At this point in this season, with not having to worry about byes anymore, i'd get them both just so someone else doesn't beat you with the one you don't have.

I'd drop Nicks or White for him. Doesn't matter which, don't see much upside with either. Would have dropped both for someone about 6 weeks ago.

Why would you even own Keenum if you had Rivers? I'm stuck with Matt Ryan in one league and that's the only reason why I went with Keenum this week. Sure wish I had your problem.

I don't know. Billicheck has shown in the past that he fears Manning more than anything else. Even lost a game by going for a ridiculous 4th down because he knew if Manning got the ball again he would probably lose. 4th down failed and he lost anyways but still. I can see them running the ball more today trying to control the clock, especially with the struggles that their offense has had this year. With both featured backs in, I can see them both getting a lot of work. I Would bet both have similar yardage totals by the end of the game but flip a coin as to who ends up with the tds. I'd probably roll with Vereen only because I don't think he has the fumble potential so shouldn't be at risk for losing carried due to that.

Well, that's why we needed that information. RG3 is still a big injury risk and in anything more than a 10 team league, I wouldn't drop Ryan. But in your case, with options available in FA, I would.

Are you an idiot? Seriously asking if Harvin was too much for Forte? I wouldn't play in a league where a trade like this was allowed.

I don't see whats wrong with this trade. Its clearly a keeper league and Julio is the best player involved. Wes Welker is at the end of his career and Jackson has been boom or bust most of his career. He might become a stud with Foles but we still need to see more to be sure. Floyd is a young player that gets to learn behind Fitzgerald as well. Obviously one side is getting a much better deal for just this year but maybe the other team is already out of playoff contention anyways and is looking to the future. Without knowing how many teams and how many keepers its hard to know the value of Floyd and what your draft picks are really worth however. Its not a bad trade and not one I would veto. I'd rather have the Welker side as well but its not that far off. One side just has more faith in Julio's recovery than the other team does.

Yes, the defense did give up the points. When you own a defense, you own everything that is considered the defense. When a QB turns the ball over, the team returning the ball becomes the offense and the team that is trying to stop the ball carrier from scoring becomes the defense due to the change of possession. If you don't like the way this works, then don't use defenses. Use IDP so you can be sure that you only get points for what defensive players do. This works for offensive players as well when they get a tackle or fumble recovery if your league gives points for these things with the IDP players.

I don't understand your logic in this trade. Are you able to start 6 WRs or something? You're already loaded at the position, Wallace doesn't add anything to your team and will sit on the bench anyways. I'd rather take the gamble that Foles is legit and drop Pryor. Rg3 is too much of an injury risk to trust through the season.

If I had Foles, and I do in one league, I would want a quality backup if the options in FA are thin. No way I'd move Cutler for Golden Tate. If you can get Marshall or Welker however, i'd take that risk all day.
- Andrew, Skyler Andrew, Skyler Nov 5, 2013 12:46 AM Flag
I agree with both of you. Cutler should be back and we don't know how badly Rodgers is hurt. If I owned both, I'd move whichever got me more in return. If I owned one and your asking if you should trade straight up for the other, I'd rather just keep the one I have now. I guess your question just isn't specific enough.

And no one else but the real manning has done anything against the Oakland D either this year. Not every team is going to come in and run up the score just for the sake of running up the score. Eli sucks and so do the Giants. Anything can happen obviously, but it isn't very likely.
- Andrew, Skyler Andrew, Skyler Nov 5, 2013 12:21 AM Flag
I'd drop Ryan for either one. I'm still not sold on Foles or that Eagles offense. But Cutler is also coming back from an injury. With Dalton, you can gamble either way. I just don't see any upside with Ryan at this point.

Ivory is worthless. Like Amendola, it's only a matter of time until he gets hurt again. Powell has also been good enough this year that Ivory will never be the every down back. Isn't even guaranteed two downs. Obviously, Marshall has more value than Stacy but I didn't see a third RB in your lineup so you have to make the move to ensure depth. If either of your starting two go down Stacy will be a reliable replacement and won't be far off from Marshall in the flex anyways.

If you need a defense and he is the worst player that you have then of course you can drop him.
