  1. Tradet Dwyer for Rice? My team now is:

    Daniel Thomas
    Seattle D/St

    I picked a load of WR’s from the waivers and Tanner and Hardesty, but my rb’s for this week are not so good. I have to start three WR’s, 2RB’s and a flex. Charles is my other starting RB for this week of cource, but my other options right now are all bad. Should I still trade Dwyer for Gordon or Rice? What are the chances that Tanner or Dwyer or Hardesty will start and is worth of RB2 this week? In to scenarios what are my best options?

    1: I will trade Dwyer for Rice (this has better chances to happen). That leaves my RB2 options as Tanner, Hardesty, D.Thomas or J.Rodgers and WR’s Harvin,Young, T.Smith,Hill, Heyward-Bey, Roberts. If Tanner or Hardesty gets a start they should automaticly be in my starting lineup as RB2 right? If they both get the start then will they be better flex options than my WR’s? I mean 3WR’s +flex (Tanner/Hardesty/WR). And what would be my 3 starting WR’s?

    2: I don’t get the trade and Dwyer is still on my roster. Basically if Dwyer/Tanner/Hardesty gets the start that would be my RB2, but if more than one of them gets the start would that be flex starter as well? And what would be my best options as starting WR’s then?

    I know this is a little bit confusing and my english is not very good, but I hppe you understand and try to answer. :)

    And couple of more questions….I have to pick a kicker before kickoff and drop one player..what would that player be? And would any of these player be better option than my current players and if so then who would you drop to get them?

    R.Broyles (already have T.Young)
    A.Hawkins ( I already gave up on him)
    J.Blackmon (he has been my roster couple of times and I gave up…too soon)
    P.Hillis ( I own Charles)

  2. Eaglesfinn- A little more info on your kicker situation would be good… As Matt Bryant for (ATL) is a hot pickup this week. But I don’t even know if he is available on your waiver wire. Prater is another good choice. As for RB if you get stuck with what you have, start of course with Charles and then Dwyer/Hardesty both are a gamble but it looks as if Hardesty might take some of the work load from T. Rich as he heals.

  3. Thanks! Trade has not been cleared yet. For the kicker…I’m thinking of Crosby, Prater or Vinatieri….but who should I drop? I might play “wait and see” until Sunday…..because my RB situation.

  4. Is Freeman going to start throwing to Dallas Clark now that he knows he can trust him? I have been starting Finley and he has been killing me…

  5. I think you should make quizz your rb2 & go with smith young & DHB as your WRs. and I would play dwyer or rice in the flex (assuming you get him) I don’t think you can trust Hardesty or Tanner yet unless the RB in front of them is inactive…. Don’t drop Quizz & drop a K for another K ( i like the 3 you listed in that order, BTW)

  6. I would drop Tanner for Henderson. Yes, he’s a wildly inconsistent option but he has great upside and potential for huge games. Tanner on the other hand is pretty much worthless as Murray is close to recovery and he will still be splitting carries with Felix. So after this week, I’m not sure Tanner will hold any value at all especially if Murray returns to practice.

  7. yeh man i think clark is going to start heating up..freeman needs him. Freeman got a little of his swagger back this o lineman which they needed badly, martin, jackson, and mike williams. Honestly green bay has so many skilled receivers, nobody can double rodgers has so many options, to choose from..seems like finley and is agent pissed rodgers off talking smack..and finley dropping passes doesnt help his case either

  8. Hey guys should I start Vick against the Falcons or Hasslebeck against the Colts?? I am leaning more toward Hasslebeck even though Vick is playing his old team.

  9. i say hasselbeck..colts d is leaky, falcons d has been putting up decent fantasy points, eagles turn the ball over to much also. Both luck and hasselbeck will be letting the rock fly this week.

  10. hey munt or dome nation..what 6 rbs would you rather have on your roster : bolden, goodson (i have dmc), hillis, hunter, hardesty, dwyer, starks, kevin smith. I am in need of a rb this week, but also looking towards who will be able to help me if i need another rb down the road

  11. I don’t get that Harvin rank. 18th and four teams on a bye. All he has done is to be the best and most realible WR out there….Ponder or not Ponder….he will be top-10…..again.

  12. You said go Smith, Young and DHB…..Smith in on a bye.

    And that trade for Rice didn’t get through, :(

    I will start Dwyer and Charles as my RB’s and Hardesty in flex if Richardson doesn’t play. About that Tanner….I will keep him because he might be my flex start if Murray/Jones are out. And I dropped D.Thomas for M.Crosby. My WR’s now are Harvin, DHB and Young.

    I just need RB2, WR3 and flex out of those BAD players for this week….next week I get Rice and T.Smith back so I can forget Tanner and others.

    You said: Don’t drop Quizz & drop a K for another K”

    I don’t really understand at all what you are tryng to say there….sorry.

  13. Unfortunately I didn’t get Bryant. :( But I dropped D.Thomas and picked Crosby. I will hold on Tanner and Hardesty for now…..because of my not so deep RB situation. My hopes are that Dwyer gets the start and Mendenhall is out. And maybe Richardson is out and Hardesty gets a start. Then I would start Hardesty and Dwyer as my RB2 and flex. Now I have S.Hill as my flex and it’s hard to trust him. Tanner is my flex start if F.Jones is out…if not then I will drop him and pick K.Smith or Henderson or some other player with upside.

  14. With Jonathan Dwyer now confirmed to start this week per Rotoworld, please pick 2 (1 for W/R flex and 1 for W/T flex) from of the following – Marques Colston, Miles Austin, James Jones, Jonathan Dwyer, Martellus Bennett. Thanks for your help Muntra!!!

  15. stevie is the go to guy in buffalo and danny just getting back from his injury..if you have other decent receivers and it not going to hurt you..i would…danny you know you cant play right now

  16. I’m not Muntra, but I would pick Colston and Austin. Both are going to be in shoot out games.

  17. I need to start 3 (a RB, WR, and Flex) out of these guys (0.5 PPR). Thanks!

    LeSean McCoy
    Darren Sproles
    Antonio Brown
    Eric Decker
    Randal Cobb
    Reggie Wayne

  18. McCoy, Cobb, Decker. I think Philly focuses 9on the run after the bye week and Vick struggling. Cobb should have alot of oppourtunities if Nelson is slowed by the hammy, and Decker versus NO secondary, nuff said.

  19. Hernandez didn’t make the trip to London. Re-Claimed Pettigrew off Waivers. Dreesson instead?

  20. I have little bit panic with Stafford this week. Now I read news that Calvin Johnson missed paractice on Friday. Young is banged up and they play against Seattle that has one of the best defeses out there. They are the best team to bring pressure by rushing only four and drop others into coverage. Just the way that teams have eliminated Detroit offense this season. Just look at the QB’s vs. Seattle:

    A.Rodgers 9p
    T.Brady 19p
    T.Romo 12p
    C.Newton 7p

    Now with Detroit WR’s banged up and Calvin not practicing…should I look for one of these QB’s over Stafford this week?


    Are they better gamble to get 15-20 points than Stafford?

  21. ESPN Boston suggests Aaron Hernandez may have stayed in New England because he was expecting to be a new dad this weekend.
    We’ve yet to see confirmation or details on the original NFL Network report that Hernandez didn’t make the trip to London with the rest of the team. Working the phones for an answer, beat writer Mike Reiss floats the idea that Hernandez could still meet up with his teammates by Sunday. There’s a glimmer of hope that it’s not the ankle injury that kept Hernandez from making the flight. “

  22. Picked up Bradford and going to start him over Stafford? Whoaaa crazy crazy?? I might pair him up with C.Givens as my flex play over T.Young also.

  23. I would start Vick. They come off the bye and Eagles have healthy Maclin now. And he is going to get his rushing yards in this one. He plays for his job and gets it done.

  24. Dwyer/Colston

    If Dwyer starts and Redmans out then Dwyer will be the workhorse back and should get you more than a WR unless they have a breakout game.
    Colston in a shootout on Primetime is a no brainer

  25. Broncos CB Tracy Porter (illness, questionable) is “unlikely” to play on Sunday night against the Saints.

    Does this news make D.Henderson better option in flex than T.Young?

  26. Are the Beast Dome psychic rankings for standard scoring leagues only…or is there a way to get them for PPR leagues too?

    Thanks again in advance!
