  1. Who Should I Pick Up?

    Who do you have on your team?? Gore, then Deuce. Depending on who else you have take both.
  2. big WR WDIS

    I like Mike Furrey to have a big game this week.
  3. I am in somewhat of a bind. I had Portis until he was placed on IR. I am looking for a waiver wire pickup and the pickings are slim. I currently have: Westbrook Gore A Thomas - initial pickup for Portis Barlow Corey Dillon was dropped for Betts while I was out of town and Marion Barber and Brandon Jacobs are also available - should I pick any of these guys up? We have set roster spots, have to carry 4 RB etc. Performance scoring + 1 pt / reception. I was leaning toward dropping Barlow in favor of Dillon. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  4. I have been offered the following trade: I give Eli Manning and TO for JP Losman and Chad Johnson I declined and countered with Pennington and B Edwards for McNair and CJ He is in a real need for a QB - Green got hurt and those are his other 2 QB's. I was looking to possibly upgrade at WR. Our rosters have specific slots - 3 QB 4 RB 4 WR 2 TE 2 Kicker 2 Def / ST - please don't reply with any why are you carrying 2 defense posts. I think CJ will come back to have a good year, but don't know if giving him 2 starters for a scrub QB and a slight upgrade at WR is going to help me. ***This is the league commissioner who has placed 1 or 2 every year for the past 10 years in both of our leagues - my point being that I wouldn't necessarily want to help him out. In my opinion I have a good team - see sig - and don't need to make the trade in any form. I was trying to unload my #3 QB for a better WR. Is it worth pursuing more at this point for CJ, or should I just drop it altogether? Thanks.
  5. Bye and injuries WDIS RB2?

    Headaches - when has this happened in KJ's career? Are you speculating that there is more of an injury than has been talked about in Detroit? Anyway - I would never play 2 RB's from the same team with a few exceptions. For a couple of years you could have played Priest and LJ. You might get away with playing LT2 and Turner this week. I really don't like playing the backup to your starter if at all possible. If you are trying to say you don't think KJ will play, then you are stuck unless someone is available on the WW or last minute trades are allowed in your league. Basically you are hoping to get 2 full games production out of 2 players that are splitting time. Best case scenario for you is the Benson plays every 3rd series. Which means he will be "stealing" 1/3 of the RB touches and or TD's available in the game. Just my 2 cents.
  6. WDIS - Turner or Gore?

    I always play a starter over a backup. I have Gore in my second league, but will play Westbrook and Portis. One thing to keep in mind is that Gore is also a major part of the passing game. He may not tear it up on the ground this week, but he could have 8 to 10 catches for decent yardage. I expect combined yardage to again be around 100 or so for Gore, with the possibility of a TD. Just my 2 cents.
  7. Commisioner Advice

    There seems to be a lot of these types of questions every year. In my opinion your role as commissioner is to enforce the rules of the league. Unless there is a rule stating that trades must be equal value for equal value by position, then you can't reject a trade like this. Trades are made to try and better YOUR team. Someone usually gets the better end of a trade. Ask yourself this question - did it improve both teams at 1 of the positions traded? If the answer is no, then you may have to consult others. If the answer is yes, even slightly, then do nothing but approve. If a trade is totally rediculous - ask a couple of other owners in the league for input if you need it. My commissioner asked for my input 2 years ago when it was 1 week before the playoffs and an owner tried to trade Edgerrin James away to his friend for Ron Dayne. Obviously this was collusion and rejected after he consulted with me and 2 other owners. Another consideration is if this is a keeper league. I know friends who will make trades to get rid of players that they can't keep for players that they can keep. I would allow it.
  8. Our rosters are set as follows: 3 QB 4 RB 4 WR 2 TE 2 Kicker 2 Def / ST In order to pick up a WR I have to drop a WR. I have never been in a league where rosters are unlimited by position - it seems to make RB's that much more valuable. I would much rather drop my second kicker or defense, but that is not an option. That was why I asked specifically about dropping Mason. I don't think that Mason is going to be better than a bye week fill in this year, and Edwards is the goto WR in Cleveland. Thanks.
  9. Should I drop Derrick Mason and pick up Braylon Edwards? This is my 2nd league team. WR on team are Chad Johnson Derrick Mason Javon Walker Marques Colston I was pretty high on Mason coming into the year, being reunited with McNair could have been a great thing - and still could. I think that Edwards has big upside, and is getting better each week. Is there any reason I shouldn't make the transaction?
  10. Looks like Westbrook is the man. Thanks.
  11. I am currently starting Palmer, but am considering Eli Manning. I like the fact that Pittsburgh plays the run so well, Palmer should have a good game. Unless it is a time of posession struggle and both teams try to grind it out on the ground. Manning has Seattle and I think he might have a good game. Any thoughts?
  12. WDIS - QB Pennington, Carr, or Smith

    Thanks - that was my thinking also.
  13. Here is another one for my "other" league. I had Green and put him on IR. I started Pennington last week and am pretty happy with his play so far. I am leaning toward Carr. He is playing a pretty poor pass defense in Washington, and should have a good game. I don't like Coles not playing and think that Pennington will is due to have a bad game soon - plus Buffalo looks to have a good pass defense.. Smith is my 3rd QB only because we have to carry 3 - maybe he will light it up. The wild card here is that Grossman is available on the ww - I can't believe I am even thinking about it. Thanks.
  14. what wide receivers should i start need 2

    I would go definitely with Bryant, as far as a second player - I have always liked Andre Johnson. Noe that he has another receiver there he should have some better numbers. I would go with Bryant and Johnson.
  15. In my second league I have abit of a dilemma in that I have 3 good RB's and need to start 2 of them. I will start Gore - so really it is pick 1 of the other 2 - Portis or Weswtbrook. 1 pt / 10 yds rush 1 pt / 10 yds rec 6 pts for rucj / rec TD's 1 pt per rec I am leaning toward starting Portis, because of Westbrook's leg. Westbrook is a great option due to the ppr - he is usually good for 5 rec / 50 yds. Thanks.
