    Romo was my main QB.

    I picked up Gradkowski to get me through the Cowboys bye & he's still on my roster. I can pick up Kitna for free. I'm probably going to do that anyway.

    I'm thinking Cassell might get hot, & I'm going to try to pick him up on waivers.

    Got a guy offering to give me Big Ben for Peyton Hillis.

    I can start three Running backs or three Recievers. I've got:
    Peyton Hillis, Thomas Jones, Ray Rice, LeSean McCoy, Ryan Torain, Justin Forsett & Julius Jones.

    Anquan Boldin, Brandon Lloyd, Malcom Floyd, Pierre Garcon & OchoCinco.

    Take that shit. You need a good QB to win, and you still have two good backs in McCoy and Rice, and a bevy of receivers. Pull the trigger!

    Agreed.

    But why do you want Kitna & Cassell? How many qb's can you start?

    Id take it, too. Roethlisberger will be on the field a lot with the Steelers defense playing like they have been, and he will put up more points on a consistent basis than anyone else you could probably get. Hillis is a good back but I probably wouldn't start him over Mccoy/Rice if it came down to it, and Boldin has been putting up points, so there are your three.

    I'd more than likely start one or the other depending on the match-ups

    I'm countering Hillis for the Titans D..... if he turns me down, I'll take the Rothlisberger deal.

    What? Are you serious? You're trading for the Titans defense? They still have to play us and Indy 2x each

    QB is one of the most important positions and Big Ben is a top 10 guy

    I'm also trying to trade Brandon Lloyd for Matt Ryan.....

    He might want Garcon or Ocho.... who knows, but I think I'll be able to get Ryan.

    Really? But Lloyd has been money this year. A top 5 WR. Ryan is worth less than lloyd imo

    Next to nothing the last two weeks..... I'm thinking the Lloyd bubbles about to pop, trying to cash in.

    I think you may be over-thinking things a bit. IMO the Hillis for Ben is your best bet.

    Unless you just like making trades for the sake of making trades...


    and there's nothing wrong with that! :D

    I would think it would be a no brainer, unless it is a keeper league.

    Take the Big Ben trade and try to land Cassel off waivers.

    Don't give up on Lloyd yet, in the last two games he has gone up against Cromartie and Asomugha and he still managed 120 yards.

    Never trade for a defense.

    Not even the #1 defense? The Titans are #1 in my league.

    There is not a big enough difference in defenses over the season to make that trade worthwhile.

    Lloyd's injured and looks to be sitting another week at least.

    Exactly. Maybe if the defense was packaged with somebody or if you were just giving up a run of the mill type player but Hillis is the number 6 RB in the league, and the number 11 overall fantasy player (at least in my money league). I wouldn't trade him for the 85 Bears defense.

    Not sure where your getting this, there's nothing on espn, rotoworld, yahoo, etc. And what do you mean by another week? He hasn't missed a game this season.
