tbh its purely the motivation of going up against his former team that keeps him in the running. Otherwise he's safely on the bench behind Vernon Davis. good advice bud, cheers

You need to fill a TE and a W/T slot. Your options are (in no particular order)
Jared Cook v his former team Tennesse
Tyler Efriet v Miami
Brian Hartline v Cincinatti
Nate Washington v the Rams
Leaning towards Cook and Washington but with the other two facing off tonight i'm swithering.
Pick 2, non PPR (but with return yards/TDs). Currently rank them in that order, but so tempted to boost Wilson against the Philly "Defence".
Also Bonus Question: Start Hartline v Baltimore or gamble on Keenan Allen v Oakland (Deep league + Bye Weeks....)

Hey bud, non-ppr. Two from Ray Rice, Bilal Powell, David Wilson and teenie tiny Danny Woodhead? I've got them in that order atm
Also whould you gamble on Keenan Allen v Oak over Brian Hartline v Bal?

Trade. Seriously, trade. You must have either a poor running back group or poor receivers to be sitting on both of these guys. Or you play with idiots. Either way trade.

Agreed. If Murrays a back up for you then take this. If Murray starts but you have a decent plan B take it. Only reject it if you have nothing to fill your rb2 slot for the next couple weeks

Absolutely not. That trade does not benefit you. Bryants worth aquiring, but Shady is far too high a price. Nicks is decent enough and Lamar will be good enough to spot you the bye weeks, MAtthews and S-Jax are not worth it at this point. In all honesty I'd be hesitant to trade just shady for the three guys he's offering...

In my defence when I drafted in mid-August RIce, Ridley and Wilson looked like the strongest rb corps in our league. Difference a fortnight makes, huh?

I have Wilson and Starks and I'm miffed (see my post for the full story). Tbh i'd seriously seriously consider Bell over the other two with that match-up if I had him.

Yeah, The Ridley owners probably a little worried right now, you could possibly cut Miller out and still get a bite, maybe Miller and the next WR up for Ridley and Hilton would work and keep you bush for starting/trading....
So I had a late pick and drafted Rice (v Teans if he plays) in the 1st and Ridley (v Buccs) in the second (12 team snake). Then David Wilson (v Panthers) further down the line. It has not exactly been the success story I'd hoped for.
At any rate I've quietly stockpiled depth at RB after the horror that was week 1 and now have Bradshaw (@SF), Powell (v Bills), Woodhead (@ Titans) and Starks (@Bengals) standing by.
Right now i'm thinking go Ridley and Bradshaw and hope for the best. Even if Rice is fit that Houston line is a brick wall and 49ers gave up ridiculous yards to Lynch. Wilson doesn't seem to have regained full trust and Panthers are stuffing the run. But Starks has be thinking about giving him a shot with Lacy out. Powell and Woodhead don't get serious consideration, they're trade bait if MAtthews or Ivory go down.
How do you look at this? Who would you start?
