Okay, just got offered Anquan Boldin and Tim Hightower for CJ Spiller and Kyle Orton. The guy has Kevin Kolb and no backup QB and thus would like Orton and likes the upside of Spiller. Should I do it?

Or another trade is in talks. I get Cedric Benson, Tim Hightower, and Wes Welker, and he gets Rashard Mendenhall, Michael Crabtree, CJ Spiller, and Kyle Orton. Should I do it?

I am loaded at RB as I have Mendenhall, Foster, Cadillac, Spiller, and Jamaal Charles. My #2 WR is Crabtree. What would you do?

Funny, I'm in a similar position trying to figure out WTF to do for my QB spot. Stupid Kolb...

If I were you, I would only look at turning one of my RBs into a solid #2 WR. I think you should do the Spiller/Orton trade for Hightower and Boldin. Hightower isn't a FF starter, but a decent sub on a bye week. Orton is a decent backup but I imagine you have a great starter to use every week instead - just need someone for the bye week. Boldin is surely an upgrade over Crabtree after his performance last night. Had it not been the Jets D, he probably would have gotten a TD or two.

I don't like the second trade because doing a 3 for 4 deal isn't worth it for you. You're just going to pick up whatever is on the wire to fill in for Orton anyways, so he should be giving you someone in the process and let you choose who to drop. If he ponies up something good for that 4th spot then maybe, or let you keep CJ and it's an OK deal.

Yeah I'm sure kolb is hurting a lot of people. What about a straight up deal of Mendenhall for Ocho Cinci or Steve Smith of the Panthers?

Ocho Cinco had 3 catches for about 30 yards by the middle of the third quarter when the Pats were up 31 to 3. His TD and 120 more yards were basically trash time towards the end of the game. I don't expect him to get those stats each week given the Bengals first place schedule.

Boldin looked pretty good against the Jets secondary, which is a good sign given how much pressure Flacco had all night. My only concern with him is potential injury. He's one of those guys who misses at least 2 games a year, but I think he'll be a 1100 yard 7 TD WR this year.

Steve Smith (car) was involved in many plays against the Giants yesterday. I have him in several leagues so I keep a close eye on him. He didn't have a spectacular game, but a good one against a good defense in the Giants. I do like him a lot for a 2/3 fantasy WR, but I wouldn't give up Mendenhall for him, especially if you can wait until Big Ben gets back. I think Ben will open up the run game substantially for Mendy.

If your guy is really big on CJ Spiller, I'd go for a straight up trade of him for any of those three WRs you have mentioned. It would be a superb trade,and you can let him take the risk of the rookie.

Great info. I really appreciate it and wish I could rep you again.

Actually, it is another guy that I might be able to trade with for Steve Smith or Ocho Cinco but from what you have said, sounds like the best bet with the least amount of risk it to make the trade for Boldin.

Go with the first one, you have enough guns At RB anyway with Foster and charles, and Boldin could help you out. Kyle Orton might not be playing much anyway with talks about starting Tebow sooner.

Yeah, I would also go for the first trade. Anquan looked great last night against a stingy Jets defense. I'm assuming you have the starting QB spot wrapped up so you don't really need Orton, and I doubt if CJ cracks your starting lineup all year with the backs you have.

Yeah Rivers is my starting QB and like you said, I really doubt Spiller will ever crack my starting lineup unless I have some injuries. Even then, I feel good enough about starting Hightower in the flex if this deal goes through. The trade has been submitted and am just waiting on the guy to respond.

No. Why would you trade a good RB from a playoff team, for a good RB on a non playoff team with a rookie QB?

Offer Orton for Boldin straight up. No RBs need to be involved. He needs a QB, you need a better WR. Remember, you're not really under pressure here as your team is much more solid than his. You should be dictating this trade.

Btw, can you list his team and yours? Might help in offering suggestions.

You guys are awesome. I really appreciate all the comments. I will list both teams by position, but it doesn't look like the guy I was going to do the trade for Boldin with wants to trade. He and I are good friends, but he is one of those guys that enjoys being annoying and likes to constantly make counter offers of things like Andre Johnson for Boldin, or Wes Welker for Philip Rivers. Crap like that. Makes it kind of pointless to deal with him.

The problem is he just hates Orton for some reason even though he is one of the better backups available and when the crappy trades he offers, NO ONE is going to give him anything better. He has been holding off on the trade because he wanted to see what happened with the waiver wire. His big waiver wire transactions: cutting Kolb to sign Derek freaking Anderson and cutting Brent Celek to sign Jeremy Shockey. Dumb! Yet somehow this guy routinely wins fantasy leagues....

Wow, your team is stacked and you should make the playoffs with it barring injury. Don't even bother offering any starters as you are strong in every position but DST. DSTs don't make or break a team anyways.

For your trade though, I think the best thing to do is go after Boldin. That guy has 3 solid WRs and doesn't need Boldin on his bench collecting dust. So if I were you, I would offer Spiller and Orton for Boldin and Chester Taylor. Essentially, you will get value out of both of those two guys for a starting #2 WR. You can just drop Taylor for another backup QB on the wire if you want or whatever. You just need to get a backup QB for week 10.

You might be more comfortable staying put though, and I don't blame you for it. Your #2 WR probably won't be the difference maker in your games given your other starters.

Ckw with the first guy I would do like Dutchrudder suggested and offer Orton straight up for Boldin. He has nothing but DA at qb? He should jump for it. I would also like a spiller or cadillac for Berrian if I had your team..

dc_txtech
09-15-2010, 03:40 PM
I concur. If he doesn't want to trade Boldin for Orton straight up or with a scrub thrown in then I would just take all deals off the table. Let him rot with Derek Anderson and a stud WR sitting on his bench. You should be fine either way.

Ckw
09-15-2010, 04:48 PM
Thanks all of you. I can't rep any of you as I have already repped you all too recently, but I really appreciate the advice.

I would feel incredible about my team if I just hadn't made the idiotic decision of drafting Michael Craptree when Wes Welker was available. I just saw the potential of Craptree and thought he played well enough at the end of last year and was worried about Welker's injury that I made a dumb move. I feel like it was about the only bad decision in my draft.

I appreciate the advice of just letting him rot. I feel like I have made some VERY fair deals to him and was willing to accept whichever WR (Boldin, Welker, Jennings, or White) and was willing to make better deals based on who he was willing to trade. Only guy he would consider was Boldin, and we had agreed to the deal but he then decided to back out. Screw him as it is his loss. He also went and signed Michael Vick which should be interesting, but Orton is definitely the most proven of his options.

I also have a potential trade going of Crabtree and Cadillac for Steve Smith (CAR) which I will do in a heartbeat if the guy accepts but am certainly confident enough with my team to just stand pat. If I can get Celek off waivers, I will feel excellent about my TE position which was also a little weak, so we'll see.

Once again, I really appreciate all the comments and suggestions.

Welker, Hightower, and Maclin for Mendenhall, Crabtree, and Spiller. Yes or no?

I'd do it. Crabtree will only be as good as his QB...which unfortunately for him is Smith. Unless Smith miraculously turns it around this week, I see Crabtree having low numbers again. Unless Carr comes in and somehow starts playing like Peyton Manning :mcnugget:.

Welker is a beast, Hightower is decent I suppose... you have Arian Foster who will hopefully be able to carry your team, and Maclin is also an uncertainty with Kolb having a concussion and Philly having to rely on Vick. Pretty much the trade is worth it only because you'll be getting Welker :D.

*EDIT*

Or I have the offer of Boldin and Benson for Mendenhall and Crabtree.

That trade is a lot better IMO. Low risk, and you are getting an experienced WR with an above average QB (Flacco) instead of a 2nd year WR with a crap QB(Smith). Plus I think Benson will end up having a better season than Mendenhall.

No and no, IMO. As much as I love Arian Foster and as good as Charles looked, Mendenhall is still probably your highest rated RB. I wouldn't trade him for anything less than a top 5 pick.

Ckw
09-15-2010, 11:27 PM
Alright it's done. Both of us feel uneasy about it but we just did a trade of Rashard Mendenhall, Michael Crabtree, and Cadillac Williams for Wes Welker, Cedric Benson, and Chester Taylor.

I really feel like with Welker and Benson, I have a consistent RB as well as consistent WR. I hate giving up Mendenhall. Absolutely hate it, but I feel like I got good value and made up for a mistake I made in not drafting Welker over Crabtree.

I plan to drop Chester Taylor. Available options as backup RBs are Peyton Hillis, Fred Taylor, Kevin Faulk, Javon Ringer, and Leon Washington.

My RB depth took a bit of a hit losing Cadillac and Mendenhall, but I feel like I gained more with Welker and Benson than I lost. What are your thoughts? Also, what FA would you recommend I go after to make up for the loss of Cadillac?

Ckw
09-16-2010, 12:25 AM
Really anxious to hear some opinions on the trade. Who do you think won and who lost? Did I give up too much? I feel like for the long haul, Benson and Mendenhall are essentially a wash as both were 2nd-3rd round picks. I guess the major thing this trade says is I really placed my eggs in Arian's basket. If he fails, it is fairly likely my team fails. Welker is the icing, but I had to lose a great backup in case of injury in Cadillac.

Any suggestions on who I should grab on the waiver wire? Obviously, Brandon Jackson is gone. My RB core looks like this: Foster, Charles, Benson, & Spiller. Do you think I should keep Chester Taylor or get someone like Peyton Hillis, Fred Taylor, & Leon Washington. Anyone I should be on the lookout for?

09-16-2010, 12:43 AM
I probably would have kept Mendenhall, right now he is all Pitts got, then with cheesburger comes back his touches will decrease but his yards per will increase. Welker is a plus so he may end of saving you, a consistent WR is worth his weight in gold. you have plenty of depth @ RB too.
My focus would be to upgrade QB now :snowday:

I have Philip Rivers and Kyle Orton. Don't feel too bad about my QBs. Only position I was weak at was #2 WR. I gave up a #1 RB to get a #2 RB (Benson) and #2 WR.

The thing that got me with Mendenhall is the stat I read about how terrible of a day he really had until he broke off that one big run they have been constantly showing on ESPN. Without that, he would have had a terrible day. I felt like this was a chance to buy low (Benson) and sell high (Mendenhall).

Still think I should upgrade at QB?

I think you are set at QB. Rivers is a great QB, and Orton isn't too bad. He definitely won't be losing his starting spot to Tebow anytime soon so you should be ok with him if Rivers ever gets injured. Plus, what would you have to give up to get a QB that may be marginally better than Rivers? Not worth it IMO.

I like to carry three QB's if possible. top tier #1 Aaron Rodgers. third level like a Matt Ryan then for good measure off waivers biggest surprise like a healthy Matt Hasselback. that gives you various combinations plus if you have a flex option that includes QB you can use the top two in best match-ups for maximum points. but hey that's just me you do what you want.

No need for 3 QBs in my league. We can only play 1 QB a week and cannot use one as a flex option. That is only left open for WR and RB.

Rivers has talent but cries too much for my taste. Orton is one knock away from season ending status, his durability is always a question?

Rivers may cry a river, but you can't knock his play, especially in fantasy. The guy has been a top 4-8 fantasy football QB the last 4 years or so. I simply continues to put up numbers. Great QB IMO.


Anyway, back on topic. What do you guys think of my trade? Obviously, I should probably drop Chester Taylor as he provides me little in the rushing game. So my choices on the waiver wire, as Peyton Hillis already got picked up, are Fred Taylor, Javon Ringer, John Kuhn, Julius Jones, Leon Washington, Brian Westbrook, Laurence Maroney, Jerrious Norwood, Mike Bell, Kevin Smith, Kareem Huggins, Earnest Graham, and Tashard Choice. Slim pickings I'd say. I am leaning towards Fred Taylor.

Yeah with the 3 headed monster they are running in Seattle, I'm not sure he is the guy to pickup. As I said, I already picked up Taylor as a bit of a replacement for Cadillac but am very intrigued also by Javon Ringer (hey Chris Johnson can't stay healthy forever, right?) and Isaac Redman for the Steelers. Both guys look like they offer some potential down the road especially if injuries occur. Ringer is probably better but will only be worth anything if CJ gets hurt. Redman on the other hand is going to be the Steelers main goal line back and will definitely take some carries from Mendenhall.

I really appreciate the comments JB

Duthchman, dc txtech, where are you guys? I'm waiting for some commentary from you two. Did I really screw up with this trade? Personally, I feel pretty damn good about it, but am a little more concerned about RBs. One injury and I might be hurting unless I make some very smart early moves.

But I'm not dropping a possible fantasy stud. I am dropping a likely fantasy dud (Chester Taylor) for a possible fantasy stud.

The only thing I dropped for Fred Taylor was the 49ers D, and I plan to just swap those out each week and pick up whatever the hot D is for that game.

So final verdict and I'm ready for everyone's honest, brutal truth? Did I win with this trade (Rashard Mendenhall, Michael Crabtree, and Cadillac Williams for Wes Welker, Cedric Benson, and Chester Taylor?

My weekly starting lineup looks like this:

QB Philip Rivers
RB Arian Foster
RB Cedric Benson
RB/WR Jamal Charkes
WR Andre Johnson
WR Wes Welker
TE Kellen Winslow/Brent Celek

Cadillac was going to be riding your bench most of the time. Benson is not far behind Mendenhall, and might even have a better overall year. And the upgrade to Welker is pretty huge. Also, you still have Spiller on your bench for bye weeks, and he may turn out to have a lot of value. Just watch your matchups.

Holy shit I just got offered Steven Jackson and Marques Colston for Andre and CJ Spiller....

Should I even begin to consider this? I feel like my team is very set and strong at all position, but damn. I get to keep Benson so it makes my RBs deep again, I add on Steven Jackson, Colston is a top 10 WR, and still keep Benson as depth and situational play.

Then again, Andre Johnson is THE BEAST.

Ain't no way you can give up AJ. Jackson is going to be abused again, and will rack up some yards but not a lot of TD's. Also the Rams are going to be playing from behind a lot, so how effective would he really be?

Yeah not sure what I'm thinking. Granted I think the Rams will be better than last year and Steven Jackson was still the 10th best fantasy RB last year.

Well glad to see everyone thinks I made a good deal. It took my buddy coming by last night and us getting a little inebriated before we finally hammered out the deal.

A guy in my league wants a QB and is willing to trade an RB. I have Rivers and Matt Ryan. I was thinking about offerring up Ryan. It makes me a little nervous about injury and his bye week (week 10).

Anywho, here's his RB's

Tolbert
Tomlinson
R. Brown
Portis
P. Hillis
P. Thomas

Would you offer the trade? I don't think he'll let go of Thomas, especially with Bush sidelined. So was thinking about trying to get Ronnie Brown. Maybe even Hillis, but I don't know much about him.

That's a tough question.

Brown is a beast but you can only rely on him for 1/2 a season. Hillis might have the most upside but he also has the lowest floor. I think PT Cruiser is probably the safest bet but you never know with an ankle injury.

If I needed a guy I could plug in week to week and feel comfortable with, then I'd prolly go PT. If I wanted a guy who could win me a game or two just by himself, I might go with Hillis.

I don't see how you gain anything with this trade. Rivers and Brady are both equally as capable fantasy options, and Rivers is not exactly injury prone. Sure you aren't giving up much RIGHT NOW, but what is Dez Bryant takes over the #2 spot and starts putting up big numbers?

I see this as more of a risk for you than you should take. If he gave you something more in return, I'd consider it.

My first instinct was to go for it but I didn't realize how good Maclin has been. With Desean Jackson's status up in the air and Rodgers having a concussion, I'm not sure I would make that trade. Huge gamble for sure.

Edit: BTW If I were you I would go out and grab Danny Amendola. He is the only thing the Rams have left at WR and he was actually pretty good before Clayton went down (especially in ppr leagues). The guy had 20 freakin targets last week and put up 12 grabs for 95 yards. Plus he does stuff like this...

Andre went 12th overall a little lower than normal just because this is a 14 team league and everybody wanted a RB since Rb's are so hard to come by ina big league.

But draft positons are kinda out the window at this point. I think Andre's value is a little down now since he is injured and Matt hasn't lit it up.

If everybody redrafted today, I guarantee you that Bradshaw goes in the second round in most leagues.

Sure, maybe we are all a bit biased but once Andre gets over this ankle injury, watch out!

What other RBs do you have?

I have him on my team and about the only trade proposal I have been considering is Andre, Benson, and Kellen Winslow for Nicks, MJD, and Dallas Clark.

Three.

Part of my motivation though is to take away this guy's depth at RB. He has Lesean McCoy, Chris Johnson, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Ray Rice. Rice & McCoy have been injury prone this season and who knows if they will make it a full season. If something happens to either of them and I take Bradshaw from him, his depth is shot while I still have Foster, Charles, Benson, Felix Jones, Spiller, & Bradshaw. Plus if Foster's performance turns out to be an aberration or one of my top RBs gets hurt, I have another top RB to plug in.

Plus, I need help at TE and Zach Miller has been money.

Hernandez has a lot of upside imo. He's a big fast kid with a ton of athleticism. I'm really interested to see how he does with Moss out of the lineup. 2 schools of thought on that, either he is going to see more targets now that Moss is gone or the DB's aren't going to have to respect the deep ball anymore and will be able to key in on Welker and Hernandez. I'm betting on the former.

OKay here's my conundrum. I have no runningbacks and I'm sitting a WR each week that's making somebody cry. in a 3WR league I have:

R. Wayne (IND)
R. Moss (MN)
H. Ward (Pitt)
S. Holmes (NYJ)
M. Williams (TB)

And then Louis murhpy for kicks. What sort of rb's should I be looking at. A guy in the league had Thomas Jones on his bench because he had better starters.

I'd be looking for a top 15 RB. Thomas Jones is NOT worth one of your top WRs.

Look for a team that has 3-4 good RBs but needs help at WR. Then see what happens.

Also, I just made another trade. Curious what you guys think.

I get Calvin Johnson and Beanie Wells and he gets Cedric Benson and Kenny Britt.

My team now looks like this:

QB: Philip Rivers & Kyle Orton
RB: Arian Foster, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jamaal Charles, Mike Tolbert, & Beanie Wells
WR: Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Wes Welker, Mike Wallace, & Michael Crabtree
TE: Zach Miller & Aaron Hernandez
D/ST: Seattle Seahawks
K: Matt Bryant

What I am now thinking of doing is trading Ahmad Bradshaw & Wes Welker or Mike Wallace for Steven Jackson & the Steelers D. The guy badly needs a decent WR & has both the Titans D and Steelers D.

Thoughts?

They will trade all 3:

Jonathan Stewart

No. Shonn Greene has been a bust that shows no sign of getting better, Jonathan Stewart is not getting any opportunities and the Panthers offense sucks, and Nate Washington isn't even the Titans top receiver anymore (that now belongs to Kenny Britt.

Don't do it. Quality>Quantity

So any of you guys have opinions on my trade?

I sent Cedric Benson and Kenny Britt for Calvin Johnson and Beanie Wells (has been terrible but has some potential upside and is getting the majority of the carries in AZ).

My RBs are Arian Foster, Jamaal Charles, Cedric Benson, CJ Spiller, Mike Tolbert, and Felix Jones.

My WRs are Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Mike Wallace, & Deion Branch.

Think I should do a trade of Cedric Benson for Hakeem Nicks?

I could also possibly do Andre for Ahmad Bradshaw & Brandon Marshall. Think I should do either one?

I would jump at that one if I were you. Bradshaw and Marshall are both starters and each will get you about what Andre will. Dre just doesn't get the TD's like other WR's do.

Thanks man. I am having to do my best to make up for a bad trade I made. I traded Mendenhall and fillers for Wes Welker and Cedric Benson. I am finding out that Welker helps very little in non ppr leagues. He simply doesn't get enough yardage so now I have Marshall and Calvin Johnson as my wrs and Bradshaw, Charles, and Foster as my rbs.

I am happy with that. I may turn around and trade Bradshaw or Charles along with Welker or Mike Wallace for Steven Jackson and the Steelers D. What do you think of that? I would be extremely solid at every position, Jackson is getting his swagger back, and the Steelers D has been the best in the league so far. He badly needs wr help as all he has is Driver and Colston. Thoughts?

I definitely wouldn't let go of Bradshaw and I probably wouldn't do it anyways. Defenses are a dime a dozen, 2 of the top 5 defenses are free agents in one of my leagues.

If you really like SJax, maybe offer Charles and Welker/Wallace but that's pushing it. And Steelers D should just be an afterthought IMO.

Thanks bro! I am definitely going to heed your advice this time around. I was reading back through the thread, and you were adamantly against me trading Mendenhall for Benson and Welker. Definitely a mistake on my part, but I think I have made up for it with some of my recent trades and waiver signings.

Available defenses in my league are the Seahawks, Cardinals, Falcons, Lions, Chargers, Redskins, Chiefs, Dolphins, & Buccaneers. Think I should sign any of those?

Depends on your league scoring settings. In my money league Seattle is the 4th ranked defense and SD is 5th, so not bad pickups at all.

Assuming add/drops are free you could always just play matchups week to week. Seattle plays Arizona this week and they will probably rack up a bunch of points going against undrafted rookie Max Hall.

Wow! I would have thought league scoring for defense would be pretty similar across the board. In my league Seattle is ranked 4th but SD is ranked 9th.

I went ahead and stayed with Seattle this week. Already had them on my team and will stick with them I guess.

I might pick up SEA defense and drop the SD. What do y'all think? SD has NE this week, then TEN and HOU and then they are on a BYE.

*Edt, SEA is not available. I am worried about keeping SD. Skins, Rams, Cards, Cowboys, Panthers are available.

I have SD in my main league and I plan on sticking with them at least through the bye. But it's 10$ per add/drop so that's factoring into my decision also.

My advice would be to keep SD and pick up Was for the week if you have the roster space available.

I like Was for the week but I have to drop someone. Lee Evans or Spiller is about all I would part with but i don't think I want to for a defense.

Manning and Palmer have been statisticlaly pretty equivelent, although palmer has been slightly better

Rice has been a big disappointment, and Charles has been better, however he has not scored very often

Who are your WRs?

Also even though he is having a down year, his upside is still there and he is the main goal line back even with McGahee so at first glance, you are giving up too much. If you want Palmer, then I guess make the trade but I might keep Eli if I were you. Seems to me the only thing you are getting in this deal is Charles and with the touchdowns or lack thereof for Charles, it doesn't seem like you are really getting better unless you really like Palmer.

I guy in my league has Kitna and no other QB (well sorta) and is looking for a trade. He has some good WR's, and decent RB's although some are injured or underperforming. I was thinking about offerring him:

Matt Ryan
Lee Evans or Dez Bryant

for me to recieve either:
Reggie Wayne or TO

Any advice?

Evans and Bryant may see another start or they may not if everyone stays healthy, to date I have only started each one once I think. And I am in better shape. Spiller is junk but I don't think he'll bite on that. He's set at TE right now so Moeaki is not much good to him. And TE's are thin, so having a back up stashed on the bench is good. Only reason I am nervous about giving up Ryan is in case something happens to Rivers. Also Rivers has a bye next week. I could offer Ryan and Evans or Bryant for Kitna and Wayne. Kitna would cover the bye week (I need to see who the play next week) and just be mediocre insurance on the bench.

I would target Wayne. I have TO in 2/3 leagues and he has been great but for some reason I just don't trust him to keep it up. Might just be an irrational fear, but my gut tells me something has to give. He also has a pretty tough schedule coming up with two games vs the Steelers and one vs the Jets.

Just my 2cents

If he doesn't go for the Wayne trade I would still be ok shipping off Ryan and Evans for TO. I might be a little more hesitant to get rid of Dez though.

yeah, I feel the same about TO, he has been lighting it up but I have the same gut feeling as you.

If is ship off Ryan right away as opposed to dragging it out some, I am going to be in a tight spot next week @ QB with Rivers on a bye. He'll turn around and drop either Young or Kitna, neither one excite me but if it gets me Wayne then it might be worth it.

Well, I feel my team is good enough to go deep in the playoffs as is, the guys I am offerring up are either insurance or will hardly start if at all. So my thought was if I can land Wayne, my team will be even better.

I definitely like the trade just not sure if you should wait or not. If you think you can get by without Rivers for a week then do it now. If it might cost you a loss that could cost you a playoff spot then you should probably wait.

Yeah, that's the issue. I am currently the 3rd seed, with the top 6 making it in but it is tight, 6 seed is 4-4 and I am 5-3. I think even if I lose next week, I'd be good. I might just wait until after Sunday's games.

Probably should sit tight, but I am itching to make a move for some reason.

I am 6-1-1 in a non PPR league. TD = 6 except QB = 4.

My TE Finley went down and luckily got Jacob Tamme to fill in the past 2 weeks.

I also lucked out and got Brandon Jackson when he was on waivers early in the season. So my starting lineup looks like this. Starter in bold.

QB: Cutler / Henne
WR: Marshall / White / Malcom Floyd / Vincent Jackson
RB: Adrian Peterson / Ronnie Brown / Marion Barber / Chester Taylor
W/R/T Flex: Brandon Jackson
TE: Jacob Tamme / Gresham
K: Neil Rackers
DEF: New England

I am looking to pick up Shonn Greene on the cheap. He has 60 FP this season and MIGHT get a bigger workload if Tomlinson breaks down later in the season. So its kind of a play for the future. So far Marshall only has 65 points. And with Vincent Jackson coming back I might be able to slide him in that spot since Marshall has been underperforming big time. I also have been considering asking him for Ricky Williams to handcuff to Ronnie Brown, and Antonio Gates, swap for Tamme and a star player.

Any ideas suggestions?

Edit: Should I focus on trying to get a better QB instead?
