  1. great stuff here man..whats the deal with bolden? who will be better to own if he does come back after the bye..vereen or bolden?

  2. Is K.Smith still worth holding on? What’s the situation in Detroit right now? I would like to drop Smith for C.Shorts or S.Vereen.

  3. I’m curious what Thomas will mean to Detroit. He had a promising career in Jax until gabbert/blackmon came along

  4. How do you guys feel about trading Lynch For RG3? My current QB is vick with Alex Smith as a back up. My RB’s include: Lynch, MJD, Reggie Bush, Doug Martin and K. Smith.

  5. BD Nation, I need a QB for week 9 and could use your help. Russel Wilson, Matt Cassel, Ryan Tannehill, Blaine Gabbert, or John Skelton?

  6. i have him and i am waiting for 2 weeks to see what happens..i mean they did produce with him last season.

  7. russel or weeden if hes available would be better than the other qbs you have listed..both weeden and russel play defenses that are suspect against the pass. bmore’s d is a wreck right now..weeden could produce decent numbers, with their d playing decent now too.

  8. How many RBs can u play and flex? If its a 2RB league than I wouldnt trade Lynch. MJD is out prolly for awhile. So that leaves Martin, whos solid, and Bush. My concern is that Bush isnt 100% and he is welcoming a RBBC with Daniels which makes him a flex at best. Lynch is your RB1 and Martin is RB1/2. Plus RG3 is regressing and I think weve seen his ceiling.

    If you want a better QB try moving Smith now while hes hot and spread all across ESPN. Plus Vick is still the starter, pick up Foles as insurance.
