    Answering questions

    I've been playing FF for a while, I'll answer any questions you have with some explanation if you need help. Sit/start, trades, whatever it is.

    Couple recommendations

    DeMarco Murray is going to be a stud...Felix Jones will be out a few weeks, Murray has looked better than FJ as a runner anyway and is a viable pass-catching back and blocker, so there's no reason he won't blow up in the next 4 weeks, playing STL (161 ypg, 4.8 ypc), PHI (124 ypc, 4.8 ypc), SEA (98 ypg, 3.1 ypc), BUF (136 ypg, 5.1 ypc)...also, Dallas will probably lead the Rams, Seahawks, and possibly the Bills, giving Murray a huge amount of work in at least 3 of these 4 games. I was ready to trade for Murray if I didn't get him off waivers.

    Pick up Maurice Morris now. Jahvid Best's concussion is way more severe than originally expected, and most likely won't play this week, or next week, is iffy after that, and could possibly miss the entire rest of the season. Linehan apparently loves Morris, and will definitely get the bulk this week over a mediocre at best Keiland Williams. Detroit hasn't been able to run with Jahvid Best and I'd expect them to run a lot in the near future if they can get some yardage this week. Harrison is done, Brown is still in Philly, and there's nothing left in Detroit. Atlanta isn't an amazing play, but after that, vs. DEN (124 ypg, 4.0 ypc), CHI (122 ypg, 5.4 ypc), and CAR (140 ypg, 4.8 ypc). If he's available, get him. Won't be RB1 material by any means or RB2 every week, but he'll squeeze out some good yardage in blowout games, TDs around the goal line, and passes through the air (good catcher).

    If you will have bye issues next week (ATL, CHI, GB, NYJ, OAK, TB) - you could be losing Turner, Forte, Starks/Grant, Greene, McFadden, and Blount/Graham, so you may need a guy .... BERNARD SCOTT. Although he's been horrible this year, he got a TD in week 5 and 11 carries in week 6. Benson is out in Week 8, so he'll likely get accustomed to the offense as a starter more in the bye week this week. This will be Scott's first real start, and could bring good things. He'll face SEA, and although they have been tough against the run, the last three games have been close and I think they'll definitely key on the passing game. Scott is good out of the backfield, and could be a solid flex PPR play in week 8.

    So have at it...ask me questions.
