Who to start?
Weeden vs Arizona
Hoyer vs TB
I think Hoyer has the better matchup, but there is always the risk that he loses the job at halftime. I'm leaning Hoyer right now. What do you think?

I can't imagine that you don't have a more viable drop than Tate on your roster. He still got twice as many carries as any other Brown and has has 15+ each of the last 4 games. Losing Mack killed that run game, not a couple of talented backups. Things could pick up when Gordon comes back or they could get worse if Manziel takes over, either way he is worth stashing a few more weeks.

In a non-PPR, i'd take LaFell. Hawkins has been solid all year but he will be lucky to finish the year with 3 tds at this rate. And for me, Adams isn't worth picking up unless someone ahead of him goes down with an injury.

Patterson, Randle and Davis are dead weight so you might as well drop one of them for Jackson. Why roster two TEs when Thomas already had his bye? I just don't get it.

It's a 16 team league. There is no one at RB more than 15% owned available. Shonn Green, Taliaferro and Helu are as good as it gets. This is what makes dropping any of these guys difficult as they will all probably be picked up off waivers once dropped. Thanks for your advice though, those were the two I was leaning towards dropping.

So is this a league of friends? And you know for sure that the 0-7 team owner has decided for himself to make this trade? And yes, if the commish is setting the lineups for the 0-7 team, then he is playing two teams. If you guys are all friends then just talk about it and work it out. Friends should be able to do that. If this is a random yahoo league, then it's more likely that the commish sent the trade and then went in and accepted it knowing the 0-7 owner doesn't pay attention to his team anyways.

16 team standard h2h. We only get 4 bench spots. I need a kicker for this week as I dropped mine and I am wondering if I should handcuff Murray with Randle. If I do the handcuff, then I need to drop two of these guys. Right now my bench is as follows:
Hilton, Michael Floyd, Vincent Jackson (Been starting one in the flex up to now)
Murray, Bradshaw (Scared of Murray workload and both of their injury histories)
Bench is listed above

If you are second in scoring and only 2-5 then your record is just a reflection of bad luck and nothing else. There is no reason to make this kind of move. Hoyer is no guarantee to keep his job and Williams is pretty TD dependent for his points. Mckinnon will only increase in value from here. This is a bad trade all around, especially in a 2 QB league.

I'd veto the trade. If the commish is going to be playing two teams every week then he shouldn't be allowed to make trades between them. Even if he isn't trying to purposefully cheat, it's still a dirty trade and he's taking advantage of his ability to manipulate the other team. I would bet if anyone else sent that offer they wouldn't even have been responded to. These other people here are either crazy or didn't read your post all the way through. I also wont use the veto unless it looks like collusion but your commish is clearly abusing his power here.

Unless this is a 16+ team league, Johnson should be a FA and has zero value. Morris is worth a 4th or 5th round pick in regular leagues. If you keep two players, then your talking a 2-3 round pick in your format. If you don't get that then don't be stupid. Keep Morris, this is a terrible deal.

Dixon is not an every down back and if given the job, won't be a viable fantasy player. Brown is explosive and if given the job can do great things with the ball. More than likely, Brown will be the every down guy with Dixon being the goal line back. If Dixon is the guy, neither are worth owning.

Well, you also have to make the playoffs for any of that to matter. If you are a borderline playoff contender, Cam might help you get there but Gordon won't. Obviously, once fantasy playoffs roll around, I'd rather have Gordon. But you have to get there first. That's why I said if he's got a good record in his league that I would keep Gordon. I play in a 16 team league as well, so I know how hard it is to fill in your roster late in the year lol!

10 game suspension does not include the bye week. 10 games and 1 bye means he doesn't come back until week 12. I posted the quote, he is not eligible until week 12 when they play the Panthers.

Bad trade. Stafford always tanks at the end of the year and his best receiver is out and will probably play hurt all year. Spiller has been terrible unless your league counts return yards and Green is a question mark going forward. Stick with what you have.

I would rather lose with my first round pick than give him away and help someone else take the championship. You don't just give away a healthy first round pick. Stick with what you have and hope for the best. If he was injured or something it would be different. GB offense has been playing a bit better the last couple of weeks and if they continue to improve, Lacy should be more productive. Make sure you grab Starks just in case though. Starks really should be the starter anyways in GB.
