    Forte has been nearly outscored by gio and spiller only 7 more points and if Sankey catches on I could be deadly with manning. I probably won't...jus kinda tempting lol

    Well, if you wanna roll with CJ Spiller over Matt Forte more power to you, but you will deeply regret it.

    Spiller was benched today for sucking so hard.

    Don't look into total points. That's where you screw yourself. I have a friend who thinks "oh man, Pierre Thomas scored 23 points this weekend, I'm gonna start him over Le'Veon Bell next week."

    Don't be that guy.

    Let me put it this way... Spiller is boom or bust. He will put up 15-20 one week and 2-5 the next week.

    Forte is a steady 10+ week in and week out. He had a couple of slow starts a few weeks back, but aside from that he's been as good as ever.

    I wouldn't do that trade either. I don't think the difference between Manning and Ryan is big enough to give up Forte.

    I wouldn't do that trade either. My only two trades that I did this year was that I traded Peyton Manning for Jordy Nelson & Matt Asiata (PPR, have Rivers as my backup qb and was weak on WR/RB), and I also traded Jimmy Graham for Calvin Johnson. (Have martellus Bennett to take his place.) A lot of trades really come down to if you have depth or want more depth in certain areas I think.

    Also, Forte is one of very few backs who has an unquestioned strangehold on his team's RB position.

    I've been trying to trade FOR Lesean Mccoy in a ton of leagues just because he's a buy low option and has been sucking..He's still gonna be the guy that gets 75% of the carries and he's not over the hill yet. Some people give up on people too easily when they're a top 5/10 guy at their position.

    If ever there were a week to start him I guess this would be it. Just know it's totally a boom or bust scenario. He doesn't really make a lot of catches so if he doesn't hit the big play he's pretty much worthless.

    I'd probably play V Jax if it were me but there's really no hands down best option in that group. Go with your gut.
