  1. I am in a 12-team PPR league where we start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 Flex, 1 DST. My roster is currently as follows: QB - Cousins, Jameis RB - Miller (5th-round keeper), Gordon, Jennings, Crowell, Blount, Kelley WR - Beckham (14-round keeper), Jeffery, Evans, Decker, Marvin Jones TE - Marty B, Dwayne Allen DST - Texans My "burner"/"flyer" roster spot is currently occupied by Rob Kelley. Because of the way this league is set, where you can conceivably start as many as 5 receivers, it is uncommon to carry more RB than WR. However, I feel like my 5 starting receivers are quite strong, and there is some uncertainty surrounding my non-Lamar Miller RB. Because of that,and because I don't think Matt Jones is particularly good, I am currently stashing Kelley. I am, however, considering swapping him out for Jamison Crowder or Eli Rogers for additional WR depth. ShauN Draughn is also available, but I don't really want any part of that 49ers offense. What do you guys think? Continue to stash Rob Kelley and see how it plays out for at least a couple of weeks? Or go ahead and grab Rogers or Crowder?
  2. Need to flex two of these in a PPR league: Vereen Dion Lewis Cole Beasley Vereen seems to have a great matchup, given how Philly RBs (especially Sproles) abused ATL LBs in the pass game. Even with Blount back, NE may need to attack BUF with intermediate passing, which would bode well for Lewis. Beasley could be in line for a lot of targets in DAL's reconfigured passing attack, but it may be wise to approach with some trepidation until we see how it shakes out.
  3. Christine Michael to Dallas. Looks like I'm staying put!
  4. Yeah, I think the value of being the WR3 in Green Bay may be a little overblown (other than that random year where James Jones had 14 TDs, has there been that much there?), but they do seem to like him, and who knows if Cobb's shoulder lingers/resurfaces? I originally drafted David Cobb, but I'm just not seeing much upside to that Tennessee running game.
  5. Our league is a 12-team, 16-player per roster. PPR scoring. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 Flex, 1 DST (no kickers), so there's the possibility to start as many as 4 RB or 5 WR in any one given week. We had our draft last week (Aug. 28th), so obviously some stuff has happened since, and I've made some moves in response. Currently, my roster stands as follows: QB - Eli Manning (had hoped to pair him with Bradford, but he went right before I could take him, so I'd rather rely on the waiver wire if I need a Carson Palmer-type) RB - Marshawn, Lamar Miller, Ellington, Vereen, Dion Lewis, Christine Michael WR - Odell Beckham, TY Hilton, Mike Wallace, John Brown, Amendola, DGB, Tyler Lockett TE - Kelce DST - Dolphine I picked up Michael yesterday after the news that he could be traded, just to see if he'd end up in a desirable location. If Michael doesn't get moved (or does, but not to a good spot), I'd rather use that roster spot in a different manner. Possibilities are as follows: RB - David Cobb, Antonio Andrews, Karlos Williams, Roy Helu, Damien Williams (to handcuff Miller) WR - Ty Montgomery, Josh Huff I like Montgomery, but wonder whether rostering 8 receivers to 5 running backs is a bit much (even though, again, it is PPR and we can start as many as 5 receivers). Should I go for a more balanced approach? And if so, which player from the above list (or someone else I may be overlooking would you recommend. Happy to answer your question in return.
  6. Roll the dice with a potentially gimpy, Keenum-fed Hopkins over Stills and/or Landry in PPR?
  7. With the news that Lamar Miller will be limited today, should I flex Torrey Smith or Andre Holmes over him, or ride with Lamar? PPR.
  8. Andre Williams out there on WW in my keeper league. Pick him up? If so, drop Donald Brown or Steven Jackson for him?
  9. In a vacuum, yes, still 9 weeks left before the playoffs. I just look at the roster and I'm not sure where the turnaround in points is going to come from. It'd be a different matter if I was 1-3 but had been running into juggernauts week after week. In this instance, the points just aren't there.
  10. I'm in a 12-team PPR keeper league. You are required to keep two players from year to year. Keeping a player costs you the pick two rounds above where you took the guy the prevous year. For example, I picked Gronk in the 3rd, so if I kept him next year, he'd cost me my 1st. I took Gerhart in the 4th (God, kill me), so he'd cost me my 2nd if I kept him. So on, so forth. Anyway, because of the keeper aspect, you are allowed to trade players for picks in the upcomng draft. I have been offered a 3rd rounder for Dez Bryant, who I cannot keep next year anyway since he was picked in the first two rounds. Assume that that is the best offer I am going to get (because it is). If I trade Dez, I am essentially giving up on the season. I am currently 1-3 and have the second-fewest points scored. It has been awful. So the queston becomes . . . should I give up on the season, or do you see a turnaround with this roster: QB - CutlerRB - Martin, Gerhart, S-Jax, Lamar Miller, Donald Brown, Crowell, TaliaferroWR - Dez, Decker, Torrey, Andrew Hawkins, Odell Beckham, Jr., Andre HolmesTE - Gronk As you can tell, I have started stocking up on young guys in the hope of havng some cheap keepers next year. So . . . waive the white flag?
  11. That's the safe approach, I suppose. However, consider the following: 1. Until waivers lock before their respective game times, Miller and Ridley are FA, so I can grab either guy between today and tomorrow without burning my waiver priority. 2. Does a good game for MJD this week raise his stock at all? Jacksonville's schedule gets BRUTAL going forward. Chances are, his games will look a lot more like Weeks 1-4 than Week 5. Which brings me to the next one: 3. At this point, I don't even have him in my lineup, even with the good matchup. Gordon already played. Charles, Sproles, and Cruz are locks. That only leaves the flex spot open. Jordy Nelson seems like a safer play against a Lions D that may be without Chris Houston, and I could even argue that David Wilson against a bad Philly D offers the same upside as MJD for this week, if not more.
  12. As an MJD owner in 2 leagues, I understand the frustration. Were this PPR, I'd say Woodhead without hesitation, but in this scenario, I would go with MJD as a "last chance" deal. If it doesn't happen for him this week against a Rams D that has been getting carved up against the run, at least you no longer have to wonder if it's going to happen at all.

  13. Facing the same decision in one of my leagues, and going Kerley without hesitation. You can throw on the Falcons, and with Hill and Holmes both banged up, someone has to catch the ball. Washington, on the other hand, is breaking in a new QB (with whom he may not have the same chemistry) against a good defense, with Kenny Britt being potentially available (though that may not matter). Help with mine? http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=693791
  14. Sounds extreme, but in this context, it may make sense. This is a 10-team PPR league with only 3 bench spots, so the waiver wire is pretty well-stocked, and there is a lot of activity. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 DST. I have Jamaal Charles and Darren Sproles locked in as my starting RB, and with Victor Cruz, Josh Gordon, and Jordy Nelson as my WR, I can feel pretty comfortable swinging one to the flex spot every week. My other RB are MJD, David Wilson, and Joique Bell. Because of our short benches, Lamar Miller and Stevan Ridley are currently on the wire. If I needed a starting RB, I may not bother, but with Charles and Sproles locked in, I feel like I can swing for the fences at RB. Unfortunately, I am getting the feeling we have seen close to the best-case scenario for MJD this year - a lot of high-volume, low-productivity games, with maybe a couple of 100-yard games in there (but good luck predicting when). I suppose I could drop Bell if I wanted to add Ridley or Miller, but isn't Bell's potential upside a lot higher than MJD's this year (i.e., if Bush gets hurt, he's a top 15-20 RB the rest of the way)? I'm leaning towards dropping MJD for Miller, as he seems to be distancing himself from Daniel Thomas a little more every week (whereas Ridley seems destined to be mired in some form of committee for the rest of the season), but welcome any thoughts. Goes without saying that I'll help you with yours in return.
  15. It's not a bad trade, per se, but I don't think it accomplishes what you want to do (make a playoff push). Since you only start 2RB and no flex, Johnson/Ringer would just sit on your bench unless or until something happened to Rice or DMC. Unless you believe/fear DMC's injury is long-term, there's no great benefit to the move. For this week, Tolbert is a fine fill-in for DMC.
