I'm kind of in the same situation except my record is much worse. I have Fiedorowicz and Clay (who I'm done with). Witten is actually available in my league so I'm going there. Both Gates and Ebron are owned.

Gates. Nice matchup and still heavily targeted by P.Rivers. Claim is definitely warranted (vs. waiting for open waivers) since Reed & Gronk are out this week, too.

If they're that valuable, is it worth punting a week? Depending on the options out there, you might be doing that anyway if you're starting garbage at RB

It's a competitive 12 team league, the only league I really care a lot about. High school friends so you know how that goes. I guess the rest of the team is set, Rivers/Prescott is OK at QB but my running backs and receivers are all set. Probably should go with Gates because I have Rivers but I still think Ebron will have a big second half despite some tough matchups and a bye on the horizon. I have Riddick too so that kind of complicates things.

I'm 8-0 and can totally punt. Might have to, as I would be dropping Corey Coleman and Quincy Enunwa. Well, only one of them, as I would also likely dump Robert Kelley back to waivers after being my hero on Sunday.

Looking to pick up CJ Prosise and then a second back TBNL. Would you drop Coleman or Enunwa?

Cool that's what I'm gonna do. Hoping Ladarius Green gets on the field but I have to put a claim in on Gates for this week.

I would drop Coleman. Then I'd add West if you can since Charles is still out and Ware is under concussion protocol right now. Prosise is a good choice too

Y'all think Robert Kelley is going to keep those carries over Matt Jones? I still may need to drop another guy (have Lamar/Gio/Kelley on bye and AD/Dougie hurt).

I have Cameron Brate and Ladarius Green, but should I drop Brate for any of Gates, Ertz, Ebron? I am thinking no, but maybe Ebron.

KC signed Bishop Sankey. Most likely still a scrub but anybody really starving for RBs can probably find him on the wire.

I think Coleman is the more likely candidate to sneak by on the wire for a week. But he's also the more likely to have a big day and be a top add. Personally, I think missed time, a hand injury, and the potential for lack of chemistry with the QB makes him a safe drop. Obviously, keeping him would be preferable, but fielding a proper roster is important, too.

No idea. He seemed decent enough and ball protection is important. But a bye week could be more than enough for Matt Jones to get out of the dog house.

It's tough to argue against Gates when the Chargers offense is top 10 in passing yards and he's the seasoned and trusted vet in that passing attack. Gates is seeing increased targets of the last 3 weeks while Brate's have decreased. ROS may be a different answer since Gates is old and more likely to break down, but right now the choice is easy. Brate isn't likely to fly off the wire, either.

I am thinking the same thing. Brate isn't anything special.

Do I keep my #4 waiver and start Ryan Mathews @ NYG or use it on some order of Tim Hightower, Charcandrick West, Antone Smith & Derick Henry?

dropping Cordarelle Patterson, random add after dropping CJ Anderson

Any insight on this Falcons TE who is starting Thursday? I just picked him up and might start him. My TE situation is awful.

I would drop the shit out of Mathews if I were you, I just did

West could have a nice game this week but I think Hightower has a bigger role for the rest of the season FWIW

Is JJ Nelson worth an add? My receivers are Antonio Brown, Fitz, Alshon, and Montgomery with dual eligibility. Thinking about dropping Bibbs for him, one handcuff for another but I'm thinking Nelson will have a role.

I just have such a hard time benching Cam. This is a tough one, and Mariota has been on fire but like...Cam. And a TD to Olsen is super yummy. Rams run a lot of cover 2, IIRC, and Olsen could have a field day.

If it's PPR and your situation is super terrible, you can do much worse than a starting TE

Nelson can't hurt and I doubt Bibbs has a lasting role. Although, it's tough to have a handcuff for a WR, IMO.

ALSO : any ideas on a streaming defense this week? Was thinking Jets against the phins...or I could go Phins against the Jets. A lot of weird matchups out there. Steelers against Ravens?

Ok cool...would you take Corey Coleman or Nelson?

And if the Steelers D is available, that's who I would go with

Personally, nelson. Just because I can't trust anything Browns related. Although Coleman has a higher ceiling, Nelson has a higher floor, IMO.
