I agree with this, if you can do it. I think you have a better QB on your bench though. Why Sanders over Hunter and Floyd?

8 team league?
QB - C - you got the bottom of the barrel
RB - McCoy gets an A... the others, C-
WR - You're going to start Torrey Smith in an 8 team league, I'm gonna have to grade that a C-
TE - D. Bottom of the barrel again.
Overall : C- team for me, 8 team leagues should ALL have stacked teams, and this team would barely be considered awesome in a 12 teamer, too many question marks for my taste. (Gerhart for the team he's on, Tate, Murray, Cruz for health, Wallace for consistency, Colston for competition for targets)
Who you should start : looks like everyone is in the right place, Wallace is going to be shut down by the Pats this week, I would start Olsen over Pitta though. For your W / R I'd probably start Tate or Colston. The Jags are probably going to be way behind against the Eagles and Gerhart isn't much of a receiver. Good luck!

Floyd I think would be my call here. I'd give it a week to see how the Jackson / Garcon dynamic shakes out. Same with Evans / Jackson in Tampa. Hartline, vs. that secondary, no thanks.

QB - B-
RBs - B. Good on the depth, only one real monster in Forte. Martin just hasn't looked great. Brad Evans pointed out that 27% of his fantasy points have come in two games in his career. Still, he's young and could rebound.. I'm just not a fan. Jennings and Tate, backup retreads. Tate has a chance to shine but those boxes are going to be so stacked. Freeman, I'm drafting a lot it seems, I like him if Jackson misses time, which he will do. Jennings.. nothing to be TOO excited over. Should be solid enough.
WRs - C. Jordy is good, Roddy should be solid, but you're stuck starting TY, Terrance, or Hunter in a ten team league, not where you want to be.
TE - C. Just another not Jimmy Graham.
DEF - Defense drafted, check, not Seattle, check, grade : Incomplete
K - remembered to draft a kicker, check, can hit 50 yarders, check, remembered to make sure kicker has a job, check. Grade - A.
Overall I give your team a B minus.

Are you certain he's the "WR2"? WR 1 - Jimmy Graham
WR 2 - Colston
WR 3 - Stills or Cooks or RB out of the backfield
That said I'd much rather have him than Sanders...

Tough call. Ellington is going to get more work, Hill has looked like a beast in the preseason, it's hard to see them not using him. I think they want to keep Gio's workload in check, honestly.

If it were my team, I wouldn't be comfortable starting cooks. So many mouths to feed in N.O, and Marshall is mr. consistency. Gotta love those guys in fantasy. Of course, Manning is pretty consistent too. TE's outside of Graham, honestly, all of them will make you curse some weeks. (Even Graham when he's playing hurt will do that). Just saw that you do WR / WR and not WR x3, yeah, your team is fine like it is, you don't NEED that trade.

Depends on who else you're benching I guess. In a deep league I can see starting him at RB2. If you're that convinced you've seen into the crystal ball, by all means play the man.

I actually just benched Jennings for Bush. Wayne or Wright, eh, pick 'em.

There's a lot to like about both Foles (the offense he plays in, McCoy, Sproles, Maclin, Cooper, and Mathews are all very nice weapons) and Cameron (should benefit from Gordon's suspension, he's the only red zone target the Browns have)
- Health Inspection Health Inspection Sep 1, 2014 2:02 AM Flag
I'd lean towards accepting that trade, though it's hard to justify trading Manning, ever.. starting cooks is not where you want to be, Marshall should be a giant upgrade. Cameron is a downgrade and Foles is too, but I think the upgrade at WR justifies.

All the hype about Kelce is overblown I think. That offense is ALL about Jamaal Charles. Gates is the spoiler to Green really busting out, but is he worth adding? Maybe. I'm not a fan of Thomas (Ingram looks good and Khiry Robinson just looks more dynamic), or Andre Williams (put up huge numbers against terrible college competition last year, he looks slow on tape) although the speculation is he'll get the goal line carries. I might just drop Grimes. No need to carry him unless you have Foster. Although Foster probably will go snap at some point. Honestly? I'd just roll with Green. He has the most upside of those guys and when you wait until late in the draft, upside is all you can ask for. I did the same thing and wound up with Green too, and I'm quite happy about it.

I think your thinking on this is correct. The Seahawks were the #1 defense vs. QBs last year and there's no reason to think that's going to be changed. Also, they were the only defense not to be flagged (at least through three games) for a pass interference in the preseason. That's legit. I'm forced to start Rodgers and Nelson, so I hope they bust out, but I'm thinking that game is going to be a 17-16 type thing with all the numbers going Eddie Lacy and Marshawn Lynch's way...
- Health Inspection Health Inspection Sep 1, 2014 1:50 AM Flag
Yeah, I think he'd take that deal. I know I would if I were the Rodgers owner. Sproles, I'd hang on to him. In that offense he could be huge, and if anything were to happen to McCoy...
