That's what I had exactly going into last night...he had Manning, I had zilch. I won by 3. Which, really, was one because the fumble was attributed to Manning on the exchange with Montee Ball...which is merely a technicality, because Ball never possessed it, he cannot be charged with fumbling it. Either way, that provided the safety net down the stretch.

It was charged to Manning. Which is correct by rule.

I was hoping that was the case because he has hands of feet so far in his young NFL career...but I wasn't sure if you were a Montee Ball fanboy (for whatever reason) and I didn't really want to go down that road in case you were...

Should I still be holding on to Cobb? I am in last place, but have a decent shot at a points playoff spot. Rainey is available, and I have first waiver pick. Or should I drop some of my deadweight scrap for him and hold on to Cobb in the hopes that I make the playoffs?

Worked out for me.. I love when games come down to Monday night

I knew a guy who every weeks picks up a MNF kicker (if not avaliable ,SNF) just so he has larger chance of late week drama... While I like to THINK i can predict kickers (no one really can), so don't do this.. he frequently ends up with needing a kick or something at the end.

I mean.. it all depends. If you're dropping Dwyer.. sure hold on to Cobb, but probably can drop him

P Thomas, Spiller, Woodhead are my 3 RBs I'd consider dropping. Also have Charles and Andre Brown. Would Rainey start over any of them the rest of the way? (I guess the question is would Rainey start over Brown the rest of the way)

I mean... odds are no, but I think odds are higher that Rainey would start for you(especially with Brown's injury history than that Cobb will help you out).

PPR... thinking about doing this deal

I trade:
Sproles / Harry Douglas.. for Demaryius Thomas

I've had Andre Brown on bench

Lineup would go from: ADP, Lynch, (Sproles or A. Brown), Andre Johnson, Harry Douglas to....... ADP, Lynch, Andre Brown, Andre Johnson, D. Thomas

Do it???

Just worried about Brown's injures...

I also but in a claim for Rainey but since I am 10/12 on the waiver wire I doubt I will get him.

I am still in first place in my division but I play the guy who is one game behind me this week. I have McCoy and Wilson on bye's and a banged up K. Allen and J. Thomas that I have to keep an eye on all week. I think even if I lose this week and win in week 13 I can still sneak in as a wild card. Problem now is my week 13 opponent(3-8) is now a beast because of smart waiver wire pick ups (i.e. Foles, Cooper, Giants defense).

I am a big "second guesser" so it's been rough on me when I make a wrong move. Not going to lie had a sleepless night when I dropped Andre Brown a week before he came back. But than again I did pickup J. Thomas before he was on anybody else's radar.

Lol. Thursday night games all year is devastating then. It would be nice to just set it Sunday morning. And have limited opportunity to second guess.

Play long enough and you'll make those... I dropped Keenan Allen / knowshon Moreno / traded frank gore and d. Thomas for ray rice, was waiting for a trade 2 for 1 deal to go through to pick up j. thomas and hr he got picker up an hour before.. all of that happened this offseason in my dynasty league (keep everyone, so those moves will suck for awhile). Did pick up zac Stacy / Andre brown / traded for lynch, and am in 2nd place. Have to just accept you'll make moves that'll look dumb later on

Ok more advice.

As a back-up claim to my Rainey claim which I very much doubt I will get. Would you drop S. Greene for Mendenhall? I have to come up with a good Flex option this week since I am dealing with McCoy's bye week.

I plan on doing this:

QB: Stafford
RB1: Morris
RB2: Ivory
WR1: A. Johnson
WR2: K. Allen
Flex:
TE: J. Thomas
Def: Panthers
K: Akers

Right now my flex option are K. Wright, H. Nicks, or S. Greene. My other defense is the Texans and my backup kicker is Lindell.

Anybody want to offer up advice I am all ears.

Thanks,

I'd just hope for a Nicks TD. Dallas' defense has like 3 healthy players.

I have been hoping for a Nicks TD all year. It seems like Randle is getting them all even Cruz's share of them.
