I guess the question is which lineup looks better.

QB: Philip Rivers
RB: Arian Foster
RB: Frank Gore
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Marques Colston
D/ST: Packers D
K: Sebastian Janikowski

OR

QB: Philip Rivers
RB: Arian Foster
RB: Steven Jackson
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Mike Wallace
D/ST: Packers D
K: Sebastian Janikowski

Rep to all those that contribute and give their opinions.

I'm still going to recommend Gore/Colston over Jackson/Wallace.

It's close, but I will go with my gut.

If you are pretty much a lock to make the playoffs, check each players week 15/16 matchups. It can make a huge difference if you can get someone playing the Texans week 15 to help you go the Super Bowl...

Dont people usually have a trade deadline to prevent teams out of it to dump players?

Yes. Ours was today. Thanks for all the advice guys. I made the trade for Frank Gore. Happy with it since it was just announced that Bradshaw is no longer the starter.

Sorry for the late response, but that is a good trade. Had I not been late to the party I would've recommended jumping all over it because a Foster/Gore RB duo will prove deadly to your opponents, especially in ppr leagues.

You better get on the wire and grab Westbrook now, Gore is done for the season with a broken hip.

I played a dude that had Gore this week, while I have Foster and Hillis. The opponent cursed himself asking for Foster and Hillis' ACLs to be snapped prior to last week's games. God bless Fantasy karma.

Yeah, it hurts. Granted, I would have been better keeping Bradshaw than getting Jackson. Jackson has been terrible this year.

Are you claiming that injury was foreseeable?

Next year Frank Gore will have the dreaded Ronnie Brown status. Too much injury risk.

Yeah, no way of telling who is going to get injured. Gore would have gone for 200 yards easily had he stayed in the game.

This is why I am done with Fantasy Football.

Because unforeseen things like Gore's injury just lets all the air out of the tires.

I mean, I know you guys will roast me for coming here and saying this, but I can't resist it. Like a moth to the flame, so to speak.

So much "work" gets put into shaping your roster, and then dumb things like this happen. Hours of planning, strategizing, and then BAM! it was all for nothing.

Still, I can understand why some people can remain undeterred and actually embrace and love all of these sorts of things that drive me absolutely bonkers.

The best league I have ever been in? The one where you draft all starters AND your bench players, whom you also drafted, also get THEIR points counted every week. It beats having to make roster decisions every week. Once you got your team drafted, it's on auto-pilot unles you want to make some tweaks here and there. But at least it allows you to have more than just your starters' points count.

In years' past, I had a strong bench but could never capitalize on it. Now, this year's league makes it possible.

This is why you have to build a deep, strong team. I am still starting Arian Foster and Jamaal Charles so I still feel good about my chances. Wes Welker is FINALLY starting to turn things around a bit so I can put him at the flex or #2 WR, and I went out and jumped on Brian Westbrook as soon as I heard about the injury. I also have Maurice Morris and LeGarrette Blount at RB. Sure, it isn't the same as starting Foster, Gore, and Charles every week, but this is how the cookie crumbles.

It was still a great trade that I worked out. Just sucks that my first game with Gore has to end with him injured for the season. Ouch...

Yeah, I saw that broken hip coming also... those foot problems lead to that everytime, right?
