    Trade Options

    I drafted the following team in a 12 team standard league: M. Ryan/J. Winston Da. Johnson, Ker. Johnson, S.Michel O. Beckham, Ant. Brown Following week 1 I have been offered a few trades from owners looking to buy low... Ive been offered Latavious Murray straight up for Kerryon Johnson - Considering this after realizing that I basically have two inconsistent "Pat Offense" backs on my team. Also offered Shady McCoy straight up for S. Michel - I have not considered this seriously but I would be willing to sweeten this deal a little and maybe try for another upgrade due to the same above reasoning. Ive never drafted a Pats back before due to the insane inconsistency as stated above but both of these guys fell to me and so I drafted them. I dont like the looks of it after week 1. Thoughts?

    Belicihick was asked if Mack compares to Lawrence Taylor

    I agree with this. EVERY team was so focused on stopping LT every single game. Nothing else mattered in pass pro. He was virtually unstoppable. He was going to sack the QB. Reggie White was similar but not to the same extent. And as a heyday Bills fan, I can say that Bruce wasn't just a longevity sack producer. He was the real deal as well. But teams couldnt focus all of their attention on Reggie or Bruce. LT was a focal point for every team. You dont see that kind of commitment today. JJ Watt is/was a force to be sure. Kalil is a great linebacker but doesnt belong in the same conversation IMO.

    D. Murray or Cohen this week PPR?

    QB help

    I dont know your scoring but I believe Rivers will be the better play this week. Unless you get significant bump for rushing yards I would go with Rivers over what appears to be a weak MIA secondary.

    Need help at Wideout this week!

    I like it. I do think he has the best matchup. Hey 1000 posts! Congrats!

    Need help at Wideout this week!

    Im a little light at receiver but Im making due with a good running game this season in my standard league. Need to start one of the following WRs..... Jarvis Landry @ Chargers Randall Cobb @ Falcons Tyrell Williams vs. Dolphins I like all three this week but am leaning toward Cobb or Williams...any help would be appreciated. Leave a link for yours.

    Benjamin or Garçon?

    Pierre is tempting with his match-up and what is perceived as a lot of potential volume but Id go Benjamin just on upside alone....if Cam is playing that is. Too much Carolina is irrelevant if you believe in both players. My 2 cents.

    Keenan Allen or Allen Robinson - PPR

    Samaje Perine

    I owned Rob Kelly last season and I agree with these assessments. I think he is a far less talented back as far as running the ball. I was unaware of Perines pass pro problems tho. That does make a big difference. I have a little wiggle room with my roster at the moment. I have 4 good RBs and can only play 3 at any one time. But there is always a big surprise WW stud in week 1 and Id hate to miss out on the action. We use a FAAB for WW....so......

    Lamar Miller or Dalvin Cook

    Yup...Ive been back and forth all week. Leaning more toward Cook but he is still unproven. Of course K.Hunt was unproven til lastnight! Im so torn over this.....I think I need to trade one.

    Hunt looks legit

    I didn't think he looked blazing fast either but that is rarely a defining trait for a quality RB in the NFL. I can live with a back being caught from behind if he is reading blocks, gaining yards after contact, and catching the ball. He showed all of those things lastnight. Hes definitely not Jamaal Charles. The only similarity is the uniform IMO.

    Samaje Perine

    I drafted this guy in 2 out of my 3 drafts this year with my final pick in hopes of some production. Ive watched a lot of tape on him and he looks like an MJD type of back to me. Anyone else high on this back? And how long should I hang onto this guy before dumping him for WW help?

    I agree with this. Even if Peterson doesn't see another carry all year I believe they give him this opportunity and he puts one in.

    Bills fan here and I hate to say it but even in a non-ppr I would play Powell.

    Whoa! The guys just offered DJ for my Rodgers and Tyreek.

    If youre saying that QBs score the same as any other position (like my standard league) then I wouldnt pull this trade. Im not a big Hill fan but this guy is basing this trade on one performance and is obviously high on him. Rodgers is a stud if Im reading your scoring correctly. DJ is obviously a premium talent but is unlikely to score as many touchdowns this season. This trade would put you light at WR also. With all that being said....this guy is high on Hill after lastnights game (he probably should be) and he knows the value of Rodgers in this league. I would counter offer this by asking for his QB....if its someone you could live with. Or have him throw in a WR. Your waiver is full of talent at QB so you could make up the difference by picking up Palmer (has a good schedule to start the year) and Luck who if he comes back healthy will be a WW steal for you. But you need to make him pay. Strike now while Hills stock is high! You need to try to get a little more on that trade though.
