    • BearsFan 4:06 pm on October 31, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Which player(s) do you think i should drop for a defense? Detroit is on their BYE. And should I drop Jason Hanson (Det-K) for another kicker, or do you think i should pick up a replacement. Thanks!

      WR/TE are:

      Brandon Pettigrew, Dallas Clark
      Devin Hester, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Pierre Garcon, Jordy Nelson, A.J. Green, DeSean Jackson, Miles Austin.

      Considering dropping Hester/DHB/Pettigrew.

      Thanks!

        Im on the exact end of that table! I have a 10 point 11.7 point lead thanks to McCoy and my opponent needs 11.8 from Vincent Jackson to get the win! Needless to say, I’m rooting against Vincent Jackson! haha.

      hey guys, I need help picking one flex player for this week as a bye fill in.

      RB- Battle, Moreno, Morris, Carter, Jacobs, Hillis
      WR- Washington, Walter, Jenkins, A.Brown, T.Smith, Demaryuis Thomas

      Normally I would just go with instinct and pick one for a spot fill but wanted to get a consensus pick for this week.

      Thanks πŸ™‚

      • Brandon 3:01 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        You need a running back AND a wide receiver? Or just one from the whole group? At running back it’s close (with Battle), but I’m leaning towards Knowshon Moreno, who should get a lot of carries in that run-first offense. At receiver, I like Antonio Brown against the Patriots less-than-stellar pass defense. Of the whole crew, I guess I pick Moreno, but it’s really close between he, Battle and Brown. Good luck man!

        • Corey 3:06 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          yea, I was going to try and sneak Pierre Thomas in there but he was snagged up earlier. Those were my top 3 choices: Battle, Brown and Moreno but it’s going to be a tad difficult on which one lol. I’m already starting Wallace although Brown a great game vs Ari last week too. And both SD and Det have started to give up more yards on the ground. I guess I’ll just pull a name out of a hat lol πŸ™‚

    • Stephen 5:37 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      The following WRs are available as free agents, and I want to replace Damian Williams with one of them. Which would you choose (not just for the week, but for the remainder of the season):

      David Nelson (BUF)
      Preston Parker (TB)
      Michael Jenkins (MIN)

      My current WRs are: AJ Green, Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin, Greg Little (and D. Williams). Right now, I’m leaning towards Nelson.

      *Not a PPR league

      • Corey 5:52 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Jenkins looks to be Ponders favorite right now so I would pick him up. Nelson has been battling injuries and parker isn’t much of an option either. Grab Jenkins.

      • Brandon 9:26 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Agree with Corey here, go with Jenkins.

    • JStein 7:40 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      2 questions. Really appreciate any advice!

      Do I trade welker for colston and jenkins?

      welker through bye colston and jenkins are not.

      Is stafford -5pts a week vs. tebow a good bet?

      • JStein 7:44 pm on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        should have added that its a ppr league.

      • Brandon 9:28 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Do you really need help at wide receiver or something? If you need Jenkins as one of your starters, then this trade is ALMOST acceptable, but it still isn’t. Keep Welker, who is a PPR champ!

        As for QB’s, Stafford – 5 points will probably end up being pretty close to Tebow. Tebow’s rushing yards will make up for a TD a game most of the time and if he can throw one or two short TD’s as well, he’ll put up decent numbers.

    • Dennis 1:49 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I am have a BYE coming up and am trying to decide which WR to drop – Manningham or DHB. I am starting Mike Wallace, Desean Jackson and Lloyd, so really whoever I keep is for upside/future injury risk. Who do people think has the most potential going forward?

      • Brandon 9:29 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Keep Heyward-Bey, who is all upside from here on out. Once Carson Palmer gets used to the offense, Heyward-Bey could get even better.

        Sure, I’d probably go Antonio Brown if it’s a one week thing, otherwise i like Demaryius Thomas if he stays healthy and Michael Crabtree (but not this week with a tough match-up.)

    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 8 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against eachother. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

     
    • chris 2:48 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Vick. He’s getting rated higher than I’d expect against Dallas, based on how QBs have performed thus far. Is that a function of Dallas’ pass D being largely pass rush based, as opposed to particularly strong coverage?

      • Brandon 3:29 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The Cowboys have been great against the run, which means Vick will probably end up throwing the ball a lot. Of course I’m sure he’ll also run a lot as he scrambles around and the pocket breaks down. I don’t think the Cowboys secondary is anything special and they’ll be tested by DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. I like Vick this week at home on prime time TV.

      • Mike 12:46 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Do you guys know something I dont know?? I see Branch up higher on the list then I expected. I was thinking that since Pit is brutal on WR and is #1 in fantasy points prevented, that I would bench Branch for Gaffney, who should do well at Buff. Any thoughts?????

        • Mike 9:26 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          will you put gaffney up there, or just recommend Gaffney vs. Branch?? See previous post above.

          • Brandon 9:34 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Gaffney and Branch are already on the list. Gaffney is a couple spots under Branch. The Steelers pass defense has been good…against BAL, SEA, IND, HOU, TEN, JAX and ARZ. I have a feeling this week they give up a few more yards then they did against some of those guys. Gaffney is a good play too though, with Santana Moss out.

      I have Antonio Gates and Brandon Pettigrew. I only have 3 RB, Arian Foster, Forte, and Macgahee. Well Forte is on a bye and Macgahee is hurt. Should I trade Pettigrew for someone like Chris Johnson or would I be better off dropping someone like Mario Manningham who hasnt produced at all this year to pick up Alfonso Smith who will be filling in since Beanie Wells is hurt?

      • Brandon 3:51 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Definitely trade Pettigrew for Chris Johnson if you can. Johnson has been terrible, but you already have a good tight end and Chris Johnson’s upside is big (and he has a great match-up this week.) If you can’t do that, then you could drop a bad receiver or someone for Smith for the week. Good luck!

      • Brandon 9:44 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t drop him for any of those guys unless you absolutely had to. I’m thinking Williams could improve in the second half after the BYE as he’s getting so many targets and has started improving a bit the past few weeks. The team is also trying to get Josh Freeman back to the basics or something over the BYE and get him back to what was working last season for him, so that could possibly help as well.

        • e-roc 2:45 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I have 5 WRs. 3 are on a BYE (Roddy, DHBey, and Mike Williams). Are you suggesting that I sacrifice whatever points I might get to keep him? I’m cool with that. My guess is I’m only giving up 10-15 points by not starting anyone.

          • Brandon 9:39 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Can you you only drop a WR to get a replacement? Do you have any other dead weight on your team you could sacrifice? If not, then maybe you gamble and grab Demaryius Thomas or something. I prefer to never start a team with an empty roster spot!

            • e-roc 9:42 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink

              I wish I could. Our league only allows 2 WR bench spots and my 5 WRs are:

              Roddy White (Bye)
              Megatron (v. DEN)
              Mike Williams (Bye)
              DHB (Bye)
              Torrey Smith (v. ARI)

              Mike Williams is the dead weight. 44th best WR in our league.. =/

              I’d say yes if you need help at WR and have a little RB depth to spare. if Torain is one of your top two starters though, you probably need to keep him, especially now that Tim Hightower is out for the year.

      • Brandon 10:22 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Added those guys to the list. At tight end I like Pettigrew a TINY bit more than Gronk, as Gronkowski is usually so reliant on touchdowns to earn points. As for your flex spot, I like all three, but I’d roll with a rested and healthy Stevie Johnson. Good luck!

              The trade is more involved, but the other players aren’t relevant as I don’t need them. Trade is out there to be excepted. Full trade is me getting Welker, Best and Detroit D (I’d drop) for Shaub (I don’t need him as he’s my 3rd Qb), Smith or Austin and Jermaine Grsham (backup).

      • Brandon 11:29 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’ve added those receivers. You have to go with Brown against the Patriots if that’s the question. As for the waiver question, I’d hang on to Jordy Nelson and Demaryius Thomas. Cruz and Manningham are close, but they could keep switching back and forth each week as the #2 in NY and it could get pretty frustrating.

        • TJ 2:37 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks – I totally agree with you on Brown, he’s actually a pretty safe bet here if he’s returning too.

          On the waiver Q, forgot to mention Little….. I’m thinking this week he’s not a great play, but more consistency than Thomas going forward?

          • Brandon 9:41 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Thomas is higher risk, but the upside is higher than Little’s at this point as well. If you’re a gambling man, go Thomas. If you want some safe 6-10 points, go Little.

        Seems like a bit too much for me. Austin and Chris Johnson should be more than enough for McCoy and even that is pushing it. Can you wait until after this weekend? I’m very interested to see what Chris Johnson does. If he is bad again, I’m writing him off. Otherwise, he could make a comeback of sorts.

      Sorry…I posted this question in an older post, so I’m redoing it here:

      What do you think about a trade of Tebow for Murray? I have Brees and Cutler for bye week, so I really don’t need Tebow. Both only have one week under their belts, so both are a risk.

      • Brandon 3:04 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The only problem with Murray is that when Felix Jones returns in a couple weeks, he will end up splitting carries. Tebow will be the quarterback for the rest of the year as long as the team is competitive. If you need running back help right now, go for it, but if Murray is just going to be a backup, you might try to trade for someone else. Keep in mind that Murray’s trade value is probably near the ceiling right now after that huge game last week.

    • Adam 11:57 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Antonio Brown ranked slightly below Marshall, but it’s pretty close. Brown has a killer match-up against the Patriots pass defense, but he’s not the number one target in the offense. I like Brown over Jenkins though, that’s for sure.

        I would think you could get a better receiver than Colston or Fitzgerald for Newton at this point.

        With Gates finally healthy, I think you have to go with him. Gronk had a huge game last year against the Steelers, but I’m pretty sure that means Pittsburgh will focus on keeping that from happening again. Aaron Hernandez was slowed down in that game last year and I see that changing this year. The only reason I go with Gates is because he’s one of Rivers’ top two targets, while Gronk has to fight for looks with Welker, Hernandez and Branch. Good luck!

      Fitzgerald or Stevie Johnson?

      VJax or Lynch?

      • Brandon 9:52 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        It’s a toss up with Stafford and Manning. Interestingly, the Dolphins are the worst against QBs in terms of fantasy points and the Broncos are the second worst, so both are great plays. Stafford is a little banged up this week, so for this time only I’d go with Manning. Go with Stevie Johnson over Fitz this week and Vincent Jackson over (Marshawn?) Lynch. Good luck!

      Hey – last second D/St question – where would any of you guys put SD & NE in that group, considering we get 1 pt per Kick return yard? (So lots of opposing kickoffs can be good, depending on the return teams. Punt yards are 1/2 that, rest of D scoring is standard).

      Thanks

        Just put those teams on the ranks. Don’t love either of them, but I think New England may have the best chance to catch a few interceptions or something and put up decent points. Good luck!

    Oh Ravens, how do I hate thee? Let me count the ways… 

    1. First of all, as a Patriots fan, it’s mandatory that I hate the Ravens after they knocked New England out of the playoffs inΒ embarrassingΒ fashion a few years ago.
    2. League #1: Billy Cundiff – I needed 8 points from you to win…not a HUGE thing to ask. You got 1.
    3. League #2: Ray Rice – Needed about 16 points, something you’ve done in nearly every game this year. You got 4.
    4. League #3: Joe Flacco – I know this would have been tough, but you could have gone out and repeated your week three performance for 30+ points and earned me a win. You got 9.
    Soooo…I guess there are four ways in which I hate the Ravens. If you add up the times I’ve hated Joe Flacco this year though, there are probably an additional 3-4 hates in there somewhere.

      Yeah thanks Ray Rice for the choke…and fumble! Anyway i have Pettigrew and Gronkowski on my team. Do you think it would be a risk that pays off if i trade Pettigrew for Tony Gonzales and then start him instead of Gronkowski since Atlanta is playing the Colts

              Don’t forget what happened last year. Gronk 3 tds 72 yards. Brady has shown all year the he LOVES to throw to his TEs. Even with Hernandez playing as well I still give Gronk a better chance of scoring more than Pettigrew. IMO of course πŸ™‚

              Yeah they will and my gut is to play Gronkowski and Welker because im sure they will combine for most the receptions…hopefully. But im worried about Troy Polamalu. He can be hell on a recieving tight end he doesnt like to stay in the typical safety position unless he has to lol. But i agree with you on who to play i think Brady and Belichick will find a way to play around him

          I am having the same dilemma and I am also starting Gronk, even if Pettigrew is getting a lot more attention since Best is out. Also, there is a chance that Stafford won’t play or at least he will be banged up.

      As a Flacco owner, would you be interested in a trade for Tebow? I’m looking to unload Teebird and acquire a solid WR or some very decent RB depth. I’m not sure exactly what to go for, though.

      • Adam 11:02 am on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        As an aside, if you type “Flacco” on an iPhone, the auto-correct changes it to “flaccid”. Awesome.

      • Brandon 3:36 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        As a Flacco owner, I would indeed be interested in Tebow. However, I would only give up a mediocre receiver for him until he proves himself better than what he did last game. Tebow might go for someone like Miles Austin or something at this point if you’re lucky.

    • Corey 11:57 am on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      So I have a question for some of the guys here. I’ve been doing ff for years so i’m not out to screw anyone on trades and all that. But I have run into a dilemma and I’m asking for some advice. First off here is my roster in a standard 8 team league.

      Ben Roethlisberger,Tim Tebow,Arian Foster,Darren McFadden,Ryan Mathews,Peyton Hillis,Andre Johnson,Mike Wallace,Brandon Lloyd,Terrell Owens,James Jones,Owen Daniels,Jason Hanson,Sebastian Janikowski,Cowboys, 49ers

      Cowboys, Jones, Hanson were all bye week fill ins and will be going back to waivers. Here is what I need some advice. As you can see my QB and TE position is not really that strong. Ben has picked up his play the last few weeks so I”m not necessarily worried about that but I’m seriously interested in upgrading Daniels. And the target I’m after is Jimmy Graham.

      The owner who has him is having alot of problems with RB depth but he has a stock of wrs. I’m heavy on both WR/RB and am willing to help him out to help me out as well.

      Deangelo Williams, Daniel Thomas, Fred Jackson, Blount and Smith *car* Jennings/Bryant/D.Jackson/Julio

      He does also have jermichael finley on the bench.

      So here is what I need some advice on. Would offering lets say Daniels and either McFadden or Mathews for Graham and Jennings be more fair to both sides or do you think this falls heavy to one side? Or instead of Jennings look for D.jackson or bryant. He also has Brady as well who i’m interested in at qb. Thanks for any advice πŸ™‚

      • Adam 4:00 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’d target Daniels and Mathews for Graham, 2-for-1. I don’t think you’re going to get both Graham and Jennings. You could start asking for both and negotiate down.

        • Corey 4:41 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Yea thats what I figured I was going to offer him was a 2 for 1, I just didn’t want to over/under value it. Thanks

    • jlmac 11:58 am on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Need some WR help…R.White and VJax have been less than remarkable. D. Nelson, M. Jenkins and S. Breaston on waiver. Liking what KC has been doing?? Pick one.

      • jlmac 12:26 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Add D. Thomas(Denver) and N. Washington to the list.

      • Joshua 1:06 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I would say N Washington. I think with the Texans taking over the AFC south the Titans know they have to step up some to make sure they stay contenders for the division. Washington has some good stats and they few games ive seen him play looked like some good hands too. Oh and they are playing the colts next week πŸ™‚

      • Corey 1:11 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Well, I would say no to nelson just to the fact that he’s not targeted enough anymore *too many option in buffalo* and no to Breaston just because he’s a #2 and will lose most looks for Bowe. I would look to get Jenkins. I would hold off on Thomas one more week or grab him and jenkins if you have bench space just to see how he does, keep in mind though that Tebow and his crappy accuracy is throwing him the ball. Washington hasn’t done anything with Britts exit. Washington is the #1 but he is not getting enough catches. 8 catches over the last 3 games and his only big game was the denver game when britt went down. that was with britt in the game too. From what I’ve been hearing, TEN is looking to add T.O to their wr core and even then I still don’t get washington. Boldin put over 100 yards on houston last week and Washington had 1 catch for 10 yards.

        Go grab Jenkins and Thomas if you can. Jenkins 1st though. If Harvin has the coverage Jenkins will be the next in line receiver there.

        Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

        • Joshua 1:21 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I was thinking Jenkins also but what kept me from going that direction is the Vikings dont have an easy schedule for the rest of the year especially for a rookie QB(Ponder) only having two games in the NFL. And my opinion on Thomas is he is a talented reciever but Jacksonville QB(Gabbert) has horrible “drop and pass” mechanics. These are just my opinions could be wrong could be right hope it helps.

          • Joshua 1:30 pm on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Oh and also regaurding Terell Owens, i think at this point in his career he is more of a distraction to the safeties than a number one recieving threat for a team.

      • Brandon 3:37 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I like Demaryius Thomas and Steve Breaston…but not at the cost of Roddy White or Vincent Jackson if that’s what you’re asking.

      In need of some advice. I am in a desperate QB situation. In a 12 team, 2QB league. (2QB, 2WR, 2RB, TE, W/T, K, Def).

      My current team is:

      QB – AJ Feeley, Tarvaris Jackson, Carson Palmer, Jay Cutler
      WR – Eric Decker, Hakeem Nicks, Doug Baldwin (dropping him this week for Heath Miller), Jordy Nelson, Mario Manningham
      RB – Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, Beanie Wells
      TE – Jermichael Finley (Heath Miller, pending waiver)
      K – Stephen Gostkowski, Mason Crosby
      Def – Detroit

      The one person who is willing to entertain trade requests team is below.

      QB – Matthew Stafford, Josh Beck, Christian Ponder, Charlie Whitehurst
      WR – Anquan Boldin, Vincent JAckson, Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter
      RB – Fred Jackson, Frank Gore, Darren McFadden, Tashard Choice
      TE – Greg Olsen, Scott Chandler
      K – Nick Novak
      Def – Chicago

      I am considering packaging Beanie Wells and/or Mario Manningham (+/-Carson Palmer)into a deal. Any suggestions on whether i should pursue Beck or Ponder (as I am certain he will not be willing to deal Stafford). What kind of a trade should I offer.

      (I’ve sent another trade proposal to another guy but have not heard a response. That one is Wells and Manningham for Hasselbeck and Marcedes Lewis. You guys think i should keep this one on the table?)

      Thanks in advance!

      • Brandon 3:03 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        No way you do Stafford and Johnson for Cam Newton (and how is Roddy White a throw in? :-)) I wouldn’t even trade Stafford and S-Jax for Newton I don’t think, but it’s much closer. In one of my leagues, Newton only has 25 more points than Stafford through seven games, so in theory he’s only worth 3-4 more points a week depending on your league scoring (although he is healthier at the moment.) I like the first deal though if you get Roddy White along with Newton. Hope this helps!

      Out of Brandon Jacobs and Ben Tate…who would you pick and why??

      • Corey 9:52 am on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I think the safer play here is to go with Tate. The reasoning behind this is really that the Texans have a much better O’line and Tate will have a better advantage of getting carries and decent yardage. Jacobs will get some goal line carries but you can’t really base it off of that. IE Tolbert and Mathews. As good as Bradshaw has been running lately I don’t see much of Jacobs. Plus the fact he’s nursing a mcl sprain might hamper that big body the rest of the year.

        I would get Tate.

        Actually, I think you’re talking more long term there I guess, as Mike Williams is on a BYE this week. It seems crazy, but I like Williams the best of the bunch. Wayne has proven that he’s not a superstar unless he has a superstar quarterback, while Victor Cruz has come back down to earth recently. Williams seems to be improving by the week and proved last year (with the same QB) that he can be a star. He’s getting tons of looks each week too…he just needs to catch more!

      Love the site! I’m very much a fantasy football rookie, and this site has been tremendously helpful.

      I am trying to decide who to start as my RB2 and Flex in an ESPN standard 14 team league. Which two of: Battle, Moreno, Gaffney?

      I am disinclined to start Moreno because I’ll eb starting Tebow, and don’t like betting against myself like that.

      Also, if I could pick him up, would Demayrius Thomas be worth the start over Gaffney?

      And should I pick up Bernard Scott, dumping Kendall Hunter or Stevan Ridley to do it?

      Thanks very much for any input

      • Brandon 3:42 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hmm, yes to Bernard Scott over Hunter or Ridley, who have very little value at this point. Pick up Demaryius Thomas while you’re at it with the other guy. As for your RB2 and Flex spots, go Battle and Moreno. Gaffney could pick it up with Santana Moss out, but the Broncos will be running the ball all day with Tebow under center, since they don’t trust him to throw the ball. Good luck!

      Do you think Foster is going to have a similar week against Jacksonville and therefore allow Tate to come in for sloppy seconds again.
      Or would I be safer to play Marshall.

      • Corey 11:37 am on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        After seeing what the jags did to Rice I would be hesitant to start Tate. Giants have a very soft secondary and Marshall is the #1, however they did pickup another qb incase moore struggles. Is there anyone else on waivers you can spot fill this week?

        • trade'em if you got'em 11:41 am on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I have Thomas also, but he hasn’t been showing improvement. And the waiver isn’t pretty.

          I’m also trying to make a trade for Dez Bryant. I was offering Daniel Thomas and Jacoby Ford. I also have Best and Wells who are injured at the moment but are supposed to return.
          do you think any of those two combos or even three players would be a fair trade for Bryant or am I way off?

            • Corey 11:48 am on October 26, 2011 Permalink

              I would almost tell you to roll the dice with Thomas this week. Look at the past 4 matchups against the giants in the rushing game. 541 yards, 6 touchdowns, 94 total ff points to rbs the past 4 games. That’s close to 25 points a game to rbs.

              As far as trying to get Bryant, I’m not sure thomas/ford will get it done. I think you package Best or wells to get Bryant and another player.

              it’s so close with the other 3 players that just in how much of a down grade to romo it’s not a good trade. Downgrade is about 60 ff points. Romo takes about 3 games to get that, and the fact he’s only hit 21 once. Reject

              Thats actually a fairly decent trade IMO. You get a killer RB, bit of a downgrade at qb and so so on Holmes. I would say take it.
              Combined Points per game for his players going to you is. 14.06
              Combined Points per game for your players going to him is. 11.4

              It’s a good deal

              If you can trade Austin for Fred Jackson I take that trade.

      Fantasy football question:

      I have been offered Jeremy Maclin and Peyton Hillis for Demarco Murray and Anquan Boldin. My current rbs are Fred Jackson, Jahvid Best M. Morris Battle Torrain Carter Maurice Jones Drew, current Wr are Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson and Greg Little

      • Corey 1:11 am on October 25, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        NO. Hillis is a bust, plus he’s hurt and will be losing carries to Hardesty. Maclin is a so so receiver. Murray has a great run of matchups, and Boldin is the #1 for Bal. REJECT πŸ™‚
