    Let's get the ball rolling:

    My roster currently:

    Kurt Warner (QB)
    Brett Favre (QB)
    Matt Forte (RB)
    Willie Parker (RB)
    Joseph Addai (RB)
    Anquan Boldin (WR)
    Donald Driver (WR)
    Derrick Mason (WR)
    TJ Houshmandzadeh (WR)
    Heath Miller (TE)
    Jason Witten (TE)
    Lawrence Tynes (K)
    Saints (DST)
    Broncos (DST)

    Not too please with my RBs or DSTs, trying to figure out what to do with them. Nobody in my league is trading though, so not much I can do to offload one of Warner or Favre for a better RB.

    Let's see everyone's rosters.

    QB Matt Schaub

    RB Matt Forte
    RB Chris Johnson
    RB Ahmad Bradshaw
    WR Reggie Wayne
    WR Donald Driver
    WR Terrell FORTHELOVEOFGODJUSTTRADEMEALREADY Owens
    WR Lance Moore
    WR Pierre Garcon
    WR Muhsin Muhammad
    TE Owen Daniels
    TE Brent Celek
    K David Akers
    DEF Giants

    1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF, no flex, standard scoring, 12 team head to head

    My RBs have been woefully disappointing with the exception of CJ's monster week 2, but I don't know who I should give up to get someone better. Now that Wayne and Driver are past their byes, my receiving core should be a little easier to pick. All I needed was >zero out of the Giants D this week to stay undefeated. Motherfuckers.

    Team#1- 12 team league, no PPR, currently 5-1 and in 1st:

    QB Matt Ryan
    RB Adrian Peterson
    RB/WR Thomas Jones
    WR Reggie Wayne
    WR Calvin Johnson
    TE Owen Daniels
    D/ST Falcons D
    K Jay Feely

    BE Braylon Edwards
    BE Jonathan Stweart
    BE Chester Taylor
    BE Steve Breaston
    BE Leon Washington
    BE Cadillac Williams
    BE Pierre Garcon
    BE Donnie Avery

    So far, I've been doing pretty well playing defensive matchups- I stuck gold the first week with the Eagles and a few weeks back with the 49ers. Other than that, I'm pretty confident that I can go deep in this league and possibly win for the first time.

    Team#2- 12 team league, no PPR, currently 4-1-1 and in 2nd:

    QB Matt Schaub
    RB LT
    RB/WR Ronnie Brown
    RB/WR Kevin Smith
    WR Steve Smith CAR
    WR Anquan Boldin
    TE Dallas Clark
    D/ST Falcons
    K Nate Kaeding

    BE Darron Sproles
    BE Ben Roethlisberger
    BE Tim Hightower
    BE Zach Miller
    BE Mario Manningham
    BE Steve Smith NYG
    BE Derrick Ward

    I've been really fortunate with the early trade I made where I received Ronnie Brown for Vincent Jackson. As of right now, I am the top point scorer (in both leagues actually), and would be in first except for a freak tie where all I needed was for Steve Smith CAR was to score ONE FRIGGIN point. I was also lucky enough to grab both Manningham and Smith NYG from the waivers early on. If I can just get some kind of production from Smith CAR, I think i have a solid, solid team.

    12 person league, .5 ppr, I'm 4-2 so far.

    QB: Matt Schaub
    RB: Chris Johnson, Ryan Grant
    Flex: Antonio Bryant/Nicks
    WR: Andre Johnson, Dwayne Bowe
    TE: Brent Celek
    D/ST: Jets
    K: Tynes

    Bench: Donald Brown, Jerome Harrison, Jamaal Charles
    Austin Collie, Anthony Gonzalez

    Not too upset with my team. In a 12 person league where everyone knows what they're doing, it's tough to get good waiver wire pickups. 2 weeks ago I traded Slaton and SimsWalker for Chris Johnson, and I still can't decide if it was a good trade or not. I really just didn't want 3 Houston Texans on my team, and Slaton was the weakest of the 3, seeing as Schaub and AJ are #1 at their respective positions. However, I definitely lost a solid flex player in SimsWalker. I'll probably dump the Jets D soon, especially with the loss of Jenkins, but they're playing the Jamarcuses this week so I'll let them ride 1 more.

    10 person league, No PPR, All TDs are 6 pts, but other than that pretty standard Yahoo scoring. We start 1 QB, 3RB, 3WR, 1 TE, K, Def.
    QB - Matt Ryan
    RBs - Forte, Portis, Lynch, Cadillac, McCoy, McFadden
    WR - Wayne, Santonio, Manningham, Royal, Massaquoi
    TE - Clark, Olsen
    K - Kaeding
    Def - Chicago
    I'm currently 2-4 sitting in 8th place. There have been several weeks where if I would've started one guy over another, I could've won. I'm looking to make trades, but even when I make big offers, they're are getting turned down. I think its because nearly everyone in my league is 4-2, 3-3, or 2-4, so no one is willing to make major changes yet. I'd appreciate any help I can get. Would it be worth trying to trade a RB for a WR, say Lynch for DeSean Jackson? I think I could manage to get Brian Westbrook, am I wrong in thinking he's an upgrade over Portis? Thanks for the help, I'm glad this thread is back.

    Team #1. 10 Team League, 0.5 PPR, Start 1 QB/3 WR/2 RB/1 TE/1 K/1 DEF, currently in 4th place (4-2)

    QB: Tom Brady, Joe Flacco
    WR: Calvin Johnson, DeSean Jackson, Derrick Mason, Mario Manningham, Lance Moore
    RB: Matt Forte, Ray Rice, Thomas Jones, Ahmad Bradshaw
    TE: Chris Cooley, Jermichael Finley
    K: Jay Keely
    DEF: Indy

    I think this team is decent enough to make the playoffs, but Forte is killing me.

    Team #2. 10 Team League, 1 PPR, Start 1 QB/3 WR/2 RB/1 TE/1 K/1 DEF, currently in 5th place (3-3)

    QB: Philip Rivers, Joe Flacco
    WR: Greg Jennings, Roddy White, Brandon Marshall, Percy Harvin, Derrick Mason, Mario Manningham
    RB: MJD, Marshawn Lynch, Knowshon Moreno, Laurence Maroney
    TE: Kellen Winslow, Todd Heap
    K: Jay Feely
    DEF: Indy

    I like this team a lot, except for the fact that I don't have a solid #2 back. I have too much depth in receivers. I'm thinking about dumping Jennings or Marshall.

    12 team Yahoo! standard set-up.

    Currently 6-0 in my money league. Bye weeks this week for Housh, Sims-Walker, Knowshon, and Royal. Waiver claims in for Maroney (dropping Morris), and Lance Moore (dropping Campbell). Thinking of starting Evans, Breaston, Fitz, and Maroney at my 3 WR and Flex spot during this bye week, any advice?

    QB: Phillip Rivers
    RB: Steve Slaton
    RB: Pierre Thomas
    WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Housh, Sims-Walker
    TE: Kellen Winslow
    R/W/T: Knowshon Moreno
    BN: Eddie Royal, Donald Brown, Lee Evans, Steve Breaston, Jason Campbell, Sammy Morris

    In my other league I am 2-4 despite being second in points.

    QB: Jay Cutler
    RB: Deangelo Williams
    RB: Ronnie Brown
    WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Greg Jennings, Kevin Walter
    TE: Zach Miller
    BN: Ray fucking Rice, Mike Wallace, Donald Brown, Lesean McCoy, Austin Collie, Laurence Maroney

    Do I start Collie vs STL or Walter vs SF? I need to upgrade my WR3, any advice on who to try and trade?

    Thanks

    I just noticed that both Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson are available on the waiver wire. I already have Lance Moore, but I'm not sold on which one is the best option at WR3 given the way Brees spreads the ball around. Anyone with a decent amount of knowledge of the Saints offense have a suggestion?

    I have:

    Tom Brady
    Adrian Peterson
    Ray Rice
    Reggie Wayne
    Wes Welker
    Bernard Berrian
    Tony Gonzalez

    Jeff Reed

    Green Bay DEF

    Bench:
    Ryan Grant
    Julius Jones (I gotta drop that fuck for a WR)
    Nate Washington
    Torry Holt
    Matt Ryan
    NO DEF (Just because I wasn't sure if I should go with GB or them... I picked GB, lucky guess)

    Needless to say, I had a very good week this weekend with Brady and Welker. I'm 5 - 1 overall, one week Brady just sucked fucking ass (vs. the Giants).

    12 team league, standard yahoo scoring except passing touchdowns count for 6 points.

    Should I start Eli Manning or Kurt Warner?

    Both have done well for me (picking starters based on matchups) and I have no idea who to play this week.
    Thanks in advance

    I have been proposed as trades in a .5 PPR league, the rest of my roster is a few posts up:

    I get Steve Smith (NYG) for Ronnie Brown

    or

    I get Houshmanzadeh for Frank Gore

    Thoughts?

    If you're not desperate for WR help, I probably wouldn't bite on either trade. Though I haven't played in a PPR league in years, so am probably not sure how much more to value WRs.

    I'm in two leagues:
    Dynasty League: 10 Team Auction
    QB: Peyton Manning
    RB: Frank Gore
    RB: Pierre Thomas
    WR: Randy Moss
    WR: Marques Colston
    WR: Hakeem Nicks
    TE: Kellen Winslow
    Defense: Baltimore

    Bench: Rivers, D. Mason, Moreno, McGahee, V. Davis, Hightower, Crabtree, G. Coffee

    12 Team Snake
    QB: Kurt Warner
    RB: Michael Turner
    RB/WR: Mike Sims-Walker
    WR: Anquan Boldin
    WR: Vincent Jackson
    WR/TE: Santonio Holmes
    TE: Tony Gonzalez
    DP: Patrick Willis
    DP: Mario Williams
    Defense: Dallas

    Bench: Nicks, Garcon, F. Jones, Beanie Wells, Norwood, T. Edwards, Sproles, A. Caldwell

    Am 5-1 in the Dynasty Auction league, which has been running for over 5 years now.

    Am 4-2 in the other league. Was hoping Felix Jones or Beanie would break out, but since they haven't, have been able to fill my RB/WR flex spot with Sims-Walker and Nicks, who're both looking very solid.

    We don't smoke that shit in the SFC
    Standard Yahoo scoring league:

    Carson Palmer (v. Chicago) or Mark Sanchez (v. Oakland)? I can't determine if the Sanchez's latest suckiness will be outweighed by Oakland's general suckiness.

    For WR, I can start 3: Leaning towards Randy Moss (v. TB), Percy Harvin (v. Pitt), and Braylon Edwards (v. Oak). But I could take out Percy Harvin if the injury is still nagging, particularly against Pitt and put in either P. Crayton (v. Atl), D. Hester (v. Cincy), Crabtree (v. Houston), or Chris Chambers (v. KC). God, my WR bench is shit.

    And the bright spot on my roster, for RB (can only have two): Thomas Jones (v. Oakland), LDT (v. KC) or Ronnie Brown (V. NO). Thinking I have to favor those Oakland and KC matchups.

    Some guy in my league is interested in trading for one of my receivers. At this point I'm 5-1 in an 8 man league which makes me mainly concerned about the playoffs, so week 15 and 16 are the most important to me. I see my main weakness as RBs but am too emotionally attached to all three to know what to do. Here are both out rosters minus 7 IDPs (if we do trade I'll probably take 1 of his better ones just cause).

    .25 PPR; start 1QB 3WR 2RB 1TE; Bench is fixed
    ME ......................... HIM
    QB M. Shaub ........... D. Brees
    QB C. Palmer ........... K. Warner
    WR R. White ............ G. Jennings
    WR R. Moss ............. M. Manningham
    WR S. Smith (NYG) ... V. Jackson
    WR B. Marshall ......... J. Knox
    WR B. Edwards ........ S. Breaston
    RB M. Forte ............. F. Gore
    RB C. Portis ............. M. J-D
    RB K. Smith ............. T. Jones
    TE T. Gonzalez ........ K. Winslow
    TE O. Daniels ........... C. Cooley

    I'm thinking wait and see because all my guys have potential to increase in value, but that thought process had me keep McGahee pretty much all of last season. Also, this guy has a good enough team to challenge me in the playoffs if he gets in (2-4 right now).

    I doubt anyone would suggest it but I'm morally opposed to trading for T. Jones because I dropped him before week 1 for K. Smith.

    QB - Aaron Rodgers (I'm incredibly excited for the Packers - Browns game this weekend, for obvious reasons.)
    RB - Pierre Thomas
    RB - Cedric Benson
    WR - Larry FItzgerald
    WR - Donald Driver
    WR - Steve Smith (the NYG version - my favorite pickup of the year so far)
    TE - Brent Celek
    Def/ST - New York Giants

    BENCH
    QB - Joe Flacco
    WR - Bernard Berrian
    WR - Santana Moss
    RB - Frank Gore
    RB - Cadillac Williams
    TE - Vernon Davis
    DEF - Broncos (Somehow they're still the #1 defense. The opposing team had Kyle Orton as their starter last week. I started the Broncos defense. I lost by three points.)

    Anybody have thoughts on Matt Ryan (@Dallas) vs. Brett Favre (@Pittsburgh)? Seems like one of them has a good game each week, but I've been struggling to pick the right guy.

    Matt Ryan and this isn't even close. Especially with the steelers getting Polamalu back. As for the other match up, I would go with Palmer. He's been much more consistent and Chicago's biggest weakness is their pass defense. As bad as Oakland sucks they've actually been decent against the pass. Last year they were much better than Chicago.

    Two quick questions. Who would you guys start:

    1.) Hakeem Nicks (Vs. ARI) or Braylon Edwards (@ OAK)

    2.) Matt Schaub (Vs. SF) or Philip Rivers (@KC)

    it's a ten team H2H league, 1 PPR, any suggestions would help. Thanks
