Agree with the above. No point in keeping 2 DEF in a shallow league. You can always find good matchups. Drop NYG Def for sure.

Okay that makes sense. I submitted a Waiver Request to drop Ravens DEF for Percy Harvin (going against ARI)

that way I shouldn't be completely devoid of points in my W/R.

Wise move, although I had a thought but then realized you were 2-2

what I was going to say was that if you were 1-3 at the moment then a smart play would be to wait until saturday to make the move because there was a lot of talent of the WW from what I saw and if you waited until then to drop the ravens then their status wouldn't clear until Wednesday which by then the waiver priority order would reset. so if you happened to lose this week you would be at 1-4 with the very real possibility of being in last place (assuming no 0-4 teams played each other this week) and you could pick up the Ravens again...that would be really mischievous and awesome of you to do if it worked out that way. Little things like that, that sometimes make or break someones team. but you're 2-2 so that can't happen go ahead and fire away at harvin

Benson would be a safe drop since Willis McGahee is available. In fact I'd cut both D's one for Willis and the other for a matchup D. Why is starting RB available in FA? WTH?

I'd rather have Decker myself.

Whew! Your league is far to complicated for my simple brain to comprehend. =P. You've gotten lots of good advice on who to drop so I won't go there. Instead, let me suggest that you pick up Jordy Nelson. Only one week so far where he has not produced in double digits and the hotter the Packer offense gets as the season progresses, the more touches he will receive. I hope I was not imagining seeing him on you list of available players.
