    So who’s the waiver wire star this week? Eddie Royal looks good tonight. Sea WR Baldwin also.

    • Muntradamus September 9, 2013   Reply →

      You heard it here first.

      Willis McGahee

      • C Spit September 9, 2013   Reply →

        I see. Will his signing make Wilson irrevelant?

      • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

        I managed to pick him up Sunday night on a hunch. He wasn’t even on waivers because he’s a league free agent. Do you think he’ll make an impact?

      • MDE September 10, 2013   Reply →

        Willis was passed over for Jacobs. Man, What you talking about Willis? Brandon Jacobs is a turd.

        • Jason September 10, 2013   Reply →

          Brandon Jacobs is more familiar with blocking schemes, which David Wilson is poor at. He’s there for more of a mentor role than someone who will take a valuable chunk of carries away. If anything the signing of BJ shows that they still want to give David Wilson every opportunity to succeed.

    Julius Thomas will be hot on the waiver wire this week if he’s available.

    Is it just me, or did the waiver wire article come out on Monday nights last season after MNF?

  • max September 9, 2013   Reply →

    Wilson and ridley killed me…any chance they regain a feature role?

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Well I seen Vereen needs surgery and should be out a few weeks at least, so Ridley will get a boost from that, Wilson on the other hand I’m not so sure have to wait on munt for that, but if they get McGhee I have to believe they will split time

      Whoever the Giants sign this week. Might be McGahee.

    • Beastofthebay September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I’ve been a fan of Joique Bell since last year but probably doesn’t solve your RB issues if you need a starter immediately. Keep your eye on Jonathan Stewart to help you out later in the year when he returns, and check the status of Le’veon Bell for a possible early return

    Also, do I keep or drop Montee ball and/or Chris Ivory?

    • T-dog September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Ii would keep ball, my question is should I trade away Julius Thomas for desean jackson, my team
      Qb eli,rivers
      Rb trent, forte, bush, ball
      Wr Moore d, Austin, Steve smith, k wright, edelman
      Te cook, j Thomas, gronk

      • markwaynewolf September 11, 2013   Reply →

        I say do it. You need depth at the WR spot and Jared Cook will get you by until Gronk is back and the Pats need him bad. You could sell high on Julius Thomas right now actually and see what the best you could get is.

      • chadmonkey September 11, 2013   Reply →

        Yes, if you can get Desean, I call that a great trade. Cook will hold you over until Gronk gets back.

  • markwaynewolf September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Also, should I keep or drop Montee Ball and/or Chris Ivory?

    • Gridiron Samurai September 10, 2013   Reply →

      @markwaynewolf Whatever you do, Do NOT drop Montee Ball. As for Chris Ivory, personally I do not like any Jets players at the moment. However, I would hold onto him until they solidify his role, unless you NEED to upgrade a position from the waivers. For instance if you absolutely need a TE, and Julius Thomas is available, then I would drop Chris Ivory for Julius Thomas. What does your current team look like?

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      yea ball should turn things around soon. I agree there wont be much value in any jets player until their offense turns around

      • markwaynewolf September 11, 2013   Reply →

        my team looks like this:

        Carson Palmer/ Andy Dalton
        Doug Martin/ Knowshon(starting) Montee Ball/Chris Ivory/ Daniel Thomas
        Dez Bryant/Mike Williams/Wes Welker(starting) Rod Streater/ Michael Floyd
        Jimmy Graham/ Jared Cook
        Bears DST
        Dan Bailey

  • BIGPIMPSHADY September 10, 2013   Reply →

    I know Wes Welker in considered a GOD here on this site and thats why i drafted him in a bunch of my leagues, but someone has offered me Reggie Wayne for him in one of my leagues. This next week is lookin good for Welker and not so hot for Wayne, but as far as the rest of the year goes im thinkin Wayne could very well outscore Welker fantasy wise. Lookin for input on the deal. Wayne is unquestionably the #1 in Indy and Welker is gonna be the 2nd or 4th option in Denver. I shud take Wayne, right?

    • timewasted87 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      In PPR, I think Welker is better even with the other targets taking the TDs. There might be more of a split in Denver, but Welker plays in more snaps than Wayne. I think the biggest thing is just the Denver offense as a whole is better giving Welker more opportunities. Just my thoughts for a PPR league.

    • Santee Cooper September 10, 2013   Reply →

      This feels like an apples for apples trade. Both guys ply their trades by getting lots of looks, and TD’s are their bonuses. You can also make the argument that teams will find it easier to single Wayne out of a game plan, where Welker will be involved all of the time due to the large number of receiving weapons the Broncos have. If it were me, I would go with my gut. And that would be the guy that I drafted in the first place. Actually, what I would probably do is look at what the other guy had, then counter offer him. See if I can’t get value somewhere else.

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Yea I agree that Welker has more upside. Wayne will get thrown too a lot since he is Lucks fav target. But welker could get 10+ rec a game

  • mknox4354 September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Got offered Cj Spiller/Eric Decker for Frank Gore/Roddy White. I dont really want to give up Roddy but Spiller does sound intriguing. My other wrs are Bowe/Jackson/Austin/Thompkins

    • mitch_lp640 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I’d do it in a second cus of Spiller’s ridiculous upside. Keep in mind decker won’t really ever be a better play over your other wr’s so he shouldn’t be considered a factor, but yeah that owner is scared so DO IT, LIKE RIGHT NOW!

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Is that miles Austin or tavon Austin?

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Spiller is a beast, but Jackson is just as beastly so I could see that hurting spiller. Though White has a much bigger upside in my opinion over Decker. Peyton has a lot of targets that are better then decker. I’d stay put.

    • max September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I’d do it, I love the upside of Spiller, and think this is the classic OVERREACTION offer…Frank is solid and he is consistent, but as a die hard niner fan Ive seen his ypc and catches go down in recent years. Not saying he wont be effective but Harbaugh likes to give Kendall Hunter carries as well, and I just think Spiller has the much high upside. Spiller will produce it just didnt happen last week.. Look at spillers yards last year and his YPC, it was thru the roof. He will get it…as for Decker and White, Id be a lil worried bout whites injury, and feel comfortable bout Decker rebounding, he is a big body red zone targets will be consistent

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Id stay put. Fred Jackson still is looking good and will likely take carries from Spiller and White has a lot of upside over Decker. Both under performed week 1 but with all the targets Peyton has Id rather have white

    • jd September 10, 2013   Reply →

      i would stay put. decker is not going to get close to 13 tds again with welker and the emergence of julius thomas so its really just spiller for gore/white in my mind

  • mitch_lp640 September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Pick up Jordan Cameron and drop Jared Cook?

    • AdviceSeeker September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I think Cook will be the focal pt of this offense [like munt said]. He did extremely well {TE-1 status] against a Cardinals Defense that is underrated. Once, Josh Gordon comes back though, I think Jordan Cameron value goes down b/c all the Brown’s receivers have stone hands at the moment.

      i’d stay w/ cook, or at least keep cameron on my bench.

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Gotta agree with adviceseeker, I would stick with cook and if you have an extra roster spot then you could hold onto Cameron and see how that things play out on that offense, Trent only had 13 carries last week and i don’t expect we see a lot more of that, which means less touches for all their receivers

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Keep Jared Cook. He’s very tough to defend and will be Sam Bradford’s target over and over. Cameron is a good pickup in 2 TE leagues.

  • munho September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Looking for help at DEF this week. Going to drop Tampa Bay and pick up either Baltimore or Carolina? I like Baltimore because the Browns don’t have much offense…thoughts? Maybe another I’m overlooking?

    • Jared September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I was thinking of picking up oakland DST just based on the fact that the jags are horrible

      • wetwilly2002 September 10, 2013   Reply →

        Chad Henne is starting next week so I wouldn’t expect the same as last week. Honestly Henne needs to remain the starter for that team. Gabert is worst then Sanchez.

      • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

        depending on ur dst that wouldn’t be a bad move

    • wetwilly2002 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Kansas City Defense is another good option they have a good match up against QBs that love to throw ints Dallas, Philly, NY Giants. Plus KC has always been tough at home to beat. But Carolina is a nice pick and Beast Dome on BeastCast Radio stated them to be a sleeper unit.

    • BlackGold September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Take a look at Philly D. With San Diego coming across the country for an early game after a letdown… I wouldn’t be surprised if Rivers turns it over a good 15 times. And Philly D looked much improved at times last night.

    • johnny utah September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I dropped Tampa earlier today for Dallas. Considered grabbing Carolina, but am thinking I will just play the matchups week to week.

      Alex Smith interception fest against Cowboys this weekend, that’s what I’m calling.

      Baltimore could have trouble stopping Trent, but they might come out killing after Week 1’s embarassing effort. If you are in it for the long haul, take Panthers over Tampa.

  • andrao September 10, 2013   Reply →

    I like those two. Same situation as you, I think I am rolling with Carolina. Manuel is a rookie, Panthers D is much much improved..looking for them to beast this week.

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I am in the same situation also, I know munt likes that buffalo offense with Manuel at the helm, so I’m just going to wait on munt before I make any moves

  • FLbeastFAN September 10, 2013   Reply →

    DO NOT DROP MONTEE BALL!! You saw last year that the running game is key to keep Peyton fresh and his play-action effective. As Muntradamus mentioned, Moreno can be tackled by a leaf blowing in the wind and Hillman is too small to be a third down pass protector and he fumbles. Trust Muntradamus, as young Montee gets more and more involved in practice he will eventually be the starter in an offense that requires a running back threat to keep the passing attack at full force. Need more convincing? Look at John Fox’s offenses through the years.

  • Caleb September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Should I start Eddie Lacy or Steven Jackson in week 2?

    Also should I start Brady or Luck in Week 2?

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Id say Jackson and Brady. Luck has better matchup but brady is proven to put up big numbers and the Pats hate the Jets.

    • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

      s jax and brady

  • Beastofthebay September 10, 2013   Reply →

    I like my squad but am thinking about getting active on the waiver wire (4’th priority currently). 10 team PPR league (-1pt for QB incompletions). Joique bell and Julian Edelman are both available among others. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 1 TE, 2 WR, 2 RB/WR//TE, K, DST.

    My team:
    QB: stafford
    RB: S-Jax, T. Richardson, MJD, Demarco, Ball, Helu, Gio Bernard
    WR: boldin, Marshall, m. Austin, j. Jones, J. Gordon
    TE: A. Gates
    K: Gostkowski
    DST:NE

    Any advice on dead weight to drop to pick up some waiver wire targets, or potential trade packages?

    Thanks Beast Nation!

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      You could go for Bell. Not sure I would start him over your other options right now. If detroit continues to use Bell and Bush like that did he will be relevant.

      • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

        Thanks UK. Who would you drop for bell? Helu, Bernard, or James Jones?

      • Beastofthebay September 10, 2013   Reply →

        Thanks UK. Would you drop Helu, Gio, jones or Gordon for either Joique or Edelman? Any other WR pickups I should consider?

  • Alphadawg September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Pick 2: MJD Demarco Murray or Desean. Normally would go with the rbs but Desean looks so good in the Philly offense.

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      hard to continually roll w MJD bc the jags are so terrible. so id roll w Murray and Desean

      • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

        d mur for sure! and id roll with mjd this week over djax for 3 reasons. 1: he’s a rb guaranteed touches. 2: he’s playing the raiders which means they might be in the game for the most part. 3: the main reason, chad henne is their Qb this week who is way better than gabbert which will make the defense unable to fully focus their attention on stopping MJD.

  • C Spit September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Damn is amendola out thurs? I’m in trouble. Only got Rueben Randle and Denarius Moore at WR.

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      that was the early reports, but i dont think its official, never really know the truth if belicheck is involved, is edelman on the wire in your league, if ammendola is out i would expect edelman to get a TON of targets

      • C Spit September 10, 2013   Reply →

        I’m in a 16 team league, Edelman is gone. I should be good though, I got Julius Thomas at flex

          who are your other top option?

  • ewu118 September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Have #3 Waiver in a 12 league. Edelman still on waiver. Planning to start Jordy and Mike Williams, and have Vincent Brown on bench. Feeling shaky on Mike and Vincent, but not sure if it’s worth using my high waiver pick on Edelman… seems like Amendola will be out in week 2

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I think I would use the waiver, I read that amendola may even miss more time then just week 2, but with belicheck you never really know, I am sure munt waiver wire article will clear thing up for all of us.

    • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

      u only need edleman for this 1 week bcuz he’s like the only option for brady. If he beasts 2 weeks in a row u can trade him and get value out of him, if not just drop him no big deal it’s a long season

  • Guerrero September 10, 2013   Reply →

    What do you guys think :
    DeSean Jackson and Eddie Lacy For Alfred Morris.

    My Receivers other WR are; Amendola, H.Nicks, Miles Austin and B.Hartline.. Fear of being weak at WR if I make this trade.

    • Timewasted87 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      How many WR slots can you play and is there a flex? You have 3 strong WR without Jackson. How’s your RB core and do you need another strong RB? I see Morris as getting a steady 12-15 pts a week and not more.

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Think that trade isn’t good for you. I know Munt didnt rank Morris very high at all. Jackson will get a lot of looks with the Eagles revamped offense. Also the Packers passing game will open up a lot of opportunities for Lacy. Who are your RBs

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Id stay put. Munt didnt have Morris ranked very high and Jackson should do well w the Eagles new offense. Plus the packers pass game should open up stuff for lacy

    • bukeye420 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Who are your RBs?

        My other running backs are McCoy, Ridley, and Bradshaw (also have J.Stewart on IR)

    • SupaGalacticLuva September 10, 2013   Reply →

      We need to see your other RB’s. Your WR’s minus DeSean are great with Amendola, Nicks, and Miles. I’d say the trade is worth consideration pending your RB list.

      I’d say Bolden. Munt was really high on him last year, his prediction may yet come true.

    • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

      pats rbs will be incosistent all year long. If u have to own one though ridley would be the man but expect a couple dud weeks from him.

    • markwaynewolf September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Stick with Ridley, espcially now that Vereen has to have surgery and new reports suggest he is out until week 11.

  • max September 10, 2013   Reply →

    I got killed with Ridley and Wilson this week. Thankfully, Vereen got hurt lol, and the Giants brought in Brandon Jacobs off the street (he wont be a threat, Im hoping)…..should I stay put with these backs or find a trade? My top 2 wr are Garcon and Desean, I could use a another solid WR…also what RBs could I go with? Wilson for Ball? Ridley for Ball? Or lamar miller?

    • wetwilly2002 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Ridley for Ball now and when Wilson gets a boom week then you could possibly trade him for ball.

    • Cnop September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Ridley is going to be the ONLY non Edelman option in NE until Gronk or Amendola get back.
      With no Vereen behind him for 10 weeks he should do well

    • jd September 10, 2013   Reply →

      personally im thinking wilson is a bust overall but (and this might be too greedy) i would wait until he breaks one off before cashing out

      Thanks for posting the heads up with Jacobs. I’ve been watching McGahee and he is a much better RB. Looked explosive for Denver last season and averaged 4+ yards per carry. Not sure what to make of Jacobs.

      I don’t think youll be able to get MJD and Jones for Darryl Rich and Edelman. It is worth a shot though. I would go with Forte for Darryl Rich and Edelman, and if you can pick up Forte’s backup Bush that would be ideal.

      Richardson and edelman for Matt forte for sure…especially if u in a ppr. Forte got goal line carries which he used to lose to Bush

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I wouldnt lose Cruz. He ia a beast. If you could do richarson and edelman for Forte I feel thats a steal. Getting Jones and MJD for Richardson and Edelman is also a good trade for you.

    There is nothing to make of Jacobs his a good 3rd down back and a good goal line carry unit other then that he is a RB3 on the depth charts for the Giants. Giants just needed more depth at running back.

      If roddy is hurt, why not? Edelman should be the man until amendola or gronk play. ESP if ppr leAgue. Of course, Edelman is a concussion waiting to happen too.

      i agree, edelman is the best WW. He might be injury prone, but he had a foot + hand injury. I might give him maybe 1 more year til he’s actually “injury prone”

      who would u be giving up for edelman? what about starting RBs?

          • wannaBEast September 10, 2013  

            I like hankerson too..he had some good games last year (plus last night!), I think hes worth saving a waiver wire pickup for later in the season..plus roddy hopefully only needs 1-2 more weeks for that damn ankle

    Should Montee be benched for hartline or randle at my flex? Ppr league. Is hartline an every-week start or higher than m Williams?

    • AdviceSeeker September 10, 2013   Reply →

      i’d play matchups. Mike Williams has improved from last year, if only Josh Freeman was better, the Bucs WRs would be amazing. Hartline can bust thru 1v1 coverage and mike wallace will always draw the DBL team b/c of how fast he is.

      I’d bench montee b/c its a dice-roll, but he does have a good matchup with a weak giants run D [look at demarco, and their LBs are trash now], but he’s not the lead back.

      i’d go matchups now. I don’t know who the dolphins are playing, but i’d go miek williams. Saints Defense is trash, and the BUCs will have to throw if NO starts building its momentum.

    • Cnop September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Hartline will for sure get the most targets but M Williams TDs make them dance got some good options there for this week.

    • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

      i mean hartline and m williams are gonna be hit or miss every week. montee on the other hand is gonna get his carries, but the thing is he gets his carries in the redzone and there’s not a better team in the league at getting the ball down the field. and he;ll get carries when trying to run clock when they have a good league. And yet again the broncos will be getting big leads more than anyone this year so montee should have his opportunities for sure.

    Jordan Cameron(Bye 6) is available and I was wondering if I should try to grab him for Jimmy’s(Bye 7) Bye or Jimmy’s you never know injury? If so should I drop a backup like Bryce or a guy like Kenbrell since I’m stacked at WR?

      Hold onto Bryce as a handcuff to Shady. Drop Kembrell and get Cameron.

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I also like holding on to Bryce brown, but I would see if you could work a deal with cam and one of your receivers for a upgrade at wideout or maybe even cam and Reggie, but you would have to get a top 5 back for a deal like that

    • SupaGalacticLuva September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I think he’s(Edelman) worthy of a roster spot, however I wouldn’t start him over Nicks or Welker… Jury’s out on Austin at the moment.

    • Anonymous September 10, 2013   Reply →

      You could start Edelman over any of the 3 for a week or two but when Gronk gets back i would say no…I took a gamble and did not go with Amendola this year as i believe he is too injury prone. if you can get Edelman and if nothing else stash him on your bench for later trade bait or untill Amendola goes back on the IR again

    • TWHAT19 September 10, 2013   Reply →

      If you can get Edelman i would…i took a gamble and did not go with Amendola this year due to he is injury prone..already starting to pay off..if nothing else you can use Edelman as trade bait later or keep..i just dont think Amendola will last the year…

      bro idk ur pretty stacked already at Wr i don’t think you need to waste your waiver wire spot for a reciever when you already have 3 studs at the position…edleman isn’t gonna be a long term pickup anywhere

      I don’t think I would start him this week, or overpay for him, but if you can get him cheap, I would make that move

      Consider trading Vick and Britt for either Eli or Romo and a WR upgrade

      Cameron will continue to be a decent flex, especially when Gordon gets back on the field

      play the matchups. Marlon Brown for Baltimore is probably teh WR2; hankerson was decent only due to the Eagles blowing them out [remember that teams in garbage time will throw to whoever is open] or go for harry douglas. You can go for edelman to handcuff amendola, but that blows a roster spot for someone else you might want.

    need advice…just got a trade offer – Eli for Boldin…my qb’s right now are Freeman and Manuel…i went for rb’s and Gronk first 5 rounds of my draft thinking Romo or Eli or Stafford may have been available…which they wasnt…guys picking 2 qb’s by 6th round?? anyways what’s your thoughts on the trade offer? should i give up Boldin for Eli?

    • Cnop September 10, 2013   Reply →

      If you went RBRBRBRB Gronk odds are you are a bit thin at WR.
      Really matters what else you have for WRs to see if that is worth parting with Boldin for.

      • TWHAT19 September 10, 2013   Reply →

        Other than Boldin I have Jordy Nelson, Miles Austin, Britt, and Stevie Johnson at WR…RB’s are Lynch, Jackson, Murray, and Ball..

        • AdviceSeeker September 10, 2013   Reply →

          thats a toss up. If its a 2-QB league, then no. If not, I’d seriously consider looking at the schedules of you’re 3 QBs and figure out who has the easiest ones. You’re RB depth is great and I think your starting WRs are good, but lacking depth. Boldin adds to your team, but playing the QB matchups might be difficult.

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Id say take that easily. Top WR, how would that not be a steal for you. Could easily play the waiver for QBs

    • swagg September 10, 2013   Reply →

      i would not advise you take that trade. just bcuz boldin put up 200 yards does’t mean his fantasy value is now equal to megatons. I would keep the safe QB so you wont have weeks where the Qb position could ruin your whole week by their performance alone.

    • ukbsktbll September 10, 2013   Reply →

      Sorry misread that. If you have Boldin I would not trade him for Eli. If its the other way around I would trade away Eli for boldin. Don’t look too hard at Eli’s week 1 numbers. That was mainly because they were down by a lot. I think you could usually find a quality QB on the waiver if needed.

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I would drop Manuel for Pryor and try to stream QB at least for now

    Trade Chris Ivory and Jared Cook for Montee Ball and Antonio Gates or Tyler Eifert?

    • Santee Cooper September 10, 2013   Reply →

      I would say yes. Although is Cook your best TE? Probably should see what your team looks like (and the scoring system, etc.) before giving a definitive. But just from your sentence, I would say yes. (Either TE, really. Gates & Eifert are a wash, week to week.)

    • timewasted87 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I would do the Trade for Montee Ball and Antonio Gates. You’re really trading for Ball and we’re hoping he has a big year!

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Make that trade for ball and gates, munt has him ranked very high this year and ivory is garbage

  • Santee Cooper September 10, 2013   Reply →

    Gents,
    Had a good listen through on last week’s Beastcast. Good stuff, there. So, bearing that in mind, I traded Eli & Julius Thomas for Cam Newton. (Figure outside the 49ers, that will be the toughest D he faces all year.) As I drafted Gronk, now I’m in need of a new TE for this week. I’m in a 14 team PPR league, and these are currently (IMO) my best options: Dallas Clark, Kellen Winslow, Scott Chandler, Charles Clay.

    Does this seem to be the correct order?

    • RogHog September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Bad Trade, just my opinion. If I were left with those, my order: Dallas clark (short term), K Winslow, Clay, Chandler. Would NOT have done that trade, but with whats left…

    • ukbsktbll September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Definitely have clark as #1 he had quite a few targets from Flacco. Winslow as your 2nd is right the other two I would only play with a good matchup.

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Yea, Clark is your best option

      so everyone to the left of your (starting) comment I would start. Along with Palmer, Graham Bears and Bailey. But i’d keep a close eye on the Denver running game to decide who to start.

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

    Despite Henne announced as starter Cecil Shorts was just dropped to waivers this morning. Yes, I just about swallowed my Pop Tart.

    My team:
    QB- Stafford, Eli Manning
    RB- Charles, Forte, M.Bush
    WR- Welker, Nicks, Amendola, Boldin, L.Moore, Edelman (off waivers this am for Amendola injury insurance), J. Gordon
    TE – Julius Thomas, Gronk

    Standard scoring. Start QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/FLEX/TE. The FLEX position can be RB/WR/TE.

    1) Who would you drop, if anyone to place claim on Cecil?
    2) If the claim goes thru, would Cecil (vs Oak) crack my starting lineup this week?

    The Beastdome rulez!

    • johnny utah September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I would drop Edelman and pick up Cecil. You get Commissioner Gordon back next week, and you are stacked at WR. I would also consider trading J Thomas for an RB upgrade.

      Your flex this week would be a toss up between Lance Moore and Shorts, assuming that Amendola is out for 100%.

    • jd September 11, 2013   Reply →

      i would drop bush. everyone is freaking out about him not getting the goal line carry sunday, so if you regret it he should still be available next week. i hope edelman has another good week. i also agree w/ johnny –you need to package some of those receivers/j thomas together for an rb1.5

  • johnny utah September 11, 2013   Reply →

    I’m in a 12 team standard league. QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/WR/TE/FLEX/K/DEF
    I have Stafford and Freeman at QB
    Charles, Murray, R. Bush, Ball, and M. Bush at RB
    Nicks, Lance Moore, J Gordon, B Hartline at WR
    JT and Fred Davis at TE

    Trade being proposed is Stafford and Murray for Kaepernick and Desean Jackson. I don’t like it, but am tempted to counter with Stafford and Reggie for Kaep and Megatron. Thoughts??

    • Snowman September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I like the Staff and Murray for Kaep and Desean Jackson trade. Kaep can win you a week by himself. That Eagles offensive is going to DEMOLISH San Diego. Should be a huge week for Desean.

      That other trade isn’t gonna work… He won’t give you MEGATRON… Unless he is REALLY hurting @ RB

  • Snowman September 11, 2013   Reply →

    It’s week 2 guys. Don’t panic!!! Hold off on trading those high draft picks… How many RBs ran for 100yards week 1?? 2 or 3 I think.

    Ridley or Julies Thomas @ flex??
    .5 PPR

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I think Ridley is the safer play and he has good upside, NE doesn’t really have a choice but Ridley, and once they have the game in a hand I gotta expect a heavy dose of Ridley. Not sure about boldens status though. If he is not playing I think it’s a no brainer, if he does then it’s closer, but I think I still go ridley

    • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      The addage has always been start RBs over WRs when considering your flex position. I would start Richardson, Murray, and S. Jax. That leaves you with 2 WRs spots. Welker and D. Jax looks to be more explosive right now. I know Austin did great too, but I would have to sit him this week.

    My bench is comprised of: C. Ivory, Vick Ballard, Brandon Myers, Bradford, Pierre Thomas, G. Tate, & Jackie Battle (just pick up cuz needed to fill a spot)
    ***Someone proposed me a trade: I give up Roddy for Knowshon Moreno…I feel like I need a stronger receiving option tho.
    —>I have a few options on the wire that are available to pick up now…Hartline, Malcom and MichaelFloyd, E. Royal, Vincent Brown. My question is, should I make that trade? It doesn’t feel right and I have hope in Roddy…But More importantly: Should I pick up one of these WRs off the wire?? Thanx guys!

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      DO NOT even consider that a real trade offer, he is trying to get one over on you, roddy could play half a season and score more then moreno in a whole year. hartline is the receiver on the wire i would go with

    • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      DO NOT trade Roddy, he’s one of the most consistent WRs in football. Not only that, but he doesn’t miss games! He had one bad game, don’t dump him just because of it. You’ll regret it, trust me!

      With that being said, if you feel the need to pick up another WR, Hartline or Michael Floyd are decent options. Hartline is pretty good in PPR and Michael Floyd has a lot of upside.

    • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

      go ahead and grab vincent brown for he has a little bit of superstar potential but not that much haha. and bro decline decline decline on that trade. moreno shouldnt even be owned.

    • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      I would probably drop Thompkins, although I can’t say that I’d be a little nervous about it. I love Thompkins’ upside, but at this point I think Shorts will put up better numbers. So long as Henne is the starting QB, I think Shorts has a better outlook than Thompkins. Thompkins seems to be #3 on the pecking order behind Amendola and Edelman. Once Gronk comes back he’ll be knocked down a peg lower. So if you’re going to pick up Shorts, drop Thompkins.

    Need to start 1QB,1RB,2WR,1TE,2FX (FX cane be wr/rb/te).
    My roster:
    QB: eManning, aDalton
    RB: rBush, sJax, jBell,
    WR: megatron, sSmith, mWilliams, aRoberts, mBrown
    TE: Gronk, vDavis

    • bukeye420 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      at first glance i like the trade, not giving up a ton at TE and gaining a lot at WR, what free agent would you pick up if you made the trade?

      • ElJoven September 11, 2013   Reply →

        Maybe rod streater or Bryce Brown. There’s not a lot out there right now.

    • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Cruz would be a great get for you even if you gave up Gronk and Mike Williams. However, I personally wouldn’t give up both Gronk and Williams for just Cruz. I think Gronk is going to beast up the NFL when he gets back. That alone should be enough value for Cruz. Also, I think your main weakness is RB to be honest. You have 2 great RBs, but nothing after them. WR I think you’re fine. You have 2 legit starters and Mike Williams who is solid.

      If you’re going to trade Gronk, I think you should try to get another solid RB. In fact, if the Montee Ball owner doesn’t know any better, maybe you can trade Gronk and Mike Williams for an upgrade at WR AND Montee Ball.

    • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

      i wouldnt make that trade. id counter it though and see if he takes v davis instead of gronk

  • el pulpo September 11, 2013   Reply →

    @team
    i would prefer pryor myself because of his upside and the possibility of 10+ points in rushing alone. There are bigger bradford fans than me though.

    My question is, I have Thomkins..should I drop him for Edelman? I know I’d like to keep both with the ammt of targets they got week 1 and danny A either sidlined, or history shows soon to be sidelined..

    only other drop options are lance moore or jonathan stewart who i was hoping to keep on the roster but i could probably pick up in a week or 2 again, everyone else in the leage hates him and i got him as last overall pick.

  • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

    Here’s my dilemma guys. It’s a 12-team PPR league that starts 1QB, 2RBs, 2WRs, 1TE, 1Flex, 1OP, 1D/ST, and 1K. My roster is as follows (current starters in CAPS):

    QB – BRADY, VICK
    RB – SHADY, MURRAY, Wilson, Helu, D. Thomas, B. Brown, J. Stew
    WR – NELSON, STEVIE JOHNSON, EDELMAN, T. Austin, Marlon Brown
    TE – CAMERON
    D/ST – BUCS (will find a good fill in on waivers this week)
    K – HENERY

    My question is this. I originally planned to start 3 WRs, but now with word of Da’rell Scott getting injured in practice today, should I start Wilson? He should be getting a monster workload on Sunday right?

    If I do start Wilson, who should I replace in my starting lineup? Stevie Johnson or Edelman?

    • Cnop September 11, 2013   Reply →

      TC does not mess around when it comes to fumbles. And you have the worry of stolen goal line touches from jacobs.
      Added to the fact that Peyton could drop 50 on the Giants D by halftime killing the run game.
      Edelman should be Bradys #1 #2 and #3 with the injuries on that team this is the only week but I would start Edelman over damn near everybody

      • Anonymous September 11, 2013   Reply →

        So I should start Stevie Johnson for my flex instead of Wilson?

        • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

          yes sir that would be correct wilson is in the doghouse right now.

      • mpapa720 September 11, 2013   Reply →

        So start Stevie Johnson for my flex instead of Wilson? With Shady and Murray as my 2 RBs and Jordy and Edelman as my WRs?

    • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

      def start edleman will have a huge week brady puts up numbers regardless of who he’s throwing to

  • chadmonkey September 11, 2013   Reply →

    Stacking up injuries on my bench in a 16-team regular league.

    QB – Freeman (blegh)
    RB – S. Jackson, T. Richardson, G. Bernard, M. Bush, *L. Bell, *J. Stewart
    WR – D. Amendola, B. LaFell, M. Sanu, V. Brown
    TE – J. Thomas, Gronk

    I’ll likely be trying to trade either Thomas or Gronk away.
    Stewart will be warming my bench until he comes back.

    Not sure how long to stick with Bell, seeing as how I’m thin at WR and no backup to my would-be backup QB. He’s supposed to be out another month or so. Any thoughts?

    • ukbsktbll September 11, 2013   Reply →

      Yea wouldnt trade away gronk. Could try using thomas as good trade bait. Always could offer bush to the guy with Forte.

    • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

      your wr core is pretty weak my friend. i would target a team with a weak TE and offer j thomas and v brown for someone like austin or djax

    • bukeye420 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      i agree with swagg, gotta sure up that WR core

  • Cnop September 11, 2013   Reply →

    Pretty sure i’ve heard the word Lisfranc in reference to Bell gotta part with either him or Stewart at some point.
    I would try a Thomas with a side of Bell package as he does hold value in a large league and try and upgrade at QB or WR

    • Beastofthebay September 11, 2013   Reply →

      As someone that stuck with MJD all season last year, if Lisfranc is even whispered I would run from Bell. You can pick up J-Stew if you want to hold on to an injured RB for later.

    Week 2……boldin @SEA or Mike williams @NO……Murray @KC or Jones-Drew @ OAK….cook @ATL or cameron @BAL….and Boldin or Kenbrel Thompkins @NYJ..???? thanks…im thinking thomkins will bounce back and have a better week 2 matchup with the jets plus amendola out…

    • bukeye420 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      M. WIlliams > BOLDIN > Thompkins and Murray > MJD, and COOK > cameron

  • swagg September 11, 2013   Reply →

    safer play is williams but boldin is a Beast who will always get his targets. And def murray over mjd, for that might be a blowout and he will get his eat the clock carries. I’d go with cook at TE its a good matcchup and cook is lookinglike a monster. and id go boldin over thompkins just bcuz he’s a beast but k thomp def has potential for a big week.

  • FLbeastFAN September 12, 2013   Reply →

    I need a question solved before tonight’s Pats v Jets game…what do you think is the better flex play this week: Kimbrel Thompkins tonight or Rueben Randle on Sunday? Please any thoughts would be appreciated!

    • John September 12, 2013   Reply →

      I would go with Randle if I were you. Eli is going to throw it close to 45-50 times on Sunday, Randle should be able to haul in more than his share.

      I do like Kembrell’s potential, but until he shows he can play, it might be too risky

    • bukeye420 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      thompkins over randle

    • andysdesign3 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      Thompkins for sure..!!! if ppr, he’ll get him targets…

  • John September 12, 2013   Reply →

    Looks as though Amendola will be out I got Stevie Johnson or Kembrell to start next to Boldin. I think Johnson is the safer option,but Thompkins has potential for a big night, I know he shit the bed in week one, but he did have 14 targets.

    For Flex I am really torn. I got Bradshaw, Tate Rape, Montee and Johnson or Kembrell.

    What do y’all think

    • Anonymous September 12, 2013   Reply →

      go k Thompson over Stevie Brady will put up numbers regardless of any circumstances Kendall will have a big role tonight

    • swagg September 12, 2013   Reply →

      if u didnt play k thomp id suggest stevie

  • bukeye420 September 12, 2013   Reply →

    kembrell over stevie johnson, i’m not so sure, but if i had to choose i would go tate or stevie, bradshaw has to face a very good miami front 7, and with thr RB situation cloudy in denver right now i think the other two are safer options

    • bcalum06 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      Id go stevie j..go hes the number #1.

      Hey Munt or Beastnation. My are qbs Eli/rg3 . My rbs are Charles/Jackson/ball/Mathews.

      Im thinking about trading rg3 for sproles. And then trade Mathews for room. Is this a good trade an upgrade for me at rb and qb?

    @bukeye420: That sounds like a good trade to me. Just need to hope Roddy heals quickly.

    Just got owner to accept my trade. I got Montee and Miles by giving Mike Williams, Jordan Cameron, and Lamar Miller.

    Now my team looks like:
    QB: Luck
    RB: Forte, Reggie Bush, Montee, Joique, Blount
    WR: Cruz, Miles, Hartline
    TE: Julius, Fred Davis
    DST: Patriots
    K: Vinatieri

  • ewu118 September 12, 2013   Reply →

    Playing against owner that has Knowshon Moreno starting. Should I start Montee as my flex or play it safe and start Denarius Moore at flex? Also could start Bradshaw at flex 0.5 PPR. I know Munt has Montee ranked relatively high, but if John Fox uses Knowshon more then I’m screwed.

    • bcalum06 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      moore at the flex this week. still in wait and see mode with montee and bradshaw

    • ShowMeYaTDs123 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      i would play it safe and start D. Moore. i’m still not sold on Moreno and i think it’s only a matter of time until Montee Ball becomes full time starter…assuming he improves his pass protection skills.

  • Winona77 September 12, 2013   Reply →

    @Ewu118: I’d honestly start Montee Ball still, even though he hasn’t yet taken over the starting gig, he will get the goal line carries. It only takes one or two solid ones for Montee to really break out.

    I have a question about a trade. I smell blood in the water from my leagues reigning champ, and I am engineering a big move trade that I’d like some advice on.

    The trade: My DeSean Jackson and Eddie Lacy for his Calvin Johnson.

    Why would he do it?

    My relevant players (2 RB, 3 WR non-ppr standard league):
    WR: DeSean Jackson, Mike Wallace, Miles Austin, Josh Gordon, Alshon Jeffery.
    RB: Marshawn Lynch, MJD, Eddie Lacy, A.Bradshaw, Joique Bell, C. Michael

    His team:
    WR: Megatron, Cecil Shorts, Danny Amendola, Emanuel Sanders, Chris Givens.
    RB: David Wilson, DeAngalo Williams, Le’Veon Bell, Knowshown Moreno, Michael Bush.

    Would it be a decent trade, or is it just ridiculously one sided? I am the commissioner of the league, and while I want to win I don’t want to screw over a team.

    Thanks.

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Given his current RB situation I don’t think it is too lop sided, he definitely needs some help

  • ERIK September 12, 2013   Reply →

    I’m sorry but I think you got hosed on that deal. Williams and Miles is a wash, maybe slight lean to miles imo so u basically traded cameron and miller for ball. I know everyone on here is very high on ball but the fact remains that hes in an awful timeshare..U sold very low on cameron

    • bukeye420 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      have to disagree erik, miles and mike williams are not that close, if ppr its not even a debate, and even with a three man time share and peyton throwing 7 TDs ball still outscored lamar miller and ball only missed the TD by a couple yards. he upgraded at RB, WR, and still has julius, i think you are slighting miles austin a bit, he did outscore mike will in week 1 without a TD

  • ShowMeYaTDs123 September 12, 2013   Reply →

    hey beast nation, need some advice on starting lineup this week in PPR league. any advice is appreciated!

    STARTERS
    QB: Eli Manning
    WR: Anquan Boldin
    WR: Julian Edelman
    RB: Steven Jackson
    RB: Matt Forte
    TE: Julius Thomas
    Flex (W/R/T): Demarco Murray
    DEF: Green Bay Packers

    BENCH
    QB: Josh Freeman
    WR: Mike Wallace
    WR: Miles Austin
    WR: Lance Moore
    WR: Ryan Broyles
    TE: Rob Gronkowski
    TE: Owen Daniels

    some of my thoughts below:
    – i think Kaepernick will get Boldin the ball especially after last week’s performance, but i’m wary about the matchup against Seattle

    – not sure how legit Kansas City’s def is, but Miles Austin got plenty of looks (10 rec last week) as defenses would rather lock down Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.

    – i’m thinking production from Mike Wallace may take awhile…at least until the Dolphins can establish a run game.

    – considering Lance Moore…i’m imagining Revis covering Colston so Drew Brees may rely more on Jimmy Graham and Lance Moore this weekend.

    • Alaskan86 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      I’d start Miles Austin over Boldin this week. No way Boldin comes close to matching last weeks performance.

      Your really deep at WR-I’d drop Broyles for a RB. You should also figure out a trade to combo a Wr and one of your two TE’s not named Gronk for an upgrade at WR or RB, you def need more depth at RB.

    • Bopper47 September 12, 2013   Reply →

      I think the you can chalk Mike Wallace’s poor preformance last week up to him being covered by Joe Haden. I would give him another chance over Boldin who is gonna be in a somewhat similar situation as Wallace was in last week being covered by Richard Sherman.

    • swagg September 12, 2013   Reply →

      trade j thomas and forte for lynch/cj/rice or the most likely one is d murray.

    TE – J.Cameron, Julius Thomas

    • BlackGold September 12, 2013   Reply →

      Tough. You really need to trade away RB like Lacy or T. Rich for a top WR. Your lack of depth there makes me wanna say keep Gordon on and drop Cameron if you absolutely have to. All your RBs are undroppable to me.

    • swagg September 12, 2013   Reply →

      you dont really have someone you should drop if u absolutely had to id go with cameron but you should prob trade some guys to open up some space for your team.

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Definitely try to work a 2 for 1 deal, either Reggie and joique for a better RB or a couple of your mid range RB and/or WR to upgrade, could also use Cameron in a deal. I would try my best to make a deal over dropping any of those players, you have a couple days to get it done, I’m sure there will be a kicker worth starting on Sunday morning

    Wondering who to start at WR3 and Flex spots this week. Below is my roster as currently set:

    QB – Cam Newton
    RB1 – Ray Rice
    RB2 – Lamar Miller
    WR1- Demaryius Thomas
    WR2 – A. Boldin
    WR3 – J. Edelman
    TE – Martellus Bennett
    FLEX – Emmanuel Sanders

    Bench – Green-Ellis, Michael Floyd, Andre Roberts (and Amendola + Vareen)

    Feel like Sanders will get the targets but also interested in one of the Arizona WRs. PPR league and Detroit secondary should get torched. But is there enough to go around this week after Fitz gets his? Thoughts?

  • Alaskan86 September 12, 2013   Reply →

    Beast Nation-should I flex Jordan Cameron or Edelman over Mathews this week? I would normally go with the Rb but don’t know if Mathews will get the touches. Standard scoring.

    Had this counter offer sent to me: Trading their Spiller and Cecil Shorts for my Reggie Bush and Josh Johnson. I initially offered him Bush and DeAndre Hopkins for Spiller and Shorts. I was trying to gain a playable WR. Now I think I would be losing WR talent. Should I agree to this counter offer? What do you all think of Munt’s prediction of Bush getting injured? Wasn’t Spiller out for awhile last year?

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Josh Johnson the QB? If that is the case make the move, Reggie bush is one of the most injury prone RBs in the league, and spiller is a stud, Cecil shirts will be start able numerous times this year, even more if henne keeps that job, I’m assuming that was a typo on josh johnson, but if not make the deal

    Looking to upgrade my WR3. With Roddy on my bench, Im starting Dez, SSmith and LMoore or AJeffery. Im thinking Marlon Brown may have a big week with Torrey drawing Hadens shadow. The other option is to package Moore and RMathews for a better WR. I have Lynch, Murray, McFadden and Ball so I can afford losing some RB depth. What WR can I expect for that package?

    Stand pat or pursue one of these options?

      Hard to say what you could with both of those guys coming off a bad week, but I would find a teams weak at RB and throw out some offers and see what you come up with, I would say open up a little higher then what you think you can get, it’s a negotiation

      i got CJ an am a little concerned with how good FJax looked.. Bush is injury prone but damn he looked good.. looking at your receivers i don’t think you can afford giving up Miles. Edeleman was Tom’s target last night and i will continue starting him, but as we seen he is not a lock for big numbers every week. i would at least get one of his #3 rec with the deal or Maybe try Murray/Austin for CJ… Murray’s a stud but i just like Bush better overall.. just my opinion brother

      yeh thats to much for spiller in my opinion..gordon or even edelman with bush. mot miles…gordon will be back wk3 and will be a #1 opnion if he keeps his head on straight. I think Edelman will be consistent…but not when gronk and amendlola come back..and vereen later in the season.

    Standard scoring: Romo or Eli , JJones or Givens ?

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Definetly Eli over romo this week, not sure about the receivers though

      • wesslo September 13, 2013   Reply →

        Just need JJONES or GIVENS to be my WR3?

      Bush bowe j Thomas and stafford*^^

      • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

        That too much to give up, I was considering it when you didn’t have Julius in, but I think adding him to the mix makes it not a good move, your leaving yourself exposed at QB, and while you are getting a top 5 back, your also taking in damaged goods with roddy not knowing when he will be 100%, I think you can get more if your going to give that much away

      • Broseph Stalin September 13, 2013   Reply →

        i agree with bukeye. i would definitely take that trade if Stafford wasnt in the mix though. once gronk returns JT doesnt hold much value to you, and you would have a true WR1 whereas now you dont.

    thanks for the site Munt and all the great feedback from everyone..so i went rb, rb, rb, Kaep, rb, rc with the hopes of getting lucky i guess.. i’m stuck between my beloved James Jones or LMoore. played Eleleman last night.. also have Roddy and a few sleepers.. any thoughts –

    With Vick Ballard gone for year with knee injury, do I start Bradshaw at flex over Denarius Moore and Montee Ball?

    • ewu118 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Or, try to trade Bradshaw+Lance to get Djax.
      If that fails, Bradshaw to get Miles Austin straight up?

  • Anonymous September 13, 2013   Reply →

    i agree with Mr. 420, although i wouldn’t have done it anyways. Stafford and Bush are more valuable to me than Lynch and Roddy in ppr, at least for now. and don’t let go of JT bro.

  • derekotto420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

    except for some touches by DBrown, no more time share in Indy.. Oakland is playing the Jaguars.. still waiting patiently for Ball to start.. IMO, Bradshaw/Moore/Ball, but you will also be told to start Moore from someone else cuz of the upside with Pryor.

  • ReignManAdam September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Anybody rolling with Tampa D this week? Or too risky?

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      to risky for me, who else is available, tampa is a middle of the league defense at best this week

  • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

    if you can get djax, go for it, not sure if i would trade a starting back for miles, what does your team look like?

    • ewu118 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      QB: Eli, Pryor
      RB: Shady, Sjax, Bradshaw, Montee, JStew
      WR: Jordy, Lance, Gordon, Denarius, Blackmon
      TE: Gronk, Fred

      I suppose I can combo Bradshaw and Lance to get Djax. Most I’d give is Bradshaw+Gordon.

        overpaying with both trades….bradshaw is RB2 now, with no one to take his touches. I would hold on to him.

      • Mr.McGibblets September 16, 2013   Reply →

        I really don’t think you’ll be able to get DJax for even Bradshaw/Gordon. To put it in perspective, I was just offered both SJax and Welker for DJax. Yes, that may be a little high, but he’s the hottest receiver in the league after two weeks. If you want him now, you’ll have to pay as such.

  • Zoomie89 September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Im reading BUY LOW on Ridley (He handled his fumble’itis issues last night, Gronk will open up running game soon etc). I need help at RB. But also own both Gronk and Orange Julius at TE. I’ve got an owner dangling Ridley at me for Julius Thomas. I could pick up Celek off waivers for short term fix till Gronk is back. PULL THE TRIGGER?

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      I like the move, Ridley has to return to form soon, and the patriots don’t have a whole lot of choices besides him, I also plan on using celek for a stop gap if I can get a deal done for Julius Thomas this week.

    • Broseph Stalin September 13, 2013   Reply →

      I would take that if you want more depth at RB. Once gronk is back, you will probably never start Julius over him anyway, especially considering hes now bradys main target while peyton has 4.

    • mjricher September 13, 2013   Reply →

      I’m in a similar situation, just posted my potential trade below. If you need a starting RB I like the deal, might be closer if you’re looking for depth. Who are your RB and flex starters?

  • mjricher September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Need some help in a potential trade. Here is my team Start 2 RB, 3 WR, 1TE, no flex option: ((R) is bench/reserve)

    P Manning

    F Gore A Peterson A Bradshaw (R) B Jacobs (R) K Hunter (R) R Helu (R)

    V Jackson C Shorts J Edelman P Harvin (R) S Rice (R) L Moore (R) D Moore (R)

    J Cameron J Thomas (R) R Gronkowski (R)

    J Brown

    Bengals Broncos (R)

    The potential trade would be Cameron + Shorts for R Wayne. I’d like to offer another WR – maybe L Moore, but that may not work. Any thoughts?

    • Cnop September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Edelman isn’t going to be of much use for long and harvin week 7/8 at best case.
      With no flex you dont need as much depth.
      It is starting to look like Hennes job to lose so Shorts should be solid now but you need another WR could you toss a bench RB into that deal with either Moore to get it done >?

  • wannaBEast September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Who to start this week given rwhite is not 100%: lance moore, chris givens, andre roberts, marlon brown, leonard hankerson??

    • Brendan September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Either Andre Roberts or Chris Givens. Carson Palmer showed a lot of trust in Roberts last week, but it worries me that he is probably the number 3 option on that team. Chris Givens is one of Sam Bradford’s favorite targets. Keep an eye on the status of Asante Samuel to see if he is playing. If Samuel is not playing, Givens’ value goes up for this week.

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Lance Moore. week 1 was a fluke

    • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Roberts, especially if it’s ppr.

  • Sappy September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Who should I start this week? (Pick 2)

    Djax, Miles, Mike Will, JJones, and C Givens

    • wannaBEast September 13, 2013   Reply →

      djax/julio

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      DJAX and miles, im assuming thats james jones not julio though

    • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Djax and Miles

  • wannaBEast September 13, 2013   Reply →

    Munt, I watched you beastcast last night and you mentioned josh freeman as a top 5 qb this week but on fantasy pros you have him ranked 15th for week 2

    Is there a disconnect between your rankings on beastdome and fantasy pros?

    • Sappy September 13, 2013   Reply →

      Most likely not giving away his rankings on fantasy pros.

  • andysdesign3 September 13, 2013   Reply →

    i have a super flex where i can play a QB…should I play this week…..EJ Manuel vs. CAR or Lance Moore @TB…this is a PPR league…

    • bukeye420 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      i would say manuel, i think you always go with the qb unless the matchup is extremely terrible

    • Sappy September 13, 2013   Reply →

      I agree with b. I don;’t know what your team looks like but you should try to make a deal to get another higher end QB that you could always start in that spot.

  • johnny utah September 13, 2013   Reply →

    I picked up Dallas DST for this week’s matchup against the Chiefs. I am tempted to grab the Arizona DST instead, but I have Stafford, Bush, and Akers on my team. Don’t like the idea of having a DST facing so many of my own players. Mind you, I have J. Charles as well – thoughts???

    • ewu118 September 13, 2013   Reply →

      If you can spare a bench spot, good to stash Arizona D/ST and still start Dallas this week. Then again I don’t think many people in most leagues see Cardinals D as high as Munt, so they’ll likely still be around come next week.

      Separate note, considering a trade of giving Reggie Bush + Joique Bell to get Jamaal Charles. That really an upgrade? I like having Joique as insurance while owning Reggie, and Jamaal’s injury history isn’t great either. Plus I think Lions offense is a lot more potent than Chief’s… thoughts about this trade?

      • Sappy September 13, 2013   Reply →

        I would go for it, Charles is top 5 RB quality while Reggie probably won’t end the year in the top 10 IMO. Plus Charles looks healthy so far this season while Reggie already doesn’t. I think Charles is the better and less risky option.

      • Sappy September 13, 2013   Reply →

        Sorry, I forgot to mention Charles’ quad. I don’t think it’s a problem while I believe Reggie’s injuries are being understated by the Lions.

      • bukeye420 September 14, 2013   Reply →

        i agree with sappy charles is a top 5 back and you can’t pass that up

      • Cnop September 14, 2013   Reply →

        Any way to keep Bell in that deal for when Bush gets ripped up from that turf later in the season ?

  • trillestvillain September 14, 2013   Reply →

    Joique Bell, Montee Ball, or Lance Moore at flex? And Romo or Ryan at QB?

    • Oniled September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Depends on ur bet. For Flex, Start Bell if you bet Bush is hurt more than they let on and Detroit gets in the red zone a lot. Start Ball if you bet his pass protection has improved and/or Denver hits garbage time. Start Moore if you bet Brees will throw it Moore’s way sometime.

      FantasyPros says Bell/Ball are best bets. I’d go Bell personally.

      As far as QB, Ryan hands down. STL got tore up by Arizona last week, and if STL scores as much as they did last time, Ryan is gonna throw like cray cray.

    • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Go Rb who gets goal line carries -Bell.

    QB/K combo for Michael Vick/Alex Henery… or pick another kicker?

    • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Qb/K combo is the way to go. I really like and trust this strategy. I have Romo and it help add to the total points. Good Luck. BEAST!

  • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

    I’m thinking of dropping Qb Pryor for Redman. Redman is starting rb. I have Romo and Pryor would be the only player I could drop. The rest of the team RB’S (Lynch, SJax, Murray, M. Ball, J. Stewart, D. Thomas), WR’S (S.Smith, M. Austin, L. Moore, D. Moore), TE’s (Gates and Gronk). What do you guys think?

    • Alaskan86 September 14, 2013   Reply →

      I dont see Redman ever starting on your team with your RB depth. Besides Pitt being horrible, Le Veon will own that job when he returns. If anything you should be looking to pick up a WR

    • bukeye420 September 14, 2013   Reply →

      I agree with Alaskan, Pryor will probably have more rushing yards then red man will have total yards all year. Don’t add a RB just because of his position, redman is of no value to your team, these are not the steelers we all know

    • Cnop September 14, 2013   Reply →

      Got a QB with thin ribs after week 1 i would not drop a backup for Redman.
      Unless you get crazy unlucky with injuries there is no reason for him to make your lineup

  • PageThis September 14, 2013   Reply →

    Thanks BEASTS. You’re advise and time are appreciated. If you have time and have thoughts on A. Peterson being put on the trade block in one of my leagues I posted the info in the Bust article. Good luck. BEAST!

    Fred Davis or Jordan Cameron… Standard Scoring

    • mdevans September 15, 2013   Reply →

      I like Cameron. He is playing against the Ravens who got torched by Julius Thomas. With Gordon out, he is going to get chances in the Red Zone.

      • Zozo September 15, 2013   Reply →

        Thanks… my worry is that T-Rich may run the ball… ala low scoring affair…

  • mdevans September 15, 2013   Reply →

    PPR I can’t decide who to sit Mike Williams, Julius Thomas, or Vernon Davis. I have Mike Williams on the bench, but I like the matchup against the Saints.

    • bukeye420 September 15, 2013   Reply →

      i would go with mike will and julius, but its close

      I’d bench Julius Thomas among the bunch

  • derekotto420 September 15, 2013   Reply →

    i can’t believe i wasted a valuable wr pick on Ball. Moreno looks great with no fumbles, two tds and approaching 100+ so far. doesn’t look like he’s starting anytime soon.

    • trillestvillain September 15, 2013   Reply →

      I traded VJax for him, I look pretty stupid now.. I’m trying to have a little faith still.

        No use crying over spilt milk. There’s still a lot of football to be played and chances are knowshow won’t be healthy for most of it even if he doesn’t lose the job. Be glad you didn’t draft hillman at least. Keep the faith.

    • tacosandwich September 16, 2013   Reply →

      I’m up in the air about it. It appears like Ball has the talent and Moreno has the experience at the moment. I’m sure Ball will bust out at some point, but will it be this season?
