I've got Shady too, and I haven't gotten the right offer, nor have I been actively shopping him. Philly really needs to diversify their offense, they're looking totally stale right now. I'm waiting for the inevitable injury or benching that's coming as far as Vick goes, because things can't continue the way they have been. What game was it that Vick had all those fumbles? That one at the goal line in particular. I was screaming at the TV, and not just because Shady's on my fantasy team. You have one of the best backs in football, use him!

Anyway, for some advice. My two quarterbacks are Roethlisberger and RG3, who are facing each other this week. Any recommendations on who to play? I've got Pitt's D, and I can say firsthand that they're way too decimated with injuries to really put up a huge front, so I'm leaning on RG3. But I've also seen the Redskins' secondary too...looking pretty awful themselves. My two Defenses are Pitt and StL, and with St. Louis playing my Patriots this week, no way they're getting the nod. And I'm not about to play RG3 and Pitt's D together, so I'm thinking of picking up Detroit's (FA wire is slim ) D to play against Seattle. Sound like decent ideas?

I'd give the slight nod to RG3. His ceiling is way higher than Big Ben and even if he has an 'off' game, he could put up similar numbers to Ben. Lions D aren't a bad play this week, they held Chicago to 13 points last week and have been looking better in the secondary the last two weeks.

Damn I have a WR overload, but I can't find anyone to make a deal. I have Nicks/Miles/Roddy/Torrey/J. Gordon so two are going to have to sit on my bench each week

Which 2 of 4 should I start?

Ridley (at Rams)
McGahee (vs Saints)
Felix Jones (vs Giants)
Dwayne Bowe (vs Chiefs)

I'm leaning towards McGahee and Bowe, but I'm not 100% sure

And which of these QB's should I start?

Alex Smith (at Cardinals)
Hasselbeck (at Colts)
Weeden (vs Chargers)

Leaning towards Weeden or Hasselbeck but, again, not 100% sure.

You're definitely starting McGahee. The other player you start depends on who you are playing against in your league.

If the guy is one of the better teams in the league, continually putting up a good amount of points, or if his players have easy matchups, then I would suggest starting Ridley for upside.

If the guy you're going up against has byes this week, has players injured, or simply just doesn't have any good matchups this week, then I would start Bowe and be grateful if he got me 7-10 fantasy points.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. What about the QBs? I already have Alex Smith on my team, but I don't feel comfortable starting him against the Cardinals. Hasselbeck has the Colts and Weeden has been pretty good the last couple of weeks and he's playing the Chargers.

I'm probably leaning towards Weeden.

Weeden no doubt. Fuck Alex Smith.

Had to get rid of Vernon because I couldn't have Smith's incompetence weighing me down at the TE position.

I didn't like the deal at first, but it's growing on me.

Vernon/Alfy for Tony G/Leshoure.

I would usually never advise for someone to sit Legatron, but Garrett Hartley and the Saints have an intriguing matchup with the Broncos this week.

Something's gotta give with the NO offense, and I say this being a Brees/Colston owner in one of my biggest money leagues. It seems like every time they get in the RZ they are coming out with 7 points.

That's a trend I don't see continuing this week against Denver, which means Hartley will have a crack at some FGs.

I would personally never sit Young GZ though. Hell, I might even hold onto him during his bye week, roster space permitted of course.

I got screwed by TNF this week. My TE's on one of my teams are Jimmy Graham and Kyle Rudolph. Because I was unsure if Graham was playing on Sunday, I had to play Rudolph, of course he gave me nearly nothing. His second horrible week in a row.

TE: Miller or gamble on Graham?
Flex: Sproles/Maclin or gamble on Bradshaw?



or should I sit Steve Smith? He hasn't been doing much lately and they're playing Chicago.
