selling low, Mendenhall or Turner for F.Jax is acceptable, but don't take Sprole, or Starks (he did suck on week3 anyway)
make sure you get those new rising star RB/WR, don't just sell your stud too low.

however, i will hold on to them and hope they back to their normal, the only stud player i feel like to trade low is Gore, good thing you don't have him

Thnaks. So I took your advice and Traded:

Michael Turner
David Nelson

for

Danial Thomas
Anquan Boldin
Lance Moore

I hope this turns out to be a good trade for me. As of right now, Im not sure.

Thoughts? Again, This is a PPR league.

i think your team improved from the trade
Turner is safer player and you can expect him to give you acceptable produciton, but he has reached his ceiling.
D.Thomas is nowhere close to Turner, at least not yet, but could be RB3 if needed

your WR improved for sure, with Boldin and S.Johnson and D.Moore or L.Moore for 2WR/Flex, not the strongest in your league but give you more chances in winning the match than your previous team roster.

try trade for some selling low player like Gore, CJ2K, Vick, Foster, DJax, William TB, and hope they bounce back.
