    1) Todd isn't a waste of bandwidth. He may not always have the most popular opinion but we should respect the fact that he makes his point the best he can with statistics and logic. Even if you don't agree (hell I don't always) we need more of that on this site not less.

    2) Cobb didn't have a better game so I dont see your point.

    3) You are both good guys, so get along :lol:

    Start Pierce. But I did draft Moreno because I believe he's the better back.

    That Calvin Johnson touchdown just won me $50 bucks. Over 13 points and only 3 minutes in. 20 more points will get me to $150.

    Thank you, sir.

    There is another TD for you.

    You don't get the nickname Megatron without being a badass. I remember the year he came out I was saying I'd give up multiple early picks to move up for him. He is Randy Moss and Jerry Rice rolled into one. In my opinion will go down as the greatest WR to ever play the game barring injury.

    I plan to next year. I took a season off from playing and wanted to get back into it. You're feeling what I felt last night when J. Thomas put up 32 points for me. Except you made money :lol:

    The hardest part of fantasy football is to not blow up my team with trades after week 1. Even though I pulled out a very close win.

    1-1 in pay leagues. Had to put up a 186 spot to beat my opponent in my biggest money league...overcame romos crap week.
    1-3 overall with crap weeks in dynasty and ThePhins league.

    I think you have a solid team that will win quite a few games (ThePhins). I also feel I slightly overachieved this week.

    Absolutely. That team is going to need to score 30 to win games with that garbage d. He's going to have some Ints but I loaded up on cowboys. I have at least one on every team. I have rivers and romo in one league, cutler and romo in another and Palmer and romo in a 3rd. He's going to have 4000 and 30 td IMO. For a 7th/8th round pick where I got him that's fine by me.

    I have a PPR league:

    WR - Antonio Brown @ Bal, Michael Floyd @ NYG, Jeremy Maclin @ Indy, Brandin Cooks @ Cle (3 starters)

    *I am really having issues between Maclin and Cooks. One hand, Cooks does punt and/or KO duties (and could score one against Cle). Maclin is playing on turf. Floyd, I think I am keeping on. Hell, I am even having issues with starting Brown because of the weather. Ravens are pretty stingy at home.

    RB - Forte @ SF, Le'veon Bell @ Bal, Morris vs Jax, Ingram @ Cle, Joique Bell @ Car (2 starters)

    *J. Bell is out at Carolina. Like the Shanny offense, but damn, can Washington even score? Read that Helu took away passing downs from Morris. Le'Veon is at Baltimore. Need I say more? Forte is at SF. Ugh.

    Both Forte and L. Bell offer pass-catching options. I think Forte was targeted around 8-9 times in the pass game. Problem is they are playing IN SF. While Bowman is gone, they still have Patrick Willis. I believe they are using young LBs to help him. May start Forte.

    The only reason I am asking is that this week, I have to play a perfect game because the person I am going against has a pretty damned stout squad. I think my team is solid with Luck and Julius Thomas starting (also picked up Caleb Sturgis and dropped Dan Carpenter), but I truly am a little confused because of the possibilities at certain positions. Cooks>Maclin? Maclin>Cooks? Hell, Start Cooks, and Maclin>Brown, keep Floyd?? Ariens said yesterday I believe that he is not going to force the ball to Fitz, so maybe that's good for Floyd?

    Starting Hou defense again at Oakland.

    Need some good input soon. Pittsburgh plays tomorrow.

    Wr: brown Floyd maclin - why? Because cooks game vs Cleveland could be done by halftime.
    Rb: forte and L bell - why? Because they're must start in Ppr format. Bell isn't bad but like you said he's playing Carolina. Alfred Morris is an RB3 in Ppr IMO. He offers nothing in the passing game as usual. Forte is the 3rd or 4th best rb option available anywhere (he will catch 70 again this year) and is a must start irregardless of who he plays. Even if he gets 30 yards rushing there's a good chance he catches 4-6 passes/50ish yards and maybe a TD in there. Can't bench him.

    Thanks for the input. I kind of thought the same with Saints, that's why I was going to take a chance on Ingram. Hell, I was going to take a chance on both he and Cooks.

    This is my first year playing FF, so I am just, I dunno....I want to win. I drafted a team five or six years ago, but I didn't "play". Other than drafting a team and not even playing, I have zero experience.

    Now I have a little time to do this thing, I want to kick the league's ***!

    Terrance West is starting this week, he'd be my pick.

    I have to pick two WRs out of:

    Kelvin Benjamin
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Roddy White.

    I'm leaning towards Benjamin and Sanders with White playing on road. thoughts?

    I'm also starting Drew Brees, but wondering if Andy Dalton at home outscores Brees on road in Cleveland

    You two are deciding between Benjamin & White. Watch both of them outdo Sanders this week. :lol:

    If Benjamin doesn't start getting doubled routinely he could very well come close to having a Josh Gordon type season, especially with his buddy back at QB. The two of them form one of, if not the best backyard football duo in the league [like he had with Jameis Crablegs]. Cam scrambles and buys time; play breaks down; Cam tosses it into the vicinity of Benjamin. Long jump balls against single coverage. Lobs and fades in the endzone. There's nearly a season's worth of stats from that alone. I'm gonna try to get him in my other league if his owner happens to value him at a WR3 or even a low end WR2.

    Whites knee is fine. Hes playing. If youre that concerned shuffle him off for a better WR. Package some kind of 2-1 deal...

    Steve Smith with another solid week. 6 catches for 74 yards and a knat's butthole away from adding a TD.... or two TDs if you include the other 3 redzone targets.... or maybe a 3rd TD if he weren't face-masked from behind in the open field. Could've easily been an 8 catch, 80+ yard, 2+ TD night for him.

    So far through 2 games:
    Steve Smith: 25 targets, 13 catches, 189 yards, 1 TD.
    Torrey Smith: 10 targets, 4 catches, 60 yards, 0 TD.

    Kubiak has a history of feeding his preferred receiver..... and this season all the "experts" and pundits just assumed that guy would be Torrey Smith even though he's never established himself as that reliable, efficient, crisp-route-running type of receiver to entrust a heap of targets with as a go-to guy. He still seems like the type of receiver who is best served as a compliment to the offense rather than having it run through him.

    People are quick to forget Steve put up HOF numbers in Carolina [as recently as 2012 & '13] despite all eyes of secondaries typically being on him since he never had a Torrey Smith taking the top off defenses and commanding attention, despite having weak or erratic QB play for most of his career, and despite being in a Panthers' offense that literally attempted the fewest passes in the NFL since he entered the league. All the experts have recently advised us to STAY AWAY from Seattle receivers because their offense doesn't attempt enough passes [420 in 2013], yet here Steve Smith is- grabbing 78 passes for 1421 yards and 6 TDs in 2008 despite Carolina attempting 414 passes... and hauling in 103 catches for 1563 yards and 12 TDs in 2005 despite Carolina attempting 449. Even as recently as 2012 when Carolina attempted 490 passes and completed the 4th fewest in the league, Steve still grabbed 73 balls for 1174 yards and 4 TDs. Now he's in a Ravens offense that's attempted 619 and 560 passes the past 2 years, has Torrey drawing attention away from him, has arguably his best passing QB of his career, and really doesn't have a 3rd WR in the offense worthy of commanding many targets, especially not in Kubiak's system that would prefer to keep 2 TEs on the field, so what's to prevent him from posting an 85+ catch, 1200+ yards, 6+ TD season other than injury? That's conservative compared to his current pace of 104/1512/8.

    How do you guys rank these backs? Thinking of moving on from Sankey and need a backup since Moreno is down.

    Knile Davis
    Donald Brown
    Bobby Rainey

    Tough, although I'm guessing you will get about the same production from all 3, question is who will get the carries.

    Yeah Todd rub it in I should have accepted your Steve Smith trade on two separate occasions.

    So what kind of numbers do you guys think Welker puts up when he returns? Also can Gates keep up the pace? Obviously not like last week but he's put up back to back solid games fantasy wise.

    I really need to replace Tavon Austin if possible. Hoping Welker or Bowe break out. Welker has injury concerns and Im not sure Bowe gets the targets. Though I don't think either is terrible in a twelve team league with 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE and 2 WR/RB/TE. Could be worse off. Thinking of starting Gates as my second flex soon and hopefully Welker can step into my first flex.

    MCL sprain and rolled ankles are probably a 2-4 week injury each. SD will use Brown because he can take 20 carries a game. Knile Davis is more explosive. I tend to think Charles beats Mathews back so I got Brown-Davis-Rainey

    I'm worse. I drafted Steve Smith with my final pick in the draft instead of a kicker. then decided to keep Emmanuel Sanders and Kelvin Benjamin as my backups to Megatron and Roddy White, ended up cutting Steve Smith for a kicker who's not even on my team anymore. kicking myself

    all they have to do is win 2 games on the road and they have a good shot at the playoffs. they've never been a good road team.
