Lost by one. Bleh.

2-1 with the third highest point total, still feel pretty good. Time to hit the trade market and see if I can get one of the 0-3 teams to sell early. Some teams have no legit keeper options in a 14 team league, here's what i'm looking at.

M. Vick - 3rd
Jordan Cameron - 5th
Ben Tate - 6th
Julius Thomas - 11th
J. Gordon - 12th
D. Richardson - 13th

Leaning towards keeping Tate and Cameron at this point. I am going to try and use Gordon and Thomas as trade bait.

I'd definitely hang onto Gordon and use Thomas as trade bait.

I'm not sure I want to try and convince anyone in the league how valuable Tate could be for a 6th rd pick next year, Richardson could be worthless in a matter of weeks. I'd have to ask for a WR back in any deal for Gordon.

Thomas is a great TE play, his ceiling is a little limited by the three other options in the Den passing game. He's going to get a lot of TD's this year.

Jared Cook plays on a terrible team, I'd see if anyone wants him.

Yeah, I can't believe he's still getting TDs. I assume he's going to fall off at some point, hasn't happened yet though.

I expected a bit of a drop off, but this is a pleasant surprise from Thomas. I think Peyton certainly sees him as a good target. The guy has great hands and with a team like Denver with Thomas, Decker, and Welker, I really think Thomas is going to continue to put up good numbers as he will tend to be forgotten about and Peyton is so good with reading the field.

Alshon Jeffrey or Torrey Smith as WR2? Thinking Smith will probably be best since Baltimore is playing Buffalo and their secondary is banged up.

My opponent is going to be looking to claim a QB this week and I was thinking of claiming one just to spite him since I'm ahead. Is this a frowned upon move?

Am I crazy for thinking about benching A. Johnson and H. Nicks this week in favor of R. Streater and R. Broyles? It seems to me that Streater and Broyles will have the better matchups this week. Also thinking of starting I. Pead as my flex, do you think this smart or not?

Do it and use the QB as trade bait.

Pick two please:

David Wilson vs. KC
C.J. Spiller vs. Bal
Jacquizz Rodgers vs. NE
Le'Veon Bell vs. Min

I gotta think that I should stick with my top underachieving two and play the "law of averages" card with them...but Rodgers vs. NE is intriguing in place of one of them...the under-used Wilson with a bad matchup or the slightly dinged up Spiller who isn't as alone in the backfield as first thought...

Mulling whether to start Giovani Bernard (vs Cleveland) over Arian Foster (vs Seattle).

Both are bad match ups but Bernard seems on the upswing with Foster giving up carries to Tate.

But it's Foster, who seems like he can just pull out 3 goalline TD out of nowhere.
