Don't forget that Green came in the league with a lot more polish, while Jones was the superior athlete. After a few years in the league Jones is still the superior athlete while Green's polish advantage has dwindled.

I second that - I had Romo in one league and he scared me enough after two weeks I ran to overpay for an upgrade.
Between Forte, Murray, and Martin it doesn't look like you really need another RB as badly as you need to hold onto your top WR.

Start times are what makes this one tricky since the other 2 go in the early games. I'd say its still worth the gamble - even if JC plays I can't imagine he'll get the bulk of the carries. However, it does look like Davis is a 1 week pick up - which makes me a sad panda.

Depends on the owner's needs and who their back up is. I offered more than that and got laughed at. Perhaps aim for a little bit lower hanging fruit. Rodgers owners tend to think he could be #1.

I'd go Tate. Love Douglas' situation w/ White out and a traveling TB DEF on a short week - but Det/GB could be a shootout!

I know, but I waited until just before I drafted a kicker to pick up a back up QB (which was stupid because I originally drafted Romo as a starter). I've still got a few weeks to see if anyone separates themselves from the back, like Locker, McKown (yikes!), Ben, or Eli...
I'm just curious if the consensus thinks that it looks like I've got the fire power to drag me into the playoffs. Its a very competitive league, sans 1 team -- and I just dumped a ton of depth to beef up my starters, and blew my #1 waiver spot after going 1-1. 12 team ppr, QB's get 6 pts/TD
QB: Ryan (Tannehill)
WR: Brown, Maclin (Fitzgerald)
RB: Forte, Vareen (D. Brown)
TE: Bennett (Reed/Kelce)
W/R/T: K. Davis

Can't say I love those choices, but I'd go Cruz for this week if you need a safe pick - Ingram if you need to gamble. Its likely that you'll be using Ingram going forward, but I'm not ready to through away 3 years of under-performing on one game of solid production. And that's coming from a die-hard Bama fan.

Thanks for the input, you certainly gave me something to think about.. If it changes anything our QB settings are a little wonky. We get 6pts for a TD, 35 yards/point, .25/completion and -.25/incompletion. I like Vareen as a high end ppr RB2, but I'm extremely bullish on Bell as well -- and I'm expecting a Bush injury at some point this year.
