    Should I try to change my team heading into playoffs?

    12 team League, Non PPR- just moved into the 2nd seed and a 1st round bye (week 14) which most likely will hold up through next week. My team is below: what do you guys think?

    QB- Eli Manning
    WR- Eric Decker
    WR- Mike Wallace
    RB- Doug Martin
    RB- Lesean McCoy
    TE- Heath Miller
    WR/RB- Chris Johnson
    Def- Houston
    K- Matt Bryant

    Beanie Wells
    Danny Amendola
    Brandon Myers
    Denario Alexander
    Steven Jackson

    My rb depth is good and Eli looks like he's back....Also big ben should be back next week for Heath and Wallace----only thing I would like to change is maybe getting a more consistent WR. Its kinda of boom/bust with Decker and Wallace- what do you guys think??

    • Your team looks pretty good. The only concerns I have is LeSean McCoy for obvious injury concerns, and Wallace because that whole Steelers offense is lost without Big Ben. He may come back next week, but until we know that for certain, Wallace is not a good play. I would do that trade for Victor Cruz. You're getting a top WR, and you'll get more bang for your buck by pairing Eli with Cruz. Every pass from Eli to Cruz will benefit both players. Moreover, I wouldn't be afraid of Eli vs the Baltimore Defense. They're not the same defense they used to be because of their injuries, and Eli is capable of good numbers against tough defenses. If you feel the need to pick up another QB, I would judge the health of Big Ben and Alex Smith to determine if you should add Big Ben or Kaepernick. But definitely do that Cruz/Wallace trade and pick up a RB like Moreno or Michael Bush to cover your RBs while McCoy is out.

      Would you mind answering my question labeled "Rank these RBs for Week 13/Rest of Season?" Thanks.

      • Yeah I'm not too concerned about Shady because at the most he will miss 1 more game and even though Bryce Brown just went off he fumbled twice (NO idea why andy reid just now decided to run the ball???)----I think I may have to do that trade for Cruz---Im pretty sure Big Ben will be back next week but I still do have 2 players on the same team which I'm not a fan of so I keep Heath and get Cruz

    • im in kind of the same boat, I have wallace, decker, martin, and mccoy on the same team. your good for now because steven jackson is good depth while mccoy is out, my concern and urs should be too that the eagles hold on putting mccoy back out because the season is lost. i would look on the waiver wire for receivers, i was able to pick up greg jennings a week ago off waivers and ive been holding on to him in case hes healthy for the playoffs. pierre garcon is another guy that might be available. the problem is its a 12 team league so probably not but u get the idea
