    I'm such a damn noob, and my team literally sucks a pile of crap. Yet I'm somehow 3-1 thus far.

    My Team lineup for week 5 as it sits right now:

    QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Ten
    RB Darren Sproles NO
    RB Da'Rel Scott NYG
    RB/WR DeAngelo Williams (RB) Car -Keeper-
    WR Wes Welker Den
    WR DeSean Jackson Phi
    WR Brandon Gibson Mia
    TE Antonio Gates SD
    D/ST Texans
    K Adam Vinatieri Ind

    On my bench:

    QB RGIII Wsh (Bye week) -Keeper- for now...
    QB Carson Palmer Ari
    RB Michael Bush Chi
    RB Johnathan Franklin GB
    WR Leonard Hankerson Wsh (Bye week)
    TE Dallas Clark Bal
    D/ST Cowboys
    K Greg Zuerlein StL

    On my IR spot:
    WR Michael Crabtree SF (Out until november)

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Right now I have two friends who are offering trades.

    Trade A consists of:

    I pickup from him:
    WR Kenbrell Thompkins NE
    QB Russell Wilson Sea
    RB Joique Bell Det
    RB Danny Woodhead SD

    I send to him:
    WR Wes Welker Den
    QB RGIII Wsh
    RB Michael Bush Chi

    The second trade from someone else is as follows:

    I pickup:
    WR Danny Amendola NE

    I send to him:
    WR Wes Welker Den


    I'm not entirely comfortable getting rid of Welker, especially for a WR I've never even heard of. Welker is consistantly near the top of my list on fantasy points every week even though Manning has TONS of targets to throw to.

    The second trade just dumbfounds me, I don't get why he would want the #2 receiver for the #1 receiver?

    I wouldn't do either trade. Amendola has been out with a groin injury and welder has been putting up solid numbers.

    I never would have spotted that if you guys hadn't said they let Scott go. Thanks. Just redid my lineup.

    QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Ten
    RB Darren Sproles NO
    RB DeAngelo Williams (RB) Car -Keeper-
    RB/WR Johnathan Franklin GB
    WR Wes Welker Den
    WR DeSean Jackson Phi
    WR Brandon Gibson Mia
    TE Antonio Gates SD
    D/ST Texans
    K Adam Vinatieri Ind

    Franklin is still questionable to be put in though. Last week I forgot to take Michael Bush out and scored exactly 0 points with him.

    You're hurting bad on RB. Who is on waiver? Can you flex someone else in then Franklin?

    Wes and Jackson are must starts at WR.

    Alright we've got:

    Chris Ogbonnava Cle who's probable.
    Andre Ellington Ari
    Ronnie Hillman Den
    LeGarrette Blount NE
    Roy Helu Wsh
    Daniel Thomas Mia
    Marcel Reece Oak who's Questionable.
    Vonta Leach Bal
    Brandon Bolden NE - Questionable
    Bruce Miller SF
    Ronnie Brown SD
    Jackie Battle Ten
    Felix Jones Pit
    Donald Brown Ind
    Jordan Todman Jac
    Alfonso Smith Ari
    Chris Polk Phi
    Marcus Thigpen Mia
    Anthony Sherman KC

    and tons more. Any talent in this list that isn't second/third string and barely going to get any snaps? Only name I really know is Donald Brown (I'm a colts fan).

    I'd ultimately like to pick up 3 decent Running Backs, I'd be willing to part with:

    RB Michael Bush Chi
    RB Johnathan Franklin GB
    WR Brandon Gibson Mia
    RB Da'Rel Scott NYG (now that I know he's in free agency)

    Blount or Bolden are options if Ridley doesn't play this week.

    What about Rashad Jennings? He available?

    Try trading.

    Only trades I've been offered will take Welker from my team. I'm not willing to part with him. The guy I'm playing this week has Rashad Jennings.

    Started to look through the waiver wire recommendations and ESPN reviews of players.

    I dropped Scott, Michael Bush, Dallas Clark (he hasn't been getting many receptions lately), and Palmer (Don't need 3 QBs).

    Then picked up Donald Brown, Blount (I know NE is mostly a passing team), Charles Clay (Need a TE when Gates goes on bye in Wk 8), and Robert Woods.

    I have now:

    Fitzpatrick
    Sproles
    DeAngelo Williams
    Donald Brown
    Welker
    DeSean Jackson
    Woods
    Gates
    Texans
    Vinatieri

    as my starters for week 5. What do you think? Still not the greatest of teams, wish I'd done more research before the draft.

    How many people in the league? Those are some slim pickings. Seems like 12+ player league?

    It's a ten person league.

    Six of them have been doing this league for 8 years now. So they know the wr and rb's to grab at the draft.

    Ahhh. Yeah you got hosed man. I'm in 2 leagues. Doing TERRIBLE this year, but I'm rolling out the browns team basically today hoping for some points. Gordon, Cameron, and McGahee. Ugh.

    I'd see what you can package together for a good trade to add starting value to your roster.

    That's why I do fraction points. No ties.

    Here's the ridiculous part. My team is supposed to be so horrible but my three wins were wins by 20+ points, (20, 30, 25) and my one loss is from a mere 8 points to the guy who was undefeated until week four.

    The guy who runs this board, his wife is 0-4, but is projected to beat me in week 11. haha

    Awesome.

    I've been getting killed. Here is my big money league. I have no RB's and no one is trading. Worst part is, I have highest points against. Well over 500 in a .5ppr format. 12 Man league drafts suck.


    Starting Lineup
    Stafford
    Megatron
    Gordon
    McGahee
    Rashad Jennings
    Cameron
    Fitzgerald in FLEX
    Zuerlein
    St. Louis

    Bench:
    Snelling
    Lawfirm
    Bowe
    M. Bennett
    SJax
    James Jones.

    Here's what I'm up against this weekend...

    Matt Ryan
    Arian Foster
    Matt Forte
    Giovani Bernard
    Brandon Marshall
    Reggie Wayne
    Josh Gordon
    Julius Thomas
    49ers D/ST
    Garrett Hartley

    ESPN projects his total to 163 and mine to 124. I've come back from bigger deficits than this, but I'm actually kinda scared, cause I won't hear the end of it.
