PPR league....... k jones or l.white?
Good morning everyone! I would use Jones, who has a tendency to catch more passes out of the backfield
Hi Scott, This has been eating at me all week. Would yoo go with Bulger in a good matchup against Cleveland or stick with Brees vs the Niners? Thank you!!!
Bulger has not played well enough to consider the matchup - Brees
Good morning Scott...thinking of offering C. Palmer for R. Wayne. Yay or nay?
That's fair, and a good move if you need WR help and have another top QB
Been offered LJ and L. Evans for Gore and Holt. Do I make this deal? Trade deadline is Sunday. Thanks Scott!
I would not want Evans - I would not make the trade
Any Word on Jamal Lewis?
He is still iffy - we should know more later today - if he can practice without issue today, he will be a go for Sunday
Braylon Edwards vs Anquan Boldin --- who do you like more for the rest of the year?
Edwards - Boldin has admitted he may not be 100 pct for the rest of the year
I'm so tired of Colston. Someone dropped Branch when he was injured, should I drop Colston to pick him up?
I would do that - Branch should return after the bye
I've been offered Marshawn Lynch for Derek Anderson and Warrick Dunn. Should I do it? Can Anderson keep it up all year? Thanks.
I would doi t just to get Lynch as long as you have another good option at QB
Is there anybody that I should look to trade Shaun Alexander for? I am getting really fed up with him.
He doesn't have much trade value right now and you will get frustrated trying to unload him
Any chance youd ever play both Jordan at RB and Rhodes at Flex in a PPR league??? I know I am giving up a roster spot, but wouldn't I also be guaranteeing a TD?
No, because the Raiders could score only maybe two TDs and they could both be passes - plus, neither RB is playing well lately
I'm try to get my mind off of the world series. Need two of three: Bush, Lynch, Jacobs. All good matchups but need a win this week.
I would go with Jacobs and Lynch - the latter is really coming into the best part of his sked
Would you start Carson Palmer or Jeff Garcia this weekend?
I would go with Palmer - he has played well against the Steelers before
What do you think about the seahawks defense from here on out? Are they as good as they showed last week?
I think they are overrated - they give up a lot of yardage, especially on third downs
Time to drop Norwood or is he going to get more touches in Atlanta?
I don't see him getting more touches anytime soon, so drop him if you have to
Is it safe to start Torry Holt and/or Steven Jackson this week? I have Kevin Walter and Jesse Chatman as alternates, and I don't know whether to trust that Rams O-Line yet.
Holt will continue to catch a lot of balls and is more trustworthy than Walter, and Jackson is well-rested and I take him over Chatman
I understand that teams withhold injury info to not tip their hands, but 2 weeks ago Andre Johnson sounded as if he was on the verge of returning, now he is practicing (limited fashion however) and Kubiak already ruled him out for this week. Is it possible his injury is worse then what they are saying and he has a partially torn ACL?
I think they are being careful with him and you really can't read anything more into it - they don't want to rush him back when he is not ready, and that's a good approach
Scott. You ranked Favre 5 spots below Griese this week. How come? Big Ben put up 4 TDs against Denver last week.
If Champ Bailey is back that will not be the case this week - and Griese faces Detroit
Maroney or K. Jones?
Jones - much better chance of a TD and less likely to share carries
I've been offered Addai & Driver or A. Peterson (MIN) & Coles for LT. We score 1 point per recption and I am in need of some WR help as my top 3 WR are currently: TO, Dallas Clark, and B. Stokely. My other RBs are T. Jones, LaMont, and Chatman. Are either of these offers enough to let LT go considering my bench?
I would keep Tomlinson and see if you can improve your team through other routes
Does Shaun Alexander improve after the bye?
I can't offer any reassurance that he will.
This decision has been driving me crazy all week!! Big Ben or Griese, they both have good match-ups which makes it a hard choice. Also #3 WR: Ward or Colston? Thanks for the help!
I would expect less turnovers from Roethlisberger - Ward for sure
i've been offered brees for l. jordan. i need some help at qb. should i take this?
Sure, if it fills the need for you
Your advice is invaluable Scott. For the remainder of the year, would you cut Lamont to pick up K. Jones?
Thanks Mark - I would cut someone else to get Jones, because you can't depend on him to stay healthy
MJD or LenDale in a PPR league?
If Jones-Drew is definitely a go, I would use him for sure over White
Can you depend on Jordan to stay healthy though??
No, but if you have both at least you have more depth and injury insurance
When do you see Ben Watson coming back? No one is talking about this ankle injury. Is it more serious?? Who do I put in for him? Brady or Owen Daniels?
The Patriots are very cryptic on injuries, unfortunately. I would use Daniels until he returns
I just traded L. Jordan, Maroney and Galloway to the first place team for R. Moss....i think i won this trade.....did i?
I think you ripped the other guy off, sorry. You stacked quantity for quality and I would have never accepted that deal if I had Moss. If I was commish, I would have overturned it
Is Alexander for Chatman a trade that can be vetoed?
No - Chatman has really done nothing to establish himself as a firm starter yet
I own Maroney, should I pick up Sammy Morris for insurance, even though he is injured? Thanks
Morris is not reallya handcuff - they share carries when both are healthy - Morris' return date is unclear and I would only add him if you truly had extra room on your roster
Scott, who do I go with at my flex; Chris Henry (Titans) or Calvin Johnson. Normally I would say Calvin in a heartbeat but I like the matchup for Henry.
Henry is not going to get quality touches for sure, so I would stick with Johnson
Addai/Keith for Mcgahee/L White? What side do you prefer?
Fair deal - as long as the side getting Addai has another RB they can start, it works fine
Why would it be overturned....if someone accepts something shouldnt they be responsible for there decisions? We are all grown men....if you make a bad investment and lose $100,000 should you get your money back? You made the move.....your the only fantasy expert who always says that you would veto trades....why?
Because I believe that some deals are no good for the integrity of the league. As a commish, it's my job to help ensure competitive balance. Maybe you disagree and that's fine. Most deals in my league pass through with no issue - it's not like am regularly vetoing deals. But when something is obviously lopsides, I do what I must.
Marvin Harrison still a must start? Starting to wonder.
That all depends on what your other options are - certainly not a lock as a No. 1 WR right now
Scott, McGahee and R. Moss for Adrian Peterson and Andre Johnson; fair deal? A couple of managers are insisting the team receiving A. Peterson is ripping off the team receiving Moss but I don't see it at all.
That trade is a little bit unbalanced, but if both owners can make the case it fills needs for them, you can let it ride
Scott, I want in one of your leagues next season. I think I can beat you!
Sorry, no openings :)
Lost Ronnie Brown last week. I have LJ, Lamont, TJones, and Chatman. Think I should be ok? I have Crayton, Jennings, L Evans, Mark Clayton at WR. Should I try to deal a RB for a WR before deadline or hold? .5PPR, 2RB, 2WR, 1 flex. Thanks Scott!
I think you know what you need to do and are just asking for approval - go ahead and follow your instincts - you know what you are doing, obviously.
which QB out of Garcia, Big Ben, and Brees would you look to deal to get some WR help
I would want to keep Roethlisberger - Brees still has name value and he is the one I would shop
I'm trying to acquire LJ and I'm offering Griese and Alexander (hard to move). Eli would get me LJ but I'm trying to hold on to him. How do LJ and Griese fare the rest of the season?
That is not enough to get LJ, and if it takes Eli to get him, go for it. LJ is a clear upgrade over Alexander and Griese will continue to post respectable fantasy numbers
Deshawn Wynn or Julius Jones?
I would go with Wynn, who has a better chance of scoring
I submit every week and have never had a message posted - Pitt Defense or Indy Defense ... Should it matter that I am playing Carson Palmer as my QB and thinking to get the points out of my D when he turns the ball over.
We get a lot of questions,a nd unfortunately, so many are asked there is no way to answer them all - you can use Answer Guys for a definite answer - we are not intentionally overlooking you and get to as many questions as possible. I would never bench Pittsburgh, and benching them won't control how Palmer performs one way or the other - it will also prevent you from losing points when he turns it over
Trade happening in five minutes!! I get Edge for Welker and Crayton. Good news or bad news?
I would keep Welker if I was only getting an OK but not outstanding RB like Edge
What is Chris Chamber's value? I have been offered Chambers for S. Alexander. I know Alexander has slumped, but if Chambers isn't really going to play ahead of my other WRs(D. Driver, S. Holmes, J. Cotchery, S. Moss play 2), I think I'd rather sit Alexander on my bench and wait for him to possibly turn it around. (my other RBs: M. Lynch, L. Jordan, J. Chatman, V. Morency) Your thoughts?
Chambers is certainly no guarantee to produce consistently even with a new team - I would rather hold onto Alexander
With Romo on a Bye - use Griese or Bulger?
Griese for sure - Bulger has looked awful and is a very risky start even with a friendly-looking matchup
Romo for Edge....fair deal?
Yes, not overturnable, but if I had Romo I would think I could do better in a trade
Should I trade Alexander for Gore? I'm thinking so.
Gore's owner might not take Alexander from you - if he does, go for it, but I would be surprised
should i trade adrian peterson for marsall lynch? Because of the schedule and maybe he has lost his fire or will ?! i mean you are the pro so can you help me out ?
I would keep Peterson - I think he will continue to perform very well, even in some tough matchups
Defense Question. I have Jax D vs. Tampa Bay. Should I roll the dice and drop them for Oakland?
No - Jacksonville is simply the better unit
Benson or T Jones
Benson - better chance of a TD run, especially against Detroit
Scott, Trade Alert! Kenton Keith for Travis Henry or Jamal Lewis. They have Addai and want a handcuff. What do you think?
I would rather get Henry if you are the one with Keith
Hi Scott, Should I consider DeShawn Wynn, DeShawn Foster, or Chatman over an injured Travis Henry for this week? Thanks!
I would use Chatman for decent, but not great numbers Thanks a lot everyone! Next chat at 3 pm ET - or consult the Answer Guys!
