  1. Im in a 16 team ppr league and 3-1.
    My starting lineup would be:
    Ben Roethlisberger
    Brandon Marshall
    Reggie Wayne
    Arian Foster
    Benjarvous Green-Ellis
    Aaron Hernadez
    Danny Amendola
    Alex Henery
    Arizona Cardinals

    Bench:
    Christain Ponder
    Nate Washington
    Jacquizz Rodgers
    Ben Tate
    Brandon Bolden
    Ronnie Hillman

    If there are any ways to improve my team let me know. I was thinking of trading nate washington, green-ellis and hernadez for a running back and tight end. Maybe like DMC and Owen Daniels. or adrian peterson and celek. Let me know if you have other suggestions and what you think of my idea.

  2. Good stuff as always, Munt! Always look forward to the Haikus each week. Thanks for the time put into each article.

    I’ve been offered T-Rich and Maclin for Mathews and Wright. You have Richardson as a sell-high candidate on a previous article but I view him higher than you. Should I pull the trigger or try to make a better trade in my favor, because at least 5 teams have asked me what I want for Richardson…

    Is there a name I could target?

    Thanks as always!
    C

  3. Hey Muntra. What do you think about Welker? Is he a sell-high candidate still? Is his ROS outlook better than that of Danny Amendola?

  4. Munt, thanks for all your help so far. Would u take mike williams for Fred Jax, I offered Freddie & Maclin for AJ. It was a miss. If I did that I could drop Ryan Williams for Powell Togo with quizz, foster & Mathews. I need a WR but can’t get it done. I also have Maclin & fitz….. Any wisdom will help
