Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

That's true also. I didn't think of that. The only problem I see is that Campbell already looks like he's in sheer terror out there, and he might want to rely on his WRs he's been playing with and is most comfortable with.

If you do have to trade though, aim for the top five:
A good way to approach a trade is to see who has Kellen Winslow (#6) or Heath Miller (#4) and offer them a trade, since those guys have byes this week. I managed to score Ben Roethlisberger for my Matt Ryan because the guy I trade with had both QBs out in the same week and didn't have a good backup. It might work for you.

You can't afford to be giving up Kevin Smith with just Brown and Thomas making up the difference. Also frankly, Witten isn't pulling in great numbers this year. He's 11th for tight ends. Who are the top 3 points earners on waivers? Is Vianthe Shiancoe or Zach Miller there, because they're getting roughly the same amount of points as Witten. If Brent Celek is still available, which I've found he is in a few leagues of mine, he's a better bet than all of them.
That's up to you. I wouldn't do it personally. This isn't draft time anymore, so the old favorites don't have any weight in my mind. Smith isn't being productive, and that's all I see.
I'm not sure why you think Romo has better weapons. He doesn't have anyone as productive weekly as Mike Sims-Walker and Maurice Jones-Drew. Go with Garrard.

If the other player has absolutely no one going on tomorrow, then I suppose you can sit Brown. However, you could potentially be losing points you may need to break seeding tie breakers for the playoffs. I would personally play him since a -6 game would be very rare.

People will tell you to keep waiting it out, but I say two weeks is good enough. Their value from last year is null and void by this point and I'm looking for performance. If Chris Johnson scores that much and LenDale has nothing, then he's dead weight. Frankly, tight ends are deep this year. Drop Olsen for someone else.

It's stupid to just drop him. He did score points you know. If anything, drop someone else on your bench taking up space for a RB on waivers like Michael Bush or Cadillac Williams and play them in LT's place for now. That way, if LT picks it up, you'll have wasted a week instead of regretting you dropped him.

You might want to see how LT does tonight before pulling the trigger on that. Addai's game is a fluke. LT even in a bad year will still likely score at least 7 TDs and and 1000 yards. Brees is dominating, but after watching tonight, Brady is also going to be dangerous this year, especially since the D looks like shit and Brady will have to gun it more often.

I know exactly what you guys mean. You see I drafted Andre Johnson and he had an unproductive week, so now I realize he's a bust.
