Tell your league manager. He can do it for you.

Also, I'd hold onto Gore. Don't give up on him yet. He looks like he is having trouble coming back from the hip injury, but I think he will turn it around.

I asked him.

We can only have 3 running backs on our roster and I have Gore, Ray Rice, and Darren Sproles. I'll give Gore a week or two more...maybe.

EDIT: Realized it's a LM league so the setting can be changed if the league manager decides to. I still think it's a stupid rule.
I would start Sproles until Gore showed me something. I have Gore in my money league and I haven't started him once, and I have horrible running backs in that league.

Fitzpatrick @ CIN
Rivers vs MIA

Rivers has been a beast for a long time but he has a issue with his sternum and I'm thinking it's time to put in the hot hand. What do ya'll think?

Rivers looked fine week 1 & 2. Last week was an aberration in my opinion. I'd still start Rivers.

Definitely Rivers. Miami's pass defense is horrible. Cincy's D actually isn't as bad as I thought they would be by now.

Blount for sure. I have Jackson myself, but will probably sit him. Just picked up San Francisco RB Kendall Hunter with Gore doubtful.

Fitzpatrick is on fire, while San Diego (Rivers) are in disarray.

Through 3 games, Cincy has the 3rd best defense overall, and Miami has the third worst defense overall. Cincy 5th best passing D, Miami 29th best. I'd play the matchup and take Rivers @ home over Fitzy @ Cincy. I love playing the matchups myself

I'd go with Blount for sure, and Jackson if he's healthy. Otherwise McGahee over Addai IMO.

Is Colston even playing? I thought he was out another 2 weeks. In any case, I'd go with Meachum and Green over Bryant. Bills D has looked bad so far, but not great against the pass. Detroit has a better pass defense, likely due to all the pressure from the front 7. I expect them to roll over the Cowboys and knock Romo out of the game

Miami has played NE, Hou, and Cle
Cincinnati has played Denver, SF, and Cle.

I don't know how much weight I can put into the Bengals 5th ranked passing defense considering who they have played.

Should have started Vincent Jackson! Damn! Dez Bryant got me some points though, so it's not all bad.

I started Tate over Beanie Wells because I thought Wells would sit again. Of course Wells goes off. However, I still won due to a large showing by Jordy Nelson, Drew Brees, Ray Rice, and Julio Jones, and Jimmy Graham. Currently 4-0 in my league.

I think Williams and Moore are your best bet. McCluster vs Indy is tempting though.

Yeah man, Rivers is a top 5 NFL QB. You start him every week no questions asked IMO.

I love Rivers, I've had him on my teams for years but it's tough to keep starting him when he is currently sitting right behind Tarvaris Jackson and Alex Smith in fantasy points.

He has 5 TD's and 6 INT's right now and that's against an extremely soft pass defense schedule. The teams he has played rank 17th, 28th, 30th, and 32 defending the pass.

I'm giving him the nod this week but I'm starting to wonder if something is wrong with Philip Rivers.
