    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein would be a great pick-up for anyone with a kicker on a bye week. Fisher loves his 3's and vs our defense I expect us to drop bombs over Baghdad as Verner describes.

    That dude did nothing the majority of the year btw. He was on my team. I thought for sure the fisher kicker with the dumb big leg was a golden ticket to free points... Don't buy it

    Yea I actually dropped Zuerlein as soon as Bradford went down because I didn't like their chances of even making it in field goal range often.

    I replaced him with Dan Bailey, which turned out to be an excellent idea.

    I am in a difficult situation in one league where I might have to drop Prater to get a replacement kicker. I really don't want to do it. I did that last year with Blair Walsh, and it ended up costing me the championship.

    The doofus who set up this league decided to decrease bench spots, and this is only an 8 team league, so you basically have to drop pretty solid players just to get your bye week fillers. I hate it.

    Bye week blues....

    Should I start Colston or Shonn Green? Should be a no-brainer but Colston hasn't even cracked 2 points the past 3 weeks. And to make matters worse he's injured and questionable now. I'm thinking Green might be the way to go here. He's definitely a risk but Colston has been a turd this season.

    Another option I have is to pick up Emmanuel Sanders. He's pretty boom or bust as well though.

    Greene... just based purely off the fact that Coltson sucks. Everyone seems to think Graham will be covered by Cromartie, which could leave Colston covered by Kyle Wilson. Even so, I wouldn't play him. If Cromartie covers Colston, he would be completely shut down.

    If Kenny Stills is available I'd start him over both. Surely there's a decent option other than Sanders out there.

    Now someone respond to my post I made like four days ago!

    Stills and Sanders are both available. I was only leaning Sanders because he tends to get more targets than Stills based solely on the fact that he's the #2 for Pittsburgh. Sanders had 11 targets last week and Stills only had 4, although he took 2 of those to the house. But I don't expect Stills to score TDs every week on so few targets.

    Rivers.

    This one is pretty much a crap shoot but I think I'd go Moore and Thompkins.

    - Smith & Tate (since Jones already played)
    - I would've went Jackson and Bernard but if you benched Bernard already I'd say Jackson and Ridley.

    I honestly probably would have went CJ here but hopefully you started Bernard.

    Stills against the Jets #3 CB should be a great matchup though. They'll be too busy covering Graham. Just my opinion. He's still a guy who could put up a goose egg, but I'd definitely play him over Colston/Greene. I'm not gonna start Greene until I actually witness our commitment to him.

    I went Bernard/Ridley in that one league. In the other, I went with CJ - only because I'm superstitious. When I have him in my lineup we almost always win, but he has a terrible game.
