Yes. Hopkins will stay involved all year, guaranteed. Forsett is 29 and a proven journeyman. Pierce and Taliaferro will both get carries, Forsett won't be a bellcow at any point this year.

You won't like my answer but Forsett is easily your most droppable player (at least until you hear about Gordon). I'd stick Cooks in your flex.

I'd roll with Pierce. I don't trust Forsett. Pierce got benched for fumbling...his first fumble of his career. It won't happen again. Most people will tell you to start Forsett but his talent and ability to get in the endzone doesn't come near Pierce's.

Can't bench Lacy if he's playing. I'd roll the dice on Pierce for three reasons: 1) Martin is banged up and was ineffective, 2) 70 of Ivory's 100 yards came on one play so he's unlikely the replicate last week, and 3) Pierce plays tonight so while I'd rather play Martin I don't know his status and need to make a decision now.

Yes. Trading for Ellington is a risk, but that is the only reason you getting an opportunity to buy-low. If you wait you won't get value like this. If they would really give up a rookie WR for Ellington I'd take that instantly.

Maclin and Smith. Evans is out of the question for anyone who saw McCown play last week. I like Hopkins, but the Texans won't be throwing a ton in a game they should win easily by simply playing good D and running.

Decker would be an easy one. The other one is tough. I'd likely play Rudolph due to a greater TD chance, but Clay definitely has a better shot at yards and points in general.

Donnell is the safer bet as Eli has a history with TEs and he dominated snaps at the position. Not to mention ARZ was by far the worst in the NFL vs TEs in 2013. Kelce is a bigger risk/reward but the Chiefs will certainly be throwing in this one.

Punk boy? How old are you child? ARZ and SEA run different schemes with ARZ running more man coverage. Sherman won't be shadowing Allen. Cobb and Nelson both had good numbers last week.

That backup center has one game and a full week of practice with Rivers. Definitely not a reason to play Greg Jennings over Keenan Allen...that is nuts.

Gore. Cooks will not be playing against Haden. The Bears run D is just that bad.
