I feel your pain... I have been in a league with the same buddies for 15 years, and despite having the 3rd most points scored in the league, I will be 0-4.

Sometimes you just get unlucky. I think, for the most part, your roster is pretty good. One suggestion I would make is to trade away Rivers and one of your WRs for an upgrade at QB... I would look to trade Jennings. Another would be to deal a little WR depth for some RB depth as I have concerns beyond your top 2 guys.

Better luck the rest of the way for you.

Thanks. Ive tried trading my WR depth for some help at the RB position. Who should I target? What WRs should I pair together to get a decent RB, yet still keep my WRs solid? What about the Qb? If I were to package jennings and rivers, who could I get? Rodgers? Brady? Brees?

Thanks!

Tough to know who to package and for what, without knowing league rosters, etc., but Jennings and Rivers for one of the big boy QB is a good place to start. Shoot off a few trade requests and get the ball rolling.

Good luck. ;-D

I think part of your problem is just bad luck. Your starters look pretty good. I think Rivers makes you a little weak at QB, but otherwise your starting team looks solid.

I would not be in too big a hurry to trade anybody on your team away, I like it the way it is.

My advise would be to work the waiver wire for the depth you need and stand pat with the starting lineup you have. That team should be good enough to put together some wins and get you back in the hunt.

The only change I would make to your starting lineup is to put Colston in for the injured Jennings and find a bye week replacement for Hanson this week, but you probably already did that (I hope).

Guys I would look at dropping first are Hillis and Williams.
QB: R Griffin III, A Luck
RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green
WR: V Cruz, M Austin, P Garcon, S Moss, B Hartline
TE: J Witten
K: Matt Bryant
D: ATL.
