I'd play Berrian. I'm not sure Harvin can think straight.

He "should" be fine, and he is way too talented not to play imo.

I really wanna throw Dez out there and I'm leaning towards sitting Nicks.
Playing Dez without watching him take an NFL snap yet? And he won't start either and coming back from injury? Big time risk. I'd go with the other three.

I might be tempted to go with Foster and Grant, Jets run D is scary. Boldin, Harvin, Knox.

Spiller is definitely an option as well, I was lucky enough to pick him up in the ninth round of my money league. That was the night before he had his National coming out party with 2 TD's catapulting him up to the 4th 5th round. I'm going to wait at least one game before I name him my starter though. I wanna see what he can do in the regular season before I make any decisions.

Funny thing though, I have Grant, Foster, and Spiller in my money league so I guess great minds think alike. I'm starting Grant and Foster.

Zach Miller who looks like he will play but how well after the injury is the question or Aaron Hernandez? I just can't decide and you guys gave great advice last week.

I drafted the Krog then realized Aaron would get majority of targets so swapped TE's. But Brady likes to spread it around, like Brees, to the point your player might not even see any targets so dropped him too. go with a simple offense that gives its TE decent looks every week even if they are only average, go after consistancy & avoid hit & miss.

Miller if he plays. Another guy you could grab off the ww this week is Jimmy Graham. Don't be surprised if he blows up for NO with Shockey out.

Any suggestions of a good TE with a simple offense?

Think this week is a good week to pick him up and start him? Miller is questionable. Was terrible last week too.

Yes, he has won the trust of both Brees and Payton. They've been hyping this kid since the preseason as a big time playmaker and he is now beginning to emerge as a favorable target for Brees. Get him now before he becomes the next Tamme.

Well as many of you know, I was the fortunate individual that traded FOR Frank Gore last week at the trade deadline only to have him get injured for the season in his first game on my team. Terrible.

But I quickly went out and signed his replacement, Brian Westbrook, and need help with who to start.

We start two RBs, two WRs, and a flex.

My must starts are Arian Foster, Jamaal Charles, and Calvin Johnson. Guys fighting for a starting spot are Brian Westbrook, Wes Welker, Maurice Morris, and Marques Colston.

So the positions I need help at are flex and 1 WR. I can either go WR at both positions and put Welker and Colston out there. Or I can split it and start either Welker or Colston at WR and put a RB at flex.

What would you do? Thanks!!! Rep to all you that give suggestions.

I think you have to look at the match ups.

Morris going against Chicago- not a good option
Colston going against Cinci- Must start
Welker going against the Jets- doesn't feel good
Westbrook going against the Pack- iffy, but could be the type of player that causes GB problems.

I think I would go with Colston and Westbrook...


GL in whatever you decide.
