So I know you were high on Chris Johnson in preseason, but how worried are you by his week 1 performance? I didn't watch the game, but from everything I've read, his line was beyond bad and he did some dancing behind the line to make things worse.

Also, in a standard scoring league, I need to start 2 WR, 2 RB and a flex from Percy Harvin, Jeremy Maclin, Pierre Garcon, Darren McFadden, Doug Martin, Darren Sproles. Who should be my guys this week?

And lastly, how would you rank Stafford, Vick, and RG3 this week?

As always, your input is greatly appreciated.

What's your opinion on Britt going forward?


It's tough to say considering we haven't seen him play with Locker yet. A lot of value comes in chemistry which Nate Washington clearly has with Jake. Nonetheless, I think Britt will be a legit #2 guy going forward. I wouldn't start him this week, but word is he should be getting a handful of snaps this week and it should be easier to evaluate him from there.

Should I bench DeMarco Murray vs the 'Hawks? I like Murray but I have doubts that he'll be able to get anything going.

My other choices would be Trent Richardson (vs CIN) or most likely Alfred Morris (vs STL)


The Hawks run defense should be among the toughest Murray faces all year, but I really don't think he's the type of guy you can sit against anyone at this point. Last year he ran for over 100 yards against Seattle so the upside is definitely there.

Just wondering, what don't you like about the Newton deal?


First of all, I think you're downgrading by going from Beanie to Helu. Next, I'd rather have Julio Jones than AJ Green. Finally, I don't see a huge difference in Vick and Newton aside from health. If you have a good #2 QB I'd rather have the upside of Julio plus an evenly talented QB.

Which Defense would you guys go with for week 2?

KC @ Bills
Browns @ Bengals
Bucs @ Gaints
Cowboys @ Seahawks
Lions @ 49ers
Raiders @ Dolphins

The bold defense are in ww for me.

I feel that it should be Bengals playing the Brown, but I'm not completely sure.


Yea, you have to go with the Bengals after what Cleveland showed this past week at home.

What do you think?


You're giving up two of your highest-valued long term options for a short term QB upgrade, an injury plagued RB, and an injury plagued WR. Not sure if that's a wise move. You're probably stuck with a struggling Newton this season, but you have to think long term in these leagues. You'll be a fine team going forward.

Extremely worried. If you're not in a PPR league, dump him while you can. He still holds value in a PPR league however. I mean, the guy got 10 points off of only 4 rushing yards in this format, so there are surely brighter days to come.

To start, it's RG3 by default. I really don't like any of their matchups, but Vick and Stafford just have brutal opponents. With the way Griffin played last week I'd be most comfortable hoping for him to defy the opposition.

Next, you obviously have to sit Garcon if he's hurt. Monitor that and if he's even questionable I'd sit him. Outside of that, you cannot sit Run DMC while he's healthy. In standard leagues, I almost always start 3 RBs, so there's your answer (even if Sproles is more of a receiver).

Two QBs that are facing semi-cozy matchups and could see their teams go up big fast. Considering the Giants have virtually no running game whereas the Texans do, I'll take the QB that plays for the team that has to air it out more times than not.

RBs were a hard choice. I took Johnson away immediately because he doesn't deserve to start over any of these guys until he proves he's worth it. Spiller is hard to sit, I'm sure, but I think he struggles much more against a defense that prepares for just him and the Chiefs run defense actually didn't look bad last Sunday. With Derrick Johnson more healthy now, I'm expecting them to calm the Spiller hype.

I love me some Kyle Rudolph, and I'm sure the Vikings will have to throw again to keep this a contest. He might be the #1 target in Minnesota when all is said and done.

Yeah, I'm having the hardest time choosing my RBs. I'm sooooo tempted to go with Spiller AND Ridley over my two first round picks of CJ and Charles. I guess it'll be a Sunday morning "go with the gut" choice.

I need a suggestion for my Flex spot this week. Heres my options:

Michael Bush vs. Green Bay

Deangelo Williams vs. New Orleans

Mike Wallace vs. New York Jets

Brandon Lloyd vs. Arizona

Ben Tate vs. Jacksonville

Right now I'm leaning towards Lloyd or Bush. But I want to know what you think about it. Its a PPR league (.50 point actually).

So in my money league, the waiver order resets every week based on record. So I had one of the lower scoring weeks and have a high waiver spot this week so how would you rank these players? I will be dropping Helu.

Kevin Ogletree
Randall Cobb
Dexter McCluster
Brandon Gibson
Knowshon Moreno

A guy on my league dropped Mendenhall. Should I try and add him?

Need 2 RB 2 WR and 2 Flex from the following:

RB - Matt Forte, Demarco Murray, BJGE, Doug Martin, Alfred Morris, Cedric Benson, David Wilson
WR - Hakeem Nicks, Eric Decker, Pierre Garcon, Titus Young, Austin Collie

Bolded are those that I'm leaning towards. If Garcon is out though, do I start Morris or BJGE?
