    I know where you're coming from. I have CJ in a league and considered benching him. Tired of hoping that "this is the week". That said, I decided to give him ONE MORE WEEK. lol As much as I'd hate for him to have another single-digit fantasy week, I'd hate even more to have stuck with him for 4 weeks and then watch him blow up on my bench. If he doesn't do much this week, he's going to be relegated to mere flex option from now on.

    Okay, I need some trade advice. This is my main league and I'm 0-4. My QBs are RG3 and Russell Wilson. I'm about sick of RG3 but I do want to hold onto him because I think he'll get on track soon. Anyway, my buddy has offered me Vick in exchange for Antonio Brown. I also have Calvin, AJ Green and Edelman. So I wouldn't really miss Brown much.

    The only thing that worries me is Vick isn't really very much more reliable than RG3 at this point. I'm afraid I'd end up in a situation where I'm playing musical chairs with QB each week. And I'd really like to just have one guy I can start with confidence each week. Another option is I could try to swing a trade for Stafford. He'd be a guy you can just roll with and come out pretty good most weeks. He's not going to have the huge games very often but he is consistently going to score in the mid-20's. Which is more than I can say for RG3, Wilson, or Vick.

    So what do I do... A) Vick, B) Stafford, C) stick with what I got and keep A. Brown???

    Is Rivers available?

    If not, grab Vick and start him against weaker D's

    I think I am gonna go with Moreno just based on matchup and the fact that manning is the qb so there will definetly be no stacked box. I also think the dallas d is weaker than KC. I expect KC to focus on our running game. I play in a league with 2 rb's and my other rb is forte so I am ok with that

    I vote for A. I think the eagles get back on track and they play a lot vs the nfc least so there is hope there. RG3 will get back to himself at some point this season but he came back way to early IMO

    Nope. Rivers not available. I almost grabbed him last week but I wanted to give RG3 one more chance. Then someone else ended up snatching him.

    You're probably making the right call. I'm (foolishly) going to stick with CJ one more week though.

    I wouldn't call it foolish because every time cj touches the ball, there is potiential for a big game. He played well vs the texans and the jets d is tough. I have gone back and forth on cj and most likely will until game time but I am sticking with Moreno for now. Our O line too is having issues, another reason why I may bench cj

    I still find it hard to believe I am starting a browns qb on my roster this week.

    Need some advice ASAP (i.e. before tonight's game)...

    In one of my league's I'm forced to start either Joique Bell or Fred Jackson. Let's assume CJ Spiller isn't playing tonight because if he is I'm probably rolling with Bell. Anyway, Jackson has a brutal matchup this week but he has been getting it done, with or without Spiller. The only reason I'm saying I'd start Bell if Spiller plays is because at that point I just think Fred has too many factors going against him.... splitting carries... going against a tough defense... short week.... a bit banged up.
