1- I'm fine with you dropping Hightower for a TE this week if you don't have one (plenty of running back depth)

2a- you don't need to handcuff in an 8 team league imo... and technically speaking Bush isnt the handcuff to MJD, Deji Kareem is. In either case of you owning DMC or wanting to pick up Kareem I wouldn't bother handcuffing in an 8 team league, they'll be on the waiver wire if one of your studs gets injured...and if not there should be plenty of quality options on your roster to fill that spot/ quality picks on the waiver wire. In short- don't handcuff in an 8 team league (unless you drafted for like 24+ rounds, then its ok)
2b- Why the hell do you have two kickers? this shouldn't happen in a 16 team league, god-forbid an 8 team league...I would absolutely drop Matt Bryant immediately for the best RB/WR available on the wire. No idea what the FA market looks like for an 8 team league but if someone like Daniel Thomas or Nate Washington is available you pick them up immediately.

3a- Pitt not so good anymore, lots of injuries and their offense can't stay on the field long enough for their D to catch their breath. Furthermore, as I have already indicated, 8 team league...I would stream Defenses for the rest of the season.
3b- to answer your question- Yes, pick the TEN defense, dunno who else is available but they should be very solid this week

To summarize my statements: 8 team league= 1 kicker (actually this goes for all leagues), and unless you have a very clear cut #1 or #2 D, I would stream everyweek

Note: didn't intend for that to sound so critical, meant to be more light-heated criticism

Amazing! Thanks for the feedback and insight. I don't take it harsh at all. It's my first year of playing fantasy football and this is the type of feedback that helps me understand the proper way to play. I'll be dropping PITS for TEN and streaming for remainder of the season, based on match ups. Same goes with Kicker situation. I won't handcuff as your right, those guys would be on the wire regardless.

Any additional thoughts on moves I should look to make with this team via trades? Or stay as is...

P.s. neither Daniel Thomas or Nate Washington are available on the WW (although I am thinking of offering in a trade my D.Moore for N.Washington)

NP :)

team looks fine, but looking at it again Witten is on a BYE this week, so drop Bryant for for a TE, Gresham should be available in your league and would be a solid pickup to play for 1 week.

your team looks ok, not too sure what you could get trade value wise...I think it would be a good bet to sit tight for a while and hope CJ improves and you could shop around a few of your RB's for a top wideout. but can't really give too much advice outside of that. Your team is very balanced as far as WR and RB goes
