Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Bradshaw time sharing with TRich has "a bigger role" than Davis without Charles, Brown without Mathews and Khiry without Ingram? Ummmm.. No, Bradshaw has a smaller role, but, if he defies history and stays healthy his smaller role may last longer.
Lots of quality choices: Davis, Brown, Khiry, Miller, Bradshaw, in that order would be my choices. None of the others are of interest (Rainey timeshares or backs up Martin, Pierce is a backup in starter's garb and Ridley is a fumble away from sitting down...AGAIN).
At 6, unless you play with dullards, Davis won't make it to you, but Brown may, and he may be preferable to Rainey over the next few weeks as I prefer the Chargers rushing attack and I doubt Woodhead threatens Brown's likely workload as much as Martin threatens Rainey's.
I wouldn't, but offer Morris and see. Possibly you get a counter for Morris and a part you can spare. No, a Jennings offer would likely result in a rejection with no counter and little likelihood of kindling interest with a second offer.

As the Cobb owner I would reject without counter. Witten has played poorly in consecutive games. Your would be trade partner can do as well with a waiver wire TE. So, your offer comes down to Tate for Cobb: no.

Sanu. Quick plays in a struggling offense that figures to be very inconsistent. Sanu plays in a dynamic offense missing all of its top 3 receivers.

Yep, mediocre QB play trumps WR talent every time: see Green, AJ; Gordon, Josh; Patterson, Cordarelle; Fitzgerald, Larry; Harvin, Percy; Johnson, Andre (to name a VERY few).

I think he's the most talented rookie WR, just like every NFL team did before, during and after the draft. Talent wins out (see Allen, Keenan; Gordon, Josh; etc).

Ernest, you're not getting replies and I've deferred doing because I've never believed Gerhart offered a reasonable chance at succeeding in this role. I'm not a Gerhart fan and I have never understood how a team with significant OLine deficiencies can have a successful bell cow who lacks basic elusiveness. Add to the mix what looks like a high ankle sprain that he figures to struggle with for the foreseeable future and, yes, it's definitely time to move on. I prefer all 3 free agents over Gerhart. Good luck.

It's the Pats. The gameplan is always to play to the opponent's weaknesses not to the Pats strengths. It usually works but it makes for unpredictable player results. Vereen is the Pats best back. He will be fine. But you have to bear with games like this one where the opponent lacks the strength and depth to contest the Pats muscle up front, so the plan is 6 OLinemen and Ridley up the gut.

He can't beat coverage anymore and depends on "fronting" or screening out the proximate defender. Some weeks Brees will throw into coverage for Colston and sometimes he won't. He didn't today.

Allison gives solid insight. Kendall Wright primarily faces the Dallas slot corner who was toasted all game long vs the 9rs. Cooks likely has Stills back plus a Browns defense which must be better than in looked last week. I prefer Wright and I'm starting him over Decker in one league, but both should be productive. Good luck.

I'm starting Bush in a very similar situation, but it's easy to argue the other way as Carolina likely has the toughest front 7 in the league. I just see the pressure to contain Calvin and Tate as presenting some opportunity lanes for Reggae. But, no question, I may be wrong.

Tough one. Marshall tends to play through everything and, with both Alshon and the WR3 both likely out and Santonio Holmes and scrubs likely playing WR2 & 3, odds are Cutler will force feed Marshall vs banged up and not very talented 9rs cornerbacks. But I far prefer Roddy to Boldin. I would take the chance on Marshall but you can argue for either play. Good luck John G.

Unsure particularly given the doubts about Palmer's health. Fitz's yards at the catch plunged by a huge amount something like over 2 yards last season indicating a significant role change to more of a possession receiver. With Floyd's growth, the addition of Brown and the desire to feed Ellington in space it's unclear how reliant this offense figures to be on Fitz as a chains mover.
