    jackson has been a solid 10 points in every game he has played, you cant say that about the other two.

    I would go with sproles and jackson. Jackson has been solid this year and sproles will always get you points especially with the saints going against a NE defense that has been hit and miss.

    I'd probably go Jackson and Bernard.

    Okay I need to fill 1 WR and 1 FLEX, with these guys....

    Larry Fitz, Boldin, F Jackson, G Bernard.

    I have Colston starting in the first WR spot. So I need to decide between Fitz and Boldin for the other spot. If Fitz wasn't banged up and underperforming this would be a no-brainer.

    Then in the FLEX I can either start the 3rd WR or Jax/Bernard. I'm thinking I'd rather go with one of the RBs. And I'm leaning Jackson. I know the matchup is brutal on paper, but the guy has put up double-digit point each and every week so I just don't see how I can bench him right now.

    The only problem is you just lost good depth in a four for two trade like that. I think all the players you traded are very good flex options, the same for Sproles and Bernard. I would have sat CJ this week and maybe next but after the bye CJ will be a great starter. I don't really like any of the other guys you traded away, but I would have tried to get a third player in return.

    This should finally be the year everyone realizes CJ is 4-5th round fantasy player who is matchup based, just like Sproles. You just can't play CJ every single week.

    I decided to roll with Bernard/Sproles. Fred Jackson will be seeing 9 in the box all day. Bengals will take away the run and force Buffalo's scrub backup to throw.

    CJ and MJD are unstartable... There's no flex spot in this league either. I will be fine with my main RBs as Jackson, Bernard (who's getting more snaps every week), and Sproles... all because I have Peyton + Demaryius, Torrey Smith, and Josh Gotdon as my WRs.

    Just got offered a trade... Should I trade away Josh Gordon and Darren Sproles for
    Ray Rice and T.Y. Hilton?

    It's a pretty fair trade, but Rice and Hilton are so inconsistent, and Gordon has been very consistent - but he plays for the Browns and has Weeden throwing to him, so at the same time that scares me.

    I just counter-offered him Gonzalez, Sproles, and Ridley for Gronk and Lacy... unless he's a big Gonzo fan I doubt he'd go for it.
