With your roster I don't see how you'd ever use Fitzpatrick unless the other two are hurt. Drop him.

I disagree. In a 2 QB league, they are much more valuable. Even bench QBs. You don't know what you'll get with Wilson, the rookie. Until the entire BUF offense got hurt, Fitzpatrick was doing really well. If he can get back on that level of performance, he could be worth a starting spot for your team. Or at the very least, you can trade him to a team who is QB needy, since everybody needs at least 3 solid guys. I'd much rather be trading QBs than dropping them in this format. You can get better pieces for your roster. Package him and someone else for an upgrade, and then use the free roster spot to gab the K.

Or, until you are able to do that, I would drop Holmes. His offense is absolutely terrible, he isn't happy there in the least bit. Either his QB will be a guy where their relationship is fragile, or Tebow...yikes.

I missed the 2 QB part. Bad advice from me... Drop Holmes

I would drop Holmes as well, if trading is not an option.

I agree with the majority here. Fitzpatrick is much more important in a 2 QB league. Holmes is not a no-brainer over Wright, but at that point you are looking for upside so Wright is probably the guy to keep.

Help with mine?

I'm pretty high on Wright. I agree the Jets have looked horrible but isn't Holmes the only playmaker on the team? If he's not gonna score who will? Fitzpatrick has looked just as bad, and I'm seeing all this stuff about how teams have figure out Buffalos scheme etc... I'm still undecided on this....Please help.

I think a trade would be difficult to pull off.

I was offered David Akers (Kicker) for my Holmes. Do I take this?
