    Would you guys do Doug Martin/Chris Johnson and Nelson/Decker for Lynch and Tony Gonzalez? I have Matt Ryan so that would be a nice combo. I don't mind trading Nelson while he's hot but a little hesitant to give up CJ who might be getting it together but I may be a bit biased. Martin seems to be improving and getting more touches so maybe dealing CJ would be the right move. I honestly prefer to dump Nelson rather than Decker. Decker seems to be Manning's go to guy (more consistent than Nelson at least) and Nelson gets most of his points off a handful a big games a season. Thoughts?

    Chris Johnson is about to blow up in FF. We face a bunch of crappy run defenses going forwards.

    I'd do it in a heartbeat. Gonzo is the #1 fantasy TE. And Lynch is 3rd in the league in rushing yards. And like you, I'd move Nelson before Decker.

    JCB could be right that CJ is "about to" blow up. But I wouldn't bet more than a pack of gum on it (and none of that gum in the fancy packaging either, I'm talking 5 pieces of Big Red). He's had 2 decent games and 4 god awful ones. And zero TDs to boot.

    Gonzo and Lynch are much more steady/reliable players than Nelson and CJ/Martin. And for that reason, I'd much rather have them on my roster than a very streaky player (Nelson) and a guy who "might" blow up (CJ). Just my two cents.

    He's gotta be in like a 4-team league. I was in one last year. A friend of mine started it and flaked on getting it filled/opening it up to public. It was crazy seeing all the big names in the FA pool. Plus the regular season had zero impact as everyone made the playoffs regardless. LOL

    I've done a 10 team league and that was fun, lots of good players to pick up.

    That's what I'm thinking and the guy might prefer Martin anyway.

    Agreed. I'll try and move Martin and Nelson. I think CJ can start putting a few games together and Decker has been more consistent. I'm 4-1-1 right now (I tied because Ryan lost 2 points after a play change). So I'm not trying to change my team too much but I'm dying for a RB.
