    Trying to get a guy to trade me McCoy and Brady for Romo and doug martin. He hates brady but he doesn't seem like he is going to do it

    That trade is fair but I love Gordon but like you said he does play for the Browns so that is a tough one for me

    My first thought was Cincy, but GB is a huge matchup.......



    I think I would go with Cincy still. MSP isn't starting Freeman and they do still have AP.....either way, seems like a win/win.

    Yea, the whole Freeman thing made it harder. If he was starting, I would go with GB no doubt.

    But Geno Smith is god awful against good defenses... and the Bengals have a good D. So I think I'll roll with them.

    I'm desperate for a win in one league so I'm thinking about grabbing Boykin while he's still available. Question is, who should I drop? Bilal Powell or Joique Bell. A week ago it would've been an easy decision, Bell. But in week 8 Powell only got 3 carries while Chris Ivory got 34. Powell has been the lead back for weeks but now I'm worried Ivory will overtake him. Bell still has value, although limited, even playing second fiddle to Reggie Bush. But I want no part of the #2 guy in the Jets backfield.

    I'm kinda leaning toward dropping Powell but I'd hate to drop him and then week 7 turns out to be an anomaly and he goes back to being the lead guy. I've actually got Bell in my lineup over Powell at this point. Ideally I wouldn't be using either one of these guys, but I have CJ on a bye and Murray is hurt.

    I would probably drop Powell just because I'd think Reggie will miss a game or two somewhere down the road and Bell could be useful.

    I expect a pretty even split between Powell and Ivory from here on out.

    It really all depends on your depth, I guess. Do you have another viable option at RB on the bench?

    It's a tough call, but you would be wise to get Boykin over either one of them. He'll be the #2 or #3 target for the rest of the season in Green Bay.

    My RBs are Murray (injured), CJ (on a bye, and sucking), Deangelo (meh), Powell, Bell. Once Murray is healthy he and CJ will be my starters. But as for this week I am forced to roll with Deangelo and then either Powell/Bell.

    You're in a better situation than I am, sadly enough - at least in the money league we have here.

    That's a really tough call though, so I'd say go with your gut. But definitely pick up Boykin... who are your WRs?
