    It is a friend I promise. I don't take qb early enough to get tom brady. The only reason why I told him maybe the other guys is because Brady is without amendola this week. And RG3 could carve up the packers the way Kaep did and Vick looked crazy good in that new offense and they are playing the chargers.

    I was just messing with you. You could definitely make a case for one of the other guys. Either one of them could end up putting up more points than Brady. But my thing is if you went QB early enough to grab a guy like Brady you might as well start him. Regardless of who his receivers are. I don't think I could ever convince myself to sit Brady under any circumstance. You'd feel pretty stupid if you benched him then he goes all "Brady" and throws for 450 yards with 4 or 5 TDs.

    Here are mine for the week:

    QB: Luck or Vick- Luck's probably the safer bet, but I think Vick has more potential for a huge game. Especially considering they're at home against the Chargers.

    WR: Fitzgerald, Colston, Wayne, Edelman (pick 3)- Fitz and Wayne are no brainers. I'm having a tougher choice between Colston and Edelman. Both are in pass happy offenses with great QBs. Edelman had a big game last week and is guaranteed a bunch of catches, assuming Amendola is out. Colston had a TD last week and is generally tough to sit. But he's also not a very consistent fantasy player and is prone to disappear for stretches. I'm leaning Edelman on this one.

    I would go Vick and Edelman.

    Yeah you are right about Brady. The possibility with the other two were just intriguing to him so I'd figure Id ask

    Should I start two TEs this week (Jordan Cameron and Julius Thomas) or should I roll with one or the other and plug one of these players in the flex spot?

    Giovani Bernard
    Bernard Pierce
    Vick Ballard
    DeAndre Hopkins
    Kenbrell Thompkins

    I'm leaning towards starting both TEs.

    Probably the 2 TEs but I wouldn't rely heavily on Thomas. I don't trust him to get consistent production with all those other weapons.

    I was going to say Vick and Colston, but now that I realize Colston will be covered by Revis, I'd say go with Edelman... only because he will automatically be targeted a ton by Brady this week, with basically every Pats WR/TE out.

    I agree, but I don't think I can pass on him for the time being... I still prefer Cameron as my starting TE.
