    WRs are Calvin, AJ Green and Edelman. So Boykin should be an upgrade over Edelman. I'm thinking I could just roll with Calvin, AJ and then Boykin in the flex. Then I'd only have to start two of my mediocre RBs each week.

    I think I'm going to to drop Powell. I have no chance in this league anyway. No need in overthinking it.

    I actually have a decent team in this league. I seriously can't believe I'm winless.

    QB: RG3, Wilson, Vick
    RB: Murray, CJ, Deangelo, Bell, Powell
    WR: Calvin, AJ Green, Edelman
    TE: Julius Thomas, Gates
    K: Who cares
    DEF: Kansas City, Tennessee

    Wait, why do you have two defenses?... especially when you have KC. Never much need for two TEs either unless you can play them both.

    Definitely no need for 3 QBs.

    I think the problem here is that you did not attempt to make trades... you could've traded Vick after a couple weeks. You had to know he'd get hurt. I would suggest trying to trade for a RB since you have no chance as it is right now. RG3 is gaining value and this might be the time to trade him... or after the Denver game because he should put up a lot of points in that one.

    But yea, I have a hard time believing you could be struggling with that team.

    why does everyone hate on kickers lol

    Gould has gotten me 10+ points every week. Not 'amazing' but if I got 10 points from everyone every week I'd be unstoppable.

    Hauschka is my MVP. lol

    It's best to get kickers from teams with great defenses IMO... because chances are those teams have a lot of drives stall in field goal range (hopefully long field goals).

    However, Prater is the best kicker to have this year. They score 5-6 TDs a game, so that's 5-6 points just from PATs. And he can make FGs from 65 yards if he needed to. He won me a game earlier in the season with a couple of long FGs and several PATs.

    yea, go after a high powered offense or a strong defensive team.

    I dropped Zuerlein in all my leagues I had him this week... because the Rams are going to be absolutely pathetic moving forward.

    Also, I never understand why so many people take Janikowski... he's terrible for FF these days. No consistency because the Raiders blow.

    I have two DEF only because I have two very good ones so I figured I'd just play the best matchup each weeks. I've been trying to trade Gates for weeks now but no one is biting. If I can't work something out after Julius Thomas' bye week I'll probably just drop Gates.

    As for the QBs, I originally had RG3 and Wilson. There was a period of a few weeks where they were both underperforming and costing me games so I traded for Vick, planning to cut Wilson. But, my luck, Vick got injured in the first game after I made the trade. I'm going to drop one of them soon (Wilson or Vick). I wanna see how Vick does after coming back from the injury before deciding though.

    Tough calls here.

    PIT defense (@ OAK) or GB (@ MIN)?
    -- Leaning Green Bay because the Steelers have been a useless FF defense for a long time now - even when they shut teams down, they have almost no FF value.

    Pick two of these RBs: Stevan Ridley (MIA), Fred Jackson (@ NO), Darren Sproles (BUF) Giovani Bernard (NYJ).
    -- I'm back and forth between Ridley/Sproles and Ridley/Jackson. I can't make up my mind. Since it's not PPR, conventional wisdom would say I should choose Jackson, but I feel like he's about to have a letdown game as the Bills will get blown out in NO and abandon the run game early.

    Really need some input here if possible. Thanks!

    GB, for the reasons you said above. I also believe that the wheels are about to come off in MSP.

    Jackson and Sproles.

    I think Jackson has put up double digit points in all games this year except for last week.

    I'm going Sproles over Ridley and Bernard because I do not like their matchups, especially Ridley. If you are not comfortable with Jackson, then go Bernard. The Pats playing MIA, along with Ridley being a Patriot, just spells inconsistency.
